Free Character Slot
The latest update also brings players an additional character slot, which is not restricted to the new class. All users can take advantage of this extra slot for their registered accounts simply by logging in by 12/5/2015. Players then receive a token via the in-game postal system, which they can use to unlock their free lot. This additional slot increases the number of playable characters available per server from twelve to thirteen.
Harmonic Synthesis of Magic and Technology
Recruited from the High Elves and Castanic races, the Gunner channels magical energy into her weapon and unleashes it in well-aimed and powerful attacks. The Gunner’s gameplay dovetails beautifully into TERA’s combat system, which with its movement-intensive battles offers a 3rd person shooter combat style unique to MMOs. In addition to the cool and calculating use of her weapon, the Gunner can employ her technical expertise to summon mechanical companions to heal and support her in battle.
TERA is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) set in a graphically stunning fantasy universe. TERA’s uniqueness revolves around its groundbreaking True Action Combat. This system allows the players to truly master their characters and to aim with no automatic targeting system, thus pushing the boundaries of the MMO genre. Players and press both warmly received TERA, praising its state of the art visuals and notable innovations such as its political system. TERA has been playable free of charge since February 2013 and is available for download at tera.gameforge.com.
