Buff-Food and Co: Everything about consumer goods in TERA

Have you always wondered what all the different potions and food are for? Have you always wanted to know which ones exist and which ones are best for you? Then this guide should help you a lot. Here we will explain which Buff-Foods there are, what they do (=what they are good for) and which you should use for your role.

Note: Some of the bufffoods listed are not yet available on the console version. In order to get the missing buff food, certain events like the Farmer Festival must be introduced into the game. Some of the other buff food can be obtained from the TERA Shop, for example, but can also be purchased from the trading agency. Quest items, items from old patches (no longer in the game) and experience/gold/call buffs are not dealt with. Brooches are not handled here because they are equipment. These are addressed in class guides. Brooches can also be activated and give positive effects like buff food.

What should Buff-Food be?

Let’s take the word apart to understand what this English word combination means. “Food” is the English word for “food”. However, many gamers talk about “buff food” not just about food, but about consumer goods in general. These consumer goods must have at least one special effect so that one can speak of “Buff-Fodd”. Here comes the English word “Buff”. In video games, one speaks of a “buff” when it comes to an effect/ability that strengthens the user. It can be about his status values like crit or defense or abilities, or a special effect like immunity against knocking down.

Buff food is therefore a consumer good which gives its consumer (and possibly its group/raid members) an improvement in its status characteristics, abilities or a special effect. In short, it’s stuff you eat to become stronger.

General Information

Buff food is very important in TERA. Certain buff foods are considered necessary by the TERA community as a whole. They should always be used. Other consumer goods should definitely be kept ready at all times or as long as you can manage them. Other buff foods are considered necessary by certain parts of the TERA community or in certain situations. We will identify in the guide which buff foods apply to which foods. Also, some buff foods have nicknames. We will also write them to you.

Special Features of Certain Buff Foods in TERA

Buff food is considered a combat accessory in TERA. You can find them at the trading agency. Certain Buff-Foods in TERA are overwritten. This is extremely important. You don’t want to waste your resources. The general rule is: stronger effects overwrite the same weaker effects. Example: One effect gives 10 power, another 30 power – the one with 30 power overwrites the other. However, only buff food of the same kind can overwrite each other – only potions with potions, etc. But this is only in general, in itself it is a bit more complicated. In the following we list what overwrites what. Details on the effects of the buff foods mentioned can be found below. The following diagram shows the effects:

Buff-Food –> (overwrite from) Buff-Food

Canephoratrank –> Strong Canephoratrank
Bravery Potion –> Strong Bravery Potion, as well as the Canephora Potions
White buff food (roasted corn) –> Green buff food (e.g. broccoli soup, moon pumpkin muffin) and blue buff food (e.g. lamb bulgogi, salad with struthio breast fillet)
green buff food (e.g. broccoli soup, moon pumpkin muffin) –> blue buff food (e.g. lamb bulgogi, salad with struthio breast fillet)
Noctenium Infusion (all you can activate and deactivate) –> Enhanced Noctenium Infusion [unusual] –> Enhanced Noctenium Infusion [rare] –> Enhanced Noctenium Infusion [legendary]
Inferior Secret Media –> Inferior Secret Media –> Outstanding Secret Media –> Eternal While Secret Media
(Veteran) crystal bond –> Complete (Veteran) crystal bond

Some effects are not overwritten, but end with the death of the user, such as the Elixir of the Stormy Savages.

In the following the Buff-Foods are represented as follows:

The water under the Buff-Foods

It’s holy. It is the sign that you at least have essential understanding of TERA. If you don’t take it, you will be labeled as “Noob” or “Newbie” and in the worst cases thrown out of groups. So it’s like water for TERA players. What are we talking about? The secret agent.

Battle Solution: There are 4 different versions of it. In ascending rarity the effect improves. TERA Elite members always have the eternal secret remedy. As the name suggests, you can use this secret agent as often as you want as long as you are an Elite member.

Outstanding Secret Means: (gold) Gives you 27% more Power for 30 minutes, 20% more Constitution, restores 13% of your total MP every 5 seconds, and reduces your attack skills (not abilities that do no damage) cooldowns by 15%. Tank, DD] Increases critical damage by 1.42 times. Healer] Increases your attack speed by 10. Cost 30 gold.

Average Secret Means: (blue) Same effects as the Outstanding Secret Middle, but weaker. 18% more Power, 14% more Constitution, 9% MP Regeneration every 5 seconds. [Tank, DD] +1.07 Krit damage. [Healer] 7 more attack speed. Cost 4 gold.

Inferior secret agent: (green) Same effects as the Outstanding Secret Middle, but weaker. 9% more Power, 7% more Constitution, 4.5% MP regeneration every 5 seconds. [Tank, DD] +0.54 Crit Damage. [Healer] 5 more attack speed. Cost 1 gold.

Important hints!
You should ALWAYS use a secret agent of golden rarity! ALWAYS throw a new one before starting a battle, during resurrection, and when the secret agent expires. You should ALWAYS have thrown a secret agent of golden rarity into instances at any time. Check directly after resurrection and throw it in again. It’s best to put it on a shortcut. On the console this is otherwise too cumbersome in the fight with the inventory. During leveling the secret means is not absolutely necessary, but it helps extremely with mana problems. The secret agent gives you more damage, faster animations (= less animation locks) and enormous mana regeneration. As I said, a MUST! You can buy it at a dealer and special goods dealer.

For your small and big worries

A meteor hits your enemy, you smash attack behind attack on your enemy loosely. Then – the big finale! You press your skill and… Have no mana. S, you think. What the hell does the healer do, who is a priest and can’t provide mana support? Shit! Do you know such a situation? For such and other problems there are little everyday helpers in TERA, who everyone – I stress, EVERYONE!, no matter what class/role they play, should have, assign and use shortcuts if necessary. Yes, we mean that seriously.

Help with mana problems

Outstanding Manatrank: (gold) Instantly restores 800 MP. If you use the potion as a healer or wizard, you will regenerate an additional 640 (+80%) MP. Can be bought at the dealer for 5 gold. If you definitely always have a supply, eagl what you play (DD, tank and healer). Assign a shortcut to the pot. Has 10 seconds cooldown.

Average Mana Potion: (blue) Restores 420 MP immediately. If you use the potion as a healer or wizard, you will regenerate an additional 336 (+80%) MP. Can be bought at the dealer for 2 gold. Can be used in the middle level area. Has 10 seconds cooldown.

Inferior Mana Potion: (green) Instantly restores 205 MP. If you use the potion as a healer or wizard, you will regenerate an additional 164 (+80%) MP. Can be bought at the dealer for 50 silver. Can be used in the lower level area. Has 10 seconds cooldown.

Not satisfied with normal mana potions?

There are other ways to regenerate mana. Some of them are very useful and should be made or bought on occasion.

Divine Infusion: (green) This is the Ferrari among the mana regeneration tools! If you grab some, she’ll do a shortcut and you’ll be gnarled. This potion restores 5% of your MP every second for 15 seconds until a maximum of 75% of your MP is restored. Unfortunately, it has a 30 second cooldown. However, Divine Infusion is perfect for damage phases or phases where the healer is primarily focused on other things. I can only reiterate how useful this pot is! Available in lucky boxes, surprise boxes, and directly from the TERA Shop. However, there should always be some in the trading agency.

Sarbeer delicacy (also: ice cream): (green) Can be produced during the “Farmer Festival” event. Otherwise you can buy them in the action house after the event. This ice cream is ingenious. It restores 170 MP per second for 15 seconds and has a cooldown of 30 seconds. Optimal for high damage phases or times when your healer is busy with other things than throwing mana. Get it and put it on a shortcut if you have high mana consumption. It’s mostly relatively cheap and very useful. If you throw the ice 3 times in a row, you will also get a success.

Shevranbeerenkeks (also: cookies): (green) Can be made during the Farmer Festival event. Otherwise you can buy them in the action house after the event. Very cheap, because they are never used. The biscuits restore 1% of your Max MP every 5 seconds for 15 minutes and increase your power by 0.01%. 30 seconds cooldown. Hardly ever used – there are better ways to make mana. Better buff food overwrites biscuits.

Grilled Piglet: (white) Worse version of biscuits. Also available during the Farmer Festival. It restores 1% of your Max MP every 5 seconds for 15 minutes. As I said, worse than biscuits.

Heart chocolate: (white) Received during the TERA Valentine event. I don’t know if it’s on the console version as well. If so, then you can dust off a super item. It regenerates 50% of your MP immediately. [May only work outside of combat. Uncertain.]

There are also other buff foods that contain mana regeneration. But we’ll deal with that below, because they primarily give other effects.

Where has my life gone?

Outstanding life potion: (gold) 145,000 LP are softly restored. If you are stunned or depressed, you will regenerate an additional 7,250 (+50%) LP. Cooldown of 10 seconds. A must for every TERA player! Available at the dealer and specialty dealer for 5 gold.

Average Life Potion: (blue) 75,200 LP are restored softly. If you are stunned or dejected, you will regenerate an additional 3,760 (+50%) LP. Cooldown of 10 seconds Levels in the middle level area. Available at the dealer and special goods dealer for 2 gold.

Inferior Life Potion: (green) 25,200 LP are softly restored. If you are stunned or dejected, you will regenerate an additional 1,250 (+50%) LP. 10 second cooldown For leveling in the low level area. Available at the dealer and special goods dealer for 50 silver.

But that’s not enough for LP regeneration!

You want to regenerate even more lives? There are some items that you can have with you – not necessarily. Some of them are shop items or event items and therefore not so easy to get – unless you buy them from the trading agency.

Hero Potion: (green) Can be bought directly from the TERA Shop and is available from luck boxes and other boxes from the TERA Shop. Stupid? Then she simply buys from the trading agency. Few are to be received also by successes (make certain Quests). This horny potion regenerates 5% of your LP every second for 15 seconds. 30 seconds cooldown. You have the possibility to get it? Safe is safe. Use it ONLY in the level 65 area when really necessary.

Rejuvenation Potion (also: LP Recovery Potion): (green) Same as the Hero Potion: Received by TERA Shop directly or from crates or lucky crates. You can buy it from the trading agency. Can be fetched later from the Vergos essences including 30 seconds cooldown. This potion restores 5% of your LP up to 75% every second for 15 seconds. Similar to the Hero Potion – get it for level 65 if you have the option and use it if necessary.

Valkyon Health Potion (similar to Health Potion (green)): (blue) Also a TERA Shop Item, which can also come from crates and from glow crates. Just buy it in the sales agency. Can later be fetched from the Vergos essences among other things. This potion is a great addition to the other potions! Use it only at level 65, if necessary. Instead of regenerating life over time, it immediately gives you 50% of your LP back. 30

Potato salad: (white) Can only be produced during the Farmer Festival. Otherwise, it buys cheaply at the trade agency. Restores 1% of your LP every 5 seconds for 15 minutes. Not used as there is better buff food, which overwrites it.

Pumpkin pie: (green) Eventitem for the Halloween event. Restore 100% of your LP immediately. 30 seconds cooldown. Should speak for itself. [May only work outside of combat. Uncertain.]

Strange pumpkin pie: (green) Event item for the Halloween event. Restore 15% of your LP immediately. 30 seconds cooldown. Um… exists… not necessary… only as info. [Works only outside of combat, if necessary. Uncertain.]

Exotic Beach Potion: (green) Available during the summer beach event. Restore 15% of your LP immediately. 30 seconds cooldown. Similar to Pâté. [May only work outside combat. Uncertain.]

Hot Chocolate: (green) Wintera event item. For 30 seconds, it restores 4% of your LP every second – up to 120% (doesn’t exceed 100% LP, but if you eat damage, it restores more). 1 minute cooldown. Yes, there is. [May only work outside of combat. Uncertain.]

Chocolate egg basket: (green) Eventitem for the Easter event. Restores 15% of your LP. 30 seconds cooldown. [May only work outside of combat. Uncertain.]

My poor crystals!

You die and die and die… and your crystals suffer? Don’t worry. There is a solution.

Complete (veteran) crystal bond (also: Complete): (green) Prevent your crystals from breaking for 12 hours. Can you buy relatively cheap in the trading agency. Always use them. Check if you have one inside. Crystals are more expensive than the crystal bonds.

(Veteran) Crystal Bond: (green) Protect within an hour that if you die within this time, your crystals will break. Can be stacked several times. They are only worthwhile in the short run – in the long run you simply need a complete one.

Complete crystal bond (1h, 3h): (white) Within the specified time window (1 hour or 3 hours), support the breakage of your crystals for a long time. Temporarily better than simple crystal bonds. But real completes are much better.

What other buff foods are important to everyone?

Here are the items that always go with a few hmmm of other useful buff foods. A few of these items you should always throw yourself, others only in HMs and again others… according to your taste. Of course we’ll mark everything for you again.

Cane or Tapfi?

This is where you have to decide. From what do you profit more? Do you run NM, HM or Raid? Do you have a “Score-Run” (i.e. want to set up fast time) etc.? Or is just a little damage missing? You should always throw yourself a normal Tapfi or Cane if possible.

Canephora drink (also: Cane): (blue) Some players are required to throw Tapfi or Cane. Also in NM – definitely in HM. So you urgently need some. But from level 65 on! The potion increases your skill damage by 12% for one hour with a cooldown of 1 hour. Can be obtained from the camouflage clearing. Best to buy it at the trading agency. This potion is important for a few DDs (possibly tanks) that don’t benefit as much from attack speed (e.g. berserk). Usually thrown while Tapfi is still in cooldown. Is overwritten by the strong Cane.

Strong Canephora Potion (also: Strong Cane): (blue) Some players are required to throw strong Tapfi or Cane in HM. So you urgently need some. But from level 65 on! The potion increases your skill damage by 15% for 30 minutes, with a cooldown of 30 minutes. Can be obtained from the camouflage clearing. The best way to buy it is from a trading agency. This potion is important for a few DDs (possibly tanks) that don’t benefit as much from attack speed (e.g. Berserker). Usually thrown while Tapfi is still in cooldown.

Bravery Potion (also: Tapfi): (blue) Some players are required to throw Tapfi or Cane. Also in NM – definitely in HM. So you urgently need some. But from level 65 on! The potion increases your attack speed by 4%, skill damage by 10% and reduces your damage taken by 10% for half an hour with a cooldown of 1 hour. Can be obtained from the camouflage clearing. Best to buy it from the trading agency. Also exchangeable later for the Vergos tokens. This potion is important for most DDs, tanks and healers. Is overwritten by the strong Tapfi and all Cane.

Strong Bravery Potion (also: Strong Tapfi): (blue) Some players are required to throw a strong Tapfi or Cane in heavy instances (HM, Raid). So you urgently need some. But from level 65 on! The potion increases your attack speed by 6%, skill damage by 12% and reduces your damage taken by 10% for 30 minutes with a cooldown of 30 minutes. Can be obtained from the camouflage clearing. Best to buy it from the trading agency. This potion is important for most DDs, tanks and healers. Overwrites the normal Tapfi and is overwritten by the Cane.

More, MORE

This buff food is usually only required in HM or Raid. Apart from that they are nice buffs that you and your team can be happy about. Most of the buff food is from the farm event.

Moon pumpkin muffin (also: muffin): (green) The buff food for poor healers. In the trading agency the muffins are offered very cheaply. Otherwise, the muffins must first be produced in the Farmer Festival. The muffins give you 15% of your LP every 5 seconds for 15 minutes, with a cooldown of 30 seconds, and increase your constitution by 0.01%. Healers can access it. Use it in light instances and definitely in heavy instances (HM, Raid) if you don’t have anything else. Not for DDs and tanks. You may be required to throw yourself buff food. However, this happens relatively rarely. It cannot be used together with struthio salad.

Salad with struthio breast fillets (also: struthio, salad, struthio salad): (blue) The Healer-Buff-Food par excellence. It can be bought more expensive in the trading agency, but is basically relatively cheap. Can only be produced during the Farmer Festival. It will give you 1% of your LP every 5 seconds for 15 minutes, 0.01% more constitution and 3 more attack speed. Cooldown of 30 seconds. Use this as a healer definitely for heavy instances (HM, Raid) and if you have the coal also in NM (not absolutely necessary). Only for healers, not for DDs and tanks. It cannot be used together with the muffins. You may be required to throw yourself buff food. However, this happens relatively rarely.

Broccoli soup: (green) You don’t have that much money? Then the soup is the buff food of your choice. Normally you can only make it during the Farmer Festival, but it’s also available at the trade agency. It gives you 1.05% more LP and 10 more critical hits for 15 minutes. Cooldown of 30 seconds. It’s the buff food of poor DDs and tanks. Throw it definitely in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and also in NM (if you want). It is sometimes required that you throw yourself a buff food. It can’t be used with the lamb and croquettes.

Lammbulgogi (also: lamb): (blue) The means for more boom for DDs and tanks with coal! But you have to decide if you want to throw lamb or croquettes. What’s better for you? Do you profit more from cooldown than from power? It can be produced during the Farmer Festival and can be purchased from the trading agency for an expensive price. Lamb gives you 20 more critical strike, 3 more attack speed and increases your LP by 1.05%. Cooldown of 30 seconds. It cannot be used with broccoli soup and croquettes. It can definitely be thrown in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and, if you have coal, also in NM. It is sometimes required that you throw yourself a buff food.

Half moon croquettes (also croquettes): (blue) Cannot be used with lamb and broccoli soup. So you have to choose between the lamb and the croquettes. What more do you benefit from? Do you benefit more from power than from cooldown? It can only be made during the Farmer Festival and bought from the trading agency. It is the buff food for DDs and tanks that have a lot of money. Basically it is sometimes more expensive or cheaper than lamb. The croquettes give you 3 more attack speed for 15 minutes, 0.01% more power and restore 1% of your MP every 5 seconds. Cooldown is 30 seconds long. Throw it in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and, if you have coal, also in NM. It is sometimes required that you throw yourself a buff food.

Harder, better, faster, stronger

Do you know “Ultra Rapid Fire” by League of Legends? No? Then it’s about time. These items will make some classes fire up their butts.

Potion of combat acceleration (also: TERA Time, TT): (green) This water is very expensive and is only used when you really need it (no Clear without) or the group demands it (because of fast through or “Score-Run”). One can get it from the trading agency for expensive money or the TERA shop (boxes). Get it from the trading agency. What does it do? For a cooldown of 1 hour, you can enjoy 30 minutes of damage in TERA: your cooldowns are all drastically reduced and your MP regeneration is increased so much that you have no mana problems. Can be used by DDs, tanks and healers – but not everyone benefits as much as other professions. Who doesn’t benefit as much? Berserkers, for example – healers must also think about whether they need to use the coal for this.

Flax dark beer (also: beer): (green) Can only be produced during the Farmer Festival or from Bamarama crates (sold by ticket sellers). Get them at the sales agency. This alcoholic drink has a cooldown of 1 minute and increases your attack speed by 10 for 10 seconds. Any DD and tank that benefits from attack speed should get a few dozen from here. They go away like hot cakes and cost a lot. ONLY in burst phases (i.e. boss is angry [red edged life bar], makes your strongest abilities, throws you breasts and own buffs [as long as you have them], and if you have a lancet that buffs too). This is especially beneficial: Warriors, Blade Dancers, and Mages during their own buffs.

Elixir of the Stormy Savages: (know) You’re really good at it, never die and want to do real damage? Then this elixir should be on your shopping list. The elixir increases your power by 7 for 30 minutes until you die. Then the effect is over and you can do the cooldown of 30 minutes. The elixir falls in the camouflage light, can be bought in the TERA shop and in the trading agency. Definitely for “score runs” or if damage is missing and you don’t die. Nothing for healers. Cannot be used together with the Elixir of the Ruthless Wild. But that doesn’t matter.

Rarely used, but useful to what extent?

There are some buff foods that are hardly ever used. To what extent they are useful can be found here.

OP, only used in heavy instances

This Buff-Food is valid for your entire (battle) group (up to 20 people)!!!!!

Traditional Black Field Grilled Meat: (gold) Can be made during the Farmer Festival. Just buy it at the sales agency – but it’s quite expensive. You can throw it at yourself in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if you eat too much damage. Remember, it’s enough if one of your group throws. The meat will give your entire (Battlegroup) 9% more LP Recovery for 15 minutes. This buff food is very useful in many instances – especially in Lachelita’s HM.

Flame Salad of the Freelands: (gold) Can be made during the Farmer Festival. Simply buy it from a commercial agency – but it’s quite expensive. You can throw it at yourself in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances. Remember, it’s enough to throw one of your group. The salad will give your entire (raid) group 5% more LP and MP for 15 minutes. This buff food is very useful in Lachelita’s HM at the end boss.

Dark Wings: (gold) Can be made during the Farmer Festival. Easy to buy at the trading agency – but quite expensive. You can throw it at yourself in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if the boss does too much critical damage to you. Remember, it’s enough if one of your group throws. Dark Wings will give your entire (Battle) party 20 critical hit resistances for 15 minutes. This buff food is the least useful of the Golden Trio.

Friendly Feast / Melsas Triple Feast: (Golden) Gives you the effects of the Golden Trio: Dark Wings, Flame Salad of the Freelands, and Traditional Black Field Grilled Meat. If you have that here, you don’t need the three of them. The Triple Feast is available from TERA Shop boxes and the friendly feast is available through a mentor relationship via Friend Code (once included in console version).

Feast: (gold) Gives you the effects of the Golden Trio: Dark Wings, Wild Flame Salad, and Traditional Black Field Grilled Meat. In addition, every 5 seconds you get 1% of your MP back, 20 critical strikes and 3 attack speeds. If you have that here, you don’t need the single three. Improved version, so to speak.

Situational Means

Only useful in certain situations.

Elixir of the relentless savages: (white) Shares a cooldown with the Elixir of the Stormy Savages. Normally, the Stormy Savages elixir is also preferred over this elixir. It can be obtained in camouflage, in the TERA Shop and bought from the Trading Agency. The elixir increases your constitution (defense) by 15 for 30 minutes – as long as you don’t die. It has a cooldown of 30 minutes. Normally used very rarely by healers and in exceptional cases by tanks. Why? You usually set up your equipment so that you have enough defense. Once you have plundered “good” equipment, you will no longer need so much defense. So the elixir is only for tanks that don’t die but get damage from the block (and die as a result), and for healers that don’t die and don’t get too much damage otherwise (or die without what they would survive with the elixir).

Digorys Moon Pumpkin Bismet: (green) You can make them during the Farmer Festival, get them from Bamarama boxes (at the ticket seller) and from the trading agency. For 10 seconds, the met increases your constitution by 10 – cooldown is 1 minute. This item is very situational – you need to know which mechanics/attacks require more defensive. Otherwise, it won’t do you any good. Now it “only” overwrites Lin’s dark beer, but it is still not used. Why? Each player usually sets up his equipment in such a way that he no longer needs any defense, or as soon as he has “good” plundered equipment, he no longer needs any extra defense. You need more, don’t you? Then it’s probably an attack that kills you anyway, because it’s either a one-hit knockout or the attack does solid LP damage. Or you play healers and don’t survive some attacks. But try it yourself! It’s not expensive.

Means for certain instances

Only useful for certain instances.

Roasted maize (narrow: popcorn): (white) Can only be produced during the Farmer Festival. Otherwise it buys cheaply at the sales agency. Your LP will be increased by 1.05% for 15 minutes. Mega useful for instances that have fixed LP damage like Lachelitas Ruin HM Last Boss! Only used there.

Himmelslotuslikör: (green) You have your nose full of being constantly thrown down, interrupted or made to stagger? This is the solution. In the short term, the liqueur offers protection against e.g. the tumbling of the recoil of Lachelitas in the HM. It is often used by healers. What exactly does it do? It gives you 100% resistance against staggering and knocking down. 1 minute cooldown. Can only be made during the Farmer Festival, but can be purchased from the Trading Agency. [May also be available in Bamarama boxes (from ticket seller)].

Enchanting skylight (also: lantern): (blue) The lifehack par excellence, when it bothers you to be pushed away by the boss. Use the skylight at the right moment and stand close to it and you won’t be pushed away. Your (Battle) party members can also get the effect if they get close enough. 1 second cooldown. Just a lantern flying up (no real food). But because you can use it and get a positive additional effect for yourself (“pseudo buff”), we added it. Will be available in boxes in the TERA Shop sometime… Could take quite a while until it comes to console. Probably then also in the commercial agency for sale. Good for Vergos Stage 2 and 4. Anyone can pack some.

Means for certain classes

Only useful for certain classes.

Speed Potion: (green) You’ve probably wondered what kind of potions you can get when collecting essences? Well, these are the ones. They can also be bought from the trading agency. The potion increases your movement speed by 30 for 90 seconds outside combat (!) outside combat. Unfortunately, it can only be used outside combat. What is it good for then? Mystics should now be a bit squeamish, because they are most of the battle “outside of combat” (i.e. inserted weapon). Priests don’t. All, however, can dust a success by using a certain number of these potions. It’s also something.

Loot, more Loot

These items give you more items when you defeat a boss. For a guaranteed effect, everyone in the group should throw one of these items.

Emblem of success (also: emblem): (gold) Only available in certain Event Chests or TERA Shop Chests. Not available in the agency. The emblem increases the dropping rate of monsters by 100%. However, this is influenced by the dropout rate of the group, i.e. if dropout occurs, then by everyone. Only worthwhile for end bosses from HMs. Otherwise, the emblem brings you 1% LP regeneration + 5% MP regeneration and 20% cooldown reduction every second. 5 second cooldown. [Duration and death duration effect not known by authors].

Signet of the indelible flame (also: Signet): (gold) Only available in certain Event Chests or TERA Shop Chests. Not available at Handelsagentur. The emblem increases the dropping rate of monsters by 100%. However, this is influenced by the dropping rate of the group, i.e. if you throw, then by everyone. Only worthwhile for end bosses from HMs. Otherwise, the Signet will increase your LP by 7%, your Constitution (Defense) by 20%, your movement speed in combat by 10, your attack speed by 15, your skill damage by 20%, and restore 1% of your LP every second. It also prevents crystals from breaking once. [Duration and death duration effect not known by authors].

[DD/ Tank Item Composition] Always get more damage

Here is a list of the items you should always have with you as DD and tank. You don’t always have to use all items. As a DD and also as a tank, there is certain buff food which will increase your damage. You don’t have to throw the buff food. Only in heavy instances – like Hard Modes or the Raid, you’re usually expected to throw yourself something.

To the basic equipment…

As DD and tank you should always have the following items with you:

Outstanding Secret Middle / Eternal Secret Middle (gold): Against mana problems and one of your main damage buffs. Take it. Always.

Outstanding Mana Potion (gold): Anyone can have Mana Problems. Take some with you. Always.

Divine Infusion (green): Not only for classes with a lot of mana consumption.

Sarbeer delicacy (also: ice cream) (green): Can, but doesn’t have to. Especially with mana slings it helps (magician, warrior, lancer).

Outstanding Life Potion (gold): Everybody can need Life Points. Take some with you. Always.

Hero Potion (green): Can be taken as “Insurance”.

Rejuvenation Potion (also: LP Recovery Potion) (green): Can be taken as “Insurance”.

Valkyon health potion (similar to health potion (green)): (blue) Can be taken as “insurance”.

Canephoratrank (also: Cane) (blue): In NM – definitely in HM and Raid from level 65 throw. This potion is important for a few DDs (possibly tanks) that don’t benefit so much from attack speed (e.g. Berserker). Usually thrown while Tapfi is still in cooldown.

Bravery Potion (also: Tapfi) (blue): In NM – definitely in HM and Raid from level 65. This potion is important for most DDs and tanks that benefit from attack speed.

Complete (Veteran) Crystal Binding (also: Complete) (green): Always use it. Check if you have one inside. Crystals are more expensive than the crystal bonds.

Additional useful buff food

For heavy instances (HM, Raid) or according to your own wishes or demands of the team members, the following items should be brought along:

Strong Canephora Potion (also: Strong Cane) (blue): Throw in HM and Raid from level 65. This potion is important for a few DDs (possibly tanks) that don’t benefit so much from attack speed (e.g. Berserker). Usually thrown while Tapfi is still in cooldown.

Strong Bravery Potion (also: Strong Tapfi) (blue): Throw in HM and Raid from level 65. This potion is important for most DDs and tanks that benefit from attack speed.

Broccoli soup: (green) It is the buff food of poor (!!) DDs and tanks. Throw it at you definitely in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and also in NM (if you want). It is sometimes demanded that you throw yourself a buff food.

Lammbulgogi (also: lamb): (blue) One of the Buff-Food for DDs and tanks with money. Throw it definitely in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and, if you have money, also in NM. It is sometimes demanded that you throw yourself a buff-food. Throw lamb if you benefit more from cooldown than from power.

Crescent Croquettes (also called croquettes): (blue) The other of the buff food for DDs and tanks with money. Throw it definitely in heavy instances (HM, Raid) and, if you have coal, also in NM. It is sometimes demanded that you throw yourself a buff-food. Throw lamb if you benefit more from power than cooldown.

Flax dark beer (also: beer): (green) Every DD and tank that benefits from attack speed should get a few dozen here. ONLY in burst phases (i.e. boss is angry [red edged life bar], makes your strongest abilities, throws you breasts and own buffs [as long as you have them], and if you have a lancet that buffs too). This is especially beneficial: Warriors, Blade Dancers, and Mages during their own buffs.

Battle Acceleration Potion (also: TERA Time, TT) (green): This water is very expensive and is only used when you really need it (no Clear without) or when the party demands it (because of fast through or “score run”). Can be used by DDs and tanks – but not everyone benefits as much as other classes. Who doesn’t benefit as much? Berserker e.g.

Elixir of the Stormy Savages (white): Only for “Score-Runs” or if you lack damage. You can’t die, otherwise the effect is gone.

Traditional Blackfield Grilled Meat (gold): You can throw it in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if you eat too much damage. Remember, it’s enough for one of your party to throw. This buff food is very useful in many instances, especially in Lachelita’s HM.

Flame Salad of the Freelands (gold): You can throw it at yourself in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances. Remember, it’s enough to throw one of your group. This buff food is very useful in Lachelita’s HM at the end boss.

Dark Wings (gold): You can throw it in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if the boss does too much critical damage to you. Remember, it’s enough if one of your party throws. This buff food is the least useful of the Golden Trio.

Friendly Feast / Melsas Triple Feast: (Golden) Gives you the effects of the Golden Trio: Dark Wings, Flame Salad of the Freelands, and Traditional Black Field Grilled Meat. If you have that here, you don’t need the three of them.

Feast: (gold) If you have this here, you don’t need the single three. Improved version.

Emblem of Success (also: Emblem): (gold) The emblem increases the dropping rate of monsters by 100%. However, this is influenced by the dropping rate of the group, i.e. if you throw, then by everyone. Only worthwhile for end bosses from HMs.

Seal of the indelible flame (also: seal): (gold) The emblem increases the dropping rate of monsters by 100%. But this is influenced by the dropping rate of the group, i.e. if you throw, then by everyone. Only worthwhile for end bosses from HMs.

Roasted maize (narrow: popcorn) (white): Only for Lachelitas HM end boss.

Sky lotus liqueur (green): As DD and tank this can be of limited use here.

Elixir of the Indomitable Savages (white): The elixir is actually only for tanks that don’t die but get damage from the block (and die as a result). Rarely used. Gone on death.

Enchanting Skylight (also: Lantern) (blue): Could take quite a while until it comes on the console. Probably then also in the commercial agency for sale. Good for Vergos Stage 2 and 4. Anyone can pack some.

[Healer-Item Composition] I’m a healer, what do I take?

Finally it’s your turn. Of course, healers throw themselves other buff food than DDs or tanks. Healers aren’t necessarily expected to throw themselves much. Nevertheless, some buff foods are very useful and even relatively cheap. So here’s the list of items you should always have with you as a healer. You don’t always have to use all items.

To the basic equipment…

Also as a healer: Better safe than sorry. You take with you:

Outstanding Secret Means / Eternal Secret Means (gold): Main source of mana and cooldown reduction. Take it. always.

Outstanding Mana Potion (gold): Even as a healer you will get mana problems. Take some with you. Always.

Divine Infusion (green): Your life saver for mana problems. Treat yourself to it!

Outstanding Life Potion (gold): Why? You rarely need it, but under certain circumstances it will save your life.

Hero Potion (green): Can be taken as “Insurance”.

Rejuvenation Potion (also: LP Recovery Potion) (green): Can be taken along as “Insurance”.

Valkyon Health Potion (similar to Health Potion (green)): (blue) Can be taken as “insurance”.

Complete (veteran) crystal binding (also: Complete) (green): Always uses this in any case. Check if you have one inside. Crystals are more expensive than the crystal bonds.

Additional useful buff food

For heavy instances (HM, Raid) or according to your own wishes or demands of the team members, the following items should be brought along:

Bravery Potion (blue): Need only in heavy instances (HM, Raid). Should be used with caution, as this will give you even more attack speed (i.e. faster animations = shorter dodge and “less animation locks”). So consider carefully whether you want to throw the potion. The damage reduction also helps.

Strong Bravery Potion (also: Strong Tapfi) (blue): You only need it in heavy instances (HM, Raid). Should be taken with caution, as this will give you even more attack speed (i.e. faster animations = shorter dodge and “less animation locks”). So consider carefully whether you want to throw the potion. The damage reduction also helps.

Moon Pumpkin Muffin (also: Muffin) (green): The buff food for poor healers. You don’t have to use it, but it’s helpful.

Salad with Struthiobrustfilets (also: Struthio, Salad) (blue): The healer buff food par excellence. Use this as a healer definitely for heavy instances (HM, Raid) and if you have the coal also in NM (not absolutely necessary).

Battle Acceleration Potion (also: TERA Time, TT) (green): This water is very expensive and is only used when you really need it (no Clear without) or when the group demands it (because of fast through or “Score-Run”). Healers need to think about whether they need to use the coal for it.

Traditional Blackfield Grilled Meat (gold): You can throw it in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if you eat too much damage. Remember, it’s enough for one of your party to throw. This buff food is very useful in many instances, especially in Lachelita’s HM.

Flame Salad of the Freelands (gold): You can throw it at yourself in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances. Remember, it’s enough to throw one of your group. This buff food is very useful in Lachelita’s HM at the end boss.

Dark Wings (gold): You can throw it in heavy instances (HM, Raid) or to help you lay certain instances if the boss does too much critical damage to you. Remember, it’s enough if one of your party throws. This buff food is the least useful of the Golden Trio.

Friendly Feast / Melsas Triple Feast: (Golden) Gives you the effects of the Golden Trio: Dark Wings, Flame Salad of the Freelands, and Traditional Black Field Grilled Meat. If you have that here, you don’t need the three of them.

Feast: (gold) If you have this here, you don’t need the single three. Improved version.

Emblem of Success (also: Emblem): (gold) The emblem increases the dropping rate of monsters by 100%. However, this is influenced by the dropping rate of the group, i.e. if you throw, then by everyone. Only worthwhile for end bosses from HMs.

Roasted maize (narrow: popcorn) (white): Only for Lachelitas HM end boss.

Sky lotus liqueur (green): Divine for healer. As a priest used in Lachelitas HM at the Endboss for the way thrust mechanics.

Speed Potion: (green) Why does it stand here? Well, mystics (not priests) benefit greatly from more movement speed outside of combat to get from a to b quickly (not to waste teleport jumps). Not a must, but quite nice.

Elixir of the Indomitable Savages (white): The elixir is actually only for healers who don’t die and otherwise get too much damage without elixir (or die without elixir, which they would survive with elixir). Rarely used. Gone on death.

Enchanting Skylight (also: Lantern) (blue): Could take quite a while until it comes on the console. Probably then also in the commercial agency for sale. Good for Vergos Stage 2 and 4. Anyone can pack some.
