Dedicated TERA fans, we are in the home stretch! The start of our Open Beta Test on April 19 marks the first time players will be able to create and play characters that will persist through to launch and beyond. Pre-order players will be able to reserve their preferred character name and enjoy early access to the Open Beta Test servers a day before the world experiences TERA. This event will use a new build of TERA requiring a 4.3 GB patch. Check out our New Launch Features page for what's coming to TERA in this build!

Of course we know you're amazing, but some of TERA's heaviest hitters need convincing. If you prove you've got what it takes, they'll reward you with gear that will make your guild green with envy.
As you explore the world of TERA, you'll develop a reputation that stretches across four continents. Some of the most powerful organizations in the world will send you into the action on their behalf—with the promise of stellar rewards if you succeed.
Over the past weeks, since the start of closed beta testing, we've continued to improve TERA support, so we wanted to take this time to share some updates from our Customer Support team. In our last post about support we discussed the addition of the TERA Answers site, a place where players like you can ask and answer questions, and where top-rated answers bubble up to the top so they're easy to find.
As we approach the official launch of TERA on May 1, we've thrown open the floodgates and now provide support twenty-four hours a day, every day of the week—even holidays and leap days—so there's always someone available to answer your questions.
Whether you're earning a dead god's final blessing or desperately defending the human capital, you'll put your action-combat skills to the test in TERA's dungeons. Plus...phat lewt!
Our new instance dungeon matcher helps you find the right healer, tank, or damage-dealer, gives you significant bonuses (depending on your role) for grouping, and even sends you extra rewards when the last boss falls. Speaking of rewards, you'll now see increased drops in all dungeons--up to double and triple the rates you've seen in past betas. Do your part, and you might be the proud owner of a Raiment of Nezrakul, Cauterus Axe, or Skysplitter's Bow.
Best of all, we added new dungeons and redesigned others so there's always some high-octane dungeon action available.
So you just got done having a kick-ass time playing TERA during its last closed beta weekend. Your standards of MMO gameplay have been shattered; the bar has been raised. As the pioneer of games your friends and your guild will play, you're eager to share the experience and have them try next weekend's open beta.
They've heard you talk about TERA's skill-demanding, true action combat but they want to see it in action. What do you say? "Challenge accepted."
For more than two years, the TERA community has speculated on which voice actors and actresses would bring their talents to the game. We saw some awesome suggestions and more than a few outrageous ones too. If the title didn't already give it away, you'll be pleased to learn that Michael Hogan and Claudia Black are both in our roster of voiceover talent!
Read on to watch Michael in action as he records the voice track for Commander Samael.
