I see al ot of players want choices not limitations, so why limit on combat?

Because it wouldn't work at all and totally kill the whole reason behind having limited hotbar space.  No one is going to limit their self and put them self at a disadvantage like that by only limiting their self while others are not limited, makes no sence even saying it i cant see how you hit enter with that post lol.

Wildstar will have cookie cutter builds, but they will be mostly for veteran dungeons and raids. In those situations the class will be filling a specific role against a specific difficult encounter design, and there will be a "most effective" build to use for that role.

I'm not a fan of limited active skills/sets. I get bored.  I don't mind skill sets as long as I can move between while in combat. 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

Thats a whole different topic alltogether  but there is no reason at al lever you should be able to switch  skill sets mid fight.

I don't particularly care about "how many" skills we get or whatever, what I am worried about is the removal of different class flavors and feels due to limited skillset. Skills like underwater breathing, track X, ritual of summoning, Healthstone/Soulstone, Spirit Wolf. None of those abilities really fit the action bar scheme and shouldn't be on one in the first place, but limited action bar games frequently remove them outright.

Favorite MMO: Vanilla WoW
Currently playing: GW2, EVE
Excited for: Wildstar, maybe?

This has been asked a few months back, and non-combat abilities will be able to be placed on hotbar addons ( bartender ), so things like your healthstone, potion, mount, etc should work.

I cannot fiddle but I can make a great state of a small city.

It's never about how many skills/spells there are for me but how they're implemented.

30-40 skills where 80% of them are situational and rarely used or provide silly 5 second buffs are not fun to manage.

8-10 skills where you're really only using one or two because the rest are again situational are also not fun.

Give me 10-15 great abilities that I'm always going to use and i'll be happy.

TOR failed as a sub game, that must be because it had multiple hotbars.

I think Robokapp's point is valid.

If Neverwinter had more abilities to play with, it could have had more players.

TOR wouldn't be better or more popular if it had 5 skills.

It's just guessing, but TOR surely didn't fail becaue of the amount of abilities.

Cluttered screens are over rated. I'd much rather be able to see wtf I'm doing instead of looking at a bar full of spells.

Far too many variables in all of these games to pinpoint one feature as having more influence one way or the other.

For clarity....I hope you do realize I was being ironic above.

The amount of skills needed on the hotbar depends on the game. In some games, you have to be prepared for every possible situation, and each needs another skill. In other games most skills are suited to deal with almost all enemies, so a few are enough. And if they don't work, simply swap them out. Maybe even during battle, or you have to go back to town and try again, no big deal.

I actually think you are a bit limited in GW2, because skills are tied to the weapon, and half the skills aren't "real" skills, but utility like heal etc. But the 8 freely adjustable in the original GW were more than enough.

And of course there were cookie cutter builds. But not one, several, so not everyone would use the same. And a lot of those builds came into existence because someone thought "everyone is using skills a, b and c, but x, y and z look nice, too. I wonder if i can make a build out of those..". Or because of PVP, finding the right build to deal with your enemy who of course would use some kind of cookie cutter build.

If it's done right, limiting the amount of skills you can bring indeed diversifies gameplay over everyone simply using everything.

I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

I wouldn't mind 8-10 skill as long as I don't have to spam 1111111111, while other skills are on 10-15-20-40-60 seconds cooldown. That's hurting my brain...

Im old too. Razer naga.  2 fingers, 1 thumb right hand. shift/ctrl/tab wasd spcae left hand. 60+ hotkeys w/o breaking a sweat.

Amount of skills depends on the game. D3, GW2 n mobas are fun for days upon days with just a few.  Other games like WoW etc. can be equally fun with a dozens of hotbar skills.

I like games.

12/18/13 6:19:21 PM#98
I disagree. A system that allows you to pick and choose from a limited set, such as 10, can be just as fun as a system with Wow-esk amounts of hotkeys. This system is present in guild wars 2, and personally changing around my build and figureing out new combinations is one of my favorite things to do in that game. So perhaps you are not taking into consideration that other peoples opinions of this may differ from yours. I'll be subbing to Wildstar as long as it's fun, and I don't think the limited action set will take away from that at all.

Going to have to disagree with the OP. I think as long as they have enough side stuff to do "fluff and combat is fun, exploring is fun, building homes is fun etc etc the game will do fine.

 

I cant wait honestly, I am tired of the hotbar challenge. Not what I would consider fun side stuff lol.

The reason MMO's have a lot of abilities is because they have no aiming and they have to challenge the player in some way so that is how they do it. I'm not advocating MMO's introduce aiming as it just doesn't work with most people having +250ms latency and modifying the game (larger hit boxes, slower targets etc) defeats the whole point of skill in aiming.

 

Having said that, the shrinkage in MMO abilities is about new markets to capture $$$$ - its as simple as that. Console players don't have the hardware (nor most likely the trained muscle memory) for that many abilities.
