it may be a temp ban, but depending on how bad the issue in game they had with someone else, it could be a perm ban.

I will ask it a different way, what did your friend do that they got banned over? there had to be a reason or they wouldn't have gotten banned. did they buy gold from gold sellers? did they get caught using 3rd party software? were they causing someone grief in the game? were they caught in an area that they weren't supposed to be in? there is a reason why they got banned so if we know why they got banned, maybe we can tell you if it is a perm or temp ban.

There is no "they" here anymore :)

"they" are all on dischord or other social media sites except the official eme site. also "they" don't care anymore about us, or so it seems.

what did your friend do that was in question of them getting banned in the first place?

we have only 1 server for the entire north America player base for ps4, and look around at how many people you see. it may seem like a lot of people afk in velika and highwatch and the few running around in the other places, but again, its for all of north America, so it really isn't that many playing on the ps4. also with the cash shop in ps4 lacking so many things, it worries me that they don't feel like putting too much money in the ps4 tera, and is just waiting on it to finish dying off. I could be wrong.

you can also get free mounts through achievements like sparky and the black panther mounts are easy to get and also lumbertown sells the other horse mounts in the stable.

From what I've heard, the quests to get the black panther are tedious. The temp Sparky lasts less than a month, and from my memories the permanent one is through more achievements. Just because you can get some slow mounts by working for them doesn't negate the fact that Tera's mounts are ridiculously expensive and simply not worth the cash. You get a free flying mount, but it's not that great looking and people like to have different mounts.

The easiest way to get a mount is to fish on more than one account and save up gold. Depending on how many accounts you have (you can log into 5 through the launcher) it may take you a few weeks or so. Really, unless you have cash to burn or love running dungeons, it's probably best to move on. I mean what's the point in buying a mount or cosmetics for a game you're just afk fishing in anyways? You can also do Vanguards, but those really only give good gold if you have some alts to farm those with.

sparky is listed as a tempory mount but it doesn't go away. ive had mine for years. the black panther is a little tedious, but they are free, and Sheldon only costs like 10k gold

Maybe if you leave it in your bar, but mine went away, so not sure how that works. Either way, they are seriously slow mounts and not much better than the free horse mount already given. I surely wouldn't put them up to justify the horrific prices EME asks for mounts in the shop. You have to pay thirty bucks just to get a flying mount. You can play a lot of other games out there with a longer lifespan left to them and get more for $30 than you can here. That's for sure.

There are two achievements that give Sparky, one is temp one is permanent.

the sparky mounts I have were the ones where you go to every city and town and the monuments and I have had them for years now

I don't hate eme, but I don't respect them either. they never really listened to our complaints, and many times they would ban people in the forums if they spoke out against something. blaming everything on bhs or giving us an excuse like you would a toddler didn't help things. also they stopped being active on the official eme forums and moved to other places for us to find out information. I didn't like spacecats nor his attitude at times, but he at least was in the forums instead of depending on player council members ( I have no problems with counterpoint, he has done a better job than our cm's ). I know there are rumors going around about maybe a tera 2 , but I have to say if it is a real thing, I hope we get someone else running it for na. someone that will listen to the players hardcore and casual players alike. eme was great, but it seems like they just stopped caring over the past few years. I hope they change and go back to caring again and then maybe people will not hate them and come to respect them again.

im not justifying the crazy cost of the mounts, I was just adding to what counterpoint said about getting free to low cost mounts. im thankful I got my account bound flying dragons when they first came out. I could justify the cost of those, but I cant wrap my head around paying more than the cost of an account bound mount for a character bound one. the only reason games can do this is because people buy the over priced stuff. just look at the new modern warfare 300 dollar characters.

go to the stable where the people are standing in line at the big soup pot in lumbertown

you can also get free mounts through achievements like sparky and the black panther mounts are easy to get and also lumbertown sells the other horse mounts in the stable.

I was curious to know if there are any role players in the ps4 server. we used to have them in the pc server, but I had to start all over in ps4 due to my pc dying on me, and it will be a while .... a long while before I can get another pc to play on. if there are any role players on ps4 let me know either here or in pm. thanks in advance.

I will say this in their defense, they need to make money to keep this free to play game open, but if you are not happy, let your purse or wallet do the talking. I know people will defend eme to their dying breath and say something like we need to keep buying whatever they are selling to keep the game open or they will shut it down.

Dude, I don't want to sound rude or something, but I rather to see the game dead than something like that, I mean, we should ask ourself and say " does it really worth the money that we are paying to keep playing Tera?" I would say no, but hey that's me.

its not being rude, I myself haven't spent a dime in years due to them not selling account bound mounts and making them all expensive character bound mounts. one single mount is more than the account bound dragon mounts were. I for one let my purse do the talking because I haven't been too happy with their prices, communication from staff, and so on. I feel like I more than paid enough for this game several times over in the emp I have bought, and if they did shut down, I can say I had a good time.

they wont lower the prices as long as people are willing to pay whatever to have the latest and greatest item to show off in velika or highwatch. why do you think they removed fashion coupons from dropping from bams? it makes me feel like they didn't want us to have a way to obtain free costumes. I may be wrong, but I doubt it. on pc I have over 10k fashion coupons, but I had to switch over to ps4 cause im waiting to save up for a new pc, so I had to start all over again, and the prices are outrageous on ps4 with not a good selection to choose from.
I have said it so many times, if you are not happy, let your purse or wallet do the talking. that is with game companies, grocery stores, places to eat, and so on. that is the only way they will take you serious.

first off, eme quit the forums a long time ago. the player council members are the ones moderating the forums now, so your post is basically falling on deaf ears. I feel you on this though. I quit buying emp due to them stopping selling account bound mounts so that they could make even more money. I will say this in their defense, they need to make money to keep this free to play game open, but if you are not happy, let your purse or wallet do the talking. I know people will defend eme to their dying breath and say something like we need to keep buying whatever they are selling to keep the game open or they will shut it down.
the prices wouldn't be so high if people weren't buying the stuff, so it seems like no matter how high eme sells items at, there will be people buying it no matter the cost.
I would love to see the video that you have on youtube, so if you want to, post it here or pm me the link.

Buying loot boxes in the first place was a HUGE mistake. EME just made easy money from your lootbox purchases.

eme has made a butt load of money from everyone's lootbox purchases, and that is why they are still for sale and the rng is so bad. I think everyone here has gotten burned by lootboxes at some point in time. I don't think they are worth the risk, but those with money to burn, it doesn't bother them. also the sale of these lootboxes and character bound mounts only have made eme loads of money and that money is what is keeping the game free to play and open for business. whenever people quit buying stuff from the store, the game will shut down. so thank you to all of you that continue to buy emp. I did for a long time until they quit selling account bound mounts.

@ExParte said:
Yes -- but why? It's counter-intuitive, wastes time, and is extremely frustrating and inconvenient. What were the designers/developers thinking when they made this the default action? Is there some advantage that I haven't discovered yet to being forced back to channel 1 every time I use a portal?

I feel like one of the reasons they did this is due to people generally all hang out on channel one, so when you default back to channel one, you are among other people and maybe will interact with each other more since this is a mmorpg.

thank you for this guide and thanks for the effort that you put into this for us

@Lingyi said:
Fashion coupons no longer drop from BAMs. Rather, they drop from events now. For example, the log-in event currently going on, gives some.

The Tank Leveling Event that starts soon may give them as reward, so keep an eye on that.

thanks for answering the question for me

it does it by default

where are the fashion coupons dropping at? I killed 160 brutal orisks today on the island of dawn and none dropped for me. do they still drop and if so where and which bams drop them? thanks

I did over 60 island of dawn bams today after hitting level 65....the brutal ones, and not one fashion coupon dropped. my question is, are they dropping and where to farm them if they are. I leveled my character from 20 to 60 doing bams, and none dropped. I leveled from 63 to 65 just doing bams, and none dropped. im not angry, im just wanting to know where to get them and if they are dropping, how bad is the drop rate.

Tera online is not that great now. Every new class is a little girl people try to claim is 500 or somthing and outlaw is gone and now players are leaving.
I played tera back 4 years ago with a guild. since them all 50 players of my guild have quite. I use to love pking people and running from people trying to pk me

my first character which was a warrior before i quite i use to hunt players in the areas around town. and i use to get killed alot while i was grinding quests I got mad sometimes but that was part of the fun. the excitement of being able to be killed at anytime. it was the only reason i come to play tera because not many othere games had good open world pvp.

Between the p2w items the lolis with no pants that pedos play as and the decline in players tera is dying.

but id like them to make a new server.
In this server it bring back the old outlaw system and get ride of all classes since the reaper making no gender lock again and wont have any p2w items.

this would be a classic tera pvp server .

according to the lore, elins are 100s of years old. also by the way you are stating things, if you play as an elin, that makes you a pedos, no matter if you are a real live female like some of us that do play, and I guess you would say that people that play as poporis are in to beastiality. so I guess if you are a male that plays a male character then that makes you gay, and if you are a female that plays as a female, that makes you a lesbian, so your argument states that you are into whatever character that you play as. this is what you are saying. I imagine many people will say that you are wrong. I will let you in on a little secret as long as you don't tell anyone else.......this is only a game and not real life. shocker I know, but now that you know the secret to tera, hopefully your gaming experience will become much better

there may not be that many new players running bol. im level 50 and haven't set foot in one dungeon yet. I haven't ran one in years on p.c., and I doubt that I will see one until I hit level 65 on ps4. many people don't run them until 65

@Dustya61 said:
Same here as well. I was only given the option for Darken. Oregon, USA if that is at all relevant.

I found out there is only one server. my friend plays on darken on the east coast. I was wondering why the server had a lot of players, I guess all of na tera plays on darken

@BellaFe said:
It was working for me after the update

they are giving fashion coupons on ps4 now?

@Pvpness said:
@PXJFKYMAEH @Xenomaren Agreed completely, I think right now being adults and people who like you both said are the core of the game.. We can just bring this up IN HOPES that someone that is a game master, community manager, literally anyone who has forms of communication to get this feedback out. At this point the state I see things is .. we've started not caring anymore and that's a really bad sign for the game, because when we start caring less eventually we are going to find an alternative.

yeah...like tera 2 lol

I'm not sure why, but this is old news/rumors from a few years ago that just recently resurfaced. Unfortunately, there's no new information to confirm any of the old info about this, so at this point we just don't know anything more or less than the same old leaked art, vague info about old plans, and speculation.

Yes, I know this is an old thing, but I guess they are making it relevant with the announcement of multiple mmos such as Crimson Desert, Path of Exile ... it doesn't hurt anyone to think that maybe "Blue Hole Studios or Krafton" is working in a Tera 2.

they don't need to work on a tera 2, they can keep working on tera 1 and make it better and save most of their money. if they wanted to, they could make tera the number 2 mmorpg out there....seems like wow will still be number 1 but I cant see why

because more people buy the cute elin outfits than any other race. its all about the money. they have to pay the bills and elins are little cash cows

are we going to get fashion coupons for the ps4?

thanks for letting us know

do the ps4 server go down every day? so far it seems to go down every day, is this normal for ps4?

will they ever have account bound mounts for ps4 @Exipheus ?

@asianfarmer said:
CS used to pop daily back in 2015. Took less than 10 mins to find one.

So what is different now?

Is it because the rewards are meagre ?

They need more incentive to make players queue for it. Just change a number.

20,000 gold for winning CS? Or certain type of boxes/mats ?

one of the differences now is due to cs being level 65 and above. back when it was level 30 and above, you didn't have to wait long for it to open. at the longest was maybe 30 minutes to get in. when they changed it to level 65 and above only, it took awhile for it to open. once people started mass kickings due to people not playing as expected by the others, then people just stopped playing with those toxic players. then people started leaving the game as a whole in huge numbers, which in turn meant even longer wait times for cs to open cause there weren't as many people playing cs.

when I play tera on ps4, I only have one listed and its called " darken " pve. are there any more servers for ps4 depending on your location in the united states, or is it just the one?

maybe if they brought back level 30 cs like it used to be, maybe it will open more. I would rather play with newbies at least once an hour instead of waiting 2 days for it to open with 65s and above

thanks. I hope they will come out with them soon for ps4

are there any account bound mounts in the store for ps4? if so, which ones are they cause I haven't seen any

@WolfangScar said:
To be fair, you DONT speak for everyone. Me personally im not a fan of that costume.

Side note, im really glad to see the rogue set, however unless i can find it in broker at a fair (lol) price ill be unable to get it. Pretty sick irl, so I cant get out to get a psn card. So just me thanking the eme team for re releasing the set, and if I cant afford it via gold, I hope those that can get it enjoy it!

it will probably go on sale during the black Friday sales at the end of this month. hopefully you can get it then....im hoping I can as well

my favorite place will always be the original island of dawn

You gave an outlandish claim with no evidence to support it - and given the amount of XP needed just to get from 65 to 66, yes, you saying you went from 1 to 70 in a single week with no events active or caiman portals, playing 5hrs a day qualifies as outlandish - and are trying to call people lazy for having the gall to challenge you on that.

If someone saying "Wait, you really managed to pull that off?!" is enough to make you want to quit a game, who is it that's really crying (to say nothing of the usual "u guise just want things handed to u lol" bollocks...)?

Saying you don't want everything handed to you is what's bull. Also never said I was leaving tera just leaving na because na has gone to hell and the only players who remain are a giant group of toddlers who want everything handed to them. The end.

so basically this is still a farewell post, and those aren't allowed, so this thread should be closed

tera 2012 : people doing daily quest for get gold ,limit of 20 quest , few end game dungeon , all bank full of fodder for upgrade set and some people make guild just for a guild bank for put more fodder , epic rng for get masterwork and next for get +12. not fly mounts available , no free teleport . no pvp content .
tera 2019 : eme increase slot for bank to 8 , pet with 5 slot , pocket with slot , more daily quest (60) more fodder and items , in new zone need buff for fly , more rng , now dont need go to dungeon for get set end game . no pvp content.

we did have pvp content at one time when I started back in 2013, we had cs for level 30 and above. we also had alliance territories. alliance got replaced with civil unrest...joy...not, and cs went to level 65 because people were crying about the newbies and unskilled players. that's where I learned how to play my classes. as far as making a guild for extra bank space, I had 2 guilds just for that purpose, for fodder and stuff. i would love to see a classic server before fate of arune patch, before level 65 only cs, back when we had alliance territories, back when we had original island of dawn. the game was so much better then. the only thing that was good in the past few years was the addition of flying mounts, but then they added invisible barriers so that you couldn't explore anymore. if given the choice between what we have now and adding a classic server, i think the classic server will be just as full as the other 2 servers combined once word got out.

@PP597W94LA said:
beastmaster?
another exclusive class for elin

make it popo exclusive lol

I would think that using magic in general be it white or dark magic would leech the color from your hair and turn it white. people think of good magic as the color white and the color black associated with dark magic from the whole good and evil concept. kinda like the good guys wore a white cowboy hat and the bad guys wore black cowboy hats. pertaining the the game of tera, your hair doesn't change due to using magic, nor does the hair color represent the type of magic being used.

@Ximinott said:

@counterpoint said:
I think we need some context for the question. Do you mean in the world in TERA? If so, no magic (black or white) changes hair color in the game.

Do you mean, in common fantasy fiction (e.g. Tolkien and others)? If so... this isn't really a TERA-related question at the least, and probably depends on each individual author's world setting.

I mean in fantàsy. Every universe of fantàsy,this includes tera, what is... a fantasy game.

you might want to post this in the role play section

@SageWindu said:
That seems a little too gimicky for a game like TERA. What do you do until you can summon your pets?

Addendum: Also, do you control your pets' skills or are those pets completely autonomous? Can you heal them? Can you summon multiple pets? The list of issues could be endless.

what I meant was for all classes to be able to use these pets. maybe use pet potions on them to heal them, they would be autonomous , only summon one at a time. they would be similar to mystics thralls.

I suggested a couple of years ago something similar to this, where you kill "x" amount of the same type of bam, and then you get a pet of that bam that you can level up and sic them on monsters and maybe pvp against each other and maybe enter them in bamerama. glad someone else is thinking the same way

@PP597W94LA said:
plus i think it creates a server only for "serious player" (server where only those who spend money enter)
would send that "serious players" waste their time with "new players" who do not spend money on the game

they could always create a training server, where everyone there starts at level 65, not able to buy cosmetics, the dungeons are always open and it is a tutorial to help people learn the dungeons. then you can go back to your normal servers with your regular characters and be able to run with the elites

@ SageWindu....well said

go kill the level 45 basilisks or go to frontera and kill the ovalisks to get the weapon shards

I would spend all my time on the classic server. just imagining original island of dawn, alliances, campfires, and so on. maybe we could rp there as well. hopefully have level 30 and above cs, and possibly nexus again and channel works, kezils gorge, shattered fleet, no invisible barriers,...
what would be really great about the classic server for enmasse would be people buying cosmetics and mounts.

I would still like to see them bring back the original island of dawn. even if its just a safe zone to hang out in

Loot
Get rid of tokens: it removes the value of the dropped items from bosses.
Get rid of soulbound in most items: this adds value to items, sense they can be traded in trade broker.
Guests should give equipment less often as a reward and more money and xp: This makes the equipment drops more valuable.
Dropped loot's stats should be always randomized instead of giving them in a state where the player gets to choose them themselves: This adds value to the items and improves economy.
Loots dropped from bosses should be more randomized so the more rare items would actually have some value when getting them. This also adds value to the items and improves economy.
Give players with higher experience a chance to grind the lower level dungeons for the loot drops. This gives players more stuff to do and is another way to make money.
Stop handing out random consumables to everyone so much. People rarely use them.

So...restore Tera to how it was in 2015?

2013 or 2014 would be better

are we ever getting a classic server? I know at one point they were talking about it. if eme has talked to bluehole or whatever powers that be, has there been any word on it? I for one would love to play on the classic server before the foa patch.
a few years ago, people in the forums were crying about a gold sink....be careful what you wish for.
cs has been pretty much hard to get into ever since they made it level 65 only. if they would bring it back for level 30 and above again, then you would be able to get in again fairly quick. if nothing else, have a level 30 and above cs for those needing the experience and gear, and then have a separate cs for the pro's. they could also bring back alliance and make it where you can earn there as well. so what if people are feeding there, just don't have the masks or mounts to win in there anymore, and its not like we haven't had it for a long time now.
I know it will never happen, but it would help lower levels and less geared people a lot.
i miss the original island of dawn also. it was a much better starting area than babysitting island, and you could have fun hanging out helping newbies, and role playing. as far as things changing and sometimes not for the better, titanic...I mean tera has been changing for years now and not for the better. I still enjoy the game, but I wish the would bring back what made it great.
does this pertain to women as well?
you could always start a new character in the pve server. you can get to level 65 in a day or 2. another option is if you decide to stay on your pvp server so that you wont have to start all over again with nothing, just try different times during the day or night to grind. sometimes when a special event is going on grinding areas are dead. certain times of the day and night are sometimes dead as well. they did give us plenty of warning about the server merge last year. we even had plenty of notice about names needing to be leveled up so that you wouldn't lose your name. a 3rd option would be to save up real life money to do a server transfer. other than these 3 things, I don't know what else you could do.
I have made it inside the whale, but its hollow. I think back in the early days of tera the skywhale had a part to play in the game, but now its just something to look at like the skycastles.
As a newer Tera player I think it'd be pretty cool to see Classic Tera. After seeing other regions get a Classic server. Of course, I'd have to learn a new class as the class I main wouldn't be there but I think it'd be fun to experience Tera as it used to be.

My question would be if they did make it would our mounts still work? I am sure flying mounts no longer would since they are a newer thing but I need myself my wolf mounts I love them too much.

i would love to play on a classic server with our flying mounts.

Don’t be surprised if soon costumes going to sell it by separated pieces, like armor , and you must pay for shoes, top, and pants. Not bundles anymore

don't give them any ideas lol
I would love to play on a classic server as long as we get the original island of dawn back, removal of invisible barriers that block us from getting back to baldera and velika wilds, we get to have alliance territories back , and cs back to level 30 and above.....oh and bring back campfires and the potions and crafting....basically back when tera was fun to play.
i thought it was a poor idea when they stopped making account bound mounts and only having character bound ones, but I let my purse do the talking. if im not happy, my purse isn't.
we have been trying to get bhs to listen to us for years...as in more than 2 or 3 years now, and we keep hearing the same old thing about " we will pass it on ". don't hold your breath waiting on a response from bhs or eme telling us what bhs told them about our suggestions, cause it just wont happen.

if someone was wanting to get the proxy software so they could play tera with better ping and all, where would someone go to get it?
I would like to see them bring back the original island of dawn, camp fires, alliances, access to balders temple again, alice dress, everything that used to be in the cash shop available for sale at all times for direct buy instead of it being in lootboxes, account bound items or at least account bound mounts again for all mounts even if they don't have the buffs, I would like for everyone to be able to hang out in at least one of the skycastles like the one at the castanica beach, cs from level 30 and above again, solo dungeons, blast from the past, the different horses for sale in lumbertown, elins as the transport area people again instead of the mechanical looking thingy.
well it is Halloween so bringing up a dead thread for a dying game seems fitting lol

The only things I've seen from EU that I wish we had in NA is the fact that EU has a lot more events, their cash shop is better, and their dressing room is up to date. Everyone keeps talking about how much easier it is to gear up in EU, and that's nice, but not worth me dropping my founder account and hard work in NA to start anew in a region I have no business playing in anyway. Despite how many more resources you have at your disposal, you'll have to deal with RNG anyway later on when enhancing SC+. That could also be the difference for someone in NA being able to gear themselves in full SC+ within two months or twice as long.

If BHS could do something to modify the enhancement system a bit overall so that it isn't so much of a ridiculous grind then this nonsensical back and forth between which region is better wouldn't even need to exist. Yeah EME has been making a lot of bad decisions, but GF wasn't always perfect either.

i highly doubt that anyone has deleted their characters in tera na to go to tera eu. I would be willing to bet that those that left na for eu still have their characters and items in na.
if eu has more events, better cash shop, better dressing room, and easier to gear, then how is na better? is it because our staff here is better? our players here are much more nice? not trying to cause an argument, but I would like to know your opinion on why na would be better than eu.
I don't think the main reason for people jumping over to tera eu because its better there, one of the main reasons is how eme totally ignores the na players. when they do try to make up for it, its through lootboxes and nerfed materials. when you try to have a civil discussion about stuff going on, they close and delete the posts. I think people finally got tired of it all, at least that's what I gather from reading the posts.
as I have said time after time, its their game, their rules, but when everyone leaves , then they are the kings of nothing. hopefully they will start listening to the few remaining players before the rest leave. we may be getting a few new players here and there, but keeping them is a different story. why do you think we have only 2 servers now.
that's what I meant , when the game closes or if you get banned, or if there is a server merger and you have too many characters and have to delete characters that have costumes, mounts, and so on bound to them, then you lose those thing that you paid for....meaning that we don't own anything in the game, we are just renting them until the game closes, banned, or having to delete characters.
I do feel like if they made account bound items again, then 40 dollars for anything wouldn't be so bad. it seems we are getting milked before the slaughter......so i quit saying moo until they make it worth my money to spend again.

ok I will give them that, but how many are still around at eme from back then.
with all of the swipers in the game, you would think its a dora the explorer convention lol
as long as people keep swiping for everything new that comes out, they will continue to keep selling stuff.
I just feel like eme has been charging too much for everything the past couple of years. I do like the idea of being able to buy something outright instead of lootboxes, but they need to lower their prices some.

WTB direct buy on the dyeable pixie costume
And even though people would likely have spent much more than that price if it had been in a lootbox, the number one complaint was direct buy prices were too expensive (due to "sticker shock").

I'd much rather spend 80$ buying the actual costume than 80$ at 4 chances for the costume and walking away with same trash non-dyeable costume 4 times over.

People were complaining that they were way too expensive at 4495 EMP (About $41 USD due to the buy bonus). But yeah, purely objectively speaking if you just want the costume, what you're saying would be the more logical view...

I was one of those people complaining about how much they cost. 41 dollars for 1 dress that you will never own, only renting, when I could buy 2 dresses for myself in real life. I feel like they could have been lower in price, dyable or not. 41 dollars for account bound outfits, I can see paying.
when did they ever give us the impression that we were important?

Because our community manager doesnt even play the game. This game meme'd me so hard I reinstalled WoW (dont worry I uninstalled it) and I got banned from tera EU for buying 200 dollars worth of thalers. (They wanted me to send pictures of my credit card and passport, [filtered] that)

I wouldn't send them that. that makes me feel like someone is trying to steal your id
we cant have anything in tera cause when we do, people complain that they don't like it and want it removed, and then eme/bhs listens to them and removes it. if people don't like something in the game, then they don't have to do it. people ruin it for others
its easy to let people have what isn't available anymore. kinda like your parents telling you that you can have a pet unicorn because there isn't any.
I heard they are removing it this neveruary lol

I like how you pick and chose parts of other people's replies....

Anyway,

I made a killing off selling the lust crates! Over 1 million gold and still counting!

just out of curiosity, how much did you spend on lootboxes to get 1 million gold? im not being mean, just curious

They need to reach their monthly revenue quota and the fiasco right at the beginning of October was a red flag to their wallets. Of course they'll pull this crate out of their bums. I am hardly surprised. It's pretty effective, I think. People are buying and opening crates left and right (not sure how much it amounts to, though).

So EME purposely made talents harder to get this month for the sole purpose of releasing these Lustrous Fed Crate for cash shop only to meet their October deadline?

Right? Again, almost looks like war profiteering.

I could believe that. There are a ton of ppl who has no control of spending their money in this game. It's smart, but greedy until they can figure out what to do for November. Oh right, Black Friday.

We saw it before with the new Catwhatever undies, and even before that with gem crates (of all f**king things). At this point, just put in something like Warframe's Prime Access and call it a day, sheesh.

Also, I have a feeling that Black Friday is also going to be a bust...

Yeah, this feels pretty premeditated and calculated. I'm starting to think EME is actually trying to do with Gold Talents, what GF used to do with MWA - that being, make it impossible to get in-game, and the only way to get them is the cash shop. The thing that kills me is there are people who are happily swiping their cards to support this practice.

I'm also kinda hoping the Black Friday sale is a bust - I was intending on spending a fairly inappropriate amount of money on this game to sort of commemorate coming back after a pretty long hiatus, but given everything that's happened in the last couple weeks... Black Friday sale or not, that money's either staying in my wallet or going to Gameforge considering I need character slots for my account over there I've started playing on.

the sad thing is, eme could delete everyones characters and make them have to start all over again, and bring out a new class, elin something, or sell something new or have a sale, and people will swipe their credit cards so fast that it would break the sound barrier. all those people that claimed to drop tera na to go to tera eu and said that they were finished with tera na, will be back. I highly doubt more than 5 people actually deleted their characters in tera na.
im not bashing eme nor am I fan girling them, but I do know that eme has to do what they got to do to keep the doors open and pay the bills. I also know what people have said in the past about boycotting or going on strike after the last time we had the 3rd party software thing going on which was during the 5th anniversary and people talked a good game, even had links to go to where you could join them going on strike, and then eme announced a huge sale for that week, and the strike never happened. when we called the players out on it, they were like we made our point and blah blah blah.
im not saying people are right or wrong for saying that they are going to do x or y, players need to do what they need to do as well. I just think its funny how fast people will change their minds is all.

Where are the anti-proxy sheep calling everyone a cheater now? omegaLul

its still against the tos, and you can still get your account banned due to it being cheating. it is still cheating until they change the tos. eme telling you not to get caught doesn't make it right to use cause if you do get caught they will ban you. why would they ban someone if it isn't against the tos, which is cheating.
what I don't understand is, what is the point of eme turning a blind eye when the people making the 3rd party software is going to quit supporting tera na after the 16th of this month. so enjoy your 3rd party software for the next 4 days when it expires lol.

I do remember an npc that sold the rings in the little town circle area there.

En Masse cashing-in while they can with LOOT BOXES; I wonder what will happen to games that heavily rely on whales to keep games alive.

Could we please bring back subscription MMOs? No...? >_> (I do actually know that P2P isn't sustainable for most games anymore, and F2P brings a lot of players who couldn't otherwise afford to play. I'm only being half-serious.)

Inevitably F2P seem to have no way except to get closer and closer to P2W as time goes on. TERA is still relatively balanced, but it keeps creeping forward one step at a time. In other regions they're many steps ahead.

It'd be nice to believe in the "cosmetics-only" dream, but I really feel like they ran out of creativity there, and in the end most people only needs so many costumes/mounts/etc. (Particularly now that they started with the stats on mounts, it renders the other ones basically useless...)

I definitely believe part of it is the "happy customers are happy spenders" problem (and a lot aren't happy), and I know there are other games that have found another way that works for them, but who knows. I hope the industry finds a way out of this current trap before it keeps getting worse.


how did they run out of creativity when we offered great suggestions multiple times. ktc had a thread this year asking us what we would like to see in the shop. we recently had a thread about suggestions for mounts. the thing is, they don't read the threads or if they do, they just glance over it and do nothing about it unless its to close them. for arguments sake, in case they will read this, I will give them a few ideas since they are lacking creativity... they could try to make a deal with whomever they have to and bring back the hello kitty stuff to sell not in lootboxes, they could bring out the alice dress bugs and all, they could bring back older costumes in the shop and keep all these things in there, they could make sailor moon type outfits, they could bring back and have a version of account bound mounts for all mounts like they used to, they could bring out flying wings mounts angel and demon type, a flying flying carpet mount, a flying broom mount to go with Halloween outfits, water mounts or inflatable toy water mounts, make pets that look like the bams and make them a little larger than regular pets and give them 144 slots, a flying butterfly mount, a butterfly pet, dogs and cats pets since we see them in the game in towns and all, costumes that transforms the character into looking like an enemy like a sporewalker for example, an old fashion bi plane flying mount and a tank ground mount since lore has been broken since police cars, a flying unicorn mount, bring back the ground unicorn mount, sell permant fiery halos, unity stoles, blazing unity stoles, and these are just a few things off the top of my head. so hopefully if they want to make money and if their creativity is lost or not working atm, here are just a few things they can do.
the cow goes moooo.
if they want to streamline the leveling process, then they need to start everyone off at level 65, remove the open world content, keep velika, highwatch, and the island of dawn, and just teleport to the dungeon or bg that you need to run. then maybe the game would run smoother.
this is why we need a classic server. people want to skip everything and play end game tera instead of enjoying what the game has to offer.
Yes, Jadehearts were skill books, stored for my future alts. Learned ones still work.
Another problem now is, I'm not sure how many I had on each account, somehow I don't feel to keep track of my bank and fear of things going poof.
Might have to start doing that. :/

it doesn't matter, cause according to the tos, they have the right to take everything away from you whenever they want to. kinda makes you not want to buy anything anymore sometimes.

oh...thanks for the reply.
I would love to see what the elephant mount looks like, ive never seen it before
so far eme is good at taking away from us things we earned or bought and content. I know the tos states they can remove things in game whenever they want to, but this is a bad time to be making people even more mad at the company.
maybe their wallet was fatter lol
I think eme/bhs need to listen to the player's suggestions more, and have better communication with them. eme/bhs needs to stop removing content. they should bring back alliance, pre 65 cs, original island of dawn and so on. also it would help to have rootstock more than only once a year. I think another thing that would help tera na is having a classic server before the gender locked classes, and also open all classes to all races and genders. remove ilevels to run dungeons. have pre 65 guild quests for low level playing guilds ( as jerrychow stated in a different thread ). fix their servers so that people in na can play the game without so much lag, and fix it to where others can also.
if you read the posts in the forums, you will see many good suggestions that people have made recently and over the years, but they get bogged down by people arguing with each other, that it gets over looked.
another thing would be have the eme staff hosting fun events again like before. there are only 2 servers now, so it would be much easier to do. give out permanent costumes , pets, and mounts instead of 3 day stuff. bring back all items for sale in the cash shop, old and new stuff. bring back an account bound version of all mounts again for direct buying. lower the prices on character bound mounts. 40 dollars for an account bound mount is one thing, but for a character bound one, and not even the best version of it is being greedy. have a failure cap on loot boxes. show us the percentage of lootbox jackpots. have tokens that you can use towards getting the jackpot on every fail instead of trash items.
we could write pages upon pages of ideas and suggestions on how to make tera na much better, but in the end, it comes down to eme staff to listen and implement our ideas or to actually pass them along to bhs. eme should do for us what they can, and pass along and push for us on what they cant to bhs.
the only names I lost were duplicate names on characters I had to delete for the merge, but I also lost store items as well, so I can feel your pain somewhat.
one of the things to hurt the leveling process was that many guilds didn't want players until they were level 60, and then 65. so everything got streamlined cause people cried about how long it took to level up. then after they changed the way guilds leveled up, guilds were wanting level 1 people to help level their guilds up.
that is why I would love to have a classic server, before the fate of arune patch.
