“Faith in others in nothing without faith in one’s self.”
High elves are eager to prove themselves trustworthy allies of the federation. No one questions their skills, but some question their hearts. The elves strive to overcome their own xenophobia, acquired in the aftermath of an all-too-recent war.
High Elf Male Classes
Role: Evasion Tank or Sustained DPS, Melee, Leather Armor
Quick attacks and high mobility make warriors essential to group play, but also survivable while soloing. Tanking with this class is very possible but also extremely difficult. If you choose a warrior to be a tank, be prepared for a challenge.
Role: Absorption Tank, Melee, Metal Armor
Lancers are heavily armored fighters focused on anchoring a battle. They generate maximum threat with movement and attack power for the best durability in the game.
Role: Burst DPS, Melee, Leather Armor
A lightly armored, agile fighter with a devastating greatsword. High damage attacks combine with evasive maneuvers for a dynamic combat style.
Role: Burst DPS, Melee, Metal Armor
Berserkers use charge-up attacks to deal massive damage. Berserkers can also block incoming frontal attacks — though they lose MP quickly when not attacking.
Burst DPS, Ranged, Cloth Armor
The sorcerer is a ranged damage class focused on annihilating the enemy with high-damage “nuke” attacks. The mobile artillery of TERA.
Role: Sustained DPS, Ranged, Leather Armor
Archers are a highly mobile, ranged DPS class. By channeling energy into their bows, archers are capable of a wide range of attacks, dealing massive burst or rapid damage to their foes.
Role: Primary Healer, Ranged, Cloth Armor
The priest is a robed magic user whose primary role is to restore health and vitality. However, a priest is not to be taken lightly — the same power that revives allies can be used to smite foes.
Role: Support Healer, Ranged, Cloth Armor
Mystics are a strong support class with skills to protect and enhance their party through buffs and auras. Mystics also summon mighty thralls to assist, heal, and aid them in battle.

And finally, a video showing the High Elves in action.
