Hey Gods Of Pvp - What Pov Do You Use Ingame?

Recommended Posts

So I'm flailing around in the Moors in LOTRO (Orrrrrrrrrrrrc!) and made an evil Sith in SWTOR (Wanna duel?  Wanna Duel? *duel request *duel request omg I'm that annoying person always spamming duel requests...) to start at least being able to not trip over my own feet in PvP.

One thing that has shown up is the PoV of my ingame camera while PvP'ing. I'm used to using an over my shoulder view from above - pulled out enough to take in the mob I'm solo fighting or the full team if I'm grouped.  Bear in mind I'm usually playing a healer so that PoV is what has always worked best for me.

I'm finding it does not work as well in PvP.  I'm missing clues in animations that show what skill is coming next but when I zoom in more and go  "face to face" in my PoV I don't feel like I have enough awareness of my environment and wind up against walls/fall off edges.

What PoV are you using for solo PvP?

You want to give enough of a view to be able to look around, but the closer your camera is moved in, the sooner you can turn your character.

 

It really all boils down to personal preference though!

 

I prefer mine at this range https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYnr0laVAp0.

 

For awareness you really need to use ingame sound, and the minimap. It isn't all in the eye.

I can't even.  You win, I am done with this part of the discussion.

IMHO. no two people are same so it boils down to find what works the best for you. In 11 years of gaming I have yet to find the holy grail of camera angle and zoom that is the best for everyone.

I totally forgot about that crazy woman (or guy pretending to be a girl? I forget). Jesus Christ.

Yeah, my mind still goes into a weird crevasse whenever I think of that strange person.

Just because the avg Christian doesn't behead ppl...Its still lame to insult Jesus and their beliefs.

Know me and fear me. My embrace is for all and is patient but sure. The dead can always find you. My hand is everywhere - there is no door I cannot pass, nor guardian who can withstand me.

my personal preference is for ranged dps and heals as far out as possible depending on the terrain, for mele dps and tanks medium range.

How is saying "Jesus Christ" as an exclamation insulting to Jesus or Christians?
