From what I read, Chronoscrolls are placed in your character's inventory so you would have to already have access to the game.  Furthermore, I read that Chronoscrolls are a way to "extend" game time.  You must already have game time in order to extend it I would think, so I think the answer to your question is NO at least for the time being.  Maybe they'll change it.

I couldn't get into it, some of the classes look like final fantasy knock offs. starting zone was unimpressive, typical themepark. Not my cup of tea. To all saying give the game a chance, I did, why should you have to level to 10 or 20 to get off a starter island to enjoy the game, not an excuse. Everyone keeps saying the game picks up at level 20, IMO a game should pickup when you double click the icon on your desktop.

Well considering WoW does not pick up until 85 and soon to be 90 as MoP questing looks just as boring as ever, Id say its safe to say most gamers know judging MMOs based on early experiences is not the best idea, this goes both ways, AoC and SW:TOR start off good and then...well you know.

 

Just my opinion obviously, but MMOs are interesting beasts and judging them off a few hours of gameplay never turns out well.

Yup. aoc has some of my favourite art in a game but technically speaking tera's graphics seem better than aoc, ie textures and model quality. but the art style is complete wank. of course its down to your own opinion, tera art style reminds me of WoW. its cartoony/asian/bright/cutsie/kiddy whereas aoc is more realistic, gritty and mature (<3).

 This totally depends where you go, unlike most MMOs, TERA has a lot of variety in zones which is a very very very welcomed change from an entire world following the same theme everywhere.

 

Skyrim is a prime example that made me disgusted after a while, it is a breath of fresh air to explore and have the environments change significantly depending where you go.

Thanks mCalvert for the review, that's a fair description of the game. I also lean more toward the sandbox side than themepark. Problem is there isn't any good fantasy ones out there that are 3d.

I think TERA is the first quality MMO in a long time to mix themepark progression, lots of group content and actual exploration. You don't see this until 20-25 unfortunately but I don't need to see the whole game in the first week I Play it. I think we've become a bit spoiled. When you turn level 20 take a look at how much ground you've seen and then imagine a lot of what's left is open space with BAMs to fight. Yummy.

Since last CBT I have tested a new questing technique where I only do the main story quests (red icons) and hunt for xp until the next step becomes available. I'll be posting about it but I've been procrastinating lol. The technique has worked great so far as I've been looking for more of an EQ style progression.

As far as the term "typical themepark" that's a cop out IMO. Take an game and you could day that without taking it's special traits in mind. Almost any game you could say that about. The line for me is open exploration and progression options. TERA has both.

Just not worth my time anymore.

I couldn't disagree more. exploration in skyrim is unparreled due to depth and gameplay. having a different biome every few steps does not make exploration as fun as in skyrim, it does not add depth just a mere change of scenery. infact having it all set in one biome is part of what makes skyrim a believable and immersive land that I want to explore. it would be utterly shallow if the climate changed drastically after a walk.

and back on topic I've only played to max lvl 23 but there is barely any variety so far anyway, although I'm sure there will be more later. but a KEY thing is tera has only ONE starting area and set of quests for EVERY class/race. this means the game essentially has ZERO variety everytime you make a new character. unlike swtor I recently trialed which has 4 different  and pretty unique starting planets/areas.

I've been doing that for the last two betas as well - and I'm much richer for it. Thanks to the quests giving lots of XP, but not all that much gold, fast levellers also tend to be poorer for the speed. Whereas the people who get their XP almost entirely from monsters have more gold and items to use as they see fit.

A Modest Proposal for MMORPGs:
That the means of progression would not be mutually exclusive from the means of enjoyment.

Well, like i said, this is more about my preferences than anything. Im tired of fantasy and never enjoyed my little pony MMOs (talking frogs). Im an adult, and this kind of anime is cartoonish. Im a mass murderer after all and this was a western audience.

As for story, if you are going to force me to run 1000 quests, I want it to be GREAT. This is an RPG, not a action game, thus story should be as important as gameplay. MMOs like Darkfall or Planetside, or solo action games like Battlefield dont need a story at all.


Oic, you are an adult.  So why are you playing games anyway?  Don't you know that games are for kids?

i did all quest with my friend never seem to have trouble with money, than again i don't use any money lvl =X Well i do lvl purely off dungeon as soon as i can do them which is probably why because the skills in there give good amount of money =D

The cutesy graphics are not all throughout the game, watch some dungeon videos and towards the end areas where the land is being taken over Borg style by the Argon.

I also think the areas 1-20 are not that great. It's too closed in and as was mentioned, the only place to start out. The only positive thing about it is there is that much more world real-estate to explore as you progress. Let's be honest, one night to get 1-10 and one or two more for 11-20 tops. I hear the leveling curve sharpens a bit but at that point you are "out of the woods" and you get a few options of exploration.

Just not worth my time anymore.

OP,

You might try limiting yourself to the story quests. You get the "whole story" without it having it deluted by the side quests.

I get that BHS was trying to give people an all quest route but there are just too many quests. Some people might like that but I'd rather they take 3/4 of the side quests away and put in longer epic quests to break up the main story, smaller parallel ones. Green icons maybe?

Just not worth my time anymore.

Since you didn't bother to give a reason I think your either lying or didn't do much research before going to all that trouble.

 Too me, their opinion just became invalid.. Of course if they give a reason then it wouldn't be invalid. I know I can be harsh..

No idea what you are talking about, I said "looks like" visually, not "plays like" .  Seems you are  the " defender of Tera", calm down, people have the right to opinions, no one is like OMG TERA SUXOR! Some are just saying they didn't care for it, no need to call everyone out in this thread who didnt like it. Seems like you want a 2 page explaination of why people didn't like it, sorry we didn't get as deep into the game as you did, maybe I should get in the next beta and play for 30 more hours so I can be more descriptive for you.

Honestly, I've learned to give a game a chance long enough before giving it a rating.I agree that a game should pickup right when you double click on the desktop. But unfortunately, games aren't like books we read or tv shows or movies we watch. So whether they captivate us for the first 10-20 levels or vice versa.. it never really plays out like we want. I think the best game would be one that starts you off in suspense and keeps you in suspense. Then ends with a bang.
