I think we should allow players to have both LW and DW if they wish. 60 PPS is a heavy price and should come with a big reward. Maybe even remove the ability to see things in the dark if that's a concern with this.
Agree, seems stupid you can only play for 50% of the day due to the ingame bonuses being that important, especially for penting.
Since penting is so much more lucrative than mining, I imagine a lot of high level folks would love to have lw, dw, athlete, and partial mercenary. You're level 124, right? Would you go that route if possible, Poeisbetter?
