I've noticed that the AI sometimes sits for an extended amount of time thinking about their turn. It feels like a bug as often times the AI decides to do nothing at all after making me sit and wait. I noticed this especially on boarding fights but also when fighting a drake. Otherwise I enjoy the pace. I think there are good tips shared in here to help time effeciency overall too.
Casting the cipher ability that blinds and flanks also causes all affected enemies to turn invisible and untargetable while on a boarding fight.
