what happened to the hp/mp motes in ghillieglades and Pit ?
they were very useful
this lootbox gives way too much, there should be a different box for each set, dawn's guard, ironward and night watch.
i cant see anywhere what the bonus/rewards are ..i didn GL a lot today and still i dont see anything extra in my inventory
i cant find the spreadsheet that was on here but roughly how much gold does it take to go from guardian to +0sc wep ?
Too many times have i gone searching through the dressing room only to discover the item i was looking for was NOT there, however it was in game and available in the tera store.
whats the point of a dressing room then ?!
just throw every single wep skin, costume accessories , mount and pet in there regardless of date, because we all know items come back. Yes, even when eme says "last chance to get this item.. " etc
please stock the dressing room with every item.
another example: i want to buy a weapon skin off the broker but its not in the DR so i cannot preview it . im unable to find anyone with that skin on that class... isnt that what the dressing room is for ?

basically every store "update" so far has been a joke with little to now real change/improvement.
fed bill store gone, merged with FC store.
FC store had a few accessories added to it.
it's a change not an update.
if ur going to do something, do it well.
since today my game keeps crashing and closing by itself and i get the "fff ffff" error.
whats going on ?!

Stepstone Isle, not Serpentis Isle (different location).

Your guild can surrender the GvG or you can drop guild to avoid it. GvGs are available EVERYWHERE except for Velika.

yes i meant stepstone isle.
eme got rid of op geared players killing lowbies BUT its still possible in gvg..on serpant isl..and u cant fly..u cant port away..ur stuck..
so much for making a male brawler when u have guilds who have boom-feerders in them that do this.
so there ISNT lvl65 pvp on MT.
its a pretty big 'hole' in the new page design not to have something so basic as server status..
that's a mistake.
where is the server status to see if the servers are up..
they moved it but did they remove it?
love it how they are vague on "new" dg loot but they needed time for accuracy on patch notes.
any bad changes are usually generalized.

This event is really terrible. I've ran 4 HM contents and only got 1 key. Might as well just grind RG for better rewards.

Please EME just bring back the permanent double Vanguard. Do whatever event you want on top of that, even not so frequently are fine. We certainly don't need half baked events like this one or the BAM Massacre laggy event from last month to fill the calendar. The double Vanguard had been in NA for so long that it's perceived as a nerf by players when reverted back to base rate. Next week is the Male Brawler launch date, and we're only getting bonus leveling EXP from Vanguard. So what about those of us who want to do end game contents? Well, we got to wait for the following week to get decent rewards. For the past month I've seen more players leaving Tera than any particular month before. The removal of double Vanguard hurts the player base so much that is not even funny.

cuz you can get 1 key from LKHM, TRHM , CS and FW once time , per character ( aka you get 4 if you complete all the 4 vanguards rewards )

I think the biggest problem with this event is clearly that a lot of people didn't understand what the event actually was, and just thought it was some sort of farmable RNG drop/jackpot event, when it was a vanguard rewards event instead. (Maybe it's just because other recent events worked the other way?) I guess somehow it needs to be more obvious in how it's phrased... or over time people will learn to pay more attention to the event details.

the problem CLEARLY is that eme keep switching up the style of events and fail to clarify the specifics each time.
eme also seems to "forget" past feedback and backlash from the community.
i remember not that long ago there was an event where there was a"chance" for items to drop.. the event was very unpopular and was not a big hit.
now eme chose to do it again .
there is already rng with which 5 rewards will drop, there's no need or desire from the gaming cummunity for a " chance" at a drop.
eme needs a"remember this stuff" board !
so the key isnt like getting a dragon scale ? its not 100% ?
jeez when will they learn

Now if only someone had made a training run or the que would pop in ever...

all pvp players wanna do is kill lesser geared players with high ping. ( u actually want to pk lowbies but u cant, HA!)

and being a pvp only player is your choice. you chose not to take part in pve events.
browsed through the twitch but didnt see any code. did i miss it?
they should change the elite mount every month.
codes should be posted after the twitch streams or at least before they expire. you cant expect "us" to watch every single twitch or like every twitch idea. or announce at the start of the stream that there will be codes at least.
i didnt like the spotlight idea, i watched a small part of it then closed it and missed the code.
thats on me but still, be more open about codes, especially ones with great things like additional char slots!
HAAYAAKD43 wrote: »
doesnt seem very exciting.

The last one just gave a free character slot. That's pretty exciting.

when was that?
and the whole spotlight thing, i just dont get it.
doesnt seem very exciting.
correct me if im wrong but we're now 3 weeks along without twitch codes ... right ?

@Zoknahal how about you leave my daily & rep bonuses alone just cause you don't need them does not mean they do not help people who are smart enough to find a use for them. Only reason I pay for elite honestly, and for a mount elite should NOT be a flight suit or Dragon/Phoenix.

The only reason why someone would farm the old dailies, would be for the hats to be honest, hats that you can currently get through the fashion coupons, ever since they were introduced into the Federation Bill shop, and now since its going out of business, you can get them through the Fashion Coupons for the time being.

If you however are after the Black Panther mount, then elite would make it a lot faster to get because you need a specific item from each reputation vendor. But currently, its a 275 mount, and being realistic, with flying mounts around, and one you can get for free at lvl 65, no one would be interested in a ground mount with a 275 speed, only for the looks and maybe earning yourself some legacy item, which again, is not anymore, since the actual legacy version of that mount, had a 280 speed. I honestly do not see any use for the old jewelry that the old reputation merchants sell.

Elite has to have something attractive for players that wish to pay for it. Having outdated benefits that only work with outdated content, is not attractive for players seeking a QoL benefit for end game, such as doubling the rewards for Vanguards for being elite. In the long run, speaking from a business standpoint, EME would make more money by making elite more attractive to this specific part of the playerbase, rather than keeping it the way it is, and constantly getting threads like this to implore for a change on Elite.

FWIW I have been conducting user interviews and research on how I could better make Elite useful by focusing on multiple player types (such as brand new players, leveling players, PvP players, dungeon players, etc...) and coming up with lists of things that focus on each player type. Unfortunately, many of the things are tied to what I can get from existing items/buffs (requesting new features/items takes quite a bit of time) but I will be looking to do a relaunch of TERA Elite Status soon. In the meantime, I think the consumables box and elite gift box probably can use some updating, along with a new mount. Mount changes are relatively easy, though I'll dispel that we will be giving dragons or phoenix (or flight suits for that matter - that has multiple requirements and makes it really difficult to give out) but there's a plethora of other mounts. And I agree with an earlier post, they need refreshes more often than they are getting now.

i think almost everyone would LOVe toe go-kart mount..and i think it suits eing the elite mount becaus eu can only ever ge [filtered] rarely at certain events...but those events were long ago, it made everyone very happy..GO KART mounts would be an excellent choice! maybe starting form March already?
what's the deal with there ALWAYS being 1 bogus glyph or talisman ..
"reducses cooldown by 0.6 seconds" LOL ?

its time for a new elite mount plz.


Go karts!! Dragons !!! or flying suits.
elites are literally "renting" the mount each month, so go big or go home
its time for a new elite mount plz.
did eme forget to put in the patch notes section on the main page ?
its the most important thing...
i have a question, it says this for example for the event:
"2/19 – 2/20 : 30 TERA reward points
2/20 – 2/21 : 20 Item XP (50 total)"
does that mean u can get a maximum of 30 tera reward points on that day ? and the next day a maximum of 50 item xp ?
is that per claimed box?

because if its 30 and 50 maximum then wtf.
its time for new elite mounts tbh
the island of dawn vanguards are back to "normal" after the events ,HOWEVER they are in reality cut in half now.
in the past (cant remember exact details) there were issues with vgs and they were doubled to bring them back to "normal rates" and somehow eme forgot that fact.
they just seem too low hence the spiking talen prices on broker.
MT is down..during an event..again.. wow./
all hope is lost
is it working yet?
I don't get how you guys can let the weekly tera twitch stream just fade away, spacecats worked hard on it and grew the number of viewers and ur just going to let that go by sometimes doing the stream/code and sometimes not ?
it's dissapointing
i agree with OP. i want to be able to see my weaponskin while wearing a back piece..
apparently HAIR is more important since there's a freaking"upswept hairdo" option in the game. please..
this should be an easy request, lets make it happen1
i know there should be 2 builds; 1 for running with mystics, the other with priests.
i think its 3 power / 2 crit daylight pieces with power zyrks with a mystics
3 power /2 crit daylight set with keen zyrks with priests,

However, there is also the heavenbane rings to take into account and ive seen this setup:
heavenbane rings (power) with 2 crit earings (daylight) and a power daylight necklace. 3 power zyrks and 1 keen.
what's the BEST pve setup for gunners ?! and where does this setup fit into the first 2 i mentioned.
i've looked on esential mana and ive inspected a lot of gunners but i am still unsure.
please help if you can.
ty ;3
since the guardian patch, 9 times out of 10 when i open my launcher it takes forever to load up !
the "play" button stays greyed up and when i close it, it takes forever to close as well.

they selectively ignore our stuff. Not only this, but many older bug reports too. Makes me seriously doubt how useful it even is to post. Wonder if they ignore it just to not blatantly say "no" thinking it will have a negative impact or what, but I feel like a direct no would be less of a spit on our faces.

Just as an FYI, I have been passing along all Feedback I have come across ( forums, discord, in-game, reddit, etc.. ).

Unless something changes, I'll still have to refer to what was posted back in Early January by Spacecats.

where is this vanguard schedule then that spacecats spoke of ?
it would be A LOT easier to just put double vgs on all the same as its become the norm instead of making a schedule and trying to decide on times ot run x2 or x3 vg events without upsetting players and having forums flooded again.
take the easy way this time, its the best one
who cares about brawler now their dmg got nerfed hard!
'The skill damage increase of Powerlinked Counter is now 25%." it used to be 50% .
so what if it gets awakened.
"if it aint broke dont fix it" eme really should leave vgs alone, they are fine and everyone is happy.
they are unable to smoothly run events so double or triple vg events will be a mess.
leave the vgs as they are plz!
vanguards being cut in half ? why is the game anti gold...

no codes
and they are going to do random codes from now on so their may or may not be a code on week to week basis and the time to claim will change to
they say so people don't just come at end of twitch just for code and then share here but watch the twich as well

Then they need to be more engaging and entertaining. everyone the twitch is so timid and unsure of themselves, give us a front man/woman that we WANT to watch.
ofc we comes for codes because we get the info about patches etc beforehand from other players or ktera already.
there wasnt even anything on forums about the last twitch so they're off to a great start.
i hope they start putting some effort into things.
any code this week ?

man, people complain about everything.

because its so easy to complain about everything here. dont get complacent
And ppl lost keys ?

lost keys in what way ?
Jackpot is still on. I just opened about 200 boxes and got 4 jackpots myself (emblem chests, golden talents, and silver talents). We didn't extend because we forgot about it, it was because we decided to bump maintenance to Thursday instead of Tuesday due to other issues that needed addressing and didn't want 2 maintenance windows in the same week if we could stop it. Strongbox jackpot requires a maintenance to turn on and off. We updated the post and updated the launcher image as soon as we confirmed.

why not also make in game announcements? :P
they should honestly take total RNG out of this game, its so annoying and toxic and just put in a max number of enchant tries till its 100% so u either get lucky (yes with rng) or u end up paying the max amount.
then at least there's an end in sight.
im almost 100% sure it initially said till the 23rd, and now the event ends Jan 25tg.
if this is true why, eme , cant you just notify us of these changes?
i know this change was made due to pvp reasons and how much people cried,
but this skill has a very long animation, a VERY obvious animation and it can be interrupted so easily by almost anything it seems, even while you're up in the air!.
too many things are being nerfed because of pvp, the brawlers spinning suction skill, the valks dark herald i heard will get nerfed .

Maybe @seandynamite or @Halrath can come in and replace any of the Additives we collected.

hope so because we got them INSTEAD of usable loot..
bams died too fast. no announcements.
no fun
it shouldnt be too hard to change the elite mount each month. like amount calendar.
eme has so many things to update (properly ! ) that it doesnt look like they will ever be up to date on a lot of things.
if this event still has a chance to drop nothing , then eme hasnt learned anything from the previous miss-fire trnm event.
any event with" a chance to drop :" is a bad one
second TR event , still very boring and miner helmets, really?!
VG rewards and reputation are now doubled through 01/31 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

where's the calendar for triple vg reward times ? you guys mentioned it sometimes being triple ..knowing in advance helps
this is a problem only players understand.
that sounds amazing..tera na NEEDS that
can we work towards getting inner wear to dismantle into tokens ?
the price for blue and most gold is so low..people are stockpiling them in the bank..but it would be amazing if they could dismantle into entropic or meta tokens..any amount.
just a suggestion
you guys at eme really need to check these events and be online when they supposedly SHOULD stay on or turn on ...
it's unacceptable that you are making the same mistakes over and over again.
it's not unreasonable for us to ask that of you.
Spacecats wrote: »
Looking into this, but can anyone please confirm their loot for me with a screenshot or something? The event works a little differently now than it used to and I'm curious to know what people are actually seeing drop.

you could have told us this wasnt going to be the "usual" double drop BEFORE in advance, to manage player expectations ....
you guys run some great events..but never repeat them exaclty, why ?
the changes are never any good and "if it aint broke dont fix it" .
still no word from eme about ghillieglade?
whats amazing in all of this is that there is still NO official word from eme..about this.
is it on, isnt it on ..etc
how hard is it to clarify?!
im going to miss Friday because of work+ awful starting time of event.
thanks eme.
this event was to make up for past shortcomings not to start new ones.
let the event start today
UpperDown wrote: »
They meant "January 5 at 12 a.m. PST" as in today's midnight, hence event not on. You monkeys understand?

"Beginning Friday, January 5 at 12 a.m. PST through Sunday, January 7 at 11:59 p.m. PST,"
only eme can right down a clear END time for an event but a royal mess of a start time.
even if we understand when it starts its still such a badddddddddddddddddddddd time to start.
considering u cannot reset the dam dungeon.u get 2-3 entries and its over.
>Beginning Friday, January 5 at 12 a.m. PST
12 am is 0.00 of friday and already was for pst, no?

who picks that randoma$$ time anyways?! its just like the 3 hour cbb..
just do it maintenance time ffs.
eme make up for a fail with a fail. gg
i rushed home for nothing
im truely happy about this event, However you cannot reset ghillieglade so it's not much of a weekend event is it ? you do your runs on however many chars you have and then wait "24" hours till dg entires reset the next day...
dungeon double/triple drop weekends work because players can reset and almost continuously run them.
im not sure if you can reset pit of petrax.

Great news about triple vgs! i guess that will be the part of the weekend players use most :) .
i know they are not listed for THIS event, but they were in the last one.
its beside the point,i feel they should be able to reset
why is GG the exception to the rule ?
some people already did GG today and now cant run it when the event starts..unless the servers reboot
just saying that if ur doing the dg and you can clear it with less then 439 ilevel..at least you should get the vg as well.
439 seems a bit high..imo
i think the item level required for pit of petrax is a bit too high, its 439 ..and thats stormcry..when you can EASILY complete it in guardian..already ..
could you lower it to RG level ? @spacecats @seandynamite
its been done before for IoD bam vgs.
not questioning the rng..just the rng rates.
it feels like there';s been a ninja nerf to diamond drops in ghillieglade and pit of petrax..
they DO secretly nerf things like silver talen drop in RG ..its not crazy to assume theyd change other things.
i havent gotten a diamond in 2 weeks..and i run GG on 10 chars.
didnt eme learn anything from the ccb mistake.
there was no need to nerf silver talens..they are already hard enough to get.
i suggest eme start the paperwork on this unless they want another 25+ pages of "do things right!" .
i strongly dislike ninja nerfs, its so wrong.
star wars sucked so hard they should remake episode 8.
Disney did an "eme job" of it.
the hardest part is running those low level dgs 20-30 times, but with a friend and some music it's much easier.
Just an FYI, this topic was discussed in the end of today's stream. They said they're hoping to get a toggle, but BHS has to do it.

i watcheds that part of the stream and i have to just say..the 3 hour ccb didnt exist.. the 12 hour ccd DID already exist.. why in the world did they come up witha 3 hour ccb is the crazy sad part.
AND they said if he had put 12 hour ccb we would have asked for a week, we actually would have asked for a 1 month ccb..=continuous ccb duh!!! :P .

if you want propper feedback make a voting poll AND announce it in game as well, now i know there's always the argument of multiple voting HOWEVER what will be clear from a poll is that you will see which options there is NO interest for, which will at least eliminate options and stear eme in the direction of "logic land".
"Dear person who submitted a ticket about the achievements we broke with our Elite changes,

The majority of the forums voted in a poll and they've decided your request is stupid so tough [filtered].

Best regards,
Some EME GM"

(I'm sure there are some tickets they'd really like to give that response to...)

that actually raises a good point, what's more valid, forum polls/posts or support tickets? well the answer is simple: someone or a group that IS responsible at eme needs to make common sense decisions based on all the facts, so far those decisions have been the wrong ones .
we all know as players that there are some Do's and Dont's that we just know based on actual game play experience.

i cant help thinking about the "player council" that imo sounded like a step in the right direction. at least they could tell eme when things are stupid or actually make perfect sense to implement.
BTW, these 20+ pages are a bigger feedback to keep continuous ccb then anything eme got about removing it for 20 pts achievement.

why are elite CCBs only 3 hours ? and not 12 like the common ones.
u gave us 24 three hour ccbs instead of just 6 twelve hour ones.
opened like 35 starglow weapon loot boxes, nada. :( the dream is gone
ive never liked the low low % rates of lootboxes.
what happens after 1 month when the 3 loot boxes get taken out ?
if these are all thats new in the fed bill shop then realistically, the fed bill shop AND fashion coupon shop will NOT have been updated.
remove the stupid achievement, NOT the crystal bind.
if the continuous CB gets removed, it will show a total lack of game understanding on eme's part.
if it aint broke don't fix it.
Dec 14th is soooo far away.. even further away then November.
dressing room looks like it got reset. the icon sizes are huge!
WHEN will strong bravery potions be added to elite bar and goldboost removed?
im pretty sure spacecats promised this or another eme staff did like a year ago.
jeez you made us vite on which to update first.... now ur not updating but ur simply merging the two shops..why didnt you just say that fom the start and update both.
if the lootbox is the only new item then its NOT an update.
also january is NOT december.
why not get fashion coupons when you login from now on ?
why is there one update per MONTH ?!
fedbill shop
fashion coupons
(and ofcourse elite)
why do each of those need a whole month to update ?

i actually agree with the OP, tanks should be able to choose from ALL the races like healers, because those two classes are so vital.
I know this is the case for lancers already, but brawler seems more forgiving with higher ping and lower skill.
if eme doesnt deliver according to the rodmap then where's no point having it.
will the fed shop be updated tomorrow?

It's no bug, if you crit you only get the red dendrite, same goes for all lv 1 etchings.

i get the red dentrite from the crit but no etching.
im wasting titan's storms!
i thought the black friday sale would start at midnight but it did not, so what time do the sales switch to the next day ?
they need to really stop with the crystalbinds in these events. the lowest "prize" u should get should be gold talents.
event ended 2 hours early. cheap
EME if you cant even live up to your own posts and announcement times!
and plz dont say "the event started 2 hours early.' cause if you post the ending of an event and leave that time on the main page until the end without changing it then that unacceptable.
i was really enjoying this event, but i should have known id be disappointed in the end.

Ahh I see there was a problem with the settings. Sorry about this guys I'll make an in-game announcement and extend this feature of the rewards event until 11 a.m. Tuesday (Nov 21).

this happen almost every single time. why dont you guys at eme double triple check your work? or at least test it.its your respectability.
Catservant wrote: »
Agree with the sentiment, but point of order. This weekend has nothing to do with the re-do of the TRNM/HM event. THAT is still to be announced.

you are right, however my point was that after eme realised their trnm event was not done well and saying themselves that they would re-do it are again setting up an event which could potentially also not go as planned.
I think it's most likely because most of the TERA crew is heading to South Korea for G-STAR this weekend, so probably the people left aren't sure the fine details of other things. (This post was by Geletron, and he doesn't usually post event stuff.) But anyway, hopefully they can post a clarification of the rest once Spacecats and the rest are settled.

so its " hey everyone help US raise a ton of money, then its "BYE! we're off to Korea during the reward weekend" where things will and always have gone wrong and needed tweaking because doesn't seem to remember the things that always don't activate from the start and forget to add things.
the previous trnm event was a bust and the weekend they said they'd make up for it most of the crew wont be around? . nice. :scream:
excuse the sarcasm but i am overcome with disappointment right now.
can you guys please up your game.
i've tried many many tweaks and fixes but in the end it still happens..ive managed to reduce it a lot but the gameplay is still NOT what it was before that damn maintenance.
Where did it say triple gear exp? I read it as just triple xp, please tell me I'm wrong. I would prefer triple gear exp!

it was indeed a suggestion, since the way to get gear and BiS is not only through drops but through xp for the most part.
events need to change with the game and be up to date
Since gear xp is relatively new, im not sure if eme has thought of adding it to a weekend event.
i doubt many players are screaming for more leveling xp with all the bonuses around, however i think a weekend of increased gear xp would be amazing!
and possibly also an idea to have double or triple Vanguards for a weekend.
the 2 biggest things you need this patch is xp and gold.
just an idea how to update weekend reward events since we dont really run dungeons for vm mats anymore.
