Console players are terrible in part because the interface mechanism (the controller) is terrible for accuracy and precision, relative to the KB+M.
Considering the size of most of the enemies in this game, precision isn't really necessary. You might be able to make an argument for mystics to not use a controller due to their lock on heal, but for any other class if you can't hit an enemy in this game using a controller a mouse isn't going to suddenly make it easier.
I assume most of them were meant to be made via crafting, but due to the fact that there's an achievement for 500 while the cap is 410 makes me think crafting is in limbo as far as recipies go right now.
Not a ladder. You have to head back to the entrance to the area then cross the bridge. The whole bottom area is a dead end.
The problem is the gear you craft after level 50ish is a design that is exclusive to crafting. I still haven't seen a design to make gear that looks like what drops around that level range. At least for tailoring anyway.
I think if I can summon fire and icestorms, I can regulate my body temperature.
Blood spurts when you hit something, but no gore. Overall it's not to bad as far as violence goes.
