I think I found out why the game seems to be boring in PVE more so than other MMOS.
I have played a lot of MMOS, back from UO, and forward. Warhammer seems to have this combat feel in PVE that leaved me anxious, in a hurry, or want it to speed up.
Here is the good side of combat and here is why I think it is also its own problem for me.
- Combat was slowed down for a reason. The pace of combat IS slower than on most other mmo where you can SPAM everything. Its good for PVP because..
- Fights seem to last longer, keep you in the batter longer, and it makes the battle seem more influential on your decisions. When you are playing against other players and other people using strategies against you .. a slower paced combat system is good to give you time to react and change the flow of battle with proper strategies.
- The bad thing this slower paced combat does is make PVE BORING as hell. Since PVE is very straight foward non intuitive and tank and spank.. this makes PVE SLOWWWW. When you are just tryign to kill a a few mobs.. and you still have to have that slow paced combat it makes it drag out that much longer.. when you have to kill 100 things or 50 thing its just terrible.
1.4 Sec cooldown in Warhammer vs other mmos got a general 1 sec cooldown.
Its a different between getting off 9 actions in 9 seconds or 6 actions every 9 seconds.
