TERA is definitely one of the biggest games out there when it comes to massively online role-playing games. Developed by KRAFTON, the title boasts a unique and fluid combat system like no other. Seriously, I really had fun playing this game.

A common question both newcomers and veterans are familiar with is, “Is TERA worth playing in 2019?” In fact, if you visit forums and sites like Reddit, you can often see this question posted. Personally, I have a love/hate relationship with this game. I find it amusing at times, but spending hours playing it just becomes boring.

I have a few things that have kept my hopes high. For starters, the developers still continue to bring new content Just recently, TERA’s Seventh Anniversary arrived. And although it is expected to conclude come Friday, May 31, the developers confirmed releasing new events with continued support. There is also the Weekly Vanguard Bonus, which gives players increased Enhancement Point rewards.

It is safe to say that TERA is a success on its own. The continuous release of content suggests that it continues to be financially viable, otherwise the development team would no longer introduce new content.

TERA is easy on the eyes for newcomers, especially if you are really into combat. Personally, the system feels a little bit better than Black Desert Online in terms of fluidity. But pretty much like BDO, this game involves a lot of grinding. Dungeons tend to run from relatively easy to bullet sponges – and you can really feel the difference.

If you cannot find yourself a party, the game lets you play solo content and dailies. And, oh, let’s not forget crafting and fishing, both of which are pretty much essential. The end game is nice, and I still have had fun every now and then all these years later. Gameplay may grow dull after a while, but that can hold true for just about any game.

If you are looking for an MMO to quench that thirst, I’d recommend TERA. The gameplay may grow dull after a while, but it is still worth it to play. Maybe only stick to short bursts though, to prolong the magic.
