Whilst we're on the discussion of the news post...can you please stop backdating them? We all know you didn't post stuff on May 5th...thanks. >:) @Halrath

They're not backdated. I stage news posts, often in advance. The end.
Didn't realize I had to spell it out so explicity, but the ingots will be gone, too.
Good discussion. I took a look and you're (collectively) right. Will update the event during maintenance tomorrow morning. The t10 drops will go away and be replaced with t11.

Hopefully these will keep the queues popping. No word on un-equalized FWC gear yet?

But this is a good step in the right direction.

Wondering the same here regarding Fraywind? @Spacecats
In a stream not long ago there was word the test servers were not using EQ gear in FWC. Please update?

I have talked to BHS about it with Noesis. It's being worked on, but no definitive date for arrival.
The nice looking armor in the picture is that available in game somehow? Or is it cash shop only?

It is not yet available for sale. It will be later in the month.
All costume items will be available for sale later in the month. It's Day 1 of the anniversary event. Hang in there.

How do you get the wings?

You just log in. They'll be waiting for you in Item Claim. If you log in during the weekends, you'll earn an additional set each weekend, for a total of five.

Frankly, they had me with the anniversary wings. I never even imagined something like that becoming available. Everything else is gravy.

They are not temporary. They are permanent. And you can get five of them in May.

Can't wait to log in to check out these wings! Judging by the screenshot they look really nice, now you can be just like Mystel. :3

Semi related question about the gift exchange - "Some restrictions apply. Please reference the Fifth Anniversary—Celebration of Giving FAQ for more details and a full list of prizes." I can't find said FAQ. Or maybe I am blind. =3=

You are not blind. It wasn't there, but here it is. Sorry about that.

Ugh, Elin is tops. Can't believe Baraka beat Femani though. But with 43.9% male characters made how can that not at least open some eyes. Female characters aren't blowing the male characters out of the water in creation.

The very(!) low numbers of the Female Amani kind of balances the popularity of the Elin out.
Also, the Baraka are a male exclusive race, so I another free 600k for them.

Did hit me though, as a femani player, that the count of them is so low. :/

They are, unfortunately, rare. Think of female amani as Limited Edition.

Wow, 5 boxes are 70 bucks. Was going to give 10 to my friend (with the assumption that they would be double the price of a reg 150 loot box) for the pet but it would be 2995 to just buy outright.

Also I'm confused...it has a (fake?) regular price thats slashed out, so these where available in the cash shop before now at that higher slashed price? And now they're for sale, for this anniversary event.

Anyway I'd be interested to know if anyone got anything over the 1995 value of the box, then I might give it a go once or twice.

Don't take that out of context. Someone bet the wings weren't permanent. They are. That's what "pay up" refers to.

As part of the Fifth Anniversary celebration, we're highlighting battlegrounds all day. We hadn't updated the calendar to keep things under wraps until the anniversary announcement, but now that that is live, the calendar is up to date and can be viewed here.

In June, the battlegrounds will return to a scheduled set of hours, but in May, they're open all day! With the changes to v55, battlegrounds will not longer be power hours, but will award bonus items instead.

[edit: link fixed and mouse cursed]

@Halrath
Where's the schedule for dungeon highlights?

We're going to announce those each week, but we will announce them in advance.
We've told you Anniversary Tokens are coming, but not what they mean for you as players, so here we go!

Starting next Tuesday (5/9), highlighted dungeons, battlegrounds, and community events will drop Anniversary Tokens. Right-clicking on these tokens will open up an in-game shop like Spacecats tokens, where you can buy cool stuff.

The in-store inventory will change each week, so check them often!

From the TERA 5th ani page:
"Over the last five years, we’ve shown you a bewildering array of weapon and armor styles, allowing you to customize your look and play style however you like. But for our fifth anniversary, we’re stepping up our game with three new armor skins, including brand-new, fan-requested full helmets!

The Ironward, Dawn’s Guard, and Night’s Watch armor skins wrap you in full-metal protection that never goes out of style. Available in brushed steel, white with crimson accents, and black, this practical armor is the perfect look for all your adventuring needs. You can also accessorize with a full helm and an eye-catching shield."

It doesn't say how we can acquire them and they don't seem to be in the shop.

They are coming as part of the celebration, but won't go on sale until later in the month.

Guys please don't bicker with one another. -_-

Extended is probably a better word for it. In fact I'll request this change to avoid any further confusion over the event.

In response to last month's Power Hours, we saw players requesting a bigger window for earning bonus BG rewards. Typically Power Hours and Jackpots are only available during set times throughout the day in hopes of spurring more players to join the queue at specific times, but we decided to try this out with the hopes that more players jump into CS and grab themselves some loot.

Done, sir!

Hum, hopefully not just over the weekend? I have a weekend beach trip...though knowing this I might pack my laptop and log in for a few hours when the olds play skipbo., lol.

It will NOT be just one weekend. Breathe easy.
Could a petition for things actually be taken in consideration if there is a lot of players signing it and demanding the same thing ( also being sent out to BHS ? ) ? Just asking purely for information

Petitions are against the forum rules, but there is a suggestions thread that we do look at and do pass on to BHS.
This one's on me. My apologies. I've set up the power hours and we'll get the Google doc updated this week.

5/2 - Fraywind Canyon (morning one missed, later one is a go)
5/3 - Champion's Skyring
5/4 - Corsair's Stronghold

By then, we'll have the google doc updated.

Like I said, it was never forgotten till the 5th. Unless you think the 3rd anniversary started on the 5th in which case: http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/happy-third-anniversary-tera (dated April 30th)

TERA's 3rd Anniversary: (May 1st to May 4th Sale) May 5th to June 2nd

Which is also found here:
http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/third-anniversary-sale-for-tera

The event technically started May 1st, just like what I said.

I wasn't sure if you were backing what I said or trying to dispute(as you put the sales in brackets) it hence the "unless you think" part, just to cover my bases.

No, that's just me not considering a sale as a part of an event because... it's silly, you know? But despite my opinion, the sale is in-fact a part of the 3rd anniversary event, and that's why I left it in brackets instead of not putting it there at all. I apologize for the misunderstanding, I should of made it more clear.

Yeah, I know a sale is kind of "meh" when it comes to events. The important part there, at least imo, is the announcement they made(the one I linked earlier, form April 30th). I get the actual event starting a few days later because of maintenance and they probably didn't want to stop it before the end of May nor let it run for too long. Makes me really wonder if they didn't completely forget about it and that's the true cause of this delay. Even by the 3rd anniversary standards, we should have something to do by now...

Nothing has been forgotten. There is quite a lot planned, but they've duct-taped my mouth and so I can't share all the details. The fifth anniversary will happen, it will be glorious, and possibly there will be cake.
I love this little thread because we actually do try to plan events and awards based on perceived needs and desires. Thanks for putting it up there.

I loved the whole Island! It was so pretty and fun. Could there be a way to switch IoD back to the starting Island and make Stepstone Island into what Island of Dawn is now? xD And bring back the FULL Island of Dawn?! D: This stream-lined stuff is making Tera so boring and you don't get to experience the game anymore as a new player.

Probably not. Sorry. I appreciate your perspective, and I loved the old content, but games evolve. It would be fun to have a time-travel mode, though. I'll add it to my wishlist.

Right now, you should submit a ticket and CS will replace the missing tabs.
Sorry. I'd love to add them (dyeables rule!), but they're not an option.
My question is- did EME turn the servers down because of a sale on TERA Store?

No. The sales are not related to the servers. The maintenance is unrelated.
Closing before they can see the flames from Highwatch.
Okay. Final word on this thread which has devolved into personal attacks and other negativity.

The calendar is not set in stone. I put up one placeholder item while Spacecats, Noesis, and I plot. RELAX.

... because according to the latest Twitch stream, when asked about these two characters' whereabouts, the reply was that they are apparently never coming back because the development team thought they were boring or something. Particularily Elleon since he was not fortunate enough to at least be a sexy femstanic I guess.

I just think it's sad to see classic Tera characters such as Elleon and Jelena be treated with such nonchalance. Especially since Jelena is essentially THE POSTER GIRL FOR THE GAME (it's her portrait that is firmly planted in the middle, most attention-grabbing spot of the cover of my physical copy of Tera, and if you google Tera you find tons of official pictures/posters featuring a femstanic that look exactly like her!), and Elleon has been so heavily involved in the game's story (especially pre-Stepstone Isle tutorial) that it would just a be an insult to try and sweep them both under the rug like the game has done ever since that one lvl 58 quest.

Yeah I know, "lol story consistence in a free mmorpg lololol", but still.

Good to know. Did you go into your inventory after you claimed the Extra Slot item?
Okay. Just checked with CS. They said to check your inventory. Claiming an item from Item Claim does not actually "USE" the item. So, check your item and see if it's waiting for you there.

Hint: That's where mine was.

No. My birthday was yesterday. No sale.

It's certainly POSSIBLE there will be some sales during the valkyrie release, and similarly during May, our anniversary month.

Stay tuned.
Will the name be changed? Because backstep is no longer fixed to backstepping, so..
Will they call it 'evasive' step? Or 'don't hit me plox' step?
:pleased:

No. If you don't aim in a specific direction, the skill still backsteps by default.
I like the change but I have become so accustomed to the way it is now that this will be an adjustment for sure.

It's really not. I found it to be a very natural transition on my priest. You'll love it.
This means, you will only get the box if you hit lvl 2 by April 30th. Then the system does not send out boxes anymore. Once you have the box, you can level as slow as possible.

I even have one of the old leveling boxes on one of my characters.

This is correct.

@Spacecats, @Noesis, @Halrath

So it was mentioned in the EU patch notes as a "Known issue" that you could not use Volcanic, Obsidian, or Glacial weapon skins on the Valkyrie just yet. Since we have to wait longer then EU for the class to come out, will we get to use the weapon skins on our Valkyrie when it does come out next week? I know many people have these skins saved including myself, and it would be quite disappointing to not level a Valkyrie while not being able to wear the weapon skin.


So will these skins be usable on release date or not?

They should be usable on the release date. Go decorate your pretty little valkyrie.
Ops reports that instance matching should be working now. One of the servers just wouldn't talk to the others, but it went to couples counseling and is communicating in a meaningful fashion now.

Because of the headache this caused, we'll extend tonight's power hours by 2 hours (4pm-12am PDT).
This happens sometimes. X-IM / X-BG bugs out for some reason and either fixes itself, by requeueing or Dev Ops working their magic.
* X is because it's cross-server.

You are correct. Ops is completing the ritual right now...
