TERA is the first true Action MMORPG, providing all of the depth of an MMO with the intensity and gratification of an action game. Players fully control their characters using the game’s dynamic battle system. Player actions can change the balance of power in a world threatened by dark powers as six allied races try to work together to protect their lands from marauding monsters, underworld dwellers, and evil scheming gods. TERA raises the bar, setting new standards in the gaming industry. It is a visually stunning world with graphic quality above all other games in the industry. You will experience a new ground-breaking gameplay system where stereotypes of traditional MMORPGs will be broken. You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. No more ‘pointing and clicking’ and playing combat relay with the enemies. Furthermore, not only do you control the action, TERA is also set in a world where the players will dictate the flow of the economy and individually impact the community environment.

Comment: Tera online is one of the best, if not the best free mmorpg these days. It offers a variety of class picks, races and many other things. Graphic is outstanding, world looks fantastic and pvp is the best. I love this game very much.

Comment: Tired of the typical MMO? Want dynamic battles against huge monsters where the basic concept is still intact? Then Tera might just be what you’re looking for.

The MMORPG genre is often criticized for being itself. “This is exactly like World of Warcraft,” it’s said, before anyone has time to think exactly the same reasoning that could be applied to – say – the action genre. In the case of Tera, the basic concept is back from other MMORPG’s but at the same time the battles and design reveals that this is something beyond the ordinary.

The world that Bluehole Studio created using the Unreal Engine is a dazzling beautiful one. As a beginner in the game, I was introduced what the beautiful fantasy online game could offer, feature for feature. If I jump forward a bunch of hours, I’ve reached lvl 20 and I’ve beaten my way through hordes of enemies and find myself at the end of a mission chain where you have to defeat a massive boss.

Up until this point in the adventure, I had no idea what my actual role to the other players will be, but here I have to decide if I want to tank, heal, throw spells or stab enemies through life.

The quest system in Tera is very similar to Star Wars: The Old Republic where I get to choose what I want to do and don’t need to focus on the main story. The side quests will help me in the form of extra experience points and equipment, and also offers a complimentary experience that takes the edge off the drama a little – a critical aspect of a MMO who must feel alive and dynamic.

The side quests are for the most part to gather something or kill a certain number of enemies. To make this easier, you are shown exactly where the objects or enemies are on your map. In addition to this arch-classic type of quests design, I’m also offered in much more interesting variants where I can be pressured by the time or in an ambush where you have to hold out when the waves of enemies flooding towards you.

Initially, I only travel by either running from town to town or teleport me from places I have already discovered. Later, at level 11, I can purchase a mount that makes the traveling far more comfortable. Besides, it’s awesome with lions and horses. On top of that, I can start to save up for a flying pegasus when I reach the game’s capital.

Tera has been marketed as an action-oriented MMO, and this shows itself in the fact that I have to aim my attacks on my own (or healing spells) to succeed. A classic, Japanese MMO feature that have not yet established itself in the western world. By lining up my attacks I can perform combos and generally the fighting feels much deeper and more entertaining than many other MMO titles.

In Tera it feels natural to slaughter everything you see. But firstly, my items are breaking after a while and I need material to repair my stuff. Secondly, I can earn incredible buffs (positive impact) with everything I gather. It will be interesting to see what role these buffs will play in the real challenges later in the game, but right now it is simply too early to say anything.

If you do not have a sufficient number of comrades to clear a particular instance, you can use the game’s built-in matchmaking system, and caves and instances is something that will require some weaning from the classic online role players side. For example, you can not pass through allies or monsters, but must run around to get where you want.

Add to that the fact that you have to aim to hit your target and you have a whole new kind of challenge ahead of you. Aiming and coordination skills suddenly become at least as critical as the items you have managed to accumulate, and it is not certain that the players that have played TERA the longest will be the strongest.

After many hours, I start to get used to the battle system, but I still have to say that I really do not recommend roles like tank or healer for someone other than someone used to MMORPG’s. Other players tend to move which complicates the critical heals when it is needed most, and the one to blame will be you. Instead, choose a class with a focus to injure the enemies and learn yours and your comrades movement patterns is, in different situations.This will help you if you later choose to play as a healer.

It doesn’t matter how you look at it. TERA is a strong newcomer in the role-playing genre. During the beta period, it looked quite bad sometimes, but now that the game is finished and released, it is clear that Bluehole Studio managed to get the game back on track in the end. It has infinite potential, thanks to a unique combat system and inviting, warm graphics that refuses to let go.

Even though the crafting system might be a little complicated and some side quests are really unnecessary and boring, the unique combat system, the adorable graphics, heavy sound, great story and almost an endless of things to do makes the game worth your time. You definitely don’t want to miss this game.

Comment: Tera’s battle system is something new and fresh compared to the select and click method of most mmos. I am extremely pleased with the graphics, which are far superior to many mmos. The classes are pretty usual; there is a mage class, priest, tank, ranger. Another unique part of Tera is the government system, Overall, I would be excited to play an mmo like Tera and be able to experience the gameplay first-hand. Thanks

Comment: Very promising looking game, looking forward to 3D combat. Graphic wise its going to do well, but the combat system is going to make my day, i hope this will become a well organised PVP game. Or even makes me want to try PVE after 10 years of MMORPG gaming.

Comment: Tera Online is one the next generation of MMORPG that separates itself from the click, lock on and attack. The fast-paced game play have you constantly watching the screen to see what is happening and what you should do next. The reason why I want to try out Tera is because I want to experience this new type of gameplay in and MMORPG. Also to decide whether or not I just Pre order the game.

Comment: TERA like a breath of fresh air among the current MMO games. It offers its own unique style and the graphics are amazing. Combat system, according to its dynamics, is very similar to DMC (and I have to tell the truth I am an ardent fan of the series), but at the same time it is also a MMORPG that elevates this game to the first line in my list of the most anticipated games. The game assumes command game, and straight arms. The game assumes command game, and straight arms. Now if you want to get the target you’re aiming to it and not shoot from the back of the head with fireballs and arrows.A political system of the game simply divine, plus I’m sure that many people missed the clan wars in other MMO games.I really hope that gods give me chance to play TERA and check it for awesomeness by myself.

Comment: TERA looks like a truly groundbreaking MMO. It has a great art style, and I know that Frogster is very familiar with pleasing it’s player base.

The skill based combat system is extremely exciting, and will hopefully revolutionize the way that MMO fights actually work. Hopefully this change will leave the old button mashing tactics behind.

Comment: Really looking forward to this game, first off the fact that you have to aim to damage is awesome, im tired of typical highlight/spam buttons combat. It would seem that the developers put their soul and heart into this game, including alot of work hours. Graphics look phenomenal along with the combat system. I really like games where you have to work as a team to defeat a boss in a instance/dungeon, and this will suit my nicely.

Comment: I am looking Tera as a new MMO, it has some amazing looking graphics and a fresh combat system where you actually aim rather than the typical targeting system most of us are all so used to. The fact there is no factions to worry about balancing and the appeal of server vs server pvp is interesting too.

Comment: Here is why I am looking forward to this game. There is nothing good out there at the moment and the mmo’s have all become so “cookie cutter” These guys seem to know this and have taken steps to change things up a bit. I have been watching posts and they don’t like “auto everything” crap. That in itself is a huge plus in my book. Also they have said there will be support for using a game controller!! Huge plus for me. Anyway I am really looking forward to this games release and would love to get a sneak peek at it. Even if just to see how it will run on various builds that I have. I go by lvdeb on the forum by the way

Comment: I am looking forward to testing Tera because I want to try something “different” for once. I am sick of the same old tab targeting system and look forward to trying something way different than the ordinary. Tera seems to be the perfect blend that everyone has been waiting for and if you’re sick of the tab targeting system and same old mmo junk that keeps being release. Tera is for you!

Comment: In my opinion this game looks like another Aion clon.Alot of graphics, gay characters like some panda archer, alot uh! ah!
This game will be buried and forgotten witchin fhew months after release. Me self playing WoW since the beta.Im sick of the game after so many years, and tryed all other mmo’s that were comming out in the years. All the games were claming to be the new King, and WoW destroyers.. My conclusion after so many years is: There is only ONE game developer that can beat WoW. And its Blizzard himself!

  1. My first download after I get new PC will be Steam and TERA. This game is so much awesome. Everybody is telling me to try and showing me videos of it’s gameplay (and I liked it). Even my favorite YouTuber, Keyori, made a video called ‘Should you play TERA’ where he said we should play it. 5/5

    Croco12 did not rate this post.
  2. Tera is now one of the best mmorpgs you will ever find….PVP’s are awesome…Graphics are amazing and game overall is one of the best….There are alot classes in game you have alot choices……Recommend this game if you are a fan of mmorpgs

    TheRedLight3 did not rate this post.
  4. This is a good game the gameplay is good animation as well and so is the graphics, but I do see a lot of players complaining about the community they said it’s very bad not sure about that though. 😛

    Masako did not rate this post.
  5. TERA is one of the best MMORPGs you can experience, probably one of the few MMORPGs that a more interesting experience. For instance, you have 7 races to choose from (some are pretty interesting like the Popori which are more animal-like) to choose from and 13 classes to choose from (sorcerer and mystic are probably my favorite classes). Combat is probably the most unique for the gameplay since it’s really a true action-combat battle system where you aim to target enemies rather than tab-target enemies. I’d rate this game a 4.9/5.
