Does anyone know what will happen with the gold/silver talents? I took a vacation for two weeks and came back to find silver talents at 170g each ( they started slowly from 40g each ).. while also finding out that there will no longer be any strongbox key event ( haha.. ha.. ha.. tries not to cry.. cries anyway ... )

There are days when i feel the urge to fickle the bean before going to sleep to release some steam after losing at fwc too many times in a row.. But now i am kinda ashamed knowing that big brother Xingcode might know about it..
I was reading around and now i am curious if a player can be banned with xigncode after editing s1engine for better fps? Also, if it can be by passed as the rumours go then what is the point of this tool anyway?
Make Velika a dueling ground :d
Sadly Xingcode wont prevent that.
And it looks like EME doesnt want to say the reasons to implement something that doesnt stop them at all.

Then what is the point of xingcode3 if it does not stop hackers and botters? Also, i am not even sure why gwangis at guardians have so many channels to help bots farm silently when very few players go there... At least let us PK the bots xD
Why not disable the area chat around Velika and Highwatch? From what i saw they are focused through that chat in those areas. Also, i went to the bank of Velika and found the bot there next to spaming rofl... Actually, why not get a ban that is automated after say.. 100 players reports?
Elite will no longer be tradeable?
Are we going to see less players "teleporting" around or being immune to damage in PvP? Also, are we going to see less human lancer bots at the guardians/gwuangi? If so then it would be great. Actually, i am not even sure why the Gwuangi was not disabled since players rarely do it but instead it is full of bots on all channels.
Hello, i did now find other place where to ask so i thought to ask here:

Does anyone know exactly how the future patch notes really work? I am asking because for example i was looking over them and i saw buffs that some of our classes already have them? So what is going on? I am more interested about the gunner but i think that some of the buffs were already applied on NA.

I would also be thankful if anyone might know a way to remove the self heal from priest's holy burst spell since its messing with slaying.

What gold from Ghillie? And the only gold from Guardian is the one time per day vanguard....sigh....even translated KTERA makes no sense.

It most likely means that the overall worth of gold from Ghillieglade will be reshaped with some extra talents.

I also like this one:

Suggestion to add Bravery Potion / Lamb Bulgogi source of supply

Planned to make Bravery Potion and Lamb Bulgogi available via crafting
I want to talk about this:


The idea is that i have managed recently to get Tier 8 and i was a bit excited when thinking about better rewards but then i saw that for example even the strongbox keys have the same prices from Tier 6 to Tier 8 and i think that it is wrong considering that there is quite a huge difference in terms of points from one tier to another.
At first, i have opened 20 boxes then 20 boxes and i have opened 20 boxes more ending up with 60+ boxes opened and i did not find a single but a single energetic for either weapon or gloves up to the point where i have started to ask myself if there is either a hidden RNG for the said etchings since it is know that they are heavily wanted or i have the worst luck in this game? I mean, it is not normal to spend almost 200k for nothing and open 60+ boxes just to dismantle the etchings into some crystals that are worth 40g at broker.

I am also wondering why there is not a shop to be able to exchange IV etchings that we do not need for IV that we need with something like 20:1 ratio or something?


Can you please add Strong Bravery/Canephora to the shop? The scarf is nice but it could be nicer to be able to buy something useful and relevant besides some armor items and 7days footsteps.

Please add the said items if possible.

En Masse, please make this possible on NA!

Does anyone know a way to disable this thing? I have searched as much as i could and found nothing.. it was not so bad but after months of doing Guardian Legion Dailies i am starting to feel really dizzy because there is almost a constant screen shake and at this point i might be unable to continue doing dailies.

Please Help!
I felt like asking but is there a buddy up code for Consoles to speed up leveling? I am enjoying the streams on consoles since the players seem to be so hyped about everything but is there such a code? I might try playing on consoles but i definitely do not want to level up like a turtle xD

Also, i think that the game is friendly with the new players because the weapon/armor/jewelry and even etchings/glyphs are far easier to acquire now while at the same time we have guardian legion dailies + other events .. And a new player can definitely get some pretty decent stuff even after two weeks of playing ..

I guess that the awakening skills have glyphs, right? So this is a good timing to farm tokents for the glyphs in advance.

Thanks for the event before the patch ^^

No, awakening doesn't have new master glyphs.

You should be thanking more for next week's event of double item xp. That's better than this pointless event that we just had a couple of weeks ago.


Then i will focus on gearing up instead of farming tokens for glyphs - And i believe that this kind of event is most welcome for whoever might need glyphs ( even titan/storm earth are harder to get now so the tokens might help a little ).

Check your patch notes. It's 20% flat buff (effectively 14%) on release of awakening.

That gets buffed by 1.5x to 30% (or effective 20%) afterwards.

Can you give more info? I am pretty sure that i have checked all the up coming patch notes and did not see anything about this.

Counterpoint, come on? It does not matter if we have it harder but still doable than others. What does matter is that we have to put extra effort where others do not do it because it was not even intended to put that extra effort and even that extra effort does not matter because if our class is not performing as it should then it usually gets ignored for PvE runs...

What i hope is that the awakening skills will make a difference and if possible something will be addressed in the future about the lack of talents. I am not sure what class do you play but i ended up quitting brawler kinda completely since almost nobody wants me to tank considering that the brawler is not performing as it should due to lack of talents compared to lancer. I mean, do you know what it means to not have 3sec CD on haymaker plus other stuff? And i am thinking to give it one last chance with the awakening or else i am done with this class even though i did like the offensive play style as a tank and i guess that i will go to main a priest as i did before ( at least priest is catching up to mystic ).

I guess that the awakening skills have glyphs, right? So this is a good timing to farm tokents for the glyphs in advance.
Give me 3sec on Haymaker and i will be happy.
I was able to get the Elsa hair style which i like a lot ( the idea of giving us only four options to RNG instead of seven was nice ).
WTS +7SC Brawler Gear ( four pieces ) @ 2.3mil gold ( not negotiable since i have the liberation scrolls myself and they are expensive ).


WTT with equivalent gear for priest/mystic/lancer/slayer/berserker or even valkyrie.

Its still up, just found it. Dont forget, it can be in any channel.

The hint i can give is, there's a known mark in the region, for all the ones that like to gain "points".

Thanks! I was so fixed on finding the spot that i missed the other info: it can be in any channel.

My hints:
I can see the city of Highwatch from where I am. It sure is pretty. (Yes, that means it's in Highwatch)
While in the same location on every server, it's not necessarily in the same channel.

Pay attention peoples! XD

It cleary says " i can see the city of highwatch from where i am" so it must be outside and somewhere on a hill/mountain in the Highwatch region.

Though.. I would have loved a second hint about north/west/south/east?


I think that we are rushing a little because KR has Awakenings + Talents and there is a certain balance/imbalance there but we will get only the Awakenings and to our suprise the Awakenings might not actually be that strong without some talents ( 15% flat damage might be just fine for non awakened classes ).

We will have to see.
I was curious as well because for example the Etchings that can use Master Additive are the ones from the Master rank obviously and those are IV Etchings which cost around 50k? if not more? So the Master Additives are currently used for Diamonds? Though as someone said there must be players that are buying them to save up for later.
I am not sure where to ask since there are several threads so i am going to ask here about this brawler passive:

Smoldering Rage

Each perfect block stacks Smoldering Rage buff
Each stacks increases damage of [One-inch Punch] and [Haymaker] by 1%
The buff starts with 5 stacks at first proc, then consumed when using [One-inch Punch] or [Haymaker]

Does anyone know if this passive applies to all perfect blocks as in perfect blocks made while growing fury is up? And for example there are bosses like the crabs/giants that have this trample damage that can proc perfect block even up to seven times in a few seconds and does this apply for the passive as well?

There is this huge debate right now about talents and awakenings and it is very confusing so at the very least i am trying to understand what is there to come. Besides, i think that we are a bit speculative because KR has awakenings + talents while we will get awakenings only and the 15% flat damage buff that some classes will get might actually be quite enough if not even better ( i am trying to consider that some classes are powerful in KR due to talents + awakenings combo ).

What about brawlers? At the very least i saw that in this video with TRNM the brawler had 3sec on haymaker? What is going on with that and why is it so low? New glyph? Lowered damage/cooldown?

I keep hearing that the berserker/slayers will be gods but what about brawlers and possibly lancers?

To be honest, i have played a brawler for a very long time but now i am thinking to reroll priest/lancer depending how the brawler dps goes since the priest/lancer classes have much more utility..

That is the power of talents, we don't get those or any kind of compensation. Because of those talents balancing starts to be really painful and unfair for other regions. We're talking about dungeons taking double the time over here compared to Korea.

You mean to say that the brawler in this TNRM video had 3sec on Haymaker because of the talent system? I mean, the Haymaker skill is the most important skill for brawler in PvE and right now it usually has 7sec with all CDRs available so that means more than 50% CDR reduction and we do not have it? Ok.. I am going to breath and move on..

Still.. what about the awakenings? I kept hearing that the new stuff will be pretty good and it will boost classes but what about brawler? For example.. the dps from brawler will make a difference to deal with the utility from lancer? At the very least, i have seen that the brawler will get new offensive skills/passives while the lancer will get some defensive/offensive and i am really curious about the result ...

The truth is that i have played brawler for so long and i was happy with it but more and more of the dungeon runs ask for lancer instead of brawler simply because the extra dps which is not even that much from brawler does not cover for the utility that lancer brings... And this is more or less the situation where players would prefer mystics over priests xD
Leaderboards too serious now.

Does anyone know if the Awakening skills work for PvP? And which PvP? Battleground? Civil Unrest? Anything?

Small things that can make such improvements. But we do not get them.


I will finally be able to play priest and enjoy it seeing all the new buffs/skills.
It would be interesting to see the level 65 players getting equalized with gear/skills/level when entering certain areas.

Would that stop PK? And also entertaing some PvP? Because camping areas with 20+ levels higher and griefing is definitely not something contructive and neither fun ( even the griefers that like this kind of torture get bored eventually ).
Castanic Underground Boss? Get it? Do you? ^^
I think that the box is just fine considering that it is a consumable box and it does have useful consumables.

It would be interesting to see some better rewards from the gift box because i have opened recently some 40ish and barely got anything useful.
Try to change the DNS.

It worked for me.
Hmm seems they have no ideas as to an "event". Congrats EM you're officially worse than Game Forge where at least there is an Easter egg event happening and "allegiance" event every weekend.
Maybe you should hire a few Europeans from GF; seeing as how you're out of ideas.


This mount is actually nice ( i am already seeing this elin with this hair style on this mount xD ).

And i think that EME is catching up and doing pretty OK lately.. especially since some months ago BUT there is something up with Gameforge because they put so much effort into changing/improving that they do not hold back at all ( they probably have hired a special team to take care of certain things that as you see are kinda.. special ).
Then from what i can understand we are going to have two different voucher which will give us the option to either change to new or classic with the classic being the ones that we had until now? And the classic is needed to help those who might want the "old" hair styles?

I am not sure what is a classic hair style xD

p.s. tail modification sure is interesting as well
I like it.

Why? On MT at least there was such a monopoly that you had to buy 1k overpriced talents even if you needed a few hundred or less simply because whoever decided to have the monopoly was too lazy to even list stacks with less than 1k talents. And this is a fresh air that many of us needed for enchanting/upgrading.

Also.. whoever was inspired enough to re stock on keys early is now going to be rich xD
I have opened the PC and played for a few hours but then i had to restart the game and all of a sudden i was getting this message and after reading this thread and trying all sort of things listed.. it seems that it was eventually solved by changing the DNS from Level3 to Verisign.

Hope it helps.

I have been complaining a lot in the past two years due to many things that i thought that Tera needed and partially i think that i was righ but things slowly changed in the past few months and i am really happy to see that both the PvP and PvE are increasingly active with each day as if it is getting better and better while at the same time i see more and more players that are pleased with the game again slowly giving a more positive vibe in the game and making players to want to get involved all around.. And with everything said i believe that at least this time i need to give the credit where it is due.

Thank you.


p.s. if there is one that i might ask then that is to please make rare glyphs somehow easier to grab
This is not entirely accurate and especially since you make it to look so easy because:

- you need a tank to keep aggro so you can back crit as much as possible or else your 45min turns into a 1hr+ even if you i-frame all the time to go behind the boss and lately there are not many tanks around
- you need to use strong canephora/bravery that are kinda limited through elite and if you go for five characters then you might need to use the normal ones which give less damage unless you buy strong ones from broker
- all the characters at +0 frostmetal need to be healers or else it is a pain.. and even those healers need a tank or else they lose so much potential damage considering how much the bams spin around
- the other two high SC characters again rely so much on tanks both for damage/survivability.. unless the said characters are tanks themselves but then the tanks can take even 1hr with slaying and 2.0 dragon
- all the characters need to have all the glyphs available in game plus III etchings and with the IOD lately that is actually hard to get plus so much gold into gear before making them useful ( especially those high SC characters )
- etc

The point that i am trying to make is that it is possible to make some nice gold per hour but before that it takes quite a lot of investment both in time and gold to acquire everthing and it is not like anyone can do it all of a sudden .. So it is more like investing for mid/long term.. Though i have to agree that it is better than Pit/Ghillie simply because the gold income is much more relevant through gems alone ( and the sapphires got nerfed from the guardian boxes by the way so now it is more like 275g per box ).

p.s. i am not sure what is the purpose of this thread because everyone knows that guardian gives the best gold per hour these days
En Masse, please help! It got so far where the Gold Talent reached almost 30g per piece ( used to be 10g each ), and the Silver Talent reached almost 60g each ( used to be 30g ).. so the prices practically doubled. And that is not all.. because it seems that some players are trying to take advantage of the fact that there is little supply on the market to control the prices and it is getting harder and harder to craft or enchant/upgrade gear.

Look at this for example: r4VZsO8.jpg

Players are buying all the silver talents from the market to put them back at increased price to make profit but the real damaging part is that they are putting the stacks at 1k up to 5k which are simply too expensive to buy ( especially if the players are alts that are almost never online to negotiate so there is another 10% increase there for a buy out ).

And i do not think that gold sellers have anything to do with this. It is simply a problem of supply/demand and some few players that are trying to take advantage of this ( i can try to do dungeons like rg/kc/sf for gold/silver talents but they barely give 1-2 silver talents and 6-7 gold talents per run).
It was a bit confusing because it said in game that we can get a key from winning FWC/CS but the key was not guaranteed? It could make sense because i had about 5FWC victories that night and no key xD
Just dance like nobody is watching?

And Tera is getting a lot of attention from BHS/EME/Gameforge ( i know.. Gameforge is in EU but it affects NA indirectly xD ).. and because of it we might see some very interesting things in the future. At least, i like the fact that we are getting much more events recently for both PvP and PvE on NA while at the same time we have the Awakening patch nexth month and many other things that we have still yet to receive so i do not see Tera dying anytime soon ( i play on MT by the way and if i would consider the numbers that i see at guardians every day or the huge amount of players during the civil unrest as in 200+.. then i can say that the game is pretty lively at least on this realm ).
I am having an easier time with the guardian missions when it comes about either buying or crafting gems because the emeralds used to cost even 1350g up to 1400g and it was better if i would craft them through NPC materials so i was kinda doing that.. but right now i can do guardians and turn the rubies/sapphires from boxes into emeralds.. or i can buy the rubies/sapphires from the broker to craft emeralds ( this requires some luck ).. and even buy the emeralds from the broker at 1200g up to 1250g depending on the supply/demand.

And the diamonds are not that high either so it is fine because it could have been worse ( imagine diamonds at 14k up to 15k ).

Also, the recipe to craft Emerald costs only 10k where as the silver siglo or gold daric cost 50k .. so the Emerald crafting should not be at the same level when it comes about profit and that especially since crafting Emeralds carries almost no risk compared to gold talent going over time from 10g to 30g and silver talent from 30g to 50g ( interestingly enough.. silver siglo or gold daric make quite the profit anyway due to the high demand ).

If i would think about gem crafting then what i would like to see was more sapphires from the guardian boxes that could help us to craft emeralds easier since its more expensive starting from rubies than sapphires.

p.s. all crafted items have 5% chance to crit from my experience
I wonder how exactly the extreme mode of KNX really looks like haha..

The real funny bit was setting Priests out-DPSing Awakened Lancers.

Am i seeing things? =)

The initial priest god mode (which gave them super damage and made all their hits do 3mil each and be considered from the back and *basically* always crit) was pretty powerful and was really good for Healer dps. Now iirc it's a large party buff that gives a large chunk of crit and power

Thank you.

This is why i have opened this thread because there are small details that i have a hard time to find even if i go to read from certain sources ( i am glad that it is a party buff so that priest can also be considered besides mystics for PvE ).

And i have decided to roll a priest as main since i feel more comfortable with it and i always liked to be a support class usually playing druids/priests/shaman but i have another questions so please answer if possible: are still archers/gunners any good? i want to get one of those as well but i do not want to fall behind too much in damage at PvE and fell bad about it xD

I have decided to switch to a priest since the awakening is coming anyway.

Thank you for all the replies ^^
I think that the biggest issue is that a part of the population no longer does IOD and because of it a certain % of gold talents is no longer being acquired and distributed on the market. At least, i used to do a lot of IOD in the past but now it sucks so much that i no longer do it and especially since there is no keen mote ( with this said now i am buying only from the market and i am buying a lot because i need to craft golden daric/plate for enchanting ).

Anyway, what really happened at least from my point of view is that the acquiring rate dropped due to several reasons while at the same time the demand increased and it will keep increasing with the male brawler coming since there will be a sizeable chunk of players that will enchant the gear from scratch.
The real funny bit was setting Priests out-DPSing Awakened Lancers.

250k worth of gold for 9999 fashion coupons considering the NPC price.

I hope that the EMP counter part will not be too expensive.

i'm pretty sure that damage received is based on % of hp, regardless of your gear, cause i lose same ammount of my hp with sc +2 leather armor and with 0 frost cloth.

This must be the case because i kept looking and it seemed that my undergeared alts were getting hit by the same numbers as my geared main ( for example 25k damage per ball at the escape from quest ). And with this said it might actually be better to use HP Niveots.
HLK76PFWXT wrote: »
I mean, i might as well go with my other brawler with +0frost armor and most likely do as good since it is all about blocking/dodging.

The reason why you take set %'s of damage, and are forced to dodge/block/iframe is so that there won't be a million botting brawlers running a script.

It's the same reason you can't get contribution from healing, because then there would just be a million mystics afking spamming totems, 24/7/365.

You can't be afk and get good contribution.

I feel you. And i dislike bots so much because they do little damage and ruin the enrage timers actually nerfing my dps ( especially since i see them on a daily basis at basilisks ).

But my point was that the bosses hit so hard that they can almost two shot me regardless of gear and at this point i guess that i might as well go with +0frostmetal armor though it seems that the damage might be fixed to %HP or simply a fixed number like 25k per ball of fire and with this said it might be better to use HP niveots plus other stuff that boosts HP

p.s. slaying is love
And please also don't forget the people that play the broker. Some people invested alot into talents and if enmasse intervenes these people would feel stabbed in the back losing milions of gold.

Since when En Masse should defend and aid players that are trying to make a profit by trying to have a monopoly on the market in game knowing that the items with high demand can be bought at XX and sold back with 50% or more? I am actually quite upset seeing this player on MT buying so much when there is a high demand on certain items and selling back with 50% added in stacks of 500 or 1000 ruining the market in so many ways ( i am a crafter and i get screwed hard with this stuff ).

Anyway, i hope that we will get some events or stuff for talents because the high demand along with the broker sharks made the talents to be harder and harder to get ( we did not even get the male brawler yet ).

The answer to this isn't some complex formula about gear stats. It's that Guardian missions weren't meant to be done solo. They're meant to be community events where everyone works together toward a common goal.

I also thought about that. This is for party/raid purposes.

But healers are main dps and almost nobody wants or bothers to heal because they simply lose points from doing that and even like that they need to form or join a party/raid because they cannot see the HP of players and most of non lock on spells do not even heal/shield like for example the puddle or kaia from priest that from my point of view should at least heal/shield non party players at guardians ( i am also confused as of why healers do not get contribution points from healing even though at a lesser rate than their dps counterpart ).

Also, many times i end up soloing because there are not enough players online or they are simply too spread and my curiosity is why a bam hits as hard when i am soloing compared to when there are 5-15 players around? Shouldn't there be a scale on damage done from bams from a minimum up to a maximum based on how many players are in the area?

p.s. i did play some four years ago with forty players in a raid and i do not remember nexus being like this
I want to ask more about the awakening because to be honest i have no idea where to find informationa about it because mainly players that are on both KR/NA kinda have this information so please share if you know:

What is the order of DPS after awakening for PvE? This includes all sort of dungeons from solo to four star or even HH up to guardian missions since the main income is from there.. So will i be fine if i will main a valkyrie? What about archer/gunner? And berserker will be above all? Or should i stay with brawler?

What is the order of proficiency for PvP after awakening? Should i main a priest for Battlegrounds, Civil Unrest and GvG? Maybe stay with brawler? Or try a lancer? This is for efficiency purposes ( i like to be useful at PvP and i am usually a tank/healer player though i am also happy with a ranged dps class ).

I am simply almost burned with brawler and i thinking to switch after awakening - And if there might be something else to add about awakenings or future updates then please do it -
I am making this thread because i am extremely curious to know more about the guardian bams since they hit so hard that sometimes i feel like being send back to the future.

What i want to say is that for example right now i have +7SC boots/gloves with +5SC chest and i am playing a Tank class called Brawler while at the same time i use bravery potion and i have even more damage reduction from etchings or smart dyads on weapon plus other sources.. So i am pretty much "stacked" ... But then i go to this retar.. ret.. retaliator CRAB that jumps once and takes half of my hit points then i go at Basilisk and this vortex takes me in much like a demented lover leaving me trashed on the ground so i go at other bams and they are as much as nast.. nice! Of course, ever since i am doing these bams my reflexes reached almost lighning speed and now i am blocking or dodging so i am not taking that much damage but even so i am unable to understand the meaning of gear when these bosses hit so hard anyway? I mean, i might as well go with my other brawler with +0frost armor and most likely do as good since it is all about blocking/dodging.

So what is the point of trying to improve on damage reduction when such bams hit so hard anyway? And i would not bother but this is the main income for gold these days..

Also, on another subject but somewhat related: why is a lancer able to remove 8/8 jackhamer that has 12% and add 1/3 debilitate that has 4%? There should be a priority there and especially since most of lancers take more than a minute to build 3/3 debilitate unless they forget and restart with another 1/3...
Most players level up through vanguards either doing dungeons or bams teleporting from one place to another so you might not find that many players doing normal quests or even story quests anymore.

Also, i believe that the game is playable up to a certain point.
I hope that we will get this "hat placement" and it will be the usual way instead of getting it through some sort of "event" sometimes in the future.

Also, i hope that the random hair styles will be with the fasion coupons while the specific ones with EMP.
I guess that is fair to give free Twistshard ( actually, there is not much of a distance from twistshard and guardian ) since we are so ahead with the gear. Also, the gold talents jumped from 10g to 30g these days ( today saw them going down a little over 25g ) and imagine all these brawlers buying the gold talents to enchant stuff.

Might as well add some events for gold talents?
I love you!

Hmmm.. So what exactly is transpiring here? ^_^

By the way, i saw that there is a second phase for the fashion coupon store and i thought to ask if it might be possible to get some info about that? Thanks.

p.s. love is like pizza... cheesy xD
R.I.P Attack Speed.
This is very impressive and especially since i never thought that i will see three pages with mounts.. But I am not seeing that white duck with a red cosmetic on its head? How it is called? I like that mount so much and yet i have rarely seen it in game though i have to agree that the kitty mounts are also especially cute and even more on elin characters.

p.s. good luck with your quest

Maybe I should post a screenshot of me on my Glimmerheart. I wonder how many people nowadays even remember that gaudy monstrosity, or the conflict surrounding it... And yes, for what it's worth - I'd be perfectly okay with that being placed in the EME store. If someone wants to look that hideous, and pay money to do so, let them. It will mean something very different to them than it will to me... and as I said in my first post, my memories are not diminished by someone else acquiring it.

I have that yellow wolf that i never used on my account as well and i do remember about the 1% forum threads if you know what i mean ^_^

Anyway, i took some screenshots with three of my characters that got involved with alliance when PvP was actually crazy as in 20v20 or 30v30 almost every night ( i even remember those 2hrs conflicts from many years ago ). And i have three alliance masks on three different characters plus a ghost knight helm mask from when sirjuka gallery was around.


Now, i do not need any of these masks because i am playing a different new character with different new cosmetics that i like much more nowadays.. but still i think that whoever wanted and misssed these masks at the time should be given some options to get them ( the new KR addition is still far away if i am not wrong since it will come around on NA in around three more or more.. ).

Getting alliance mask was not an easy task. (Inserts laugh meme)
Explain to me then how in tr, a person monopolized all 3 alliances, feeded his/her way to watch and started to charge gold to everyone who wanted the mask, bribed people that got too close to exarch spot in order for them to drop and let one of his friends have the mask, taking away the chance of anyone not in his/her circle, to obtain said mask.

We all know that FML priest and to be honest i am glad that the alliance ended because for years all that he did was to harass guilds and/or players that wanted to get involved with the alliance going as far to even convince guild leaders that it was for the better of the guild to kick certain players or else war would unleash and even going as far to send tickets to support to try to ban players with forged evidence because all that he wanted was to have an entire monopoly on the alliance system ( i actually left TR for MT exactly because of this same person ).

And you are silly if you did not know or ask around at the time because he did not feed or anything. All that he did was to level up a new character from scratch to level 65 after joining any of the desired alliance because leveling up was stupidly giving almost 1.5k extra alliance points for that.. Then he was using high level characters to do quests for that low level while hurrying to get that new character to level 65 to unlock all the alliance quests.. And in this way he could easily seize any of the exarch positions because the PvP was dead and nobody could get almost 1.5k extra points even through feeding. Anyway, if you did not know or ask about this then this is how it is ... but it was actually super easy.

Still .. that player had a monopoly on the alliance system but then how anything will improve if there will be another monopoly on the alliance masks?
I am saluting the change about vouchers getting them at 15% discount since the EMP prices went up because of the Federation Gem Boxes ( also, please consider liberation scrolls/etc ).

What it does not make sense and it is somewhat funny if not infuriating for whoever uses the gender/race vouchers is that the wording "Finally" and "in order to ensure a high level of service for all TERA players" does not actually reflect the true meaning since the system is being "nerfed" and not "buffed" for all Tera players and that especially since the vouchers can be bought only with EMP so there is real money involved.. Also, as many said.. a discount does not help with some of the rare or very rare cosmetics if not quite expensive though at the same time i can also consider that maybe there are players that take this option too far swapping the gender/race and then sending a ticket for x10 or x20 cosmetics ( reminds me of this friend that race changed three times in a single week haha.. ).

Anyway, maybe it is better to try to come up with a more realistic or at least relevant message that could be more straight forward instead of being coated with extra sugar while at the same time try to come up with some sort of new ideas for improvement? I mean, what if there was a new and different voucher that would come for free after buying a gender/race voucher and that voucher would let players to change their own cosmetics in the same way that a player can use for example the Shape Changer:Thighs opening a tab with options and taking a choice? And the new voucher would simply delete the cosmetics from a player inventory then send a new one automatically through claim?
I am mostly a FWC/CS player and i am so happy to see them up there basically every day.. But i still think that maybe the 3s deserved a day out of the entire week? Though i guess that the single day was still not enough with 3s being unhappy that they got only a day in the entire week and then maybe even two days was not enough to satisfy the needs ( unfortunately, i did see with the in chat game that 3s were being abused hard by win traders and also afk players ).

Anyway.. what about coming up with some sort of cap for every character much like guardian missions while at the same time probably not let characters with less than X hours played at level 65 to queue because those are surely not trying to actually do 3s but instead have other motives? If the 3s players want it back then i hope that they are also willing to make a compromise?
i support putting alliance mask in coupon shop, there is no other way to get them anymore it's unfair to new players
plus having them in the game will certainly boost the fashion statement which will benefit many (including older players for new chars that they have created) - i dont understand why people prefer to grind for it still and want to keep it to themselves when it can be openly available.

I have to agree with this because if the alliance masks were in game then i could understand that players who are grinding for them could deserve to have them as exclusive items but since the items are no longer in game then i think that it is fair to let anyone else have it. And especially since the alliance content will not comeback anytime soon. Also, the alliance pvp died with one year before the content was removed and the grind was not really that hard since you could join the alliance with the least members active and get exarch with little effort mostly from dailies - leveling up alts for the mask from scratch since they were getting alliance points from leveling was also extremely easy- .. So whoever got the masks before the content was removed did not actually put that much effort into it and simply got them because the content was still available ( it is not like they cleared this hard mode dungeon that was actually "hard" ).

In my case, i have around three or four masks since i am playing for years and i could always jump in and get one - especially when pvp was in its prime and it was even fun to do it- so it is not like i want them for myself but i still think that others should have them if they wanted to..

Something is up when you used to see crystal boxes at 70g.. then all of a sudden they jumped to 200g+ or higher.

Please add a way to get smart dyads without relying so much on RNG ^^
I did not want to be negative about it on the forums and especially since EME is putting so much effort into Tera/NA/PC lately .. but i did thought about not playing at that time because .. reasons.

It was nice if it could be implemented but with a more realistic RNG where it was needed to farm but not up to the point where we could end up becoming zombies.
This is very nice! I can finally use the Eagle Helm on mains/alts without having to pay so much at the broker. But i think that 300 coupons for this helm is a bit low? Why not 500? Or i am just exaggerating?

And i am really grateful for all the hard work put in there ( checking the items from the entire database and such ).

By the way.. What just happened to En Masse? It started to be kinda amazing.


So i am a brawler that used to play with the default Skill Shake at 50% and Other Player's Skill Shake at 50% but then i have started feeling dizzy after playing so many hours for so many months doing so many groundpounds and such.. So i ended up disabling these two options putting them at 0% .. But then to my surprise not only that my FPS visibly improved but also the MS improved where i ended up jumping from the usual 170MS with annoying delays and sometimes freezes up to a constant 100MS where freezes disappeared almost completely and the game starting to work like a charm ( the MS itself as a number did not change but i could definitely see the change in game and that especially since not only that my dps definitely improved considering that now i finish guardians with a 45min mark or lower unlike 1hr as before. but also now i can dodge stuns from bosses and anything else perfectly unlike before ).

And my question is: Did anyone had this issue? Is it only me? And is there anything else related to Skill Shake that can be disabled to improve fps/ms?

p.s. i hope that this is the right section to post about it

You'll honestly make more money by doing it this way, because people are more likely to spend a higher amount for a guaranteed costume. Great move, EME.

The good news about this theory is that they'll know whether that's true or not. The bad news is also that they'll know whether that's true or not.

I hope that it goes well since the playerbase is kinda messy right now and this new change might not have such a great impact ( imagine if it was implemented two years ago ). But as i said.. i hope that it goes well because i like this change a lot.

LOL - I don't even know what that means.

Ham-fisted is another term for ham-handed, which means: clumsy, bungling, incompetent, amateurish, inept, unskillful, inexpert, maladroit, gauche, awkward, inefficient, bumbling, useless.

Maladroit?!! This sounds like some sort of rare medicine? And Gauche sounds like some sort of french action movie where nobody dies but everyone is a hero xDDD

Anyway, the awakening patch being fun and playable is starting to look more like a fleeting dream ( imagine how the market will look like when the emp might be 1:50 or 1:60 and % population will have a very high consumption power while the rest will have to simply act as spectators ).

So it is a female on the inside? Is this some kind of plastic surgery? XD
Given the existing surplus of gold among the average player, this event benefited the free players more than the paying ones

I am probably not exaggerating if i consider this as some kind of pandora box but i guess that it is better to keep most of the assumptions just for myself.

But let me say this:

The game will be different if the EMP rate will become 1:50 or 1:60 in the near future and all emp sellers will buy only gem crates unintentionally driving everything from broker such as cosmetics/vouchers/mounts/pets//etc to extinction while also % of the population will have a very high consumption when buying enchanting/upgrading materials or even crafted items for that matter.. and the rest will have to think twice about upgrading/enchanting since the prices will surge just like they did these days when the offer became available.

p.s. i was looking forward to see the awakening patch and have fun with my friends
Right now guardian legion bams, if you solo it you will get x amount of boxes, if there is 2 people then the amount of boxes are increased by that amount so 2x. If one person is a tank and the other a healer, and the healer don't dps the bam then the tank will end up doing more boxes than he should have done if he solo it.

I think that it greatly depends on what classes attack the bam because some classes can debuff and that indirectly can give damage to other players while at the same time it also matters greatly what kind of dps the players have overall because the enrage uptime on a bam can be either 90% or 50% plus if there is a tank present giving more back crit to certain classes.. While at the same time it also matters how big is the bam because it is always better to keep fighting constantly than teleport to one place to another and wait for introductions.. So this is why it is mostly better to do the blue quests because it is very likely that priest/mystic and/or lancer/warrior/brawler debuffs will be present while two or three undergeared players might not affect that much the enrage uptime while a tank might be there and the bams have overall more HP..

What i am trying to say is that player A will not necessarily gain more boxes per minute if the player B will not dps but instead depending on debuffs/enrage and classes such as tanks/dps/healer then player A might actually get less box per minute compared to soloing.

Anyway, i think that the priest should try to get +0 frostmetal with crit build ( get around 330 with mystic aura ) and go full dps because for example i am getting boxes as fast on my +0frost priest compared to my +7 brawler which also has 2.0 dragon and etchings on jewelries besides that there is less focus required on priest so it is more relaxing ( the system with shared points can be abused by overgeared/undergeared players - which is why IOD was changed as far as i know ).
If it keeps going on and I saw it enough on other korean mmorpg. Farming becomes pretty useless and everything becomes ridiculous expensive.

Exactly as it says.. it can become ridiculous..

And nobody will gain anything because the farmers and the spenders will have to pay more to acquire the same items from the present meaning that the farmers will have to farm more while the spenders will have to spend more and if the farmers decide to farm less and not care anymore then the enchanting materials will be quite hard to get - especially if some of the farmers are crafters - meaning that the spenders might reconsider spending as well.. For example: i saw that it costs 90k with 7% base enchant to upgrade from +9sc to the next tier and imagine what happens if the prices go higher from now where we might end up with 150k per try - nobody will gain from that - including EME because players will vanish - besides that the vouchers/liberation/cosmetics will be super expensive..

I hope that there is a really good plan that was made up for this and EME is ready to help the market with enchanting/upgrading materials if needed through events or anything while considering carefully when and how to release gem crates to not mess up the EMP rate where for example a name change voucher might end up costing 60k or elte 30days for 120k ( i am not sure who will like liberation scrolls at 60k either ).

Feels like enmasse is trying to cash out before this game dies

We might as well consider that if we would look at Tera from the past two years but this time something is moving and it might be a big fish.

What i hope is that En Masse will play this card really well because for example i do not mind to see pay to win offers now and then with whales swimming in a sea of gems as long as there will be other options in game such as events and even elite bonuses or in game updated shops.. if not other things for the "plebs" to be able to not only play the game and have activity but also be able to aford anything from enchanting/upgrading to new cosmetics and what else the game might throw at us.. And that considering that the Golden Daric jumped from 60g to 100g while the EMP prices kinda steadily moved from 1:30 to 1:40 and even 1:50.. So the change is kinda visible ( sometimes in the future i am expecting to pay 50k+ for a liberation scroll for example ).

So please try to play it smart to not create a huge wall that is called discrepancy which will ruin the in game market and overall the population.. But instead work on balance because if this will card will go well then all of us will win while you will be the biggest winner En Masse.

p.s. also try to reconsider adding more bonuses to battlegrounds

Thank you.
What about giving the piggy mounts as a rotation for elite? Like X piggy for X week? It would be fun to be able to ride those little bast.. bas.. bacons! xD
I pley on Manifest and I am not sure who M.T! IS!
The price on golden daric went at 100g on MT in only a few days.

BTW, shouldn't whales be independent? I mean that is pretty ridiculous to not only force them to financially support the game but to force them to support free players as well. It's not like the elitist free players are really helping the game.

Whales cannot be independent and it is not like anyone is enforcing anything but because there is this natural action and reaction situation where for example if the prices on emp items such as cosmetics/vouchers/etc will rise too much then the free to play or casual spenders might consider that it is not worth it anymore and they might leave towards a different game that can be more appealing ( you are free to do whatever you want with your money and time, right? ). Then what happens? Well, at that point the rest of the players regardless of spenders or not might find themselves in a difficult situation because there might be less crafting items available on the market due to less farmers and the prices might go up on the said items also due to less demand.. Plus there might be less crafters around and again also less demand so the price for the crafted items might go higher so have fun enchanting/upgrading at that point.. And also there might be less groups for dungeons and battlegrounds at which point certain classes might find themselves naturally shunned because there will be less patience with the classes that tend to not perform as good as the ones at the top ( you know.. valk > reaper/warrior/slayer > the rest and also mystic > priest or lancer > brawler depending on dungeons ).

Imagine the situation above with the awakening patch where only certain classes get their awakening and we might have quite the explosive cocktail.

I don't understand that whole commotion. We had all kinds of enchanting supplies in EMP store before.

Sure, you can exchange gems directly for gold but it's a waste - they are worth more on trade broker. So most of these gems will be bought and used by other players, same way as alkahests and spellbinds used to. How is it different from selling elite scrolls, except seller's profit is more RNG?

The issue is these jewels can be used to get enought gold without the need to trade with other players, making then the whales as an independant beings in the game and the f2p players left with less options to get cash shop items throught them.

It is a good news that it is only for a week but as lootboxes always had worked we can be certain that many whales will buy these boxes and EME will just look at how good their sales were, so they will surely will bring this back again in future months.

I did not think about this properly but it seems that everything will get so much more expensive for the non EMP buyers because not only that the EMP rate will go much higher -probably settle at 1:50 from the current 1:30- .. But there will be also much less EMP buyers that will buy anything else than gem crates so everything from cosmetics such as the flight suit for example or the soon to come hair style up to name change/bank account/character slot/gender change/etc voucher and even the elite status voucher will get so much more expensive.

I am not sure if this is a really good way to do business because you please your EMP buyers but you [filtered] up with the non spenders that might disappear over time then the servers will be even emptier than they are right now and those EMP buyers will spend hours to find a single/battleground run.


Actually, the EMP buyers should be worried and not happy with this new change because all their investments might go down the drain pretty fast if the servers go eventually into a semi necrotic state.
I wonder how many boxes are needed for the emeralds and diamonds because those are worth roughly 700k+ gold?? And since the EMP rate is 1:30 as in 6k gold in game while these boxes have a guaranteed 3k gold as minimum -ignoring the emeralds and diamonds which are probably very very rare considering the 700k- .. Then a player might end up with the usual 1:30 after opening so many boxes?

This makes me curious.

Anyway, please be nice and also work up on events and in game shops as hard as you work on pay to win offers and both f2p and p2w should be happy.

I can live with RNG being ugly and nasty but this one seems to be extreme.
I also had these kind of issues for the last few weeks and i kept thinking that it must be my IPS though generally i never had any issues with the ISP and especially since my pings are fine except MT that lags at certain hours up to the fact where my game either lags really badly as in 250-300ms making it unplayable.. or even freezes for several seconds now and then with my ping going down to a fixed 0 ( i had a friend that told me that i should probably move to TR because the ping there seems better ).
I'm in frost but tank balders/gutrend/crab 95% of time for amazing damage off of perfect blocks for 2-3 chests per legion event compared to my frost warrior struggling to get 2

I love to tank crabs for example the second boss at shattered fleet since they trample so much and we can get so many perfect blocks with haymaker.. but this one from guardian legion is on another level because he has two stuns and that jump which many times happen in less than eight seconds if he is enraged.. Though now i know about Groundpounder ( maybe i never noticed how it works since i have 170ms and that delay can cause confusion ) and i will save it for bubbles.. IF it works because right now i am having flash backs with it and it felt like not really working with this crab..

By the way, i was messing around with damage from behind crystals going behind whenever i would see a +9SC Lancer since it is literally impossible to fight for aggro with brawler against lancers even if i do more damage since they have more natural aggro gain especially if i use 20% aggro gain on growing fury.. So i ended up switching from % damage aggro towards you with normal % damage but then when i had to tank normally.. I ended up doing actually more damage so what is going on? Maybe it is because for example the crab at the guardian legion many times turns around on its own to do X skill then comes back to me again on its own and during that time i am not actually the highest in the aggro list even though i have the most aggro? EIther way.. it was very interesting to see that % damage done was better than % aggro towards you

@HLK76PFWXT vs the crab use your iframdes to avoid its stuns and vs the bubbles use skills that can't be interrupted.

The bubbles can't be iframed but if your class have an skill that his animation can't be interruped then use it when bubbles are spawned and that skill will pass throught them.

Groundpounder? Haymaker? I did not know but thanks. I will try it.

The damage from bubbles still sucks.
The rewards are not bad though as they are but indeed it is needed to play certain classes or have certain gear to be able to do anything there..

Actually, i have +3SC armor ( feet/gloves/chest with proper rolls ) on brawler with enduring etchings and i also get the endurance buff from priest at guardian but even so there is this crustacean boss which comes with a green quest for example that takes 30% up to 50% from my HP with a single attack because this boss is so nasty that he does x2 stuns -many times one after another- that each can last 7sec and if i do not i-frame those stuns then he does this pushing attack with bubbles that ruins me HP with everything usually happening in less than eight or ten seconds if enraged ... So i use the i-frames for stuns but then he jumps in the air spawning those bubbles before i have my i-frames ready so he still ruins my HP - also ruining my growing fury ...... And that happens every twenty-thirty seconds or so ( i tried pots but its not helping that much so i ended up even rerolling my gear with % HP per 5seconds to try to maneuver around ).

I am not sure why a boss has two stuns that can last 7sec that he uses many times one after another in a 8sec window while also having this nasty attack jumping in the air and doing heavy damage while pushing tanks away but in my case i ended up avoiding certain bosses like this one ( i also rerolled a new priest and thinking to get a valkyrie as well since the brawler takes so much effort and is so badly rewarded since as a brawler with equivalent or better gear i actually get 2/3 boxes per 5minutes doing equal or better damage compared to the said classes ).

p.s. the thing is that if all the tanks reroll into priests/valks then this might be a problem
A roadmap can never be trusted. It's like a 20 day weather forecast where you expect sunshine and get a blizzard.

Except that the sunshine and blizzard are both a natural phenomenon so it is hard to come up with a forecast.. But the fashion/ace/vanguard shops updates rely on humans? And we were even told that the GM tool can tweak around those changes without a maintenance needed so at the very least Spacecats could do so much until now...

So they say they changed gear to be linear with the Arsenal patch, and that gear wont change again so grind away.

Then they removed basically everything about gear and put it on this RNG Talisman system that you now have to regrind.

This Talisman system is going to be 100% pure cancer.

WoW.. Actually WOOOW! How did i not think about this! This talisman addition actually denies the importance of gear meaning that the whole change with the Arsenal patch did not really improve anything. And if we consider how freaking expensive is to go past +9SC ( i have seen a screenshot with 90k gold cost and +7% base enchant chance just to upgrade from +9 to the next +0 ... ) while the gear itself is less relevant then i am really wondering about what is going on??
I have noticed that we cannot bank certain nocteniums which is not nice but still my question is: do i lag if i do not use noctenium since it should not get all that crazy ordeal to open my inventory and -1 whenever used?
I am not sure how players call it PvP as in Player v.s Player when they queue with PvE crystals as in Player v.s Environment .. Aanddd since the said players have wrong crystals setup for PvP then they might as well have a poor glyph setup and if why not then probably a lack of knowledge about certain classes and skills ( might explain why your stun gets KDed by this amazing popori then that stunned player gets away when it should have probably died xD ).

Anyway, i am with the players that kick in these cases because it only harms the PvP party/raid.
Oh I'll snuff out the conspiracies - this week's patch/maintenance has nothing to do with Fashion Coupon shop updates. That can be done live while the servers are up with our GM Tool. The maintenance this week is going to patch some server crash issues.

See? I'm helpful!

See? I noticed that! By the way, have you ever considered applying for the CM position? xD

Still.. i am not sure if was supposed OR we were supposed to know because in the end EME can do so many things which sometimes might not even take that much effort but then why does it not happen? At least maybe try to update the fashion coupon for example just for a few days with certain items then call it an event or something? If certain items cannot stay too much in there? I am just guessing xD

I kinda wish that we could have a mixture of Sky Castles/Alliance Forts/Civil Unrest Towers sort of area where we could brawl for the top three attacking or defending forts to get sky castles and other stuff ( the pvp could have been fun ).

But we get even more RNG with Talismans ( and some classes still get denied for not having awakenings in time ).

Who knows what will happen.. we will have to see i guess.

Meter helped jimmy log stats, progress, hpm, buff uptimes to help positioning, etc. Jimmy is not a min maxer but likes to feel like hes contributing to the party.

I actually know this brawler with +0SC weapon? ( i cannot remember well from that time ) that he slowly farmed his gear along with with 1.5 crit power dragon and some other stuff so he had decent gear and he thought that he can pull his weight when doing dungeons but then this friend saw through this website that the brawler was doing really poor having only 1.5mil dps at trnm when he could have 2.3mil .. so this brawler started researching everything that he could being shocked by his performance and he learned that he was using a wrong rotation with wrong crit/power balance and even wrong glyphs or wrong skill bonuses on weapon/chest plus he even learned that canephora>bravery .. And fast forwards he learned and improved so now he gets 2.5mil up to 2.7mil at trnm with +5SC...

Unfortunately, this one of the very rare cases when this website helped this player because in most of the cases the website ( which is public and can gather info as long as one player in the party has this thing installed so the other players have no opinion on the matter if they agree or not to have their names and their performance shared like that ) is being used to call out and harass players - i ended up leaving a guild once after seeing how toxic the chat was at discord towards non guildie players that were not min/max - so i kinda understand why EME does not want these things around..

There is nothing wrong with the tool but the wrong part is how it is being used.
