KTERA New Class Teaser Released

KTERA has just released some much awaited information on the new Elin-exclusive class. You can check out their official teaser page here.

Please keep in mind that any names mentioned in this article is directly translated and the class name as well as skill names will be different when it is officially localized by EME. Use it only as a reference. Thanks!

TERA's Newest Class Arrives: Reaper

From the burning ruins of Pora Elinu a lone shadow clad in a charming Gothic dress emerges wielding a sickle wrapped in darkness. Cutting down with blades like the cresent moon enveloped in darkness so deep to swallow the world she brings strikes down to end the war.

Class name is not official. Sounded better than the literal "Flying Swords" and most of their images were named "reaper" therefore the name.

Why has this Elin descended upon us?

The long war between the Argons and the continent of Arborea took a devastating toll upon the natural world leaving a deep scar. Sadness overwhelming her, the queen of Elins formed a resistence against the Argons. Pora Elinu became the supply base for the Valkyon Federation.

Just when they had finally delivered the last supply crate, Pora Elinu was up in flames with the screams of its people. The culprits were the orcans living off the edge of Poporia — We come and we will turn Pora Elinu into a hellish world of madness in an instant.

Queen Rida, while watching the burning spirits of Pora Elinu, was filled with sadness and rage but could do nothing but to evacuate what remained of her people. Days of heartbreak go by when one day a mysterious Elin approaches the queen. This mysterious Elin and her band of mercenaries declared that she would help take back Pora Elinu and said...

We are the double-edge sword that cuts through the darkness like moonlight in the night sky.

Character Creation Conditions

To create the new class you will need another character on your account that is level 40 or above. Once the new class is created she will start at level 50.

Class Features

The Reaper class envelopes their sharp sickles in an aura of darkness — a mid-range melee class. They dance around the battlefield with their sickle and chains flying through the air to cover both close and mid-range leaving their enemies in confusion.

They can use their dark magic to bring enemies close or use their chains to swap their position with their enemy. A tricky but fresh gameplay that is new to TERA.
