That sentance about combat changes could mean many things. New armours (Robes and Leather) will need to have balanced protections with Metal. Thats a combat change Any new specilizations thats a combat change Making 1H and Shield viable thats a combat change Having a reason to use earth spells, that would be a combat change Etc etc Dont freak out yet. There is stuff we have all been asking for, for years that has a impact however slight on combat. That would be a combat change.
