Since this Thread was Necro'ed I am going to go ahead and close it.
You got the Necromancer of the day award. Grats!

There's like, even a current thread about "coming back - worth or not?" discussion, and it's ON 1ST PAGE STILL: https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/20769/returning-player-questions

I can cut some slack if you came here through Google tho, but... well, guys don't go full Blessing of Resurrection on the threads...
Hi, was just researching on whether this was was still good to play or not.

From experience, I played Tera on the first day of release. The game was fun, if you had friends it was really fun. What killed the game was the slow updates especially when you were paying 30 bucks a month for subscription... That was steep. I gave eme a lot of chances. I waited 3 months for an update and never got one but a response to the community that it takes time to get an update out. By then it was too late, I left... Because giving a free 60-90 bucks just doing dailies man... really let me down a lot...

HOW MANY MORE HOURS IN MAINTENANCE?

Whoops double post somehow.
Does anyone else find the 'soulbound' status of weapons and armor to be extremely limiting? Not only does it take forever to farm max gear on one character, you have to farm it all over again if you want to try a different class. Games like Runescape and BDO don't make you do this (probably one of the reasons they are so successful); if a player gets bored of one class (which they do) they should have the option to sell their current gear to another player in order to fund the appropriate gear for the new class they are interested in playing. The current system does nothing but hurt players who don't stick with the same class for an entire patch(s).. Playing one class gets extremely boring and not having the option to sell gear that you've spent hours of time creating in order to transfer to another character, so it can reflect all of the effort you've put into the game is extremely inconvenient and limiting, as players essentially have to start over if they want to try another class.

Does anyone else feel that 'soulbound' status shouldn't exist?
Also, the liberation limit is completely useless, too.

what about those who already buy those items expensive asf, like i did.

That seems like an incredibly short-sighted reason to attempt to deny this opportunity to other players. "Because I suffered, they too must suffer." A better and more progressive approach would be to attempt to help others avoid your past suffering. Wouldn't it be best to give everyone access to this and thereby improve everyone's game experience?

Also, the unfortunate truth is that you paid what you thought the gear was worth, but worth changes. It's the risk we take dealing with an uncertain future.

What do you mean dude??? dont talk here like you know me ''i suffered'' so i want to other ppl suffer'' comon....
if we are asking for things that i say that put the awakening back in the gears, to make me a glove dw and have 11 power more.

I mean you can still acquire +15 DW Gloves, you just need to have the design as the materials are able to be acquired through Metamorphic tokens. Resize kits can also be acquired through the metamorphic tokens as well. Seems the issue for both gear and previous jewelry is just the lack of design availability and it honestly wouldn't hurt to have them added as well, although there are more gear designs than jewelry designs.
Back when we used to queue corsairs stronghold for insta pvp action...

Any piercing projectile afaik, that's why in that video the archer's slow trap hit multiple times, but obviously did very little damage because it's not a damage skill.

The low key ads for a 3rd party program that is against the rules in this are interesting.
What is the meaning of this called proxy and is it the same as VPN ( pingzapper? ). I am asking because i keep seeing all sort of talks lately about cheats and stuff which does not make sense since as far as i know the VPN only helps with the ping up to a certain point.

Also, i am from Europe and i have started player 4 years ago on NA when Gameforge was not the best and even since i kept playing on NA so i do not really have the change of heart to start all over on Europe though i have seen clearly what it means to play with 50ms on Europe or 160-200ms on NA ( also being ignorant all these years.. i thought that the game is somewhat playable on NA so i could live with it until i tested EU recently and felt like receiving a divine blessing ).

It is incredibly unreal when you try to dps/heal/tank with 160-200ms and your skills either do not hit in time or they mess up your rotation as compared to 50ms or lower when your hits hit instantly and everything including the dps/aggro/heal rotation works like a charm ( unfortunately, i have also thought that because of this as a non NA native i am probably losing 10-20% dps/aggro/heal/etc depending on class just due to the delay.. and it is no joke because if you ever played WoW back in the days where damage meter was super evolved then you could see that even in a tab target game you could lose important heal/dps/aggro over time whenever the servers were unstable and there was delay ).

Nope, Like ignore being stunned by other players in CU, teleport hacks and many others we already saw before.

I know at least 4 guilds where players were banned for using those kind of modules sold by some proxy devs and believe me that most people who reported them were in the same discord server as them.

Playing fool about the cheats devs had sold in the game for profit and to annoy EME and players won't give more value to their other tools and the only fact we have is EME and BHS are the owners of the game and they are the ones that makes the rules, not a group of shady people that were trying to create a private Tera server since almost 6 years.

It won't surprise me if some of the current proxy modules devs are the same that tried to compete with EME and GF back in the past when Tera was released on EU and NA and we have an unnoficial private server.
By the way, if someone doubts the issue with ping, you can try yourself it by downloading EUTera. The +100ms you get is definitely noticeable and inconvenient.

Players that play on high ping often don't realize how disadvantaged they are until they try playing this game on lower ping.
With no latency, you can expect about 20-50%+ increase in both survival rate and damage output. That's just how ping-dependent TERA is. Is it any wonder that average KTera players consistently and significantly outDPS average NA players in every patches? Sure, they have talent system (And now Awakening), but I bet you that the ping plays a huge role too.

Playing with 150ms ping means your every action takes 150ms longer. It doesn't seem much, but it affects EVERY action you make and any skill chaining you do. They add up and it's very significant. Each shot of archer's Rapid Fire has to be acknowledged by server, so that one skill is like 7 X 150ms. And Rapid Fire makes up a significant portion of Archer's overall DPS and you really wanna just exclude it because it is unfriendly to high ping?

With enough practice you can clear any dungeon on high ping albeit some deaths and probably carried by other party members, but you can clear it. Some players may be OK with just clearing dungeons. Other players are more competitive and they need that competitive drive. There is a difference between Just clearing the dungeon and clearing the dungeon well and efficiently. High ping players that want to be a bit more competitive can't compete with low ping players and the only way to keep enjoying this game is to use proxy to reduce the input lag.

I've done some research and talked to a number of people. From what I've heard and seen, even paying real $$ for proxy scripts is the best investment you can make in TERA. Fluid gameplay you get as a result of the proxy script is worth more than any innerwear or dragon/phoenix mount that EME cashshop sells. Best of all, script is not in a lootbox. You may have to pay like $150, but you get exactly what you pay for - No script lootbox. If you still don't wanna pay, there are free ones available to everyone.

If EME/BHS want to get rid of proxy once and for all in NA, they have A LOT of problems to solve. I don't see the proxy going away anytime soon. It's staying with us for the foreseeable future. Sure, they may ban some proxy users here and there (mostly through player reports), but that's all they can do.
just think how laggy the game will be when the awaken class skills come out here
If BHS doesn't repair how skills behave on high ping before they roll out a final fix for the proxy issue, then they're shooting their north american branch in the foot. The discord related to this sort of modding has thousands of people in it. Dozens of my friends from outside the U.S. who play this game have said they wouldn't play this game without it because their skills become virtually unusable and official developer solutions either never came (after five years!) or were coming from a place of inexperience ("just change your rotation to not include your biggest hitting skills!" etc). Don't leave players hanging or you won't have any left.
Until BHS fixes things like Ping tax on skills, Desyncing (you know stuff where someone is using skills and teleports across the place once they're done), lag and other stuff (Like some QoL stuff like Auto turn in vanguards, auto lockons that make lockons skills USEABLE for higher ping players etc) that Proxy (The good, innocent users) fixes, it will never be gone.

Every patch that was meant to "fix" it, is reversed within a few hours to a day.

If BHS just made a built-in lag compensation like what proxy does that would make proxy useless. Problem solved.

Korea is small they wont do it because they don't see any issues like this over there.

If you have a large ping then do what everyone else does with a large ping and get used to it or move. Using a proxy doesn't just "lower ping", the people that say that are fooling themselves. It wouldn't make Proxy useless, people would still use them for the other things it allows you to do.

People that use Proxy are a plague, especially in PvP.
@Lapomko nice idea i wonder if they got this idea i they would run with it it can be an option toggle if not needed @eme staff good idea. idk
If BHS just made a built-in lag compensation like what proxy does that would make proxy useless. Problem solved.
I know a dozen of players banned for using proxy modules.

Some of them are joining Tera EU, good work for Tera NA on banning them because they were really exploiting the game with modules that allowed them to do things you couldn't do normally.
Well eme can check a players logs to know if they are hacking but still that ain't enough and why they keep making new stuff instead of fixing their game awakening is coming when they should have been fixing the game why is that so? unless the game is perfect because of the internet speed in Korea i wonder!

I had a friend use it to test it right after they "fixed" the exploit, it worked lol
But I think they mostly focused on fixing the HTML exploit, not the megaphone itself.
If they even bother responding to this, they will likely give you some official posturing or some one liners about how its "wrong", and how they are "actively" doing something against it. When in reality, until they make an official proxy of their own (or whatever else to fix ping issues), they can`t do much against it. Ive said this in other places, it is more the likely that they "have" to address these issues when "pesky" good Samaritans point them out (I have complained about it as well), but they cant afford to kill something that effects their playerbase to such an extent. Oh sure, there will be people out there that will support whatever they say, and vomit responses for them. "Justifications, reasons, excuses" whatever. Thats great but I don`t care about that, or about other peoples opinions around this subject. That is not my concern, I am not tech support. I dunno who started the whole thing, but the way I see it, these proxies exists because BHS failed to deliver on a great many things. They made their own virus by not fixing things they should have, and by neglecting the needs of the community. And proxies are just one of the evils around.

Don`t get me wrong I strongly object to any proxy or cheat, probably more then most people do being as I don`t think any player should resort to that. However, while I can understand the possible technical limits which would involve such an undertaking, I honestly don`t care much about them. Thats not my problem. And my opinion is the same as it has always been. Talk is cheap. They should either provide alternative solutions to existing problems, or find a way to stop all players from using them, or just go back to keeping in total silence about it this subject and keep showing everyone that their hands are tied. Let me guess: "you're wrong EME has this under control!". No they don`t. Spare me the circumstance, proving i`m wrong does not require words, nor opinions or meaningless platitudes I don`t care about. Proving me wrong requires actions. Anything else is just a bad joke ive heard many times over.

Holy necro batman!

Anyways, no your elite-related items will not become useless, you can still open Elite Boxes without having Elite. (If you can't, that's a bug.)

I believe you get reward points when purchasing Elite, because you're spending money, and that's just a perk you get, is reward points. You get them when you spend EMP, such as Bank Expansions, Wardrobe Expansions, etc.

It's your own fault for not paying attention. Last time what happened to me, I listed an item with 1-2 less 0's behind it and lost a lot of gold. I put in a ticket and they said they can do nothing about it. I presume the same applies for if you buy the wrong item.

Its different. In this case, someone unethical is intentionally trying to trick other players into buying things that are pretty much worthless. No one really tricked you into listing an item with less zeros. Even if EME does not actually change the item name this thread can at keast raise awareness.

it's mind boggling how people just blame the victims and not the perpetrators. These are the same people that will blame the rape victims for how they look or dress rather than blaming the rapist. Simply disgusting.

Oh?
Like it doesn't matter if you use or not a 3rd party program?

On a serious note, learn to read.
If you made a mistake, learn from it.

Fraud is fraud and people doing those frauds usually looks for new players to make them their victims.

Do you really dont grasp the severity of this? Those people are discouraging others, I have seen some of their victims and I am glad some of those who abused of them are already banned (casually they were also exploiting the game).

That kind of behaviour should not be accepted or tolerated. these people trick new players into buying those things making them believe those are more valuable than they really are worth.

Are we really blind about the issues that actually hurt the player base?

EME actually banned players for placing a diamond ticket at diamond price?
39d1b2450403830ee2b7d4fd49575f29.gif

IF you didn't understand that sentece then sorry, I thought I made clear that they were using exploits and they were banned for that, not because they were scaming players. Or is there something that means different in the words you marked in bold?

Are you butt hurt because personal issues?
how about you learn to read and distinguish a diamond and a token in the picture
go play eu tera, its much better atm. EME sux a$$
Scam or not: This is another of those "Quality of Life" enhancements that can be done without much effort.
It also helps cleaning up the trash when you're looking for the actual diamond on the broker, no crap listings trying to fool you or just plain bothering you. Very similar names or icons on items is an annoyance for anyone, experienced or not, specially if they vary wildly in price.

Anyone experienced can see the difference, but it's no reason why it would be bad to change it. QoL, keep that one in mind. Same goes for the confirmation button to delete an item, you may say it's not necessary at all and bothers while cleaning up inventory. But trash items may stay close to good and expensive items on the inventory and end up getting mixed up in the trash cleanups, and the confirmation gives one more step to help avoid this.
By the way does the confirmation button have an icon of the item you're discarding? If not then yet another simple and useful QoL improvement.
Have to look what youre buying out. This stuff works in real life too. And many of those smart guys even do it legally. I agree its frustrating to victim, cruel and infair but world isnt perfect. Many people live on the rich soil called "trust" and "not attentive" using it. People can set any price to stuff they have.

Thanks for the topic to op, good way to save some people from this trap! :+1:

Thanks mate!

It is unfortunate but reality. Hopefully collective whole can work together to at least reduce the amount of petty scam/scheme from rising!
Partyblast wrote: »
You can list any item for any price you want, the item name AND icon are both different so it isn't a scam or trick in any way. You can clearly look at the item description and see what you are purchasing.

An Item scam is when you use two very similar items to trick someone into paying a lot of money for something near worthless, in this case the only thing similar is the fact a diamond ticket has the word "diamond", just pay attention to what you buy.

Actually,

When people search, their intention is clearly based on 'item' and 'price'. When general population price of an item "A" is usually 14k and your intend was to buy that item "A" for lowest value as possible (and it does help that item "A" is absolutely needed for gear progression), most people with same intend are literally racing.

With that being said, most people, when using Trade-broker, uses search bar and in there they will type in letters or words as close as possible to your intended item you wished to find. So, if person wanted to, for some reason, buy diamond ticket, they will type diamond and omit ticket part. And it does populate, for the most part, words with diamonds in the front. Than next thing you know is mix listing of two different icons in such manner:

A 13,999
B 12,999
A 13,499
A 13,499
B 12,499
B 13,499
A 13,499
A 13,499

Person opinion, if I want something so i can quickly get on with the gear progression that i've been working towards so long and hard for and this is only piece of puzzle i need, I would be in rush as well. I could be completely wrong too for I've never been scammed such way but I think this could be the one of the many reasons why people fall for it.
Have to look what youre buying out. This stuff works in real life too. And many of those smart guys even do it legally. I agree its frustrating to victim, cruel and infair but world isnt perfect. Many people live on the rich soil called "trust" and "not attentive" using it. People can set any price to stuff they have.

Thanks for the topic to op, good way to save some people from this trap! :+1:
Alright,

Lets clear things up a little:

1. I, the one who posted this, am not the victim of this scam
2. I wrote this to catch EME's attention with on going issues
3. Raise awareness to player community to prevent future victimization to such petty scam

With that being said, I would like to make few additional comments to this post (and to those to commented)

Main focus of this post was based on idea of "how to make the gaming environment more fair and clean". Every who commented on this post seem to understand the existing threats among player community involving players with negative intention and their motivation of certain behaviors have caused and impacted many players to become victim. So, on that note, it's working the way I intended (to an extend). I originally wanted an open forum post debate where all the players in the community can talk and share and idea of certain stuff and possibly EME can see it and reflect it on the future updates to slowly but surely improve the game. Yet, you are all here being salty and throwing salts at each other... This post is definitely not an "Made In Tera" Salt product advertisement but rather an open debate.

Also, I wrote this in hope that players can play more safely and with alert when they are using Trade-Broker system. Many of you already mentioned, paraphrasing, "It is your fault because you were careless". This is also true and I completely agree with you as well. However, if you flip that side of a coin over, you will see the other side of the argument. 'Well, shouldn't the perpetrator, one who 'intended' to creating delusion using similar name of an item and price set up to 'personally benefit', be punished at least mildly but with fairness and firmness so that lesson can be learned. Pretty much, all i wanted from this post was to raise complete awareness and as well as put a shame to those who abuses this. Nevertheless, notifying the game publisher in order to create either prevention measures or remediation measures. Thus, I suggested that, why not change the name of the items so clarify things for players. On that note, I do not have much of knowledge of how many times in game are similar to a point where players often get into some issues with. However, if it presents probable cause and inevitable threats to players in financial ways, please list them below and i will use 3rd party communication applications such as Teamspeak3 and Discord channels to properly distribute the list for EVERYONE to be familiar with the issues with item names.

So ! enough with the salt fight, but let's be more productive as a collective whole and possibly come up with some decent solution to help EME to fix such petty scams from ever happening in the future. Such scam is definitely unnecessary. I don't even know why I have to even spend extra effort of be 'careless' for such petty scam (although never was victim of it) when we can just simply prevent it as a collective whole. And this goes to you to EME staff who is reading this!

Before closing this up,
I would like to take this time to show my appreciation to everyone to viewed this post and commented on this post! Despite my disagreement with few comments, all feed-backs were well voiced and I sincerely thank you for your time and your effort in commenting. It at least that shows your interest and respect to this game and the community in many different ways that we need.
Thank you very much !

Its different. In this case, someone unethical is intentionally trying to trick other players into buying things that are pretty much worthless. No one really tricked you into listing an item with less zeros. Even if EME does not actually change the item name this thread can at keast raise awareness.

it's mind boggling how people just blame the victims and not the perpetrators. These are the same people that will blame the rape victims for how they look or dress rather than blaming the rapist. Simply disgusting.

Oh?

Fraud is fraud and people doing those frauds usually looks for new players to make them their victims.

Do you really dont grasp the severity of this? Those people are discouraging others, I have seen some of their victims and I am glad some of those who abused of them are already banned (casually they were also exploiting the game).

That kind of behaviour should not be accepted or tolerated. these people trick new players into buying those things making them believe those are more valuable than they really are worth.

Are we really blind about the issues that actually hurt the player base?

EME actually banned players for placing a diamond ticket at diamond price?

Like I said nobody is actively looking for somebody to scam. People are allowed to list items for whatever they want. Yes it's a bit scummy but banning/punishing people for something absurd as this is just trying to protect people that don't know how to read.
I just find it counter productive and the severe hugbox mentality kind of bothers me because this is an mmo.. A virtual world where people can play a scummy merchant if they wish to.
You said you flip and raise market prices yourself, in my eyes that might be scummy too if I decide that a golden talent is worth 10 gold and you're selling it for 35 (just pulling numbers out of my [filtered]), this is no different, it's playing the market in one way or another. Besides this isn't a reliable way of obtaining gold and I don't think large amounts of people were scammed by this. Changing the name would help, but dummies will always find something to get tricked by and demand punishment for the person smart enough to trick them, it's a never ending cycle.
Nobody lost real life money, nor did anyone lose a humongous amount of gold.
Why do careless people always have to be taken care of? Reminds me of kindergarten honestly.
You can list any item for any price you want, the item name AND icon are both different so it isn't a scam or trick in any way. You can clearly look at the item description and see what you are purchasing.

An Item scam is when you use two very similar items to trick someone into paying a lot of money for something near worthless, in this case the only thing similar is the fact a diamond ticket has the word "diamond", just pay attention to what you buy.

Perhaps I'm blind due to EME banning my boyfriend without proof.
Always be careful before placing and/or purchasing items from the trade broker.

And the placing of rape comparison in this case is ridiculous.

I mean the Item icon is entirely different as well...how lazy/not paying attention do you have to be to not see it tbh...Maybe people got to broke they couldn't afford to pay attention after "accidently" buying tickets

This is such an absurd and ridiculous comparison. Excuse me but rape victims can do nothing to prevent rape.
But you can prevent yourself from being stupid that's for sure.
This can only serve as a lesson.
I know people that sold normal niveots (not the fine ones) for 600 gold and made decent profit from it.
Is it a bit unethical? Yes. But you still depend on people being blind/not paying attention before they buy things. You're not raping them geez.
And they're not advertising the diamond ticket as something it's not. They just list it on the broker and people that let themselves be exploited - get exploited. They're not telling the buyers "hey dude if you buy this ticket you'll be able to cash it in for a diamond, I'll include one for free!", nobody is being tricked here. People should just learn how to read descriptions and Oh I dunno check broker history or when such a decent amount of gold is being spent they should be more careful.
Victims sometimes are to blame, they're not always free of judgement - especially when they suffer consequences from not being careful enough.
Even in normal every day trade people will do anything and everything to trick you and earn the best amount of money with the least amount of effort. It's not a foreign concept and I don't see why it shouldn't have a place in a virtual market controlled by players, it makes it all the more real and interesting.

you learn lessons pretty quick in tera when it costs a lot of gold. you will learn to read something and then re-read it before confirming.

If players do not pay attention before purchasing an item, it is their own fault.
Shall we change all items with similar names?
Hey staff of EME!

I am seeing an increasing number of unethical players who are trying to 'abuse' the system and victimize other players for their own benefits.
Numerous people have been trying to "Sell" diamond ticket for the price of diamond. They are not the same in case someone who doesn't know the difference.
One is worth 10g which you can purchase through Baharama NPC and another one is worth minimum 10,000g which can either be crafted or dropped from dungeons. So many people have been victim of this stupid scam.

-Suggestion-
Can we change the name for Baharama tickets? For example, for currently gold ticket, change it to silver ticket and current diamond ticket to gold ticket. And just change the value and images of it (it's really changing the name and flipping current ones around).

P.S.
I have no clue as to what the staff of EME do on daily basis. Must be really busy which I don't doubt. But if you have thoughts, interests, and respects to players in game at least log in and see what is actually going on yourselves instead of relying completely on players and player reports. Please.

When your friends aren't on 24/7 at the same time you are, nor are your guild mates, you really don't have a choice, so your suggestion is completely non-helpful. [Removed]

deal with it, or solo the boss, RG is ezpc

RG yes. But let's talk about the 4 and 5 star dungeons.

Let's put you in there solo and when you need help let's say "deal with it".

You must be fun at parties.

It's obvious you're a troll, so I won't be entertaining you any further past this point.

bru, just drop out, dungeons aren't special or rewarding anyways.

Neither are your comments, but guess who ain't dropping the topic?

I hate it when you do a bg or dungeon and you have afk people or they go offline and not return, but I would rather have to deal with that than letter the party leader have absolute kick power. this is one of those no win situations and it would be abused. its a hard fix to do.

This reminds me of the old channelworks runs where there was this kyra event and some players used to queue as two then kick the third player after the last boss was being killed to prevent him from looting his share of kyra shards...

And even without such a situation i think that the force kick would do more harm than help because a lot of players would end up being kicked for even the smallest reason..
I'm against this because anyone can be leader and this would let people potentially disband party to troll and make everyone lose a run. So just drop and do something random those 15 minutes of dropout or log onto your other char and do stuff on that.
instead of being stucked in that party, just leave and get 15 minutes dropout...
