Well I think it was mostly the corridor between gran soren and the cassardis that I find terrible, and it's not so much the back tracking but the fact they are the same enemies that you outlevel at some point. Having shortcuts and a more open map with more random enemy placements would probably help. I run through the same areas a lot in dark souls too but I still found it enjoyable since they were still a bit challenging and quick to get around places.
Don't really need a mount imo, they would likely halfass it and it would probably add nothing, would prefer to fight my way through as long as it's fun.

New skills and classes would be awesome!
And i hope this black Spell Island will be huge and have some variety in environments than the rest of the game.Can't wait to explore it!
I really hope there are some changes to the environments with black spell island, from the screenshots it seems likely to be similar to the vanilla map.
Also good to see the npcs are back.
