    really depends on what you are looking for in a MMO

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    TERA players like me will tell you to get TERA and you won't regret it.  GW2 fans will tell you it's awful.

    If you're looking for an MMO to play right now, TERA is the best one out by far, and probably, in my opinion, will be the best through the rest of the year.

    Yeah it's fun, at least for now. Endgame doesn't seem to really exist yet but I'm sure they'll patch it in during upcoming months as people cap out. Depending on endgame quality will determine if I resub past gw2 launch. Fun for now though.

    I'm a unique and beautiful snowflake.

    Tera is really fun, I was in the same situation you are....

    Don't regret it and enjoying it a lot...Don't let the fanboys of other games tell you otherwise....

    As for Tera, If you haven't played the GW2 beta I'd advice you to get it, IF you have played GW2 beta I'd advice you to not get it, at least not yet until Diablo3 comes out and read reviews/compare the games.

    Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

    As for Tera, If you played GW2 Beta I'd advice you against it, if you haven't I'd advice you to wait for DIablo3 reviews then decide.

    Well I was in the OP's situation and made the mistake of buying TERA, I regret it now but money's spent already so..

    I'm eagerly awaiting GW2. Played in the BWE and loved every freaking second of it and now I can't enjoy WoW or LOTRO the same.

    Bought TERA to "hold me over" until then. Mostly got it on a whim, since I'd heard things such as "standard kill X" quests. It's true that the questing system is archaic at best, but otherwise I've been having nothing but a great time. The combat is really fun to me, although I do still prefer GW2 combat (since you can, you know, move around while attacking in GW2).

    If you're looking for an MMO that can give you that same basic feeling, and don't mind a game ressembling other MMOs from a basic standpoint (same kinds of quests, same kind of progression), I would recommend TERA. Sure, it's a bit same-ish but it's still a very good game in it's own right.

    The community as a whole, however, is pretty fucking terrible so far.

    I actually would recommend getting TERA.  It is a pretty fun game, however, just be prepared to go through linear questing hubs or BAM grinding for your leveling experience.   Gameplay-wise, the combat is good, everything else is pretty meh.  

    BOOYAKA!

    Well, some of my family want to get torchlight 2. So Ill either have 2 MMos to play (GW2/TERA) or Ill have 2 CORPGS(Diablo3/Torchlight2). I dunno what to do.

    Already preordered GW2. Pretty much agreed to split cost for Torchlight 2(with fam).

    if you can get over the horrible immature community that makes up Tera then go for it , its a fun game to tide you over until better releases. But its full of pedo's and immature little brats on a lot of the servers spamming channels with nonsense and the company isnt doing anything at all about it nor the gold spammers starting to show up which the same bot on celestrial hills now for a week still actively spamming with no EM responce.

    Really depends, there was a good amount of people who played GW2 beta only to move to Tera because they thought it was better, so idk really depends on personal taste.

    If it helps, Tera's price has already been reduced on Amazon.  

    Whether that means it's awesome or crap I'll leave up to your personal tastes.

    I couldn't deal with running in the hamster wheel another moment though.

    For me it is definately the best MMO out right now. I don't play WoW and ToR did not cut it for me. My problem is I have no intentions on paying a sub for Tera, so I will wait and enjoy D3 in the mean time.

    I picked Tera up as something to do while waiting for D3. The combat is quite fun so far, the questing is pretty typical though. Figure I'll keep it as a backup game to play after D3 comes out... if I don't get bored of it by then, that is. I'm still in the starter area, so we'll see.

    Well we have a week :p. Tell me what happens after you leave the starter zone. I hear people say 20ish really gets cool.

    Regardless of the fact its not necessarily a 'korean grinder', if you like other asian offerings (specifically Aion and Lineage 2) you have a decent chance at liking TERA.  If you didnt like those games and prefer PvE to PvP odds are you wont like TERA...You still may, but I wouldnt bet on it.

     

    IMO there are just so many better PvE games out there that if you are only killing time til d3 you are better off not spending any money and playing rift lite or eq2 or lotro until D3.
