Overpowered, really? (in General)
Just walking by forums, it seems like
are simultaneously overpowered. Explain to me how this implies game unbalance.
I guess compared to things like FB and FFs and ToE, all of those things mentioned above are a significantly better choice.
It's not that things are overpowered at the moment, in my mind there is a decent amount of balance... Though certain other things ARE underpowered... see Fireball // FF.

Over powered or under powered are all relative meanings.
People just want to make things a bit more fair, sometimes just for them, sometimes for more people.
Shade you are correct, but when a certain item/skill/ability is so bad that not a single person will argue for it... that's when it's fairly safe to say that it's underpowered...

PL- in of itself not OP, however, when combined with the TSA and the ability to get both the PL and resurrection. And it highly neuters one of the key aspects that made FB a decent spell.
HF- We know where I stand vs others. I think this will never be resolved to everyone's satisfaction. IMO, OP, no.
ToA- I think the OP chat was years ago before the ToA received numerous nerfs. Now, it is a fine tattoo and well balanced. Where did someone say it was OP?
RBF- I would say it is a bit on the powerful side with its multiple benefits. I would advocate removing its evasion aspect at least. Keep it with MR and its "unique" damage.
GA- Certainly powerful, very much so, but not really OP. It is a great foil for all the "OP" archers out there. And the RBF certainly is the perfect foil for it.
I think other things instead are hopelessly underpowered, and hardly used.
Like FB/FF. Like the Mageseeker bow. And even the VB falls into this category.
I still think GS/Haste aren't strong as they should be. And still wonders why they are the only 2 spell with 2 EO counter.

PL hardly overpowered, it does its thing. TSA got numerousness nerfs. TSA resurrects not OP but not normal.
HaL, it gets too much free NW and PTH
ToA, IMO too much free PTH
RoBF, perfect damage, however too much foils and not enough free counter PTH (biased)
GA, was never OP until the damage was lowered, then it finally did its job properly, of course for some too properly...
