As RAM loads increase Textures decrease, given that TERA has so many memory leaks, the longer you are logged on textures start to suffer. Welcome to high polished and optimized game.
Well seeing how they are always rock hard, they kinda have a Godly racial skill

Guild Recruitment[CH] 01/28/2017, 08:42 PM Aulon
We have not left, still here as a Guild and tend to focus more in game than the forums. As a guild we do not run the 30 man raid though some of our members run together in another Server group. Right now we are the oldest Guild on CH for a good reason, we are not your typical guild. Our Guild does not mimic a militarily or a corporate structure, rather more like a loud Italian family who look out for each other and value each others decisions to do what makes them happy. We are mostly working adults that want to log in and enjoy our time in game, running instances, hanging out in game, exchanging art ideas and projects and so on. Our main philosophy is in every game comes patches around 3-6 months where gear changes, the only thing constant is the people around you. We will never be the top PvE or PvP guild in TERA, we have never tried as they tend to crumble with no real social base. We have not left though yes we are working on helping the guild grow over several Venues, where I was the GM in TERA for four years, I passed it to Lae so that I can lead up the guild in another up coming tittle.

Castanics don't get their Scare till age 12 it is also a Blood Curse

What a Blood curse does is travel the blood lines, so if any one has a drop of the Blood used in the Blood Forges that where used to create the Crown of Phanes then they will have the curse.



what is the players council's take on this. I would like to know how they feel and if they may have had a vote among themselves on the matter.

You would only have about a 1/4 of them voting on it

Which servers? Population on CH has not seriously abated in the last year, even if people don't care about the latest end-game content. Population on FF isn't suffering at the moment. Maybe AV to a certain degree? But it's still higher than LoT and VoT were before they merged with HW.

But in any case, in less than two months they're scheduled to release the new class and, despite the pessimism, people are going to come back to try it out, as they always do. So merging the servers now does not make sense. Maybe at some point after that if the situation does not change, but it's really up to BHS to revitalize the content and make things better. (So far I don't think it's working, but hey...)

The active population on CH is not the same, I am sorry. End Gamers log on to raid than off, Casual players for the most part went to other venues, PvP went to other venues, RPers went to SiMs, FFA or BDO. CH is by no means the same as it was a year ago.

Thing about that girl, people assume just because you have a human man and a female Catanic standing two foot from each other they had babies. It could be as simple as they are just friends or the child was from a former lover or the girl herself is the woman's niece or just some random child who thought if she stood close she get candy.

Most of the Lore data bases are gone, Even En Masses own has been re altered since launcher as new people come in and redesign Web Pages. Back during the first six months of TERA the top four RP guilds worked on a project call "The Big Book of Lore" In which they collected what official lore was available between E books published by En Masse as well as the En Masse pages. There is a link to it under the RP directory if you wish to look into it. But yea most source are gone

BHS is awful at arching story lines together, Step Stone Island is an Alternative Universe from the original Lore, it is some thing put into play to help stream line starting area, the lore behind it was loosely done.

-An Island hidden from the rest of the World had a tree
-This tree gave birth to gifted children
-The Alliance sought to protect and study the Island, Tree and Children
-Argons attacked it killing most on the Island

What I dislike is Samuel in the original story was more on the Deva side than the Argons (Changing into some Demon during the Quest line to find Gidds Lance), he was a minor player at best in the grand scheme and they reprosented him as some sort of Argon General on Stepping Stone.

Don't put too much weight into combining the original Lore with what came after 2013, new Devs came in and they just do what ever.

Yeah but still, even for new players this most be confusing, i mean even when we get to velika and speak with Samael for the first time, it's like the adventure in Stepstone Island never happended!!! it's complitely erased from the rest of the story! it makes no sense! Dx

BHS does not care about lore nor will they, the devs that did are gone, the new devs just do what ever
Still waiting on the results of Bless redoing their combat which they are set to release early this year in NA, the biggest draw back of the game is how clunky it felt. But Story wise, Race Diversity, Large World, Class options, ect ect it is a step above most MMOs I seen release in the last ten years. The character customization is on par if not a little better than BDOs as well. Still though will have to see how it fells once they are done, but will be trying it out once it is released.
The only major issue I have with server merges is potentially losing my names.

I hate that it is just whoever logs in first, I think it should be based on total play time for that character, so long as you have logged into your character at least once over the past 12 months. They could combine server merges with another name reclamation, any character not logged into over the last 12 months loses their name, otherwise name goes to the character with the most playtime. I figure this would at least give players who do loose their name a good set of reclaimed names to choose from.

Isn't this basically what they did during the last server merge that created FF? Inactive accounts were dropped out of consideration, and other than that it was based on most play time.

I'm less worried about names than about people who have lots of alts and have to delete them if there's over 16 on a server.

But in any case, given that there was a server merge just recently (brought about in anticipation of the raid), I don't think they will do another one for a while. Despite what people on the forum say about the game being dead, actual populations aren't as bad as people think.

I find this extremely hard to believe, yes it is not dead but it is by no means healthy or active on more than half the servers.
The game is kinda quiet now, I don't know many that log on to do anything else but the raid. With future patches removing more side content and adding little to nothing new I don't see people logging on but to PvE now. Think it is time to seriously look at merging servers or start creating content that is a filler.

TERA missing too much to make Open World PvP popular sub level 65 and they are no plans to improve it. So this is the direction they are going, yes it would be awesome if it was different, but it won't be.

TERA crafting system in general is horrible, instead of making it better they are just slowly doing away with it. You ask for a revamp they will just remove it.
Most people I know went to BDO as well as others are waiting for Bless to be released in NA early this year. TERA won't die though, it will remain as a niche game but I do not see BHS, more so with them recycling BR and other old instances as new content and not adding any thing social or PvP to the game, improving TERA helping it to grow back to the population it once had.
I always wanted something special for Halloween, since it is a way out going to suggest it now. Would like Seasonal items like in the pic below (It is photoshopped and would take about 5 mins to make something that would work in game so yea)

TERA_2017-01-13_03-21-02-80_copy.png

Working off an idea that the Castanic Race has Festivals would be perfect for them to have on to celebrate the dead
You have people like me, professional adults who only play a couple days out of the week. On my days off I like to run with friends but I can only do two BP a day which takes 20 minish. Sure I could level alts to run more but why, why do that when I enjoy one class over another, TERA is becoming less and less populated with less options, if you want working adults to enjoy the game give us options or we will find other venues that have more. I am sorry but this game is to dated, too many issues that have not been addressed in over 4 years for you to not and expect it to regain a health population.

Just noticed that is funny how they decided it was a good idea to remove castanic arcane scars from the arms, but leave the ones on the back intact.

Its due to having two body base templates used by the EMP outfit files, one removes the arms and legs and the other removes just the legs. Each EMP template basically tells the engine which to load as a base to us. This template is often used for all the EMP outfits that came out around 2013 and after. Why they decided to use them I have no clue, really wish they just make one body base for Castanics and us it. Reason why the older EMP and Armor templates still have them is because each template has its own body base in its file. This was changed after the layoffs at BHS, guessing on Devs style of doing things wasn't the same as the originals Devs style.

Make it 3. The 2014 swimsuits remove all of the arcane scars from castanic females, including the belly and back ones.

Those files have their own body base verses using the Body Base Event file most others use

No offense but too many people think this way and focus on that alone. Too many Brawlers and Lancer caring too much about their damage rather than positioning the boss properly. If you are controlling the boss you are doing your job as a tank, period. If you are doing top damage while sacrificing control and positioning you are doing it wrong.

It's not supposed to be cleared by everyone?

Whether it is, or isn't, doesn't matter. Content that caters to a small player base only works when your game has the population of WoW. Other games that try this tend not to work out. High scale raiding is already fairly unpopular in the MMORPG scene, and having most of it targeted at a small audience is pretty suicidal. Then again, BHS seems to enjoy spending resources on content that ends up unused anyways.

OMG I think I just agreed with you for once, something clearly isn't right in the universe.
-Leveled 4 characters on MT, only was attacked once by some one 4 levels higher than I
-In all MMOs for over 15 years it is understood, you join a PvP server, you open to be killed at any time. This is part of the attraction for your more hard core PvPers
-TERA lost most if not all its PvP base, so this to me is them admitting to that and just melting MT into a PvE server with PvP option. Which is what many games set up for their PvE servers, you not flagged unless you choice to be.

Don;t care for the change myself but I gave up PvP on TERA long ago anywas, so doesn't affect me. Though kinda sad seeing even more content being removed and the game becoming even more focused on PvE alone which will make a decreasing player base even smaller.
Warriors from Essentail Mana leave out some things you should be aware of so do not relay on them alone. Look at Warriors from KTERA>NATERA. Things like using one tick of Rising Fury into Leaping Strike to escape, saving Charging Slash for your DPS up time for example.

People should see guides this way - they give you the correct crystals, rolls, and jewelry/innerwear/brooch to use (which is objective); but they also give you skill rotations, which in my opinion is subjective. There is just too many factors to take in - ping, boss moves and how much it roams around, party composition and coordination, RNG of boss mechs, and all those other stuff. This is the part where you have to work it out on, because guides are helpful but they can only help you to a certain degree. The remaining factors, you have to work on your own based on what suits you best.

I mean, sure sure there might be this "one best way" to play that certain class, with all those tests and maths and DPS parses; but it might not work out so well for you, so the best you can do is make it a guideline and tweak it and make it suit you so.

Agreed, guides are just a tool, not as important as experience itself. Don't follow them as though they are a religion, more like a philosophy that can change due to outside forces.

If some one post a DPS meter and then proceeds to harass you, screen shot it, report them. It is still against ToS to do so.
If you see it, record it and report it. Best way to resolve the issue.
Getting to server select screen but can not progress then get a Ticket Verification Error Error: 0101:ffff
Replace the Forceful or Pounding with a Bitter, Warriors are about those back crits

Your crit is low as well, very low. Look on adjusting it with accessories but don't surpass 330 total. Carry a combination due to a Mystic being in and out of the group to adjust.
Their faith in their Deities is their armor, if you lack the faith then you lack the armor.
The system in play though not perfect allows people to get gear rather easily. You can get tokens just by doing IoD and Celestial Arena, not stepping foot into a five man in which would completely gear you out in Guile. Think it is better to point these options out since they are there to help over come IMing with pugs. Also I like how people are rewarded by joining a guild and finding friends, one of the perks is not having to depend on IM.
Hiding in my Mom's closet one year when Dad came home early from work, was told to keep it a secret for some reason, something about he was hiding my presents and if I let any one know he will take them back.
Well the response to looking at a meter to measure a tank

- If you do so after the tank controls the boss perfectly, allowing DPS to play their own roles well, then complain no one will tank for you. Think you just solved you own issue. Tanks primary role is to control the boss so that DPS can do their job, if you want more from them your options are going to be extremely limited to a select few 1 percentile player base

Honestly was hoping TERA would mature into this realm myself.

TERA can and has the potential to become such game. The only obstacle in the way for that kind of transformation for TERA, is only BHS incompetence to see that they have a raw jewel in their hands, and do not know how to polish it.

No doubt it can and I am still hoping it will.

Depending on ping the attack speed/cdr isn't as helpful since you won't be able to take full advantage of it. You can also do triple meteor and triple arcane with no energetic, as the cdr from weapon is enough. Just depends on whether the boss moves around, which energetic won't realistically help with that.

Im going to guess you have to be Elin to pull this off as its impossible on a Castanic

RPers aren't a cookie cut type, you have so many different variations its hard to understand what people are looking for with out them explaining. I am like Mechy in a way where I often write stories based around TERA with friends, others I know will take a genre and roll with it instances, while others are more attuned to copy pasting themselves onto their avatars.

So options yes are not what they where the first 6 months of TERA, there is still RP but what kind are you looking for?

One thing I see often over looked is variables as well. In NA we have people playing from 20-250 ping, some times a lot higher. There is no one way works best for every player. This is why I tend to enjoy Yosha guides in which they break down game play depending on ping as well I seldom see it in any other guides and see it over looked very often in theory crafting on what is best.
A vid displaying the speed differences between Elin and Male Castanic, this could be useful in guilds to help concrete that Elins are faster. Followed up with a graph in which shows the damage over time diffrences between Crit of a Castanic and the AS of an Elin as well would lay to rest doubts people may have. For me until these things are done its theory crafting in which I would love to see the raw facts in guilds.

Even if they made what ever you consider content, it could take up to a year to fully develop it and it would take you less than a month to get bored of it. This has always been an issue with games, it's not realistically possible to produce content quick enough.

Then, what's the secret of WoW?

I think is lore and not gameplay, aplealing to the masses and not only one region.

-Multiple Arenas for 2s 3s and 5s
-Multiple BGs
-Old content is seldom every removed, down days people used to do drunken AQ 40 runs for fun
-Story line and Lore driven
-Side Content like Fishing, Cooking Crafting ect
-Not own by Koreans
-Even your Grandmother can play it on her 20 year old comp
-More open to community developement aka add ons
-They basically have a bigger budget and more interest
I seen a lot go mix of them that play high ping due to the fact they can not use Flame Barrage. Most will say it allows them to feel like the game play is smoother and played next to a couple that did very using this combo at high pings.

It not a 3rd party or mod, it setting values for little things such as smoothmousetracking to false instead of true. Here is the thing, the files from 2 years ago are not the same as the fiiles now, the engine ini has been tweaked to help optimize. So you may not want to copy paste that one and if you do not know what you are doing you may wanna leave it alone.
1. This is for the Nividia GPU users (This can be done with AMD GPUs just I do not know the method and tooo lazy to care since I don't us a AMD GPU)

2. Make sure you have the most recent Video Drivers

3. Open up you Nividia Control panal, easiest way is right mouse clicking you desktop

tumblr_inline_oi79l3OEZF1sirc0n_500.png


4. Find the DSR - Factors option and click the boxes. This tells your GPU it is fine to render past the Native resolution

5. DSR Smoothness is your sharpness slider, you can play with it a little to get your desired affect

6. Now load TERA MENU>Option>Video and you will see the new Resolution Option appear

You can set this before you plan to take screen shots then revert it back when you want to run instances as well. What I found is this gives me a good base to start with minimal effort, I’m lazy.

Example in Google Docs if you wish to look at it here

7. Now you have a much large resolution, next step is to us which ever you prefer Adobe or Gimp, doesn't matter

8. Just load the pic and resize it back down to 1920x1080, it will be crisper and cleaner than what you could do before

Popo and Elins, their relationships

The Amanic War created deep scars on the continent of Arun. Elinu—the youngest dream-daughter of the titan Arun—wept for her father’s pain and determined to protect him. From her own divine essence, she created the elins. When the task proved too much for the elin alone, they in turn awakened animals to create the poporis. Together, they have worked to repair, protect, and preserve the world they live in.

Why is that important?

When an Elin awakens a Popo a bound is created much like a Mother and Child bound.

Does this write-up exist in a non-Flash form? It causes my browser to lock up.


Was thinking about screen shooting it and posting it here but with out the consent of those that made it I am shying away from that. So for now it is only in Flash form. Most of the Race Lore co aligns with what is found here but it offers a little more detail about each races capitals as well as little elements such as Hummka (The Amani Sport that resembles Sumo Wrestling) Myrenia's Place (a famous Brothel in Castanica) as well as other little tid bits

because something has to be posted here in order to please the gods

The desert surrounding allemantheia can be the result of energy absorbing from the core, i think... and its walls stopped that comsuption. You can see the ancient walls from and old city in the frontiers, they look pretty similar to the actual city.

They lived in Sourthern Arun at the time of the Flower being toren, not where Allemantheia is now. Those ruins belongs to the Naga that the Elfs slain in the region.

can i get a extended version of the entire lore of tera? links etc? please and ty

A lot of the lore has been erased through the years, revised time over time on the En Masse site. What I have done though is linked the TW lore which has its in differences, pasted what we collected from the resources that are gone now and posted them in this sub forum. The Cuncil of Seven site still has the Must See Big Book of Lore on it as well that is a great resource, it was complied by four of the largest RP guilds back during the launch of TERA Must See Big Book of Lore
Another quick question: were there any 'War of the races' back then?

Yes

Amani vrs Devas before the Divine War in Northern Arun over Human Lands

Elfs vrs Naga

Elf vrs Orcan

Elf vrs pretty much every one until they where handed their first defeat by an Human, Amani, Barake and Popori alliance

What's about the High Elves civil war?

Lets start here and going to break it done into points

>Karas Created the Elfs

>Karas was the first God that took a hands on appraoch when teaching the mortal races

>He taught the Elfs abiut Arcane Energies, how to harness its powers

>So impressed on how the Elfs took to his lessons and how well they advanced he offered them a gift call the Flower of Life

>The Flower of Life was like a battery in which it story an enormous amount of arcane energy

>Karas feel into a depression after his wife past and disappeared

>The Elfs continued to practice what he had taught them as well as search out new ways to learn (Which lead them to have releations with the Giants and the Holy Empire)

>During the Divine War a fight between Sikander and Nerezzar got too close to the elves' city. During the Gods' battle, the Flower of Life was damaged. Its energies went dangerously out of control, draining all energy from their city's surroundings. This forced the children of Karas to watch the slow collapse of the civilization they had cultivated for so many years.

>Already blessed with great intellect, the elves devised a second device known as the Core to safely drain its energies. Because the Core was designed to absorb energy, it could be used to drain it from any source, making it almost as dangerous as the damaged Flower of Life.

>Two schools of thought arose as to what to do with the newly crafted Core.

>The High Elfs favored using the power as a shield against the clearly dangerous gods and their followers.

>The Wind Elfs wanted to release its energy safely into the world.

>The High Elfs where the ones whom had control of the Core

>For the first time in their existence, the elves went to war with themselves, as the wind elves abandoned peaceful negotiations and tried to take the Core by force, aided by the poporis.

>Wind Elfs and Popori allies lost as well the High Elfs wiped out the Wind Elfs in full

The Wind Elfs thought the Core was still Dangerous and the best course of action is to allow the Arcane Energy to seep back into the world, not only would it protect them from any more harm coming from an unstable device but it would also help to repair the damage down.

It depends on how it's done, the issue is, BHS is more than capable of make a system that just makes housing look bad. Look at their failed attempt at housing for ranked guilds (Sky Castle). It was boring, offered nothing other than an over sized camp fire, and did nothing. It was "just there".

I'd imagine people have a certain...idea of what player housing is and it seems fairly consistent as nobody feels the need to give details. So, I'm curious as to what it does, I guess. Is it an instance you buy furniture for and then invite your friends over for a tea party? Is it more like Farmville within an MMO? What is the purpose of player housing?

That's...absolutely pointless. Tera's world is huge, you can easily find a place to hold your tea parties.

@Yamazuki It really depends on what they decide to do. Sky Castle weren't popular because, well, they didn't actually -do- anything. And getting to them was too much trouble if you didn't have the spot in journal. If they make player housing that has an actual purpose, that could be interesting. But you are probably right and it'd just be a room you can buy furniture for(that you can't even use because /sit is not suited for it and there's no /sleep or anything else one could do in a house) and it'll ultimately be a waste of development resources.

It is for you, not for others, that I will agree on or it would not be so popular in other games as well as something that was offered as a perk during BETA promo and meet with excitement,

They promised guild housing during beta and we eventually got it. You can see how much excitement Sky Castles got.

Yes I did, I seen our guild Desire get very excited over it as well as other guilds. I seen people log on and go Let Go run things. I seen friends come together to do BR again that offered no real reward and find ways to make it entertaining such as Adventures in Instance Matching: Dapper Edition. Could it have been done better, of course it could have.

- Skyspear is of high demand from many also believe it has 5 template options

Side note there is a Russian site back during release that had all these, I will see if I can find it again

Most of the weapons in game have a different icon in the tooltip, showing different textures, which got so many exited for the wide variety of weapon models, only to later discover that all of this weapons shared the same texture when equiped, regardless of how it looks in the tooltip. Such a shame, but nothing we can do about it.

Thing was back then you have specail drops that where equal to what we think as VM from BAMs, these are the ones as well as quest drops that would have the special templates. Like the reward for doing Sky Garden long ago had a specail template you could not get any where else as well as several bam quest had some. These templates are now lost, the files are still there but never used.

o/ War tank, soon the revamps as well will come for them, making them exciting and new.
Each week I like to open up a thread for Q n A about lore. One subject at a time. If you have a question about please ask, if you have an answer, theory or opinion please offer it. If it is official or thought to be please offer links to a source. So to start off just need one person to offer a topic or question.

The benefits are purely social based, in other games you find clusters of friends escaping to their little homes to hang out between other activities. Depending on their interest they will hang out in voice and talk, they will write fan fic stories together, they will go over politics, it is like going over a friends house for lunch or dinner. It gives them a sense of a home in game, a place where people from over the world can feel more connected to each other. It has little appeal to those who are here mainly for PvE or PvP. Just like PvE where gear gives people a sense of pleasure, housing does the same for social players. Myself I think TERA could stand to grow a lot more on the social aspect, the less the game offers the smaller it gets.

As for the debate over it makes open world seem like a smaller population, yes it will. Though you could argue that open world now gives people the sense of been lost in numbers, very few are being social, they appear to be just afk in their own worlds.

>Zuras witnessing what the Deva's where doing to her once favorite Clan, she Blessed the Lunar Dancers, Casting a divine sword of moonlight that would shatter, engulfing them in divine energy. Allowing them the stregnth to protect themselves, to a point. They couldn't go head on against the Deva Armies but the new found power would give them the strength to fight off smaller divisions which made the Deva's think twice about hunting them down.

>Even the Lunar Dancers do not know where the Divine Sword came from, though elders tell stores of a shadow walking in the moonlight, watching them dance during the Festival where the Celebrate their beloved Goddess.
???? Where does this come from :o

It is just Lore Theory Crafting, taking Lore that is here and blending it with the new class since right now they just have a story idea, nothing published.
On a stand point from CH, Imp designs where unseen, myself I ran every thing since the release of Ambush. I seen to date ~20 Ambush designs drop, no Imp designs, This is running instances from VoK to RMhm. Some one suggested, I DO NOT know if this is fact, that they where supposed to drop from Rally Bams and CU but didn't in NA. The issue you can not find the designs on the broker, out of every one I know on CH no one seen one drop from anywhere since the release of Ambush.

Now if I went to TR I seen a surplus on the Broker near the start of the patch, I am assuming these where left over but three pages of Polar Rule Design. CH I think the last one sold on Oct 25th and maybe there has been one posted since. That is the concern of people.
That's pretty cold of them

I'm so excited! I now have a reason to delete my castanic slayer (which i'm not really interested in) and remake her into a new support class. :)

I may of over looked something but believe its a true DPS class and not a support. The debuff it applies to boost the Lunar Dancer's own damage and offers nothing to the other party members. Maybe I am missing something?

"In addition, because specific skills can buff party members’ DPSs, it will help the overall group performance."

I did miss something then thank you
