I don't know much about gear, but there's a glider with stealth capability, and I hear the pvp mount is very nice cause it's super fast?

Ship-wise the speeder is probably best for smuggling, it can hold a couple of tradepacks of w/ever you're smuggling, and it'll outrun non-speeders when going from east-west or west-east. For north-south/south-north there's apparently something called "trade-winds" which makes certain ships (the black pearl) go faster than the speeder, but not sure how that works.

 

If you just wanna gank traders though you're probably best off just waiting at a beach near a tradepost (in stealth) and waiting for a vulnerable target you can pick off and steal the tradepack(s) from. Rezz points tend to be pretty closeby though so be careful they don't come back and kill you for the effort :P

 

Good to know! Once again your info is most valuable!

 

@Steelwind, also thank you for your input! Always good to have a second opinion! You are only solidifying my temptation to go with the Hermit build as it seems to fit my preferred playstyle, even if it sounds as though it may be a semi-common build. At least it's not the "go to" PvP build and requires a more skillful/tactical play instead of the supposed no skill alpha strike. 

 

You guys are making it harder for me to wait for the NA Client lol!  :blink:

you're welcome, now go run outside, scream, and roll around in the dirt until you calm down a little. Then find something to distract yourself with as it's not going to get any easier if you keep getting more info :P

keksx, thank you for the awesome and informative read. I love the stories part and would love to hear more experiences like these from players. The atmosphere, community and personal experiences are, in my mind, what I'm looking for. Those are what made me keep playing other MMOs for a longer time than expected. Cheers.

Combat System
 
One of the most controversial aspect of the game is the combat system.  It is a simple "tab-targetting MMO combat"-system you can find in many other games. 
People say it's boring, stale and not state of the art anymore.
 
Well, this is mostly true. But, it's not really a bad thing. Because it works. You don't have any dumb mechanics, it's not just button smashing as if it was a fighting game. It's a tactical tab-targetting combat system with some action elements. 
 
 
Not sure what class you play but in my opinion you missed some important aspects of the Combat System in your review.
 
First of all only tab-target lock is not enough... the character needs to aim or at least face the target to be able to attack.
This allows you to break enemy's chains or combos if you are able to move while fighting.... 
Also you forget the entire Combo-System, this includes movements and skill combination to unlock ability's, extra damage, no cast time on the next skill, cool-down resets not to speak of the vast amount of Group-Combos that if done right in a duo set-up can stack and make it possible to pwone groups of 6 enemy's.
 
Additional the targeting system allows very fast attacks, this again is anything else then boring.
 
Me personally, I love the combat-system, I feel like playing Tekken in an mmo... and daily I figure out new ability's, combos and such... 
 
My Class is Fight/Calling/ Will or Illusion..

Thanks for the heads up! Synergy and more details for combat system are in the works, its just not that easy to explain it through text. I am planning on doing some video guides and stuff like that and then I will completely rewrite the combat part and add more stuff.

The paragraph you quoted is just to get rid of the "is it like TERA?" Questions. But yeah, I shouldve gone into more detail to not let people think its a simple combat system.

I play a lot of classes since Im currently getting all trees on 50 XD

If you find anything else I should add, please do tell :)

Also he forgot to mention the "Obstackle Detection" system, it's working very well in AA, i remember from beta that in a dense forest i've had problems shooting with my ranger because i "couldn't see the target".

Its actually pretty annoying because it looks from the middle of the character. Fights on a tradeship are weird with range

But it's also good, since you are able to use the environment and the obstacles around you for your advantage once you master it.

Had a lot of troubles getting used to the backflip double fireball in ships since I always flew out the ship xD Learned quite well to aim on the masts and wheels etc to prevent it.

That would be a huge waste, having 50 chars spread around the world would be a lot nicer :P

Awesome! :)

 

 

I've starting working polishing a few blocks. I will rephrase some stuff to make it more clear and also smaller since I think I've talked too much on some points that are not as important. So in the next couple of days I will add videos and some more pictures to complement the text more.

I need basically "action shots". So if you can  get good pvp footage and stuff like that I would appreciate it. I'm currently trying to do this myself but everytime something good happens I don't have recording sw up :D
