Shoutout to everyone that afk'd with me on TR ;D

These are currently being planned for a release in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned.

You said January 18th on stream though....

He said that was the goal to get it into the store for everybody by then. It might still be the plan, but it's a goal.

"Goal" is a really cute name for dates we probably can't and won't keep, but just throwing it out there anyway

I mean, if you can't notice the party face-tanking until one member dies then glasses or even binoculars may be an option.

It's face tanking to do more damage by not avoiding mechanics to make the run faster.

Another assumption we could (and SHOULD) do is that the tanker is taking priority on the run, and the biggest chunk of locks and such go to the tanker.
You mean the 30m auto lock-ons that a braindead monkey could do? I find it more inexcusable for a mystic to have something other to do than pick a spot and roll face on keyboard between tf and VoC. It's LKn. Mystic would never even have to move
They're not wrong. You're not supposed to rely on motes as a healer. Ever. Healer "getting in trouble" is healer's fault alone

This is what I use. Heal thyself already heals enough as it is so there's no need to glyph it.
Wording may have been bad, but do not take out spirited mana charge. I was saying MP regen on resto burst is extremely bad as compared to mana charge which is percentage based, and not a flat number. Heal thyself glyph is useful when you're taking constant unavoidable damage

You should not ever roll healing on accessories. Ideally earrings should be 4/4 hp & endurance, rings 2/4 endurance, belt and brooch both hp%, and circlet/necklace 4 endurance. That *guide* is extremely outdated

Oh, I didn't realize it was outdated cause it says "Arsenal Patch update" thank you soo much for the info!
I'll re-roll ASAP.

It's outdated because... the person who made it doesn't really play anymore (and if they do they don't play priest anymore, but mystic) and hasn't played for a long time before coming back for Arsenal patch. What makes priest special is the ability to facetank a lot of attacks and mechanics, sometimes better than leather and metal classes, so every priest should monopolize on that by making themselves even more tankier. Priests already have a much higher and consistent healing output than mystics, and accessory rolls don't make much of a difference. They did when max health pools were below 100k

To further discredit the guide, it suggests self-heal as a must-have glyph. The VERY LAST time this was relevant was during FIHM for 1st and last boss 8/16% per 2 sec debuff. After that and currently it's a very useless glyph for PvE. Same with MP regen on restorative burst. It fills measly 250MP for full duration, and with MP pools being much higher now than when glyph was introduced, it's relic of the past. Percentage based like mana charge would be a different story.

There are plenty of other questionable (read: bad) suggestions there.
Did you not actually read the response? they did not say KC was the reason for the ban, they said it was investigated because someone reported the screenshot of KC and they found proof of cheating elsewhere on the account as a result. Just a case of bad luck for the person who got banned, but.. probably shouldn't have been cheating.

It literally says "in exploiting KC"...

I mean, a +9 SC Valk in KC using slaying is obviously a tryhard, right. Its not unheard of for someone like that to be using a proxy. I could be wrong of course. Just guessing.
It's wonderful having an all-you-can-eat scapegoat known as proxy. Slaying runs in low-end dungeons are done for speedy clears, not to measure e-peens. Because no one cares about KC epeen

That's what happens when event imagination is limited to (n)x drop. Currently it doesn't hurt to afk for few months until next (n)x drop hits because you'll basically make up for *lost* time in few hours/days of grinding low tier dungeons
They're note exactly new, they're CM for Closers as far as I know
Backcritting is the only form of doing any actual damage. On solo bosses the trick is to stay closer so you can get behind them faster during their animation lock. Depending on boss it can be easier or harder to do.

While in animation the bosses retain their back status they had immediately prior to start of the animation, so for example is the boss is doing a spinning attack, his "real back" you're supposed to be hitting is the same spot in which he started it, so you don't actually need to spin with him 1080 around the room. Forceful crystal is a very good indicator of this, as you can see the effect going off only when you're hitting the "real back"
So what's the surprising item?
All bosses have additional mechs
1 hour delay according to support page
Ignoring troll responses, the best time would be around noon to 4pm PST for BG of the day, and FWC post 4-5pm PST

FWC, as (almost) always, is the only one which has rewards. Even Corsair, its only competitor during some patches in terms of rewards, is behind right now. The favoritism is appalling.

And then you'll get clueless ignorants next patch saying "but FWC was popping before this patch!!!" if it somehow dies (i.e. gets "balanced" rewards) as if nothing happened. Yes, they truly believe the rewards are normal and not favoritism at all, just like they always did.

Disgusting.
With the current population, if there was no favoritism no BG would pop because ques would be too spread. Even power hours barely make them alive and only for a short time per day.
Confused..?
Gridiron has seriously outdated rewards and jackpot doesn't make it relevant. It doesn't even give gear exp
You can go back to Blade and Soul which has maintenance extensions in the middle of the day with absolutely no explanations while their other favorite region does not.

-Implying elite is worth because of braveries
-Doesn't know you get more strong braveries through normal means than elite

I too, love selective reading. Strong braveries are a part of it, not a whole.
Like what? HH? Dragon scales? Totes not worth solely for strong braveries

Bottom line: Adding strong braveries in vast amounts to weeky reward WOULD devalue them, especially when it's farmable on multiple characters easily.

Nah dude that's not how it should work. Plus you can get strong braveries through other means already!

Elite needs to be worth it.

@Digivolve
1. If they drop.
2. This is not about iod coins, its about dungeons.
3 lfg isn't shining for KC and SF that are fast.

My post was about fact that most part of gold comes from dungeons and even 8 of them will consume huge part of time with que/lfg anyway. If you happy with iod coins that's your choice.

1. They always drop. Always.
2. It's the most time conserving method if you're short on time to complete 8 vg a day.
3. Better run RG. Faster and more rewarding with insta que usually.

Apart from IoD vg giving a decent amount of gold themselves, tokens can be used to get titan's storm and earth, both going for around 500-700g at least on TR.

Dungeon VGs are them least of my gold income
Tera becomes p2w. There is literally no way to obtain gold on brokerage now.
If you don't make anything through broker then run ghillie and PoP and sell gems to merchant.

Only dailies and emp. Lets face up the fact that running 16 dungeons isn't easy as it needs time to complete, que to stay in ( if you aren't healer its longer) and scrolls to reset. Dungeon runs at this point feel like additional way to get gold, not primary.
You don't need 16 runs a day. 8 for each character is fine. I'm well off with doing it with only 2, sometimes 3 if I'm bored or have tim. 4 of those is PoP and 3 is top tier IoD. Last one can be bottom tier IoD if you're lazy.
All that left only stay in que and wait wait wait. No gold is not an aim and not main thing but what was done in this patch is really bad along with meh events.may be devs thought 600-700 gold per dung will encourage people will and get their piles of gold but they forgot about circumstances. At least such as silly high itlvl and que.
Don't que. Use LFG and make friends. Expecting a que to pop fast as a dps is not the brightest idea.

What i find absurd (more than many other things i consider absurd on this patch) is this:

85abbc3e0ed2da5dfe4c1a037c2e99a5.png

I mean, the patch just hit and servers are already dead? Either if i set up a LFG or I queue, I hardly find a party to run with, because I'm not in an active guild and i prefer to solo most things. And the worst thing is, w/o running HM dg's you can't get gear exp, and no mats to enchant, no gold as well. As a priest I hardly do other content, can't do IoD and I barely manage to do GG.
This is very descouraging and makes me wanna give up, which never happened before with any other patch.

No dps or tank likes to que healer-reliant dungeons. More so if they're HMs

It's sucks that one can't have an alt for each, or at least 2 crafting masteries

I have 4 crafting masteries and what I am trying to get with this thread is that you most likely will gear all your alts with stormcry before you get 50% upgrade success on a daylight accesory or frostmetal belt, that will cost you about 2.1m-3m gold worth in mats.

That's amazing. You can make 5-10k per alt per day just by doing Ghillie, IoD, and PoP since you have all the masteries.

Since you got 5k exp in the first week, it will take you just about 3-4 months to max it out. Surely you'll have those 2-3m gold you're talking about by then.

Now, you have your UNEQ FWC, Where are those tons of players that you people promised?

Bringing back uneq FWC and locking it behind a PvE grindwall is not what brings PvPers back, starting to think they took the idea from BnS 6v6. Previously mid tier gear was sufficient to not be stuck with trash equalized gear, when dreadnaught had PvP stats stapled on it - no one needed power hours. As it is now 448 ilvl will be out of majority of PvPers reach for a very long time.
ElinUsagi wrote: »

Tons of PvPers came back to the game because FWC is uneq.

Pumpedd wrote: »
The point of this patch is to make gear progression less of a btch but now you have to dedicate 4x more hours to finish gearing.

No you do not. You can still go take the old way and increase your chances by failing instead of farming exp. You don't have to grind one character only either. In fact it's easier if you don't.

What kind of privacy are they protecting ? some peoples might bring Law into the discussion, but doing some researches ANYONE can conclude : Posting names of an in-game character + Punishment, publicly has no legal defamation issues whatsoever, and this is why :

- The nature of the exploit prevent "False Positives" from occurring, and provide Data evidence that the banned player was Guilty.
- There is no relation to be proved between Defaming an in-game Name & a Person name.
- Defaming an in-game Character name cause no Monetary damages to the Person.

Other MMO companies can do it : Blizzard, Pearl Abyss, Ncsoft, Nexon, ... ect. All this companies work internationally, and obey the same laws. If Eme is truly sorry, then the MINIMUM that can be done, is publicly announce the names of those dealt with, and what kind of actions taken.

It's different. Dragon scale system is directly from BHS that was supposed to reward player effort, implemented in every region. Region-specific RNG lootbox and strongbox events are not.
