It's a great game to invest your time into, because once you reach end game. This is what you'll discover.
It isn't broken, totally normal. The GM balanced the game several years ago and it is very fun to play, especially as the Champion Class and getting knocked out by mages and not being able to reciprocate. PvP is great, totally balanced. It is the most balanced game I have ever seen. Everyone should play this game because they will definitely enjoy it!
