in TERA PC – General Discussion

So, I know this has been asked in the past, multiple times lol, but I haven’t been able to find anything recent, and for that I apologize to those probably getting annoyed with the question. But on best guesstimate in TERA,what is the listing of the races by popularity? As well as the classes? I know healers are always in short demand, but that’s pretty much every MMORPG, but aside from that what are they? I have a few ideas of what I want at least one of my characters to be and do, but at the same time I don’t want to do the same thing everybody is doing cause that’s never any fun.

    Elin is by far the most common race (sadly).
    As for class, maybe archer, sort and warrior cuz they’re op dps. Healers are always on demand on leveling dungeons and sometimes in end game, along with tanks.

    Just pick whatever suits you best, do pick based on other people. Who knows you might become one of the best of your class!

    Also if you want to eventually become elitist (xP)

    The best race for each class:

    Lancer: Elin/High Elf M
    Zerker: Elin
    Gunner: Castanic F (for 1%crit passive)
    Warrior: [Edit] Elin
    Slayer: Castanic F
    Archer: Baraka or Popo (one has less knock back when casting thunderbolt, forgot which)
    Priest: Any
    Mystic: Any
    Sorc: Any (preferably castanic for crit passive).

    The other classes are race locked so it wouldn’t matter.

    Warrior is elin btw. Castanic female warriors vortex is a hard animation lock.

    Edit: also for Archer in this guide it shows animation times for each skill per race. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-QiiXdcwm696l3XdLvhv5CORvPfPetLWpV02Q7yxKII/edit?usp=sharing
    As well as here is one for Slayer(might be dated though but has information about race comparisons) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CyJcWV31B_BmVieTRPlFoYvbJX2eWk2EaDilDXmMncg

    It’s been tested that on a pure race-only level Castanics will lose around 5-10% of the DPS that Elins can put out because of their animations iirc.

    Casta female warrior, is an artist, best animation on skills. Best Rain of blows. added: Slayer also sexy.

    Anyway, Popo has the most detailed animation on any class, I considered them best designed race. ( Elin players gonna disagree lol)

    Femani is also amazing on any thing.

    Male Aman is a tough Slayer, looks steady, looks like he can handle the Greatsword pretty well, I love it. Aman Zerk is great also. Except Casta (F/M) and HE male, all zerks look good.

    Lancer, Elin/Popo cute as hell. But if you want full potential, you need huge races, So Aman and Baraka.

    Baraka Priest, if you don’t have a Baraka Priest, you are not a true Tera player. Master Race, Master Class.

    As long as HE male is skinny af I don’t think ppl pick’em much But their leather armor looks good on them, So any leather wearing class you can try them. Sorc also looks good for them. Some bulky costumes also might help lol Ghey boys like’em tho B)

    HE female, they need a better @ss : :p Zerk pretty cool b/c the animation of Flatten is gorgeous on them. Slayer, how they hold the sword and using Knockdown strike also cool. Any magic class, it is good, they have a special elegant which I like when it comes to magical classes. I like warrior tank too, it seems that they can take the hits, the way their animation and standing works, I like it.

    Elins, many people wanna give a lotta logic, but the most reason they pick’em is Loli with short short very short too short skirts. Cute as heck, Elin Sorc amazing, Elin healer cause you hear Nya a lotta times lol, Elin Zerk, cool animation, Elin Slayer, not so appealing and not so different. Elin warrior, very cool, great in pvp. Lancer as said, little loli yelling at bosses cute, but if I wanna pick a tiny race, I pick Popori for sure.

    Human female, so good, I like them a lot, Great Emote, running/walking animation, dance, very compatible with costumes, only class I don’t recommend is Zerk, their zerk is doll compare to other classes.

    lots of stuff remained, they were my feelings. I don’t play HE male, Human male and Casta male at all. I have lots of friends picking HE male, so I could talk about them a bit lol

    At the end, Popori is master race. If they could wear short short very short too short skirts too, we would have seen a lotta Popo around :3

    I have tried almost all the races being mystic, and all of them cancel the motes while running, except elins, some animations seem slower also.

    10% dmg isn’t really a minimum difference. Thats greater than the difference between vm sets.

Are Baraka's the preferred race for any class?

My Priest is almost lvl 65 now, so I figured I'd start my lancer up. I chose Baraka because I think they look amazing in plate armor, but it felt clunky as hell so I looked into which races are best for Lancer and it seems to be Elin or High Elf Males with Baraka as the worst choice which is sad, I like my tanks to be big and bulky. Nowhere I've looked though suggests Baraka for any class. Is there any class they excel at more than or on par with other races?

Races differ in hit boxes both received and outgoing, minor passives (that are usually ignored). Take Baraka since you like their look. Most take choose their races by look to.

I read somewhere that Barakas have ~1m less range on skills and slower shield bash and shield block animations. I made a male High Elf to test it out hoping I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, but it definitely did feel smoother with blocking, they just look like pansies >.>

What exactly does min-maxing mean?

level 5

pieshels

Saulcerite | Zenobia4 points · 3 years ago

To add to urbandictionary, it basically means that you are considering if EVERY SINGLE STAT is better improving considering the alternatives.
For example, there was a thread not long ago on whether to choose crit rate or power in your gear and min-maxing would mean that you calculate the exact value when one stat is better than other.
This usually applies to so called elitists, who spend more time doing min-maxing calculations and gear tweaking than actually playing.

In short: if you just want to enjoy the game, then pick whichever race you want to be. If you want to spend hours of calculating the very best gear/stat/etc. setup, that will take you shittons of money, time and patience to get, then choose accordingly to those tables.

Not sure why this post is so disparaging toward min-maxing.

I can guarantee that when players go to look up a class or gear guide for their character that guide is written by a min-maxer so they have their place in the community.

Your reply really hold a negative tone about the 'so called elitists' and I don't understand that as a min-maxer myself. Some people enjoy optimizing their character since this is an MMO after all.

And it's not always inconsequential either so 'just enjoy the game and pick what you want!' isn't always the advice they need. What if he really wants to do a lot of pvp? I think you'll find that being an elin lancer and a baraka lancer is night and day in both hitbox, animation, and most importantly how much attention you draw from the enemy and how easy it is for them to select you.

Saulcerite | Zenobia2 points · 3 years ago

Ah, my apologies. Didn't quite understand if he is going for min-maxing or just asking if he will do well with a race that he likes aesthetically.
As with the "negative tone", I myself have been an elitist since I can remember playing games that involve stat tweaking. I am just saying that min-maxing takes A LOT of effort. Some people just might not fancy that kind of dedication. What I suggested is – if he wants to go for the best setup there is, he should not look at how characters look, but how they (read: their hitbox, for example) affects game mechanics.
I based this opinion from OP's

[..] I like my tanks to be big and bulky.

Again, sorry if I caused any confusion.

Here's the Urban Dictionary definition of min/max :


(verb)

Usually used in the context of roleplaying games, to min/max refers to the act of designing a character in such a way that one minimizes its weaknesses and maximizes its strengths.


Now that I know more about how the game works, I'm going to min/max my next character so that it's more effective.

Well the first hit of the combo attack is almost instantaneous in the baraka race for lancer, the fastest of all the races. But yeah the overall reach is poor.

There's not really any racial advantages except for the active. However, Baraka Priests have amazing animations, they just look so badass.

I have a pink baraka mystic and it is my favourite char, he is so awsome, when you see him walking into the dungeon like "what's up mates? time to heal some peeps" lights the mod of the party instantly.
Regarding animation + racial skills, I guess the racial of the baraka is a really good but since it is such a long cd, well, let's say you .better don't count on it.
However, Barakas rule mate, baraka all the way ~~~

If you're looking to min-max for PvP then don't roll a Baraka anything. If you're just going to PvE or you're not much of a min-maxer then race hardly matters.

Is there a min/max table available? Yes, I intend to pvp and will weight with my personal preference.

There is no table available, but if you provide the class most experienced players will be able to help you.

callmyname1 point · 3 years ago

even a lot of "most experienced" players are wrong about that. I mean they started out, compared and went elin. time went by, the game changed and now its not that clear anymore.

For pvp though, baraka means big hitbox and i really cannot think of a benefit that baraka offer, all i know is that aman got really fast autoattack-cancel on zerk and i found it by accident…so there is a lot to be discovered by people using recordings over feelings.

level 5

Garandou

💉Bernkastel1 point · 3 years ago · edited 3 years ago

That's because of patches. Elins have longer reach on warriors and lancers, which was a fact and still is. Later down the track experienced players found out shield barrage speed is more important and rolled elf.

Some got patched and some will soon. E.g. elin sorcs used to be faster. Archer/Zerk normalized soonTM. etc.
