TERA – Update Adds New Battleground, Reworked Instances and Wardrobe to Arborea
Karlsruhe, 8/7/2016 – Gameforge and developers Bluehole are releasing a new update for TERA which introduces a raft of new contents. Brand-new storage space is available in the form of the Wardrobe, giving players a place to store costumes and accessories they don’t currently need. A new madcap battleground, Kumas Royale, is making an appearance, while more dungeons such as Manglemire and the returning Dreadspire will put five heroes through their paces.

Using the code Crazy2016 there’s also a special bonus bundle available containing various items, including the permanent White Afro Duck mount.

More information on the update can be found in the new trailer:

The Adventure Begins – Sandpit Battleground and More Dungeons

In the PvP battleground Kumas Royale, players slip into the role of baby kumases, one of Arborea’s larger-boned races. The teams must attempt to earn victory over three rounds by hunting down and eliminating their opponents’ Boss Kumas, similarly controlled by a player. Players have a wide variety of tongue-in-cheek skills at their command, such as the Rage-Flop which deals damage to all enemies within a certain range.

A short teaser of kumases in action on the new battleground can be found in this trailer:
Players pining for more PvE action will find what they’re looking for in the two reworked challenge dungeons Golden Labyrinth and Akasha's Hideout. When entering these level 65 solo instances, players can choose one or two modes in the form of specific challenges which add a special twist. 

Heroes who prefer more cooperative play are sure to find something to satisfy them in Manglemire or the newly reintroduced Dreadspire. In Manglemire everything revolves around truth and lies in the battle against the clown Manglemore; only players who are able to see through his lies will live to tell the tale. Meanwhile, things get increasingly serious ascending the Dreadspire, as the difficulty ramps up with each and every one of its 22 floors. The closer players get to the top of the tower, the more challenging the bosses become.

The Wardrobe – Fashion Storage

The range of fashion options in TERA is virtually limitless. But what do you do with all those accessories you don’t need right now? That’s where the new Wardrobe, accessible via the banker, comes to the fore. This latest addition offers 72 slots for head, face, back and hair accessories, as well as costumes and weapon skins. To make it easier to find the manager, symbols which were previously only used on the world map to indicate NPC professions can be found floating directly above NPCs’ heads with the new patch.
