Today we are releasing a data mining tool for Tera - TeraDB Tool.
This tool can collect various game related data which is missing for the game client.
First and foremost it'll gather drop data which we all want to see in the database. Besides the drop, it can gather missing NPC and gatherables locations, shop sell lists, chests and boxes contents. All data is collected automatically while you are playing. Collected data is sent to our server automatically when you close the tool.
So if you want to help us fill the database with missing data, please use our tool daily.Usage instructions
