In the end I opened 7500 strongboxes(various types) and got 27 dragons.

And depending on how many alts you have, all of them can have a nice shiny dragon that can fly in Exodor. ;)

Don't remember what the Valkyon coins were called before the patch, but they had a completely different loot table than they do now. Where do we get the amplification augments now? Do they still randomly drop in GG? And were all these little changes we're encountering like the dailies in Exodor changed in the patch notes?

You just got to Exodor? You need to complete the entire questline before you can access the dailies then.

In highwatch if you have not done it yet, there is a quest to get a set of twistshard gear its a purple ? quest near the trade broker.

Does it still give you the gear? Last I checked it seemed to only give the glyphs.

It's sort of terrible that if it's really happening, no one believes EmE because that's how far the trust in them has fallen.

@RonLaw said:
People make more money very easy now. I remember when 20,000 gold was a lot of cash now you can get that in a couple hours.

You can get that from a couple hours of auto fishing and turning into the fishmonger + fish crates.

@Agneta said:
I see what you are talking about with the gold+emblem now. That's a lot of gold for my 5 toons... considering the scout gear is given for free for newly 65 people. So it's gonna cost about 100K gold to get my 5 toons (each) to get up to the level of my new 65 toon.... hehehe I MUST be missing something... right?

It's just an option really. If you level to 68 and become eligible for Azart gear, that is currently on the broker at a fraction of the cost of the HO upgrade. But gold is really easy to get these days too, you'd probably be able to farm the gold needed quicker than you can level all 5 of them to 68.

@Agneta said:
I'm still confused. I am a returning Founder and have been leveling up my army of toons to Apex and I have even made new toons and got them to 65. My last toon got 65 a few days ago and got a much simplified Apex quest and got Exodor Scout armor as well. This toons armor and wep blows away my other 6 level 65 toons who are just newly Apex and have gear that is about 50% less in terms of stats............. To me it seems like my 6 toons who are newly Apex but still level 65 got really screwed here? Am I missing something?

Your other six character did the simplified version of Apex or had you already done Apex on them a while back? If those are still in Twistshard or Frostmetal, you can use the gold/metamorphic emblem route to get them up to Heroic Oath +0 gear. It's better than Exodor Scout at +0.

I can't really justify this free elite thing we got, as the servers have been down so often one would miss out on a good chunk of this elite offering.
Sure the coin freeze is nice, but it doesn't make up for the fact we are missing out on the elite benefits every time the server goes down too.

Considering how long this has being going on + the various questionable in-game changes...
One would have to be brain damaged or a masochist to keep playing this crap.
Like myself.

We're masochists! That explains it. ;)

The servers are up, this has been an ongoing issue for weeks. Some of the population will get disconnected and then get stuck at server select for maybe 10 minutes or so when trying to log back in. I feel the powers that be don't have a fix for it, so most people who play at this time just sort of brace for it.

I see people asking about gearing their alts they have no intention of getting to 68 or higher in this thread. Which means leveling up Anni and Dark Light won't do them any good. They want them out of Frostmetal and Stormcry, but at what cost? The general cost in terms of gold to upgrade from Frostmetal to HO is about 70k, and I don't think everyone wants to spend that on their thousand and one alts. This is why having the option to access Exodor Scout would have been good in this case.

On another note, I saw a dark blue gear on another player today, Federation Supply Azart or something like that. It was for lvl 65, where did that come from?

I stopped doing instanced anything and was just working on upgrading my alts. Can't get anything else productive done when server is like this.

Are the login servers down right now again? I closed and re-opened them but can't seem to get back in.

People have very few characters they haven't done apex on as yet. Basically only the alts I still had in twistshard were left. But I do have a few lvl 66 characters sort of in limbo and still sporting Frostmetal that could use the Exodor Scout as an upgrade. I'm not sure if this was something that was overlooked, but we've been given base gear over and over again with new patches and stuff for returning players etc. I just fear the response on this will be crickets.

Maybe they are trying to crack down on fish botters and the shuffling characters offline every few hours is their master plan.

@noctred said:
Worst thing is the lack of feedback from EME tbh.

Not a single update from them on these forums, on their discord, or on their twitter (that I've seen). Like if you're having datacenter issues... fine. Just let people know what's going on.

Maybe a bunch of them have been furloughed like so many other people.

Well, I think this is the first crash since the coronavirus crisis began. So maybe we should consider ourselves lucky. Though I suspect this crash isn't linked to more people playing...

It seems to suggest that leveling to 70 was made easier but I don't see anything exactly stating that in those notes.

My download had been stuck at 4.59% for the last twenty minutes....

@Elinu1 said:
I got disconnected then couldn't log in after restarting game

Same thing happened to me, got disconnected and now I can't load the login screen.

I don't know why Kaiator never just randomly crashes, it's always Velika!

Really?

Anyone know where you get the permanent grow potions to make Elin's taller, and will it stop them from floating away while fighting in shallow water? I was going to make another Castanic valkyrie, but I think I saw Elins get special rewards for the event right?

@TrialMacameau said:
Then why they keep giving up patches that has these bugs ? I'd rather have them wait to release it rather than having us see these bugs and wait for a fix... cuz this is really stupid... Hence the IMPORTANCE of having a Test server for testing patches and find bugs that can be fixed before going live

Sounds like they knew they were going to get this bug, and it's nothing that a test server would help fix.

I am right now as of Sunday morning, January 12th. It's the same huge delay lag like the other day, but it doesn't appear to be lasting as long.

So which is it, was maintenance postponed or is it happening now? Is this issue only with Velika? It's the only one showing as down right now.

I think I didn't even notice the gold sink in this because I never had enough mats to keep trying. But with the log in event giving us feedstock like water, I just spent over 200k just to get two blue pieces to +10. Does anyone know when the log in event ends, cause I'll be screwed again with no mats when that happens.

@StonyGaze said:
Ok so i am in the right place then. I cant use the exodor bait there and i walked around to all the different places with water there. You can fish at the end where the big pool of water is correct?

Try going to Predator Territory and see if it lets you fish there. Then if you go right back to Dazzling Garden, your Exodor bait should now be highlighted.

@StonyGaze said:
So where is this mythical fishing spot? Go to the dazzling garden marked on map in the Irridian Wetlands cant fish...

There used to be a bug that if you had travel journaled that spot, even the Pillidium bait wouldn't work, but think they fixed in last patch. If you are by the area with the giant flowers and the glowing pools that don't really look like water, that's the right spot, just make sure you aren't so close to those shadow mobs.

@TheCatalyst said:
Eh, just ask eme to continue the celestial scale event till january next year.
Its not like we have anything else to do in the game.

I did like the event, but my goal was to get the character I had max level smelting on to 68 so I could make the higher level fish crates. I had been burning myself out getting the scales from the dungeons and then they lowered the exp rate for leveling to 70 right in the middle of the event.

But the damage had already been done, I was burned out and didn't want to do it on anymore characters. If the event was extended then perhaps I'd feel like leveling another alt at some point.

@Fainall said:
I just want to say thank youuuuuuuuuuuu! Now I can level all my alts! <3

You know what was really awesome, being 14% into level 69 and logging on after patch and suddenly being level 70. I haven't looked at all my characters yet, but I had 120% into lvl 66 on my archer too.

i found that on the official tera korea homepage but cant read it . for me it looks like its actually already confirmed

am i the only one that noticed bunny ears and fox tail on that pic?

I also notice she has green eyes

I might be dating myself here but, a girl with green eyes? Big Trouble in Little China, anybody?

The news post about this event gave the impression that you had two options of getting from 65 to 68. Basically you log in and do at least one VG and collect the scales from that or you do dungeons and get scales that way. But from what I'm hearing in this post, it will be impossible to get from 65 to 68 with the log-in scales alone?

I understand the idea behind it to make you play the game, thus the dungeons. I was thinking there needed to be a quicker method to 65, but maybe this one is just a test before they can figure out what will work better.

@TJKat said:
Okay, now that I've gone and looked at the map, why can't you get there with the portals? I've done it with no issue. You just use the North portal on Kerozen Isle.

I will test it again, I just don't remember it working for me having tried it twice. One other question, anyone having issues with your bait not working in Dazzling Garden? The premium and Exodor bait are not highlighted. It seems to happen when you travel journal in to the fishing spot.

@TJKat said:
Have you tried flying to it?

Is that really the only way? Do all mounts have enough air time to make that trip?

Does anyone know how to get to Cloudlake Island Fishery? I can only see it on the map when I'm in Iridian Wetlands. But the Azart teleport takes me to Kerozen Isle. And the map for Verrak Fortress shows up when I get there, and Cloudlake is no longer on the map. I'm very confused. What am I missing?

I don't know if the secret fish pond in Exodor Farmlands is accessible without flying mount, which you need those elixirs for too. I have it travel journaled, but the first time I found it, I was in flight.

You should be able to fish in Iridian Wetlands though, the secret fish pond is even listed on the map as Predator Territory. Just head there and look for the pond that looks like it's filed with sewage.

But now I have another problem. I had hit the auto log in button, and now it doesn't give me the option to switch to my other account. I'm so tired of it all!

If you click on the Krafton icon in the top-left corner, you'll find the log out option. Then you can switch accounts.

Well thank God for Counterpoint. I must have got the new support guy on the job who suggested that I switch emails to prevent my account from auto logging in, which didn't work of course. Oi, now to switch emails back.

But now I have another problem. I had hit the auto log in button, and now it doesn't give me the option to switch to my other account. I'm so tired of it all!

Read what the quest is asking you to do? Is it actually saying kill X amount of mobs or collect an item from them? Like say the Fennic Fur. That would be why you don't see updates for every kill, because the collect items are random.

I had the new launcher install in the Client subfolder and it doesn't work, the launcher won't even boot up, it'll just show the icon at the bottom of my desktop, and then it goes away and nothing happens. Seriously, what was wrong with the old launcher that we had to be forced to a new launcher that's apparently worse than the old one?

Sorry, don't install the new launcher inside the client folder, but when it asks you to locate your existing TERA install, that's when you select the Client folder. This is after you install the launcher in some other folder.

@Concepcion30 said:
I don't know if I should wait for support to get back to me or just reinstall the game. The heading goes, Games, En Masse Entertainment, Launcher, Tera. When you click on Tera the expand button is greyed out, there is no client under there. Sorry I can't post the screen shot to show you.

This suggests that most likely TERA is installed somewhere else on your PC, but I'm not sure where. You could try doing a file system search for TL.exe to try to find it.

I had to reinstall, a search for TL.exe found nothing. I don't know what happened, I'd been playing the game fine yesterday morning. Then come afternoon when they forced the new launcher on everyone, game vanished. Oh well, guess I only missed out on completing the second half of my dailies. And now I have to turn off sound and all the other crap that is suddenly turned on again.

I get the feeling there are a bunch of people not playing Tera tonight because of this launcher business. =/

I don't know where my Tera is installed, there is no client folder drop down box. Unless it got overwritten by mistake I don't know. The only thing I could find in a search was an EmE diagnostic folder. Does that mean I have to reinstall? =/

How did you originally install the game? Was it through the website or was it through Steam?

I don't have steam, so the website.

This is happening to me, but I have a folder that says En Masse Entertainment, the sub folders say Launcher and Tera. I have no other Tera folders so I can't find a drop down box that says Client.

Was everyone suddenly forced to switch over to the Enmasse launcher today?

@5WG9CLR9R4 said:
I've bought gold from a site several times in the past. No issues with scams or anything. But I received an email from EME telling me to cut the sh-t...so I stopped :/ lol

I honestly though that since they didn't care about how their game runs, they prob didn't care about gold purchasing.
They are definitely still on it!

Why would you line those people's pockets? Be lucky they didn't scam you, but make no mistake that what they are doing is a still a scam.

What seems to drop a lot is that green armor, I just break them all down in the duranium ore. There's at least 70 broker tabs of the stuff on Velika, still going for around 2k gold a piece, I expect that price to drop, the green ones seem to just be fodder really.

I just opened the dailies needed to earn tokens to buy the bait last night. But I did test fishing in Exodor with popo bait at the Predator Territory fishing spot, and it worked, I fished two BaFs and a tier 9 fish.

I haven't seen any real bams except for those ones that look like bams but are meant to be soloed for the quests. Has any one grouped up to check to see if they work like IoD bams giving only one person credit at a time, or can you group up and everyone gets credit for each kill?

Anyone who levels new alts and plans to do the lvl 65 fishing quests on them probably already has all three rods, like I do. The prerequisite for at least a couple of the NPCs requires you to fish some low grade fish. So, it's handy to keep the lower level rods, plus you get an achievement for making the three different kinds.

@SageWindu said:
As far as that's concerned, maybe it could do like Monster Hunter World and introduce a "cloak" of some kind that makes you invisible to enemies. Maybe turn that one potion from the FoA storyline into a permanent feature?

Make it so that you can't use it in dungeons or PvP (or have it so that combat immediately breaks it) and there it is.

This is such an old MMO idea that's been around for so long, but Tera is like, nah. Invisible potions lets you travel to other areas without pulling a train on other people that might be hunting there. Just yesterday on the new island, someone pulled a bunch of mobs through me while I was killing one and they added on as I was using an aoe attack. If that person had an invisible potion, that wouldn't have happened.

I had just gotten my first character to 68 during the leveling event too. So while I can participate in the new zones, I do feel for those under level 68 that still have a grind ahead of them before they can get there. The whole grind to 70 without cheating (no fish botting) probably did kill the game for a lot of people. I just never cared enough to get 70 because there was no draw before this patch to do so.

I do see one or two people here and there in the new zones, but really we should be tripping over people at all hours given how new the patch is.

@39HATFDXLY said:
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.

You could have certainly bought one for a million gold and saved on the keys if that's the case.

It is strange, this is not what I considered to be a major patch, yet we'll be lucky if servers are up by 6pm eastern, which is terrible for those on the east coast that want to get anything done today.

Calm down people! Everyone knows that when Eme promises 3 hours of maintenance, Eme really meant 9 hours. They work according to Martian time. :s By the way, all this time for three minor modifications and AGAIN "strongboxkeys event" Omg. :s

Anyone know what the jackpots will be? Wondering if to sell my keys or use.

Good evening,

Some strange: The server Velika - PC is down tonight, yet the maintenance is over for several hours already, only the console servers are in ON
Someone has an answer?

Thx you

Remember to always check the maintenance thread to see if it was extended. Which it was for two additional hours.

In the past (pretty accurate 2 years ago), it was uncommon drop easily to obtain 100 in few tries because the bams drop 10 per stack.

Im sorry to the new players.

This. I have several stacks in the bank too. I haven't seen too much from the new costumes that I like either, so they're just sitting there.

I just don't use the elite mount anymore. Which is a shame, 'cause that's part of the reason I have Elite in the first place.

@G5E44TWPY9 said:

It's up now.

LoL, the server down icon switched to 'under maintenance' for Velika.

Can't get back in. What did you do? j/k

Looks like fishing may be reset again. Lots of fishing today.

Sometimes if the server went down too many times then the fishing turn ins won't reset until the next day.

Well, they do reset, but then, the next reset is delayed by a day. Seen that before.

That's what I meant. One day I managed 2 or 3 turns ins due to server instability, and it didn't reset again after that even when the servers went down again until the next day's reset time.

It's patch day that's for sure.

I've done this quest on several alts but never got a scroll to take me past Frostmetal +3, what is the final step to give you +4?

That's why I never downloaded the new launcher, cause I suspected I'd have problems too. And what they were giving you to entice you was a bunch of junk anyways.

Seems a strange time of day for it, the day the before maintenance.

It is allowed! Depending on how many accounts you have it might lock you out for a 24 hour waiting period tho. I dont remember the number you have to hit. One extra account should be fine

And actually if more people had done this rather than cram twenty characters on one account, I think when the last server merge happened, there wouldn't have been as much deleting of max level characters going around. I mean honestly, you think EmE will complain if you buy elite on more than one account?
How many tokens is it possible to get in one day per characters? Anybody checked all the events, I've only noticed 5.
It is seriously annoying, and it started happening maybe what, 2 patches ago? What did they break to cause such a simple thing to go awry. It better not be a 2 month fix.
Can the trading post forum be brought back. I think especially now that there is a broker fee, would be nice to know you have a buyer who wants your stuff already. And I personally don't understand Discord, but I imagine not everyone wants to go to some other site to trade either.

What I really want to know about the apex questline is why they changed Allen's name to Allendra? Why couldn't a woman be named Allen?

Exactly, she could be trans and decided to keep her name.

Anyways, back to the topic. I never noticed any one shot mechanics either. Unless your lag is really bad or you are allowing yourself to be hit multiple times without using a heal potion, then nothing should really kill you regardless of what class you're playing. The thing I worry about when starting that Elenea portion, is if the server is unstable. And if I disconnect in the middle of the quest then I have to start all over again. And yes, I hate wasting time to redo something just as much as the next person.
I would prefer a leveling event for everyone as well, or if it has to be brawlers, let it be all races that you can make a brawler on. i have never created a popo, been playing since 2012, not going to change now.

Well, at least it would have to be for all brawlers, because they can't run a leveling event that's isolated to a specific race + class. That being said, if they do prizes at certain level tiers, it's possible that it could include cosmetics for Popori if they decide to target it. Consumable prizes and the like would work though.

I thought last time parts of it was just specific to the Elin brawler? Was it just the cosmetics?
I went to check out the popori brawler on the EU version and i could get full +0FM in the first two days since the leveling event gave me full twistshard and the story quests giving me enough scrolls to enchant for free from +0Twistshard up to +0FM.. So i was also able eventually to get Apex and even actually do RKNM only after ten hours of total play time.

If you follow the quest line here after getting free guardian gear, it does the same thing to reward you with twistshard scrolls to basically enchant up to +9 twistshard for free. And doing Apex even allows your frostmetal weapon to +3 free. I was going to do this on all my alts to get some of them out of guardian and twistshard but haven't found the time to yet. But I do like that it was basically the fix when lvl 70 came around to get people a path to ilvl 439 and Apex quests.

I would prefer a leveling event for everyone as well, or if it has to be brawlers, let it be all races that you can make a brawler on. i have never created a popo, been playing since 2012, not going to change now.

Just out of curiosity, I decided to check around to the fisheries and go to different channels. It's super easy to tell who is using the script and who isn't. Everyone using the script pulls in fish after fish with barely any tugging time.

Crafting bait is not proof of someone cheating though. I craft bait when I run out and I am not cheating I just don't feel like wasting all my popo bait when I am going to be watching movies or something in the background, and people thinking having a high tier rod=cheating is just sad. Some people have been fishing since fishing was a thing. *shrugs*

I personally am not stereotyping, I'm not sure about anyone else. If I were I'd say something like, every white woman in suburbia likes to wear yoga pants.

So, is everyone fishing in Tera with a high level rod and making bait during fishing cheating? Of course not. I personally only have one processor on my main account, and she's the only one I haven't cleaned out enough inventory space to fish on yet. But I have a tier 8 rod and more than 50k angler tokens all from fishing the legit way. If people are attacking others because they think they are botting, they really shoudln't be. Cause like you said, there is no way for them to be 100% sure and it's not our job to police them.

Also:
1. Most have bright pink rods (top tier I gather).
2. Most have extremely expensive cosmetics on like dyeable Arin costumes.
3. Most have top HO gear and everything maxed.
4. Most are in well known and/or popular guilds who are no doubt sharing the information among members.
5. Most are level 70 or close to it.


Really, the only indicator is how fast they reel, and a lot of the times they have the processing icon over their heads, because sometimes they will randomly stop fishing to make more bait when they run out as the script sees fit. I notice they usually invest in at least a tier V whiskers as well. The first ones I saw were extremely under-geared characters in Misery and Schisma gear some 381 ilvl tops, clearly just alts, but somehow they were already level 70 with that kind of gear.

Them having the pink rods is simply because the script allows them to afford it, the angler tokens are key here, not only do they have enough to buy the rod, they can then convert the extra into gold by selling the fish crate 1 for 10 gold a piece, and then just buy the rest of the sell able mats (like the diamonds) they need for tier 8 rod. It's all geared towards making them as efficient in the botting as possible. It's hard to imagine someone did sit around and think this through and go, yea, let's do it.

Where I work I've experienced people trying to employ fraud tactics against the company. I always say that if these crooks even put half of their grey matter towards a good cause, we'd have world peace already. =/
It would seem, I just crashed.

I was waiting for someone to actually come and defend the botters, I guess you're it. I suppose someone who steals a candy bar shouldn't be sentenced to a maximum security prison. Because it's not like stealing is stealing, whether or not it's small potatoes like a candy bar or a big deal like a ponzi scheme.
i opened a topic time ago about a certain hack that allowed ppl to see field boss hp,

So the only thing I got was that you had opened a thread complaining about exploits that EmE has no power to fix, that would be on Krafton Bluehole . But your thread got flooded with people complaining about fishing bots which EmE does have the power to do something about.

But so that your bigger problem is not forgotten, you then brought your issues up in a thread that is about fishing bots, in so doing trying to belittle this issue as it is not big enough of a problem in your eyes. Um… what?!!

How is this not broken? Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean its right.

And I think that is the problem, too many are doing it. At any hour of the day, all you have to do is cycle through the various channels at the fishing spots and you'll find several fishing bots. Not all of them are gimply geared, I saw a level 70 with 460 ilvl botting. Someone like that has likely bought a lot of EMP in the past to get to that point. I don't expect EME to cut off a body part to spite themselves, not if some of these people are keeping their lights turned on.

I would never adopt 'if you can't beat em join em' shtick, because wrong is wrong.

Fishing is not hard at all. As others have said, once you understand the patterns (and it's a relatively simple pattern), each fish should only take approximately 30 secs if you're catching them manually, and that's with no upgrades whatsoever.

The OP is referring to the fact that the higher level your rod the longer it takes to reel and the stronger the fish pulls. Lower level rod fishing is faceroll really. And I personally think using fish salad is a waste unless you are planning to catch BaFs.

You probably have issues catching BaFs too, that was me when fishing first started, I couldn't catch them even with fish salad 'cause I hadn't learned how to reel properly. Once you do it will be a piece of cake. I have a tier 8 rod and reeling is definitely much slower than with a tier 5, but eventually you get used to it.

You can literally inspect someone and figure out whether they are a rookie or skilled in any end-game dungeon.

Also, you're talking about legit fishing; it's pretty well known that fishbots aren't constrained by any of these time limits.
You know that they don't fish instantly right? They still take (somewhat) the same amount of time a legit fisher takes but obviously without any effort, people using a more exploity bot fisher, which reduces the fishing time have been banned already since its hella obvious.

Why did I see 5 of them today then? They fish the normal time when they cast depending on their whiskers, but they are still instant reeling with high tier rods, that reduces the time drastically.
This is not entirely on topic but somewhat related..

I saw some days ago a level 70 character with minimal dungeon runs and not entirely excellent gear.. While i am still at level 69 after countless Ilvl450+ dungeon clears and thousands of Basilisk/Murderwings killed...


Great feeling.

Long live the fish bots.

Are you using 3rd party tools to figure out how many clears they have? *giggles*

Also just to clarify, with a max rod and whisker you get 0.3 to 0.5% per hour depending on your level (100-120m xp/hour) which is equal to like 100-120 basilisks and any decent player can farm 1000-1500 basilisks an hour, so saying people are going from 65 to 70 by just fishing is just dumb and unrealistic since it would take several weeks to get all the xp needed, assuming that you can literally afk fish 24/7

You're right, no one fishing legitimately is going to level that way in any reasonable amount of time. The two bots I noticed were level 70 with 410 and 386 ilvl, Misery and Schisma gear. They had tier 8 rods and would instant reel as soon as fish took the bait. And the icon next to their names indicated they were both maxed in processing, as you would see them stop fishing and start to make bait before rinsing and repeating.

The thing that shocked me is that they were in channel 2 of Vexatus Swamp fishery right at the main fishing spot. So they weren't even trying to hide, it's like they were flaunting the fact that they were cheating.
What I got from this thread is the reason for EmE's inaction against these cheaters (the fishing bots and the one's who can see the bosses HP) is because they are doing it clientside and EmE has no way to prove that the cheaters are indeed cheating?

Just one question, how did Gameforge manage to figure it out. From the thread in the link below I gathered they banned a lot of people that were fish botting. It is absolutely rampant here. I was sandwiched between two level 70 fishing bots earlier, both with tier 8 rods and 410 ilvl schisma and misery gear. One obvious red flag is that they practically instant reel which is not possible with a tier 8 rod. Why isn't evidence like that enough?

Does anyone know if the new launcher will affect how many accounts we have logged in at a time?...
I thought gear would factor into how quickly you are able to farm xp, but I saw a lvl 70 fishing with 410 ilvl and Misery gear, no lie.

Also, different fisheries have different fish.

I have never noticed that. I usually log out in Cutthroat Harbor, I check the fishmonger there to see what's on tap for that day. And no matter where he sends me, Serens Garden, Lake of Tears etc, the fishmonger will still take the same kind of fish. As an earlier post said, it changes every 24 hours, but the turn in appears to be the same for all fishmongers. It is only different from account to account. If you have more than one account you might notice what you need to fish that day may be different.
If all else fails has to be a healthy supply on the broker at least.
Thank you I was able to find him, and it's good to know that more will unlock as we level.
Are there any other dailies (green quests) other than the ones in Tria and Tralion that were released with this patch? Once you're finished those is the only thing (non dungeon) left to do just to kill mobs for XP? And speaking of which, the Total Recall quest, haven't been able to locate Halliarm. He is not where the map says he's supposed to be.

So they cut it back from 200 a day for the meta tokens ?

They even swapped the turn in merchant, that one only does fish crates now. And the 50 a day only gives gold, no more meta tokens. I'm sort of bummed about that too.
I guess talents are not an issue anymore, cause I had more than 700 SeS and was grateful to break them down and turn them into extra talents. It really never occurred to me to sell the battle solution which I also had over 8 thousand already in the bank. Honestly, having a firm supply of talents is more important to me.

ALSO of note, this "inflation" makes it MUCH easier for a new player to make money. I got bored and was looking through my bank, I had like 400 moongourds that I spent maybe an HOUR gathering when I was bored a few weeks ago and sold them for ~100k. Easy money for new players through gathering!
I sold a few stacks of 100 lein's dark rootbeer for ~50k each. Easy money for new players! Makes crafting worthwhile!

The economy would have STABILIZED to a MUCH more healthy place and given new players good income by doing stuff that isnt running top tier dungeons if you all gave it time.

You are pleased to have sold your moongourds for a far higher price than their value I get that. But does this boon outweigh the short term effect this inflation will have? I'd personally prefer to know my items sold and not simply cause a bunch of other players got a ton of extra gold in 24 hours.
Do you really think the economy would have fixed itself in any reasonable amount of time when people who received massive amounts of gold basically bought out the entire broker so they could then set prices at a ridiculous inflated amount for everyday items like talents, mounts and innerwear?
And apparently there is no way to just rollback the SeS exploit and the reset scroll prices alone? All exp and quests progress will be lost as well?

well im FURIOUS! i have 500 elite consumable boxes and they are worthless now.
(couldn't open them in time)

Same, and I could have opened mine but didn't cause I kept thinking they'd eventually change the contents and put something more worthwhile in there. At this point I would have simply preferred the consolation prize of millions of gold. =/
Has the reset time for fish daily turn ins been changed or is that also a bug?

So what is going to be in the boxes now as fillers to make you feel your getting stuff thru the box

You mean the elite boxes? Nothing. You get a canephora a bravery potion and a crafters cure, that's it. The adventure points replaced the reset scrolls and you get more of those if you're elite. So, nada.

Big oof for users that missed out prior to patch if they did not have any stocked up tbh

Would have been nice if someone had told me to open the 500 elite boxes I had in the bank, like yesterday. They now give no reset scrolls to sell for gold...
