Planning - 5

Terrain in an MMORPG includes vast open areas, areas with funneling features, areas of concealment both outside and in structures inside of towns and cities.

Players: The ability to know the line of sight (LOS) of the character and the enemy is an essential skill when participating in PVE and PVP. One should always consider the LOS towards the rear of their character, as this is the primary point of attack in a MMO because of limited camera angles (though some MMOs may include an auto-facing feature or a backwards-looking camera mechanic to help battle this). Many players work around this tactic by using a circular path.

While in a structure, there are normally only one or two lanes of LOS that a player can be attacked from in either PVE or PVP. These areas should be focused upon at all times for potential danger.
