The Daily Grind: What’s your stance on weapon swapping in MMO combat?


You know what’s always mystified me? Any game that involves a whole lot of weapon swapping for optimal combat rotations. Apparently it’s a big part of Elder Scrolls Online’s design, yet I care not one whit for it. I’ve got my weapon and I’m going to stick with it instead of juggling a sword and a bow like an indecisive fool. It always seems to be more fiddly than I’m willing to accept, so I just don’t.

But maybe you have a different opinion? I’m open to hearing it! What’s your stance on weapon swapping in MMO combat? Do you like the options? Is there a game that works well with this format? Or does it make you rage-throw your desk across the room while you go play some Settlers of Catan to calm down?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
