En Masse Entertainment has released their final Race and Class series feature for TERA, detailing the high elves race and the berserker and priest classes. The high elves are accomplished mystics and slayers and were the last race to join the Valkyon Federation. Some even believe that the political elves might be running the show before long.
TERA's berserker and priest class are also no slackers. Priests aren't your traditional hang back and heal types, but rather the on the move and working to heal while deal damage and lock down the enemy types. Allowing the second class this week - the berserker, to drill through the enemy defenses and lay down some pain. Read the full reveal below and be sure to check out our interview with TERA's Lead Writer Dave Noonan to learn more about the high elves.
En Masse Entertainment Concludes TERA ÂRace and ClassÂ Series with high elves, berserker and priest;
Confirms GDC 2011 Exhibitor Attendance and New Hands-on Demo
This month En Masse Entertainment returns with more news from the world of TERA, as they conclude the ongoing Race and Class series spotlighting the last of the gameÂs seven mythical races and eight unique classes. Read on for more information and assets, and En MasseÂs official confirmation of TERAÂs presence at GDC 2011.
TERA's high elves are politically astute and have a knack for long-term planning.
Featured Race: high elves
When you play a high elf in TERA, you become part of the worldÂs most ambitious, ruthless societyÂbut itÂs a society that prizes intelligence and drive. TERAÂs elves are finding their way in a world where racial diversity is a matter of survival, but elven pride is as tenacious as the elves themselves.
Elves are equally accomplished in the sorcererÂs tower, the mysticÂs temples, and the slayerÂs dueling circles. Though they keep tight rein on expressing their emotions (lest others take advantage of that weakness), they have a pragmatic wisdom thatÂs an asset in troubled times.
The high elves may have been the last nation to join the Valkyon Federation, but with their political acumen and knack for long-term planning, donÂt be surprised if theyÂre running the show in a few years.
Featured Classes: berserker and priest
You canÂt solve every problem with a huge battle-axe, but the problems you canÂt ÂsolveÂ end up fleeing in terror anyway. ThatÂs the worldview of TERAÂs berserker class, a whirling dervish of destruction on the battlefield.
And while berserkers fly into rages beyond rational thought, you still think tactically as a player. YouÂll be moving around the battlefield, evading enemy attacks and finding just the perfect spot for that Cyclone attack.
Movement on the battlefield is also key for TERAÂs priest class. YouÂre no healbotÂyouÂre dealing damage one moment, locking down your enemies the next, then dropping a Circle of Rejuvenation to keep all your friends alive to fight another day.
Best of all, youÂre pivotal on the battlefieldÂfriends and enemies alike are orbiting around you. Healing takes skillÂitÂs more than just pressing the ÂhealÂ buttonÂTERA rewards that skill with a combat experience that puts you at the center, not on the sidelines.
Additionally, En Masse Entertainment is pleased today to announce that TERA will be presented at the Game DeveloperÂs Conference 2011 this month in San Francisco. One of the yearÂs most anticipated PC titles, the team will be showcasing TERA with a new hands-on demo featuring a never before seen area along with new information and feature unveils.Â Select GDC attendees will have the opportunity to experience the skill-based action combat that promises to make TERA one of the most unique and groundbreaking MMOs released this year. Key members of the En Masse Entertainment team will be available for interviews and demos on site at GDC, March 2-4; please feel free to get in touch to request an appointment.
