Post TERA Official Start May 1
Official Start

Begins: Tuesday, May 1 at 12:00 AM Pacific

Characters/Account: 8 per Server
Max Lvl: 60

Preorder allows April 28 start.

Got to play a few hours on final day of OBT & very impressed. (Any game that has flying mount travel has to be good & this has pegasus with warp drive!)
Combat with no target selecting, fun specially for casters. My priest can actually kite which is neat :) & throwing heals AT folks is great. Love the cities, really. and environment. Quests are purposeful with story & local separate. 1st dungeon boss quest (lvl 10 in start zone) gives mount reward, after you get to the capital in next zone, along with cool new wep & armors.
Possible shortage of tanks, partly because the mt class is called a Lancer, & players are coming from other games & rolling worriers which are med armor dps class.
10 servers in obt with 3 for pvp, all full.

This game might prevent me playing GW2.

Don't get your hopes up to high. The game gets very dull and very bland as you get higher in levels. While there is no tab targeting you can still mouse over targets and then lock on them. So there is a degree of targeting in the game. At the higher end the game is really just like any other. You are going to grind the same instances over and over for gear. And you are going to grind daily quest for tokens (forget what they are really called). Combat is just as repetitive. I made macro's with my toons and could just use them while fighting.

PvP is also a bust. It's going to be guild v guild or deathmatch fights unless you are on a PvP server. Then it's just going to be mindless ganking like every other game. And in PvP you are going to have to deal with FPS laggers and those that people lagging due to poos ISP connections. And in an action combat style game this sucks big time. Then you have to deal with the number of knockdowns, stuns, or knockbacks that characters have. With my Slayer I could almost kill most people in 1 knockdown combo.

I was in the beta for 3-4 months. It's fun at first but gets old/boring rather quick. I started getting that feeling around level 30+.

I'm playing on Blightwood I think it is, name is Sevith if anyone wants to play. I got to 32 during the open beta.

I will not however be doing any type of BBB guild creation. I just don't see the point.

Playing the 7 day free trial. (Jagged Coast server)

my character is a Dog that has no eyes with a pipe and a big stick. Name is Blynd
and he's a priest. I thought it was fitting.

Fuck me....
