Thanks for taking the time to put together your thoughts! Here are some answers for you:
- I'll take a look at the scroll weight problem and include a fix in the next update.
- Regarding the combat dummy - I think having it do actual damage is useful for testing your resilience and triggerable effects, but agree that I could add another tip or two to inform players about resting to recover health.
- The freeform nature of equipment slots is very intentional, and if someone wants to wear 6 different kinds of goggles or a glass table, more power to them.
I completely sympathize with your desire to have the game convey more information, but that's not what FARA is about. Ideally, you're supposed to try different things out and do you best to remember what works well and what doesn't. If you haven't already, please be sure to join us on Discord! https://discordapp.com/invite/TxECEtn. The community is pretty active, and there are many players willing to offer tips and tricks on getting by.
