Is Tera worth trying out?

Or is it crap compared to WoW or even Rift which I enjoyed getting to max level in?

I'm also interested to hear about this. I always wanted to give Tera a try but kind of gave up on it. Any thumbs up or down would be appreciated.

It's decent enough. Held my interest for about as long as Neverwinter... which isn't all that long I suppose but I've never really been big into MMOs.

Tera is, in terms of a MMO, quite average.

Tera is exceptional because of its action combat system, which puts pretty much every other MMOs to shame.

It also has artistically pleasing and colorful visuals.

Otherwise, its quite standard, and the quests while leveling are incredibly standard fetch and kill quests, ALL the time.

Yet I liked it a lot, purely because its action combat system is really fun. I'm personally hoping I can get a team of 5 to go through this game and its dungeons -> the dungeons being the most fun part of the game, since they are somewhat skill based and just overall fun to do.

Thats the thing, the game is much more a dungeon-game than a MMO game. The whole MMO aspect is just not very good, but it has some great stuff in it.

Not only this but you only have to download a gig or two before you can launch the game if you let it install the Happy Cloud streaming installer.

TERA's gameplay is fun as hell, nothing else like it.

Tera....horrible theme park questing at its worst. But it has the absolute best combat system I have seen in an MMO.

And it's not pay to win.

Great visuals

Fun combat.

The only drawback is that the questing is nothing new.
