Ok here are my quick thoughts on the patch. Over the PvP ROCKS now. The server is hoppping with people. Would be kind of hard to lvl at this point due to no one using the special PvP areas they have added. The mini games are doing pretty good also. Crafting needs a major over haul now that gems are nerfed.
Over all I think this was a major shot of caffeen for the game and with the new Game Director now we should be seeing major things happening also!
Get on and check it out if you like PvP you will love this.
