Wow, what was taking so long?
My experience has been that combat is faster across the board in 2e, and that's with several brand new players...
I can imagine a lot of rules referencing. I've found combat to be faster, and easier to understand, except...
We all have experience with P1E, and that has occasionally caused confusion. Our cleric might suddenly wonder if he can't hold on to his touch spell, and discharge it when he punches. The books and PDFs get opened and we try to find the relevant text. This can sometimes lead us down other rabbit holes, as we wonder if we are making other incorrect assumptions based on previous experience. We assume that touch attack spells that miss burn that spell slot, but is that justified by the text (Spoiler: Yes)? That can take time.
I think new players have an advantage in that they don't have to worry they are unknowingly holding on to outdated rules.
