TERA Headstarts Today and Tomorrow

The TERA Website and the TERA Europe Website are each counting down the days to the official launch of this action-oriented MMORPG. This also means the game's headstart programs are getting underway this weekend, allowing those who've preordered the game the chance to get going in the game world. This page has details on the European headstart which gets underway today, and this page explains the North American headstart, which begins tomorrow.

Casters in combat and 50gb install: Its a 11gb download and a 26gb install. Larger then most MMOs today, but not by much. Casters can cast spells while in motion, just not all of them. Some you can, some you can't. Generally speaking, it is fair to say that you ca't most of the time. They make up for this by having very quick cooldowns and cast times for most spells. As for the "glorified cannon" analogy...well....yeah....is that not the case for most MMOS? The mages, sorcerers, warlocks, priests, etc are glass cannons the vast majority of the time. Also, to say that a melee character can move while they are attacking is not completely accurate. They can some of the time, some of the time they can't, and yet other times they move as part of the attack animation.

If it still doesn't sound like your cup of tea, cool, I just thought you would want a more accurate description.
Appreciate the clarifications. I did see several reports of the install taking literally days to download. I actually started the download and let it run overnight. It was barely over 10% the next morning.

As for the caster thing, yes it does sound pretty similar to most MMOs, which is why I was kind of disappointed. I'm looking for something different than most MMOs because I don't really enjoy the typical combat in them. Sounds like this one might be a bit different, but not much. Maybe I'll check back later and see if anything is different.
