I actually was hoping to get 2 masks LOL ROFLMAO jokes one me.
the post just above yours managed to attain a mask in about 8 days

even if you took twice as long to get one and started now, that leaves plenty of time to comfortably get two
the event lasts til march 26th, the day the current seasons end and we get the lvl 70 patch
after the server merge back in september, many characters were put in a state of "name loss" similar to what you're seeing, regardless of if the name was reused or not. most of your names should be able to be reclaimed by simply attempting to rename them to their original name. if you wish, you may also be able to take this opportunity to swap some names around

the only time a name is at risk of being lost is shortly following a server merge, there is no 'removal' of inactive characters.
available for roughly 2 months because even they're aware that the server will be a ghost town after a week or two

In my opinion they should make it so that you are able to obtain the gear through pve.
the current pvp gear is completely useless in any pve scenario.

Maintaining a healthy relationship with the playerbase isn't meaningful or reason enough?

how is someone joining a weekly stream to ask "code???" over and over a relationship?

Even if they changed the pvp gear to not use golden talents, at least it was a way to earn golden talents without having to mindlessly grind bams all day.
i'm not saying it's wrong or right, i'm just pointing out what happened.
gold talents are no longer needed to enchant the new pvp gear, as they introduced new equivalents for it

silver talents are still in there because there aren't any dedicated pvp accessories other than brooch and innerwear, and so a player that pvps still needs access to them.
even if a "bracket pvp" system were to be implemented, you'd be more likely to level up to 65 having next to no idea how to level efficiently before you'd ever run into someone you could attack.

open world leveling is dead past level 20.

I'm curious why they're limiting the hours again (favoring the West coast again)?
probably because the eme hq is located on the west coast, and something like this needs to be activated and deactivated manually, as seem last time when it was turned on late.

since it's the weekend and you had prior notice, you have little excuse to not try to find the time to play during the appropriate time.

Of course not, but an old version of tera would be in the same situation as OSRS is to RS3, except that the current state of tera is actually worse than rs3
let me rephrase that then:
an old version of tera would not be anywhere near as popular enough to justify creating a server for it. the "initial hype" would be non-existent.
an old version of tera would not be anywhere near as popular as an old version of rs.

slaying crystals don't apply to other players

a common ladder defense strategy utilized nowadays is to have a zerk lower their hp and run 4 of these, which as you can see can be stacked, granting you a total of 39.6% (42% with 4x dyads) damage to all of your attacks when under 50% hp. any class is capable of utilizing these crystals here, but zerk being able to lower their hp on demand helps make it possible to keep their hp low all the time. this combined with the weak eq gear that everyone has allows them to shred just about any amount of player(s) attempting to climb.

if you're playing a mystic, one thing you may consider is dropping a few motes near the ladder to be picked up in case of a needed heal, but these players are employing a strat that doesn't work with heals.

i won't tell you how to play your class or who to heal and when, but in general at the start of a defense round in cs, it isn't worth your time to heal anyone before dropping down from inner ladders, especially if they request for no heals.
EME changed it last minute.
would you care to prove what it said prior to this? because teradevtracker has nothing and i couldn't find anything else.

just as venakri said, the teaser video mentioned a date and nothing else. that doesn't include anything about how long it would last, and after the backlash it received over messing up a few leader boards (which you can see earlier in this thread), it's completely understandable that they didn't want this second one to upset more people about it existing there.
wow so ur "everyone" now
The original advert was the same for today, New Years Day, if I remember correctly.
it started at midnight est, which is new years day in case you weren't aware

This has nothing to do with "ruin economy". The dungeon is among the few that is linked to leaderboards...
which is getting removed after the season ends, getting rid of its leaderboard history as well. ds could be treated as a proper source of talents with urf active, meaning it can have an impact on their prices.
spung wrote: »
Then there's absolutely no reason to have in PoP.
while i don't disagree, it's a small price to pay to have it available in ds. if you're capable of earning a high ranking spot without urf, you can earn it with urf too.
spung wrote: »
You can have it in GG/HH too but only through unethical means...
it can be active in gg by immediately using a movement skill to get onto the bridge and away from the spawn point, but it can also be activated by simply moving away from the spawn and relogging.

you can get the buff in hh by entering as a party, but converting the party to a raid will remove the buff. relogging could work here too? i've never tried
it's the last few weeks before ds gets removed, and the buff won't make a party suddenly able to kill queen in 1 go--skilled parties will still be able to retain their spots, while players new to ds were able to learn it in a much lower pressured environment.

even if not intentional, i thought this was one of the best little 'events' they've had in quite a while. the drops obtainable from ds is admittedly a bit on the generous side if you consider that it's much easier with urf, but it's not anywhere near something that would ruin the economy.
pie is worse than every additive, but is substantially cheaper

my advice would be to use pies for any crafts you aren't too concerned with critting on, such as darics or siglos, and then wait out the pie (or [filtered], i'm not 100% if it removes the buff atm) and use additives for pricier crafts such as diamonds
Also remember, they're not flat increases in your crit chance, they merely add to your base chance.
are you gathering this by using both an additive and a moongourd pie?

because the two do not stack, and the pie takes priority. additives, as the name implies, are actually additive, whereas the crit success from the moongourd pie is multiplicative.

tier 3 additives can be obtained by critting on a tier 2 craft. tier 4 and 5 have to be obtained from the shop made out of the old additives. you can get a master craftsman's additive from handing out your buddyup code, and having your mentor hit 65

And it forces itself everywhere, like when Im gathering and theres no one around, holy [filtered].
it limits itself to fishing spots, guardian legion zones and cuv/hh

i'm not arguing that it's not bad or anything, but there are still plenty of areas where it doesn't apply.

"watch out, bns the tera killer is coming out!"
"dont look now, here comes bdo the tera killer!"
"hey guys, bless online is gonna be the killer of tera!"
probably a precaution to players filing reports about getting "scammed" by buying a single bait for 20k on broker.
it's at the very bottom of the 'game' tab, but unfortunately it forces itself on whenever you're in certain areas such as fishing spots, guardian legion zones and some other places i'm unable to recall atm

toggling it only disables it for a few seconds. the option used to only apply when inside of cuv, and it was still just as bad back then
is it a proper contest with limited winners, or will everyone that participates receive the footsteps?
snow angel title won't be obtainable from it

a few years ago we received a new version of wintera that includes healing potions and a warding scroll obtainable from the boxes
it was at that point that they also introduced new achievements which are now the only ones available. the only title you can obtain now is "snowlord" for winning 200

this year, korea also changed wintera again, turning it into a single round game that supposedly has a shrinking playing field as the timer ticks down to cut down on stalemating. we might get this version too, it's hard to say since they just got it last week
bye .

So lets say someone happens to find this boss and decide to kill it, after a long while some random shows up and they happen to use their big burst on the boss like Gunners BV and takes all the loot. Lol :x
1) the boss will have a global message announcing its spawn
2) its hp will be hidden to prevent sniping. managing to do so would strictly be luck based
tell me how often you think 0.4% cd will make an impactful difference in a typical fwc

If this is accurate then all current gear will be useless.
nothing in the post makes any mention of new gear
if you read the event details on the ingame calendar you'll see that it was intended to be 4 a week (2 per day on sat+sun) the whole time
the 'tuna' would be stuck on your account

if you took the 'tuna' and made it into something, that thing could be given to someone else
gave up on eu already lol :DDDDDDD
just up the drop rates on them and possibly reveal the dungeons they're obtainable from

putting them in the emp store or events will just lead to people complaining about them more

For enchanting events you're really going to have to do better than this. It really wouldn't have killed you to give us the 1.5x enhancement rate that EU had for stormcry.

stage 3
guess ur staying elin
we already had that event, it happened a week before apex 2
why stop there, lets get rid of everything else too so it's only the jackpot item remaining

i dont want to open a random lootbox in order to not get the jackpot item, that's crazy and not worth my money
the success rates are the same as their normal enchant rates, what are you talking about?
the chance at degrading is offset by the fact that it costs nothing else to attempt.
they'll probably start adding something up for sale tomorrow as they're shifting out the garment boxes
how is it their screw up if they had no control over it happening either

no .
you know that broker history only goes back like a couple of months right

"before" could've been during one of those strongbox jackpots
can you explain what items you believe are "aimed at those who pvp"? because nearly everything in both shops (the contents of both coins are also nearly identical too) are useful in both pve and pvp.
no dude, a dps with a bunch of offensive talents is still not going to gain more points than your apex priest with support talents at guardian legion.
both drop from the last bosses of all 446 and above dungeons at a very low rate

i've personally seen a mask from drcn one time out of like 30 something runs
the talent system and the changes to guardian missions are not related at all.
hasnt changed except as of recent there have been more people abusing proxy to do things like cap pyres from spawn and iframe thru ig

bgs still alternate between fwc and cs day by day, grid pops for like 3 hours on sat/sun and the vg gives a large chunk of item exp
skyring exists but is almost always forced q still

apex skills have been recently enabled inside of bgs in ktera, but currently no other version has access to them yet. in this same patch they also got rid of fwc, and replaced it with a new 7v7 bg that functions almost entirely the same (3 pyres, 1 near each spawn and a mid one), except points are only gained via pyre holding and bam last hits
on the other hand, getting the items needed to upgrade entropy is much easier to obtain thru pvp, especially the silver talents.

also to clarify, essences and shards were added to the meta emblem shop, not veilthrochs.

but you are aware I won't bother with making lines of the same length in paint right?
nah, it makes a very big difference. i could take the same 2nd image, extend the part you blocked off and suddenly claim that it's an entirely different person's ticket. but now that you brought up inspect element, nothing here's valid yet again.

include the responses to the ticket
i don't think it proves a thing because you already pulled that first unban image from somewhere else, what's to say you didn't pull these two new ones out of nowhere too?

the two parts on each image where you blocked out what i assume is the account name ("action on the XXXX En Masse account" and "Hello XXXX") don't quite match up in terms of length. on top of that, i went and looked at a few of my own support tickets, and none of their responses ever included a name in the first line, it was always something along the lines of "hi there", or "greetings". i will admit that i've never had to send in a ticket to appeal a ban, but if the system messages are as automated as you claim i doubt there'd be any difference there.
how does this

Back in February my friends tried to appeal and they were told they were perma banned forever, no matter what, no appeals.
all of them got unbanned.

what's also funny is that i've seen multiple people post that very picture, right down to the exact same time stamp. i'm no expert at eme's support ticket stuff, but i'd imagine they go through each one individually to give a response to them. handing out the same response (several times, as you claim) could not be done in the course of a minute, even if it were copy pasted.
cant prove what doesnt exist lol
twiddle with ur thumbs
ktera only got the update that allowed brawlers to change last week, after them being available for about 3 months
canyon conqueror has never been a shiny title
ok, there is no such thing planned to happen, and eu has not gotten anything remotely similar to what you're looking for. they currently have a test server available to preview an upcoming update to the game, and after said test period ends the sever will be gone.
if veteran players joined said "new server" they'd still be years ahead of you in experience
viewer count is not relevant at all

I do agree that there should be a limit if you once got the mask from pit. I have seen some players who got the mask and are rank 1 in pit, totally an inconvenience for people who actually NEED the mask.
the mask isn't the main reward from the leaderboards, it's the prestige title. on top of that, the mask coupon you get from the leaderboard can be banked and given to an alt. if a player has 19 alts that don't have masks and wants to get one for each of them you can see where they have no reason to stop.
those times are all legitimate. they're also competing for the mask, or for the title, and if you want either from pit you need to outperform them.
The clutter needs to go though.
funny how a guy making a new account likely to bypass a shadowban brings up something like this

no, removing lore related pieces to replace them with effortless content would completely go against the idea of it being a role-playing game.
Dvsv wrote: »
why make new players waste time till 439 learning useless outdated pre-awaken rotation?
because it's challenged with a questline that newer players have shown to struggle with. the gearing leading up to the ilvl req allows them to at least have a brief moment to figure out what they're doing before then.
nice blog post dude
you can iframe into them or throw a pet out and have it grab it for you
a few years back fwc was made eq only, and the same players still stomped on others because fwc is not solely won through gear, but through teamwork as well.

it is entirely possible, right now, for a team of 15 equalized players to win a game against any sync queue by avoiding big fights and keeping caps, while sniping bams. this of course, requires all 15 players to know exactly what they're doing in order to outplay the other team, but the point is that it can be done.

if the current community was split between good and bad, the bad players would play each other and never improve, and even pick up very poor habits that would work on a bad player, but not on a good one. then when they're finally geared up and think they're 'ready' to face someone good, their bad habits get punished way harder and it causes them to get rolled anyway
nearly every attack in RRHM is either fixed/percentage damage or are coupled with bleeds that can be babysat through by a good healer.
In a literal sense, you are paper in frostmetal and do no damage, and won't be taken to most dungeons or given a chance to progress.
by that logic no one would run with anyone that isn't in full +2 HO because their damage doesn't match up either, but that is not the case

apex exists for every class now, and DRC/RRH are easy enough to carry through.
P2W wrote: »
If that's the case, then the battlegrounds should be tiered. One battleground for people with HO and SC and a equalized version. Those that have geared up for PVP can queue that unequalized one and the rest without gears can queue the equalized one.
a bg with equalized gear would be easier to stomp players on as a sync, meaning players would still only queue for that. not going to solve anything.

forcing players with higher ilvls into the "uneq" version would only isolate the already small community even further, but they could very easily pick up a set of guardian and trick the system.
What you at EME need to realise is that these dungeons drop NOTHING, and NO ONE runs them anymore
in a literal sense, this is wrong.

446, the ilvl required to get vg rewards from DRC/RRH, can be achieved with full +9 fm. no "low tier" sc needed.
bum off a friend with one
there are vines and things in the water that can be climbed on to snipe them from a distance, but even gunner can't reach all of them. this isn't done on purpose, it's simply how the random spawn functions work

the biggest flaw with this event is that the fake ones don't despawn, meaning after the first wave of players cover an area, you're left with only unkillable/unreachable ones in an area for the remainder of the allotted time
give it +2 HO ticket too

pc issues...
hey so using this picture i managed to pinpoint who you were ingame and /inspect'd you. here's a few things i spotted that you could adjust:
(disclaimer: none of these things are for sure the reason you might be getting kicked, and doing them still might not change much)
1) you're guildless. this can give the impression that you're hiding on an alt character that you have no proper attachment to, and could be seen as a player only looking to throw games
2) your earrings are 4/4 and have no stun duration lines on them. this line is probably one of the most crucial rolls in pvp, as a stunned target is useless. however, players from the other server would not be able to notice this by simply inspecting, so it likely isn't a reason most of the time
3) you have low enchanted gear. this one is a bit iffy, because a player that knows exactly what they're doing with the same gear could still make an impact on things. if someone notices that you're doing poorly, and checks what gear you have only to see something like +0 sc, it doesn't really help your case

Yep, cuz there's no returning or new players on this game anymore
this ridiculous mindset of yours that every player has to be "able to run every top dungeon out there immediately" doesn't apply to new or returning players. unless they swipe and buy all their stuff outright, they have to gear up and progress their characters like everyone else did.

Especially now that the dev is asking insane 453 and 455 iLVL to do mid-high tier content

Someone told me the usual EME stream has about 150 ppl watching. So disregard and just do whatever you want to do. The extremely low population and advertisement of their streams isn't worth going too deep with this so it's all good.
probably the dumbest post in this thread

streamers that get even 1k viewers on average are already in something like the top 10% of twitch. sure, the eme stream will likely never get as many viewers as your favorite normie streamer ninja, but viewership literally has no relevance to how someone should run their stream
the weekly buff is still there, but it was changed a bit to give hp and power for all tiers, just in lower amounts

i don't know the numbers off the top of my head, but think something like 1 crit+1% hp for the first one, 3+3% for second and 5+5% for third. the highest level buff also only requires you to log in for 6 out of 7 days now.

this buff has never been significant enough to justify not playing over not having it.
1) the idea was brought up by eme, but they cannot do anything by themselves and it would be at the mercy of bhs to implement such a thing
2) if the idea was added in, it would not take a day and would take more around a year to do

you can access your pet ui by clicking on your pet once summoned
grid is still available to q twice a week, but grid legend achievement is no longer possible to obtain from it because you cannot 'win' anymore

the two you listed (from 2 different things btw) are from dungeons that are no longer in the game
because it's no longer possible for one side to 'win' grid anymore, everyone that reaches like 300 pts or whatever get a reward. but unlike something like kumasylum or old wintera, it hasn't been fully removed from the game yet

the first place title in grid is still obtainable, other one was probably removed to clear up any confusion related to it
