A news announcement and a related video have appeared on Tera: Fate of Arun’s official website and YouTube channel to illustrate the changes that will be made to the game when the newest patch goes live, between today and the end of this week. Patch 30.09 includes a nice list of updates to the game, with one of the prominent features being the possibility, for guilds, to create Sky Castles. Customizable abodes hovering over two of the games major cities, the Sky Castles are part of Tera: Fate of Arun’s new guild housing system, which allows guild to find a base and expand it to receive a variety of bonuses from it.
Guilds can compete for these Sky Castles through a new competitive system known as the crusades. Guilds can decide to join either a PvP or PvE oriented competition that lasts for a period of four weeks. Based on the kind of competition they joined, guilds will gain score and increase their ranks by completing different tasks such as dungeons, achievements or PvP events. Once the Crusade season ends, the top 10 guilds in each league earn one of these palaces for the duration of the next crusade. Guild Leaders can then spend their clan’s prestige points in order to customize and expand these castle by increasing the number of NPCs they can host, their size and the effects they have on the members of the owning clan.
Besides Sky Castles and Crusades, Tera: Fate of Arun’s latest patch also introduces new end-game content. New dungeons will be added for players to explore. Changes to the gathering and crafting system, as well as to the Guilds VS Guilds, Battlegrounds, and Awakening system have been introduced along with some class related and miscellaneous modification to the gameplay. A full changelog for this patch can be found on Tera: Fate of Arun’s official website.
