Just wanted to make a post about some things I think could need some finetuning.
I am aware that most likely some (or even most) are things that you already know of and/or are planning to change anyway. Some may even be so obvious I should not have to name them, but I still wanna write them down for feedback. I will go from things I deem “most important” to “less important”.
!! Please note that I obviously don’t want you to tell how to do your jobs. I like the game how it is already. But I also know from experience that even the most obvious feedback may be useful if not simply to remind people of the basics. !!
First some general stuff:
- Why do the crafting essences go into your normal bag first?
Having to click a button just for them to automatically move to the other bag is not really usability friendly. I don’t know if it is a technical issue, a size limit issue (size limit on your crafting bag so you have to gather them at your other bag or stash at some point) or a simple design philosophy thing. If it is the last thing, all I can say is, it is annoying and unnecessary. Either go full PoE and let people figure out what to keep and what not themselves or go full Diablo and just let them drop in the crafting bag immediately.
- Add more information towards the skills in specific
What I mean with that is that I can’t really see how strong my skill is or what changes when I put a skillpoint somwhere.
For example I still don’t know if putting a skillpoint in a skill that passively adds ignite chance to my melee attacks actually works on my Flame Reave. It would be way easier to have an interface that just shows you the most important stats of that specific skill (aka. DPS, ignite chance etc.).
- Remove post restriction on bug section
A forum related thing. I noticed that as a “new account” I am limited to 4 threads a day. Which is useful to some extent, I get it. But at the same time I read that you tell people to make an extra thread for every bug and no bug collections (correct me if I am wrong here). So this is kinda contradictory to what the system allows you to do.
3.1. or add a “Report Bug” feature ingame. That would be even better.
I thought about this point and realised that I did an oopsie while thinking. Move on :^)
- Responsiveness and “feel” of the menus:
I think that one is kinda obvious, considering it is alpha I expect it to get better with time, but right now it just feels clunky (especially the inventory).
- Add a preview of how much you actually get more when you level up a skill
We see WHAT gets the bonus but I cant preview how much it actually will go up if I put another point in it (correct me if I am wrong here and I just were too stupid to find that function).
Add one :^) Even if it is just basic like “ignore xxx quality”.
I did not play THAT much so I may add some things here and there if I find it worthy of mentioning.
