It's fully updated now. I'll edit this thread later today to display the new contents.

I appreciate the change to the shop but now there's no time to really go and farm the tokens. Any chance that you guys will increase the spawn rate or do a special timeframe where it spawns really fast? It's really lame running around for 40mins and not finding a single chest.

We'll see what we can do. Considering there are also new items on the list, I think it's fair to give more tokens or extend a few things.

prices raised for cool cat cap and grand witches hat, may be other items just know those because I bought them yesterday, is this on purpose ?

Yes, that's on purpose. Those who spent their tokens during the first week the items were in the store saved a little.

Didn't they say the consumables will stay till the end of the event? I'm hoping this is some sort of mistake....

You guys have eagle eyes. It takes 10 minutes or so to update the shop, so you must have just looked right when it was being switched to the new contents.

So any idea when the store is going to be updated?

Its a new week

It's updated every Tuesday, shortly after the weekly server maintenance (which for tomorrow is from about 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. PDT).

Would be cool to have the alliance masks and other forgotten stuffs from ancient past, it's anniversary, but I guess nowadays it's just a word.

I think so. However there are a few of us here that have brought it up, maybe they will take it into consideration. ↓↓↓

Hmm... I think there's only one version of that mask. I wouldn't want to upset any of the players that earned it. Let me think about ways it could be done properly. Anniversary Tokens might not be the right place.

if spacecats is actually thinking how to implement it, that'd be amazing. i want to believe this so much, that they would bring them back, bubt I don't want to risk being heavily disappointed :(

I am looking into it, but whether we're able to implement something for the anniversary or not is another matter. We'll see!

Also, Unity Stole is always on my mind ;D

Just because I'm that guy:
Our current Battleground Highlight is Champion’s Skring, awarding three Anniversary Tokens to each victor.

Sorry I actually can't help it. I find errors on boxes of Cheerios.

DANG IT. Thanks, fixed :p

Hi all, today there was a reminder post on how to get Anniversary Tokens:
http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/get-the-lowdown-on-fifth-anniversary-tokens

The E-Line Coupe (otherwise known as the TERA Car) will be added at 500 tokens, and the permanent Disco Ball will be added at 600 tokens. Both will stay in the store until the end of the Anniversary events.

What the news post doesn't say (but I mentioned during today's stream) is that an upcoming Quiz Event will run at multiple times on each server along with BAM spawning events before the end of the month. Times for these events will be posted in a news post before they begin so you can plan on being online when they start.

Tokens have also been added to the in-game calendar for the remaining weekends in May, and next week will see Fraywind Canyon taking its turn as the highlighted Battleground.

I appreciate the feedback (even the negative) coming in regarding the anniversary celebration. We'll keep working to make the fifth anniversary a special event for players.

It says from the news post that the Anniversary Tokens rewards will "change each week". Will you be removing items as well (eg. Bonanza Boxes)?

No I think it's safe to say the lower cost consumable items and bonanza box will stay put.

@Spacecats Is Skyring supposed to only give 3 Anniversary tokens per win? Not 8 like Grid. Send help.

Yes, it's supposed to be 3. Skyring matches go a lot quicker, so we wanted to make sure the loot was still on par with PvE.

Dear CM @Spacecats I hope you'll hear my one and only wish in the game. Can you please consider adding the mask like the Alliance Mask or maybe similar that the eyes of the mask are glowing. Please? I know that some players say that it should be legendary and should never come back. I love doing battleground like CS, FWC and CU. But when I started playing the game, year ago.. I was still leveling up and explored the game because I don't have any friends that time. And when I hit lvl 65, Alliance was removed and was hoping that I can somehow get the mask because it's Anniversary of the game. Please consider :( :( I would be veryyyyyyy happy if this is implemented. Thanks

Hmm... I think there's only one version of that mask. I wouldn't want to upset any of the players that earned it. Let me think about ways it could be done properly. Anniversary Tokens might not be the right place.

@Spacecats

Can you guys consider adding smart dyads as a possible item for purchase with tokens in the upcoming weeks? Farming them in AB is kinda unreliable with the drop rate and there's currently no way to get them without strongbox jackpot events or KS credits anymore.

We'll definitely consider it. With mostly cosmetic items, the Anniversary Token shop is really meant to award fun items for participating in the game throughout the 5th Anniversary month. IMO a longer term method for earning things like Smart Dyad Niveot Structures and enchanting mats is needed for PvP.

Saying that, I realize that Bonanza boxes were just added to the week 2 shop. The intention there is to give people that aren't interested in costumes or saving tokens something extra to spend them on as they run dungeons. Again, not a long term replacement for good PvP rewards.
Yes, sorry for the delay. The store was changed this morning to week 2 contents. As promised, the week 1 contents that cost 350 or more were carried over into week 2. A couple of them also got price reductions.

  • Valliant Potion 3 Tokens
  • Strong Canephora Potion 5 Tokens
  • Strong Bravery Potion 5 Tokens
  • Enchanting Bonanza Box 14 Tokens
  • HYDRATH-Black Beret (Hair Slot) 90 Tokens
  • Fisherman's Cap (Hair Slot) 115 Tokens
  • Celestial Gold Weapon Skin (Smart Box) 200 Tokens
  • Black Catocaster (Back Slot) 275 Tokens
  • Riding Skill: Ni Hao (Permanent Character Mount) 280 Tokens
  • Riding Skill: Grizzle (Permanent Character Mount) 280 Tokens
  • Riding Skill: Ice (Permanent Character Mount) 280 Tokens
  • Blizzat's Remembrance (Smart Box) 350 Tokens
  • Conjurers Costume Kit (Smart Box) 350 Tokens
  • Flying Skill: Orville (Permanent Character Mount) 350 Tokens
  • Headliner’s Costume Kit (Smart Box) 375 Tokens
  • Formal Wear Costume Box (Smart Box) 450 Tokens
  • Illusionist's Costume Kit (Smart Box, Dyeable) 450 Tokens
  • Ingenue's Costume Kit (Smart Box, Dyeable) 475 Tokens


Also I want to reiterate that we're still exploring additional ways to earn Anniversary Tokens as the month's events roll on. A news post is on the way with some details. You guys can expect to see it later this week.

They are untradeable, thats fine. But were they also intended to be character locked and not account based?

They said they'll change the "unbankable" soon™.

Tuesday, May 16 to be precise :)
Catservant wrote: »
Thank you for reversing the "unbankable" part AND for carrying over high priced items to second week! Fantastic!

No problem! Please help spread the word if anyone mentions it in-game.

and thank you for dumping the duplicates.... lol, i tried a few times... as you can see im stuborn as a mule

No worries. The spam filter is weirdly sensitive sometimes, and it's kind of confusing when it kicks in (it even caught Denommenator's post a week or two ago, which I didn't think was possible ;D ). Thankfully it does stop a bunch of actual spam.
Xharz wrote: »
Please, at least carry the 350+ token items 2 weeks in the vendor, rather than 1 week, its jus unreasonable to give us 1 week to earn 300+ Tokens, 300 = 150 Medium DGs completed in a week, or 100 Top Tier DGs in a Week. On ONE character

Okay, I'll plan to carry those over to week 2. Everything 350 and over will continue to be in the store for an additional week.

Spacecats? Hello? why isnt my post here?

Your posts got stuck in the spam filter for some reason. They're visible now and I'll get rid of the duplicates.
The new prices are now in effect for week 1 Anniversary Token shop. A new item has also been added:
  • Valliant Potion: 5 Tokens
  • Strong Canephora Potion: 5 Tokens
  • Strong Bravery Potion: 5 Tokens
  • Federation Supply: Goddess's Blessing: 10 Tokens
  • True Ultimate Elin Elite Box (Loot Box): 25 Tokens
  • Squared Circle Loot Box (Males Only): 30 Tokens
  • Rowdy Rodeo Loot Box (Females Only): 30 Tokens
  • Chromaplasm Weapon Skin Loot Box: 32 Tokens
  • Rogues Half Mantle: 150 Tokens
  • Blizzat's Remembrance (Smart Box): 350 Tokens
  • Formal Wear Costume Box (Smart Box): 450 Tokens
  • Conjurers Costume Kit (Smart Box): 450 Tokens
  • Orville (Permanent Character Mount): 450 Tokens

As for the bankability, I agree it makes sense for them to be banked between characters. That will most likely get changed on Tuesday during maintenance, in time for week 2 store items. If there's a week 1 item you're really gunning for and you think it should be carried over to week 2, I'm open to that feedback given the changes made to the whole system. Things should be more consistent for the rest of the token event.

[...] it means we'll be able to lower the cost of items in the Anniversary Token store for the remainder of the event.

When will this change become effective?

In the next couple hours. I'll post here with an updated list.
Added the following to the top post...

EDIT [5/11/17] - During today's emergency maintenance, Anniversary Tokens were made untradable. This wasn't the purpose of the maintenance, but there was an opportunity to change these before the weekend and we took it. While this change might have mixed reactions, it means we'll be able to lower the cost of items in the Anniversary Token store for the remainder of the event, benefiting those earning them vs buying/selling them. Again, our goal with these tokens is to reward players actively participating in the 5th anniversary celebration. Making these untradable makes rewards more personal now that they can't simply be bought on the trade broker. It also means we'll be able to reward tokens more generously in some areas like special in-game events.
Edited my top post to include Gridiron BG Jackpot. The reward has been increased from 5 tokens to 8 per win. It seemed right to boost the PvP rewards since PvE had been increased.
Hi all,

Thanks to player feedback both in-game and here in the forums, we've decided to make the Anniversary Token event a bit more generous. A lot of people felt they had zero chance at getting the reward they wanted from the Anniversary Token shop, and we definitely want to reward active players with this celebration event. As of this post, the following rewards are in place. You can also see this in the in-game calendar announcements (now accessed through System Settings):

100% chance to drop 3 tokens (rolled loot, shared between players) for the following dungeons:
  • Kalivan’s Challenge
  • The Abscess

100% chance to drop 2 tokens (Per person) for the following dungeons:
  • Velik’s Hold
  • Demokron Factory
  • Kalivan’s Dreadnaught
  • Bathysmal Rise

100% chance to drop 3 tokens (Per person) for the following dungeons:
  • Velik’s Hold (Hard)
  • Velik’s Sanctuary
  • Timescape

Changed the highlighted dungeon, Demokron Factory (Hard), to a guaranteed 4 tokens per person (was 3).


Gridiron Battleground still awards 5 Anniversary Tokens for every victory.

We'll continue to monitor the rewards players are getting from this event along with your feedback. Remember that the contents of the Anniversary Token shop will change every Tuesday along with the highlighted dungeon and Battleground, so if you see an item you want in the store, don't count on it sticking around after next Tuesday. Happy hunting!
