I believe that there are two distinctions to be made here, the thread in general and my list at the initial post in specific. My list in the initial post is mainly comprised of things that EHG have said will be in the game.
As for the thread in general though, I mentioned in the intro it being “Informal” and the thread title is “List of Player Expectations for game release”. Which I think would be fair to encompass things that players might reasonably expect to see in the game at release, whether by being needed for a “Released Game”, something particularly important to the identity of “Last Epoch”, or something derived from what an EHG representative has said. I believe that smashing untenable expectations is an important part of this process.
The only things that have been specifically mentioned to be in before release are skill trees for all skills, Rogue, Bazaar and coop multiplayer. Hence the thread. The only game feature that has been indicated that it might come after release is cycles. As most everything else has been marketed as part of the game, I think it would be reasonable for players to “expect” the other game features to be included in the game release, until otherwise noted.
To be clear: I don’t think that this thread is a replacement for an official dev road map/goals/timeline/feature list, but I do think that it could inform one.
Long ago, in discord I think. I may be misremembering or misinterpreting what was said at the time though.
