TERA’s popular Summer Festival begins Tuesday, July 21, with the annual reunion of the Consos Clan in Balder’s Refuge for the Festival of the Sun.
Part 1: Festival of the Sun (Tuesday, July 21 – Tuesday, August 11)
Journey to the Temple of the Sun in Balder's Refuge and help the Consos Clan priests get their temple back in order (Festival of the Sun events and quests are for characters level 58 and higher).
Fight off the Monsters
Your first step on the festival quest sends you through the many rooms of the Temple of the Sun, clearing out the vermin that have moved in since last year.
Once that's done, you're tasked with helping clean up their mess: Droppings, garbage, and graffiti are all fair game for this group of daily quests. Help the Temple of the Sun shine the way it was always meant to!
Of course, the Festival of the Sun’s daily quests are randomized, so you won’t know what you’re in for on any given day until you log in. To maximize your event rewards, check back every day and complete all the quests!
If all that work gets you ready to cool off with a snack, you're in luck—You can make yourself a sweet iced dessert by collecting ingredients around the festival site.
As the Festival of the Sun comes to a close, the second part of the celebration begins on the sunny shores of Ostgarath.
Part 2: The Beach Bash (Tuesday, August 11 – Tuesday, September 1)
The Castanica Beach Bash is located on Dragonturtle Beach and Kerozen Isle, along the coast of Ostgarath just north of Castanica. Talk to mini-game coordinators to play these exciting mini-games:
- Splash Cannon Mini-Game
- Speak to the mini-game coordinator, then shoot water at the demons out in the surf for points: red sea monsters give you points, blue sea monsters cost you points.
- Watermelon Mini-Game
- Tie on a blindfold and get to smashing watermelons. Don’t confuse them with the barrels, though—they sound just like the watermelons, but don’t give you any points.
- Collect sand from around the beach and build as many sandcastles as you can. Build enough, and you can get magic items that let you build sandcastles anywhere—whenever you like.
- While the mini-games and sandcastles are available to all levels, quests associated with the beach party are only available to characters level 48 and higher, so level up quick to be sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun (or rewards)!
Each event that you complete at the Festival of the Sun or the Beach Bash rewards you with tokens redeemable for a variety of costumes, consumables, service vouchers, and more throughout both halves of the festival.
The Summer Festival ends September 1, so get out there and make the most of the summer while it lasts!
