    I'm running a 64bit Windows 7 OS, a 2.80Ghz AMDII x6 processor, only 4 GB of Ram. with a GTX 460 video Card.

    I did have the game on max setting. But that said its running the unreal engine and doesn't support higher DirectX so it will work well with most Systems.

    Zyran's system has a GTS250 video Card, And a Dual Core processor that I don't recall the spec on. It still ran near max settings fairly well.

    The only real noticeable difference between our two systems was some small environmental effects weren't noticed on Zyran's pc, and depth of shadows.

    Here is a second video I tossed together with some other footage in the newbie zone (Island of Dawn) I took while Zyran/Reave allowed me access to the game during the CPE.


    Nothing fancy just some normal game actions using a sorceress.

    The only reason I didn't turn up my settings higher was because I was streaming live for most the event. Without the live stream my pc had no trouble at all and response times were fast and smooth. With the live stream going, the graphics suffered a little, most noticeably by loading npc textures slowly. Even with the live stream, I had very little lag.

    Don't know about you guys, but as soon as I get to play... I'm goin' the PANDA! :D

    Awesome video. :bigthumbsup:

    I just love the idea of the "hypergates" for flight travel. Really cuts down on those loooong flights you get in WoW, yet having some spectacular visuals to boot.

    Really can't wait for this game. Between this and SW:ToR, I think I'll be satisfied with my MMO selection for a long time. :D

    Thanks for that, looking great. However, I can quite safely say there is a question that we all want answered about the sorceress.

    Do her boobies BOUNCE??!! :p

    Yes. I heard that cloth moves freer than plate too.. Look up soft body technology if you want . ;) It's really nice. I loved how my character's hair moved fluidly with me as I was swinging my greatsword around. And jumping and having your clothing react in a proper way was fun too. ^.^

    And yes, I loved the pegasus hypergate. I had a Star Trek moment of "going into Warp". >.>;;

    Awesome

    Wow, thanks for the E3 vids. Gonna roll a Baraka Mystic. How soon do they usually announce servers prior to launch?

    Depends ont he game, I think Aion we knew about the servers quite a few months in advance, but some of the naming was changed just pre-launch. Part of it is translations from K-Tera will allow assumptions to be made.


    No idea on that front, I'm going to assume some key quests have audio, less important don't, as per most MMO's I've played. This is only a guess by me though, I haven't researched the matter as I dont mind either way ;)

    More developers should prelist servers to help communities/guilds organise themselves.

    They did announce they will have free server transfers awhile back a launch to help players battle queues. So this will be a big help in helping guilds move where they want to be easily.

    Tera Online Review

    An indepth review from K-Tera. Gives a good idea what to expect. While I love their ideas for combat, many of the other things smell of Aion. Hopefully they will properly westernise this gamethis sort of thing won't fly in the West:

    "There are a lot of monsters to kill and you won't find yourself grinding or questing in the same area for more than two or three levels. But if you want to level up efficiently, it's essential you find a good grinding spot with a repeatable quest."

    "Crafting in this game is a joke. Everyone can achieve the max level within few hours just as long as you have the materials ready."

    "So if you fail upgrading a +6 it will go down to +5 or it will remain +6. If you're really unlucky you can go from +6 back all the way down to +1 by failing consecutively many times, so sad but so true."
