As i already mentioned i love fight scenes. My fights sense use flashy magic as well as various combat style such as swordplay, archery, firearms, axes, etc. Magic is a big part of my world so even everyone uses. The most basic skill is the mana exoskeleton which increases one’s physical attributes depending on ones skill with mana and physical training.
A high tier officer knight would need a suite with a mana core to give them the enhanced attributes since their lifeforce is just higher than a non-combatant and their mana output is low. They are just foot soldiers.
A high tier master knight can use the mana exoskeleton for over an hour depending on the variables. They punch with more force than a rocket, move nearly light speed, and are durable enough to tank multiple explosions from bombs. A high tier master knight can learn two crafts, one that thier family has an affinity for and another they pick up through training and studies. Crafts are things like elements, transformations, summonings, etc.
My book starts off with a fight scene just because its more interesting to show my magic system. The first fight scene that has the most weight is when one of my MCs faces off against one of my big bads. The MC is greatly outmatched and gets his throat slit.
I have battles where characters lose arms but that’s about it in book one. The technology allows one to regrow lost limbs in a day but it won’t be fully functional for another.
