Alganon Systems & Data Designer Josef "Minuvo" Shindler shines some light on some of the class balance changes players can expect with the launch of the game's upcoming first expansion "The Dawning," in this latest preview published on the official Alganon website.
Shindler notes that in general the healers and mages are in a pretty good spot, but they admit that the Ranger and Soldier classes aren't too hot at the moment:
There's been a lot of flurry about rangers on the forums. We are listening to your concerns and agree some changes need to be made. One of the first things on our list is to alter how abilities affect your ranged damage. The Predation tree is going to see some huge changes but the overall feel is going to be the same. Additionally you're going to see some higher definition done on group synchronization. We want rangers to be much, much stronger in groups.
The recent soldier changes are the first step in an effort to develop different play styles for each specialization. We didn't like how anger was really weak at low levels. We didn't like how you could almost ignore it at high levels. The normalization is the first step and you'll be seeing future changes that will make anger generation a strategy of choice instead of necessity
Changes for all four classes are outlined in the full preview which you can read here.
