I only have a couple of months of playtime in now, I moved to EQ2 with a friend after the demise of my beloved City of Heroes. I really do like the game a lot but I feel like my combat technique is sorely deficient for what I should be capable of. Anyway, I need some details on the auto-attack timer and the heroic opportunity. I've been told 'make sure your auto-attack goes off' but they wouldn't go into detail and told me to 'figure it out'. I guess I should expect this from 1-9 but it's a shock after the in-game chat I'd gotten used to over the years um... elsewhere. How do I go about making sure that it does go off? Is there some specific point in the auto-attack meter that I should wait for? I do have it up and I watch it a lot, but right now I honestly have no idea why. Also, could someone offer some details on the heroic opportunity? Should this be a constant thing or only for particularly tough fights? Is it necessary/does it help? Thanks a million for any and all help everybody!
