My main problem with LoK is the Avatar state, to be honest. In Last Airbender, the Avatar state was a last resort, almost undefeatable power, while in Korra it's just a small power boost. That said, the characters and the antagonists are amazing, and I love LoK to bits.

Hmm. 
I guess I hadn’t thought about it before, 
personally i think it has more to do with the differences between Aang and Korra. 

Aang is a pacifist, he is shown a lot as not wanting to really use extra force when he doesn’t have to. So while I could be wrong here I think it comes down to that Aang just never really uses his bending for fighting when he doesn’t have too. On top of that, his early experiences in the Avatar state weren’t really good ones?
1. He froze himself for a 100 years
2. He went into it after finding out about the destruction of his people
3. That general tried manipulating him into it by messing with Katara
4. After going through unlocking all his chakras, when he finally does get them all he almost gets killed
I think the reason it feels like the Avatar state was used as a last resort a lot more in airbender is because for Aang that was his literal, last resort. 
Even in Lok, his fight with Yakone, he doesn’t use the Avatar state to attack him, doesn’t use it until he takes away his bending. 

Now Korra, I’m pretty sure came out the womb ready to fight, by the time she arrives in republic city she has had years and years of training and was already this power house of a bender and hadn’t even learned to airbend or being able to tap into the avatar state. 
In Korra’s first scene of book 2, she uses the Avatar state to boost her speed so she can beat the the kids in a race and Tenzin gets upset about it. 
So I think it makes sense that Korra would figure out a way to integrate the Avatar state into her bending to give her a boost when she needs it. 

I guess for me I think it comes down to that Korra is a lot more liberal with her use of the Avatar state where Aang was more reserved and only used it when necessary

Avatars running away…

So, we all know that Bolin is a cinnamon roll, but what about the rest of the avatar characters? What kind of dessert are they?

Zuko – Crème Brule. A hardened, burnt exterior that hides a sweet and slightly mushy soul beneath.

Aang – cotton candy. Our hero.

Katara – Lemon meringue. Sweet, tart, tough.

Toph – Granola. It’s had enough of your crap, twinkle toes.

Sokka – Banana Split. Trying way too hard. It’s the dessert equivalent of a punchline.

Suki – Brownies. They’re there because they have to be there and very little is really expected of them.

Azula – Halloween candy that secretly has razors and shards of glass in it.

Tai-Lee – Bubble tea. Sweet and bubbly, but lacking substance.

Mei – Baking chocolate. Bitter. Hasn’t even made the effort to become a proper dessert.

Iroh – Mulled wine. Complex, full bodied, gets better with age.

Korra – Protein bar. Aggressively good for you. Maybe a little too aggressively.

Asami – Tiramisu. Delicate, beautiful, sophisticated, quietly packing a shot of rum. Because you can’t be afraid to mix it up sometimes, you know?

Mako – Wonderbread. Contains neither flavor nor any particular emotional value.

Varrick – Chocolate-covered, smoke-infused, liquid-nitrogen-dipped chili pepper. It’s my latest invention!

Zhu Li – A meticulously optimized chocolate-chip cookie. Perfectly calibrated to maximize average enjoyment.

Tenzin – Breadsticks. But not until after dinner. One mustn’t spoil one’s appetite.

Pemma – A bun in the oven.

Lin – Jawbreaker. Just you try and eat one.

Ozai – Vanilla Ice Cream. Ice cold, kinda generic.

Amon – Peppermint patty. Chocolate, but with the cleansing power of mint.

Zaheer – Biscotti. Rigid, ascetic, kind of hurts when you eat it.

Kuvira – Government-issued dessert rations.

Korra can't make contact with the past Avatars any more but they're still in the Spirit World

Ok but what if Korra and Asami see Aang and he’s asking all about Tenzin and Kya and Bumi and Katara and Zuko and he gets really excited that they found Toph and he thinks it’s hilarious that she’s just been hiding in a swamp this whole time and he wants to know what his grandkids are like and he wants to know all about the new airbenders and about all the bison and about how Pema’s doing after having four bender kids and

Korra is as strong as Aang

I get Aang’s avatar state is so much more powerful but I think I know why.Aang by using his avatar states taps into the powers of all his previous lifes.He is using the exact same avatar state Yangchen uses and not necessarily his own strength.

Korra had her connection to her past lives severed but still,before that,she has demonstrated exceptional strength in the avatar state even without having a lot of time to master it.

Everything after book 2 is Korra and only Korra fighting.That’s why in book 4 she doesn’t use the avatar state so much.It wasn’t really worth it to constantly be in it so she just used it as a booster.

She is at least equal to Aang.In the finale having evolved a lot,she was precise,reading through Kuvira’s movements and redirecting them with particular ease.

What does the rest of the fandom think?

Avatar: The Last Airbender prequel set right after Aang runs away

if follows an airbender who had gone looking for Aang (maybe his sister idk) and Avatar Roku’s son since they’d be the same age. The genocide happens while she’s away and the story is about those two struggling to scramble for any airbenders hiding around the globe.

It ends with the Fire Nation wiping out the last airbenders that the two fought so hard to bring together, the dai li erasing everyones memories except for that airbender, she is imprisoned for life, left to pity in her failure, and the creation of the White Lotus.

Like Three Musketeers

I really wanted to draw some Toph after all this Toph-feelings there’s been lately.

Some how I ended up drawing her with Sokka and Aang and just began to think how hard it must’ve been for her after they died. Sure, she still had Katara, Zuko, her daughters and other friends, but even while in the Gaang I always got the hunch that Toph, Sokka and Aang sort of formed a little trio of their own.

I think Toph must’ve felt really lonely after “her boys” were gone for good, even if she wouldn’t show it  so openly.

Since it was requested a few times, I did a reprise of my original “Rebirth of a Nation” video and added Book 4 clips. I used the same music and some of the same clips but I tried to make it as different as I could.

Aang was the last airbender after the Air Nomad genocide. The Air Nation was on the brink of extinction until Harmonic Convergence brought it back.

Hey JaxBlade you said you meditate everyday and I was curious how you go about doing it. Everytime i try I stop after like 5 minutes cause i dont know what I'm supposed to be thinking of. and how does it help you? THanks if you answer this BIG FAN of your YouTube Channel

Oh sure and thats Great you want to start meditating. 

My Buddy @train-go

Has an amazing post on Meditation so be sure to check hers out 

MEDITATION 

But for me personally. I do kind of a zen focused Meditation for 20 minutes everyday in the morning. I started doing it a lot after I got into an arguement and hurt and lost a close friend of mine because I was just so depressed and angry for weeks. 

My mind became an inner cesspool of stress, anxiety, anger, sadness from an amalgamation of issues but I started doing Meditation seriously at first you think“this is some BS why the hell are Characters always doing it when training” But it only takes a few days to really notice the effects. 

I feel I have much better control over my emotions.
I’m more productive,
MY Temper is more controlled so i dont snap
I dont procrastinate as much as I used to,
I’m a lot more focused on my goals
and Also I feel more relaxed. 

The goal of meditation isnt to control your thoughts but let them stop controlling you in a negative way.

Okay so this is How I do it.
I either sit cross-legged on the floor or in a comfortable chair. Back straight, head up relaxed. Though I do like sitting like the Avatar to be honest

Then I close my eyes and I focus on my breath and nothing else. Now this is harder than it sounds cause your mind f*cks with you and some thoughts come and go and your mind is constantly a flutter but If i slip up and my mind starts to wander I just my attention back to the breath and breathe in 3 and breathe out. Now when first starting off this seems bogus but you have to stick with it and then you enter this peaceful tranquil state and then you dont even notice the time go by its just like you’re in another plain and everything becomes clear.
