Looking into this. It's hard to say whether this was at all intentional on Bluehole's part (since it does look fine with some hats), but we'll try to get to the bottom of it.

It is great that you guys gonna look into it, but while at it, consider that some players do like the ears poking through. This is a good chance to ask BHS to work on a ear toggle. Just like the toggle for hair, they can work on a toggle for elin ears, castanic and amani horns, to poke through hats, or to magically disappear into thin air. Poporis are excluded cause their ears seem to pierce through anything, even solid metal.

THIS. I hate it when my ears get lopped off.
Discussion of 3rd party apps is not allowed. The rules are the rules. Nothing really to discuss. Thread closed.
@Spacecats I think you should investigate a little bit more how much ping do Aussie players get,
hope latency issues gets actually fixed this time, which I doubt it, since its an ongoing problem since a long time
and several statements about the issue being investigating have been made before.

I'm just going to go ahead and drop this in here...

What About Proxies?
Services that promise to improve your ping and decrease lag may sound promising, but they are frequently used by hackers and criminals who want to remain anonymous. Although we do not block them by default, a proxy or server host will be blocked if it becomes a popular tool for criminal behavior.

Not all old players are like that. As a somewhat older player, I have no problem helping or answering questions for new or old players. And some older players have helped me a lot. Even some players who are at a higher skill level don't mind running with casuals outside of competitive play. There are helpful people in places you don't expect - you don't have to be popular to be skillful. All you have to do is ask nicely. You'll find all kinds of people anywhere on the internet. You always hear about the toxic and negative but rarely the positive. Tera isn't any different.

I said it multiple times, that I am not referring to all of them, I said even one or two players can have a very negative impact. Look, I don't say lets be saints, I am an @ss in game myself, but when it comes to new players, I take a bit more responsibility because in the long run, they are gonna be part of our community and help me even more than I helped them. For example a new Tank died 2 or 3 times in KC, was bashed by 1 players badly, 3 other members thanked Tank, but that one player can cloud other 3 attitude, that is what I am saying.

I am just saying community's behavior and culture can bring more activity. Population is not really an issue right now.

The guy in this clip has sub 10ms ping in TR server (yes he has under 10ms), and look at his lagspike.

I've seen the clip, and it shows the guy using a DPS meter, so please don't post it in the forums. It's also not clear from the video what his ping is, so I'm not sure how he can claim a latency of 10ms, especially when that's an insanely low ping. The video illustrates a huge lag spike for sure, but a 10ms ping during a lag spike makes no sense even if it's completely the fault of the server. It would go up.

The question is "where does it go up?" For instance, if you're playing from Australia and your latency suddenly jumps from 40 to 100 as it routes through Japan, that tells us something whether we at EME are able to address it or not. What if everyone routing through Japan is having the same lag? It's why we've been collecting as many diag reports as possible, because they show the actual path between your PC and the server.

The lag people talk about is nothing to do with ping lag, its literally server lag which everyone experiences in the moment. Its nothing to do with the location of the person and this has been the case for a long time.

When you're in a guild discord with 20 people from different locations, different providers and running different instances but we all lag at the same time you just can't try to ask players where they're playing from when its your servers that are having these issues.
waiting my ban
the only thing makes me keep playing is the proxy

VPN lets your launcher comes up ready to play, when you wanna get to the game, if you have it running, you can't get into the game. There are legit stuff like WTFast, Pingzapper and some vpns that help and there are illegal ones that changing IP not to be detected.

EME knows about these stuff, and also I don't see any reason to discuss about this. It is a good move, any further discussion can lead to unpleasant stuff.

I suppose we need a discussion thread about this to see what others think about it.

I am glad that EME is taking down cheaters really serious and will take instant actions right away, however I'm a bit concerned of how far people would go as for as 3rd party tools.

Honest players uses them to help improve their game, gathering statistics, and more importantly: to give them motivation to continue playing the game. So what if some [filtered] will go through youtube and streams, finds someone using those tools, and ends up reporting them. Will they be a target to potential permanent bans? The reason I say this is because Noesis mentions "any third party tool or modification".
@Tenshi1

I lost count on how many dungeons I have been with Valks (that aren't new to tje game with other dps class) not iframing, not using motes at all or panicking and using al motes near them when they only neee one.

This kind of problems are bad habits from several veteran players that got too dependant to their end-game gear and lose or not once developed his skills as players.

That's why I think many ppl find this change to be "annoying". Same for healers and tanks. Ppl seem way too gear dependant and wont try to iframe damage that should be avoidable.

I know it doesn't prove anything but when I lvl up my Valk I was the only one to not die on the low lvl dungeon and if I had to back off to wait healing the dps from party decreased a lot. Almost all my IM parties were of 3-4 Valks and one healer, being priest the most common on them.
eme want kill the game for sure

Same trouble. Bought at tradebroker 2 banks, already used. Suddenly found this topic (or similar) --- going into acc and found that nothing open, and I have a character that gave 3 bank slots. So I interest --- where is my money??? And where is at least 1 bank slot as I supposed to get at 50 lv???

While it was like at past with "untradable" status it was fine. I understood what i'm doing. But still now --- when I checking box at BuddyUp menu (in game) --- it shows that at 50 lv must be 1 bank slot.

I still have not found where does mentioned such changes --- they are not on patch notes, and no at additional info on "snout of web page".

Seeing how EU is getting it "early May", and it's already been released in JP (which was the only region to get valks later than NA), I'd say we have a good chance at the 9th :p

EU doesn't have a concrete date, and i'm p sure jp JUST received the patch this week if i'm not mistaken, with both of them having completely different release schedules post-patch. it's clear that these patches are possibly being tailored to region. when we consider NA, i'm really not sure may 9th would be the smartest date with everything currently going on under the hood for EME, and who knows what our patch will look like. i'd consider this a wrong move when there's still things to be addressed when our region clearly isn't ready just yet.

i mean even if we wanted to consider something like the anniversary event only, pushing it fullscale after a new dungeon/gear patch?? tell me where that would make sense when everyone will be completely tied up with new dungeons, gear, and a brand new seasons market as well.
Its reward system is broken. Keep praying to skywhale for a fix.
Same thing for me. I played on EU when the Valkyrie released 1 week before NA and even with 300ms+ I dind't get that much of lag during my progression. And here on NA with 170ms I get a lot of lag and its not even ping spikes its pure lag/delay, and constantly dc.

Yes it's DX9, which my GTX 550 Ti LOVES! In fact that's part of why I have same FPS as others with OP graphics cards - old game that runs "well" on old hardware, with a good processor.
Update: The TERA Rewards system has a patch, we are creating a build, and it is looking like we will have some downtime tomorrow to update TERA. Once that goes live, we'll turn TERA Rewards back on!


Found this little gem while digging around, not sure how long its been there.
Sorry for the dropped frames :( everything was fine in the raw file.
@Valkala

I was givin my comment abou the consoke remark the OP did on his post.

About EU version, I can believe that maybe they have less issues like that but I don't think they are FREE from the issue at all.

However as the OP and You mentioned if they have a more stable server for their users then is more apealing to play.

That is something many players do, if their region server gives them worst latency they switch to another region.

That is not a solution but in US having a server working for some region ie. Pacific zone, may get issues for ppl on East Coast. It is that US routes are has bad traces and then ppl in the same country can't have the same average experience as it should be.

EU has now free lag/ping spike server, but we in NA still having problems. The only thing we have going for is doing dungeons or bg's, which are heavily depended on stable servers.

En Masse Entertainment always strives to be equitable when it comes to reports of cheating. After all, what one player perceives as a hack might just be another player’s amazing skills.

But lately we’ve noticed a growing trend toward players openly hacking and exploiting (and even some players offering hacking apps as a service), and we’re here to make this absolutely clear: Cheaters, your days are numbered.

Any third party tool or modification of the TERA client is a violation of the TOS and will fall under this. There won't be any exceptions. If you are thinking, "but what about XXXXX? Is it ok?" the answer is: "No. It's not." and you should expect action to be taken.

We’ll be scouring our reports and logs, and any player identified as cheating will be banned from TERA —permanently.

Respect the spirit of the game: Uninstall those third party tools today.

First one!
We need one PVP server and one PVE server. Just merge completely. Maybe let CH have their RP fun, but other than that, one server per each play style.
i'm holding out for a may 16/23 push, if that. i highly doubt they'd screw over their new playerbase that just joined with us by dropping a brand new gearing/dungeon patch, hasn't even been a month. i'd like to think that they clearly still have business to address before this season plays out (anniversary event and fixing major systems like the rewards store). they also need to properly give players, especially the new ones, a heads up weeks ahead of time to prepare for a new season like they usually do.
If you're looking for a "something good" reward that wouldn't harm the economy in any way - I say some Smart Dyads here or there wouldn't hurt so much.
I have 50/50 set on my Valk.

Inner is power, half of jewerly crit, half power and it works pretty good :) still dealing a lot of dmg.
It'd be a fun event if they added something like 7-day disco ball or the race car mount. You can easily imagine all the players spamming that stuff in Highwatch and Velika. There's plenty of ways to show player appreciation that isn't free diamonds.

What disappoints me the most is the fact that EME even considered player satisfication with diamonds an option, and worst off added an ugly 7-day backpack as a replacement. How out of touch with the player base do you have to be for BOTH of those things to occur.

I mean they did in other regions after Valkyrie release and because HH30 won't be out for 30 weeks for every raid member to get a brooch who cleared consistently.
And because they realized that it created a frustration within their playerbase?

EME has never implemented double drop in HH. Players have expressed their frustration since like week 2 about the obtainability of Marrow Brooch. The easiest solution was just to add it as a possible exchange for like 100 Behemoth Essence. They've had almost half a year to address it. They haven't made any discussion posts regarding it, so it's clear they don't care and don't intend to change anything. So yeah, it sucks that you might not get a brooch, but begging them now with 2 weeks left isn't gonna change much.

?_? i know they never implemented it, when did I ever say that

And the fact that other regions done it may have an effect don't you think?
They will have double brooch drop for 3-4 weeks only too. Even if for 2 weeks it would be great :pleased:
But I know it won't happen, they deleted my previous thread about it too, and it was 2 weeks ago... so yeah, they are too dum and busy with other [filtered] going on like exploits, calendar items, anniversary event, bugs, etc. too even care about this. But the hope lives :chuffed:

Not trying to deny your problem I will just say what I see on several games when I play on PS4 and xbox one (I acknowledge that I don't play MMORPGs on those systems).

There is not a single game that is Free of lag, increase of ping, loss of package or whatever us the correct way to say it.

I play often with my brother throught PSN or xbox live and games like CoD, BB, GG, The Last of US and many others have been showing these kinds of issues for US.

Truth to be told is that I play about 1 thousand of miles away from those servers and my brother plays even more farther.

I am conviced that having several server on diferent geographical location for ppl to choose which is better is the best option to reduce lag in most situations, but that will break the current comunities inside game and is not $$$ worth sometimes for the publishers managing the servers.

You're missing the entire point. TERA has issues that are more than just ordinary lag, and other versions don't have it.

I begin to wonder to add crit power at some point and some critical factor to stop looking at white numbers.

You dont need to reach 200 to make a good amount of damage on guile so I will try to figure out what woukd be best to get, some increase on critical factor or rather more critical power.

Several skills that crits more of the time with +60 critical factor coul get better damage from critical factor rather than power.

Does anyone out of Korea had tried some critical power?

Don't. Stacking crit higher than +50 on valk is pointless and actually lowers your dps.

Is it? I haven't been focusing on crit and I'm over +50

Everything rolled well and a quat+ you would be at a maximum of +52 if you don't go with any double power rolls.

I found the reason why I was +68. I had crit rolls on my weapon. Changed those to the "Increase power against enraged monsters" and it took me down to +32.

So I shouldn't have any crit at all? That will boost the dmg my crits make for my Val?

Having more power will make your basics, skills and crits do more damage. Having more crit will make you deal crits more often.

Several guides tell that staking crit at a certain amount is ideal and stacking more will mean you will lose dps because the skills that deal most of your dps already get near 100% at that cap.

That's why ppl like Ketoth make their trail and error to get the most eficient amount crit that you need on that class.

How do you know the population are low?

Some players were saying game is not alive, dying, they died, game still alive. Honestly after massive decline after Gunner patch I didn't see myself come to game and thought the game won't last, but I got back and the game still alive.

Problem with players not running stuff goes back to community's attitude, If EME make a mega server and many players stay toxic, that will kill the game immediately.

Lets talk about late game and how this works, It's not about everyone, unfortunately one toxic player can effect the newcomers more than good players, that is why I wanna mention some stuff here. so Again I am not referring to everyone, we have way too many friendly players.

1. Older players are not so polite towards new players or casual players, basically if you ask a question, you might get stupid question or someone gives some ideas that the other don't like it, they just start to be toxic and if they made friends, they are gonna start to behave the same thing. So the new players in couple of minutes gonna feel and see some disheartening behaviors.
2. Older players, don't wanna teach new players. Lets get skilled players for all kind of dungeons and get on with it. And when skilled players are not around, you see problem rises. You see players have to do IMS, barely experienced players get to IMS cause they don't wanna stuck with 4 new players, IMS becomes cancerous, and players barely accepted by parties
3. Scamming new players, if they are selling something, if they try to sell EMP, some older players see that as an opportunity to make a fortune, I saw this happening and it reflects very badly.
4. +15 demand and inspecting insults, if you have +12 mid gear, you are casual, you are noob, you are not accepted, you will be trolled and else. On some parties, even normal dungeon or even event raids you see that demand. you say something on global or give an idea, some players inspect you, and then started to be toxic as heck, they don't think if that is an alt or some players want to have fun with game in different ways. Just toxicity which effects negatively again.
5. All that about parties and HW/Velika afkers, they afk there and once awhile start an insult that might lead to a negative argument on global and effect newcomers badly.
6. immediate kicks from BGs and IMS, like wait and see if that player is familiar or not. Kicks at 1st glance of inspecting.
7. Train of blaming tanks/healer, that happens on BGS, dungeons. This one actually effecting the community effectively, I knew friends that loved supporting, they fell in love with the challenge of healing on Tera, but the train of blames, sent them off the game.

As I said, it is not a reflection of major end game players, nope, just these attitude can be seen. Fix the attitude and force those players with that attitude on your servers, you see much more activity on late game stuff.

FF, for example, It evolved, why? FF Community wanted it to evolve. They made it happen, they still can do better. Or we had casual players started a raid for HH and in the end finished HH and they are not casual anymore. So 30 more hardcore players for that server.

Community's behavior defines each servers activity, it is not about population.

Thought FF was just a server who told pvp'ers to get gud, and had CU alliances and what not.

Move on guys, they will not change it back to diamond as reward. Just accept that once again credit card players won.

It's a good move on EME's part to take away diamonds, although I do agree the replacement cosmetic could've been a lot better. They should've added something like a nontradeable 7-day unity scarf or a 7-day perm disco ball, or a 7-day version of the bubble race car mounts. Anything that would be fun or creative to celebrate the game's anniversary.

A diamond is not the solution. Why do credit card players win? There's plenty of ways to make gold in the game without swiping.

Selling items from supercede tokens exchanges gold between players. Selling diamonds to the npc doesn't, it generates gold into the system. Not to mention all the items from tokens are materials which are consumed upon usage. There's a huge difference between the two.

I'm over exaggerating a little, but it feels empty. And it would make sense to merge those low pop servers anyways.

Idk about you, but i prefer 2 populated server than 4 low pop servers.

Yes I prefer more lag as well. How about they do something about the dungeon lag that been around for several months before even considering the option of a server merge.

Nice try. Spacecats kindly showed us an image of how the drop increase in an instance can be done by changing a simple number from a 1 to 2 during the latest event. The fact that they haven't done so in 23 weeks means they don't plan on it. So yeah, you sorta are asking for the impossible.

I did watch one KTera Valk streamer (3.6mil Nightmare Lache back in Januaray), and looked at their current stats. They had 0 bonuses to their Crit Power.

What about their crit factor?

I begin to wonder to add crit power at some point and some critical factor to stop looking at white numbers.

You dont need to reach 200 to make a good amount of damage on guile so I will try to figure out what woukd be best to get, some increase on critical factor or rather more critical power.

Several skills that crits more of the time with +60 critical factor coul get better damage from critical factor rather than power.

Does anyone out of Korea had tried some critical power?

Don't. Stacking crit higher than +50 on valk is pointless and actually lowers your dps.

Is it? I haven't been focusing on crit and I'm over +50

Everything rolled well and a quat+ you would be at a maximum of +52 if you don't go with any double power rolls.

I found the reason why I was +68. I had crit rolls on my weapon. Changed those to the "Increase power against enraged monsters" and it took me down to +32.

So I shouldn't have any crit at all? That will boost the dmg my crits make for my Val?
So I read something about them taking out the gems, is it intended or a bug? Someone gave me a code a bit ago on a diff server, and I never got my gems for the first boxes we used to get them.

Kinda sucks for me 'cause I use that money for inventory expansions when I first get to Velika
I just realized I haven't been DC'd in a good while :o And I've not really had lag/that much lag since I followed this one optimization guide

But I really wish WE didn't have to optimize the game ourselves...
if you have high ping mayb 250ms you can do it too.

but trust me it is better that you can't do that :)
............BR is coming back too..?

Awesome.....

I hate that dg xD

The funniest quest in the game IMO x3

*cough*Healers/tanks mainly. I can not tell you how many times I've been in a lvling dg with a bad healer

And someone needs to tell them that they need to turn on that glyph that increases the healing lock-on skill by two. This really irritates me as one who also plays healers. That's the very first glyph every healer needs to turn on
Yeah first looks better :)
I don't know what server you're playing on but I'm in FF and there's always a crowd in HW
thank you )
How do you know the population are low?

Some players were saying game is not alive, dying, they died, game still alive. Honestly after massive decline after Gunner patch I didn't see myself come to game and thought the game won't last, but I got back and the game still alive.

Problem with players not running stuff goes back to community's attitude, If EME make a mega server and many players stay toxic, that will kill the game immediately.

Lets talk about late game and how this works, It's not about everyone, unfortunately one toxic player can effect the newcomers more than good players, that is why I wanna mention some stuff here. so Again I am not referring to everyone, we have way too many friendly players.

1. Older players are not so polite towards new players or casual players, basically if you ask a question, you might get stupid question or someone gives some ideas that the other don't like it, they just start to be toxic and if they made friends, they are gonna start to behave the same thing. So the new players in couple of minutes gonna feel and see some disheartening behaviors.
2. Older players, don't wanna teach new players. Lets get skilled players for all kind of dungeons and get on with it. And when skilled players are not around, you see problem rises. You see players have to do IMS, barely experienced players get to IMS cause they don't wanna stuck with 4 new players, IMS becomes cancerous, and players barely accepted by parties
3. Scamming new players, if they are selling something, if they try to sell EMP, some older players see that as an opportunity to make a fortune, I saw this happening and it reflects very badly.
4. +15 demand and inspecting insults, if you have +12 mid gear, you are casual, you are noob, you are not accepted, you will be trolled and else. On some parties, even normal dungeon or even event raids you see that demand. you say something on global or give an idea, some players inspect you, and then started to be toxic as heck, they don't think if that is an alt or some players want to have fun with game in different ways. Just toxicity which effects negatively again.
5. All that about parties and HW/Velika afkers, they afk there and once awhile start an insult that might lead to a negative argument on global and effect newcomers badly.
6. immediate kicks from BGs and IMS, like wait and see if that player is familiar or not. Kicks at 1st glance of inspecting.
7. Train of blaming tanks/healer, that happens on BGS, dungeons. This one actually effecting the community effectively, I knew friends that loved supporting, they fell in love with the challenge of healing on Tera, but the train of blames, sent them off the game.

As I said, it is not a reflection of major end game players, nope, just these attitude can be seen. Fix the attitude and force those players with that attitude on your servers, you see much more activity on late game stuff.

FF, for example, It evolved, why? FF Community wanted it to evolve. They made it happen, they still can do better. Or we had casual players started a raid for HH and in the end finished HH and they are not casual anymore. So 30 more hardcore players for that server.

Community's behavior defines each servers activity, it is not about population.

She's alive dammit - it's a miracle!
Just move on, they will not change it back to diamond as reward. Just accept that once again credit card players won.
Hehe, Nice.

Let the silliness begin!
So I was watching two brawlers fight, one was skipping all the punches and going straight to the 4th Brawler Punch combo and then I saw that same brawler do the same for the popup... I play a brawler too and I'm curious how and why is that brawler doing that?
Isn't this cheating? As for the other brawler, she wasn't doing anything like the first brawler was doing.
in theory making leveling dungeons harder should teach players to play their classes better. i reality people still facetank bosses, not enchanting their gear etc. worst thing is that now you can't get IM queue without tank, that's why people wait like 20-30 minutes to get in. putting blast from the past back in the game would be a great solution to solve long matching times and keep new players in game. cause tbh, if whole community claims that dungeons are fastest leveling, which it is, people kinda lose their interest in game in endless waiting.
Not much time left if you are interested guys ;) In the meantime I've drawn my own Valk!

Same issue here, bought a bank tab and now it shows as a temporary bank.
Yea, well its not easy finding a guild that takes casual new players =p
No we need 3 servers:
PVE
PVP
RP (apparently putting an E in front of this makes it censored...)
If you are going to remove diamond like that, then you may as well remove anything related that can be traded like supercede tokens cause that can be abused and tradeable for caprin horn to sell for profit!
At least until next patch nerf... Valkyrie.
BS+OS every 8 seconds. U can 1combo kill anyone

So wait.....one person complained about something and it gets changed!? I admit a diamond would of been nice since back in battleground they were the highlight of matches....But couldn't if of just been possible to not make the diamonds tradeable since it was that much of an exploit?

People would then sell them and trade over the acquired gold to their mains. Same problem.

I know that, it's why edited that last part out of my post.
Yes, peopple in this game is freaking elitist, since ever.
Dont pay atention to them. You must try to enter a guild, and tell them, you re new in game. Usually, they will teach you all u need to know and "train" you as well, help you to gear.
Tanks must be no easy as a 1st toon, as healer. Dps are the reccomended. (I play since 2012 and only have dps :P) . In the worst scenario with them, u will die a lot xD, but if re tank or healer, your death can mean a wipe for all.

Anyways if u like the class, go with it. Ignore elitist noobs who think they re better than anyone (usually they re teenagers with several sefl-estime issues). Try to join a guild!
I would recommend you stop comparing eme to other regions

not asking for the impossible :anguished:
whenever a thread like this pops up I'll say the same thing.

This game needs ONE mega server.

Population barely got any boost from the new class release.

It's time to man up and do what needs to be done for this game to feel somewhat alive.

New players logging into this game feel it's a ghost town.

please don't reply with your on at the wrong times/locations etc. I have toons on every server and I visit many towns/instances/bgs during all hours.
The real question is why do you have 17 characters

because some of us enjoy the game and like playing with different characters. some use them to make gold. some people like to use different ones to role play with. some people like to dress up different races with different classes. I like playing the game with different characters and I use maybe 2 to help farm stuff. I also have some with unique names.
my question is, why are people so concerned with why people have more than one character to play with. those character slots were bought by someone in the cash shop, so its not like eme didn't make any money from it. I have 17 on av, and 10 on ch. I take turns maining on different servers. I get bored playing with people on av, then I play on ch.
I don't play the broker, I don't sell names, I don't exploit the game. I like variety. I hope this clears up any questions on why people play with more than one character on a server.

I didn't say you had to use just one... but using 17+ is a lot! I used to use 12 lvl 65s at one point to gear in low-tier and farm gold and I got tired of it reaalll quick lol. It made the game feel like a 2nd job and I'd rather play something else at that point. If it makes you happy though go for it.

Hopefully these dungeons will be tweaked to make them slightly more manageable in the near future.

They will, hopefully soon enough. BHS finally realised that more HP doesn't make a fight more difficult, only longer, so at least the HP of the bosses will be lowered in a future patch.

Agree. So fkin boring kill that little pedobear miniboss of SM. Take like almost 8 minutes.
I've only downloaded the game about a week ago, but since I've first started playing I've noticed that the wings on every flying mount as well as the Pegasus flight paths are completely greyed out with virtually no color. I've tried relogging, doing a file repair, and even completely reinstalling the game but no fix has helped yet. I've noticed some people have had the same problem as me from past posts but none of their solutions has helped.

I also do not have any sort of mods that would interfere with any of the graphics. If it helps at all, I'm running on Windows 10 with an Intel Iris Pro graphics card (it's definitely not the best but it runs most games lol)
WHAT!? i am getting on my alt now. i need tabs on my main D:

The problem is that everything revolves around the actions of the unscrupulous rather than for the welfare and appreciation of the greater TERA community.

No, the problem is that people(including the GMs) think it's one or the other. An item doesn't have to be worth gold or even be trade-able in order to be useful or "something nice". We are, after all, talking about a once-a-year thing. It can be a rare cosmetic, mount(flying) or pet(I wouldn't mind another popori child slave). It can be a consumable(the 7 day savage draught comes to mind). It can even be a bundle of cool fireworks(no, not the letters, the dragons). It can even be a special anniversary item(they did the hot chocolate thing for Christmas, why can't they do a birthday cake that boosts combat speed by 10 and is everlasting?). All of those can easily be non-tradeable and would be useful to at least some people. Yet, somehow, they thought about it and decided that a 7-day version of an item that costs 500g on the broker is "something nice"(no, I can't get over that) after setting the 10k expectation.

PS: It's interesting how people talk about the potential inflation when Tera has a number of gold generators but gold sinks are being killed every patch.
Vix wrote: »
10k gold may not be much to some, but even though I have characters on all servers, I don't play the ones on MT or AV anymore because I don't have much gold there. (between 1k and 10k) No money = no play on those servers, resulting in lower player populations. A diamond would potentially have resolved that problem.
It seems you have a problem with managing your money rather than being just 'poor' here. The level 65 quests from Dougal, Sier and the one for the Ace Dungeons literally throw money at you in the thousands, not to mention the sizeable amount of enchanting mats and scrolls you receive as well.

@Dhrizzit Thing is... he is starting the game... healing is not a friendly beggining class. You have to know dungeons perfectly otherwise you're wipe material , when it's not the case when you dps. Suggesting mystic because you find it easy after XX months of playing doesnt help him.

Suggesting a healer class gg @Dhrizzit. Being a healer is not easy as being a tank. DPS is what beginners should try and do and learn if this game is for them or not.


so little confidence all have of him

I can assure some people on the first day of the tera, someone started as healer
So, asking this out on a limb here.

Let's say I (A long time, veteran Tera player) complains about the "new" current calendar log-in reward. Considering that someone complained about it being a Diamond, is it time to start complaining about the 7-day Kyra's-item-we-got-a-month-ago backpack cosmetic in hopes that it gets changed?

It's honestly the least that you can do. Don't listen to any of these babies. ; ;
