April 11

Honorbound is Here!

With the Honorbound update, you’ll see some new faces around the world of TERA. That’s because we’re proud to welcome the valkyrie, our newest character class, to the game we all love.

The valkyrie is a hard-hitting, fast-paced melee fighter perfectly matched to TERA’s action combat style. And as part of her introduction, we’ve got some cool new events through the end of April planned to help us celebrate. Check out the launch trailer below:

For starters, we’re sending you a free character slot to get things going. After maintenance on April 11 until April 30, log in to the server you want to make a valkyrie on and check your item claim. There will be a character slot item there for you to use. Don’t worry if you’re maxed out; with this update we’re raising the maximum number of characters per server to 17.

If you advance your first valkyrie to level 2 by April 30, you’ll receive a Valkyrie Rewards Box with some very useful items:

  • a 15-day dragon pet (Argette) with the ability to auto-loot
  • an everful nostrum to help you in combat
  • a level 15 valkyrie reward box
That reward box is full of awesomeness, because when you open it at level 15, you get even more useful items, and a level 20 valkyrie reward box that works exactly the same way! Each box contains another valkyrie-specific or themed item, more cool consumables, mounts, and more, until you get to the grand jackpot at level 65:
  • +12 Meathanger box (Masterwork Slaughter weapon)
  • Valkyrie Plunder Glyph box × 3
  • Blessed Enigmatic Scroll
  • Intricate Identification scroll × 92
  • Undercede token × 255
  • Chooser of the Slain armor
  • “Chooser of the Slain”—a valkyrie-specific title exclusive to this event

And for the hardest of hard-core levelers, we’ve got some titles only available for players who reach specific levels with their valkyries in the first 24 hours after the update.
  • Battle Maiden (level 30)
  • Grim Amazon (level 58)
  • Dark Raven (level 60)
  • Fate Weaver (level 65)
So clear your calendar for Tuesday, April 11 and the rest of the month. You’re going to need it. But until then, check out our valkyrie class page for more information on this great new class.

“I have no problem crowning TERA's combat system as the best I've ever come across in an MMO.”

“…combat in TERA is fun, really fun”

About This Game

TERA is at the forefront of a new breed of MMO. With True Action Combat - aim, dodge, and time your attacks for intense and rewarding tactical combat. Add the deep social experience of a MMO to best-in-class action combat mechanics for a unique blend of both genres. Play now for free!

Experience an action MMO that goes beyond "point and click!" In TERA, it's your skill, position, timing, and aim that determine the outcome of combat—not how quickly you cycle through targets with the Tab key. If you prefer to lie down on your couch while playing games (we do!), you'll be happy to hear that TERA also offers controller support.

Team up with friends to take down Big Ass Monsters or put your combat skills to the test against other players in one of the many PvP battlegrounds TERA offers.

Customize your choice of seven character races and nine classes with unique battle styles. Fight thousands of monsters throughout a variety of landscapes, and embark on thousands of quests in a game world rich in history and lore.

In a truly free-to-play experience. TERA imposes no artificial cap on classes, zones, or what you can do, or how good you can be - all of the content in the game can be experienced without paying a single penny. To support the continued development of TERA, we offer account services and cosmetic items - costumes, accessories, weapon skins, mounts, and more. We heard players on Steam really like hats...

Whether you fight as part of a guild or join an alliance, being part of TERA's vibrant community means that there is always someone to share your journey with.
