Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted News - Improved Combat Manager

Posted by James Snietka on May 04, 2004  | 3 comments in our forums

A new combat manager has recently been released to Horizons players. This combat manager allows players to enjoy much smoother combat. Here is a brief run-down of the update:

  • No more "combat lag".
  • Spells and abilities trigger instantly, interrupting any repeatable action.
  • Spells and other ranged abilities will continuously retry until the target is in range.
  • A new combat queue window has been created. This informs you which attack you are currently performing followed by the next attack in the queue.
  • The names of spells and abilities will now appear over a player or monster's body when triggered.
  • A bar will appear when casting a spell to inform players how much casting time is left prior the casting of a spell.
  • Combat damage has been further randomized, providing frequent average damage with the occasional extremely high or low damaging attack.
