Nobody panic, but TERA PC server merges are on the way. If you’ve followed the MMORPG closely enough, you already knew about this previously, but now we have some more specifics to share with you thanks to an email we’ve received.
Merges will be taking place on Tuesday, September 16th. There will be a total of three servers for the MMO after that point; Mount Tyrannas and Fey Forest servers will merge into the new PvP server, Ascension Valley and Tempest Reach will merge into the new PvE server, and Celestial Hills will remain as a PvE RP server. Fans will get a chance to help the devs name these new servers through voting, which will be detailed at a later time.
If you’ve got a preference for what type of server you’d like your characters to land on, free character transfers between server types will be opened between September 4th and 17th. Beyond that, players won’t have to do anything else ahead of the merge – all characters, guilds and friend lists will be transferred over.
There will be a limit on how many characters can be put into one server, however En Masse will be handing out additional character slot coupons for those with characters on multiple servers. Players can expect those coupons between September 11th and 17th.
More information and an FAQ can be found on this website.
Sounds like a generally painless affair, all things considered, and the free transfers and character slot coupon offers are very generous indeed. Here’s hoping these merges do indeed bring more players together as they’re intended to.
