The slow rate of HP regeneration in Tera struck me was one of the most glaringly Eastern features still present in the current iteration of EME's version of the game. The natural rate of regeneration is very slow, and it does not improve much around a campfire. Even with bandages, healing proved to be a chore and subtle timesink. Though I did not find it noticable while soloing (as I seldom lose large amounts of health), it became exceedingly apparent while dueling and participating in deathmatches, where it became a remarkably annoying to be stuck at low health for long periods of time. This annoyance was only compounded by the bright red "you're dying" screen border and the heartbeat.

I fully understand that EME's control over what they can and cannot do in this game is rather limited, but I would be sincerely indebted if they could somehow look at this deviation from their Westernization process. I think a fix as simple as doubling or tripling the amount a bandage heals would virtually eliminate this problem. Westerners have come to expect a more fast paced game with less downtime, and I am afraid that the HP regen rates in Tera will clash with the taste of many playing this version of the game.

there are plenty of options. you have to remember its low lvl content. you cant start asking for sweeping game changes this early in the game. its foolish on your part and it would be just as foolish for EME to take it seriously.

not to mention this has been discussed to death since the end of CBT. you could have just searched for another topic and posted there :/

I agree this needs some attention. As you said not only do westerners expect less downtime but they are also heavily marketing this game as being action driven. Standing around using many abilities just to regen health (bandages, campfires, crystals, potions) to me seems like a direct contradiction to action. It's boring. Absolutely boring.

1) I did search. I got no results for what I am posting when searching for "hp," "health," or "regen".

2) Did you read my post? What "sweeping changes" did I ask for? My suggestion was tweaking the heal value on bandages. That's it. Can you explain to me how that is "sweeping" exactly? I have a strong suspicion you did not read my post.

3) The overall tone of your post is really reprehensible, given that I offered my criticisms in a very constructive and calm manner. Calling someone "foolish" for critique is the exact opposite of what an MMO community should be doing.

I can see it being slow for PvE but it is extremely annoying after duels.

put down the pitchfork guy.

i did say the word "you" but i meant it in a general sense. alot of people have been asking for a ton of changes without taking later content into account.

and yes. it IS a sweeping change. do you have any idea how bandages work later on? do you know how they work when combined with other mechanics like potions or boosted regen from buffs and what not?

i would prefer to take the safe route and experience the content as they have designed it from start to endgame and THEN start trying to give feedback about the functioning of anything.

even JUST thinking about the low lvl content you have a ton of options for regening but alot fo them didnt get used due to cost. cost that would easily be countered when you get higher in lvls.

Coax. Do you honestly believe the majority of gamers (especially mmo'ers) out there have the same patience and trust in an unproven studio as you do? That said, do you want this game to be well received by the masses come launch date? I think it's important that all of us who got to test the game voice our concerns and hope Enmasse takes note.

So in brief are you stating that from your experience, very slow hp regen from 1-22 is fine and that most people will like this/not complain?

PLEASE USE BANDAGES, why is this HP regen crap such a big issue?

Bandages are like food in other mmo's are people just that blind?

You can buy them from vendors it usually takes 2 fully bandages to get up to full and it's pretty much that simple.

USE BANDAGES TO REGAIN HP, that is all.

Given that they can only be used outside of combat and immediately stop healing you once you enter combat, I fail to see how that is an issue. Why do you have concerns how strictly non-combat items would interact with in-combat regen?

I mentioned bandages. They are very slow because of their somewhat lengthy cooldown and how many you had to use to heal yourself. I would go through three to four plus bandages after duels to get to max health, and it was still a slow process because you could not use them back to back, and had to wait some period to use another. I was using the highest level bandage I could.

Two? More like 6 when you are 22 using the lvl11 ones cuz there isn't anything better till 23. What's the cd on bandages,20 or 30 seconds? I can't remember. Spending more then a minute to heal up seems overkill to me. Infact with my a.d.d. and nervous twitches more then 10 seconds erks me :(
