I hope so.

You may notice a bright green glow emanating from your body, don't be alarmed. It's apparently a good thing. Seriously though, you put in your 'healing power cell' and shot people with your giant gun, twas awesome. Smiley: grin

Since im at work and not able to play the game, how do you heal in this game? do you just aim at the person you want to heal? ****, i dont even know how to interact with other players i see, like inviting to a party, or whispering....

Yeah, it's weird and takes a little getting used to. You hit the spell, target the character with the cursor and hit the spell again to "launch" it. Somewhat literally -- you fire out a little sphere in an arc that hits the character and heals them. You can also mouse over two people and both will get healed when you fire the spell; I'm pretty sure they both get healed for less than healing a single person. There's some glyphs you can get later to give you a third person, extend the range, etc. I haven't played a Priest but I assume the basics are the same.

Mystics can also drop healing spheres (you've probably seen them, sort of large pinkish bubbles) that people in the party can pick up and get a heal effect. So when you're fighting a boss, you can drop spheres and concentrate on actively healing the front-line fighters while the ranged people can take care of themselves by grabbing spheres.

To interact with people (invite, inspect, etc) you hit ESC to go into the "cursor mode" and right click on them. You can also click on names in chat to whisper.

Priest get aoe ground runes as well that heal all within. The problem back when I was playing and I cleared all of the dungeons before I quit, was that there are so many ground effects that they can sometimes turn into an overlay mess and you run to get healed right as Boss Mob Drops his oh **** bomnb on the same spot lol.

I was still fun though I got my monies worth out of the game. I just saw my email today that says I have 1100 company script in my account. So I might log in this weekend just to see what changes they have put into the game since I got bored with the end game. The journey was fun though, the personal stories even get pretty neat in a FFXI cutscene sort of way as you advance.

Though for some of them you are forced to group (blah) I was playing at the launch so we had a big guild to do them. Not sure if that's still true.

Yeah, I was running with a priest last night and noticed the AoE "ring" heals. And that the warrior who was the nominal tank never stood still in them even when the priest was trying to use them for after-combat downtime healing. I'm sure that was a lot of fun for the priest Smiley: laugh

My female Castanic (sp? whatever) slayer got some new armor that changed her hair from downward waves to some silly cylindrical up-do. It angered me.

Of course, in this game I'll probably be replacing the chest piece in another day or two anyway.

Watch the hair change actually be part of a background patch and not due to the armor.

Ok, I figured out TLW's question: "Does the game offer anything beyond elf panty fan service?"

It's a pretty standard MMORPG with action-style combat and nicely done graphics. I'm not keen on all the Asian inspired themes (Elin, cabbits, etc) but they're nicely drawn at least.

Quests are stock standard fetch quests with the "Bring me five eyeballs" stuff and "Go visit my brother two towns yonder" bits. There's a main story plot line which I've only followed very loosely beyond the quest objectives as it hasn't been very compelling. But the action game play isn't bad, progression has come quickly (so far, Mystic almost lvl 30 after a week) and the grouping usually isn't bad although people only seem to group for instance runs and fighting enough BAMs literally, "Big *** Monsters" for their quest objectives before leaving.

So it's nothing really special but it's fun enough for the time being. Fun enough for free, anyway.

IMO the combat is interesting enough for the genre to make it worth trying. I dont know if any other MMOs have combat like this, the only game ive played with a little different combat was AoC, but this game is better.

If my elf didn't ride side-saddle, I'd feel obligated to scrub the horse each time she mounted up in those short dresses.

Take that however you will.

My Mystic is now level 32 and my Slayer 30, both doing the second instanced dungeon. I have a Lancer at 17 and parked any other alts. I have a bad habit of storing gear for the active alts (even worse when you're thinking "I could enchant with that" and so you save everything) so I can't afford to keep them more than one or two tiers apart. Cluttered enough with Tier 4/5 gear, God forbid I fill it with tiers 1-5.

I downloaded Tera Saturday night. I thought I should roll an Elin so I could name her Elinda. She'a a Sorc. I also rolled a Warrior. Can't remember the race but she has hooves.

Ranged attacks seem close but the Sorc was far more efficient at killing than the Warrior. Though the melee combat is a lot of fun.

I only got a glimpse of all the bells and baubles that were available. I didn't get into any crafting though I did a bunch of gathering. The Elin is a major dork - not sure I could over to the Steve Urkel run style or the long creepy fingers enough to sink much time into that toon. The Warrior toon was a good model though. She was kind of bad-***.

Dunno what y'all are on about, but I've been playing XCOM, and trying to have enough fun to make up for the extra $7 I paid for it.

It's got a lot of layers, what with the base building, soldier training, and whatnot, and they're deep enough to be worthwhile endeavors. Not so impressed with the combat right now, though. It's endlessly annoying that enemies get a free move once you happen upon them, and the cover system is straight-up broken (you can shoot through walls, no questions asked).

Assault, Heavies, and Support troops all seem really useful, and have cool abilities. Sniper, less so (at least, so far).

Consensus seems to be that crafting isn't worth it until you're max level or close to it. You gain gear too rapidly to spend time, money and energy making any. Of course, gathering might be worthwhile so you can do that crafting someday without starting from nothing.

There's several open world PvP servers. From what I hear, it's a great opportunity for your level 14 to get ganked by bored level 60's outside the first real newbie town.

Really, PvP ain't my bag but there's several servers for it and they seem fairly well populated. I gather that classes suffer from the usual balancing act between PvE and PvP but aside from that I only think about it when I get annoyed at one of the enhancement tiers on my gear being a PvP thing.

Yeah, i just dont get how world PvP works since we are all on the same side apparently (right?? I honestly havent read a quest or watched a cutscene so i may be way off)... Only world PvP games I've played are Rift, WoW and WAR, and they all had 2 distinct factions.

A friend mentioned he dabbled on the RP server so i kinda hunkered down there and will regret it if i'm missing out on good pvp, since I havent seen him play it yet.

Yeah, I was reading someone on the forums say the same. PvP seems "pointless" from a lore standpoint since there's no teams and all the races are supposedly allied against the same threat (and go through the same story of joining up with the commander in Velkia, etc). It'd be like WWII where random Allied soldiers killed their fellow Allied soldiers just for the **** of it and no one cared because, hey, open world PvP.

I believe all servers can have Guild vs Guild PvP which doesn't make more sense lorewise but at least is a little more organized than anything goes.

The "go talk to so-and-so" back and forth stuff seemed a little overdone, and some of the voice acting makes me cringe. Mystic pet looks goofy, but he can sure take a pounding. I liked the blocking with the shield on the lancer. I have a horse now, so I might have to stick with this a little while. Smiley: lol
