Tera Online

Just starting this up cause I said I would just to see how many people are interested in this game, since there has hardly been any mention of this game on mmgn at all.

To sum things up in my perspective Tera online is an open world action subscription based MMO.

It's probably one of the more official unique MMOs compared to the likes of WoW etc, but it's by far from the truth, action MMOs are here and there with micro transactions as it's funding.

It's main merit is it's one of the few open world action mmos.

You can check about more things at:
tera.enmasse.com/...

It does have some interesting features like a political system, which allows players to run ingame towns etc, if they can get that far otherwise it does shut out weaker more casual players from that ability while rewarding more dedicated players cause these towns are limited and affect everyone I believe.

Yeah I ended up getting a 2nd EU key, 1 out of 50 apparently I gave that away also.

It's so lame people take keys and sell them :S
It's common with a lot of "popular" betas. SWTOR was the same way, those keys went for like, $200 at the beginning.

I figured, that still doesn't change the fact it's lame :P

Just like the LoL pax skins etc, only those are somewhat fair... since you got to go there and get them, beta keys are lame since they're free over the internet :(
Yeah, pretty much. I've considered buying PAX Jax, actually, but I can never seem to man up enough to justify spending the cash :P
login.ign.com/...

You can get a CBT1 Beta key apparently from IGN atm, but you need one of their membership services...

Probably not worth paying for it but if you can find an alternative/have an existing membership account etc.

You can get one I guess.

:P

Though you could use that free trial thing and cancel I guess =D

Edit: Also for those unaware the Tera Beta client has been up for download since 10am Sydney time, aka 10+ GMT

So it's a good idea to snag a key if you want to play this weekend starting friday to sunday!

Edit2: Tera's Diagnostic tool, should be helpful if anyone has concerns about their current setup to run Tera~

tera-support.enmasse.com/...

Edit3: Character creation and commentary by IGN (I wanted to link this for the kittehs... it's apparent they know my weakness [Rage])
au.ign.com/...

Edit4: Game starts at 12noon PST, which is 7am 10+ GMT with Day light savings.
Aw, what a time to be out of town! This one looks like so much fun. I also just realized this thread consists almost entirely of the two of you talking to each other and now I sort of feel like I'm interrupting something.
Just got a beta key, 3 hours to finish patching :(
Damn mira... you download fast (evil)

Took me 4-5 days to download it [Rage]

Regarding lag, it can actually get quite bad, but I had no idea what my ping was at, I'd probably say with command delay go with LoL as an example, but I think 400ping perhaps is still pretty solid I'm not sure though, 700+ and it's frustrating especially as a lancer when you're trying to sneak hits inbetween blocks and windows only for your block to delay and you eat a hit.

DPS might not have this problem... but I'm not sure whether you'll feel the rubberband effect I don't notice it except when I'm traveling between zones via Pegasus Station.

Edit: Might be good to know that the high resolution patch for CBT2 should be up already, I'm busy with work but I'll try to keep updates on obtaining CBT2 Keys if I can.

CBT2 starts next weekend, so the 24th to 26th of February 2012 In america, which is saturday for us, not sure whether they'll start at the same time which was 12 Noon PST, aka 7 AM Sydney time.

But I'll keep you guys updated on that if I find out, probably won't though :O
Please do Koji, I got into the first beta but when I logged on, I got a nice message saying the servers were going down in 5 minutes [Rage]
While I haven't seen anything on the NA CBT2 yet, I thought I'd sure something about EU Tera's Beta which really bites:

https://forum.tera-europe.com/showthread.php?t=35098

But to sum things up Europe gets very limited play/testing time of about 9 hours per day, over 3 days.

Not to sure why they would do that, it's better to stress test the servers or what not as well as letting players have more time to play so they can find more bugs.

On the bright side their CBT1 has Guild vs Guild along with a PvP server, and PK functions.

Edit: Found some rumours about CBT2 for Tera, apparently they will be increasing the level cap to 27, again these are rumours and I cannot find a source to confirm this.

Also here's a giveaway competition tentonhammer is doing:

www.tentonhammer.com/...

Edit2: Level cap was confirmed, En Masse has released further CBT2 Details here:

tera.enmasse.com/...

Edit3: Found a CBT2 competition but there's only two keys but you might as well take a stab a it I'd say, it doesn't specify which beta but the only CBT2 that's coming up should be the NA Tera CBT2

If you kept updated on the Tera twitter or from a friend you might've seen this already but I didn't care for it when I first heard about it but I did find it entertaining after I watched it.

Yeah I like the music in the background~


Also found a Tera fansite for the Australian community incase anyone cares:

teraonline.com.au/...

Edit: An excellent informative guide on the basics of tera and it's features that go into character customisation.

I just "pre-ordered" Tera for $5 on Amazon to get into the BETA's [Derp]

If I don't like it after the beta's then I'll just cancel ;)

7am for sydney yup.

Edit:

@Mira if you want mira you can join us on vent tommorrow for Tera, but we'll need the leader to set up an vent account for ya, otherwise you can't move around channels.

I'll send you the Vent info via PM.
if i pre-order TERA fomr there website would i have closed beta access?
Apparently yes, you would. Don't take my word for it though, but I'm pretty sure that's how most people actually got their access.
Koji [Rage]

I can't switch channels. Needed to ask you a question about crafting in Velikra or w/e.

The quest tells me I have to make 25 of the swords/armours and such, but do I really have to buy ALL the materials? I spent like 10k already :'@
lol i wondered why teh download was goign soo slow then i found teh P2P sharing and turning it off it much of being saturated my uploads
I was busy trying to hit the cap for this CB, I hit capped at about 18 hours it can easily be faster if you know what you're doing and with the right people.

It's also why I haven't been on here, sorry guys~! =)

Nope, everything gets wiped after CBT. :P

They probably won't wipe OBT as they keep saying that.

"be allowed to retain their characters and their progress for the duration of the closed beta period."

"duration of the closed beta period", meaning whatever character you had in CBT1 will stay in CBT2 etc.

But after CBT5 everything gets wiped :(
