The month of October is upon it, full of spooky nights, winding corn mazes, and pumpkin spice everything. For this month’s MMOCO column, we’ll be looking at upcoming updates for TERA, FFXIV, and SWTOR.
TERA Gets New Aerial Island Event This Week
The Aerial Island event, dropping on October 15th, will introduce a new land mass (the Exodor Archipelago), a Card Collection system, a new Dungeon (Akalath Quarantine), and new gear. Getting to Exodor is easy: look for Ryshan at the Amadjuak Trading Post in Spring Valley and he’ll give you a quest entitled “the Way to Exodor.” Exodor will feature new content (quests, BAMs, and a solo dungeon questline) for those looking for open-world and solo fare, while the Akalath Quarantine dungeon will provide group content for five level 69 characters who have an iLevel of 458.
For those looking for less traditional MMO aspects, Aerial Island will also introduce collectible cards. Players can start their collection as soon as they leave Velika (the human Capital city) at level 11. It takes 20 fragments to complete a card and these fragments can be sold or traded. Each completed card will grant new bonuses and abilities for all a player’s characters on the same server. You can check out all the details in the video below:
