Combat

Using a multidirectional combat system players can string together a number of attacks to create more powerful combos which do additional damage as well as attacking much quicker if done successfully. Starting with three directions as players level up to more directions are enabled creating longer combos with the even more devastating results.

Players can also engage in combat on horseback with restricted access to their combat attacks, but opening up new mount only attacks such as charges; a break from the normal three speeds, this attack can knock people over as you cannon past them.
