Jump into TERA's unique new event and crowdfund some pain!
These days, it's tough for devs to come up with a truly unique event. Usually they're all tied to holidays or some other seasonal trope. Don't get me wrong, they're fun! – but they're expected.
BAMs ("Big-Ass Monsters") are spawning at an incredibly fast rate, and they need to be exterminated. Instead of Kickstarter backers, it tracks the number of BAMs players have killed. Kill BAMs, earn tokens, and unlock more tiers of rewards!
How does it work?
- Tier 1: 750k kills - Double enchantment success rates for all of next weekend!
- Tier 2: 1.5m kills - Exchange your earned Bronze BAM tokens for gear!
- Tier 3: 2.0m kills - Ultra-Hyper-Fire-Turbo Time for 2 hours! -80% cooldown + extreme MP regen!
- Tier 4: 3.0 kills - Exchange your earned Silver BAM tokens for gear!
- Tier 5: 4.0m kills - Double battlegrounds credits, 24/7, until the event ends!
- Tier 6: 5.0m kills - Exchange your earned Gold BAM tokens for gear!
Now, it doesn't really work like a Kickstarter campaign, but it's a fantastic way to frame an otherwise meh event mechanics-wise. What really seals the deal is this amazing video.
Major props to En Masse for this one.
Time to saddle up for three weeks of big-ass monster crushin'!
