    Welcome to the site! :-)

    Before you ask your question, have you checked the 2 pages of Tera guides we have on various topics? We create 1-5 new Tera guides a week.

    http://www.cleartechinfo.com/category/tutorials/computer-gaming

    http://www.cleartechinfo.com/category/tutorials/computer-gaming/page/2

    So you checked the 2 Tera tutorial pages above and didn’t see anything that could help. Not a problem, just ask your Tera Online question below and I will do my best to answer. I have been playing Tera since 2013 so I know a decent amount of info about the game.

    Btw, I don’t know everything and still have questions about the game I ask my Tera friends on occasion. So if you are a veteran Tera player and have a question, don’t be shy to ask 😎

    A YouTube user asked if I could write a summary of all the things you need to do in Tera after you hit max level 65. So I took some time to write up a mini guide. This topic is on my list of Tera video tutorials to create but until then everyone can checkout this guide I created below. If you have been playing Tera for a while and see I missed something please feel free to add to this mini guide by replying below.

    What To Do After I Hit Level 65 in Tera? aka I’m Level 65, Now What?

    * Be sure to fully complete the level 60+65 story quest and at least 1 Sabex Armory dungeon run by the time you hit level 65.
    – Why do this? After completing the above tasks you will receive a full level 65 starter gear set in the mail called “Idoneal”. Idoneal gear is pretty decent and good to have until you are able to farm higher level gear.

    * Run lvl 61+ “Sabex Armory” & lvl 64+ “Macellarius Catacombs” dungeons 1x per day for Glyph boxes, UNTIL you unlock all of your Glyphs
    – Why do this? These 2 dungeons are guaranteed to drop several free Glyph boxes 1x/day. Glyphs enhance your skill abilities (hit harder in PvP,/PvE, reduce cooldowns, enhance healing, etc).

    * From level 60+ always do Vanguard Initiative dailies, every day. Never stop.
    – Why do this? After completing each Vanguard Initiative daily, you receive “Vanguard Initiative Credits”. Vanguard Initiative Credits are used to purchase endgame crystals aka “Niveots” for PvE and PvP. They are also used to purchase “Masterwork Alkahest Boxes”. Niveots and Masterwork Alkahest boxes are tradable so besides using the items for yourself you can also sell them on the trade broker. You will also receive feedstock for completing most dailies. Feedstock is very important material you will need for higher end gear no matter if you are PvP or PvE.

    * Join a guild. If you are not already part of a guild join one of the placeholder “Enlightened Union” guilds. You auto-join them.
    – Why do this? Being part of one of the Enlightened Union guilds or a guild that is part of the Enlightened Union Alliance gives you a permanent buff that increases your Vanguard Initiative (also PvP battleground) credits by 5%. 5% might not be much but it does add up and is worth it.

    * Buy all the proper endgame PvE and/or PvP Niveots / Vysks from the Vanguard Initiative vendor.
    – Why do this? People forming PvE dungeon and PvP battleground parties will only allow you to join if you have the proper crystal setup. If not you will be bringing down the effectiveness of their group (not enough dps, not enough healing, not enough tank aggro).

    _____Proper PvE crystal setup for Dungeons_____
    –DPS–
    Weapon: Bitter, Savage, Focused, and Carving/Pounding/Forceful
    Chest: Fine Hardy Niveot x4
    Earrings / Rings: Carving or Powerful Vyrsks x4

    –TANK—
    Weapon: Fine Threatening Niveot x4 (Can sub 1 Threatening for a Fine Focused)
    Chest: Chest: Fine Hardy Niveot x4
    Earrings / Rings: Threatening Vyrsk x4

    — HEALER –
    Weapon: Fine Swift Niveot, Fine Brilliant Niveot x3 (Can sub 1 Brilliant for a Fine Carving)
    Chest: Chest: Fine Hardy Niveot x4 (Can sub 1 Hardy for a Fine Fleetfoot)
    Earrings / Rings: Succoring Vysrk x4

    _____Proper PvP crystal setup for Battlegrounds_____
    — DPS —
    Weapon: Savage, Forceful and 2 of the following Carving/Swift/Brutal/Cruel
    Chest: Fine Relentless Niveot x4
    Earrings / Rings Pristine Griefing Zyrkx4 (buying these from the trade broker is the fastest/easiest way to get these)

    — HEALER —
    Weapon: Fine Swift Niveot, Fine Brilliant Niveot x3 (Can sub 1 Brilliant for a Fine Carving)
    Chest: Fine Relentless Niveot x4 (Can sub 1 Relentless for a Fine Fleetfoot)
    Earrings / Rings: Grounding, Swift Vysrk or Succoring x4 (Grounding if you are having trouble staying alive, Swift to get off your heal animations faster, Succoring to increase healing)

    — DPS for CHAMPIONS SKYRING which does not allow charms or pots –
    Weapon: Fine Salivating Niveot x1 (Replenishes mana)
    Chest: Fine Grieving Niveot x1 (Replenishes mana)
    ** If you are a Healer and have mana problems use the same Niveots above

    * Run the Alliance Vault as many times as you can per day. Solo vault has a 2 hour cooldown. 5 man vault does not have any cooldown but you must have a to enter each time. You can stop running Alliance Vault once you have all of your jewelry, Brooch and Renegade belt.
    – Why do this? Solo & 5-man Alliance Vaults drop level 65 rings and earrings (Idoneal rings/earrings are level 64). You need these level 65 rings and earrings to equip level 65 jewlery crystals aka “Vyrsk”. These vaults also drop Renegade belts and Brooches (more gear to increase your stats)

    * Run the Dungeon Ravenous Gorge 4x/day. Does not matter if you are PvE or PvP.
    – Why do this? Running this dungeon will not only give you Vanguard Initiative credits for each completed pass but that is not the most important reason to run this dungeon. You will receive feedstock during the run and feedstock as a Vanguard Initiative reward daily quest reward. This is the primary method I farm feedstock.

    * Once you get all of the Niveots you need from the Vanguard Initiative vendor, keep on accumulating credits. But be aware that it caps at 9,000. So when you hit around 8,500 credits I recommend buying some extra Niveots and/or Master Alkahest Boxes and sell them on the broker. Use the gold you earn to purchase Master Enigmatic Scrolls or Blessed Enigmatic Scrolls. But don’t go too crazy, you will need the credits to buy lots and lots of Masterwork Alkahest boxes.

    *-*-*-*- What are Masterwork Alkahest, Feedstock and Master/Blessed Enigmatic scrolls so important??? *-*-*-*-
    When getting endgame PvE/PvP gear or the tier right below it, you are going to want to “enchant” it. Enchanting your gear brings out more stats and also raises the stats, so you hit your skills harder and are tougher to kill. But to enchant your gear you will need Masterwork Alkahest, Feedstock and Master/Blessed Enigmatic scrolls.

    A YouTube user asked if there is any way to purchase Tera EMP with Steam. Yes, you can purchase EMP with Steam Wallet if you installed Tera via Steam.

    To Buy EMP via Steam Wallet:
    Step 1: Log into Tera, play any of your toons
    Step 2: Go into the in-game EMP Store.
    Step 3: While in the in-game EMP store, on the bottom you will see an option to “Buy EMP”, click that
    Step 4: Just follow the on-screen instructions to buy EMP and select the Steam Wallet option for method of payment

    Everyone Please Note: This only works if you installed Tera via Steam or have Tera connected to your Steam account. If you are like me and have Steam and Tera but installed Tera via the Tera site, it will not work.

    A YouTube user asks…
    How do you level your characters? You do the story quests, dungeons, power lvling?? Can you tell me the fastest way??

    ANSWER:
    When I was a nub in 2013, the first 2 toons I leveled were Slayer and Warrior. I wanted to experience everything Tera had to offer, so I did all storyline quests and some regular quests. I also did all dungeons.

    After 2 toons I was tired of questing and dungeons all the time. So I powerleveled all of my toons from #3 to my current lowbies, Zerker and Priest.

    For powerleveling here is what I do..

    Start off at level 1 by completing every quest in the newbie area. Then continue to Velika and complete every quest there. There is 1 Velika quest that is very important since it expands your bag inventory. You can also further expand your inventory on the spot by purchasing extra rows, with the same NPC as the inventory quest.

    – Then head off to Lumbertown (a Velika quest should point you there) and farm “Warthogs” or whatever they are called. Do this until level 14.

    – At level 14 go South of Cresentia and farm “Ravenous Hyenas”. Do this until level 20.

    – At level 20 run the first dungeon “Bastion of Lok” 3 times. While you are waiting in que for the dungeon, farm “Basilisks” in “Oblivion Woods”. This is the area where the BoL dungeon portal is.

    -+- From there follow this guide. It is not mine, but it is a good one to follow: http://j.mp/Tera-plvl

    -+- Do this until level 60. At level 60 look in your bag. It will give you a scroll that teleports you to Velika outskirts, near some docks. Follow that storyline quest to level 65.

    Side Notes:
    – You can do MOB and/or BAM grinding. I do both. Sometimes I get tired of MOBs, so I do BAMs and vice versa.
    – When you are waiting for a dungeon que to pop, do something productive and farm mobs or BAMs. Never AFK while waiting for ques to pop since sometimes they never do or they could take an hour if you are a dps.
    – I do dungeons while plvling for 3 reasons…
    #1 they drop free Armor that you need (hands, feet and chest). The best weapons are the Avatar weapons you will acquire avatar tokens/credits to get a free avatar weapon every few levels when killing mobs, bams and creatures inside dungeons.
    #2 The first 2-3 passes in dungeons give you a LOT of XP
    #3 Sometimes I get bored powerleveling on my own. So I join dungeons to take a break and be part of a group.
