TERA: Slash and Blast

BillMurphyBillMurphy Managing EditorBerea, OHPosts: 2,369MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

In this third part of a lore series on TERA's local heroes, author R.K. MacPherson pens an enticing look into the lives and values of the warrior Popori race in Arborea. Written like an interview, it's an intriguing look at TERA's smallest, but not slightest, of races.

Kiro looks much like any other popori. A dark furred mask frames his eyes, which follow my movements. It's not entirely clear how he manages to move with that greatsword strapped to his back. I ask how long they've worked together.

Read the rest of R.K. MacPherson's TERA: Slash and Blast.

    sure love this game. Popori are cute and i love styopping to stare at the pixels. I will be a human though personally as I have found out recently that Lan from wheel of time is what i make every character look like for 10 years without realizing it consciously...until days ago..

    I won't lie. I agree.

    I'm blown away by the Popori. Everything about them is great, down to the attention the little whiskers got. 

    Considering rolling one instead of my current pick.

     

    Does anyone else get a warm fuzzy feeling in their stomach whenever they spot a Popori?

  • HeroEvermoreHeroEvermore salem, ORPosts: 672Member

    i get warm and fuzzy for sure...though i am not goingot be one i am sure happy they are in this game :D

    In my first CB i saw a pack of popori by the campfire in lumbertown. I stopped and i chatted with these mammals all of which wre very polite. :)

    Tera has brought a lot of "MMO" back for me. I've been playing SWTOR; I've forgotten about gigantic cities and large worlds. Playing the Tera beta has really revived my thrill factor.

  • Butch808Butch808 sheffieldPosts: 319Member Uncommon

    I have had great fun with TERA beta's, i joined a great guild and I will be rolling human (mainly because of the awesome racial traits for PvP) and the fact that i just can't bring myself to play teddybear/littlegirl/spock charactors(hue?). But i do think the animations are funny/cool, esp how elin run with their bums sticking out showing their knickers lol. Sure the questing is standard but i've yet to see a game where it's not(VO doesn't count).

    Enjoyable little article. I do wish it actually revealed something from NA's devs (En Masse), but still, it was silly and fun.

    Spec'ing properly is a gateway drug.

    Same for me :)

    @BillMurphy I told my wife the other day I was born to be a popori. She replied with a punch in the arm....

  • MesfenlirMesfenlir ovPosts: 208Member

    Poporis ftw!!!

  • VikingGamerVikingGamer Nowhere, TXPosts: 1,348Member Uncommon

    The Poporis are just concentrated cool. They are absolutely hilarious. If you haven't looked close at them, you need to see their animations. How they run, how they laugh, how they fight, how they stand, how they mine, everything. They are so silly looking but then they have a swagger and a stance about them that makes it clear, they really don't give a f*** what anyone else thinks.

    Nicely written / RP'd interview :)

    Very positive replies so far too. They make me more curious about this game than any BAM-farming vid I saw, tbh.

    The idea of ganking "big" people as a little critter / cute Elin is somehow very appealing. Takes me back to my gnome-rogue days I guess. I also played a little feller in WAR: a goblin shaman and I really liked their sounds and animations. (Too bad the rest of that game fell flat for me).

    Mine laughed... mainly because I'm 6'3" and she's surprised I'd pick the little chubby critters.  But to each their own.  Power to the little MMO people!

    If I get this game, I'm gonna require at least popori friend.

    I play to make a rabbit-Popori and name it after one of the characters from Watership Down :)

  • This looks a lot like pandas to me...

    Not impressed

    combat was the only fun aspect of this game for me, hope they add in large group raiding in the future.

  • koagzkoagz Biddeford, MEPosts: 13Member

    My Popori will be a Slayer. Popori's as Slayer's have the best dodge animation, in my opinion.

    I will be rolling Popori too, and did during the beta :-)   It was great being a small woodland creature flipping over my sword taking out enemies!

    Though after my beta experience, its left a void as nothing current is holding me over.  Playing some F2P in the meantime (Eden Eternal, Ether Saga)
