I noticed a new thing today. The critical hits appear to splash up on screen now. I have seen Mega, Super, and a few other words indicate that the critical hit animations (which occur whether or not you use the critical strike attack) would play. It is a good thing to see the splash occuring.
I wondered why the critical hits needed to be called mega or super though. A critical hit is a super event and should just be called a critical strike. I like the improvement but what is the difference? I love the Bison Champion stomp.
I just had the fun time of experiencing this in cool ranch while "trying" to finish the tax relief quest. Wow I was shown the door and in a hurry. As I went from tower to tower the chance of the enemy having a new hit became higher and higher. Finally at the north tower it was every round from every bad guy. I am hoping this was a glitch and not part of the game from now on. If it is to be the new style of playing maybe changing the damage rating down or have this a quest that only a higher levels can complete? Anyways, it seems like it can be a great way to play as long as we are at least giving a chance to lose with our dignity intact? :-)

I understand what you are saying, but I think the terms are in a more correct here than in W101. The order is a little strange in Wizard I suspect because they didn't have all of the terms for new levels of awesomocity worked out from the start, so they have to keep thinking of new ones. I always look forward to seeing what they come up with next! (And my wizards are falling behind... all that piratin' that's going on, don't you know?).
