So you're willing to trade the ability to know everything about everything in the late game for the ability to see everything about a single item in the early game? Ok, that's a choice.

I think that in this area, and probably others, this is where personal preference makes a big difference to what we perceive as "better". There's no objective "better" in a spectrum.

I don't, overall, disagree with what you are saying but I don't think your label is correct. Is clearing levels a newbie trap? It's certainly sub-optimal but it is still a winning strategy (if...

Or wrong. My favourite "rule" of English is the best known:

So we go 3.5 (end of the previous era) to 4.0 to 4.1 then straight to 5.0? 4.0 and 4.1 were not significant departures from 3.5.

You've previously mentioned stepping down after all the changes are done, so I'd suggest that the 4.x series should be your domain. Let 5.x be the domain of your replacement.

That's the guy. Might not have been the source of the name if you are correct (and you certainly seem like you are).

He was a character in Eye of the Beholder (1 or 2, not sure which) that the party could recruit. He had a distinctive, ugly appearance and was a mage.
