Infographic for Cycle and Combo Mode
With my meager paint skills i created this small info graphic. i hope it helps a bit to understand the difference between those two modes.

I'm actually using cycle mode for some selfbuffs but even following this scheme and, for example, activate subslot B the skill don't reset and back to subslot A but stay at B.. Maybe i have a bug dunno or i fail to understand the true difference.

If you have auto-cast on then combo mode is like cycle mode.  Without auto-cast the slot don't rotate reliably.

the difference between the two is how it resets to the first sub slot.

combo resets when you switch to some other multislot entirely, while cycle resets when you cast a spell.

Maybe is the reason, i don't use auto-cast.

Don't work but probably the cause is because i don't use autocast. Would be good if it work even without be forced to use autocast.

This has nothing to do with auto cast

Well, it wont work on me then, both cycle and combo do the same exact thing.

Some kind of tutorial to explain the now dizzying number of options is definitively needed.  If possible their should be some simplification of the options as well, it sounds like it might be possible to have fewer options IF the player was able to toggle them individually as radio buttons so things like 'combo mode' are simply the result of have two other things simultaneously on.

Fnight I see that your one of the most prolific posters on these options, do you have any ideas.

I agree about a video tutorial, lots of people don't have idea what these commands do in the first place, or at least they should do some live examples.

They need to settle on a standard setup all players start out with which is usable from dayone alot of people i talk to havent bound stuff to hotkeys and makes them very slow in combat, this is something that needs to be addressed so there isnt a 30 mins binding session everytime you want to play darkfall again, i know i simply quit after buying time and then having to reset the whole thing its just meh.
