64-bit Update is Now Live!

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/faa5e763e841e95910cb122c4ffd0222d88fad54.jpg Hang on to your Bits The 64-bit TERA client update is here at last! This update has been long in waiting for both players and the TERA dev team. For more on what ‘64-bit’ means for TERA’s present and future content, read last week’s preview post and the June developer note about the new client. In short, the 64-bit upgrade changes some fundamental aspects of the TERA client and how it utilizes your system’s hardware. Breaking free from a 32-bit system means overall smoother gameplay, less crashes in crowded areas, and updated minimum system requirements. 64-bit Client System Requirements Minimum Recommended Operating System Windows 10 (64-bit) Windows 10 (64-bit) CPU Intel i3-7100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Intel i5-7500 / AMD Ryzen 7 1700 RAM 8GB 12GB Graphics Card Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 / AMD Radeon R9 280 Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 380 Disk Space 80GB* 80GB* *Please reserve 15GB for updates/patches Drivers Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 SP Redistributable Package (x64) DirectX 11 or higher Most recent GPU drivers There’s not much time left before the update, so be absolutely sure your computer meets these requirements before the client updates on Tuesday, August 11. As with many games, systems that fall below the minimum specs will likely experience issues that can prevent you from playing. Enter the Commander's Residence Commander’s Residence is a weekend-only dungeon available between Friday (00:00 UTC) and Sunday (23:59 UTC) for heroes looking for a rare challenge. This top-tier 20-person raid will test your limits against the dreaded First Corps Commander, Maknakh. Dungeon details are listed in the patch notes. There are some additional restrictions and requirements to read about before you attempt to pay Commander’s Residence a visit. Good luck! Return to Rift's Edge {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/4e761cafbf68e92a91fa308ffb1465fd9f7f3657.jpg Rift’s Edge is back! Previously a 7-player raid, this revamped Rift’s Edge is a 5-player dungeon for players over Lv68 and iLv 452 looking to score some Dark Shard feedstock, Zenobia’s Breeze Crates, and a hoard of other gear and materials. See this update’s full patch notes for the whole list. Rampaging RK-9 Kennel RK-9 Kennel makes its return with a few upgrades. Like Rift’s Edge, this revamped Rampaging RK-9 Kennel has a few surprises in store. Boss fights will be more intense than the original RK-9 Kennel, but the rewards are worth the challenge! Players Lv 70 and iLv 461 enter at your own risk if you’re hunting for Exodor Gear. Mount Collector's Card Event A special card collection event is underway! Similar to the Courageous Card Event held in April, the new Mount Collector’s Card Event is the perfect way to beef up your card collection while tackling dungeon-based Vanguard Requests (excluding Rift's Edge & Commander's Residence). The event will add new mount-themed cards to the mix, giving experienced collectors something fresh for their binders. Read this forum post for info! More Update Details Want the full scoop? This massive update also introduces a new equipment & accessory reroll method, class balance changes, new training dungeons, plus changes to PvP and Partner Adventures. Go to the forums and read the full patch notes if you haven’t already.

TERA Battle Arena Coming Soon

TERA Battle Arena is a team-based battle (available as a free download for your TERA client this fall) featuring heroes drawn from the past, present, and future history of TERA. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/43c62724fedd7f078cfc6a1c1c1362eb76d14c00.jpg After the defeat of Shandra Manaya, strange portals appeared across the world, offering glimpses of other realms where dead heroes lived on, live heroes fell into darkness, and heroes that never were stepped up to save the world. To learn more about these strange visions of alternate realities, a group of heroes fought their way through to a new realm called Agaia, where they encountered eerie replicas of themselves from worlds almost, but not quite the same as their own. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/cc54339c1f44e45b8b60dde5e138687057c58ee0.jpg In this twisted underworld stands a majestic structure known only as the Tower of Shara, an architectural wonder defended by even more familiar faces. Only this time, they’re ones corrupted and controlled by the mysterious…Manahan? {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/b8ac7b8f5fdefd2ad2506f031fa236f2c1221482.jpg The heroes you’ll control in TERA Battle Arena each have their own skill sets and abilities, drawn from those TERA players have spent years mastering. Players will also be able to customize their heroes with runes and cosmetic items. We’ll be revealing more about this great new game mode as the summer moves on.

Summerfest 2020!

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/2377954fecf662df586ef68500000067d052d0fa.jpg 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) {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/1824be9a898c0d2ccaf215624daa877cb8469ea8.jpg 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. Temple Cleanup 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! Ice Treats 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) {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/b51a48e3777e3e2505817c4a1a5448938f01b01f.jpg 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. Sandcastles 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!

Crab Hunt 2020

Until Tuesday, June 30, armies of crabs are gathering off the shores of Ostgarath to stage attacks on TERA’s coastal territories. Per TERA tradition, we are calling all heroes to band together and stop these terrifying crustaceans—and earn some loot in the process! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/1604bbd269c9bd0b9f210924fe8abbdfd18e9480.jpg Crabs will appear at both “low” and “high” tides: 1600 – 1900 UTC 0300 – 0600 UTC As the crab invasion continues, the killer crustaceans will deploy progressively stronger reinforcements. Here’s their plan of attack: June 16: Small crabs arrive in Ostgarath and small villages all over TERA. June 19: Medium-sized crabs land in Ostgarath. June 23: Giant crabs hit the Serpentis Isle beaches. In addition, we have put together a small crafting project for this year’s Crab Hunt. As you hunt, you’ll have a chance to collect materials needed to assemble an event-exclusive Deep Blue Head Shrimp Crate—complete with unique title “A Rare Catch.” To aid you in your crafting, you’ll get an Event] Head Shrimp Kit the first time you log in during the Crab Hunt. To use the kit and assemble a Blue Head Shrimp Rewards Crate (containing a Deep Blue Head Shrimp and Achievement - A Rare Catch!), you will need to collect the following items: From Small Crabs From Medium Crabs From Giant Crabs  Head Shrimp Eye  Head Shrimp Eye  Head Shrimp Eye  Head Shrimp Stuffing  Head Shrimp Twine  Head Shrimp Scale The crabs you attack may also drop gems, potions, and enchanting materials—so you’ll be well rewarded for your efforts in the Hunt. See you on the beach!

Draakon Arena Update

TERA’s newest content update is live, featuring new dungeon challenges, a new adventure system for your Partner companions, and a new high-level PvP area! This is a big update, so be sure and check out the patch notes for all the changes, and keep reading for some of the best features. Draakon Arena {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6919021/f6aa447fcdba42b6751e99d47cdce1a7c93a82b5.jpg First up, Draakon Arena. The notorious azart force commander Kalligar takes the field in this new 5-player instance, the first dungeon specifically designed for level 70 players! It comes in two delicious flavors: normal (level 70, ilvl 456), and (Hard) mode (level 70, ilvl 470). Defeat Kalligar and he may drop the top-of-the-line Warlord Ring or Warlord Necklace accessories, and possibly some resizing stones to customize their abilities. (Be sure and check the patch notes for more information on Draakon Arena, our new training dungeons, and revisions to Pit of Petrax and Corrupted Skynest.) Partner Adventure System Next up, the new Partner Adventure System is now live, which means it's time to put your loyal companions to work! You may send up to three Partners (per account) on Partner Adventures in various locations across the world, each with their own rewards. A successful adventure can earn gatherables, skill advancement scrolls, relics and halidoms... even dungeon rewards! Teach your partners the Gifted Skill: Adventure Enhancement to increase the rewards earned in Partner Adventures. Additionally, Instant Completion Tickets now drop in level 65+ dungeons, which can immediately bring your trusty partner back home with loot in hand. Check out the Partner Adventure System for yourself using the in-game Companion menu. New Release: Balder's Radiant Weapon Skin Loot Box Finally, Balder’s blessings to you! Balder's Radiant Weapon Skin Loot Boxes have arrived in the TERA Store, and may contain golden jeweled weapon skins inspired by Balder, the god who gave his own eyes so that the children of the Dream could see through the darkness. Look to the sky in TERA, and you’ll see the ringed eyes of Balder looking down upon you! Each Balder’s Weapon Skin Loot box has a chance to produce either a Balder’s Golden Weapon Skin Smart Box, a Balder’s Radiant Weapon Skin Loot Box, or Modular Loot Crates packed full of useful items for any character. Radiant weapon skins are identical to the golden versions but feature an additional glow and ringed particle effect reminiscent of Balder’s splendor! There’s even more in the Draakon Arena update we can’t list here, including class balance changes, new Duranium gathering materials for crafting, new Speedy Gathering Tools, and a mysterious merchant that can appear in high level dungeons!

TERA Anniversary: Chupathingy Pets?

Based on the results of a recent independent study, we’ve learned there are two things people really like about TERA: running dungeons, and Chupathingies. We’re not exactly sure how accurate the study was, but we we’re dedicating the month of May to finding out! Starting Tuesday, May 5, we’re adding Chupatoken drops to the final bosses of select dungeons. In addition to cool items like enchanting scrolls and Feasts, you can redeem your tokens in the Chupatoken Shop for the most lovable lizard of all, a Chupathingy pet with the ability to Auto-Loot! Whether you prefer your Chupathingy in classic Blue or neon Red, you’ll be the darling of the internet and a meme-worthy master, chief! And be sure and check out our forums for a full breakdown of what dungeons drop Chupatokens, and what they can get you. Also this month, we’re running a dual login event.
