Hello,long time no see!Returned,though been watching forums all along,now that next title up for discussion. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />
At this stage I just want to agree with Raze and others of the same mind on the subject of combat.
IMHO combat skills should come from the careful building and nurturing of your character as it should be he/she who knows how to fight as opposed to the keyboard skills/speed of reaction of the player.
There are many hack and slash games on the market where players can use their own physical skills in the game's combat,but I am of the opinion that fans of <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> are looking forward to what might be seen as a "Real" RPG with the accent on the "R"!
Also,as the sort of game I'm hoping Larian is producing,is likely to appeal to many players of all ages.Some of them may not have the co-ordination and/or speed of reflexes required by combat ruled by keyboard/mouse skills.So there should be a way for them to be effctive in combat without lighning reflexes.
