If you buy the character bound mount, you can take it out of YOUR item claim and trade the book to him.

However, if you buy the account bound lion, no, there is no way to gift it or trade it to him as far as I know.


This is correct. Only the character bound mount is tradeable, the account bound one shows up in the "Account Items" tab in Item Claim, and those items will be available to all of your current and future character created, but they cannot be traded.
Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for putting something like this together.

I need to get my priest on TR to max level and maybe I'll join you secretly! :D

Do you have a reputation for kicking some serious butt in TERA? In honor of Super Bowl XLVIII, beginning now through maintenance on Tuesday, February 4, get double rep in Kumasylum. Go beast mode on those baddies! It’ll be like taking candy from a super-huge, freaky baby!
Edited by: Tonka 11 months ago - Reason: Tonka Edit: Kumasylum grants double rep to all players participating in the battleground, not just to winners.
Yep, LT is coming up just now, please give a few more minutes. :)
Edited by: Minea 11 months ago - Reason: Confirming it's available now, I'm logged in with other LT'ers. :)
All of the servers are up and players are logged in.

(@Knnhcsir, Please try exiting completely out of the launcher and restarting it.: ) )
The current season of Crucible of Flame for each server is listed below:

• Ascension Valley - started on 1/25
• Celestial Hills - started on 1/25
• Lake of Tears - started on 1/25
• Mount Tyrannas - started on 1/28
• Tempest Reach - started on 1/28
• Valley of Titans - started on 1/28

We are working to consolidate the season for all servers and will update you with more information.
Oh ho ho, TR is being super adorable today! o7
You are logged into your forum account and are posting on the forums, so you should be able to contact our Support Team by selecting "TERA" and "I can't log in" option here. PM me if you can't access that page and we'll figure stuff out.

I understand that you are frustrated, but this is your last warning for making personal attacks on the forums. This type of behavior is a no-no.


You’ve had elite status for a while, and you really loved that jeweled lion mount. You miss it. You wish you could just buy it from the store. We know, and we’re granting that wish! Starting today, January 28, you can buy your very own jeweled lion mount from Valkyon Outfitters or Valkyon Outfitters Online—whether you’re elite or not!

We’re also changing our monthly elite gift. Sign up for elite status before Wednesday, January 29 at 6:59 a.m. PST to get January’s free gift: a dyeable steampunk outfit! Sign up after, or keep your elite status active, to get February’s gift: a character-bound EX-TRM mount!

As some players have pointed out, Shervanberry wine and the Sky lotus wine names are mixed. Thank you for letting us know!
Sorry if was confusing, we'll try harder to make it clearer next time. ^_^;;

Thanks for clarifying that, Lancelot! :D
Hello,

We have some more information on the festival achievements.

1. "Please Drunk Responsibility"

: Shevranberry Wine and Sky Lotus Drink required for the "Please Drunk Responsibility" achievement list are mixed. Please drink the other to complete the achievement. This is a known issue and will be fixed next week.


This has been resolved after this morning's maintenance.

2. "Now All I Need Is a Lamp"

: This achievement requires "Shouldn't a Festival Be More... Festive?" achievement from the Festival of the Sun. Please make sure to double check if you have the prerequisite.
Edited by: Minea 10 months ago - Reason: Please Drunk Responsibility has been fixed to display the correct food item names.
A server crash has occurred for all servers about 10 minutes ago. We are investigating the issue and working on bringing all servers up right now.

Hey all,

Thanks for letting us know about not being able to search for the Snowbelle suits at the broker. We plan to fix it next week. If there are other items that you can't search for, please let us know. Thanks.
(Let's chill a bit, you two. It's Friday and here is an image for you both.

I've removed names from the first post to avoid callouts - it's a no-no on the forums. I understand your frustration, but please report any inappropriate behavior through our Support Team instead of making callouts. Thanks.)
Welcome back!

So far we don't know when we'll have this yet, but currently the plan is sometime in spring. Of course we'll have more specific dates as we get nearer to the date and share it with everyone. :)

Guys, I know it's a repeat topic, but that doesn't mean you can't be a bit friendlier to a fellow player who sounds pretty excited about a new update coming. :(

You're right, CoF season didn't get reset last night. We're looking into this.


Festivals abound in the world of TERA from Tuesday, January 28 to Tuesday, April 1! Log in and join the fun! (Read on to find out more!)

Rootstock | Pond Faire

Rootstock

After years of war and rebellion, the Freeholds are finally free from conflict—and the farmers are eager to hold their midwinter festival again at long last!

Starting Tuesday, January 28, level 28 and above can visit the Freeholds to participate in a wide variety of country fair events and games—as well as placing wagers on the titanic clashes going on in the Bamarama!

When the event begins, you should receive an invitation to Rootstock. Just talk to Melsa, in the fairgrounds by Lein's Farm, to get started. After you run a couple errands for her, Melsa will get you started discovering the various attractions, so you can identify what most appeals to you and get involved right away!

If you're into mini-games, Rootstock has three offerings especially for you!



Bamarama

At specific times during the day, the BAMs come out to play! Talk to Lein (just west of the Rootstock fairground, at the entrance to the arena), and place wagers on which of two BAMs will win in a head-to-head match up. Start by purchasing gold tickets from Teena, Tayana, or Linu (the Bamarama bookies), then place your bets with them. If your BAM wins, you'll get a piece of the purse via parcel post: more gold tickets, which you can sell back to the bookies when you're ready to cash out! (You can also get gold tickets by completing the Rootstock daily quests that involve mini-games.)



Kick-Bale

Track down Digory at his farm, north of the BAM arena, to play this traditional Freeholds favorite. Just left-click to kick the hay bale. The longer you keep the giant hay bale away from the harvest bots, the more points you score! But they're fast, so you'll need to keep moving—and kicking—if you want to win. Top kickers earn Kick-Bale gift boxes and have a small chance to earn one the the following rare recipes not available at the merchant: Traditional Bleakfields BBQ, Freeholds Flame Salad, or Bleak Wings.



Pigling Rodeo

Way over in Lee's End, Tippani runs the Pigling Rodeo; talk to her to get started in your career as a swineherd! All you have to do is left-click on a pigling to make it fall in line—but you're up against the swineherd scarecrow, who steals your pigs (and your points). Top herders earn Pigling Rodeo gift boxes and have a small chance to earn one the the following rare recipes not available at the merchant: Traditional Bleakfields BBQ, Freeholds Flame Salad, or Bleak Wings.



If achievements are more your style, you'll want to shoot for "Now All I Need Is a Lamp"—an achievement that shows you have earned both the "Eat! Drink! Cook! Enjoy Rootstock!" achievement and the "Shouldn't a Festival Be More...Festive?" achievement. This is how you'll win the fabulous Moonsilk Carpet mount. You'll need to complete the following achievements to qualify.

All the Prizes Are Mine!

You need three gift boxes from each of the three Rootstock mini-games to earn this achievement. Kick butt at Digory's Kick-Bale game to earn Kick-Bale gift boxes. Round up as many piglings as possible in Tippani's rodeo to pick up Pigling Rodeo gift boxes. Finally, talk to Teena, Tayana, or Linu to get those Bamarama boxes.

Please Drunk Responsibility

But what would a festival be without liquid refreshments? Open the various Rootstock gift boxes (Kick-Bale gift box, Pigling Rodeo gift box, and Bamarama box) to get the drinks, then chug one of each to stagger your way into Rootstock's drinking achievement:

• Freeholds Root Beer
• Sky Lotus Drink
• Shevranberry Wine
• Lein's Dark Root Beer
• Digory's Honey Moongourd Drink

Good Eats

Of course, Rootstock is all about the cooking, too! Complete quests and games with various Freeholds NPCs to get recipes and ingredients for everything listed below—or just buy what you need from the fairground merchants:

• Floretta Soup—floretta, butter, milk
• Moongourd Muffin—moongourd, flour dough, salt
• Popped Cobseed—cobseed, butter
• Mudroot Salad—mudroot, cobseed, salad dressing
• Grilled Pigling—pigling meat, salt
• Lamb Bulgogi—lamb, taproot, flame pepper, special sauce
• Struthio Breast Salad—struthio breast, taproot, floretta, salad dressing
• Shevranberry Cookie—shevranberry, flour dough, sugar
• Half-Moon Croquette—mudroot salad, lamb, flour dough
• Traditional Bleakfields BBQ—cured pigling, sky lotus, herb-seasoned salt,
special sauce
• Freeholds Flame Salad—mudroot, taproot, cobseed, flame pepper, sky lotus, special salad dressing
• Bleak Wings—struthio breast, taproot, struthio egg, sky lotus, special sauce, salt

Stairway to Heaven

Find the Val Aureum Sky Pond, high above the Bleak Fields, and admire the view! Don’t forget to grab some sky lotus while you're up there! And if you take a moment to talk to Rachlae, at the base of the Sky Pond steps, she'll give you a quest that takes you on the grand tour of the Freeholds—during which you'll pick up a number of ingredients for various recipes—and you'll end up with a serving each of traditional Bleakfields BBQ, Freeholds flame salad, and bleak wings, just to get you started on your Good Eats achievement!

All done with the Rootstock games and quests? Get started on the questline.

Going to the Fair

Players level 28 and above automatically receive a message from Melsa at Lein's Farm inviting them to the Rootstock festival.

Get Back to Your Roots

Melsa teaches players how to harvest crops and cook great seasonal food. She also teaches the players about the Bamarama, the Kick-Bale mini-game, and Sky Pond. (Follows Going to the Fair.)

Create a Farmer’s Almanac

Millia needs help making a Farmer's Almanac. You'll collect several different crops to complete each page, then turn it back in for a reward. (Follows Get Back to Your Roots.)

Down on the Farm

Experience all the aspects of ranch life, as instructed by Rachlae of Bleak Fields. (Follows Get back to Your Roots.)

Finished those and ready for more? There are always the daily quests.

Dish Delivery

Talk to Melsa to find out which fair food she needs, then cook it up for her in exchange for more ingredients! (Follows Get back to Your Roots.)

Kick-Bale

You can play Digory's game as often as you like, but once per day he'll reward you for playing with three gold tickets! (Follows Get back to Your Roots.)

Sheep Herding

Poor Tagun just can't manage his sheep! Head out to Lee's End Stead to round them up for him, and he'll give you some lamb. (Follows Down on the Farm.)

Ranch Management

Filton's Dairy Farm is under daily threat from marauding hyenas. Visit Filton each day to protect his cattle, and he'll reward you with milk for your recipes. (Follows Down on the Farm.)

Pigling Rodeo

Talk to Tippani each day to herd some more piglings, and earn three gold tickets for your trouble! (Follows Down on the Farm.)

Rootstock doesn't end until the spring planting begins, so you've got plenty of time to go back again and again. And do yourself a favor and take the grand tour of the Freeholds. You'll be glad you did!



Pond Faire

Love is in the aire at Pond Faire! Players level 18 and up can join in the celebration as the baba (baby) tuwangis turn seven, grow up, and start their new lives. You can find all the happenings in Tuwangi Mire at the giant flaming frog bonfire and the pond below. You’ll find the festival full of drums, frogs, and tuwangis.

Jump in and see what you like! Maybe start with the mini-game.



Drum Away

Talk to Kukuta, the drum instructor, to start the game. Players have only one skill: drum beat. Three colored drums must be hit to drive away the correspondingly colored frogs as they approach. Like other minigames, getting the top rank earns you a special prize: a colorful frogspawn egg. Inside you receive one of three one-day frog mini-pets (blue, pink, or orange). Hitting just one drum too many times will break that drum. So no mindless mouse-button smashing!

If you’re into achievements, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered! Win the mini-game enough times, and you could end up with not just an achievement, but a permanent pet!

Croakfest

Just earn the rank 1 prize in the Drum Away mini-game and open it up!

Where's the Brain?

Win the Drum Away mini-game and get a one-day frog named Pinkie. Click each training book you get, because that increments your progress in the achievement. Collect and click seven training books to get a permanent Pinkie frog pet!

Weatherbeaten

Win the Drum Away mini-game and get a one-day frog named Rusty. Click each training book you get, because that increments your progress in the achievement. Collect and click seven training books to get a permanent Rusty frog pet!

Mondays Always Get Me Down

Win the Drum Away mini-game and get a one-day frog named Rainie. Click each training book you get, because that increments your progress in the achievement. Collect and click seven training books to get a permanent Rainie frog pet!



Looking for a more structured experience? Work your way through the faire’s questline!

Pond Life

Players of level 18 and above automatically receive a message from the Mysterium’s pond expert, Krumu, inviting them to the festival in Tuwangi Mire.

Prepare for the Faire

Haroso, the tuwangi shaman, is concerned about a frightened baba tuwangi. Find a likely hiding spot, and use a drum to lure the tuwangi out. Then Haroso asks you to slay some dragons (tiny lizards) and roast their meat. (Follows Pond Life.)

Lilies and Drums

Vedobo, the pond keeper, needs two things to get the baba tuwangis ready for the ceremony: flowers and drums. He asks you to pick flowers and play the drums that keep the frogs away from the ceremony. (Follows Prepare for the Faire.)

Finished those and ready for more? Come back tomorrow! There are always the daily quests.

Hide-n-Seek

More frightened baba tuwangis...find a likely hiding spot, and use a drum to lure the tuwangi out. ( Prepare for the Faire.)

Slay the Dragons

Hunt bubu dragons for their meat and roast them at the giant bonfire (frogfire?). (Follows Prepare for the Faire.)

And the Beat Goes On

Help Haroso repair the drums by hunting miretoads for their skins. (Follows Prepare for the Faire.)

Drumline

Play the Drum Away mini-game. (Follows Lilies and Drums.)

Floral Attraction

Gather pond lilies. (Follows the flower-gathering task of Lilies and Drums.)

Remember, a faire is best experienced with several visits, so make sure you experience all it has to offer!

Whether you’re in it for the frogs or in it for the BAMs, there’s a festival for you starting January 28!
Edited by: Minea 11 months ago - Reason: Clarified that characters that are level 28 and above can participate.
Confirming it's up again, sorry for that, folks. :(
True! My least favorite on my mystic was the frost giant guy. Maybe it's the way I kite/play, but grrr! :)
We're working on it, sorry folks. :(
The investigation into Johnny’s murder may be done but the public has also spoken. Lilah fooled the Family and the police but has been judged guilty by you, the TERA community.

Great job, sleuths! Enjoy this wallpaper depicting the grizzly crime as reward for your efforts.

Confirming LT is back up, thank you for your patience.
Hey guys, this is being looked into. Hang in there!!

I usually say "Hello" when I get in a party and I usually don't get any kind of response, but I'll still always end with a "thank you" and/or a "good job." I won't normally just talk to people while I level, as I'm usually on a rather empty channel, but if someone talks first, I'll talk back, but that's never the case, especially not after the Lumbertown area.

Just letting you know, I also try to talk a bit and when people say hi back, it really makes my day. So thank you for doing this! ^_^
It was good seeing you in game yesterday, Arrafina.

Thank you for being such a positive influence in our community and good luck with the events! Hopefully I'll get to stop by in some. :)

Just a few buttons to load TERA.

(Please remember that discussing any type of client alteration is not allowed on the forums. Thanks. :( )
We were tweaking some of the errors right now, but yep 880 is the elite price while the regular price is 1045. (News post will come soon now that the display errors are fixed. News post is up too. :))

Both the web and in-game stores are open. :)
Edited by: Minea 11 months ago - Reason: News post is up as well.


Every legitimate business man and woman needs a legitimate business suit. Starting Thursday, January 23, Valkyon Outfitters and Valkyon Outfitters Online will roll out dark and white suits and dapper hats for all races and genders. Elin characters can see if a bonus tat-sleeve suit suits their personality. And if your name is Mr. Yellow or Mr. Pink, don’t despair; the white legitimate business suits have dyeable shirts, so you can represent!

Accessories include our newest back-slot item—a gun* known as the “organ grinder”—fedoras of the black, white, brown, and gray variety, plus brow glasses in tortoise-shell, black, brown, or pink with a touch of bling. For those players who play the class joker, there’s even a clown mask!**

*Organ grinder is cosmetic only and does not fire bullets.
**Clown mask will not actually make you funnier.
counterpoint on 01/23/2014, 01:53 PM - view
The remaining small clean-up bugs I see are all related to the Elin Business Case lootbox. In the Web Store, the Stack of 3 does not show the Tattooed outfit in the item list below. In the in-game store, neither the standalone or the stack refer to the Tattooed outfit in the product description, though it is in the lootbox (per the web store).

(That aside, SSO was broken for me for the last 15 minutes or so, but it's fixed now.)

The tatooed suits are included in the box description for both web and in-game. :)

(Sorry... What's SSO?)
Okay, I should have double checked before I replied. xD

The missing icon will be added on web store, is added just now.

The text difference is not something we can fix until we get a new build, unfortunately. So it will stay that way at least for a while.

Thank you very much for your help! Much appreciated.

(Ahh. That was weird. Glad it started working again.)
Yeah, they are all tradeable, They should be, so we just tested them again and made sure. Thank you for the surprise. :P
(Please use the non-TERA-focused topics in Off-Topic section of the forum. Thanks.)
The police arrested Bubba for the crime. They found Bubba's hat in the room with blood on it. The Family had a different suspect in mind and served their own justice: A bartender informed the Family of a drunken confession. Bruno was taken out into the desert and shot. In all this commotion someone made the mask disappear.

Has Johnny's killer been brought to justice, or did someone manage to outwit the Family and police alike?

Did you close out of the launcher completely and log back in? Give that a try.
The maintenance is still going, how is everyone this morning? :)
Welcome back! No worries, there's always someone who forgets it's a Tuesday. :)
Updated:

Hey there,

Our servers are currently under maintenance right now, so that is probably why you are getting the error message. When the servers come up again, please exit the launch completely and try again.

Spike, aww, it seems like the maintenance hours were very unfortunate with the Vault access. I can't change the hours though, I'm afraid. I wish I could! :(

Celestial Hills is awake and stretching! We'll feed it more coffee and make sure to feed it throughout the day (in other words, we'll keep an eye on it).

Thank you for your patience!

Somebody snuffed Johnny B. In better times, the Family would stick together. This ain't one of those times. Word is the hit came form inside the Family. Everyone's a suspect.

Can you figure out who did it before the killer strikes again?



Nabbing the police file reveals some interesting clues: The victim was stabbed in the back in his own apartment. The murder weapon is missing, but the killer left something else behind. Neighbors confirm they heard Johnny scream but didn't see anyone enter or leave the apartment.

Search for clues and stay tuned for the suspect list!

(Thank you for your patience, folks. We thought we figured out and fixed the cause, but alas, it didn't work.

In the meantime, help us with the murder mystery in the Family!)
I had my suspect all figured out and reading these comments is confusing me a lot. :(

The investigation into Johnny’s murder may be done but the public has also spoken. Lilah fooled the Family and the police but has been judged guilty by you, the TERA community.

Great job, sleuths! Enjoy this wallpaper depicting the grizzly crime as reward for your efforts.

Edited by: Minea 11 months ago - Reason: The killer was..... Lilah!
(I was tweaking with the text format a bit since we have the suspects now. We'll see which one gets voted as the killer!)
(Folks, be nice. Help a fellow player out if you know the info and if not at least try to be constructive and respectful please. :( )

Just open a support ticket, and provide as much detail as you can and a GM will help you resolve the installation issues.

The Legitimate Business Suits will be sometime this month. :P

Tonka, Harmonia and I were wearing them when Tonka and Harmonia were breaking out of the prison camp on Friday. You may also find a few in game right now, as we gave them away during the stream.
Here is the link to Friday's prison break stream. :)

Also a bit of a background on how Tawn.Ka (Tonka) and Not.A.Husky (Harmonia) ended up in the dreadful place.

They say crime doesn’t pay, and for a very long time I thought that statement was a load of Kumas dung. We thought we were invincible, years of completely controlling the spellbind market will do that to you. Our mafia had the market in our pocket, controlling both the supply and the demand led to us lining our pockets for a very long time. When you are making the kind of money that we were, you attract a whole lot of attention from all over.

Well one day the Syndicate came knocking on our door. It was less of an offer to do business with us, and more of a hostile takeover. They told us to get out of the game, or join them. My partner, Not.A.Husky and I wrote it off. “They can’t touch us” we said “They are just trying to scare us out of the market”.

Well… maybe we got too comfortable… maybe we lost track on what we were doing… maybe we just felt invincible. I don’t know how we got where we are now, but I do know who put us here…

Mineo. No one is quite sure what his title inside the syndicate truly is, but word is if you see mineo glancing your way, you are in big trouble. Mineo is good. Somehow he found out where our operation is, infiltrated it and greeted us at the crack of dawn, on a Sunday no less. Classless character that Mineo.

For months we have been in this hell hole, slaves to the Gulas. I don’t know if they are holding us just as a slave, or torturing us for pleasure, but we won’t be here much longer. Rumor has it that Not.A.Husky and I are being moved to the Tenebrous mines soon. I hate the desert, and I hate the mines even more. I’ve been secretly working on the lock to my cell for quite some time, and today is our day to make a run for it. These slave masters are brutal, but they sure are dumb.

I’ve been in communication with Little.Husky, the older brother of my partner Not.A.Husky. He has secured us a way out, and is waiting for us at Sandbar Beach. We just have to make it there first. I long for freedom, and today is the day we make it out of here.

Moving this to Roleplay section of the forums. :)
We recorded the voices ourselves, one of the voices in the video is actually Tonka! (See if you can figure out which one. :D)

Heya Ark!

Thank you for creating the handy calculators for various aspects of the game! I'm sure it'll be very useful to everyone. :)

That said, you do have 3 threads in Fansites section already, so let's try to keep the redundant threads about the same site to a minimum. Thanks!
Hey Everyone!

This week Harmonia, Minea, and I will be doing some Role Playing on CH.

Not.A.Husky (Harmonia) and I have been arrested, but not by the federation! After years of controlling the spellbind market by artificially creating demand to drive up the prices, the Gula Syndicate is looking to take the controlling interest in this portion of the market. Minea, a top general in the Syndicate was tasked in taking us down, and has captured the two of us and imprisoned us on Mistmoor Island.

After years of slavery, we have heard news of our impending transfer to the Tenebrous Mines. The time is now, we must make a break for the beach, but will we be able to escape Mineo and her evil goons?

Tune in to our official Twitch.TV channel to view the crazyness, and you could even win a new "Legitimate Business Suit" before anyone else can get them!

See you then!

-Tonka
(Let's cool it and try to create a community that actually encourages people to share their fanwork. Thanks.)
For this morning's patch, here is the list:

Bug Fixes

• Weapon and skill effects now show while using Murderous Intent.
• In Corsairs’ Stronghold, airships no longer stop when a player logs out while riding one.
• Gates and Anchorstones no longer increase crit rates in Corsairs’ Stronghold.
• Fixed animation issues with human female characters on mounts.
• A bug with avatar weapons and equalized battlegrounds has been fixed.
• Berserker’s Mocking Shout skill tooltip no longer displays incorrect time of effect.
• The achievement “Manaya’s Core: Conqueror” no longer displays “Closure” as a required quest; it now appropriately displays “Rotten to the Core.”


Tired of that tail? Bored of that beard? Had it up the here with horns? This weekend, from Thursday, January 16 at 1 p.m. PST to Tuesday, January 21 at 1 p.m. PST, we’re taking 20 percent off race change vouchers in Valkyon Outfitters and Valkyon Outfitters Online.
All instance dungeons (including raid dungeons) are affected by the double droprate this weekend! :)

This is just a big misunderstanding, I can assure you. I simply wanted to get rid of certain individuals (namely two), you know, for greater good. Also I always had a feeling that those two would enjoy the climate of Tenebrous Mines better, so I'm actually doing them a favor. ;)
I need no words for this video.

BRO-POWER!
