Here’s what we asked for: juggernauts, dracoloths, arachnens, and hydrath demons wearing silly hats, dressing up in holiday garb, and sporting “Kick Me” signs on their backs. But the mobs refused (something about the indignity of it all, how dare you ask us that, and so on). We compromised on this: Double Dungeon Drop Weekend. Dungeon bosses get to wear their regular outfits, but they have to give you double the loot!
The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived—the Argon Queen update is here—and with it, the argon queen herself, Shandra Manaya. In her lair, Manaya’s Core, she eagerly awaits the bravest, most seasoned Valkyon soldiers.
The Argon War will never end as long as the argon queen lives. Shandra Manaya, TERA’s toughest challenge, awaits you in her lair. Learn more about the ultimate level 60 dungeon on our Argon Queen page today!
You battled across the vast domain of the Valkyon Federation and foiled a conspiracy aimed at its heart. You defeated numerous gods in battle. You stopped Kelsaik from destroying the Dream. You fought the implacable argons in Northern Shara.

In your heart you know you’re the best—now you can prove it. Show off your dominance or plan the downfall of others with TERA’s leaderboards. Find new allies. Choose new enemies. See your name up in lights.
TERA's rich and complex storylines often lead you into the most dangerous places imaginable on both continents. The biggest, baddest BAMs guard TERA's deepest, darkest secrets down inside instanced dungeons. These fortresses house demented vampirs, mass murderers, and evil gods—are you ready to face them? Will you do it alone?
Our comprehensive guides to TERA's instanced dungeons will prepare you for the worst so you can be at your best. We provide helpful tips, like what you should do when Baracos enrages in the Golden Labyrinth, which trash mobs to avoid while traipsing through Sigil Adstringo, or where the story quests begin that lead you to the Bastion of Lok.
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.
