I don't get an optimization issues, I would say Trying out an open PvP server with many incentives on Guild Wars and PvEvP World Boss fights. I would also say a full expansion with 5 new levels and maybe a portal to another dimension to maybe the Argon dimension? I think something like 10 player Trials (something shorter than a raid could be fun.) Lastly, Housing with badass/cute decorations and furniture!

I'd love to see where the Argons really come from. I've always imagined it looked like what they turned Argonea into, but what if it was a completely abstract dimension. If all of TERA is a dream, what if Argon dimension is a nightmare?
Removed political reference from thread title.
Maintenance has ended. Servers and services are restored.

This is an ongoing forum topic and I've requested that the product team address the issue. We will be meeting with the Operations crew. Look for something soon.

In the meantime, AV is up and this thread has turned into bickering and personal attacks (some of which have been removed by forum moderation). Closing this thread.
11 pst already :cry:

It's 0920, actually. Sorry. Hang in there!

Those items still work. I purchased a couple of items from the Federation Bills vendor and a guildie purchase and used the strongbox keys. They all seemed to function as normal. As recently as last night. *confused and bewildered*
During an event there were items that said they were strongbox keys but did not open any strongboxes, as one example. The players who have those items which are basically useless are getting them removed and replaced with functioning strongbox keys/fed bills.


A small number of players received the wrong items from the Buddy Up program. This is remedying the problem by replacing Korean versions of the items (which don't work) with NA versions. Sorry for the confusion in the patch notes.
Okay. I think this discussion has stopped being productive. Thanks for the suggestion.

Furthermore I forgot to add @Spacecats if things weren't changed or touched, then can you explain why Lakan's Scales are in there when they weren't before? You said twice now that things weren't touched when players have posted getting them, including myself.

What he's referring to are the probabilities for the loot table (which I set up). Yes, the Tier 11 mats were swapped out for the Tier 12 mats, but that is literally the only change made. It is the same table that we have used since I began my tenure here. The Tier 12 mats were intended to be rare drops (and they are). Most of the time, you will earn dragon scales or feedstock.
The truth is that our Operations team is looking into the cause of the crashes. I think if more truth was known about why it went down today, the guys on the Ops crew would really appreciate it, but it's not a simple situation when it comes to TERA servers. For the time being, it's up and running again and they'll continue to monitor.

Consider the amount of issues AV has been having recently. Do you really think anyone in AV cares about about the context in quoted text?

Most people want the truth, not a random quote from a different thread concerning a different topic. It's one of the reasons that misrepresentation is listed in the forum rules & guidelines.
Ascension Valley is back up and running. People should be able to log back in now.
"It's mostly people out of NA having issues, which makes sense"

What part of this makes sense to any of you good folks at EME?

A server crash is different from lag. Please don't quote EME staff out of context. It gives people the wrong idea and muddles communication for people that are honestly looking for help.

I commented earlier about latency and how there are multiple ways your connection can be affected (including server performance on our end that has nothing to do with your ISP). Check it out if you're looking for clarification.
I'd suggest contacting Customer Support on this. They can check the status of the delivery and ensure you get founders status enabled.
We're aware of the outage on Ascension Valley. The server is in the process of being restarted. Our Operations team will investigate the cause of today's crash and continue to monitor other TERA servers.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

@Spacecats The noctenium problem has been here ever since Noctenium was introduced. It's not the main cause whatsoever. The way it works is, every time you consume ONE noctenium, the game will make a call to server to open your inventory, search through your inventory for noctenium, and minus ONE out of it. It was just the way the game is coded, and not a bug. Even though it shouldn't be that inefficient, we didn't have problem with noctenium since it was introduced long time ago.

Ah sure that makes sense, thanks. I can see that requiring more data to be sent/received. So it's not just a matter of more skills happening in a given length of time.

So with the move to noct potions, it seems like that issue wouldn't exist. Luckily I'm not the one that has to investigate it, just pass along the info :p
Fleett wrote: »
You're telling us that all of a sudden the whole TERA playerbase had a luck change? lol

Nobody's really saying what kind of loot they were getting before, just that they aren't happy with what they're getting now. Threads like this are always a callout for people who think they aren't getting enough loot. I'm not saying the loot shouldn't or couldn't be better, but believe me that the settings have gone completely untouched. The chances of each item appearing in the jackpot is the same as it was during all of May and the start of June. They just swapped Handkerchiefs, Envys, and Hypnos with Banners, Badges, and Talismans when the new armor set came out.

I'll suggest to the TERA product team that the rewards be increased from what they have been. If PvPers don't feel like they're being rewarded for their time in BGs, it's definitely something that should be looked at.
If it happens again, can you let us know which BAM you were hunting for the daily? Did it show the "Additional rewards" bar underneath the quest in the VG window?
The noctenium theory is interesting. I've passed it on to the team in hopes that it will help uncover some of the spiking issues people are experiencing. No doubt Gameforge has also passed it on to Bluehole since it was brought up in their forums.

As for those saying that EME doesn't acknowledge game latency, let me assure you guys that it's something we're aware of. There are definitely situations where every person in a party experience lag at the same time, and it has nothing to do with their ISP. That doesn't mean when a player is lagging that it can't be a mixture of many things. I know it's easier to look at lag as a single problem with a single fix, but it's not that easy. If you're playing from Estonia on a spotty wi-fi connection, a skywhale bumps your router, and then TERA servers hiccup all at once, you're going to have... a bad time. If you're playing from Chicago that's less likely to happen, but even local connections get lag especially during peak hours of the day.

(Playing from Australia on the other hand... flawless -_-)

What we've found is that when server-side issues occur it's typically a big spike. The whole encounter will freeze and skills will be unresponsive for everyone in the instance. There's been an increase of this lately and our Operations team is still investigating (along with Bluehole) to find out why that's the case.

When it's an ISP or server network issue, players typically see an overall increase in ping and more subtle delays in the response times of skills or inventory/menus opening. Sometimes they just disconnect completely. That can be caused by network congestion in Chicago (like if there's a DDoS attack) or any number of things closer to the player's home that will be outside of our control. That's why we ask for diag files that have routing information.

So when we say that there's no evidence of network congestion on the server side of things, please don't take that to mean that we don't believe you're lagging or that it's all in your head. It could still be game related. It could also be something outside of both your and our areas of control.

You can upload it to YouTube (or Instagram if it's short enough) and paste the link in the e-mail. Attaching a whole video to an e-mail is usually too big to send.
mm, i've been wondering if potential winners can choose not to have their stories posted at forums or read aloud during the stream?


Explain your situation when you submit your story and we can probably work something out. Like any contest we prefer to share the winning stories with the TERA community both because they're probably great entries, but also to confirm to everyone else that submitted work what the winning entry looked like. But exceptions can always be made.
The loot tables haven't been nerfed or changed in any way. They're the same as when they were set up. I'm afraid the only thing that's changed is your luck :/

That's more clear, yes. Thank you. Did the quests show you the bonus awards in the Vanguard Requests window? They're item-level dependent. The only reason you shouldn't get them is if the bonus award quest wasn't available to you.
They'll go on sale next week.
Forum logins will be disabled. If you are logged in before maintenance begins, you should be able to use the forums normally.

That said, I've changed our initial post to direct people to the @TERAOnline Twitter account instead. Just in case! ;D
It has been fixed! Thanks for calling that out.

Love is in the air, and a new contest has begun!

Between now and June 18 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, write and send a tale of true TERA love to FanArt@enmasse.com. If you make it a video, you might even get a little extra flowery prize!

The top winners of this contest will get themselves a set of the new wedding outfits arriving once the contest ends. Top placement will even get a dyeable set.

We'll be holding a PART 2 to this contest and giving away even more prizes once the PART 1 winners are decided and the love stories have been told. What could part 2 entail? Hmm... are those wedding bells we hear in the distance? <3 <3 <3

You can see the wedding outfits here.
It's not clear what the bug actually is. Can you please give me some more details?
That would be too brutal. Sorry.
The operations team is doing some migrations and updates across all of our services. It's not specific to any one game or event.
Good morning, TERA Community!

There will not be a maintenance on Tuesday, 6/13, but we will have an extended maintenance on 6/14.

Starting from 7 a.m. PDT on 06/14, TERA game servers, the TERA store, forums, and other account-related systems will be unavailable until the maintenance ends, at approximately 10 a.m. PDT. During maintenance, you will not be able to buy items through the web store, nor will you be able to buy EMP. Customer support will also be down during this period so you will not be able to submit tickets.

As soon as the operations team gives the all-clear, we will restore services as quickly as possible, but please note that the 10 a.m. window is an approximation. Should maintenance extend beyond 10 a.m. PDT, we’ll update this post.

We appreciate your patience! Thank you!

I really enjoyed the meeting Seandynamite. I like many of his ideas, especially about polling/connecting with the community when decisions are still in the formative stages.

That said, I just want to say, Spacecats--you in particular have done an amazing job of not letting your ego and/or hopes get in the way of a better decision when the community doesn't like something.

When the anniversary event didn't go...shall we say smoothly?...you listened, thought, then applied what you heard. Changing how tokens could be earned, prices, and possible PRIZES based on feedback you got.

You made a lot of people very happy in the end, and I think if SeanDynamite does as he seems to be saying, you two are going to make some sweet events together.

I'm really hopeful we can all start pulling together more to support the game.

I think we learned a couple things from Anniversary events in general that I think will help event planning as Seandynamite starts mapping things out for the coming months.

1) With all that we had planned, our slow roll-out method made it seem like we had less going on. If we'd put up a bigger news post at the start of May that listed every single thing we were planning to run for the next four weeks, I think it would have looked more spectacular from the start (even if we modified things after the fact). Part of the reason it was rolled out this way is because Velik's Fate was part of that content, but at the same time was contained in itself as an update.

2) The timing of Noesis' departure kind of borked and confused a couple things. I don't hold that against him because no time would ever have been an ideal time. He still did a TON of work surrounding the celebration. Hand-offs are just rough.

3) Quiz bowl hates me. It's so good though that once it's fixed by Bluehole I can't wait for you guys to see it.

Community managers don't make dungeon drop tables. Bluehole does. Sometimes Product Managers (like Seandynamite) can adjust them though.

Right now there are no additional details about TERA console to give other than the fact that it's on the way in 2017, bringing the world of TERA to console with a new UI and controller-based setup built from the ground up. The closed beta is still accepting sign-ups for both PS4 and Xbox: http://tera.enmasse.com/consolebeta

Edited title to remove callouts. If you have a question for a specific person please use direct messages.
Hey guys. We've checked with our Operations team to make sure there wasn't any network instability or server resource issues, and there are no indications of excessive load or memory usage. There's also no indication of mass player disconnects following the server outage yesterday (which was caused by an error unrelated to player traffic).

Lag is notoriously difficult to measure and pin down (especially when so much can cause internet latency). The recent reports that we've been getting from the player side indicate that people outside the US are having the most trouble, which makes sense.

Keep in mind that TERA is hosted in Chicago, so if you're connecting to the game from areas a great distance from there, your experience may be less than ideal or subject to interference that is often outside our control.
The CS team works very hard and tries to solve multiple issues at once whenever possible. If these tickets were both reports, the response to you would be the same and the CS agent simply closed them at the same time. I promise they didn't just dismiss the tickets out of hand.
There was no nerf. Same table as before, same odds. Sometimes, you eat the RNG, sometimes, the RNG eats you.
You might have already seen it, but I mentioned that a bug report has already been created, and since the response was sent in the other Thread, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread

As Spacecats has mentioned before in other various Forum Threads asking about TERA Console, although we would like to give you a fully accurate answer, we unfortunately don't have an official answer at this time, as there are still many factors that have yet to be determined.

When more details have been officially confirmed, there will most likely be a News Post announcement provided.
As a heads up, I took the information from the two recent Forum Threads on this and just filed a bug report.
You are most welcome.
The dragon scales have been added to VSHM. Sorry for the delay.
I reset all the dungeons for everyone. Have fun!

The TERA team is looking into this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
We have confirmed and are actively investigating an issue relating to elite hotbar reset times. We understand this issue has, regrettably, plagued some players for an extended length of time (but not everyone, which makes this particular issue hard to pin down). While we work towards a permanent solution we've decided to roll out the following item grants.

Elite players upon first-time login to the launcher from now until June 14 at 11:59 p.m. PDT will receive:

- 10x Elite Consumable Boxes
- 10x Elite Gift Boxes

Each day elite players log in to the launcher between now and June 14 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, they will also receive one each of the above boxes. The reset time for this daily delivery is at 4 p.m. PDT (the same as the daily EMP grant).

We're hoping to have this solved by next week's maintenance, but if it extends beyond that we may extend the above deliveries accordingly.

Thanks to all the players that have been working with us directly to help investigate this issue.

You may also want to try manually clearing the saved User Interface information that the server is holding onto for your Account.

You can do this by going into your Options, UI Settings menu and clicking these 3 buttons :

I suggest logging all the way out of the game and closing the launcher. Then start it back up and see if that does it. The launcher is a finicky little thing.

The problem appears to have been a platform-side issue, which has been resolved. In-game purchases should work fine for elite players now. Sorry about the delay!

To make it more clear, I think the missing statement people were looking for would be something like "While the old models will continue to work indefinitely, the new models will feature a brand new look and slightly improved stats." ...or something like that.

I think it's given that the old inners would work indefinitely. I like the suggestion of adding "improved stats", but it makes me wonder if we've ever released innerwear in the past that simply had a new appearance with identical stats?

Yes, though it was a bit messy, and perhaps due to a patch lag issue in the old days.

In 2015, the original 2014 models were first updated with new stats:

...and then the new 2015 models were released with the same stats as the updated ones:

The 2016 model was released with the new stats, and the older models were not updated (but kept in the store). And now in 2017, the new models have new stats, and all the previous models were removed.

(But again, part of what made this time different as well was that there was no forward visibility to K-TERA, which is where people usually get their info about the stats incoming gear would have. If it had been released on K-TERA first as in the past, the community would have already known about the stats and spread the word. Obviously that's not anyone's fault, but just a different dynamic this time around.)

Gotcha. That makes sense!

We're looking into this issue right now. It is definitely a little insectoid...

Purchases through the web store work fine. It's only purchases made via the in-game store that give this error, so that's a shopping work-around for you.
The wording in the news post was like so...
It’s time to close out our inventory of inner armor loot boxes to make room for the 2017 models coming in Lakan's Fury update.

...along with the June 6 date given for both the sale end date and release of Lakan's Fury. Old inner armors are being removed from the store right now, so this discount was your last chance to buy them.

Inner armors have pretty much become a yearly installment, with each year not only having new looks but also slightly improved stats. That doesn't make existing inner armor any worse. The old inner armor stats don't decrease or anything. So with a date and the confirmation that 2017 inner armors were coming today, I don't think there was any secrecy to this sale. I'm not sure how it could have been explained better in the news post, but if you have suggestions please feel free to give them, as it might help for next time TERA has a sale like this.
Hi everyone. Please let me first take a moment to introduce (or -re-introduce) myself. My name is Araya, and I rejoined En Masse about two weeks ago as the Manager of Customer Support. I was with En Masse as the CS Manager from before TERA launched through March of 2016. I jumped at the opportunity to rejoin this amazing company and wonderful people, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help make your gaming experience better.

At the moment, support for TERA is not where we need it to be. Wait times are FAR longer than acceptable. As of today, we have some tickets that are two weeks old. That’s not alright, and I know that very well. We’re working hard to bring the queue down and good progress has been made recently on that, but I also want to share some of the initiatives En Masse is working on to improve the quality of care that we provide:

- We are bringing on additional support staff. They are in training right now, and will begin contributing to the effort in a week or so. You’ll see some new GM names in the signature lines of ticket responses, and probably in-game from time to time as well.
- We are prioritizing “show-stopper” issues. This means tickets regarding issues that are preventing someone from even being able to get into the game are getting a higher priority than other issues, such as race change costume swaps. When we are more caught up we will go back to a first come / first serve basis for tickets, but for now this is what we decided made the most sense.
- We are streamlining the process of reporting issues in the game to the production staff as well as making sure we’re clear about the impact those issues are having on players.

We want every member of the TERA community, both new as well as veteran, to know that we’re committed to getting support back to the level that you expect from us. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Here's a GM event I held in June 2016. Eldermeow was a confused old man roaming TERA, asking players for assistance. Those who stopped were told broken memories from Eldermeow's past. The memories were hints at where and how to jog his memory. It turns out that clues were scattered across TERA from the old man's journeys, and that he'd slowly forgotten who he was.

As players located the clues, Eldermeow slowly regained his past and remembered that he was actually an ancient king. His crown had been stashed away within his pack the entire time!

Once Eldermeow's past was revealed, he once again donned his crown and rewarded his subjects with a special Kingly ceremony.

Yes for some reason being in a party can occasionally mess with the drops. We've even heard people say that their drop will appear in front of their party member instead of them. It's something that's difficult to reproduce because it doesn't happen every time.

If you're not experiencing spikes, but just an overall increase in latency, could you create a diag report and e-mail it to diag@enmasse.com please? It will give our Operations crew some information about where your ping is increasing en route to our servers.

To create the diag report, click the "Tools" option at the bottom of your TERA launcher and then "Click Here to Test Compuer". The text file will be created on your desktop afterward.

Just saw the announcement that EME is discontinuing the lootboxes for innerwear. Does anyone know if Bluehole has a change coming to how innerware works?

Or has EME decided to remove some of our RNG by letting us outright buy innerwear, maybe? (Or I suppose a new type of lootbox.)

I guess what I'm wondering is if this could be related to an upcoming game wide change or if this is only local.

That post was a little vague, so I updated it to be more clear. The patch notes will also shed some light on that when they're finally published.
Bluehole is building a new UI for TERA on consoles. They're designing it from the ground up with PS4 and XBox controller layouts in mind, so it'll be different from the controller setup you may have experienced in the PC version.
Granarkus was a really weird zone to do this in. It was fun seeing piled of BAMs spawned in saves and such, but I realize it made the fights really difficult.

There's a temporary hold on BAM invasions due to the server trouble, but in the future we'll try different zones and BAMs to spawn.

Am i the only one that started getting disconnected literally every 5 - 10 minutes? It started happening today

Is this just happening in TERA or have you noticed other games DCing? There has been an issue of ping spikes in-game lately, but disconnects every 5-10 minutes is unusual.
The only advise I can give here: Grow iron bark my friends. It will help if in this life :pleased:

Sorry to see you caught so much flak from party members. Especially when things get competitive, you'll always have irate or bossy players telling you to play better or do things the way they want. Growing thicker skin is one way to separate yourself from the random drama, and ignoring the random person that's flaming you often just ends up with them stopping and bothering someone else instead. Still... it's unfortunate that people take attitudes like this in online games (not just TERA, I don't think I've played any online game with chat where this isn't a thing).

The best thing you can do to make TERA a positive community is to try and stay positive yourself, focus on the parts of TERA you enjoy most, and ignore the haters.

Saying all of that... there's a line between jerkiness and harassment. If you ever feel like you are being truly harassed by another player, report them to customer support and include as much detail about the harassment as possible.

Glad it is extended, but what is up with waiting less than 2 hours before the end to let us know? Some of us have been rearranging schedules and such, because we were thinking the end was today.

There were other end of anniversary events we were considering, and we wanted to be 100% sure before announcing things. Sorry the extension announcement happened so last minute.
All the threads that were merged were about the same topic. Creating duplicate threads is against the forum rules, as are threads and comments discussing forum moderation since it has nothing to do with TERA and spiral quickly into drama (which is why I'm closing this thread).

If you're worried that a comment or discussion you've posted is at risk of being moderated, the best thing to do is go re-read the forum rules & guidelines you agree to when posting here. The goal is to have constructive and healthy discussion about the world of TERA and give feedback about the gameplay.
Like the announcement said before the BAM spawn event (rip), Blue Boxes HAVE BEEN EXTENDED!

They will now end on June 5 at 10 a.m. PDT along with the current dungeon highlight. There's a bit more to it, but a news post will go up shortly giving more details.
I found the cause!


I scrolled past too quickly and thought it was a hairy fried egg :p

Extend the event please @Spacecats :(

It had less than 8 minutes left. I know that's not the ideal way to end an event like this, but I don't think it's worth running again until we do a little investigating internally. Hopefully you guys still had some fun and landed yourselves some extra loot this morning.
Merged multiple threads about this topic. Please see the forum announcement regarding the server outages. We're aware and working to get servers back online. Sorry for the inconvenience and please try not to create duplicate threads.

Today's BAM spawn was kind of a trial run and we were monitoring server activity closely in case something like this happened. Looks like the trial wasn't a pass. Thankfully when servers started going down, the hour-long event had almost reached completion. We're going to be investigating the outages to try and determine why they crashed during this invasion event and how we can avoid it in the future (while still running events like this).

What is this? Why are there no official announcements

Still has expectation about EME communitcating events before happening :lol:

This was an impromptu event, sort of a random surprise. There is an announcement coming today with more planned events.
The jackpot has been changed to the following:
  • Talisman of Lakan ×1
  • Lakan's Banner ×2
  • Badge of Loyalty ×2
  • Dragon Scale ×3
  • Tier 12 Feedstock ×50

The news post has been changed to reflect this. Sorry for the confusion!
Here's the calendar for the June Battleground Jackpots.

Sweet, looking forward to adding those in. Nice job! I'll also include the noctenium weapon information.

Since we can be pretty sure those are unique, I doubt we need pictures.

@Spacecats , I've been meaning to ask. Should we only bother finding names for the skins that are in EUTera and KTera? Or would we be able to get more should we want them and get their info?

Some of the item names are the weapons themselves rather than the cosmetic weapon skins. While that's still a bit useful, what will really help are the names of the skins as they appear in other regions (non-English names from jTERA/kTERA are better than translations).

you hyped too much I got one for my cute Elin :p

PS: I loved this anniversary event, half price race change and I turned to that Cute Elin, Cute hat checked, Cute Mount checked, Cute 75% of costume on sale checked, Cute Uinty Stole checked, also add Cute wings too, she has it. So yeah, the most rewarding anniversary event by far.

Nice screenshot!
Sorry but the token cost of Unity Stoles is not going to change for this event. Aside from being an (arguably) rare item, it would be unfair to those who spent their final week tokens to get one. The Unity Stole is one of those coveted items in TERA that appears occasionally during events, and holds a level of prestige in the game because it typically requires some level of dedication to the game in order to land one.

If you're not able to get enough tokens for a stole before the anniversary celebration ends, there are sure to be more chances to get one in the future.
