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!


The Monsters of TERA: Beyond the Ordinary

We can’t even tell you, how often you fought against goblins, ogres and dragons in the past years. With TERA we want to go a different way in many parts of the gameplay, this also includes the creatures you’ll encounter on your journey.

You’ll see monsters you have never seen before, like the immense, greedy Kumises and the twisted, sinister Lokians and we don’t even want to talk about the metallic monstrosities known as the Argons, the main enemy of all races in TERA.

The whole world of TERA is now a dangerous place, citizens are always surrounded by dangers and the monsters have even started to strike at the heart of the Valkyon Federation. Only the brave players stay and fight back the enemies, which are trying to annihilate all known races.

The High Elves

If you decide to play as a high elf in TERA, you also become a part of the worlds most ambitious and ruthless society, but they are also known for their intelligence. The life as a high elf in TERA is not an easy one, with a world where diversity is vital for a race to survive, the Elven pride is as tenacious as the elves themselves.

The High Elves in TERA fill in every role in their typical arrogant but superior way, despite what class they choose. A high elf will always be a tough enemy and hard to read, because they always keep tight when it comes to expressing their emotions. This can be an advantage, but also a problem, as the High Elves need to cooperate and gain the trust of the other races.
High Elves are known for their longevity and their wisdom. They may have joined the Valkyon Federation as the last race, but you shouldn’t doubt that there may be the chance of them being the leaders in the near future.

Classes: Berserker and Priest

Berserker

As a Berserker you trust in solving problems with your huge battle-axe. If you really can’t solve the problem with your axe, the “problem” will most likely end up fleeing in fear anyway. At least that’s how Berserker sees the world in their own eyes. A class full of devastating power, which can be unleashed to its full potential on every battlefield out there.

Berserkers are feared for their rage, but still as a player you need to think tactically, move around the battlefield, evade enemy attacks and unleash the Cyclone attack in the right spot at the right time, to annihilate anyone who comes close to you.

Priest

Movement is always important in TERA, as a Priest it will be one of the keys to succeeding on a battlefield or in supporting your group members. As a Priest you’re not just the basic healbot, standing there and spamming heal after heal. You’ll need to deal damage, lock down enemies and keep moving while trying to keep your group members alive, both with single and manually targeted heal spells and also with casting a Circle of Rejuvenation.

The Priest is the key player to success in both PvE and PvP, friends and foes will also try to protect our get to you. Healing in TERA takes skill, but you’ll earn trust and victory if you do your job right.
