Tera is a free2play 3D action MMORPG which has a unique combat system compared to traditional MMORPGs. In Tera, the players venture through the world as one of seven playable races. Those races are Amans, Barakas, Castanics, Elins, High Elves, Humans and Poporis. The world is marvellous design and shows of with spectacular visuals.
The world of Tera was once created by two Titans that began to dream and created this beautiful land. Many years later, it was attacked by Argons. No one knows their motives. But it is the player’s duty to fight against them and protect their homeland.
Tera comes with a non-targeting combat system, where players have direct control over their characters and require them to have a good positioning, as well as good aiming and timing to take down their foes. The playstyle is variable depending on the choice of class and skills which players want to use. But the customization doesn’t stop at the way a player fight but also continues at the appearance of his character. Bluehole Studios understood that it is important for players to be unique and so they give players a wide range of possibilities to customise their characters.
Another interesting feature of Tera is the political system. Players can vote to make one of the players a Matriarch/Patriarch. This player has access to rare patterns, but most important he can set the tax prices on vendors for this zone. But voting isn’t the only option. Players can also fight for this control in PvP arenas.
