Some reviewers make Xul sound scary complex, but looking at the spellset and the gameplay videos, he seems to be at about Asura level of skill, perhaps easier, because most spells are white, and overall power level is higher. Like Asura, Xul also has a freeze spell for crowd control, and a rotating cloak spell, used both for protection and just for pacing the attack. It seems to me that once you get “in the zone” cycling through those spells, you can steadily go through bases about one tier up with matching gear. It is not like you have to decide on a custom spell combo five times a second.
So my main question is, if I was able to pilot Asura effectively in a similar cycle, is it safe to assume I can handle Xul, as well?
