In a recent interview that we did with Dr.Greenspoon, the frontman developer of Valar had this to say when asked about the current combat system.
“This said, one of my priority is to get the combat right, and tab target is not enough for me so I am currently adding more and more mechanics allowing for more open abilities for both players, NPC, mobs, and bosses such as AOE, ground targeted abilities, Linear projectile, Cones and more.”
Well, only a week has passed since that interview, and it looks like Dr.Greenspoon was a man of his word. Today he has just announced an update on the current combat system. These include adding in “Kill events”, “On hit effects”, and even overhauling skills to effect % instead of a fixed amount.
