TERA Warriors and Lancers Get New Skills
In a new teaser video from EnMasse a few new abilities for Warriors and Lancers in TERA have been shown off. Two Lancer and Three Warrior abilities will debut with the next major patch called The Argon Queen. The two Lancer abilities are called Backstep and Wallop. Backstep does exactly what it says on the tin while Wallop hits the ground and knocks your enemy down. The three Warrior abilities are Cross Parry, Smoke Flanker, and Reaping Slash. Cross Parry is a block, Smoke Flanker teleports you behind your enemy and hits them while Reaping Slash is an amazing looking spin attack which knocks down your enemy.
