TERA Rising is a free to play 3D action MMORPG based on a non-targeting system, where players will have direct control over their character's combat. Unlike traditional MMORPGS which use auto-attacks and tab targeting, TERA allows a player to aim their spells and attacks manually. This allows for greater flexibility and much more dynamic combat.
The game features some impressive visuals, with towering detailed beasts to fight and a fantastic spell variety. Beyond the typical MMORPG questing (which the game features quite a lot of), players can engage in 5 man dungeons and participate in Guild PvP.
TERA also features a very unique and intricate political system, which allows a whole zone to vote on a player to become matriarch. This player is able to access rare patterns and set tax prices on vendors throughout the zone. Players can choose to also fight for control over a zone through PvP arenas.

If I had to give this game a rating between 1-5 stars, I would probably give it a 3.5-4.5. Why? Due to the glitches and freezes is why I took .5 off, the rude/mean people is another one, and last because it is kind of hard to level up after 65, especially if you don’t have any money to pay for the passes,
even if they are on ‘sale’, which I find to be pricey. Not to mention, they don’t have any coupons/discounts or a variety of game ‘packs’ to choose from. The could use another update and provide some different levels of TC purchases or a 2x a year half sale or something. Maybe an incentive for purchasing TC could be a free 7 day bronze/silver/gold BP or a free level up. Just throwing out some ideas.
You know, it could be worse...you could be dumping $$ into Anthem.

I have a power pc and can run every game I own easily 120+ fps on ultra graphics. Tera is the only game I currently have on it that I can't get passed 28 fps while sitting still and go down as low as 4 fps in a dungeon. It's terrible. 3/10

I've been playing Tera for a while now. Got 65 on 4 of my characters, got best gear on one of them, cleared all there is clear, got the costumes I wanted, saved gold for the next update, and all that good stuff, so you can be safe about trusting me on this one.
Leveling: Questing is terrible, so, even if you're new, just don't do it. It's slow, it's cripplingly painful and nothing makes sense. Look up some guides for fast-leveling, and you can easily hit 65 in sub 20 hours, even if you're new. My fastest time was 12 hours, and I'm quite "proud" of it. For the most part, leveling is fun though, especially if you're interested in your class. Getting XP boosts isn't that expensive, and there are some really good zones when you can storm through 10-15 levels in around 2 hours. So don't worry, getting to the end game won't take you too long.
Endgame: I want to instantly jump into the meat of this game. End game is ... sigh. This is where, as of recently, Tera is really dropping the ball. Dungeons and raids are literally faceroll type, and aside from maybe 1-2 endgame dungeons, the entire thing is just laughable. Obtaining 2nd best gear in the game is a joke, and it's pretty much the furthest you need to go in the gear progression since it'll be enough to clear all end game content. Getting the best gear in the game, and enchanting it to the max, requires a hefty investment of gold (borderline million), and that is if you're at least averagely lucky. Is there stuff to do once you reach end game? Sure. You'll spend about 2-3 months gearing your character, and each new dungeon will be interesting to you. There are nearly weekly events which are good way to make gold/easy levels/items etc.. There are a lot of players (dunno about EU), but the community is so-so. Some are helpful, some are ... less so. It's recommended you join the guild and look for ones that want players above 45-50, because they're most-likely to help you with end game content. In game store isn't really P2W but it is Pay to speed things up because you can't grind for months, as it allows you to either buy costumes and sell them for large amounts of gold on TB, scrolls, or even enchanting materials.
Despite all this though, Tera is still extremely fun, especially if you're in a social guild. Sure, you'll get bured out from content in 3-4 months (less than 1 if you're a hardcore player), but even then there are things to do. PvP is not really there just yet, but with the soon-to-come update, I suspect there'll be far more PvP players out there. Getting your character to look the way you want him/her is really exciting, and you won't have any qualms about spending a lot of gold on that one item over enchanting your gear. If you still have doubts about playing the game, or aren't sure which server/race/class to pick, feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to reply.
Good luck :)
To those who want to play the game otherwise. It is very fun I really love the graphics and the fact that you have to aim in order to hit monsters. Another fun feature is that you can dodge some of the attacks that monster throw your way! The story quests are interesting and it tells you were to pick them up at so you are not hunting around for them. The character creation and the classes available are nice and you have a wide variety to choose from. My fav so far are the reapers and the sorcerers. If you are looking for a fast paced action mmorpg then this one the one I would recommend just be prepared for the people in the game. You find some nice people that still play but you have to dig for em.
I can honestly say that Tera has one of the fairest business models i have encountered with, by that i mean there are only fashion items in cash shop. You can really be in par with other players without spending a single penny, but still tera club membership is still advisable, for lower dungeon cooldowns, atlass to freely teleport around from whatever location and no auction listing fee, but definitely not necessary.
Graphics are just stunning. If you are a fan of anime style then this game is your dreams come true.
Gameplay is rlly innovative and it makes grinding more interesting, but it gets repetitive very fast coz it still turns into a button mashing at later levels. And skills that do the biggest damage roots you in the place which can be rlly frustrating.
Classes are well balanced in pvp, but still there are some classes that are easier to play than others, but i didnt have any problems with that tho i wasnt interested in pvp too much.
Now lets talk about flaws coz there are plenty.
Poorly optimazed engine.... tho its not nearly as bad as it was on launch (I talk about constantly getting stuck in doors or walls, fps all over the place, getting killed by group of ppl even not seeing them coz their models load only after you are dead), but still its poorly optimazed. Even now you can be in 1 zone with loads of thing on the screen and have 80+ fps and in the other zone where there is barely anything on your screen you have 20 fps -_-
Endgame is just lacking... the endgame is just poor, raids are laughable (reskinned dungeon with 1 boss and just scaled up HP or brainless kill on sight bosses). Most fun i had with HC dungeons coz they are rlly hard and its easier to make static group of 5 ppl. And you dont even have to clear any of those dungeons or raids to get top geared, coz 98% of the gear is BOE (bind on equip) so you can buy it from guyz who can clear it without dropping a sweat, that is if you have some cash (havent been online for like 5 months, maybe it has been changed), i made loads of cash that way :D
And PLS, PLS dont play tera if you pc or internet connection cant handle it, you will just get frustrated of constant dying. You cant do endgame (even there is not much of it) if you have below 10fps or ping over 200ms, hell if you play warrior and have ping over 60ms forget it, you are useless you will just lag around not being able to hit anything coz their gameplay is extremely fast. Everything there requires quick reflexes, at higher level you have to evade boss moves that give you less than 1 second to react or you will insta die and in 90% of the time its a guaranteed wipe if 1 group member dies and its not possible with high ping or rlly low fps.
Overall if you havent played Tera yet, you have to try it, but dont go full ham on it if you pc or internet cant handle it.
reminds me of the league of legends LCS team fnatic
so if by any chance you play lol my name is above
that file size is stupidly big, unless you had a great connection torrent is the ONLY way you could download this and even then it'd take a long time. my download speed tops out at around 180kb+ so this game would take weeks, if not months, to download via that torrent (forget the direct download which would easily timeout before getting anywhere close to 1%). unless this is like the most awesome MMO ever concieved (which i seriously don't think it is) there is no way i'd ever suggest such a massive game to anyone.
and today i was going to play it but
when i clicked on play it said: the client has stopped working
what do i have to do?
IGN ---> Sala.Cious
I started out with a plan: to reach endgame without spending any money whatsoever on EMP (the "cash shop" currency) and I managed to achieve that goal after painstaking efforts (funny how I actually became better gear/money/skill wise than some people who spent hundreds of dollars upgrading their stuff). It was a true F2P game until the Wonderholme patch arrived. Reaching endgame, obtaining the best weapon in the game at the time (Visionmaker), it was hard work because to be the best, you had to achieve a certain level of synergy with the people you run dungeons and battlegrounds with. All Tera is now, however, is whoever has the largest bank account and is willing to spend endless amounts of money on the game will be able to get the best gear and beat those who have spent months becoming familiar with their class. Skill doesn't matter anymore because the stats of the recently released gear is far too overpowered and far too easy to get. Being easy to get, means there is no money to be made unless EMP is purchased (for enchanting purposes) and then, it becomes impossible to enchant when somebody is being an F2P player (like I was). In my guild, there were some who spent upwards of $2000 to get the best gear, leaving somebody like myself in the dust. I wasn't going to spend that kind of money on a GAME (I didn't have $2000 to waste anyways) and with no avenues for making money by PLAYING the game, I was going nowhere.
Currently, the most overpowered class BY FAR is the Slayer (a nerf is now an absolute necessity for this class) due to their invulnerability to any form of CC while using a skill. Hell, they even have a skill that prevents them from being CC'd for 5 seconds (this just screams overpowered).
If you want to give this game a go and find that you're still playing at level 60, join a guild called Wonderland. Being a former officer of Wonderland, I can say that they're nice people (some are nice in their own "special" way) and I know that they will take care of the less hardcore players out there.
I would avoid this game at all costs unless you just don't mind playing alone.
If you want to play TERA though you better join the NA server published by Enmasse. Gameforge(publisher in EU) has destroyed many people including me, i was accused of botting/hacking without doing anything and when i asked for information they arrogantly told me that they won't provide any information and that the decision is final and permanent without any warning. I believe they didn't know themselves why did they ban me, they just got some reports because sometimes i was camping ores and plants(which is not illegal of course).
#1 doesn't run so well without a powerful machine
#2 combat is a bit clunky and the camera is an asshole (personal exp just just found it bothersome)
#3 Cooldowns in action based games are like some jerk Sneezing on your pizza . they are not needed in action based games regardless of weather or not its an Action /RPG game .Dragons Dogma is an action RPG it didn't have cooldowns because its lame and makes no sense.These sorts of games need to be free wielding and exciting not full of pointless limitations that dont need to be there . Skills should be executed via key and or button combinations like you might find in fighting games or old school action titles like devil may cry such as" attack , dash , rapidly press attack" to do a rapid thrusting skill . Some games like DFO and Dragonica online have these sorts of commands as alternatives to hotkeys and instant executions and i have always felt it suits this Genre better but again just my thoughts .DFO and Dragonica still had Cooldowns though and to me thats just not cool.
Pros (yes there are pros ppl im not all about the negative)
#1 really nice visuals IF you can run the game on decent settings .
#2 decent atmosphere game feels open and makes you want to explore your surroundings at least it did for me.
#3 Pretty interesting character classes, not SUPER unique but not super typical either and the races were pretty interseting as well .
#4 Gamepad support , this is a big deal for me because i absolutley despise keyboard /mouse based controls its nice to have the option at the very least .
Were i able to run the game on nicer settings without turbo lag from the pits of el diablo i would have more to say but i refuse to play a game that i cant run smoothly on anything but the lowest settings. Sorry but its like riding a tricycle with 2 flat tires and a broken pedal while all your friends speed away on dirt bikes leaving you in a cloud of dust and exhaust to cough and curse your existence.
Its worth checking out if your looking for a game and i would probably recommend it but again thats IF you can run it above the lowest settings.
This game just put me to sleep. And what's with the half-naked female children class?
The graphics are good, but they don't really know how to use it (the surface has a plasticy look). To me, at least. I guess if you think it's got "high-end" graphics, good for you. But to me, I've seen better in community mods for Fallout.
And the outfits are ATROCIOUS. I mean, just really ugly clothing.
And BEWBS. That's this games selling point. Best way to make money? Take your half naked chick to the center of a marketplace and dance. People will circle and give you money while they FAP.
God, this game is BAD. Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong! I was excited and got it as soon as it released.
Stopped playing it a week later. Such a weak game.
1. That happens often, so just re-launch the launcher.
2. If you modified some files in the game (i.e elin texture files) it may not recognize the version of the game you are running and therefore not start it.
come on... how to instal this game
Goinna try it out.
1. When you are a free player what is limited? I mean like level wise and areas.
2. I want to try the game for a while and see if it is a game that can keep me interested. But later on would i be able to upgrade i guess you could call it and pay (only if i get serious of course). Would i be able to keep my characters and equipment?
Right off the bat, the graphics are beautiful. It's highly recommended by players to play TERA on a computer with as good of a graphics card as you can get, so you can put the settings to their maximum. Everything is bright and smooth and even the details in the clouds are breath-taking. The sentiment of beauty is certainly not lost here.
There is no racelocked or genderlocked classes, and you can mix up any combo you desire. Some people might advice a certain race to one class, due to a specific racial skill, but nothing is absolutely necessary. I chose to be an Aman berserker, which is a brilliant combo on the field as I've learned.
The game offers two options upon character creation: Island of Dawn and prologue. The prologue is the tutorial, and is very helpful for new players of the game needing to learn the key bindings. You can choose to play through that to learn the backstory, or you can jump right into the Island of Dawn, or as it's fondly referred to as, newbie island.
Gameplay is hack-and-slash, which surprised me since I was expecting the standard point-and-click targeting dynamics. The combat flows wonderfully, though you do have to make sure to watch your skills, otherwise it might appear that they aren't functioning, when in reality you're spamming them while you're using a basic attack (they cannot be done at the same time). It's very easy to get the hang of all this, though, and mowing through mobs becomes second-nature very quickly.
Quests are well-coordinated, for the most part, and the progression moves from outpost to outpost, or town to town, with every set of quests finished. There is no running back and forth long distances to turn in quests, if they're done in the order they're presented. The quest log is helpful, and needed items or mobs can be easily highlighted on the minimap. Quest mobs will also have an exclamation point by their name if they're involved in a current quest (yellow for basic and red for story, respectively).
The community of the game would require an entirely different review, from what I've seen, but they don't bite. It's very easy to make parties while playing, and this is often done to save a lot of time and frustration if a large group all needs the same boss mob or escort mission.
All and all, TERA is absolutely fantastic. I enjoy playing it and would recommend everyone try it out. The f2p model they have going is fantastic and I look forward to the updates and cash shop items the mods will bring later.
Your the one losing out, because this game blows other MMO's away. make sure you have a good enough PC (core i3-7, 4+GB RAM, and modern video card) Your toaster that has been running WoW for the last 8 years wont cut it lol.
