"man the new guy hasn't posted since Favorable I hope we didn't scare him away" *new guy responds to every relevant post*

well played, well played

although I don't expect you to affect any significant changes in this regard, I STRONGLY suggest playing mystic instead of priest. priest outclasses mystic rather thoroughly in most aspects of the game, and if you want to understand the class balance problems in TERA, mystic vs priest healing is one that has existed since the start of the game and is still going on today. specifically recommending the underpowered class is weird maybe, but for someone who works on the game to only play the OP tank and the OP healer... I think you should try to get more perspective on the struggles of the weaker classes.

good point. I was thinking of playing the priest after what Akuarine initially said, but I am now leaning towards the mystic. I do like a challenge. AND its no fun to heal without some work.

I mean if i decided to let my party die, I can't blame other people if I am a priest, since I should be an automatic heal. :P

Are you going to be looking at the endgame of Tera? Currently there is actually no incentive to do anything in this game.

Endgame PvP battlegrounds are pointless because the BC and KS shops do not sell anything useful and being top ranked on the ladder doesn't mean anything or yield any rewards.

Endgame PvE is also equally unrewarding. Clearing FIHM is pretty pointless since Heartbeats can be obtained via Dreadspire lower floors which anyone in Schisma can clear due to it not being scaled for new gear levels. Clearing Dreadspire upper floors takes around two hours on average and after double digit runs it actually doesn't drop anything but Desolarus Tokens and the occasional diamond which is split between five people. It would be more profitable it to just do Ghillieglades and Island of Dawn quests which begs the question of why even play this game? Just farm dailies and keep farming gear that is not needed for anything?

i am interested in all aspects of TERA, but thats good insight. What would you say would be something worthwhile?

Hello well there is alot of diferences on priest and mystic but it depends do u want more survavility and more healing power? Or you want a class that can support wih less healinv power but wih powerful auras and buffs? It all depends i love both classes priest is easy to play hard to lvl up but its worth it in the end in my opinion is the best class for me i do main mystic as well but i dont love my mystic as much as i love my priest.

thats good to know...i may start a priest afterwards then and see how it goes. thanks for the feedback.

Don't listen to him. You can main whatever you want. Brawler is a class in the game afterall.

with that being said how do you like the Priest class? How would you say it compares to the Mystic?

"We want staff members who actually play the game and know our struggles!"

~Tera NA playerbase

"We introduce to you our new staff member, he mains a level 65 brawler"

...the cringe is real

i guess playing a class in the game doesn't count as someone who actually plays the game. And I can understand the "struggle" with the new class it does not mean I am not going to be only playing that class.

i mean i got to start from somewhere don't I?

So, EME now officially supports pedophilia.

I don't know how you put two and two together? do only kids like candy?

How do you work for the "Community" and not know how the forums work ?
Why are we stuck with people that don't know anything about the game making all the decisions. It's so frustrating.

I actually work WITH the Community team, but I did get my start IN Community. While I would love to know everything in the world, it has been my experience that a lot of games and companies setup their forums, and website according to their own personal style.

And you are right that currently I do not know a lot about the game, and willing and eager to learn, but if it helps set your mind at rest, I don't make all the decisions. ;)

He is still around, actually hovering over my shoulder as i write this making sure I write only "good" things.

Honestly, what else could you write.

Hi! And welcome in the team.

And please try to play some other class to max level too.
Enough of the brawlers, all in EME are playing Brawlers (even if they have other classes too, all they play are Brawlers)... little more diversity please, we have 11 classes.

You are right, but currently since it is my highest level, I am playing it so i can get to know the game content first hand. of course I will go and play the other classes when I can. Probably the Gunner, but I am open to any suggestions.

He mentioned before that he is now working on another project inside EME, and still was helping with TERA. I assume the arrival of Lawllipops means the transition is completing.

Hey don't be transparent, let me call your attention to this topic.

There are a few missing things, like pictures of you, your desk, cats and dogs (but cats > dogs) and alot of other things!

Don't be shy, show yourself.

I am not shy, and of course I want to be transparent. unfortunately my desk is still bare since I am still moving (not a Seattle native), and I beg to differ dogs > cats. I have an all white dog and her name is Mollah (means "I don't know" in Korean) and my fiance also has an all black cat name "Justin" (its actually name means "Just" in Korean) I will get some pictures of them up when I can.

Welcome to the "production" of semi dead game with a bunch of cancers eating it alive (particularly those post-2013 ones). Guess enjoy your stay.

What happened to Treeshark out of curiosity ?

thanks, but TERA is FAR from dead. As long as there are still people who love playing it, then I will be there to still provide more stuff to do!

Are you lawllipops from lake of tears? I had a friend with that name when I played in LoT like 2 years ago o.o

Sadly I am not. And now I need to hunt down, i mean look, LOOK for this person with my name

you are myyy herooo

I wish you much honour and glory in all of your future battles

are you ever going to level a good class, like lancer or mystic?

I have thought about a lancer, but I feel I already have a tanky character. I am thinking of doing a Priest, I do usually play a tank or a healer.

Welcome! So you have a brawler, is that your main or do you have others? But nonetheless, I hope to see you in game some time soon!

right now I have a brawler, but I also made a gunner and a reaper. Im trying to get my brawler geared up and running the higher level dungeons right now, my gear level is only 368 so trying to level it up.
I know I welcomed you on the stream last Friday, Lawlipops, but I just wanted to pop in here and say hi and please don't listen to anything Favorable says. The same goes for Trusted and Friendly. They think they're fooling people, but they're not. -_-
That I will Favorable!~
Greetings Community!

My name is Lawllipops and I am a new Producer here at En Masse. I am excited to be working on TERA and getting to know the community, and working to keep making TERA great and strive to make it even better! I got my start actually working for Community but eventually transitioned to Production.

I try to be as transparent as I can, and strive to work on the games I am on not just from a publishing point of view, but a gamer as well.

I have a level 65 Brawler, but still slowly learning the game and the classes, and look forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions.

I will see you in the World of TERA!
