August Leveling Event


In August, we’re shining the leveling spotlight on one of TERA’s two healing classes—the priest—and changing our Twitch stream time.

As a primary healer, priests focus on restoring health and vitality to their allies. They derive power from their devotion to the gods, but it’s their devotion to others that earns them fame and friends on the battlefield. A priest has spells to fortify, purify, and resurrect party members in need, and more than enough firepower to go it alone.

Create and level a new priest—or continue levelling one you already have—and you’ll receive rewards at specific milestones, as well as some helpful tips and lore from fan-favorite NPC Leander! Or for bonus karma, create a tank or damage dealer to level up alongside a priestly friend, be it as a guildmate, part of a buddy-up duo, or even just finding a priest as you make your way throughout the world and lending a hand.

Remember, the gods are watching this month, and they always reward the faithful! So to make things even more fun, we’ve added some community events as well.

Priest loading screen art contest

Give us your best artistic take on what it means to truly be a priest, either from your own experiences, or based on the level-up messages sent by Magister Leander. Submit potential loading screens (1900 × 1200.png) to by Friday, August 24 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. (Include your character names and server; Standard contest rules apply.) Community Manager KitTeaCup will announce the winners on stream Friday, August 24 during our final TERA Twitch stream of the month at 2:30 p.m. PDT. We'll award 10,000 EMP for the winning entry; 5,000 EMP for second place; and 2,500 EMP for third place.

Player Lore

You’ve heard us talk before about TERA’s history and the role of its many gods, and now it’s time to craft your own priestly tale. Post your TERA tale to the official TERA forums, and we’ll read our favorites on the August 24 Twitch Stream!

Priest Game Guides

Have a favorite dungeon or skill that you know everything about? Create a TERA guide about it for us—and all the other priest-loving players out there—and post it in the official TERA forums!. As above, we’ll announce our favorites during the end-of month Twitch Stream.

Keyboard Confessionals

In addition to the lore contest, we’d love to hear (and see) your experiences of what it means to play a priest in TERA. There’s no word limit or specific format we’re looking for here—just post your personal story in the Role-playing forum thread: Keyboard Confessionals.

Twitch Time Change

Starting August 3, our TERA Twitch streams are moving to 2:30 p.m. PDT on Fridays, and will remain at that time throughout August.

KitTeaCup and Singlebear have a few more things in the works for August, so tune into our streams and pay attention to the forums and the EME discord server throughout the month for all the latest TERA news!
