Hey Quinn! I can help a bit:

1. The release will have voice acting aka Baldur's Gate style. Not over the top, but enough for people who want or expect it.

2. Other classes can get environmental type weapons too, Ranger being the one who gets the most with all the arrow tips for fire/frost/etc. Some environmental effects aren't immediately obvious like blood for witches. Aside from oil/water/etc barrels and things you'll find peppered in encounters, strong melee types can carry them around and throw them into the mox - so while wizard gets the most raw o immediate ones, there's no lack of it through other options.

3. Default clerics are water (Hydro) spells, but you'll want to edit and experiment in the beginning with the skill choices so you can get familiar with the different choices. There's alot of mechanics and I agree there's a lot that could be explained better, Ive gotten by with trial error and the global chat.

4. Not sure. Was he -10 before hand? I haven't paid much attention to the attitudes in the past (unless I got someone mad to the point of attacking), so I can't help much here.
