One Shots: Summer camp

I ask for “camp” from all of you — and camp is what I got, although not necessarily what I envisioned. Sometimes it’s better than that! So what did Rees Racer immediately go to when I requested pictures of summer camp?

“There’s no pretending TERA is an open-world sandbox,” he said. “It is straight-up themepark. This means there are plenty of towns (large and small) along with various and sundry other quest hubs cleverly disguised as camps. I’m having good fun leveling the newest Valkyrie class, and here she is during a brief respite at the Desert Research Station in Val Aureum.”

May I float the suggestion that saddling a lion and pulling on its mane while shouting “GIDDYUP!” only has one logical and unfortunate conclusion?

Moonlight Blade shows off its loli characters

If you’re the kind of player who won’t play TERA because of the Elin, kindly exit this article because you’re not going to like this either. Steparu has a report out today on Moonlight Blade, which we already knew would have its own version of the sexualized but adorable little girl archetype but now has its own trailer.

“The adolescent character in the Chinese version is supposed to be slightly older and taller compared to the upcoming Korean version due to Chinese people complaining that they wanted a teenish character instead of a very young character,” Steparu explains.

It is still unknown whether the game will ever make its way westward; rumors to that effect from earlier this year have not been confirmed. The trailer is down below.

TERA’s latest update, Lakan’s Fury, is live today

It’s time for TERA players to head to the dungeons with the Lakan’s Fury update. What is Lakan angry about? Probably not a lack of dungeons, considering this patch adds two dungeon options. The hard more of Velik’s Sanctuary is a group dungeon rated at five stars, containing a variety of loot and two new titles for players who brave its depths. Players who want an additional challenge can dive into the new solo Pit of Petrax dungeon, a four-star level 65 dungeon with accessories for intrepid explorers.

This patch also contains several reward adjustments to remove undesirable items and offer more rewards for older content, and there’s the usual array of bug fixes to improve your overall quality of life. You can check out the patch trailer just below if you want to get really psyched up for the dungeon experience.

TERA plots Lakan’s Fury for June 6; here’s the latest trailer

TERA’s Lakan’s Fury update will land next week on June 6th, following an extended anniversary event. It’s a Tuesday that’s already shaping up to be a whopper for MMO gamers, and this update? It’s all about the dungeon experience:

“This update brings two more end-game dungeons to the critically acclaimed free-to-play MMORPG: the new solo dungeon Pit of Petrax, and a hard mode version of Velik’s Sanctuary. […] The hard mode of Velik’s Sanctuary is a five-star difficulty dungeon featuring four challenging bosses. Players who can stop Lakan and his minions will be rewarded with a chance to earn the top gear in the game. Solo players seeking an additional challenge can enter the all-new dungeon, Pit of Petrax. This four-star difficulty dungeon has players squaring off against the fangspawn Petrax for a chance to earn top-end accessories.”

Oh yeah, and there’s a trailer. There’s always a trailer!

TERA’s anniversary event goes out with a bang

You have only a few more days left to squeeze out the fun — and rewards — from TERA’s fifth anniversary event. The good news is that the team is ending the game’s birthday celebration with a bang, so if you move fast, you’ll be able to profit from it.

Through the end of May, players can collect blue boxes scattered all over the game world and contain gobs of anniversary tokens. And if that’s not enough in terms of rewards, players can beat Velik’s Sanctuary from now through June 5th for bonus goodies including pirate costumes and weapon skins.

Players have been collaborating on strategy and tips regarding the collection of blue boxes for those sweet tokens. Since there’s a ton of mounts, cosmetics, skills, and potions that can be purchased with these, it’s not surprising that they are in high demand.

One Shots: Action arrested

In tossing out a screenshot challenge last week revolving around combat action shots, you’d think that this would be a piece of cake. After all, we do fight a little bit in MMOs, right? But it turns out that capturing a good-looking combat picture is really difficult in the midst of the chaos… unless your MMO is set up for it.

“I hardly ever take screenshots in combat,” said Zyrusticae. “Usually too busy being distracted by actually playing the game. But Warframe’s Captura tool certainly changes things in that regard. Wish all games had something on this level. I need to jump in and take more screenshots!”

It is pretty sweet! Definitely second the motion to port this over to all MMORPGs.

TERA’s third week of anniversary rewards includes a pin-up car

The last week of TERA anniversary rewards is almost upon us, starting on 5/23. That means you still have one more day to turn in Anniversary Tokens for the past week’s rewards, but it also means you can look forward to the final batch of rewards. And what’s on the list for the last week? Why, a hatchback car decorated in cheesecake pictures of the Elin, the race that looks like prepubescent girls!

You could also get a permanent disco ball.

It’s worth noting that the car mount is a permanent mount that has never been available before, and it likely won’t be available again given the nature of the event. Whether or not that triggers your collector instinct is for you to decide, but you’ll want to decide soon as the game’s anniversary celebration moves into its final week.

TERA features bonus dungeon loot for the next week

What’s the best part of dungeons? Is it the shared social experience of fighting incredible odds? The bizarre visuals? The unlikely and very lonely bosses? The opportunity to show how leet you are by flinging out skills that no one has ever seen before? Of course not; it’s all about the loot, silly.

Well… maybe it can be about more than just the loot, but you have to admit that getting new shinies and spiffy upgrades is a compelling motivator. And in TERA this month, running one dungeon in particular is going to pay out more than usual.

From now through May 22nd, players who run the Abscess dungeon will see a chance at bonus loot dropping at the end. It looks like there are cosmetics, consumables, and even candy canes as these extra rewards. And whether or not the Abscess pays out bonus loot, all players will get anniversary tokens for completing the instance.
