Last post mentioned the publisher, I guess in sort of a call-out manner.

Why was the thread deleted, though? They used to just either a)edit an individual post to remove the parts that broke the rules or b) use the "hide" function to hide an entire post if it broke the rules. Only very rarely was a thread closed and almost never was a thread deleted. I saw the forum moderation sticky and find the entire subject very strange. Forum moderation was never an issue back when I played this game. Has something changed?

Elin animations are faster and always have been. This has been known for a while. It's minor and not a big deal, but when you have a max level geared Castanic Priest and race change to Elin, it's painfully noticeable when you first log in as an Elin This is what I did way back when and have never looked back.

And this is why I'm so exceptionally rude on forums. I'm tired of stupid people spewing their bs around and polluting the player pool with false information. Let me tell you a little story type thing:
I was one of the first people to say that TN glyph was must-have, back in p2p time, when it was still widely considered "optional" due to the 20% chance to apply the debuff(and a few other factors). I was laughed out of every priest topic because of it. Few months later, finally, most people jumped on board(guess they stopped sucking and finally found the time to cast TN). Then it got buffed and became an undisputed must-have glyph...or so I thought... The point? It doesn't actually matter how big or small the increase is. It's irreplaceable, increases damage and stacks with other stuff. 10% or 1%, doesn't matter.

I remember this. The first 6 months or so the game was out, a lot of Priests were pretty bad and what made it worse was the non-Priests didn't know enough to require them to do otherwise. A lot of players tried to play this game like it was their other old non action games, and just wanted to spam lots of big heals and glyphed for more heals and nothing else, as if we needed bigger heals back then lol. They didn't get that they needed to support in all these other ways and how big of a difference that made.

I remember there were a few of us on the forums trying to argue our points about how to play. That's why I made that first guide back when it first went F2P (or maybe it was before that?). I was just so tired of people not playing correctly and I figured if there were people at least telling them in a more formal format they could keep and reference that it might stick more lol. I remember being so irritated just by the large amount of bad Priests in my old guild that I wrote the first version of my guide just for them like a month after launch, and 6 months later the community still wasn't that great, so I just gave in and updated and posted it publicly. Man I'm so glad I'm not the only one who was thinking this back then!

And that was back when Triple Nemesis, Mana Charge, and ES glyphs were still the original versions and not the buffed versions we have now. I remember the insane mana charge spam and praying that TN would actually proc. Haha wow. I had a lot of arguments as well with people about Priest vs Mystic support capabilities and how if a Priest did all these things, we could actually offer quite a lot. Nobody wanted Priests because Mystic support was better and so easy and obvious in how to do it. Priests were the class to carry newb pugs with big heals and nothing else. Getting people on board with how to play back then was definitely a group effort LOL. Sad to see it's happening again. I haven't played at all but had an urge to jump into some EQ BGs so hopped on the forums to see what's up. Not good apparently!

Also on the topic of North America being more popular, I'd like to remind folks of this report that said TERA made nearly 60% of it's January revenue from the Western market.

Nope, I've been playing for a couple of years and I have probably seen a GM talk in global like two times, I've reported dozens of a-holes and none of them have gotten banned.

Enmasse staff probably spends most of their time using midgets to play darts not taking care of the community.

They don't have much time to be shouting in global because they're busy a)reading it, and b)helping players with issues. Typically if you shout for a GM in chat that you need help with something, they'll whisper you. Or at least it used to be like that where they'd have in game GMs on quite a bit, I haven't played much lately since I've been a bit busy.

Well, "fault" in the sense that the original lore was "wait, how do they reproduce anyway?" Basically, there was no lore to it until they were asked the question, and then they came up with a lore that made more sense. It wasn't really some grand design, but the original structure was more of an afterthought.

(Perhaps it also says something in a different way that North Americans were the ones to ask this question when even the designers didn't think about it... lol )

It says something about how Koreans think of MMORPG's compared to us. Lore is an after thought and here, games are built from the beginning with the lore in mind.

Elin animation speed is noticeably faster actually. You can of course succeed with a number of the races so choice isn't a huge issue, but I very clearly remember race switching to Elin after playing Castanic Priest for over a year and it was crazy.

OP - play what you want as long as it's not Baraka or Aman. :D And personally I don't like High Elf either.

Here's mine:

Bottom left bar:
1-5, Q, E, R, Alt + Q, Alt +E, Alt +R, `

Top left bar:
Alt +1-5, Middle Mouse button, Numpad 1, 4, 5, 2, 3, 6 (Numpad is my Naga Hex, hence the strange sequence).

Top right Bar:

And the three other buttons are Left Click, Right Click, and Tab (I like Tab better than C because the game launched with this button being Tab so I got used to it).

Since I'm using some of the default keybinds for other in game actions, they need to be rebound. C is rebound to Character Profile, T to reply whisper, V to quick mark.I think that's it?

As for what skills to use where, I reserve mouse button keys (Middle Mouse, Naga Numpad 1-6, Left Click, Right click) for some of the more important, often used skills that need to be accessed quickly. 1-5 are also important but lower on the priority list. But I also have the same types of skills on the same keys in every game so my fingers get used to it and it makes hitting any keybind a lot easier since it's just muscle memory at that point. So Right click and Q for escapes (and they are right where your hands are resting anyway so you don't have to reach far to get them). ` charge ups since it's easy to hold down with my pinky, etc. E and R I chain so I can get the quick cast KD without accidentally jumping. I would advise individually keybinding every buff (they're on F8-F12 for me) because there are times you only want to buff certain one(s) so you need to be able to pick just those - especially if a teammate needs to run back into the fight quickly, or one or both of you are under attack, etc. - you can't afford to sit there and buff everything and nobody is going to wait for you to do that. Those keys are easy to use for me with left hand on WASD in case I need to move and right hand on the buffs.

My friends are always on the same sever as am I. I don't understand why they wouldn't be.
