Well I read into the forum posts, tbh I was gonna play TERA at release but decided not to due to FFXIV 2.0, however now I am thinking about quitting FFXIV and picking up that CE Box that was my preorder but has now been sitting in my local gamestop since TERA release.
Thing is I seen mixed reviews and opinions, from the perspective of players who have been max level for at least a month, what is your opinion of the game so far? I am the type that plays on a PVE server but likes to do PVP BGs, and work for end game gear. But dont take what I like to do into account of your current perception of the game.
Thanks to everyone who could help me come to a decision.
The CE box is still there actually. Saw it this morning.
I wouldn't judge the game from the forum posts. People come here to complain, not to praise.
I was playing FFXIV, and jumped into Tera since FFXIV was pretty boring. I have highly enjoyed Tera so far. The combat is great fun (which is good because you will be grinding out levels.) Each class feels different to me.
The graphics are nice. There have been a few areas that have been awesome looking. I really enjoy the monster design as well.
The downside: you will be doing the same dungeons over and over for endgame. Daily quests to get certain gear are a bit of a drain.
Many complain about the crafting system, however, it is not complicated...just invested. It's not as simple as get 5 of something and craft it up. It is a bit of a pain, yes. Is it do-able? Definitely.
My advice: Try the 7 day demo and see how your initial reactions are to the game. Play a few jobs, and find out what you like best.
^ hate it when people talk like the crafting system was meant to be super hard. EmE just broke NA-Tera's crafting. K-Tera crafting IS as simple as get 5 of something and craft it up, to rank up, through crafting quests.
Crafting is being fixed verrrry slowly tho, but they should just put the quests back in since they didn't have anything better for the system on their removal.
If you are a PvP'er, you are going to hate the current system come QoA Pt 2 if it isn't fixed by then. Just sayin.
Yea I liked the lancer class I actually played the beta up to lv 25. Its just alot to think about I mean FFXIV is gonna go into 2.0 soon which everyone is saying will revive the game. Yet they still havent released a single blasted gameplay trailer of it to us yet.
I think the real question is how in the hell you managed to stay hooked on that world renowned piece of garbage for so long when it was arguably the worst mmorpg in existence for about a whole year after it released (they didn't even induce their subscription fee until then it was so bad).
