This event isn't like the old one. In the old event, each items has its own chance to drop, so you can get super noct, miner hat, and mats in one run if you are lucky, but at its current state, this event is worthless.
Not to mention I'm not sure if it's even on. We did 8 trnm and seem to get nothing.
I was gonna say it seems like nothing but Titan's junk drops much on nm, but I finally saw a Smart Dyad, RNG gonna RNG, I guess.

It is pretty depressing though that you still have to roll against your party for the drops. Nothing more disheartening than finally seeing the drop you want and losing the roll. They really should have given everyone an individual drop mailed to them after completion. Even if the odds were the same of getting the good stuff, it would actually make me feel like an event was happening compared to people picking up stuff instantly and having to scroll up through logs to see if I even had a chance to get something worthwhile.

The Emporium is something I have been hoping they would update for quite a while now. However, outside possibly implementing a double points event or even a TGIF type weekly event to earn 2x points only during say, friday, or friday during certain hours (I like the term TGIF meaning friday :P), the Emporium itself shouldn't be touched at this point until the coming gear progressing changes arrive here in NA.
I agree that any changes should come at that time, since they will be forced to. At least, one would hope they feel forced to change their whale/no lifer incentive system once its offering even more outdated rewards than it already is.

Normally i roll my eyes at "EME fix plz" threads, but this one is about something they actually made I think? And there should still be plenty of time before that patch hits to actually figure out what to change and do it? Here's hoping anyway.

noobs you dont know the fastest way to get catalyst top kek ive only seen 2 people that though the same as i when reading where to get the catalys xD

Kelsaik?
If it takes any amount of actual work from BHS and isn't just a switch Spacecats can flip, there is going to be a wait. Oversimplification, I know, but that's generally how things are. So while changing what is equalized and bringing back leaderboards may be good ideas, you will just be disappointed if you expect changes immediately, and no sane community manager wants to commit to anything that might not come through, when they are the exact person who has to deal with the backdraft.

Korea has never had it. It was added to the NA version of the game during the betas to stop people from channel swapping during pvp encounters in the open world.

All you need to do is make the old ones tradable for upgrade at a rate of 2-1 and the problem will be solved. I for one would end up with about 500 of the new potions if not more.
2-to-1 is incredibly optimistic. If they ever did this I think 10-to-1 is much more likely. Just look at how many scales they cost, how expensive other premium consumables are, etc.

ehh...playing a lancer...and having a "Warrior Tank in the party" makes it to be annoying for me. The Lancer is the tank of the party. Supposed to be. When I try and keep agro on me. so that the rest of the party can do their thing. It does not make my job that much easier when I have a warrior insisting to pull agro from my job. Just saying. But if that is something you want to do and find more enjoyment and challenge from it, by all means go for it. However if you get in a party with a lancer..don't be hard on them as you pulled half their job from them, there by making a large portion of the parties successa bit harder. Just my opinion.

There are 4 tank classes on Tera:
  • Berserk
  • Warrior
  • Lancer
  • Brawler

If you are a Lancer and IM for a party then the Warriors you will be matched are for DPS and not for tanking.

Tell them that. When you get in a dungeon you change change out your glyph set up and crystals too. You can change out your gear with the simple click of a saved set up if you wanted to tank the dungeon.

While people may consider Berserkers and Warriors Tanks. I don't. I consider them dps. Brawler I consider a burst dps tank like Gunner.

Did You even understand what I told You?

I most certainly did.
I gave my thought on it too.

Considering that..I have an agro crystal, and purposely place agro crystals on my jewelry also. With my skills also glyphed to pull agro..

Oh yes I do see them die quite often. Maybe its an adrenaline rush for them...more challenging. I don't know. The fact is As a lancer...By class.. in a party...Should be pulling the MOST agro. The warriors agro should not outshine the lancer.

Getting back on track...

I agree if tanking dps such as warriors is his style than by all means go for it. However as a warrior jumps around a lot to dodge attacks and using his agro skill to keep the attention on him and not the healer, is good; should a lancer be in the party..that player should keep in mind that the lancer is the 'Tank" of the party.. Supposed to be.

Now play what class you want. Find your style. Heck play them all try them out. I did the same thing until I found a class that suited me.

I can't tell if it's a language barrier, or you're a troll, or you're just immune to logic and common sense.

If there is a Lancer in the party constantly losing aggro to a Warrior it's because the Lancer is way outgeared by the warrior or just bad at their job. Nobody is actively trying to steal aggro on a dps warrior except trolling their friends once in awhile.
Excited for that 8.5 buff so i can skip vm9 if I wish. vm 9 being 8.6% better or whatever made me pretty sad before.

You know there's gonna be 9.5, right?
How about Lunarian? We've already got a flying whale...

In truth, BHS actually intended for future characters to get to endgame fast, not just reaper, but they had a new (and clueless team) and they finally decided that it is not worth the effort to make a whole new "tutorial island" for each class.

Oh yeah, I didn't even consider how much effort they would have to put in to make a custom tutorial/story bit for each class. Probably the real reason.
Reaper was the first class added after launch. At the time, BHS probably figured people wouldn't want to level up another class again, so they started it at 50 (really 58, after the brief tutorial). Later, they realized that starting people at a higher level meant those players wouldn't actually learn their class before hitting endgame (and selling level 60 scrolls on the cash shop would easily make money from lazy people) so every class after reaper went back to starting from the beginning.

If you mean your simple question of "can I get compensation for you deleting an item you said you'd delete months ago" the answer is obviously gonna be "no" and everyone knows it. What they are trying to do is explain why this is a silly question.

It is usually at around 8.00 From just crystals and Prime Battle solution.

It is not worth giving up crit chance for crit damage because the roll percentage is too low. The only reason why Zerker uses 0.3 Crit Power is because Thunderstrike's CD is so low you basically have it up every other skill.

While I appreciate your comment. I am curious to what your crit power line reads. What are your numbers?

This may or may not be my own road to self discovery in seeing the math for my own eyes. That perpahs I would roll or go towards more crit factor and attack. However, at this time I am only interested in Crit power lines.

You don't need to be on a road to self discovery. People with damage meters already min-maxed every class, just read a guide. Even without a dps meter, its easy to do your own math and determine that crit power rolls on jewelry are trash.

While I appreciate your comment about dps meters, and your opinion on crit power. I am more interested in knowing where your crit power is at and how you achieved your crit power line to what ever number it is.

I do not use a dps meter at that. I do not care for those that do either. I prefer doing research versus looking at someone elses idealogy. Thank you again. Please stay in guideline to the first post.

Ideology is not the word you're looking for, but ok lol.

Anyway, Catatonic posted the numbers for every correctly-rolled dps class gear set, except for dyads, which add another .2ish total, and Berserkers, who have nothing better to roll than a 0.3 crit line on VM. Someone else posted tank numbrs. /thread
Buffing old classes to be FotM in between new op classes seems like BHS' new way of keeping people playing and regearing and reoutfitting new characters. Gunner and Slayer seem to be next in line for serious buffs, and there isn't going to be another new class for a long time after Pole Dancer, so I think its a pretty reasonable assumption both of them will get big buffs in the next year.
Up there in the stickies is a thread from EME about it.
Slayer will be buffed to be a FotM top tier class eventually, until then you might as well give up hope of it being good or BHS bothering to fix desyncs or hitbox issues.

Ronin makes no sense because the inspiration is clearly not Japan, naginatas were not mentioned in dev notes while Chinese and Korean glaive weapons were. Impaler and Dragoon (as in FF) make no sense because its all about slashing rather than stabbing. Glaiver just sounds stupid, but EME is allergic to multi-word names, so that's probably what we'll get.
Putting it in the token shop would be nice, although I don't think you'll miss your chance forever when HH goes away. Pretty sure HH is coming back at some point during the next content patch.

An opportunity get people to lock themselves out of selling awakened gear means more potential cash for BHS. Plus it's guild-focused content in a game where all other big guild activities are pretty much dead. Probably stick around for a few seasons as a "bonus" top level endgame activity that isn't always active like Dreadspire was.
I feel you but femani aren't popular enough for BHS to put any extra effort into a costume. So few of them left, its kinda amazing they get any costumes other than reskins.

it acts as a cleansing brooch, and doesn't share cd with the rare/superior cleansing brooch. having two available cleanses is very nice to have in case of emergencies, and healers may or may not be able to afford a qf just like anyone else

I didn't know it was a separate cd on the cleanse. I suppose that's something but it doesn't seem like nearly the same level of value as it is for dps and tank classes. I would feel guilty taking it on a healer class, but to each their own I guess.
For what purpose would they roll on it? Just to show it off? It's a pointless piece of loot for healers, and not every dps and tank can afford a quatrefoil, so it's a potentially huge upgrade for them. Especially considering HH probably won't be around long enough for everybody to get one, I can't think of a justifiable reason for a healer to roll on it. Obviously, they were in the party and they can roll if they want to, but since it's untradeable they really shouldn't.

I find this interesting. What makes a healer less entitled to roll than another class?

It doesn't do much for them, so they're just stealing a useful upgrade from a class that gets much more out of it. Seems obvious to me. If it were tradeable and people didn't want to sell-and-split, then of course everyone would have equal claim for greed purposes.

When Lunar Dancer comes out there will be a little wheel icon you can put wherever for edge. You can see it in videos of ktera players. Until then, you're going to have to make do with what we have now. EME isn't going to speed up their update schedule just for this issue.

See, I understand where youre all coming from but like, can we not do this please lol? I'm super tired of EME doing an 'exclusive' event and then everyone who didnt get theirs is super upset about it and then cries and cries until its no longer exclusive. I understand its fun and cool to get rare items but It's kind of annoying for the older players to not ever get exclusive items.

It's also kind of annoying for older players who have played on and off since launch who have plenty of time and gold to get other crap to be unable to access one of the few decent-looking back slot items because we didn't play during a particular month. Maybe you could leave it exclusive for a year or something, but anything that isn't a prestige item like Smoulder should just be available to everyone eventually, in one shop or another.

Moonslayer, cuz moon light skill + slayer

Does not actually play like Slayer.

Something ending in -er would match up with everybody else (assuming we ignore Ninja)
More importantly, add Sundowner Beach Hats to the bill shop. All other hats tremble before its majesty.
At least we can now buy kinda overpriced strong bravery with them on alts? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
the only broken thing about the class is converting traverse into attack speed... i never had issue on my warrior as far as attack speed is concerned...
how about adding this buff to class who truly needs it... do i need to mention which class that is ??

Ninja, obviously.
Race bonuses don't really matter so much. Animation speeds differ slightly with each race/class combo (castanic female and elin have fastest animations for warrior, for example) but even then it really doesn't make enough difference for most people to care. Just play what you like.

Complainers still wrong? Hello?

You've just been proven that it exists in KTERA. You never mentioned about the obtainable method. Your primary purpose of this thread to show "proof" which it has.

So now you can be quiet. : /

My point was that the people complaining were actually saying that regular bravery was 30 min cd in ktera and we should get that too, which is not the case. I've not seen anybody talk about an event one until the response in this thread (and we just happened to get the stronger one today too). Regardless, the point is now moot since we are getting access to stronger ones.

This is from old ss, but it says Bravery II with 15 min cooldown exists.

Yes, the regular bravery from KTERA's weekly bonus is exactly same as ours. The source you can earn this Bravery II is ;

1. PC cafe : you can use 10 per a day when you play in pc cafe (but cant bring them to your inven, only available while playing in pc cafe)
2. Calneder reward
3. Open world-farming event (Like Fat santa event that we got last month)
4. Temp. Serverdown compenstaion : Whenever KTERA server is down by any reason other than scheduled maintanence, BHS gives all users a gift box that contains Bravery II (normally 5x) and other stuff
a2ebc3dfec.png

This is an example that gave out on Dec 22nd, 2016. It gives ;

Bravery II (15min cd) x5
Health potion x5
Divine infusion x5
Strongbox Key x5
Personal premium alkahest x16
Blessed Enigmatic scroll x1
Noctenium Infussion x 500

As I remember,,KTERA users got this..almost every 2 months, basically whenever their server crashed or there is a emmergency server down.
Thank you for the informative response. So the complainers were still pretty much wrong, with it being a different event item, but at least all the whining got us the good ones lol.
Are you ever going to get banned or will they just ignore you until you give up?
I constantly see people asking for bravery pot to be 30 min cd, which we all want of course, but their reasoning is that ktera "already has this" and we are just getting screwed. However, the basic bravery potion you get 10x a week from vanguard is definitely 1 hour cooldown in ktera. So everybody please shut up or prove that the thing you want actually exists.

It is worth it to Behemoth gear the following scenarios.

1) If your gear is +12 and you dont plan on +15ing it.
2) If your gear can NOT be liberated anymore
3) If you dont resell your gear
4) You want the damage/defense increase and dont care about reselling your gear

In the following scenarios it is NOT worth to Behemoth gear.

1) If you mismatch your set bonus
2) If you plan to resell your gear. (note: it will not sell for very much next patch since mid tier gear will be just as strong as ambush just without and 5th roll. expect around 100-200K for weapon.)

How is guile 2 gonna be just as strong as +15 ambush? That doesn't make any sense.

Base attack is same. Ambush has extra line and +6% from the awakened lines tho

why everyone hates slayers?

Boring and clunky. Poor man's Warrior. Wouldn't inflict it upon my worst enemy.

Rather than delete slayers and gunners, they should revamp them as they are with the other one-low-tier classes ^^
I'm pretty sure there will be a slayer revamp at some point, but not so sure about gunners since they are considered "new"

I don't care about them being "bad" dps compared to others, I just think they feel clunky and boring and are a bad representation of the fluid, fun combat tera has to offer. Gunner in particular is really bad and would need huge changes to make it even a little bit fun to play.

Well in that case they shouldn't be removed if you just don't like their playstyle, that just means you shouldn't play them.

Yes, obviously. But I think they are so bad nobody should even have the option to play them by accident, when they could have picked a real class their first time. But let's just move on and let the thread continue as it was, okay? Really not worth derailing the thread from everybody's "RNG is bad as we all know" complaints.

In ktera, regular bravery pots (the weekly vanguard ones) are identical to ours. Same buff, same cooldown. Whatever thing you guys think you want, it's not "fixing" ours to be like the ones in ktera. Either you want the stronger one from EU somebody just posted, or something else idk.

I know that this will come too late but... Why don't make an event with "Double Daylies Reward Event".

I mean, you have 8 daylies (I think) and you get from doing BAM's, dungeons or gattering (is there something on vg related?), x gold, x vanguard credits, x fs.

With this event you will have 2x the rewards for daylies.

I dont's think that would break the economy being done a couple of days.

Daylies has already restrictions like you can't have more than 3 rewards from Tier 3 bam's, you can't spam high level dungeons like RMHM becuase elite can do 4 and normal accounts 2, with reset scrolls one more and a CD of 5 hours.

I will read your thoughts in this matter.
Uh, that is on every day.

Nope, ie, you get 20 t9 fs for killing 10 brutal basilisk with your daylies but if daylies get you double then it would be 40 tier 9 fs.

The only thing you got double right now with elite is vanguard credits, nothing more.

So an event like this can help those who need fs to enchant thier VM gears.

The rewards you see for credits/feedstock is doubled permanently by an event, without the incrase by EME it would be lowered. This was turned on since Ninja's release, I believe since people complained the rewards were too low. Originally it was a temporary event but anytime it ended they would turn it back on due to complaints. It also originally doubled the gold, but later it was changed to not impact the gold.

Then, EME does listen to complains but there are ppl who doesn't want to acept that fact.

xD.

Double rewards permanently from daylies and ppl are still crying for more gold, for more fs and other things.

xD.

Well, when you double zero, you're still at zero. Awakening costs a couple thousand up front, with another couple hundred per attempt on a system with no cap to failure, meaning multiple hundred attempts with the low success rate isn't exactly abnormal. Even not factoring Awakening Enchant, going up to +12 on a weapon can exceed 2,000 feedstock.

Feedstock gains are balanced around the Korean way of progressing. This is why instances, even mid tier, reward lower tier spellbinds, and why VM boxes reward an extremely small number of the lowest tier feedstock, 2 tiers lower than the gear the mats are for. A big chunk of feedstock people have used for a while now have mostly came from events, and not the actual game itself, and even then, T11 had still been over 30g/unit despite the "excessive" amount of "free" feedstock.

I did post my self that enchanting full imperator gear +15 cost me about 2 million gold on mats.

I think +15 shouldn't be for everyone, like HH.

Just now i count the tier 11 fs on broker and that amount were around 30k units plus tier 10 fs.

I sold more than 8k tier 11 fs this month, and have more than 3k on my inventory.

I don't think is a fs shortage but ppl wanting to have everything with the minimun effort.

I think m]ost people complaining just want to get their weapon to +15, they aren't crazy enough to enchant (or even make) a full set. But for people who don't already have loads of in-game wealth, the rng element can make the weapon alone crazy expensive, and feedstock is bottleneck.
Yes, having completed the Lunar Dancer ARG, I have found the cleverly hidden release date and localized class name. Not sure why EME announced it this way, because it leads to so many duplicate topic asking for information. Of course, I don't wanna ruin the fun for everyone else by revealing it to those who haven't completed all the puzzles yet. I will give you a hint that the one that looks like Caesar-shifted morse code is in fact something else entirely.

BHS is probably stringing EME along with promises of a revamped talent system to come globally Soon™ or maybe just ignoring EME. We've been complaining about it forever and asking for minor changes or just a [filtered] global power buff to help compensate for how much worse all our classes are, with no results, so don't get your hopes up.

I have both. The 2.0 buff overwrites the 1.5 crit buff. If the 2.0 buff is active and the 1.5 crit activates, then you get an error telling you a more powerful buff is active. The blue or 1.5 crit dragon is more expensive than the royal dragon if you buy the tokens. Ironically, the 1.5 crit dragon is more rare and expensive than the royal dragon.

So the 1.5 can activate separately and give you its buff while 2.0 is not active?

Clicking on it hardly takes more time than clicking a key on your keyboard when you're used to clicking it, especially considering your cursor is already up when you res anyways. I don't understand why people are against something that doesn't impacts them, it's not the end of the world if they moved the scroll to the other side when you aren't even using the bar and wouldn't notice it.

Fair enough. I also forget some people actually press skills using their keyboard sometimes instead of using a proper mmo mouse, so I didn't consider that you might have to reach pretty far for your keybind.

put nostrum on hotkey, problem solved. it's way easier and faster to use hotkey anyway than pressing alt and stand still to use nostrum. that can get you killed easily.
the problem with that is that if you use cooldown notices, hotkeying the nostrum causes your game to freeze for a split second. it's been that way since it was in charm form and hasn't been addressed

Since they aren't bankable, there's a pretty good chance that they are actually worth nothing to the player, compared to all the other rewards which have value no matter what.

Ambush mats can at least be banked, other prizes can be sold. Scales can't even be banked, so you have to continue to grind them out for ages until you get 50, and then most likely get a claw for your trouble. IF you get the book it can be banked, but you probably won't. If scales were bankabale I would have no problem with them as a bonus.
But really, having those two extra rows are nice. Now I carry 800 HP/MP potions instead of 400, which tends to run out quite fast as i have to chug down MP potions. Then again, I filled an entire pet bank tab with Potions and other consumables too.
Is the upcoming circlet proc rate high enough to fix Lancer MP woes?

considering you need 150/500 wins for the respective bg cheevos, that's plenty of time to get that many when 90% of the leftover pvp community only queues whatever is double credits nowadays

not sure why you would need 400 scales when you can get a dragon with 50 though

And lots of ppl are just playing bgs on alts and will never get close to enough claws for one attempt. Waste of a reward for many ppl.

You could get one with 50, but you probably won't. RNG gonna rng.

With the new special noct coming out tryhards with elite would still need the real thing to craft those anyway, so economy would probably be fine.
I get that people are frustrated, but what do you expect EME to do? Clearly they don't have much power in the relationship with BHS, and most of the core problems are bigger than EME can change. Roller coaster class balance, poor optimization, lack of content, +15 BiS grind, dead/unrewarding PvP; these are the things which drive players away, and EME doesn't have the power to change them.

More events would be nice, better customer service could help, etc. But I suspect it all comes from declining income, from a declining playerbase, which is pretty common in MMOs and in this case mostly BHS' fault for the way they structure the endgame and content updates and their reluctance to spend the money needed to fix the game. EME could do some things better, and I'm curious to know why they don't (understaffed? don't understand our complaints?) but its all treating the symptoms, not the disease. If the game is dying, blame BHS.

You think you want it but you don't.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing. I think I want to do mchm again in the appropriate gear, but I would probably just be disgusted by how different warrior feels.
1. Upon hitting lvl65, you're gifted Idoneal gear. "progressing" to Slaughter (Tier 9) is very easy, so I wouldnt call it a gap. You either run the lvl65 entry dungeons and get Slaughter dropped or guaranteed gifted (It's a quest) or you're going to IoD and kill weak Basilisks for tokens. Besides that, you're gifted T9 enchantment material watever you do.

Exactly, I have no idea what gap op is talking about.

- Elite mount: Replace the current one for a Flying mount, with buffs and everything. One of the Flying Lions would be ok i suppose.
I think this is a good idea. What's the point of having flying available in older zones if most players never get a flying mount until the freebie at 65? Perhaps EME has metrics that show they make a lot of money from first-timers buying flying mounts on their way to 65, but i doubt it. If its not a big source of income, they should add it to elite status to encourage ppl to sub and help people enjoy 1-65 more (and maybe a few more actually make it to the endgame).

Why is it that so many topics are created by people with a shaky grasp of English? Is it a weird [filtered] posting trend or do we genuinely have that many players for whom English is not a native tongue that really need to know something? It also seems to be people that ask questions that casual players who follow the news posts or even occasional visitors to the forums can answer for themselves by now.

Not trying to be disrespectful, I'm genuinely curious.

edit - also any news on upgrading hardware aka servers?

If you're talking about random lag problems people have been experiencing recently, I thought that was more of a problem with the middlemen than the servers?

Also it seems strange we haven't heard a word of Warrior update yet, which came long before this dungeon, not to mention Glaiver launching at the same time. Are we getting circlets with the dungeon too? I guess time (and patch notes) will tell.
In theory, they could just make a global buff (which cannot be removed and applies on login) to other regions that incorporates the most important buffs for each class. Every class gets a few extra power or w/e, and more specific stuff, like Ninja combo attacks generate extra chi, Skyfall and Burning Heart both get cd on crit or just flat cd buff. It would have to take into consideration which talents actually truly matter for each class, just ignore the rest.

Someone like Loriri, who knows a lot about ktera and ppl who play endgame there could easily tell EME which stuff to put in. But it would require a bunch of extra work from EME and BHS, and extra testing. Honestly it seems like it would be pretty hard for EME to justify the time and resources to BHS when international players are still clearing content just fine and they clearly half-[filtered] the class balance anyway.

Imbalance is also asked for by the community anyways. Bias gets in the way, so even if classes were balanced, there would still be complaints since x class would have something that y doesn't have.
As a Warrior player I am secretly stoked my class is getting an edge over the competition because our talents are pretty bad anyway. I know this is entirely irrational considering PVE is co-op lol.

As a Ninja player i am pretty salty about not getting Ninja talents which enable an somewhat different, slightly better, possibly more boring playstyle to at least try out.
It's not a shorter total enrage time. Boss enrages after every 10% it takes unenraged, right? If you wait for the "natural" at 90% and then force enrage immediately after that ends, you still have to wait 10% again for the free third enrage, right? When third enrage starts you've had 20% downtime with no enrage and third enrage is starting. If you go for infuriate immediately, then wait 10% to get another natural, then wait another 10% to get a second natural, you've had 20% downtime with no enrage, and third enrage is starting. Results are exactly the same, except Infuriate has less time left on its CD.

Unless there is something I'm missing here, I don't see any reason to wait unless you have classes that wanna build resources before the first enrage (ninja, gunner, glaive skank) and you think the fight will be long enough for infuriate to be used twice either way.
Fake video, but I could see the rumored MMO BHS and EME are bringing to console being tera. It has action combat, which would appeal to console players more than most tab-target, is pretty, is free, could be optimized if they gave a [filtered]. It could work. Not holding my breath.

Wait until the Boss HP bar starts flashing red. That's the best time to enrage.

Solid advice. Also if you are a warrior, you should stance change and enrage at the same time as the tank does for double enrage!
The actual button sequence to pull off these combos is unusually complex, especially considering its a new class, so i hope they just nerf the damage across the board a bit, instead of nerfing the skills and glyphs that enable this rotation. Also consider this guy has BiS gear for every slot and probably a gazillion talent points to upgrade with too. I wonder if the talents are essential like slayer or just meh like warrior.
You are using a third party software that could get you banned anytime EME feels like changing their stance to be less tolerant. If you're going to do that, wouldn't it just be common sense not to go advertising it everywhere?

And like others have said, what's the point of posting ims results anyway? Yes, if you are a decent player you probably put your ims party to shame. Good for you. No point in shoving it in their faces. It might inspire a few of them to up their game, but mostly it will just annoy or embarrass people. It's not worth that just so you can show off.
They should have just made it 30 feedstock for each and guaranteed.
Change it to everlasting mobstopper.
There are very few goo back slot items and unity stole is one of the most versatile. I say bring it back.
I literally just finished +15ing my weapons this morning. [filtered] this game.

We've known for weeks that treeshark was promising some kinda of awakened enchanting event. If you were too impatient to wait, its hard to have much sympathy.
Leather healer that heals better than Priest and has more dps than mystic incoming. After that they can just delete all the old classes and you can still have a full party of 5 unique classes.
Unless Korean lancers raise a big enough stink about it or BHS randomly decides to throw PvP lancers a bone, nothing will change. I wish you poor souls luck.
Moves that give you invincibility during their animation. For Warrior this means Roll, Death from Above (until you land) and Backstab.
Combative Strike combos into Rain of Blows but you have to do it manually (so does Pounce, but Pounce is too awful to use)
Blade Draw at lvl 28 opens up a lot of comobs
Leaping Strike is garbage in pve so dont worry about it

Warrior isn't a real class until you get Blade Draw, and even then its kind of a joke until you get Scythe.

No need for speculation, warriors are bad dps compared to Reaper/Brawler/Gunner/Ninja. Even after the buffs in Ktera which puts everyone on a more level playing field, still pretty much the lowest dps of all, lower even than archer who can provide the same debuff we do.

Its not like you cant clear content with it or anything, but Warrior is not in the best spot. Still way more fun to play than Reaper IMO. Also DS Uppers is not relevant to 99% of the playerbase so I wouldn't bring that into the argument.

veliks mark only affects the archer, does not debuff for everyone. and i main warrior, my blade draw hits for 1-2 mil and resets ALOT, has 50% chance to reset CD, and my scythe hits for 3-7mil depending on the boss, and i am not counting stupid dmg like kerkion. but i am in starfall. i guarantee you played right, wars are not lacking in the dps department

Yeah I'm a starfall warrior main too, and I know how to play my class. I've seen meter numbers for plenty of runs of all different compositions (they are easily available online on a certain website). Its not close. When both players are doing a good job, no old class is close to the new classes except for slayer. I'm not saying warrior is unplayable or anything, but our dps is pretty low compared to the new classes. It matters to some people, which is why i bring it up. Future balance changes will help somewhat but still leave warriors on the low end.

Also the archer debuff in question is the one on ensaring trap or w/e, which is not shared with traverse cut and is worth the same amount.

War dps is way behind. Squishiness is similar. War is way more fun to play.
Why was the event ended without fixing the underlying problem? EME is concerned about inflation from double gold drops?
Fair enough. I thought you were just a troll because some [filtered] who doesn't care about healers having to use sub par gear to get by rewards pops by to say "just don't ims" every time this discussion comes up.

Low damage so it is not a tank... woot what is a tank in the first place?

In current Tera, a tank is front DPS.

Tbh if a tank is just being a front dps, they're a [filtered] tank. Period. Tanking is keeping aggro, supporting your party(whether it be through additional dps or party support), and postioning. If we just wanted front dps we wouldn't bring a tank at all.

Keeping aggro basically just means do as much dps as you can and maybe shout, supporting your party just means dps from anyone but Lancer. Lets not count Infuriate as "supporting your party" since its just a skill you start the fight with and probably never use again. So tanking is front dps (with positioning).
