Minor balance update

For those that can't see:

There is NO WIPE with this update. This is a set of minor adjustments, while we clean up the build for a major patch for next week. Note: This not include Lockstep yet, although I am hoping we can get something up next week.

This is not a comprehensive list of changes, just some highlights.
