Hi everyone!

Thanks to those that watched the stream today. I learned a lot from doing this and I'm excited to keep moving forward with it!

If you could be so kind as to give me some pointers on what you'd like to see more of/less of - I'd love to hear it! I want to keep this going with Apex, and then maybe move on to do other types of streams like this! I want to give the spotlight to the players and have you all share your expertise with me and our viewers :D

Things I'm working on improving for the next stream:
- Audio differences from recordings to live
- PVE Camera angles - how to show off dem skillz off better

I look forward to what you all have to say!

(pls be nice about your feedback!)
When it comes to negative feedback, it's something that takes more investigation than just one comment, and it tends to have a lot of different perspectives that I have to parse through. But when there's positive feedback, it's easier to pass that feedback along to Bluehole. It's good to combine feedback with positives and negatives.

I commented on this thread because it was a straightforward thread. Please don't think that because I don't post on other threads, it doesn't mean I don't grab that feedback either.

For example, I've grabbed feedback from the Kyra's posts, more feedback on UI, and how hard it is to be a level 65 player that isn't necessarily super well versed in those harder dungeons.
Could you share a video as an example please? If this is an issue, I'd like to share it with Bluehole.

@Catservant This is lovely! I'll make sure to share this with Bluehole :)
@Chlorox the maintenance we're doing today is meant to fix that issue!


I hope your passives are back up and running after 11 am today, please let us know if it doesn't! :)

@TYoung11 Thanks so much for this feedback! I'm adding it to my report to Bluehole this week :)
Following yesterday’s statement, we have received a lot of questions regarding the ongoing use of proxy relative to our terms of service.

Our stance is summarized below:

We are not actively seeking out players who use proxy and other third-party mods to improve their gameplay experience. Ultimately, we want you to enjoy playing TERA fairly. Monitoring streams to identify players who are using DPS meters or UI mods to ban them is not a regular part of our day-to-day.

That said, we remain committed to addressing reports of cheating and abuse facilitated by third-party programs. Using third-party mods remains in violation of our Terms Of Service, and we reserve the right to ban any player purely for their use of ANY unofficial mod, particularly if we deem such use to be abusive or result in any kind of unfair play. If you choose to use third-party programs, you do so at the risk of your En Masse account being banned.

We remain dedicated to pursuing long-term and official solutions to the beneficial features provided by popular third-party mods to eliminate this grey area in the future and provide an improved experience for our players (as outlined in yesterday’s message).
Need some talents?

The Lustrous Federation Crate is bursting with one of six talent packages - in store until October 15 @ 10 am PDT!

Six packages are:
  • 75-600 Golden Talents
  • 75-600 Silver Talents
  • 50-200 Golden Darics
  • 100–200 Golden Plates
  • 50–100 Silver Siglos
  • 25-50 Silver Plates

It’s been a little over two weeks since our TERA Proxy DMCA requests were executed by Discord and GitHub. We have seen the frustration and worry this has raised among members of our community and we understand the reasons behind them.

TERA Proxy has existed for some years as a controversial platform for modding TERA. It has been used to build or support some tools into the game that players have come to rely on; like a DPS meter, some UI and some optimizations that reduced ping and lag. For some players, these optimizations have become vital.

Unfortunately though, some players have also used these tools selfishly for cheating or griefing.

Those players for whom Proxy has contributed to their enjoyment of TERA are understandably upset. The Community Team here is sympathetic to their position (though not necessarily with all of the ways they've chosen to express their frustration) and we are actively communicating with Bluehole to identify solutions to underlying problems that Proxy solved for these players.

The TERA community has felt unheard and under-served for some time now. Many of you may feel numb to messages and community addresses that come off like platitudes. The current Community Team at En Masse is well aware of this situation and taking lengths to remedy this over time and in response to this specific situation.

Community feedback we’ve received following the takedowns has made it clear that the players want certain features these third-party tools provided and we feel it’s our duty to provide a solution.

To start, we’re working directly with veteran players and long-time members of EME staff to ensure we properly contextualize all of the feedback that we are passing along to the developers in order to avoid past pitfalls and process traps. So far, this has been well-received. Bluehole is responding to us with higher urgency and at a higher level than in the past; there is an active and shared interest between EME and Bluehole to find solutions for an in-game DPS meter and UI optimizations. EME is devoted to investing our own resources into building out these solutions as well.

It is still early days, but we are working on reallocating internal resources, reaching out to talent outside of our organization, investigating ways to enable, empower the existing mod community to find and build their own secure and sanctioned solutions. In short, we’re actively exploring any and all avenues to address ALL of your feedback (Proxy-related or otherwise) in a more agile, creative, and transparent manner.

Meanwhile, we’re working to improve our relationship with the community following these takedowns by more openly communicating our progress towards providing meaningful replacement solutions and fostering a collaborative spirit surrounding their development. We hope this can be a rallying moment in TERA’s history where we can all come together to build a brighter future for Arborea.
Hi everyone!

Just wanted to notify you about having to remove the Kart Rider Mounts from your inventory, this is why:

We're giving you a Mount Token to replace your Go-Kart mount, as it's no longer available in this region and has to be removed.

How are we going to give them to you?

1. You'll receive a parcel post from SingleBear after maintenance October 9 (after maintenance) containing the appropriate number of tokens per mount.
2. Tokens are delivered to the last character logged in.
3. Tokens are compensation for the removal of the permanent Temporary Skill Books and permanent learned mounts. Temporary learned mounts will not be removed and will be allowed to run out their duration. No compensation is provided for learned temporary mounts.

Note - you may receive 2 types of tokens:
- Temporary mounts
- Permanent mounts

Thanks for understanding, and sorry for the inconvenience!
A new achievement season (Season 8) started Tuesday, September 25. For Season 8, a number of factors—including an incorrect calculation of the previous season’s Laurels—necessitated a reboot of the Laurel system. (You may see this reflected in-game when reviewing the History section of the Achievement Grades window.)

Since achievements are periodically added to and retired from the game, when a new season starts your Laurel is re-calculated based on currently obtainable content and goals. As such, while the point total displayed when opening the Achievement window represents an accurate record of your character’s in-game accomplishments, it is not necessarily the number being used to determine your Laurel. (To see that number, hover over the displayed Laurel for a few seconds.)

As of the start of Season 8, the current number of eligible achievement points is 15025. If some of your unlocked achievements were moved to “Legacy” status, you may need to complete new achievements to regain your previous Laurel.

To earn a Bronze Laurel, a character needs 20% or more of the available points (around 3005).

To earn a Silver Laurel, a character needs 40% or more of the available points (around 6010).

To earn a Gold Laurel, a character needs 60% or more of the available points (around 9015).

To earn a Diamond Laurel, a character needs 80% or more of the available points (around 12020).

To earn a Champion Laurel, a character needs 95% or more of the available points (around 14275).

NOTE: Laurel calculations are based on an internal percentage, and due to rounding issues may not correspond exactly to the numbers shown for each tier. In some cases, the game may show 0% remaining to reach a new tier when you really have 0.4% or less. When this happens, unlocking one more achievement should suffice to award the Laurel.
Have you spotted this little Elin on your screen?


She may have some fun tasks for you to do for some great rewards!
You can find details in the in-game calendar.
Hi TERA Players,

The TERA PC team is working on something to share by early next week. Per Denommenator's forum post (also quoted at the start of this thread), we ask for your patience.

We want to be sure that we provide you meaningful updates, so this post is to serve for the purpose to let you know we are not ignoring you. We have certainly heard you on "we don't want to just be told we are being heard, we want action". That's fair. But it also takes a little bit of time.

Right now, we are working with Bluehole to determine what we can implement alongside our current roadmap. We want to share with you more than a "yes, we'll do XYZ", but a "yes, we'll do XYZ, here is when".

I know it's hard when you can't see the work we are doing, that you only have what communication we do here or on the Discord to rely on. Like Denommenator's post said, we do hear you, and ask for patience while we work through your feedback and with Bluehole.

We'll be providing another response by early next week.

Thank you,
The TERA PC Team
Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay on this one. We want to let you know that moving forward we're going to change how we announce/communicate the monthly in-game events to you. We want to make sure the events are able to be found by players while...well PLAYING the game! The best place to find information for these moving forward in the in-game calendar.

- We're a couple weeks away from Dark Reaches and the final round of Apex skills. Look for events to help you level and gear.

- Harrowhold Bonus Loot will be turned on Tuesday, October 2 at 4 am PDT (11 UTC). These loots will be placed as Event Bonus loot and subject to change from time to time. See in-game calendar for more details.

- Dreadspire will return Tuesday, October 16 with v75 Dark Reaches release. Loot details to come!

- With the addition of the Bellicarium shop in v74 we will now be able to run events to increase Bellicarium Credit rewards. With the release of v75 Dark Reaches, we will be removing the Jackpot from Battlegrounds which was acting as a temporary system to reward player efforts in Battlegrounds. Elemental Essence will also be removed from the BG Coin shop as it is included in the Bellicarium shop. BG coins will continue to be available through BG Vanguard Requests.

The weekly Vanguard event cycle will change to a 3-week cycle for more Increased Item events:
October 02-09 Increased Vanguard Item XP Reward
October 09-16 Increased Vanguard Gold Rewards
October 16-23 Vanguard Double Item Reward
October 23-30 Increased Vanguard Player XP
October 30 - November 06 Increased Vanguard Reputation Credits
November 06-13 Vanguard Double Item Reward repeats

- Guardian Legion and Guild events will be dropped from the weekly cycle. These events will come back for special occasions.

Don't forget! From now on, check the in-game calendar panel for upcoming events!
Hi there,

I am REALLY REALLY REALLY sorry, this is not a good excuse, but with PAX/server merges my plate was overflowing.

I just emailed everyone, and all of the winners should be receiving their rewards by the end of the week.

This is seriously my bad. I'll make sure the next art contest we do it so much better on my end.

@Pee please let me know if you get that email!!!
Hi there!

Just wanted to let you know that CU: Velika has been set to 6 PM PDT. You can check the forum post too if you'd like :)
With maintenance on Tuesday, September 25, we will be reverting the character deletion rules back to a 24 hour deletion state for level 40 and above, instant delete for characters 1-39.

Make sure any characters level 1-39 that are currently in a deletion state are characters you want deleted.

If you do not want them deleted, you need to cancel the deletion state prior to maintenance (September 25 at 8 AM PDT).

When the servers come back up, any characters that are left in the deleted state, or if you try to delete a character that's level 1-39 will be immediately deleted.
Happy Saturday TERA players!

We seem to be having issues with Civil Unrest (CU:Velika).

Our backend had a timing issue, which threw Civil Unrest out of whack. We are aware of the issue and working out all the parts it may have impacted. As of now, we want to make sure you know what we know, and will let you know any updates.

What we can confirm:
1. CU:Velika occurred at noon. According to our server datasheets, CU:Velika should occur at 1 pm PDT. We do not know why it has been occurring at 6pm PDT. We expect CU:Velika to occur next Saturday, September 29 at 1 pm.
2. Vanguard Request UI fails to list missions from 4 - 5 pm PDT. We believe this is due to the world servers being incorrectly set to GMT and dungeon servers being correctly set to UTC. Players that enter dungeon between 4 and 5 pm PDT appear to be the ones encountering this issue so we believe it is this server time desync that is causing the issue. This should be resolved on Tuesday during maintenance when world servers will be set to UTC.

[/b]Current issues we are working out:[/b]
- Despite the above timezone discrepancy, it seems that CU:V triggered six hours earlier than expected, rather than being one hour off as the issue would suggest. We are investigating this issue.
- Between 4 and 5 pm PDT, players in dungeons did see their Vanguard Requests, while players in the open world did not.
- The time change appears to require a server restart to take effect.
- There is a possibility of continued triggering 1 hour early until Tuesday maintenance, while others may be fixed as of 12:10 pm PDT today when our Operations Team fixed the server time.
- We are assuming that all systems may be +1 hour off due to the server time setting.

Pending issues
- The CU:Velika issue of towers being placed in previously restricted areas is a mystery. I can’t see how it is related to server times. This is not a new build or datasheets. Could be a time issue but it doesn’t make sense to me yet.

We’ll make sure to update you all on these and other remaining known post-server merger issues.
Starting Thursday, September 20 at 11 a.m. and continuing until Thursday, October 11 at 11 a.m. PDT, Shadow Sanguinary and Shadow Sanguinary (Hard) Vanguard Requests have token rewards that can be used to purchase various items.

You can exchange these tokens for a variety of sought-after items, including:

Master Blacksmith's Hammer: Used to refine Superior Brooches, drastically reducing the material requirement and gold cost to upgrade them.

Pink and Blonde Afros (7-day): Turn heads, and keep them turned, with these novelty wigs in two different colors!

Shadow Sanguinary requests award one token, and Shadow Sanguinary (Hard) requests award two. You can earn a maximum of three tokens per day by completing Vanguard Requests, no matter how often you complete the indicated dungeon.

Don't delay! The Shadow Sanguinary highlight event ends on October 11.
It's autumn everyone, and you know that that means!


That's right!!! Rootstock and Pond Faire have begun~ Starting Wednesday, September 19, until Thursday, November 1.

During these festivals, you'll learn to make a variety of potent consumable dishes that provide combat boosts, complete achievements, earn cool pets (like Pinkie, Rainie, or Rusty), or possibly even acquire the elusive Moonsilk Carpet mount.

Visit any Festival Guide for a teleport to the festival grounds.

Go get that grub!
Can I join in?

Velika = PvE...VE?????

Kaiator = PvP...KO????

I'm a sucker for clever abbreviations.
Welcome to your new server homes!

Moving is hard! We wanted to thank you for bearing with this server merge, and wanted to give you some nice autumn-themed gifts to make your new spot nice and cozy!

Note that in your Item Claim you'll receive the following:
- 1 x Unity Stole
- 3 x Friendly Feasts
- 1 x On Fire Effect consumable

You'll receive these gifts from us between Sept. 18 2:45 PM PDT - Sept. 25 11:59 PM PDT when you log into the game!

(These are only once per account and items are not tradeable)
Hi everyone!

Welcome to your new server homes!

With these new servers, there's a chance that things may not be exactly the same, or there may go awry. We're opening up this forum thread to share any issues so we can share them with Bluehole and our Support team.

We'll be updating these issues that you call out and give updates on how they're doing. Here are knowns things that may not be the same as they were before:

- Dreadspire is off, we will announce it's reopening soon with adjusted bonus loot tables.
- Fashion shop is still being set up.
- Making a new account: it can take up to 45 seconds to verify your account, please do not press the button repeadidly or it may cause an error (it's shy! Stop pokin' it!)

(Please note, any comments that are not about the topic will be removed)
We have gotten enough questions about character renames and the server merge that we felt a clarification of the process might be helpful.

The process is automated, and basically works like a flowchart:


We feel that overall play time is the fairest way to determine who gets to keep any given character name. After all, if you’ve put in a lot of work on your character “Fluffy.Bunny,” and someone else created their own “Fluffy.Bunny”—maybe in an attempt to “camp” the name—it wouldn’t be fair to you to give that player the name just because they logged in more recently.
Hi everyone!

I wrote in the other forum post pointing to this one. I've shared this with Bluehole!

However, if anyone is having this issue, I really hope you're sending in support tickets and sharing your issues so we can fix this!

Thanks again :)
Hi everyone!

I'm going to share this with Bluehole, however, if anyone is having this issue, I really hope you're sending in support tickets and sharing your issues so we can fix this!
Hi everyone!

Just to clarify, the expiration means that you won't be receiving FREE character slots once maintenance starts.

If you've logged in and received them, then you're fine.

Sorry for the confusion!
@TFMK3JDWE3 Here's the FAQ in case you have any other questions!
The TERA PC server merge happens Tuesday, September 18. To get you ready for the big day, follow these steps to make your post-merge life much smoother.
  • Claim eight (8) Additional Character Slots from Item Claim between Tuesday, September 12 and TBD on exact time when window will close (update will come tomorrow Sept 13).
  • The servers being merged are as follows:
    • PvP: Fey Forest and Mount Tyrannas
    • PvE: Celestial Hills, Ascension Valley, and Tempest Reach

Apply your Additional Character Slots to the server where you have the most characters, to accommodate your characters from other servers. We highly recommend that you increase your available character slots on one of the merging servers as close to the maximum of 20 as you can. If you are uncertain of how many slots you have, take a few minutes to create level 1 characters until you hit your server’s limit, note how many Additional Character Slots to use on that server, then delete the new characters.
  • Identify characters on any server that you no longer play or don’t need, save any important non-bound items and gold they might have, then delete them until the total number of active characters remaining on that server type (PvP or PvE) is equal to or less than your total available character slots you now have. You should try to avoid deleting any character you have spent money to outfit, level, or costume.
  • If you know you have a deleted character that you wish to keep, put in a support ticket immediately. Characters deleted prior to the merge cannot be restored following the merge.
  • Confirm that any guild you are a part of has more than two members. If a guild drops below two members for any reason—such as characters being removed during the merge—the guild will disband.
  • Retrieve any items you have listed with the Trade Broker.
  • Come up with several backup character names, in case any of your favorite names are already taken on your new server.
  • Clear your Parcel Post.

    Remember, the TERA PC server merge takes place on Tuesday, September 18—so make sure to complete these steps before then!

Hi everyone!

We wanted to let you all know as soon as the decision was made that the final verdict is that Celestial Hills will be merged with the other PVE servers.

Edited text from FAQ:
  • Mount Tyrannas and Fey Forest will merge to become a new (PVP65) server.
  • Ascension Valley, Celestial Hills and Tempest Reach will merge to become a new (PVE) server.

We will have an official News Post going out tomorrow morning (as previously posted) with details on how to receive your 8 character slots and stating that Celestial Hills will be added to the server merge.

Thank you all so much for your feedback.
Hi everyone,

Please note the following:

Free Character Slots
- Character Slots will be postponed to tomorrow morning at 11 AM
- You will be received 8 character slots in your item claim

Fate of CH
- The decision will be made before character slots given tomorrow
- We will do joint messaging for CH's fate and character slot information

Deleted Characters
- Deleted character info prior to the merge is not saved
- This means that if you delete your character before the merge, you will not be able to get that character back after the merge
- If you know you have a deleted character that you wish to keep, put in your support ticket NOW

Questions from Stream that were unanswered:
"Do we keep spots saved in travel journal?"
- Yes, those locations remain saved on the new Server.

"Do you lose your friends/friendship-bonds when you transfer?"
- Existing friends and friendship-bonds will remain, however please note that both friends and friendship-bonds can be effected by players needing to delete a character, in order to stay under their Account's Character Slot maximum on the merged server.

"If an entire guild is transferring and CH ends up not getting merged, are we getting screwed out of our guild level"
- If the players on CH leave their Guild and utilize the free Server Transfers, there would not be a way to keep the existing Guild Level of the CH Guild on the other Server these players choose to move to.
Thanks for this feedback! I'll make sure to share it with Bluehole :)

Ninja weapon skins make their triumphant return to the TERA Store—and are now available for every class in the game, including the brawler, valkyrie, gunner, and, naturally, the ninja!

Bloodshadow Weapon Skin smart boxes contain a permanent ninja-themed weapon skin for 1,295 EMP, or you could try your luck with a True Ultimate Power Weapon Box for only 195 EMP.

The True Ultimate Power Weapon Box is guaranteed to contain 400 Metamorphic Emblems, and may also contain a rare Nightfall weapon skin (via smart box), a ninja-themed accessory, dyad niveot structures, Golden or Silver Talents, Superior Noctenium Elixirs, Health Potions, Crafter's Cures, or additional Metamorphic Emblems.

Remember, for both of these items: Smart boxes automatically generate the corresponding equipment for your character when you open them.

Also returning to the store are the following boxes, all updated to offer something for every character class!
  • Bloodshadow Ninja Costume Box—a smart box containing a bloodshadow ninja costume.
  • Ultimate Power Accessory Box—containing one random ninja-themed accessory.
  • True Ultimate Elin Elite Box—a loot box guaranteed to contain 300 Metamorphic Emblems, and possibly also an elin elite ninja-themed costume or other ninja-themed accessories, dyad niveot structures, golden talents, more emblems, or other consumables.

I'd be happy to hear any suggestions of what you want to see next, or what you would like to do!

Hi everyone!

You will now all get to pick 3 talented artists to join the other 3 winners!

Vote HERE!

How this will work:
  • Everyone will get 3 votes
  • This group will exclude the winners that were announced on stream (August 24)

Hi there!

We should have an update about the server merge by the end of the week!

We'll be doing a Q&A stream on September 7th for it too :)
Hi there!

Have you created a support ticket for this?

I'll mention this to our team, but collecting examples of this happening through screenshots and such, hopefully we can get to the root of it.

Hi there!

Hi there @xXEruneXx,

I apologize for the miscommunication on my part. There were a few changes to the schedule, and the communication wasn't consistent.

To remedy this and to make sure those that added their submissions between that 12 pm - 12 am window will get to participate as well.

I'll be creating a forum post that will show all of the submissions (excluding the winners on the EME side) and a vote on googleforms.

Everyone will get 3 votes. Those with the top 3 votes will be added as the winners. Their reward will be equivalent to the EME rewards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

It'll start today (August 27) and end on Friday (August 31). Winners will be announced on stream September 7th, and there will be a news post to show all the winners as well, both EME and Community winners.

I'll also add that forum post with all of the submissions for everyone's enjoyment!

I'm aiming to complete everything by end of day today, so please have patience as I have PAX things and other things to do today.

I've followed up with Bluehole to ask about this issue. I'll let you know what they say.
Send @KitTeaCup a message if you figure out the answer!


Sorry about the confusion around the Leaderboard this week.

Due to your feedback, we found an issue with the Leaderboard display. You helped us catch the issue (but maybe not in the most timely manner).

The season reset date is currently set to Tuesday, August 14. The Leaderboard UI displays the season's "cycle" which is based on a 7 day period. Since our previous season started on a Thursday, the system displays the end date as a Thursday. We've notified Bluehole about the issue and we'll let you know about any changes in the future.

Apologies for any confusion, and thanks for your patience...and... of course for playing The Exiled Realms of Arborea!
Thanks for the feedback on the calendar everyone!

Hi there!

@KXRC9JMW74 It was not a joke.

@BiieL We'll have news coming soon! It'll be on the News & Announcements page when we're ready with all of the moving pieces we need to get in order.

What's that in the clouds? Why, it's the Guardians of the Sky update!

Promo page is here!
The infinity mask reward for rank 1 Pit of Petrax will be removed for season 1 due to an exploit.

The exploit is patched in v72 and the Infinity Mask will return as a Rank 1 reward.
We will be removing the summer festival tokens, Temple and Claret Medallions during maintenance on August 14.

Make sure you use them before you lose them!
We're finally at our last weekend of Manglemire! To celebrate your last run around the track, we're going to add another lap of loots to make the stakes a little more fun!

Every time a group completes Manglemire between August 9 –14, there is a chance for the entire group members to receive one of the following hyper-rare loot drops!

How are these drops so hyper-rare?
  • Each of the four Go-Karts will only drop for FIVE groups
  • Afterwards it's removed from the loot table for the remainder of the event
  • Individual players are eligible for more than one hyper-rare loot drop during the event

Check these Go-Karts out!
  • Riding Skill: Blue Go-Kart
  • Riding Skill: Red Go-Kart
  • Riding Skill: Green Go-Kart
  • Riding Skill: Yellow Go-Kart

Hi there!

Thanks so much for this thread. I've taken this feedback to share with Bluehole!
I believe you have to do 10 posts (I think that includes comments as well)

I look forward to hearing from you all and hear that answer for the puzzle!

Thanks for participating and asking good questions :)

I’ll read En Masse's favorite pieces on the August 24 Twitch Stream! I'll notify the writers that their piece has been chosen to be part of the stream, and will be given a choice whether they want it to be shared or not.

Hi there everyone!

To celebrate the start of the Priest leveling month, I thought it'd be nice for everyone to come together and share their favorite/best guides!

Feel free to share a guide that you've created, or one that you've followed when asking questions about Priests.

If it's a guide that's strong in one aspect, but weaker in another - worry not! It doesn't need to be perfect in every possible way. Share that thought and perhaps we can put one together for the end of the month to share with everyone!

Thanks and I look forward to seeing what you all share :)
This thread originally started out as speculating if Xigncode had an impact on player base, and thus forced our hand to merge servers, but has turned into a giant discussion about general frustrations with the game.

To respond to the original thread, to me, it seems like you are wanting questions answered about the server merge, such as why are we doing it, what does it look like for us, does it speak to the health/state of the game, et cetera. I've taken some of your questions and will make sure to pass them along to be included in our own news post that will be released soon (better if you can say the time frame, like a couple weeks).

Outside of server merges, I've noted @DL7MMWLJ3W's grievances that a few of you have acknowledged as an accurate portrayal of how you feel about the game.

EME wants the best in TERA for all of you. We can't make everyone happy, but we certainly try. Thank you for keeping this thread fairly civil. As long as it remains that way, it will remain open and free for further discussion.

THIS IS AMAZING! I'll definitely take this all into account.

It's a lot to take in, so please have patience with me and I'll work these aspects into the stream.
Not sure if you saw but here's a Manglemire UPDATE - WOOOO
Of course you all know Geletron - here's his lancer!
Johnny dreamed of being a lifeguard. As a kid he practiced swimming in the water near Velika and studied first aid with the local priest trainers. All his hard work eventually paid off when he was selected to be a lifeguard on beaches west of Castanica.

Working at the beach was a dream come true. Johnny spent his days watching out for tourists who wandered a little too far from Wahmel’s melon bash game or who got a little too aggressive with Chelton’s splash cannons. Occasionally he was called to provide some first aid to adventurers trying to gather horns for Dolme to carve.

One day, while Johnny was helping Langon build some sand castles, a giant crab appeared and started attacking the guests (this was despite the promises that there would be no crabs). Johnny moved his tactical belt bag to his hip and darted toward the nearest arms crate. He grabbed the lance and shield inside and made his way towards a rampaging crab. He was easily outmatched, but his efforts did allow many of the guests to get away.

Impressed by his courage, an officer of the Valkyon Federation recruited Johnny into the army and sent him to Velika to train. Soon he will be strong enough to protect his comrades as they take on new threats from northern Arun.
Meant it as a stream topic to talk about but thank you @JXE5356AKE
Hi @ShadowOfLight!!

I love your idea and would love to get something started! We can do a call to arms from players in the community who want to get involved and talk about the class being highlighted for the month. Awakening II is also a great idea.

I look forward to collaborating with you! :D

@C4YJGXD393 In regard to your comment, I'm open to feedback and ideas for streams. Feel free to start a constructive thread!
Another submission from our writers here at EME! (I seriously appreciate those who are keeping to the topic of the forum. If you want to talk about anything else or give feedback, please do it on another thread - thanks!)

Now...say hello to Em.Pale! (Ain't that clever as h*ck?)

Why this Name:
From the time I started playing MMOs when I modeled my first character after Emily the Strange, “Em” has been the first part of every character name I play. I already have a lancer named Emz, so wanted a special name for the lancer leveling month. The name came first, then her appearance.

Why this Race:
I love the Serena Williams-esque musculature of the amani female, she just looks powerful. All of my lancers are amani females.

Why this Class:
I played elemental mage classes in other MMOs, but found when I first started playing TERA that I was terrible at leading my targets with distance blasts. I’m also pretty bad at shooters. Yet I really loved the dodging / blocking aspect of TERA’s action combat. Somehow, I found my way to the lancer even though I never played tanks in other games. I loved it. I’ve played more lancers than any other class in TERA. There’s something really satisfying about thumping an enemy with a Stand Fast / Shield Counter combination.

Hi everyone!

We’ve heard it loud and clear from a lot of players about strongboxes, especially those in-game drops that require a key to open.

SO! Here's our answer to that - we've updated 2 and added three new ones!
This starts today and it'll go until Tuesday, June 31, you’ll save 15% off the normal price when purchasing strongbox keys in the TERA Store for PC! Whether you need just 1 key, or bundles of 5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 :)

Visit our website to get more information about the contents of the strongboxes! They made it look so clean!
