TERA: Rising Patch Notes 19.04.02


Everyone is so anxious about TERA’s transformation into a F2P model with the upcoming release TERA: Rising on 5th of February.

Here are the patch notes for this exiting package:

Account Status

If you want to know how accounts have changed, please check out our FAQ.

Nexus Changes

  • Nexus Traverse minimum party size has changed from 10 to 7, in case you can’t find enough brave souls to die with you.
  • Nexus Largesse buff has been added to Nexus Traverse.
    • The buff increases drop rate on traverse sovereign and traverse mutilators.
    • The buff stacks once for each player grouped inside Nexus Traverse.
  • Nexus reputation reward costs have been lowered for tier 13 and 14 equipment.
  • Nexus times have changed to noon and 7 p.m. Pacific time every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, find your own ways to die.

Server Transfers

  • Server transfers are now available between Mount Tyrannas, Celestial Hills, and Tempest Reach.
    • Server transfer cooldowns increased from 7 to 30 days.
    • PvPers transferring to PvE with infamy will display the Outlaw circle upon first logging in. This is a graphical bug; no actual PvP will be allowed for that player. Logging out and back in will remove this circle.
    • PvPers trying to transfer to a PvE server with the Manual: Outlaw Declaration will find that manual to be unusable and not tradable.


  • The Champions’ Skyring (3v3) is now live! Please check out the details on ourChampions’ Skyring Game Guide page.
    • Your team can opt to play for practice or for rank. Or, as we call it, the schoolyard or the killing floor.
    • Ranked results affect both Bellicarium and the new Killing Spree reputation.
  • Fraywind Canyon
    • A notification message is now displayed when a BAM dies. Apparently, being crushed underneath it isn’t a clear enough message.
    • Offline users are now kicked from the team if they remain offline long enough.
    • A player’s HP/MP automatically replenishes upon entering/exiting Fraywind Canyon.
    • The desperate resolve buff has been modified.
      • It now activates at 1,300 points and deactivates at 500.
      • Power and Endurance now increase by 40 instead of 60.
      • It does not activate during the first 2,000 points scored. You weren’t that desperate, were you?
    • The powerful morale buff from the teralith has been modified.
      • Endurance now increases by 20 (instead of 40), and attack speed increases by 20% (instead of 30%).
    • Objects in spawn points now continually grant the clemency buff.
      • Buff makes you invincible and is granted at the base.
      • Buff lasts until you attack. If you don’t initiate combat, it lasts a minimum of 10 seconds—longer if you remain at the base. But only weaklings cower at the base!
    • An additional 80 points are added to winning team’s leader’s battleground score.
    • When you die, time left until resurrection is now displayed in green.
    • When you resurrect, the camera will point toward the base entrance, because we all know how disorienting death can be.
    • Kills now add 8 points to the total match score (was 5).
  • Rain of Arrows and Hail Storm visuals have been modified to more easily tell the difference between enemies’ and allies’ attacks. Apparently that’s important or something.

Quests and Factions

  • Several Lumbertown quests have changed.
    • Strife in Fey Forest: The spawn time for gatherables has changed to 10 seconds (down from 30 seconds), and gatherables have been moved closer to town. Gardeners and their free time…
    • Keeping the Quota: Gatherables are available at 10 nodes (was 19 nodes). The woodcutters are slacking even more than usual.
    • Faeries in a Fix: If you have not completed the quest, the quest has been reset and cancelled. Talk to NPC Verus to receive the quest again.
    • Other Fey Forest quests: Other quests have had minor changes. Receive quests from NPCs in Lumbertown if you have not already completed them.
  • New daily quests are available, and other changes have been made to daily quest rewards.
  • Two new factions offer daily quests.
    • Jax Trust
      • This “legitimate business owner” and his associates offer quests from Cutthroat Harbor.
      • Level 60 characters automatically get favorable reputation with Jax Trust. Beats waking up next to a horse’s head!
    • Unified Theory Institute
      • These scientists in Allemantheia seek to meld magic and technology.
      • Level 60 characters automatically get favorable reputation with the institute.
      • The institute offers the new Sheldon turtle mount reward for those with revered reputation and 10,000 gold. It’s turtles all the way down.
  • Killing Spree reputation has been added. Earn it by battling in Champions’ Skyring.
  • All daily quests reward 20% more gold.


  • Re-entry time has been cut in half for the following dungeons when using party matching:
    • Manaya’s Core (normal)
    • Argon Corpus (normal and hard)
    • Balder’s Temple (normal and hard)
  • The quest requirement for party matching in Kelsaik’s Nest has been removed. This one was Killian’s idea—something about “seriously, they need the practice.”

  • Argon Corpus
    • Reduced collisions with mesh railings near room entrances, and improved camera behavior near railings.
    • Fixed translucent effects of objects within the corpus.
  • Temple of Temerity
    • Increased dire badge rewards. Sadly, no increase in dire badgers.
    • Dire badges are now tradable.
    • Rewards are given when you kill the third named mob. No rewards when you name the third killed mob, though.
  • Crucible of Flame
    • The Crucible of Flame is now here! The gods wish to test you—will you answer the call?
