Lions, Tigers, And Glyphs #TERA
After wiping on Dark Revelations on my new priest (I soloed it in beta, but apparently I suck, or they upped the difficulty), I switched back to my level 18 sorcerer because I really, really wanted to get her on the lion.
That is not a euphemism, as you can see to the left.
The lion mount is a free mount you can unlock at level 20 if you have the collector’s edition of TERA. I upgraded after a week of playing the standard edition because…it’s a lion!
I also unlocked the use of glyphs. Glyphs are TERA’s talent tree. You buy glyphs that are specific to a skill that you have, and there may be multiple glyphs for a single skill. Contrary to what you might find on the Web, glyphs unlock at level 20, not 25.
To use a glyph, you need to buy it from your class’ glyphmaster, found in Velika. First, you have to buy the glyph you want to use. Then, you right click on it in your inventory to install it. Once you install your first glyph, it will create a new tab on your Skills panel.
Each glyph requires a certain number of points to activate, and those requirements are shown on the glyph’s tool-tip, and on the glyph icon in the skills window. At the lower right corner of the panel, the amount of points you have to spend is shown. As you level, you will gain more points. At level 20, you have 10 points to spend, so keep that in mind when you are buying the glyphs, as they can get expensive in bulk. To activate a glyph, click on it, and then click Apply to lock in your choices.
