Tera, the Action-MMORPG, will be receiving a brand new class called the Valkyrie through the ‘Honorbound’ update.
Valkyries are an ancient Castanic martial order who have returned from exile to help fight the Archdevan army. They originate in a culture that celebrates freedom and express that through a fluid combat style. Close-combat specialists with a dual-focus on crowd control and burst damage, a Valkyrie’s weapons, armor, and skill sets are designed to set up opponents for massive attacks. These attacks generate Runemarks, a new combat mechanic exclusive to the Valkyrie class, for them to exploit and explode. Combining fast movement with high damage, Valkyries will be a dominant factor in any battle.
- 100% Pure Action: Valkyries aren’t concerned with subtlety on the battlefield. Their philosophy is “kill them all, and then find someone else to kill.”
- Runeglaive: Weapons are meant to be used, not admired, and how the valkyrie users her runeglaive reflects that. If she’s not branding you with a runemark, she’s exploding one in your face, knocking you up in the air, or using it to draw you in for the kill.
- Runemarks: The seven runes carved into a valkyrie’s weapon aren’t just for decoration, they’re a recipe for destruction. Every time she scores a crit, she brands one of them onto her opponent. After that it’s no longer a question of if she’ll kill her foe, but when!
- All Castanic, All the time: A valkyrie’s fighting style is heavily influenced by castanic culture. They revere freedom, so light armor, spinning moves, and fast attacks dominate their arsenal. But at the same time, their legacy is an ancient one, and valkyries have been guiding Clan Castanic from the shadows since long before the Valkyon Federation was ever imagined.
The ‘Honorbound’ update that features the Valkyrie class releases on April 11th, 2017.
