Another gaming session with the popori duo, it’s great fun to play as a lancer / mystic duo in this game.
Near the end of the starter zone there are a couple of instanced quests that offer more of a challenge to a duo of characters than general questing. Tanking as a melee in Tera seems very positional – my lance attacks do damage in a line heading in front of me (which makes sense). I only have one cleave like area attack so far so I can’t just jump into a big crowd and expect to grab all their attention. Rather I have to angle across the line of an advancing group to catch them as they run in.
The mystic class has helper pets called thralls. The first one is a tank-lite pet so I do find myself fighting for aggro against this little guy. That’s actually a good thing as it’s giving me practice at aggro management from an early level.
The end of the island has a fight against a BAM, it was soloable on my priest as there’s a NPC healer tagging along. As a tank/healer duo it was a nice workout of dungeon-like difficulty.
