TERA might be an Asian MMORPG, but it’s the one with the most Western influences, and maybe for that reason it has lasted so long in the market – not an easy feat for MMOs, especially nowadays. One of the “classic MMORPG” mechanics you’ll find in TERA, is the race & class combinations, with Races offering Racial Skills / Passives, in order to make each one more unique – and of course please min-maxers!

There are 7 different races in TERA, each one being completely unique from the others, offering a nice variation of aesthetics as well as Lore in the game. There are a few gender locks, and race / class locks. Most people don’t particularly like locks, but WoW’s been doing it for decades – and you’ll find a lot of WoW in TERA. 😉

For “some” reason, the only race that isn’t restricted to any class (on the other hand has two (!) exclusive classes just for them), is.. you guessed it. Elins! Yes.. the loli class. I’m not sure what’s the ultimate purpose of the developers with this decision, so I’ll just leave it at that.

You can check the helpful table below, to instantly identify the available race / class combinations, and keep on reading to dicover the lore & racial passives of each TERA race.

Human Castanic Aman High Elf Popori Elin Baraka
Warrior
Mystic
Lancer
Reaper
Slayer
Gunner
Berserker
Brawler
Sorcerer
Ninja
Archer
Valkyrie
Priest

 These race / class combinations are only available to female characters.

Human

Gender: Male or Female
Lore: Millennia of wandering brought the humans into contact with every other race living in the world of TERA. Their knowledge and undertsanding of the civilized races made them the perfect coordinators for building an allied society. The Valkyon Federation represents a new hope for the world, with humans at its core.

Alone we gain hope, together we gain victory.
