On a test Server environment, I'll admit this actually look pretty fun.

The “Awakening” update comes in April to NA.
What @counterpoint said is true - this is not indicative of how we will be selling ALL items going forward. But it is a way we can sell some things, and I'm so happy that everyone is reacting positively to it.
At this time, I think we're going the route of keeping as many earned items exclusive as possible, with the only real exceptions being items that had already been in the Fashion Coupon store previously, like all of the "made exclusively for you by Meruma" types, and some of the costumes offered when a new class was released.
As we get ready for additional Phases, i'll try my best to ensure the above stays true, and will probably rely on our Player Council to help prevent me from adding anything that should remain exclusive, due to how it was previously obtained through in-game methods.
With that said, I definitely understand the frustration from those who participated and earned the above mention items when they were first introduced.

Maybe now BHS can focus more on the second part of class awakening!

It was already on the roadmap in KR - so this has no effect on it.
I sent a similar long list (with items in the same range), but most of them fell into the categories in the OP (EU-exclusive, Skycastle-exclusive, temporary, etc.). I hope they can find a way to get appropriate versions from BHS so we can have them as regular usable skins in our region.

Don't think I forgot about these.
They were kept within my document, even if it takes a request to get them. =)
I'll be perfectly frank regarding Gridiron and Champion's Skyring:

Gridiron is getting a revamp soon and we'll focus back on it when it's more relevant (in the hopes it is more relevant, that is)

Champion's Skyring has had too many issues with being exploited for the rewards (mainly via organized throwing of matches), so adding jackpots to them needs to happen on a very shortly timed and monitored basis going forward (if we want to be able to add better jackpots, like I believe this one to be). Feedback is being passed back to the devs to work on that, but for the meantime that's just how it will be. We will try to work on a way to do this (we actually are working on an idea already but requires a CM to help).
This is just a General Maintenance with no big changes.

The one thing to note that will occur during Maintenance tomorrow would be this :

Added Champion's Enchanting Chest x1 and Ruby x2 as additional rewards to the following Vanguard Requests :
Corsairs' Stronghold - Win in Corsairs' Stronghold (not the pre-formed version)
Fraywind Canyon - Win in Fraywind Canyon

@seandynamite @CobaltDragon

Hey, guys, I KNOW you've been working hard. Just wondering about the FC update that was supposed to happen in February.

Thank you for your hard work. I know it's a tough job.

(Sort of sarcasm, sort of not.)

edIt: I'm a derp and missed the sticky, but I'll leave it up so you can both make fun of me.

I'll just let it live here forever.
For the month of March we are switching up some things.

First, we will only be setting 2 BGs on the calendar to swap out everyday. Fraywind Canyon and Corsairs' Stronghold (both versions) will rotate everyday as listed in this fancy Excel calendar:

Capture.PNG

Second, we are changing up what you can get in the jackpot. Jackpots in featured battlegrounds award one of the following:t:
  • Emeralds x5
  • Superior Etching Box x1
  • Champions Enchanting Box x1
  • Precious Gem Box x1
  • Dragon Scales x2

Battleground jackpots start at 10 a.m. PST and end at 9:59 a.m. PST the following morning, when the highlighted battleground switches to the next one. Remember, March 11th marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time here in NA, so that day, I adjusted the event to run so the times SHOULDN'T change.
For all suggestions, pictures aren't quite as helpful to me, and I do actually need an in-game name or item ID for all suggestions. Thx.

Starting Friday, March 2 at 3 a.m. PST and continuing until Tuesday, March 6 at 3 a.m., we are highlighting RK-9 Kennel and RK-9 Kennel (Hard).

During this highlight, Vanguard Requests will have a bonus reward of one Dragon Scale (2 for Hard), you’ll earn increased drops from monsters, and an additional bonus jackpot for completion.

RK-9 Kennel jackpots yield one of the following:
• Master Crafter’s Secret Additive ×1
• Smart Dyad Niveot Structure ×1
• Superior Noctenium Elixir ×1
• Crafter’s Cure ×2
• Feast ×2

RK-9 Kennel (Hard) jackpots yield one of the following:
• Master Crafter’s Secret Additive ×1
• Smart Dyad Niveot Structure ×1
• Superior Noctenium Elixir ×2
• Crafter’s Cure ×4
• Feast ×4

RK-9 Kennel (Hard) jackpot has double the chance to obtain a Smart Dyad Niveot Structure.

roughly how many phases you think is gonna take for us to have a complete Fashion Coupon store? Also, i am still wondering why Gunner, Reaper, Brawler and Valkyrie, cannot use the other armors like the other classes.
I tried to touch on that with this portion :
many rejected items still have templated styles associated with them, which don’t function properly in our environment. For these items, we may be able to turn those styles into weapon skins or costumes in the future, with the new items being exclusive to our NA servers.
Some of the styles ( such as the 1-60 leveling Armor / Weapons ) could be a bit faster to add in the next Phase, depending on whether or not we get them in versions that are exclusive to our NA servers, while other styles might take longer and require a new request be made to Bluehole, to convert styles on items into costumes / weapon skins.

Please keep in mind that I am open to additional suggestions for things that are "missing", so if any players feel like providing lists similar to what was seen in previous Forum Threads, I'll be happy to review it, adding either a submitted list of names or item ID's to my already compiled list, removing any duplicates as I go.

As for your other question, I believe that might also comes down to a request to Bluehole to add Reapers, Gunners, Brawlers, Ninjas, and Valkyries to those existing Armor / Weapons.

Tonight, we're rolling out Phase 1 of our Fashion Coupon store update.

I've attached a full list of added items below, but in the interest of transparency first I want to provide some information about the process.

Many players might be under the impression that adding hundreds of “missing” items to the Fashion Coupon store is just a matter of copying over a list of items available in other regions, but this is not the case.

Our initial comparison list included suggestions from players in the Forums, our Player Council, as well as an examination of the entire item datebase for all regions.

The process resulted in some potential new items, but also eliminated many others from consideration.

Here’s some of our reasons:

- Suggested items were meant for Skycastle merchants, which expire when a character logs out or leaves the Skycastle.
- Suggested items had in-game requirements, such as clearing all the floors of Dreadspire.
- Suggested items had a large gold sale value.
- Suggested items were exclusive to another region.
- Suggested items were not costumes or weapon skins, but instead actual gear or weapons.

When it comes to items exclusive to another region, we have no control over that item’s appearance or availability.
Even if we could offer it in our region, if the item was changed in any way in that other region, our offering would also change, or perhaps be removed from the game entirely.

Further, many rejected items still have templated styles associated with them, which don’t function properly in our environment. For these items, we may be able to turn those styles into weapon skins or costumes in the future, with the new items being exclusive to our NA servers.

With that said, we'll continue to evaluate items for the Fashion Coupon store, and add them as appropriate.

More details will get announced as we get closer. Once something has been posted, I'll add this question to the Console Frequently Asked Question Thread
No Code or Invite needed.
On March 9th, TERA will appear in each Console's Store and will be available as a free download.

Wait, so we won't be able to predownload the game prior to the open beta? It will come up on the store when the servers come up? Re-read the FAQ, still seems a bit wonky to give maybe a few hours to download the game. Especially a game of this size, unless the game isn't as huge as it is on PC.
I answered this question in an update in the Console Frequently Asked Questions Thread
Can I install TERA on Xbox / PS4 prior the start of Open Beta ?
- We're waiting to get confirmation on this one, but it sounds like the answer will be yes. If that ends up being the case, I'll try to get a starting time added, for when you can begin the download.
I care. Question answered - thread closed.
Closing the thread as OP suggested - it's a good idea.
I'll try to see if I can get a few more of these recent questions answered today.

I hope the one you guys intend, is the permanent one.
Please be the permanent one...

Yeah, lol.
It wouldn't be very nice to add in new skins / costumes that have never been seen before, just to make them Single Day versions with a large fashion coupon cost. ;)

What if we added the temporary ones at a lower cost on some of them though? How would folks feel about that?
I'd like to clear this up though - back in October I said we would commit to adding these to the product roadmap and accomplishing them. I did NOT give a solid timeline nor did I say they'd all be done in the next couple months. So it's been 4 months - we removed Fed bills and moved all the items to another shop because it was yet ANOTHER currency that had no intent or meaning behind it; we are finalizing what may be the first of a few updates to Fashion Coupon shop for today/tomorrow/Wednesday (not sure which day - all based on prioritized workload for our small team).

I understand it feels like an eternity and I can't speak for what happened from prior Product Managers or CMs, but THIS TEAM is working hard on it (and especially @CobaltDragon - he will be hailed as a hero when this is done).

I just wanted to give that update as well. My attempt at being transparent about what we are working on and what we plan on working on is backfiring in that there is an entitled expectation that this is ALL we are working on, which obviously couldn't be further from the truth. Regardless of what tools it takes to do it and how fast it is to enter the items (which, btw, is a horribly manual process - don't for a second think it's "easy" to do, even if it doesn't require a build).

Assumptions about how "easy" or "difficult" a task can be is based PURELY ON SPECULATION. Unless you have worked at EME and used the tools we use and walked a mile in our shoes, you probably shouldn't make assessments about how long something takes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again,

Patience, young padawans. All will be OK.

Few weeks/months seems like an eternity for us.

Updating these shops is a manual process, requiring one or more EME Staff to go looking for all of the items / costumes / weapon skins.

In the case of the Fashion Coupon Store, I wanted to make sure we identified as many missing skins and costumes as possible.

It might seem like an easy task at first glance, like a "Fix It" single button press, but trust me, it's not...

There are multiple different versions of the exact same items, some for our region and some for other regions.
Also, we need to identify if the one we have found is a permanent versions, a 30-Day versions, a 7-Day versions, a 3-Day versions, or 1-Day versions, to ensure we're adding the one that we intend.
I am personally working with @seandynamite to finish it by today / tomorrow.

More details surrounding what is going into it will get posted, though it might be in the Patch Notes, instead of here in this section of the Forums.

I for one am glad that they have gem boxes in the shop. I just wish they would keep them. ive always said that they need some sort of gold voucher in the cash shop so we can buy gold.

If gold is purchasable (rather than created in game by effort,) it destroys the economy. F2P games, at least healthy ones, are supported by all the players, not just the spenders.

If you remove the incentive for spenders to interact with free players, then the economy goes belly up very quickly. There is no incentive to bring cosmetics/vouchers/mounts into the game for other players. Free players who farm 4-5 hours cannot compete with a quick purchase of 100k gold. The final death knell is the actual injection of gold into the economy causing inflation.

Permanent Gem boxes would totally destructive for TERA.
The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

Oh so this ham-fisted idea was your brainchild? That makes so much more sense now.

LOL
While we are always watching CCU, we have not made any plans or announcements regarding server merges.
FWIW I have been conducting user interviews and research on how I could better make Elite useful by focusing on multiple player types (such as brand new players, leveling players, PvP players, dungeon players, etc...) and coming up with lists of things that focus on each player type. Unfortunately, many of the things are tied to what I can get from existing items/buffs (requesting new features/items takes quite a bit of time) but I will be looking to do a relaunch of TERA Elite Status soon. In the meantime, I think the consumables box and elite gift box probably can use some updating, along with a new mount. Mount changes are relatively easy, though I'll dispel that we will be giving dragons or phoenix (or flight suits for that matter - that has multiple requirements and makes it really difficult to give out) but there's a plethora of other mounts. And I agree with an earlier post, they need refreshes more often than they are getting now.

Oh good.

So judging by the fact that you said in game shops would be addressed in October, and it is now days from March and we still have had zero shops actually changed (and all that happened was it was moved, and then deleted,) we should expect elite box changes sometime in 2019 right?

I speak sarcasm too, so yes. Expect it in 2019, @CassandraTR - hold your breath while you're at it.

on a different note, @counterpoint , did eme ask the player council what their opinion was concerning gem boxes before they brought them out to the store? if so, what did you guys say about it?
Since there's no community rep for TERA PC right now, there's very little dialog with Player Council. There was no consultation on gem boxes.

The decision to release this item was made between BHS and myself, Player Council had no impact nor were they consulted, as @counterpoint said. It is based on an item that KTERA and other territories have released. This is not an EME only item. Just to be clear.

@Zoknahal how about you leave my daily & rep bonuses alone just cause you don't need them does not mean they do not help people who are smart enough to find a use for them. Only reason I pay for elite honestly, and for a mount elite should NOT be a flight suit or Dragon/Phoenix.

The only reason why someone would farm the old dailies, would be for the hats to be honest, hats that you can currently get through the fashion coupons, ever since they were introduced into the Federation Bill shop, and now since its going out of business, you can get them through the Fashion Coupons for the time being.

If you however are after the Black Panther mount, then elite would make it a lot faster to get because you need a specific item from each reputation vendor. But currently, its a 275 mount, and being realistic, with flying mounts around, and one you can get for free at lvl 65, no one would be interested in a ground mount with a 275 speed, only for the looks and maybe earning yourself some legacy item, which again, is not anymore, since the actual legacy version of that mount, had a 280 speed. I honestly do not see any use for the old jewelry that the old reputation merchants sell.

Elite has to have something attractive for players that wish to pay for it. Having outdated benefits that only work with outdated content, is not attractive for players seeking a QoL benefit for end game, such as doubling the rewards for Vanguards for being elite. In the long run, speaking from a business standpoint, EME would make more money by making elite more attractive to this specific part of the playerbase, rather than keeping it the way it is, and constantly getting threads like this to implore for a change on Elite.

Oh okay, I'll see if I can look into whether more regions are included than what was available in the Technical Test.
The answer I received was Yes, this Open Beta will allow more locations to participate than what was originally offered during the Technical Test.
It is my understanding that more specifics details surrounding this will be announced a bit later.

Thanks.

As a follow up question to #4 on your list do you know if we will just be able to keep and update the open beta client on console for the full release or will that be a aseperate DL.

Sadly, the answer is somewhat the same as above with the Technical Test update to Open Beta install, that at the time it's something we haven't tested, so it may be possible, but TBD.
Is there a need for a Code or Invite to participate in Open Beta ?
- No Code or Invite required, TERA will be available for Download in the Xbox / PS4 Stores on March 9th starting at 6am PST

Will there be a wipe following Open Beta ?
- Yes there will be a Wipe following Open Beta. One advantage to this, will be that it allows us to give out prizes during the Open Beta at different intervals, and the wipe allows us to maybe give out things we wouldn't normally provide.

Will there be a separation between Servers ?
- As far as I am aware, I think there is a separation at the moment of PS4 EU / PS4 NA / Xbox EU / and Xbox NA. Unsure if that will change in the future.

Can I keep my Technical Test install and update it when Open Beta starts ?
- I am lead to believe, that it will attempt an update of an existing install of the TERA Console Technical Test. We have not had a chance to test that update yet, so at this time, the answer is kinda more of a TBD with the possibility of yes.
I'm an idiot. Yes. 19 is correct. editing like it never happened.
Let me clear that up -

1. Similar to what we did with Eliin Gunner launch, you will NOT be able to gender/race change to the Male Brawler at launch. You will have to create a new character and level it. Similarly, that restriction will not be permanent.
2. Character slots are being raised to 19 - if you log in during the first week after the launch you will get a character slot for free (this is also like we did for Elin Gunner launch)
@CobaltDragon
I believe we'll be doing the same thing as what occurred originally with High Elf Female / Castanic Female Gunners.

So we will be getting another character slot with the male brawler?

Yes, and a raise of maximum number of slots to 19 total.
RSS feed in the launcher is now fixed.
A little while longer, yes. It will depend in part how the open beta performs. We ironed out a lot of issues during the previous technical test, but we anticipate the load during open beta will be quite a bit larger so hopefully things run smoothly.

This is the reason we opted to do an open beta instead of a closed beta, we really want to stress test the server to ensure we're ready for launch.
No Code or Invite needed.

Added a new known issue - RSS feed on launcher looks crazy.
Maintenance is over! yay!
Yeah sorry updating the news post - it's 195. I had to change the price at the last minute and it didn't get communicated through to the staged news post.
Maybeeee... B)

I love how you only scold me but no one else. Gotta love when EME has a personal vendetta against players that have paid for Elite for years.

Sorry EvasiveFox. There was no personal vendetta against you. There is a time and a place for direct Moderation, as well as friendly reminders.

Server status page will be unavailable until it gets ported into the new site.

@CobaltDragon can we pls have a awnser or explanation to my question? ty

Hello all!

Today our faithful web team has launched a new version of the TERA website, which includes features pertaining to the XBONE and PS4 console versions of the game (as well as offering a mobile responsive version of the site!). As such, I wanted to give you some info about the launch state of the site:
  • Product Roadmap will be brought back into the site (for the time being, I will create a new Discussion in the News and Announcements section that will get pinned and updated until we get a site version)
  • Server Status page will be brought back into the site
  • Older news posts - the site will launch with all the most recent news posts, but the entire list of old entries will not be imported into the new site format
  • Guides - some guides will be going away, and some will be getting facelifts over the coming months to make them more agnostic to platform version
  • Patch Notes - patch notes will be posted in a new TERA PC Patch Notes forum - the latest will be pinned as an announcement to the top
  • In-game Welcome Window - this page will be broken for a little bit while the web team rewrites the code to feed the page

New site probably means some bugs here and there, and our team will be bug-squashing as they work through that and other feature requests. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep up with it all!

Hey all! We got a bit of snow up here in Seattle this morning and that delayed some folks from being able to start maintenance. As such, servers will be brought down at 9 a.m. PST (logins have already been turned off) and maintenance will be extended until 12 p.m. PST (though hopefully we'll still meet the original 11 a.m. PST time.
While Gameforge actually logged on their characters and took screenshots, EME just decided to once again half [filtered] everything and steal a video from a youtube of someone showcasing the hair styles :+1:

What you have stated is not what occurred. The uploaded Youtube Videos showing the new Hair Styles were created and uploaded by us.
Yes we'll post a full event schedule prior to the build going live
We haven't received the final version of the build yet so I can't give you an definitive answer. HOWEVER, in our current version, both items (the elemental essence and the fragment item that awards emeralds) are in the loot table for the Hard Mode version.

When the patch notes publish before the build goes live you should get a definitive answer.
This thread is devolving into bashing EME and or BHS and I'll go ahead and close it now. @CobaltDragon @SingleBear and I are working on the shop update.

Is it just me, or are the rewards for this current Guardian Legion event kinda, lower, than what we expected? I remember, looking at the event calendar in weeks past, and talking with some friends about how we were gonna spam this guardian legion stuff for this week together. Now that they've seen the extra rewards, the most common response I get is "why bother?".

I think maybe a x1.5 or x2 bonus to the actual guardian legion credits themselves would've been neat. But beyond that, I find that the content is actually very rewarding in itself (honestly, I feel like increasing the gem box drop amount whatsoever would be overkill). However, the biggest complaint I hear about it is the immense amount of time it can take if you're not geared to the teeth and overly proficient at whatever class you're using. So maybe, increasing the actual points acquisition instead of the actual drops would make for a more attractive event?

Honestly, I can't speak for other servers, but I did the content on my home server of Fey Forest on and off throughout the day today and it seemed to me like there was about the same if not less people doing it than what I'd seen in the past few weeks at similar times. I understand that this is a week long event, and so it wouldn't make sense for it to have excessive "once in a year chance" kind of rewards, but it just doesn't feel like theres much of an event going on at all atm.


Thanks for the feedback on it - we will be running those kinds of events in the future as well - this is one of those "some folks will get a lot of use out of it, some won't" kind of events, so we're trying as many different things as we can (that don't break the servers, that is) to see what works and what doesn't.

I have a feeling you'll see those double-type events in the near future, but just wanted to say thanks for the feedback.
Oh I'll snuff out the conspiracies - this week's patch/maintenance has nothing to do with Fashion Coupon shop updates. That can be done live while the servers are up with our GM Tool. The maintenance this week is going to patch some server crash issues.

See? I'm helpful!
Ahhhhhh the monthly "Is TERA dead?" post - I was wondering if we'd see you come up in February.

And I finally have an answer: "No. It's not."

If the post was meant more to focus on the "Will BHS improve TERA?" part, then I also have an answer: "Yes. They will."
This issue has also been reported for review.

The question is whether EME will go through the hassle of getting the same optimisation KTERA has implemented here as well.

That's up to BHS.

As in forwarding the message to them, of course.

Probably already done and repeated countless times. But we know how BHS loves just showing the middle finger instead

Probably? It would be nice to know if they did that tho.
That is why these kind of threads appear time after time because this an ongoing issue since forever, and I don't recall any response from EME about the matter, at least through the past year.
I just hope to see a response from EME such as "We will forward the message to BHS". Of course get updated about the matter as well, if it's gonna happen or not. The worst thing is sitting in the dark, and that's personally the thing that puts me off about EME the most.
Not like they're going to read this message and change anyway, whatever.

This issue was already reported to Bluehole, but no updates have been provided back to me about progress.
Actually Feb. 31st. Get it right.

;)
We turned on today's event and made this post, in case you missed it:

http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/guardian-legion-bonus-rewards
Oh dang - just an oversight! Discounting now!
As I said, items that were left out of the event due to it's poor performance will be added either to a later event or to next month's calendar! Thanks!
PERMANENT! It's bankable as long as you don't equip it.
Well folks, the TERA Allegiance event is a complete and total enigma as to how and when it wants to work, so we are abandoning it for this weekend's event. BUT DON'T PANIC! We don't want you to walk away from the weekend empty-handed!

We have decided that instead of requiring cumulative time to distribute the daily rewards we promised, we are just going to mail them to you on first login for each day. Unfortunately, due to the ability to trade/sell/exploit many of the over-all rewards, we had to remove many of them from this event (with the exception of Dragon Scales, which we TRIPLED in quantity over the course of the weekend). However we will make those up by adding or increasing the calendar rewards for those items on next month's calendar where we can. As such, here is the structure and rewards you can look forward to:

From 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 [that's 12 hours from when we kick it off] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Saturday, 2/17 until 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

From 3 AM PST on Sunday, 2/18 until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19 [that's 24 hours] you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Valkyon Health Potion x 3
  • Friendly Feast x 2
  • Friendly Noctenium Infusion x 400
  • Apothecary Dye x 1
  • Strong Bravery Potion x 2
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir x 1
  • Dragon Scale x 3

In addition to celebrate the year of the dog, on your first login after 3 PM PST today, Friday, 2/16, until 3 AM PST on Monday, 2/19, you will receive in your parcel mail, within a few minutes of logging in:
  • Puppy Mask x 1
  • Pound Puppy Box x 1

If you don't get them the exact minute you log in, give it a few minutes, we've seen that sometimes the tool will send them one minute apart, so it could take up to 15 or 20 minutes to get all your goodies.

One last note: you may have noted that we have removed the Jiangshi hat accessory from this event; we will instead add it to a different future event.

Sorry for the last minute pivot but I have to give mad props to @SingleBear for testing, shifting, testing, proposing ideas, looking for solutions, testing, and finally executing.
Wouldn't be so bad if THE DANG EVENTS WORKED AS INTENDED.
The event (when we bend it to our will and make it work) will be for any level characters.

What's happening? This...

Unfortunately, even with some creative work trying to point tools to work at other environments, TERA Allegiance event is still not running on live. We are now looking into ways to make this work using other means. More to follow...

So, the asian gets offended by something on the NA server... Guess... you could play the asian versions just for a change of pace.

"The Asian...?" ...what do you mean by that?

Also, that is a terrible f*cking attitude to have. There are Asians, south-east Asians, Asian-Americans, and Asian-Canadians that play this game... tons of them. Many in my guild (even some Brazilian-Asians!)

Just because you don't celebrate something doesn't mean it's not important to someone else, or that they can't have an opinion about it because you don't. Terrible attitude you have.

@seandynamite

The event is still not working.

We are aware and working on it - I have posted an announcement post that we will update as we gain more information - currently it is working on internal test environments but not on live so we're trying to track down whatever technical glitch is blocking it.
UPDATE: The event is running as intended on our test environments but for some reason won't trigger on live. We are still looking into the technical issues that could be causing this.

You just won the internet.
We are currently looking into why the event did not trigger at the appropriate time this morning - @SingleBear or I will update this thread as soon as we have more information (or if we can just kick the stupid thing into working).

We are looking into reports that the event isn't working.

https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/21166/vanguard-rewards-what-does-increased-rewards-actually-mean#latest

What I want to know is what does Increased Reputation apply to at level 65, because I'm pretty sure it doesn't apply to Guardian Missions (the only active reputation source that is useful at level 65);.
I believe "Increased Reputation" actually means an increase in Vanguard Credits.
No, I am not leaving, haha. =)

When the Parcel Mail message was originally written, it was going to be a "Call to Arms" for the BAMassacre, but with the Event now disabled, we had to quickly pivot and re-write the message going out.
Sorry if it came off as a "Thanks for everything, peace" sort of message.
Due to unfortunate performance issues caused by the BAMassacre event, we will be ending the event Wednesday at 9am PST. This should give anyone still working on the 500 threshold time to complete it.

As a replacement, we will be enabling the Triple Item and Reputation Vanguard Request events. Triple rewards will run from Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 3am PST through Saturday, Feb 17 at 3am PST.
