There is an issue with the event. I'm resetting it and should have it fixed in a few minutes. I'll update the news post afterwards.

@SingleBear tested it and found that this isn't an issue in our version of the build. Should be good to go next week.
The promo page revealed the outline of the new system. Spacecats is going to do the walkthrough tomorrow. Sorry for the confusion.

why does every game have this sort of person? i will never understand why people want to just get rid of past skins in a game.

Those masks weren't cosmetic by nature, they were achievement items, people worked for those masks, specially Exarch mask. They shouldn't give them away under any other circumstances, only doing alliance. I don't know why you people can't understand this. It is like I get a shinny Title that people got from doing VSH and HH from a 4K EMP loot box.

Rest assured, they will not be part of Kyra's. Those are trophies, not costumes.

Thanks, off-topic, We get more details today about gear progression, cause Arsenal page is kind updated, or we see more details with tomorrow stream?

Tomorrow's Twitch stream will have more of a walkthrough session, I believe. You'll see how things work and get a clearer picture of the new system.

The “Arsenal” update is right around the corner, bringing big changes to the gear progression in TERA. To help players prepare, this weekend we’re running a double enchanting event and highlighting the Demon’s Wheel!

Starting Friday, October 6 at 10 a.m. PDT, and running until maintenance on Tuesday, October 10, enchanting your weapons and armor to +12 is easier, thanks to our enchanting event!

Sadly, Demoros and his Demon’s Wheel are going away next week, so we wanted to give all the gamblers some extra shots at prizes. Winning the Demon’s Wheel dungeon gives you a chance to get:

Starglow costume loot box ×1
Obsidian Airwolf loot box
Angora Air loot box ×1
Dyeable SWAT Locker ×1
Superior Noctenium Elixir ×1

Take a run at the Demon's Wheel and see if the luck of the Sky Whale is on your side!

No, those won't start for a couple of weeks. Next week is all about the Arsenal update.
All Hail the Skywhale

I am really trying not to be rude but BHS too dam stupid, this system is the worst thing I have seen in any games. Absolutely wastes your time, you won you get a jackpot, so what? what about when I lose the game I get absolutely nothing, then what is the point of this crap and when I win I get nothing then what is the point here again?

I mean for how long our feedback gonna be ignored? PVP is dead and now killing BGs for this God awful system, Keep the jackpots, I won't waste my dam time with this crap.

That is what I got after 140 mins of playing Kumas and two Bonanza Box added to that, and now tell me if this is OK in your book and wasting your players time and slap them in the face is OK by BHS, then I think all players that are interested in PVP even a bit needs to reconsider playing Tera. I am seriously pissed at how unappreciated we are to BHS and EME, I mean all games making playing the game worth the players time, BHS just wastes your time and we have to go with it because they are so stupid at running their game? and in the end gotta get some overpriced cosmetic item as the reward for playing Tera.

I am done with BGs, and no I don't think I am the only one, look at your game it's a ghost town, everyone has a limit, NA community's limit is just coming and still we are being ignored and our feedback is nothing.

I can't go into too much detail here, but let me try to address a couple of things.

1. We understand that PvP is being harmed and that frustrates players. It isn't what we want either and we have tried to push back with Bluehole and get more positive development for PvP content. We have been arguing and advocating for improved BGs, leaderboards, and better rewards.
2. With the Arsenal update, all of the battleground rewards will get new components, items that will be useful to you no matter your gear or enchantment level.
3. There are more changes coming to PvP and battlegrounds. We can't put them on the roadmap yet, but they are coming.

Next week, we'll be releasing more information about the new gear progression system. I believe Spacecats is also doing a Q&A during his Twitch stream next Friday. No one wants players to have a frustrating experience and we are making changes. I hope you'll find v61 an improved experience.

Not sure if anyone caught this, but why does the event banner for kumas/iron battleground have one half showing gridiron?
Seems like a small mistake there or the designer not knowing the game, or is the event meant to be for Kumas and gridiron and the text of the post wrong?

The text is totally correct. Our graphic artist made a booboo and is being teased mercilessly about it.

Have fun in Kumas Royale and Iron Battleground this weekend.
We continue to press for an update on this. Alas, there's been no fix to the bug yet.
We are aware of the use of gems in the new enchanting system. For now, we want to see how battlegrounds perform after Arsenal launches. If highlighting becomes necessary, we'll probably do that, but we're going to hew more closely to the materials structure set forth by Bluehole. We may consider other rewards to help boost PvP engagement.
Congratulations to Heleh (CH) and Dark.Keyden.Eliza (FF) for winning the daily drawing! This is the final weekend to enter Mystel's Magical Mystery Mega-Drawing! Good luck in the hunt for the grand prizes!
We’re throwing some extra spice into the battlegrounds this weekend, highlighting Kumas Royale and Iron Battleground!

Starting at 10 a.m. PDT, Friday, September 29 and running through 8 a.m., Tuesday, October 3, victory in either battleground will earn you:

Talisman of Lakan ×1
Lakan's Banner ×2
Badges of Loyalty ×2
Enchanting Bonanza Box ×1
Practical Armor Armoire ×1

These items will drop at more generous rates.

The regular battlegrounds on the calendar are still highlighted, using their regular rewards. This is a special highlight so revisit Kumas Royale and Iron Battleground, mark some achievements off your list, and get rewarded for it!
Thank you so much for the extra 3s days!! I'm sure the people who queue it appreciate it since it tends to die with no highlighted bgs c:

You are most welcome. Your player council advocated for them!
Through October 9, battleground jackpots will start at 10 a.m. PDT and end at 9:59 a.m. PDT the following morning, when the highlighted battleground switches to the next one.

Here’s the schedule for October:

October Battleground Calendar

Talisman of Lakan ×1
Lakan's Banner ×2
Badges of Loyalty ×2
Enchanting Bonanza Box ×1
Tier 12 feedstock ×50

The October 10 maintenance launches the Arsenal update, which features a new gear and enchanting system that necessitates a change in battleground rewards. This new system also affects our PvP landscape, so to better track how the new system works, we will not be highlighting battlegrounds for the rest of October.

This isn’t to say there won’t be highlighted battlegrounds in the future, but for October at least, battleground rewards will be distributed normally.

It was running normal until yesterday's update.

There are several people with the same error in forum.

Then you should definitely submit a ticket and troubleshoot with customer service.
Kuronoe wrote: »
Is this what is causing the error that several people are having?

"Unable to download Manifest"

No. That is invariably a software conflict on people's machines. I linked to this guide in the other thread.
I checked support.enmasse.com and found this guide.

See if that helps you. If not, you should submit a ticket to have one of our customer support team walk through troubleshooting with you.
Our service provider will be conducting an emergency maintenance at one of our data centers starting at 8 p.m. PDT on 09/27/17 and ending at 2 a.m. PDT on 09/28/17.

During this maintenance you may experience intermittent service interruptions. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this maintenance."
AV is back up again. Sorry for the interruption!

@Halrath is boring.

It's true. More vanilla than vanilla.
Congratulations to Mk.Ultra (TR) and Moon.Poe (TR) for winning the daily drawings! Don't forget that Mystel's Magical Mystery Mega Drawing has only ONE week left!

The weekend winners and the weekly winner will be drawn on 9/25! Have a great weekend!

This weekend will still be quiet, but I've got events planned for the next two weekends. Stay tuned for more details.

I mean if you guys arent going to do an event then you should let the players do it.



@Spacecats all im asking for is someone to be there to monitor the event with me and we can start.

Spacecats has only really been responding to Closers stuff on that discord. Guess that beta or release or whatever is more of a priority, and they don't have other EME members to address TERA players.

edit: quoted twice by mistake

Spacecats has been crazy busy lately. I will put this in front of him, though, and see if he can help you out.

Give us something cool as reward by twitch code :D

Like WHAT?!

Quite a few people keep asking for your phone number...

We have spoken with Bluehole several times about the quality and types of cosmetics. While they often ask for input, they are not held to that and their art team is free to make items as they see fit. We have given suggestions several times this year and expect to see some of that come to fruition in the future.

The sad reality is that we (players and publisher) often speak about wanting more realistic or less overtly sexualized costumes, but I can stand in Velika all day long and not see anyone wearing the practical armor costumes.

I am happy to pass on player feedback to Bluehole. The TERA team speaks to them weekly and communicates daily. We are one region out of many, however, and Bluehole will develop the items they feel will sell the best across all territories. I do expect things will improve.

@Halrath

Dressing room is missing all costumes, the only one showing is the new costume added today in EME store.

:c

That's a minor client hiccup. Try opening the store first or logging all the way out, closing your client, and then logging back in.
There are available now in the TERA store.
The default selection of Iron Battleground is a bug and we've told Bluehole about it. They will have to make that change. For now, all you can do is uncheck it before you queue. Very sorry about that headache.
We spoke to Bluehole about this last night. They said it is not intentional behavior and that it sounds like a bug. They are investigating it.

It says Thursday now. Sorry for the confusion.
FWC is the BG of the day and it does have its rewards active.

There's an undocumented change where Iron Battleground is selected by default. Uncheck that and you'll have more success getting into other BGs.

The servers are up and open to players. The TERA store is currently down, but the platform team is on it.
The platform team is trying to get a few more things working before we let players into the game. I'm pushing for an ETA, but they can't give me one just yet. I will try to keep this updated. Sorry about that.

100% correct.

@Halrath @Spacecats

Can you either put it back or have a mix day?


You could do...
3x fraywind
2x Corsairs
2x grid and 3s


It would please a lot more people this way.

We're always taking feedback on PvP. This schedule is based on suggestions from the Player Council. We welcome opinions and can definitely mix things up in October.

It looks like that the gear revamp patch comes out next month in EU TERA:

https://en.tera.gameforge.com/news/detail/patch-59-03-demoros-roulette
Next up we’re working on Patch 61, which includes the Korean patches from 25th May to 27th July 2017. We are therefore skipping Patch 60 and will be releasing the new enchantment system in October, along with some challenging and interesting dungeons!

Has there been any news as to whether this is going to happen at the same time in NA TERA as I would assume it should be within a week or so of the EU one?

It's absolutely going to happen, probably in the timeframe you describe. We're working on it already and really excited about the upcoming changes. As for more details, you'll have to stay tuned, but there's a planned rollout of details and information.
They'll come in and out of our lives. They're removed from boxes right now, but will definitely come back again and the store will have new stuff.

I seriously hate events like this, because they just aren't for people like me. I hate raids, and I hate being told what I will and will not do, and when I will do it. With that being said, some people like the scheduled grind and following orders. To them, this was a great event. I think this event was fine for many, and doing these types of events once in awhile is great. However, please keep the other events as well.

I somewhat got sucked into the surprise event yesterday, but still missed out on a lot due to the lag. I really just should have stayed away. By time I got to the next channel, all were already dead. It was truly frustrating. Oh well, live and learn. Only benefit for me was the fact that plasma skins are super cheap now, and I don't have a bunch of junk in my inventory. Hurray!

Can we move onto Rootstock now?

Your Rootstock is my command. Coming up in just a few days.
You are most welcome!
This issue should now be resolved.
It is likely related to the server select issues. The operations team is looking into it right now.
We're checking on this issue. It appears to be intermittent, but we're talking with the operations team to see where the disconnect is.

btw did you ask Mystel's permission to perform these monetary actions on her behalf? has she approved?

Yeah. She and I are tight.
Sad that there are less days for CS this month.

We're trying a new calendar this month based on feedback received from the Player Council. We'll see how it works out for everyone.
We have looked into this issue and confirmed it is an external issue. We are working with the ISPs to resolve these and hope performance will improve soon.
It’s the end of the summer for TERA and we’re going back to school with a unique raffle opportunity for you!

Starting on Friday, September 1, and continuing through Saturday, September 30, each purchase made from the TERA Store counts as an entry into Mystel’s Magical Mystery Mega-Drawing. Only purchases made with EMP count, but each one enters you in the daily, weekly, and monthly drawings.

We’ll have two winners in each daily drawing. (”Daily” is defined as 12 a.m. PDT to 11:59 p.m. PDT). Daily drawings all take place the day after their sales, at approximately 3 p.m. PDT. (The drawings based on weekend sales will be held on the following Monday).

We’ll also hold weekly drawings each Monday, and these will include all the entries from the previous week.

Then, on Monday, October 2, we’ll hold the final drawing, with three grand prizes.

Standard En Masse Contest Rules apply.

The Daily Prizes are:

Volcanic Dragon Armor, helm, and wings
Unity Stole ×1
The Weekly Prize is a Royal Dragon pack, containing:

Royal Diamond Dragon ×1
Royal Ghost Dragon ×1
Royal Crimson Dragon ×1
Royal Iron Dragon ×1
Grand Prizes:

1st Prize—100,000 EMP
2nd Prize—50,000 EMP
3rd Prize—25,000 EMP
Remember that each purchase with EMP counts as an entry. Stacks of the same item also count as one entry. Subscriptions and EMP fill-ups do not count as entries.

Note: Because of the Labor Day holiday in the United States, the first drawings for September will be on Tuesday, September 5. We’ll do the first four daily drawings and the first weekly drawing. (It’s a short week, but still a week, so yay!)
This September, win daily jackpots in select battlegrounds!

The battleground jackpots will run from 10 a.m. PDT to 9:59 a.m. the following morning, when the highlighted battleground will switch.

Here’s the schedule for September:

September Battleground Calendar
Winning the battleground randomly earns you one of the following jackpots:

Talisman of Lakan ×1
Lakan's Scale ×2
Badge of Loyalty ×2
Enchanting Bonanza Box ×1
Tier 12 Feedstock ×50
It's on Tuesday the 5th. Fixed Seandynamite's post to clarify that.

KillSee you all there!

@Halrath, will spambots be dealt with too?

My personal nemeses, the spam bots, will soon rue their days...but it isn't part of this maintenance.
During today's maintenance, we deployed an update to TERA that is intended to address the recent exploits and hacks that have been abused by some players to circumvent intended design and negatively impact the gameplay experience of other players. As a side-effect however, the update will also render many other third-party tools/mods unusable.

Given the recent surge in malicious use of third-party tools, we feel that deploy of this fix is necessary in order to preserve the integrity of the game and is in the best interest of the larger TERA community. We recognize that some add-ons/mods enhance players’ experience with the game, so this is not a decision we made lightly.

Our goal is to prevent the use of software that can damage the health of the game by giving players an unfair advantage or creating an uneven playing field. We’ll continue to evaluate the use of third-party programs/mods on a case-by-case basis, using player reports and the way players use these tools as a guide. Given the severity of recent exploits, it’s more important than ever for honest players to report to us when they witness damaging or suspicious behaviors in-game. The more information we get from players, the better we’re able to relay that information to the developers at Bluehole so they can explore new methods for preventing further abuse.


The TERA Team at En Masse
We have a news post coming this morning. Until then, this thread has run its course.
This discussion seems to have run its course.
There are no plans for a double-drop event at this time. Thank you for the suggestion.
We are dealing with this, which is wildly unacceptable behavior. This topic is closed.
Hahaha! Awesome (and confusing) typo. The answer is level 50. I'll fix the news post. Thanks.

I really can't ban Seandynamite because he's my boss.

They are not out yet. Later this week.

The argons are tricking you. They are most definitely NOT level 60.
You will get SOMETHING out of the lootbox, but no one award is guaranteed.
We'll be posting the details for the sale on Wednesday!
We were aware of that possibility. Unfortunately, the event is targeted at the largest playerbase possible, so there will be some overlap. Sorry about that.
Apologies. They're in there now.

Attention, level 65 heroes! Argon invaders have been sighted in numerous zones! Federation troops are en route, but they can’t do it alone. They need your help!

From Tuesday, August 15 until Tuesday, September 5, look for argons in various zones throughout the world. Take down argon soldiers for a chance to win an Argon Loot Box, or tackle an argon boss for a guaranteed drop! And watch out for when the argons’ secret weapon—a legendary combatant from TERA’s past—appears each week, with even bigger rewards!

For more information, report to the Argon Assault promo page—and let’s win this fight!
We'll get this bug looked at.
No light to shed on this, but I've referred it to QA. See if our resident genius can help out.
@Halrath @Spacecats Quick question, but is the double XP for kills really on? I seem to level at the same pace as without it.

It is. Swearsies realsies.
Let's not post that, please.

We're sorry the restart didn't fix it. We're continuing to work with BHS to try and find a resolution for you.
We will restart TR at 11:30 a.m. PDT to try and free up the raid group. Hang in there.
We (first) thought you meant you were stuck inside the instance. Not stuck inside the raid group. I summoned everyone out this morning, then was told that you couldn't break your raid group up. I told them that we have no way to break up a raid through our tools and to submit a ticket to CS. It was a misunderstanding.

Players will only get one 1-day Elite Status voucher per account. That's it. No need to worry.
