Tera or GW2?

I know this question has been asked to death, and people are tired of hearing it, lol...
But I decided to ask the TESO community which game they would recommend.

Most of the threads I see are either on Tera forums, or GW2 forums, and are totally one sided. But I believe you guys are reasonable ;D

They both look appealing... but the combat in Tera is a big up for me. I could only imagine the intensity of PvP in that game.
But the questing in GW2 seems to be more immersive. Although I heard a big downside for GW2 is the lack of end game content, so that is a big con for me.

The only thing turning me away from Tera atm is the lack of a stealth class. While the Theif in GW2 looks very promising.

I know I'm a little late to the party, but I just recently picked up PC gaming again after like 6 yrs of console gaming. And this question is probably redundant because I'll most likely end up picking them both up in the end. I honestly don't think either one of these will tie me over till TESO is released.

But I still want to know which one I should get first, lol

Thnx in advance ;D

id say GW2 because the questing is just alot more fun there. TERAs combat system is better. but lets face it a combat system with no good content there is just not worth the trouble. not to mention its P2P and the artstyle is mindbogglingly bad.

TERA has a free trial, perhaps you could try that and see what you think of it?

And the WvW in Guild Wars 2 is just so much fun. I wish endgame PvE would have been as fun as that, but that doesn't mean it's bad.

If you really have to make a choice between the two games, I'd say Guild Wars 2.

I tried TERA's trial, didn't like it much. Husband bought me GW2 and it's just hanging on my desktop waiting for it's death sentence (uninstall when I stop procrastinating) . Wasn't a fan of either really, so I'm not much help.

I played Tera for some time, combat system great lots of stuff to do in PvE, main story, dint like it, the reason i stooped playing it, is because i dint like how the classes were build, the only decent one was Slayer, but it still failed when you could only use medium armor, and was pure dps only and no tanking possibility.
Dint play GW2, most of my friends said it sucks and spending money on it to haw no end game content is waste of time, if i want to PvP there is always League of Legends, so until TESO comes out i will be stuck with LoL and some offline games like Farcry3 and skyrim.

League of Legends is a causal game called MOBA... isnt MMORPG.

And I swear someday I'll understand this "No end content" bulls***

And you just CAN'T play lol these days.... Just can't... It is worst than HoN.

I dint like the part of dota2, that they dint improve any thin, its just dota 1 with bather graphics, mage class still loses vs any agility or some straight champs, unlike LoL were mage class can carry the game, sure its has its many flaws, especially in community department, but i haw fun at 1500elo so until TESO comes out i dont see other option.

sorry ewan. but you just dont get the point. agi is supposed to beat an int in lategame. thats why the int ganks him before lategame so the agi never gets fed. its where the skill comes in. its a fine balance. and there are many strategies to actually take advantage of that. like pushstrats, usually int and str heroes are required for that. where you finish a game so fast the enemy has no time to farm.
or a gankstrat where you gank the enemy so hard that they will be underfarmed (think heroes like slardar and pudge)

and dota 2 improved alot: the game is alot smoother, it has less leavers now, a more understandable shop system and proper matchmaking.
