Action RPG Help

Hey Verge, just wanna ask a quick question.

Me and a friend are looking to get into developing video games. We have some decent ideas, but we want a variety of different styles of games. One style that neither me, nor him, really have much experience with is Action RPG's. Since the definition is a bit fuzzy, let me explain what I mean.

We have plenty of turn based and tactical rpg ideas. So a faster paced gameplay while still holding true to RPG elements is what we are looking for.

If you have a good example of an action rpg (specifically the combat system), whether it be new or old. Or, maybe you have some collective knowledge of what works and what doesn't work in your opinion. Any help is extremely appreciated.
