I can't think of a western MMO looking better then TERA. Maybe Guild Wars 1 and now Guild Wars 2 has the best art style, but that's also influenced by the east. So...

No... and no.  Couple of things that just really annoyed me about this game.

 

1. Barely any UI customization

2. Annoying aiming crosshair in the middle of the screen

3. IT IS NOT A TRUE ACTION MMO... you can dodge attacks but you can not cancel or cast spells on the run.

4. Forced to use wsad, and number pads.  While I use both I sometimes need to rest my hands so using the point and click is not available.

5. Very little skills, sure you can glyph them but they are not impressive to look at and its the same spell.

6. Linear not really open like other games where you can fly around and go anywhere your stuck on the ground and its go to point A to point B...

7. Middle screen announcements every freaking 2-3 minutes about "Player x gathered x items/herbs/etc..."

8. You have the option of using a game controller... I am old school I have a pc for a reason using keyboard is 100000x;s better than limiting yourself to a game controller...

 

Only two reasons to buy the  game 1. That beautiful lion mount if u go collector's or 2.... wait yeah nvm mind that just one reason.

In anycase Diablo 3, GW2 and Aion are currently taking up my gaming world.  Besides League of Legends... Tera WILL GO F2P and btw in ASIA the game is doing horrible. 

 

P.S The game is beautiful but looks aren't everything...

1. The UI is set up to work with the game very well, i do not see a purpose to fuck with it at this point.

2. They have crosshairs because you actually have to aim...

3. It is the best action mmo i have played in a while, you aim, you run, you dodge. Idk what more you want.

4. You can use a controller, also you kind need to use movement keys in an action mmo, it is not tab target point nclick style.

5. There are plenty of skills, most games the more skills you get the less you use, i know on my archer who is only lvl 13 i use every one of my 6 skills right now.

6. IDK much about this only lvl 13, but it seems like you can do what you want, if by questing you mean it is linear, yes that is true, but it never claimed to be a sandbox. 

7. I do not have those annoucnments as much as you are claiming to see them.

8. You were just complaining about the keyboard and now about the controller, make up your mind.

the entire UI was customizable, you can move them anywhere and scale them to any size you please.

2. Annoying aiming crosshair in the middle of the screen

Duh else you going to aim?

3. IT IS NOT A TRUE ACTION MMO... you can dodge attacks but you can not cancel or cast spells on the run.

not even going to explains this again but you don't know wtf action combat is

4. Forced to use wsad, and number pads.  While I use both I sometimes need to rest my hands so using the point and click is not available.

again action combat holy shit

5. Very little skills, sure you can glyph them but they are not impressive to look at and its the same spell.

the point is to adjust them to your liking but everyone has the same skill so its more skilled based rather than build based.

6. Linear not really open like other games where you can fly around and go anywhere your stuck on the ground and its go to point A to point B...

ya flying sucks, it kills any sense of exploration

7. Middle screen announcements every freaking 2-3 minutes about "Player x gathered x items/herbs/etc..."

call turning off annoucement in setting

8. You have the option of using a game controller... I am old school I have a pc for a reason using keyboard is 100000x;s better than limiting yourself to a game controller...

why its called a fucking option, no one telling you to use it.

Only two reasons to buy the  game 1. That beautiful lion mount if u go collector's or 2.... wait yeah nvm mind that just one reason.

In anycase Diablo 3, GW2 and Aion are currently taking up my gaming world.  Besides League of Legends... Tera WILL GO F2P and btw in ASIA the game is doing horrible. 

 also 5th most played mmorpg and 9th most play mmo in Korea

P.S The game is beautiful but looks aren't everything...

I played GW2 beta and Tera for me looks and plays so much better.


This doesn't make sense. TOR is much more alive and is less restricting than Tera. Even the background environment is better. In Tera it feels like the clouds are only 200 feet away and there are a lot of invisible walls.

 

Above poster has some issues(complex questing and open world). Some listed in orange are things Tera doesn't have and are reason why not do buy it because it isn't there.

how can one compare star wars to tera is beyond me.

but what comes buying tera or not id suggestd to wait week or two after launch and think again if you still want it.

so experience what comes from the beginning of mmos i myself are not gona buy it. played the beta and yes it does get better after 15 - 20 or so but its just question of opinions and likes and what nots. crosshair stuck to mid screen is not really 

that revolutionary combat that id expected but hey each of their own.

aswell there is nothing bad to be hypehype and pre order if you really want to. 

 

for me its a skippie dippie and eyes for secret world maybe it fails to bring me anything new either but thats how it goes.

 

cheers

1. Barely any UI customization

You cant use mods but the UI has great base customization. I mean you can move around anything on the screen add extra hot bars, the bars can be rebound and moved, Map, Radar, Player frames, Target, Your health everything is moveable in the base Ui. Bascially all the crap you normally need mods for you dont. I dont know what else you want.

2. Annoying aiming crosshair in the middle of the screen

The crosshair is there to aim spells so you have an idea where you are firing. When was the last time you played an FPS with no cross hair? You arent going to hit anything if you dont know were you are shooting or were to aim.

3. IT IS NOT A TRUE ACTION MMO... you can dodge attacks but you can not cancel or cast spells on the run

You can cancel spells up to a certain point. Spells that have cast time and stuff can be canceled. Skills that are instant arent canceled because they use the animation locking as a sort of built in cast time and it roots you until animation is finished. This decreases as you level up and its not a big issue.

4. Forced to use wsad, and number pads. While I use both I sometimes need to rest my hands so using the point and click is not available.

You cant hold both mouse buttons to move like you can in wow but there is noting that stops you from binding your movement keys or a second set of movement keys to another button. I mean bind an extra mouse button to move foward if you just want to move foward without touching the keyboard.

5. Very little skills, sure you can glyph them but they are not impressive to look at and its the same spell.

I have no idea what class you tried but every class has a ton of skills most classes have like 20-30 unique skills maybe even more I would have to count all the classes to get exact number but if you go to website you can see the list. They are great and the combat animations look really good.  There are plenty of skills for easy class and they look different. If you didnt think there was enough skills you must have been really low level.

6. Linear not really open like other games where you can fly around and go anywhere your stuck on the ground and its go to point A to point B...

There are lots of places to go and explore and you arent forced to go from point A to B. The game has quest hubs which are designed to go from one spot to another but you can travel whever you want and can just kill mobs for xp. In fact the BAMS give as much in a full group as a quest does so you could do nothing but farm them to level. Also there is no flying mounts which is great because flying mounts ruin exploration. The game is only Linear if you force that on yourself.

7. Middle screen announcements every freaking 2-3 minutes about "Player x gathered x items/herbs/etc..."

They have announcements are for poeple that enchant an item to +6 or above and its only poeple in that area that see it. Thats it for annoucements. There are no annoucements for gathering or item received etc. The annoucements arent server wide just area based so I dont see what the issue is. So you happen to be in an area and see some dude enchant an item big deal.....

8. You have the option of using a game controller... I am old school I have a pc for a reason using keyboard is 100000x;s better than limiting yourself to a game controller...

There is nothing wrong with having the option of using a game controller. I personally would never use one as you said using a keyboard and mouse is 100 times better espically in an mmo were you will be typing etc. But if poeple want to do a dungeon or whatever with a controller as long as they dont suck it doesnt bother me.

Your complaint list is very long and very inaccurate. Most of what you complained about shows me you didnt play the game much probably never even left the newbie island. I wont say this is the best game ever but its not nearly as bad as you seem to want poeple to think.

BOTTOM LINE? The game is Fun. Combat is what really makes the game stand out.  It's almost like D3 combat to be honest imo anyway.  I have been playing with my xbox controller and aside from it being a tad bit slower compared to using a mouse for turning around it fits well. I am playing as a priest and am having a good time. This is a great start and as long as it gets the support it will turn into one of the best mmo expereinces i have ever had.  I can't stress enough how fun I find the combat. 

 

If your system can run the game at max settings its absolutely stunning. I won't forget landing on the "noob" island and seeing a huge line of towering waterfalls with wrecked ships atop them in the background. It's so pretty!

Well after playing this weekend i must say i did enjoy it as it was so much of a change of pace from the other MMo,s i have played over the years.  I did like that you cannot just stand there and fire away at things and live.  You have to think alot about what you are doing before you charge in.  I like that idea .  I am looking forward to trying other toons as i have only made a priest atm.  Does take awhile to get the hang of doing things as we are so use to the Wow type games but once you do i think you will enjoy the game play.

Must say I havent felt this world epicness in a while, I knew I enjoyed TERA when I played the beta, but its really good, already started some GvG wars and really enjoying the combat, I am glad I didnt overplay the beta, it still feels very fresh to me.

On a side note, the ability to try any class with mid levels abilities at the start its absolutely genius :D

buy, in my opinion.

 

i know this.  I know that on sunday I played long enough to have the game warn me that i've been playing for 4 hours and should take a break.  and I know that  i have not been able to bring myself to play ANY mmo for 4 hours straight since the early days of wrath of the lich king. 

 

I have not felt so immersed in a very long time.

I actually deleted WoW off my system after years of keeping it on, because I always went back after I quit.  I love being able to to do any crafting I please without having to pick just 2. 

The animations are amazing and the MOBs ae very detailed.  I am having a blast and I normally dont play that much.

Found a video that cracked me up....so true

I spent probably about 20 hours or so this weekend on TERA (got a buddy key) and the only time I really enjoyed the game was when I was soloing/2-manning BAMs with my berserker friend.

The combat mechanics don't shine at all if you're in a group with a lancer and healer, as it pretty much just turns into your standard MMO tank & spank with gimmicks.     The quests are terrible (and there's way too many of them) and the zones are way too corridor like.   There's also not a lot to do besides combat.

Soloing BAMs is fun, but not really worth the subscription fee for me.

Edit:  I think I'd like the game a lot more if they replaced all normal monsters in the game with BAMs and mini BAMs (smaller size, hits for less, has less hp).

I honestly haven't had this much fun in a MMO in ages. I look forward to grouping, I take on challenges that make me want to punch my screen when I fail and am finding myself getting involved in a community. 

 

I haven't wanted to do that to this extent since my UO days.

Uh-huh. The challenge is def there and the social aspects are pretty good. OP should buy the game already.

I already pre-purchased the DDE of GW2 and played in the first BWE. It was pretty fun, but I want to give Tera a shot as well. I am going to pick up the DCE later today.

Was looking at the replies at the previous post I posted.  It's interesting how people like to sugar coat things or defend their purchase.  The bottom line, your going to regret purchasing it.  I really do hope this thread stays alive as I give Tera 2 months and I am being generous from becoming a f2p. 

Who pays a sub for games these days unless its a western game?  The game is boring...  it brings  nothing new.  If you want a action game play a fp shooter etc...

The fanbois, bias gamers and everything in between will defend this game until tommorrow...  Trust me the game can not compete with GW2, world of warcraft or Diablo 3.. People have to be delusional or on some form of substance to think this game is any good.

The game is eccentric and annoying... I digress... If the game is all that amazing why are the one on a forum defending it... wouldnt you think an amazing game would have little or no comments because everyone is busy playing it? 

Just look at the forums and judge for yourself... Tera is a horrible eastern game... It encompasses everything westerners hate about eastern mmorpgs...

lol

is this your first time on the forum?

 

you mean you didn't notice all the fanboys defending GW2?  RIFT?  WOW?  SWTOR?  and all the other games?  so you're saying NO game is worth playing then right? 

 

 

The End
---------------------------
i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

Your point was so valid you had to use an alt account? TERA is bad because it's eastern? Lol, you sir have made me smile this morning snd seeing as it's Monday the thanks is two fold.

I have to give you some respect for even typing what you did in a public place. I hope you are sincerely trolling.

Just not worth my time anymore.
