TERA’s Patrick “Treeshark” Sun has published a new producer’s letter that focuses on changes to the game’s live team. He introduces new community manager Donna Prior, as well as director of product management Chris Lye.

Sun says that “team TERA is as strong as ever, and we’re looking forward to some great things coming up in the next few months.” One of those things is a “major” content update that will include TERA’s newest class.

Wow…more hyper styled female only classes locked to 1 race. 
I stopped playing when they announced that 2nd female only class. What a load of crap.

With the Brawler they only had to worry about creating 2 different animations sets. 4 with the Gunner. Much more manageable than creating them for all 11 variables.

I agree with you though. TERA is a very profitable MMO, they have some seriously terrible excuses for not doing multirace/gender classes. Brawler is even more upsetting they didn’t make it both genders since the NPC they modeled the class off of is male.

That isn’t necessarily true. My sorcerer is a human female. My sorcerer has way different animations attached to it than a male human sorcerer.

Chinatsu I thought it was going to be an actual “new” class not one we’ve known about for a year.

Line with more hugs TERA is simply a “dress-up-your-waifu simulator.” But it’s good at it ;)

I find TERA’s case quite interesting.
It’s a game where developers use the pretext of time and money to make race and gender locked classes; while ignoring the content.
They just pump out classes instead of making the already existing ones anything more than one trick ponies, don’t do anything with their atrocious “open” world, only bother with the tutorial instead of remaking their shitty levelling experience (and ho boy do they want you to play it several times)… and their concept of endgame is gold grinding for upgrades in dungeons that will get the axe sooner or later, before being repurposed as new endgame in another “expansion”.

There’s probably a really interesting game that could have been made from here… but it the textbook definition of vapid. Useless and empty game world, paper thin classes, just incentives to grind again the same bad content to play endgame stale content that’s not that good either.
