Which are the worst balance changes in Rebirth?

The time has come for the final update of the year, version 4.4! Included in this update are a plethora of changes including a total rethinking of weapon reach, speed and minumum damage, expanded tombs, overhauled kogoruhn, balance changes, bugfixes, mesh improvements and much more! I hope you enjoy this update!

Morrowind Rebirth Fixes
* Fixed an issue where the warhammer 'Skull Crusher' mesh scale was incorrect (if you already have Rebirth installed please remove 'w_art_warhammer_crusher' from morrowind/data files/w)
* Fixed an issue where Mehra Milo were to take you somewhere 'private' where the ordinators can't hear you, only to have one standing next to you during the conversation.
* Fixed an issue where the Skeleton Pirate Captain in Himmelhorst Barrow didn't have his unique weapon 'Seasplitter".
* Fixed an issue where enchanted marksmen gear were too common in crates due to a typo in leveled-lists.
* Fixed issues where changes in Rebirth caused issues with the pathfinding for Fargoth.
* Fixed an issue where the player were able to hop into the water during the prologue.
* Fixed an issue where the topic 'kwama egg' was accidentely removed from the game.
* Fixed an issue where Beldoh the Undying was accidentely removed from the game.
* Fixed issues where companion spells were set to self instead of touch.
* Fixed an issue where the Robe of Mysticism had the wrong enchantment.
* Fixed an issue where Blighted Shalks and Scribs were not hostile.
* Fixed an issue where the entrance to Ainab was partially buried.
* Fixed a massive amount of typos.


Morrowind Rebirth Changes
* Player made potions were somewhat too powerful in v 4.3. Therefore I've tweaked some stats to what I believe will make playermade potions useful, while not being too overpowered.
* The service refusal list have been greatly expanded along with new and more varied dialogue.
* Dark Brotherhood Assassins will not attack the player until he/she reaches level 15.
* Dunmer Delicacies, Balmora has undergone an overhaul to make it feel more realistic.
* Removed Tribunal/Bloodmoon ingredients from traders and containers in Vvardenfell.
* There's now a small chance that urns contain remains of the dead.
* Removed Imperial Skeleton Warriors/Archers from leveled-lists.
* Dialogue and text tweaks and additions.
* Landscape improvements.


Morrowind Rebirth Additions

* Ashlander traders now offer items that are more specific to Ashlanders like Hides, Netch/Chitin weapons and armor, Ashlander shields and other misc items. More specific items will be added in the future.

Imperial Legion Diversity
* Legioniers are no longer clones and there are now a large variety of both female/male guards of different races.

Anti-cloned Imperial Legion

Imperial Guards are no longer clones


Ancestral Tombs Overhaul
* An work in progress overhaul to expand or improve most of the tombs on Vvardenfell. This overhaul includes for example new areas, new loot and misc items. Note that not all tombs have been expanded, as some are large enough, and were only in need of cluttering. As of now the following Tombs have been overhauled:
- Alen Ancestral Tomb
- Andalen Ancestral Tomb
- Andalor Ancestral Tomb
- Andas Ancestral Tomb
- Andavel Ancestral Tomb (minor cluttering)
- Andrano Ancestral Tomb
- Andrethi Ancestral Tomb
- Andules Ancestral Tomb
- Aralen Ancestral Tomb

Tomb Overhaul - Andrano Ancestral Tomb

Tomb Overhaul - Andalor Ancestral Tomb

Tomb Overhaul - Andalen Ancestral Tomb

Tomb Overhaul - Alen Ancestral Tomb

Kogoruhn Overhaul
* Kogoruhn has recived a major facelift with much more clutter, enemies and loot. The areas affected are the following:
- Kogoruhn, Hall of Maki
- Kogoruhn, Hall of Phisto
- Kogoruhn, Hall of the Watchful Touch
- Kogoruhn, Vault of Aerode
- Kogoruhn, Dome of Pollock's Eve
- Kogoruhn, Dome of Urso

* New Armor
- Ashlander shields (3 variations), complementing the 2 already present in the mod.

* New Clothing
- Traveler's Robe
- Healer's Robe


Balance

Weapons
* The swing-speed of all weapons have been standardized. Previously speed was mainly dependant on the material and the weight of the weapons, but this causes too many
inbalances making some weaker weapon types have higher dps than stronger weapon types. While I understand that this is a bold move I strongly believe this is the
way to make different weapon-categories more interesting and varied.


Speed
- Warhammers 0.5
- Battle Axes 0.6
- Claymores 0.7
- Halberds: 0.75
- Dai-Katanas 0.8
- Spears: 0.9
- Broadswords 0.95
- Longswords: 1.0
- War Axes 1.05
- Katanas: 1.1
- Maces: 1.1
- Sabers: 1.15
- Shortswords: 1.2
- Staves: 1.25
- Wakizashis: 1.3
- Clubs: 1.35
- Daggers 1.6
- Tantos 1.7

* The reach of all weapons have been standardized (with some individual tweaks). The new values now matches the visual reach in-game.

Reach
- Warhammers 0.7
- Battle Axes 0.7
- Claymores 1.3
- Dai-Katanas 1.3
- Halberds: 1.2 (Iron) 1.4 (Steel/Dwemer/Glass) 1.5 (Ebony)
- Spears: 1.3 (Chitin/Iron/Silver/Dwemer/Deadric) 1.6 (Ebony) 1.8 (Steel/Adamantium)
- Broadswords 0.5
- Longswords: 0.6
- War Axes 0.4
- Katanas: 0.6
- Maces: 0.4
- Sabers: 0.6
- Shortswords: 0.4
- Staves: 1.0 (Dwemer/Dreugh) 1.1 (Wooden/Silver) 1.15 (Ebony/Deadric) 1.20 (Glass/Steel)
- Wakizashis: 0.4
- Clubs: 0.4
- Daggers 0.3
- Tantos 0.3

* The minumum damage of all weapons have been standardized (maximum damage varies depending on material and weapon-type). This will provide a framework that's much easier to work with,
and will provide better balance overall, especially with the new speed and reach values.

How do I update, exactly? I'm using Wrye Mash and already read the part about updating savegames, but what about updating the mod itself? Do I first need to uninstall the mod (4.31) via Wrye Mash?

No you don't need to uninstall the entire mod, but you need to remove the old esps (after updating your save-game though).

Please fix the pickpocket and speechcraft nerfs. I started the game anew with high hopes. Can't get that damn code book for the fighter's guild and the key to Nerano Manor! Low-level quests shouldn't be such a challenge, should they?

Hey trancemaster_1988. I played rebirth up to level 9 and really like most of it. But just a question, if I simply stop using rebirth (just unchecking the .esp without removing files), can I continue playing the original morrowind then? or will I encounter inconsistencies in models and character-stats and gamemechanics?
Thank you!

(if others might wonder the same, mabye add the answer somewhere in a description)

No you can't. The changes in Rebirth are just too massive to simply remove it from the loadorder.

Sorry for the late reply btw.
