Default TERA

Tera Online

So Tera Online is a game. It looks really pretty and plays really "different." There's like 8 classes and 7 races.
And they are all equally pretty. Except Aman. They are kind of ugly. Anyway, gameplay is kind of like a third person shooter.
wasd to move, mouse to look, aim at an enemy and use one of your 23463552 skills.
It's also a lot about dodging and such.
Also the game is really huge. There are like 80 different map areas and it took me like an hour to traverse 1 of them.
To give you a frame of reference, the game is like 24gb.

Or you could watch this gameplay:


And this flight path:


Key Thingys
It's Pay to Play and you can preorder now for bonus mounts and month play and a reserved name.
It is damn pretty.
Gameplay is fun.
It is really damn pretty.
PvP is enjoyable.
It is pretty well optimized for not-high-end computers.


So yeah. I'll probably be playing it for a few months worth of subscription.
Unless I get horribly addicted...

I've seen stuff about this game, but I gave up liking MMO's a long time ago after they stopped being fun for me. This one does look kind of cool though, but I've thought that about a lot of online games.

I have trouble running LoL and WoW. I doubt I'd be able to run this. Looks pretty though!

I like that this one isn't just a regular "click an enemy and wait until they die." Rather, you actually need a hint of skill to not die, and in theory could kill high level things at the start.

Maybe it's just me, but this game has looked like just another Rift or Aion. A lot of fluff before it comes out and nothing but general apathy after it's released.

What Nami said was my first instinct.

But I really hope that's not how this goes.

I really hope not.

It would be nice to see a decent, unique MMORPG come out now and then. Wouldn't mind seeing it be this one. Just not expecting it from what I've seen.

Definitely.

Though, some of the major flaws of typical asian MMOs have been addressed from what I've heard.

The combat system is new and fresh, the leveling doesn't hit a "wall" around 20 or 25 like in most of them and people have said it's all very stream-lined, and the community plays a large part.

People electing a ruler of an entire region who can control social and economic things? Sounds pretty cool to me. It would also put a nice twist on guild pvp.

Edit: Got the digital CE cause I'm a whore :<

I'm in it this weekend. We should all pick a server to play on.

There's: Arachnaea (PvE), Serpentis Isle (PvE), Dragonfall (PvE), Valley of Titans (PvP), and Jagged Coast (PvP)

It'd be neat to play on a pvp server to see what it's like.

Actually I may not need that Tera code. This game wouldnt finish installing until probably Sunday morning, so someone else deserves it more.

I'd hate to let this code go to waste.

Actually scratch that. Nevermind.


The offer to engage in Kombat still stands though. I'm free tonight, and tomorrow night.

At this point, that'd be better than no one taking it. Provided you actually play and don't flake out about it! Scoffee! I see you there!
