TERA is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) in which you fight to protect the Valkyon Federation – an alliance of the world’s surface races – while also battling for glory and power. It is set in a fantasy universe and has players choosing from six different classes (Berserker, Lancer, Mystic, Priest, Slayer, Sorcerer and Warrior) and eight races (Aman, Baraka, Castanics, High Elves, Humans and Popori) to create their warriors. TERA features a dynamic combat system in which gamers have greater choices and delivers engaging, action-based combat. TERA introduces a groundbreaking interactive combat system that resembles real-world fighting, and allows players to respond instantly to real-time combat conditions. In TERA, players calculate distance and direction to coordinate weapon and spell attacks, healers continuously take new battle positions to cast spells. As a result, battles are more tactical, intense, and engaging.
