3. Will get the physical copy early enough for the head start?
4. Will get the option to dl the launcher/ game files right now from enmasse after making said account.
5. Can cancel pre-order if I want from Amazon.

1. Yes
2. Yes, when I applied my code the website told me I was eligible for all CBTs.
3. Probably not. With SWTOR head start, they sent out codes that allowed you to play in the head start, but didn't send out copies until release IIRC. However, since OBT goes straight into full release you shouldn't need the physical copy to be ready for head start?
4. Yes.
5. Yes, any time before they enter the "shipping soon" phase. Once it has entered that phase, there's a chance it may or may not get cancelled, but they don't enter that phase until usually a day or two before.

This is all for Amazon US.

Basically, you can pre-order, get the code, and cancel your pre-order right after.

Dear Amazon.com Customer,

The Amazon Video Games team thanks you for your order of Tera. Now it's time to get you your bonus item.

Here is your bonus code:

This will give you beta access, early access to live servers (3 days before launch), and bonus items (Level 10 City Wheel Earrings, Level 35 Seren's Sand Ring, and Armored Pinto in-game mount).

Of course you do..

Early access to the live servers will expire after their grace period to allow for delivery of physical copies.. You'll need a retail code to keep playing past when the grace period expires (Don't think they've announced how long that will be yet)

Lower level stuff, trying to get up above where the current CBTs are and give people a little peak at what they can expect this weekend.

Just downloaded the entire patch for next beta, again.

Go to install it, "source file checksum error".

This is fucking ridiculous, and my bandwidth can't take it anymore.

If you installed the decensor mods you need to restore your old files before you patch.

Already did. Patch continues to stick every time at either the error I said before, or "retreiving manifest" at 94%.

Looks like I'm not playing this weekend, if this keeps up.

You might try uninstalling and reinstalling the whole game. I know 24 GB LOL but I'm not sure how else to fix it if you have reverted the un-censor patches and still no go.

Yeah, I want to do that but having to download that much all over again after I've had to download this 5+ GB patch about 7 times now, combined with downloading the beta twice (europe and then NA CBT1's), I'm afraid I'm going to hit my download cap.

I never thought I'd actually hit it, but I may this month. D:

Pre-ordered, downloading/installing. The downloader started strong and went at about 2.50MB/s but sometimes drops down to like 200KB/s. I have all week though so no biggie, haha.

So, just to get a confirmation, the Tera GAF guild will be playing on the Vallery of Titans server on Fri(24th), correct?

We'll have players on Serpentis Isle for PVE and on Valley of Titans for PVP. This might help speed up your download:

I'll be streaming the NA CBT this weekend if anyone wants to request specific content or a class. My stream is archived, so even if you don't want, I can still do something so you can watch it later.

Hey does anyone know if there are any sites handing out codes again to this weekends Beta? Last time I know IGN was handing them out but I hadn't seen anything about this weekends test. I was hoping to get some time in before deciding if I want to drop the $50 bucks on this, especially if GW2 is coming out any time around it.

It should be in the OP by now, but if you pre-order from Amazon, wait for the pre-order code and cancel, you're good to try the game for the remainder of the beta tests without having paid anything.

Which of these possibilities would give me the most fun on the long run?

TERA would be the most fun.

That's the update including the warrior change, which I think EME was hoping to have in with the Open Beta or at least launch.

I really wish that post showed exactly what the warrior combo points were used for instead of leaving it open and making them look like dps to all the idiots who want them to be a dps class haha.

*It buffs their aoe taunt skill for more threat and stun duration. Or gives their new level 60 aoe attack skill more damage*

I don't know much about Rift but reading up on that makes it sound like a fancier version of your typical avoidance tank. Warrior is fundamentally different because you're not relying on some dodge% stat to avoid damage, you are manually avoiding the attacks yourself. Which is great if you're a bad enough dude to do it.

If you haven't seen them, these through all the abilities of each class. Every video is well put together, and makes me want to play every single class in this game. :) Mystic is coming next apparently.
