OP  4/20/12 3:20:21 PM#1

Gah, I'm the biggest MMO game hopper ever, and I've played them all (SEED anyone?, Ryzom, everything). i can't stay with a game more than a few weeks, but I've been playing TERA beta since CBT1 and I really think it has hooked me for the first time in a persistent way. OBT is even more difficult and fast-paced than I remember, and it's invigorating picking up the new slayer playstyle as opposed to my archer.  And the game just gets more intense and exciting as you play even farther (highest level was 30).

The game atmosphere is just so gorgeous and vibrant. The way you characters move makes them seem truly alive and badass when they are taking an enemy three times their size. This game is great and doesn't get boring even after weeks of not playing. If the company can keep coming up with new content, I think they have a long-lasting classic on their hands.

 

I pre-purchased GW2 as well because I plan on playing both (I know, your mind is blown). No reason not to have one p2p game and one f2p game, especially when they really are very different. Not sure about D3...not too happy about the auction house thing and it just doesn't seem very fresh. 

 

I urge everyone to at least try this game during Open Beta weekend. Most of you--I'm sure--won't regret it.

 

P.S. play your favorite exercise/techno/pop music while you play. Linkin Park + TERA = AMAZING.

I would like to know how you or anyone can fathom the god awful UI?FFXIV took a ton of heat for this exact same problem.This game needs MUCH more than just aiming for the mouse and i cannot stand using WASD.Arrows work but no way i'm hitting any F keys from there.

Last i checked i only have two hands,one on keyboard for movement ,other for mouse,how am i to hit F keys?Stop moving is the only way.

I uninstalled the game after on 15 minutes i saw too many things early on that won't go well with me.The graphics reminded me of the current trend of cheap,one great big blue hue of color.All i saw was nothing to fight just a pile of players scurring about brandishing their skills for no reason other than they can lol.The start area was overwhelmingly crowded and the game uses total block,so if 20 players surround you cannot move and the camera does not move well to allow you a good viewpoint.

I just could not imagine me playing with that poor UI,so i didn't even bother to see if the game offers anything aside from the obvious questing and pvp.The item imbuing or whatever it was called seemed to much like the korean type gaming +1..+2 ..+3 ect   ect.

Bottom line is it looks too much like same old and i would not enjoy pvp with that awful targetting needing 3 hands idea.

Seriously how can you not hit the F key while moving? Q,E,R,F,C,V,Z have been hotkeys for me since I first started raiding in WoW years and years ago. Everything around your movement keys makes for extremely easy key binding abilities even while moving, unless you somehow need 4 fingers on 3 movement keys all at the same time...

So you dont use W,A,S,D as a computer gamer....you know they have controller support if by some chance you are not a computer gamer, all MMO's use W,A,S,D. well maybe not ALL but near 90% at least.

This made me lol. You sir must not have much MMO experience.  And poor UI? You can customize EVERYTHING, from release.. They are already further ahead than SW:TOR that has been out for how long now? Just goes to show this game does take some kind of intelligence and MMO knowledge to play.

hmmm, well I love the interfact but then again I use a razer naga and pretty much have all the buttons right there. Having said that, many skills are part of chain skills and those can be accessed with the space bar.

I believe you can remap the keys. I know in many instances you can.

No idea why anyone would gripe about keyboard controls when you can remap everything... I don't use the F Keys, I changed them to Shift+1/2/3/4/5/6 etc..

I guess his 15 minutes were not long enough for him to figure out that he could have rebinded those keys.  Seriously the UI is clean, minimual, and just fine like it is....except maybe resizing the chat Font  :p

In Tera most combat animations require you to stop moving, so there isn't a problem. (and for the rest of us, there's the Razer Naga)

Different style of combat that many people can't get used to.

I was playing it until it just crashed. Gonna go back in and try and give it its fair due, but so far I'm not enjoying it.

1) Visually (and I know this is subjective) it looks like Aion, which is not a plus to me. Don't get me wrong, the game is beautiful, it's more the art style I'm talking about.

2) The questing is standard MMO fair except you have to go back and kill the same mobs multiple times for different quests. I'm hoping this changes.

3) IDK what I was expecting, but the combat doesn't do much for me (yet). Sure, I have no tab target, fine. But what I do have is being rooted for every attack that I make.

Again, I'm really early in the beta, it's my first time playing, and I'm trying to reserve judgment.

I honestly had the same issue with the stop action movement for a bit, until I started thinking about what it would be like if it was free form movement. It would be a lot easier to kill mobs, and tactics would matter less. I appreciate the skill requirement it has.

Setting up an account: 5 minutes

Downloading the game: 2 hours, 10 minutes, 35 seconds

Creating a character: 7 minutes

Playing a game for 15 minutes but spending the same amount of time ranting about it on a forum? Priceless

Made for the laughs but c'mon Wizardry. I've seen you around this site for years, you know how to work MMOs my friend. If TERA is indeed a tough gig to work then maybe it's not as typical as you say.

You know you could have come to these forums to ask questions but instead you post that? It seems like you have an agenda but maybe TERA just isn't your thing. Sorry you didn't like it.

Just not worth my time anymore.

Here, Here! I applaud your excitement. I just hit Level 12 and playing a Priest. Haven't grouped much so cannot comment on the healers abilities in a group. I may try a melee class as I still have till Monday to decide what's best. Yesterday, the perorders were playing and today the free open betas came on board., major difference in attitude. General chat was a little more aggrevated then yesterday. However, there is a health population online and hopefully they will get passed the Island starting area and see how cool this game really is. What a sleeper game, never expected it.

Play style seems fine.  It is the art choices for some of the races that I can not get into.  I am not that hugh of a fan of the fantasy anime art style.  Other than that part seems fine enough.

For those watching at home the UI is very basic and minimalistic. The good thing is that you can scale and move all the pieces around individually. If you watch a handful of YouTube videos you can see many different configurations.

Aside from modifying the keybindings you can also make your own "chains" with your skills. There are some chains already programmed by default such as Warrior: Rain of Blows > Roll > AoE. When you do one skill the next in your chain is shown and can be activated by the spacebar. You are allowed to set up your own chains in case you have a preferred sequence you use a lot.

A multi button mouse is recommended for most people. Since your mouse is freely aiming you can't use it to click skills, those have to be done by keybindings. You're moving with WASD however so doing both simultaneously might be tricky since free movement is very important. You can use autorun to help take the burdon off your key hand since there is full collision but your milage may vary depending on how comfortable that is.

I would love to have a G700 or Naga but currently I have a seven button generic Logitec keyboard/mouse.

Just not worth my time anymore.

i love the game so far but i see how someone without a gaming mouse would have serious problems.

 

i have a gaming mouse (naga) and i have no issues with it.  if i didnt have one i'd either play on a controller or else bite the bullet and grab a gamng mouse.

I only played for couple hours today, but for some reason I have the same feeling I had with Aion and SWTOR. Blah. I'll try again tomorrow.

For those watching at home the UI is very basic and minimalistic. The good thing is that you can scale and move all the pieces around individually. If you watch a handful of YouTube videos you can see many different configurations.

Aside from modifying the keybindings you can also make your own "chains" with your skills. There are some chains already programmed by default such as Warrior: Rain of Blows > Roll > AoE. When you do one skill the next in your chain is shown and can be activated by the spacebar. You are allowed to set up your own chains in case you have a preferred sequence you use a lot.

A multi button mouse is recommended for most people. Since your mouse is freely aiming you can't use it to click skills, those have to be done by keybindings. You're moving with WASD however so doing both simultaneously might be tricky since free movement is very important. You can use autorun to help take the burdon off your key hand since there is full collision but your milage may vary depending on how comfortable that is.

I would love to have a G700 or Naga but currently I have a seven button generic Logitec keyboard/mouse.

thanks for the tip on chains, never knew that. 

No problem.  I have not played with the chains myself but here is a video where two sorcs are discussing how get a better rotation going (some expletives):

Just not worth my time anymore.
