En Masse community manager Catherine "Minea" Park has published a new post on TERA's official website. The letter serves as a recap for the game's 2012 updates as well as a brief preview of what to expect from the world of Arborea in 2013.
First up is the new Crucible of Flame dungeon, followed by Champions' Skyring which is a three-on-three battleground that restricts the use of consumable items. En Masse will also be implementing two new reputation factions, and crafting and gathering will be "streamlined and simplified a bit by decreasing the amount and number of different ingredients needed to craft among other changes."
