    TERA Classes – Guide for New Players

    There are 13 different classes in TERA, each with their own intricacies. This guide will help you choose your main with less hassle!

    TERA has never stopped getting bigger and better, always focusing on what it always did best – combat! With 13 different classes, there’s literally something for everyone, but it’s not easy to decide which class is actually best for your playstyle. The following guide aims to help your decision-making, by listing all the classes “in-game” style, so that you can browse at your leisure!

    The newest TERA classes tend to be race and / or gender-locked, which is always uncool. What’s even worse, is that there are 2 (!) classes exclusive to Elins – the loli class.

    I suggest checking out all TERA races as well, as this might prove more helpful to some people than jumping straight to classes!

    Warrior


    Races: All
    Class Description: Quick attacks and high mobility make warriors essential to group play, but also very survivable while soloing.For tanking, warriors use their Defensive Stance, Cross Parry, and aggro-generating attacks and shouts.
