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.
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!

We've mentioned in other locations that the Temple and Claret Medallions would be removed, most likely about a week after the Summer Festival ends on TERA Console.

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.

The original Post that hinted at what would be delivered : http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/whats-in-the-tera-item-pass
That section doesn't really apply to TERA Console, but I can put forward a request to create that type of section, specifically for TERA Console in these Forums.
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!
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!

What would you like to see other than the dragon scales and gold finger tokens?

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.

Thanks!
Bump posts are against the TERA forum rules. We are working with Bluehole to investigate the cause behind battleground matching not working as intended. When we have news to report, we will do so.

Closing this thread.

The original plan might have been to have our next Content Release occur today during a Maintenance, however the date was pushed. http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/announcing-the-guardians-of-the-sky-update

[Removing Forum Violation]
I came into this thread originally, just to provide a heads up of the information I had.
I have no involvement in this entire situation, but have passed along all of the Feedback everyone has provided.
Please do not violate our Forum's Rules through a Call Out direct at EME Staff or at me specifically.
What's that in the clouds? Why, it's the Guardians of the Sky update!

Promo page is here!
Another Thread was already started for this.

Another Thread was already started for this.
The Season is not ending today.
This Season ends when there is a new Content Update / Maintenance.
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!

August's item pass delivery went out this morning. You should have them!
It's just the default item for a smart box. Bluehole left it in on accident and I removed them from the boxes in today's maintenance. It won't hurt anything if you already have any.
EU players get their own sales and events and, in fact, there's one starting today.

Unfortunately, the Sony EU and Sony NA are separate entities...and act like it.

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 :)

All this weekend. TERA PC’s Daily Deals are featuring mammoth savings on our biggest ground mount yet—Tantor, the elephant that restores 1% of your max HP/MP every second!

This ground-shaking, account-bound mount is only available as a Daily Deal for 2995 EMP from now until Monday, August 6 at 10 a.m. PDT.

“Manglemore mocked a mob of mighty militants…”

It’s a Manglemire weekend, and you’re invited to match wits with the dreaded Manglemore!

Starting Thursday, August 2 at 11 a.m. PDT, and wrapping up Tuesday, August 7 at 10 a.m. PDT, once you complete the Manglemire dungeon you’ll receive not only the usual loot drops—Liquid Metal, Hypnotic Devices, Archdevan Surfactant, and so on—but additional items including Dungeon Delver coins, crafting materials, and Rally Cap cosmetics.

You’ll also earn bonus Vanguard Request rewards for completion, including the TERA Rewards Loot Boxes, more Dungeon Delver coins, and Dragon Scales.

]Remember, you've only got until maintenance on August 14 to conquer Manglemire...
DiaDWqTV4AANFgP.jpg
It appears that the Event had started prior to the Announced time ( just following Maintenance ), which lead to the Event ending early as well.
I brought this to the attention of both Halrath and Circuits, so in the off-chance it were to happen again, we'll try to notify players of the early end time, or push to extend the Event to the time originally stated.
Closing this thread for necromancy.
This week's swimsuits release tomorrow...along with a tiny bit of news.
If you watch our streams or read the text in game, you've seen TERA’s history and the role of its many gods.

Now it’s time to craft your own priestly tale! Share and create stories of anything related to priests-- you have creative freedom! Of course, keep it clean and SFW.

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.

Please note: if you disrespect any posters, or comment anything that is unrelated to the topic at hand, your comment will be deleted. This is a safe space for Role Playing and sharing stories. If you have criticisms you want to share, start another thread.
Share your experiences of what it means to play a priest in TERA. There’s no word limit or specific format—just post your personal story HERE!

I look forward to sharing your stories on stream! I will notify the writer that their story will be shared/read on stream on August 24, so if you're not comfortable with it being broadcast, you'll have a chance to speak up.

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 :)
I reported this feedback a little over a week ago, and we're having the Battleground Matching queue reviewed by the developer for any issues that may have occurred after a recent update, or check for ways to have the Battleground Matching queue be less restrictive, which would hopefully cause groups to form a lot faster.
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.

Thanks!
I am trying to get a "Dyeable" tag added to items on Console, the same way it is shown on TERA PC, which should make it easier to tell which ones are eligible.

Right now, the majority of items that can be dyed have the word "Dyeable" in the name, and you will see an option to press Triangle (PS4) or Y (Xbox) to bring up additional options, one of which will allow you to apply an Apothecary Dye.
The Special Emotes like Peace, Settle, and Kitchen Dance have not been released, as far as I know.
See the details here!

Will you stop dumbing down the console version of the game and instead give us the communication features that we’ve been begging for since basically day one?
That has been requested since Day One. I am very sorry that it's taking so long to get an overhaul on the communication features.
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.
Il y avait plusieurs discussions de forum discutant exactement le même sujet de questions de champ de bataille, ainsi les discussions ont été consolidées.
GvG and other Guild Features are coming, but at the moment, I don't have a confirmation of which Patch / Game Build it will be delivered in, so there isn't an exact date / ETA that can be provided.
I've recently received multiple reports about Fraywind Canyon and Corsair's Stronghold Battleground Matching having issues, and I've proceeded to bring it to the attention of the TERA Console Production Team and TERA's Developer.

It will be looked into, and hopefully addressed very soon.

Not sure if you saw but here's a Manglemire UPDATE - WOOOO
https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/28036/bonus-dungeon-highlight-manglemire#latest
Of course you all know Geletron - here's his lancer!
johnny-resolute.jpg
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.
Due to an unexpected interaction, we are removing the reduced enchanting costs because that setting prevents players from awakening eligible equipment.

We have escalated this issue to Bluehole. As soon as we're able to, we will implement the reduced costs. Sorry for the inconvenience!

July is located here : https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/27699/july-events

There was alot of complaints about the battleground coin reward and I guess nothing was done about it.
The feedback was passed along a while ago. Beyond that, I don't have additional details.
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?)
em.pale1.jpg

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!

In the interest of transparency and since no official response has been provided in this thread:

The exploit was recognized and fixed on July 9. It impacted only the XB-NA servers and was caused by a mis-configuration of the event (an error) and was not intentional (all other servers/regions could receive only one box per server).

Since then, we have identified all players that exploited the event and the most extreme offenders have had their accounts temporarily locked while we perform some clean-up and investigate the scope of impact on the economy of those servers.

Many of the most extreme offenders will remain banned as their actions were clearly against the spirit of the event and ultimately our rules of conduct:

"No exploiting: If you find a bug or glitch in the game that provides and unfair advantage, let us know about it instead of using the exploit for your own benefit."
@ZingoPingo Of course!

Just coincidental.
I had been going through and reading all the most recent Forum Threads, and just happen to see this one get created.
I mentioned an easy step to try, but also referenced a need to contact our Support if the issue continued.

I am aware of the issues being brought up within the other Forum Threads, and I am very active in passing that feedback to each individual Team, whether that be our Community Team, Production Team, Web Team, or on to Bluehole.
You may want to try doing a Repair in your TERA Launcher through the Tools Menu, if you have not already tried that.
If still no luck, you can open a Support Ticket for additional investigation.
This is a Lancer from one of our very own writers! (He helped with Claw & Order!) Here's the story of Mittens:

So I like playing my lancer. A lot. So much so that when it came time to launch TERA on Xbox One, I started recreating my characters from the PC version, in chronological order.
Starting with my lancer. Mister.Mittens and I have spent hundreds of hours roaming the continents, gathering, slaying, and generally looking cool. Recreating him on console guaranteed me another max-level character, and brought back a lot of fun memories from our early betas and in-house leveling events.
mittens1.jpg
I won’t lie, Mister.Mittens is the coolest cat that ever catted. He doesn’t duel, doesn’t have the best gear in the game, and even though I’ve played him more than any other character in my roster of 65s (barely—my gunner has a Champion Laurel, but is still a full day behind MM), he’s the one I’m least interested in changing. He’s so cool I burned a few thousand fashion coupons so that the majority of my characters on that server could dress the same way he does.
And speaking of cool cats…
mittens2.jpg
Yeah. I have one. I hunted everything in every zone, and unlocked the coolest mount in the game as soon as I could. When flying mounts came out, I got a couple for the stable, but this cat is 100% content to keep all four feet on the ground.

For this month’s lancer leveling event, my goal is to take a new lancer to 65 on every server, and I’ve already got two of them checked off. But none of them are Mister.Mittens, even though they’re using his skill bar and glyphs. When I’ve completed my set, I’m taking him on another world tour and killing any world boss I see.

Because we all know who’s the boss in this house…

It's Lancer month everyone! Here at En Masse, we take these months very seriously, and we level up the same classes with you.

Share your Lancer stories here! Whether it's why it's a meaty back story for your character, your favorite class, what your experience has been trying it out, or anything you want to share about your experiences, let's hear it! I'll be sharing some of our EME Lancer stories with you as well!

Take a picture of your character and share a little bit about it! Here, I'll start...

This is Definitely.not.Aman - my very first Lancer!
I never thought I'd like being a tank, I usually like very fast, agile type characters. However, I've actually come to like using this type as it's cool to be able to get right up to the BAMs and just give them the business and know I'll be able to keep going without dying! Very empowering.

Now a little about Definitely.not.Aman: Her name is the best (totally not biased or anything) and she's just your regular bad*ss. She loves all animals, especially anything that is fluffy. Her lance's name is Lancerlot which she loves it very much, as it was a gift passed down from her late father, who also liked little fluffy mammals. Her father used to own a farm where they rescued tiny fluffy animals in Two Oakes Ranch...when one day the most rabid giant purple Ovolith came and attacked, and ate up all of the fluffy animal friends that her and her family and devoted themselves to care for. Her father, in a rage, went out on a quest to kill this giant purple Ovolith and returned with it's head 6 months later. He quickly retired afterwards, and gifted Lancerlot to Definitely.not.Aman.

Thus promising herself that she would be the protector of all things cute and fluffy in all of her adventures.

Letters for each loading screen:

1
Listen up, keener. It’s time for you to learn the ins and outs of being a lancer, and I’m the aman best suited for the job. So pick up your lance, and get ready to earn these rewards!

2
You want to be the best? Then you must learn the true history of the lance, instead of worrying about accessories and pretty baubles. It’s not a happy story, but it’s one every aman knows. Amani lancers were the first to ever take the field, and we did so as slaves.

3
The “Golden Empire” of the giants is the darkest period in my people’s history. We didn’t fight by choice—shields and lances were forged onto our arms, and taken off only when we died. To honor the memory of the first lancers, never lay your weapons down until all enemies are dead.

4
Every blow struck for our giant overlords, every enemy attack blocked, was for one goal only. To one day cast off our chains and kill our supposed masters. To honor the courage of the first lancers, never run from a fight, and always remember you stand at the fore to protect others.

5
Combat is a lancer’s daily fare. Eat when you can, drink when you’re thirsty, always remembering that the slaves who came before you could do neither unless they returned victorious. We are the first, best, and last line of defense against injustice.

The seals the giants branded into our skins made us the perfect soldiers. Fierce, unstoppable, unwavering. Our lances never dipped, our shields never broke. We learned lessons from every battle, and became the giants’ elite, if unwilling, fighting force.
Davan, our greatest hero, appealed to the gods for his people’s release. Kaia was moved by his words, and sought a way to free the Amani people from the giants’ rule. She joined the elite lancers in disguise, studying both their fighting style, and the seals that bound them.

7
Kaia learned the secrets of the slaver’s seal, but rather than wrest us away from the giant’s control, she gave the knowledge to Lok. For three long years, she fought beside us while Lok’s favored artisans, Clan Castanic, found a way to free the amani people once and for all.

8
Lok and Clan Castanic delivered their creation to the amani, who freed themselves and threw down the last bastion of the giants’ power. Never again would amani lancers turn their weapons on the innocent, and ever since we’ve used the lessons of our enslavement to ensure freedom for all.

9
There are those who curse Lok for his later actions, but for the amani people, Lok and the crafters of Clan Castanic are among the truest friends we’ve ever known. When the castanics were cast down, we took them under our shields, and they taught us to forge unbreakable lances.

10
Kaia loved us when no-one else would. Lok helped us, though it ultimately cost his life. To honor their trust and sacrifices, we taught the world how to resist tyranny. To take up the shield is to vow never to stop fighting until Kaia welcomes you home.
In the years that followed our liberation, we crafted a mighty fortress to honor the shieldmaiden Kaia. With her help, we guard Northern Shara to this day, against any and all threats. She is our mistress, our mother, and our fiercest commander.

11
When the high elves came for the humans of Essenia, we were there, lances at the ready. When the argons came for us all, we stood fast while others fled. The high elves sent an army in response, but when they set shields and lances against the argons, we knew they’d chosen the right side.

12
Now we fight for the Valkyon Federation. On islands, in the clouds, in trenches and towers. No army is complete without a contingent of lancers, and no aman would dare stay behind when Kaia calls us to war.
We stand. We fight! We win!
Welcome, lancer, to the front lines.
Hey TERA fans, we’ve got another loading screen contest starting Sunday, July 1. This time out, we’re going to focus on the history of the lancer, as told by Primus Daarran, an amani drill instructor with a…unique conversational style.

Level up a lancer in July, and Daarran will send you history lessons as you hit certain leveling milestones! Turn his words into your art, and we’ll make some more history as the origins of the lancer will be depicted on screen for the very first time!

We’re looking for the best piece of art for each of Daarran’s lessons, 12 loading screens in total. Ideally, you’ll find that one part of the lancer’s story that really resonates with you for your entry—the simpler the better. Submit your potential loading screens (1920×1200.png) as an attachment to community@enmasse.com by Friday, July 20 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. (Standard contest rules apply.)

You must consent to our privacy policy by including the line "I accept your privacy policy" in the body of your emailed submission, or we are not allowed to keep or consider your submission. We'll only use your character name, server name, and email address for the sake of this contest.

I'll add the text in the next post :)

Hi @dragonmu12!

Thanks for the question, we've been updating building up to tomorrow's maintenance and the unveiling of Dreadspire 2.0 here: https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/27891/dreadspire-announcements#latest

I hope this answers your question!
Hi @CornishRex !

Thank you for your question, here's a forum post that SeanDynamite wrote up about the summer set up for the Daily Deals: https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/27543/summer-swimwear-sales-schedule#latest

The cycle for Daily Deals will go back to normal, unless we have a special event.

As for the seasonal idea, I think that's a wonderful idea and will push it over to SeanDynamite :)

I hope this answers your question!
Hey, everybody. I wanted to update you on the latest news about Dreadspire.

When Dreadspire goes live on Thursday, July 12, you’ll receive the Dreadspire Convergence buff while inside. Dreadspire Convergence increases Power by 33, Endurance by 23, Crit Factor by 5%, and skill damage by 5%.

We’ve also added three ways for you to earn additional Dreadspire runs:
1. Elite players receive one Dreadspire Instance Reset Scroll in their daily Elite Gift Box.
2. Dreadspire Instance Reset Scrolls are part of the Vanguard Request rewards for Antaroth's Abyss (Hard).
3. You can craft a Dreadspire Instance Reset Scroll with Scroll Scrap: Dreadspire drops from each Dreadspire floor. Combine five scraps to make a Dreadspire Instance Reset Scroll. These are limited time event items; these items will expire by September 18.
UPDATE! Apologies for missing this (thanks for catching that @Lynxzer )
Vanguard Request Weekly Events
Here are the bonus events for each week of July. Events start Tuesday, July 3 at 4 a.m. PDT, with each event running until the following Tuesday.
• Second Week, July 10–July 17: Double items from Vanguard Requests
• Third Week, July 17– July 24: Guardian Legion Bonus Item & Increased Player XP from Vanguard Requests
• Fourth Week, July 24–July 31: Increased Guild XP & Increased Item XP from Vanguard Requests

Thanks for your patience!
This is on me. No excuse. Sorry for dropping the ball on this one.
Here's some details about Thursday's Maintenance:
All of our titles will be undergoing maintenance from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM PDT.

The following will be unavailable:
* Forum logins
* Game logins

Please plan accordingly :)
Part 1:
Prepare yourselves for the hardest content in TERA thus far…
Dreadspire 2.0 is the biggest challenge to come to TERA...many asked for harder BAMs, bigger challenges and teeth grinding encounters. Bluehole designed Dreadspire 2.0 to test the best of the best.

The goal is to clear as many stages as your party can. But, clearing all ten stages is near impossible, even after months of runs. Few, if any, will make it that far, let alone defeat Shandra Manaya.

Dreadspire is a gauntlet where a party wipe means the end of your run. There are no party adjustments on the fly or second chances. You must be prepared going in and give it everything you’ve got.

Use these four days to prepare for your first attempt (of many!). Now is the time to come together and show us what you think the best combos, party distribution, and strategies could be. Who knows? Maybe what’s best for the first level isn’t the best for the second level, and you will discover that with trial and error.
If you’re looking for an easy win, this isn’t it. But if you’re looking to challenge and improve your group, the number of levels of Dreadspire will show you who’s getting there.

This is not a race that rewards the quickest to enter the dungeon; it’s a journey that tests you and your party’s skill and endurance. There is nothing else like it.

I will be posting more announcements during the week to give you more information about Dreadspire, so keep your eyes out :)
THESE ARE AMAZING! I hope you're taking part in our loading screen contest!!! :)
More items have now had an Elite Discount applied to them.

Hi @CobaltDragon Ever thought about merging servers
I know I've brought this up fairly recently, but I'll go ahead and bring it up again, mentioning all of the feedback players have provided.
I believe this is due to the fact that the current Innerarmor loot boxes are discounted for everyone right now, and there can only be one type of discount on a purchase at one time (The Elite price on them was set at 15% discount, but the current Sale provides a 30% discounted price).

The discounts on items in the Account Services section may have just been an oversight, so I'll request that be reviewed and have the appropriate discounts added.

Also, there will be a new set of Innerarmor being added on Thursday, which will have an included Elite Discounted price.
Thanks for those that came by and hung out on stream with me! Here's that promised image:

Hi everyone!

Apologies on our part for that miscommunication -- here's what they do: Brownie and Mouser both auto-loot and auto-gather for you, while Havana and Maltese have both of these skills and provide pet storage.

We got too excited cause they're so dang cute, thanks for asking what they do - it's been updated in the news post!

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.
