Quests in TERA: You're the star of the story

Seriously I don't want to be the star in a mmo. What's the point of being the hero when everybody else is as well?

In aion for example some npc's go like "oh hey! your that great deava everyone is talking about why don't you go deliver this letter for me" :S

@Laguna Same thing with GW2 and swtor. I guess you will have to live with that.

@paterah The public quests in gw2 atleast seem to give more of the "random stranger(s) saves the day" kind of feeling. And that's what i'm looking for.

I just don't understand why developers will design a game in such a setting with female characters fighting and adventuring and what not while wearing HIGH HEELS... (and in the case of other games, frilly skirts too!) what the hell is the point of that?

I will also qualify this statement by saying: I am a hetero male, I love hot chicks in sexy clothes and such, but only when it makes sense to the subject matter.

Otherwise, this is a good looking game.

I dont understand why everyone have to run in that goofy bend over style.
Have the animators stopped watching how people run in real life, like at the Olympics ?

I love reading articles about it, but every time I see TERA I get a mixture of feelings about it not BEING OUT YET!

@ZorClone and @Wurm - it's called artstyle - in this particular case, an asian one. Learn to like it :)

Being a ninja, I can tell you that all ninjas run like that. The real problem being that there are no ninjas in Tera. They are all just poser wanabe ninjas. Therefore; this game must be assassinated, in the dark, silently.

But seriously, I wish they would mix in some real gameplay footage in their videos instead of this studio camera crap. Between GW2 and Tera doing this in all their videos, most gamers won't even recognize the game once they see it for real.

@Aganazer There are literally weeks worth of actual gameplay footage of TERA on youtube. And there was a recent KOR test, so a very good amount of them are only two weeks old. If any of the upcoming games are fully transparent in that regard, it'd be TERA,
