Inaugural Subscription Discounts Extended

TERA customers now have an additional month to subscribe to TERA at reduced inaugural rates!

We know some of our customers have not been able to lock in their discounted subscription rates due to an issue that prevents customers from editing subscriptions. While we're working to resolve this issue, we have decided to extend the inaugural pricing for another month past the original May 31 deadline, through June 30, 2012. This extension should allow everyone to take advantage of this great discount on subscriptions.

Patch Notes 17.29.02 Now Available

by Pwnyx

Patch 17.29.02

Patch 17.29.02 will be deployed during tomorrow's early morning (PST) maintenance. Get ready for some sweet new stuff when you log in, like the Temple of Temerity (remember that awesome video we posted a while back?), a new level 60 dungeon instance. You're tasked with protecting a relic for 20 (20!) minutes. But the really cool part is that the rewards are on a sliding scale, as it were, so if you protect the relic for 20 minutes, awesome, but if you protect the relic, and kill a named mob—even better! Do the aforementioned and kill two named mobs and the rewards are even greater. There are four levels of rewards, so push yourself to great heights and reap the benefits. Don't forget to have fun!

Greetings again, fellow soldiers! Tamur, force commander of Kaiator, here (again). I’m happy to report that I’m now seeing the passion I had hoped for during this initial vanarch election. Your posters are bold and your devotion to your candidates is inspiring. Real leaders bring out the best in their soldiers, and it’s clear from these posters that we have some inspirational leaders in our ranks.

I chose the victors based on the effectiveness of the submitted posters and the persuasiveness of the accompanying texts describing why their candidates should win. There were many worthwhile entries. I present you with the strongest here.

View their posters. Read their words. I think you’ll share my excitement.

by Pwnyx

Brokerage Thumb
