Unless of course you want to play castanic... then I guess they don't wear clothes. Lol.

If this is something you got to log into and play the game to see, that's one thing, every single scrap of anything I watched while it was being developed was some naked chick fighting some unreasonably bizarre monster thing with over the top jumps and booty jiggling to rival any pole dancer's wildest night. And I followed this game til I started to see a trend with the teasers. One could wonder why the hell I'm even in the forum now, I wanted to see how it was doing, and saw the top post about a chat filter being rediculous and I actually read the post. I told the guy the signs were there, and he should have known what he was getting into. I've gone on to say holding a games "world" chat against the game isn't a reasonable thing to do.
Also, middle bottom girl looks the coolest in that set.
Now that may be some fans' idea of what TERA is about or whatever, but this is what was all over about the game, mostly naked women (I don't know or care what the races are, or why they're naked and various levels of mostly nudeness); along with some almost convincing videos of combat and telegraphing the monsters were going to do to alert you about when to move out of the way of the super move. Those almost had me, I liked Mike Tyson's punchout, alot and that's what it instantly reminded me of. I just knew the people who'd be all over this game; and the overall look of it just wasn't my bag. Hell, if you're feeling bored and need to give me a few reasons why I should pick the game up, I'd love to listen to them. I'm very happy Pivotelite showed me a few pictures of not naked women; and I must say again, bottom middle girl is looking pretty awesome.
I love MMORPG's. Not often can you tell someone holding a sword they suck at life without being stabbed to death.

I don't know what the whole fuss over this game is about anymore in this thread. After reading everyone's statements and claims to what they've seen, heard, believe, or know about the game, seems to be extremely different than how I'm seeing and currently playing the game right now.
I bought TERA standard edition when it was in beta who knows when years ago. I never actually played the game (except for closed beta) until now. I log into the game, castanic male priest, and just have a go at the game with an open mind. I was totally into it, I got to around level 25 in one sitting. Pretty nice overall, until I got to the next zone in lumbertown where there were a lot of players and had a huge hit to my fps, down to about 15-20. I was playing smoothly up to that point, and eventually did a lot of tweaking (which I'll post below) and now have a constant 45-70 fps at all times. I'll show you 2 guides I followed that greatly increased my fps without sacrificing very much at the end of the post assuming you read this whole thing.
Any game that is going to have Global chat, no matter where you are 24/7 with very little restrictions is of course going to be ruled by children, who are just learning the meaning and impact of curse words, and want to do as they please unmonitored by their mommies. Honestly, if you are going to whine so hard about chat and negative attitudes, you have got to be new this decade of internet. No matter what game you play, trolls, jerks, kids, racists, supremecists, you name it, will exist, and can ruin your experience. My advice; turn off global chat.... Find a good that you can associate with, make friends there, or play with already existing friends. I had 2 of my good friends to play with, we skype and have fun. Within my first 10 levels of playing, I found a guild recruitment message that sounded friendly and fun so I joined. So far I've made a handful of aquaintances and a few other friends to talk and play with. It's as simple as that. People raging against the community just because global chat is a child's playground, doesn't make the entire game or social experience bad.
To those of you whining about you don't like Tera because of the art style of the clothing and options, specially those half-naked ones, get over it. Remember, the game was created by Koreans, for Koreans. I'm not sure I've ever seen or played any other Korean game that didn't also showcase half nude men/women suited up for battle. If I can recall, there were some fairly skimpy outfits in both Guild Wars 1 and 2, just google image female armor sets and have a looksee. I don't honestly find that outfits that don't cover your entire body should be any reason not to play a game, besides, there are armor sets that do fully cover your body, and a system that lets you use any armor design you'd like as a template over another. You aren't forced to wear that skimpy outfit unless you want to <<<guilty.
I have yet to have any problems with the UI. you can fully customize the size and move around fully every UI element in the game. In the options, you can set a value to what you want a certain UI element's size to be. I shrunk my minimap to about 75, my skillbar to about 85, and increased healthbar size to around 110 so that it all fits nicely like a game of Tetris on my screen so that I can view everything neat and organized how I want it to be. At least I don't have to download 10 different addons to have different customized looks like in WoW, or have no customization options at all like a bunch of other MMO's out there today.
Anyways, here's 2 links that should help you get a definite improvement to your performance issues, assuming you are still going to try out this game again before rage quitting over false pretenses.
And with your performance, your comp is literally 5x better than my 5 year old, AMD comp, and I get constant 40-70 fps because of these guides.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Processor ~3.4GHz
ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series
TL;DR Sorry that all of your first impressions of this game seem to be terrible, but mine was fantastic and I hope you all would really give the game a fighting chance, and read this post as my experience thus far is nothing compared to some of your stories and experiences.

I am actually enjoying the game. I am playing the endless trial or whatever it is, and might continue on and even spend some cash in the shop. having said that I play all games casually and am also playing AION, L2, and EQ. So, its not like I think this game is great or will be playing long term even...but for now, for free -- im having some fun.
On to my main point, I started playing MMOs in '99 with EQ and have played many since then, and there is no question, the community (judging by global chat) in this game is pathetic.
basically the older games have the more mature playerbases from my opinion/experience. as far as TERA is concerned the amount, extent and non-stop immature silliness exhibited by some of the players in this game is impressive to me, as this is not my first MMO or my first day on the internet. its almost unreal, its like these kids are paid to troll global chat in this game NONSTOP. regardless, I am a very antisocial player in online games so it wont stop me from playing.
