Such meaning.
September is shaping up to be a good month for TERA players on PC and console alike, as both versions are set to receive some pretty major content updates over the next couple of weeks. On September 13th, PC players will be getting the Happily Evil After update, which features the return of dastardly foes from the the game’s history, including the dark lord Dakuryon, who returns as part of a “new and improved” version of the Shadow Sanguinary dungeon.

Shortly thereafter, on September 18th, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will receive a whole new class in the form of the shadow-stalking Ninja. As the Ninja, players will wield massive shuriken to assault foes with deadly hit-and-run tactics, agile evasive maneuvers, and fiery chi blasts. You can check out the Ninja in action prior to its official console release in the game’s latest trailer after the cut.

Once the console version catches up as much as it can, I’ll be curious how they’ll do keeping up with the PC live game over time.

Holy hell. Really? Another elin-only class?

Can they just please rename it to Elin Online? Or Loli Online? Just bury this damn monstrosity already. All it does is pander to the few whales who are left.

Not that I disagree with TERA having a gigantic problem only creating new classes for Elin, but that’s is just for consoles. Ninja has been in the PC version for over 2 years now.

Hopefully at some point they’ll expand the Ninja to cover more races, I mean it can only expand the income from different costume sales to do so.

…although the excuses of not allowing new classes for other races and genders are becoming thinner as long as Bluehole continues to have success with this product. As in, being cheap and lazy out weighs the prudence thinner.

I don’t really understand it. I mean Bluehole isn’t exactly strapped for cash. Casually glancing over the forums and looking in game suggests people spend a lot on various costumes and no doubt people buy other perks. (the month I was playing this I did actually sub for that single month).
And of course… PUBG.

Of all the investments to make, I can see them not wanting to do logical things like optimise their damn game, invest in a 64-bit client, reduce lag ect. But new races for classes should easily make their money back from all the swimwear people will repurchase XD

Which means they’re going for profit. Not really hard to understand.

I mean, let’s be honest here, Tera is not exactly a incredible, groundbreaking MMO. They’re just riding the game along and taking the profit from it. Keep it afloat, give some sprinkles to their paying whales ( elin players ) and people will keep playing and hoping for more.
