     Now then, on to the second concern. You can definately play with a unique build. The problem in GW1 was that all the options made it impossible to balance. Here Anet has a specific set of abilities with criteria (heals, utilities, weapon skills, etc) to help keep them balanced. Given that I didn't feel any ding in customizable play. You can do whatever you want with four weapon slots (main and off hand plus switch) and then you have full customizability of your heal skills, three utilities, and your elite skill.

     I often found people with combo's I'd never even think of. There was a thief with a dagger in his main and a shortsword in his off hand. The dagger gave him mobility and the shortsword gave him many damager attacks. It was very interesting. You will definately be able to experiment with many builds.

Somehow I think that it will be limited compared to the first one because to be honest I have more fun with the game being imbalanced everytime people discover a leet build. Its especially cool discovering a leet build that you do not share and keep to yourself in the first one. This is always the funnest after patches when things may be imbalanced.

 

Do I care about bringing some PVE toon into combat? No. This is not why I play Guildwars and not why I think its one of the best MMORPGs out there today. I have had the most fun in that game whenever changes were made when I was able to create a unique build that was highly overpowered until it was nerfed. Somehow I doubt that GW2 will have as many OP builds to discover. Sure you can call me a poor-sport but experimenting with builds and coming up with one that was overpowered was extremely fun. It especially feels good knowing that the developers are keeping unique builds in mind as they came across them and even came out with additional skills useful mostly for that particular build. I feel that way about starburst since as far as I know, I was the first successful AOE-toucher that I had come across. I came up with an assassin build that was ridiculously over-powered as well that made me want to play for a couple weeks straight because it felt like I always earned glad points no matter what fail team I was in. For over a year I have been farming RA with a necro build that nobody else uses but I have a lot of luck with . .. and the only reason that I feel that its not overpowered is because of the weakness vs Eles. I have had moments with this build I currently use though when I soloed a team 1vs4 many times (vs melee since Im mostly anti-melee) and had people gaping over it. Hehehe I hope I get the same experiences in the 2nd one. The only reason its so cool is because NOBODY ELSE DOES IT! There are other build that have and can today but its a pretty good feeling when I am one-of-a-kind and have been for years.

NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.

I will try both games - Tera tonight :)

However, the above statement about GW2 is wrong. You have 17+ abilities in GW2 available in any given combat. Some classes have much more (especially the elementalist).

Another erroneous data point in this thread is that GW2 is a tab-target game. It is not. Many people played like that during the week end - but it does not actually work like that. Having a target does two things:

(1) Enables information about that mob in your target window (health, buffs, debuffs) as well as showing whether your abilities are in range or out of range of the selected target.

(2) With a range attack it is the beacon or direction of that ranged attack. Please observe that it does not mean that the ranged attack will hit that target - it is just the 'aim' direction.

In melee you hit whatever is in front of you with your melee attacks - it has nothing to do with what you have as a target.

With a ranged attack, your arrow/fireball whatever is shot in the direction of your selected target but will hit the first structure on the way (barrel, other enemy, wall) - if the 'target' moves fast enough the ranged attack will hit thin air. If someone moves into the line of fire they can be like the secret service and eat the bullet.

Net-net: There is no tab target in GW2.

Looking forward to play Tera tonight :)

What I have experienced:

First off I played Tera before the BWE of GW2. I was really really hyped about GW2 and watched over 100+ hours of YouTube content about this game. Tera however.... I came across by coincidence.I thought well lets pre-purchase this game since it looked nice on graphics and the combat system was refreshing for me to say the least. I first participated in the closed beta of Tera and I have to say that I had a lot of fun, with the game itself and the community in the game. Very helpful peeps! So the beta was over and I thought well I like this game, this I will be playing until GW2 is released. 

Yeeeaaah GW2 BWE is started. I joined a guild way before the BWE begun and we started playing. After 3 hours non stop login issues and DC's we finally logged in successful :P. Then the slaps in the face begun:

1. The performance of this game is straight-out CRAP. I run a 2600k @ 5.1 ghz and two 7970's on water oc'd to 1300/1600, a beast i would say. This game (Beta) runs @ 35 fps average utilizing 30% max of my machine. Before anyone starts bragging it is Beta, I know that but if they launch this game in a couple of months IT WILL NOT significantly improve, mark my words. I have enough experience with this shizzle. Also lmao when ppl say they do this on purpose hehehe..... what? You choose to slap ppl's faces on purpose so they go off to other games? mmm yeah I can see the logic of that.... NOT.

2. I was really really positive about the fact that GW2 is skill based. The scaling to lvl 80 in PvP sounded like music in my ears. So after 2 hours PvE I needed to test the PvP. SLAP SLAP SLAP.......... boring as .....[fill it in yourself]. 

3. The personal story OMG. This is another "Unique Selling Point". Well it is hyped big time IMO. It is instanced all the way and it feels fake and clunky. 

4. WvW?! I was so waiting for this massive massive bg where servers compete................well it is one big lagfest where everybody is just hitting random skills because everybody is running like 10 fps and can't see sh*t what is happening. It just doesn't feel like a organised battle when there are over 50 ppl involved. 

I can go on 4 ever unfortunately but this is just my expierence. The fact that I played Tera before GW2 made me realize that Tera is the game for me. It is much more polished and the combat system is better 4 me. Also I think that Tera is a good hybrid of gear and skill based. It's just my opinion and I really think everybody should determine based on OWN EXPERIENCE. I just can't stand ppl judging one game or another if they lack any experience. I was a true GW fan but now?? No sorry............. Elvis left the building. 

(I'm not a native speaker of English so sry if I made stupid mistakes in the WOT above! Peace and have fun with either of the games.)

    The combats work better for the games they're built around. GW2's combat is fast, flowing and full of action in the GW2 universe. Tera's is the same in the Tera universe. There really are no valid comparisons when you look at the overall picture. One's designed for a trinity-free, self-reliance, with active dodging and controlling and mitigory skills to avoid damage, shared support to help allies, targetting for skills that require it (but most don't), etc. The other is built to give an action based combat but around a more traditional style of MMO. It's like trying to argue which is better at combat, an Apache helicopter or an F14 fighter. Each is great in their designed roles.

    If you tried to overlay Tera combat in GW2, or GW2 combat in Tera, they both would fail. The games are built with different core values, and the combat styles reflect that.

Oderint, dum metuant.

I just can't stand the animations in gw2. feeling like im iceskating almost immediatly ruined the game for me. thankfully the RvR is worth the one time purchase.

I still dont see why people are comparing the two because Tera from a technologicl stand point put WAY more work into there combat then GW2. The physics and reactive effects and animations of Tera are what single player monster hunter games strive for. Tera has mastered it in mmo form imo.

Again, I do not deny I am biased. Biased in the fact that I am currently playing Tera and i DO NOT have the full version of GW2 to experience. So is my judegement unfair. Sure. I don't think much is going to change combat-wise in gw2 though. BUT OMG I HOPE THEY GET RID OF THAT STUPID ICESKATING!!!!! ARE WE ALL CONTORTIONISTS?!?! WHERE IS THAT IN THE GW2 LORE LOL!

I have no idea what you're talking about with the iceskating. Never felt anything even remotely like that.

 

I'd also disagree with the amount of work put into combat. GW2 has an extremely intricate, very advanced combat for an MMO. The days of rotations, dps meters, specific roles... they're all cast aside for a system that actually requires skill and paying attention to the fight so you know what to cast and when. The amount of work in balancing such a system must have been huge, but as a result, from what I've seen, there's no one profession that's dominant over others. Anyone can beat anyone... it's about the skill you bring more than the skills you bring.

 

Again, I'm sure Tera combat is great in that environment, but when you consider the dramatically different systems they're built around then you should really realize that there are no valid means of comparison.

I pfefer mobility from lv 1 not unlocked via glyphs or whatever.

I don't play melee so TERA's Warrior/Slayer is out of the question.

Rangers are fairly mobile too however I found the combat with

them boring after a while.

 

In the end GW2's combat is more appealing to my personal taste.

Its always about personal tastes, im sure some people think Final Fantasy series have the better combat system while i think its just s****.

I find GW2 much more fluid and complex than Tera's so i enjoy it more, i even enjoy much more the C9 combat system ( which i think is the best one atm in the market ) and im sure most of the people in this forum hate it.

Both TERA and GW2 combat is deeply rooted in the holy trinity which means ultimately both games still play a lot like WoW. You have to have tank + healer to do group content combined with some min/maxed DPS. This is New?? Where have we seen this before? It is like every other MMO game made in the last decade. A little dodging and aiming doesn't change much. Calling this action combat is the biggest joke ever. If you want real action combat then play Vindictus where there is no healers and no holy trinity.

1. My computer is very much weaker than yours and it ran very very well. Saying that, we at least know that it runs on a crappy pc. Of course by release it will run on higher end systems. They don't have a release day so saying a couple of months is speculaiton.

Umm GW2 doesn't have the holy trinity and healers/tanks either, but you either already knew that or are simply ignoring it.

You do know combat in GW2 is not "deeply rooted in the holy trinity" right? http://www.arena.net/blog/jon-peters-talks-combat

 

Have you played or read anything about the game?

First off I played Tera before the BWE of GW2. I was really really hyped about GW2 and watched over 100+ hours of YouTube content about this game. Tera however.... I came across by coincidence.I thought well lets pre-purchase this game since it looked nice on graphics and the combat system was refreshing for me to say the least. I first participated in the closed beta of Tera and I have to say that I had a lot of fun, with the game itself and the community in the game. Very helpful peeps! So the beta was over and I thought well I like this game, this I will be playing until GW2 is released. 

Yeeeaaah GW2 BWE is started. I joined a guild way before the BWE begun and we started playing. After 3 hours non stop login issues and DC's we finally logged in successful :P. Then the slaps in the face begun:

1. The performance of this game is straight-out CRAP. I run a 2600k @ 5.1 ghz and two 7970's on water oc'd to 1300/1600, a beast i would say. This game (Beta) runs @ 35 fps average utilizing 30% max of my machine. Before anyone starts bragging it is Beta, I know that but if they launch this game in a couple of months IT WILL NOT significantly improve, mark my words. I have enough experience with this shizzle. Also lmao when ppl say they do this on purpose hehehe..... what? You choose to slap ppl's faces on purpose so they go off to other games? mmm yeah I can see the logic of that.... NOT.

2. I was really really positive about the fact that GW2 is skill based. The scaling to lvl 80 in PvP sounded like music in my ears. So after 2 hours PvE I needed to test the PvP. SLAP SLAP SLAP.......... boring as .....[fill it in yourself]. 

3. The personal story OMG. This is another "Unique Selling Point". Well it is hyped big time IMO. It is instanced all the way and it feels fake and clunky. 

4. WvW?! I was so waiting for this massive massive bg where servers compete................well it is one big lagfest where everybody is just hitting random skills because everybody is running like 10 fps and can't see sh*t what is happening. It just doesn't feel like a organised battle when there are over 50 ppl involved. 

I can go on 4 ever unfortunately but this is just my expierence. The fact that I played Tera before GW2 made me realize that Tera is the game for me. It is much more polished and the combat system is better 4 me. Also I think that Tera is a good hybrid of gear and skill based. It's just my opinion and I really think everybody should determine based on OWN EXPERIENCE. I just can't stand ppl judging one game or another if they lack any experience. I was a true GW fan but now?? No sorry............. Elvis left the building. 

(I'm not a native speaker of English so sry if I made stupid mistakes in the WOT above! Peace and have fun with either of the games.)

1. My computer is very much weaker than yours and it ran very very well. Saying that, we at least know that it runs on a crappy pc. Of course by release it will run on higher end systems. They don't have a release day so saying a couple of months is speculaiton.

1. as Kuppa already said there might be something wrong with ur pc cause ur pc is WAY better than mine and i played GW2 with NO PROBLEM

I don't think there is something wrong with his pc. Its definately the game that needs work. But, its better to have a lowest common denominator working, like my pc, and then iron out optimizations for other PCs

Known issues with AMD cards last BWE.

I have a 6870 1GB GDDR5 and a 4.0ghz quad OC'd with high speed Kingston ram (8GB) on a SSD and the game ran like crap at anything over medium settings.

They haven't yet worked with Nvidia / AMD to really iron out the driver support for the engine yet.

Nvidia was still > AMD from all accounts, though the game was currently configured to hit CPU hard and not multi-core.

As well as zero Xfire/SLI support yet.

There are issues that will be corrected before launch.

I remember TOR beta it wouldn't even run at all until I downloaded the latest AMD driver package that had released 2 days before the beta started.

If you are just talking Combat then Tera > GW2 if my opinion.

I played both an elementalist and a thief in GW2, in Tera I have played a Slayer and a Mystic.

I can see how some aspects of GW2 combat appeal to people but to be perfectly honest I feel WoW did both the mage and the rogue better than GW2.  Mostly the mage though but keep in mind I am not bringing pve challenge into my discussion obviously a mage in pve is childs play in comparison to an elementalist in pve in GW2.

Certain posts here lead me to believe the people claiming to play Tera did not play it long.  I am no Tera expect but I have put in approximately 105 hours of play time and I read a lot about it in between clients at my job.  Just 2 main things I wanted to mention.

1.  Animation Locking - This is kind of a problem but I think necessary to keep people from kiting you endlessly.  Now one thing thats important to note is stacking attack speed can play a big role in improving the animation lock issue.

2.  PvE difficulty - I don't think this should come into play when comparing combat but there is no doubt that GW2 has much more difficult normal PvE.  However once you get to BAM's in Tera there is a massive difficulty gap.  A skilled player depending on class can solo some of the easier bams but it may take a while....HA HA I solo'd a BAM Tera is super easy!....and then they try a different bam later on and as they staring at their screen in black and white wonder what just happened they realize not all BAMs are equal.
