Single Instance zones are zones where any person inside the zone will be able to see all the people present in that zone. In this case, they are all at the same place at that instance. There can be various instances sones in an MMO separated by loading screens. These instance zones can be very helpful in socialisation and clan building. Here are the top 10 single instance MMORPGs

For new players, the controls for Final Fantasy XI might seem a bit complex, but once you adjust to them you can focus on the story and the gameplay. 

8. TERA

Traditionally MMORPGs have a really grindy gameplay where players have to work hard to level up their characters. But TERA is different from the rest. TERA’s action combat system is a class apart considering the fact that it was created more than a decade ago. The gameplay is highly skill dependant with a steep learning curve. As you progress through the game, the huge monsters that roam around the open world will get a lot easier.
