NA got the crappy versions of these Ohhhhh, I see. No boob sliders like KTERA and we can't change the colors on the standard costumes either.

Costumes come in two versions -- fixed colour, and one that's dyeable (but comes from random item box rather than direct purchase, for bigger moneyhats)

The sliders supposedly don't work with NATera version at the moment, KTera is running on newer code. So once they catch up with the updates to where KTera was when these swimsuits were released, the sliders are likely to be added. Should happen around September.

Also, it's not just boob sliders, but also thigh size sliders. I don't even swamp poop

The EU page implies that even the standard swimsuits are color changeable. In NA only 1 of the typically 3 styles is dyeable.

Hmm yeah, the EU page makes it sound they are only selling the dyable versions of the swimsuits. I don't have account there so can't check it, but I didn't see any outrage on the NA forums about EU getting better deal, so no idea how accurate it is. I did see dyeable version of pretty much all the new swimsuits on the broker in NA version though, so I think they are there, just a subject to the usual loot lottery.

In any case there's new addition to NA version today -- school uniforms

Been playing this now for about a 4 days.  If you want old school UO ganking, go PvP server.  I accidentally did this (don't ask,) and found out quick that anyone can attack anyone outside of town.  That mostly involves lvl 60's instakilling me for giggles.

Quickly went to RP server and having more fun.  This is a more visually appealing WoW with some real action combat aspect to it.  The "real action" becomes more apparent after about 20 lvl.  The mobs get harder so you have to do some work (read: moving around) to kill them.  It is nice because depending on how much work you want to do, you can kill things that would normally be too high lvl.

The game is stable.  My biggest gripe is that it is very senesitive to your bandwidth.  Anytime one of my kids starts to download or stream anything on their phones, tablets, etc., the game freezes up and basically becomes unplayable.  It is the most sensitive to this out of all the other online games I play.

I really haven't run into a reason to pay for anything yet.  I expect I'll hit a reason soon and just might pay since I'm having some fun with it.  I haven't done much with crafting, so that's my next action now that I have a ton of resources.  I'll try PvP a bit later once I get a better feeling for itemization in this game.  Level 24 now.

Yes it can also slow down the pace of your attacks even when things aren't freezing since skills are checked against the server (protecting against client-side abuse). If your router has a QoS (Quality of Service) feature you might want to see if enabling that for your PC helps.

I've been saying this for a long time, TERA is an awesome game that has many, many things just done right. Also, the business model is fantastic that is completely and absolutely free up to level 60. My biggest gripe is exactly the level 60. Once you hit the cap the slot maching/gambling mechanism of enchanting kicks in and can totally drive you nuts, not to mention that you will need to start paying a subscription if you want to keep growing (ie: make money and faction) at a decent rate.

All in all, this is a really good non-sandbox MMORPG with stellar combat and outstanding graphics, and it deserved much more attention.

The slot machine/gambling enchanting mechanic is really only necessary if you want to do the very top end content in a PUG*. There's plenty of level 60 end game content you can do without needing the best gear or if you are in a good guild they probably won't care as much if you don't (and can help you get what you need). You can also get a lot of good stuff just by working on the daily reputation quests which don't require you to have good gear to begin with. After you get that gear, if you want to, you can then partake in the dreaded masterwork enchanting process (to create the best items in the game), but like I said there's plenty of end game stuff you can do at 60 that doesn't require it. Having a subscription which gives you Elite status does help a lot with the reputation grind cause it'll double your reputation earnings for an hour of game time every 24 hours of real time which is significant.

* Items have "item levels" (ilvl) and you'll get kicked if your gear isn't of high enough ilvl and of the right kind

New patch being released today. The highlight is 4 new instances, interestingly aimed at various player numbers. They're made for 3, 5, 7 and 10 player groups, and the smaller ones allow to enter with any group composition. Whether the group is lacking tank, healer, or a damage dealer, they can activate NPC which will perform needed role for them.

My kids and I are enjoying this game an aweful lot. We play an hour or two every night and our guys are in the mid teens. The especially nice thing so far is that all the different abilities fit on our mice buttons. it's nice to not have to have to deal with a bunch of keyboard hotkeys.

I just started subbing since I"m playing the game enough to justify in my own mind.  I figure I've got a few months of interest at least.

I'll look at that tip for bandwidth.   For now I've solved it by getting on my kids about our Netflix usage last month.  Waaaay too much!

I do like the combat setup with chained options.  I agree it is nice to just be able to do most everything with one clicks on the mouse while WASD navigating.  It still feels very active while not being cumbersome.  I also agree this one is a sleeper MMO.  I just stumbled across the discussion of it here and never expected what I found after install.  I definitely suggest trying it for free if you are looking for something different in an MMO.

I need to find a guild now.  Most tell you to apply online outside of the game.  Why is that?  Is the in-game application system borked?

TERA has quite interesting event running during this weekend: They are handing out permanent level 58 characters. While the level cap is 60. All you need to do is to make a new character during the weekend, and it will be auto-leveled on Monday all way to level 58.

Yes you should if you want to try the game with an almost maxed character. However if you haven't played before or don't have characters that have a decent amount of money on them it'll be a bit rough since you won't have enough money to buy skills and/or glyphs.

I have a slayer in the 30s I think; my debate is if I want to roll another slayer since I know how to play them, or something else.

If it's melee, then lancers are very strong in all types of pvp, from duels, though 3v3, battlegrounds and world pvp. Warriors are probably second choice to go. Other melee got some pvp buff recently but not sure how well they work out in practice.

This image which was posted here earlier still sums up the state of PvP AFAIK except that Warriors are now (or were until recently) FoTM for melee as they are very good in 1v1 or 3v3 situations.

If you want to do damage (i.e. kill other players) go with Warrior or Slayer. Berserker you should avoid unless you roll with a regular PvP group that can slow/stun/immobilize enemies for you. Lancer is still main CC class with its leashing and other CC abilities.

Arise!!!  So, this is now on Steam and has apparently become the #1 played MMO on Steam.  I've tried it a few times in the past and it never clicked.  I was even given a free lvl 55 with the appropriate gear and a nice sum of money because of some sort of promotion or test they were doing.  It still didn't appeal to me.  Fast forward to today and I got in and tried out the newest class, the Gunner.  Holy shit!  I know it's early and I don't want to go full Italian and get super hyped up for a game this early on but I haven't had this much fun with a character class in an MMO in a long, long time.  Even looking past the fact the class is restricted to the female high elf and the cat people race, it was so much fun I didn't notice how generic and boring the quests were.  There's quite a few people running around in game, and who knows how long that will last, but I highly recommend at least trying out the Gunner.  There's a even a double monster killing xp event going on now until 02 June to help get past the bland quests and leveling.  Next up, the 2nd newest class, Reaper, which you unlock after reaching 40 and is restricted to...Elins. this guy looks legit  FML.

This game is so damn fun, and possibly the best combat in any MMORPG to date. It has been said so many times since 2011 but for some reason too many don't care/listen. I think it's just great and definitely got better over time. The questing treadmill is a joke but as you said the combat is so fun and the visuals so pretty that it's very easy to simply enjoy the repetition as opposed to what usually happens with this kind of games. I hit a wall after about three months as the progression after a while you are level 60 becomes dependant on too much repetition, dailies, luck and even real money, but overall it's a really cool MMORPG and I am glad someone else around here noticed.

I played it for a long while and really enjoyed it. I especially appreciated that I could effectively use all my skills and stuff using the buttons on my MX518 mouse and one or two keyboard keys. It made combat a lot more fun not having to dick around with a million hotkeys and a million skills. Sort of the opposite of Warhammer Online which had way too many skills, many of which overlapped with other skills.

There used to be a funny stick figure infographic about the classes and what they were like to play. I'll have to go find it.

This game is fantastic but once you hit level 40 or so, the dreadful content in this game makes you quit. You can only take so many kill X quests before you get bored, especially once it starts slowing down. There is also a severe lack of content, even now, from what I hear. And gear is just RNG nuts type of korean stuff.

However, I heard the new class is tits awesome too. One day I'll give it a go again.
