Combat Guide

Combat Guide -

The folks at the Chronicles of Spellborn have posted a guide to the game's unique combat system, giving tips and tricks on how to survive your first battles.

Manual Dodging
Keeping your health level high enough to stay in combat longer
Spellborn features fast-paced, action rich combat. The need to aim to hit a target is generally well understood. The fact you have to dodge is not. Most new players will stand their ground, exchanging blows with an opponent and whilst the opponent goes down, so does the players health. These players generally fight a single mob, retreat from combat and then sit down to regenerate their health. Although it certainly works, it is not what we had in mind with fast paced combat.

Spellborn offers a more fun solution: manual dodging! You can evade attacks of enemies if you maneuver your character out of the way fast enough.

To try it out, find low level boars. Generally they can be found near the City of Hawksmouth's Spawn Shrine and the Lumber Yard. A boar has a rather predictable attack pattern:

· It will notice you
· It will run towards you
· When close enough, it will stop moving
· Within about a second it will execute its attack
· If needed, it will start running again to catch up with you
· It will stop moving again to attack

The start of the attack is recognizable from the sound and the animation. To notice this easily, let a boar come close (use ranged attacks to “lure” it) and at a certain distance it stops moving. If you learn and anticipate this distance and move away from the boar (strafing works best), you can evade the attack. It requires some timing, and lots of practice but you can evade an attack this way.
