Before I spend $50 or more on Tera, I'd like to know what happens to my characters if (when) I decide to quit. Can I come back at a later time and pick up where I left off or do the characters just get deleted?

If you buy the game, play, then cancel your subscription, the characters are retained indefinitely. If you decide to play TERA again after cancelling an account, you'll be able to pick up where you left off.

In addition to this, should they ever decide to wipe characters it will be only on accounts inactive over a certain amount of time and it will be announced a few weeks ahead of time with emails so you know. – CuddleBunny Jul 7 '12 at 23:03
