Patch Progress Stuck On "Applying Patch"

If you find that your patch progress bar is stuck at "Applying Patch", please give it at least 5 minutes. It is likely that there is activity occurring that is not registering on the progress bar. If the progress does not begin to move after 5 minutes, close out the launcher completely and reopen it. If that does not fix the issue, attempt the fixes below:



Make sure your TERA folder is not Read only

If you continue to be unable to download the patch, please navigate to the TERA folder on your hard drive, which is typically located at C: -> Program Files (x86) -> TERA.


  1. Right Click on the TERA folder and select properties.
  2. Uncheck the Read-Only box and click apply.
  3. Make sure "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files" is selected
  4. Click Okay, and then Okay again.
  5. Attempt the patch download.

  2. For Windows Vista & 7 type in "CMD" and press Enter on your keyboard. For Window XP click on "Run" and type "CMD" and press Enter on your keyboard.

  7. If you are still unable to complete the patch, then you may need to delete your game.version file and repatch the game.

Repatch TERA

If you have removed the intro videos, modded, or deleted other files, you may need to repatch TERA by deleting your game.version file.

  1. Right Click on your TERA Launcher shortcut
  2. Click "Open File Location". This will open the exact folder that TERA is installed into.

  3. Right Click on your game.version file and click Delete
  4. Attempt to patch TERA once again

Remove your EN.version file and Launcher.version files

In your TERA game installation folder, locate the EN.version file and any Launcher.version files. Remove these files, and then re-launch the TERA Launcher. Allow the launcher to re-download these files, and the patch should complete!
