Any elite player can make the purchase. And yes the item remains if your elite status lapses. The only gate to purchasing is it is ONLY available to elites status players and ONLY purchasable through the Featured Items/Daily Deals window.

Yes, Brumal looks like Astrafury, but it is the 1.5x Crit Power version instead of the 2.0x Crit Power version.
Look for an announcement next week about when the Talent System is being released.

Adding onto this, we are working with the developers of TERA to get information like this to the community in a more timely and accurate fashion. To discuss the talent system's arrival in the NA version at greater length, visit this thread: https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/28701/talent-system-and-na.

This thread is now locked as it's veered away from the original topic of discussion.
The talent system is also coming to the North American version of TERA. Currently, we don't have all the details in place other than it will be included in an upcoming update. As it approaches we will, of course, share all that we know with you.

This information was intended to be announced on a specific date and it appears there was some misunderstanding among TERA's publishers worldwide regarding the announcement date.

Gameforge is not outperforming us - they are ignoring announcement embargo dates that BHS has placed on all publishers - basically LEAKING the info that we are working to globally announce. Undermining us does not mean they know more than us; just that we are respecting the developer's wishes.

Cant wait to see everyone leave ch the second those transfers open up. Be realistic that is whats going to happen. Would certainly like to see these 'data driven observations' as they dont match what the playerbase is observing ingame.

We'll let the data decide what happens; THAT is realistic.

TERA’s server merge is fast approaching, and because this isn’t our first rodeo, we know you’ll want to know what’s happening to your characters, guilds, inventory, and more.

This list should answer most server merge questions, but as always, if you have an issue that’s not addressed here—and please: read the entire list first—you can always contact En Masse Customer Support. We will also take questions about the server merge on our Friday, September 7 Twitch stream.

Q: Which servers will merge?

Mount Tyrannas and Fey Forest will merge to become a new (PVP65) server.
Ascension Valley and Tempest Reach will merge to become a new (PVE) server.
Celestial Hills will remain its own separate (PVE) RP server.


Q: When will the servers be merged?

The official merge date is Tuesday, September 18. We’re going to start the process at 7 a.m. PDT. During this time, the servers will not be accessible.

Q: TL;DR - What can I do to prepare?

You are not required to do anything, but there are certainly some things we recommend you do to ensure you have a safe and easy merge:
· Delete (or transfer) any characters you don’t need. Character slots on the new servers will be limited to the highest number of slots unlocked on either of the merging servers. For example: If you have a total of 4 character slots on Fey Forest, and 9 on Mount Tyrannas, you will have a total of 9 slots on the new server.
· Having too many characters on a server will prevent you from entering the game with any character. Once the servers merge, you will be required to delete additional characters until you reach your new character limit.
· If you do choose to delete characters before the merge, make sure you save non-bound items and gold to your account bank before you delete them! Also, if at all possible, you should avoid deleting any character you have spent money to outfit, level, or costume.
· Start planning backup character names. While we wish we could promise your name will not be taken, you could abruptly find yourself needing to think of a new name.
· Make sure your guild has active players in it—and that the members don’t plan on deleting characters who are in the guild. Remember that guilds automatically disband if there are two members and one of them quits. If players delete too many guild characters, that could cause guilds to disband.
· Remove items you have listed on the trade broker before the merge. Items that you have listed on the trade broker will be merged to the new server. However, keep in mind that multiple servers' economies will be merged into one which may cause some price discrepancies.

Q: I play on multiple servers. How many character slots will I have on the new server?

The new servers will have characters slots equal to the highest number of slots on either of the merging servers (MT and FF, AV and TR). Again, players with characters on both merging servers will enter their new server with character slots equal to the highest number of character slots on either of the servers. (Remember: This is based on character slots, not actual characters.)
Example: If you have four character slots on Tempest Reach and two character slots on Ascension Valley, you’ll have four character slots on the new server (not six). If you have six characters for those four slots after the merge, you will need to remove two of them before you can start playing.
The week before the server merge, En Masse Entertainment will send every account additional character slots (amount TBD), as individual items in Item Claim. To maximize the number of available slots after the merge, use them on the server where you currently have the most characters. The maximum number of characters slots on any server is now 20, so plan accordingly.

Q: Will my extra characters be automatically deleted?

No characters will be automatically deleted during the merge. However, once the merge is complete, if you have more characters than available character slots, you will need to delete characters until you have enough available slots before you can play on that server. As a reminder, you must be logged into the game on a valid character before you can unlock an additional character slot. We recommend using all EME-granted character slots before the merge.
There is no time limit as to when you can delete the extra characters, but you will not be able to play on the merged server until you have done so. (NOTE: Characters only need to be in a deletion state, and not fully deleted, for you to enter the server. Characters level 39 or under are deleted immediately; characters level 40 and up take up to 24 hours to delete completely.)

Q: Will I need to change my name?

If two characters share the same name on merging servers, the character with the most play time will keep the contested name. If your character has less play time than another character with the same name, you will receive a tag indicating that your name must be changed (for example: “Best.Lancer.Na_1”). You will be prompted to choose a new name before logging into the server with that character.

Q: Will there be a name appeal process?

There will be no name appeal process for this server merge. We understand that no one wants to lose a character name. However, we feel that resolving name conflicts based on play time is the fairest method available.

Q: What if there are multiple guilds with the same name?

If your guild shares a name with another guild on the merged server, your guild will receive a tag indicating that your guild's name must be changed. Your guild will not be disbanded, and all memberships and guild information (ranks, level, etc) will be preserved during the merge.
Example: When the guild “Popori.Kingdom” from Ascension Valley and the guild “Popori.Kingdom” from Tempest Reach are merged onto the new server, the guild which was formed first will retain its name, and the newer one will need to change it.

Q: What happens to the GvG battle status?

The GvG status log will not be transferred.

Q: What will happen with guild wars in Civil Unrest: Velika?

The special highlights around your guild logo (gold, silver, and bronze wreaths) will not be transferred, nor will existing towers.

Q: Will I keep my friends list after the server merge?

Yes! All friends will remain unchanged. However, keep in mind that some of your friends might have changed names during the merge.

Q: What will happen to my broker items?

Your broker items will be preserved when the servers merge. Please keep in mind that merging the servers also merges the economies, so the price difference on items may be quite different. We recommend that you do not begin any new auctions before the server merge.
Items registered and sold (but awaiting confirmation) in the broker will be returned via Parcel Post. We highly recommend removing all items you have in the broker before the merge.

Q: What about my mail?

All of your mail and parcel deliveries will be preserved in the move. However, there is the possibility of messages and attached items disappearing if the sender has deleted their character. To avoid this eventuality, we recommend that you collect all items from your mailbox before the merge.

Q: Will my banks be merged?

The contents of your banks on the merging servers will be moved to a temporary bank on the new server. (Your account banks from different servers will only transfer if you have at least one character on the server where the bank items are stored.) As with character slots, the greater number of unlocked bank slots on either of the merging servers will be your total number of slots on the new server.
You will see a button at the bottom of your standard bank menu to access the temporary bank. The temporary bank has multiple tabs and tab pages to accommodate a very large number of bank items.
You can only withdraw items from the temporary bank; you cannot deposit items into the temporary bank. The temporary bank has no time limit, so you do not need to rush to make room in your standard bank.

Q: What happens to items in the bank which are bound to deleted characters?

Items which are bound to a character that gets deleted before the merge remain bound to this character. That means you will not be able to use them with another character (just as before the merge). If you try to equip them with the wrong character, these items will produce an error message which displays the character name to whom the items are bound. Creating a new character with this name will not make the items usable; they may only be equipped on the original character.We strongly recommend that you only delete characters without significant play time or purchased items.

Q: Will my wardrobe be merged?

Wardrobe Expansions and items stored in the wardrobe will be retained. The number of wardrobe slots you will have in the merged wardrobe is equal to the highest number unlocked on either merging server. If there is not enough space available for them in the merged wardrobe, up to four temporary wardrobe tabs will be added as needed. (Surplus items will be deleted.) You may only withdraw items from these temporary tabs, so we recommend that you confirm in advance whether the number of items in the wardrobe will exceed this limit.

Q: Will this affect the items in my pet’s Inventory?

The items in your pet’s inventory will not be affected by the merge. Remember that pets are bound to specific characters, so we strongly recommend that you not delete characters with Pet Pocket Inventory pets.

Q: Will this affect the items in my Item Claim?

The items in your Item Claim will not be affected by the merge.

Q: Will saved gear sets be retained in my character profile?

No, saved gear sets will not transfer over.

Q: What happens to BuddyUp Codes?

BuddyUp Codes will be reset following the server merge. However, new codes can be generated.
Friends that have already been accepted will still be visible in the list and will also receive their rewards.

Q: Will I lose my reputation/vanguard points after the merge?

No, you will not lose any reputation or other credits.

Q: Will I have to change my UI settings— skill hotkeys, window options, and so on—for each character?

Your settings for skill hotkeys, chained skills, shortcut key skills, etc. are all bound to your character and do not have to be set up again. However, UI settings such as the position of the skill bar, chat window, or the compass might need to be set again.

Q: Will special achievements be retained?

Yes, all achievements and titles will be retained.

Q: What happens to the PvP rankings?

The current state of the rankings will not be transferred.
Note: The current Battleground season (Season 2) will end on Thursday, September 13. Winners will be determined within a few days of the end of the season and will receive their reward by parcel post in game. A new season will start after the merge is complete.

Q: If I don’t want to be on a PVP Server, can I transfer to a PVE server instead, or transfer from PVE to PVP?

We hope that players will give these new servers a chance before deciding to transfer to a different one. However, we also understand that some players would prefer to be on a server with no open world PVP, while others will prefer there is open world PVP. For these players, there will be a free transfer period that allows characters to be moved from PVP to PVE, or from PVP to PVE starting on Thursday, September 6, and lasting until Monday, September 17.
Also, during this time, we will increase the maximum transferable gold from 50,000 to 100,000.
Please note that if you choose to transfer characters, your applied character slots, bank tabs, and wardrobe tabs will not be transferred.

Q: How can I contact Customer Support to get a refund on recently bought character slots?

Contact our Customer Support Team at: https://support.enmasse.com/tera and select the “2018 Server Merge” category.
The Support Ticket must contain the following information:
· Character name and server where you applied the character slot.
· The number of character slots you applied.
· An approximate date of purchase and when you applied the character slots.

Additional Info:

During the month of September, we'll be evaluating a majority of our recent events as a way to further enhance the overall experience for all players. This being the case, there will be no specific class-leveling event in September.


Hey folks, sorry for the miscommunication - I had to change the release date on these items to next Tuesday, August 21. They're on the way!
submit a support ticket - there are currently no maintenance issues that should block you from getting in.
they are live already in the Patch Notes subforum.
These items are available until September 4! Plus, Elite status players save 20% on all of these!

Hi all! Just wanted to drop a note to call out a few changes you'll notice today over the next few weeks.

TODAY
Daily Deals has been renamed to Featured Items. The daily timer window has been removed.
Featured Items will update on Tuesdays, every week. They will run for at least one week. Featured Items are curated based on the best deals or items we think deserve extra attention that week.
Featured Items MAY appear in both the TERA PC Store and Featured Items for the same price, or they may be exclusive to the Featured Items window.
Daily Deals will return for shorter periods (along with the timer) as limited-time flash sales. These limited-time periods will be announced beforehand.
It is intentional that some items will appear in both - we have found that some folks prefer to purchase items from the widow in game instead of the normal TERA PC Store so we want to offer some of the best things in both.
You may notice a few new little banners on items in the Featured Items window:
Out of the Vault - these items are items that are being brought back from retirement for a limited period of time
Last One's Free! - these items are a discounted so that you get one free (i.e., buy 4 get 1; buy 2 get 1, etc...)
No Risk; All Reward - these items are loot box chase items being directly sold

NEXT
I have heard the feedback that you want MORE IN THE STORE; so since Daily Deals will no longer be an always-on store feature, we will begin rotating items for "flights" in the store. The more curated store will offer more items in general, and especially so at times when they are seasonally appropriate as well as just keeping things fresh and updated.
This week we launch the past school uniforms in the TERA PC store for a three week period - these items will be removed from the store on Tuesday, September 4th.
Over the next few weeks we will be adding more items to the store in almost every category; curating the store and rotating the items where it makes most sense.

With more new dungeons releasing requiring more extravagant gear just to be even considered for entry, specific chase items like crit mounts and, to a lesser extent, BiS undies are becoming more and more of a requirement these days.

At this point, BHS/EME might as well add various boosters that can be obtained with EMP into the store. One that increases item XP, another that increases gold rewards from Vanguard requests, maybe make Master Additives direct-buy, and so on. Might as well go b*lls deep and save everyone's time, I say.

What about you guys?

Item XP boosts coming to the TERA PC store and to elite players next Thursday, August 16 - details next week after Guardians of the Sky goes live.
Hey all! Just wanted to put out a short note in case the rumor mill begins to spin out of control, but there will be news coming soon regarding the talent system (aka the EP system) and other regions. We don't have details that we can share yet, but as soon as we do, we'll fast track that info to YOU!
The reason we don't include it is because it is a variable on the server side. So while it may be 28 Crit / 14 Power, it is actually be determined on the server side and is not a hard coded value.

Can you guys add back all the loot boxes. Instead of forcing players to spend $50 on whatever particular day you decide to have anything good up?

Loot boxes will be cycled from time to time for those that want to try their luck with that instead of direct purchase. I was actually thinking about this the other day - perhaps when I post an item that is OUT of the loot box, I also can add the loot box in the daily deal for anyone interested in trying that method.

Alice - probably won't ever happen.

Hello Kitty - will NEVER happen.

Fair enough. i probably should had read up before posting, but at least i got some good info from this little slip of mine: Why all of the forums hate you @ElinUsagi

I still want the summer wrap. Is probably one of the most requested items here to be released into the daily deals.

Sorry, Summer Wrap won't be in Daily Deals for summer this year. Loot box only.
The bug has been submitted to BHS to fix - when we have a fix ready we'll deploy it. That's all the info we have right now.
So summer has finally arrived! And with it comes the swimwear, both new and seasons gone by... There are a few changes I wanted to call out and a schedule to lay down for you.

First off (and this change was made a little bit ago), all swimwear (as well as Maid costumes) have been/are having a Series name attached instead of a year. This is due to the fact that while it is true that these different sets launched in different years on PC, they are launching on different years on Console, and it just creates lots of confusion. So the years/series names for swimwear are:

2012 - Series 1
2013 - Series 2
2014 - Series 3
2016 - Series 4
2017 - Series 5
2018 - Series 6

Second up, a schedule for release (and where to get them):

Series 5 (last year's set) - Today, June 21, 2018 in the TERA PC store!
Series 6 (the new 2018 hotness!)- Thursday, June 28, 2018 in the TERA PC store!
Series 4 - Tuesday, July 3 until Tuesday, July 10 in the Daily Deals
Series 3 - Tuesday, July 10 until Tuesday, July 17 in the Daily Deals
Series 2 - Tuesday, July 17 until Tuesday, July 24 in the Daily Deals
Series 1 - Tuesday, July 24 until Tuesday, July 31 in the Daily Deals

Finally, items being sold via Daily Deals will ALL BE SOLD DIRECTLY. In other words, we'll take everything out of loot boxes and sell them without RNG (priced accordingly), but only sometime during that week. As there are limited spots available in Daily Deals UI, we will rotate the items from that series throughout the week, so some things will be available multiple times through that week. These items will not be available through the TERA PC store, only the Daily Deals, so log in and keep and eye on the deals to get what your heart has been longing for...
The system does not allow for bulk discounts - so in order to give higher discounts for higher quantities, they each have to be a separate product. Therefore until that is changed, there will be times when the same product will be on there with different prices, discounts, and quantities.

@KitTeaCup Celestial Costume and Angelic Wings when? :'(
Celestial Costumes and wings will be released next Thursday, June 21st.

I want sometimes offers of free items and costumes through codes like it's done in Closer and Kritika's Daily deals :3

You already get daily free items via the calendar, which Kritika and Closers don't have.
On Thursday, June 7, we will deploy the Hero’s Oath update, also known internally as V69, to our live servers. Included in this version of TERA on PC will be anti-cheat software known as XIGNCODE3 by a company called Wellbia. En Masse Entertainment, Bluehole, and Wellbia have a relationship going back several years – in other global regions, publishers have been using XIGNCODE3 for TERA for a few years already; and Closers, Kritika, and AVA (all EME titles) use XIGNCODE3 as well.

WHAT IS XIGNCODE3?
Most easily explained by Wellbia’s website here: https://www.wellbia.com/home/en/pages/xigncode3/
It is a gaming security solution aimed at detection of cheating and hacking in a game client.

WHO IS WELLBIA?
Again, best explained by their own website: https://www.wellbia.com/home/en/pages/about/
Wellbia is a reputable company that worked directly with the TERA PC Dev team for this integration to match their existing presence in Nexon’s and others’ versions of TERA.

WHO ELSE USES XIGNCODE3?
Players who play East to West games may recognize XIGNCODE3 from any of these games (or many others): https://www.wellbia.com/home/en/pages/xigncode3-reference/

WHAT HAPPENS IF XIGNCODE3 IS GIVING ME ISSUES WITH ACCESSING THE GAME?
As we have been using this product for our other games for years, our Customer Support team is prepared to handle helping you solve issues as they arise. However, you should be aware En Masse does not officially support the use of modified clients (for instance, the use of DPS meters) or editing of game client files, and going forward, you may have to remove these changes in order for XIGNCODE3 to allow you access to TERA PC.
After maintenance concludes this morning, when you log in you will see a new function in the welcome window: TERA Daily Deals!

What ARE Daily Deals? Simply put, they are 2-3 items for sale for 24 hours at a time. So at 10 AM Pacific time every day the window will refresh to show that day's items, which can be purchased directly through that window. Things are only purchasable for that price through that Daily Deals store window for that limited time!

What kind of stuff will be in Daily Deals? You'll find anything there - old items brought out of retirement for one day, discounted items, exclusive items, items brought out of loot boxes for direct sale, just lots of stuff. The only way to know is to log in and see!

I'll address a few of these things - and thanks for the feedback!

First, we shifted a few things to the forums and other methods of notification; we know that most players do NOT get their event information from the website (based off the traffic we get to the site, who is coming, how long they are staying, what they are looking at). I have asked the team to make sure we keep posting NEW types of events or promotions, or seasonal things on the website with news posts as well as all the other social methods (like forums, twitter, facebook, discord, Steam community hub, in game calendar, etc...). This includes product releases and sales as well as announcements about content updates or big news. I've basically relegated BIG NEWS to news posts.

Recurring events like dungeon highlights, battleground jackpots, vanguard bonuses, guardian legion bonuses, and the like will be shared via all the other channels we have, but will stay off the main page of the TERA site. Because the site is shared (and even though we have a filtering system), it will reduce confusion about these events that have now become pretty regular as to what platform they are happening on. Plus it becomes white noise at some point - just flooding news posts means people begin to ignore them and then more important info flies right by them. So keep looking for these types of events on the forums, twitter, facebook, discord, in game event calendar, Steam community hub, and all those kinds of places. It's not to say these events aren't imporant, they are just recurring, and platform specific. If we find that players really have no idea what's happening, we can re-evaluate this. For what it's worth, the launcher is still our number one communication method with PC players, and we are working on ideas on how to make information on there more useful and relevant for things exactly like this!

As for patch notes, the web team needed to prioritize what needed to be ported over from the old site to the new and the product team deprioritized the old patch notes from the site and decided that this was an opportunity to move them to a place that didn't require web team interaction at all. Remember even things like creating the patch notes page and getting it posted at a certain time requires resource coordination that we felt was better spent working on other things on the site (perhaps like making the launcher information more relevant like I listed above). Instead of getting writers to write them, then send them to QA for verification, then to the web team to stage, then to coordinate posting them along with links in the forums and all that, it made more sense to put them on the forum, where the discussion inevitably lead anyway. So all patch notes going forward are posted in the PC patch notes sub-forum!

As for the Godsfall update, this particular patch we will be posting the patch notes and promo page next week, so stay tuned!

Hope this clears some of this up; the TL:DR of it is that BIG NEWS will be news posts, and recurring/smaller news will be posted everywhere but the news posts.

Announcement coming in April!
I understand you are posting for advice from PC players but please either use the Discord or post to the PC players in the console forums.
Code hasn't been nerfed - it gives exactly what it has since I created it yesterday.
I would totally release them to you right now if I could.

So we can assume then that it is a regional contractual obligation because EU is releasing them on the 10th.

Most likely it's because it requires the Awakening update, and Gameforge is probably releasing that update on the 10th while our region gets it on the 17th. (JP TERA is getting it on the 11th. Don't see the date for RU yet, but based on when they released male brawler, probably they'll get this one on the 18th.)

This is correct. The items are tied to builds, and EU is releasing on the 10th, we release on the 17th.

I demand a rematch @seandynamite This time, make it even harder to find.

Oh trust me, this was just a pilot to see if anyone would even participate. Now that I know how participation is AND how good y'all are at finding it, next time will be significantly more difficult. Maybe. I can't underestimate your skills!
Hello!

I just hid a Sign of Day 24-sign in game on every server in the same spot. On this sign is a group code. That group code will give you stuff. You have 24 hours to find it from right...... now.

The code on the sign will expire at 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, April 1.

Be cool. Don't share the code. Help others with hints, but make them find it. After all, YOU went through all the work to find it! So can they.

My hints:
I can see the city of Highwatch from where I am. It sure is pretty. (Yes, that means it's in Highwatch)
While in the same location on every server, it's not necessarily in the same channel.

Good luck!

We need them NOW! :heart:

I would totally release them to you right now if I could.
For any planning purposes you may need it for, though, it won't be changing much this month. It will continue on the same pattern established in March; with April 1 starting with Corsairs Stronghold and rotating daily with Fraywind throughout the month.
We dont' have off for the holidays and it will be posted by EOD on Friday.
These will be available after Godsfall releases on April 17th.
EME does not control whether we have the talent system and the response we have gotten from BHS is that there is no plan to bring it to other territories, as I previously stated.
There are no plans still to bring the talent sytem to NA or EU.
I will answer the question re: more fashion coupon updates. The first, and arguably biggest update is now done and we are moving onto other projects/store/shop/elite status updates before returning to it. We will come back to do more but we have other more pressing things to move our focus to for the time being. We don’t currently have an ETA; I also just want to say thanks to @CobaltDragon for all the hard work he put in already on part 1!
Yes they are
There are two new items in the store today:
  • Stylist Select Hair Coupon (New Hairstyles) - Cannot be used by amani, popori, and baraka. Select the all-new style that's right for you! Use this coupon to select and change your hairstyle into a hairstyle suitable for your race and gender. Result cannot be reverted. For elin characters, modifies both hair and tail.
  • Premium Stylist Hair Coupon (Classic Hairstyles) - Cannot be used by baraka. Select the classic style that's right for you! Use this coupon to select and change your hairstyle into a hairstyle suitable for your race and gender. Result cannot be reverted. Cannot be used by baraka. For elin characters, modifies both hair and tail. For popori characters, modifies the tail only.
These are the non-RNG versions of the hairstyle coupons - you get the one you choose. HOWEVER please note that the UI still acts as though it's a roll. However you choose the one hairstyle you want, and that's the one it lands on. So though it shares the RNG interface, it will always land on the ONE hairstyle you can pick. The Stylist Select will give you access to the new hairstyles (the web store link above has links to videos of each race/gender combination's hairstyle examples) and the Premium Stylist will give you access to the hairstyles that were available when you created the character only.
Tomorrow - look for them after maintenance in the store.
We'll look into the message popup - not sure how that triggers so it'll take a bit of investigation. But sounds like 9 PM EDT was the winner winner chicken dinner.
The game is alive and well - don't believe the armchair data scientists that don't have any real information. I have access to the actual login numbers. Folks that say otherwise are just seeding unrest or making conjecture-based statements.
Hahahah not sure wth happened. I agree - I think Tikat is drunk on green beer. We'll sort it out this week and get him back on the wagon.
There were no adjustments on the server time to when Civil Unrest kicks off - so yes, like the dungeon resets/elite resets/etc.. it should kick off 1 hour later during daylight savings time. So as stated by @Ayi - 6 pm PDT/9 pm EDT
I was looking forward to this today! I want my Babydoll Sucker Punch hair :D Haha any idea when it will be released?

My goal is to have the non-RNG versions released next week. Planning around how the RNG versions could be distributed is ongoing. But basically, the non-RNG will be released to the cash shop, the RNG will be added as rewards in game via events or some other distribution occasionally.
Closing this thread now as the changes we wanted to make are complete. We will open up the conversation for further updates to the store when we time permits us to continue working on it. Please watch future patch notes for any additions/removals/changes that may occur.
I'll say this much - I was not comfortable releasing the RNG version of the boxes for sale - the delay in releasing them is directly tied to the decision to NOT release an RNG hairstyle coupon to the cash shop.

Explanations for new hairstyles (from Tera EU) :

Use the "Meruma's Hairstyle" or "Meruma's Magic Hairstyle" voucher. You can trade Fashion Coupons for them or buy them in the TERA Shop.
Now you will see a preview of the seven hairstyles that are available for your character.
Click "Confirm". A hairstyle will then be chosen at random and a voucher removed from your inventory.
Meruma's Hairstyle (available for Fashion Coupons) immediately applies the new hairstyle. From that moment, you will be restyled and will have this hairstyle until you repeat the process or use a voucher to change your appearance.
Meruma's Magic Hairstyle (available in the TERA Shop) allows you to choose whether you want to apply the new hairstyle immediately or keep your current one. The voucher is used in either case.


(https://en.tera.gameforge.com/news/detail/preview-the-male-brawler)

Why wasn't this included in the post? Why do we have to keep getting information from other publishers and from those who translate information from KTera?

But other than that, I hope the UI optimization and revitalized loot tables will spice things up.

We have not yet announced how we will be selling and/or distributing the hair coupons. This will be announced separately.
Starting at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, Daylight Savings Time kicks in once more, and so a few key TERA systems will restart at 5 a.m. PDT (rather than 4 a.m.) on and after March 12:
  • Calendar reward eligibility
  • Vanguard Initiative reset times
  • Guild quest reset times
  • Dungeon entry reset times
  • Elite Status Bar reset times

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward, too!

Also, please note that I tried to account for Daylight Savings Time when setting up the BG Jackpot Events, so times should remain the same on your clock and not shift.
I'm happy to see y'all liked them! We weren't sure if you would so we put them in the calendar to gauge the response. I'm sure you haven't seen the last of them.
> @JXE5356AKE said:
> Grid 2.0 comes with awakening, I doubt that is soon. Grid 1.0 was removed way earlier on the Korean timeline though, before RKE I believe. So we're likely getting it yoinked without notice.

The “Awakening” update comes in April to NA.
What @counterpoint said is true - this is not indicative of how we will be selling ALL items going forward. But it is a way we can sell some things, and I'm so happy that everyone is reacting positively to it.
NikuroTega wrote: »
Maybe now BHS can focus more on the second part of class awakening!

It was already on the roadmap in KR - so this has no effect on it.
I'll be perfectly frank regarding Gridiron and Champion's Skyring:

Gridiron is getting a revamp soon and we'll focus back on it when it's more relevant (in the hopes it is more relevant, that is)

Champion's Skyring has had too many issues with being exploited for the rewards (mainly via organized throwing of matches), so adding jackpots to them needs to happen on a very shortly timed and monitored basis going forward (if we want to be able to add better jackpots, like I believe this one to be). Feedback is being passed back to the devs to work on that, but for the meantime that's just how it will be. We will try to work on a way to do this (we actually are working on an idea already but requires a CM to help).
@seandynamite @CobaltDragon

Hey, guys, I KNOW you've been working hard. Just wondering about the FC update that was supposed to happen in February.

Thank you for your hard work. I know it's a tough job.

(Sort of sarcasm, sort of not.)

edIt: I'm a derp and missed the sticky, but I'll leave it up so you can both make fun of me.

I'll just let it live here forever.
For the month of March we are switching up some things.

First, we will only be setting 2 BGs on the calendar to swap out everyday. Fraywind Canyon and Corsairs' Stronghold (both versions) will rotate everyday as listed in this fancy Excel calendar:

Capture.PNG

Second, we are changing up what you can get in the jackpot. Jackpots in featured battlegrounds award one of the following:t:
  • Emeralds x5
  • Superior Etching Box x1
  • Champions Enchanting Box x1
  • Precious Gem Box x1
  • Dragon Scales x2

Battleground jackpots start at 10 a.m. PST and end at 9:59 a.m. PST the following morning, when the highlighted battleground switches to the next one. Remember, March 11th marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time here in NA, so that day, I adjusted the event to run so the times SHOULDN'T change.
I care. Question answered - thread closed.
Closing the thread as OP suggested - it's a good idea.

[...] Also, we need to identify if the one we have found is a permanent versions, a 30-Day versions, a 7-Day versions, a 3-Day versions, or 1-Day versions, to ensure we're adding the one that we intend.

I hope the one you guys intend, is the permanent one.
Please be the permanent one...

Yeah, lol.
It wouldn't be very nice to add in new skins / costumes that have never been seen before, just to make them Single Day versions with a large fashion coupon cost. ;)

What if we added the temporary ones at a lower cost on some of them though? How would folks feel about that?
I'd like to clear this up though - back in October I said we would commit to adding these to the product roadmap and accomplishing them. I did NOT give a solid timeline nor did I say they'd all be done in the next couple months. So it's been 4 months - we removed Fed bills and moved all the items to another shop because it was yet ANOTHER currency that had no intent or meaning behind it; we are finalizing what may be the first of a few updates to Fashion Coupon shop for today/tomorrow/Wednesday (not sure which day - all based on prioritized workload for our small team).

I understand it feels like an eternity and I can't speak for what happened from prior Product Managers or CMs, but THIS TEAM is working hard on it (and especially @CobaltDragon - he will be hailed as a hero when this is done).

I just wanted to give that update as well. My attempt at being transparent about what we are working on and what we plan on working on is backfiring in that there is an entitled expectation that this is ALL we are working on, which obviously couldn't be further from the truth. Regardless of what tools it takes to do it and how fast it is to enter the items (which, btw, is a horribly manual process - don't for a second think it's "easy" to do, even if it doesn't require a build).

Assumptions about how "easy" or "difficult" a task can be is based PURELY ON SPECULATION. Unless you have worked at EME and used the tools we use and walked a mile in our shoes, you probably shouldn't make assessments about how long something takes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again,

Patience, young padawans. All will be OK.
I for one am glad that they have gem boxes in the shop. I just wish they would keep them. ive always said that they need some sort of gold voucher in the cash shop so we can buy gold.

If gold is purchasable (rather than created in game by effort,) it destroys the economy. F2P games, at least healthy ones, are supported by all the players, not just the spenders.

If you remove the incentive for spenders to interact with free players, then the economy goes belly up very quickly. There is no incentive to bring cosmetics/vouchers/mounts into the game for other players. Free players who farm 4-5 hours cannot compete with a quick purchase of 100k gold. The final death knell is the actual injection of gold into the economy causing inflation.

Permanent Gem boxes would totally destructive for TERA.
The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

Oh so this ham-fisted idea was your brainchild? That makes so much more sense now.

LOL
While we are always watching CCU, we have not made any plans or announcements regarding server merges.
FWIW I have been conducting user interviews and research on how I could better make Elite useful by focusing on multiple player types (such as brand new players, leveling players, PvP players, dungeon players, etc...) and coming up with lists of things that focus on each player type. Unfortunately, many of the things are tied to what I can get from existing items/buffs (requesting new features/items takes quite a bit of time) but I will be looking to do a relaunch of TERA Elite Status soon. In the meantime, I think the consumables box and elite gift box probably can use some updating, along with a new mount. Mount changes are relatively easy, though I'll dispel that we will be giving dragons or phoenix (or flight suits for that matter - that has multiple requirements and makes it really difficult to give out) but there's a plethora of other mounts. And I agree with an earlier post, they need refreshes more often than they are getting now.

Oh good.

So judging by the fact that you said in game shops would be addressed in October, and it is now days from March and we still have had zero shops actually changed (and all that happened was it was moved, and then deleted,) we should expect elite box changes sometime in 2019 right?

I speak sarcasm too, so yes. Expect it in 2019, @CassandraTR - hold your breath while you're at it.

on a different note, @counterpoint , did eme ask the player council what their opinion was concerning gem boxes before they brought them out to the store? if so, what did you guys say about it?
Since there's no community rep for TERA PC right now, there's very little dialog with Player Council. There was no consultation on gem boxes.

The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

@Zoknahal how about you leave my daily & rep bonuses alone just cause you don't need them does not mean they do not help people who are smart enough to find a use for them. Only reason I pay for elite honestly, and for a mount elite should NOT be a flight suit or Dragon/Phoenix.

The only reason why someone would farm the old dailies, would be for the hats to be honest, hats that you can currently get through the fashion coupons, ever since they were introduced into the Federation Bill shop, and now since its going out of business, you can get them through the Fashion Coupons for the time being.

If you however are after the Black Panther mount, then elite would make it a lot faster to get because you need a specific item from each reputation vendor. But currently, its a 275 mount, and being realistic, with flying mounts around, and one you can get for free at lvl 65, no one would be interested in a ground mount with a 275 speed, only for the looks and maybe earning yourself some legacy item, which again, is not anymore, since the actual legacy version of that mount, had a 280 speed. I honestly do not see any use for the old jewelry that the old reputation merchants sell.

Elite has to have something attractive for players that wish to pay for it. Having outdated benefits that only work with outdated content, is not attractive for players seeking a QoL benefit for end game, such as doubling the rewards for Vanguards for being elite. In the long run, speaking from a business standpoint, EME would make more money by making elite more attractive to this specific part of the playerbase, rather than keeping it the way it is, and constantly getting threads like this to implore for a change on Elite.

I'm an idiot. Yes. 19 is correct. editing like it never happened.
Let me clear that up -

1. Similar to what we did with Eliin Gunner launch, you will NOT be able to gender/race change to the Male Brawler at launch. You will have to create a new character and level it. Similarly, that restriction will not be permanent.
2. Character slots are being raised to 19 - if you log in during the first week after the launch you will get a character slot for free (this is also like we did for Elin Gunner launch)
Added a new known issue - RSS feed on launcher looks crazy.
Maintenance is over! yay!
Yeah sorry updating the news post - it's 195. I had to change the price at the last minute and it didn't get communicated through to the staged news post.
Server status page will be unavailable until it gets ported into the new site.
Hello all!

Today our faithful web team has launched a new version of the TERA website, which includes features pertaining to the XBONE and PS4 console versions of the game (as well as offering a mobile responsive version of the site!). As such, I wanted to give you some info about the launch state of the site:
  • Product Roadmap will be brought back into the site (for the time being, I will create a new Discussion in the News and Announcements section that will get pinned and updated until we get a site version)
  • Server Status page will be brought back into the site
  • Older news posts - the site will launch with all the most recent news posts, but the entire list of old entries will not be imported into the new site format
  • Guides - some guides will be going away, and some will be getting facelifts over the coming months to make them more agnostic to platform version
  • Patch Notes - patch notes will be posted in a new TERA PC Patch Notes forum - the latest will be pinned as an announcement to the top
  • In-game Welcome Window - this page will be broken for a little bit while the web team rewrites the code to feed the page

New site probably means some bugs here and there, and our team will be bug-squashing as they work through that and other feature requests. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep up with it all!

-seandynamite
Hey all! We got a bit of snow up here in Seattle this morning and that delayed some folks from being able to start maintenance. As such, servers will be brought down at 9 a.m. PST (logins have already been turned off) and maintenance will be extended until 12 p.m. PST (though hopefully we'll still meet the original 11 a.m. PST time.
Yes we'll post a full event schedule prior to the build going live
We haven't received the final version of the build yet so I can't give you an definitive answer. HOWEVER, in our current version, both items (the elemental essence and the fragment item that awards emeralds) are in the loot table for the Hard Mode version.

When the patch notes publish before the build goes live you should get a definitive answer.
This thread is devolving into bashing EME and or BHS and I'll go ahead and close it now. @CobaltDragon @SingleBear and I are working on the shop update.

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."
