What happens to current subscribers?

If you are a current subscriber to TERA your remaining game time will be converted into elite game time and rounded up to the nearest 30-day mark (explained below). Once your game time runs out, your recurring subscription will automatically convert into a recurring elite subscription for $14.99. If you choose to cancel your recurring subscription, your account will be converted into a founder account at the end of the game time.
on the site, it lists the difference and benefits of each account type.

What is founder status?

If you are a current subscriber, founders status lets you keep all the perks you've come to appreciate in the game-only without the subscription. The only way to get founder status is to redeem your copy of TERA. If you have, your account will permanently be granted the founder status, regardless of whether or not you currently play TERA. There is no other way to acquire founder status.

Yeah, for the JP and KR market. Not the NA.

I'd play again if I didn't have to pay 15 bucks just to activate a chronoscroll.

I'm sure the NA will announce it eventually, jsut not yet.

Ktera is going F2P starting January, and a few months later JPtera, the NA tera probably follow a few months after the JPtera conversion.

I haven't logged onto TERA in a loooong time.... but I bought so many chronoscrolls the first weekend they tanked down super cheap so my account is still active until like, 2014. So pretty much was in the same boat as Gulk, even though I quit after my back was broken by enchanting.

I wish this would go free to play. Its no better than the other MMOs that are right now. GW2, SWTOR, Secret World, etc. Hell, WoW needs to go Free 2 Play. I mean no MMO is worth 15$ a month these days. How much gold do those in-game time cards go for? I know I wouldn't have the currency for one.

You can make that much ingame afking (yes doing nearly nothing at all!) nexus for about 3-4 days for a month of game time.

I don't even know what that is. My character ain't even Lv.15 yet. I doubt I'll reach the level cap anytime soon. Definitely not with this 30 trial period.

Nope, its a Lv60 thing, so you got a long ways to go!

I've only plaid for 1 month of game time myself, the rest is chrono scrolls, doesn't take too long to get Lv 60 and some gold if you put some time into it.

I've actually been looking into playing Tera, but I can't get any friends to play with me. How is the end game?

Like extremely repetitive, spam dungeons to get t13 stuff>level up gear>spam harder dungeons to get t14 stuff(or nexus)>level stuff up once you have a high amount of good gear spam> the hardest instances of the game> get money and craft your your gear with nifty shit.
oh and pvp also!

if you play normally you will get 60(cap) in a like a month.

Competitive as mentioned, however gear isn't too hard to get these days. If you don't spend much if any gold lvling, you could buy a full set of T13 at Lv 60, probably even some T14.

The really competitive part is getting yourself recognized to be able to do the queen instance. Most people will want already knowledgeable people in that fight.

Hmm... Yeah, sounds like the end game of more or less every other MMO that has come out in the last two years...

tldr

Buy a box of tera for like $5 from amazon.com or something now, and shove 8 characters onto it, because if you don't, when the game goes F2P, its going to cost you irl money to upgrade bank space n stuff.

Well theirs one thing in the FAQ that makes me wonder about when it really is.

Quote:
Can I buy a box copy of TERA and still get Founder's?

Yes. If you activate a full copy of TERA you will receive permanent founder status for your account. you can do this at any time, even after TERA lifts the subscription.
Presuming they've stopped shipping out the box now...? no idea, so no definite date, so guess the best answer can give is.. when you can no longer find a copy of tera to buy online :P

well I'm happy that its going F2P however, if they don't add new content or different things to do when you hit endgame it won't matter. I loved my tanks, I hated that I couldn't do anything other than que for the same instances or just go enjoy some 1fps nexus events.
