I'm quite happy that Stage 1 of the HR transition seems to be complete. Yes, transiting from a rate to another isn't just Base Levels and Stats... there are other things involved as well. Looking forward, we should be working on Stage 2...
Stage 1: Base Level, Stats Adjustment, Class Balancing, Custom MvPs Revamped.
Stage 2: Custom Items Balancing (other bonuses other than stats), Custom Monsters refined.
Stage 3: Quest Requirements Revamped, Custom Monsters fine-tuning.
It'll take time to get the system right. Please bear with us.
Nothing is cast in stone.
