This class lives up to its name, as it is made to get right into the thick of the action and win by being the crazier of the foes. Built to withstand punishment and dish out, even more, Berserkers are a fun class to play solo but also can be hugely advantageous as part of a group. Effective gold farming with the Berserker class means that you will be charging headfirst into battle and trying to destroy your enemies before your rage dies.
While Berserkers are known for their offensive capabilities, it is important to be able to withstand the shock of such aggressive tactics. It is essential to use a Berserker's heavy armor and upgrade it so that you can withstand the counter blows you are certain to suffer while playing this class. This, combined with the Ax Block skill, will enable you to make your Berserker a tough cookie from the get-go.
Berserkers wield axes and are therefore as beholden to their TERA items as any other soldier. Finding the right kind of ax to use can be a boon for dealing with tough mobs and making gold farming go by a little quicker. Skills like the Vampiric Blow, achieved at level 18, will scare enemies away for a short while, allowing you to plan your attacks or your retreat with some precision. The Flatten blow will knock enemies to the ground and allow you the opening to deal them a final blow.
The best gold grinding technique for Berserkers is heading to the dungeons. The swarms and mobs there will provide you with a steady stream of gold as you advance towards the Bosses waiting along the way. Dealing with each boss will increase your rank and eventually start to add up to some very nice equipment. Being a part of a group is encouraged as a Berserker because it will allow you to unleash your massive offensive potential without having to worry about being the focus of your opponent's assault at the same time. Use your special assaults and combos to your advantage as a Berserker. Keep in mind that you can take an enemy out quicker than most in TERA because of these awesomely powerful moves. A favorite skill for Berserkers is Bloodlust, in which you will be endowed with a massive influx of strength and resistance to damage. Using these skills while attacking with combos will lead you to be a very effective gold grinder.
Berserkers' weapons are unique in their size, which allows them to cause damage to several enemies at once if they are unfortunate enough to find themselves in the path of the polearm. Equip a cunning crystal to offset the constant loss of MP as the Berserker class is the only one that suffers from this. Naturally, Berserkers are hard to bring down and have a large number of hit points to absorb damage. They are not a true tank class, but a tank class enraged. Keep this in mind as you will probably not be able to survive acting like a true tank and simply attempting to take on every mob single-handed.
