You'll gain some amusement, no doubt, from riding around on Gourmando's back.
It's always fun to participate in holiday events in MMOs. It's sort of like doubling up on your festive cheer, you know? TERA's birthday month hasn't held back from celebrating - hot on the heels of its new raid comes the penultimate event in its event line-up: the hunt for a new rare mount.
According to the TERA website, boxes have been strewn across the world of Arborea. These boxes contain numerous unspecified anniversary gifts, as well as a chance to pick up four letters spelling out TERA's name. Collect all four letters, and you'll find yourself the proud owner of the new "infernal glutton" of a mount, Gourmando. He's rather silly, but you'd expect no less on an MMO's birthday.
TERA takes the fight beyond whack-a-mole monotony with enhanced aiming, dodging, and tactical timing to create intense and rewarding combat. Unlike other MMOs, you can use your controller or keyboard and mouse to control the action like never before. With all the depth you expect from a traditional MMO, plus the intense gratification of action combat, TERA changes all the rules.
Curiously, the skill book is tradable, so if you don't have the time or simply can't be bothered, you might be able to find a player willing to farm the letters for you. The gift boxes will remain in Arborea till May 31. In the meantime, check out this introduction to Gourmando to get an idea of what you're in for with this hilarious mount.
