When it comes down to guides, there are a lot of guides out there advertising their guides will get the job done; they all claim to get you from level one to the level cap within a couple of days (no more than a week). I can prominently say there is one guide which does what it advertises i.e. it guided me to hit the level cap within 7 days or less. I’m talking about Killer Guides TERA Online Strategy Book now priced at $19.99 USD. Before I found Killer Guides, I had issues with leveling in general (at the moment I’m using an adorable Popori Priest) as I was dying a lot. I knew from the beginning the Priest would be a hard class to master as it has more healing spells compared to attacking spells.
Starting off in TERA, I wasn’t sure what I was doing to be honest. Playing the game I suddenly got lost. At the beginning it was a painful struggle advancing through mobs and what not. Sure, I was able to heal myself and all but I completely forgot that I was on my own. So when I was defeated, I was teleported back to the townsquare with less experience points than I started. Quite frustrated, I headed to Killer Guides, a website known for producing in game guides. I used their guides before and I was impressed. Honestly, I didn’t care what others said about the company; I got what I paid for.
Buying the guide now at the discounted price of $19.99 USD, I opened the immediately downloaded PDF, packed with 80 pages of information about each TERA class.
I immediately headed to the leveling section. The guide provides and in-depth analysis on leveling strategies which can be used for each class. Locating the Priest section, I was advised where to go and hunt monsters for their experience points, given the fact previously, the guide recommended basic skill rotations. Killing mobs with my Priest became much easier. Now, as I have enough skill points, I continued reading the guide where to place these skill points. The guide was very firm on where to place the skill points; it reminded me which skills I currently need for my level. Advancing through the guide, I began to understand what I needed to do to become a very powerful Priest. Playing with my friends was enjoyable. For one, I wasn’t dying and two, I became their most valuable asset in the game. I think for people who don’t enjoy PvP now will enjoy it, especially if your character is a supporting healer, like mine.
As I’m unable to share the details of the guide with you (since the guide is under a single license) I could only review specific parts of the guide which I liked and disliked.
Like: I liked how the guide was laid out in an easy to read format devoid of excessive images to boost the page counts. The guide was laid out by classes defining each class by its skills, abilities, pros and cons, equipment, leveling section and questing information. The guide showed me the author knew what they were talking about, referencing to the name of NPCs or combat strategies used in the game.
Dislike: Regardless of what I said earlier, the guide should at least some images such as skill icons . I know it’s not a big deal but I rather have a guide with some images rather than a guide heavily focused on words.
In overall conclusion, I’m happy with the purchase. Soon, I’ll go buy their lifetime membership package and continue downloading their outstanding guides.
Tera is another good looking subscription MMO game that has finally become free-to-play game in Febuary 2013. Is it because “F2P is a successful model for MMORPG?” or “it is a last breath to live before dying”? Taking Tera into an example case, it might be the second answer. Tera has lost its population gradually so game developer have to cut servers down to 3 servers from more than 10 in September 2012, or only 5 month after its initial release.
Not only Tera Online, another good looking subscription MMORPGs like SWTOR has changed its model to F2P because of the exact reason too. 2 big-name-subsciption games become F2P from the same cause. Question is “What big name game is going to be the next victim which has to bite their teeth and change model to F2P?” Looking at the calendar, the Elder Scrolls Online is the next huge mmo game going to be released, but no one knows which system this game is going to use. If it is planing to go for subscription, it might be the next victim. Who knows?
What exactly does the Warrior class offer? First of all, the Tera Online Warrior is a tank that is highly capable of dealing life threatening damage at the same time. The Warrior is a proud class who deals high level damage from a series of swordplay. Similar to the Slayer, the Warrior’s main weapon is the sword.
Besides abilities to leave a trail of destruction in its path, the Warrior is also have skills such as Evasive Roll which lets the Warrior quickly move away from danger. Thus, besides aggro, the class could still use those evasive type skills to minimize the damage they have to absorb. Some talents that stands out for the class are those such as the ability to counterattack. When playing in large groups, you can easily find the Warrior by checking out the front-lines.
How does the Tera Warrior leveling style differs from the Slayer. We’ve already seen that the Warrior is a tank while the Slayer isn’t. The other obvious difference is the preferred sword. The Slayer uses just one blade. The Warrior on the other hand is quick with their twin swords; one on each hand. With speed and grace the Tera Warrior is highly capable of demobilizing enemy units.
The class goes into battle in light armor which allows them to become more flexible with their swordplay and quick to move out of harms way if their condition is critical.

The below article talks about one of the eighth races in TERA, the Castanics. More detailed contents can be read at A Book of TERA Online
The Tera Online Castanics are an opportunistic race of cunning merchants. Never turning down a job for the right price, they are commonly employed by the other races as mercenaries and bodyguards. This articles provides an introductory Tera Guide to the Castanics. Details about the other races could also be found at TeraLevelingGuide.net.
With an iron grip over international trade, the Tera Online Castanics are famous for their skills as artisans and crafters, creating some of the most unique weaponry and armor ever seen by the mortal races of Tera.
Following their own dark code of honor in defiance of the Devan Empire, the Castanics forged their own destiny, chiseling their name into the monolithic stone of history. Records kept by other races, especially the Barakas, detail the Tera Online Castanics as some of the best tacticians in the world.
The Castanics were forced to adapt to creative tactics in order to defeat foes that outnumbered them. Since their clan is of relatively small population, the Castanics overcompensate for their lack of numbers with deadly military tactics that leave most powerful military legions scattered and irreversibly damaged. With the ability to out-maneuver, out-think , and out-plan most conventional militaries, the Castanics are valued by the Federation for their original thinking, and their skill as cunning negotiators.
Admired by the Humans for their guile and social engineering skills, the Castanics are largely mistrusted by most of the races of the Federation. Nevertheless, the peaceful races that seek to forge a global alliance cannot afford to lose a valuable ally such as the Castanics.
The Castanics have penned some of the most famous military texts in history, setting the foundation for other armies all across the world of Tera. The Baraka find the detailed military primers an amazing way to look into the soul of the Castanics as a people, and have surprisingly reached out on good terms with the nation, despite their fiery tempers and deceptive natures.
As a Castanic, players set foot into the world of Tera as the member of a skilled and fear-inspiring race, holding steadfastly against distant evils alongside the Federation, so that they may vanquish the threats to their empire for all eternity.
