Killian Profile Thumb

Greetings, puny mortals! I, Killian, welcome you to TERA: Rising. Below you’ll find all the delightful ways I’m going to torture play with all the newcomers.

I hear everything’s “free” now. Well, no one asked me about that. I hate freedom…it gives mortals “ideas” and eventually “aspirations.” You’re all my toys, nothing more. You’re not free at all! Whose idea was all this “free” nonsense? Was it you, Treeshark? EXTRA TORTURE FOR YOU!

I guess the upside is that now there’ll be more delicious mortals—more pain I can give. Because I’m a giver—always have been. It’s free-to-PAIN now in TERA! Mua ha ha ha!

—Killian, god of pain

    • You must be level 40 or above to transfer servers.
    • Server transfer cooldowns increased from 7 to 30 days.

Battlegrounds

  • The Champions’ Skyring (3v3) is now live! Please check out the details on our Champions’ Skyring game guide page.
    • Your team can opt to play for practice or for rank. Or, as we call it, the schoolyard or the killing floor.
    • Ranked results affect both Bellicarium and the new Killing Spree reputation.
  • Fraywind Canyon
    • A notification message is now displayed when a BAM dies. Apparently, being crushed underneath it isn’t a clear enough message.

    • A player’s HP/MP automatically replenishes upon entering/exiting Fraywind Canyon.
    • The desperate resolve buff has been modified.

      • Power and Endurance now increase by 40 instead of 60.
      • It does not activate during the first 2,000 points scored. You weren’t that desperate, were you?
    • The powerful morale buff from the teralith has been modified.
      • Endurance now increases by 20 (instead of 40), and attack speed increases by 20% (instead of 30%).
    • Objects in spawn points now continually grant the clemency buff.
      • Buff makes you invincible and is granted at the base.
      • Buff lasts until you attack. If you don’t initiate combat, it lasts a minimum of 10 seconds—longer if you remain at the base. But only weaklings cower at the base!
    • An additional 80 points are added to winning team’s leader’s battleground score.
    • When you die, time left until resurrection is now displayed in green.
    • When you resurrect, the camera will point toward the base entrance, because we all know how disorienting death can be.
    • Kills now add 8 points to the total match score (was 5).
  • Rain of Arrows and Hail Storm visuals have been modified to more easily tell the difference between enemies’ and allies’ attacks. Apparently that’s important or something.

      • This “legitimate business owner” and his associates offer quests from Cutthroat Harbor.

      • These scientists in Allemantheia seek to meld magic and technology.
      • Level 60 characters automatically get favorable reputation with the institute.

  • All daily quests reward 20% more gold.
