I think the point wasn't that there was no variety of skills in the execution, but that it's actually possible to not take damage and kill higher level enemies that you normally wouldn't be able to in other MMOs.


tangentially, yes.

unfortunately, it's best to just tank damage to kill most random mobs I've seen. I haven't gotten past level 15 yet though. I spend most of my time in PvP.

Next beta, I'll have a bunch of PvE challenge videos up.

If you can next BWE, you should try the renown heart in northeastern Gendarren Foothills. Gist of it is that you're supposed to fight monsters for this guy running an arena there to break them in so he can train them. You pick a cage, select a difficulty (Hard spawns a veteran mob), and then you're locked in the cage with them until one of you gets knocked out.

I mention this because the cages are quite small, and you won't be able to kite effectively in them. There also isn't enough room to simply walk out of the way of some of their attacks, so you need to dodge properly in order to survive, and perhaps use some control conditions. Did it with my Hammer/Greatsword Warrior.

Could make for some interesting videos, although I did find that the camera was a little problematic.

These "skill" videos are showing me how much I was spoiled by TERA's combat.


You mean WoW combat minus tab-targetting? Cuz that's pretty much exactly what it is.

Xeeh_Bitz is just upset the combat isn't as deep as WoW.

Believe I was at least 30 by the time I found that area. Think it's a 26-ish area, and you can access it pretty quickly by going west through Snowden Drifts, the Norn 15-25 area.

Nice, other than your auto-attack. I believe you used another skill, what? 4 times?


You seriously need to stop feeling sorry for yourself.

The player killed the Veteran Oakheart in melee range without taking damage.

Do you need someone to explain before you mouth off everytime, or can you do some critical thinking on your own?

Oh god my hatred for that game... but anyway, explain to me how that game is at all skill-based? It just baffles me that anyone could think that game was at all skill-based in any way, at least more-so than any other MMO. Could you by chance link me a video showing me the skill?
