Your opinions for combat: part 4


A recent preview of Driftmoon got me again thinking about the combat system in Driftmoon. I thought I'd ask you, how would you improve the combat?

Some of you may remember I decided to change the way combat works right after the preview version a couple of years ago. In the preview, the combat worked like in Diablo. One click on an enemy gets you one strike.

And the current model is more strategic. One click starts a fight with an enemy, and you get to choose the kinds of attacks you want to use next.

So which one do you prefer? And if you prefer the current combat model, how would you improve it?

[Update] How about beefing up the combat with a magic system? Possibly the traditional spell book and mana kind?
