Upgrade Arcade Returns!

Come on, come all, to the Upgrade Arcade! With new prizes to be won, try your luck by upgrading an on-screen weapon to the next level.  At certain Upgrade Levels, you will unlock different prizes varying from Manastones to Omega Enchantment Stones to the exclusive Sleek Hovercycle mount!  Step right up!

– How to Play –

The Upgrade Arcade can be accessed by clicking the smiling Shugo icon on the lower right corner of your screen. Use this icon to play, browse the prize list, or check out the Help guide.

To play, you’ll need an Arcade Token. One Arcade Token is consumed each time you begin playing at level 1, and will last until you claim a prize. This means it’s possible for you to get to Upgrade Level 8 on one token!

Click Play to start the mini-game and you'll see the weapon on the screen change before you. Subsequently by clicking Play, you will continue to upgrade the weapon and the Upgrade Level. There is a chance to fail at each upgrade level so play wisely!If you want to claim your prize, click Reward and a random item from the tier's prize list will be placed in your inventory.

If your upgrade fails at Upgrade Level 6 or higher, you have two choices. You can claim your level 1 prize, or you can click the Resume option to spend two tokens and regain your place! The Resume icon lights up to let you know it can be used, but can only be used once per play.

As you play the Upgrade Arcade, you will notice the Frenzy Meter filling up. Every token you use to play or resume will fill up the bar. Once the bar is full, Frenzy Mode begins and you have 90 seconds of boosted upgrade chances and additional Frenzy Rewards! Click away!

– Rewards –

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away. Keep in mind that if your upgrade fails and you do not resume playing, through choice or lack of tokens, you will only get a prize from Upgrade Level 1.

TERA News – Final Beta Weeked Arrives

En Masse Entertainment has laid out the details of the final beta weekend. Starting today, Friday, April 6th and continuing through midnight Sunday, April 8th, the event will give players a last opportunity to try out and provide feedback for TERA prior to its May 1st launch.

In this last event, the Valkyon Federation, bolstered by a surge of new soldiers, strikes back at its foes, reestablishing control of troubled realms, and upsetting the meticulous plans of its enemies. In an effort to destabilize the federation and disrupt its momentum, Thulsa has decided to launch attacks at the relatively unprotected capital—Velika. The evil god is gathering a small army of monsters to fling them at the City of Wheels. The Mysterium's arcanists detected Thulsa's plans and alerted Fraya, who sent word to Velika. With little forewarning, will the federation be able to defend the city and thwart Thulsa's machinations? Be ready for a call to action in the evening hours of Friday and Saturday!

TERA News – Crafting Guide Released

En Masse Entertainment has announced that it has released a crafting guide for TERA fans to get their tools sharpened and set for the arrival of the game on May 1st.

Sometimes, waiting for that perfect drop just isn't as satisfying as it could be. That cool quest reward isn't enough to get you to the next fight, and you really don't feel like battling through a zone of skeletons without better protection.

What's an adventurer to do? In TERA, there are four ways to get better gear: find it, earn it, make it, or buy it. In the example above, the first two options clearly aren't cutting it, so let's examine what exactly is involved in making gear.

Check out the entire guide on the TERA site.

TERA News – Sinister Argons

En Masse Entertainment has released updated information about the Argons, the warlords of TERA. One of the most prevalent foms of Argon is the Gilgash. Massive, powerful, and heavily armored, gilgashes act as generals on the battlefield.

When the argons burst from the ground and launched their invasion on Northern Shara, no one expected they’d obliterate their opposition so easily. The blue-black creatures swept through Val Kaeli, and then the Helkan District, before swallowing up Val Tirkai. No unit could withstand the power of these dark forces. A veritable sea of black and blue crushed all organized resistance across Northern Shara, seemingly unstoppable. Insidious swarms of smaller argons wreaked havoc, but it was the argon behemoths—their battlemasters—that struck fear into the hearts of soldiers. Each massive argon fought with the strength of an entire company, cleaving through battle formations and leaving nothing but broken bodies in its wake. In a matter of weeks, the argons controlled nearly half the continent and marched toward the amani capital city—Kaiator.
