With a single character doing as much as 10 attacks per round, the combat log becomes very tedious to read and pick out useful information. For example, a single attack dumps this huge amount of text:
"Zaps lands a critical strike! Zaps hits Dwarf Heretic for 112HP! Dwarf Heretic is scorched for 112HP! Dwarf Heretic is chilled for 112HP! Dwarf Heretic is zapped for 112HP! Dwarf Heretic gains 108 poison (171 total). Dwarf Heretic is about to die!"
It would be nice if the combat log could be simplified. For example, the above attack message could be abbreviated:
"Zaps lands a critical strike on Dwarf Heretic: Hit for 112! Scorched for 112! Chilled for 112! Zapped for 112HP! 108 poison gained! (171 total). Dwarf Heretic is about to die!"
There could be a game client setting to toggle generation of verbose or condensed combat text. That could allow for an even more condensed combat text which is well formatted for the window width.
