Combat & Action Bar[edit | edit source]

Players can select one of three combat modes, in decreasing level of user involvement and damage done.

  • Full manual.png
    Full Manual mode requires each ability to be triggered manually, as in previous incarnations of the ability system. This gives the greatest control to players and gives the best damage output, but it also is the most click-intensive.
  • Revolution.png
    Revolution mode automatically triggers the first cooled-down basic ability in your first nine action bar slots which you have the requirements to use. Other basic, threshold and ultimate abilities can also be used without turning off Revolution. The revolution window can be resized, and basic, threshold and ultimate abilities can all be triggered. This offers a high damage output comparable to Full Manual mode, without requiring each ability to be clicked manually.
  • Legacy Mode is the old combat system before Evolution of Combat. This mode allows you to hit more consistently, but limits your abilities to only special attacks.
