There are six different peoples that have survived these waging battles and formed an alliance, known as the Valkyon Federation, in order to face off against a new and terrible power that has arisen. The Argons, a metallic race from deep beneath the surface of the world, has risen up and pushed the world of Tera to the brink of destruction. Heroes are needed more than ever.
Now it is up to you to heed the call for heroes and take on the role of a powerful warrior. Choose your race, gender and class to create the hero you want to be. This is where you will decide what role you will play on the way to defeating the Argons. Are you a mighty beserker from the Amani people or would you rather master the healing powers of a priest as one of the high elves? Perhaps you would prefer to be one of the Popori, a race of bestial protectors of nature. Whatever you decide, you will have to master the skills of your character and class if you wish to survive, much less win the war.
Battles in Tera take place in real time, either as a group against computer-controlled monster hordes and terrible boss-monsters or against one another. This is where you can really show that you have mastered not only your skills but the tactics needed to be a legendary hero in the free-to-play online game, Tera.
