Play Tera for Free
At level 60, you likely have mass amounts of gold, and if not, it’s easily obtainable at that high of level. While you are likely dumping most of it in enchants and other supplies, reserve a little each month and you can play Tera for Free!
Chronoscrolls equals Free Tera Game Time
A Chronoscroll is an in-game item that, when redeemed, gives you a month of game time. Players originally obtain Chronoscrolls mostly from purchasing them for $15 from the Tera store on their website. Now, the purpose isn’t to use a chronoscroll you purchase from the store, since 1 month of play time = $15, that would be pointless. Players will sell these scrolls to other players for gold! Currently on the trade brokers on many servers, scrolls can be purchased for roughly 1,000 – 1,500 gold! We have personally seen prices as low as 800 gold for 1 Chonorscroll.
Now again, if you’re level 60, you know that 1,000 gold can be obtained quite easily simply from farming and selling items on the trade broker.
Whether or not you decide to do this is mostly dependent on your financial situation and actually comes down to a formula: Time Needed to Obtain Gold for Scroll > Time it takes to earn $15 dollars in real life = Purchase subscription as normal, and Time it takes to earn $15 dollars in real life > Time Needed to Obtain Gold for Scroll = Purchase a chronoscroll. Keep in mind, chronoscroll prices vary by the day and by server, but since a lot of new players buy them in order to equip their character’s with the best items, the prices are often driven down.
Players who use this technique to play Tera for free likely are
- players who have just insane amounts of gold
- players who either do not currently have jobs
- players with jobs, but are earning minimum wage
Players who likely will just pay the subscription are likely
- players who value Tera gold more than real life cash
- players who have high earning jobs of $40/hour or more
