All TERA accounts come with at least two character slots per server, and an account bank with 72 inventory slots. (Additional character slots and inventory tabs are available in the TERA Store.) Select a race, gender, and class, and you’re ready to go!
Our game guide presents an in-depth look at TERA’s many customizable options, but the most important thing for you right now is knowing how to use your quest log. Talk to Axelle to get your first quest, then press [L] to bring up the log. From here you can see your current status, what you have to do next, and decide what quests to display in your quest tracker. The tracker starts off on the right side of your screen, but you can move it to wherever is most convenient for you.
If your quest involves killing a monster or talking to someone, just click on its name to drop a marker on your map. Press [N] or [M] to toggle your map displays, or use the compass in the upper right corner of your screen.
One-use items are just that—selecting one places it in the inventory of your current character. Whether or not you use it is up to you, but it will no longer appear in Item Claim.
Account items are available for all your characters to use, and will remain on the tab for as long as you play TERA.
Or you can cast your net a little wider, by using the LFG interface [Y], or the LFG chat channel (/u). Just let people know what you want to do, and you’ll be grouping in no time.
You can also visit http://guilds.enmasse.com and check out the TERA guild finder. With just a few clicks you can review guilds based on play style, server, size, and level. Once you know who (and what) you’re looking for, jump back into the game to the Guilds on Server list, and send one of your new friends a message.
Bring up your UI, and select Instance Matching to find a list of dungeons available for your level. If you meet the minimum gear requirement, select the dungeon you want to explore, then click the “Find Group” button. You’ll be paired up with other players who want the same thing you do—fun!
Once your group is assembled, you’ll be teleported to the dungeon. The enemies you’ll fight are a lot tougher than you’re used to, but if keep your class’s role in mind, communicate with your group, and don’t wander off on your own, you’ll do fine!
