TERA teaches you how to fly above your dreams

Yes, you may have heard that flying mounts are indeed on their way to TERA. But exactly how will you turn the sky into your personal playground? Happily, En Masse has put out a helpful guide to turn you into a fantasy aviator.

According to the guide, players can unlock the quest to gain flight at level 65. TERA will give players one mount for free, with others available in the store. You should know that the game has restricted airspace, as only the zones of Velika, Val Oriyn, and Highwatch allow flight. Mounts will only be able to fly for so long before being forced to land, so make sure you keep an eye on how many seconds of airtime that you have left.

The studio said that flight won’t automatically allow you to bypass all of the landmass: “Each free-fly zone has its own limit on how high you can go on a flying mount. This is usually enough to get over tall terrain and give you a good view of the countryside… but it’s not enough to fly over all obstacles in a given zone.”

ManastuUtakata I’m still waiting for them to drop the news that it’s a free mount for a limited time. EME has developed a pretty serious addiction to time-limited items recently. Namely with their Velik’s Grand Hunt giving out mostly time-limited items like the helms and underarmor, to the new Caiman Egg event giving you silly fireworks and time-limited blue halos with a minuscule chance of getting a permanent one.

As someone who’s played this game for 3 years~ and quit quite a few months ago, I’m honestly at a loss for words.
Not only is the beginning CGI (showing relatively 0 actual gameplay/how the feature will look in the game) but… I actually got my hopes up. ‘Hey this game is great! Why did I ever leave it?’
Then I saw it. Elin.
This game has sold its living core and soul for these… Things. And now they’re initiating real brands into their game, namely Hello Kitty. Might as well bury the immersion right then and there, as if car mounts and cheerleader outfits didn’t tip the glass over already.
And now they… Slap two clusters on particles on mounts and call them ‘winged’ mounts? Recycling yet again? One mount free for all players, eh? Classic EME. Gives you a little bit of bait in to reel you into buying their whale shop items afterwards. Optional? Yes. However, with most pay-to-win items… Eh, doesn’t seem as optional as it seems necessary to buy cash shop items.

The decent communityfolk is gone, the RP community is dead.
Just pull the plug on it already. On this abomination of a game that once aspired to greatness.

“TERA will give players one mount for free…”
This is what they originally did with ground mounts. So I am glad flying is not an ability exclusively tied to the whale shop.

I guess the developers wanted to make you feel that flying comes with great responsibilities for this game.

I’m going to say it again – throwing wings on old mounts that have no business having wings instead of creating new mounts is just pure laziness.

Every MMO should have flying mounts. 
Hello Cryptic?

I wish more MMOs allowed unconstrained flight. Constrained flight is welcome, but always feels like a tacked-on mechanic to prevent you from experiencing the content devs want to force you through on the ground. Just give us content in the air! Having an unrestricted flying mount in EQII was a joy. When you need to go hike back to a quest hub halfway across the zone 16 times to finish all the quests there, it helps to be able to skip grinding through the mobs both ways on each trip. 
Even better would be building flying mechanics into the game from the get-go. Make places that I _need_ to fly to. Add in-flight combat and gathering. Give me epic things to fly around on. A lot could be learned from a close examination of the best parts of flight in Aion, EQII, and Vanguard.
