The WAR resource system.

Posted in General with tags , , , , on September 5, 2008 by Ullric

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.
