I was proud to be a part of this past weekend's CBT and it was worth every second that I put into it. It instantly grabbed ahold of me when I was just at the character creation screen. There are so many options and classes to choose from. I loved how every race was able to choose any class, not those games where if you wanna be a certain class you have to choose from the one race. You could choose between male or female which really gets a lot of attention. I don't know how many times a game will have gender locked classes and people will flip about it.
After my character was created you go through this little intro video then your off into the beautiful world of TERA. Let me start off by saying that the graphics were BEAUTIFUL. The mobs are amazing looking and the background is beautiful. I started off playing the Berserker which has skills that you can charge up to attack. It had a little bit of a monster hunter feel to it, but more perfected. I started off using an Afterglow Xbox Controller which was fun for a while, but once you get more skills to choose from it becomes a little difficult to control.
The gameplay was so much fun. I really love action MMOs like this and it surpassed any expectations I had for it. As soon as I started you could see the usual trolls complaining in the zone chat, so that quickly got turned off. Then I was able to truly enjoy the game.
If you get a chance to try out the last CBT, jump on that opportunity! The game is amazing and I guarantee that it will not let you down.
