In WoW, it wasn't so - which is why I was a druid for most of the time.
Ooh, then you might like the combat system in AoC. In addition to the "movable anticipation shields" that I described, there is an active "defend" button that you can hold to pretty much parry or block most attacks, even better if you have a sheild, all at the cost of stamina while you are holding the button down so you can't do it indefinitely. Melee is definitely a lot more interesting so far. They seem to be coming out with more interesting stuff for casting too, like the ability to amplify your spells with concentration.
