First Impression of Tera Online? - Page 4

post #31 of 91
You were in World Boss? My guild was at war with your guild lol. My guild was Ragnorak.

The questing system is not revolutionary or does it attempt to be as GW2 is claiming. The only thing different about this game is the combat. As you progress killing X amounts of mobs is pretty fun. The mobs behave differently and I find each encounter is different than the last. Did you run the Manor dungeon? The Manor dungeon was a lot better than Bastion. Bastion was pretty face roll. The last boss in the manor dungeon was pretty fun took us about 5-10 minutes to kill him. He would summon adds and you had to train him and stuff. Fun mechanics. More fun in that boss fight than I have had in a MMO for awhile.

Haha, that's awesome. I only managed to find and kill one guy from your guild. But that was on my Lv19 Lancer, not my Lv27 Archer.

Who plays MMOs for the questing? I don't get while people complain about it? You pretty much just use quests as a grind to get to max level so you can finally play the game for realzies.

And btw, have you played D3? I've been playing the beta on and off for a while now and to tell you the truth, it seems like the game is getting worse and worse as they keep patching it. I've lost all hope for D3 man.

As said though, what shines through in Tera are the graphics and the combat system. They managed to make every job fun to play and all very useful in their own ways. The PvP system is also really sweet and a lot of fun.

Swtor Fans? GW2 fanboys? The truth is we all just quest to hit level cap. If we could pvp to level cap we would probably do that instead. It is about what is after level cap. The combat system is fun which = Fun PvP and I believe that will sustain Tera. No I'm not in beta for D3. I was going to get it but everyone I know that are into games who played it are staying away from it.

I prefer gameplay over questing or storylines. People who raid in WoW dont play for the daily quests. If i wanted a story id read a book.

New game, same crap. Guild Wars 2 is the only thing that looks promising, since its different than the mainstream MMO.

Before I got into this review I’ll just give a brief history of my MMO experience. I played WoW about 2 months after release until this present day. I played more hardcore during Vanilla and on and off after BC because I got married. Other MMO’s that I got into were LOTRO, AOC and also Aion. I won’t go into too much details but those are other MMO’s I have played in depth and will use them as a reference. I don’t consider myself an Elitist or Hardcore gamer. I enjoy games and play them the best I can. I’m just breaking down this review as whatever comes up to my mind so there probably will not be a whole lot of organization.


Thanks for the in-depth review bro, +rep


I watched the angryjoeshow about this game and thought the characters look real cool.

what I dont like is the talent system and the performance according to what you said. same skills for different classes is messed up, but then you're not sure about that so I will try not to think about that too much. Performance is also a big thing for MMOs, you can;t be lagging and expect to win a duel / team fight. Lag will piss you off even in games like dota


though I was mostly drawn to how beautiful the girl characters are tongue.gif
I dont know, their outfit looks way cooler than guild wars 2 and tera also has more races

but i like how faces look in GW2 more

I dont know, will have to see how it goes

Thanks. I missed typed. I meant all characters of the same class have the same skills. If you are a tank/lancer you have the same skills as all other lancers. The difference comes from what you glpyh. Skills than can become stronger are allow you to move when doing those skills etc.

Did you play the game Xion? Yeah it's the same game as layout or format but the gameplay is different. Don't believe the masses that are saying it is a WoW clone. The gameplay seperates it from other MMO's out there. Tera never said it was re-inventing the Genre like Gw2 is saying.

ahh....i get you now

well thats all good then, I mean it would be ok if all the skills are there for you to learn but you can't learn all of them it would be fine, but if skills vary for a certain class in different races, there would easily be imbalances

not every developer can stand balancing their one game for a whole year, and even post launch


cough SC cough cough biggrin.gif


I haven't never played a western MMO before, not even WoW, all I've been playing were some asian ones when I was young (actually played one just 3 years ago, heh), and I started being attracted to western RPGs these 7-8 years or so

and MMO are not so different from RPGs, so I figured if I like RPGs so much, and these MMO characters are looking so dam fine, why not?

This game is actually quite different from any MMO I've ever seen hit the NA Market, that's for sure man.

If you guys wanna check out the game or see what it's like for the NA release... I've been recording and posting videos from my gaming thus far from CBT1 and CBT2. http://www.youtube.com/catseateggs
