He was just attacking with simple sword smash. I guess players will need to decide, what skill/ability to use where and when, so action bar thingy will be empty most of the time and you will have to wait for it to refill.

it seemed like he attacked at will kinda like a button smasher ... not sure if he actioning each attack like i think i've previously heard... but it seemed as though he couldn't drain the action bar like there was almost no need for a wait inbetween actions...
