Just rolled a Sylvan under the new rules today, and it's a bit confusing.
First of all, in the very beginning, I am taught 15 lessons in Propagation, and told to use Thornrend as my main attack, but there is no mention of assuming viridian first. I am also told to use firelash, which doesn't exist now, so that little segment needs to be removed from the script. I mentioned this to Julia and she said she would pass it on to staff. Help files haven't caught up yet either.
Secondly, this is the first class I've had that needed willpower. Going after the wildcats, I used half of my willpower in a single tour of the wildcat lair. I assume it will get better, but having to meditate for 10 minutes to re-gain my willpower is going to be boring. Without becoming Viridian, I don't see any other options for attacking. Will future skills make things any easier or is Sylvan more of a support class than anything else?
