    this game is good

    so with the many hours ive spend in mmorpg's ive never seen one which stands out more than this one.
    the combat in this game is not all strategy like in other mmorpg's
    (at least the ones i have played.)
    it requires you to dodge enemy attacks. i would prefer this game over any other mmorpg.
    just because i need to dodge shit.

    An MMO, with all that entails.

    A little background, so you will know where I'm coming from. I started with MMOs on Ultima Online back in the 90s. I avoided the WoW movement, but stuck with numerous F2P titles, like Allods, WildStar, Champions, Fallen Earth, Perfect World, and a few others.

    If you haven't played Tera, but you're looking to get into an MMO, all boiled down I'd say this is a great one to try.

    PROS:
    The progression grind doesn't feel terribly grindy.
    The Graphics are pretty great. Not the best I've seen, but they work with what they have.
    Numerous Races and Classes for each Race, and one of the most robust customization systems I've seen this side of Skyrim.
    Can be played comfortably without paying a dime.
    You get a Mount pretty much at the start.
    Your character feels powerful, but there are enemies that will smack you down like a fly. I missed that from UO. lol

    CONS:
    It has a very busy interface.
    Quests quickly become lost, as side quests stack with the main story, requiring scrolling to see what quests are available.
    In-game tutorials are VERY sparing. I have a bank full of crafting items I have no idea how to use. And don't get me started on Guilds.
    Getting vanity items without spending actual money is the grindiest grind in the game.
    Tera is old enough that the lower level areas are pretty barren of players.
    If you're a feminist, don't even load this. The female characters all suffer from skank-armor, covering just enough to greasily slide under the door of the FCC's office. Seriously, how they are all not dead of skin cancer from exposure I'll never understand. AND don't even bring up the little girl race. Just don't. *shudder*

    Overall, I've enjoyed myself and watched the hours melt away. Killing mobs becomes systematic, like mining in Minecraft, where the process becomes automatic and almost cathartic. The world is beautiful to look at. Flying around the world from area to area on a flippin winged horse is pretty sweet. The Combat is spot on, and as an Archer, having to actually kinda aim at the mobs is so much better than the auto-aim hack and slash of most MMOs.

    The GUI is cluttered, the crafting complex, and the social structure confusing. But all of that fades away when you are taking down a hulking building-sized whatever it was called by yourself. My recommendation would be to give it a shot. Is it the best game ever made? No. But it's a pleasant time-sink, easy on the grind, and heavy on the mob slaughter. Enjoy.

    Good MMORPG

    I think that TERA is one of the best MMORPGs you can play right now. It’s a great game to come back and play as often as you can, but its massiveness, great quests and the numerous challenges are those things that will keep you coming more and more. I encourage you to check TERA out, it has numerous expansions released recently, a lot of new content and the overall performance of the game has improved drastically.

    I like it

    Recently I started playing it again after a year , because of the new update . I thought many things were changed but for now its only the first few quests.
    Anyway the game is very good . The combat system is one of the best ( no point and click once on enemy to attack ) . I feel like i liked it more last year but i guess its just because im not so new ?
    The game is open world , you can party with friends and there is a story(not a great one , but story ).
    There are lots of classes to choose from and some races that have their own passive abillities . And lots of abillities that you learn early on the game

    Also one more thing for everyone having problems with the launcher(for many people its broken-stuck at applying patch / stuck at 0% / 99% / etc.)
    Do not download the game from "gameforge", but from "enmasse" .

    1 of the best mmorpg's out there for the moment

    hello and welcome to my review :),

    I played TERA a few hours and all I have to say about this game is : AMAZING !!!!!!! I am searching for a descend mmorpg with a good player base for a while now and I have finnaly found it.

    PRO's:
    - verry nice graphics
    - you can choose from 11 classes ! and around 7 races ( not sure it were 7 :p )
    - the game is verry balanced
    - good storyline with nice cinematics included
    - for a F2P game you get allot of content in return

    CON's:
    - it's 37GB large so it takes a while to download it but you can stream it so its able to play while downloading
    - there is a sort of premium you can buy ingame to get more exp and gold per quest etc... , but they have to get money somehow and its for a verry low price so it's not much of a con for me

    I hope everyone enjoyed this short review and maybe see you ingame ! :p

    I love Tera

    Good Night.

    Sorry for my english but i'm from Colombia. I love this game and its missions, one of my favorites games. Was my first MMORPG and just in that moment i was in love with the genre. My favorites games are the FPS, but with tera I discovery one excelent game type. Its jugability is excelent, and its history catches to everyone indifferente at this genre, as i happened to me. in my opinion, The game encourage to the team work.

    I Recommend this game.

    Tera has potential to be great but.

    I leveled some characters in my time and came back to game really a lot. Until now Tera was really one of a kind game where you could enjoy combat. It had charm and potential.
    Environment looked great and the sky was so nice to stop and look at. Fighting simple monsters and moving on to big one's called BAM's which were harder and more rewarding to kill was fun. There are still damage dealers, healers and tanks but still skill was needed. You can't just run around and face tank bosses. The game has story but it's nothing really interesting that you will remember. There are a lot of races to choose from which is great.
    But there really big downsides as well. Community is bad, some people will be able to help you out. But most of players create a loli character that looks like a small under aged girl. Sit around with other loli players talking about nonsense and dressing their characters in... I believe you can guess in what.
    Since the game came out we have three classes. Fourth one is coming soon and their all are gender locked for females only. Each one is stronger then the last one. I am not against the women but I am a guy that likes to create an avatar of himself in the game. Because you know mmorpg?
    What I like in this game is style and combat. But after a while you come back and see more stuff for females and nothing new except like two skills for your class you played.
    So if you don't care that game focuses on female characters more or that community is made out of loli characters. Grab a friend and enjoy this game style and combat it can be fun and enjoyable for new players. For others it's just a let down.

    Less armor = More protection

    As far as the MMORPG goes TERA has the visuals, it's free and has a decent action combat feeling to it enjoy the huge enemies and huge worlds.

    Yet another themepark mmo... Done right way!

    Tera offers you beautiful graphics with immersive actionRPG gameplay. Dodging and blocking is not just a die roll in this game, you actually have to do it. Leveling up feels great, you get skills, stats and access to better weapons. Sad thing is each class has only one type of weapon they can use.

    Best free MMORPG in my view

    I have played dozens of free-to-play MMORPG games and Tera has come the closest for me in the enjoyment I had playing WoW (for pay). Allods is the closes to actually being WoW but wasn't as fun as Tera.

    With Tera the graphics are beautiful, the main story lines are pretty good and the events are fun.

    The bad side is the game does get boring. It's very much a grind...I mean an extreme grind to level. Nearly all quests are "kill this many of that" and the mobs are repetitiously similar; they just look different. You will see the same configuration of mobs over and over.

    The "look" is what I enjoyed the most...the mobs and environments are simply gorgeous. Each zone is themed and unique. I felt they were better than most pay fantasy MMO's. The zones are so big however its easy to get lost and travel can be a huge pain. You can get/buy/earn books that let you teleport to any major city and if you get this you can knock out quests quickly.

    The story lines are pretty decent actually and I found the cinematics and main quests to be the best. If you just played the main story lines and avoided the grind quests you will probably get a better experience and might stick with it longer.

    There are also special quests that you can do daily and earn lots of handy items but they are the most extreme grind quests I have ever experienced. These optional quests are very much "kill 100 of these" and "kill 50 of these" and you will find yourself traveling all over killing mobs over and over.

    They have many events and some are very unique like betting on monster fights. I do think they need more. The events they have are neat but they are always the same. This was a complaint I had with Allods as well.

    One additional annoyance for me is that there is no male version of the gunner character. I'm one that likes to play my gender and so I didn't enjoy playing gunner even though its a fun class. I wish every class had both male and female choices.

    I never spent a dime in the pay store and felt I had everything I needed to enjoy the game. You get lots of costume stuff but the downside is bank and bag storage was a bit tight. You get lots of storage but you have to collect tons of resources and items that attach to your gear. You can reconfigure your gear over and over with these runes depending on how you want to play or what mob you are up against. This requires you to use up bag space caring runes around. (Lots of scrolls too!) Since costume pieces are also stored in the bank or bag its very tight for space. I would rather have a separate place to collect costume pieces but this is often a complaint for most MMORPG's. I find it really fun to collect rare and interesting costume accessories but it just dominates the bag.

    A positive is I found it very easy to earn gold selling stuff. Events make it especially easy to generate thousands of gold in the auction house just selling special food items. I never hurt for gold ever.

    One HUGE downside is the in game community. They are the worst of any MMO I have played. If you ask a question you get horribly made fun of and I found it next to impossible to get anyone to help on quests that required more than one person. Also there are areas where top level players love just killing low levels. So bad that its difficult to get out of cities in many cases. In some areas where it takes a long time to get to a quest if you get killed you have to start over. There are some caves that are so complex that getting killed by a player in one just ruins your night. If you get past the low levels then it does level off and I found that I got attacked much less frequently.

    The community chat was abysmal. It was filled with extremely useless vulgar talk that never seem to have anything to do with the game. I don't know if this has changed but the chat appeared dominated by little kids.

    I do recommend playing this game because heck its free and great fun. When and if you get bored it didn't coast you a dime.

    Serious Review

    My experience in this game:

    4 max level characters , dps , tank and heal perspective, raiding experience, top gear experience (not top gear atm), pvp experience, ONLY f2p stuff (no real money spent). NA server.

    Review:
    Basics , character creation is decent with weird races (looking at you aman) but do expect some of the classic classes (warrior, priest etc). All of the new classes are gender and race locked (brawler, gunner, reaper and soon ninja). Leveling experience takes some time but you can reach max level playing casually in 2 weeks 3 tops and using a buddy code (search the subreddit of tera for codes).

    End game: There is a BIG problem for me with Tera, raids are almost non-existent , they sometimes release 1 but they arent the top place for gear or difficulty. If you expect to raid in this game you should leave right now. Dungeons can be hard (even if they used to be harder) , they consist on knowing the mechanincs and dodging stuff plus doing damage , this means its not as easy to pug (instance matchmaking) through them. Currently enchanting your gear is way too rng dependent and you can expect to spend thousands of gold in this. PVP is entertaining and action combat makes it feel unique (this goes for the whole game too). Expect to farm stuff alot.

    There are multiple events in Tera where you can get gold and costumes, mounts etc.

    F2P vs P2P:
    This game is NOT a p2w game , everything that you can buy in the store is available at the broker or you can trade with other people for gold. Paying gives you some nice bonus but its definitely not mayor stuff or core. You can even buy the paying subscription option in trade broker or trading with other people.


    Cons:
    Grinding.
    Ellin race is a mayor thing and some might be discouraged by this.
    Enchanting is pretty RNG dependent. (dawnfall patch , 3/7/16)
    Raids arent a thing here
    New classes are always op
    Only 2 healer classes atm. (dawnfall patch. 3/7/16)
    Bad optimization
    Content diferences between servers

    Pros
    Combat system
    Difficulty of dungeons
    Constant events
    Mounts are cool and same goes for costumes
    No cash wall for truly f2p people
    Devs mostly listen (NA)


    Conclussion (tl;dr) : Play this game if you dont mind NOT raiding, you dont mind farming/grinding , you dont mind ellin race population. Keep in mind gender and race lock for new classes. If you are gonna try this game search the tera subreddit for buddy codes that help you alot.

    Gorgeous Game, but Boring

    TERA is a gorgeous game, you will be captivated by how everything looks like a typical single player game. It also plays very well, being one of TERA's selling points as a "Action Based Combat" and I cant argue the combat can be fun and a great change of pace from the older games and some new who use the old static style combat.
    I also feel that free to play in the game has been fair, and I do not feel like purchasing something from the shop gives me any benefits other than have some new sexy clothes or some stylish outfits. The races do appear to offer variety as well, having small furry animal looking people to golem looking people.
    Now the biggest problem I have with TERA is how dull questing can be for this game and it was my biggest reason for leaving. By this I mean most quests will ask you to go kill 10 of these mobs or go collect fur from these mobs that you still have to kill. I find it such a shame as this game would be a very good competitor to many other popular mmos such as Archeage, and Guild Wars 2, but from playing the game leveling is a very boring experience in this game.

    It used to be sooooo good

    The old TERA, before it went f2p was an AWESOME game. Not kidding. It took you weeks to reach max. level, or achieve anything. It involved alot of questing and grinding both alike. Bosses were hard, same for dungeons.
    That all changed when it went f2p. At first it was alright, for they didn't change that much. But after a few patches, everything was EASY. It was so dull to get to lv60. It didn't feel like you achieved anything anymore. Dungeons had gotten easier as well. First you had normal dungeons and hard dungeons. And believe me, they were HARD. The first time I went with my guild to Manaya, it took us 2 weeks to figure the entire dungeon out and complete it for the first time.
    Now all you need is lv60, no mechanics or tactics (because apprently this was too hard) and just run through while killing some shit.

    I stopped playing TERA because of this. It used to be a fun and challenging game. Now its just WoW with better graphics.

    Too repetetive

    This game's leveling system is just a one giant grind that never stops, its pay to win and you cant get everything unless you pay with your real money. Honestly though despite those factors you can have alot of fun in this game if you stay away from p2w wall. so i reccomend it if you're not playing wow atm.

    Mixed Feelings

    Tera is...
    A mixed bag.
    It has a few good things about it
    Many servers, both for pve and pvp.
    Pretty gorgeous looking. Its certainly not the BEST looking game I've ever played, but for the seer size of the world it ends up being pretty good looking. Character models honestly need some work. Especially the hair. Good lord.
    Tying in with the above, I can't actually recall a "LAG" moment. I've had some FPS problems in the densest areas, fair enough, but never a moment where the game was just unplayable due to shit servers. Of course, my laptop is decently beefy. If you have a potato you're in the wrong place.
    For an MMO, it has pretty good combat. Not the best. I'd take Vindictus' combat every day of the week and twice on Sundays. But its much better than many other MMOs. Your camera is fluid and follows your mouse without having to hold down one of the mouse buttons. (Like seriously. What is that garbage and why are so many fucking games so damn attached to it. Its an instant quit for me on every MMO I try. Get me out.)
    Your attacks are skillshots and you can very much miss. Its also fairly reactive. (Though the Sorcerer at least could use some work. If nothing else, I'd like her teleport to be attached to the arrow keys rather than the camera to minimize camera whip fuck ups. The Reaper has it! Why can't the Mage classes?)
    Almost every attack has some use.
    It's cash shop is...pretty fair. Maybe I'm just spoiled by it because I came from Vindictus and Nexon's utterly HORRID cash shop, but I've found prices to be pretty fair. Hell, 30$ for an account-wide mount that will never go away and can be reused on every single character ever? Good looking mounts at that? Fuck, take my money. Nexon would charge more for a single untradable costume that might not even have a piece for every body slot.
    But Tera also has it's bad
    At the moment of this writing, at least two classes are either race or gender locked. The Reaper is Elin Exclusive - Which also means female exclusive since Elins are female only. The Arcane Engineer - And if anyone actually calls it the gunner please leave - is restricted to female High Elves and Castanics. Other than the Reaper, I don't really feel this is that big of a deal, but I know a lot of guys - for whatever reason - refuse to play female classes. I don't really see the point or why you would limit your own fun, but to each their own. (I was guilty of it with Mass Effect after all, but that was literally it.)
    The utter lack of character customization. You can get a pretty unique face, but thats it. Theres no height slider. Theres no body customization in the slightest. You can't make yourself fat or more muscular or give yourself bigger (or smaller) boobs or butt or anything of the sort. Its your face and thats it, and even then, you can't even change your damn eye color without it being attached to make-up. There are also a very limited number of (very bland and badly done) hairstyles and hair colors. This is the one area of the game aesthetics-wise that I found completely and utterly lacking. I don't ask for Black Desert in every game, but in an MMO I expect at least SOME options.
    The grind is pretty bad. It feels a LOT better than it did two years ago (or whenever I quit the first time) but that just may be wishful thinking. Time will tell. Thankfully, I'm playing with three friends so the grind is a lot more bearable than it was the first time I played. Seriously, if you can get friends to play with, do so.
    The story is entirely forgettable. In MMOs and RPGs, I usually end up reading through everything and watching every cutscene the first time I play. If I like it enough, I'll watch it each and every time. I had (I think) 27 Mass Effect 2 playthroughs at least and I watched and read everything on every single one.
    I didn't even bother with the story on Tera on even my first playthrough past a certain point. (I'll admit, I haven't gotten to endgame. I quit at 52 on my Sorcerer close to 2 years ago, even though I'm back playing it now.) I literally can't think of a single character's name other than Fraya and thats only because it's similar to Freya and I play Smite. The game's story and characters are utterly forgettable in every way. Maybe it gets better at end game (my friend said that it did) but until then, nope.
    It's cutscenes are atrocious, and I mean that in every sense of the word. Horribly optimized, jaggy, sometimes poor quality...I could go on and on about it. At first I thought it was my laptop giving up the ghost, but both of my friends have recently built very good computers and they reported the same thing. In-engine cutscenes are okay (and I stress the okay) but the pre-rendered ones are horrid. It's REALLY noticeable with how gorgeous the rest of the game is.
    The most memorable moment in the cutscenes of the game that I've seen so far was this gem:
    "Kneel!" says generic General
    /playerCharacter does wave/twirl animation from in-game.
    Oh, and it's originally a Korean game and speech doesn't even remotely match up with lip movements.
    And that pretty much sums up the effort that went into the cuts.
    And that brings me to this one last point.
    The game is utterly generic. Almost everything about it is generic. If you're here for the combat and fairly decent graphics, welcome. Hang up your coat and collect your complementary mustache. You'll be here a while. It'll be a pretty big grind, but thats standard for MMOs.

    YEET!

    After Tera made its jump from subscription based to free2play many were delighted. Not only is it lighter on the wallet, but it also opened up a path for new players to join the game and widen its community.

    That being said, the game is good, probably one of the MMORPG you can play at this moment. Its the game that made Dynamic combat within online RPGs wanted and popular. For obvious reasons, then Tera has the combat that difers from that of most other RPGs. The player always feels engaged and like hes playing a part. You dont just press a button once and your character keeps attacking.

    Though, you could say in the beginning of the game the combat doesnt have much depth, and its just simple button mashing. Once you get further in the game though, playing like that wont get you far. You need to use your abilities right and have a well balanced character, espescially in PvP.


    Graphics wise this game is also one of the best in the market. It looks very good, but not so good that its impossible for half of the earths population to play. The anime like art style might also help, as a lot of easters art styles would probably look weird were they done hyper realisticly.


    A lot of people are still playing the game. This game is not dead and wont have to worry about that anime time soon. I recommend it.

    MMO Killer

    This game was an action mmorpg killer even when it was not F2P, now it's still one of the best. Unfortunately it argueably has some p2w aspects but it's still definitely worth a try. I played it a lot with friends few years back. Nowadays it's still cool, however if you want to play as DPS... Well find yourself a good guild or be prepared for a loooong quenes to dungeons... And as long as BAM fights are cool, without party they may quickly become extremely boring, hard and repetetive for ya !

    Classic problems

    The problem I have with this game is a common problem in every mmorpg I play... It goes by the lines of :
    Grinding Grinding Grinding Grinding Grinding Grinding Grinding Grinding
    And so on, unntil you reach a high enough level to grind in dungeons, and I'll be honest, the quest system isn't much better...Like in old classic mmo's , you'll meet npcs who'll say "Hey you, go and pick 5 flowers for me!" or "Hey you, kill 5 sabertooth and bring me their teeth"( And believe me, there are MANY npcs).

    Great game you should try it.

    Good MMORPG

    This game is a good MMORPG for players who want more action than WoW.
    Quest line is good with very good animations and good story.
    Gameplay: 9/10 because sometimes you don´t have time to relax.
    Graphics: 10/10 this game has good graphics, good textures and refined models
    Community: 9/10 people in this game like to co-operate, they are friendly but you can find some bad players who just swear and don´t want to co-operate.

    Tera is Tera

    Great game, beautiful graphics, great gameplay, fun and competitiveness. The only fault they should stop creating new classes with lock gender and race.

    Good game overall

    An amazing MMO with great graphics back in the day with good gameplay and many features that many other MMOS do not offer. Gameplay wise it's really polished to the ground up and it shows great promises with it's updates that changes the gameplay. Amazing game and you should try it out but it isn't really easy but bare in mind once you get to know what to do it's easy.

    This game deserves more love.

    I don't wanna get too deep with the reviewing, because i can literally write an diploma project on this game. I played this game for straight 2 years I love everything about it. I won't speak about the good stuff, because i'll end up writing 10 pages of text so i'll focus on the bad stuff and let you decide if you can overlook them just like i did and enjoy the game. One of the biggest problem is the Publisher for the game, EU publisher is trash. NA is somewhat acceptable. P2W, honestly this game is the least p2w mmorpg i've ever seen until recently when they added underwear with stats and upgrade materials in the shop and who knows what else they added since i quit, but it wasnt that bad as you think, The underwear gave very little stats and the upgrade material was farmable. Bad optimization, people with high end pcs had problems with this game like in battlegrounds loading people and in the alliance fight (which is big fight 120 people+) lag spikings. It was acceptable for me tbh, i mean i couldnt really participate directly in the heart of alliance fight but i was on the side killin' people so i was cool with that and in battleground while i couldnt see the animation enemies did i could see where they are so i could still attack and kill them. Grind, it's a problem but after playing it for so long i guess i got used to it and im kind of OK .. it probably can still use some tuning down though. People crying that elin race is for pedophiles and in the same time people sayings otherwise. This argument i've heard it so many times im tired of it, play what you want no one forces you to play elin. Speaking about forcing.. now you are kinda forced because new classes that are being added are all gender locked unlike the classes from release which is ofcourse a bad thing for the game imo. These are the bad stuff that comes to my mind maybe im missing something maybe not, but i find them all possible to overlook, because the good stuff about this game is just so much. I highly recommend this game to people looking for free mmorpg that is well rounded between PvP and PvE. Tera actually has one of the more challenging PvEs and best combat which ofcourse makes for great PvP. Seriously the game deserves more love than it gets already.

    One of the most famous around!

    Whenever you talk about action-mmo to someone, the first example you get in mind is TERA, there's nothing to do about it.
    It has a long story behind and is still active giving new content even now, even with new classes (the most recenet is the Brawler, with giant fist weapons) and bases for the guilds.
    The graphic works on unreal engine, which is something that might not look good on someone but that still work really good, especially about the details on the characters (i'm sure everyone of you have seen some female bodies on TERA :P).
    The world is the typical fantasy, with some variation that you will not see around (giant race that looks like mountains or even small animal related race with the fluffy belly).
    If you never tried it, give it a look.

    Excellent game.

    I've been enjoying this game since it first came out. It was a breath of fresh air and it stood apart from every other MMO that wanted to be like WoW. Even now that it is free-to-play, whenever I decided to play it I spring for that premium account. They deserve my money.

    Also I NEVER had any problems with the community, they are super nice and helpful and made killing BAMs a fun experience.

    Gender Locking Loli Classes

    So yeah as the titles says, this game locks every good class behind female characters. If you actually like playing a male class, be ready to be beat to death in the pvp. The last 3 new classes that were added were female only, and they are so over powered, older classes have no chance.

    So be prepared to play as a 12 year old gear, that dresses in lingurie if you want to actually beat people in pvp.

    One of the best F2P MMO's

    This is a wonderful game, great Open PvP (if you don't like OpenPvP, join to PVE servers) great graphics, cool PvE, so much Elites, Dungeons and Bosses. Sometimes it becomes repetitive and boring, you have to grind like others MMO, but when you get middle/cap lvl and take Battlegrounds and others things the game becomes different.
    Regarding the mechanics of the game is very interactive and something different from the conventional, which makes the game more fun.

    The game with the BEST combat in the market!

    Well as the title says i believe that this game has the most interactive and fun combat system in the MMO market right now,The dodges,if you misplace your crosshair you wont hit those are the stuff that's fun about the game but what about the stuff that is not?
    The missions in the game are no fun at all its even boring do that go there kill those and repeat and well you can do the missions to level up or you can GRIND like most people would do, the whole point of the game is the end game with hard bosses and fun challenges,even the pvp is nice, BUT and its a big BUT if you don't like the whole grinding stuff i wouldn't recommend trying to grind to level up just do the main quest line but you'll see that it gets tedious after sometime.
    In conclusion if you don't wanna grind to level up you're gonna have a bad time.

    EridianX's TERA review

    Tera, one of the more enjoyable MMO's out there for me. The combat in the game and the beautiful graphics are the main selling points to this game. The combat is action focused with dodge abilities, stuns, and just hack and slash type gameplay mixed in with MMO skills and class roles. It has healers, tanks, damage dealers, the classic roles in any fantasy RPGMMO. Of course, the combat and graphics aside, the game is painfully average in most other areas in my experience. The story is one that I could not really follow at all, as it is given to us in little quest tabs when talking to NPCs and the occasional cut scene. The cut scenes and voice acting are one of the points the game falls flat on. The voice acting is not very good, certainly there are some that are, heard a few familiar voices here and there that i know from other games, but most of it is fairly average. And the lips of the characters almost never line up with what is being said. The quest system is also just the same things over and over again, even the story quests. In every area there are quests that ask you to kill X amount of these enemies, harvest these plants, talk to this person, rinse and repeat. Every single area has pretty much the exact same quests just in a different region and difficulty level. Now, though the quest system and story are bad, the raids in the game are pretty fun. The dungeons can be fairly unique in their looks, though the content within is the normal MMO type dungeon, the settings within are pretty cool looking, as are the bosses. One of the worst parts of the game I think is probably the community. At one point I had to turn off global chat simply because of all the people within saying horrible things. There is a character call the Elin, which is pretty much a little girl with animal ears and tales. You can imagine what kinds of horrible things are getting said about them. Though that is not to say the people you meet to do content with are like that, it's simply global chat where anyone anywhere in the game can talk in that gets the weirdos. Overall the game has great action combat, amazing graphics, beautiful world design, varied classes and races to play as, but horrible quests and story content, and above average raid dungeons and mix community depending on what chat tab you are in and what time of day it is. It's a big file size to download so unless action combat and nice graphics and world design are all you need, I think you should research the game a little on youtube in order to see exactly everything it has to offer before you spend hours downloading it only to find you don't enjoy it.

    Tera is a game for its own

    You either like it or you dont!

    It has beautiful graphics, combat differs on each charakter! I wanted to play as a tank but the lancer (if i remember him correctly) is so slow in his movement and skills that it feels like you control... yeah... a tank ^^ literally.

    I stopped playing around lvl 30 i think and i stopped because it was boring. Its not challenging in any way, its nothing special, its... as i said you like it or you dont. Give it a try and you ll find out.

    Good MMO but lacks the hook

    A good mmo. Everything about it is good but nothing is great.

    Hard t find a good guild, fun to mess about with friends but the same old grind can get old fast. A lack of a great story and seems like they focussed too much on a run here kill this run there kill this and there wasn't something that made you stop and be like WOW this is jaw dropping. The combat mechanics isn;t anything new and macro spamming makes the game easier but there is a lack of a Hook to the game.
