It will be interesting to see what this new combat system is, though the over-the-top stylized fantasy isn't exactly my bag. Also not a terribly big fan of Eastern MMOs propensity for hardcore grinding and expensive moneysinks. It will be to interesting to see if TERA departs from its Korean brethren in this latter regard.

I love over-the-top fantasy, but I gotta agree on the eastern MMO part. I have been following this game for a while, and really it sounds like EnMasse is trying to "westernize" it, or at least be better than Aion coulda been if NCWest gave a shite.

@ Joshua Przygocki

A true westernization for TERA would be great. NCSoft's idea of westernizing Aion was to change the name of the mobs into western fantasy clich├ęs instead of sticking with the cool, alienesque Korean names. Aion was murderessly expensive in the pocketbook as far as standard cost-of-living moneysinks are concerned, to say nothing of it's grindfest nature. While I no longer play Aion, MJ Guthrie's latest Wings Over Atreia article shows it's still an out-of-hand grindfest as she pursues her Miragent armor piece by piece, which means stress for North American/European players and pure bliss for Easterners. Here's to hoping TERA gets a true transformation treatment from East (vanilla) to West (chocolate), but I wouldn't hold your breath.

looks exactly like earlier Aion trailers. Not sure it's a good thing

I was a little taken back by the low res. I had thought based on what I read and viewed that it would be less cartoony and more realistic. I was quite turned off by this.

Bad VO but hot chics.

If I do play this I must admit, my toons will all be chics. [Shrug] sorry...

I like the cloth physics, like how the fabric shifts and folds as the character moves. I wish more MMo games have this. I remember when I started playing Dark Age of Camelot all those years ago, I was amazed at how the cloak would move as the character attack.

I'm strangely piqued by the popori race. They look so cute, yet at the same time I can't imagine the hilarity of a popori whacking a club at someone's knees.

The female popori is quite a bit different than the male...

A little to action based to me. I prefer my MMOs to be a little more restrictive. That may sound silly..but after playing DDO, Fallen Earth, and Vindictus, it's rather annoying. I mean if you got annoyed at how people jump around like idiots all the time in MMOS, these action based ones take it to a whole other level. People swinging weapons and running side to side around like a crazy weapon orgy is not my thing.

So...

Women in TERA got less armor rating, right? I dont think carrying less armor = carrying more armor when it comes to taking damage.

Seriously...who fights without clothes...

It's a little known fact even mens' power level go up when they get less clothes. Just look at Rambo. Bullets can be falling all around him but none will get him because his defense rating has gone through the roof.

And don't get me started on Bruce Lee.

The animations are so fluid and dramatically over the top. Love it.

But yeah, the VO work is really poor. EN MASSE, if you want a good VO actress that actually commands some type of omniscent narrator style, look up Sarah Kestelman (i think that is how she spells her name) from KOTOR II.
