Story quest gives more experience than the Vanguard requests and actually advance the plot they are easy to sport because there is an orange question mark for quest start and mid-quest waypoints and there is orange exclamatory makeover enemies heads or resources you need to collect to advance the quest ones the story quest has been completed you need to hand it in to the NPC with the orange star floating above the head you can access these quests through the vanguard request menu by pressing the H key or you can open your map by pressing M use right click to zoom out until you see the whole world and look for the orange question mark or star and head their  we will talk about transport and getting around later on .

These quests will quickly move you from one place to another and should be your main focus when leveling up for the first time there are very important in giving you experience that you need to progress at constant rate if you follow them through you don’t need to grind much  in gaining the experience remember you can open  your quest log by pressing L key to check the progress.

3. Dungeons

These are the fastest way to gain experience and collect items but more importantly, they contain one of the most fun combats. Tera is famous for its dungeons for leveling dungeons are much easier on the journey from one to max level you won't even need a specific team build a perfect team could make it easier but it’s not essential ones you reach level 20 you unlock first dungeon the “Bastion Of Lok” the simplest way to play for a dungeon is to press Alt for cursor to appear and click on the magnifying class like shape which is on the top right side and choose instance matching this will bring up the list will all the instances which are the dungeons you will be able to play for under the each instance you can also see rewards you can find there click on the little circle which will be on the left for each one you could q up for and then click find group one your experienced and you feel you will be able to lead group you can click on the little box which will be on the down able to lead party leaders will get into the groups faster but should also be able to explain mechanics of the fight one the dungeon group is completed you will be given an on screen prompt asking if you are ready to go there now access the cursor by pressing the Alt and press enter now one you are inside the dungeon there may be Npc with the quest for you always  accept the quest it will be the bonus XP when you kill the final boss.

Completing the dungeon always counts as wander request so remember to press H Key and accept any vanguard request you happen to complete by completing the dungeon that’s the pretty much the basics’ of gaining experience so now you know how to gain experience. Now let’s talk about what happens when you level up every time you level up you will get cool wing graphic and you will also get little plus symbol on your screen if you click on that plus symbol you will be taken to skills menu you can also access the menu by pressing K Key your skills list will be broken into three tabs active, passive and ride.

4. Crystals

Now lets talk about the crystals press P key to open your players character sheet and you will see everything you have equipped down you will see your stats and if you look to the left of the weapon and the right of your armor you will see slots for your crystals these are physical items which you can add to your weapons and armors and much higher levels jewelry that give you bonus stats you will receive crystals as a reward for leveling up completing quests or drops from enemies you can tell the level of the crystal and what it does by putting your cursor over it some crystals can only be equipped into weapons or armor of a certain level so equipping the best items you can is important in general attack crystals are read and cannot be stacked multiple times meaning you can have one of the each kind and defense crystals are blue and can be stacked the exact crystals you need to depend on your class and there is no need to optimize this until you hit the end game just put the best you have and try not to get killed because every time you die there is a chance that crystal you equipped may get destroyed.

You can prevent this by being Tera club member called VIP in North American version remember you will find crystals from gift packages that game gives you when you level up or completing vanguard requests. Now you are ready to explore the Tera world so now the question comes how can you get around.
