    To complete combo break the shenanigans, I find that Human males look absolutely beast in this game compared to other games. My lancer is such a badass. I love playing that guy. They look like realistic super heroes.

    So gonna be playing this when it becomes free. I got an account but I just felt 「No subscription based games!」 after WoW. Although, I don't know why they went free over b2p? I mean buy the game-play forever. Weird to go from buy + sub to free. xD

    A fair assumption would be that they will add content down the road that you have to buy in the shop to gain access to, making it free is more than likely a means for them to increase the population to keep the game alive for the once that want to pay for it and in the process attract more sporadically paying customers as well, something the current model (on paper at least) is well designed for.

    Here's a link to the Trial FAQ : https://tera-support.enmasse.com/app..._restrictions?

    From what I can tell it's not time limited but has restrictions. The f2p conversion isn't completed yet so not all the details are done yet but I would think that trials would be able to convert and play to the f2p when it comes out (No exact date yet, just February) since trials can currently upgrade to the subbed version.

    I'd say make an account at Enmasse (the US version of the game) and play the trial for now.

    I really want to play Tera, but my god the questing just makes me want to blow my brains out.

    I bought it on launch and only got to like level 20 before wanting to kill myself. I have no clue how you make questing worse than pre cata WoW, but the devs managed it. The combat isn't really the saving grace for me, but it's nice though.

    I may give Tera another go because it's going f2p so I don't have to shell out $15 a month plus the game.

    I'm currently playing SWTOR, which doesn't seem to be going anywhere. At least the F2P restrictions in Tera will be reasonable and won't remind you that your a piece of shit and need to sub every fucking minute. Just goes to show you how much EA cares about SWTOR being competitive.

    Most people, myself included, agree with you. It takes a magician to take such an engaging combat system, such a gorgeous game, and make it feel like torture. I think in small doses, maybe a level ever few days as you feel like you want to have the action combat, will help make the leveling more palatable.

    Since we don't have to pay for this experience, chances are higher a lot of returning players will continue to play this game for a while.

    Well, cash shops seem to work really well so yeah. Throw in some expansions too. I thought it was totally worth the box price though.

    Don't get use to a controller it's bad once you get to higher levels lack of character controls (abilities) with the controller.

    I didn't make it to max level first time around. The combat is fun but it can only carry the game so far when the quest system is so bland I don't think it's changed much but meh you don't feel as obligated to play consistently so you can break it up by playing other games and coming back. I just logged in and my first reaction was...How Play Game?

    Quite honestly the quest complaint is becoming a pretty tedious argument.
    Going from WoW, EQ, SWtoR, etc. I never really got the sense of "these quests are different!". They're still the same things.

    It's about 20 to 30 mins in length after it's done you go back to lvl1 and start on newbee island.

    If you've done it once I know you can skip it on future toons don't remember for the first though.
    Shocked. I loved it. I like the fact you can try a mid-level class right away, so if you don't like, say a Sorc, you can just re-roll instead of investing the time to get a Rogue to L70 like I did in WoW, or a Warrior to L40 in Rift, to just realize it's not gonna improve.

    I also don't understand how people can call TERA's questing bland when it's pretty much the same in EVERY other MMO. Even GW2 is just a ---t ton of " Kill X of Y" quests minus the X and given a bar to fill.

    One thing I really liked about SWTOR were those extra multi stage quests that were completely optional but awarded a decent amount of experience for completing all stages.

    If more MMOs could incorporate those and then use the mandatory quests to do different and exciting stuff I think the genre would improve as a whole.

    Yeah that was their intentions but for some people walking into this combat system and starting at level 20 created a WTF situation for players and then getting bumped back to level 1 when it's all over and done. I recall my first time I wasn't prepared and then came across the BAM I had nothing hot keyed and I didn't even really look at my skills so I was just puzzled and that's partly my fault I didn't expect to be flung into the heat of the moment from the get go in a game.

    Except the proof is in the pudding so to speak. Plenty of people pointed to that exact reason and the lack of an end game as to why the game was god awful.

    I think maybe one unconscious reason for why this feels more tedious is because of the amount of attention you have to give it. Sure it's go here and kill these, but you can't 'really' do this and watch TV, or think about something else, or talk on the phone...it's all attention, all the time. There aren't any auto attacks, many quest objectives are multiple enemies and not just run and gun one at a time, etc.

    So it's almost like the reason why it starts out more fun and is a better gameplay is actually what harms it in the end.

    It's never what the quests actually are, but how it is implemented and accomplished. A lot of people feel that TERA's implementation was exhausting. I completely agree.

    Yeah, it was a bit overwhelming to be given a full bar of skills with no sense on how to use them. I still found it fun and didn't mind the drop to L1 after.

    It was an odd choice to add it, and I remember Gamebreaker had it on it's list of like 2805708572 things it hated with this game. Gary was SO horrible to TERA, and after playing it, I just keep thinking "why the ---k did he hate this game? This is better than TSW, and he even made a pilot show for that game..."
