The latest update to the fantasy MMO TERA from Gameforge and developers Bluehole invites players to discover the world of fishing. In build 77, players can cast their lines in six different locations and attempt to land one of the 42 different species of fish. Just as in real life, a fishing rod and bait are the standard weapons in the fisherman’s arsenal. Both tools can be found in different versions and can even be upgraded: the more sophisticated the rod and bait, the better the fish in the haul. Players looking for a relaxing pursuit can have their characters fish automatically, but the biggest and best fish can only be landed in manual mode.
Satisfied with the size of their catch, players have a number of options for what they can do with their fish. One option is to sell them to merchants, generally a wise choice before the fish go off. Another option is to try out the newly available cooking ability and use the nutritious fish together with other foodstuffs as the basis for tasty meals. Ambitious fishers can also take advantage of a variety of upgrades in the form of recipes and special bait.
The new update brings further improvements to all existing crafting occupations. Obsolete alchemy formulas have been removed, for example, while in exchange alchemists can brew up some of the latest potions, such as the Rejuvenation Potion, as well as dyes and special reagents for achieving critical successes. Weaponcrafting, armorcrafting and etching have also been improved.
Meanwhile, the gathering system has been reworked, with obsolete items being replaced with newly added materials, and special tools added to improve gathering speed.
Special Event Dungeon
A newly activate event zone adds a very special flavor to this update. In the Batu Desert, players find a multiplayer dungeon which publisher Gameforge has filled with monsters. The Batu Desert brims with danger, providing an exclusive experience to 5 to 30 treasure hunters.
Detailed information on all the improvements can be found in the patch notes.
