    Default TERA Online

    Anyone else purchase the game? If so, hit me up if you're on Dragonfall; just add Eigenvalues to friends list.

    Anyways, for those of you who don't know what it is, TERA is a new MMO (released May 2nd, so just over one week ago) that has some admittedly stunning visuals (especially for a game using an old UT engine), and boasts an action-oriented combat system. That is, instead of locking onto a target and just spamming skills, you have to aim your reticle (like the crosshairs in an FPS) and actually AIM your abilities or else you miss. There's no RNG dodge/parry system, defense is purely based on players using their abilities to get out of the way of attacks or blocking them.

    It's hard to describe how the gameplay is with words though, so here's a few videos instead:

    People like to compare it to Monster Hunter, but I feel it's much more fast paced personally, closer to Dragon Nest if you've ever played either.

    In any case, the combat system keeps the pve pretty exciting (and makes the PvP AMAZING), and the environment design is absolutely spectacular. My computer is ridonkulously old, but the game still looks incredible. My brother and I have been playing together, and a joke we keep saying to each other while levelling is "Look up!"

    It basically means that you need to stop focusing on your crosshairs and turn the camera up to appreciate the scenery. I've been trying to remember to take some screenshots as I go through the zones, but I only managed to take a few. Here they are:

    Another flyby
     



    Late 40's questing area
     



    Early 40's questing zone
     

    Yes, your flight paths go through god damn STARGATES. Anyways, first flight to the human capitol after finishing the noob zone.

    I want to buy it but considering I don't like paying for monthly fees.

    I'll pass.

    I mean, yeah...the game is A LOT more fast-paced than Monster Hunter. Heck, I don't even see any resemblance. Overall the combat is overrated..I mean it's good (not THAT good) but people seem to give it waaay too much credit. ALSO A TPS RETICLE NOT A FPS RETICLE.

    FPS = FIRST PERSON VIEW

    TPS = THIRD PERSON VIEW

    I can't say anything about Dragon Nest since Nexxon sucks like a lot of Korean Gaming/MMO Companies.

    I used to hate monthly fees too, but 15 a month isn't very hard to get, and if you enjoy the game you get your enjoyment for the fee.

    I mean, yeah...the game is A LOT more fast-paced than Monster Hunter. Heck, I don't even see any resemblance.
    For sure, much faster and none of the classic monhun things like breakoffs to craft your own gear.
    Overall the combat is overrated..I mean it's good (not THAT good) but people seem to give it waaay too much credit.
    Have you played it? For MMO players who are looking for a fresher take, TERA is a great alternative. The combat is a very simple change that adds that next level of dynamic interaction, but retains the familiar basis of other MMOs.

    The biggest whine-fest I've seen so far is that you still have to quest to level up, but I guess my Asian racial passives make me immune to this part of the game. I'm 7 levels from cap, and it's only been a week with about 4 days taken off cause I needed to study for finals. Grab a buddy to level with, or play on a pvp server if you're flying solo; this always keeps things interesting.

    Nah, I got the money to pay for the subscription for 10 years or more (not to brag) but I'm just not fan of the concept. With things like Xbox Live, it felt like kind of a need and PS+ is just a must (free games and discounts).

    Of course I tried out the beta, Otherwise I wouldn't know it differs from MH. xD

    Well, I'm not much of a MMO player I guess I will give it a try though. Full game that is.

    I just started up again since they switched it to free to play.
    I was an original beta tester it will be interesting to see the changes they made since the switch to free to play.
    That and I really like the gameplay, the story is decent as well.
