Tera Online on CBT

Tera: The Exiled Realm of Arborea is one of the new MMORPGs that would soon be released, as it is still in beta testing at present. The game houses seven races and eight classes. The game's serveres would be located in North America and Europe, but the good thing is both servers would not have IP-block. Stated below is a brief over view of Tera Online from More details to follow in the next posts :)

Tera Online is a very user-friendly game. For instance, targeting monsters may look complicated but in fact it's really easy to pick up, especially for players who have only played point and click MMORPG's. It's pretty easy to level up and you will most likely never run out of quests. Tera Online can get very addicting due to it's new direction of combat and non-targeting system. The storyline missions can prove to be challenging on occasion but at the same time it isn't so hard to finish like the end game dungeon. Most of the monsters and areas that you will come across have their own unique feel. Having played a lot of titles, I've yet to stumble across similar monsters or areas in other games.

It's very easy to pick up Tera Online and learn it; the gameplay isn't that hard and it will be a nice change for those of you who are looking to get away from your average point and click MMORPG's. There are a lot of monsters to kill and you won't find yourself grinding or questing in the same area for more than two or three levels. But if you want to level up efficiently, it's essential you find a good grinding spot with a repeatable quest. All the keys, commands, menus, hot bars, and such can all be rebounded to a different key. If you don't like moving around with the default WASD then you can switch it around to something else. If you don't like normal attacking with your left mouse button, then you can easily bind it to different key in the options menu or just move the normal attack skill to a different skill bar slot. You will find that most of the monsters graphics aren't recycled much, so you won't get bored fighting the same monster over and over. Even when they are recycled their textures are so different that you won't notice that they are the same monster until you see their actions.

Playable Races Classes
There is a huge amount of playable classes you can choose from, along with different kinds of races. The only drawback with a lot of races to pick from is the lack of body customization. While you can customize your characters face fully, you are unable to customize your characters height and properties. Sorry boys, no boob slider for you. However, it shouldn't be much concern to you or me. Why? Because you've already got a huge amount of playable races to pick from! I won't go into detail about this matter much, but if you're interested in seeing each race during it's character creation process then you can follow the link below and see my collection of recorded videos for each race.

Some players may think playing specific race for a certain class may have huge benefits. There are some races that are suited for specific classes but they are not exactly ground breaking, which is why I chose to play an Elin Lancer. It's always fun to tank monsters that are three to ten times bigger than you. I also tried to customize her to look like my website mascot! Isn't she adorable? Anyway, if you're looking to tank monsters you would want to go with Lancer or Warrior. Lancers are actually preferred in the long run, at least until Warriors get buffed more. Either that or I haven't stumbled across any OP Warriors yet. The best damage dealers would have to be Sorcerer and Berserker, followed by Archer and Slayer. The best healer would have to be the Priest, but a Mystics wide variety of utilities can come very handy in party. Both support classes can heal very efficiently and either one of them is desired in late game instances.

Tera is a great game, I am loving it. I will probably end up leveling an alt, at least until the battlefield system releases. I wanted to hold off on leveling another character to 50 because if I got started it on it, then this review wouuld never get published. Tera Online is one of those MMORPG's that you don't want to miss. It offers its own unique style and the graphics are amazing. I wouldn't bother comparing Tera's current end game content with any other MMORPG's. For one thing, that MMO has been out for awhile now and has gone through loads of updates whereas Tera Online was only recently released, and within the first month it has received its first update that unlocked the new instance dungeons. After playing a non-stop months of this game only, I haven't come to regret a single time I stayed up all night playing. I still have two months left remaining on my subscription and I'm not planning to quit anytime soon. I'm pretty satisfied with the game and its current content; the latest dungeons proves to be very challenging and should keep users busy for good month. Tera is definitely a game that you don't want to miss out on this year when it releases in NA. Even if you are to pay a month's worth just to see how the game is, you will be satisfied with the results.
