Would not be the fun of experimenting and searching the build worn off?
no dominant strategy just means don't make any one path too powerful with respect to others. the joy of exploring all "paths to glory" will be unaffected by this, if its done correctly.
hey Norman after while, in fact I am not much different with Sunandshadow's opinion... what is instictively felt is that balance can be held up to some amount of variables for the character adjustment. But this rich pool of xs' is needed to have certain amount of builds possible. And probably if someone can bind more variables to his build it becames less linear than the other builds and thus will probably become unbalanced...
So the question is isn't rich variety of builds possible higher value for the player than the perfect balance?
