The two games are quite different, and the opionion as far as which is better will vary greatly from person to person.

Imo Aion is a better game, even though it is more traditional MMORPG with standard combat, overall as a whole game experience, I just enjoyed it a lot more. Tera to me was a one trick pony, and after I got bored of the combat (which I found far too slow as far as time to kill at higher levels), I was done for good.

As good as Teras combat is I found it inferior to original pre-nerf AoC combat which remains unmatched by any MMORPG for me. AoC had very fast time to kill at 80 with good gear and correct combos, while in Tera you can fight one mob for several minutes..it just gets old.

Just my opinion.

... Why are people posting about some other game on here? Seriously, might blow your mind but, your games might not be that great and might not appeal to the OP. Lets go stop mentioning other game in a thread between Tera and Aion, alright?

Aion itself is still a grind, but it has its perks as well. The grind you WILL take part in and you WILL need to deal with it, though of course it has more content and the combat is, as you know, quite fun for a traditional MMo combat style with the combination attacks.

Tera still has some lacking on content but at the same time its not to unexpected considering it is still relatively new. I do enjoy their concepts, which if they improve on it they can become really good.

Honeslty, why not both? Neither really needs to be taken over the other. Given you reach the end your going to find both take some grind to get 'good' though Aion has probably more 'refined' pvp play style. Tera, on the other hand, does offer a bit more skill based competition in terms of positioning and chaining skills which can make Tera perhaps more competative. Its really up to you in the end. I would say if you can, play both and work on them. They are quite different beasts and you can probably have fun with both, picking up and playing one that appeals to you most at the moment.

the game is basically a year out. its hardly new no matter whose standards you're using. and their concepts which you want them to improve are all entirely the same since closed beta. they're made miniscule steps towards making crafting better and they made it sound like it was a complete rework of the crafting system, but its still the same worthless crafting system as before back in closed beta.  they just made it easier to max, but they're still on the whole useless aside from alchemy.

Okay after extensively playing both in both the original and F2P states I would have to say I had a lot more fun playing Tera out of the two. I hit the cap and started the crazy grind of endgame gear which was fine in the beginning but got extensively worse as I upgraded my gear. I would probably say Aion may have more longevity in terms of endgame content and pvp, but Tera has a bigger population and better combat.

Just my opinion.

Ah I see, you quit at level 53-57, yes those zones are fucked up and all the mobs get like 3x more HP for some reason, but at 60 in the correct gear you can one shot regular mobs your level and take down BAMs in 30 seconds.

 

Opposed to normal mobs in 40 seconds and BAMs in 10 minutes at level 53-57.

Yeah keep in mind that the BAMS have so much health at those levels because they are considered 5 man content and the quests are VERY good on the xp. At 60, you don't need xp so they aren't so bad.

you'd be right if it was only the bams that got a major hp boost, but its also the regular quest mobs. everything for no reason like he said just gets a major hp boost. like it was just to make leveling take longer for no other reason than to extend leveling time.

i have played both to max lvl and done all the endcontent. in aion u have much more endcontent then in tera. also the pvp content is more. in tera u have a 3vs3 and a 15vs15 bg (map always the same). in aion u have 1vs1, 10vs10 (no grps but everyone vs everyone), the dredgion (grp vs grp), rifting and ofc sieging. but both have also the open world pvp (in tera only pvp servers and in aion on some maps)

and imo the pve in aion was also better. the dungoens and the raids were much more fun.

the only thing i would prefer in tera is the combat.
