Class Change (sometimes Apex 2.0) is new character development in TERA. It replaces some unused or less used skills with more powerful skills.

Class Change is added to PC version of TERA and released for Slayer and Archer in February patch v114. There is short introductory quest under story [Class Change] New Power (Slayer's Hidden Skill, Archer's Hidden Skill). Players of those classes are invited to Velika to meet Velie, who transports to you to goddess Velik's Sanctuary.

Class Change is accessed in skills menu (key K) under it's own tab. It has five tiers. Two initial classes unlock first two tiers for free, which convert some skills to new versions. You can always revert back to old skills, since new skills are just toggles.

New levels and options unlock with Innate Power manuals. Buy manual from Development Merchant, and fill it with some materials you have to grind for. (Books cost 100Gold coin, 5,350Gold coin, 10,700Gold coin, 53,500Gold coin, 107,000Gold coin.) You need two books to unlock both higher tier options :(

BTW, any character should buy and use the manuals. For classes which did not yet get Class Change, it "increases damage" (details unclear). Undocumented estimate from a discord posting is that 1st level book (and skill) increases damage by 20% (for 100Gold coin) and following books by +2.5%. It's better to use the enchanting mats you gather first to get the book, and enchant gear only after that.
