Instead of starting their journey on the Isle of Dawn, new characters in TERA will now find themselves on Stepstone Isle. The new area gives characters a chance to hit level 11 at an “accelerated path” in a more streamlined experience. The new area comes with the “Lost Isle” update, or patch 36.03, that also boasts a new character creation screen and introduces the “Returning Hero” program.

The updated character creation screen in TERA is a welcome change. Players can now choose a character’s race and class on single screen rather than bouncing between two to do so. The user interface for the experience has also been revamped to look much sleeker and improve readability. Even the character selection screen is different, and it now displays characters more clearly, letting player even move their characters on the selection screen.

The “Returning Hero” program added with the “Lost Isle” update in TERA gives high-level benched characters a chance to catch up. The program is designed for characters level 58 and higher to provide them with enough encouragement to hit the level cap of 65. Characters that have not logged in to the game for a least a month will have access to the “Returning Hero” tab in the Vanguard Request screen. The tab informs the player on the class of the character and its abilities. The program even lets the character upgrade their old gear, but this aspect is only available once per server. Players should use it wisely.
