GW2 nah... more like DCUO +.

now if Wildstar just didnt have those moronic and distracting telegraphs... then the combat would be really interesting.

combat to me just looks kinda of.......like............i guess what im trying to say is it looks like a WWE match. Its kinda slow....pauses here and there....acted out. 

The combat in the video just did not look fluid....anyone else have the same feeling?

Spider Monkey Ninjas are in the game!

A Spider Monkey Ninja buff.

Ninjas are mammals and so are Spider Monkeys.

So... you could flip out and....

This game seems to be taking a long time to finish up. I can't believe they haven't announced a beta yet. If this comes out near the same time EQ Next comes out, I don't think this game will stand a chance. I do like the combat they just announced though. What keeps me attached to a game is fluid movement, fast reaction time, responsiveness, and having plenty of abilities to throw down range.

This game seems to have all the combat likes, I just hope they speed it up because I won't pay monthly for this without giving EQ Next my money first.

@Reehay - While telegraphs will be toggle-able, I suspect most people will leave them on as they allow for the devs to do some crazy sort of attacks that would be hard to parse/labelled as "undodgeable" by players without them.

@drtack1 - I'm fairly sure it's because these videos are acted out. When playing at conventions, etc. it's all felt fairly smooth without the pauses you're seeing.

@raskull789 - Erm, closed beta started April 10, 2013 (http://www.wildstar-online.com/en/news/a_picture_is_worth_a_thousand_words_they_say.php) but is currently on hiatus.
