I don't understand the appeal of TERA's combat system in comparison to GW2's. Been watching some youtube vids and reading some threads but as far as I know:

TERA:
  • Attacks, skills and spells root you into place

  • Some of the classes can dodge

  • You fight over-sized monsters called BAMs which have telegraphed moves

  • There's a crosshair

  • Main attack is bound to mouse 1 by default

  • No tab targeting


  • GW2:
  • Most attacks, skills and spells can be used and cast while moving aside from a very small handful of skills that purposely root you in place. Might account for the floaty feeling of combat some people have mentioned

  • All classes can dodge

  • Elites don't have easily noticeable telegraphed moves

  • No crosshair

  • The "main" attack is set to auto attack by default but can be unset and clicked on to "swing"

  • Uses tab or click targeting, but anything within reach or in the way of your attack or spell when used will be hit regardless


  • So aside from the crosshair and lack of tab targeting, what's so great about TERA's combat system in comparison?

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Yeah that does pretty much sum it up. GW2 has alot more of dynamic types of stuff going on for it as well imo. Between the random events and the skill choices.
