In my mind any balancing of classes at all is a bit ridiculous until we get the combat parameters finalised. I'm hoping the changes AVRC promised will be a big shift in this direction. Once we can actually block, feint, chamber etc properly and this is balanced; then we can argue about individual class balance.
@AVRC wants to know the number of pitchforks and torches we will carry to the parameter shift revelation.
