TERA : Who wins the Race?
In his latest article, MMORPG's Industry Relations Manager Garrett Fuller takes a look at two of the more unusual races to be included in TERA: The Aman and the Baraka. These two defy the typical stereotyped human/dwarf/elf archetypes in most MMOs today. See what Garrett thinks of these two genre-bending races in his latest column.
Many MMOs are starting to choose arch type races to fit different player profiles. In looking at TERA this week I wanted to take a look at two races in particular, mostly because they differ from the typical fantasy mould of Elf, Dwarf, Human, and Orc. When games begin to choose the races players like, they design them based off of different play styles. This is both an Eastern and Western stereotype of fantasy races. Tank classes for example are played by races which look like tanks, or pro-wrestlers. TERA offers two races that differ from the norm, the Aman and the Baraka.
