TERA Merging Servers
During the Fall Producer Letter it was announced that Tera would be merging servers on September 18th. So, what do players need to do? Getting rid of your extra characters is a start. You’ll only be able to have 8 so its recommended you pick your favorite. Redeem any Level 60 Reward Scrolls. Make sure your guild has more than two active members. And finally remove anything you have listed in the auction house. They aren’t sure yet how long it will take but more information will be coming.
The Secret World Lairs Get An Update
In certain zones in the The Secret World there are small pockets of monsters who are far, far above the ability level of the people playing through the content there. A few brave souls have risked wandering in just to snoop but largely they’re unattractive and forgotten by the time players get up to a high enough ability to go in. That is about to change. These lairs are now meant for groups of 5, if they’re far from resurrection points new ones have been created and there is now a loot progression system in place. This is coming up in update 1.2 which is expected this week.
