I've killed a few of those crabs at the outskirts and in Kaiator. They drop nothing so far. Do they have purpose?
It took a while of farming between bg queues but they did drop some stuff while hunting them. It seems really rare though. The drops I saw were

Simple Salt
Rejuv Pot
health pot
Gem Box
Noct (15)
Strong Bravery
strong cane
sup noct

and oddly enough there were times when the crabs would drop two things like simple salt and a bravery. Again, getting them to drop anything at all seems a bit rare.
If you stop by velika or velika outskirts where the mobs are you may spot a crab that isn't suppose to be there.

@CassandraTR As the newbie, I need a little more context.

Could you please specify what the fashion coupons were for and what shop updates do you mean?

Thanks!

Would you mind telling me why exactly are you hired as a CM without having any knowledge about this game whatsoever ? With all due respect, if you are hired to be a community manager of a game you oughta at least do your homework and actually know what you are talking about or have a little bit of background without going in blind and asking questions like these. You are aware that nobody, and I mean nobody will like you or respect you if you act oblivious like this instead of just sitting down prior and doing investigation about the game. Not only did you already prove that you have no idea what kind of game this is, but you have proven you have no idea what is plaguing the community that YOU ARE suppose to be hearing from. At least have some decency, Spacecats was eaten alive because he was oblivious and made fun of so many times, do you really, and I mean really want to go down the same path ? It doesent take long time to actually get to know this game, the things people are complaining about, or will you just be one of those *Oh wait, I am working as a voice of all the community, lemme just learn what this thing you are talking about is because I have no idea whatsoever what is it* because you are doing just that.
You have no excuses, and I mean really no excuses whatsoever to be asking for clarification of what a certain item in the game is. Sorry for being so blunt, but either take it as a criticism and do something about it or watch this community tear you open a new one
You seem upset my dude.

Relax, no one learns everything this game has to offer overnight or even within a week. It'll be okay. Just breathe :heart:
The crabs drop blue noct!
To add to the list of ways to get them I got a couple of refiners from the iod box. Not saying thats a reliable way to farm them though.

I agree that the vg cost is extremely high and should be adjusted to match EU. Why are they so high in the first place?

These times are lame, not everyone can play on the weekends. I hope EME will at least put it into battleground jackpot rotation in July along with CS/Fraywind. If it stays on weekends like this I'll literally never be able to try it which is a shame because it looks really fun.
Since EU also has it at a limited time slot I'm guessing the limited time slots came from BHS.

I agree that this isn't ideal. NA is a large region with a lot of different timezones to consider. If it stays a limited system there is always going to be a group of players left out.
That's for console

They wont get Xing, as it directly conflicts with European general law.
As explained in another thread, it doesn't necessarily conflict with the law. There are a number of games in EU (like Black Desert, Blade and Soul, EME's Closers, etc.) that do use that program. Gameforge may still decide not to go that path, of course.

All Korean based games that don't need to follow European law. Sure, they may update their terms to add in a bunch of garbage, but they don't have to follow any of it. You're just being ignorant and silly and pointing to stuff that you know can be ignored.
Uhh, I'm talking about the EU-published versions of those games, and they absolutely need to comply with EU law. EME also needs to comply with EU law as long as they offer products to EU natural persons (which they certainly do with games like Closers). It's absolutely applicable. That's why Gravity Interactive, who also publishes Korean games, completely pulled out of EU last month (in fear that they couldn't comply with GDPR). They wouldn't have done that if "they don't have to follow any of it." Pretending they don't have to comply with the law just because they're "Korean based games" would definitely make it illegal in the EU.

So shes playing Tera on a Mac and shes using nvidia geforce cloud thingy to play. With this Xigncode, its not allowed anymore and she can nolonger play. Any of you using the same thing and having any solutions?

I recommend she contact EME in a ticket about this situation. This is something they may have to work with Nvidia to solve, but it's something they clearly have done before since PUBG is working there. Likely either EME or Nvidia has to change some options on their end to make this work again.

Why even give people hope and tell them to contact support? Do you think support is going to suddenly change the code to allow this cloud? Give it up already.
They certainly have proven they can. PUBG is also made by BHS, supported by EME, uses XIGNCODE3, and is one of the featured games on GeForce Now (the very cloud service that's being referred to). Plus, by its very nature, that cloud service is going to host all sorts of other games that also have various kinds of anti-cheat software like this; they just probably weren't prepared for it being added to TERA. So... yes? It's certainly at least worth asking.

I guess in your little world hackers don't exist, because "hacking is against the law". Oh, please.

I don't even know why I respond, because you always come back with the worst rebuttals just to prove some point that you simply don't understand. Just like you bringing PUBG into this when Tera is the lowest priority and PUBG is the highest. Telling people they might get the same as PUBG is just sad. PUBG isn't supported by EME, so you have that backwards. EME is supported/directed by BHS and that's it.

I'm trying to have a serious discussion here, and you're just pulling stuff from all over the place to distract everyone. It's dribble, and you're not helping the situation at all.

Grate bate mate

Trolling counterpoint in a thread where players are trying to present their case to eme about xigncode helps no one. Relax my dude. Getting the thread locked resolves nothing and helps no one lmao

This thread has been really helpful so far for me to gather up feedback and pass it over to EME. It's been really clear and constructive. Singlebear made a comment today about the BG coins in the EME discord.

942b30a907.png

I'd like to be able to present them with a few ideas, no promises on what actually gets thrown in there though. I'd like to get a list of items and what you think it'd cost based off how many games you've played and tokens you earned.

Feedback I have so far, please say if I've missed something crucial:
The prices are too high
Having consumables is unoriginal and boring
There are no gold and silver talents.
There are no emeralds
There are no otherworldly shards
Losing games should still earn tokens

What I'm looking for now is lists of items players are looking to see and a price. Keep in mind when suggesting prices and items that unlike Dungeon Coins, BG coins can technically be earned 24/7.
This is for all servers!

This month I'm hosting a best of 3, single elimination Corsairs Stronghold event. If you're interested in participating here's the discord link that it will be organized out of!

Sign ups for the event ends June 21st so make a team and sign up soon! The winning team will get 1 month of elite and there are plans for more events in the future.

Yes, i am.
Should check to see which publisher you downloaded from. When tera was first released on steam it was only the eme/NA version. They had to remove the option to download for EU players at the request of Gameforge (Treeshark put a news post out at the time but it's probably gone now). There's a chance you started on the NA servers but are currently running the EU version of the game.

If it is the same version, there was a server merge a while back ago. A lot of inactive servers were merged together into what is now Fey Forest. I'd look for them there.

Bring the old system back. Its was fine with the bellicarium and killing spree credits. In fact, the shops are still there, just upgrade the itens

In the last ktera patch, the bellicarium credits are back >>>> https://essentialmana.com/news/5-31-18-patch-notes/. The question is: are we going to get that ? @SingleBear

Till this day I can't figure out why that system was replaced.
I don't recall what Bluehole's reasoning for the credit shop was, if they even gave one. The bg credit system was replaced by the rng box you get if you win/lose. The token system should be just a way to make things a bit more rewarding for the winners. The boxes as rewards are just so bad that it's easy for the token shop to outshine it.

We will be getting the rep shop patch like we get every ktera patch but I doubt it's coming soon. We're several months behind ktera and so it's just a matter of time before it gets here. I prefer the credit system, too but only if the weekly cap is raised.
I'd want the rabbit. This isn't a bad idea
And I'd just ditch the health potions and stuff, they're easier to get via the BG vanguards anyway. Not sure what to put to replace them, however.
Just tossing the idea out there but

Bgs used to give etching materials. What if etching mats replaced the pots and stuff? Also wondering about adding the different tiers of etching mats to help with t4 etching crafting.

Yes I agree with OP.

also gold or silver talent jackpot then everyone would be queing.

Maybe an increase in coins awarded to winners and a single coin as consolation prize for loser side?

Anyway, I dont think this coin system is a bad idea, it is similar to previous bg credits where you could chose what to spend your credits for.

By design, the jackpot reward system doesn't have a way to give a participation prize to the loser. Being perfectly honest, I personally prefer it that way. If you want the extra prize, work for it. I ended up with 42 tokens today with 19 games played and 16 of those being wins. Earning the tokens isn't really the issue here. I do agree there should be some adjustments in the shop.
There was a time many years ago when you were able to queue a full team vs another full team. It'd be nice to have that back, mostly to use for player run pvp events.

Would it be possible to get this option in a future build?
In the EnMasse Discord CobaltDragon announced that there would be a strongbox jackpot soon. He was looking for feedback and thought to cross post it here since not everyone checks discord and may have feedback to give.

@ElinUsagi If you took this screenshot today, we finished our large and medium fwc g quest during last 3-4 hrs. There must be something wrong on your character, or the screenshot is a fake.

The screenshot is not fake but If is not thanks to your FWC Discord group I think this BG would not pop up at all outside the hours you play.

One year ago I used to have queves of 30 minutes outside peak hours (not to far from peak hours) but never this bad.

In the case of other people being able to pop while you're in queue, it's probably bugged for you. If it doesn't pop during the active bg time you should try to cancel it and then requeue. No idea why it's a thing.
I remember it being really fun in the past. Hope it can be brought back.

Healing would be really boring. I like being able to dps on my priest. It's no change from the other content you solo grind like gg, iod, pit...

I think this content will only create bad habits on healers more than any other classes.

This kind of event should give points to healers for healing, keeping buffs, debuffing the enemies, ressurecting, cleansing more than their dps.

Tanks should get points for keeping agro, blocking/perfec blocking, enraging enemies, debuffing.

I know that is hard to get a good raid from random people but, common with this only bad habbits are created for the support/tank roles.
I mean after doing RKEM, HH, FWC, Skyring, and whatever else I end up doing I'm not sure I'd be too worried about "bad habits" LOL

This is really simple solo content and a healer isn't required for it. If I were to raid up with my guild I'd be alt tabbed while throwing estars and triple nem. I'm glad it's something engaging and can be challenging if you're trying to rank for kicks. It's a break for the usual healing and it's something I can do damage in while on my main. I dont miss out on gear exp because I had to swap to a dps.

I guess they could make healing be an option for people who are just completely incompetent though.

I have the same problem from the EU and many players are leaving to eutera from this lag. Enmasse should consider moving away from both zayo/savvis.

IS there a third option? I think there is only the two. Which is part of the problem, really. If there is another option, does anyone know what company it is?
I doubt there is since we've only swapped between the two over the past few years. Unfortunately routing issues are really complicated and are not really under eme's control. All they can do is submit a ticket with the service provider and hope that corrects the issue. This is why it's important to submit diags. They cant really approach their provider saying "It's lagging" and leave it at that.

It is a pain to sort out lag and sometimes I'm not sure what can be done about it outside of maybe using a vpn. Look at NA, Comcast users suffer every night but that's outside of Eme's scope since it's an issue with an ISP.
They removed the credit system. You no longer earn credits from those factions.
The low key ads for a 3rd party program that is against the rules in this are interesting.

They are looking beyond January. They're just also being a bit vague about what the future plans are. Maybe they'll take it as an opportunity to run the double gear xp, tera rewards, and other vg related events. It is clear that they dont intend to keep the 2x vg rewards up all the time anymore so not knocking your feedback about that, just pointing out it's being replaced with something.

No one learns that there's not two sides. There's multiple, more than two.

No one learns (usually the same people over and over who are completely ignorant) that counterpoint (and others like myself) aren't EME White Knights, and they call them out for being so (which they should get banned for in the first place for call-outs).

It's threads like this that actually partially contribute to the death of the game, and honestly probably make EME staff not want to login to deal with the stupidity and toxicity found in this forum community. Geez. How many times must this be explained before anyone actually learns their lesson?

In my opinion, the post is justified. Eme has clearly given up on Tera PC and has dumped all of their eggs into the Tera console basket. RIP Tera PC.

If they had given up on Tera PC why did they put time into running the partnership/promotion?

I never said that I didn't think charging 50$ for a level 60 scroll wasn't a rip off; it's also pay-to-win in my opinion, and adding the $15 deal incentivised experienced players to purchase the pass for the sole purpose of re-selling the level 60 scroll on the trade broker as it has a better conversion ratio than gold:emp. You're aimlessly grabbing at straws to keep your 'counterpoints' going now. I'm out. pce

Your argument completely collapsed. At first it was "intended to take advantage of new/uninformed players" but now you're saying it "incentivised experienced players to purchase the pass for the sole purpose of re-selling". But if experienced players bought it to resell, they certainly weren't being "tricked" by the level 58 items you were complaining about originally. And if it's getting a "better conversion ratio than gold:emp" then doesn't that mean it actually does have value to people? But I thought you said "level 60 scrolls are worthless as people can easily level to 60 in a day"? So people think something worthless is a good broker investment? And now you're saying it's pay-to-win? If it's so worthless that it isn't even worth $15 (when it includes 15 days Elite), then what the heck are they winning...?

If you want some defensible "EME is greedy" complaints, how about these:

1) Cash shop prices have been increasing steadily.
2) Lootboxes don't have posted odds.
3) Lootboxes don't have failure caps.
4) Lootbox runner-up items are now mostly untradable, making it harder to get the item you want on the broker.
5) EME appears to be gradually phasing out account mounts.
6) The TERA Rewards Emporium, which is supposed to reward cash shop purchasers, has horribly out-dated rewards.

Don't just virtue signal to all the disgruntled people who will say everything and anything EME does is bad because EME is bad and they should feel bad. Make a real case. There's plenty to choose from.
I mean even if they were looking at reasonable things to complain about you could add to the list:

7) PvP Jackpot Rewards are terrible
8) Lack of communication and transparency when it comes to events not working out for w/e reason. (Santa event)
9) Endgame Dungeons not being profitable
10) Lack of pvp events/tourneys
11) Unannounced changes to dungeon loot. (Silver talent nerf)

But sure, go on. Set it off about a one day promotion that other than being poorly worded was not a bad deal. :)
Circuits is the CM for Closers but looks like she's stepping in to help out.

The eme staff is usually on vacation and inactive this time of year but it would be nice to have someone around to say when plans change and communicate with the players.

The Level 60 Scroll normally costs 4995 EMP and includes no gear.
30-days of Elite normally costs $14.95 (although this is 15 days, so cut it in half).

So, the claim that "this would run you well over 5,500 EMP" is met even without counting the gear at all. It's 74% off the price of the scroll + Elite, with gear thrown in as a bonus.

The "high-end gear" is compared to the nothing you normally get with a scroll (so you can kill your bears with level 1 gear?). I think you're getting hung up over nothing, to be honest.

I think the only problem with getting a lv 60 scroll to play right away is that...you don't have any gold for the skills. Like, if you included in the pack an emerald or two, that sure helps.

When you use a level 60 scroll, you get all the level 60 skills automatically. And then if you do the FoA storyline, you should get enough gold for the skills at level 61 and on.

??? no you dont. Do you even play this game ?

Level 60 Scroll
Upon use, this character instantly levels up to level 60 and gains all applicable skills. Not usable by characters level 60 and higher. No gold is granted with this item.

What does have to do knowing or not what that item do with playing the game?

Oh, right, you only make post to attack EME or users that don't share your hatred against EME.

Since you just called me out for no reason, enjoy the report. Another among many ! :)
Yes, you learn all the level 60 skills when you use the scroll. I just tested to confirm.

Accusing? Asking a question is accusing?

accusing: adjective
(of an expression, gesture, or tone of voice) indicating a belief in someone's guilt or culpability.

Calm yourself down next time before posting :+1: dont think A PC member should be using that kind of language

Yikes, man. I mean, Counterpoint was right, you were wrong. Do you even play this game? LOL

On topic, I think the wording for the gear is odd/wrong for sure. I get they're trying to help move new players through the story quest but I would have phrased it differently. I think if they run an event/promotion like this again they should consider using gems and glyph boxes, at the very least. If they're trying to bring in new players would be nice to see a small boost given to them. You may get all your 60 skills but I'm not sure you have enough gold to buy the level 61 skills unless you are further into the story quest. I usually just run SA when I level so I've forgotten exactly how much gold you earn as you progress. :c
Going off one of the weekly streams we had recently, the next event will be for new years/eve. Seandynamite said something like "Be sure to be logged in before your timezone hits new years" or something. If I have time I'll dig around for it.

It's well known pvp is in a [filtered] state. A lot of adjustments need to be made by bhs and eme for things to significantly improve. This has been brought up by Lucky and myself numerous times. Not sure the need to question counterpoint about it.

I'd agree it was somewhat off topic, I apologize. But it is interesting to see other opinions other than just the two PC members that pvp. As I'm sure you're very aware yourself, the PC isn't not a homogenous group that share the same ideas. It was also more as an example to "EME caring."
It's not really different pc opinions that get in the way anymore. We can agree that pvp tournaments should make a come back and that pvp rewards are lackluster at best. Like Counterpoint said there's office politics and man power that needs to be sorted out before any serious change can be made. The unfortunate truth is bhs doesn't seem interested in promoting pvp content at all even with other regions asking for more. We're not stuck with "does eme care" with this one. It's a "does bhs care" issue which is pretty frustrating on its own.

Removed a couple comments from this thread about removing the VG merchant. Please don't start rumors. Revamping a store doesn't mean it's being removed.

Well to be fair, that is EME's fault for sending that message about "updating" the federation bills store but then completely turning around and canning that idea just to close it. How can you blame anyone when you say with the word "update" to the VG shop to not be taken with a grain of salt?
Not sure how you can say the vg shop, something that you gain credits for by playing the game, is similar to the fed bill shop.

The only way to regularly gain fed bills was to log in every day. Its easier to relocate items to a system that already has ways to get more of that currency in the game (like fashion coupons which drop from bams and stuff) instead of wasting time to find a way to include yet another currency into the loot table.

To say eme is going to do away with all the shops is a childish overreaction.
Since the game isn't complete, they may not want to have people showing off an unfinished product. Would be nice to have the option to stream it though.
There is a technical test coming later this month, emails about it went out to a group of players pooled from beta sign ups. A much larger beta test is planned for next year.
That is really unlucky. :/

Given how garbage the chance rates are, it is probably best to find an emp buyer and then use the gold to buy one off the tb. It might be more of a hassle but at least you get what you want.
I'm not rich enough to be kami. :c
There are no plans for a server merge before the end of the year.
Tera EU actually made a madeshift Alice Dress. Granted it was just a blue colored parlor maid outfit but at least its better then the middle finger we got. It also proves Gameforge has some control over the games costume content.
That dress actually caused a lot of outrage because EU sorta misled the community about what dress it was. I dont think a poorly made knockoff is an improvement.

I really like the eu event and it'd be nice to see something like that set up here. Unfortunately I think eme is short staffed. They're already down a person since Halrath moved to a different game. Once they're able to fill in everything hopefully we'll be able to see an improvement.

This is a much cooler thread than I thought it would be from the title. TY to everyone sharing their memories.

I miss reputation quests/credits, and achievements counting toward laurel from leveling quests and special events. The day they took those away I dropped two ranks!

I often wished for an update to the reputation system to make it relevant again. BUT...

I brought this up a long time ago before the gear revamp and asked if they couldn't put feedstock or something in those shops to update them. I guess it's just too old of a system to be updated. :c

Art appreciation isnt the same as setting a price.

Let me explain something very basic that you seem to be unable to understand.

Art prices are set at what the artist is willing to accept and the consumer is willing to pay. If no one was commissionin the artist then maybe the price is too high or some other factor but that is up to the artist to decide.
As an oil painter and someone who is about to graduate with a fine art degree I can really appreciate the amount of ignorance being blasted by @PhoenixKiss

Mixing the combat system of Tera with massive amounts of content with a game such as WOW, appears to be too large of a hurdle for developers to take.
BHS cycles through developers like crazy seems to be part of the issue. There's a lot of content that's removed and cant/won't be updated because the team that put it together isn't there anymore and the current team can't figure out or won't take the time to update the old code. When eme sent a request to bhs to make mchm extreme mode that was pretty much the reply they got. "It's too old, can't fix it." It'd be nice to see some of the old events and dungeons brought back but I don't see it possible with how bhs seems to operate.

One of my favorite old events was blast from the past since it was a fun way to kill time while helping new players level. It's unfortunate something like that can't be brought back into the game.
There used to be a low level dungeon that was really pretty. It had dragons in it. I don't remember the name or details other than that.

Temple of Tomerity was a dungeon that gave the first set of uncommon glyphs. The party took turns soloing bams.

Sirjukas Gallery was the second dungeon that gave uncommon glyphs. You had to do some strange but fun mechanics, like jumping, to earn points.

Nexus was laggy open world content that spawned mobs and bams you killed for credit. They also added nexus traverse which gave enchantment materials.

Manayas Core hm is the hardest dungeon in the game. Being able to run it early on in VM1 was very rewarding since weapons and stuff dropped there which sold for a lot of gold.

Fane of kaprima and Balders temple were both endgame dungeons at one point with a hardmode. Clearing nm gave you the sleeper gear set. Clearing the hm gave you dreamkeeper.

I think that's about it from when level 60 was the cap. I think the only other thing worth mentioning is alliance which was removed for skycastles.

How are players so surprised when Seandynamite mentioned removing the shop was a possibility in early November? https://forums.enmasse.com/tera/discussion/comment/187758#Comment_187758

I think moving the items to the fashion coupon shop is a good move. It removes a shop that was awkwardly added to the game and consolidates cosmetic items together. The fed bill shop items will still be accessible and easier to get for new players since it's faster to earn fashion coupons than fed bills.

I think it would be good if that wont be temporally thing and they should remove fed and fashio shops from the game. Instead of them add their stuff and new stuff in Vanguard shops.
I don't mind the fc shop since they drop from bams and stuff. If the vg shop was easier to update than the fc shop I could see why eme would want to consolidate there. I do wonder what the plans are for the fed bill items down the road since like you said it's temporary. I don't think those items will get removed but where do they think is a good permanent home for them?

"We'll have more information about the Technical Test next week. The test will be small in scope, since the game is still in development and has a few known issues, so if you don't receive an invite don't be discouraged. We plan to have a much wider beta early next year."

The maint was to fix an issue with the elin gunner box. There may be an announcement about the fed bills soon™.
The dyeable Elin Swat Uniform from the Elin Garment box is not tradeable
@spacecats @Halrath

Another problem, it seems the elin gunner box is account based. That means if you created your elin gunner, then claimed the item from item claim, didn't like how your elin looked, and remade it you will not get another box upon recreation.

Is this intended? Halrath's previous leveling event involving catalysts did not do that. The boxes are not bankable so they should not be account based.
Probably account based because of the free elite. Not sure if you can get a new box

Yet another thread about this.
EME keeps saying no, but everyone wants it super bad. =__=

doesn't matter. EME is superb at not listening to us; their ear protection game is always on point.

It makes sense to not sell it while it's bugged though. This is an item that would have been in a loot box so, unless you're really lucky, you are looking at spending quite a bit of cash on a product that doesn't function as it should. Some players might be okay with the weird behavior of the dress but if you're paying a premium for an item then it should work properly.

I guess it just strikes me as odd that they care so much when they regularly release costumes that outright replace femani legs and have no tail holes for the elins, leading to seriously horrific clipping issues with the right tails. They're perfectly OK with doing that, they're fine with the scarves that regularly shoot off into infinity, but this is where they draw the line? I don't buy it, sorry.
They've published things that changed how castanics look, too. If the clipping looks too weird, I dont buy it but it's not really a bug. Clipping and femani legs are just laziness.

The only reason why the scarves stay (I'm guessing, it is odd to allow one but not the other) is because the bug isn't consistent and you can get it to stop by greeting the person wearing it or having them take it off and put it back on. The dress is consistently buggy. It doesn't matter what you do, it still goes all over the place.

No idea. I've never seen the dress, or heard of the bug, but that's from Sean himself saying it won't be made available in our region. Apparently it's at least on the same level as some of the scarfs in-game, and could possibly be a lot worse.

here's a video of it

Oh, didn't notice you had already posted something. A bit disappointing, was hoping to see something really weird.

There are other videos that are more obvious but yeah basically the skirt bugs out like crazy when another player is next to them. It has other odd things it does, too. They tried to make the skirt "cloud like" but messed up completely. After it was released eme asked BHS to fix the dress so it could be sold in our region. It just isn't a priority for the developer.

I agree with eme on this one though. The dress isn't worth selling as it is.

What type of feature could they add to elite to make it feel more valuable?

Few years ago, being elite you had a monthly gift, either a mount or a costume, etc, something worth between 15-25k gold ingame. I'd say nothing we get on the elite perks today worth as much as it did back then.

Yeah, I remember when they had the monthly gift. It was usually a mount or costume. They used to do those elite gem bags, too. If I'm remembering this right the daily gift box was what replaced the monthly gift. It's suppose to equal the same amount of value without tanking the tb price of a cash shop item.

To be honest, unless if you get a felicity, then the daily gift kinda sucks.

I wasn't very impressed with the change back then. Ccb and stuff are pretty common in our region so I just don't see the value in it. If you have decent luck then it's been better recently. I'm not sure about bringing back the monthly gift since I remember there were threads of pissed off players every month complaining about it.

So, best guess, as we approach that 4-8 week deadline he gave us we should be hearing if there's still hope of a 2017 beta soonish. I think no news means they're not at a point to give a date for console beta and they probably want to be 100% sure before saying something.
There was/is an issue with authentication that could be causing the problem. You may need to open a support ticket if you continue to have trouble buying emp through steam.

That's right. It'll put the skill book in your item claim on the account items tab. You'll be able to claim the skill book as many times as you want but it is not tradeable.
