Re: [Official] Tera Online Thread

I was on for like 10 minutes. Channel chat seems to be happening even at 2 a.m. in the morning. Lots of just blah blah more than anything though. It might take some time to get back into. I found my zerker lacking compared to GW2.

Yeah transitioning from GW back to Tera is interesting...

I think if players desire true end game progresson Tera would probably be teh way to go tho since GW2 lacks the true gear grind some love

the game gear grind in tera is more rewarding than most mmo's as it allows you to not only qualify and survive harder endgame content, but to do said content in smaller raid parties, thus allowing each participant a larger share of the drops, so in the long run the grind pays for itself. to those familiar with the game; when i was 60:150 i had to 8 man NT to survive, and be lucky if i got 100g worth of drops out of it. now at 60:160 i can 3 man NT without any risk at all, and my guaranteed share of the drops is valued at least to 500g - often more tera is less of a grind because it does not require you to craft - as often the most boring grind is securing enough components. while crafted gear is still better than full drop gear, the advantage is only by a few% margin - nothing a non-grind intending player would miss. the tera grind also help encourage more party dungeon play as some instances drop unique near equivilent outfits that may be desireable to different pvE and pvP type players.

berzerker and lancer have a block and self heal

warriors have a weak block and mostly avoid.

they are very different play modes, so decide carefully.
you might want to play a warrior at level 20 during the
avatar creation stage, so you can decide if it's your taste.

Yeah I had a max warrior in beta back in the day to 36. It was different. If anything the most unique tanking mechanic in any mmo out there.

I saw there was changes to warrior tanking. Did they make it easier? I remember the warrior dps was lacking in PvP and that is why I went bezerker when the game launched.

My Bezerker is at 52 as well Thing.

is it easier for a warrior to tank - hell no. if you want an easy tank, play lancer(who can pull and hold aggro) or berzerker(who only holds aggro till someone else crits).

only a skilled player warrior can also tank - the warrior update made that possible... before all a warrior could do was avoid and dps. the problem with a warrior playing the tank roll is he can no longer dps much, because as the primary aggro he can't get behind the bam in order to crit reliably.

so under geared player still prefer a lancer, high geared players may prefer a warrior since the warrior can avoid/dps and not tank at all, since other high critting dps will keep pulling aggro off the tank anyway.

this is sort of like how low geared players like priests (where they need more heals), while high geared players like mystics (less heals needed, so they prefer the higher crits and crowd control a mystic makes possible).

you probably have a rename scroll in your game mail. when the servers merged back in november, higher level actives got priority over lower level dorment players - it's just tough luck, sorry. i even lost a name i took in prelaunch because i only got it to level 13, while someone on another server months later took that same name to 60. the best way to find out if a name is still taken is to use character creation and try each name you want on a new level 0, then delete that character and the name will be released for use within a minute, and you can then get it through your rename scroll on the higher level avatar you wanted it for. i'm not sure how the rename scroll resets if the names you try are already taken, but i guess you could try it that way too - i just don't like to risk it as i like trying a lot of different names to see which are still free, then pick amoung them. if you use the rename scroll, the moment you try a name that's free you are now stuck with it.
