TERA raises the bar, setting new standards in the gaming industry. It is a visually stunning world with graphic quality above all other games in the industry. You will experience a new ground-breaking gameplay system where stereotypes of traditional MMORPGs will be broken. You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. No more "pointing and clicking" and playing combat relay with the enemies. Furthermore, not only do you control the action, TERA is also set in a world where the players will dictate the flow of the economy and individually impact the community environment.
In TERA, players master their destiny in a richly detailed game world with a pioneering dynamic combat system. Individual player actions can transform the balance of power in a world where old rivalries are erased, and disparate races must form a common federation to stave off destruction by marauding monsters and warring gods.
You become part of the realm of Arborea, created by the Ancient Gods. You defend your race in a fantasy world where your creators, descendents of the Ancient Gods, have warred upon each other centuries ago. Join forces and become part of a vast world in constant conflict, where new battles and weaponry skills will leave you grasping for more as you become immersed in the realm of Arborea. Take charge and become the hero the world seeks!
Quests in TERA: You’re the Star of the Story
Most gamers understand that quests drive gameplay, but in TERA they drive the story as well. TERA has more than a thousand quests, and together they put the player in the driver’s seat, acting to change the future of the entire world. TERA’s quests might bring a grin to your cheeks or a tear to your eye, but they’ll definitely make you the center of the story—whether you’re a new player learning the ropes or a cagey veteran standing among the game’s most powerful characters, facing enemies of godlike power.
Featured Race: Human
“I’ve got family from there. Actually, I’ve got family from everywhere.” —a human explains his cosmopolitan outlook.
Everyone thinks they know humans. Nothing like real-world experience, right? TERA’s humans might feel familiar, but the world of TERA has profoundly shaped human culture and outlook. Cursed by an angry god, TERA’s humans spent a hundred generations wandering from continent to continent, unable to settle in one place for long. Throughout human history, they’ve been nomads, refugees, and slaves.
The lessons humans learned during those hard centuries paid off when the world faced a threat unlike any other: the metallic, all-consuming argons. Human flexibility, perseverance, and pragmatism made them the perfect choice to found the Valkyon Federation, unite the other races, and fight back against the argon menace.
Featured Classes: Mystic and Sorcerer
Mystics have an instinctive understanding of the ancient magic that formed the world of TERA, and they tap into this power to summon thralls to fight on their behalf, invoke curses against their enemies, and heal or resurrect fallen friends. For a sorcerer, healing is what the bad guys have to do—after they’ve been blasted with Magma Bomb, slowed to a crawl with Time Gyre, or nigh-obliterated with Void Pulse. A sorcerer channels magic through a floating disc that acts like a lens, and woe betide anyone caught in its focus.
