Good tips! TY!
Tera should create a more expansive catalog of written resources to help new players with end game dungeons

While that would be helpful, the real problem is the massive skill level difference from leveling dungeons, 2 Star > 3 Star, I feel like Tera loses a very large number of newer players with this jump. Even though the jump from 3 > 4 or 5 may be as large and difficult, people are much more prepared for those jumps and the difficulties with the learning curve they are soon to experience.

Currently :

2 Star = You need to know nothing about your class, at all. Show up and get lewts.

3 Star = You need to know what a I frame is and Yes your class has one. You need to know your dps rotation and have semi ok rolls on your gear. You need to know mechs at least somewhat. GASP, you may need to communicate at some point in this dungeon as well. In other words you cannot be a complete shtlord. For the casual player, the jump is so massive from 2 to 3 star that they simply have no chance without being in a guild or very determined.

Currently: Create Character > Faceroll Dungeons for a day or two depending on class > Quests / Bams / 2 star instances for Guile. At no point has a casual needed to look at a guide or read a tool tip.

Then casual new Tera player queues up for 3 star instance. Finally after 33 mins the queue pops, shortly after entering he / she is booted. Because our newb casual has no clue of what is really going on in many cases he or she just thinks that the game bugged (because ONE thing is for [filtered] sure they have encountered bugs while leveling), so innocently he or she queues up again. This time they begin the dungeon and wipe on the first boss. Everyone is now yelling at them asking why they did not heal !! "But I threw red [filtered] and I dropped a totem, what more do you want I am not a priest." New player is booted for not knowing his or her class or the instance.

How many more times does new player x try this before they either:

Find a guild to teach them
Discover Essential Mana
Give up on 3 Star and above instances because they are for "pros".
Rage quit

Progression should be a lot smoother starting with the level 60 glyph dungeons and steadily increasing in difficulty to make the transition from 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 as smooth as possible.

Once you are consistently good at a 2 star dungeon you should be prepared to make the jump to 3 star, but a new player in many cases simply is not. In other words this game goes from being no challenge at all to even the weakest of players to a seemingly insurmountable challenge to average / new / lazy players.

* My suggestion is increased difficulty for Glyph dungeons and 2 star dungeons to create a more seamless progression for newer players.

DO NOT JUST BUFF HP POOLS.
Will the retired dragons (diamond and ghost in particular) ever make a comeback?

(Sorry if this has been answered before but my forum search skills are weak)

@Spacecats
this is quite lovely and helpful. good thread OP.
You have saved me a lot of trouble here. I was just about to search the interwebs for the name of Deathwrack items.

Also, I hadn't realized that the teleports had no animation. That's fantastic to know.

Thank you very much!
Wow, thank you for putting this together! There a few things I didn't even know about! :D

it is time for a server merge please
In a skilled party, RB is gonna be my main heal tbh, since it's mostly for show and *maybe* peace of mind for whoever's in it.

General healing? Still Focus Heal.
I would like to share some tips that may help players. Basically these tips are for not only elite users, but also non-elite users.

1. Go to highwatch quick & Free.

2a83019eb5.jpg

In anywhere (other than inside a dungeon/BG), you can open "Vanguard Request" window (default key : H) and click "Redeem" in order to go to highwatch for free and without teleporting animation.


2. Go to the dungeon entrance quick & Free.

Similar as #1. Open "Vanguard Request" window and click the dungeon that you want to move.
bffc396eff.jpg

Then, there is a Button of "Go to Dungeon Entrance". Just click it and you can go to the entrance without any teleporting animation.

3. Quick Ghillieglade reset + re-enter

After getting the loots, you do not need to type "/reset" inside the ghillieglade. Just use "Velik's Opportunity" to go to "Velik's Sanctuary" and then type "/reset" in there. You can skip one loading screen with this.

Getting loot > /reset > loading screen > velik's opportunity > loading screen > enter ghilieglade > loading screen > start : 3 loading screens
Getting loot > velik's opportunity > loading screen > /reset > enter ghillieglade > loading screen > start : 2 loading screens


4. Dungeon tier & Checking dungeon drop list : Accessory, VM mats, etc.

You can see the list of items that dungeons drop by opening IMS window.
And you can also see the number of "STARS" assigned to dungeons.
- Alpha reset scroll resets 2 star DG
- Beta reset scroll resets 3 star DG
- Gamma reset scroll resets 4 star DG
- Delta (maybe coming soon with VSHM) reset scroll resets 5 star (top tier) DG

5. Enter ACE dungeon quickly.

You do not need to go to highwatch in order to enter ACE dungeon. Just open IMS window, and then click "Ace dungeon" at top left. You can enter the Ace dungeon from anywhere.

6. Outfit switch button disappears.

It barely happens recently, but still heppens sometimes. The outfit switch button in your character profile window sometimes disappears (yellow box in screenshot). Do not be puzzled. You can still use hotkey (default : Left Shift + 1~5) or just click any tabs in your profile(costuming, DG/PvP or stats/Reputation) and then go back to the profile (red box in screenshot). The outfit switch button will reappear.

7. Unstuck

You can use "unstuck" in system menu every 30min. Basically it is like "Safe heaven teleport scroll" which brings you to a nearby town or city. And it is an instant teleport without any teleporting animation.

8. Bring your LFG post to the top.

When you are LFGing, sometimes there is a lot of LFG post so that yours is listed at the bottom and people think it is an old or finished run. Remember that your post is shown at the top always only for your party members, but the LFG posts are sorted by creating time.
So, in order to bring your post to the top again so that people can notice it first, you will need to delete your post and re-create it which is pretty bothersome. You do not have to re-type your LFG message. Just follow the sequance below;

Post LFG > click "Edit message" in LFG window > click "Delete message" > click "Confirm" button in your Register party window

The original message will not be deleted while you are opening (editting) your LFG post. Therefore, you can simply click a button to create a new LFG post with exactly same message as you posted.


9. Posting LFG in dungeon, BG

You may notice that you can not click "Create button" in LFG window while you are in a DG or BG. Do not worry. You can simply type "/LFG "message]" and this command will post your message in LFG window.


10. Kick yourself.


Somtimes, you may want to be kicked from the party (LFG group or BG). However, in case people do not initiate kick vote, you can type "/kick [your name]" and then ask people to accept it.


11. Change your POV to other player or an NPC.


Try to "Left shift + Mouse Left click" an NPC or other player. The POV will move to the clicked NPC/Player


12. Check the name of grafting (VM) items.


When you want to see the VM design for your class on the broker but you do not learn and/or know the name of it, you do not have to search all design or ask in global chat.
Open your craft window (default "J") and check "show all" at bottom left. you can see all the item list and can check the name of the item that you want.
97b5461dde.jpg


13. Cannot see the raid members.
Sometimes, when you join a raid, the raid window does not show up and you cannot see the raid members. Do not be confused. Just open raid window (default key "B") and click the eye icon in any party twice. The raid members will show up in your main screen.

What are you two on about?! A restaurant would never be stupid enough to advertise "the best dish ever" because that's setting yourself up for a lot of negative reviews.

Well, is not like a restaurant haven't done something similar.

We brag about "The best music live (for one gnere)", we brag about "the best food", we brag about "the best place to have fun" but that is marketing strategies. I am not really pleased with that way to word publicity but we reveive lots of provider's support on that aspect and they put their money on us and have faith in the bussiness. We have more than 10 years with this bussiness and being a local bussiness and being only one from several we have is quite interesting how marketing works for this kind.

What he was going for was... When you open the menu of your restaurant, you see a list of dished and what's in them. You don't see "awesome soup" or "best dish ever" or "coolest salad", just that and a price tag, do you? You show people what you have and then tell them "we have the best chicken in the world" not "we have the best mystery meat in the world".

Further down in the post you seem to get the idea of what he's saying. He was promised "the best dish ever" but what he got did not match the expectations so it seemed like cat food to him even though the chef believes it to be really good. Maybe his idea of "the best dish" is fish and chips and yours is a spoon of foam. The event, on its own, is not actually bad. It's the mindblowing stupidity surrounding it that left a bitter taste.

Some times you will write some description for the food in the menu, some times they exagerate the info about the dish, many bussiness do that and about the list of dishes, believe when I say I have seen even some that makes people laught and some that makes you think "pls shut up you are lying". All of that is a way to make the customer interested in certain dishes but I will give you a better example. I will talk about a restaurant that only sells pork and only one kind of dish, they even brag to be the best restaurant, to have the best food, the best drinks (eventhought they only sell beers and sodas), when you arrive there they don't even have a menu xD, even the lack of all that they do pretty well and they had some times customers that ask for something diferent than pork but they are told that there is no more options, those get angry and leave becuase they thought about more things when they saw that restaurant marketing.

That restaurant is about 700 mts from ours but they have enought customers to tell that they do really well, as an owner of a restuarant that bussiness got my atention and I can tell you that they have been growing as bussines since they started. And their "We have the best food" advertising don't make their bussiness falter.

Now, imagine you went in that restaurant and they gave you sushi and said it's their 'surprise of the day". No, you can't have the pork you went there for, here's your sushi. I don't think you are getting the difference between "we have the best food ever and it's pretty much pork" and "we have the best food ever but we won't tell you anything about it until it's on your plate". But, hey, if you think that's such a great idea, you have a restaurant, try it out. See how business goes when people don't know what food or drink they are getting until it's in front of them. How long, you think, before you serve a chicken sate to somebody with peanut allergy?

Here you really are not making sense at all.

First worst comparison again, if I know my bussiness is selling pork or seeling beef or selling salads, I will not replace it for other thing.

EME has not done something like that or could you make a fine example? Nope. Becuase EME gives you the same game with events that rewards you with costumes and mats that you can get in-game of from cash shop. They are not changing their product "TERA" for a bayblade for you to use instead to play the game.

They promised "the best event ever" without any information on what it' s going to be. So, you didn't know if you were getting pork, chicken or fish. Any of those can be "the best food ever". And the restaurant didn't stop serving food either, did it? Again, go ahead and offer a surprise dish in your restaurant. See how that goes for you if it's such an awesome idea. People iwll know they are getting food and that's all that matters, right?

The problem with analogy of a restaurant is "TERA" is not a "bussiness" but a "product" it selft, if you are going to compare it then TERA is more like the pork, beef or fish.

And something got caught my interest in what you are saying, I missed that "best event ever" promise. Maybe I didn't read it or listening from official sources. Anyway, being the best event ever is something more about who like it and who didn't like it. If you ask me I would rather hope for the anniversary could have been more like the las kyra event we had and the rest of the events (kyra's, mongos, etc) be more like this anniversary.

But that is just my opinion and there are other people that has told me that this event is fun, they enjoyed the dungeons, the battlegrounds, the bams and the boxes. I personally didn't enjoy the box hunt and the other activities are not something out of the norm.
@LilNorin farm tokens and save up for final shop changes, there will be way more items there, unfortunately in the final week they didn't mention this, don't spend tokens everyone, keep farming and wait for final shop change to kick in.
@Dokibun see my thread I mentioned the problem there, I reached 1K Tokens, and some I know passed 2k, lots of ppl also say they couldn't farm but they did.
Problem as I mentioned in my thread seems to be some areas has more spawn rate than the rest and it causes some players don't see them much, hopefully they take a look at it.
@AxeI it goes both way. Forums turned to one of those therapy sessions that everyone gather and cry together.

Also right now WTB food event.

Hi, how can I play Tera with at least static 60fps in minimun graphic? I met all the recommended requirements except of the graphic card what is GeForce GTS 450 / Radeon HD 4890 1GB, these graphics cards are enough to play tera in 60fps in minimun or at least 40 fps without the low perfomance mode?, or can u recommend me better graphic cards (not too expensive). I normally play with 14fps in dungeons and is annoying because I can react properly at boss attacks in result of my death.

Minimum graphic is not actually minimum. You need to optimize your graphics.
Then buy them, gold is there for a reason, it is fine, everyone is getting them, so many are selling and already cheap. You shouldn't farm every thing, gold sink needs to be there. Alkahests, feedstock already garbo, no need to make more items garbo.
So it's not possible at all?
ye we talk IRL food in tera forum B)
The template system was removed about 2-3 years ago. :'(
Can I sacrifice one of my old weapons in order to extract its skin and apply it to my new or current weapon?
How and where can I do this?
I run out of these much faster than I can farm them!
Man, the EME [filtered] kissers never cease to amaze me.

Shhh, let it keep going, I'm waiting for them to start comparing methods of cooking and seasoning differences.

I'm flattered you cared enough about me to go and look through MG to figure out whatever it is you think you figured out. Sorry, I still have no idea who you are nor do I much care to find out. But you are free to keep stalking me. I can't outrun a fleetfoot, after all.

Every dungeon is getting minor pingspikes. It got better for like a few days where it was minimal, but it's been back this week with a vengeance, random lagspikes. Most small, but sometimes you still get ones that make a boss freeze for a few seconds, which can easily wipe a party in VS.

Even small spikes can be deadly at the wrong time, though, so while it's technically playable atm, it's painful still.

Well I have no lag issues but after 2 hours playing I have been disconect 3 times.

And this is the fastest way to get kicked out of any party I'm in.

Well, is not like a restaurant haven't done something similar.

We brag about "The best music live (for one gnere)", we brag about "the best food", we brag about "the best place to have fun" but that is marketing strategies. I am not really pleased with that way to word publicity but we reveive lots of provider's support on that aspect and they put their money on us and have faith in the bussiness. We have more than 10 years with this bussiness and being a local bussiness and being only one from several we have is quite interesting how marketing works for this kind.

What he was going for was... When you open the menu of your restaurant, you see a list of dished and what's in them. You don't see "awesome soup" or "best dish ever" or "coolest salad", just that and a price tag, do you? You show people what you have and then tell them "we have the best chicken in the world" not "we have the best mystery meat in the world".
@Haloist just did BRNM on Lancer, after quite a long time without playing lancer. Entered an LFG (so not random queue) asking before entering if it was OK with an unexperienced tank, albeit I know the dungeon well enough. Sure enough, expectations were as I set, 1st and 3rd boss went better than I expected myself (and party), and second was horrible in my opinion but party nevertheless went OK with it. Great run, all nice.

In other hand ran TSNM from LFG this morning, no one said they were new or anything, some potato rushed into the 3rd ball when we were attacking 1st one, mobs spawned, people scattered, still taking damage over hits on 1st ball, I was heal, managed to hold this complete BS of a 1st boss (ye, [filtered] are 1st boss in Timescape, honestly) for like 5 minutes until couldn't avoid mobs while healing and it all went south with a wipe - on [filtered].
Easily avoided if that creature were to say "Hey I'm new". I would have just told the mechanics in a snap like I always friggin do when people say they're new in Timescape or any dungeon I know, and no kicks no [filtered] no nothing. BUT he just had to hide it, and then complain that it ended like that. Really.

The only thing I could tell is that a restaurant and food is one of the worst comparisons I have ever seen in this game.

This is not a food bussiness but an entertaiment bussiness, you will try to keep the most audience posible and grab the most money you can from them but you can't think to please everyone because there are several diference about enjoyment from people. You wil try to please the most people you can even if that makes many rant becuase they are too greedy and thinks your way of doing things are not good.

The truth is that will never ends, it doesn't matter how much you try and it doesn't even matter if EME would come out with a better event than EU, there would be people hating everything EME does and that happened since the first year of this game, even before it went to F2P.

What the new crew at EME needs to improve is their comunication and their schedules. Events are not that bad but if they tell us the very same day the event start how this event is going to be managed then that lead to disapointment, as many of you have said before, to create expectations is the worst thing a publisher could do becuase people will always get high expectations from that.

Just look at the "TERA is going to consoles this 2017", look how much expectation makes and then time passes and we don't have any official about this project. Time continue passing and many hopes console version could be better than PC in regards of server stability, fps rates and many other things. They are creating many expectations from players that most likely will be crushed when the console version arrives.

Same thing with the events, too much expectation to get disheartened at the very start from those.

Exactly.
I've had luck on and off.
I found 7 or so this afternoon, maybe in 30min to an hour of running around solo.
I wasn't really tracking it at all.
Spawn rate is pretty poor compared to mongos, maybe a little less compared to previous "blue box" events but a little on par with it.

yesterday i was finding 20token boxes regularly with the rare 10 box. Today I've found strictly 10 boxes with 1 20. Still nothing better than that.

If the rewards in the token shop were better, I'd say it was a good spawn rate, but there isn't much in the token shop worth farming for, so there's little incentive to hardcore farm, thus I feel like a higher spawn rate would be nice if the point is to get more people participating.

OK so that's QUITE some difference, had no idea it was that bad on AV, and now I really don't get why people complain about "ded gaem" on other servers, if I've had no actual issues in AV even. Like I said I have never leveled to 65 on the other servers so here I am in AV, knowing that little tip of the story.

Regarding the merge tho: I frankly would have preferred to have literally just 2 servers: one PVE one PVP with a way bigger character limit. That of course considering optimal server quality so the hardware won't be defecating itself when people try playing there.
Heck even just one huge gigantic server, with big character limit per account, and PVP channels separated, with actual open world from Lv 10 onwards. Then the issue would be how the TERA server code would work (or I mean... it should start working properly).

Various servers is an annoyance I've had ever since I started playing back in 2014, my friends started all in AV, hence I did too, got all my progress in AV, and then some new friends started in other servers, those same friends came back in other servers.... and the mess is done. The whole separate server thing is a gigantic fragmentation mess.

I would love if they merged all the servers and only kept 2 servers, one for PvP and one for PvE but I know that would never happen and a lot of people would be really mad about it. Since some players prefer to play on lower population servers so they have a better chance at possible events (BAMs events, or blue boxes etc) and would rather have a smaller server so they would know everyone a little more, or to have less trolls on the server. Also lower population servers would make it easier to fight BAMs like IOD and stuff like that so I understand people liking lower pop servers.

Though I would love to be on more populated servers so I personally would love the idea of only 2 servers. Just to have much more people to talk with, LFG, and much more active and populated guilds to pick from instead of just maybe a small number of guilds etc.

But honestly, I feel a lot of people would be mad if they did that because then they can't have their character names and would be constantly fighting over it...Which is something I'm so happy I don't have to deal with because I don't try to go for the super popular names that people will always try to hoard in every game lol.

Actually, it woud be better to have only 2 servers each one located on diferent geo location (East Coast, West Coast). Both being PvP with some PvE channels. What hurts most the actual players from this game (a side from server hardware or software issues) is that NA population is a mix from NA, Latin American, EU and even people from Asia. Having only one geo location to get all those people playing together will always lead to have many of them with ping issues.

If physical servers were on West coast (ie. California) then you would make players from NA, Mexico, and over seas like Austrlia to get better ping. If you have another physical server located on East Coast (ie. Florida) You will make players from NA, Canada, Many Latin American Countries, EU and other Regions to have better ping.


About AV being a death server, I don't think so, if I have to compare FF have same issue, to few LFG or on some hour there are not even 1 to be found, either way FF has most of the players doing IM or GvG or PvP related things, but LFG is something that is rarely seen on FF.
When the majority of people in a thread and in global say we need more boxes and respawn rates, don't you think you should listen? Sure LesbianVi is one of the select few that boxes are blessing, but that doesn't mean to not cater to the rest of tera.

I'm probably one of the few that can see both sides to this.

On one hand, there's an opportunity to run dungeons and battlegrounds at an increased rate thanks to the extra loot, and thus get ultra-rare items like those Nut Hatch weapons people keep clamoring about.

On the other, due to the implementation, the event alienates massive swathes of players. Even if leveling is the easiest it's ever been (XP increases like with the warrior revamp notwithstanding), that still leaves a good chunk of people not being able to partake in the (cough) festivities simply because they haven't been playing long enough. There's also the fact that there's a gigantic world that's still being left to rot as, up until now, there was no real reason to explore it outside of personal fascination (or cheevos).

Long and short, the concept was cool, but the application was all wrong.

Yeah, your truly acurated on your thoughts.

The event is good, the options are good but is not for everyone to enjoy.

So far I see we had PvE included, PvP included, Solo Open World exploration included, Raids to kill BAMs included. The thing we miss is the quiz show but it bugged.

Overal, the event has several option for players to earn tokens, from that comes the complain from many players, they got used to get the prizes directly from an RNG show and this first time (well, second time if we count Veliks Hunt event) you can work your time to get the prize you like the most. Other problem is that there were few options on prizes, several of them were good but not everyone likes elins (I love them but this is not only about me). Some people was looking for rare, uncommon, seasonal or legacy costumes to be included but there were only a few.

Other thing is good in this event are the discounts on cash shop, many people rant about this but that has nothing to do with the in-game options, you can make a blind eye to the cash shop and get stuff from the events. People making a ruckus saying that this event is only a cash grab are only venting hate without an actual argument to stand in the first place.

This event was good but few tweaks are needed, I liked how most of the event was designed for people to think about what prizes were worth to spend their time but the thing I disliked the most is the RGN rate of tokens drops on Blue Boxes. I think those should be the same for everyone and not being in a case where you find 100 boxes but got less than someone who found 20. One of the flaws I see here.

You may have had a different experience, but this isn't what you should do really. Everyone thinks differently, sure, but you should always be prepared for the worst case scenario, which is that everyone else in the party expects you to be able to pull your own weight.
With this in mind, which of these two scenarios would your party members focus more on your mistakes: when you tell them you're bad, or when you don't tell them? It should be a no-brainer that they're more likely to focus on your mistakes if you DON'T tell them that you're bad, since they're EXPECTING you to be able to carry your own weight. However, if you tell them you're bad, they could just go like "It's just another newbie, moving on". Not to mention you will just sound like a sarcastic troll if you only tell them you're still learning when they start questioning you.

If you still can't understand, then let me use a real-life example. Imagine you're a newbie consultant at a professional firm, and you just got assigned to a client. Expectations are high since your firm is well known, so you know you have a standard to uphold, but you also know that you're a newbie and will be prone to mistakes.
What do you do then? Keep quiet first, and then when things go south, tell your client you're new and expect them to not be pissed and not nitpick at every minor detail? Or be honest with your client, so that they know what to EXPECT from you, and when you make mistakes, they'll be more likely to empathise and understand. This is just basic psychology.

Moral of the story: Everyone has expectations when queuing for dungeons through IMS, regardless of what YOU think they should expect. Make it clear that you're new at the beginning so that their expectations are lowered, and thus less likely to nitpick on your mistakes.

Yes, becuase this event is more one of "first come first served", is not even about exploring areas from open world but only to follow the main road.

If you stick to the main road you will get more chances to find boxes but if you are venturing far from the main roads then you will waste time. That's something for this event bore me a lot, this is not even about enjoying the landscape but only to follow a line in the mini map and keep your eyes on the radar.

Sorry but I passed on this even since the first day and I make 200 tokens but I don't even understand how people enjoy this kind of thing. Oh I remember why, this need less effort and people loves RGN from boxes. Becuase if exiting to open 20 boxes and get 200 tokens mean while others open 5 and get 300 tokens less than a quarter of time you spent to get those 20 boxes.
Every dungeon is getting minor pingspikes. It got better for like a few days where it was minimal, but it's been back this week with a vengeance, random lagspikes. Most small, but sometimes you still get ones that make a boss freeze for a few seconds, which can easily wipe a party in VS.

Even small spikes can be deadly at the wrong time, though, so while it's technically playable atm, it's painful still.
It isn't just AS, it happens with DS too.

And last night I actually had it still showing up on my buff bar for once, but it was still bugged and not active despite being highlighted too.

Bug's been around a long time though.

Honestly the dungeon highlight is annoying as [filtered]. Good luck trying to get a group to run something OTHER then VHNM.

Ive been doing VS/TS and VHNM all day. What people aren't running is VHHM cuz makes no sense to waste time on it.

Etchings are a MUST both on glove and weapon. If you are on a limited budget, try getting temporal ones, or you can always gamble and buy Superior Etching Boxes.

Quatrefoil does boost dmg because it has an extra line of stats compared to emp/quick brooch, and the buff is better + u have a cleanse. But it's the last thing you should care about.
Right now im having a constant +45ms than usual. I hope this get fixed soon, because my normal ping is 180, but 225 is just unplayeable.
Well this is a bug that affects an entire race all the time, not a small thing.

I would like to know if EME is at least aware of this @Spacecats
go on lvl 60 char to avoid being pkd by people with full deathwrack. stress free blue box hunting. :awesome:

If you could check the damage taken to see which number pops up that would be great. Account for Kaias (about 39k) and see if it's actually flat damage or whether it's affected by gear.

What do you mean by this tho? If you meant whether the damage number was a nice number like 150000 then it wasn't, so it's probably not flat damage.
However, I was in full damage reduction rolls and full hardy, and so were the other members, so it's not a matter of rolls/crystals.

It's either a glitch or the healers messed up. If everything is done right, you are not supposed to get 1shot. Because that'd be stupid.

@Angeline

Nothing of the sort.

Do you even owns a restaurant because my family does and I have been supervising it since seversl years.

1. Your point lacks of everything as I compare you with an unreasonable customer that has been served a gourmet dish but you haven't developed your taste to enjoy it and you call it cat food, make a rant and insult many customers that are enjoying it.

You insult my personal and try to make way to the kitchen trying to change the dish with for one to please your tasted calling everyone incompetente.

You ignore to use the complains and suggestions form and your ruckus is causing the others clients to feel unconfortable.

I rather kick you out from the restaurant and never come back that having a customer that have those kind of behaviour.

Sorry to tell yoi this but applies on every bussiness, the sentence "the customer is always right" is nothing but a lie used for customers to try abusing the bussiness from others and the most logical way for a customere to act is to leave and return other time or don't come back at all.

I had to deal with these kind of "disatisfied customers" and making them leave is better than trying to please them.

Maybe is not much but having a restaurant where we have more than 5 thousands people assisting every week and having fun won't let me change my ways only for a few dozen that claims to be the opinion from everyone when they are clearly not.
Anyone who thinks EME can do anything is just plain dumb. The most they can do is ban you if you actually say something ingame. Only thing keeping this game afloat are those tools & the combat, after that, this game has nothing to offer.

@vkobe I get what you meant, that is why I said we could have open world events on weekends with dungeon highlights, not just dungeon highlights.
All I could think while reading that was Amy's baking company lol. But I do completely agree with you though.
Error: 0111:0001 means port failure. TERA requires port 10001 to access its server. However, some 3rd part..something modifies the port to inject a pro...something which is against ToS.
Anyway, if you are using a 3rd part..something, it might fail to restore the modified port(s) back to the original port when you treminate TERA and/or the 3rd part..something, and that cuases this error oftenly nowadays.

Also, please stop "summarizing everyone's complaints." As I said, it appears that you're missing the mark.
For whatever little it's worth: You keep talking about "the professional world," but telling them that "literally anyone" could have come up with better events (and basically that you think they're lazy and incompetent) is not professional. That may be the way you feel, but that's not constructive. If the problem is that they're not "devoting time and energy to this game," that's a management prioritization decision in the first place and not really up to them. We already know that the TERA community team went down from 3 full-time people to a much-of-the-time 1. The only thing we can do to work with these people is to provide actual feedback about exactly what's wrong and suggestions on how to improve it. So, I would respectfully submit that I'm not missing the mark; I'm aiming for a target that can actually be hit. If you really think that's what needed to fix the problem is more blame and shame (as if there isn't already plenty of that going on), do as you wish.

Ok, let's try a metaphor. Let's imagine that EME is a restaurant. Join me, will you?

One day, EME (the restaurant) puts out a sign advertising that they're serving the most amazing dish. In fact, it's a special dish! The restaurant has been open for exactly five years, and this is going to be the most delicious dish they've ever served.

A customer walks by, sees the sign, and decides to pop in. She's seated and asks for what was advertised.

After waiting for a week (wait wasn't the anniversary 7 days ago don't worry about that part the food's still good), the waiter waltzes out of the kitchen and serves the customer a can of low-budget cat food. Like, not even Fancy Feast. Store brand cat food.

The customer, visibly confused, inquires about the advertised dish. "Oh, it's coming later this month," says the waiter. The customer is patient, she can wait a few more weeks, as long as the promised dish will arrive at some point.

So, the customer returns to EME's restaurant and again orders the advertised dish. This time? Cat food with like some dried bits of herbs sprinkled over top.

"I wanted the anniversary dish," complains the customer. "Can I speak to a manager?"

The manager shuffles over, and the customer, still trying be understanding, asks about the special dish.

"Oh, we couldn't make it," says the manager. "Our special-dish-making-machine didn't arrive from Korea."

"This is a restaurant, though, isn't it?" asks the customer. "Don't you have other ways of making that dish? Surely there are a lot of tools and equipment back there in the kitchen."

"Yeah," replies the manager. "But we really wanted to use the special machine."

Annoyed, the customer huffs, "Well... could you at least make me something else good to eat? I don't want this cat food. Here are some ideas of things I like to eat."

Manager: "I can see you're upset about not having the special dish. What if the cat food cost less? Or what if there was a whole table of cat food? What if the cat food was hidden all over the restaurant and you had to go and find it?"

Customer: "I don't want any of that. I'm hungry; I want actual food."

Manager: "Woah, woah, let's not get hostile. The chef is trying his best."

Customer: "He is a chef though, right? It's his job to make food? And it's your job to manage this restaurant? Surely with your combined skills and equipment, you could serve me something acceptable to eat?"

Customer at the next table: "Hey, don't blame the restaurant for not serving the dish they advertised! Why are you being so unprofessional?"

END SCENE.

So there you go. LITERALLY ANYONE could have served a better dish than this restaurant, and you certainly don't tell the customer she is being "unprofessional" in this scenario. The onus is not on the customer to "help" EME, it's on them to provide products and services that make customers want to come to their restaurant.

It's also absurd to say that the "only thing we can do" is to just keep eating at Restaurant EME, and maybe if we state our feedback nicely enough, they'll hear what we're trying to say.

Take this metaphor a little further with me. Let's imagine that Restaurant EME has fallen on some hard times. The Yelp reviews are horrific. The manager yelled at some people. It's on YouTube - really embarrassing stuff. Wouldn't you think that this restaurant would want to do anything it could to restore its reputation? To get people to come back to the restaurant and enjoy themselves again? As a customer, I'm not only angry that I was served cat food, I'm shocked at the restaurant's choices, given their recent history.

What's your mark, counterpoint? Would you like your cat food slightly warmed up? I want what was advertised, and I honestly don't care what's going on in the kitchen or in the chef's personal life. I am certainly tired of excuses as to why the cat food isn't Restaurant EME's fault. You should be, too.

yes is boring, but it is better than what we had between first may to 25 may, because between those 2 dates we got something of more stupid, unfortunally our cm doesnt have enough imagination to made fun for this anniv, so a blue boxe for the whole may would be better than the crap we got before 25 may
One quick tips: I changed char and check other areas to get what people said, already made the point but REMEMBER

FARM WITH YOUR ELIN,


I mean seriously, Yesterday, with my Elin I made twice, and then with my Elin again got more boxes than other chars :expressionless:
Who cares? The reality is EME can't do anything and they know it. From the moment they put up that announcement, they dug their own grave.

I agree with you here, not everyone so thrilled to get there +15 stuff, diversity could help more, but trust me, that some ppl want a +15 weapon to be handed over to them and some complains are there, I toss out most VM mats I get, and I know many players don't want or need. So, this one point is good. Hopefully EME don't do this one thing and dropping Vm mats for everyone later.
kyra's was enjoyable, even if i was spamming my brains out with SSNM i didn't mind, i liked getting catalysts, i liked the fun of random pulls, picking the potion, getting something completely random (i.e. most of my pulls were of the cosmetic sort simply because i found that more exciting). compared this to say, grinding out DFHM, ABNM, VHNM for 3-8 tokens for a store with steep prices and a changing yet still shallow pool of choices to purchase from.

yeah, there's a difference. a fat one. and i'm gonna complain all i'd like, no matter how much you complain about others' complaining (funny how that works, right?)

oooh, you're getting tired of it! what're you gonna do? shaking in my boots over here.
My brother had a GT 520 on his PC too, rest about same. That case, the GPU is in fact the bottleneck. BUT you won't get super smooth 60 almost ever in TERA even with higher end ones.
I think if your budget is pretty strict, the GTS 450 would be good for it, still would need some tweaks for higher FPS. The GTX 550 Ti, if available, should be also quite cheap nowadays (depending on country that is), and a bit more power efficient so go for the 550 if you find it cheap (and I mean CHEAP). If you got enough money for a new card tho, go for something around a GTX 1050 instead. That should be overkil for TERA and good for other games.
you complain about grind and then talk about Kyra? If you could just read, and go back to my threads, I talked about OW event and I said it needed to be more fun. But no, you just wanna complain, non-stop.

@vkobe from may 4th to 30th to hunt boxes? Would have been boring and stupid. we needed open world event on one of the weekend, just like bam event we got on CH.

And I am done with EU having better stuff, go there and see how you can reroll your jewels or get spellbind or enchant your stuff. This crying needs to stop, you complained and we all heard you, stop this whining. getting really tired of it.

Unfortunately Tera uses CPU a lot more than GPU. And it can't even utilizes more than 2 cores of your CPU's. Best solution is get better performance CPU such as Intel's Core i5 or i7. Higher clock speed favorably.

Well, I have a Intel's Core i5-3330 / 3.00GHz (4 CPUs), 8GB Ram, DirectX 11.3, Windows 10 64 bits, all the recommended requirements. And I can't play tera with more than 24 fps, but my pretty old GPU is a Geforce GT 520, do you think buying a GTS 450 which is in the recommended requirements or the GTX 550 Ti how said ElinLove I can play with 40fps with everything in minimun graphs? I don't matter the graphs, I only want to have a smooth gameplay.

For that, we can discuss here no longer. Head red *ahem dit or google "Tera Optimization".
Be advice, it is illegal to do so since it is against ToS. Proceed at your own risk.
I dont see any issue in running FF in RMHM like the guy above was mentioning. I ran RMHM in slaughter on my healers, even if i ran x4 hardies or no crystals at all i would get oneshot, still ran the dungeon just fine. He didnt mention HH so pointing out the ''healing a tank under Vergo's paw can save a raid'' point is kind of moot.

Staying on topic tho, you must have messed up badly in your VHHM run if you get oneshot during the mechanic. Maybe you tanked too many hits inside the circle, maybe you messed up a regress/plague. Either way you shouldnt have died if you did it properly
If you were not in CH, i would comission you right away :( Nice art!
Anyway it doesnt matter anymore. Anniversary is almost done. Im tired already.

I am sorry you have no valid point here. Still I made more point against this event. You players just want years of mats and millions goldz like mongo.

Suddenly I've been branded as "that-lazy-player-wants-easy-vm-mats-and-gazillion-of-gold".

All I want is fun. Fun and enjoyable whole month "Anniversary" events, not cash shop nor grind-fest. And this week they give us time-grind-fest?
EU has scheduled and properly executed events than NA meanwhile we, here in NA got "Soon™" events announcement.

Guess what, Tera EU also got cash shop all over them, but their events execution are much better than EME's.
Have you seen their schedule? Here, take a look:

And us, weekly battleground and dungeon grind. Also, time-grind-boxes this week.

Also, please stop "summarizing everyone's complaints." As I said, it appears that you're missing the mark.
For whatever little it's worth: You keep talking about "the professional world," but telling them that "literally anyone" could have come up with better events (and basically that you think they're lazy and incompetent) is not professional. That may be the way you feel, but that's not constructive. If the problem is that they're not "devoting time and energy to this game," that's a management prioritization decision in the first place and not really up to them. We already know that the TERA community team went down from 3 full-time people to a much-of-the-time 1. The only thing we can do to work with these people is to provide actual feedback about exactly what's wrong and suggestions on how to improve it. So, I would respectfully submit that I'm not missing the mark; I'm aiming for a target that can actually be hit. If you really think that's what needed to fix the problem is more blame and shame (as if there isn't already plenty of that going on), do as you wish.

skimmed but 411 u white knight WAAAAAAY too much to the point its comical hence if you see there responses as antagonistic its due to your historical hypocritical bias and empty rebuttals. As well as using straw-mans to isolate one point in former's argument while ignoring the rest to make you appear in the right when to be frank that's just crap discourse and dare say not any would take those simplistic retorts seriously.

Just saying.

Also quit interpreting what other people say like "you feel" xyz BS and then focus on how you think xyz feels. Even if its true that isn't what the person said but feel free to put your words in there mouths to make your argument. The fact you've never been called out on this shows how [filtered] the forum's have fallen.
in current state the blue boxe is fine, the problem it is than our CM implement this blue box at last minute and only because we put pressure on him after he fail to keep his promise with a quiz event

if he just made it simple and implemented this blue box the 4 may the event would be fine and less people would complaint, personally i would happy to have the blue boxe the 4 may until 30 may

it usually happens when;

- you have logged in too many accounts a day (maybe 5 or 6+)
- one or more of the accounts you have logged in have been banned for some reason. In this case, usually all the accounts being logged in from same IP/computer will be suspended for a certain period (probably a day if you are not the person who caused "ban")
Go to areas where monsters/mobs appear as red dots only on your compass. The blue boxes appear as non aggroable yellow dots. That way it'll be easier to spot them and not confuse it with a monster.
vm9 for free? where? where's my full vm already +15 set, preferably already set with dyads and etchings!!! pls mail it directly to my parcel ok ty

tl;dr we expected a event to beat previous ones considering this was the 5th anniversary, turns out kyra's was more enjoyable than this one.

therein lies the problem.
where is the resident tank that white knights AV to death.

Cmon u need to post some bias hypocritical drivel
iunno EME sometimes u can't please ppl should revert to old forum to shut these cry babies down.

People aint even putting these toddlers in there place with all this whining, considering you are giving them VM9 for free and still get [filtered] on.
I said multiple times it needed to be more fun, I don't say it was perfect but not as bad some players such as yourself claim

i need a in game live location to grasp location anything else be useless getting more and more stumped


I suggest you remove/edit your link because people are able to access your entire albums and check everything you posted ( alongside your IRL name etc )
Reason I dont post more detail on why this event is bad is that people already explained it properly for like 3 pages of this thread. The point is that you should stop sugar coating it and just accept the facts already its so redundant to explain what has already explained.

So your saying that because some of the events are not s bad as this and as cash grab as this it made tera's economy crumble. That is soo selfish of you. Just because you cant gain gold from selling from the broker means that everyone should suffer from it. Some people just want to farm mats right away not do a cash grab gimmick.

Plus this is an anniversary event it shouldn't be a cash grab event or a grind fest. It should be fun and fulfilling. It should feel more of an anniversary.

which is the best way to boost dps with limited budget if you can only pick one?

1) quatrefoil brooch (currently superior quick carve)
2)a 2nd dragon to stack passive crit
3)vm glove + etching
4)get full dyad and etching on weapon

or it would be great if any1 can tell me a rough percentage boost on each of this choice with your own perfect scenario

#3

brooch overrated, so is dragon, and full dyad not much better than reg Niveots.
If ur a dps u don't need any of that crap to do decent damage
