If I am understanding everything correctly, at 30th level, a character will have access to
2 at will powers (same as a first level character)
4 daily powers
4 encounter powers
7 utility powers.
Am I wrong in feeling that this is amazingly narrow for a dimigod (which is what many 30th level characters are).
At 30th level, you will have players still doing 3d10 damage; something that first level warlocks are capable of.
By no means am I a power gamer, but I am truely confused by the new setup. I also feel I should add that I am not anti-4e. I've been playing for a very long time (since early in second edition), so I've seen the game go through drastic changes before.
Sadly, I'm just not understanding the new one very well. Perhaps the pieces will come together more once I actually play a character up to that level. Perhaps there are connections I'm not seeing yet which will enable 30th level characters to be more potent and diverse than what I am seeing.
But, I am not seeing it. And I want to. I want high levels to mean something.
