I fail to see what relevence this hasq to the topic, other than YOU personally will not be playing Tera, which btw is not pertinent info either.


 




Oh wait, nevermind, I see what you did there, derailing the thread to instigate a "gw vs tera" war. Sneaky you are...





 


 


Totally agree, if you are looking forward to GW2 and you want to talk about it, it's totally fine. But why are you doing it in a post about Tera?

Kind of a duh, but the more I play my lancer, the more I fall for TERA’s combat.

 

Yeah, I'm a sucker for playing a class that feels "right" for me. I used to think I was a mage person until I started playing games where the "mage" character didn't feel right. Then I thought something had changed in me and I was a "melee" peson. Though that again changed in GW2 beta when I fell in love wiht the elementalist.

But on topic, I LOVE the lancer. Love it. Just like I loved my swordmaster in Warhammer, the lancer feels right for me. From my first block where you can see the character brace the legs, slightly bowed, shield held high and lance jutting forward like a challenge, to when the character does a lung and the entire character sprtings forth like a beatiful line, I just love playing the character.

But you know? I have seen and tried most of the classes and each one has that "thing" that hooks you.

From the huge world to the BAMS which are fun but exhausting to fight, the entire game is just fun.

and I really love that parties can sprting up at the drop of a hat. Yesterday I was doing quests and went over a ridge so I could go down to a beach (trying to find my way back to turn some in) when I literally smacked rigth into a crab giong the other way. I decided to fight it (solo) and after about 2 hours had fought many of them because players were traveling over the ridge and asking to join, dropping party after they were done or helping for "1 or 2 more" and a chunk of my evening was spent on that ridge just tanking these things.

And yes, lancers can die. I was in the Labyrinth when I saw that a guild mate was looking for some help. I was fighting some BAMS down there so though "well, I'll hold my shield up and try to reply while typing with my left hand". That wasn't bright.

So not being bright makes you die.

Also, a slight bit of lag or just one mistep can roll you, shake your confidence and you have to fight to recover.

But that's what I love about Tera. I can fight a monster or player and possbily make a mistake and not have it be an insta kill.

I can accidentlally get mobbed by 3 groups of mobs and their minions and even though I'm at 5 hp recover and win if I'm patient and skilled.

Heck, I killed Johnnyh Depp solo because I was juxst determined enough.

er, Johnny Depp is the Prince in Sinestral Manor.

I just love this game. And even though that seem gushing and I DO have complaints (though none that would be shared by many of the players today, my complaints would want the game slightly more hard core for my tastes) it's refreshing to play something that I WANT to play, not something where I'm trying it out and biding my time until something better comes along.

I've surprised myself and am enjoying this one (at least through first 12 levels... I'm a slow leveler and precious RL time to play some weeks).




My 2nd unexpected hiccup was last night finishing the Dark Revelation quest. Being a Lancer and going in solo against Karascha I didn't realize you need to score 51%+ dmg or no quest kill acknowldegement (thanks to Old Timers Guild(ies) for heads up). Then it wasn't obvious how to reset the quest until I hit Tera support FAQ. Reset, went in using no blocks and score, LOL. Not aggrevaited... just unexpected.




Otherwise... enjoying!

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

GW2 is many things, but polished certainty isn't one of them. Quit trolling. TERA is polished and I'm having a great time with it. GW2 will have its day, but today.belongs to TERA!!! :)

F2p games are definatly really good quality nowadays.

Except GW2 isnt free to play,  you have to buy it.     Then you'll have to buy additonal DLC.   Sorry but if money is your issue then your already being ripped off, in my view.     There isnt even a release date and you already have to buy the whole product upfront just to get into the beta.

 

Having no cash shop in a new MMO like Tera is going to be a bit of a releif,  while I dont mind cashshops for ailing MMO's Im a bit sick of cash shops tbh,   I'd rather just pay the sub and get everything.

Tera is a fun game and a polished one. Combat, as othes have said, is amazing.


Those seeking in Tera only PvE content, will get bored pretty fast. Note that all the comments here talk about boring questing and grind.


The true potential in Tera is the PvP. The political system, the open world pvp, no factions, the guild wars and battlegrounds later on.


Those who enjoyed L2 drama back in the day might understand what I am talking about.

The strong are sometimes wrong but the weak are never free.

The thing about TERA is that it is simply fun and great looking. I enjoy the combat, so much so that I often kill more of the mobs than the quest requires. If there was any grinding it would be fun because the combat is fun. The characters, gear, environments, mobs and architecture looks stunning. 




Will it last? I dunno. There are max level instances, politics, nexii and someday server vs server so hopefully it will keep a person entertained. But even if it doesn't you can enjoy TERA like a summer fling over seas with a stunning and fun woman that you just met. It might not last but you can enjoy the here and now for what it is.

While I'm not going to be playing TERA, it does have great graphics and combat and I do hope that those who purchased it, have a good time.

SWTOR is still a piece of crap in term of performance (Loading screens everywhere, low FPS).


Let's see if GW2 will fix it before the launch.  But I can tell you that GW2 has less loading screens... a way less.


emm are we on a Tera comments?

I played the beta for a few days and I saw absolutely nothing that intrigued me. The combat was OK, but Raiderz has similar combat and it is F2P.

 Guild Wars had almost as many performance issues and bugs than SWTOR did in beta.  It is FAR FAR FAR from being polished, SO very far.  I know its a beta.  But it was an unoptimized engine, overflow was upsetting people, story quests were at times bugged, major survivability issues between melee/ranged and this was publically ackknowledged by Jon Peters.  The game is SO far from being polished.  That said, it has great potential and I am still excited for it.  Way less excited than previously, but still looking forward to it.


In terms of Betas/Launches that I have participated in and their respective "smoothness", I rank:


1. Tera - Ive seen no problems...at all.  None.


2. Cataclysm


3. WOTLK


4. Burning Crusade


5. SWTOR


6. Guildwars 2


7. Aion


8. Warhammer



 


whoa what are you smoking. you forget tera has been out for a year or so? Anyhow that is not the point I am responding. For me its your 2nd choice Cata. On release Cata has Loads of bugs, many were grafical and it took them months to fix the stone drake mounts and other things. Wrath was waaay smoother than cata by far. prob because it did not have a grafical upgrade till the end before cata was finally released.

Thanks,

Well, essentially for me, it kind of feels like Lineage 2 "lite'.

this is not to say there aren't issues. I had no problems wiht the start but I can easily see people getting fed up with being a ranged class and holding down one button with your forefinger to attack.

I think the players who are looking for a slightly more old school game and are willing to get into the 20+ region will eventually see a more exciting type of game play. And if you are on the pvp server you have that added excitement. I am currently trying to balance two characters, one on pve server and one on pvp. But one only has so much time.

The game is old school though. at least the feel of it. I don't mind kill X quests because I like combat. I'd rather kill mobs than craft. But if people are just looking for something different in how the game is put together they aren't going to find it here. Oh sure, the BAMS feel like Monster hunter "looks" (I've never played it just watched videos) and can be very fun. And the combat feels right. That coupled with players runnign around and doing things together (even though one can easily solo quest) it just feels fun.

I don't mind the art design and love it in certain areas. I take certain things with a grain of salt. I love the Eldritch Academy because it's fun in a very silly way. Sort of looks like a "halloween haunted castle".

but one must have a cheeky sense of humor and not be very cynical or else it will all feel too much.

This game has me hooked.  I can't stress enough how impressive the game world looks.  At level 32, I finally got to go to Mistmoor Island and Ostragath (think that's spelled right) last night and WOW....talk about impressive!  The Pirate's Grotto is so cool looking.  


I also got to do somthing last night I haven't done in an MMO in ages...an open world dungeon.  We went into the Labyrinth last night and had a blast.  The place is HUGE, too.  Bigger than many instanced dungeons in other games.  Took us about an hour and a half to get through it, and we wiped a few times on Tabruk, who is a pain in the ass.  


I haven't had that much fun in an MMO in a very long time.

I didn't find Guild Wars 2 be all polished, did you play a different game maybe (it is a closed beta after all)? Also GW2 isn't really that revolutionary. The dynamic events felt just like they did to me in Warhammer Online and adding a requirement to the dodging system is kind of lame. I don’t know why people are saying that Guild Wars 2 doesn’t really have grind, because the dynamic events basically is a grind in itself, basically they tell you to kill a bunch of things here and there, gather things and bring them to a npc, escort missions, etc nothing ground breaking. Tera is a fun game to play and paying a monthly sub fee guaranties that I will get regular content added to the game overtime, which is something I am not hoping to get from GW2. GW2 hopes to make money from their cash shop (don't say the cash shop is useless), they wouldn't have spent all that time on a cash shop if there was no benefit for them (it comes down to money for any business). Now on to Tera, have you tried to solo a BAM? If you have you will see how exciting that feeling is. Tera has a magnitude of innovative content like their combat system (which is superior to guild wars 2's implementation). It the enchanting system is pretty cool, having the ability to acquire materials for your professions together with your group members is really cool, and also what matters the most at least to me, Enmasse has one of the best support staff I have ever seen, which is something I can't really say about ArenaNet.

As good as TERA looks, after playing my first GW2 beta event, I can't justify paying $15 per month to play anything now. Seeing such a highly polished game, without a subscription fee, has spoiled me for good, so I'll revisit this game once it goes free2play.










 








Have fun with gates wars 2 ...oups sry imo i mean wahrammer 2








tera is  worth the money so far




best combat system an mmo can offer so far




best PVP and yes tera pvp makes gates wars2 pathetic




better graphics than gw2




better animations than gw2




HUGE world and alive (unlike again gw2) and wich btw is x1.5 bigger than wow vanilla




political system




Mounts yep thats right even the little things count but i guess gw2 is sooooo small world and every dam thing is instanced that u dont need a mount---->boring




Crafting is good


no more RNG


no grind

   Yea there is something about Tera that hooks you in, and I am someone who likes good story and quests, but even though Tera really does not have that it is like an old junk yard dog with fleas that you shoo away but it keeps licking you so you bring it home and the dern thing grows on you. I am still partial to swtor but Tera is a nice change of pace

Unlike some gamers, I actually am glad to see female characters riding side-saddle. Its not surprising that some dont like it because they are not used to seeing it. But it would do some good if people did a little research into the era when side-saddle was more common in RL. Women were more feminine back then and I think it adds great contrast to their being less than modest with appearances.




Which brings me to another topic of similar nature which is that many gamers seem to be overlooking when they are complaining about appearances in the game. The backstory of Tera is that it is the dream of two gods and I don't remember too many novels or movies involving dreams that can be realistically compared to RL. 



?  Right, riding side saddle while you are suited up for fighting.  The only reason women rode side saddle is because of the skirts they wore.  You jump a horse riding side saddle and you have one sore backside.  Completely impractical way to ride a horse.  True it is a game and who cares how they ride in a game.


 


To those playing have a great time, but remember all those SWTOR people who were gushing about the game, they are pretty bored now. TERA has even less end game content than SWTOR. 


 



 


I stoped reading there


Tera has way more content than swtor


Play the fcking game before talking trashes


i have a K account and the endgame is fine and now with queen of argon things gets WAY better.
