Introducing the Stamina Bar + Dash Mechanic
Introducing... the SP bar! Since the PvP bug fixes update, the dash to target was removed for the sake of preventing movement desyncronization. After hearing player feedback to bring this back, we made it into a real in-game mechanic that won't cause movement desyncs!
We added a green bar under the mana bar called the SP (Stamina Points) bar. With a default keybind of SPACE (changeable in keybinds), you can dash to where you click. Be careful as dashing costs 100 SP. Treat the SP bar as a second mana bar. (/rest replenishes it faster!)
Before now, the game had it where if you double-clicked a target, you would go to that target with increased move speed. This mechanic lets you click on one spot with that same increased move speed. It can be used inside or outside PVP.
