First of all, should I bother starting Lusternia at all right now? I understand there's some sort of major overhaul of the combat system in the works. Would I be better off waiting for this to come out rather than spending a bunch of time learning the current system only to have it change on me?
Second, I'm currently leaning towards playing a Nihilist but going over the forums I gather that the game has a problem with unbalanced populations and that Magnagora and the Nihilists in particular are significantly larger than other factions. Am I right here? I don't want to make this problem worse and while my character write-up I've done doesn't really work outside Magnagora I could probably adjust it for another guild or just start over and go with a different faction.
