SEATTLE, January 15, 2019 — En Masse Entertainment today launched “Shore Hold,” the first content update of 2019 in the PC version of TERA, their flagship, True Action Combat MMORPG. Players can jump into a new 7v7 PvP battleground, Shore Hold, which features shorter resurrection times, buff-generating mana stones, and other exciting features set to shake up TERA’s PvP landscape. This update also brings three new PvP gear sets, a solo PvE Training Ground complete with a DPS meter to allow players to test out new gear and ability rotations, the return of the Shadow Sanguinary dungeon, and more.

The Shore Hold battleground is built to get players into the action immediately. There are two main objectives in the Shore Hold battleground: capture pyres and fight a cave-dwelling monster. Both goals force players to plan ahead, react quickly, and manage their time well, as spending too much time focusing on one objective leaves others vulnerable.

This update’s changes to PvP gear acquisition now allow players to use new Bellicarium credits to acquire three different types of gear: Disciplinary, Harmonic, and Impregnable. Although this new gear does not use equipment crystals or produce set bonuses, it features unique PvP-only enchantment effects, including enemy stat reduction, damage reflection, slowing effects and more. These new items can make or break a battle, so customizing loadouts with this new gear is a must.

Players can also checkout a brand new solo instance, the Training Ground. Complete with a new DPS meter, the Training Ground lets players reset fights to adjust or change gear, supplies them with virtual thralls, and allows for a collection of buffs to simulate an active party, all to create an effective personal training session for either solo or group play. Players must be level-65 to start a solo instance in a private vault, and they can enter by approaching Whurloc in Highwatch.

The update also sees the return of the Shadow Sanguinary dungeon with updated rewards, as well as some major class balance adjustments.
