Anyone hate the Valkyrie Awakening?

The mobility looks terrible, no combos and the movement attack look so predictable. No seriously... take a look for yourself. She does like 90% of the same animation.

Not only does it look ridiculous. It looks too heavy especially when you have a tiny character like mine. No I'm not complaining about realism but I can complain about how ridiculous this thing looks.

It's a thing twice the size of your character wielded with one hand. It's not a weapon, it's an embarrassment, some sort of giant comedy sea shell. Although the outfit looks amazing.

What were the developer thinking giving a lance twice their size which they wield in one hand. For starter, a lance is designed for mounted combat or used as short pikes against cavalry... but the types of lance used in actual combat were just basic spears. The type of lance they've given the Valkyrie not only destroy the developer description of the class  "Valkyrie melee weapon are more smooth and have elegance"  but the weapon is used for jousting... a sporting weapon that never even saw the battlefield. I'd be able to get past all the unrealism if it actually looked cool not ridiculously stupid. Why even turn the game into Tera or Soul Calibur?

 

The lance won't change but I though I give my opinion on this. Though got me thinking... don't think NA/EU voice matters anyway.

 

Edit: The lance awakening is fine but the christmas tree is throwing me off... I hope we get an option for a much smaller and normal looking Lance. Because this is just ridiculous.

Just saw the released of the Maewa Awakening. I just had a feeling that, that should of been the Valkyrie awakening because she wield it just like a Lance.

Wish I didn't level a Valkyrie to 55 but I'm not going to reroll, just gonna play another MMO. Hate when developers describe a class as something and then in the future completely destroy the original vision.

I would have to agree.  First off, they change Valks up by giving them lance and shield .. wow, so much different from sword and shield, not.  I am happy to see the shield is actually a shield, but the oversized pine cone beside it .. ugh.

God I hope I don't have to be force to use this gigantic ugly Christmas tree just to be competitive in PvP / PvE.

Not only does it look ridiculous. It looks extremely too heavy especially when you have a tiny character like mine. No I'm not complaining about realism but I can complain about how ridiculous this thing looks.

I love the Valkyrie and I love the developers description of the Valkyrie "Valkyrie melee weapon are more smooth and have elegance

Seems like it isn't true at all now. The lance won't change but I though I give my opinion on this.

What what what?? 
Man valkyrie awakening is OP! Mobility is fast! Normal valk has no mobility, but awakened she is mobile. It doesn't really look ridiculous. You have a wrong impression, saying it's heavy by just looking at her visual is wrong.
There is a new korean streamer lately, he stream a level 58 valkyrie. You gotta watch him if you wanna know how good is awakened valk.

That's just the cash shop costume she launched with though, what does the lance look like normally?

Suppose I could log-in to the Korean client, but I'm feeling lazy today. Anyone have images of other costumes reworked for awakening, or even just her normal gear?

Got me curious .. so I watched some footage with it .. and she is still slow, and the weapon looks clunky and performs clunky.  A bit better mobility than she would normally have, but when compared to the other awakening weapons it looked like she was a slug.  The play style doesn't change at all.

The most embarrassing thing on that image is her outfit.

I don't play valk but the awakening weapon looks much cooler to me than her tiny little shield and needle.

Lance is a good idea, it's just the particular weapon skin being too fat. Something like this would be a lot better:

We'll have to agree to disagree, because I think it looks ridiculous. :P

I can't imagine using that thing in hand to hand combat.  It looks like a jousting lance, which would be used strictly from horseback.

I dunno, I like the concept.  But I've never played a game with a weapon like this, so it's new to me.

Totally hideous, and what is worst is that outfit (just gave up hope on proper armor for valk), was it to hard to go something like mystic knight  on dragon's dogma? it would have fit Valks perfectly, but no decided to come with the worst idea ever, something more like lancers from Monster hunter wich are fine in there considering their weapons materials, but here? I just doesnt fit the world at all.

Probably has something to do with the fact that we associate lances with jousting found in stereotypical medieval movies, based on tacky jokes, like A Knight's Tale. It's not a weapon, it's for show. It's an unnecessary large and heavy blunt object with a pointy end that was never intended to be moved around like a sword, in fact, was never intended to be moved around at all, as they were often tied to the knight's arm, sometimes even the horse. And, even if you somehow were capable of moving this large object around like a sword, it wouldn't be of any benefit, because of its weight, balance and blunt shape, it's not ideal for blunt force like a hammer or mace. Carrying around a lance as a melee weapon is just as stupid as carrying around a giant cannon, but that doesn't stop game developers does it, and who's to say that it won't make its way to BDO as well?

Derp, derp, forward thrust, derp, forward thurst, use shield to deal cone damage, forward thrust, derp, derp, forward thrust, derp, hit minimal amount of mobs, derp, forward thrust, slow attack, derp, slow-slow attack, derp, derp, derp.

But, who am I to voice my opinion on the matter, when there are people out there who actually enjoy Michael Bay movies, and anime like Sailor Moon. These freaks of nature need to be catered, too.
