You can achieve 800 ARTISAN in a second profession but you can only master one.

only in a second profession? or could you get 1 master and get all the rest to artisan?

After you get a second artisan the take test option disappears for the rest of the professions.
Thank you!

Oddly enough, being less greedy actually creates a better game. League of Legends as a successful f2p game had extremely low money spent per player to the point larger devs+publishers like EA were laughing at Riot, even though none of them has been able to release a successful "Game as a service" yet.

Most publishers and developers are just forced into quarterly sales rather than long term gains, which causes features to be cut, early releases, and the over reliance on either pay to win, or excessive RNG.

Well, part of it is economies of scale too. You can afford a low spend/player when you have millions upon millions of players all the time. Even in the absolute best possible world, TERA can't reach those heights -- cost/player for an MMO is higher, and TERA itself is just way more niche. It's not entirely "if you build it, they will come" either, unfortunately -- even if they had made all the right decisions, TERA was never going to have that kind of reach.

That being said, I do think one of TERA's strengths traditionally has been one of the more fair F2P models in the MMO scene, and I just want to make sure that this gets preserved when the tendency could be to just overload Elite to the point where it feels "mandatory" for people.

Well i guess can give them some credit atleast the prizes this time are not bad some new items that are permanent, it's a step in the right direction I guess.
New meals don't work in a party: fish salad, moongourd pie...etc. It does not indicate in description to be exclusive to person

This is why I've said for a long time they need to have events that have a threshold for a "big prize" and then incremental prizes after that.

For example, imagine if each character/account (depending on the prize) were sent a single conversion cube, and all the santas dropped tokens in addition to random other stuff. After you collect <x> tokens (whatever amount is deemed fair), you can convert it into an untradeable "grand prize" for the event. You can only get that grand prize once, and then after that you can continue farming if you want but you'll get the incremental prizes.

That way, everyone who participates at a certain base level is guaranteed to get a nice prize for the event, but people with lots of time can farm for incrementally-better rewards (but not, like, break the bank amazing). You can also then afford to increase the spawn rates without worrying that your hardcore players are going to break the economy or balance.

The subscription system has to appeal to the public audience. Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Elder Scrolls Online have nailed that practice. While it's possible to play the game without the optional subscription, players will still be attracted towards that method due to all the offerings and potential.

I don't know if they changed it within the last year, but honestly I didn't feel the way they did it with SWTOR was fair. F2P was way too gimped -- as you say "it was possible" to play as F2P, but it was way too obvious that you're playing a severely restricted game. I mean, sure, that causes people to want to subscribe (and so it's probably tempting for game companies to do that), but it stretches the definition of F2P. I don't want them to change things in TERA so that it feels like the only way you can play the game "as intended" is to subscribe to Elite, even if it would increase subscription sales. (Of course, this may be why I don't work for a F2P gaming company; not greedy enough...)
iirc it's always been that way.
It seems that we are able to dismantle the non tradeable IV etchings from the etching boxes but we are not able to dismantle etchings from the Island of Dawn Merchant.

So? What is going on?

Late reply, but there were multiple reports of this last night on Discord as well. The San Jose Zayo node was misbehaving. It seems like it resolved itself in time, but it was definitely annoying for those impacted. Guess we'll have to see if it happens again tonight.
Here's your answer.

Yeah for sure, but who cares no one has a voice here it's all about KR tera

They must not be that rare, although I haven't gotten any. Only going for 1500 on broker though.
I did find a lot outside of Bleackrock.
> @vkobe said:

I feel this is :o bait :3
@StevenAnthony @Zoknahal yeah, I know about for the gathering node.

@Zoknahal thought it would be any kind of fish, it failed to occur to me that it had to be a BAF (which I have yet to see). But 3rd tier IoD tokens... that I did not check, thanks!
Westonia have a lot of them.
You can get em from any type of gathering node.

Or by catching a big fish

Or by doing LoD vanguards. The thing cost 300 3rd Tier tokens
well you can craft 80% ones ( well yu need enchant fish rod)

but is expensive to craft
westonia have oftern of azure essence
To be honest, I had more success upgrading gear who's item exp WASN'T at 100%, so I don't think it actually matters.
Does this bait give some advantage vs the free in game bait?
Cuz they slowly turning the game into a pay to win model since they made that 100% exp boost exclusive to cash shop..
Imho, EME should stop being shy and, on the next patch, just put HO+7 gear on cash shop for like U$1K and make it untradeable while +6 is the max ingame ;)
you get from any kind from gatering nodes
You must obtain 9 other named achievements in order to get this achievement. Each of those is an item acquisition.
Probably rng items from fishing in each area

Well that was uncalled for. I didn't brag; I just posted my experience with the event and my goals for the event.
I see I will check it out.
So long I do not play so ...
I pinged a guild quest for gathering, Crimson and Earth essence is easy to find but for the life of me I can't find Azure Essence. Anyone know where it is? Would really appreciate an answer lol <3
I second this, especially for guild quests where we gather and where can I find Azure essence??
That's a very pretty piece!
Does anyone know how to get this 50 point achievement, or even where to go? As far as I know highwatch doesn't even have a pond.

popo is best food for elins
this is for avoid super hyper flood droops drom gorudos hallowen event

since up spamw rated many santas will be exploit since they stakend in somes places

No one even asked for them to do hyper flood drops. I am not sure what you mean by the rest.

I will try for a few more hours, but it's almost better for me to give up and go with the gift box steps. I am sure those will be tradable. It's easier to earn a couple hundred gold than it seems to be in finding a fat santa.
so popo are food since bhs confirm it :3

Add to this that bugged texture streaming (which permanently downgrades your textures for the whole session after being in a busy place once) is still a thing. The only workaround is to open settings and exiting it by clicking OK to see your textures return to normal.

Elites main issues are useless bloat and no reason to stay subbed. Trash buffs and a tiny amount of emp isn't going to cut it.
Bring back account wide costumes and accessories. Tie it to elite. The more months you're subbed, the more goodies you get.

They used to do a monthly Elite gift, which usually was a costume or a bundle of accessories, worth around 10 dollars. That stopped the moment a lot of players complained they couldn't make money out of the free cosmetics because they were everywhere. It died once the free gift became the infamous Elite Jewel Bag.

I pointed this out back in April with the Easter egg thief event even posting a video showing how it used to be. I expected the same shenanigans with the santas. They make the spawns so low that it becomes pointless to do the event at all. This is the eme staff over the last year they are very much against giving out too much loot on events either dumbing down event to make they 0 fun and waste of time to replacing them entirely with pay events.

I remember back when spacecats had just left, watching a twitch with the new employees and them complaining about giving out codes and people putting them on forums for others to use claiming that they were gonna stop that practise and sure enough they did. These people don't realise that the generous events of the past was what make people happy and actualy want to play the events.

It never works anyways, because you will always have people like Starsprite that have hours upon hours to farm and will brag about all of the loot they get. It's like we better no life this game or else. I will try to no life this then seeing as the footsteps aren't tradable. I just want one set of them for my main anyways.

The santas only seem to spawn in certain areas. I also think people get confused between the tiny santas and the fat santas. I did spend some time yesterday fishing and completing Legion quests, so it really is my fault. I should have been searching for santas all day yesterday like a good girl. My bad.

I totally agree with you though. Back when EME was generous, my pocketbook was open. Now, it's closed tighter than an angry clam. People can't even get parties together for Wintera. It's not like having the prizes super rare gets me to put more time into the game, more like it just controls what I do while I play. The funny thing is, that with every prize we get for free, we are working and paying for cosmetics to go with them. Oh well, it is what it is.

Plus, I knew this is what was going to happen once they merged servers. More people competing for the same low spawn rate. Three servers worth of people competing for the same fat santas over a third of the previous amount of land.
Please return party gathering. Wintera is ridiculous without it.. Takes so long to be able to get a snowball .-.
probably a precaution to players filing reports about getting "scammed" by buying a single bait for 20k on broker.

well im guess im need food from cooking artisan

im lost 3 Queen Salomon for quest :'(
It's not impossible to get. I got serval golden sharks with a tier 2 rod and popo bait. You don't need any dish.
Cutechan wrote: »

Each fishing spot has their own type of BAF. Queen Salmon are found in Celsian Lake (the one near Bleakrock village).
Perhaps the DPS across all classes needs to be completely rebalanced?

Try playing slayer and then come back and complain.
It cant be killed, I disabled it but it forces itself over and over.
The recent update now makes focus heal delayed. So if DPS are low asf, be ready to have a lot of delayed tickle heals

I forgot about those too. Seems that Ninja is always getting the short end of the proverbial DPS stick.
hi, I have a question! In this registration event, there is a reward of the Blue (Rare) version of Noctenium, it means that we can soon make the same as on the pc? :)
Now why again? How about we get reaper, warrior, zerker or valkyrie nerfed too? And substantially so.

Or the actual OP classes: Gunner & Archer.

It's a forced option for areas with excess players for CU and HH. It was their solution to low fps issues.

Oh Bluehole! :3

Yeah, I don't like their solution either, especially now that I don't have a terrible desktop that even runs into issues; in fact the optimization settings is why I couldn't be in HW channel 1 since it always made me crash.
I haven't tried the Golden Shark yet but I've caught multiple Queen Salmon, Fairy Snakeheads, and Giant Blues (probably 15 BAF in total) using the EMP bait. I failed the first two times I tried to reel one in but then got the hang of it and haven't failed a single one since those first two attempts. Some players must be really good at it because the rate of people catching them on KT server shortly after patch was impressive.

My only suggestion is to be patient and do your best to not press F too long to overshoot the box because if you do, you have to wait for the reel to unravel back to the box and that usually wastes a lot of time. While the fish is not pulling, you need to be reeling in along with the box consistently to make a bit of progress each time.

Or wait until there's a script for it! JK JK pliss don't ban!!1! <3 <3
Bought some expecting them to be tradeable to share with my buddy, but they are completetly untradeable... Like, everything else in the EMP store is tradeable, why are baits an exception? Doesn't make much sense seeing how EMP buying/selling is such a big thing, so people who don't know are going to scam themselves.
Name and shame so other players do not encounter what you have experienced. Don't give up though just find better people to play with.
Quick question guys: do I need to max out item EXP to maximize to change of success when using these PolishUp Scrolls? Or doesnt it matter?

The first day of hunting wasn't so bad for me. I got 2 steps, 1 hidden weapon, and a lot of the more common drops. Fat Santas were rare, but felt good to find some after hours of searching. Aiming to acquire 3 more steps and 4 more hidden weapons before the loot table changes.

Wanted to double check. Can you still only have one profession at master per character?

I'm in the process of testing this now. I had a slayer who was Master in weaponsmithing but only "base capped" in armorsmithing. Then I booted her up and noticed I could take the proficiency test in armorsmithing.

So it looks like you can master multiple proficiencies with a single character (only took 6 F**KING YEARS TO INCLUDE THAT, BHS!!), but it's only worth doing so if you're a brand new player (and thus probably don't have as many characters).
Someone linked it on world chat earlier. It's not tradeable. I had a good time killing Fat santas 2 hours after the patch hit. Took a break. Then never saw one for hours ever again.
Crafting has been simplified now to just a few designs. It was recommended to at least get 500 mastery first before the patch hit (for Smelting at least, idk others) since there was a lot of cheap fodders. Unlike now that you are really limited in both resources and on what to craft.
it's at the very bottom of the 'game' tab, but unfortunately it forces itself on whenever you're in certain areas such as fishing spots, guardian legion zones and some other places i'm unable to recall atm

toggling it only disables it for a few seconds. the option used to only apply when inside of cuv, and it was still just as bad back then
i was wondering what happened to my dps,honestly i was doing decent keeping up with dps with the same gear,now i have to use sup nocts and im still behind other dps with lower gear...i call [filtered]. you think a cloth melee would actually deserve to have good dps being that they are so squishy and can get 1 shot just by getting clipped from melee hits,but naah.
Login event 1 day travel atlas cannot be opened by both elite and non-elite players, cannot be banked, cannot be deleted.

AIHM cannot be reseted (cobalt already warned via discord) via scroll.

item claim stuck on loading and just fails to load.
Looked through all the settings, where to kill it forever?

Thanks so much for the link. I'm a bit lost on Twitch, so this really helps.
Just a quick question about that certain emote
because it specifically mentions it only works with a "sailor look"
can someone define for me the "sailor look" that it looks
Right now I have my sights on a costume called "Elin Castanic Tech Uniform" is it compatible with the Sit Emote ?
Thanks in advance
Btw, the NPC vender after this patch just have recipes for ingots D:
Three hours here, and I will admit that I have seen tiny santas (not even worth killing tbh), but I have yet to find one big santa. It's beyond sad. I am super desperate for the Frosty Snowman Footsteps, but there aren't even any on the broker. Are they tradable? I know they are really rare, but when I can't even find any fat santas, I don't know what to do.
Thank you very much it helped a lot!
Yea, but what about level them? I was doing some maths and: to get artisan (500p), i need 5k of ore (the recipe says 10 ore gives 1p), wich means A LOT OF GATHER or buy on broker. Is that correct or there is another way to get artisan faster?

100% gold quest booster and 100% rep booster are just relics of the past to me.

Hold up there buddy I wanna stop you right there.

Gold Boost yea, we don't hand in many quests and could probably do without the boost on those quests.

Rep Boost however applies to VG, not Legion Credits oddly enough but whatever, but VANGUARD CREDITS. Even if you want to say the VG Shop is useless it still is something people actually use, and it doubles the amount of credits you'd get from a VG hand-in.
Oh my goshh, your drawing is gorgeous and your style is lovely!! Do you have any social media where you post your art?
IM GONNA join in on this and complain.
I've searched for 2.5hrs and havent found one fat santa.
