A common response is why play an MMO if you dont want to group. I shouldn't have to.

In short , to level, you need to do quests. To do the best xp quests you need a full group.

I have not logged in since ...

 

Stop the presses,  a mmorpg gives the most xps quests to group quests - shocking.

When did this become not the way mmorpg's play ?

And you dont have to group , you can easily skip those as soon as you hit a certain level it auto unlocks the next series of quests for your storyline. You can go back and do it or not , as you can easily buy better gear off the broker than you get from those to begin with.

There is nothing wrong with an MMO requiring grouping past a certain level, for those who are fine with forced grouping. If a game does basically force grouping, however, then that fact should be widely circulated to prevent people who don't care for forced grouping from wasting their time and money on the game.

No one need question what people like from an MMO, everyone is different. There shouldn't be any problem with people sharing a gripe that is a.)accurate and b.) may be of significant importance to some players looking into the game.

I'm glad I got bored with the game after the second beta weekend and canceled my pre-order. I didn't know there was forced grouping and I would have been ticked off if I had bought it, only to find out later.

I never really saw any mention of the game forcing grouping before endgame in the pros/cons pre-release. This is one of those things that can be a pro or a con, depending on one's tastes, but everyone has a right to know that the game does have a lot of content that is difficult, or even impossible, to solo.

Now, if someone has found that certain classes and determined play can allow someone to solo, that's valid information as well. Maybe some people are fine with having to really work at soloing, as long as it's possible. However, most MMOs today are solo friendly and I don't see how any one would be shocked that many people do indeed expect an MMO to be solo friendly. That doesn't mean a game can't reward grouping, or that someone who likes to be able to solo doesn't also sometimes enjoy grouping.

There are things to like about TERA and things not to like. Whether one finds it a positive or a negative, it is useful to know before buying the game that most content beyond a certain point is designed to require a group, or at least a duo. The game is better served if people who start playing it know what they are in for. Fewer people dropping from friends lists and guild rosters when people who buy the game really uderstand what they are getting.

There is no forced grouping...BUT you DO need a group for group content, crazy, eh?

Also, there are group quests well before storyline group quests.

On a side note, I happen to agree with the OP in the case of story quests because sometimes you cannot advance to the next story quest unless you complete the prior. I have had no problem completing them, but the grouping mechanims in the game are...meh. I like grouping, but how long it takes to get a group is really starting to wear thin on me.

Why create a group oriented game and not create a better toolset for said grouping functions?

I don't understand. So u play mmo (massively multiplayer online) game, but u don't want to group? So maybe, you should just consider playing single-palyer games like Diablo or Skyrim, and give up mmos. Usually ppl play mmos to play in groups, rather than to play solo.

I'm confused...

 

I'm not a member of any guild, group, or have any friends...  I've completed the story up till my current level (56 It hink)  and i've done a number of the group quests every so often.

I've almost completely solo'd 1-56 in Tera.

Yes, some no-required things require grouping.. so?  ITS A MULTIPLAYER GAME...  [mod edit]

To the OP: there are enough quests you can do solo to where you don't need to do the story quests that require a group. Tho if you were searching for an excuse to stop playing the game I guess that will do.

The main storyline requires you to play each dungeon once (with a group obviously). I hardly see this as something horrible.

What the hell is a BAM?I looked online and all I can find is more BAM talk but not explaining what the hell it is other than a mob.The only thing I can find that may explain it is some guy saying BAM I was dead in 20 seconds....if this is some 'new'word for heroic,elite mobs,whatever ?

Well good for you there,i personally enjoy soloing,and don't like being told where to go,some people play differently,why do you have to make a comment like that.

You like to play in groups,good for you man. Enjoy.

you like rpgs, good for you.  the games on this site are mainly MMO rpgs.  the massively multiplayer part = grouping, deal with it.

 

Fair enough.  There's only one problem.  This site is also flooded with PC players.  Who here plays on consoles and enjoys it.  *raises hand*   *crickets* 

 

To that end I admit there are some.  There's the Witcher 2 and Skyrim and others.  But there are also tons of mmorpgs and the PC is the place you play them on for the most part. 

 

An mmorpg doesnt mean you shouldnt be able to solo.  You should.  Absolutely.  Oh just because its an mmo does that mean I have to totally play with people all the time?  It shouldnt.  And often enough doesnt.  The fact is, PC centric RPG players all have probably played an mmo.  Because they are some of the most plentiful RPGS for the platform. 

 

And if you think for one second the OP is the only one of his kind you'd be dead wrong.  I have a tendency to solo as well.  Sure I make friends, and I interact with people and enjoy it (at least some of the time).  But quests that are group quests have always annoyed me.  Hitting a wall where you HAVE too do it just to level?  Thats atrocious. 

 

Dont make the mistake of assuming the OP never plays with anyone.  Sure he does.  But if he's not in the mood to group he shouldnt have too.  For you it sounds like the MMO is more important.  To others (and many of them) the RPG is most important.  And I happen to be one of those people.  So deal with it.

Well you certainly went through the trouble of making a very long post defending the OP's position and right to solo, even though it's already been made abundantly clear on this thread that you can easily solo your way from 1-60 in TERA.  The OP was mistaken about that part.  He simply needed to gain another level or so through regular quests to unlock the next set of storyline quests to solo.

omg this is what MMORPGs are about.. questing with other people...

If you want to play by yourself play a single player RPG... if you want to PVP pick up an fps style game for instant pvp action..

Doesn't explain it any, does it?

 

 

BAM =

 

Look at it like elites. It's mobs around the world, in each zone with group quests. They are boss fights, usually pretty hard, even for a group. 

 

They are usually soloable but takes a long time, and requires skill and dedication.

 

 

They are not your regular "elite" mobs from other themeparks. They have some nice mechanics, almost diffrent from each one, so you have to adapt and know the fight.

Many thinks in this game reminds me of Lineage 2, and one of those is the socialization that required to reach the full potential of the game. Lineage 2 was the best pvp game i ve ever played ( and i played a lot ) and it seems that TERA will be the next Lineage ( at least for me ) and with a new combat system that i personaly like a lot.

You can do local quests or grind mobs if want to solo to 60, if you have an issue clicking the dungean finder icon or replying to one of the many groups forming in area chat for that instance just once anytime between levels 26 to 31.  The cliche phrase "you will not be missed" works well.

I find it strange to play MMOs when you need to solo 100% of the time, there are better games for single player, demon souls, skyrim, diablo 3,dragon age 1, and plenty other RPG games.  There should never be an MMO where the best experience and best gear come from soloing, the bonuses encourage grouping.

Maybe because thats really the alternative thing you can do in the game other than grinding the same mobs over and over again lol. it is interesting though. When i played the gw2 beta there was barely any talking at all. Perhaps its the availability of area chat?

This game feels more old school (at the moment) than many current games. It's because of this that players seek other players out in order to get their objectives done.

The quests for the most part seem horrible but quite frankly I was never a beliver in "thousands of quests". A few are fine. The rest of the time players should be finding things they want to do.

Since this is a them park game "lite" players can pvp, socialize , group together to take down bams, etc. 

The problem with your statement "grind mobs over and over" is that you don't really see the forest from the trees. Just like in Lineage 2 when the only way you did level was to kill mobs (no "questing" in the form that contemporary games take) the game was never "about" grinding mobs. It was about player interaction. The mobs, bosses, crafting, were just catalysts to get players to interact.

 

Spot on this post!

I honestly have lost the count of how many times I am walking towards a quest and see a massive mob, spend the next 20min trying to solo it even tho I dont need it for anything other than the challenge. I honestly cant say this has happened many times at all in the last 6 odd years.

You don't need to do the group quests to level.  In fact, a lot of the time they actually slow your progress down while you wait for people to organize.  

Pretty much a complete non-issue and a pretty silly reason to quit.
