ofc it does make a lot of sense I am sure you will figure everything out and this server is gonna be even better than last year's one.
my 2 cents:
at some point, mages dominate server do to aoe skills and spots that are easily farmable by them. DD's, especialy single target ones can't compete with lvling speed of mages, so maybe some extra(e.g. change some not useable) spot with solo mobs with extra xp with melee vulnerability?
Daggers aren't that good here if you don't have anyone to boost you, and what's more, Bounty Hunter has most skills from that class which imo destroyed daggers on last server.
Tanks, they need gap closer, pull or jump -like skills
archers, general boost to compete with others
last, but not least - Bards. Making bd/sws into one class was an awesome idea. What they really lack though is skills to make some dmg. Give them a minor cubic+offensive 1-2 skills (blows / or heavy dd sword skills) with even less power, but still enough to be fun at pvps/other actions. This would make them a class not for box purpose only ofc with added MP
it's just an idea I hope you think about. Thank you, and once again - see you at OBT
