The server is getting a bit easier, as most find it hard. I have made great progress in scaling down some baddies for rogues and mages. Fighters are just too darn awesome, and ened no adjustments.
Look for the new changes as Hope and Despair gets closer to finishing the main map areas. From then on out, you'll see more contests, holiday payouts, and the like !!!
Thanks to all the regulars that play Hope and Despair.
