In general, the idea of weapons being a sort of class type is good to me. This will hopefully lead to a more scissors/paper/rock type mechanic in 1 v1, and group fights having specialists of sorts.
The new mods seem redundant, but i will have to look at resources and what the actual buffs/debuffs are. If armor pen is the same with oil as the current mod, why would i use it.
The battle flag is intersting. good for arenas builds. I just hope an admin version comes out for placement on a private server for raid/fight zones. A place where and admin can plant a flag (no claim, just a large area), and people can raid within the area etc.
I know there will be “hidden” gems they didn’t spoil, but in general i was happy with the combat focus, but disappointed that we are still, at minimum, at least another patch away from siege and raiding mechanics or admin UI stuff for private owners. That is if they ever address those tbh.
