Characters use equipment like armor and weapons to boost their stats and abilities. They also have access to an inventory to store items. Players receive quests and tasks.

A notable thing about Taern is that it doesn't offer too much info right from the start. There is a quick combat tutorial and that's it. Players are left to discover Taern by themselves. Questing is unusually non linear for a browser mmo. The graphics are not the best but they manage to build a dark and gloomy atmosphere. The story is catchy and will make players complete one more quest to see what happens next. The premium Taern currency is platinum. This can be gained by referring new players and won from tournaments. Several items and character customization can be bought with platinum. Players can challenge each other and duel in arenas. Players can interact thanks to the in game chat system. The Taern forums are a great place to ask for help or find party members.
