Last week, the first new class since the launch of TERA Classic in South Korea was added with little fanfare. The mobile MMORPG welcomed the Elin Lancer, and of course it has to be exclusive to the Elin race… I am guessing the developers are giving in to the demands of players asking for a class where the weapon is bigger than Elin… This combination with Lancer is unique to TERA Classic, and not found in the PC version of the game. However, the core functions of the Lancer remains the same, leading battles at the forefront with the shield protecting team members. Familiar skills such as Leash and Onslaught can be found.
I spent a short time in TERA Classic to try out the new Elin Lancer, but for the full game impression do visit my previous article. The key point noticed was the changing of skills when the shield extension skill is in effect. These alternate skills are mostly used to charge into battles and perhaps draw aggro from the mobs. They are pretty much useless in a solo situation at the start though. This is just a quick look, hence I did not spend too much time on it. There is currently no word of an overseas launch for TERA Classic, so stay tuned!
