Once SWTOR went FTP I tried it out but was really dissatisfied with some of the limitations they had. Seeing quest rewards say things like "Not available" because I was FTP really annoyed me.

I'm really curious to check out TERA; I wasn't aware of their unlimited trial until level 28 thing so I'll have to download that tonight.

I'm still lancin' on Mount Tyrannas server bluexy, if you ever wanna free2die some hardmodes come february, I'm always game.

I really like Tera. There are some things that could be improved, but the combat is excellent and the graphics are really nice, though I do prefer somewhat more modest attire on females.

Crafter Sweet. I'll make sure to keep you and your server in mind. You think free-to-play is a good move for them?

bluexy, I'm not sure. There isn't a terrible lack of players right now, there's actually been a large influx in the last few weeks.With it going F2P we're definitely going to see a lot more Brazilians though, and while I didn't used to be a racist, it'll be nothing but trouble. As long as the cash shop doesn't start stocking things like masterwork scrolls/alkahest it shouldn't be too bad, IMO.

i kept my eye on tera for a while pre-release but the reviews i read cooled by eagerness. it seemed to be a rad playstyle stuck in the 'kill 15 rats' paradigm that caused it to not mesh well overall. that's the consensus sentiment i personally gleened, anyway. going f2p i may very well reconsider, however. still tossing around whether to timesink into this or gw2 as i certainly cannot do both. any thoughts?

Can you play as the little fluffy rabbit/bear looking things? I wanna play as one of those decked out in the sunglasses the one is wearing toward the end of the video.

Saevus GW2 for sure. Wouldn't hurt to try out TERA when it goes free to play, or download the endless demo right now, though.

oni_hero YES. When I played I was a fat little cat warrior and it was the most amazing experience.

So now I get to try this out in Feb and be a fat little cat. Should be a decent break from SWTOR, which despite what everyone says I love, and the F2P actually convinced me to buy a 2 month membership card.

Seriously though I want to play a fat little cat in a leather jacket and aviator shades. Terminator style.

oni_hero, You need to pick up a top hat. Popori in tophats with the shady aviators totally look like pimps.

TERA is a mixed thing for me. After checking out a confirmation article from Gamearena that this game is going free to play next month, I was piqued again.
I'm not big on Korean MMOs but TERA sets itself apart from other similar games with its combat. I enjoyed slashing, hacking, dodging powerful blows from monsters , casting spells, and discovering interesting combos by linking together available moves. Combat is essentially what makes TERA worth checking. Forget about everything else though as they are all boring.
Another good thing about TERA are the impressive animations and character models, even if all the seven playable races more or less resembles a checklist of Korean MMO generics--elf race,check, demonic race, check, creepy child-like race, check. The smoothness of the animation also serves another purpose aside from charm. Other than the usual foes one encounters, TERAs zones are full of Big Ass Monsters (BAMs) as well. While their blows can reduce your health quickly to half, their movements show a pattern a seasoned player can easily recognize to dodge their attacks and avoid damage. BAMs are the ultimate test for the high-speed gameplay and I say I enjoyed it. In other MMOs I played, one can only defeat an enemy of this size by a group or similarly-leveled players. Not with TERA though. After spending seventeen hours on it, I was able to enjoy my class and read a monster's movements well enough to easily handle them. While the game still recommends going with a group in dealing with BAMs, I find it more exciting to operate solo to chip away one BAM at a time. Other than this, TERA does not offer any other interesting aspects of an interesting MMO.
