Weapons and stances change very fast and you can mix combat easily. Providing you think and react fast enough.

As for melee combat, it is fine really. I notice people are going insane on the main forums about it. It is the most complex and involved of any major MMORPG, so it is good enough in my opinion. If you have been following Darkfall forever I am sure you will like it just fine. Ranged combat is just much harder to deal with on offense and actually hit someone, so I think it takes more skill initially. When you are close in it is much easier to hit people. The melee speed is closest to Oblivion, again, so it is not as fast close in as most FPS. It still gives plenty of challenge, and is by far not my biggest concern with Darkfall. My biggest concern would be them finishing the game, and the game simply being way too hard for the vast majority of players who are not hardcore Darkfall fans. Still, I think this also is what makes Darkfall special and unique. Time will tell how it plays out.

looks like armor and weapon stats got a bit of influence from SWG also :)

Ironically, among all crafting skills that's listed, only "Cooking" is really a crafting skill. The rest are more related to gathering skills, and some are not even related to gathering either (like smelting, and repairing).

Of course the list is incomplete, it's missing more important craftsmanship skills such as blacksmithing, leatherworking, tailoring, alchemy, carpentry, tinkering, etc.
