Praenomen Combat

MordionMordion Member Posts: 2
Hello,

I'm new to combat and I'm looking for some pointers on basic combat. I'm not a coder or anything so with that in mind, I'd like some advice. For those of you who don't code but do combat how do you typically handle your offense? Should I be creating in game aliases for my attacks or client side, or is it fairly easy to make combat scripts?

    Hi Mordion! Combat scripts for group fighting are generally simpler than people assume - a big string of if/then statements can do the trick! Your best bet is going to be connecting with people via your tether's combat clan (ours is called Research, since you're Praenomen), and generally there'll be somebody who'd be willing to help. I know I'm usually up for talking combat a bit. Also, there's currently some effort going into providing some basic code for group fighting, so getting involved in PK should become much less daunting soon-ish.

    @Vyxsis has hit the nail on the head.

    As someone who had no coding experience before I started playing Aetolia, I can assure you that there are some players who are super helpful, and happy to help you learn the basics you'd need to cobble together something that will pass in group combat. Not that I'm an expert, but compared to where I was, I might as well be on a different planet, so to speak. (And I <3 you all. You know who you are!)

    After that it's a matter of just trial and error a little bit. It's surprisingly fun/frustrating/elating/depressing to fiddle with!

    def echoing @Kelliara - i started playing january of last year, and i had no prior coding (or even MUD) experience whatsoever. whether i should be considered a pk success case is something i'll leave others to decide, but i can tell you with complete certainty that i've written numerous scripts that run as intended! it's completely doable even without experience!
