Yeah, the axe is seriously not nearly big enough. What is it, a butter-axe?

The monster's outer shape matters a lot in combat because TERA lets players aim their attacks naturally. Auto-targeting games only need a normal attack with different attack motions, but we have more aspects to consider because the player's character actually gets hit in TERA.
"
Sure, lockless combat is great, until ping times are 100ms or greater. Then you're getting hit far more often than it appears on the screen and you can't hit anything for love or money. Just like FPS games.

Then it's just frustrating. And what's the average client < - > server distance in North America that gives you 100ms+ latency displayed in-game?

I'll give you a hint. It's less than the distance from Los Angeles to New York. Enjoy!

The axe is just too funny. Makes it hard to take this game seriously.

@Tom in VA Well on the flip side of that LOTRO takes it too far in the opposite direction. I got a hammer for my dwarf and the head on that hammer was tiny. Realistic I guess, because IRL war hammers don't have heads that are very big (smaller means lighter and easier to carry and swing) but in the context of a game, you like to see something a bit more impressive.

BAM look awesome. Really need a release date for this, close to the only MMO that holds interest to me at this moment.
