TERA PC - General Discussion: Raise max lvl when?

When is tera going to raise the max lvl?

TERA PC - General Discussion#2 Elinu105/10/2020, 02:54 AM

The level cap went up just over a year ago so I wouldn't imagine soon

Seriously, why?

Tbh the level 70 cap was handled very poorly, and wasn't made better for several months when people dropped from the game.

Honestly, I hope not anytime soon. Leveling doesn't seem to be a part of the challenge in TERA, and there are many other things that could be given attention to before introducing another level cap.

I started playing the game for the first time weeks ago and was very confused. You go from 1 to 65 in a day, and then from 65 to 70 it's a bit more challenging but still quite fast compared to other MMORPG games I used to play. Besides, there are many people who don't even have a single piece of Kaia gear on their main characters and as Elinu1 said the last level cap update was fairly recent (considering how old the game is).

Yeah I agree, I literally quit playing for a couple of months when it came out because it was so [filtered]

Another level increase like the last would probably kill the game for good...for some reason BHS/Krafton thinks grinding bams for 3-4 weeks straight just to level is "fun." A lot of people quit for good or took a looong break when they found out leveling was nothing but bam grinding.

I'll give them credit for finally making it reasonable. It just took more than a year for them to do it.

TBH, I think they took it too far the other way. It's now ridiculously easy. Even playing casually, it shouldn't be a problem to go from 1-70 in less than a week. I wish they'd find a middle ground.

It seems to me that they went through a "we need to be more like BDO" phase. I assume that's what the new publisher in Korea was pushing them towards, but I have a hard time seeing how they ever hoped for that to work in other markets where the game was never "about" that until now. It was especially bad because you had people who heard about the "expansion" and wanted to come back to the game to try it out, but there was no way for them to experience the new stuff without this massive hurdle grinding old stuff (and even when they did, the new stuff was just more mindless grind), so a ton of people just said "nope." Even now that it's "fixed" (whether it's gotten too easy or not) I wonder how many people just won't give the game a second chance because of this silliness. IMO this is the problem when you have high-ranking executives who are focused exclusive on "improving the metrics" rather than making a more enjoyable game, but I digress...

I would hate to do Basilisks all over again

Lost so many friends from level 70 patch. I would hope they never raise the level cap again...

Part of that problem is that there is no real content to go with an extended leveling experience. Leveling from 1-60 at one time followed the old questing route that let players explore the open world. The bulk majority of that has been slashed with the main quest lines being expedited. A lot of the areas with side quest are never even visited, and this is for people that don't ignore the quest altogether and just dungeon grind from 20 to 65. From 65 to 70 there is almost no content to dedicate hours to leveling. Just a short quest line and dungeon/mob grind.

Other games like FFXIV can get away with an extended leveling process just because they have a massive amount of content to go with it. Even BNS has a more interesting story line and content to go with it's leveling.

All that being said, they can either make it quick and easy or long and arduous. Given the amount of grind in the game already, I'll happily take quick and easy at this point, though a middle ground with real content would be welcome as well.

I refuse to believe that people genuinely want the level cap to be raised. Why? It's unnecessary at so many levels.

if you like to increase the level of the character.
just create a new account and put all the char at 70 again.

I mean, if it were actually an "expansion" in the traditional MMO sense with new zones, quests, dungeons, enemies, skills, the works... then at least it has the potential to be interesting (maybe). When properly done, an expansion can be a good way to bring back lapsed players. But if it's going to be the way they stretched out the last one for maximum grind over time, then I agree that they're better off just adding more content within the existing framework.

I feel like tera is going to have lvl 65 as the max lvl for how many years thats just kinda makes the game a bit boring...just because they raised it a year ago doesn't mean they cant do it again this year .-. i only asked this question bcuz i was curious. Kinda some of y'all got really defensive about it.

Because why not? If they do it properly then i dont see the problem

(Oof i mistakenly and posted this comment on a diff acc..)

The max level is 70 not 65. But I think too many of us still feel the pain in our bones from the last cap increase. A lot of players weren't here for it, and the ones that were either left as so many people mentioned or we slogged through it til our eyes and fingers bled. It was brutal. I am not opposed to a level cap IF they did it right, but history hasn't really supported that.

Fainfall invoking imagine dragons. Jokes aside, Yeah it sucked at the time, now its a joke to get to 70.

How is it 70 when the exp stops at 65 and so what if "history" haven't supported that. Thats not our problem to deal with.

Could you clarify? On PC, anyway, EXP does go all the way to 70 (and they recently streamlined the process to make it easier to reach 70).

Oh... then the problem is that you posted this in the wrong section of the forum. This is the PC section, hence the responses you're getting.

Console section is here:

I do imagine that on Console they will raise the level cap to 70 at some point (since they already did on PC) but hopefully you won't go through the painful process PC had to go through when that happened (and get the improved version we have now).
