Yeah, if anything it appears as it climbing very long ladders is the equivalent of 5 feet of movement or something, you race up those ladders faster than regular terrain as it seems. Seems like another Larian quirk, as it was basically like that in the DOS games too. I don't even care too much about that, but I am more troubled by the extreme presence of height differences in EVERY single combat encounter, making those things a regular thing and not even fun anymore. Now it's all centered around climbing and jumping up... all the time. I just PRAY for fights that are close quarters, face to face. Those fights are VERY few.
