While I agree with the direction of much of what's been said, I'm not sure I agree with the magnitude. In the hands of a gnome mage, devices have great power, which is what they're supposed to for that particular race. What would the experience have been like playing a half-troll or half-orc mage? What would it be for a human? The danger of monsters have been greatly increased, what would the experience have been like without "monsters learn" activated?

I don't think game balance decisions can be made so readily based on the few play-throughs we've had so far, especially the degree of what those changes should be.
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
