MANAHAN – THE EVENT SERVER
This unique new event server offers up an entirely new TERA experience! Opening its doors on 12th December, “Manahan” will be available for just a few short weeks until roughly mid-January, when we update the servers to patch 64. During this time, the influence of the fallen god on the dream will be palpable, providing you with an exciting alternative reality to explore on this special server:
Even more reasons to join Manahan:
Every TERA player is free to create a new character on Manahan. Please bear in mind:
It is only a matter of time before Arun and Shara manage to banish Manahan to the condescension of oblivion once more. Use this opportunity on the event server to round out your gear!
And that’s not all! TERA Club members can look forward to even more benefits:
Manahan also offers new impetus for PvP fans. In addition to the extra item XP in quests, we also have these changes lined up:
Whatever your playing style, you should be able to take advantage of these changes and put together the gear you need to take on Manahan’s many challenges in no time.
Manahan’s influence seeps through the dream, manifesting itself in epic PvE challenges. Tons of instances come in a tougher flavor, while even the open world has changed! Bosses in Manahan’s level 60+ dungeons have a higher attack speed, plus additional stat boosts depending on the dungeon:
Manahan’s PvE challenges aren’t only limited to dungeons, there’s also plenty of hot action to be had out in the open world:
Not even your pets are safe from Manahan’s chaotic energy, and will now provide an effect when summoned. More details can be found in this overview.
Out in the snowy depths of Westonia, the gates to this icy tower have been frozen solid for a long time. But that which was held fast in an icy prison now returns to life in answer to Manahan’s summons. Will you flee in terror? Or stand once more unto the breach of dread?
It was Manahan’s power that broke the icy seal, but the Dreadspire will return to life on all servers. Enter the dungeon using the Teleportal or Matchmaking System, and steel yourself for extreme dread:
This is just a rough sweep of the terrifying changes to this dungeon. Alongside other adjustments which include increased power and health, the fiends in the Dreadspire make this the toughest challenge to be found in TERA!
But mighty deeds deserve mighty rewards! In addition to the chest which you can choose at the end, each boss will also drop loot for you.
Fight your way to the top! We’ve got amazing reward chests lined up for you when you reach various milestones on Manahan, giving you extra loot either on the event server or other servers:
On reaching level 65 you also receive a character transfer voucher to the regular servers. You can use this voucher to transfer your character and all their loot from Manahan to your main server. More details can be found on the relevant info page.
Huh, easier and yet more difficult? How does that work? Well your path to level 65 will be an entirely new experience. While all class stats have been slightly tweaked and the required experience points increased, the first couple of dungeon encounters will be extremely quick thanks to Kaia’s help! These stats have been changed:
Similar to the introduction of new classes, you can rely on the support of the League of Levelers in the event of the same name, and ultimately collect equipment items in reward. However, these event rewards can only be received by one of your max. two Manahan characters.
Leveling up guilds has been heavily modified to make it easier to access the higher guild skills.
Some serious changes are awaiting you in PvP! We’re reshuffling the selection of battlegrounds, adding new functions and mixing things up with different player numbers.
There are also changes to the weekly guild war:
Remember that the standard number of players in a guild is limited to 30.
Manahan will be open as an event server for a few weeks and then closed again at the end of the event. All players who reach level 65 with a character on Manahan will receive a free transfer to a server of their choice at the end of the event. It is not possible to transfer characters to or from Manahan during the event itself.
Details on the transfer at the end of the event:
Seven days before Manahan closes, we’ll provide you with full details regarding the transfers. Transfers to existing servers will be made available 5 days before closure. Since we will delete certain items which cannot be transferred to other servers at this time, all events and special settings will be deactivated from this date.
You can continue to log into Manahan and prepare your character for the transfer during the 5 days until the end of the event (leaving your guild, collecting your mail, emptying the brokers etc.). The event server will no longer be accessible once patch 64 is released. However as long as all preconditions have been met, you may still transfer characters.
GENERALCan any player take part in this event?
Yes! Every TERA player is more than welcome to join the fun on Manahan!
Please remember, however, that we will only launch one event server. Each TERA server has a limited capacity which may lead to character creation being restricted once a certain threshold has been met. It is conceivable that at some point, it will not be possible to join the event server with new accounts.Will the group matching be cross-server?
Given the large number of changes to instances and battlegrounds, the automated group matching will only search on Manahan. This means you will not be able to play with players from regular servers while you are on Manahan.How can I send you my feedback?
We’ve created a special section in the forum for all discussions relating to Manahan. We’re really interested in hearing your opinions about this event, so please come by and tell us what you liked or what didn’t work very well!
CHARACTER TRANSFERSWhen will you announce the closing date?
Manahan will be closed with the release of patch 64. The exact date for this update has not yet been decided, but should be around the middle of January. We will inform you in due course about when it will be possible to transfer characters from Manahan to the regular servers. You can find the provisional time plan under the heading Transfers.Will you delete all items from Manahan?
No, you get to keep everything you have learned or equipped. However, since Manahan’s economy will differ greatly to those on the other servers, we will delete a small selection of items from your inventory before the transfer. This includes any unlearned glyphs. We’ll publish a detailed list of all items to be deleted before the transfer date.Can I transfer more than one character?
All players who reach level 65 will receive a single free transfer. If you wish to transfer another character, you’ll need a Character Transfer Voucher from the TERA Shop.What happens to items I purchased in the TERA Shop?
All items which were purchased from the TERA Shop in Manahan can be transferred to a regular server together with your character.
REWARDSDo I receive my rewards immediately upon reaching the milestones?
You get your rewards chests for completing all instances 5 times or all battlegrounds 10 times via special insignia. Similarly the chests for reaching level 65, plus all daily rewards can be collected in the game.
Rewards which aren’t automatically delivered in game but must be assessed by us may potentially take a little while to be delivered. This applies to the rewards for the first group to complete the dungeons, plus the top 3 players ranked in the battlegrounds each week.Why can’t I have another chest in my inventory?
Certain chests are limited to one instance in your inventory, while some cannot be stored in the bank. Similarly, there are also some chests which cannot be opened while you are in Manahan. These rewards will be usable only once you have transferred to a regular server.
HELP & SUPPORTI need help! Can the Support team help me?
Our Support team will of course be on hand to help you with problems on the event server. Please note however that the settings on Manahan are somewhat experimental and we cannot provide complete support for everything.Can I have more than 2 character slots, e.g. as a veteran or if I purchase a Character Transfer Voucher?
All account types have 2 character slots on Manahan. The number of slots cannot be expanded, even if you have veteran status on the regular servers.
OTHER QUESTIONSWhy can’t I kill Kelsaik?
Kelsaik can only be defeated in the open world during periods when Kaia lends you her support. Find out more under the heading PvE.I was really strong during my first two instance runs, but not any more. What happened?

Yes, the TERA Shop will also be available on Manahan. However, it may be the case that certain items are unavailable or only in an altered form.Is my home server going to empty because everyone is playing on Manahan?
Manahan is a limited event server, it will not replace the existing servers. There will also be various events running on the regular servers so that players who aren’t interested in the experimental settings on Manahan still have a great time in TERA.Why are the descriptions for 30v30 and other settings incorrect?
Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to change the text descriptions for Manahan as an individual server. Please note that as a result, certain descriptions in the game will not reflect Manahan’s unique settings.
