I Can’t Wait To Not Do ThisFebruary 11, 2012 at 7:24 am | Posted in mmorpg | 24 Comments

This is TERA, or The Exiled Realm of Arborea. It’s an action MMORPG that promises less standing around to cast or attack, more active movement, and gigantic…. monsters.
The people in this screenshot have arrived at a bottleneck. They all (apparently) need to separately kill a monster for a quest. Since it’s beta people are being relatively well behaved and lining up in order to get their turn to kill him.
I saw this screenshot on reddit and started thinking. I can’t wait to not do this.
I can’t blame TERA, it’s a common enough MMO problem. I can’t even really say it’s all bad. Some times hanging around waiting for stuff to spawn starts a conversation, a social interaction, a funny anecdote. Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.
Still. I can’t help but think this sort of quest design was broken from the start.
