It says aug 13 on the top of the alliance website.

The whole calendar was actually designed to make the creepiest ASCII art we could.

But in all seriousness, we did try to consider east coast players in the schedule. The current thought is that they have a 7p-9p slot and night owls have the 11p-2p slot. Obviously you can do both.

You don't have to be there for the entire PVP time to do Alliance stuff. The only Alliance objective that actually requires a PVP time is the Infiltration quest. Noctenium Extractor competition is much more fun with PVP, but can be done without.

I think opinions may change once this all plays out. Maybe this schedule is perfect, or the worst ever, but it'll take at least till Tuesday to find out :).
I'll just put together a few options and put it to a vote over the weekend. I'll have a link up later.

I knew it!

Anyway... isn't the alliance zone OWPvP all the time? It's just that times outside of the red slots are when your base camp is safe from anyone coming in and killing you or the NPC who provides the quests.

If you are out and about in the maps, regardless of PvE server, you can be killed right?

AkizukiRyou on 08/08/2013, 02:11 PM - view
Okay well the, another question, on the PVP server can an outlaw still attack anyone outside of a safe zone? Even people in their own alliance? Or are they free to hang out there even when outlawed.

Outlaw does not work in Alliance Zones at all. You *can* outlaw against your own Alliance members in the open world.
survey posted on first post.
Well this thread is going nowhere. If we could make it a skill on the elite bar, we would, and that's our final answer.

Good news! If you go to this page: http://tera.enmasse.com/alliance and scroll all the way down, you will see a few guilds for your server.

And even better, if you go to http://tera-forums.enmasse.com/forums/general-discussion/topics/Guild-Fair-Saturday-August-10 , you will see that there is a Guild Fair coming up on Saturday!
Some players have been impacted by an “Unknown File Error” over the last couple of patches. When this error occurred we asked that you go through the steps outlined in this FAQ which resolved a majority of the cases. Our team here has been working on a solution to automate these steps and create a more seamless patching process. As with any “fix” there are always use cases that could still come up. So, while we won’t say its 100% fixed we are fairly confident after testing we have solved the majority of these issues.

What happens now?
When the patcher detects an unknown, corrupt, or missing file it will automatically run a repair to replace them. You will notice the progress bar go from downloading to verifying a few times.

How long does the repair take?
Speed is dependent on several factors such as connection, PC, bandwidth, etc, but internal testing has taken 30 minutes or longer. We ask for a little patience if you are in the repair process.

What do I need to know if a repair is run?
Let the repair finish. If you close the launcher before the repair locates the corrupt or missing file you will get the play button after you sign back in, but the game will crash with an FFFF:FFFF error. You will then need to run the repair manually.

The estimated time for repair is very long
The time predicted to complete can be inaccurately long. It will NOT take “More than seven days” to run the verify & repair. Please don’t panic or exit before it finishes – the progress time for verify/repair can be unreliable.

The repair is stuck at 99%
If the repair is stuck at 99%, meaning it has been at 99% for several minutes, close out of the launcher and open it back up. It will finish after you sign in and should not be impacted by the above bullet point. In the rare use case the patch does not finish, you will need to run the repair manually.

Insufficient Free Disk Space
If there is not enough disk space for the repair the patch/repair will fail; the Play button will not be enabled (turn Yellow) and the message in the Blue status bar will say “Source file was corrupted”. If you run into the situation, please ensure that you have at least 25 GB of free space on the drive that TERA is installed on. It will NOT complete until there is enough free disk space.

Message for file modders.
If you have modded files and the patcher runs a repair, all modded files will automatically be replaced with the correct versions when the repair is complete.

How does this impact game defaults (UI, keybindings, etc.)?
It does not change a thing so your keybindings and UI should stay the same.

We hope this helps!

From looking at all the guild apps on the guild app thread--was it really a good idea to do this event in Freedom Plaza? Velika lags enough as is when there's just 100 people there. There's gonna be thousands and it's gonna be worse than Nexus I bet. Event should have probably been held on the Velika outskirts.

That was actually my first choice, except that I thought it was too tempting for certain people to swoop down and kill all the lowbies gathered to join a guild on PvP servers. I mean, I want to encourage owpvp and all but that would have been an overkill. :)
Hey everyone,

Please note that the pre-registration deadline is 6 p.m. Pacific Time tomorrow (Friday)!

Also due to the extreme popularity of the event, we had to change one of the pre-registration perks.

Instead of the 10 sets of fireworks in guild names, we will be offering 3 Powerful Savage Draught (+5 Power to all guild members for guild rank 2 and above) and 3 Potion of Cultural Opportunity (+5% XP to all guild members for guild rank 2 and above).

Thank you for understanding!

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

We asked you for your best TERA-themed recipes, and you put on your chef’s hats and answered the call. After poring over a number of delectable entries, our judges selected the three that best captured the design esthetic of our new foodie weapon skins and accessories.

The winners are:

Slayer OP Chopped Salad by Pish on Lake of Tears

Shish Kabob by Ubat on Tempest Reach

Big A** Pocky by Zeqhanis on Tempest Reach

Each of the three winners will receive a foodie weapon skin and all four of the foodie hats!

We also have honorable mentions! Each of the honorable mentions will receive a foodie weapon skin:

Perfect Paka’s Perfect Poultry by Ulumaika on Tempest Reach

Panda Pop Rice Krispie Treat by Caetana on Celestial Hills

6. Enjoy!


Zeqhanis's Big A** Pocky by Zeqhanis on Tempest Reach

Ingredients for Breadsticks

2.5 tsp of active dry yeast, 3.5 cups of bread flour, 2.5 cups of all purpose flour, 0.5 cup of water, 1 cup of fat-free milk, 1 tsp salt, 2 oz confectioner's sugar, 1 stick of butter, 2 oz tahini, 3.5 oz honey

Recipe for Breadsticks

1. Microwave milk and butter in a mixing bowl until warm; stir in yeast, and allow this mixture to sit while you thoroughly mix your dry ingredients.

2. Combine all breadstick ingredients in your large mixing bowl, and stir, while slowly adding water. Continue stirring until you obtain a dough which is well mixed, with a firm, yet malleable texture.

3. Cover the mixture, and refrigerate for two hours. During this time, evenly sprinkle all purpose flour on a rolling surface, and preheat your oven to 325F.

4. Evenly divide your dough into 3 sections, rolling them into well-floured sticks; do not worry if their shape begins to spread.

5. Place your dough evenly spaced on a pre-greased cookie tray, and allow to cook for 6 minutes.

6. Carefully remove the tray from heat, and divide each loaf along it's length.

7. Carefully reshape them into sticks, while you pre-heat your oven to 350F.

8. At this point you will want to bake your giant B.A.P.sticks for 20 minutes, turning the cookie sheet, and continuing for 15 to 20 minutes, based upon desired darkness.

9. At this point, drop your oven's temperature to 180F, and cook for an hour (skip this step if you want soft breadsticks).

Ingredients for Coating

0.75 of a cup broken almonds, 0.75 of a cup broken pistachios, 2 cups of milk chocolate chips, 2 cups of white chocolate chips, 3 TS of Fat-Free Milk, 1 tbs Hershey's strawberry flavored syrup.

Recipe for Coating

1. During the breadsticks' low-temperature "drying phase," combine 1.5 Tablespoons of milk with 2 cups of chocolate chips in a microwavable container, or a double boiler.

2. Once your breadsticks have finished cooking, begin melting your chocolate on low-medium heat/power.

3. Once molten, carefully ladle the chocolate onto your breadsticks, and either set them on wax paper, or, preferably, tie them with string to a cabinet handle, with a drip cup beneath their free-hanging ends.

4. Once the chocolate has solidified, add an additional layer, and carefully roll the sticks over a tray of broken almonds.

5. Set them aside, and prepare the white chips for the strawberry B.A.P.s in the same fashion.

6. Place half a cup of white chips in a separate container (this will be used to create white stripes).

7. Stir 1 tablespoon strawberry syrup into the remainder, repeating the process utilized for the chocolate B.A.P., this time with Pistachios taking the place of Almonds.

8. Finally, drizzle the unflavored white chocolate set aside earlier from the blade of a knife to form patterns, then place your finished treats in the refrigerator to harden.

9. Enjoy!

Vanilla or Chocolate? - Vanilla, the real vanilla bean
House or Breakbeats? - Neither ><
Caribbean or Mediterranean? - Mediterranean
Discovery Channel or Camping? - Discovery channel
Maid Outfits or Leotards? - Both
Tea or Coffee? - Tea, but not that caffeine free herbal stuff.

When is the release date for Alliance patch? - Very soonish?
When is the release date for Magician's Fortress (and new gear sets)? - We'll get there when we get there!
Question: for the single player vault, if your alliance controls the least amount of noctenium, does that mean that alliance cant enter the vault or is the CD a lot longer than the alliance with the most amount of noctenium?
- Answer: The cooldown is same for all players for the Alliance vault. If your alliance controls the least amount of noctenium at the end, you have less time slots allowed to enter the vault. The alliance with the most noctenium has a higher chance to get more of the slots.

Question: could you guys put up the stats of the new alliance gear and the recipe to crafted gear?
- Answer: There needs to be some mystery in the game :)

it's still swimsuit season right?

j/k. do whatever. :)
Vitriolshark got consumed in a Sharknado.
Dailies @ 5am PDT.
Elite Bar @ 5pm PDT.
Nothing else changes except that we are removing the 5 3-day Village Atlases that we added a few months back. So we took away 15 days of VA and gave you 30 days of VA.

The two additions on the bar refresh just like the boosts. If you click on the Elite Gift Box, it will deliver into your inventory. You will not be able to get another one until the Elite Bar resets. Just like the XP boost and all other boosts, if you do not use it that day, you still only get 1 the next day.
Everything already delivered to you will stay. This change goes into effect next week and delivery won't change until that time.
Zulficar Fortress, Bastion or Velika. Sometimes Kanstria. :)
Hey guys, sorry for the late update. We tracked down the issue with PIN's purchased in US and resolved the issue. This should now work. Thanks for your patience.
The maintenance is complete. Thanks!
Hello, everyone!

For this week's En Masse stream, we will have Tonka and Aliila show us the alliance patch! (If you haven't, say hi to Aliila here!)

Join us at 3 p.m. Pacific Time on Friday, August 9!



We’ve made some improvements to the elite perk bar in the next build, and I’m here to walk you through the changes. It’s pretty simple, but it will affect all Elite Status members, so read on!

First, you will see a village atlas on the elite perk bar, but it won’t be usable directly from the bar. Instead, when you click on the button you see below, it will deposit a 1-day village atlas into your inventory (make sure you have enough room!). This new village atlas replaces the 3-day village atlases we added to the Elite delivery a while back, and those will be removed upon implementation of the 1-day version. The 30-day village atlas will still be delivered, and is still the best atlas to use for your main. The new 1-day village atlas will be there in case you can’t find your main atlas.

Second, we will be introducing a special elite gift box that will be obtained through the elite perk bar as well. Just like the 1-day village atlas, just click the button on the bar, and it will deposit the elite gift box into your inventory (make sure you have enough room!). The box will deliver one of the following when opened: extensive alkahests x5, masterwork alkahests x5, spellbinds x5, or master enigmatic scrolls x2. Or you could receive various 1-day items from Valkyon Outfitters such as costumes, skins, or pets.

These two new items will refresh daily at the same time as your other Elite buffs. We hope these additions will enhance your game time as an Elite Status member.
OtakuDan on 08/07/2013, 03:18 PM - view
So, are the gift boxes renewed everyday like the other elite buffs or do they renew on the day of Elite payment is due?

"These two new items will refresh daily at the same time as your other Elite buffs. We hope these additions will enhance your game time as an Elite Status member." :)
We've been trying our best with what we're able to, so happy to see improvements. :)
Hello everyone,

My name is Aliila, I am very excited to be the new associate producer for En Masse Entertainment. I have been with EME before TERA’s initial launch last year, and this is my official introduction to the TERA community. Life as a gamer for me started with Duck Hunt at the age of 5. Final Fantasy XI is my first “serious” MMO, followed by many years of World of Warcraft and the Burning Crusade is still my favorite expansion. As for TERA, currently I have a level 60 character on Tempest Reach and working on my second and third. I am looking forward to seeing all of you on the forum and meeting all of you in many of our future EME events.

Speaking of EME events, I will be on our Twitch stream this Friday (8/9/2013) giving a preview of the Alliance patch. I will also try to answer some of your questions about the Alliance system. I hope to see you there.

What class is your level 60? - Archer
Favorite class and dungeon? - Priest and don't have a favorite
Favorite cereal? - Kix (the berry one)!
Pirate or swimsuit? - Pirate
Is your 60 an elin? - No, castanic female! horns > ears

Hi too ;)
Mite on 08/07/2013, 03:34 PM - view

Do we pronounce your name as A-lee-la or A-lye-la? :o

A-lee-la :)
You're going to want many different levels in your Alliance, not just 60s. The Velika buff applies to all levels, where the Allemantheia buff does not. Kaiator will be great for PVPers. You get a significant amount of Alliance points for leveling as well. This isn't saying what you guys have said about the Alliances is wrong, I'm just explaining this side of things :).

We're in the middle of putting together a game guide for Alliance that will explain as much as we can. If you all just wanted the names of the Alliances and where the halls were located, we could do that too, it just doesn't seem... great.

More info will come REALLY soon everyone. This time next week you won't even have to ask (knock on wood)
Runespider on 08/06/2013, 10:30 AM - view
That's kinda the point.

Info last week would of been nice, soon it won't be worth telling us anything cause it will already be in the game. Lots don't even know it's coming.

I know it's probably bhs fault but still. Don't bigup new stuff enough, this would be like them advertising the new superman film the day before it launces.

Agreed, but we don't want to put out misinformation either. Also if the new superman sequel launched a month and a half after the first one, they'd face similar problems.
Chayna on 08/06/2013, 06:37 PM - view
what if i just don't want to join an alliance? i have zero desire for any pvp. which is why i joined a pve server.

You don't have to join anything you don't want to. You can also join an Alliance and never PVP and still contribute.
Really love the facial expressions. :D

I... I want to be in your static just so that I can get drawn... ;_____;
This is a reminder for folks to preregister! Because we're coordinating to have some of the preregistered guilds to be featured on the alliance webpage, the deadline for a chance to be selected for the alliance page is by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time today, August 6.

If you preregister after tonight's alliance webpage deadline, you will receive all other perks.
The best way to get this sorted out is to contact our Support Team, as the fellow players are not equipped to handle this. :(
Hello folks,

We'll have an in-game store maintenance at 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time tomorrow, August 7. We'll tweak with some text displays and grouping of the items and the expected downtime of the in-game store is approximately 30 minutes.

The web store will remain available and will function normally through the in-game store maintenance. Thank you for your patience.

Guys... please sign up in the designated thread located here. :)

The new alliance system is on its way, and you need to join as a guild—or join a guild that’s already in the alliance you want.

To help get you ready, TERA is hosting a Guild Fair on Saturday, August 10, from 3 p.m. PDT to 6 p.m. PDT! Come by Velika’s Freedom Plaza and meet guild recruiters—or talk to prospective new members on behalf of your guild.

Looking for a Guild?

If you’re looking to join a guild, just stop by the podium in Velika’s Freedom Plaza. You’ll find representatives from different guilds on hand to talk to you about the benefits of joining! Just look for the players riding struthio mounts; those are the guild reps, and they’ll have all the info you need about their respective guilds.

Are You a Participating Guild?

If your guild is planning to participate in the Guild Fair, your best bet is to preregister by filling out a form in this thread. Guilds that preregister will receive a variety of perks, including:

1. Ten sets of fireworks that spell out your guild’s name—great for advertising your presence (or taking awesome screenshots)!

2. One temporary struthio mount for the guild representative during the Guild Fair, so prospective guildies can more easily spot you in the crowd!

3. A chance for your guild to be listed on our new alliance website. Preregister by Tuesday, August 6 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, and you could be one of five randomly-chosen guilds on your server to display your guild’s name and recruiting forum thread (or guild website).

Preregistered guild representatives need to gather at Velika’s Freedom Plaza by 2 p.m. PDT on Saturday, August 10 to prepare for the guild fair. EME staff will be around between 2 and 3 p.m. PDT for preregistration perk distribution.

Even if you don’t preregister, you are still welcome to hang out in the plaza and recruit, or just show your guild pride. En Masse staff will also be checking in on all servers to show our support—and who knows what could happen when the fair draws to a close?

Happy recruiting—and we’ll see you at the Guild Fair!

For players receiving the "Unknown File Error" following today's maintenance, please follow the steps in the FAQ on this error, located at:


Don't forget the last step, which is running the Repair function. It's important!
Yo we looking into this
We'll be restarting in 5 minutes. Short notice due to emergencies and stuff. Just TR.
Pinning this, nice job!

We'd love to include anyone and everyone but the restrictions are in place to keep everyone safe for legal and tax reasons. :(
(Please remember to follow the forum rules on petitions. Thanks. :( )
We'll have a fix out shortly!
You can either go with Kueko's way or this one:

We've updated the Game.version located in the faq here: http://support.enmasse.com/tera/unknown-file-error

Updating that is all you should need to do to fix this. Kueko and this way are both ways of obtaining the correct game.version.

And yes, we will look at fixing this problem before the next big patch :).
Patching up the last of the airship exploit in CS... hopefully
omg this thread.

we are aiming for mid august.
I know there are other threads but I'm afraid information may be buried. If you are experiencing the "Unknown File Error" problem please follow the steps below:

1) Shut down the TERA launcher

2) Right click and select "SAVE AS" for these files listed below to save them on your computer:

3) Please these files above into your TERA folder and OVERWRITE the ones that are already there with the newer versions above.

4) Start the TERA launcher and click on TOOLS at th e bottom of the launcher.

5) Select the REPAIR function

6) Do not interrupt the repair process while it's running as it can take several minutes to complete and at times appears to have no activity. The time to complete the process will bounce around from days to hours to minutes. Don't worry!

7) Once it complete, you should be able to enter the game again.

Hello, folks!

The next content update will be coming this month and we are very excited! As you already know, this update involves TERA’s political system going through a transformation from the old vanarch system to the new alliances!

In the new alliance system, you will be choosing one of the three alliances in TERA, and this will be an important decision as each alliance has different advantages to offer. Once you find the alliance you want to be a part of, you will join the alliance as a guild. This means, being a part of a guild you feel passionate about will have even more meaning on top of the usual pluses!

For those of us who haven’t found the perfect ‘home’ in TERA yet or for guilds that are looking to grow their ranks (or just want to show their guild pride!), we will be hosting a Guild Fair on Saturday, August 10. This will be a perfect opportunity to find like-minded people, make new friends and find a guild of your dreams!


When: Saturday, August 10
Time:3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Pacific Time
Where: In front of the podium in Velika’s Freedom Plaza

Are you looking for a guild to join?

Just stop by at the podium in Velika’s Freedom Plaza between 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 10!

There will be representatives from different guilds to talk to! The guild representatives will be easily distinguishable by their special item, Squawk, so look out for them!

Are you a participating guild?

1. If you will be representing your guild in the Guild Fair, the best way is to preregister by filling out a form in the preregistration thread! Preregistered guilds will receive a variety of perks like the following:

a. 10 sets of fireworks that spell your guild’s name 3 Powerful Savage Draught (+5 Power to all guild members for guild rank 2 and above) and 3 Potion of Cultural Opportunity (+5% XP to all guild members for guild rank 2 and above)
: Great for getting people’s attention or for screenshots!Good for new and established guilds! This change is due to the extreme popularity of the event, thank you for understanding.

b. 1 Squawk (temporary) for the guild representative during the Guild Fair

c. A chance for the guild to be listed on our new alliance website
: 5 randomly chosen guilds from each server will get to display the guild’s name, server name, and their recruiting forum thread or the guild website on our brand new webpage for the alliance update.
>>> Important: Due to the alliance webpage schedule, the deadline for a chance to be featured on the alliance webpage is by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time today, August 6.

2. After preregistering, make sure to have at least one or more guild representative present in Velika’s Freedom Plaza from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, 8/10. (The preregistration perk items will be distributed before the event.)

*Minea's Core
Just recently we pushed out a hotfix patch that disabled a lot of Corsair's Stronghold exploit and we're continuing to work with BHS to make it impossible. *I'm assuming this is one type of PvP exploits you're speaking of.)

Also we've been requesting players to let us know about the people who abuse the system, so if you encounter any, please make sure to report them so that we can investigate and take appropriate action.

Lastly, please note that we do not share moderation action information with those who are not directly involved to respect everyone's privacy. Thanks.
Hello folks,

At 3 p.m. PDT on Friday (8/2), Tonka and Minea will be running Manaya's Core (hard mode)!

Join us on TwitchTV!

Currently we have no plans to implement a divided Corsair's Stronghold according to different levels. There are other level 60 exclusive PvP opportunities as well, so we think Corsair's Stronghold is a great chance for non-60 characters to participate in organized PvP.

Also, a big part of Corsair's Stronghold is about team coordination. No two team will exactly be alike but both teams will have their challenges whether it be levels, miscommunication or language barrier, etc. Overcoming that is one of the things we need to do in order to achieve victory. :)

Is she the last boss? D: (with that image i remember seeing on the forums)

Considering everyone will have to survive the instance with MY heals, why yes, I am the last boss. xD
Oo, great job! Your work is featured on our official Facebook and Twitter! :)
The eye patch is very appropriate for the guild name! xD
Hello everyone,

We will have an all-server maintenance at 7 a.m. PDT tomorrow morning to further address an exploitable bug in Corsair's Stronghold. Expected duration of the maintenance is approximately an hour.

All servers will be under maintenance at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time:

  • Mount Tyrannas - PvP
  • Lake of Tears - PvP
  • Valley of Titans - PvP
  • Tempest Reach - PvE
  • Ascension Valley - PvE
  • Celestial Hills - RP PvE

For real-time server status, please refer to the Server Status page. Thank you.
We received the build from BHS last Friday the 26th and we have been going through content the last 2+ days. We really haven't had enough time with the build to announce anything, but once we get comfortable with the changes we will push information out.

We are targeting August for the release.

translation: don't get your hopes up

bwhahaha don't worry EME you know I'll always love you

No translation needed. We never know if there will be any bugs that force us to push. If those don't happen then August it is.

Why not just announce: hey guys we received the build today we're working on tests as we speak target is still august we'll keep you guys in the loop if we get issues :)

... that is open communication with your community. why do companies try to be so secret about it, scared that others would try to release something t the same time and polluting your launches?

We announced August for Alliance update on June 11th. That link is here: http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/a-note-from-treeshark -- because nothing has changed since then (meaning Treeshark's post is still valid) we didn't post an update.

That being said...there's always room to improve communication and transparency. We will continue to work on that.

We're also excited to see the entries, I'm sure they will make us hungry! xD

Also just making sure to clarify that you have to actually make the dish and take a picture of your creation as the submission. :)
To clarify just in case there is confusion, you can use any ingredients from any foodie skin. So you can always choose an inexpensive ingredient (like a banana) to use. It doesn't have to match the skin you want to win. :)

How’d they get started? How do they plan to tackle the new alliance content? Find out everything you need to know about the Tempest Reach guild Aegis in our newest guild interview.

1. First, could you introduce Aegis to folks on other servers or those who may not know of the guild?

Where do I start? In beta, I dubbed Aegis as "Business Casual"—a place for ex hardcore players to relax and still clear things together and enjoy each other's company. Once the MCHM patch hit, we became a static guild: a matchmaking guild for people to find statics and find a place that they could call home and enjoy each other's company. Now it has become a place where people seeking the "end game" of TERA can land. We PVP and clear whatever challenges there are to PVE from MCHM to topping the COF Mark III scores. As the times change, my members’ demands change, and the guild along with it. With everything that changes, the guilds that adjust and still maintain their cores excel.

2. How would you describe your guild? What does a typical day look like?

Anyone that's close to me or the Aegis members knows how I describe it: We are like a band of pirates. There is a great sense of family amongst the members, but at the same time I know if something went sour, a mutiny could happen at any second. The thing with TERA and its state right now is that membership is very fragile. Aegis has gotten a lot of attention lately, and that is subject to change at any moment like every guild. We take things day by day and enjoy ourselves and each other’s company—each sweet or bitter moment.

3. What have been the most memorable moments as a guild? What has been the most difficult or rewarding part of being in Aegis?

I love my typical stories. The underdogs that rise to the occasion or the band of misfits that band together and become amazing. In beta when Aegis first started, we were a motley crew. The members consisted of my real life friends, people I've encountered from other games, and people that I used to raid or chase the end game with in other games. In those typical stories, my favorite parts have been those montages where everyone works their butts off and becomes a unit. For Aegis, those similar moments have happened in three different instances. The first was when I initially blogged about the Aegis mentality before release and the mass of people that showed interest in what I was trying to start. The second was after I took a break from the game and restarted Aegis in what I call the 2.0 phase, and finally when Aegis exploded. We always tried to maintain a mid- to small-sized guild with close friends or players we played consistently with. As guilds started dying, the relationships we maintained ended up benefiting us greatly and we tripled in size. The epic turning points in our history have made this guild amazing. Each of my members brings something unique to the table and we all love each other for it.

4. We are seeing some preparations for the upcoming alliance system from Tempest Reach. Now, we may have heard a rumor here and there that Aegis is a part of this preparation. Anything you want to share at this time? What role do you see Aegis playing in the future?

It's not a big secret at the moment. After seeing what may come with the future alliance patch in August, Aegis plans to try and be one of the forerunners and claim one of the three designated spots on our server. I know that there is a lot going on and not everyone knows what the plans for their guild are, but regardless of the outcome, Aegis wants to experience this next patch to the fullest and have plenty of fun while doing it. Right now we are looking for guilds that are similar to us or bring something unique to the table that we can share with one another and enjoy what surprises the game has to offer next, and we hope to experience it to the fullest. While we know that alliances are in our near future, there is still a lot that is uncertain and the patches on KTERA only have so much to tell us. I do excitedly talk about the alliance patch and what is to come a lot. It is really great that I have guild members who share the same excitement and don't get sick of my ramblings in regards to it. Like I stated before, with such a massive content patch coming soon, we can't wait to see what comes and how we can experience it to the fullest.

5. If you are currently recruiting, what are you looking for from a potential candidate? Do you have guild-wide guidelines or a philosophy that you follow?

While Aegis is technically not recruiting at the moment, we do make exceptions for extraordinary people. The two greatest characteristics that we look for are flexibility and a great personality. With the content and PvP the way it is now, anyone can really pick up what TERA has to offer. If we find someone we enjoy playing with, gearing that person up as well as investing in them is not a problem. It's just like with any job. If you love what you are doing, it doesn't really feel like work. Skill isn't the biggest deal for us. While some players are no longer with us, we've taken them from players who've had no hard mode experiences or gear to top-notch and skilled PvE players on Tempest Reach, contending for some of the top spots on our server. If you're seriously interested in joining us, visit our forums at AegisTERA.enjin.com. We have more information about us there. In terms of philosophy, the only one I try to enforce is that everyone gets along. The people that pass through Aegis sometimes say that they never really got much play time or felt ostracized from the guild. My response most of the time is that they did not put enough effort into getting to know the core of the guild. I have some fantastic members regardless of their skill level. If you got to know them and got to know the guild as a whole, I promise that each and every member would try and take the time to help one another so that we can see each other improve as a whole. The other aspect I try to instill is that every guild has a unique feel to it. If people are passing through, then the best of luck to them in other guilds. If they left, it doesn't mean we hunt them down, just that Aegis was not the best fit for them. While some people see it as corny, I do try and wish that each person who leaves finds a place they can call home and enjoy the game.

6. Anything you’d like to say to the guild members? To En Masse?

To EME, you guys are great. All the experiences I've had with GM's have been very pleasant. If I had to make a suggestion, I would like to see a few events aside from just double drop weekends. I think one of the hardest things as a guild master has been trying to keep people together. With the exception of my core members, as I've recruited—and I think this goes with any guild—there weren't many ways to keep people interested in the guild. Once MCHM became fairly mundane, lots of players felt like they didn't need their guilds and jumped ship, only to come back when 20-player raids were established. It was the 20–player raids that forced quality players back into larger guilds so we could play together. I have seen some of the future content videos and am very excited, but whether it's a PvP server event or more dungeons that push large quantities of players and guilds together, that's what I would most love to see.

To my guild, I love each and every one of you. You guys are the weirdest bunch I've ever met. Some of you, I've played with in other games or have gone to high school with; and some of you are strangers who I've been privileged with meeting since we've started playing together. Each of you brings something unique to the table that is Aegis, and I'm glad that you have stayed on board to help contribute to the name that we rock in game. And back to En Masse, we excitedly wait for our castle and what you have ready to show us in the upcoming content. Regardless of what's coming next, we look forward to it.

The patch this morning fixes this.
We'll have patch notes up soon'ish. There were a few other Corsairs fixes as well.
These casinos were given a short leash. While a lot of them did abide by the rules, the reports of scamming and associations with RMT were far too high. Did a few ruin it for all? Yes. But this is done.
Please check my 2nd post. :)

Try running TERA as an administrator please.

If that doesn't work, please try the following steps:

1.) Shut down the TERA Launcher
2.) Right click and select "SAVE AS" for the 3 files listed below to save them onto your computer


3.) Place the 3 files above into your TERA folder and OVERWRITE the ones that are already there with the newer versions above
4.) Start the TERA Launcher and click on TOOLS at the bottom of the launcher
5.) Select the Repair function
6.) Do not interrupt the Repair process while it's running as it can take several minutes to complete and at times appear to have no activity, and the time to complete the process will bounce around from days to hours to minutes. Don't worry!
7.) Once it completes, you should be able to enter the game again

(Please don't bump threads as it's against the forum rules. Also for personalized help on issues you're experiencing, please contact our Support Team so that we can help you better. Thanks!)
We waited a little while to see how things went with the in-game casinos. We have received numerous complaints about scamming as well as chat spam. We also found that many of these were linked to Real Money Transactions, which of course violate the terms of service for TERA. Because of this, we have made the determination that operating in-game casinos will no longer be allowed. Over the coming days, players who continue to operate these casinos will receive a request from us to stop.

We do understand that this is likely a case of a few bad apples ruining something for everyone. We appreciate the players who ran these fairly and provided an enjoyable activity for other players. We will be updating the rules of conduct located at http://tera.enmasse.com/standalone-pages/rules-of-conduct to reflect this new policy.
looking forward to this!
