I have narrowed the idea of combat down to one specific system and that is real time live action. That means no targeting, just pure all out battle.

But would players rather have the direction of the player determined by the arrow keys.... Or the mouse?

If determined by the arrow keys, then you just be running in the same direction as you wish to attack in, thus your attack direction is bound by your movement direction. If mouse controlled, you may run in any direction and attack in any direction simtaneously.

Think of an FPS shooter versus a game with a combat style such as ROTMG.

I would love the arrows to think about it.

Firstly, I love that you decided not to have targeting. I think it's more challenging and fun without it.

As for mouse or arrow keys, I'd have to test both to say for sure, but I'd most likely prefer arrow keys, as I despise aiming with the mouse.

Yeah, I'd probably say test both and see how it works. Hard to say for me, at least.

I play a lot of ARPGs, so I prefer mouse.
It also makes ranged classes way more fun to play IMO!

What about melee skills using Hotkeys, AOEs could be placed with the mouse, and ranged could be aimed with mouse and shot with left click.

I vote for arrow keys in hope that I will be able to one day use my controller...haha.
Don't get me wrong I can still use it, but when setting the mouse to be controlled with a joystick it gets very sensitive and kinda hard to use.
