This is my first alpha, and i know there is love for all kind of games, and this kind of game are for a niche taste, i just wonder if its a "Me" problem only.
I understand some items can be heavier then others, and as some people mentioned, some items need fixing, and balancing but, I did 3 characters:
A warrior with 18 str, with gear was 25str and while killing stuff, weight limit caught my eye, but wasn't a problem yet, i could carry enough, while holding bandages/remedies, the stones and branches for the campfire.
Then i made a mage and weight started worrying me.
Then i made a Dex+Per char for a "Ranger", and weight on items was a real problem, because, and now i know, i only had 6 str, but could not carry anything beside the "essentials". I noticed you are not supposed to kill mobs with auto attacks, but still, some mobs you could, and arrow fly away fast.
If u want to keep the "Realism" allow people to use wagon to go on group expeditions when people want to horde/stack a bunch of materials for example, just a thought, even for pvp its a plus, finding some group with a cart full of stuff.
I just want to say as well, what i really like is kill stuff :), i also enjoyed a lot the skills, how you find them, and the setups you can do because how the memory works.
Edit: i guess if there is hunter roll on a guild, i prefer that, going out and bring stuff back, such as gold and materials for craft/enchants.
