Something is stirring in the waves off Castanica, with an insatiable hunger...for a good time!

TERA’s Summer Festival event is back, with the traditional Castanica Beach Bash, the Festival of the Sun in Balder’s Refuge, and a brand-new line of swimwear for 2017.

THRILL! at the splash cannon and watermelon-bashing mini-games on the beach!

MARVEL! at the tarnished grandeur of the temple at Balder’s Refuge!

GASP! at the daring new bronze bikinis and lifeguard trunks in the TERA Store!

DARE! to complete the event quests and daily quests laid out before you!

TERA’s Summer Festival opens Thursday, July 13, and continues until Tuesday, August 1. Miss it at your own peril...
This is done.
That is weird. We're looking into it. Not sure what's going on.
Only warning. Stay on topic and stop calling each other out.

Any word on if this is going to be addressed during maint tomorrow?
Nothing said in patch notes, but not sure if anything would be said there.

Fair question. It probably wouldn't be addressed there because that service is unrelated to the individual builds. That said, no, server transfers remain disabled for the forseeable future.
There is a video link if you view it through the web store.

If you are removing some stuff from my pockets, you better put something else there instead or else >:)

Let's just say, I think summer festival tokens will be in higher demand during this year's event than in previous years...

Why do I have a really very bad feeling about this? Oh, I know! Because just recently a GM was talking about VM9 mat event in July.

Another influx of materials for Deathwrack equipment would hurt more than would be beneficial. If i am not mistaken, it was @Halrath who said something about it, and it was him who changed the rewards from the TS Dungeon Highlight to avoid an oversupply of VM9 materials.

Giving feedstock and other enchanting materials would be fine, depending on the amounts, but giving more VM9 materials is a no go to my opinion and to the opinion of most.

Well, whoever it was(and, yes,I could check but I'm lazy) said it in the July BG topic. He couldn't have been talking about the TS event as that happened in June. Whether they changed their mind on the VM9 mat event or not is still up in the air. I'm also not sure how much value enchanting mats would still have after this event. I'm just having these really bad flashbacks from the anniversary event and how they hyped it for weeks just to then release pure absurdity. I shiver every time a GM says "rewards be awesome".....

we had like 5 days of double drop, maybe that was the plan. can you not jump to conclusions?

No, sorry, I like jumping to conclusions. Find it way more useful in general than putting on my cheer-leading uniform and waving my pompoms at any EmE staff member that passes by.

and you think you are being useful ?! Look at my Avatar and think carefully about what you gonna say next.

Anyway, items are being removed. Fun stuff will happen. Derailed topic is closed.

Now, when are those swimsuits n scuba gear going to be on sale, I got some merman hunting to do.

Soon™
The full patch notes will go up next week.
If you’re looking to boost your performance, there’s no better time than this weekend to pile on the pluses!

Starting Friday, July 7 at 10 a.m. PDT, and running until maintenance on Tuesday, July 11, all Awakening and Awakened enchanting costs are reduced by 25 percent! So gather up your eligible gear and get ready to rule the battlefield!
So, yeah, apparently that was posted yesterday: http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/the-dragonsire-is-coming-for-revenge

Actually, I staged the post yesterday, but forgot to flip the date when I published it a few minutes ago. Really, it came out today. You didn't miss any news post.
TERA’s latest update, “Dragonsire’s Revenge,” goes live on Tuesday, July 11, bringing with it new gear set options and updates for a few dungeons.

Check out all the details on the Dragonsire’s Revenge promo page...then mark your calendar.
The topic is swimsuits, not physics. Let's drop personal attacks and focus on the topic or move on to another one, please.
Badges of Loyalty and Lakan's Scales are not only in the loot tables--the same percentage even--but at a higher rate than June. They are, however, still rare items.
I would recommend Tichondrius if you're into PvP, or Dalaran if you're more the PvE sort.

I see what you did there.
There are no increased entries. What I meant was I reset the entries that had already been used. That's all.
Keep it civil, please.
Emem1201 wrote: »
@Halrath What about our increased entries? :cry:

I reset those as well.
The event was restarted and should work fine now. We also reset the dungeon entries and will extend the event until 12:00 PM PDT on 7/5. Sorry for the trouble, folks.
That seems to be part of the bug. I reset the dungeons on all the servers. Apologize for the headaches.
Just reset the dungeons and the event. Will extend it until 12pm on 7/5.

Let me know if this isn't working now.
We're going to turn the event off, reset it, and then reset the entries. Stand by.
I restarted the event on Ghillieglade. That should work from now on.

Pit of Petrax is not included because it is not a typical dungeon. I will update the news post, though. I should have thought of that when I wrote it. I'm sorry about the confusion.
It is set on every server same as the other dungeons. The event did just start a few minutes ago.
That's crazy wonky. I did add it last night. I'll check it. Stand by to stand by.
The talismans have been removed from July's BG jackpots to allow us to use a new event as a means of distributing them. This change is by no means permanent, but it is is a part of our plan for this month. We will evaluate things at the end of July and that will inform our plans for August.
There are multiple threads on this topic. We do not need another.
I went to the MAT for you folks. I arm-wrestled Denommenator three times (and only cheated twice) and persuaded him that Ghillieglade is okay for the event, too.

Have fun storming the glade.
Summer is in full swing and we’re sending you into the dungeons as we prepare for Independence Day!

Starting at 10 a.m. PDT on Friday, June 30 and ending on Wednesday, July 5 at 10 a.m. PDT, you’ll get twice the usual drops in each and every TERA dungeon (except Ghillieglade).

In addition, from 10 a.m. PDT on July 4 until Wednesday, July 5 at 10 a.m. PDT, we’ve got blue boxes full of fireworks for everyone to celebrate with.

So hit those dungeons, light off some fireworks, and enjoy the long weekend!

Hrm, I'm not entirely sure what's happening but I appear to still be having this problem. I usually log on around 7-8pm EDT and claim my elite boxes, yet it seems that the elite bar only resets every other day for me. Today I was able to log on briefly around 8am EDT and the bar wasn't reset at all even though the change made reset at 4am EDT.

Ah well at least the item claim boxes are still coming through.

We're still monitoring and testing this situation.

Also holy cow EME could you please beg BHS to bring campfires back as a cosmetic thing? So many people miss them.

Sure thing.
My apologies. Lakan's Scale was a typo. It was always Lakan's Barrier and I corrected the news post.
Here's the calendar for the July Battleground Jackpots.
Tewii wrote: »
Gameforge just announced their Harrowhold release date as July 4th, or rather "the first week of July" which we can easily assume that will be July 4th.

This is not good, not good whatsoever. A week is not enough time to rally the troops and get everyone up to speed and be able to figure out who all is going to be able to come to raid on the day we set. Harrowhold is not just another dungeon, it is a dungeon that requires the most coordination out of anything that has ever been in the game. It is not something you can just lazily announce a few days beforehand, that is how you will make the community mad.

As someone who will be leading over 140 people and managing each individual raid, please announce the release date as soon as humanly possible. The very real problem is that people need to sort out real life things before Harrowhold, people need to figure out what's going on that day, and people need to make sure they do not make plans for the day of release. Some people may even need to call off work. Now if they make plans on the day of release, or people who are unable to call off work unless it's a week in advance, they get screwed.

So please En Masse, be considerate of the people who live normal lives outside of TERA, let us be able to accurately plan our day one raids, and give us better timing of when this patch will come out.

Thank you.

We're targeting the 2nd week of July for the release of v57, which includes the return of Harrowhold. Nothing is etched in stone yet, but that's our plan. I hope this helps you schedule things with your raidmates.
You will probably need to log all the way out of the game, close the launcher, and log back in again. Then they should appear in your Item Claim.
Enjoy your weekend!

Does everyone in the picture get the prize?

The prize would go to whomever submitted it. Profit sharing schemes should be arranged prior to submission! ;)
I'm sorry to hear about this issue. I spoke to Cobaltdragon about this and to resolve it, you will need to submit a ticket to CS.
It’s the Summer of Love in TERA and to celebrate, we have another contest for our community! The new wedding outfits are available and we want to see your perfect wedding.

Gather your friends, dress them up in gorgeous wedding outfits, and we’ll pick the best images! Images must show a wedding party of five or more. We’re accepting entries at fanart@enmasse.com through Thursday, June 29 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

The top winner will receive 5,000 EMP and two runners-up will each get 2,500 EMP.

Standard En Masse contest rules apply.

Winners will be announced in a news post, and may be posted to the TERA website or shown in our weekly Twitch stream.

So send us your screenshots and leave us in “Awwww!”

As I mentioned earlier this week, we're planning one for this summer, but NOT SOON™
Sorry for the late response to this thread. I'll go ahead and remove the VM mats from the event. I'll probably put something else in there for now. I'll make sure we ease off the influx of materials for awhile, too.
There is already a thread discussing lag as well as another thread talking about the massive incoming traffic spike. Please don't make duplicate threads.
FF and TR are up again and players are logging in. Sorry for the disruption, folks.

Since we talking bout wedding costumes, lets talk about that hinted 2017 swimsuit collection during the past stream, shall we @Halrath ?

NO off-topic posts, please. :P

Seriously, though, swimsuits don't seem like a topic for June. We'll talk again later.
ElinUsagi wrote: »
The announcement says that this week we are going to have them avaliable in the cash shop.

Since it wasn't included after the patch do you guys may tell us when they will be ready? :(

Love is in the air...on Thursday.
I feel like this thread has reached the end of its usefulness. There's nothing wrong with wanting alternate ways to acquire things. Let's move on and let this discussion end.
I like it.
Having read this thread, I just want to say that we will look for more avenues to acquire noctenium in-game. It was already set up for my next event, but we will still look for more ways.
@Halrath can you explain how to get this costume?

First, they cheatz0r, then they incur the wrath of Halrath, and then they get their account banned.
We'll have one later this summer. Definitely not next weekend, but the rewards will be sweet enough to require a dentist's visit.

Harrowhold will return in The Avengers.



Wait, no. It will come with v57, which will release some time next month.

please tell me v57 brings back the choice for character direction or camera direction attacks on controller please please PLEASE!

As I have stated in several places about that topic, do not expect further changes any time soon. BHS likes it this way. We have argued against it. Wish we could win that fight, but for now, the controls are as they are in the current build.

Can any staff membrer update us with informations about the constant lag problems?

Denommenator is working on an update, but he's extremely busy at the moment. It's important to him (and us), however.
DpkFicxll wrote: »
just let us know if u guys are reading our topics

We're reading the topics and we're discussing them. Bear in mind that even if we want to make a change, at the very least that requires a maintenance on our part and often requires work on Bluehole, so nothing will change over night.

That said, this is something we will evaluate and choose a course of action we feel best for the game and the players. Really can't talk about upcoming content yet, but I'll see if I can get some details for you.
Spacecats is on well-earned vacation for a couple of weeks, but the rest of us are here.
Harrowhold will return in The Avengers.

Well, with their past, and so many people have tried to tell what they want, and BHS has mainly done what THEY want, it doesn't give people an incentive to do it anymore.

I personally have got shot down by some of this toxic community for expressing my ideas.

But in any case, I will put this. @Halrath would you at least talk with BHS about putting the system back to when we had the "camera direction" and "Character direction" options in the controller options?

I doubt BHS would do anything though, and EME's already talked with them once or twice and they agreed to do at least this, I'm afraid of pushing my luck. As I said, I do NOT want to go back to everything be camera faced.

I can request it again, of course. We pushed back pretty hard on this, but met with...resistance. Do not hold out much hope that this will change anytime soon. I'm just trying to set your expectations, not shoot you down.

Follow-up. I spoke to Seandynamite about this. The answers to your questions are as follows:

Blue Bar: If you log out and log back in, the timer is only paused. It will not wipe.
Purple Bar: You only get the rewards once for the event.

The cumulative time and rewards are per server. If you play on 8 toons on one server, that has no effect on your characters that are not on CH.

That is still not really clear. If that is the case, then both bar are the same? If we reach 5h, the blue bar reset?

That cleared up some. Thank you.

You said the purple bar is per server. What about the blue bar? Is it per server too? or per character?

Both timer bars are per server.

Have I missed this or something?

So I've been working on one for a little while now. I've gotten far, but there are so many missing pieces and misinformation out there from mistranslated lore it seems.

This is a legitimate request. I dunno how to ask for it, but I know that roleplayers would actually be interested in LEARNING about the Gods if they weren't so scattered and their relations not just thrown together for them to piece up.

I know it's probably not going to happen. This is just a rant after a lot of hard work going capoot, but ah well.

The Writing Team came up with a LOT of lore for TERA. Sadly, much of that has been lost to time, but I'll see if I can get them to piece something together. I'll dig through my old notes, too.
Ketoth wrote: »
question:

is no stop time or i can relog without losing the time counts?

Fair question.

If you log out, you lose your time for that play session (the blue bar), but it still counts towards your cumulative total (the purple bar).
Ah. I see the problem. The image link was wrong. Thanks for the tip. I'll fix that right now.
The event isn't on the launcher yet, so there is no link from there. Here is the link from the News page.
Maintenance has ended. Servers and services are restored.

PLAY ON!

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.

This.

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.
LancerJiva wrote: »
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.

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.

nope, im get is only Tera Eu exclusive

maybe you must be moved to tera eu, but im dont want see u returned to na with empy wallet huehue

It's not an EU exclusive. We will have it in a future release. No further details at this time, though. Sorry.
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!

We've got summer plans coming for you next month. Fear not!
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 are most welcome.
The dragon scales have been added to VSHM. Sorry for the delay.

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!
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.

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.
