No I completed book I 2 times before that and book II once before that, but this is book 3, so reviewer should completed 2 previous so this would be his 3rd attempt with basically same gameplay.

Again Ecshalon is easier than it's role models or even modern games like underrail or ToME(I know this is roguelike but it's designed more like regular cRPG set to hardcore).If he played games like those he should be able to fair well with anything Eschalon throws at him.

But he can start new game when he sees his build isn't working.And book III is short so you can completed several times it takes you to complete regular RPG.And from what I can see he didn't finish game so he made review on several hours of experience.

Balancing is off but it's not "shity" and classes are flexible so it's easy to make hybrid rogue so which ever class you make you can make viable build with it.Many games that are considered all time classics had some balancing issues and useless classes it doesn't necessary make it a bad game.
