When is Awakening happening?

Any word when we are getting awakening? I haven't heard much since the initial info from KTera. I'm super excited to see it finally. Is there any info on what ilvl needed for it? Any info on NA release or about the whole awakening process would be helpful.

  • We probably wouldn't see that until the later part of this year if it comes here.
  • My guess for the NA release is late spring early summer ish

    I think it's coming end of April. Today we're getting the 9/28 patch from KTera so we're 4 months behind them.

    Edit: got the date wrong.

    My left toe says that awakening system will be KTERA only, cuz... reasons. Smth to do with the balance of classes and not willing to force players play awakened classes only. Or there will be more memeslashes and the only way to fix them will be not implementing awakening till they finally make at least distantly reasonable anticheat protection, which will happen pretty Soon™.

    They already confirmed it was coming to our region, so I don't think it'll be removed.

    I would also guess late-April/early-May, to coincide with the anniversary.

    Thank you that does make sense :3
  • So one year ago we had 2.5 months gap between Ktera and the world. And now it increased to 4-5 months again. No wonder this poor game is dying.
  • On March we will get Male Brawler and RMHM which is the last content patch before awakening hits. After this maybe 6-8 week and we get awakening.

    We also will get all dungeons i guess (Rebels Hideout and Antaros Abyss) So that the reason why it can be delayed.

    Even if EME/GF rush awakening patch ... is this really exciting? I mean it doesn't matter if u have new skills but you still run the same content? It's like class revamp. First week everybody is hyped and following weeks they are bored because no content.

    I rather wait a little biut longer but get everything importan rather than getting everything like little pieces of cakes. This is why some classes really sucks in content. Remeber SSHM where the priest and mystic iframe change came later than usual > Problems Heal often die to first boss laser because they need to press Iframe later > CD applies later. After the iframe change priest and myst could use iframe earlier which result faster start of cd > iframe is up for the second laser.

    Or remember DSU 2 where zerk were useless because important class balance patch came almost at the end of DSU2 content.

    Before that Ktera was 6 months ahead so.....it fluctuates depending on how builds are bundled, and it's the same for any game that isn't published in North America or whatever region you play on/reside in. Builds take time to transfer out of the main region they're developed in.
  • Does anyone know how the awakenings will come? Maybe for certain classes first?

    The translated K-TERA patch notes list out a required ilvl of 439.
    Awakening Skills have been added for the following 7 classes: Lancer, Warrior, Berserker, Slayer, Brawler, Priest and Mystics

    New mission quest “Velika Ball” can be progressed with Item level 439.

    [Awakening Skills] can be obtained through completion of mission quest “Velika Ball”

    The name is not official, "Velika Ball" is just an assumed translation.

    It appears to be a sequence of solo instances and general solo play, fighting some bosses and such. A short highlight reel, hinting at things seems to be:


    If you want to suffer through a Korean stream from back when this was on their test server, there is an 11 hour one here, if you want to see the entire quest as it was back on Nov 26. (There may have been changes, just as there may be changes when it gets localized for us.) All of the classes in the list are shown there, hence the length.

    Reddit link first, since there are timestamps to the classes there.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/TeraOnline/comments/7gd1zy/awakening_stream_for_all_classess_from_ktera/
    (there are timestamps for the various classes you can jump to.)

    Just the YouTube from there, If you want to watch directly. (Again, this thing is 11 hours and change long, with the actual quest not starting for the first class until about 1:57:28 in.)

    https://youtu.be/ZQ30b15ThLA?t=18366 (Priest)
    https://youtu.be/ZQ30b15ThLA?t=22777 (Berserker)
    https://youtu.be/ZQ30b15ThLA?t=28104 (Slayer)
    https://youtu.be/ZQ30b15ThLA?t=32561 (Male Brawler)
    https://youtu.be/ZQ30b15ThLA?t=36858 (Lancer)

    Bottom line, have Frostmetal or better, do a quest series, earn skills.
