^Yeah, I know they at least made the combat faster. And I like the knight gundam addition. Was planning on maybe getting it later on, when it's cheaper. Just can't see myself playing it long considering the beastly games coming out very soon.

You also pick a starting class, which only really effects your starting stats and equipment. You build your guy up however you want after that. So a Bandit or Thief can still end up being a magic powerhouse, and wouldn't be any weaker than a guy who started as a sorcerer, so long as you build your dude that way. And you can find all the other equipment in the game. Here is a pic of the classes (Decently large pic warning):
I think I'm going Bandit or Warrior. Maybe Pyromancer for a hand axe. Whatever looks the coolest.
You also pick a gift if you want one. It's been said everything you can pick as a gift can be found elsewhere in the game, except for the master key thing. Which seems to be just a one use key to open something. Most the things are consumables besides the binoculars, a ring that gives a slight HP regain effect, a witch ring that I don't know what it does, and some pendant thing that I also don't know what it does. Seems like just shit to give you a little help in the beginning of the game.
