I mean we are in a combat alpha which some players has this "especial" benefit and others dont ... i think it might be something easy to fix and brings more adjusted combat situations together the implementations ghat have been made.Who cares about them? They will be gone after persistent state.
There isnt much to do right now then fight ... and still a combat alpha, so makes perfect sense to fix even tought the persistent stage it will be only end of march?
They looking for 4k players to play the game ... so some aspects of combat is important too to make ppl fixed on the game bring more players etc.
They should dedicate someone just to hear combat questions , bugs related to combat, etc.
Cause when goes persistent ppl will start to lose things and many new players will get mad.
