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!
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.
A guild is in essence a large group of people who have banded together to play, but are also working towards a larger goal. Being part of a guild is not only an easy way to keep track of your friends and have a pool of people you know to play with, but guilds also play an integral part in TERA's political system.

If you wound up on a different TERA server than your friends, En Masse Entertainment has got you covered. Our account management system will offer server transfers starting April 30—a day before TERA officially launches. True action combat is better with friends, after all.
Server transfers will be free and immediate (no waiting period) throughout the initial rush of new players to TERA. Once the server populations stabilize, we'll place limits on the number of transfers, the level of your character, and how much gold you can take with you to your new server. We'll charge for server transfers you make for convenience reasons, but transfers made to balance server populations will always be free.
A bustling but not overcrowded server is key to the TERA experience, so we won't allow transfers to servers that are already oversaturated; we can monitor populations in real time and adjust server eligibility on the fly. Learn more about how to transfer servers.
We've fine-tuned your first sessions in TERA to deliver maximum action and get your journey off to a rapid start.
Tired of games that start you in an out-of-the-way village where the chieftain wants you to collect coconuts in the jungle? TERA's new playable prologue starts you right in the middle of the action: a beachhead under assault by demonic forces. It's not just a cutscene—you'll be fighting big-ass monsters within minutes, learning the controls as you go.
TERA is a place where you'll spend hundreds of action-packed hours. The least we can do is make it as fun, challenging, and immersive as possible.
A great MMORPG is a place where you'll spend hundreds of hours, and TERA wants to make sure those hours are full of action and achievement, not boredom or frustration. We've tackled a long list of "polish" elements to make TERA as player-friendly as possible.
Take action against TERA's toughest terrors...with dozens of friends and allies...while the world hangs in the balance. Not a bad way to spend a Monday night!
In remote corners of Northern Shara, something wants to emerge into the world of TERA. Monsters invade through a hole in reality called a nexus, then terrorize the surrounding area. You can join the battle at a moment's notice. Larger and scarier monsters pour out of the nexus as time goes on, but if you fight hard enough, you can close the nexus, keep part of the world safe—and earn a share of high-level loot.
Above all else, TERA is a game, and your enjoyment of it will depend a lot on memories of special moments and accomplishments you gain on your way to max level. But once you've played through 60 levels of pulse-pounding action combat, completed thousands of quests, fought your way through millions of monsters, what then?
Plenty. TERA's endgame is full of things to do, and some would say it's a reward in and of itself. Here are just a few of the things you can do at level 60, or rather, after it.
