Tera beginner’s guide

Amid the summer MMO releases, Tera presents a unique angle that makes it worth checking out: action combat. This simple change makes a world of difference in a genre still wrapped in archaic trappings. While Tera does employ some traditional MMO mechanics, there’s a lot hidden under the hood that any MMO player--veteran or noob--will want  to read up on before committing the cash and time to a never-ending story. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of everything you’ll want to know about the mechanics and classes of Tera.

    I may not be able to pump a lot of time in this, seeing as I'm still loving SWTOR and anticipating Guild Wars 2, but I'll keep this guide in mind when I give it a trial run. Thanks for the great guide, Ryan! I'll keep it in mind when I try the game.
