There is no mounted combat in Oblivion. There IS one smart-mouthed Ka'jeet that talks about it but all you can do is ride from spot to spot. You must dismount to fight. Two worlds has pretty good mounted combat, but it's hard to master.Sem said:I don't know why so many people want this in games?In the very few games I played that had mounted combat (Sacred, Oblivion, etc.), I rarely used it because I found it too tedious or even annoying. I'd better just have a very solid fighting system on foot.
I wouldn't mind a horse I suppose but then there isn't huge distances to cover in TW so couldn't see one being overly useful unless it killed drowners. Shadowmere would own drowners.Anyway the EE is nearly out and I don't think horses are coming with it and I don't think they will delay it to add them. ;DWOLF13 said:I was thinking about mounted combat in the witcher, wouldn't that be cool!? i would certainly love it! the powerfull witcher on a strong warhorse!i like to now what you think about that?
Horse "Плотва(Plotva)" will be more than enough. But it useless without long outdoor traveling between the city.I remember only two games with good mounted combat, it's "Mount & Blade" and "Assasin's Creed".PS: I read only Russian version Witcher's book, and don't know horse name in originalgamewidow said:riding a wyvern or a basilisk would be cool
Instead the three combat styles we have foe each sword, it could be that we would have a fourth: the mounded opponents fight. Or use a dagger, try to throw them off the horse...Great idea, ST_Ghost!it would be quite interesting to see him fight mounted opponents.
That's the exact same question Dandelion asked him once ... without luck As for mounted combat ... witchers are swordsmen, they rely on precise timing, coordination, reflexes and mobility to avoid injuries. You can't dodge an attack when you're butt is nailed to the horse : , that's why knights wear armor. The first mounted encounter with a strong monster would be the last. Also, monsters that witchers are after rarely if ever dwell in areas suitable for mounted combat, riding horse in swamps, crypts or graveyards could be a "little" tricky.Anyone who have read the witcher series would tear your heart out if you'd turn Geralt into some crude knight :wave: . That would simply kill all immersion.PetraSilie said:btw does anyone know why Geralt calls his horses Roach? Its a fish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roach_(fish) ;D
*laugh* Excellent point, and well made, too!xalien said:As for mounted combat ... witchers are swordsmen, they rely on precise timing, coordination, reflexes and mobility to avoid injuries. You can't dodge an attack when your butt is nailed to the horse :
Perhaps you should take those 8 inch nails out of your saddle... :And actually, yes you can, just not in full chain or plate... History shows lightly armoured cav was pretty efficient, including dodging, the trouble is when the opposition forces your horse to be stationary, thats when the nailing began...Oh and Roach, is also (here anyway) the short name for coc(k)roach... Dunno why he'd call his horse coc(k)roach, except maybe for the same reason I named one of my cats 'flea'(edit: damn text sensor...)xalien said:You can't dodge an attack when you're butt is nailed to the horse :
