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.

The time to reign in TERA is upon us! Starting May 18, guild leaders who wish to declare their candidacy for a vanarch position, can. What is a vanarch? Vanarchs are an integral part of TERA's political system. This is an elected position that lets you reign over an entire province for three weeks. Start planning your campaign with our vanarch election calendar!
Elected vanarchs can collect taxes from vendor shops, set tax rates, decide which specialty shops to open in a province, and gain fame for themselves as well as their guilds. Vanarchs will be known across the realm—hopefully for good reasons!
Maybe you want to find a party to tackle a particularly tough world boss. Maybe you have a guild of slayers and warriors, and just want a mystic for some adventuring fun with your friends. Maybe you're tired of waiting in a queue for the "perfect" party, and feel like tackling a dungeon with only three or four players. There are a great number of party combinations in TERA, and there is a built-in way to get exactly the one you want.
A guild is in essence a large group of people who have banded together to play, but are also working towards a larger goal. Being part of a guild is not only an easy way to keep track of your friends and have a pool of people you know to play with, but guilds also play an integral part in TERA's political system.
