It's not possible to install multiple regions versions in Steam since they install in same directory and overwrite each other.

Peculiarity of EME TERA was Rewards Emporium. You could advance reward tiers by playing the game, but also by buying stuff with real money. Permanent rewards are XP bonus from hunting monsters and enchanting bonus for gear (as newest gear has like 5% success change on higher plusses, even +1% is huge).

You also collect reward credit simply by clicking button daily or playing boring single-player dungeon (recycled first floor of Crucible of Flame dungeon). reward credit was used to buy some stuff from Emporium, simple consumables on lower level, some costumes on higher reward tiers. Player loyalty reward program was opened in April 2016.[1])[2]
