Tactical CombatFollow

#1 Dec 07 2010 at 8:15 PM Rating: Good
Anyone else enjoying more tactical combat? Not that we're talking extreme strategy required, but it's nice that once in a while I get in a fight with a group of mobs in a leve, where I have to utilize every ability I have to survive and get the sp without dying. Combat itself is so much more fun now.

I've yet to experience a leve in a group setting that was over one star. A cost/benefit kind of thing I guess. So it was just a lot of 1 mashing for me. Though I am thrilled about the new SP system because I can use weapon skills without pick-up parties threatening to kick me now for "stealing all the SP."

I find combat more enjoyable not because of leves or the way party play has changed, but because my UI doesn't suffer from extreme lag. It was too hard before where I would queue actions on accident because they didn't execute the first time I told them to, or my "recast" timers would show the ability ready to use but I would get the "Unable to use at this time" error.

I'll agree with you there, that there are now situations which require some thinking...

About two nights ago, I attempted a R40 with a thaumaturge buddy at Broken Water, and SE had kindly put a heap of Diremites in the vicinity. While handling the Devilets that were part of the levy, I was constantly flicking and rotating the camera just to make sure the diremites didn't wander into range...

We also experimented with Battle Regimens, and noted that patch now has a message telling you whether it succeeded, or which attack didn't chain, resulting in failure.

Then last night, I was in a roaming leve party, and everything was far more organized than before - people started using target indicators, party chat was buzzing, and generally we just had a good time :-)

this game needs more tactical combat imo. Needs something hard like divine might in ffxi where not everybody can kill in first try.
