I dabbled in the open beta for a bit, and while the graphics are outstanding-- it's hands down the most beautiful MMO I've ever played-- most of the game felt very... underwhelming. It felt as though too much effort was put into the graphics and not into the actual content. The quests were fairly dull; the "action-oriented combat", while different, just got dry and repetitive fairly quickly and I got tired of mashing the mouse button over and over again and casting the occasional ability with a number key; even the story isn't all that engaging. It's not a horrible game, but it's just not as spectacular as it was claimed to be. In my opinion outside of the gorgeous graphics most of the game is just mediocre.

I'd probably play it if it was free-to-play, but I wouldn't pay a monthly free to play it. I just didn't have much fun when I played it in the open beta.

Take away grinding? It's an MMO, there's grinding, and lots of it. I can't think of a single MMO that doesn't have some type of grinding.

Dunno. I've never heard that, but I also don't play Tera.
But there is more than just level grinding. There's still grinding for gold/currency, for armor, loot, crafting components... In MMOs grinding is never truly over. XD

When I played Tera, albeit briefly, the leveling didn't seem extremely difficult, but it didn't seem all that easy, either. But it may have been adjusted since I played it, and, like I said, I didn't play it very long to really know for certain.

If you want a grind... play Star Wars: The Old Republic. Leveling isn't too bad, but you're constantly grinding for credits (in-game currency) because everything is so darned expensive. And for some reason I still play it...
Or EVE Online. I hear that's a grind from the moment you log in. A grind that never ends. :P
