Sacred started out OK. But the dev's of the game just couldn't leave well enough alone. First they Nurfed the speed(Running) and Attack Speed. Then accessed large penalties for using an item that is higher level requirement then your character is currently at. Then they nurfed Experience points gain, so now it takes for ever to get to the next level. Items for the characters are now useless to get from the merchant in town. When at one point you could get set items from the merchant. The dev's have also made most of the Combat Arts useless as it takes too long to regenerate them while others just don't work anymore. Also like the other reviewer said you can't take 5 steps before you have to kill a mob of bad guys, and that gets old really quick.
I just think there must be too many dev's in the kitchen and they have ruined the game play to the point that Sacred is no longer fun to play.
