TERA inaugural elections begin May 18
TERA's intriguing political system is about to get its first vanarch as candidates may declare their candidacy beginning May 18th.
This Friday, those who wish to run for vanarch, and reign over an entire province for three weeks, can begin their campaign to win the election. As vanarch, you can collect taxes from vendor shops, set tax rates, decide which specialty shops to open in a province, and gain fame for yourself and your guild.
As En Masse details, there are three parts to the political cycle: the registration stage, the voting stage, and the reign stage. The registration and voting stages last one week each, while the reigning stage lasts for three weeks and overlaps the next occurring campaign period.
To run for vanarch you need to be at least a level 50 character who is the leader of a level three guild with at least 20 members, and pay a candidacy fee of 3,000 gold and 100 Catharnach awards. The deadline to apply is May 25 and 6:00 p.m. Pacific.
Every game account gets one vote for each of the three continents per server. The candidates with the most votes by 6:00 p.m. Pacific on June 1 will be on of the first vanarchs in TERA.
Although the vanarch's reign is for three weeks, the registration process will open again just one week after vanarchs take office. This means you will need to apply, campaign, and get elected all over again. Check out the TERA vanarch election calendar for more details.
