but you do hit the same keys a lot more than on, say, a Warrior in Warcraft.
Not really >_>
Charge (once, if that really counts)
Heroic Strike X #
Overpower when it's up
Mortal Strike or Bloodthirst
Whirlwind, rage permitting
Cleave/Ravage (Depending on your spec)
Tooth of Tzentch when it's up (which will be more often then Overpower)
That DoT Strike they have
Aura Twisting every 5 seconds
Taunt every time it's up (it does increase your damage!)
This is comparing a level 60 (possibly 70) warrior to a level 7 chosen btw.
The Warrior does get more complicated in pvp, and my experience with Chosen is only up to level 13. However, since they get knockback, guards, challenge, morale, Quake, etc - I'm pretty sure it'll be equal or even favoring the chosen at level cap.
One of the main difference between WoW and WAR is that there's no such thing as a 'pve' move in WAR. Even pve ability have pvp use. You use everything all the time. That's also something that jumped at me in Bodh's post, when he said 'a simple rotation' - how is it simplier's then WoW's?
That's part of the reason why you sound lot like someone who's stuck in 'the mindset that WoW is better no matter what' - because most of your 'issues' with the game aren't issues at all once you look at them.
Well, let me correct that - I do believe you have issues with the game, you're just not explaining them very well.
I don't want to hit the same button 20+ times in a fight. Okay, that was a bit unrealistic. I don't want to hit the same button 10+ times in a fight.
I dunno, most melee class in most mmorpg will require you to spam a main 'core' ability with other ability build around it. This is nothing new and nothing limited to WAR.
If you want to do more damage (and thus, press less button) - you probably shouldn't be playing a tank. My Marauder slaughter stuff in a handful of button press.
It does seem the issue is that you want your chosen to be a Warrior from WoW... it's not going to happen sadly. Mythic is smart enough not to put the best armor, the most mobility and the best burst on the same class >_>
The Flee ability is really getting on my nerves, especially when you're fighting someone who can kill you from afar. Like a Shadow Warrior or whatever they're called. The bastard just runs off and by the time I get to him, he's planted ten arrows in my face.
If you flee as soon as they do, they shouldn't get much if any ground on you ;p Edited, Oct 6th 2008 12:53pm by Tyrandor
