Guild Wars 2 vs. Tera online

by jijasparks • 244,692 views

This is a comparison between combat systems of two highly anticipated MMORPGs, Guild Wars 2 and Tera online. I personally prefer Guild Wars 2 combat, but still Tera combat mechanics are really...

This video is a poor comparison. TERA characters in the levels around 40 and GW2 characters under level 10.. But, since it was recorded well before any open beta, I guess its fine. lol

Shouldn't compare... Tera doesn't seem to give everything you want easily to begin with. Need some really good timing and the ability to aim which, although you tried... You can tell a good PvP battle apart from a regular one

Guild wars has also a olmost true action combat system since you do not need to target the mobs for 90% of the spells. But the reason why guild wars has a better combat system is because you can cancel the animations without the use of like a jump skill in tera online.

Дерьмовенькое видео. Если хотели показать динамику боя . то зачем для Тэры выбирали самых медленных и низкодамагерных бойцов? Бои с пристом и лансером  до ужаса медлительны у обоих самый низкий урон  и спасает их :одного блоки .другого отхил.

I love both games. GW2 PvP is better and WvW but in Tera the PvE combat rocks and the targetting and distance comes into play where as in GW2 you either are in range or you are not.  With Tera it tells you the exact range you are at and your skills tell  you the exact range you must be for it to work or hit or else it will actually still fire but hit short.

Ok, for all you people who are looking at this to choose a MMO game, look at Tera's end game pvp. half the time you dont know whats going on because it is so fast pace and competitive, compared to what i have seen of GW2, Tera is the better game by far. i have been playing Tera every day for the last 2-3 months and i still haven seen half the stuff there is to see and do in Tera.

Tera is still superior to GW2 in so many many ways

This is a very obvious answer here... Tera has one of the best battle systems ever. I played GW2 and enjoyed it a lot, as soon as I started Tera... God it was incredible... tera had so much more to it since you actually aim for the enemy instead of clicking on the enemy and spamming buttons on GW2... Tera's battle system is better and you all know it. :)

Any of the games I listed is better than GW2, besides runescape obviously.  They're also free, which I think is funny.

When you have played Dragon nest or C9 or the best of all TERA there is no going back to traditional MMO , Black deserts might be good down the road lets see if they will polish the gameplay  And Kingdom under fire 2 will be Epic but not yet out in NA , ive enjoy the first one who were not MMO , but the 2 is promising from what ive seen ACtion combat MMO FTW

GW2 vs Tera: Rising = Kingdom Under Fire 2 wins. (hey someone did say they wished tera and gw2 made a baby, kingdom under fire 2 = that baby :)   i hear it's getting released in NA / EU in late 2014 / early 2015... better graphics than tera + gw2 plus it's f2p.  the cashshop is only cosmetics etc...   isn't p2w  considering checking out one of these games until KUF2 comes out =P  cant decide which one...  then again i'm probably the only one here that gets a hard on from a game that can render 10,000 units doing battle.. that doesn't lag.  (what, a game that can render that many units and not lag?!) yea datz right, this game is finally a breath of fresh air from all those other mmo clones out there, something new... but until then hmm what to choose... tera... gw2... .. tera... gw2...   they looked similar...  cept i heard in tera, u can only do 5 battlefields per week if you dont subscribe (wtf? money mongler much?)   the last pvp battle on this clip, gw2 looked better, and seemed a tad more exciting....  though i hear neither game has an end game... tho both games have "crap u can do"  but it all gets repetitive and boring... but then again doesn't every mmo? i started on FFXI (which actually was released 2yrs before WoW and hit 1mil subscribers when WoW was still in dipers, guess u could say WoW copied it?  since everyone says every mmo copies WoW, well WoW copied them? lol)  but yea i started on ffxi, though it lacked pvp in every aspect, it was a very exciting PvE game with something ALWAYS to do, boss hunt, work on gear etc.. they even had bosses u'd fight just to say you fought it "one crew attempted to fight a boss everyone steered clear from, they fought it for 4 days straight with no sleep until one of them ended up hospitalized, and they sued square unix for making an unbeatable boss... i lol'd"  anyways, comparing everygame to THAT game, i have yet to find a game that satisfied my mmo needs... i even tried WoW but found it boring in comparison... after years away from the game, i ended up going back but after the latest expansion i only played for a few days and lost interest b/c i felt the game lacking something (due to my mmo hopping, i've come to love PVP games)  ...  still looking for that all around perfect mmo, one that makes the game fun during the grind of leveling up + Something with insane amount of end game content (like ffxi had) to the point where you never get bored.  i liked WOI's territory wars... territory wars was also in Heroes of the Three Kingdoms (before PW cancelled the game) in HOTK's version was better, u made profit taxing the city in your territory...  but something like that was super exciting..   i heard it's in KUF2 as well which makes me super excited... especially since you can control an entire army behind u... stradegy ftw...    so anyone have any suggestions for an over all amazing game?  or am i stuck deciding between GW2 and TERA?   (dont suggest trash like LOTRO, the UI and graphics make me wanna puke, didn't spend 1500$ on a pc just to play a trashy game like LOTRO idc how good the storyline is, trash is trash.)

Everyone prefers there own game, some like the eastern style more some like the western style more. Tere used to be pay to play and GW2 on sale is kinda normal the game is old now, every game that's b2p or p2p will be cheaper after being on the market for a few years, WoW is cheaper now, FFXI is cheaper now to get started it's not $60.- or €60.- to get started anymore, Lineage II, Tera and Aion used to be P2P and you had to pay 60.- to get started and it was p2p. So it's normal for everygame to get cheaper. If everyone liked the same old MMOPRG, there still would just be FFXI, Lineage, WoW, Everquest and the 1st Guild Wars.

If you crank up Tera's graphic sliders and settings all the way to max (which most people can't do because they have crappy computers and would lag) It's the best looking released MMORPG. Guild Wars 2 it's graphics it's alright slightly better than Rift thats about it, not as good as Tera's BUT the quests and adventures in Guild Wars 2 beats Tera. I wish  they could make a baby, so you would get amazing graphic and amazing adventures and quests. lol

The GW2 combat didn't look like it had much impact in that video--no going airborne or knockdowns, and not really a lot of animations to read. Do you also not need to aim attacks directly at the model you want to hit?  They seem to all be auto-aiming or AoE.

Report spam or abuse
It does not take 70 hours unless you're not even attempting to gain certs. it takes me probably 9-14 hours depending on weather i'm farming or not. it does not need to be fixed because dedicated players get their guns through playing and the less experienced can buy them which pays for the game.

GW2 is assssss. OMG gets boring way to fast.  Tera has a lorrrrrr about it that holds.
Report spam or abuse
I stopped playing GW2, because its just so boring. There is no reason to play a game in which u can get instantly 80 for PVP. Also there are way less skills! And they are only changeable trough the change of your weapon. Also the crappy downgrade at lower level districts sucks. If GW2 had a similiar skill system to TERA, no downgrade and not such PVP instant 80 thingy, then it would have been my favourite.
Report spam or abuse
Hmmmm no instant 80 PvP? If just such a thing did exist? Are you stupid? Have you heard of WvWvW? Get you facts straight! You didn't even play GW2.

I was a pretty addicted Guild Wars 2 Player. Over 8 Level 80 Characters with thousands of stuff achieved, fine-tuned to detail and highly customized optics, lore-fitting and personality fitting character-names. I've invested a high amount of time and money into it. I did "Highlevel"-PvE, sPvP, Buildcraft, acquired a high amount of Armor- and Weapon-Sets, was pretty active in the Forums and even did command on a daily-basis (as in not feeling like a god, but more like to help people). Don't get me wrong I'm not an Achievement-Grinder and only have like 6k AP. I enjoyed the core content, and took my time. I don't have a single Legendary. I'm just pretty disappointed by how this game has been developing this last year. Not only with it 's growingly shallow or unfriendly community, and the missing continued lore but also how many of their team lately behave (for example in their Livestreams on Twitch, where they literally just ban everyone that are asking the wrong questions once, not matter how political they're asked to "keep things centered on the current flavor of the Stream"). Aside from the Balance jokes that are more like pushing Bricks around in favor of the next Meta of the Quarter. It begins to feel just like World of Warcraft when it changed to the worse. I'm looking into Everquest Next and Landcraft but am sceptical and don't expect to much from it. Guild Wars 2 is certainly not what they promised it to be when you get around the initial and mid term shiney core content (that is pretty left unfinished and unpolished, ever since the release aside from empty Wrappers and small Updates). They try to keep you addicted to that shiney with new time-limited (as in gone for an uncertain amount or even forever) Skin- and AP-Grind every 2 weeks but once you get a minute to breath and think about it you'll feel like you have been fooled. Especially since most of it is pointing more and more towards the Gemshop recently. And trust me I gave them enough money already worth 4 Extensions at least as I wanted them to be moving forward with the promising start they've showed. But it seems like it 's not in their focus anymore. Only the short-living, money-grabbing, tail-jumping business. Just like having a quicky, for which you either might have to pay or for which you might get pocketmoney. On a daily / weekly / 2-weekly / monthly basis. With a feeling like you're stuck, just like the Main-Actor in Groundhog Day or The Truman Show. Maybe I'll be having a glimpse of Tera at some point. Taking a break from gaming at all since it 's all to time consuming and looking like it 's trying to addict me with the simliar everboring shallow stuff (lol). Still it looks at lot more skill based gaming (f.e. with it 's targeting similiar to fps) and might not be that overflooded by Grunts and Skritts.

Sorry but you are still stuck in old mmo world. True Gear is not what makes a superior character in Guild Wars 2 its your skill and how you use your build. First of all anyone in GW2 can get decent gear but what makes the difference is knowing When to dodge, When to cripple, when to heal. You must know your build inside out as well as other classes. In the end of the day if you lose in a pvp or Wvw you have been outplayed by another player.

Tera has better combat and absolutely nothing else. It'd a very tedious game that gives you two tutorials (lvl20 prologue + starter island) that teach you the same things twice, does nothing new or out of the ordinary outside of it's combat and hopes that solid combat alone will keep you playing. Not that GW2's better leveling but borked endgame with a lack of both vertical progression (stats) and horizontal progression (new abilities/skills) and lack of class balance is a godsend either.

I heard gw2 has no end game and you can pvp at like lv 1 so I heard it sucks. Someone prove me wrong and convince me to buy the game because its better than tera.

I played wow and tera and all I have to say is that tera is wonderful, you need to move, survive, and with this chain skills and glyphs, personalize too each player. Finally PvE is challenging not as in wow, not sure if worth buying GW2 only know gameplays.

I have a life, if i did not have one i would not be in existence to type this to you, nor would it be possible for me to be enlightened by the godliness of the elin. You are the one, while angry due to not being able to experience the elin master race, is replying back to someone that experiences the god-tier race on a day to day basis. Please dont lie to yourself, you cause physical harm hourly due to not being able to experience such a god-race, you must learn to be truthful to yourself.

As someone whos played C9 and loved that combat I can say try GW2. If you made it through the boredom of C9 soloing/leveling then I can say you will have a ton of fun leveling in GW2 in PVE(especially with friends) I stopped playing Tera because it was too generic and dated in all areas but combat and GW2 is pretty awesome I only enjoy 2 games more. AoC and Rift.

Well, that's why I think Tera's combat is more interesting. You don't spam skills as soon as they are out off CD, you try to create an opening where you can safely attack. It's kind of a fighting game system like tekken or SF4, you don't attack recklessely because it renders you vulnerable to retaliation. "Action game" does not equate to "moving at will", it's all about range, timing, and prediction of enemie's moves.

IF you're going to compare two games, make sure you chooose interesting footage. TERA is all about Endgame Dungeon PvE, you're showing some terrible BAM solo's.. That's just NOT what the game is about. TERA PvP is about Fraywind Canyon mostly (and Corsairs' Stronghold now too), but the PvP footage you're using is Slayer vs. Priest 1v1, worst footage ever. It's not even showing what the game is about. If you want PvP footage, choose some from Battlegrounds.

i like everything in gw2 except the the gears and no guild battles. u dont feel your character is superior except for cosmetics in gw2 which any noob can gain as long as they grind out the golds via dungeons. as for guild battles, "guild" wars 2 have none, unless u organise a WvWvW with your guild which becomes extremely laggy in zerges and boring since you just basically charge in with everyone, if you die or not its pretty much down to which side spam aoe first.

I think i unterstand why: In GW2 you haven't to aim directly for your enemy, you will hit or not it's a chance given from system and in tera u have to aim for your enemy and if you miss or not is a thing of gameskill same goes for taking damage too, in GW2 it's hard to dodge an enemy atack and again the system plays with u if u will get dmg or not but in tera its kind of skill if u can dodge and read the movements of ur enemy or not + the battleparts of TERA were awfull for it's real potential!

I feel so bad, such peasantry has lead you to crying in a corner due to not being able to experience the elin god race, if only someone of such low tier value could one day even possibly dream of experiencing for only a second what is the godliness and amazingness that the elins are, that would be the highlight of your life. Im sure everyone that gets to experience the elin god race on a day to day basis feels pity for you and going every day continuously being a peasant and not experiencing it.
