So we have been hearing a lot about how this won't just be a button masher and how ZeniMax has been focusing on making combat more immersive. I have been watching a few videos about the combat, and as I watched I realized that I had started making up tactics and moves I could use in game with a group.

For example we have heard about shield charging in our last Ask Us Anything: Combat 2. It's confirmed you can walk while blocking with your shield. But as we know constantly blocking burns stamina. So I was thinking about this: get a bunch of shield bearers and make two lines facing forward. The first line raises their shields and advances. When that line's stamina is used up the second line steps up and does the same thing, until the first line's stamina is recharged. S basically you have a crawling shield wall.

Anyways what I thought I'd do here is make a thread where people can post some tactics or ideas of their own. Any thoughts?

Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Meanwhile, up in the parapets of my keep, I rain down Frost AoE that makes your shields useless and drains your stamina.
