Did you actually spam messages? It automatically times people out for that kind of stuff :p
There are no events planned beyond the Wintera Snowfield battleground. We looked into re-enabling Fat and Tiny Santas, but it appears to be no longer be supported (at least from what we could tell).

can we please get a straight answer on if there will ever be a new class that isn't gender locked?

(and none of this "buy costumes and maybe..." or "we sympathize" a simple yes or no answer will suffice.)

I'll actually tackle that one because it's something Sam Kim (our CEO) has said publicly. What you're asking is something we can never give a definitive answer for as TERA's publisher. The reason is because we aren't the ones responsible for creating new content for TERA. We work with Bluehole when it comes to suggesting and giving feedback on things like new classes, items, and other content. Ultimately they are the developers, though, and a yes or no answer would need to come from them. On top of that... when it comes to future content, TERA has many years ahead of it. The content will keep coming for as long as there are players to enjoy it.

If there's a class coming in the future it's impossible for even Bluehole to know what it will be like until it's time to plan and create that class. There aren't any hard policies in place like "this class must be this gender!" Each class is approached as its own development project.
Yes, you can send them to anyone, even the same person repeatedly.
Hi everyone,

The compensation for the network outage events will be beginning this morning at 10 a.m. PST, but there was a small hitch we discovered this morning that will change the way we distribute the Elite Time.

We will be granting 15 days of Elite Status to ALL players who log in between Friday December 16 at 10 a.m. PST and Friday December 23 at 10 a.m. PST.

The additional 15 days of Elite Status for our Elite Players will be granted to Elite Players who log in between January 7 at 10 a.m. PST and January 14 at 10 a.m. PST.

This change is a result of the way our login rewards system works. If we were to stack the two deliveries (for non-Elite and Elite Players) to run at the same time, a non-Elite player could log in, get 15 days of elite, re-login as an Elite Player, and then get an additional 15 days of status.

I apologize for the last minute change in plans, but I believe this shouldn't directly impact the spirit of the compensation delivery.

The news post has also been updated to reflect these changes.

Happy Friday!

So let me get this straight: We elite players will pretty much have a free month of elite? no charges applied?

The way it should work is:

1) If you're already Elite when you log in during the redemption period, an additional 30 days will bumped onto the end of your current subscription. (This should apply even to people who used vouchers.)

2) If you're not Elite when you log in during the redemption period, you will immediately become Elite for 15 days. (You may have to log out and back in for it to take effect.)

Correct :)
Names matter! so much!

As for my PC build, it's a pretty old system at this point. Once upon a time I got a chance to splurge a bit, so I went for a watercooled maingear with SLI'd Nvidia GTX somethingorothers. I replaced those two cards with a ... I'm going to say 980? a year and a half ago or somesuch. I'm hankering to replace the GPU again, but we'll see. The big win for my PC setup is that after I sold my old monitor when I thought I was moving (don't ask), I was using a 1080p tv for about 6 months. Now I'm using a nice curved monitor that lets my elder eyes see things more readily. I love my mechanical keyboard though, even if it's super noisy.

I'll see if I can get a shot of my desk at home and put it in the thread, but honestly,it's really dull to look at. a black slab of a tower, a monitor, a keyboard, and some books & notepads. With 3 cats, I can't leave a lot of things out lying around, or they wind up lying around ... on the floor.

And yes, Roukanken has it right: Azathoth and Nyarlathotep are originally the creations of HP Lovecraft, and are where I got the names from.

And to not leave Azathoth out of the introductions:

Welcome Noesis, TERA's new Product Manager! We're so happy to have him onboard. Time to celebrate, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


.

... alright, that's enough kissy kissy. Time to get serious. I'm going to grill this new guy on the air and find out what he's made of. Where's the Feedstock at? Where are Etching components at? How long is it going to take to make FWC unequalized, and then equalize it again, then UNequalize it again? Where's alice dress? When the [filtered] is Canyon Clash (oh [filtered] wait, that's the question I've been avoiding). I've been watching Noesis very closely over the last couple weeks. Very closely. And I believe he alone knows the answers the TERA community seeks. It's just a matter of applying the right amount of pressure in the appropriate places.

The show begins at 3 p.m. PST on the En Masse Entertainment Twitch channel. Join for item raffles and glory.

Welcome to TERA Neosis.
Just giving you a heads up you'll be hearing a lot of complaints and rarely any thank yous.
What's annoyed you the most during your time leveling in TERA?

I expect I'll get thank yous sometimes, and there will be lots of forum posts about all sorts of things. It comes with the job. But on to your question: The thing that annoyed me the most while leveling in TERA was outlevelling the story quests. I was in my groove, trucking through story quests, and then hitting the anchor quest at the end of a long chain that ended in a dungeon, so I'd hit up dungeon finder, get a group, finish my quests in the dungeon, and start the next story quest chain. But I hit one where I outleveled the dungeon just before I got the dungeon quest, and then I couldn't use dungeon finder to get into the dungeon, and my gunner wasn't stronk enough to solo the dungeon herself, so I had to walk away.

Then I found out that the 'optimal' way to level is just to queue for dungeons. I'm bound and determined to just work through story quests, because I enjoy the ride and getting to see the world. Plus since my life tends to lend itself to short windows of gaming, or long windows with possible breaks where I have to get up at a moment's notice, doing 5-mans is tough for me to do, because I hate to afk and ruin other people's fun.
WELCOME NOESIS. Our new TERA Product Manager has been hard at work over the last few weeks, ramping up, learning the ins and outs of TERA operations. I am 100% positive that TERA is in excellent hands!

I'll have Noesis on the air tomorrow during the weekly TERA Twitch stream so you can see him with your own eyeballs. If you've got super secret questions you want him to answer during the show, PM them to me ;D
RIP Denommenator.

But seriously, Noesis has proven to be extremely capable in his short time here thus far. I am confident that TERA is in good hands.

We'll be shipping a build together early next year, after which I'll hand off the reins.
FIRST!!!!!

Banned.
FIRST!!!!!
I’m Michael, aka Noesis, the new Product Manager for TERA. I’ll be taking over early in the new year when Denommenator hands over the reins. Before you ask, the title we used to use at En Masse was ‘Producer’, but we’ve changed it to ‘Product Manager’ for a bunch of reasons I can talk about if you’re really interested. But the TL;DR is I’m the one who is responsible for making TERA awesome and keeping things rolling and unsticking things when they get stuck. On to the gaming cred, because I’m sure you’re all wondering about the new guy with the title “Product Manager” and how much of a gamer I could possibly be.

  • I used to play on MUDs via telnet back in the late 80s and early 90s, including one called Tsunami.
  • My first real MMO was Everquest, which I played in Vanilla, then did small group content in Kunark, followed by endgame raiding in the Scars of Velious expansion. My claim to shame is having camped the Ancient Cyclops in the Ocean of Tears for 18 hours straight to get the Ancient Cyclops Ring for the JBoots Quest. I still have that warrior …
  • The games I play the most right now in my free time that aren’t MMOs are the Soulsborne games. Dark Souls, Bloodborne, etc. I’ll talk about organic vs. mechanical difficulty and game design until you get bored.
  • My first ever computer RPG I played was Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord for the Apple //e. I still have the box, the disks, and the Apple //e. Last time I plugged it in, it still worked.

When it comes to TERA I will admit to being a bit of a noobasaurus rex. With the various holidays coming and going, and getting up to speed on all things TERA behind the scenes, I haven’t had a ton of time, but I do play, and I currently have one mid 60s Gunner on Tempest Reach, and I try to carve out time to play every weekend. I have been working through the questline in Spring Valley, but I’m most excited to go back once I hit the cap and try to solo some of the pre-60 storyline dungeons. My goal is to level up a few different characters and see if I prefer DPS, Tanking, or Healing. I’ve been all 3 in previous MMOs, but usually gravitated towards the healer role. Something to do with staring at health bars and making sure nobody tipped over…

That said, I’m having more fun leveling up and running through dungeons in TERA than I’ve had in an MMO in years. I am very excited to be a part of working on an MMO after literal decades of time spent playing different games.

Now on to some various facts about me that will make me appear to be a genuine human, and not a wolf in a human costume. First, let me sit upright in this chair with my vertical human spine and use my 10 fingers to type …

  • Every year I travel to Portland OR for the HP Lovecraft Film Festival.
  • My favorite band is The Residents
  • I’ve spent the night on an abandoned artificially-made island in the Pacific Ocean
  • I have 3 cats: Nyarlathotep, Azathoth, and Hatchetface. All of them are feral rescues.
  • I paint miniatures in my spare time, mostly Warmachine/Hordes. I don’t play any tabletop games anymore, but I really like buying the books and using them as reference for the painting.
  • I like to play board games, but only cooperative ones. Personal favorites are Arkham Horror (or Eldritch Horror), Defenders of the Realm, and other “Ameritrash” style games with lots of fiddly bits. I’m excitedly waiting for the Dark Souls Board Game kickstarter to deliver.

And since you asked, my forum name is the Greek term for the capability to understand what is true or real, or the facility for reason and rational thought in the human mind.

NERD TAX:

This is an example of my painting "skills":

Spacecats has made some rumblings about getting me on the Twitch stream tomorrow, so I hope to see everybody there!

It does! When you purchase a Golden Gift Box it will grant both TERA Rewards points (towards leveling up) as well as Reward Credits which will be delivered to your Item Claim in-game.

How are your stats read? is it just online numbers (we all know a loooot of people login to Tera to idle/afk) or is there other data such as what they have done during their time online?

This thread seems like a repeat of what happened in the forums before the last merge.

I can't really get into what numbers we record and monitor. There are several charts that our BI and Operation teams utilize when monitoring server activity.

As far as one thread being a repeat of another, this is a discussion started because somebody wants a server merge and decided to create a new thread about it. So... yeah you're right, that's the same. I wouldn't say AV is a lot like HW, though. Each server is surprisingly unique.

Can I suggest that the "Recommended" tab on server select isnt on one of the most populated servers. I think that when new players see server select for the first time they are more likely to choose the recommended servers. One of those servers is the most populated PvE server. And with people transferring to more populated servers it keeps looking more and more dead here and we are losing more and more skilled players.

Sure! If AV players are open to the idea of getting new blood, switching the "Recommended" label shouldn't be a problem. Admittedly I don't have full insight into why Treeshark chose the label he did, and I don't want to make promises we can't fulfill from a technical perspective, sooooo... haha, I guess I'll just say Denommenator and I will have a talk about it ;)

The population on AV is very similar to other servers. At any given moment (peak play times included) it has at least as many online players as CH (sometimes more), and CH doesn't seem to share the concerns given in this thread.

So what's happening? If it's not less people playing, I see two main things people are pointing to in this thread as a reason or indicator of decreased high-level activity:
  • Few players using the LFG function to find groups. If you look on other servers, the LFG function isn't exactly popular there either. The fact is that less players use the LFG menu than before. You have guilds banding together for Harrowhold runs, static groups running dungeons without a need for the LFG menu, and players who prefer Instance Matching (which matches people across all TERA servers.)
  • The Fey Forest merge. The only server transfer offered during the FF merge allowed PvE-focused players to join AV at no charge. I don't see how more PvE players would negatively impact the PvE scene on AV. If anything, the FF merge was a benefit to AV population.

Aside from those two points, I see conflicting statements such as "players are just idling in HW making it seem like the population is high" alongside "HW is deserted." This makes it really difficult to discern what the real issue is.

More of your thoughts are appreciated here. We want to make sure AV stays healthy just like you do, so if there's a concern like this we want to address it. Looking at the server data for AV, a server merge doesn't make sense. It's too healthy of a server to warrant a merge.

We've started a new contest for writing enthusiasts! Come up with your own TERA fan fiction that explains the mysterious origin of the Skycycles, a mount that has yet to be released (though you can currently view them up close in the in-game Fashion Store). The winning entry, selected by En Masse staff, will become actual TERA lore and the official origin story of the new mount! I'll announce and read it out loud during the January 13 TERA Twitch stream.

Please use this thread to discuss the contest and different story ideas. You can post your story here if you want to share it with your fellow players, but please remember that POSTING YOUR STORY HERE DOES NOT COUNT AS AN OFFICIAL SUBMISSION! You have to e-mail your work to FanArt@EnMasse.com for it to count in the contest!

All the rules and guidelines are given (or linked to) in this news post:

Let the writing begin, and good luck!



Dreamstorm has been disabled in an effort to improve some of the issues individual players are reporting.

We'll be posting a full summary of recent network incidents that impacted TERA's overall network performance as well as details surrounding a compensation package tomorrow (12/15/2016).

We appreciate all the reports players have submitted in this thread. They will aid in our continued investigation and monitoring of TERA's server performance going forward. In order to separate major network incidents from isolated, player-specific issues, we are locking this thread as it has served its purpose.
In response to player feedback, and until we can pinpoint exactly the impact of this event on TERA's overall performance, we are disabling Dreamstorms effective immediately.

We'll continue to monitor network performance and investigate performance surrounding this feature, but until further notice this feature will remain disabled.
I have no idea why people call the economy "crashed", just because it's not to their liking or imagination.

Armor has changed since Secrets & Shadows. I can imagine someone logging in from that update with an inventory full of Tier 9 Feedstock that, at the time they left, used to be worth quite a bit.
Please don't create duplicate threads. There's already a discussion concerning this issue here:
https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/9028/recent-server-stability-issues

@Spacecats i preformed a traceroute to the server listed in the "latency issue" area of the support, where should i send that information to assist getting this situation resolved? there's a nice little 200ms rt jump from one that you guys may want to look in to

Thank you. Can you send it to Community@enmasse.com with the title "Sever traceroute" with the file attached. From there, it can be forwarded to the Operations team. There's always a chance that info could help identify a problem area they haven't seen yet.

This isn't a penalty, it's just how the event tracks player progress. It's just a result of the way the event was designed, unfortunately.
The race will be different on each server! The course is marked with floating red orbs, with a START and FINISH sign at each end.

THE RACE CONTINUES! We will become snowmen. We will race for icy glory. But only one snowman can win.

The race track will be different this time, but like last week I'll have CM Smoreceror on call to present the audience with a photo finish, declaring the winners of each race. The 1st place winners will be awarded with a Sleipnir character mount, and the 2nd and 3rd place winners will walk away with a consolation prize of delicious Lamb Bulgogi.

Last week I visited MT, CH, and TR. This week's race will take place in:
  • Fey Forest
  • Ascension Valley
  • Mount Tyrannas


... in that order. MT gets a second shot because last week's improvised foot race was less than spectacular. The crowd demands a proper race!

In addition to visiting these servers, we'll have TERA trivia this week with some sweet prizes. We'll also run raffles in Twitch chat giving out additional prizes.

The show starts Friday 12/9 at 3:00 p.m. PST at https://www.twitch.tv/enmasseentertainment
Drops will resume today starting at 11 a.m. PST. We'll also be running this for the remaining weekends in December. A news post will go up shortly detailing this in a more official capacity.
Merged multiple threads. Please avoid making duplicates when creating a new discussion.

In regards to the ping spikes, we're aware and investigating the cause, which appears to be a traffic spike affecting a large area (including the datacenter housing the TERA servers).
We are aware of an issue affecting the servers right now and are investigating. It appears to be a traffic spike at an upstream node.
Hey all. Looking into the "Ticket not found" launcher problem. I'll post again if I get more info on it. I've also got the Ops team looking into the Dreamstorm lag that continues after the server adjustment.

@CobaltDragon Are you sure that's how it's supposed to function? It wasn't like that previously and doesn't seem fair you should be punished if your team either sucks or doesn't/can't res you

Doesn't make sense to get kicked from a match for this reason, that's why the snowman used to kill afk players at base (does this still happen?) to stop afking

I did specifically ask our QA Team if the change was intentional, and they confirmed that it was.

As for the snowman, I believe the mechanic for killing players who remain on the starting platform is still there and works.
Based on what you're describing, it sounds like the second part I mentioned with something limiting the required connection.

You'll most likely want to make a Support Ticket, and attach the text file that is created while running our EME Diagnostic : ( http://support.enmasse.com/tera/resolve-technical-issues-with-the-diagnostic-tool )

Can something be done with the bug in wintera snowfield that get u system kicked from the match when u stay dead for too long during the game? @Spacecats @CobaltDragon

I believe the intended function to prevent getting kicked while dead in Wintera is to have a nearby player assist in resurrecting your character.

Obviously this isn't ideal in a lot of situations ( like when your character dies at the very beginning of a round ), but if your team communicates well and can dedicate a player to help you up, the dropout can be avoided.
Is TERA crashing before Server Selection Screen, on Character Selection Screen, or while loading your character ?

Is it only happening while loading into the Wintera Battleground ?

Is it just a single character effected, or all characters ?


It might be something as simple as needing to run the Repair in your TERA Launcher's Tool menu to resolve a small file corruption that occurred, but it could something limiting the connection to the server, and the connection cannot be re-established fast enough to prevent a crash from happening.
For the most part, we see this when there is conflicting software that restricts the needed connection to the Launcher / Game Client.
You might need to temporarily remove some Security Software you have installed on the PC, or perhaps lower some Security Settings on Windows Firewall / Windows Defender, then restart the computer and check to see if the Launcher functions as intended.

If still no luck, please feel free to submit a Support Ticket and our Agents will be happy to assist. :)
This is a Known Issue that has already been reported to Bluehole Inc.

If they haven't already done so, it should be reviewed in the very near future and then changed so that it can continue to increase the count each time a dungeon is completed through Instance Matching, and when the requirement has been completed, the Achievement is obtained.
Ice Cream! Dope!
I found the DonkeyProphet!

We're communicated player desire for un-equalized Fraywind Canyon to Bluehole and the ball is currently in their court. There aren't any announcements to be made on the topic specifically, but we have seen an increase in Battleground participation thanks to the Power Hours scheduled throughout December.

As for BG merchants, I agree they could use adjusting in a few places. I've collected quite a bit of feedback from players and the Player Council on this, and it's a topic the TERA crew plans to address in the near future.

The team that maintains server stability and handles the relationship with our ISPs doesn't work on TERA updates or localization, so there's little need to worry about one affecting the progress of the other.

Instead of crying....move closer to BHS HQ, play TERA on STEAM

For one thing, please be more polite towards your fellow TERA players. Being rude to someone upset about lag accomplishes nothing.

Secondly, playing TERA on Steam and playing TERA through the launcher has no effect on connectivity. The servers are the same.

Thirdly... Bluehole is in Korea, our TERA servers aren't. You can still move there if you like, though :p
I'm here and reading posts, but please don't make new threads just to see if I'm still alive :p

Only one note for tomorrow:
http://tera.enmasse.com/news-page/patch-notes/patch-500203en2

But this downtime will give us the opportunity to implement some server changes we believe will improve latency, especially around Dreamstorm (which will resume its normal schedule).
That's amazing.
Welcome to TERA, Pamcake! There's already great advice in this thread but I wanted to make sure you knew about the New & Returning Player subforums where you can post any questions as they arise. There are always people ready and willing to answer odd questions in there as you familiarize yourself with the game.
Sorry about the scarves. We found the problem and I'm very happy to say it's all completely Denommenator's fault (and not mine)!

NEXT WEEK I'll have the real deal Red Wintera Scarves, plus people will be earning them from Battleground rewards in Wintera Snowfield. I'll visit Fey Forest, Ascension Valley, and Mount Tyrannas. I owe MT another visit since they were my guinea pigs today once we realized the scarves didn't work.

Verno vs Desolarus <.<? For a snooze fest

It would have to be a battle of wits. The one to drink the poisoned wine would lose.
I think Archdevans would beat Argons... but I would secretly be rooting for Argons because I think they're cool bad guys ;D
Maybe we can get spacecats to do some head to head stuff on a stream. :lol:

I wish I could! I can't make monsters fight each other, though. Only Bamarama can do that. :/ :/ :/
I try to alternate. I promise I'll visit AV and FF the next time I'm going to different servers for Twitch activities. There just isn't enough time in one stream to visit every server.
Starting today (12/2) at 11 a.m. PST until Monday, December 6 at 11 a.m. PST, reset scrolls for Lilith's Keep and Ruinous Manor will be rewarded for completion of specific dungeons:

1) Completion of the following dungeons will grant a reset scroll for Lilith's Keep (Normal):

- Shadow Sanguinary (Normal)
- Demokron Factory (Hard)
- Lilith's Keep (Normal)
- Vault of Kaprima (Normal)

2) Completion of the following dungeons will grant a reset scroll for BOTH Lilith's Keep (Hard) and Ruinous Manor (Normal):

- Lilith's Keep (Hard)
- Sky Cruiser Endeavor (Hard)
- Ruinous Manor (Normal)
- Shadow Sanguinary (Hard)

3) Completion of the following dungeons will grant a reset scroll for Ruinous Manor (Hard):

- Ruinous Manor (Hard)

Scrolls are being distributed as a drop off the end boss in the above dungeons and, upon pick-up, will distribute to all members in the party. All scrolls are bankable but not tradable.

To re-iterate, Lilith's Keep and Ruinous manor are not intended to be reset with a regular instance reset scroll both in the previous and current build version.

Because of this, we will be distributing these scrolls through other means, such as rewards for completing dungeons as above, or as event rewards.
The scrolls will be dropping this weekend according to the previous format. This will start at 11 a.m. PST today (Dec. 2). I will be re-posting the details in a separate, stickied thread.

Thanks for noticing this. I went ahead and mentioned it to Denommenator , so it should have the "This loot box also comes in a stack of three." removed shortly.
Might also want to mention to @Denommenator that the Castanic Snowbelle lootbox also has a chance on dropping an Amani one :P

"It's a Trap!" :o
Haha, thanks catching this as well.

It has been brought to our attention via the player council and since been confirmed via our monitoring tools that Dreamstorms are affecting server-wide performance. We have a couple ideas about how we might alleviate the issues caused by Dreamstorm but they must be deployed during a maintenance.

As such, we have made the decision to disable Dreamstorms effective immediately. They will remain off through Dec. 6 at 7 a.m. PST.

Following maintenance on Tuesday, we will continue to monitor the situation and continue to make changes as necessary.

Thanks for your patience while we work to improve the feature and my apologies that you will not be able to participate in the event this weekend. We think it's for the best of the player base at large heading into the weekend.
As of right now, the only way to get a 2.0 passive dragon is by purchasing it from another player via the trade broker or through the loot boxes in the TERA store. Only the 1.5 passive is currently available through in-game means. There aren't any plans to change this in the foreseeable future.

FRIDAY...
DECEMBER...
SECOND...

Witness the greatest race ever raced... first hand. I'll be visiting THREE SERVERS:
  • Mount Tyrannas
  • Celestial Hills
  • Tempest Reach

In that order. Everyone viewing the stream will get a few Red Wintera Scarves that turn you into a speedy snowman (as shown above). For each server, I'll define the racetrack before the race and meet players at the starting line I've announced. We'll all get into snowman form before racing to the finish line!

Not on one of the above servers? Hang out in the Twitch chat and partake in the weekly raffle! The stream begins at 3 p.m. PST on the En Masse Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/enmasseentertainment
Whispers of winter are on the wind, my friends...
Closing this thread. Please remember to be polite and respectful towards others. The forums are a place to have healthy discussion over the game, not to bicker and call each other names.
I've removed some content from this thread that was getting a little mean-spirited. Just wanted to remind folks to please keep it constructive if you're going to post in the forums.

Congrats on clearing the Raid, Amaterasu!

Not just that but the 'Sequential Arrow' focus stack doesn't even work as intended. It doesn't apply the focus stacks on the archer but instead on whatever it hits. Example shown in picture.

Thanks for the screenshot. I've passed this on for the team to look at.

This isn't really about TERA. Moving to off-topic.
It's okay friend, we will have RMHM scrolls drop again this weekend.

Correct.

where its the man of the 30 raids?

The teleportal to Harrowhold is located at the airship dock in the Velika Outskirts.
Players cannot enter Harrowhold via instance matching.
I thought what GF put together was really cool and I'd like to do something similar. It's definitely on our radar.
They're not dropping right now but they will be this weekend.
Thanks guys we'll look into those before the update hits.
