TERA PC - Player Guides & Help: Can two people FULLY play this game together?
Hello Forum,

I am new to Tera and would like to play this game with my friend.

We formed a party and notice that we see each other in the realm together.

However in order to advance in quests each one of our characters has to leave the party at certain points.

Is this a permanent feature of the game?

In other words...I would like this game to play the same way that Marvel Heroes did or as DCUO.

Thank You For Your Time.

if you're leveling via story and not purely through dungeons then there will be random points scattered about where the game requires you to do short solo things-- these things aren't very long nor difficult, just finish them separately then party back up together again.

for the majority of the time and for every dungeon you'll be able to level with your friend.
Yes you can fully play the game with your friend.
There are only a few story quests that require you to be solo to advance the story, but those are few and far in between, not to mention would take only a few minutes. Endgame is mostly party-centric, so you can always group up with your friend.
Thank You So Much for the Replies.

I have high hopes for the game of Tera.

I find the Classes and Races to be unique and interesting.
make sure you are both on the same server as well. I know that is a no brainer, but I figured I would throw that out there to make sure.
I never log in without my partner so it's definitely doable. It's even faster to get things done. If any of you two are up for it, I'd suggest that one should make a tank, healer, or both since it'll be much faster to get into queues later on. But of course, pick the classes that you really want to play above everything else.

Just be sure you don’t have classes that overlap. So two tanks or two healers would be unfortunate
Hello Good People of this forum,

Thank You for the responses so far...BUT...

The answer to my original question seems to be...NO...two people are unable to FULLY play together.

My friend and I are each at level 10 doing the "Anya Quest Line".

At the most intriguing and challenging point of the game so far...we each had to leave our party to advance the quest.

We each then had to fight the "Argon Predator Boss" on our own in a separate instance.

Are We Doing Something Wrong?

Are we at a tutorial part of the game and things will change?

Thank You Again.
that's one of those solo instances i was talking about. it's just one of the very few in the game, just get it done quick and you can party back up again. any time the game forces you two to split don't worry about it, it won't last long.
Yes, you were at tutorial part of the game.
It will change later on, and you'll be needing more than just one friend.
Happy gaming :heart:

The large bulk of the story (well it is not large but there are many mini solo instances in some of the questlines) was meant to be soloed. For example, the level 60-65 storyline has 5 solo instances. Do not worry as you can rejoin your friend after both of you finish the instance.

5-man Dungeons from level 20 all the way to 65 are all party ones, you can make more friends while you are on it!
what people are trying to tell you is yes you can play the game fully with your friend !
you don't have to follow/play the story line , but if you do want to do this there will be some situations where a solo event will occur and some of these are needed to continue the story line but you are not required to do the storyline to get to whats called the end game
I really appreciate all the responses...especially the last two.

Tera is a great game BUT it would have been better if the developers allowed two people to FULLY play through the Main Story line without any interruptions. I honestly do not see why they could not have made this happen. My friend and i will not be playing this game together.

I might try the game solo.

However there are many single player RPG on my shelf that are waiting to be played that should have better stories and more intricate game play.
Such as Skyrim, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Fallout 4 etc etc. One only has so much time in this world to devote to gaming.
