    Swimming Skill

    With a game that is so incredibly deep on skills, I’m a bit surprised that there’s not a swimming skill, unless it’s something that I haven’t discovered. In the parts of the world that I’ve been, there hasn’t been a ton of water but swimming seems somewhat broken to me. I basically get in the water, sink to the bottom, and “swim” to the other side before I drown.

    It would be nice to get a mechanic that would show an obvious improvement in swimming as you skill up. In fact, I like the idea of being a terrible swimmer initially but would like to see the skill improve. I know it’s a small thing in the big picture, especially considering what the game offers, but I think it would be a nice addition.

    I've considered the same thing. It's pretty ludicrous seeing an adventurer bobbing up and down to keep from drowning.

    Swimming is definitely a bit borked at the moment; most people just spam space bar and sprint across the water.

    If you aren't already doing it, you can hit the Page Up key on your keyboard to swim up. So, it's actually possible to swim without drowning by continually hitting Page Up to stay at the top of the water and moving forward at the same time, but it feels like a rather klutzy key combo to me. As Panties said, hitting space bar to jump out of the water is easier, but that's probably a non-intended feature.

    I sort of don't want a swimming skill just because I don't enjoy swimming that much and I'm afraid a swimming skill would lead to more water areas with more required swimming getting added.

    Well, if the swimming skill made swimming batter than now: Like I could tread water without keyboard interaction; that would make sense.

    Right now it's like we all can jump out of water like porpoises and sink like someone who can't swim.

    It's on the list. It's pretty far down that list, but we'll be revamping swimming eventually!
