Publisher Gameforge wants to set the benchmark with a new update for the game TERA. There is going to be a war across continents between the regions Velika, Allemantheia and Kaiator. Depending on which of those three alliances is chosen, one is able to change the balance of power towards the corresponding region. The purpose for all of this is to gather a valuable mineral called Noktenium, because it gives incredibly great power to its owner.
Of course, every alliance or region is interested in this mineral and everyone tries to get in possession of it. What's furthermore interesting are the benefits coming with this update: the winning alliance has the chance to use a dungeon just for them and to change the conquered world according to anyone's ideas.
Each of those alliances enjoys certain basic advantages - gamers from Velika gain more gold when killing monsters in PvE, the ones from region Allemantheia get more reputation coins and - last but not least - those who decided for Kaiator have higher resistances against stun effects.
It comes up to you to choose a region and to fight for it in the new alliance system.
