Rotate Camera As It Applies To Combat..A Must?

Recommended Posts

I would prefer 360 camera rotation the entire time as I have had so many issues trying to explore areas,; however, in relation to combat it is far too 'busy' atm, we definitely need the ability to rotate the camera around our party otherwise battle is far too cluttered.

I think you don't understand what isometric camera means. Anyways it's technically impossible to rotate the camera.

You can pan a 2D perspective camera  for isometric games np.

Go through the PoE updates and you will see why it can't happen. The 2d backgrounds are made with that angle specifically in mind, not to mention lighting and shadows.

Didn’t like the fact that I don’t get XP for combat. While this does put more emphasis on solving quests, the lack of rewards for killing creatures makes me want to avoid combat (the core activity of the game) as much as I can.

The least they could do is add a hotkey so that you can make the walls around your character transparent. Not to give your characters vision through walls you shouldn't be able to see through; to allow you to see what you should be able to see.

The number of times I've had my back line stomped by some NPC because I thought my tanks were blocking a doorway that I couldn't see properly because it's behind a wall . . .
