After some investigation I have experienced the problem you mentioned
in your last post with regards to speed. The speed of the Java client
may well vary from person to person based upon their operating system
and consequent browser type. Though don't quote me on that.
Regardless of any gripes people may have with regards to profession
I believe the overall balance to be equal. Seers with cursing will be
just as effective as a Sorcerer with plenty of demons. As will a Knight
with many poisons on their blades. Inevitably, it will boil down to
who has the fastest mind and most experienced tactics to employ.
Having said that, I will arrange a fighters tournament to be held over
the next week or so for those who wish to take part in the gem quest
to practice their use of the client in real combat. It will also give us
all a chance to see whether or not the Java client itself is up to full
speed combat. The Underworld may well prove to be a good place for this.
