i never could find much liking in the ESO combat system..
until.... i did some research...
there is definately some skill in the combat..
weaving light and heavy attacks into your rotation
knowing how and when to cancel annimations
switching skillbars on the fly
knowing how and when to counterattack
offcourse the dodging..
i used to just stand there and use my skillbars skills just like on wow or other Mmo’s
and yes thats kinda slow and boring
but now i have found the true depth in the system, and i love it, i really do..
actually the combat has grown so much on me over the past 2 months that it is currently on top of my list for all MMO’s
strange isn’t it, how with a few small online lessons, the feeling totally changed..
it actually feels like real combat now to me.. lots of reactional things to do..
and i think skill really sets the good players apart..
