TERA PC - General Discussion: Future of Tera
In case you were still wondering about the future of Tera, BHS has made the decision for you. We keep on getting things taken away or reduced rewards wise and now they are touching something 6 years later that they shouldn't touch at all.

Downgrades are back, and this is worse than +15 awakening weapons because atleast it wasn't as expensive to upgrade back then, but now your spending upwards of 100-200k per try on something that has a 5-15% chance. Guess they need more money.
If we could have a word from EME about this, it would be great, some nice communication, or maybe a leak on a embargo about how this is the case?

Knowing EME they will bring this patch and not do anything about it since they have been pretty damn useless for the past 1-2 years. GG Tera, its over.

You realise that is a special item they release right? one that upgrade your gear without using materials. But the downside is that you can downgrade.

Enchanting with materials doesn't downgrade
Why even have a downgrade at all for that? That seems like a pretty crappy deal to me.

Ya but they reintroduced downgrading, which is horrible! Doesn't matter if it is a new item, it is not ok to be able to lose so much time and effort needed to enchant your gear due to RNG when it is already [filtered] RNG to enchant gear

Downgrading WHICH YOU CAN COMPLETELY IGNORE. The item is a risk, do you take the FREE enchant which could work but if it doesn't then you get cucked OR continue like normal

It literally means nothing unless you wanna gamble and take the risk

If you don't want to risk downgrading, don't use the item...how hard is it to grasp a simple concept, people are getting their panties in a twist for no reason...just don't use the item, if you do, you signed up for it
Well, seeing as it's an item that completely gets rid of the material requirement, seems like a fair tradeoff.
This is what happens when you only deliver half the facts. You're getting people bent out of shape for nothing.

Well heres the thing we only have 2 servers. That means no more server merges no more redemption at all anymore. If the population goes down right now eme and BH cant make anymore excuses why the game is at an all time low. This is their final chance if they fail tera will shut down now.

within a year from now, people will be asking for another server merge and another name wipe. it has happened everytime so far. if eme/bhs doesn't fix the problems that cause the players to leave in the first place, this will happen. if that happens, I imagine that eme/bhs reputation as a game developer and company wont be worth 2 cents. hopefully this got their attention and they will do whats needed to keep the players playing and spending money, and not on a new pay to win item ( or at least pay for convienatance) or costumes and mounts as many have complained about.

Whats to merge? What servers? We only have 2. One PVP and PVE we dont have any servers to merge anymore.

Realistically game is too old to just "fix". They would be better off re-releasing Tera as a new game just to attract a bigger crowd, but they are working on another game that isn't focused on combat, and the reality of it is it's safer to just do nothing and continue supporting the game as they are [from a business standpoint].
Sigh we have yet to get the content that only people with heroic oath can run....
Then there is this....BHS/EME is so out of touch with the player base its pathetic. After TERA I will never player a BHS/EME game ever again.
So tired of bad management from BHS/EME

If you knew that from the start, why did you post such a misleading/fearmongering thread?
If you hate the risk, don't use the item. Simple.
The future of Tera is fishing and flying guardian mission. Nect will be cooking mission, and next painting mission. Until the maximun mission will be relased picking heroic hervarious estrusion level +99
FYI, this is an event item. There's little chance this will even make it to NA. Did you know that the +15 scrolls they gave out in events and rally BAM drops a while ago also had a bit on them that they had a chance to downgrade your gear instead of upgrading it? But when it came to NA, they requested for the gamble to be removed.

I'd venture to guess that going from 8 to 2 servers is a pretty good indication of where Tera is headed. I'd be surprised if we see another full year.
TERA PC - General Discussion#18 Equitas09/21/2018, 08:17 AM
The likelihood of TERA shutting down within the next 365 days is almost nonexistent. Games far worse than this, and with lower population, have managed to stay afloat for far longer.
Well, and, shrinking down to 2 servers means little when most of the other regions in the world (including K-TERA) have been on 2 servers for a long time now. With the talent system being server-wide, there's a real disincentive now for this game to have any more servers than necessary.
I almost had a heart attack with flash backs from when i used to spend 700k up to 1mil just to fail from +12 to +15 on a weapon and end up with +12 in the end ( and it was some years ago so imagine the value of gold at the time ). This is also the reason why i quit BDO and came back to Tera a while ago...

But i am glad that this is not part of the entire system and instead it is only another option that someone can take so as long as this is optional then this is just fine.

How 'bout spending up to 1-2-3 millions and not getting a single enchantment? ;)
I would chalk this up to yet another item that would work better if the enchanting system itself had some tweaks to it.

Why do I say that, some of you may be wondering? Because there's already d**k-kicking RNG to deal with in the first place. This item would work better if there wasn't any randomness associated with crafting and upgrading/enchanting.

So the end result would instead be either a) you grind out the materials and money like normal and upgrade/enchant the old fashion way or b) use this item that completely eliminates the cost of upgrading and enchanting but with a 50% chance of downgrading should it fail. The people with little to nothing to lose (or have a hilariously disposable income) can try out the new item while the people who'd rather not press their luck get to move on as normal. Everyone's happy.

Also, I'm with @Equitas - please make sure you have all your facts together first, if only to avoid yet another mass panic. These forums are jumpy enough as it is.
Be informed before making a post, and do it with all the information instead of just making those uninformed to panic about something that isn't.
TERA PC - General Discussion#24 Lapomko09/22/2018, 01:24 PM
Speculating when the server will close down or stay up is completely waste of time just enjoy the game as how it is now. Because you can't predict what BHS will do.

Same can be said that I've seen games that went down which have more servers and population than Tera currently, suddenly closing down because publisher revokes the license or not being profitable enough so they can focus their developement on their next cashgrabbing title.
STOP panic; thread is full of lies

this is KR only event
the item does NOT lower the level. the item on failure removes the effect of the previous item.
If you use it on your equipment +6, then in case of failure, NOTHING will be removed. Equipment will remain +6

If you apply it to +6, in case of luck you will get +7. Now if you apply this item again, in case of failure you will lose the +1 bonus and your equipment will be +6.

But if you once again apply the item, and again there will be a failure - you again NOTHING will lose anything.

Only the effect of the event item flies off
