TERA teases the Brawler class slated for December’s Knockout update

    
23
Action-MMO TERA is getting a brand-new class in its next update: the Brawler. En Masse summarized the class in a press release today:

“The brawler packs a serious punch and can go toe-to-toe with the biggest bosses in the game. The new hit counter is the key to the brawler’s ‘punch and parry’ fighting style, making her an incredibly powerful tank. And when her rage meter builds up, she can unleash devastating combos with her massive ‘powerfist’ gauntlets.”

The so-called Knockout update is also set to include new endgame armor (tier 8 and 9) as well as two new dungeons: “the pirate-infested Kalivan’s Dreadnaught and the haunted Forsaken Island, where players can earn and use all that new gear.” Expect the patch to land in December for North American players, and check out new screenshots and a teaser vid of the Brawler in action below.

I used to have a fat old man as my character in aion. Safely the computer with the screen shots on it died. :/

My personal observation/assumption is that pretty much more than 50% of all the reactions boil down to disappointment over the gender/race locking of the class to human female.

If TERA just took the existing 3 new classes (Reaper, Gunner, and Brawler) and opened them up for all genders and races as an update I would think they’d have a population explosion similar to when they went onto Steam.  

To me that would have been a much worthier priority than:

1) Creating a new starter zone.
2) Creating multiple class specific armors for Gunner which really didn’t look much better than their normal counterparts.
3) Creating 8-bit weapons skins.  https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/qubicskin/qubic-weapon-skin
4) Creating chibi-car mounts. https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/mellowyellow/classic-charger-permanent-character-mount
5) Creating Beetle mounts.  https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/cutteracc/cutter-permanent-account-mount
6) Creating Foodie weapon skins.  https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/foodiewskins/foodie-weapon-skin
7) Creating “Titan Force” costume sets: https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/popotitanset/popori-titan-force-costume-set
8) Creating “Party Boat” costume sets: https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/graycadets/steel-gray-cadets-costume-box
9) Creating Furry Suits: https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/luckyduckbox/lucky-duck-box

They say they have limited resources with which to make new content.  I believe them.  But I feel the general consensus is that people would rather have classes available to all genders/races, and I think this gets more people playing their game than say, knowing they can buy a bird fur suit on the cash shop: https://store.enmasse.com/tera/item/penguinsuitbox/sharp-dressed-bird-box

You planning to poke at TERA again?
…and you can roll a Reaper too, as long as your Gunner is 40 plus. Though they’re the Elin answer to Death Knights, only with chain weapons. They’re also not to be messed with, unless you are planning to extend your entrails far beyond the proximity of your body. <3

Okay, if I can’t be a burly Aman dude as a brawler, then this game just doesn’t even make sense anymore.

Oh wait, I can run around as a 5-year old with cat ears… nevermind, it never did.

This is great. I am always thrilled to play classes that use punches and kicks in mmos. Martial arts in DCUO, monk in FFXIV, they always seem to have a unique play style. With the action combat of Tera this looks to be hours of fun.

Damonvile BalsBigBrother oh you might be right, forgive my aging memory playing tricks on me.  I have a gunner as well and it was probably fun too but …. um what was I talking about again ?
