We had a peek into the CBT build. It#DY#s far from complete at the moment, but you can have an idea of the Stats distribution revamp for the 4 classes you#DY#ll be playing with come July 2008.
Seems to make more sense now!
The Archer,being used to trekking through the wilderness, is quite well-rounded in terms of stats-distribution. Not the fastest but without any noticeable weak spots.
Thieves, who dart through their urban environment as the fastest class, have the power necessary for street brawls but lower Intelligence (ouch) because they don#DY#t require that much mana.
The scholarly Magician is the lowest in Vitality but high in Intelligence (spell points) and has quite balanced damage-power and speed despite their physical fragility.
And of course as trained combatants Warriors are similar to the Thieves in damage rate, but sacrifice a little speed in place of sheer physical hardiness.
