En Masse Entertainment today has released The Guilded Age, the latest update for action MMORPG, TERA. The update focuses on adding new features for guilds, including a progression system complete with guild-wide skills to unlock. Players can put their guild skills to use in a new weekly event that pits guilds against each other for control over the capital city of Velika.
Guilds interested in demonstrating their prowess can participate in the new weekly guild battle, Civil Unrest: Velika. To prepare, guilds construct their own guild tower within a designated zone surrounding the capital city of Velika. During the event, which occurs weekly on Saturdays at 7PM PT, guilds will face-off in battle, aiming to destroy the towers of other guilds while protecting their own.
The guild with the last tower standing will be crowned the victor, earning their guild a jackpot of taxes collected from all merchant NPC transactions over the previous week. An overhaul for all classes is also teased, starting with the sorcerer class as part of the upcoming ‘Spellbound’ update later this year. This will mark the first in a series of class revamps to continue through 2017.
