For the most part, it went really good. there was a few spots where I was standing too close to the mob aoe or I forgot to heal the warrior.
Then we got to the boss. Huge monster- which wasn't too bad. Until he brought his friends. I tried running around to avoid them but then I couldn't heal. Then they took me down fast and we ended up failing.
Tera's healing is a lot different than Lotro. I have to aim my cross hair over the other player, wait for it to lock on then press the button to heal. The other heals does a healing circle on the ground and the other players can walk into. Well with the adds, I was getting frustrated and just started jamming down on all the skill buttons hoping for the best.
It was definitely a learning experience. Thankfully the other player wasn't too mad. I let him/her know up front that this was my first instance in Tera.
I gained two levels while running with the other player. We were taking down signature spiders. Lot of fun.
I don't have any screen shots of the instance, the spiders or fighting along with the other player. But here's a screenshot of another signature mob it was fighting earlier in the night.
And here's a short video of it: http://youtu.be/Ef8k-YKPwMk
The weapon system has some similarities to Lotro. They have enchanting. That's where you take your weapon (hopefully same level you are.) The take another weapon of the same tier/level (doesn't matter if it's for another class. (Oh, each class is assigned a specific weapon. Priests get staffs.) You combine the two weapons together with a special 3 ingredient and that will level up your weapon. Similar to applying ixp runes in Lotro. Basic weapons can go up to level 9 and there is a chance of failing the enchantment.
For every 3 levels, it gives you a bonus. Kind of like adding LI's in Lotro. Then you can add runes for additional bonuses. Like settings, runes and gems do.
Traveling between zones on a Pegasus is fun!
And if you're wondering, no I'm not giving up on Lotro. I still love Lotro- the game, community and my friends in the game!
