NCsoft Talks the Basics of Blade & Soul’s Combat
If you have been following Blade & Soul you may know pretty lot of the game’s combat system. If you are not very familiar with the game, you can learn how the game’s target system and combo trigger machanism work in the game.
Blade & Soul will release in EU and NA in Q1 2016. Beta is expected to start later this year.
The combat in Blade & Soul is dependent on your actions and reaction, and many of your martial abilities are triggered upon certain events. Your action bar at the bottom of the screen shows the skills you have available in general situations; however, these skill bars will shift to display abilities that are available to take advantage of a given situation.
For example, if you’re knocked down as a Destroyer, your skill options will change to a give you a number of different abilities that allow you to jump back up into the battle. But be quick, or you could lose your chance to respond.
