'Tera' (ALL) Guardians of the Sky Update Adds New Missions, Event Dungeon, Special Loot And More

TERA is an MMORPG where you battle epic wars, protect your kingdom from demise, and brings you thrills never experienced before in traditional MMOs with its action-filled gameplay and riveting visuals.

TERA brings true action combat into a high fantasy MMORPG setting. Players explore a vast world where their combat skills are put to the test against deadly Big Ass Monsters (BAMs). They’ll need to actively dodge out of the way of incoming attacks, study enemy attack patterns, and execute precise skill combos to take them down! You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. No more "pointing and clicking" and playing combat relay with the enemies. Furthermore, not only do you control the action, TERA is also set in a world where the players will dictate the flow of the economy and individually impact the community environment.

In TERA, players master their destiny in a richly detailed game world with a pioneering dynamic combat system. Individual player actions can transform the balance of power in a world where old rivalries are erased, and disparate races must form a common federation to stave off destruction by marauding monsters and warring gods.

You become part of the realm of Arborea, created by the Ancient Gods. You defend your race in a fantasy world where your creators, descendents of the Ancient Gods, have warred upon each other centuries ago. Join forces and become part of a vast world in constant conflict, where new battles and weaponry skills will leave you grasping for more as you become immersed in the realm of Arborea. Take charge and become the hero the world seeks!

With a character type to match nearly every play style and innumerable customization options, TERA gives every player a gameplay experience that is uniquely their own. Quest solo, bring your friends, or make new ones…the world of TERA awaits.

August’s monthly update soars to new heights with the introduction of a new type of open world Guardian Legion missions taking players to the skies to defend the communities much loved sky whales and repel invading alien forces. The update also re-introduces the Demon’s Wheel dungeon as a temporary event, with a chance for players to earn special rewards each week and some ultra-rare, limited quantity drops for lucky groups favored by the diabolical Demoros.

For the first time in TERA, players will be able to fight in the skies above Arborea! Two new Guardian Legion missions give players a new perspective on the games True Action Combat. In Rhapsody of Wind and Fire players aerial acrobatics will be on display as they collect energy orbs to help clear the path for and defend the games peaceful sky whales from desert wraiths. Players will also test their mettle against alien forces, blowing attack drones out of the sky until they ultimately confront the mothership for the final showdown. New dragon mounts are available in the TERA Store for players wanting to bring a more menacing ally to these high-flying battles!

Starting on Thursday August 16, TERA’s Demon’s Wheel dungeon is back open for business. Open each week from Thursday through Tuesday, and ending Tuesday, September 11, players can revisit the dungeon for a chance to earn special bonus loot each week including dungeon currency, masks with stats, and a variety of temporary cosmetic items. A select number of very lucky parties will get a chance to earn some hyper-rare loot that can only drop a limited number of times across the game. These cosmetic drops will grant permanent version of select mounts and footstep animations to all members of the group, while five extremely lucky players will earn the rarest reward – the azure phoenix flying mount.

August has much more going on for the TERA community than the Guardians of the Sky update. Coinciding with the monthly leveling event for the priest class, rewarding bonuses for players leveling old priest or newly created priests, players can enter a priest-themed loading screen art contest, submit priest-centric game guides, and engage in more creative efforts for rewards and recognition.

TERA is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 sand PC.
