    Hate to bump an old topic, but I hate making new ones about the same old thing much more.

    I played for about an hour this weekend, made a little bunny rabbit sorcerer guy. The game seems pretty standard MMO, I had some go kill X number of Y quests, and go talk to so and so quests. The visuals were nice, I actually really liked the aesthetics of the game, it has a lot of vibrant colors and contrast to make things catch your attention, and really surprised me. Wasn't the best looking game but was far from the worst. The combat was a little weird, but I actually kind of liked it. I've heard complaints it's too slow, but I didn't see any real problem considering my bunny could toss fireballs at about 10FBps. I was most impressed by the animations, every animation for abilities and attacks was very smooth and well done. I wish I had more time to play it, but I had a busy weekend, might pick it up for the 30 Days and just end it there, who knows.

    yea its a pretty fun game and looks good even on my aging 8800gt. the combat system did take some getting used to but its a good one once you learn it and yea the animations were excellent. sadly i don't think i'll be playing much since its pay to play... not that its expensive but i have loans to pay off. I thought it was a good game, and i don't even play that many MMOs.

    Trust me, the combat gets MUCH faster as you progress through the levels. Check out a couple of videos on YouTube of instances or soloing BAMs.

    TERA's main weakness is the dry quests, but honestly because combat is so inherently fun, I dont mind it.

    Also, this will be my first MMO :)

    I played a couple of hours this past Sunday. Characters looks great. Animations look great. Combat was cool. Being forced to use their KB commands with no ability to edit was lame but I figure re-assigning them will be standard when the game releases.

    I didn't play long enough to honestly say if this game is worth my money or not so I hope there is another beta weekend or something. I am tempted.

    There is an open beta weekend coming up soon. I will post dates when I get back to the states tonight.

    You can fully reassign keys, you have to edit them in settings. You assign them to the additional skill shortcut tray, and assign a key to the skill location. Tough to explain, but I may do a short guide sometime.

    I misread that page at first and thought the Open Beta was only 1 day, but that's the Pre-Order Exclusive Event. I might consider pre-purchasing it if it means I get about 40 days worth of play time with the head start and open beta events.

    Just officially pre-ordered myself, and with the 3 month recurring subscription for $12/mo instead of $15.

    Planning some updates for the page, they've got some really awesome updates happening for launch! Look forward to it!

    I can't see myself playing this at launch with GW2 right around the corner. But maybe down the road I might give it a whirl.

    a friend of mine changed his use key to E rather than F, yet F still pops up every time you go to use/interact with something... hopefully they fix that.

    lol he's pre-ordered 4 copies, one if them is the collectors ed.

    Yes, it is $15/mo. There are some deep discounts for pre-ordering and locking in time-based subscriptions, though. To each his own, I've already fallen in love. I swore I would never pay monthly for a game, but I'm eating my words.

    I said the same thing about WoW. It also helps keep the cheaters out.

    Something Guild Wars 1 had a massive problem with, and I expect Guild Wars 2 will as well. I have no problem paying per month for a quality game. I'd rather pay $15 a month then $60 once a month for new games to keep me interested.

    I may be looking for a guild to join, as a couple of my buddies that were going to make a new guild may not be buying TERA. Anybody looking for an Archer? :D

    shameless plug of the guild I'm in. If you want a hardcore guild, I suggest looking elsewhere, as this is a social guild:
