Elves are often portrayed as gentle, fragile archers. So is not the case with Tera's High Elves, who, while agile, have the ability to kick some serious butt. The game's lore states that the High Elves were once conquerors of the world, battling ancient giants for supremacy. That, obviously, didn't end well, and their hubris led to their downfall. Now they've shaped up, and work to save the world, instead of trying to take it over.
In an exclusive trailer for the High Elf race, developer Bluehole Studio shows off the race's more violent side, with elves hacking and slashing apart hordes of enemies. Take a look, and check out some images above.
So, think you'll play a High Elf when Tera comes out? Or are you planning on jumping in to one of the other races? Check out our TERA preview of the ten greatest moments from the closed beta to find out more, and check back later this week for another exclusive character video reveal!
