An update from the developers confirms that both of these issues are being addressed. The latter is simply a bug that needs to be fixed, while the former is something that the developers are working to plan out in a way that’s fair and viable. There’s no ETA, but the news alone may provide players with some much-needed hope for the future.
Meanwhile, the cash shop version of the dragons have gone live today with the launch of TERA’s Guilded Age patch.
“Guilds interested in demonstrating their combat prowess can participate in the new weekly guild battle, Civil Unrest: Velika. In preparation for the event, guilds construct their own guild tower within a designated zone surrounding the capital city of Velika. During the event, which occurs weekly on Saturdays at 7PM PT, guilds will face-off in all-out battle, aiming to destroy the towers of other guilds while protecting their own. The guild with the last tower standing when time runs out will be crowned the victor, earning their guild a jackpot of taxes collected from all merchant NPC transactions over the previous week.
“En Masse is also teasing an overhaul for TERA’s most iconic classes, starting with the sorcerer class as part of the upcoming ‘Spellbound’ update later this year. This will mark the first in a series of class revamps to continue through 2017.
In conjunction with the release, there’s a new free Steam DLC package for newbies on Steam until November. According to En Masse, “It includes a permanent green hood accessory, a 7-day Zephyr flying mount, a 7-day Dragonette pet that gathers loot automatically, a 7-day 100% XP Boost, and more!”
