    Most everyone in the west is disappointed that it is going to be Elin only. 

    What we don't know is if it will stay that way when it comes to the west. Korea is doing it that way because Elins are by far the most popular played race over there, so they are testing the waters with the new class with the larger populace before going into doing animations for every other race (since all races have unique animations). 

    If it turns out to be well received we may see that when it comes to the West it will be Elin and Castanic only as those are the two most played races in the West and perhaps expand from there. Only time will tell though. I'm just glad to see we are getting a new class. Now hopefully they will bring the power of Lancers in line with everyone else next. 

    "In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

    I'll never stop being truly disturbed that the loli race is as well liked as it is. People need to seek professional help.

    Having a "rookie server" sounds interesting.   I wonder if other MMOs will adopt the concept as well.

    Another class which can only use one type of weapons and is rooted in place every time it uses a skill?

    Man, I'm so excited now...

    Ugh, this is an unfortunate direction for their development.

    In the Lore I read somewhere that the Loli's (elin) are the oldest race in the game.. even though they look really young and no chest(boobs) doesnt make players Pedobears.. I just like there animations more then others besides Elin warrior b/c elins hold 2 swords up in the air is kinda of dumb to me

    How far did you get in the game?  A lot of skills that root you in place at low levels don't as you get the higher level versions of them.  I think if they had any idea how much the Western market judged a game on the low level experience they would have changed that.

    it's the warrior class, just they named it wrong, twin blades, evasive, leather armor, fast.  no stealth, true enough but stealth usually requires too many work arounds to balance for pve/pvp.

    Whether the new class is favored or not is irrelevant as the article points out that Tera has been doing well which in itself is great to hear as the game definitely deserves it and the new server is a much better idea than making the rate faster on veteran servers, good choice.

    Don't fix what isn't broken seems to be the mantra here and listening to the community is ultimately what is helping them succeed, plus Tera is just a fun game.

    Having an Archer,warrior, priest, lancer.. I can say that even at 60 with all those the only one that doesnt root you is warrior..

    every other class behinds slayer and Zerker meaning all the casters have skills that pretty much root you in place to cast the animation... the the guy is saying that this game isnt "True" action combat as it claims b/c "True" gives you the freedom to cast spells on the go instead of locking on casting(root) until the animation is over..

    I agree with you regarding classes only being able to use one type of weapon, but it doesn't sound like you played very long if you are complaining about the rooting.  At higher levels, that's not an issue at all because of the way the animations blend.  You just have to plan your attacks out.  It requires actual strategy, unlike some other games that boast "action" combat by allowing you to spam abilities and circle strafe until you are blue in the face, with no repercussions whatsoever.  

    Tera has some issues in terms of content and their quest system.  Combat isn't one of those issues if you know what you are doing.

    Honestly amazing how insecure people are that elin bother them. THe fact YOU view them in such a way says more about you then anything. I don't mind the race at all, hell I enjoy it (mostly since I can't stand little furry rats as the 'male' varient). Not the main race for all my classes, but to me it doesn't bother me at all.

     

    Still, as someone who like Elin and finds nothing wrong with them, I really find it dumb that they would restrict it to one race. Don't get me wrong, I'm one that doesn't hold TOO much against race locking classes, however limiting it to a single race, particular in a game that lets any race have any class seems stupid to me. Why limit it down when you let anyone place any class, particularly to just 1 race?

    Sorce and archer aoes are the only thing that locks you in place for any amount of time...  oh right, if you wanted gw2 style combat then yeah TERA  would disappoint, fair enough.

    The combat takes getting used to, not because of the action targetting (because dragon nest does it better imo) but because of the lock animation with certain skills

    I was thinking the same thing.  For example.  In the first 10 levels of a berzerker, you were rooted with your charging abilities.  After that (level 12 or 14 if I recall) you start being able to move half speed while charging.  By level 20 you could use a glyph that gave you 100% run speed with Thunderstrike (most used ability).  So, he most likely never got past level 10.  If I based my opinion on level 1-10, I would probably think the same.  Jean-Luc, being sincere here.  Just give the game a shot to level 20, I promise you that you'll see a big difference.  At higher levels it even gets better.

    What are people complaining about the combat? It's silly. Plenty of "real" action games that do the same.

    Plenty of other games that allow for more mobility (gliding) around when fighting.

    Lack of content is the only reason I don't play this game as my only mmo. I simply run out of things to do other than grind dailies after a while.

    I love almost everything else about the game.

    LOOK HERE BUDDY.

    POPORI IS THE SINGLE GREATEST RACE (CHUAS NEXT?) EVER CREATED FOR AN MMO.

     

    I agree with you about players being insecure about elins. Elins are a great variety race, race selection is something I think Tera does well actually (seen TESO? 9 races that are all the same model with slightly different textures, PATHETIC).

     

    Go popori... and chuas... and the flyers...

    Hands down the best combat in an MMORPG in the market today. It's just unfortunate everything else about it is subpar and the developer seemingly doesn't care. Whether it's because Bluehole is rumored to be creating TERA2 or because they're just clueless, I guess it remains to be seen.

    For the guy arguing about how animations root you in place... so what? It creates an element of skill to use the proper skills at the proper times. Not to mention, at the higher levels, you pretty much can eliminate most of the animation delay with attack speed enhancements/weapons. As someone who has tried all the 'free movement' combat games out there, even ones a lot of people haven't yet, trust me, TERA is still the best. It's a shame this game was just utterly wasted in NA. It could've been better.

    A few changes to the ruleset changes could've made this a great OWPvP game. Ah well, guess I'll have to wait for something else.

    I too am of this opinion, I really love everything about the game it just has a lack of content and the design direction is going backwards lately. It's becoming easier and more about the cash shop as well.

     

     

    ALSO I KNEW THAT POPORI LOOKED FAMILIAR UP THERE.

     

    I saw the name and realized it was Sciocccoooocococoococoococooooooo. Wonder if you still remember me, we were in the same guild for a while.
