A new tank class is coming to Bluehole Studio’s action-combat MMO TERA. The new class, named the Brawler, is one of several new additions arriving in the game’s newest update “Knockout” this December.
Tera’s Executive Producer spoke with Gamesbeat about the free-to-play MMO’s new Brawler class, explaining how it differs from other MMO tanks saying that, “Traditional MMO tanks tend to grab aggro with taunts and keep mobs focused on them using skills that hold attention but don’t usually deal much damage.” He added, “Tanks also tend to stand in one place for long periods of time, soaking up damage while cycling through a series of skills to maintain aggro. It’s a hard job, but it’s not really all that much fun.”
In addition the update will include two new dungeons — the pirate-themed Kalivan’s Dreadnaught, and the Forsaken Island, and new end-game armor.
More information about TERA is available on the official site.
