Ground combat's fatal flaw was to have any relation to wow. The click click fest, the enemies that are all mentally retarded bullet rag AIs. The locking you into one target at a time... It's god-awful game play that gets copied in so many mmos because "that's how it's done in wow so it must be the best choice".

To fix this game you'd need more enemies, less health, smarter ai, and free targeting. Either in first person or third. The mouse would have to be linked to the viewing/aiming and the movement changed to traditional WASD controls (with strafing). The only issue with this is how to retain the usage of the hotbar abilities. Buttons 1-0 could obviously work for activating stuff but you'd need to assign another cluster of buttons to finish it off.
