Created a Hunter and Rogue to test around with. Since you no longer start with food/water your HP/MP regeneration is amazingly fast. Which from what I read, goes down little-by-little until you hit 15, where it's then normalized. So that's cool.
Plus Rogue's start with dual daggers, which is so amazingly OP at those levels, oh lord. lol
Hunter's with an axe is nice too. I usually can make it through the 1-5 area in ~30 mins. Now it's more like 20.
