    So are those 35GB download worth uninstalling Aion from my computer for this game?

  2. Raiveris on February 5, 2013

    Hey , does somebody play on EU already, if so, how i should lunch it? I have registered, updated adn then it shows me to purschase Tera or redeem a code. Any ideas what is it?

    WTF?? I decided to plunge in after some youtube commentarys. To really get a feel…WOAH! WTF? IT runs middle graphic settings with far distance, no lag, super smooth and great combat all on my wiifii HD500 mobility card…and servers are packed! The install was half a day, but the game is stable as fewk!
    No server crash despite the F2P launch inrush. No crash if I alt tab (like most games) – Looks like AION but runs like a dream! I do not understand, it is the same engine as AION, PFFTT wow, I had no idea I can run this engine on my pc. This is great! The game itself is super! AION like character creation. OPen class and race and sex selection! I created an awesome little ferret like guy.
    So far the game is a blast! Almost level 10. Ill cry later if this grind kicks in, but if it stays interesting, direct, and engaging, it is awesome.
    YOu start a tutitorial as a level 20 character if you WANT, not forced, and it teaches you basics with locked skill bar and set of lvl 20 skills. DONT get discouraged if you think the level 1 – 20 experience, it is just a small tutorial zone, after it is over, you port to the noob area and at level 1, skill bar unlocked, and just a handful of level 1 skills.
    Combat is good, like vindictus, but implemented in open world, WAY better than RaiderZ. RaiderZ is actually target based as you can “LOCK” on your target. RaiderZ also feels clunky and enemy attacks are super questionable. Tera has it down.
    These “first look” videos did not do it justice. I actually logged in to troll it…but I am impressed by the imerssion, social aspect, and gameplay. I have not gone to nitty gritty details, but every interface I open does not really seem that deep. It is JUST deep enough. If you are looking for maze like skill trees, tons of LoTRO like menus to put little points here and there on a char…this is not it.
    This game is chreate the eye candy, play in the eye candy, heres the quests go for it! The story is solid enough to enjoy it, and no deep lore that requires 5 books to read to understand. I was afraid this would be a mob grind fest, but they are placed really well out, and player scale model vs world, is perfectly balanced to feel special in it. AION kind of had this same feel, but the gimpy ass flying, and stupid stand and spam skills took edge of allot of it. This world feels FLUID, a little alive as players run around and story pushes on, but well put together;
    RaiderZ is a bad example of a similiar game. RaiderZ is a game with eye candy, and open combat, but just stupid and close mob placement and the engineering of it felt very mchanical, and not fluid or challenging. Just “this is point A – must farm to point B”. TERA could turn into that soon, but so far if it does, the fluidity of combat, especially for me a priest, is superb!
    Ok…enough ass kissing on this game. Now…I will be back if and when I get screwed by the bad…please no. I already uninstalled Secret World for this, as Secret dissapointed me on every level.

      Agree with u, like Aion too. Only correcting: Aion uses Cry engine for graphics, which was pretty cool on 2004 when Far Cry 1 launched, but already dated on 2009 when Aion launched. Tera uses Ureal Engine 3, its a great graphic engine from 2006 but has been update to be used even on next gen consoles. Both on max settings, Aion is way under Tera regarding graphics.

    Cant connect in to server… Only in server where very
    not much players..

  5. Eon on February 5, 2013

    Thanks Magicman for the info.
    Running on the Euro servers now. Apparently En Masse only allows IP froms the 4 regions, where the one on gameforge only blocks the mentioned countries. So any countries not mentioned are able to play on the gameforge Euro servers.

  6. SiiKGaming on February 5, 2013

    Hey Magic, do you think it would be possible if I can ever play with ya later on? I’m starting and I know nobody. :/

  7. EdmondDantes on February 5, 2013

    Anibody ho can tell me when Tera will start on Steam?

  8. RecateReel on February 5, 2013

    I kinda prefer mob grinds then quest grinds but i don’t hate quest grinds though, it just restricts who you can play with very greatly when mob grinds mmo tends to give you a lot of freedom and if have bonus grand exp for party grinding with you. With the streams of quest grind mmos coming in, I’m seriously gonna miss mob grind mmos ๐Ÿ™ , grindings normal for me.
    Mob grinds = Freedom to make your own goals,
    Quest grinds = You are busy ALL the time!
    but whichever works your boat, I’ll still give this game a shot anyway.

    • Magicman on February 5, 2013

      Interesting! What’s REALLY weird with me is that I HATE mob grinds but LOVED FFXI….yeah, I’m very weird like that lol!

      • ZhaoYun on February 5, 2013

        its not weird i am like u too and if its still weird well u not alone if that conforts u ๐Ÿ˜›

  9. Eon on February 4, 2013

    Hi anybody knows is enmasse Tera still IP blocked? Hopefully no IP block in Gameforge. I`m from asia.

    • Magicman on February 4, 2013

      Here’s the current info regarding IP Blocks for both North America servers and Europe servers:

      The North American servers are region blocked. This means that if you are in North America, South America, Europe, and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia) you can play on En Masse Servers. Russia is IP blocked as well.

      The Europe servers have the following blocks:
      The following countries wonโ€™t be able to access our Frogster servers for TERA in Europe: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Byelorussia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine.

      This is the most up to date information I was able to pull together so of course things could change.
      Thanks!

    Now what magicman didnt show was Mount Tyrannus which is PvP server, I got pked so many times trying to do them Kumas Quests on my Baraka. Also Quick note that Some of the Classes have some and i specify some differences in skill dmg on players Depending on level and gear. For those wanting to try out the Open world PvP in Tera i suggest you keep clear of lvl 60s getting bored and just literally killing you over and over, usually they wont follow you to another channel, so thats a good way to get rid of that trouble. As far as the game being compared to RaiderZ i suggest Tera over RaiderZ, Tera is not a Pay to Win game like RaiderZ. If anyone wants to level you can message me on Garus.Nightswift or Mr.Torgue

    • Cacalips on February 5, 2013

      When F2P first announced I researched the official TERA forums, there was a huge petition for paying players to camp and kill all new F2P players in open pvp and make their questing life hell LOL!

      • ZhaoYun on February 5, 2013

        i am not sure if u talkin about raiderz EU or US but the us version is not pay to win(at least when i played)idk if it is now but it wasnt all i had to do is daily dungeons and thats it easy gold i even bough a horse from market for 500 gold(a permanent cs horse)like 5-6 people have this horse and i believe me and maybe 1-2 more people are the only ones who didnt cs for it anyways game isnt pay to win when i played cause u could buy easily cs items if they were sold in market all u had to do is be patient as far as cacalips comment its true(at least in NA version)p2p players would camp and wait for u to come out and just kill u(which is why MM i believe played in the pve server)

    nooooo!!! ip block!!!
    sad to say been waiting for it, but… but.. but…

  12. ThunderGrave on February 4, 2013

    Great show… and I’ve created an Elin yesterday, so… make of that what you will. I made the character mostly ’cause my PC is meeting just above the minimum requirements to play it the game, but on the lowest of lowest settings, it plays pretty freaking smooth. There’s the occasional lag spike when looking into the distance, but that’s just about it. All in all, the game’s a lot of fun and I would enjoy playing with you or any of the mmobomb cast on a game (Not this one), such as S4League, Cabal Online, etc etc etc. The list goes on…(20+ games) SO! Have a nice day and if ya see this comment and reply to it, then thank ya very much!

    PS: I’m a dude, not a pervert… Like there’s a difference nowadays.

    • MelonCider on February 4, 2013

      He didnt call anyone that roll a elin a pervert. He just said if you find them attractive then you will be called a pervert/pedo bear in game. And many people in global chat emit this because they talk about raping an elin and other nasty things.

      • ThunderGrave on February 4, 2013

        I’m not saying that he did. I’m just saying that I choose Elin and I’m not a perv for it. That was the implication I got from global chat, so I figured I should just throw it on in there, like it actually matters. Besides, who cares what people in global chat think, especially if they have nothing to do but troll all day long.

    • Trypzi on February 5, 2013

      “I made the character mostly โ€™cause my PC is meeting just above the minimum requirements to play it the game”

      Ooooh it makes sense now, lolwut?

      Elins make this an asian game, i do find it very awkward that males play an elin, which is just a little girl in a skirt.
      Especially when there are so many other cool characters to choose from.

      • ThunderGrave on February 5, 2013

        Well, consider this. Playing a character that has a smaller body mass than other characters can save a few extra seconds of my comp processing data. Besides, you say skirt as if all classes of Elins wear them. Newsflash, they don’t, especially if you picked a warrior like I did.

        Also, why does it matter whether you choose any kind of race in the game? I don’t have to pick humans, or any other race if I don’t want to. Pick who you want and play the game. Don’t be a complete idiot saying that just cause your a certain gender, you can’t pick the “alternate” characters like Elins.

  13. ZhaoYun on February 4, 2013
