Nexus Invasions Have Begun--Video Released!

by Pwnyx

TERA Nexus

Anxious to get into a real fight? Looking for a challenge to occupy your whole guild? Then you might be ready to face the nexus.

A nexus is a tear in the fabric of the Dream where strange, potent monsters invade the world. Players near a nexus automatically receive a quest to stop the incursions. Emerge from a nexus victorious, and you’ll earn significant rewards and reputation with the Agnitor faction.

Nexuses aren’t fights for keeners. Players need to coordinate and work together like never before to survive three increasingly difficult phases.

Want a little taste of the action? Check out the nexus video!

En Masse Reveals Sneak Peek at TERA's Future Content

by Pwnyx

TERA tanks

With TERA's first month in the rearview mirror, we're excited to turn our attention to future content you'll see later this summer. An MMO launch is just the beginning—we're listening to your feedback and incorporating it into our plans for the game.

Many of you have shared your thoughts on TERA's two tank classes, the warrior and lancer. If you play either class, you'll appreciate having more flexibility on both offense and defense, so we're changing defensive skills to consume a new resource instead of MP. (And before you ask, yes—you'll be able to restore that third bar on the top of your screen quickly.) Warriors will gain three new skills, including the ability to block an attack with their twin swords. Lancers will get two new skills, including a skill that should significantly improve lancer mobility.

Brokerage Thumb

Overloaded with dawnhide? Have more Arunic panaceas than you could ever use? Desperate to pick up some superior-quality armor?

Trade brokers are located in all cities, and are accessible in towns by decree of the reigning vanarch, making the Brokerage a convenient way to fill your packs and fatten your purse. You don’t have to be a master accountant or filthy rich to benefit from using the Brokerage, but if you have questions, we’ve written a handy little guide to help you get the most out of your investments.

Inaugural Election Details

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!

Looking for Group? Look No More!

Looking for Group? Look No More!

Playing TERA with a party is great fun, and while the cross-server instance matching system is an excellent tool for quick dungeon runs, our game has so much more to offer!

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.
