It's all just pixels...

Is it just me or does this game have too much loot. It kind of kills the wow factor when everything is so readily available and easy to get. Maybe it's just me but there seems to be a ton of everything in this game and is easily obtainable making things more boring overall. Tera doesn't seem to be the only game suffering with this problem...

Might consider if this genre is for you at all, if you experience that this is a common problem with MMORPGs.

The BiS is really difficult to get actually. You need to clear Manaya HM around 350 times in order to get everything ( and of course a fair amount of Nexus, Battlegrounds, Vitriol and Dailies additionally). I'm at approx. 300 and have only managed to craft the weapon and chest yet.

Actually the problem with Tera is there is so much worthless loot.  If they even made the loot you got solo able to be used as fodder for +s on the items you grouped for, it would make it somewhat passable.  There rapidly becomes no reason to solo or to group below the specific dungeons that have what you would use.  In essence it is a loot ladder that gives 99% chaff to 0.95% fodder to 0.05% useful.

Time does not equal difficulty. You also don't need VM gear to do anything in the game. The first people to beat MC HM before it got nerfed did it all in +12 DK gear. People 3 man MCHM now. The rest of the stuff is just grinding and time consuming.

 

OP if you plan on playing TERA just do yourself a favor get some KN raid gear armor and +12 it and just wait until more content comes out. Don't even bother with VM gear or any of that stuff. It's simply not worth it. The game needs more content. TERA will always be the game "that could have been so much more".

You'll be able to update your VM gear to BiS again, so it's worth that. B

Besides, Manaya is almost one year old, so of course it's easier meanwhile:

- people killing her with kelsaiks stuff or queen eq bought from other people

- some people just needed more time and the probability gets higher to get help from people who have beaten her already

- the 3 man groups (only few groups are doing that) are equipped with atleast VM weapons and that's not a guarantee at all 

The real problem though is not the difficulty but the content delivering. In the first months almost none was able to kill that beauty, only a really small amount of static groups was farming her. Most of us really liked the difficulty because we needed weeks to get her down and even after that it was still a challenge for some time. We we were like the third group on our server to clear that dungeon back then, partially with crafted t13 items, and we did it like 1,5 months after the argon update. it just takes them too long to give us new challenging content.

 

And by the way, the Queen itself in hardmode didnt get nerfed, only the pillar phase which is just annoying.
