Tera sets a new standard for MMOs by delivering true action combat for players who want a more exciting, skill-based alternative to conventional online RPGs. For the first time, players can get the best of both worlds: the depth of a traditional MMO combined with the visceral gratification of an action game. In Tera, players actively aim, dodge, and block, as the game's real-time combat system takes into account player skill and position as well as stats. After creating a character, players will join in an alliance to save the world from ravaging armies who threaten to destroy the very gods who hold the world together. Tera also introduces a revolutionary political system in which players wield power in their province based on their in-game political prowess or player-versus-player combat skill.
