Unified Theory Institute

Unified Theory Institute is determined to find the unity within the world of TERA. They want to uncover what pulls all the things in the world together—the magic, the physics, the everything else. A subset of the Mysterium, the Unified Theory Institute supports the elves’ more academic approach to magic—learning by thinking, as it were.

Maxing Out Your Unified Theory Institute Reputation

The “Engineering an Outcome” quest brings you to Allemantheia, where you’ll have access to different quests depending on what your current reputation is. The more rep you have, the more quests you’ll have access to.

Unified Theory Institute Reputation Levels
Favorable 0–15,000
Friendly 0–20,000
Trusted 0–25,000
Revered 0–1,000

Each new reputation level resets the counter to zero. Don’t worry—you’re still gaining influence with Unified Theory Institute. Unlike many other factions, Unified Theory Institute bumps you to a favorable reputation just for hitting level 60. Think of it like getting tenure.

Unified Theory Institute Quests

Stationed in Allemantheia, Unified Theory Institute starts by sending you on tasks around the city. Sometimes they’ll send you off with a delivery. As you get access to more quests, however, they’ll start sending you to Crucible of Flame and Balder’s Refuge.

Who Is Unified Theory Institute, Anyway?

Unified Theory Institute, while bred from the Mysterium, doesn’t have the same political undertones. They don’t really deal with the outside world, opting instead for intelligent and semi-practical applications of science—like building giant robots. To pick an example entirely at random.
