Classes of TERA Online
Like most MMOs, the TERA Online classes include your tank, healer, damage dealer and ranged DPS type classes. At this stage there is an absence of a true rogue class, a class that is usually quite popular. The game developers (Devs) state that their class choices reflect what they thought would work well in a group, however launch is only the beginning. While no promises are being made, Devs have been known to add extra classes and races in future expansions. Currently, the classes that will be available at launch for TERA Online are:
Archer – Thinning enemies ranks with focussed shots and lethal arrow showers.
Beserker – These damage dealers attack with precision and strength, using their battle axe to block attacks and smash enemies.
Lancer – A tank class that wield the largest weapons and are almost unstoppable. They attack and defend equally well and their lance gives them a long reach during combat.
Mystic – Channelling the primal forces of TERA, the mystics can heal their friends and use magical attacks against enemies. They can drain their enemies' essence and use it to bolster their allies.
Priest – Channelling the power of gods, these priests use divine magic to heal friends and smite enemies.
Slayer – This damage dealer unleashes death and destruction with their mighty greatsword. Slayers use brute force to knock down and kill enemies.
Sorcerer – Drawing on the purest magic, sorcerers can inflict damage on many foes at once. The masters of mysterious forces and ranged attacks, a capable sorcerer is essential in battle.
Warrior – A tank class that is capable of lightning-fast speed during battle. Wielding dual blades, the warrior is versatile and defeats his enemy using timing and accuracy over brute force.
