Accumulating everything I’ve seen from each of the PVP leaks, I can discern what the best playstyle could be for each of the fighting styles.
This is all my opinion. I could be incorrect.
We don’t have a lot of strength combat, used, but watching the recent DoctheWarbird video, I think I can figure it out. Strength is probably in the middle in terms of speed. You could probably win by applying as much pressure as you can on the enemy, and not letting them think. However, weapons can do this much more effectively. Strength could probably succeed by playing a defensive style, as well.
We haven’t seen much Magic PVP. But what I can say is that Magic PVP would be identical/similar to current WoM PVP. You should play defensive against a weapon user, since they can pack in a 400 damage combo if your too reckless. Try to enemies AFTER they use an attack. If your fighting another magic user, this still applies. And finally, when fighting a strength, user, you should try to predict them. This can apply to weapon users too.
For conjurors using magic as a side, apply as much pressure as you can, with your weapons. You can choose defensive or offensive, but I feel a magic based conjuror would work best with an offensive playstyle.
After watching DoctheWarbirds video, I realized Infernoferno’s mistake(or at least its a mistake in my opinion).
The reason why Inferno won against Selector was because Selector kind of sucked at the game, but also because Inferno applied pressure. He used Weapons greatest “weapon”, and thats speed. Inferno’s build is great for applying pressure, and he seemed to be playing passive when he was fighting DoctheWarbird.
I think Inferno would have won if he was more aggressive.
I’ve never even played AO and I’m making these speculations, so I’m okay if people start insulting me in the comments lol ;-;
