Choosing Your Race: Racial Traits & Hitboxes

Screenshot of races in TERA

In TERA there are seven different races. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses, distinctive looks, different racial traits and hitboxes. If you only care about the looks of your character then choosing a race will be an easy choice for you, but for everyone else a comparison of racial traits will probably be helpful.

Also, if you plan on doing PvP extensively you might want to consider class hitboxes as well. More details on all of this below!

Know Your Classes: Beginners Class Guide

Picking a class is one of the most important things players go through when trying a new game. There are seven different races and everyone has their own reasons for picking one; combine that with 8 different classes, and you get many possible class/race combos, and picking the best one may not just be a matter of personal preference.

Everyone has their own style of play though, so this article will provide you with a beginners breakdown of all classes in TERA, their basic gameplay style, an example of a few abilities and their base stats. Hopefully this guide will help you pick the right one. Before we get to it though, there are two things you should know:

  1. Every class has a damage and weapon damage rating. There’s no difference between physical and magical damage making damage resistance items obsolete. Instead, you can build resistances to critical hits, stuns, knockdowns and similar forms of crowd control.
  2. All classes except the Priest and Mystic have a “Backstep” skill, which is the main dodge skill.

That being said, there are 4 class archetypes in TERA:

TERA Crafting Guide for Beginners

In TERA you can gain equipment either from monster drops and quests, but one of more popular ways to get good gear is by crafting. Professions are often very important in MMORPGs and they are quite helpful in Tera as well. Equipment you can get from quests can be useful, but it’s rarely of high quality, and unless you’re killing rare elites or bosses you won’t get good gear from random drops either.

Crafting provides players with a good alternative to getting good armor and weapons, which is why almost everyone does it. To craft items you need to be at a crafting shop, and have both item recipe and materials required.

TERA Base Class Stats (Infographic)

As many players have been looking for base stats for every class, I decided it would be nice to compile all that basic info into one resource. From now on, if you need to quickly figure out which class’ basic attributes are highest or lowest, the following infographic should give you a good overview.

It includes every class’ Health Points, Mana Points, Damage, Defense, Movement Speed, Critical Hit, Attack Speed and Range. The stats are color coded so you can more easily see which class has average, below average or above average stats in relation to others. I hope you’ll find it useful.
