OP  4/06/12 8:06:44 AM#1

En Masse Entertainment has laid out the details of the final beta weekend. Starting today, Friday, April 6th and continuing through midnight Sunday, April 8th, the event will give players a last opportunity to try out and provide feedback for TERA prior to its May 1st launch.

In this last event, the Valkyon Federation, bolstered by a surge of new soldiers, strikes back at its foes, reestablishing control of troubled realms, and upsetting the meticulous plans of its enemies. In an effort to destabilize the federation and disrupt its momentum, Thulsa has decided to launch attacks at the relatively unprotected capital—Velika. The evil god is gathering a small army of monsters to fling them at the City of Wheels. The Mysterium's arcanists detected Thulsa's plans and alerted Fraya, who sent word to Velika. With little forewarning, will the federation be able to defend the city and thwart Thulsa's machinations? Be ready for a call to action in the evening hours of Friday and Saturday!

IMHO I like it a lot, both for gameplay and graphics, but if it fails, it will be because of how easy it is (until level 30's or so I'm told) which might turn off new players, the speed to level cap, and the pretty basic MMO features. That said, I did preorder it, but I don't expect to play it long-term.

Last Tera fun until it, hopefully, goes f2p in the future for me. I love the combat but everything else about the game is either blah or stinks for me. Here's to one last time!

It doesn't get any better than having people who have never even tried the game, talk about how bad it is o_O.

There's been plenty of beta keys gone out, I'm sure most if not everyone who was curious about the game got to try it at this point. I don't know why you think you're exclusive, or something. There's nothing new about the combat system in this day and age. If you think twitch combat is new, you need to expand your horizons a bit. It's only action-oriented if you're a meleer, if you're a caster it's the same as it always was; move out of the way of immediate danger, then stand still and throw fire and ice at things. How very dynamic.


I enjoyed teaming on my cleric, but there's not enough reason to do so and the solo play is boring and monotonous. I honestly enjoyed RaiderZ far more.

This is one worth trying if your tired of the same themepark gameplay. Sure, you can quest your way to endgame (or not) and 1-20 is pretty linear but it opens to a lot of group content and gameplay options. It has 95% of the systems you see in the titles up until now, plus some extras. Lastly, do not overlook who runs it. EME has done everything you could ask from a publisher. They are not just stewards of the game in NA but can hangs major parts of the gameplay. If you don't already know about TERA you should take some time to do so as this is a quality AAA MMO.

Just not worth my time anymore.

I really like this game mainly due to the combat and open world pking.  The combat is awesome. Twitch combat has been tried before in mmorpg's like AoC and Darkfall, but TERA actually gets it right.  It is very smooth and tactical.  It feels a lot like Dark Souls which is a good thing.  For those who aren't into pking, the BAM's are cool PVE contant and it has both instanced and open world dungeons.  Combat is really what makes or breaks mmorpgs, and TERA has the best on the market and still beats out the future competition in development.  Since it is what you do 95% of the time in mmorpgs, it really makes the game great and gives them a nice base to build around.

I had no interest in this game. However, I was able to get a beta key from the last giveaway and tried it out. I had loads of fun! I loved the combat.

Interesting... You honestly can tell me that the combat in this game has been done before? I mean variations of it have been attempted but this game actually has it's own very unique approach. And as a caster you cannot tab target, cast... oh wait i wasn't facing my target... auto turn... and cast with one key. You do have to aim, you have to know your distance to the target, you need to be mobile. As I type this I am not really sure why I am defending the game to idiotic posts like this that are just... well flat out lies but whatever. I hope people do try the game for themselves and not listen to the drones. Sorry if the game was not your cup of tea, but call it what it is.

    I applied for beta but never got an invite.....My interest has pretty much waned since reading the beta leaks on it.....Like most of you I'm guessing it will be f2p within a few months and maybe I'll look at it then.

The combat system is the best  in an mmo that I have seen so far, and has not really been done before in an mmo like this.  The closest I have seen is maybe Champions, but you don't have to depend on aiming like you do in Tera.  It makes the game much more interactive and exciting to play in my opinion.  The previous posts about casters is totally wrong as you have to be aiming the whole time as you are moving about to take down mobs.   Going to spend the rest of the weekend having a lot of fun!

The game will be fun for a month, then fall off just like most of the recent new games.  I played the last beta weekend,  I think most of us just like exploring a new world/chrs and such.  The graphics are nice combat is ok.  But that is where it stops, leveling is boring as hell, go to quest pub get kill x creatures, collect x items that do not drop every time.  Turn in quests go to next quest pub kill and collect worthless items.  I know a lot are like it is an mmorpg what else did you expect?  Well SWTOR did one thing right and that was make the leveling up process fun as hell.  I felt like I was apart of the game with my chr, I was helping turn the tide for my side!  I cared about the dialoge listened/read it all.  This game I do not care, the story is blah.  I tried to get into it but I could not no matter how hard I tried making the leveling painfully boring.  PvP servers are going to have small populations because the hardcore PK'ers are going to power level, go to lower level zones and camp out choke points making it impossible for people to level unless they have high level friends guard them while they level.  Then the race traits are horrible.  If you want to PvP there is only a 2 or 3 races worth it, humans who have a trait when they are below 30% health they recieve less pvp damage and another race that gets a a reduction in damage from everything when they are less then 30%.  So you will see pretty much see a few races on the PvP servers because you need the good traitsn to be the best.  Not to say a few people will not pick the other races, I know I will because I like to be different.  Now I did pre order the game because my friends talked me into it, and I just hope I can ride it out until Diablo 3/GW2/PS2 comes out and atleast get my month worth.

I enjoy the combat except for the animation lock/root. And for those saying it hasn't been done before, well maybe not in a mainstream mmo. But games like Vindictus and C9 have this sort of combat. Now whether you consider them mmos, that is up for debate.

Anyway good luck to the game. Personally I wish it was just a buy to play game instead of subscription based. I most likely would purchase it then.

DCUO has a combat system very similar to this game.  I actually think DCUO is better, just they messed up the balance of the game.  depending on the right,left clicks of the mouse the different combos you would perform.  You could block or roll away, if they blocked you needed to do a block breaker.  Combat was fast paced and fun in my opinion.  They just messed up with the amount of bugs/balance which broke the game.  Wish they would have done a lot better with that game because I did like the combat.

They are MMO's, just not MMORPG's in the traditional sense. (though not sure the term has much meaning these days)

Whatever, I decided to pre-order today so I could take the characters I made in the last beta a little further into the greater game world past the starter zone.
