Update:

We have started the preload for Fate of Arun. Some things to note:

1. There is a launcher update. After the launcher is updated, the launcher needs to be exited completely and restarted in order for the preload to start.

2. You will be able to press the "Play" button, but it will continue to download. Please note that the preload process will pause when the game starts to run - once you press the "Play" button, the preload process will pause.


The preload is a bit over 2GB. For minimal interruption of your gameplay this weekend, restarting the launcher completely and having the launcher running after you are done for the gameplay for the day may work well depending on your internet connection.
We do our best to keep folks informed, but sometimes I just don't have new information. We are still working on getting the issue addressed and we'll continue using this thread to update everyone. <3


(Also this is a reminder on not making personal attacks on the forums. Keep all posts constructive and non-inflammatory. There will be no more warning. Thanks.)
Could you guys contact our Support Team with as much information as possible? We'll respond as soon as able to. Thank you.


You just unlocked Ultra-Hyper-Fire-Turbo-Time!

That means that this weekend, on Saturday, December 13 and Sunday, December 14, you'll get super—extreme MP regeneration, and all of your skills will have their cooldowns reduced by 80 percent!

Ultra-Hyper-Fire-Turbo-Time kicks in for two hours in the morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. PST, then again in the afternoon from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. PST, and another two hours in the evening from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. PST.

And then we start all over again, and Ultra-Hyper-Fire-Turbo-Time returns on Sunday in the same time slots!
Hi Camrael,

Looks like you're stuck! A GM can assist you with getting unstuck. Can you contact support with the name and server of your stuck character?
"The most specific window of time that we can say right now" is the important part! :)

The first half of the year is as specific as we can get right now because MMO's always have a lot of moving pieces. Our current focus is the Fate of Arun launch on 16th (which is in 4 days!), so we will have more information as time passes.
Good morning all and happy Friday!

We will get the different portions of Fate of Arun in order as KTERA did. The most specific window of time that we can say right now for the second phase is sometime in the first half of 2015. We'll be sure to announce more details as we get near. :)
The monthly elite gift ends on December 25. So if the renewal date is before that you will receive the monthly elite gift for December.

FrozenStar and DHMe, could you check to make sure that the launcher is exited/restarted completely?
We haven't been able to get the preload started today. Our next update will be tomorrow. :(


(It is indeed very windy here, I'm reading that some folks may lose power. If you're in the area, please be careful! <3)
(Time to refocus the discussion on male high elves. Thanks. :))

Hello Alkemy,

Can you double check for me to see if you see the special note we added on top of the news post + forum post this morning?

"Note: The preload has been temporarily delayed due to technical issues. We are currently working on a resolution and will update you on the forums when the issues are resolved."

It should link to the forums since we are using this pinned thread as the official update thread.

---

We're still working on getting the issue corrected and will continue using this thread for updates.
Good Afternoon!

Tomorrow on Twitch, we are going to be continuing our preview of the Fate of Arun. As request last week, we are going to look into some of the new skills, exploring some dungeons, and finally check out the Walk emote.

We are now less than a week away from Fate of Arun. We can't wait to open the gates and level to 65 with you guys!

Drop on by our official Twitch channel at 3:00pm for this preview! Make sure to stick around for some more ZMR PvP fun, which will include all melee battles, sniper fights, and more!

See you guys tomorrow!
Thank you! I'll be sure to pass the message along. :)

Yams, in the future, if you see a thread/post that you believe is against the rules, my advice to you is to report and move on instead of derailing it onto another topic. Thanks.
Felicity is a possibility.


Winter golden gift boxes are back, and every one you open could be your key to a holiday haul of EMP and other great loot.

Starting Thursday, December 11 at 1 p.m. PST, you can send Winter golden gift boxes to other players in TERA…and nab some bonus items for your generosity!

Sending golden gift boxes to other players in TERA earns you sweet rewards, like an account bound dyeable steampunk costume and exclusive Santa suit—and opening a gift box could be your ticket to untold riches of EMP and other great loot.

Send, receive, and open Wintera golden gift boxes from the Wintera Gifting Center. These gift boxes are available exclusively from the web version of the TERA Store (not in the in-game store).



Here's how it works:

• Buy a gift box. Open it and you'll be presented with four Wintera greeting cards—choose one to reveal your prize!
• Buy a box and gift it to a friend: Receive a Santa suit (permanent, smart box).
• Buy five boxes and gift them to friends: Receive a dyeable steampunk costume (permanent account bound smart box).
• Buy ten boxes and gift them to friends: Receive Felicity (permanent character pet).
• Buy twenty boxes and gift them to friends: Receive 1 year of Elite Status!



Choose one to reveal your prize (you'll also get a peek at what you could have won)!



What's in a Wintera golden gift box?

There are 24 different prizes in all—rare cosmetic items, valuable consumables, exclusive permanent village atlases and travel journals, and even jackpots up to 200,000 EMP!

What are you waiting for? Get thee to the TERA Store and start gifting today!

More info available in the Wintera Golden Gift Box FAQ.

--------------------------------

The fine print:

After January 6 at 11 a.m. PST, Wintera golden gift boxes will no longer be available for purchase from Valkyon Outfitters Online. Don’t worry though—you have until January 31 at 11:59 p.m. PST to open any remaining gifts in your gift inventory. After January 13 at 11:59 p.m. PST, the Wintera Gifting Center will no longer be accessible. If you do not open your gift by January 13 at 11:59 p.m. PST, your gifts will be removed, and you will be sent one Santa suit for each remaining gift by January 20 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

This change was due to the game crashing bug. The image may have been viewable a bit longer due to it being cached (Ctrl + F5 for hard refresh should clear it). Sorry for the confusion.
The dragon will be here in 2015. The reason is that we wish to make "dragon" plural, but i'm afraid i have to keep being that cryptic for now.
I don't have an update on this yet, but this will be the first place I update when there is one since you guys are awesome and we love you. :)

Gear Tiers

To help simplify and reduce costs for enchanting, the tiers of all gear have shifted:

If your gear was previously: It's now:
• Tier 1 – Tier 5 Tier 1
• Tier 6 – Tier 9 Tier 2
• Tier 10 – Tier 12 Tier 3
• Tier 13 – Tier 14 Tier 4
• Tier 15 Tier 5

Simplified Enchanting

Enchanting is easier than ever.

Access the enchanting interface with the button on the bottom of your inventory (or press "T" like before).





You only need two things to enchant your gear: feedstock and alkahest.

Let's talk about alkahest first:

Old alkahest still works, but now there's alkahest specific to each tier instead of the enchanting bonus. Any alkahest equal to or greater than the tier of the gear you are enchanting will work, provided you have enough.

You need 10 alkahests per enchanting attempt, plus an additional amount equal to the tier of the item you are enchanting.

Now on to feedstock. There are five tiers of feedstock, which correspond to the five tiers of equipment.

Level 65 bosses now drop tier 5 feedstock instead of dropping common (white) and uncommon (green) fodder.

You can create feedstock by dismantling armor and weapons. Quantities vary based on item level and bonuses. When you dismantle tier 4 equipment, you’re guaranteed to get tier 4 feedstock (see more on dismantling below). You can also create feedstock by combining 6 feedstock of the next lower tier.

You’ll need at least 2 feedstock to enchant handwear and footwear, 3 for body armor, and 4 per enchanting attempt on weapons. For low levels of enchanting bonus, the minimum amount is usually sufficient. But as your gear improves, you'll see the interface recommend doubling, tripling, or quadrupling the amount of feedstock for each attempt. Why would you want to spend more feedstock? Because using more improves your odds of successful enchantment while consuming the same amount of alkhest.



Dismantling can be done anywhere while you’re not in combat. Just click the center button at the bottom of your inventory, then click on the gear you want to dismantle. It’s a great way to condense all the miscellaneous armor and weapons you pick up into nice neat stacks of usable feedstock.



The amount of feedstock anything dismantles into is displayed at the bottom of the equipment’s tooltip underneath the resale value. The better the gear you dismantle, the more feedstock you get! One thing to remember, though: Once you dismantle gear, it’s gone forever—only the feedstock will remain. Also, gear with attached crystals cannot be dismantled—you’ll need to remove your crystals first.

And that’s all you need to know to get started!
We tried a few different measures and it seems like it's okay. Let us know if it starts acting up again though. Thank you for your help!
Good morning,

First, there are no planned server changes.

Second, please contact our Support Team if you are not able to access a particular server so that we can help. Thanks!
Are you having issues with reaching our Support Team or the store?

The 404 error with reaching our Support Team should be fixed, I believe.

For the store, could you make sure all browser cache is clear / browser restarted with nothing blocking javascript, etc.?
I see. We'll continue trying to track it down then. :(

Someone said refreshing the page may help, but it may be an unreliable workaround until we figure it out the exact cause.

If you have any detailed information (screenshots of the error, browser type/version, etc.), that'd be helpful too. Thank you.
We fixed the issue, you should be good now. xD
Okay, so I talked to our team and this seems to be a cache issue. Could you make sure to clear the browser cache and restart the browser? (Using a different browser you haven't used in a while could be another solution.)
@Yunith, You still receive the daily elite gift box, it's still on the elite status bar and clickable once a day per server.
Could you try clearing your browse cache and restart the browser? Some folks were having issues with our page/store with it earlier and that's recommendation to resolve the issue.

Updating the information on the elite status bar consumables

December 9 - 16

*Crafter’s Cure, Bravery Potion, Canephora Potion, and Instance Reset Scroll will be delivered together in one consumable box on the Elite status bar during the first week, December 9–16.

After December 16

The elite status bar will offer the consumables as items that will be pulled into the inventory, like how the daily elite gift box works.


Also from an earlier post:

"After the current duration of the elite status subscription runs out, all automatic elite status subscription will expire due to the fact that we changed our subscription service provider.

This means you have to manually do a one-time signup to set up the elite status subscription if you want to continue the elite status subscription.

In your case, due to our subscription service provider change, your subscription will not automatically renew after it runs out in 13 days. If you want to continue your elite status subscription, you have to re-signup to set up the elite status subscription again. You can do this now before your current subscription runs out, but it has to be before 8 a.m. PST on January 8 to receive the $9.99 discount."
Thank you!

Hmm, that is certainly not working properly. What versions for the browsers? Also does anyone have anything that may potentially block the page? Javascript blocker, etc.
Edited by: Minea about 17 hours ago
I believe so.


TERA: Fate of Arun is coming December 16, and when it arrives, you don't want to be stuck watching a progress bar while everyone else is playing.

So starting Thursday, December 11, at 11 a.m. PST, you can begin preloading the patch!

Here’s what you’ll need to know to get started:

For starters, this patch clocks in at around 2 GB, so you'll want to make sure you have enough space on your hard drive. Second, you’ll notice that when you log in, there will be something downloading, but the Play button will still be lit. That's okay; it just means that the files are being downloaded.



Remember that the preloader will only function while the launcher is open, but TERA is not. So you can still play, but just keep in mind that the preload will be paused while you do. When you’re finished with your session, leave the launcher open to complete the download.

When the preloading finishes, you’ll see that the bar looks something more like this:

TERA's elite status is changing, and with these changes comes a limited time offer!

Following maintenance on December 9, 2014 and until January 8, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific, players can subscribe to elite status for $9.99 per month. This reduced rate will continue for recurring subscriptions as long as they remain active without interruption. If a subscription is discontinued, the discounted price will no longer be available and the full price of $14.99 will be charged.

Here is what you need to know:

All players interested in maintaining or activating elite status must complete a one time sign-up for elite status following the December 9, 2014 maintenance.

Players with remaining elite subscription time will not lose it, but will need to complete the one time sign-up in order to continue the elite subscription.

Players using PayPal Express to complete their one time sign-up will be billed immediately, and then will not be billed again until all their current elite status time has been exhausted. Example: a player with 14 remaining elite status days who pays with PayPal will be billed $9.99 immediately and then will not be billed again for 44 days.

Players using a Visa or Mastercard to complete their one time sign-up will be billed when their current elite status time has been exhausted. For new subscribers, this will be immediate. For existing subscribers this will be dependent on the remaining elite status time.

There is a current known issue with removing billing information. We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it.

Hello everyone,

We are still working on our Steam integration to provide the best level of service we can - unfortunately, this results in a change in TERA's Steam launch date to early 2015. We will keep you updated as soon as we have a date.

Playing on Steam will remain purely optional and will not be required to play TERA. Its upcoming expansion, Fate of Arun, is on schedule to launch on December 16th and will be free for all players.

For more information about TERA on Steam, please see our FAQ here.
Correct, we are aiming for early 2015.

Sadly. I went Elite Yesterday. Got charged 14.99+ Tax.
Expires on the 7th. This 9.99 event ends on the 8th.
If i cancelled my subscription now, And re-did my information so it renews.
Would i be paying an additional 9.99 now?
or would that charge take effect when it's about to expire?

Also. Just confirming since guild has been buzzing about it.
Once you go Elite @ 9.99.
You keep paying 9.99 a month as long as you stay elite right?
But if you miss a payment, aka can't get elite the following month, etc etc.
You have to sign up again @ 14.99 a month right?

After the current duration of the elite status subscription runs out, all automatic elite status subscription will expire due to the fact that we changed our subscription service provider.

This means you have to manually do a one-time signup to set up the elite status subscription if you want to continue the elite status subscription.

In your case, due to our subscription service provider change, your subscription will not automatically renew after it runs out in January. If you want to continue your elite status subscription, you have to re-signup to set up the elite status subscription again. You can do this now before your current subscription runs out, but it has to be before 8 a.m. PST on January 8 to receive the $9.99 discount.

(Hope it clarifies a bit. :))

Another question - the boxes containing Canephora &amp; Crafter Cures are only from 12/9 - 12/16 right?

Will there be a different rotation of consumables after the 16th, or is this a one time thing?


No, the current way is a temporary workaround. Next week, the same consumables will be on the bar, but they will be delivered individually instead of all in one box.
Candyspinner is the only one that was missed and was not intended, so we plan to fix it this week. Thank you for letting us know!
Actually, we extended the date for the elite monthly gift's cutoff date so that it's fairer for the folks whose elite subscription renewal date was later than others.

Also the reason we are offering the elite discount is due to our subscription service provider change - since all elite status subscription will expire unless folks re-signup again. It's a great deal to offer for our players and encourage the signup at the same time.

The information is included in the first post of this thread where we explain the need for us to change our subscription service provider and how the automatic subscription will expire due to the provider change.
11:56 a.m. PST update:

Elite status subscription can be purchased.

(That was the last remaining issue, today's maintenance is complete.)
After the current duration of the elite status subscription runs out, all automatic elite status subscription will expire due to the fact that we changed our subscription service provider.

This means you have to manually do a one-time signup to set up the elite status subscription if you want to continue the elite status subscription.

Because everyone needs to re-signup to set up the elite status subscription, we are offering a discount for those who sign up for elite subscription status before 8 a.m. PST on January 8.
Which temporary items are you seeing?
Edited by: Minea about 21 hours ago
Also, are the boxes being opened the new ones from today after the maintenance? (vs. old ones that weren't opened)
11:15 a.m. PST update:

- Items and EMP can be purchased.
- Elite subscription cannot be purchased yet, we are still working on it.
It will work just like the current daily elite gift box - one a day, one per server.

All elite benefits will stop once the elite status expires.
Game Servers will be back up at 10 a.m. PST

Valkyon Outfitters (in-game store) and Valkyon Outfitters Online (web store) is scheduled to be back at noon (12 p.m. PST).
I believe that the best way to play a game in a team is to do your best to support each other and try to work things out and treat everyone with respect.

Nevertheless, this topic has run its course + there is an identical thread in CH subforum.
If you sign up between today and January 8th, you will be fine.

Recurring billing dates happen every 30 days after your first sign up.

Also, we are sending an email with the information. I just got it actually.
I want to clarify more in case it is not clear.

IF YOU ARE NOT ON ELITE RIGHT NOW:

You can sign up later today at the $9.99 price and be Elite just fine.

IF YOU ARE ELITE RIGHT NOW:

You can sign up later today at the $9.99 price. If you use Visa/Mastercard, you will NOT be billed until your CURRENT time ends. OR you can just wait until your time is up, and then renew, but you risk forgetting or being past the deadline. Today, you are basically just signing back up to renew automatically.

If you use Paypal Express for Elite, you will be billed TODAY. This is unfortunate but our choice was to either bill today or not to offer Paypal Express at all. You will STILL get the time you ALREADY paid for, plus another 30 days. You wont be billed again until after all that time is left. So if you have 14 days remaining as of today, and you sign up with Paypal Express today, you will be charged $9.99 today and not be billed again until 44 days later.

TERA: Fate of Arun is coming, and we want to make sure you enjoy all the benefits of Elite status at the best possible rate as you explore northern Arun!

We’ve revamped our Elite status system with new benefits and a lower rate. This month, old subscriptions won’t carry over. So Elite players (both old and new) need to do a one-time sign-up for Elite status. Those who sign up between 9 a.m. PST on Tuesday, December 9 and 8 a.m. PST on Thursday, January 8, 2015 will pay only $9.99 per month for all the benefits of Elite status—a $5 savings off the usual price.

And the best part is you will continue to enjoy these savings so long as you maintain your Elite status subscription. Starting January 9, new subscriptions (or lapsed/canceled returning subscriptions) will be charged the regular $14.99 per month rate.

Why sign up for Elite status? In addition to the various in-game bonuses such as double daily quest amount & daily dungeon entries, shortened dungeon entry cooldowns, decreased broker fees, etc., elite players receive the awesome benefits listed below:

• Razormane mount
• Permanent 100% XP Boost
• Permanent 100% Reputation Boost
• Permanent 100% Quester's Gold Boost
• 12 one-hour 100% Gold Hunter's Boosts (Displays after December 9 at 4 p.m. PST when Elite bar resets.)
• Village Atlas
• Travel Journal
• Elite Gift Box (daily loot box rewarded from the bar)
• Crafter’s Cure (1000p) ×1*
• Bravery Potion ×1*
• Canephora Potion ×1*
• Instance Reset Scroll ×1*

Act quickly! Remember, you only have until January 8 to set up a new Elite status subscription, before the price returns to normal. Get over to the Valkyon Outfitters Online before 8 a.m. PST on Thursday, January 8 to lock in this limited-time price!

*Crafter’s Cure, Bravery Potion, Canephora Potion, and Instance Reset Scroll will be delivered together in one consumable box on the Elite status bar during the first week, December 9–16.

For the full list of benefits and more information, check out the Elite Status FAQ here - currently there is a known issue with removing billing information.

(News post and the forum post have been corrected.)
Moving to AV subforums. Server-specific questions like this are better for the server subforums. :)
You will receive one consumable box per day, December 9 - 16. Each consumable box will contain one of the 4 consumable items listed above.


I was too, but alas, it's Razormane. I do like Razormane quite a bit though. :)
Hello All!

Treeshark will be joining us to help give a tour of some of the new zones and dungeons. We will be showing off the scenery, and bosses. We won't be able to play through the dungeons like we did for Wounded World, but we still want to give everyone a first hand look at the beauty that is Fate of Arun!

We hope you guys are ready for Fate of Arun, cause It's almost here! Come on by the stream, and you might even win something during our normal stream giveaways.

Following TERA we will be playing some more ZMR with the community. Make sure to stop by at 3:00pm Pacific for TERA or at 3:30pm Pacific on our official Twitch channel.

Good morning!

Every region and publisher is a completely different and separate company, so I'm afraid making assumptions won't work. Also we're preparing for a Steam launch as well. :)


P.S.: Please note that using alternate forum accounts is against the rules. You REALLY should know this by now.
The double XP does not have a buff icon like Velik's Blessing, which could be an additional cause of confusion as well. The double XP event is on and working though.

(Thank you for explaining the how the rest XP displays, folks!)
We showed your comment to Treeshark before the stream. :)

If anyone missed the stream, the recorded video can be viewed here!
MMORPG has published a Fate of Arun preview article featuring the Coliseum!



Enter TERA’s Coliseum mode, a new twist on PvP that doesn’t actually involve taking out the opposing team but rather focuses on two teams facing off against one another in a race to kill monsters.

Coliseum is a competitive mode that places two teams of three players each in opposition to one another in a timed battle to kill as many BAMs (Big [filtered] Monsters) as possible within a given time frame. Set up to cater to players from levels 60-65, gear is equalized on entering the match which consists of three five-minute rounds.

Check out the full article on the Coliseum on MMORPG.com!

I'll lock your other one.)

Welcome to the Coliseum!

The Coliseum battleground is competitive PvE—with a twist, pitting two teams of three against each other in a race to kill as many enemies as possible. For players who prefer the challenge of fighting BAMs, the Coliseum will scratch that itch, too.

Unlike traditional PvP, players on opposing teams do not directly engage each other in a face-to-
face battle, but instead focuses on scoring points by relentlessly taking down waves of monsters and BAMs on separate platforms. Using tokens earned from killing enemies, team leaders can purchase battleground-exclusive skills to help strengthen and support the team...or interfere with the opposition’s gameplan through disruptive debuffs.



Rules & Mechanics

• The Coliseum is specifically for characters of level 60–65, and gear is equalized.

• Each team consists of three players. You cannot queue for the Coliseum with less than three players or have more than one of any given class (or more than one healer).

• There are three rounds of combat, with each round lasting five minutes. The more mobs and BAMs your team can kill in that time, the more points you score! Each team’s goal is to score more points than the other. The team with the highest point total at the end of three rounds is the winner!

• Your team will also earn skill tokens. Between rounds, the party leader from each team has 45 seconds to spend those tokens to purchase buffs for their team, spawn additional monsters for the other team to fight, or cast debuffs on them.

Strategies

The Coliseum rewards teams for class balance, efficiency, speed, and strategy. You and your teammates should plan for every contingency, and be ready to adjust tactics based on how many points you score in a round, what kind of debuffs your opponents put on you, and whether you’re ahead or behind in the rankings.

The team that wins will consider each of these factors:

Efficiency—Speed is the name of the game in the Coliseum. This battleground rewards teams who can optimize their ability to effectively kill a variety of randomly-spawned monsters and BAMs. Reducing your cooldowns, focusing your attacks, and keeping a steady pace without spending too much time recovering will maximize your team’s overall performance.

Team Composition & Coordination—Does your team excel at launching powerful single-target attacks to take down BAMs quickly before clearing out the weaker mobs? Perhaps your tank groups enemies in a cluster, you buff damage, and your sorcerer hits the whole horde with a devastating AOE attack. Maybe you prefer an all-out melee assault that shreds through enemy defenses. Many combinations can be effective—as long as your team works together and communicates tactics effectively.

Staying Alive- Each wave of enemies is a little more difficult than the last, with BAMs appearing every few waves. There is no penalty for dying, but frequent deaths will take the focus off of optimizing your mob-killing pace and put a stop to your team’s momentum.

Strengths and Weaknesses—A DPS-focused team can lead to some quick kills early on, but if the other team is paying attention, getting hit with a damage-over-time skill can seriously hamper your team’s ability to stay alive. The best teams will know how to leverage their strengths and capitalize on their opponents’ weaknesses.

(I'm moving this to Off-Topic as that is where this thread belongs.)


Classic look, fine fabric, gorgeous embroidery—who wouldn’t want a beautiful new Asian silk dress? Perfect for parties and special events! Ladies will find them now in the Valkyon Outfitters and Valkyon Outfitters Online.

Purchase the classic white with blue embroidery Asian silk dress directly, or try for the rare dyeable silk with gold embroidery version from the Dressy Asian loot box. Then accentuate your look with a lovely chrysanthemum bloom in lovelorn red, pure white, deep black, or tranquil blue.
(Moving to the Warrior subforums. It will stay in view longer with more targeted audience. :) )
Prepaid Visa/MasterCard should work for EMP purchases as well, not sure if they are available in PH though.
I'm currently not aware of our plans for this type of events. (I'm sure we'll announce it if/when it happens though.)


Btw, as much as I like cats, posts like this risk being moved to the Off-Topic section. Just something to think about. :)



Fate of Arun is coming soon, so to help you prepare, we have a special treat! From Thursday, December 4 at 11 a.m. PST and continuing until Fate of Arun launches on Tuesday, December 16, you will earn twice the experience points for all of your kills!

This double XP event includes any monster you kill, including the ones you kill in dungeons! (It does not include quest XP.)

So shake off that Thanksgiving food coma and log into TERA right now!
@soggynuts, Thank you for checking! ^_^

@cvms3, If you sign up for elite status before our service provider change (there will be a maintenance), you will receive the monthly deliverable.

@DeluKnight, For players whose elite status renewed before we made the extension received the halo + Traveler's Insurance but didn't receive the gem bags (you seem to be in this category based on the renewal date), no need to worry! We're working to create a list of folks and will be sending them to the account in the next several days or so. No action is required on your part.
Update:

Players whose elite status renewed before we made the extension should have received the gem bags by now. (Please make sure to exit completely out of the launcher and restart it. :) )
We have completed the maintenance around 8 a.m. PST.

We are still seeing some forum errors though so we're working to address it.

As for the in-game announcement, the first one went out an hour before the maintenance hour. Lake of Tears had a crash at around 9 p.m. PST last night that was unrelated to the maintenance, so that may be the downtime in discussion. :)
Hello,

Festival of the Sun is inactive at the moment. (Maybe we'll see them again next year, but no guarantees.) Rootstock/Pond Faire/Bamarama is currently active and the beach activity being available is working as intended.
While we're also very excited about the new class, I don't have any information on this yet.

We are currently concentrating on our first official expansion release (Fate of Arun) on December 16, but I'm sure we'll be releasing more information on the new class in the future. :)
Hello,

Is she still having the issue? We had a 5-hour maintenance earlier today and while the game server maintenance was completed around 8 a.m. PST, we still had some issues for the forums until recently (including the 500 internal error mentioned here).

I haven't experienced it in the last hour or so, so would you let me know if she still is please?
Could you have her try a different browser? Also a complete restart of the PC if she hasn't yet?
The last month of monthly deliverable for the elite status (Fiery Halo, Traveler's Insurance and monthly gifts) has been extended to December!

Ending the elite status gift with November didn't allow us to provide the elite status gifts for some members of our community whose elite status renewed later than others, so if your elite status renews after the December 9 changes to December 25, you will be receiving December's monthly deliverable.

*The December monthly deliverable for elite status will be identical with November.
Please refer to the thread here. :)

Also I don't really see what the forum rating system has to do with racism.
Oh okay. Then it may be an account issue. The best thing would be to wait for our Support Team's response so that it can be investigated further. :(
