    Solo Dungeons

    • Solo dungeons have been added to leveling zones.
    • Bastion of Lok (5-minute cooldown)
    • Sinestral Manor (5-minute cooldown)
    • Cultists’ Refugee (5-minute cooldown)
    • Necromancer Tomb (5-minute cooldown)
    • Golden Labyrinth (5-minute cooldown)
    • Ebon Tower (1-hour cooldown)
    • Multiple completion routes are available for each dungeon.
    • The completion route variants are marked with different colors on the mini map.
    • A random completion route is assigned to the player upon entry.
    • The player can only move within the given route.
    • If killed, the player is resurrected at the start of the assigned dungeon route.
    • Dungeon cooldown timer starts at the time of entry.
    • The dungeons can accommodate up to a three-player party.
    • Normal monsters in the dungeon drop health restoration motes.
    • Reduced boss monsters’ HP.


    New Stuff

    • Added inventory filters.
    • The filters sort and highlight items in your current inventory.
    • All: Displays the default view of your inventory.

    • Misc.: Highlights items that do not belong to any of the above filters.
    • You can still manually sort your items under the All filter. Using other filters will not alter the default All item view of the inventory. You can use any filters without worrying about the filters resorting your default inventory.
    • Items cannot be manually moved while other filters are in use.
    • Hands of Velika faction has changed.

    Hooray for more single player content and drive to socialize less with other people.

    I like the solo dungeon idea, personally I prefer farming alone as it's much more efficient and less stressful that way since there's no one there to rush you. Still, that's not good enough to make me want to go back to Tera.

    Meh. You could pretty much solo the team dungeons already. What I want is the new class...

    I do like to Solo, relying on other people is just waste of time and energy, because you know 99% of the time someone ****s up the party, by leaving mid run, someone gets themselfs killed... or wipes the party...

    Playing with friends or people you know that's a different story.

    Solo-viability let's you play the game at your own pace without being forced to rely on other people to progress. It's especially evident in end game when often times you just sit around because you can't find a (good) party, I'm not saying all games are like that but it's certainly a problem in many party focused MMOs. No guild, no end game.

    Secondly who said doing dungeons is the ONLY way to socialize...there are other options like PvP, Trading, hanging out in towns or simply using a voice chat with your friends, you don't have to do the same thing to enjoy someone's company, especially in modern times. No one is forcing anyone to play solo, it's just an option for those who prefer it and believe me there are many people who enjoy solo dungeons, myself included.

    As someone who is well-versed in the experience of TERA.

    The game is all about end-game, and everyone has already gotten there. Leveling is a major pain because you can never do dungeons until now. Adding this makes the experience way more friendly to new players, and way more welcoming to older players who want to start over/make an alt.

    Personally, I feel the devs should incorperate stuff that makes people want to experience mid game again, but TERA has sort of gotten settled with its fanbase, and everyone finds a way to rush to end-game anyway, so I guess I can see why they just added solo dungeons.

    I mean, their new class is only for like level 40 players, and getting to level 40 alone takes a while unless you have nothing to do for a week.
