The WAR resource system.

Warhammer’s resource system is by far one of the biggest changes that I will experience coming from WOW. Mana in that game, and to a larger extent in most games is a non-renewable resource as far as combat is concerned. Action points on the other hand are like the hydrogen fuel cell of MMOs.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say many people will be shocked at how fun combat can be when you are not worried about running out of something. Combat in Warhammer just makes me feel powerful no matter what class I am playing.

As far as pvp is concerned, this could lead to very entertaining protracted keep sieges because none of the healers are going to be running out of a finite resource. It’s going to take skill and forethought to dislodge a realm from a keep, and I for one am looking forward to tackling this.

Anyone feel different? I would love your comments.

  1. Wow, just stumbled upon your blog and I like it a lot, especially the Sun Tzu article. I would suggest contacting Syp and Snafzg about linking your site on theirs – they are normally happy to do this.

    As far as Action Points, I could not agree more. In fact, it’s so flowing that I didn’t even realize how obnoxious waiting for mana was until I took a break from beta testing to help a friend level his Shaman on WoW. I couldn’t stand the mana breaks! Also, since everyone has AP, it allows for classes to directly buff and debuff opponent’s ability to fight.

    Keep up the good work and feel free to contact me by email or my guild’s website if you need Syp’s or Snaf’s blog site or just to chat about RvR.

  2. I appreciate the comments. Ya Syp put me in Da Bloody Twenty, so i got a good boost from that. I’ll have to get in touch with Snafzg.
