WildStar News - Combat Telegraphs & Sci-Fi MMOs

Posted by Suzie Ford on Nov 16, 2012  | 16 comments in our forums

In our latest WildStar column, we take a look at the recently released combat video and last week's WildStar Uplink question. We offer a few thoughts about both and hope that you'll join in the conversation in the comments.

In a recent video released by Carbine Studios, Jeremy Gaffney showed off the WildStar combat system with specific reference to ‘telegraphing’. Telegraphing, for those who might not know, is a graphic representation of the way a monster or a player will attack and/or how the environment will be altered after an attack. In essence, the monster or player reveals the direction and style of attack through a red overlay shown on the ground. By revealing the path of attack, players have the ability to determine how to move to avoid it or how to counter what’s being thrown at them.  Interestingly, the video shows a single player going up against a single monster so the telegraph patterns are pretty simple and easy to see.
