    PVP server is quite hardcore I got ganked at level 5.

    PVP uses normal ability type stuff but an interesting block system that has counters that is very reminiscent of fighting game style mindgames so it will never be formulaic PVP like wow descended into.

    only level 7 will let you know more later, but it's fun right now.

    ( Roll a hero, as villain is more populated obv ).

    Not sure this will sway anyone, but I've killed > 20 people in world pvp, I got ganked at lvl 5 and was like wtf?

    All the cities on the PVP server are OPEN so you can get ganked almost anywhere, or gank almost anywhere.

    Btw the travel mechanics - at level 9 acrobatics gets a rocket assisted glide ( flight ) so I'm not sure what the advantage of flight is :p

    Graphics look very similar to the Batman: Arkham Asylum which had a really nice dark feel to it.

    Again though, still don't know if this is a game for me, I hate CoH/CoV.

    So some comments on the combat, you get an ability bar as you can see, which is controlled by how much power you have ( read rogue energy from wow :p ) - the blue bar top left under my health bar.

    In addition the melee combat is mouse click operated.

    Left click = your melee swing, right click = your ranged swing.

    In addition you can get both new ability abilities and new melee abilities.

    So to explain how the fuck thats different.

    I spam left click = lots of combo hits on mobs, if I purchase an ability it will require me to hold down left click, so spam a few left clicks > hold left click = combo of normals and then my move comes out.

    similarly w/ ranged combat my right click held down = shuriken blast ( on my chr ), if I then hold it down again once I've bought the second ability, it will then fire the 2nd, and once i get the third, the third.

    BAR abilities are NOT done on this click style, they are started using 1/2/3/4/5 etc like a normal MMO ability bar.

    Do the left and right mouse buttons sort of act like the left and right knuckle buttons on a console control so that if you hold them down then press say 1 or 2 it does a different ability to say pressing 1 or 2 ? (ie. like using ALT and SHIFT to change action bar)

    Or is it like holding down the left mouse button is a whole unique set of abilities on its own that don't have anything to do with 1,2,3 etc. etc. ?

    They are functionally completely seperate.

    Bar abilities have nothing to do and don't sync with your mouse clicks.

    Eg, mouse 1 = melee attacks, if I hold mouse 1 down I will do an axe kick - which will interupt spell casts.

    mouse 2 fires my ranged attack, if i hold it I get level 1 shuriken, if i then hold it again I get level 2 shuriken, and when i get it, again for level 3 ( they do different things ).

    if i just spam right click = spam ranged, and same w/ left click spamming melee.
