Aha, Sobee.  From now on, Sorey's going to be bottled water in my head.  Even his color scheme matches.

Anyway, in contrast to Sorey and Alisha, which so far seem rather bland, I am definitely excited to play with Rose and see how her arc plays out.  I hope she at least has a somewhat large part and isn't relegated to side character with a few lines here and there after her part in the main story ends like so many non-main characters end up in Tales.  Of course, because I'm most interested in her probably means she's going to be screwed over the hardest.

If Sorey being hideous is one of your reasons, don't worry, I'm pretty sure most of us think that way.

FYI, the Zestiria teaser anime aired earlier. It has some cute shots of Alisha and lets you get a handle on the personality of some of the characters.

Yeah, I'm a main Mystic.  I play a bit of Priest when my tank friend is with me, though I'm generally too afraid of playing with random pickup tanks (and parties) to play Priest otherwise.

Also, you can solo Normal Mode Shandra now.  It's going to blow your mind if you decide to play for a bit.  The hardest part of Manaya's Core for Mystic solo is probably that normal enemy between the first and second boss that summons ice dude thingies.  Unfortunately, they removed Shandra Hard Mode with the expansion update, something I am extremely disappointed about.

Slayer seems to be a good choice for beginners.  It's supposedly pretty easy to get a grasp on with its learning curve.  I haven't played it myself, so I can't really comment.

Berserker is actually pretty fun, not my style, but fun if you can get over the slow movement and attack limitations.  It's the only heavy armor class I've ever played in a MMO, but heavy armor looks really good on High Elf females, so I had to try it at some point.

Mystic is super fun, but if you plan on partying with it, it's extremely micromanagement-heavy due to having a lot of support spells they need to manage at once.  It's probably not the best class for beginners.  But don't let that stop you!  I find Mystic fun to solo with, even if there are a few level ranges that take forever.  

Priest acts as both a support character as well as a healer and is a bit easier to deal with all around.

If you plan on playing a healer, know that Priest is far less annoying. Mystic doesn't get an AOE status heal, Priest does, which is a pretty big sanity saver in this game.

Anyone playing?  It's basically a free update, so you might as well try it if you've ever played TERA before.  Or even if you haven't, now is a great time to start due to the ease of getting high-tier equipment.

It adds a region to the game and raises the level cap to 65.

Storywise, it's pretty bad, but not Killian/Kelsaik storyline bad.  The side characters are decent, at least.  But, really, that's not saying much because I'd say the only time TERA had a decent story and interesting lore was the Argon arc, which I admit I'm heavily biased to because I loved the Argons.

There are a few things I didn't really like:
The nerf of old dailies to push into the new.  Totally unneeded.  Especially because the new dailies are heavily, heavily biased against solo play at 65.  Basically, old dailies give less than 5 gold each now.
The removal of half of the dungeons in the game. Including ones they just added last patch.  Why? Why remove so much content?  I hear KTERA re-added the solo dungeon Ghillieglade that was removed as Net Cafe-only, but that's the only one re-added.  This is particularly sad for me because I take pleasure in returning to old-ish dungeons and soloing them for the challenge.
Now the only really solo-challenge dungeon is Sabex Armory. And Baldur's, I guess?

Future updates are adding a Castanic Female/High Elf Female-only class known as the Arcane Engineer, so that might be neat, but otherwise classes at 65 feel a bit unbalanced.  At least Mystic got a few much-needed PvE buffs via glyphs for Raising at 120% Stamina and a defense-down on one of their spells equivalent to Priest's Triple Nemesis.  I'm sure they'll work on this.

Yeah the money grinding is the worst part of Suikoden 1.

Fortunately, the gambling dude Gaspar has really bad luck and with some resetting you can win 999,999 in about 5 rolls. He rolls a 1/2/3 Storm and 1/1/1 about half the time.
24  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn + Suikoden discussion. on: December 21, 2014, 11:33:22 PM
Yeah, I agree.  I think Vampires do have a place in Suikoden due to Runes and Dragons and whatnot, but having such a persistent boss that requires a special sword to kill and appears in 2 main series games not getting a full explanation until a side game is ridiculous.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn + Suikoden discussion. on: December 21, 2014, 10:41:58 PM
Neclord's so strange.

He doesn't make as much sense in Suikoden II without playing Suikoden I.

But he doesn't make sense being with Windy in Suikoden I without Suikogaiden.

Psaro is stupidly popular in Japan, I'm not really surprised he's in. I'm more surprised that he wasn't announced already, actually.

(Of IV's villains, I actually preferred  Estark.  That battle felt much more grand-epic-final-battle-y to me. Also, better boss theme).

Habit.  I've been calling it PSX for about 15 years now and I doubt I'm going to stop any time soon just because it annoys some people.

With the Yen so low right now (it's like $1 USD to 118-120 yen, it basically tanked), I'm pretty sure importing that PS4 will be cheaper than buying one new in North America. I don't know enough about European prices, but maybe theirs, too.
29  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Dragon Warriors on: December 20, 2014, 09:12:09 PM
I'd personally like a few from VII. Maribel, Keifer, and/or Aira would all be fun.  Particularly Maribel would have absolutely hilarious battle quotes.

I wouldn't even go that far.  Some people still drive around in cars from the 50s, even now.

I imagine it might be similar here.  It's simply an older car.
