I just played for about an hour and a half and I honestly forgot how fun this game is. I was playing my Ranger/Elementalist and while I'm still lacking any really solid Elementalist skills, it was still pretty fun to use varying combos of the ranger skills I have.
I have to admit: level 20 henchmen KICK ASS. I just went out into Talus Chute and was beating up on pretty much everything that came my way. It was decent XP, too.
