Glyphs modify your skills to optimize them for the role you intend to fill. In a nutshell, glyphs are like crystals for your skills. Just like crystals help emphasize certain strengths or boost certain abilities in your equipment, glyphs hone certain aspects of your skills so you can get the most out of them. A keen understanding of how you want to play will help you glyph for success in TERA.

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!
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.

Parties (or groups) are a way for TERA players to team up and tackle challenges like BAMs, dungeons, or roaming world bosses. Parties are also a way to complete "regular" quest content quickly, and in good company.
There are different ways to join a party—you can either create your own or join an existing one. Where do you find people to group up with? That will depend on what kind of party you want to join. There are pick-up groups (PUGs), "small" parties, and five-player parties. You can access the Looking for Group (LFG) option at any time by pressing the Y key.
