What Is TERA?


TERA actually stands for The Exiled Realms of Arborea. An Action MMO from Bluehole Studios





This looks suspiciously KOREAN. Why should I give two flips about this?

It is. But don't fret. Remember what I said about Action MMO? A lot of people may not realize, but TERA is claimed to play like a combination of Monster Hunter and Phantasy Star Online. What this means is aside from numbers popping up letting you know how much you hit or got hit for, there's not much in the way of auto-targeting. You have a melee attack? You better be facing the right way. You have a direct damage spell? You better hope you can aim semi-well or you may find yourself shooting airballs and before you know it you have an empty mana bar with not much to show for it!

Okay, Okay. The gameplay seems neat but this still looks VERY Korean

Oh you meant GRIND. I wish I could say I could alleviate your troubles but the Localization crew over at En Masse have assured us that they're working hard to mask that aspect of the genre, adding quests and rewriting lore to suit more western palettes. Standard mmo tropes do apply here, however. Kill X of Y, Bring me X body parts, craft this junk I could walk across the street and get but I'm a lazy sod. you get the deal.

Hmmm....tell me more, salesman

What we know so far:
  • 7 races with their own racial skills
  • 8 classes that any of the 7 races can become
  • A political system in the works where top groups of players are voted into power and given dominion over a province. Receiving perks such as guild keeps, special mounts, vendors along with being able to set a tax over their region.

Tax? What the HELL man?! I don't wanna give my hard earned greed monies to some random dick!

Not to worry! A group of geese trying to bleed the player base dry? Vote them out! It's that simple!

So about these races/classes?


Races:
Aman.jpg

Dragonfolk, Burly mean and strong. Value freedom and strength above all other things. Dragon pimps representing The iron forged dome of Kaiator

Baraka.jpg

Huge genderless learned golem folk. They live in libraries since their home town was snuffed out. There's no female to their race. Which makes the fact that they have one really built up arm like Left 4 Dead 2 Chargers suspicious and also makes me question that "genderless" thing. Maybe they just mean "ronery"

Castanic.jpg

Blood Elf style done right mixed with Night Elf douchebaggery. The males are Iggy pop. And the females wear plate thongs. Their home city is The Darkdeep Underblack. In the middle of scenic New Jersey.


Highelves.jpg

Legolas and company. Only with slightly less "I'm better than you". Their home city is Fantasia. And no they can't talk to you because they really must be getting back to their fantastic magical oasis.

Elin.jpg

Magical Flower Children made by the goddess Elinu. They're also all apparently bitchy, tsundere misanthropes. yes we know. No, we're not having that conversation.


Popori.jpg

Elin Bioweapons gone horribly right The best damn race in the game.


Human.jpg

The frontiersmen and the ground pounders. All the males look like Lou Ferrigno. The chicks all look like.....I guess some really hot human chick, pick your poison. They live in a giant wheel. Your argument is invalid.

What Class Should I pick!?

Watch this first


Archer.jpg
Hunters only without the pets. I hope you like third-person shooters because that's basically what playing an Archer is.

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/archer


Berserker.jpg
"HULK SMASH!" These guys are your heavy hitters, slow and steady before they land that one hit that leaves them crying uncle.

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/berserker


Lancer.jpg
Your tank class. Stuns and aggro abilities. You also have to manually block things. If you like playing Balrog or Guile in SF4 you should feel right at home here.

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/lancer


Mystic.jpg
Support Healer that relies droppable orbs and auras to support their group. You will learn to love their blue balls.

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/mystic


Priest.jpg
Mostly aoe heals with damage absorption shields. It's like if a Holy priest and a Disc priest stopped fucking around and had a baby.

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/priest


Slayer.jpg
Dance of blades all day erryday, AOE melee specialist. Sort of a middle ground between the power of a berserker and the mobility of a warrior

http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/slayer


Sorcerer.jpg
Every mage ever. Massive firepower but made out of wet tissue and popsicle sticks. Avoid danger accordingly
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5eDf-HY8U
http://tera.enmasse.com/game-guide/classes/sorcerer


Warrior.jpg
A dual wielding cyclone. Their playstyle changes every 10 levels and are probably the most JOHN FUCKING MADDEN class in the game. They're marked the hardest for a reason

Enchanting

Info courtesy Maywind

Here's something: http://tera-europe.com/guides/enchantment-guide.html

It doesn't cover masterworking, however. Normal enigmatic gears can only be enchanted up to +9. However, for any enigmatic gear piece that doesn't say "Cannot be made into masterwork" on the bottom of its stats pop-up, you can masterwork it (enchant up to +12). You'll have to use a Master Enigmatic Scroll to seal the item and an Intricate Identification Scroll to unseal it to reveal the stats. The chance to masterwork an item is pretty low (3%), so you'll have to keep on sealing and identifying using Master Enigmatic Scroll and Intricate Identification Scroll until you proc the masterwork. You'll know you successfully masterworked when the item name changes from "Sword of Doom" to "Masterwork Sword of Doom". Once the item is masterworked, you can only use Master Enigmatic Scroll and Intricate Identification Scroll to reroll the stats. To enchant a masterwork +10 to +12, you'll need to use the pink Master Alkahest.

Since the enchanting patch, people generally use the following colored fodders for the specific enchantment levels:

+1 to +3: white fodder
+4 to +6: green fodder
+7 to +9: blue fodder
+10 to +12: gold fodder

However, you have to remember despite the enchanting improvements, RNG is still RNG. It's entirely possible to be super unlucky and fail a couple times in a row even if you use gold fodder and at the same time, I know a guildie who +12ed his weapon using a green fodder.

    If you have a bit of time would you please modify your character note in the guild tab and list your forum name? This would help out so much!

    Also groups, there are 30% XP buffs on the AH for pretty cheap. If you need them for next week please let me know and I will grab a stack for your group.

    Group 3 is wrapped up. Just four of us, took a bit to get all together. One character (an_alt?) forgot to redeem a few quests in the town and got KO'd in the Gorge; we'll continue next week.

    Slayer isn't quite as satisfying as Berzerker; all my specials have a windup time and don't go off until the enemy's already dead. Still pretty fun but it really makes me wish we had Monster Hunter Frontier or something.

    The trick with Slayers is to correctly use their "if you use X then Y will come out almost instantly" links and abilities. If you've not unlocked them yet just wait a bit, like many classes Slayers don't really get most of their class kit until level 20 or so.

    Slayers also don't get the final power in their main combo chain until like 58. A slayer at end game plays very quickly and responsively. Slower than a warrior, but everything is slower than warriors.

    I'm sad that there is a Tera renaissance going on when I am so completely Tera'ed out. I played it most of the summer.

    Pretty much we got to the southern campsite- cleaned out all the missions except Picking up the Pieces. I figure next week we'll make Lumbertown and try to grind as hard as possible.

    Unless it specifically says "account based" (like some of the mounts), it's just for which ever character uses it. EG, if you buy a police uniform, you can pass it around, store it in your bank, etc, but as soon as you put in ON one of your characters, it's soulbound to that character.

  • GlalGlal Registered User regular
    Which is a pain, when the one instance of the item you have clips through that character's face and is thus unusable... :(

  • Pixelated PixiePixelated Pixie Future world ruler Registered User regular
    It also makes it darn expensive keeping 6 or 7 characters dressed up in fancy costumes... and hats... and glasses... and wings...

    I'm thinking about remaking my Warrior on Tempest Reach since there's a lot more people to play with around here. Getting back to 40 is gonna be annoying tho but now that I know what's worth keeping and to mine all the things and get all the plant parts etcetc, getting money shouldn't be that hard.

    Yeah, it's not super-far from where you left off.

    I must apologize to my Group 1 squaddies for my being so incredibly rubbish at certain aspects. (@an_alt, I want you to know you are NOT the only one who was struggling.) Thank you all for your patience as I got up to speed with things like:

    1. Being able to use the chat.
    2. Remembering to turn in quests.
    3. Remembering to get the sodding quests in the first place. See: the main quest. Yeesh.

    Lumbertown looks cool from the screenshots, looking forward to getting there.

    A special shoutout to @The Pink Skull, awesome as always, who was the one who actually got me going on the chat in the game because she saw my pleas for help as she was playing XCOM. You're bloody awesome, you are!

    Virtually anything you could buy from the cash shop you can also buy for in-game gold through the trade broker. Just don't fall for some of the gimmicky prices. Basically, a gold:points ratio of 11:1 or 12:1 is fair. More than that, someone is gouging.
