Hello folks,

We have the free 2-weeks of Elite Status experience as a part of our pre-anniversary celebration. :)

We have started to deliver the two weeks of free Elite Status to the qualifying players who have completed any 3 of the 5 tasks before Friday, April 24. (Players who have already received the free Elite Status on Monday are not included.)

This will automatically apply to the qualifying accounts and their 2-week free elite status period will begin immediately. Please log out, exit and restart the launcher completely to see the free Elite Status reflected.

If you haven't had the chance to fulfill the tasks, you still have until 11:59 p.m. PDT on April 30 to do so, and we will resume the free Elite Status delivery on Monday.

For more details on the promotion, please check out the news post here.
It's... it's like "don't tap on the glass, you may scare the popo's". How cuuute!!! :D


We're giving you an extra nine days to earn up to ten many-colored loot boxes! Through April 30, log into En Masse Entertainment’s free-to-play third-person shooter, Zombies Monsters Robots (ZMR), and complete any map on Normal through Nightmare difficulty to earn many-colored loot boxes for your TERA account!

Servers will be restarted soon with a bunch of costumes.

Added the 3% RNG back. Added Reaper Chest. Made some more changes to try and get skyring not to draw in 6 minutes.
Bg and Thomastic, I PM'ed you two. :)
This Friday on Twitch, we are getting ready for the big Skyring Slam tournament!

We have the teams divided into the brackets, so check out the teams and the match schedule! We will be on stream discussing the teams and answer any questions!

So join us on Twitch at 3 p.m PDT and get hyped for the Skyring Slam weekend! :)

----------

After the TERA stream, we will continue the stream with some exciting ZMR action at 4:30 p.m. PDT!
OH i dunno what the deal is with 3% vs 1%. I set it to 3%. but it's not. so..... either everyone RNG's away to 3% or everyone plays at 1%.
Any other NON COSMETIC items missing? +15 is fixed (rebuy from KS merch) and Tonka has a fix for the reapers.

Cosmetic items incoming tmw. Costumes will be whatever smartbox i can find, and let me know what accessories...
Stopping by to clarify:

It has not been decided whether a free character slot will be provided with the gunner patch. With the gunner patch, the total number of possible character slots per server will be increased go 13.
Either way would be fine. :)
Hello folks,

Today we experienced multiple server crashes and instability due to a new item. (Please see this thread for more information on this.)

Three (3) Instance Reset Scrolls are sent to the players who are currently online in case of missed opportunities for the instance dungeons. Thank you for your patience.
I think the character may be stuck. D: Could you contact our Support Team with the character/server name that's stuck please?
IronWolf1991 on 04/23/2015, 01:40 PM - view
So let me understand. Smart Dyad were dropped in the boxes....server crash. Then Smart Dyad were no longer dropped and exchanged by the Normal Dyad... Now the fix. (server are offline atm)..
My question is, when they are back up, the Smart Dyad will be dropped again or not?

^_^
Minea on 04/23/2015, 12:31 PM
Hello folks,
We have temporarily changed how the Smart Dyad Niveots to work in the same way a regular Dyad Niveot Structures work. Also, we will keep the Smart Dyad Niveots in the strongbox event with a clear text tooltip that this is currently not working as intended. (We are bringing down the servers at 1 p.m. PDT to implement the messaging.) We are working to fix the issue, however, until then we recommend you to hold on to the items.
Okay. The servers should be up now. We see folks in game. Thank you for your patience.
Hmmm. I may need to find where I can buy this. :( How do you say this magical bread word?

Hyperica on 04/23/2015, 01:36 PM - view
Oh man I love that bread. I never made it myself though, I usually just buy it. I should look up a recipe. Maybe I could cut it into cute shapes and stick some in my purse when I go biking. *q*

Hyperica goes biking through the Middle Earth, confirmed.
The servers should be back up in about 20 minutes or so.
Trigg... Is this... the elven bread?.... To travel through the Middle Earth...? Looks delicious! :D
It's panko breading for katsu! :D *drool*
Hello folks,

We have discovered that using the new Smart Dyad Niveot Structure to combine three Niveots to create a non-existing Niveot causes the crash.

We have temporarily changed how the Smart Dyad Niveots to work in the same way a regular Dyad Niveot Structures work.

If You Have Smart Dyad Niveots

Please note that these will temporarily work as regular Dyad Niveots for now. The item name will stay as is and will continue to drop from the weekend strongbox event. However, we will be displaying a clear text tooltip that these are not functioning correctly. We recommend you to hold on to the items for now. Currently we don't have an ETA yet, but we are working to get a fix quickly.

If You Received Dyad Niveot Structures from the Strongbox Event

If you have received 5 or 10 Dyad Niveot Structures from the strongbox event between this morning's server downtimes, our Support Team will be able to exchange those items with 5 Smart Dyad Niveot Structures.

When contacting the Support Team, please include as much information as possible including: character + server name, the item + amount you have received from the strongbox, the approximate time.
Not yet. ^_^
We are bringing the servers down at 1 p.m. PDT (about 15 minutes away from now). I'd recommend waiting till the servers come back up from the maintenance, exit and restart the launcher completely then run a repair.
This has been a hectic day so far but we appreciate you all hanging in there with us.

Here is another picture I took a few weeks back when I went out to lunch on a weekend. <3 So hungry. ;_;

We are restarting all servers at 1 p.m. PDT (approximately 20 minutes from now). For now I'd hang tight until then.

What about those ppl who spent emp trying to get things not in the strongbox after crash... So blame them for not reading forum thread I guess?

Q.Q

On Smart Dyad Niveot Structures and Dyad Niveot Structures from the weekend strongbox event

When contacting the Support Team, please include as much information as possible including: character + server name, the item + amount you have received from the strongbox, the approximate time.
We'll have an updated message on the Dyad Niveot Structure in a little bit.
Hold on, folks, we'll have an updated messaging very soon, but I need to type it up first.
For clarity. The Smart Dyads are causing issues with our server. We are temporarily planning to change the way the Smart Dyads work. The Dyads will remain a unique item, but they will function as a Normal Dyad Niveot Structure.

This will allow us to work on a fix for the item. Once the item has been fixed, all Smart Dyads will function as originally intended.

Basically, after this temporary fix, don't use your Smart Dyad. Just hang onto them until we get a fix working. They will still be called "Smart Dyad" :)

- I'm not positive, but an issue might occur trying to load/teleport into an instance or battleground as well, I.E. Skyring, which would very problematic for obvious reasons. So in this case, even if all the reapers were moved to Velika, and +15 gear was provided, there might still be an issue if Reapers are unable to teleport. (Possible fix, if you can even do this: complete the 50-58 zone quests for the Reapers, I would think that would grant them the ability to teleport again?)


I was not able to test it this morning, but this is my feeling on it as well. While I couldn't test it, the way the system works, Reapers won't be able to teleport into BGs, which is obviously an issue.

The live servers are experiencing some issues, so we are working on that first. But we are looking into this too. I'll provide any updates as I get them
For the current server status, please see the pinned thread above. Thank you.

(I'm leaving this comment as a formal warning for offensive language use. Cut it out please. :()
Gets more coffee

We're looking into MT now. :(
10:51 a.m. PDT update:

We will be restarting the other 4 servers at 11:30 a.m. PDT (approximately 40 minutes from now).

Ascension Valley, Celestial Hills. Lake of Tears, and Valley of Titans will restart at 11:30 a.m. PDT.
Tempest Reach and Mount Tyrannas are both back up and available.

For the strongbox event, we're changing the Smart Dyad Niveots to regular ones to prevent the servers from crashing.

I think it's time for us to see if the hedgehogs should be called in.

Hamsters vs. hedgehogs

There is now a pinned forum thread to keep everyone updated here, but we'll keep this one open so we can just hang out and chat together. Editing the title to reflect the change.
Currently Tempest Reach and Mount Tyrannas are offline.

We are investigating the cause of the crash, and we will use this thread to update everyone.

I was going to eat all of the pizza but I may need to share it with the hamsters. :(

(We're looking into this, sorry about that, folks. I was just in too.)
TR lives! Livessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!

(The server is back up. Thank you for hanging out with me here while the server was resting. <3)
Megwa on 04/23/2015, 09:37 AM
I'll chip in! Minea, what toppings would you like?

I'll do almost any normal toppings but if you put olives I'll throw a fit. xD

Now you guys are making me Google pizza and I'm so so hungry...

I don't know but TR is super cute. like Iisla said. (Disclaimer: I don't know.)

^_^

So hungry, please, don't talk about food.
We're looking into this. <3
This is complete. Thank you for your patience.
This is complete. Thank you.
I know I'm being selfish enjoying your company during maintenances here, but today we needed the maintenance to start the strongbox event. ^_^ <3
Cookies and cream! (I think. ^_^) I haven't tried it yet though, they have so many varieties so I usually end up not being able to pick.

Zoknahal, use your phone? :D


Btw the servers are up early!
We'll bug this. Thanks.
This thread is a bit later than I wanted today! :(

But here is a picture for you I took the other day at a Korean market (because popori!), and I hear the maintenance is going well so we will probably open the servers up a bit before 9 a.m. PDT. :)

i'll check on this stuff in the morning as well as the awakening probabilities.
Yeah, you can awaken. The cost is lowered, and it's 100% chance to enchant.

I'll make a list in the morning and pass it on, so keep updating this thread if there are other things as well
The Smart Dyad Niveot Structures is an item that guarantees at least one of the effects of the 3 crystals you used to combine. It is untradeable.

It’s time to stock up on strongbox keys, because TERA’s strongbox jackpot weekend is back with new rewards for our new continent!

Beginning on Thursday, April 24 (after maintenance) and continuing until maintenance on Tuesday, April 27, every locked strongbox you open gives you a chance to find one of three special jackpots to help you prepare for the punishing conditions in Arx Umbra. Be on the lookout for rewards of 1,000 Tier 6 feedstock, Glacial Expedition gear boxes, or 5 Smart Dyad Niveot Structures. These last items are especially useful, as they allow you to combine three fine niveots into a new dyad niveot. (Dyad niveots are indestructible crystals that have at least one of the effects of the crystals used.)

The jackpots apply to the following items:

• Locked Krysteel Strongbox
• Locked Linsteel Strongbox
• Locked Norsteel Strongbox
• Locked Shadsteel Strongbox
• Locked Extensive Strongbox
• Locked Spellbound Strongbox
• Locked Strongbox
• Locked Pocket Pet Strongbox

Don't have enough strongbox keys? Drop by the TERA Store in game or online to stock up and save on stacks of 10, 20, and 50 keys!

The server is currently up, but is not visible. Characters have been passed over to our operations team, but have not been copied to Wyrmgorge yet.

Tonight or Tomorrow morning is seeming to be the plan. Keep in mind that some of the items may be missing at first, we always seem to miss something, so make sure to let us know on the forums, not in general on the server.
Hello everyone,

Our service provider will be performing a maintenance starting at 10 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 24. During the maintenance hours, individual players may get disconnected and be unable to reach our services for approximately 15 minutes. The specific window of time will vary for each player.

Time
: 10 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 24 - 3 a.m. PDT on Saturday, April 25

Service Impact
: You may be disconnected or be unable to reach our services (game servers, websites, forums, and store) for approximately 15 minutes sometime during the maintenance window. The specific window of the service unavailability will vary for individual players.

What to Do When Disconnected
: If you are disconnected at any time during the maintenance, please wait 15 minutes and try reconnecting to the services. We also recommend that you do not engage in in-game activities that may have a negative impact on the gameplay due to the service unavailability such as instances with daily entry limit, long cool down time, etc.

Due to the nature of this maintenance, our Support Team is unable to provide assistance with the service unavailability. Thank you for your patience.

I received your PM at 7:31 p.m. yesterday. Currently I have 29 PM's that I haven't read, so I'm sorry that I haven't gotten to yours.

In terms of your topic, the Support Team is the only team that can help and discussing moderation action is against the forum rules. We are happy to take another look at an incident since we are all humans and can make a mistake, but breaking forum rules by creating/using an alternate forum account, discussing moderation and "making a stink about it on the forums" is definitely NOT the way to do this and I highly discourage you.

I have had Elite status for a long time, yet when I logged on earlier today, my Elite bar was gone.
I had to redo my Elite account status. Not sure why, as I am not reading anything here about current Elite accounts needing to be re-applied.

If I get double charged Ima be pissed.

Please contact our Support Team and we can help figure out what happened.
I missed this! D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:
It's still here! I moved your post to Off-Topic as this is the Official TERA Forums.

If you have questions on moderation, please PM me. Thanks! :)
Hello,

As this is the Official TERA Forums, I'm moving this thread to Off-Topic for now.

Have you checked out the ZMR website? We do not have a dedicated forums for ZMR, as reflected in our Community section of the website. We have a wonderful ZMR community on Reddit, you will see some our most active players as well as the En Masse staff including the producer, Denommenator.

We were having a connection issue in the late afternoon with TERA, but I haven't seen anything for ZMR.

I'd check out the Game Info section of the official ZMR section, especially the Level Rewards that's been revamped recently with the Game of Drones update. We are also hosting a ZMR wiki contest to update the information since we've had a lot of content patches and updates to the game.
It seems like this has been resolved. Please let us know if this spikes up again.
Greetings Everyone!

Tomorrow on Twitch, it's time! We are going to be doing a special Twitch stream starting at 4:00pm to seed the Skyring Slam teams into the brackets. We are going to find out what team your team will be playing against!

Following the Skyring Slam team seeding stream, at 5:00pm PDT, we are going to learn all about how to play Reapers in PvP with Towlot of MT, and Zui of TR! This will be our very first "round table" style discussion with more than one guest!

Stream Links

Glyphs:

Previous Streams:

Berserker in PvP with Painwheel
Sorcerer in PvP with Giraffee
Priest in PvE with Serena
Slayer in PvP with Mudkip

So make sure to stop by at 4:00pm for Skyring Slam team seeding, and at 5:00pm Pacific to learn how to play a Reaper in PvP! We will be live at a special new Wednesday stream time on our official Twitch page.

-Tonka
All servers are having issues at the moment. :(

We're investigating the cause.
I understand that you had a bad experience and are upset, but it's never a great idea to generalize people. I'm sure we've all had bad experiences as well as good. I'd like to encourage you not to put a generic label or a thread title. Also in the future, let's make sure to focus the discussion focus to be TERA and its community (vs. other e-sports-worthy games, etc.). Thanks.
We're looking into this. :(
Currently no plans for this, sorry.


Looking to strike extra fear into your enemies? Why not pick up one of our new crates and get your weapon a little something special? Each weapon crate is guaranteed to contain an instance reset scroll, and may contain a fire- or ice-themed dragon weapon skin or useful consumables.

• Fire Drake Weapon Crate
• Ice Drake Weapon Crate

These cool new loot boxes are available in the TERA store starting now, so get them while they’re hot...or cold!
The votes have been counted, and the community has decided on their top 4 Teams. For the sake of fun, I will list half of the teams, and where the community has placed them in the power ranking. Remember, only the top 4 teams based on votes will have any impact in the way the brackets are seeded.

This power ranking was based on votes indicating whether the player voting believes that team belongs in the top 4. Each voter received 4 votes and was required to pick 4 separate teams. Here are the rankings as chosen by our community!

1 Giga Ahhhh Shiba - Haimon, Gold, Juddo, Stunball, Suntail
2 Ecks Dee Squiggly- Tsumori, Painwheel, Please.Heal.Me, Nun, Striken
3 Kimchi Corn Dog - Xilian, Mayfair, Luminously, Full.Resurrection, Dark.Kaia

Grats on the Skycastle, Altrius! And very happy to hear about your guild as well. Having a good guild is such a wonderful thing, I miss it dearly! *is all jelly* xD

It sounds like your school is really good at trying to decrease the stress for the students. Good luck on the finals next week, Battle!

Anjeliers, your master crafter characters are always welcome to CH. :P


Btw, the servers are back online! I see lots of people!
Crap, I forgot the name. It's the one for the mystic. I only knew the name of the dropped one (Plumbwand), so someone had to tell me what the name of the crafted one was so I could buy the recipe. :)

I'm just beginning to drink my morning coffee and now I feel like the day is starting. I usually drink soy latte if I'm purchasing one outside, or I just mix in almond milk to black coffee if I'm making them myself. What do you drink?

Heya Ben, you only have about an hour! :D
Shirohige on 04/21/2015, 07:52 AM - view
what about those that already have Elite @.@.. what do we get?

You guys get free EMP. :)
Good morning! Anyone studying for the finals yet? :D

I bought the recipe for my Quick Discovery weapon last night. Now I just need to get my crafting up! Crafting's been draining my funds a bit though, so I may have to sell stuff. ;_;

Anyway, I took a picture from our office for you guys this morning, but from a different angle today. :)



Also here is a picture of coffee. Coffee is so very much needed in the morning...

I don't have a date for us yet. We're looking at them though. :)
Today's batch delivery is complete. The next time will be on Wednesday, April 22. :)
Today's batch is complete. We will apply the next set on Wednesday. Thank you.
We're starting to deliver the free elite status for today and will use this pinned thread for updates. :)
Hello folks,

We are beginning to celebrate our third anniversary by inviting our players to complete in-game tasks to earn 2 weeks of free Elite Status!

In our news post, we mentioned that we will be applying the free elite status every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting April 20.

We have started to delivery the two weeks of free Elite Status to the qualifying players for Monday, April 20. We will update this forum thread when today's delivery is complete.

If you haven't had the chance to fulfill the tasks, no worries! You have until 11:59 p.m. PDT on April 30 to do so, and we will continue to deliver the free Elite Status on Wednesday, Friday, etc. as planned.

For more details on the promotion, please check out the news post here!
We can just give the blue crystals, just tell us which ones you want and we can add it to the NPCs.

Also, be as specific as possible, especially with cosmetics. Saying "That one hat that came out last year and looked cool" won't help us find the ID for that specific item :P
Power ranking votes are cut off tonight, make sure to get your votes in!
If you have questions on how the bracket works, please look at last years Skyring Slam tournament. Pora Elinu will be replaced with Highwatch this year.

We will be doing the team seeding live on our official Twitch channel this Wednesday at 4:00pm Pacific, so make sure to come out and find out what time your favorite team will play!

Note:

-> All times listed below are in pacific time only.
-> All matches will be streamed on our official Twitch page

You are thinking right on the money Asellus. Here is a VERY early idea for a tournament setup for the future. I have thought about it in the past, but If this tournament is any indication, more players want to participate, not less.

Don't use this as an official declaration of this tournament happening. Like I said, a lot of moving parts lead to our tournaments and this is all theoretical.

Format

The tournament will accept as many teams as possible, potentially up to 64 teams per server if that many teams even apply, but we will work with what we get and stay flexible. Applications will have to be completed several weeks before the scheduled tournament date to allow appropriate amount of time to setup web brackets, servers, etc. Especially if we are accepting 100+ teams.

The playoff bracket would be a 24 team tournament in the same format that we have now: Single Elimination. 4 Teams will represent each server and will all be teams that made it through the Qualifying Round.

Qualifying Rounds

Each server will host their own qualifying rounds. Teams will ONLY play against teams from their own server in this stage.

The qualifying rounds will decide who makes it out of the server and into the playoff bracket. The qualifying rounds will take place over 2-3 weekends, depending on the amount of teams accepted.

For example (This is not an indication of population, just for an example. Please don't read into this...):

10 teams apply from CH
10 teams apply from AV
16 from TR
22 from LoT
22 from VoT
56 from MT

In this case, CH and AV will play on Saturday of Weekend One. TR plays on Sunday of Weekend One.

LoT & VoT play on Saturday of Weekend Two. MT plays on Sunday of Weekend Two.

Playoffs + Final on Saturday of Weekend Three.

Something like that.

Playoffs

Playoffs would happen all in one day, depending on how many teams we decide is appropriate to allow. I like the format we use now (4 individual single elim brackets meeting for Semi and Grand finals), especially since we would have a qualifier, so this will take some finagling to make it work.

There is a tournament format out there that will allow more members of our community a chance to play, while also still highlighting the very best players. I think this format would be very good, allowing just about anyone the ability to compete, and having a Playoff for the stand out teams. But that's the future, so I'm going to continue to focus on Skyring Slam 2 and the Gunner for now :)
Heya Saku,

I think you should go to sleep for now. The elite status will still be here when you wake up. Sweet dreams! <3

(We'll comment and let you know when we start applying the elite status.)

- If you already have elite, you get 500 EMP for free. Nothing you need to do.
- all and every BAM counts. From lvl 20 Basilisk to vault BAM. Just kill 10 of them.
- If EME does not give a specific starting date, it's always the date of the announcement. If it would be since start of Tera ever, everyone would be eligible and they shouldn't have to put up conditions at all.
- 10 vanguard quests are fine, too.
- kumasylum is a BG. Win 3 of them until 30th and everything's good.
- the code elitefreedays does not interefere with this event. Even if you already got 3 free elite days, you will be eligible to get free elite out of this event.
- a system guild ("executor guild") is fine, too.
- you can get any help you want. In some cases, you can't do it alone (e.g. BGs or dungeons). However, make sure the BAM counts because you have to be in battle range to have it count.

I'll write it here again: this is a promotion and EME set very low goals everyone can achieve, so there's no need to panic.

Edit: In your achievements, there's a BAM counter. I don't know how far it goes but yesterday I leveled to 20, killed 10 BAMs and the achievement "Ten big ones" popped up. As far as I remember, you can also see the overall number of BAMs killed .. somewhere.

Confirming what Saphir said is all correct. :)

(If you're getting help from other players, please make sure you're in the same team and in range.)
This was included in team sign-ups, but the only official things we are taking action against are jumping and macros:

"The use of Jumping and/or Macros during your match in Skyring Slam may result in a disqualification for your team.

En Masse Entertainment recommends that every participant in this tournament unbinds their jump key to prevent any accidental jumping during this tournament."
