Addicting game , but i feel like it isnt finished.

The 2 first cities were perfect, you're learning slowly what are weapons uses, and try to get some stuff. Then it went wrong : My team was made of a spear user, a 2handed sword user & 2 x1 swords user.
I didnt skilld both shield bash & throw to be fair (cause that combo is damn imbalanced). All of them were focused on strengh & dexterity.

As long as you get gear from new cities, you may win no matter you're completely underleveled. I finished Roma with a team of lvl 35-36.

What's good :
- Much possibilities , even if you cant cross talents trees a lot
- Backgrounds & animation
- Extra challenges to get some gold & craft material

What's wrong :
- Slave market : wtf with their price? A slave level 6 cost as much as a legendary gear from roma

- Imbalances : My 2handed sword user is kind of useless. Power attack deals more damages than armor break, cost less MP & talent points and can affect HPs.
Meanwhile, as i said earlier, shield users, especially with a spear, are a pain to kill. Even if you hit (good luck with that), you have to finish him : If you aim at the shielded arm or legs, it still can throw; if you aim at the spear arm, it'll shield bash and be moreover hard to hit; if you aim at the body / head , you have even lesser chances to hit. All of this + passive regeneration and here's the nightmare (Cause regeneration heals more than you bleed). I cant tell if you can grow over level 60 (completed all achievements but the bugged ones when i reached level 46) but if you can, life boost could enhance regen also

- AI. I won't talk about their way to focus, much people did it already, but about their stats. They're kind of balanced, and that's pretty much why you can beat them even when you're underleveld. They hit as hard as you & the only difference is their talents : They have combo x4 while you got it x2, they throw nets , ...
They should spec in some stats : If you face a full of strengh team, you're better to bring shields & some speedies. If you face a full of speed team , bring some charism & intimidate them before they combo you do death, etc...
You would have to train more than 3 gladiators so you may face every situation.

- A little lack of information : You cant cancel a missclick of the stats / talents board, nor see what it exactly do (e.g. critical boost : How many chances do i have to crit, how much extra damages does a crit grant?)

Hopefully i made it clear, english isn't my first language (soz @ grammar) . Also i dont want to be rude, i just think i should explain what i disliked so we'll have a better update / sequel

Besides the few bugs like challenges not working or speed seeming entirely useless sometimes and even the daily reward NEVER working, the gameplay is solid and the character customization in skills/stats is fun. but i wanna point out the crazy overpowered throw/shield bash teams, i use it and honestly its far to strong

3 members each with a shield with high %block chance and a throwable spear. put all 3 in the back row and spam throw on your foes while 1 keeps shield bash up as 1 person is always focused so make sure that target is the one shield bashing. you will find that a strong shield with 10 points in shield bash and mild defense stat will block 70-80% of the attacks thrown at you.

also due to back row giving you stronger damage mitigation and throw ignoring this so your damage is not hampered. also due to having throw AND shield bash, you can not stop them from taking out 1 limb like others (arms for 2-h fighters or legs for dual-wield) taking out a spear arm still lets you bash, taking out the shield arm or leg still lets you throw. so you are forced to focus body or head to take them out fast which happens to be your highest armored parts and hardest to hit.
