TERA is merging its PC servers too – here’s how it’s all going down in September

    
11
Last month, En Masse dropped its console servers for TERA from 22 down to 7. Now, the company is planning a similar round of merges for the western PC playerbase come the morning of September 18th. Players will be able to opt in to the merge server of their choice starting on September 4th, so if you’re a dedicated TERA player, you’ll probably be taking advantage of the early transfers.

“This merge is intended to unify the PC community on three servers in order to provide players with more grouping opportunities, faster dungeon and PvP queues and a more bustling in-game economy for traders. Mount Tyrannas and Fey Forest servers will merge into the new PvP server, Ascension Valley and Tempest Reach will merge into the new PvE server, and Celestial Hills will remain as a PvE RP server. En Masse will look to the community to help choose the final names for the new servers their characters will live on, and will announce details on how the community can vote on their preferred names soon.”

Active players should definitely check out the game’s merge FAQ, as there’s a complicated list of caveats, especially for those of you who play on multiple servers and need to pare down your character lists (it’s capped at 20) or prepare backup names in case somebody else claims yours first.

There’s a lot of debate about the RP server currently, it’ll be interesting to see if that’ll end up being rolled into the new PVE server sooner rather than later.

“…and Celestial Hills will remain as a PvE RP server.”

…as I indicated with a degree of cryptic’ness, it doesn’t look like that server will be affected. Unless I am reading that wrong.

(BTW, what’s an OwO? o.O)

That’s certainly their plan, but there’s a massive thread on the forums against leaving it out. A developer (if I understood correctly) seemed to indicate there’s a possibility that they could merge it in if many CH users take advantage of the free transfer and jump ship. It seems like they don’t want to do this, but the community is attempting to force their hand.

As for OwO. It’s a meme associated with people trying to be overly cute, such as the Elin :P I’ll give you a video as an example of the gist.

Well…you know where “the community” can stuff themselves if this cause my characters to lose their names. >.<

As for the OwO…I think that means more mischievous, like a cat…instead of cute. The "w" represents the upper jaw of said felid. I could be wrong though. /monkas

Maybe, I dunno XD
But yeah, I think there’ll be a lot of characters lost if they do merge the server.

Here’s hoping they give us five free character slots like they did the console players.

The FAQ is here: http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/faq-for-the-tera-pc-server-merge

A ways down, they mention giving us an unspecified number of free character slots. However, they do warn about thinking it over carefully before using them for the one server where you want your characters to be.
