Something similar to:

Don't even bother trying the game. It's not what you are looking for. Combat is decent but that's it. The rest has no depth. Good game, but not for a player like you.

That the combat is fun for a while but using the same weapon and same skills forever gets old.

Playing: Lotro, DOTA2, ESO, Darkfall
Also played and worth mentioning: UO, WoW, Lineage2

Go ahead and buy it, it will be fun for a while.

Don't invite your asshole friend to play with you, he will just ruin your time.

I would tell myself that it was going to be the first true WoW killer, because it has such a masterpiece of an endgame.  Then six months later, I'd be laughing my ass off, at my own expense.  It would be awesome.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

Tell my friends who enjoyed it in BETA not to leave because GW2 will let them down and then i'll be stuck playing TERA without them for no reason.

 

I also would have told myself not to leave for GW2 cause it would cause me to miss getting on a team for the BG tournament. c.c

 

And told myself to level a berserker because that shunned class would soon get buffed to ultimate success.

"Yeah, best combat in an MMO you will see for sometime. Sucks it fell short in so many of the other areas huh?"

 

Yeah, just disapointment no other game stepped up with better combat yet. Damn you Tera, favorite combat system in an MMO hands down by leaps and bounds and you got to have such a weak questing system and just lag behind in to many areas.

I would tell myself: "don't worry about pre-order bonuses because you will only play this game for about 10 hours before realizing that it's total rubbish."

Wait one month and learn which class you want to play and can play well in the PvE server.   Then reroll in the PvP server with all you know now and stick to it. And sell all those runes. Sell em all.

Not what you are looking for, go back to EVE for now.

"Are you sure you want to do this?"... followed by "Fine, go ahead, but realize that the enchanting system and crafting system are going to make you throw your monitor out of the window..."

 

But really, the game was fun and I enjoyed it fully besides the crafting which took like 400 of item X (which was typically hard to find).  As well as getting a weapon to +5 and farming for hours and hours to buy something from the AH in hopes of getting it to +6 only to have the item fail and all that time being wasted.  Most aggravating thing in the world.  I enjoyed the game so much that I even sent Enmasse a message via e-mail, chat support, and forums - telling them that several of my friends and guildmates were hitting the same issue and were planning on leaving.  Obviously, this wasn't to get them to change things right away but more of a notice on why several players had just recently unsubscribed.

 

Sad really, such an excellent game but it's faults were just too difficult to overlook for this player.
