Vin's Note: OMG GUYS... IT'S COMING!!! I'm excited but a little apprehensive about the changes... (edit: found a video of the new combat system that was on the Mabi FB page; placed at bottom)

I'm just going to comment about the combat system.
The TAB key doesn't really like me :< ... now, I don't know if this is because of the fact that I'm using a laptop, the fact that I can't get my head round this new playstyle (even though it does exist in other games - however it's kind of different as well - more on this later), or cos my hands "just won't work like that" haha~ maybe it's all three.

Maj was spot-on when he said that all they've done as far as the cooldowns go was put it front to back. There used to be a skill-loading time, now that's gone and they put it at the end, pretty much.
It is very unnoticeable, and I was playing in Rabbie and felt I actually died less, especially with insta-counter \o/
However, lag still applies, as does running out of stam/mp and not realising it (something that happens to me frequently).

And the difference between Mabi's tab-key targeting and other games is this: usually, when you hit tab in another game (errr... trying to think of one I've played recently; let's go with LucentHeart), it will select the closest enemy regardless of your cursor position.
In Mabi, it is reliant on the cursor position still, just like when you hit CTRL.
However for me it doesn't seem to work half the time. It will say I don't have anything targeted when I clearly do and the blue highlight is around it.
So thankfully they still kept the ctrl-targeting system (and no, holding down tab does not make it function like ctrl), so I'll stick with the tried-and-true for this part.
One small detail about the targeting system: moving your cursor anywhere near an enemy seems to highlight them. I usually just go ahead and hold down ctrl after that. Pressing tab seems to do nothing.

Combat actually feels a little faster having skills insta-load and having a fair variety to fill in the minor gaps in skill-spammage. I haven't tried it yet, but I wonder if wming thru Peaca is still feasible; however, the removal of invincibility frames may be a more deciding factor in wm's usage...

...Not that I wanna run that place again, mind you!

Oh, bard class, wherefore art thou...?
