Is it just me, or are the rewards for this current Guardian Legion event kinda, lower, than what we expected? I remember, looking at the event calendar in weeks past, and talking with some friends about how we were gonna spam this guardian legion stuff for this week together. Now that they've seen the extra rewards, the most common response I get is "why bother?".

I think maybe a x1.5 or x2 bonus to the actual guardian legion credits themselves would've been neat. But beyond that, I find that the content is actually very rewarding in itself (honestly, I feel like increasing the gem box drop amount whatsoever would be overkill). However, the biggest complaint I hear about it is the immense amount of time it can take if you're not geared to the teeth and overly proficient at whatever class you're using. So maybe, increasing the actual points acquisition instead of the actual drops would make for a more attractive event?

Honestly, I can't speak for other servers, but I did the content on my home server of Fey Forest on and off throughout the day today and it seemed to me like there was about the same if not less people doing it than what I'd seen in the past few weeks at similar times. I understand that this is a week long event, and so it wouldn't make sense for it to have excessive "once in a year chance" kind of rewards, but it just doesn't feel like theres much of an event going on at all atm.


Thanks for the feedback on it - we will be running those kinds of events in the future as well - this is one of those "some folks will get a lot of use out of it, some won't" kind of events, so we're trying as many different things as we can (that don't break the servers, that is) to see what works and what doesn't.

I have a feeling you'll see those double-type events in the near future, but just wanted to say thanks for the feedback.
Oh I'll snuff out the conspiracies - this week's patch/maintenance has nothing to do with Fashion Coupon shop updates. That can be done live while the servers are up with our GM Tool. The maintenance this week is going to patch some server crash issues.

See? I'm helpful!
Ahhhhhh the monthly "Is TERA dead?" post - I was wondering if we'd see you come up in February.

And I finally have an answer: "No. It's not."

If the post was meant more to focus on the "Will BHS improve TERA?" part, then I also have an answer: "Yes. They will."
This issue has also been reported for review.

That's up to BHS.

As in forwarding the message to them, of course.

Probably already done and repeated countless times. But we know how BHS loves just showing the middle finger instead

Probably? It would be nice to know if they did that tho.
That is why these kind of threads appear time after time because this an ongoing issue since forever, and I don't recall any response from EME about the matter, at least through the past year.
I just hope to see a response from EME such as "We will forward the message to BHS". Of course get updated about the matter as well, if it's gonna happen or not. The worst thing is sitting in the dark, and that's personally the thing that puts me off about EME the most.
Not like they're going to read this message and change anyway, whatever.

This issue was already reported to Bluehole, but no updates have been provided back to me about progress.
Actually Feb. 31st. Get it right.

We turned on today's event and made this post, in case you missed it:

Oh dang - just an oversight! Discounting now!
As I said, items that were left out of the event due to it's poor performance will be added either to a later event or to next month's calendar! Thanks!
PERMANENT! It's bankable as long as you don't equip it.

Well folks, the TERA Allegiance event is a complete and total enigma as to how and when it wants to work, so we are abandoning it for this weekend's event. BUT DON'T PANIC! We don't want you to walk away from the weekend empty-handed!

We have decided that instead of requiring cumulative time to distribute the daily rewards we promised, we are just going to mail them to you on first login for each day. Unfortunately, due to the ability to trade/sell/exploit many of the over-all rewards, we had to remove many of them from this event (with the exception of Dragon Scales, which we TRIPLED in quantity over the course of the weekend). However we will make those up by adding or increasing the calendar rewards for those items on next month's calendar where we can. As such, here is the structure and rewards you can look forward to:

From 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 [that's 12 hours from when we kick it off] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 until 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

In addition to celebrate the year of the dog, on your first login after 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19, you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Puppy Mask x 1
  • Pound Puppy Box x 1

If you don't get them the exact minute you log in, give it a few minutes, we've seen that sometimes the tool will send them one minute apart, so it could take up to 15 or 20 minutes to get all your goodies.

One last note: you may have noted that we have removed the Jiangshi hat accessory from this event; we will instead add it to a different future event.

Sorry for the last minute pivot but I have to give mad props to @SingleBear for testing, shifting, testing, proposing ideas, looking for solutions, testing, and finally executing.
Wouldn't be so bad if THE DANG EVENTS WORKED AS INTENDED.
The event (when we bend it to our will and make it work) will be for any level characters.

Also, that is a terrible f*cking attitude to have. There are Asians, south-east Asians, Asian-Americans, and Asian-Canadians that play this game... tons of them. Many in my guild (even some Brazilian-Asians!)

Just because you don't celebrate something doesn't mean it's not important to someone else, or that they can't have an opinion about it because you don't. Terrible attitude you have.

@seandynamite

The event is still not working.

We are aware and working on it - I have posted an announcement post that we will update as we gain more information - currently it is working on internal test environments but not on live so we're trying to track down whatever technical glitch is blocking it.

UPDATE: The event is running as intended on our test environments but for some reason won't trigger on live. We are still looking into the technical issues that could be causing this.

https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/21166/vanguard-rewards-what-does-increased-rewards-actually-mean#latest

What I want to know is what does Increased Reputation apply to at level 65, because I'm pretty sure it doesn't apply to Guardian Missions (the only active reputation source that is useful at level 65);.
I believe "Increased Reputation" actually means an increase in Vanguard Credits.
No, I am not leaving, haha. =)

When the Parcel Mail message was originally written, it was going to be a "Call to Arms" for the BAMassacre, but with the Event now disabled, we had to quickly pivot and re-write the message going out.
Sorry if it came off as a "Thanks for everything, peace" sort of message.
Due to unfortunate performance issues caused by the BAMassacre event, we will be ending the event Wednesday at 9am PST. This should give anyone still working on the 500 threshold time to complete it.

As a replacement, we will be enabling the Triple Item and Reputation Vanguard Request events. Triple rewards will run from Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 3am PST through Saturday, Feb 17 at 3am PST.
ElinUsagi wrote: »
Wouldn't be a way to keep the 500 kill threshold but including all the rewards from the lower tier threshold wheh players reach that amount?

Sadly, no. We do not have the ability to edit the current event's reward.
After reducing the event to a single BAM kill Threshold, the server performance issues have been greatly diminished. We will continue to monitor it throughout the night.

We designed the event with multiple thresholds so that all players could participate. Some people would only have time to complete a few thresholds whereas some would be able to clear all of them. And yes, we knew that a lot of you would also know exactly where to go to clear the thresholds quickly and then move on to alts to clear the thresholds with them as well. It's super cool to us that some of you will min/max an event like this. We love your enthusiasm.

Unfortunately, the event had a negative impact on server performance and we couldn't see it thru to completion. I do hope we can bring this event back with multiple thresholds again. And the loots will be just as generous, even for you min/maxers.
If at anytime we become aware of an exploit, even one we create thru event design, we will take appropriate action and be completely visible that the action was taken due to an exploit.

We reduced the event to its current state of only having the 500 threshold due to player performance reports and server reports from our operations team.
Only the 500 threshold is available on all servers. Please continue to inform us of any performance issues you experience during this reduced version of the event. We will also be monitoring the server logs. If we continue to see performance issues we will completely disable the event.

It is unfortunate the Valentine's BAMassacre event caused these issues. We felt this would be a really cool event. Hopefully we can bring it back some time in the future once Bluehole has reworked it.
Cobalt, since you are effectively remove the majority of the event and will potentially remove even the 500 mob one if performance does not improve, are there plans for any alternative event as compensation?

Still TBD at the moment, but I think the Team is leaning towards a Vanguard Item and Rep Event to fill the void, if things do not improve.
Sateva wrote: »
Getting rid of all but one teir of the event kind of renders farming it pointless, at least make it lower than 500 if you're going to make us play the alts we can't afford to gear any more to farm this event. 100 seems fair given the situation.
Thank you for your honest feedback, though at this point, we're most likely going to stick with the 500 amount.
TERA's newest Producer @seandynamite was able to finish 500 in under an hour, so it seems like a reasonable amount for those who still want to finish their current progress.
clfarron4 wrote: »
Not going to beat around the bush here. It's not even 2pm PST, 5pm EST. You still have 3 hours at the earliest to peak.

It's pretty obvious that if you continue like this, the event is going to cause the amount of lag that we experienced on the release day of the Valkyrie class. And yes, I can already see plenty of Valks where Runeburst is only firing 4 of the hits maximum, only because this is an open world event, it affects Open World AND dungeons.

There's a reason why Gameforge killed this event pretty quickly and replaced it with their more usual Dungeon Type event (which works on the same Elin Interface icon).

As a heads up
We are aware of server performance issues with the Valentine's BAMassacre event.
Since many of you are actively participating in the event, we wanted to give you a heads-up that at 3 p.m. PST, we are removing all event targets EXCEPT the 500 kill threshold.

At 4 p.m. PST we will determine if the event is stable enough to continue, or if we need to disable it completely.

We have our Networking Team reviewing everything possible, and we are gathering real time data that can be directly looked into by TERA's Developer, in the hopes that an Event like this can be fully reviewed and actually optimized for later Events of this same nature.

Shutting off the Event without gathering the data wouldn't lead to any future optimizations of the Event.

Well, just being completely honest here...
If you can't login through the TERA Launcher right now (even just to see how your experience would be with this Event), it generally means that something besides the Event itself is restricting your access to patch successful.
If you want that solved, you can feel free to contact Support through a Ticket.
Otherwise, you can certainly try to troubleshooting it yourself, or I suppose you also have the option of not doing anything and just checking back after the Event is over.
No need to make additional threads, there was one already started here.

Pretty sure it's not rocket science as to what the cause is. (No offense meant EME.)

None taken. And you're right, it's not rocket science...it's computer science. (I got jokes.)

What we are trying to establish is exactly how this impacts our servers. Knowing that it is crushing the CPUs on our arbiter servers and not a packet issue is important. The more info we can pull and send to Bluehole the better our chance of getting the event optimized so that we can bring it back better.
We are actively tracking the performance of the event. Please continue to share your individual reports of performance issues with details: what server are you on, which hunting zone you are in, and the time of day.

The data we collect will be sent back to our Developer so that we can make the performance of the event better.

Three chars till 100 included - braveries, feasts, one mantle. No single dyad.
i wish i could give you my stuff to have one dyad..

You got a mantle at 100? Gratz
Sorry about no dyad, we kept that item rare.
Sorry about the localization issue. New text for event UI is implemented as of maintenance this morning.
The bit about "no more than 5 levels higher than you" is actually +/- 5 levels. Again, my bad, it should have been better localized.

I currently have 3 level 65s - and working on my 4th (nothing compared to some of you, but I'm no slouch). So not sure where you get information that we don't play the game. I play every chance I get, so say hi to Dark.Gunny on CH if you get a chance.

Also, the streams aren't going away; as has been pointed out, we are currently looking for a CM to backfill the void left by Spacecats. Until then, Singlebear and I will do them when we can, but our time is filled working on getting v66, v67, v68, Fashion Coupon store updates (NOT GOING AWAY BTW), In game Events, BG calendar, item releases, product sales, dungeon highlights, Steam products, new starter packs, elite status updates, and about a million other things done. So please, believe me when I say we are not idly sitting around. We put in long hours and long weeks, but we are a small team and even one vacancy leaves a gap. Soon it will be filled and it will be back to normal and we'll all rejoice. Til then, patience, my young padawans.
Monster default loot tables have not changed. This is an event with its own UI and reward system.

Thresholds: 5, 15, 30, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 1000. When you hit each threshold, the UI will offer your rewards.

Rewards: At each threshold you will receive a fixed reward and a random reward. The fixed reward for each threshold is a Strongbox Key. The random reward is rolled from the list provided.

Frosty Mantle of Indifference: I hope none of you experience this, but yes, RNG may not be on your side and you may not get the Frosty Mantle of Indifference even after clearing the 1000 threshold. You have a REALLY good chance at 1000 to get it though.

Kill credit is decided by the solo/party/raid that does the highest percentage of overall damage to the BAM. If you are partied with others then your damage is all counted together and all members get credit for kills.
Examples:
1. If you are in a raid of 9 people and some random solo player comes over and does more damage overall to the BAM you and your raid are fighting, then the system assigns credit to that solo player who just schooled your raid.
2. In the same scenario, if your raid does more overall damage to the BAM than the solo player, as y'all should, then every member of the raid gets kill credit.

We have not increased channels on IoD. The system can dynamically increase channels if the channels get too full. We are not manually increasing channels so that every group gets their own personal space as we feel it is not in the spirit of an MMO. We will of course monitor the event for any improvements we can make the next time we run something similar.

Please note, there is a correction to the thresholds we previously listed: There is NO threshold for 10. There IS a threshold for 300. Check the thresholds listed above.
will you guys be adding more channels to Island of Dawn? i got a feeling it will be overrun with players. especially those that can clear a bam in under 10 seconds then leap to the next etc.

I actually asked about this, and the answer is no, but only due to how the Event and System works.
If more channels were added, it would only spreads the BAMs out over the extra channels, meaning there would be less BAMs to find within each channel.

Overall, there will be a ton of BAMs to find and defeat, and I'll also point out that Dungeon BAMs are included.

Since the details is out, I wanted to ask something real quick.

Are these gonna be new BAMs or the same BAMs that we have running around right now?

"characters level 40-65 should kill BAMs of their level, or up to 5 levels higher." - I think this part implies the current BAMs that are already around right now.

This was actually one that I had personally requested semi-recently. ;)

I definitely like the sound of a class that is a hybrid of Tanking and Healing.

The class would probably have pretty low DPS output, but high amount of health, high defense modifier, high balance modifier, and high resistances.
And there would be a constant flow of aggro through skills that damage outright or overtime, some of which provide health back to the character and their Party / Raid.

a Paladin class? xD

Perhaps, but the feedback I had sent in had implied that the class would be more Vampiric in nature, which would mean that the class would not walk the same path as a Paladin. ;)
I believe the details are coming later this afternoon.

whats going on EME ? you want viewers but what are we going to watch if you wont stream

We will most likely have an actual TERA Stream very soon.
Right now, I believe there is still a need for a dedicated TERA CM who is able to plan each Stream in advanced, along with the many other day-to-day tasks.
This issue was reported shortly after the Dragons were first introduced, and reported again shortly after the Phoenixes were added.

So far, I am under the impression that neither our Internal QA Department or Bluehole's QA Department have been able to solidly reproduce the issue in a Live Server or QA Environment.

When our players write in via Support Ticket, we generally ask the same types of questions, and then send the additional information over to these other Teams, in the off-chance some new piece of information ends up being what is needed to find the trigger.

Normally, this means that we have no immediate fix for those that write in...

Some players have mentioned that removing the flying dragon skill and adding it back has helped, while others have stated it has not.

Other players mentioned that it was resolved directly following a Maintenance.

For the sake of community transparency, I would ask all of you commenting within this Thread, to take a moment to think about what exactly was going on before the issue began, and then comment on as many of the following factors that you can think of :

- What Class were you playing on ?
- What Zone were you located in ?
- What type of Monster were you fighting ?
- What Skills were you using ?
- What Buffs did you have applied ?
- What time of day did it begin ?

If you have any additional factors that I have not thought to add, please feel free to include it, as it could be the one thing that we haven't asked that ends up leading to a resolution.

Also, if you are recording a video ( with the Passives still working) and happen to catch what triggers the Passives to stop working, that video would greatly help Bluehole's QA Team, and expedite the overall fix.
Closing this Thread as well, due to the fact that it has derailed.

As of today race change vouchers will allow castanic and high elf female gunners to covert their character to the most recent addition to TERA: the Elin Gunner!

You can get vouchers from the in-game store or here.
I've definitely brought this up a few times since we last held Canyon Clash & Skyring Slam, so the feedback has been passed along.
It might be worth bringing this up again after the new Community Manager has had a chance to settle in.
As of this morning, we started receiving quite a few reports from players who were unable to receive our Account Armor Code emails, as well as the email sent when a Password Reset request is made.

We have been able to narrow the issue down to players who happen to use Yahoo as their Email Provider for their EME Account.

For this, there is no immediate fix or an ETA at the moment, but our Team continues their investigation into this matter and will hopefully have this resolved as quickly as possible.
Just as an FYI, I did pass along this feedback.
Not sure where I am "pretending to be magnanimous"... I'm merely outlining a schedule of events as I said I would this week. If being magnanimous is following through on that...

I'm talking about EME in general. Not specifically you, (the decision to remove something and hand it out piecemeal as a reward is asinine.)
You'll be happy to read the Development Roadmap! As voted on, Fashion Coupon shop is up next and due for an update this month.

Oh thank you so much! (sarcasm.)

You brought that up 5 months ago. You'll implement it now. Great, thanks. Meanwhile, Spacecats was told about it almost 2 years ago: http://www.teradevtracker.com/?topic=/forums/general-discussion/topics/Fashion-Coupon-Store-Before-and-Now
I appreciate you guys tracking all this down and posting screenshots. Some of these weapon skins look really sweet. We're going to check with Bluehole and see what the deal is with some of these. With any luck we'll be able to get them in our version, but it depends on their response.

That was on 04/06/2016, 08:57 AM We hear nothing, and the thread was deleted, just like your in game shop update thread.

Can you at least recognize that we are feeling like you (EME) don't listen to our concerns at all? This may not be the case from your perspective, but it is how it looks from ours.

I do recognize that @CassandraTR - we are trying to execute on our promises and I understand your frustration. It's just as frustrating for me/us when we feel like we aren't coming through for all of you. I just keep in mind that we are doing our best to meet the needs of the audience, but everything takes prioritization, resources, and time, all of which are limited. So believe me when I tell you that you are heard.
>.< how..? what..? more diversity by reducing vg rewards? really?!

this direction eme has chosen gives less and less diversity, because you cant really choose what u will do ingame on a given day... you will have to do the event eme thinks u should be doing or simply not get the stuff you need to progress....

silver talents for example... grind 1-4 pieces of them for each dgn/ghillie run or just do strongbox event and get 6000 of em?
i'd say stop with events alltogether and make those 6000 pieces reachable through regular play....

I agree with Cassandra though, it is pointless talking about it, eme doesnt care and silly sheep will say it's all ok...

I agree with you 100%. I don't understand. We've had a cash shop event/sale every month since Arsenal IN OCTOBER. At the same time @seandynamite said he would update the various in game shops, and so far the only thing that has happened was to move one shop to the other, and delete it. Nothing for Ace. Nothing for VG. Friendship Token shop.

There are so many other things that they could work on or fix, yet we have something taken away and then given back as a "prize."

EU just got FI/FIHM back a second time. We didn't even get it the first time because they skipped those implementations.

I'm really saddened and disheartened with all of this this. I just gave you guys (EME) $50 yesterday. I won't be doing that again.

You'll be happy to read the Development Roadmap! As voted on, Fashion Coupon shop is up next and due for an update this month.
@seandynamite

I am sincerely disappointed that this is your decided outcome. Not like anyone will care.

You've taken something away, and decided to dole it back out, pretending to be magnanimous.

Ace Dungeon still has Imperator VM mats. You could have updated that at any time to include things like dragon scales, artisan kits, or dyad/smart dyad niveot structures.

I know you could have updated that because you promised us almost 5 months ago that you would: http://www.teradevtracker.com/?topic=which-in-game-shop-would-you-like-to-see-updated-first

(You can't delete everything, we'll find it.)

You guys are tone deaf.

Not sure where I am "pretending to be magnanimous"... I'm merely outlining a schedule of events as I said I would this week. If being magnanimous is following through on that...

nice ''Event'' make something look special even tho we had it normal for the past months/year :joy:
just turn it back like it was and be done with this foolishness

also no Lunar Newyear sale like last year?

i didn't include any sales information on this - this is specifically game events.
Hello all!

As promised last week I have a calendar of events that I just posted as a news post on the site - there is also a more visual calendar update coming as soon as the creative team can get some time, but I wanted to call attention to the events that start tonight with resets at 3 am PST!

Starting at 3 a.m. PST on Tuesday February 6, players will earn double the Vanguard rewards and reputation from Vanguard Requests. Plus, we’re adding 400 Artisan Refining Kits to the rewards for the following Island of Dawn Vanguard Requests:
  • Hunt Brutal Naga Battlemasters
  • Hunt Brutal Iron Giants
  • Hunt Brutal Onyx Hydraths

These rewards will last until Saturday, February 10 at 3 a.m. PST, when we TRIPLE the Vanguard rewards and reputation until Tuesday, February 13 at 3 a.m. PST.

We will have more information about the events throughout the month, but I wanted to get this out there as soon as I could!

We are asking how they are bringing back this content from BHS. In the past this was not something we were allowed to mess with, so I'm interested to know how this is being done as much as you.
Please avoid call-outs on the Forums. Your best course of action is to file a Support ticket and include the screenshots so that we can investigate.
In the past we have released prior years' summer costumes during the summer festival, so I can't see a reason why we wouldn't this summer as well.

It's possible they could come back during Anniversary as well in May, but that isn't as sure.

That is working correctly. The "bonus rewards" are only available on the non-repeatable quest - so you can do it each day.
@CassandraTR - I'll look into this, but please keep in mind that I may not get an answer prior to monday.
Meta and Entro Emblem shops are strictly controlled by the design team.

Thanks for the reply but what I want to know is if there will be double vanguard reward for solo content such as IoD (like x2 tokens) or not. Or else, if there's a schedule out there or not.

No schedule posted yet, but we will get one posted early next week in a news post announcement. We had the rug pulled out on a few event plans and the tool was giving us issues, so we spent this week scrambling to test events that we can use and pivoting on our plans to try to get things in place that we can deliver on - I don't want to post a calendar and only execute on half of it.

That said, this weekend kicks off events running throughout the month (during weekdays and weekends, I don't mean that to sound like it's just on the weekends).

-s
We will be running a double reward Vanguard rewards event and triple Vanguard rewards event this month (and no, I don't mean the last day of the month :p )
To clarify, the only thing that changed here was the UI - we moved the tokens you we already added from the bonus section to the base rewards section. The main reason is this: we can't add more than one bonus item event to anything at a time. So, these "bonus" 1350 metamorphic emblems were blocking us from being able to add actual bonus items to events like we wanted to. Now that they've moved, we are able to run events where we can add actual bonus items, not just supplementary rewards.

In reference to the double item xp guardian mission, that is also an event that we will run from time to time, but we have no intention of turning it on as a permanent setting at this time. And when I say time to time, I mean we'll see the first event later this month.
Sorry for the radio silence - thanks for the recognition for this event; we have plans to continue the events throughout the month and into next month, leading into the Male Brawler release. We haven't posted a calendar of events yet but I plan on getting that done early next week so you can see what's coming. I appreciate the patience on that front; I promise your voices are heard!

Any stormcry +9? How about those essence?

I still working on getting more materials from various sources, but I do have a character that has some +5'ish Stormcry.

Yeah, most likely there will be a new announced Introductory Thread.

@CobaltDragon, are you our new CM?

As mentioned by me in another Forum Thread , we're in the phase of taking applicants.
I'm not sure @CobaltDragon understands the full weight of doing that yet - or at least without GM cheats like when they +15'd starfall - but I applaud him for the response as it seems like he was willing to learn which is huge imo.

For the sake of clarity:
I have played TERA since 2012 ( Pre-Closed Beta ).
I have characters across every server, and manually leveled the majority of them to 65.
I have at least one of each Class at 65. Each one is decently geared, ranging anywhere from Stormcry all the way down to Steadfast. I enjoy PVE content quite a bit, but also run Battlegrounds whenever I can get the queue to pop.
With that all being said, hope to see some of you in queue today, tomorrow, or sometime in the near future. ;)
To go along with an Event we will be running this weekend, we'll be making a change to the blue "Additional Rewards" sections that are provided with each Vanguard Request.

At the moment, each one offers a set number of Metamorphic Emblems.

The change that will be made will keep the Metamorphic Emblems, but instead of listing them in the blue "Additional Rewards" section, the Metamorphic Emblem reward will be moved up into standard rewards.

This allows us to free up the blue "Additional Reward" section for Event specific rewards.

More details about the Event to come later today in a separate post.

To be a good CM though
  • admit that you're not TERA savvy (because chances are you don't know more than "this class is cool 'cause its an elin" or something along the lines of nothing to do with gameplay) but that you are willing to learn and actually BE willing to learn

It's just my personal opinion, but I would like to see a CM level a character from the beginning all the way up to +9 Stormcry (as a normal player would). I don't think you can empathize with the community until you fully understand what it takes to reach that level. They could even make it part of the twitch stream to help other players (sort of like a zero to hero series).

Which Class would you like to see leveled ?
Feedback has been passed along regarding this.
I've noticed that in all of these screenshots the character has a head slot accessory equipped.
Does this issue seem to only occur with specific accessories ?
Does the issue go away the moment the head slot accessory is unequipped ?
Closing this thread as there are already others with the same subject.
There will be events this month! Sorry its taking so long to post about them but the event tool was giving us insane amounts of heck this week so we had to pivot our plans somewhat. In any case you’ll have info about this weekends events tomorrow, then more early next week about the rest of the month.
Don’t get too excited. Just some antics.
I’d check my parcel post in game if I were you tomorrow.
Feedback was passed along regarding this.

but at least we get 3 day travel journal, village atlas and that snowflake thing without any description at the end of month :D

Seandynamite mentioned more information about it here.
If you provide a list of items that most players would have expected for this Jackpot ( or future Jackpots), I'd be happy to pass that along.
[quote="ElinLove;c-205507"they selectively ignore our stuff. Not only this, but many older bug reports too. Makes me seriously doubt how useful it even is to post. Wonder if they ignore it just to not blatantly say "no" thinking it will have a negative impact or what, but I feel like a direct no would be less of a spit on our faces.[/quote]

Just as an FYI, I have been passing along all Feedback I have come across ( forums, discord, in-game, reddit, etc.. ).

Unless something changes, I'll still have to refer to what was posted back in Early January by Spacecats.
The February Battleground Calendar is going out later this morning / afternoon, I believe it was just going through some last minute revisions.

as i said before other players are seeing the same thing i sent ticket already lets see when a fix is put in place
@Naru2008 the reason why i said that is because i would expect that CobaltDragon should have passed on the info to the dev team but i guess he don't do those stuff.

Bug was submitted and sent to QA for verification before sending onwards to the development team to look at. I'd be curious to know if there are any client mods - in the past that has almost always been the culprit for these kinds of issues.

Speaking of calender rewards, what is this? V9pOpUf.png

That, along with the login calendar item for 2/23, will be revealed better after we get the next patch to add these (currently waiting for delivery of it at the end of this week) - they are new items.
