TERA News – Dracoloth Sovereign Invasion Event Detailed

According to a short and sweet post on the En Masse Entertainment TERA page, a new in-game event will kick off on March 20th. Called Dracoloth Sovereign Invasion, the dracoloths are too large for a single player to take down alone, necessitating the formation of groups.

With the rise in players, we’ve seen a rise in dracoloths around the world of TERA. They’re too big to handle alone, so collect some friendly fighters and head out to find them. They could be anywhere—but they’re dracoloths, so they’re not exactly inconspicuous.

Corpse camping won’t work on these things, though—once they’re down, they’re down for good.

Dracoloth Sovereign Invasion: March 20–24

Location: Wouldn’t you like to know…
