TERA News – Playing Outside North America

The TERA site has been updated with new information for players outside of North America and their ability to play on En Masse servers. According to the post, IPs from Asia, Africa, Russia, and the Middle East will be blocked due to "the vast majority of Internet traffic we see from these regions are from cyber-criminals relating to account theft, gold-farming and other hacking behavior."

What's your reaction to the IP blocking?

TERA News – Dungeon Finder Coming on Release

The En Masse Entertainment blog for TERA has been updated with a new article entitled "New Launch Features: New and Better Dungeons". In it, the team details how the dungeon finder system in TERA will work for players of all types and levels.

Our new instance dungeon matcher helps you find the right healer, tank, or damage-dealer, gives you significant bonuses (depending on your role) for grouping, and even sends you extra rewards when the last boss falls. Speaking of rewards, you'll now see increased drops in all dungeons–up to double and triple the rates you've seen in past betas. Do your part, and you might be the proud owner of a Raiment of Nezrakul, Cauterus Axe, or Skysplitter's Bow.

Best of all, we added new dungeons and redesigned others so there's always some high-octane dungeon action available.

Dragon Nest News – Cash Shop Opens & New High Level Dungeon

Nexon has announced that the cash shop and a new high-level dungeon for Dragon Nest have been added to the game as the North American open beta continues. Players will be able to use "scales", or the in-game currency, that they have earned during the open beta to purchase items from the Dragon Vault (in-game shop).

With today’s launch of the Dragon Vault, a wide variety of cosmetic and convenience items are now available for players to purchase, including: Adventurer’s Bags, Scrolls of Unlearning and a wide assortment of costume items. The Adventurer’s Bag expands a player’s inventory space, and the Scroll of Unlearning allows players to redesign their skill trees by resetting skill points. The costume packages are yet another way for characters to differentiate their avatar from the crowd. Additionally, seasoned players can now test their mettle in the Minotaur’s Nest encounter, a challenging boss fight that promises enviable rewards for the brave adventures who can defeat the mighty Minotaur.
