TERA - Skyreach_New Heights - Key Art

The "Skywatch: New Heights" content update for the PC version of TERA was released today. This update for the ongoing MMORPG adds in new challenges for players of all skill levels and increases the level cap to 70 for veterans looking to grow that much stronger.

Those that are at level 65 will be able to get their journey to 70 started with "The Nightmare Begins" quest chain. There are now also some things called Field BAMs. BAMs (Big-Ass Monsters) were already a thing, but these Field BAMs are brand new. They are larger than regular BAMs, spawn randomly throughout the world, and will reward all players that help to down one of them with some experience and loot.

There is a lot more to this update than just this. Take it away, press release!

There’s more to “Skywatch: New Heights” than just gaining levels; the update also introduces the Skill Advancement and Gear Fusion systems for additional character customization.

Skill Advancement uses experience items earned from downing Field BAMs, Vanguard Requests and other sources to gradually improve a skill’s performance, with player’s eventually unlocking up to three alternate versions of select skills. These new skill versions can be freely changed any time players are out of combat, allowing them to tailor skills to suit a diverse array of challenges.

The Gear Fusion system allows players to combine two pieces of gear together, consuming one of the items and granting additional stats to the other. Additionally, once players hit level 66 they unlock two new gear slots—for Halidoms and Relics infused with the power of the gods!

Rounding out the update, the dungeons of TERA have received a considerable overhaul in response to player feedback. Instead of limited number of daily entries, characters now receive a weekly supply of Adventure Coins to enter dungeons. The cost to enter a dungeon scales based its difficulty, and Adventure Coins regenerate whether or not a player is online, granting them more flexibility on how they spend them and when.

This update also includes 7-player variants of Antaroth’s Abyss, Grotto of Lost Souls, and Dark Reach Citadel; as well as solo variants of Bastion of Lok, Sinestral Manor, and Cultists’ Refuge. Additionally, all level 20-60 dungeons have been rebalanced for 3 players of any class, removing the matching requirements for tanks and healers.

“Skyreach: New Heights” lays the foundation for TERA updates on PC throughout this year, with more content, features, and systems to be released in the coming months.
