Tera Online Tips and Hints

User Interface

Toggle between UI and Combat mode by using the ALT key or the ESC key.



The Compass in the upper right corner marks the location of many things, like nearby quest-givers


Quest Difficulty

The quest name's color and level number indicate its difficulty.


Chain Skill

Some skills chain to others. When they appear on your UI, press the Space Bar to activate them.


Location Links

Clicking on a blue name in the Quest Log highlights that monster or NPC on your map


Inventory Space

For a price, an inventory manager can expand your inventory.


Guild Creation

You can create a guild through the guild managers in the major cities.


During Fights

If a monster's eyes turn red, it is about to unleash a powerful attack.



Enhancement Crystals can increase your abilities.



Crafting workshops in major cities teach you to craft equipment from gathered materials. First, buy crafting recipes and necessary reagents from merchants at the workshop. Interact with work benches in the workshop or campfires to bring up the crafting window.



Most equipment can be broken down (extracted)into useful crafting materials. Extraction recipes can be purchased at any general goods shop. Your extraction skill must be as high as the equipment tier you're trying to extract.



Brokers in major cities or villages help you sell or buy items from the other players. When buying, you can choose to bargain with the seller or buy the item outright. Payments are settled and purchased items collected through the sold and bought tabs.



Form parties quickly by using the LFG function on the social menu. Or join a party in progress. Select party members from the LFG applicants in the Social Menu.

Party Monsters

Very tough monsters with skull icons in front of their names usually require a party to kill.



You can purchase glyphs from your class glyphmasters. Using the Glyphs tab of your skills menu, you can activate as many glyphs as your points allow. You can reset your glyph points by paying a fee to the glyphmasters.



Medals are awarded for repeating quests and guild quests. Exchange medals for equipment at the medal shops in major cities.



Attuned equipment can be enchanted through the Attributes - Enchant menu.


Warrior's Edge

Some warrior skills increase their edge against opponents. The edge count is not displayed if an edge skill is not used. When a warrior has an edge, a gauge is displayed below the enemy's HP. The edge is reset if the warrior doesn't continue to apply it. When the edge gauge changes color and an icon displays above the enemy, the edge can be exploited. An exploited edge does more damage. The greater the edge, the greated the damage.


Party Gathering

Party members can multiply gains by gathering at the same time from one resource. The highest-skilled character determines the group's success in gathering.


Reputation/Daily Quests

Earn reputation at level 58 through quests from various factions. Profile > Reputation shows your progress. Faction NPCs unlock daily quests that award reputation and credits. Daily quests can't be repeated that day.


Getting Around

Teleport masters in towns can teleport you back to outlying areas you have visited.



Nexuses appear at set intervals in Khanovar Front, Argonea and Granarkus. When a nexus appears, the world map and mini-map display its locations. A nexus causes all existing monsters to vanish and eerie ones to emerge. All the new monsters, no matter how difficult, must be killed to close the Nexus. The agnitors, at Zulfikar Fortress, offer daily nexus quests which will earn you Agnitor reputation and credits.
