I've not played my usual XP farming scene for a few days and today, I have to say the extremely slow rate of Focus regeneration made the game quite disjointed and unenjoyable. After each monster I killed I was forced to retreat to a safe place and wait for a minute or two while my focus recovered. I just had to hope that the monster didn't respawn while I was recovering. If I got attacked part way through a melee, I'd often run out of focus completely! This did not happen last week! Whatever has changed, please can it be changed back!! On a similar theme, I made one of my periodic forays into Elysium Mine yesterday. This too was considerably harder that my previous visits. It may be the same focus regen issue or it may be that my skills have been de-buffed in some way or perhaps the monsters in the mine have been strengthened. On previous visits I've been able to survive and gather gems and ore, providing I was careful. This time I died 3 times and needed several regeneration potions. This game is hard enough! Please don't make it any harder.
