    is it out yet?

  2. 1stDragon on February 14, 2013

    So next will be RIFT ? xD

  3. Cacalips on February 11, 2013

    So, It is one week I have been studying the servers and getting feed back in both US and EU.
    The verdict is in. They have negineered the game to put you in a Pay to LOG IN model for the free 2 players.

    You will wiat anywhere from 30min to 2hours each evening (peak times) and all weekends. The time goes up the later you join.
    The servers have a rating of base or low, middle, and high server populations. IF you are a foundry member, you can get in first on low to high populations. IF you are in the club, you can get in at mid to high.

    IF you log in around 5-6pm as a F2P you have a wait of 30 min 700 people. Then 7-9 1000 people and one hour, then 2K + and over 2 hours wait just until 11PM. Weekends are 2 hour waits 2K people (so they say) noon until midnight.

    Odd, this was not the case at launch. I created a character and play on peak time and hit level 16. Now I am locked out of the game unless I wait. And you are going to love the client time out after 15min waiting, so after you wait 60 min. You will have been DCd for wating and thrown back in the line….
    I have created an alt but I really nejoyed the community I was with and gained a guild and friends that are waiting for me. MY alt is a “low” server that was added….in fact, in response to this problem, the FAIL company made 3 new “international servers”…all PvP. It is the ultimate troll. ‘Stuck out of your PvE server? here, try a PvP and gank troll fest. Sorry we did not miror a server for your region, we fail to focus on client needs.” SSeriously MY server has never hit HIGH, only medium, but we have to pay, as mentioned above, to get in. All they need to do to balance this, if it is not pay to log in gimik, is mirror the TOP 3 POPULATED servers: Mirror 1, 2, and 3 and done. All the others are marked “LOW”, so why create 3 new PVP and ignore the regions that need it the most??? YOU GUESSED IT

    P2L = Pay to Login. Honostly, bravo, never thought greed could get so low in gaming.

    • Inflictious on February 11, 2013

      ” P2L = Pay to Login. Honostly, bravo, never thought greed could get so low in gaming.”

      I guess you Never played Silkroad around 2006-2007 , When Joymax started allowing the swam of bot’s to over run thier game.. What were they at…Roughly 20 server’s and all full 1 day after each tuesday’s maintenance.

      It really is nothing new, just something we rarely see these day’s.

      I don’t consider that P2L though.

      I really don;t know where your getting your wait times from longest i had to wait was maybe 15 minutes….

      Btw , when you say ” I have been studying the server’s ” Really?
      Just wondering who you copy and pasted this time !

      Maybe the 2 hour waits or more are from having caca on your lip’s!

  5. Eviil on February 5, 2013

    F2P IS ON!

  6. BloodLord on February 5, 2013

    I played tera for a bit it was dissapointing when tera was pay2play becuase they didnt have the physical time cards due to that it was a pain . but now its laggy, and when it goes free to play its gonna get even crazier …. this issue upsets me ….. anyways im gonna start playing tera again and see how it goes if ayone wants to start playing with me add add my facebook Jadden Matheson, message me the details, as in Class, Race, Server, PvE, or PvP . and so on so forth… BloodLord, OUT!

  7. SiiKGaming on February 2, 2013

    Sup guys, I just bought the game and I’m wondering if anybody is gonna be starting Tera soon also… I’m looking for a partner to play with; Contact me at If you wanna duo / trio, thanks!

  8. LordHikaru on February 2, 2013

    Honestly considering buying the game while I still can.. mostly for the founder’s perks, but I don’t plan on going Elite except maybe the first 30 days then cancel the subscription. I’m enjoying myself so far. If anyone is on the PvP Server, you’ll find me under my Archer, Barack.Torox lol.

  9. chefmadness on February 2, 2013

    LOL you mentioned me. Wish you would go more in depth with the social panel.

    See ya later MagicMan.

  10. Inlfictious on February 2, 2013

    Dl’d this again , ATM i just want players to know that YOU Cannot add friends with the trial , version ..We’ll see if this changes at launch.

  11. TwoDigitScout on February 1, 2013

  17. Tiger on February 1, 2013

    Magicman they said you cant transfer from old server to new only Old > Old New > New Source :

    • Magicman on February 2, 2013

      Yeah, kinda got my mind jumbled thinkig of the transfers and the new servers being a seperate Q and my thought didn’t come out quite right ๐Ÿ™‚ It happens lol!

  18. s1m007 on February 1, 2013

    can you grind in tera ??

  19. KalameesJr on February 1, 2013

    Should have really shown people some melee combat aswell in the end tbh because imho ranged combat pales in comparison to melee combat in Tera.

  20. Berny on January 31, 2013

    I was gonna try this game. (Followed since launch) But i most likely wont due to the fact i get MAYBE 200 kb/s download speed. :/ Is it worth the wait?

  21. Firaxes on January 31, 2013

    Great first look as always. I did a trial on this some time ago and felt it just wasn’t for me, at least not as a buy and sub game. After the F2P announcement I decided to try it again and now feel that as a free game, it will be hard to beat. I’ve become a founder and look forward to playing at least as a filler until NW or TESO open up.

  22. Reaper5167 on January 31, 2013

    Hey Magicman, a friend of mine told me that Malaysian ip has been blocked from here, i was really looking forward to tera ๐Ÿ™ is it true?

    • Angel on February 1, 2013

      Malaysia did not block. You need to play Europe version. I can play it

      • Reaper5167 on February 1, 2013

        oh, wow, thanks, but it’s gonna lag like hell though, oh well, better than nothing I guess…..

      • executor on February 6, 2013

        angel im from malaysia too…
        izit is too lag or delay on tat server if otherwise can u help make me 1 copy and send to my address??
        I will pay to your account number..

  23. Panda Bowie on January 31, 2013

    I personally bought the game after playing the trail and i liked it but just a warning at level 20+ you need somtimes a group to do the quest (BAMS) you can solo but experienced players only really..

  24. magicman on January 31, 2013

    lalala o.O

    • Magicman on February 1, 2013

      We have an imposter! ๐Ÿ˜›

  25. Kess on January 31, 2013

    I’m definitely going to try TERA, now that it’s free. It certainly looks good enough and I would be silly to pass up the opportunity to at least give it a go myself before judging it.

  26. cejey on January 31, 2013

    what kind of mount did u use there o.O? and how to get it ! it rly looks nice :O…

    • Mead on January 31, 2013

      I think his mount’s the “Sleipnir” (I think that’s how you spell it) which is only available through the En Masse Store.

      • cejey on January 31, 2013

        ah thx for info^^ to bad i never seen it in the eu version :O

      • Magicman on February 1, 2013

        ^ this ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Sidecrew on January 31, 2013

    Is their gonna be any IP block ๐Ÿ˜ฎ thanks for aswering :3 !

    • anip on January 31, 2013

      Yes, according to:

      All countries except for America and Europe will be IP blocked due to high traffic of hackers.

    • Magicman on February 1, 2013

      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 won’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.

      • daDash on March 27, 2013

        Thats just not fair :/ do you know if they are going to be available for Armenia at all?

  28. Inflictious on January 31, 2013

    Few questions for you on this.

    If you go the hot bar route/keyboard.. Instead of like other game’s you get in a rythm..example 1,2,1,2,1,2,3 repeat…
    In Tera doe’s this mean it could become a… Using your starting skill that you used ..3, than space,space,space,space till the chai run’s out than repeat?

    Question on Priest/Healer class.. This class do you have to manualy “Try ” and target the player that you want to cast a heal or is there a tab option …If not , I could see the healer having 1 hell of a time with Everyone running everywhere, Making a Healer class one of the most needed..Being a Noob healer , no one will ever want to play with you.

    Thanks for the video.. Showed me the world more than what i seen on the F2P cast.

    You asked me why i was not playing Tera , Well another and my main reason was i did dl that huge starter trial start at lvl 20 , but the world was path a – b , I really hate that alot . And after seeing your video , than thinking ahhh i will give it a try , and starting on that beach to see it was exactly the same.. Lasted not even 5 minutes i had deleted the game from my pc…I was just not happy with what i saw in the vid and when logging in for the first time..

    I am an open world type player .


    • Dragnmastralex on January 31, 2013

      the left mouse button is your auto attack you just have to put the enemy in your crosshairs. you could fight using nothing but this attack you don’t have to use the skills BUT it does make combat easier and quicker if you pick at least 1 or 2 skills and use them.

      Healers work different instead of targeting a party member you make healing orbs and this orb pops out on the ground, other players that want a heal simply need to pick up the orb and bang they are healed. there is aoe heals in which a circle appears on the ground you target the area by moving your mouse and then you click the spot where you want to heal players and click with your mouse and you heal everything in that area with a cooldown on the skill.

      • Inflictious on January 31, 2013

        Ty , Healer don’t sound or seem to hard at all no more.

        I will reinstall it after the 5th , I want to start at lvl 1 not lvl 20.

        Again thank’s for the info, Never spent alot of time at all in it before deleting it.


  29. kitkatchunky on January 31, 2013

    Magicman i’m a fan and value your opinion alot ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just a quick question, is this game worth it? I wasted too much time on raiderz, and it turned out dissappointing and boring/repetitive. Is there any action mmo out there right now that is better than tera (either f2p or b2p) or is this the best thing?

    Looking for a game that has a decent blend of both story and action oriented combat (not the point and click)


    • ZhaoYun on January 31, 2013

      if u played raiderz like myself nothing new will be for u as far as combat but combat is still slightly different also i believe that tera is more “intersting”(both story and pvp wise)than raiderz thats what i can say

      • kitkatchunky on January 31, 2013

        Alright thanks man, the gameplay does seem better. Its the neverwinter let down, its getting to me ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Edge Damodred on January 31, 2013

      Personally I feel the instance based action mmo’s do a much better job combat wise because the designers can plan for a finite amount of players, giving them the resources needed to make much more interesting encounters. Vindictus and C9’s combat was just more enjoyable due to the more varied style of enemies in a single stage that didn’t wait to engage you once you entered their magic radius of ‘give a s**t’. The areas are designed take advantage of the greater mobility of the characters and actually create challenges that test that greater range.

      TERA and RaiderZ actual combat are a step in the right direction but they’re out of place in the very ’15 bear ass collection quest/thumbs up their asses mobs’ world of the hotkey/tabbed-targeting games.

      • Magicman on February 1, 2013


        What Edge said ๐Ÿ™‚ If you “got bored” with RaiderZ, Tera will end up boring you too. The game is a quest grind just like RaiderZ.

        Try something like C9 ๐Ÿ™‚ Just a suggestion!

        • kitkatchunky on February 1, 2013

          Thank you for your reply. I’ve already tried Vindictus and C9. Not my cup of tea. The instance based gameplay is even more bland as compared to open world.

          Guess i’ll just wait for Elder Scrolls Online. Looks awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. GizmoMKD on January 31, 2013

    i just w8 more from this game.

    • Cacalips on February 1, 2013

      Prepare to wait a very very long time.

      • GizmoMKD on February 1, 2013

        Nahh, i’m playing gw2 in meantime ๐Ÿ™‚

        • theneon on February 2, 2013

          how can you be playing that?im lvl 20 and im bored of it!
