Overloaded with dawnhide? Have more Arunic panaceas than you could ever use? Desperate to pick up some superior-quality armor? Rather than selling them to the nearest vendor for mere coppers on the gold or wasting time praying someone in the trade channel is selling what you need, let your fingers do the walking through the Brokerage by speaking to your local trade broker!
Trade brokers are located in all cities, and are accessible in towns by decree of the reigning vanarch, making the Brokerage a convenient way to fill your packs and fatten your purse. You don’t have to be a master accountant or filthy rich to benefit from using the Brokerage, but if you have questions, we’ve written a handy little guide to help you get the most out of your investments. Check it out!
We've just published our fourth TERA e-book! These short-story e-books are a great way for readers to experience TERA's world in a whole new way with new characters and new stories.
Our newest TERA e-book is Death at Forgeheart
, by USA Today bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch. It tells the story of two detectives—an aman and a baraka—who must trust one another long enough to solve a murder that could doom the federation.
Here's a small sample of what awaits you in Death at Forgeheart.
In a world as vast as TERA, secrets, surprises, and stories lurk where you least expect them. No matter how meteoric your rise to power might be, there will always be that something you miss. Fear not—we've got you covered.
The latest addition to our game guide delves into the world itself, starting with the continents and drilling down into the provinces. These guides will provide context and lore for each region, prime you on quests to tackle as you travel, and show you which BAMs to watch out for.
Potential vanarchs will find this information useful for choosing which province they want to rule!
Greetings, fellow soldiers! Tamur, Kaiator's force commander, here. We're about to elect new vanarchs to oversee each province in the federation, and I'm not seeing enough excitement. We need heroes who'll inspire us. Strong, wise leadership is the key to victory over our enemies!
The recruiting posters for the war on Kaiator's walls inspire me, so let's have a contest. Make posters for your favorite vanarch candidates and write something that convinces me they're worthy to lead. The Valkyon Federation will choose the most powerful posters and put them on our front page for all to see.
Patch 17.29.01.06 is now available! You can update your game by restarting the launcher. This update addresses a number of typographical errors related to quest text and NPC names. Note that rogue popori pranksters have mislabeled some destinations on teleportals. The teleportals will deliver you to the right location despite their efforts.

Sorry you named your adorable elin “Bertha?” Embarrassed to be the seventh lavender-haired elf at the campfire? Baraka-curious? Change vouchers and novelty items are now available in the En Masse online store on the Premium Services page. So, go ahead and embrace the possibility of change for your player character.
Fancy yourself creative? Are you graphically inclined? How do you feel about getting your guild emblem stylized—and even enlarged—by the Creative Services team at En Masse? If you answered "Yes!" to the first two questions, and "Want!" to the third, we have just the contest for you!
En Masse Entertainment is holding a TERA guild emblem creation contest to promote guilds for the upcoming political system, so it's time to put your artist caps on and get to work.
After level 50, a new kind of prestige opens up for TERA players: the honor of becoming a vanarch and running a province on behalf of the Valkyon Federation. But, even though you have to be level 50 to run for the vanarchy, the TERA political system impacts every player on a server.
To learn about how to get involved in the Vanarch Elections and what you'll get out of this exciting game feature, check out our guide on the Political System!
Patch 17.29.01 will be applied during tomorrow morning's weekly maintenance hours from 3:00 AM to 5:00 AM Pacific. As we've adjusted how guild emblems are stored, all previous emblems have been wiped. This shouldn't occur again in the future. Guild leaders will need to re-upload their emblem for their guilds.

Glyphs modify your skills to optimize them for the role you intend to fill. In a nutshell, glyphs are like crystals for your skills. Just like crystals help emphasize certain strengths or boost certain abilities in your equipment, glyphs hone certain aspects of your skills so you can get the most out of them. A keen understanding of how you want to play will help you glyph for success in TERA.
