Hello, TERA players—Vekas the Wicked Tree here. You may remember me from the Island of Dawn. You know...the place where YOU KILLED ME. (You murderer!) Supposedly I didn't live up to the whole "wicked tree" thing, so En Masse is making me deliver these patch notes. I know it's punishment, but it's also my REVENGE! You're about to read about new instances WHERE YOU WILL DIE. About new groups you can ally with THAT WILL PROBABLY BETRAY YOU IN THE END. About nexuses—interdimensional places THAT WILL BE YOUR DOOM. There's a new playable prologue THAT WILL PROBABLY MAKE YOU PEE YOUR PANTS. You'll even read about new skills, new gear, and NEW WAYS I SHALL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH, MORTAL. Hundreds of changes—NONE OF WHICH WILL SAVE YOU IN THE END.
There, all done. Can I have some pigling now?
In order to facilitate group play in the instanced dungeons, we've implemented the Instance Matching System. The IMS will pick players from a pool of cross-server characters to form groups to tackle the dungeons, helping to minimize wait times.
With this system, the player performs quests to increase reputation with various factions to purchase exclusive items. Reputation levels are Hostile, Suspicious, Apprehensive, Wavering, Neutral, Favorable, Friendly, Trusted, Revered—viewable in the reputation information tab in the character information window.
Six to eight nexuses randomly appear in the Khanovar Front, as well as the Argonea, and Granarkus regions of Val Kaeli. Each nexus has three stages with progressively stronger monsters. If players defeat all monsters at each stage, the nexus closes and the players receive reputation values and reputation points with the Agnitor faction (via the quests the players automatically received when they entered the nexus).
