Viewing dev posts for topic: elite-gift-box
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.

@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.
