There are two other cash skins you could choose from, or simply don't use a skin for it.

Did you expect a Lance to be the size of an umbrella?

Again, those are skins. Also yes lances are not tiny, granted they aren't that thick either but hey...high fantasy.

This is the base skin for the lance.

OP somehow wouldn't be afraid of a woman swinging a tree at him. Or are you mad that it doesn't match your pumps?

Is the middle one the ZZ Top skin?

 

The lance on the right looks like someone twisted string cheese around a candle.

The animations for this, while a bit more detailed are almost direct rips of the Lancer from Tera. Anyone that has played a Lancer in Tera for any extended time will tell you this. Personally I don't care for this awakening at all. I think it should have gone an nontraditional route and went with something like a shield and whip...would have opened up a really unique play style and weapon for the Valkyrie while remaining true to the class.

no I mean intimidating because this is game and practicality is meaningless.

Lancer classes are scary, and coming more comon in KR games. Get used to it.

I PVPed in TERA, a lot, and I don't know of anyone who has ever felt intimidated by a Lancer. The most common response to seeing a Lancer has always been "Oh, it's just a Lancer," which is pretty much the same response we will have to seeing a Valkyrie awakening in BDO. It's a big, clumsy, easy to predict, dork, that barely functions properly.

It's just a game? Practicality is meaningless? Practicality has everything to say in immersion. Immersion has everything to say in why we're here playing this game to begin with. If immersion wasn't important we would all vote to get super-duper cool Titan Force outfits from TERA Online, because why the f*** not include super heroes from other universes into this fantasy genre.

Or, maybe lightsabers. Hey, I think my Valkyrie would look really cool with a lightsaber in this game, and a Darth Vader helmet.

Oh, and where's my police car mount? I want a police car mount. And a teddy bear costume. A sailor suit would be nice.

It would make perfect sense if my valkyrie was using a pitch fork. Pitch forks are cool to some people, because of Poseidon, or whatever, even though Poseidon has nothing to do with Valkyries what so ever. And, instead of a shield, my valkyrie could just use a lifebuoy. I mean, how is this not the most threatening shield you have ever seen?

Part from that cold stethoscope threatening my delicate skin that's one intimidating looking dude holding that lifebuoy. I would want to mess with him while he was holding that!

Oh, and three Korean RPG's is hardly common, but yeah, sure, let's pretend that three out of a thousand equals a majority.

It looks terrible (Warrior awakening also does) like freaking shounen anime

 

This kind of thing is why I never buy asian MMOs, because they're visual syphilis, this one just snuck it in the back door bait&switch style after the fact

The OP and others are complaining about how that specific lance skin looks, they aren't complaining about how the actual awakening functions. Sadly I wish it was that kind of thread since that would be a better topic of discussion rather than "I am displeased with this cosmetic thing that I'm not even forced to use."

:(

You are forced to look at it though.

Which is why I try to PK anyone I see wearing wings

Not sure if we're discussing the looks of the awakening or the skills. But in my opinion, the awakening (just like any other class) will make it OP. Valkyries are already OP (I play one), they can heal, tank, burst dmg, block, stun etc. With the awakening, they'll be able to dash. Now they just need a big AOE attack to be the gods of all classes.

If they want the lance to be long like they are IRL on horseback, make them "grow" larger when you have it out on horseback only, just like how your shield grows when you're in combat stance. But when on the ground, shrink that thing.

So you basically didn't look at skins that come with it nor did you actually look at the skills or the gameplay. Yet you make a thread about how bad everything is. You actually deserve some prize with this one.

I like some of the lance skins more than others, but the weapon as a whole is cool. The skill animations go well with the look of the weapon. Smash the ground and plow all the rear ends.

Oh I've seen it alright. I have a level 55 Valkyrie so I do look at the game play hence why I made the comments about how the combo is predictable etc... but its alright if you miss it. Not everyone is good at reading but you should work on it at your age though.

You like the lance skin... okay are you just mad that someone has a different view than you big boy? If you like the same repetitive animation over and over again, great good for you. But for some of us, we like variety.

 

Edit: Not everything I said is bad. I did say I didn't mind the Lance, if it was a smaller and more normal looking. Again, you missed that. So instead of claiming I do this and that I didn't watch the game play video etc... why don't you get the facts straight first? Might take awhile for you since your reading is not so good but trust me, its going to be worth it especially in the long run.

When you get the fact straight, you can give yourself that prize your talking about.
