it isn't a perfect game and if you don't like it I'm not saying you have to play it. After all, we play games to have fun. But WoW is passive and cool down based where as ESO has real time active combat mechanics. It's not a nuanced difference. Timing and skill matter which is why it has a competitive multiplayer scene and WoW does not. You can beat bosses naked with a level 1 dagger if you're good. There is actually a PvP game mode that removes your stat and armor bonuses so you can play on a purely skill based level.Great! I don't care about the nuance, which you obviously didn't get the first time, so I'll say it again: I don't care about the nuance.
Not my type of combat, because the WoW style is boring to me. Already tried it (because I'm a fan of the series), and don't care to go back.
I do remember what you're talking about with wow based combat, but they removed that with the "One Tamriel" update and they plan on upgrading the netcode in update 34 to make it more competitive.
I know this is going to sound rude and I apologize in advanced, but you are simply wrong about the combat system
