    Just curious about people's impressions about this patch.

    My YouTube channel (Inactive :elin25: )
    For forum: (1)I don't PvP nor I refer to PvP unless I specify differently(2)I don't aim to the best gear nor I plan to challenge the hardest instances in the game, I'm a relaxed player, get it?
    Test Image ->

    (Testing Stuff,Don't Ask :ninja: )

  • More like impressions rather than comments if you prefer, this looks to me quite a massive overhaul of Tera's early game.


    I don't really know what to think myself.

  • Ranking based matchmaking. I cant believe my eyes.

    That. Took them about half a decade, though.

  • Will it change the fact, that we have to wait hours for shore sometimes?

    :lol: How I memorize 11 88 0? :lol:

    11 players win shore 88 times and 0 reach +9!

  • It might get better with 70 Patch cuz the PvP Vanguards give a ton of Skill Polishing Exp (Also added Gear Exp) which you're gonna need for Tal's.

    DPS Tier-List (No Idea about LvL 70 Patch but just gonna guess)
    Broken-Tier: Reaper

    Top-Tier: Archer/Valkyrie
    Mid-Tier: Berserker/Sorc/Warrior
    Low-Tier: Slayer/Ninja/Gunner


    Zerk tl;dr from Tobthekingx

  • So... Patch 80 is confusing to me... That means no new zones for leveling to 70, right? I didn't read all the details but it seems so...


    Besides, I don't get how the current gear will be ""merged""... I haven't seen any video... So annoying.... We'll see.

    :lol:
