A Weapon Costume, otherwise known as a Weapon Skin, is an item that changes your weapons appearance.

A weapon skin is usually purchased from the TERA Store, but can be acquired from other players via trading and using the Trade Broker. Some weapon skins can also be purchased with Fashion Coupons.

Some skins are only available grinding in-game or from events.

Weapon Skin Sets[]

Weapon skins are released in themed sets. A set contains one weapon for each class available at the time the set was released. Most sets have "normal" and "rare" version. You might be able to purchase a standard weapon and a weapon with special visual effects that can only be acquired via Loot Boxes. On older sets rare version is usually available directly.

Different publishers En Masse (NA, console) and Gameforge (EU, RU, rest of the world) have totally different names for most of the costumes since about 2015.

Note: Some sets were created before the release of newer classes, and thus will not have a weapon for them.
