TERA Online

Blending third-person action RPG combat with the persistence of online world, journey across the backs of two gargantuan Titans as you seek to end the coming invasions from the underworld. TERA features skill-based party roles where tanks will have to remember to raise shields or roll away while damage dealers need to focus their aim.
