Shadow is not Balanced yet.. i Guess this will be fixed later..but if you wanna lvl up Your armor you dont want the Shield.. becouse you dont get damage Points/exp on Your armor when your Shield are up.. but is good and Nice to have if you only gonna do hunting..
That's a shame. My friend can't even survive in a fight so he has to lead a party around or get me to tank them so he can kill them. Hopefully it gets fixed soon. The crafting is nice and all but I just don't have time to do it. I'd rather have a balanced-ish game than have crafting. I would like the new gui to come though. Looking forward to that.
