Been a long time lurker but now is my time to post something. I want to know how people feel about combat in the game in general.
Personally, after playing close to 50h, I find its lacking something but I cant quite put it into words but Ill try my best:
I find its lacking… impact? Or abilities seem to be missing some kind of ‘‘weight’’ to them. Enemies don’t respond to hits. It feels like you are hitting pieces of cardboard. And its doesn’t feel like I’m hurting things when I use my spells and abilities. They need more, man, its hard to explain but more feedback when you use them? I want to feel the weight of my hits, I want to feel the power of the magic I’m using.
Diablo 3 does this extremely well. Path of Exile also but to a lesser extent, hell, even Grim Dawn with the ragdoll physic feels good.
Are there any plans in the future from the devs to look into that? Its really one of the biggest flaws the game has for me. Everything else feels great but combat is just… bland. And in a game where you spend 99% of your time killing and slashing monsters it would be nice to feel good while doing it.
I don’t know… Maybe its just me but I feel like it would add a TON to the game.
The other thing I don’t like is items only having the possibility of 4 affixes but that’s a whole other story and I think the game is too far in development for this to change.
