Agreed, but I guess it's easier for an EA build to put in six parties than have the whole party creation interface. Once the Tinkerer and Mind Thief get added, the number of combinations goes up to 15, so I really hope they add party creation instead of a messy fifteen long options menu.I'm surprised that post was coherent, with how late it was when I was posted. Yeah, I realized today all the possible class combinations were accounted for. Still feels a little odd choosing a group instead of picking my characters- but I guess right now (and maybe always in adventure mode?) you won't be retiring characters.
I do think Adventure mode will be non-retiring though.
Given the community's response to durability, if that wasn't the dev's plan I am sure it will be now. People hate it.The compendium mentions that durability is just for adventure mode. I suppose they could still implement for story mode, but it makes less sense when characters are going to retire and take their stuff with them.
