Guild Wars: Eye of the North - interview

Dwarven boxing will be the new minigame that Ascalon’s down-to-earth race brings to the table. After learning the ropes of fist fighting, you’ll receive your first pair of brass knuckles and access to a chain of quests that’ll have you pummeling people left and right.

The boxing combat system works a lot like regular combat for Warriors. Throw light punches like jabs and hooks, and you’ll build up your rage meter which will let you unleash more devastating blows like uppercuts and head butts. What’s funny is that if you lose your energy, you’ll need to mash the “STAND UP!” skill to get your character back on your feet ala Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!
