En Masse Entertainment has announced that TERA servers will be merging on September 18, 2012. This is in order to facilitate a better player experience according to the article posted on the official site.
Where some might look on this as a negative, I feel differently. By combining our servers, we facilitate a more unified community and give players a more full, alive world where finding groups, locating rare items (for lower prices!), and getting into dungeons quickly are the norm. Most importantly, combined servers will allow us to run more regular, player-focused events where we get to interact with our players. You can find a link to our detailed FAQ regarding this process at the bottom of this letter. It will be updated further as we get more information.
The article also discusses upcoming events and content additions in brief detail.
