MMOs don’t follow the birthday celebration code like everyone else.. Usually birthday celebrations are a time for us to give things to the celebrant, but in the case of MMOs, it is a time where we get things from it. Where are our manners!?
In the case of TERA, players are getting a full months worth of celebrations starting with the Loading Memories event which lasts until May 13th and is a chance for players to have one of their fan art pieces etched forever into the game’s sea of official loading screens. Starting tomorrow May 3rd till the 6th players will also find double the loot drops in any of the game’s dungeons.
In total there are three other major upcoming events including the introduction of the Kelsaik’s dungeon Raid on May 14th, which according to a TERA blog post requires “10 or 20” party members to tackle.
Beyond this month’s celebrations there is talk of a new 20 vs. 20 battleground set to arrive in June which involves riding blimps, assaulting castles and raining down cannon balls on unsuspecting enemies. There is also talk of a new alliance system which adds summoned BAMs, an alliance specific training zone, and the ability to lead raids into enemy alliance territory in order to steal their resources. Anything that encourages open world PvP is ok in my books.
