What is the point of having quests to do!

I'm trying to do the story quests for this game but I keep getting left behind by everyone who just wants to clear dungeons. I understand that grinding gets me to max level faster, but why have any quests if I'm ultimately just going to skip them? I feel like there has to be some sort of benefit to questing vs just grinding, Otherwise, where is the incentive?


  • You play another single player game, red dead redemption for example, you need incentive to play through the campaign? do it for the experience (experience, not the experience you use to level up) if you want to, don't do it if you don't want to, this game is amazing as it give different players options and each is viable. There are small number of players actually enjoyed questing and travel around the world, and I respect that
  • You can complete all remaining quest for fun, after hit 65 don’t worry if you miss one story quest, more later you can complete it and enjoy stories or cut scenes.
  • You're not the only one :) I'm trying to complete the story in order as best I can, only saving a quest to do later if I can't finish it solo quite yet. I rushed through at launch and don't want to do that again.
  • I think I've read just about every piece of dialogue in the game at least once. In my first play though way back in 2013, I started by reading everything but was leveling slowly with some friends. Eventually they just wanted to do the story quests and dungeons so I ended up skipping a lot. We always did the story quests together (that was actually how you leveled back then) and then side quests on our own time. Later I went and leveled my second char alone (a mystic for nexus) and I just went through and read everything.

    In terms of incentive there aren't too many currently. There are certainly a lot of achievements which are nice if you want laurels, but not too much else. Back in the day doing the Argon War and level 65 quests was helpful for the 4k and 7k gold respectively. With the amount of inflation in modern TERA however, you're better off doing other things if you want gold. The story is interesting though and worth a read imo. There's also quite a few quirky side quests that will be sure to put a smile on your face. I guess the biggest thing is, don't just complete the quests for a reward, but complete them for the experience.
