TERA came the closest to being the game that I could play for a long time.

 

 

Do a complete overhaul of the quest system. I don't care what you do but anything would be better then what we have atm.

Change the pvp system to where its not a gank fest as it is now. Pking need penalties and also get rid of the toggle pvp mode.

Make it so you are not rooted in combat. Its just feels better to move and attack.

Increase the mob AI so much that it makes grouping up being the best way to play TERA.

Make it that the classes can evolve into other classes. Always liked games where you did class changes as you leveled.

TERA's world is really impressive. Its mostly open and seemless so adding player housing to a world like this would be epic. Also add some more open world dungeons and caves. Make it so people have a reason to get off the paths and explore the world.

He is absolutely right, the Elin is highly sexualized, here are your examples.

Those are just 3 examples i found after doing a google "Tera Elin" image search.

If you don't think this race ain't highly sexualized then i don't want to ever meet you in real life, there is no need to show so much skin if you want to make a "cute" race.

Not enough Elin Lancers?

 

But seriously it's just a quest runner which is good if that's what you're looking for.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Questing is utter boring in this game, never played a MMO where every area felt EXACTLY same like copy & paste which means I never would play a twink. Manaproblems are a huge pain in the butt even if you "glyph" everything for less mana thats just nonsense and no fun. Here is the other point, the glyphs for the most part are totally boring what they give you.

Crafting /sigh, why everything you can craft stands there in grey text ? Very annoying to look through your craftable stuff.

Questing was by far the best in GW2, sadly GW2 dungeons without real roles are boring and chaotic but thats personal preference I guess. I just like to play sometimes tank, heal, DD well you get the point but in GW2 it always feels the same. Also dont like how the skills are bound to your weapon and too less skills you can use at once.

And sadly the camera in GW2 is total annoying for PvP and they even made it this way by purpose with the "heavy" slow camera which you cant zoom out much /sigh ...

But questing in GW2 if you did everything on the map with sight seeing points etc. was the best experience ever in any MMO so far, especially with no annoying questhubs.

For graphics GW2 is nice but Tera for sure has better graphics easily.

Overall both games are worth it to play for 1-2 months but thats it :/.


I actually played GW2 with the combat mod (forgot name) for some time, it was really good, the mod would auto press the camera (right mouse button) for you, with that the game gets a completely different feeling.

The end game consist of grinding an luck.

Not a good system outside of asia.

I didn't find anything off about it. I enjoyed it to the last day, the combat was the most fun I ever did and I couldn't get bored of it. The combat alone could keep me grinding dungeons for months, it is just as addicting as crack xD I didn't care about quests, because I love endgame gear grind (no sacrasm).

The reason I stopped was because there were to little people playing and I had to wait for hours to get to the end game dungeons. So basically I had to stop playing because other people don't like the game for some reason xD It is sad. I would keep going if it was more popular.

Haha, yeah, the rude world of Tera, i love it !

My char is 55 now and i slowly get a picture of what comes by when i hit 60.

The recent Alliance patch gave us landcontrol, 3 faction PvP that starts with 60.

It is a themepark as long as you play it like one. It turns sandbox, when you follow your own path.

Ofcause Tera isnt perfect, but what is there, is fun.

 

I like the character development and all the mechanics that lead you to be a monster.

I love the combat system, one of the best i ever played. You got to understand chain-skills to make it fluid.

I like the world, even if right these fantasy themes are not exacly mine, i have regulary "whoa"-moments because some places in this world are really impressive done.

 

The community isnt so bad.

Its a PvP game so it drags all the jerks, assholes and clowns to shine out of the mass, but the most people are really very nice.

At least i am one of them and i for my understood already, that people play Elins for their smaller target frame ^^

As said, its a PvP game, its about domination, landcontrol and rating.

Agreed. The combat is pretty great though.

bandwidth caps in the west, 30GB download, i5 or better to play.

 

Tera was destined to be for dedicated online gamers by design.

Tera end game is trash for both pvp and pve. 

For a pver the problems are:

1.  End game you just do the same things over and over and over

2.  Can finish all content in the game in 1 month easy

 

For a pvper the problems are:

1.  The pvp servers are really pve servers, very very casual, the owpvp is non existent

2.  The new pvp content is just silly...dominated by potions and just zoned pvp even on the pvp servers

3.  The BG's are about the only pvp in the game where you can always get pvp, however they are dominated by pve within the BG

4.  At end game you can literally never leave the safezones and finish everything

5.  The best gear even for pvp is done through pve

 

There are your reasons why from one of the biggest Tera fanboys ever...

Tera was a mmo designed to appeal to the pre teen crowd ...sort of a light shallow  little game where you can jump onto your Toon and run around killing Bam Bams and following bread crumps from point to point ,

Simple answer: Repulsive art style.

Eastern style, everyone carrying a canoe sized sword in their back, silly pointy armors with huge boobs hanging out or oiled sixpacks with no protection. It's just... *shakes his head*

Except a lot of people like that or don't mind it so that really isn't  the reason.

The "reason" why it isn't more popular is because of "why?" "Why level" because once you get to the top there isn't much to do.

PvP is really just for the fun of it. One could have fun and pvp for something such as territory or keeping people out of terriroty. But there are just pvp maps.

Or if you are a pve person you level only to get to run the same dungeons over and over again for better armor drops and er 'then what?"

I love the world and love the combat. Rooting doesn't bother me at all.

but I have a top level character with some decent armor and no where to go with it other than run some dungeons over and over again to get some slightly better pieces. Or do the pvp maps over and over again so I can get some "better pvp pieces".

The game is not thought out well, it's just a great proof of concept piece. I'll be more interested to see what they do with the faction pvp.

Oh, but one should never underestimate the artsy stuff. A pile of my friends didn't even bother to try Tera, just because of the art style. I can imagine there's a lot more people like that.

Just like you, I could easily say "A lot of people hate that, so that is one reason".

They swept under the rugs that UI bug which cause unacceptable performance drops. Also unplayable when your FPS drop under 10 on bosses. I bet half the people are having the same problem but treat it as normal. There was an official forum thread on the problem and it got simply removed and forgotten.

Most people who say the combat is boring didn't get to the end game. That lead to one of the problem of TERA: leveling is boring and easy. Also, you don't get all your skills until the last levels. The end game is truly one of the most interesting and challenging I have experienced in an MMO. 99.9% of people will never get pass Kelsaik in hard mode.

I'm sure this isn't the only or even main reason the game isn't popular. However, for me personally it was a turn off. Don't get me wrong, I like my girls to look sexy/pretty, but Tera is trying waaayyy too hard for me to take it seriously. Running animations perfectly done for me to see up their skirts, over the top hip movements then they climb up ladders, etc.

For most people (and even fans on the official forums) it would seem lack of end game is the major problem.

I agree with you 1000%, and yet for some reason all the girls panties are wet over Final Fantasy. 

 

Makes no sense to me at all.

Tera endgame is very few PVE instances that you do over and over even though they get boring fast - and two different battlegrounds (the only PVP content the game has to offer) that have serious balancing issues because of the broken instance finder that didn't get fixed for over a year. The NA "devs" last year said they evaluate providing players with some open world content but as we can see they decided against it.

So the big question is: Why would Tera be popular when it just has some nice graphics and a fun combat system while it lacks strongly on the content part and is really weak on the pvp portions?

I played Tera since open beta because I love the combat system - but didn't login for a few weeks now. There simply is nothing left to do that I didn't do at least 50-100 times. I'll never understand why a company that doesn't have the man power to create enough content for a theme park puts doesn't evaluate some open world content like world bosses to give their player base epic pvp fights. They also could boost the BAMs and add some decent drops to them, that would be another reason to make people leave safe zone but guess what, they decided the NERF them.
