probably, but playerbase is kinda small tbh

even if you're rank 1 every season, besides the title I dont think theres much value to it. You get a mask ticket and some other small items, but they are supposed to be making pvp more relevent in an upcoming patch which might make ranking much more active. Even if they made a new server the main issue would be motivating people to do pvp (since pvp is dead most of the time)

dunno, never seen a mask from either and EM is basically the same as HM i think, just that he does the DPS check barrier less often in EM and has a timer instead

Fortunately, you don't have to have +15 gear to enjoy the content !

You can do all actual "Endgame" with heroic gear lol . But ppl not gonna play for stay on heroic gear.

AFKing in Highwatch and looking at your cute elin in +15 yellow gear w/ kawaii outfits or fishing while afking and playing other games while in said kawaii outfits = true end game

You can't say suck, but you can actually say some REALLY "graphic" words and they aren't censored...lol so idk the purpose of the chat filter

During the event, alot of PvE players joined to get exodor gear from the PvP event and it was pretty fun. I am kind of wondering though, is it possible that with KTera planning to focus more on Battlegrounds, there's a chance that FWC might return to Tera?

its not lazy
its a win win for everyone

we all need the tokens
WE DONT need more crap like 7 day costumes for elins

and it costs EME nothing but goodwill since the tokens are no trade items as is the exodor gear

and im not saying 20 tokens even 4 5 is fair

im happy with my yellow gear and all of my yellow gear have 3 rolls on it but finding a decent belt / mask is impossible, i only have 185 exodor belt tokens in bank so just a bit of those tokens would go a long ways since they're such a grind to obtain haha

server imploded you gotta wait a bit till its back up (issues been going on all day)

server imploded u gotta wait a bit

i cant finish the event, 4th time today that this has happened lol

Just wait, in a day or two, there will be entitled american kids creating "We need compensation " threads....

as an american, i agree with this and would like compensation for not being able to do the event :) (not really, but it would be a nice gesture)

I think alot of people were upset by what happened with the servers, will there be any sort of compensation?

I think alot of people were upset by what happened with the servers, will there be any sort of compensation?

Considering it was kind of the "birthplace" of my pvp experience, I would have to say yes, especially considering that I met so many great people over the years too (ive met many toxic people as well) and I would love to be able to run it again for nostalgia. I would hope that they wouldn't modify it though like they did grid where they removed the 2nd floor. I do see a issue with equalization though since pvp gear is roughly 60 ilvl +/-, how would they do the equalization for it? Also what would the rewards for it be like I wonder now that we have pvp gear?

servers are imploding and tera isnt working right atm

Cant login or do anything anymore and got trapped in a BG

people only accept skilled on dungeon .. i see some many people yellow set at +10 , ignoring all mechs , low dps , no body want carry p2w people . if you want get skilled .. make friend or a static party .

Im skilled in most dungeons (hard ones like AQ and Bahaar too), have +10 yellow gear, low dps and I still run most dungeons on LFG without a static party, same with IM and ive had no problems lol

Although to be fair, even before I had "skilled" status in my character's list for dungeons, I still managed to find parties for most dungeons without much of a problem even on LFG and I've met alot of nice people that way, one of those people became one of my closest friends in tera too

Actually I'm wondering how alot of other people feel about the current state of TERA. Currently, I've been playing for roughly 7 years but lately I feel like I lack the motivation to sign in to TERA on a regular basis. Alot of people say to "do PvE and play the game" but I feel like AQ is dreadfully boring and I feel tired after playing it similar to alot of other PvE. I had alot of fun when I was playing FWC and 2 floor grid a long time ago and I feel like I mostly played PvP since it gave me alot of fun in TERA. When Shorehold was popping a few days ago, it reminded me how fun that PvP can actually be and how fun TERA is / was when PvP was alive. With people only doing PvE now, AFK Fishing or AFKing in Highwatch, I don't really feel like I wish to play TERA online anymore or to log in much. So it actually has me thinking, what motivates you to play TERA still?

lol its been going on for like 9 years and been getting worse, so doubt it. Its even worse if you live outside of the US

nope afaik

With the new myth gear requiring alot of golden plates unless you have HO+3, do you think the price of golden talents will probably increase again?

https://i.imgur.com/O6bDHXZ.png - it requires upwards of 400+ plates without and 0 if you have HO+3

Shorehold actually popped at 1 AM (my time)...I was asleep rip. I would like a pvp guardian mission though, it could be pretty fun

i had 57 on my annihilation weapon on my most recent enchant...the amount of gold spent and effort has demotivated me from bothering again on alts, im just waiting for patch 88 haha

Same and shorehold is pretty inactive haha. I don't think shorehold will become active again though until pvp encourages new people to play it. The issue with that though is that when shorehold was active, there were so many kick-happy players and so much elitism that virtually no new people wanted to play it. Even with +6 there were people getting kicked in it (no call outs on the forum, but two of the "Larger kt guilds" kicked people repetitively).I would like to play shorehold again myself since I have 2 characters in +9 and I would like to have my others finished up too later on, but I think until there's something that encourages people to play shorehold and the queue-base is increased more, I doubt it will really be that active again.

but doesnt sorc have pretty much the most iframes of any class?

Yeah...Ive already failed 100s of times between my yellow and blue gear but Ironically im used to it since I did +9 pvp gear (tbh its pretty much the same system, just harder to get pvp mats / more expensive to get pve mats), but even then its really rough haha

Its listed in the patch notes but I haven't managed to come across one yet. Does anyone know if the world bams like LB-1 are available yet?

Maybe its just me, but I feel like since the patch alot of the community has become more and more inactive. When I used to play back on a different server pre-VK/KT we had almost the same activity level that we have currently on the server. Idk if this is a good sign or a bad sign, but I was just wondering how others felt about this. Any thoughts on the matter?

At a certain point, there's diminishing returns above 30k-40k it seems. Is there a threshold that's ideal to aim for?

Agreed, tera is teraboring without PvP ;(

i failed 42 times at +7 (not kidding, it got damaged 6 tmes too) and I had 4 successes in a row from +4-+8 on another piece of yellow gear, its super rng haha

@Aragoon said:
Wrost patch in Tera's history, all my friends quit because this patch sucks, very p2w, they need more creativity

well yes and no, I made millions, my gear is full +10 blue (still looking for yellow with good rolls) and I didnt spend a dime of $ to get it, just tons of farming (and selling the farmed stuff on broker). I would say that if you're planning to spend any money in this patch, its legit not worth it. You can get plenty of feed at outskirts and 2-4 feed (dismantled from improved feed) takes like 2-3 min to get versus being a credit card warrior.

That being said, it can certainly be a better patch lol

eh, what's the stream about? lol

seconded, I like GVNM and DFHM when lazeh

we all miss spacekatsu, does kitteacup play? lol

@Erulogos said:
NA didn't have the ecchi armors, now some of them seem to be (check the Fashion Coupon skins, especially cloth.) Which didn't make sense, since things like the Bronze Bikini exist, so Elins could show as much skin as any other race anyway. But coupons are harder to come by these days, so i don't want to burn some to have outfits changed suddenly later.

We need more ecchi armors~

no more ecchi armors? :?

you can make good gold there, but its through the blue / bam gear and not solo (unless you can deal with covering huge amounts of ground yourself). I made around 3.8m farming in the last 4-5 days

I've notice damage % decreases at around 40k amp +/- for the new gear. Does the calculation for amp damage % behave similarly to power and crit?

I agree @counterpoint I really hope BHS will adjust the feedstock and gear rates in the future if possible. I love the idea of leveling up my alts gear, but I hate the idea of endless grind for said alts

gib feedstock in battlegrounds please, I think alot of people would enjoy it

Spent 1.2 Hours in southern outskirts trying to farm Feedstock and no elite monster or even a feedstock drop. Any chance EME might update the game to allow feedstock to drop better? The current price on broker is too high imo for feedstock considering I failed 7 times to even upgrade a piece of the new blue gear from +1

I dont think the retool set for HO is even out yet in KR is it?

it makes a lewd meme ;)

trying farming for 4 hours and not a single armor feedstock :/

The droprate from farming mobs is insanely low, I farmed for over an hour and only 1 feedstock dropped and killed tons of BAMs. Is there any plans to make the feedstock for the new gear easier to get later on? (besides P2W solutions)

If I was to buy a Dark Light (for instance) weapon off the broker, would I be able to convert it later to Annihilation in upcoming patches? Im a bit curious since some classes doesn't seem to make much sense with the current gear drops (i.e classes like ninja are entirely magical almost, but have the option for annihilation gear)

Also I have one other question, do you have to have gear to +15 blue to upgrade to yellow? thanks :)

I see tons on the broker, but I only see greens drop when Im farming in Exodor. Is there a certain mob that needs to be farmed for Blue?

is there much of a difference between HO+0 and SC+9 for the mobs?

You can only do caimans with 5 people now?

I tried some of the smaller mobs but only saw green gear drop, is there a specific mob that needs to be farmed for it to drop? also is the rate really low?

Curious, does anyone else feel this way too?

For the final leave authorization in the 67 quest, it requires 30 of those, but killed 100+ so far and im roughly at 11/30. Is there an easier way to finish this quest? :(

ah I see! thanks :)

Hi, I logged in after the update but im unsure of what to do. I have a bunch of characters at 68 and a couple at 70, but when I log on them, I can't see new quests for aerial island or a way to access it. Are there any prerequirements besides lvl 68?

Im lazy and I run both end-game PvE and PvP, I dont mind teaching new players mechanics and I never kick people from PvP (or PvE) if I can help it. I don't think its everyone, but there are indeed some people that "want to only run with the best", I tend to try to avoid those kinds of people though and play for fun

kaiator is pretty dead tbh

ya tera is sitll running x86 too, needs better coding

Wait, rock the lancer?

same, can finally upgrade all my alts haha

@Enishii said:
get gud at pvp, get so good that nobody will even think of kicking you. Thats the solution

Pvp has been dead for a week outside of 3s. The issue is that the community was already pretty small and if you kick people from shorehold who just want to try it and might like it, then they won't que it and the pvp community won't grow. Same if you kick people because they "aren't good" they will simply avoid queing, hence you have dead battlegrounds. If you want Shorehold (or any PVP) to be active, then you need to be willing to accept that not everyone will be "great" at PVP and you need to be willing to play regardless.There's alot of people who just want to play for fun, but don't want to que because they don't want to be kicked

Look at it from this perspective as well, lets say you have someone que grid / CS and they work hard and finally get that +6 pvp set and they're excited to que shorehold. Shorehold pops and the people in the raid says "that guy is terrible, kick him!" and it keeps happening over and over again. Do you believe that person will come back to shorehold? Situations like that leads to people leaving PVP and especially shorehold (since way more kicks happen there than CS or Grid)

pretty much but I doubt BHS would bother suing them unless they made a ton of money off of it lol

nah, technically we all "have to start over" next month since you cant retool HO next patch. Come level with us theres an event on atm :)

its a meme mount for looks, no crit, bonuses, extra effects etc (think of it being the shorehold starlynn event mount except it can fly)

i think its pretty cool

Ironically, DFH is my favorite...you can be lazy in it lol. But yeah I do agree with you, even if you have the skill and ilvl, it takes a considerable amount of time to get the mount, I really hope they add another method to get it in the future as well (something easier if possible)

tbh I kinda like the look of the boat and that makes me want to try for it, but I kinda wish that it had some kind of passive (similar to dragon or phoenix mount). I think that would inspire alot of other players as well to try to learn / master runs like bahaars (its really hard at first, but once you get the hang of it its not really too bad)

1. Require the proper pvp gear. 2. Don't show pvp stats in the player's profile. 3. No pvp ranks on leaderboads. 4. Limiting the amount of kicks players can initiate each day. 5. Fix reporting system so people afking can be reported and banned from pvping. If they let people form their own parties, you'd have a totally OP party constantly winning. IMO not letting people party at all would be better. Make pvp fun like Kumas once was before they made all of the changes to it. Only reason they had to make it 5v5 was because they blocked level 65s from playing with lower levels.

A major problem with FWC were the sync ques, people still do it, but without being able to pre-form a party it's a bit harder. I would say yes for requiring the proper pvp gear, but +6 still gets kicked in SH often, so its quite a difficult situation. I think there are alot of people who like ranking on leaderboards, but even if leaderboards were taken away, people would still kick unfortunately and that just ruins the fun for other players who want to play in uneq pvp

out of all of them I only like DFHM :(

Like damage wise, is it worth putting it in to any skills? I tried 99 ep on a skill but it didn't seem to increase damage too much so im curious, is it worth it?

Also do want to add that when I do SH for a few hours, most of the kicks against players do come from certain people in manifest. Players like Polaris and alot of the older players are pretty cool, but ive noticed that most of the kicks come from a certain few in that guild (who do shorehold often). So i'm not calling out manifest as a whole for kicking people, but only a certain few from manifest that are overly elitist and "kick on sight"

not just that either, ive seen actual good players get kicked too. I'd really just rather play for fun in shorehold so I don't particularly care for alot of the elitism that happens in it and the pvp playerbase is pretty small (even a smaller amount of those people que shorehold) so its almost always the same people queing (from manifest, treehouse, yakuza, etc)

in a way thats why I miss FWC, it was a bit less toxic but it was less concentrated than shorehold and took more people to kick. Im pretty sure its against the rules to call out peoples names on the forums but ive noticed some of the same people who qued FWC and kicked people for "being traps" que SH too...and for the most part they aren't very good themselves (relatively speaking). For me i would be happy though if people just didn't kick at all (unless the person was an obvious troll and came in with something like guardian gear, and even then I would rather explain pvp gear to them instead of kicking)

tbh some people just accept regardless of checking gear in shorehold. Shorehold would be far less toxic if people didn't kick for no reason / randomly. Like yesterday I saw someone in full +9 get kicked and no one said anything when asked why shrugs

i used over 300 keys and din't get one, but assuming that silver tal and gold tal prices go up after this event, I stand to make a bunch of gold to help with my enchanting. So for me trying the event was worth it.

As for the mount itself, I would say that it gives the same as dragon (2x crit) pretty much. Afaik, the main benefit would be the combined resurrection effect, but its no different than just holding goddess blessings (those give res too every hour). It's really just an endgame luxury honestly

The calendar has been disabled, there is nothing for you to do to get access to it again. It was disabled due to some kind of exploit, as far as I understand it.

On a personal note, I'm not even getting notifications any longer. They were there for the first six days or so, but then stopped. I have no idea why things are so inconsistent about this.

There has been no timeframe given for when (or even if, if we're being realistic; no matter the words about it being worked on) it will return. The fix for the exploit requires work from Bluehole, but since we're the only region that even seems to use the thing, it seems very unlikely to have any real priority.

Personally, I expect that it will eventually be announced that it was discontinued. Perhaps the functionality might return as a more web page based custom solution, like the other regions seem to do (when they want to do such daily gift things), but a more frequent use of the two other in-game systems seems more likely.

The official word on it:
https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/32264/a-word-on-priests-door-pull-and-the-in-game-calendar

On the topic of in-game calendar, this feature will remain disabled until the underlying exploit is resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience.

wow I never know priests door pull was an exploit, I was always thought it was just a part of tera lol (like an actual intended part)

I really appreciate the fact that the staff have given us rewards boxes as an apology for the server downtime. But I only thought it was supposed to be one time only, but the community received credits yesterday as well. I was wondering, will it be an ongoing thing for the 800/400 coins and emporium credit box until the strongbox event ends?

is the server up?

oh wow, that would be kinda cool to have

im lazy lol

cant, fwc is ded (they deleted it), and pvp is pretty inactive since event

would be cool to have fwc back tho

^ title

nah pvp kinda ded right now

its pretty dead today to be honest, since the event went away BGs are barely popping if at all

thanks i appreciate it :)

Im not 100% sure if it's alright to ask here (idk what the rules are on asking for links), but i'm trying to find it on the forums and can't find it and thought it would be better to ask the community

any chance bgs will be active again soon? its double credit weekend and they're pretty dead

curious

curious

spin 2 win is fun though

yeah lots of people were hacking or something

My alt with +6 keeps getting kicked by people from kaiator and I can't finish the event on her since I got kicked over 10 times (yep, and she has +6 gear). Has EME considered doing something about the kicks in shorehold for people that just want to play casual on alts? Or at least eliminate the cd, so it's a little less annoying when kicked?

Also has there been any discussion about bringing back FWC? FWC was kinda toxic too, but compared to shorehold it was alot better in my opinion. And since it had a larger concentration of players compared to Shorehold, it was actually harder to kick people on average

you can get the weapon on your character (that you want to enchant) and it will be soul bound, but you can deposit it into the bank. Move the weapon / gear that you want to enchant to your character that has gold / plates and enchant, and rebank and give back to priest / alt. Its the easiest way to enchant across characters imo. The only thing it doesnt work for is brooch and innerwear

I have 2 characters with +9 pvp gear and 1 in full +9 pvp with new acc from the dungeons and they never get kicked. But my character with +6 is kicked because she's a "trap" in shorehold (by a certain guild and certain people constantly). Smh this is why shorehold is dead 99% of the time when there's no event and it's going to die again right after. It's pretty unfortunate really tbh

@ the pvp community, as a person who loves pvp myself and does it often, take my advice. Don't be elitist, the pvp community is already pretty small and kicking someone because they aren't "good at a class" isn't an excuse imo. If you want shorehold to be more active, you need to be more welcoming to people who want to try as well as the general community (i.e not kicking people just because you want rank and letting people learn)

Just wanted to put that out there, I do apologize for venting, but it's quite frankly annoying the amount of elitism and toxicity i'm seeing in shorehold.

I've spent millions and damaged my gear 100s (probably thousands) of times getting to +9 so i'm actually kind of numb to trying it for PvE and probably going to just play through. I think alot of people who never tried pvp gear enchanting (or just flat out hate it) will rage though and I'm worried that alot of people might quit as a result

I hope the community still plays as well since the community population is already getting really low

well the short version is that PvE gear is basically taking on the PvP system now, as a player whose already spent millions on enchanting PvP gear, im kind of numb at this point haha

Quaqix and other awesome players quit tera recently, feels like the pvp community is dying (and pve too)

Quaqix and other awesome players quit tera recently, feels like the pvp community is dying (and pve too)

nope never

does anyone else notice this? fewer lfg, fewer people chatting in global, no battlegrounds active at all, etc
