TERA PC - General Discussion: Closing in on character limit. Should I leave a slot open?

I have all 22 character slots bought and one is still open (slot bought and used but has no character on it yet). I'm perplexed as to whether I should use it or leave it open. I do page sets, so each page of toons have matching outfits and fit together. I already have the perfect character picked out, but not sure what to do if they have more leveling events, and I have no slots left. I know there are other players out there with maxed server slots taken, so what do you think? I suppose I could just give the 22nd character inexpensive cosmetics, but that isn't much fun either. The last page holds 8 but they've only opened 6 so far. Anyone know if they might end up opening the last 2 slots?

Just make the character and leave it at level 1.

Unless they re-release existing classes to different species/genders or come up with an entirely new one, I don't see them adding any more slots, unfortunately.

I would not try to make more characters at the moment if you have few on Velika server. If a merge happens in the future you will have to delete some to not exceed the limit.

I don't have any toons on Kiaitor now.

If I used it, the only thing that would be annoying would be if they came out with a leveling event with event weapon skins. That would be a bummer to miss out on event skins because all of the slots are full. They are doing a leveling event on console with weapon skins for ninja and warrior, so wondering if that is going to be a PC thing to or just a console. From what I remembered, ninja and warrior didn't have event skins when they were released.

Well, warrior was a base class, so I don't think there was ever anything exclusive there. Ninja did have a level event weapon skin at first, but at some point later on it was added to the Fashion Coupon store. In the last round of fashion coupon update, we did add a few more weapon skins that had previously been exclusive to leveling events. So for the most part level event costumes or weapon skins have been treated as "timed exclusives."

The only exception I know of is the Lady Tanly weapon skin from the Elin Brawler leveling event, and that one can't be added to the fashion coupon store unfortunately due to its properties. Maybe some day in the future they'll be a way to make it available again.

You're right -- that's another one that could possibly be added -- and at least the good news is that the item properties don't prevent it. Bad news is I don't know if/when they're planning to the next future round of updates (they've basically said there are no more planned updates...), but I'll track it on my list just in case.

There was some Warrior leveling event or something where you got a weapon skin box that you can open at level 65. I still have it on my Warrior that is sitting at 37. Could always wait and see if they do another event like that and grab the skin box that hopefully comes with it.

It would be great if they add it, gunners have so few skins as it is.

I did notice the skins for the latest console event aren't new, but they were also giving away stoles, and I'd hate to miss getting more of those on my main account. I'll probably just leave the last spot in limbo then and leave that last page of toons as under construction. It's tough, but I'll just have to resist the temptation to outfit them all up yet.
