Store status, items quality and Store promotions are not satisfactory

http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/stay-cool-with-arctic-dragon-weapon-skins

seriously? 12K EMP to get 5 Dragon Loot boxes, I got around 30 loot boxes, I didn't even get a single Dragon Token, that's that, 5 makes any different? Is this gonna encourage anyone?

There is no cap at all, items you get from loot boxes are not worthy that much anymore, before you were saying I get mats for money I pay, now those mats are there just for playing the game so not worth getting them, absolutely no cap for failing, so that 12K EMP can go to waste to get a single item from loot boxes, Community's feedback is being ignored on this and has been ignored for too long.

Volcanic armor and weapon skin are so rare, seems you gotta spend 100$ to get one, but still no guarantee. Then Items are getting overpriced, Claw dragons, I mean come on 40$ for a mount? Organize the store in a way for more players to participate in promotions and encourage them to get EMP, don't do what BHS does, a short temporary profit from some players, then move on to another rushed, less detail project.

Also the sad part of these all is the new items are not detailed and also not as diversified as what they were before.

Please: Consider more players on Store status and promotions, it does more good to us and you in the end.

    you do know that even though the boxes are 195-250 emp nowadays, they give like 25x the amount of spellbinds, alks, ect. than the 150 lootboxes back in the day lol

    You are right, but back in the day, remember the value of Spellbind, MES, BES, Premium/Extensive Alka, You couldn't easily farm all that even for your main, that is why I said, mats you get are not worthy, you can farm for all your alts and can even sell the spare. If you are playing the game, you are self sufficient now to farm all the mats you need.

    I do agree that the RNG is bonkers and that there should be a failure cap, but I don't see the logic behind you complaining about the store promotion giving you free loot boxes. They don't have to do that, and the 5 loot boxes are valued at over 20 bucks worth of stuff they don't have to give you. Sure you probably won't get a dragon out of it- but it's still valued as a 20 dollar item that they're just straight up handing to you. Heck, I'm surprised they're even doing it. The only time I remember them giving out extra items like that was for black friday- and a week or so ago they handed out those floaty wings.

    You're right though, the item quality for cosmetics really has dropped. Older costumes like the tuxedo top and old maid uniforms had fabric textures that made them look detailed and polished, but the newer costumes are pretty textureless and look cheaper- for a rising price, too. There's also that thread you referenced where the warrior doesn't even hold their swords correctly. I've noticed that with other items too. Priest staves clip through the ground a lot nowadays, it looks bad.

    This is a super good point. The filler prizes just really aren't worth anything, especially with the gear revamp around the corner. EME might have to look at redoing the contents of all of their loot boxes unless they just want to make players exchange for tokens from old mats forever. I hope they don't keep irrelevant items in their cash shop RNG boxes.

    Including a failure cap, what would you want to see in RNG boxes instead as filler prizes, @LesbianVi? (I ask that because there's no way they'd ever get rid of RNG boxes completely lol)

    I disagree, especially when it comes to SES.

    I usually sell over 1K ses each patch, and I have over 10 chars to use them, I agree that SES is rare among others, I didn't mention it there also, but 450 EMP for SES? I pass.

    @Meningitis

    About the Cap I give an example, Bloodshadow Ninja Box is 1395 EMP, the Nightfall Ninjagi box is 2595. Now we use that as a cap, There were players that opened 140 Astrafury box to get Astrafury, that is 63K EMP, What the actual ........... that is 525$, I would buy a real life mount with that money.

    RNG can hurt you even more, now for 12K EMP for an Astrafury, isn't it still expensive? 100$ for a mount? and now 12K sound good and legit for many cause as I said they went over 50K EMP to get that mount.

    I want a Cap there like Ninjagi, you want try your luck, OK go get loot boxes, but we put a price cap of 2.8K EMP there for failing.

    Something like that.
  • i been complaining about this since forever Lol but the devs moght listen to you i spent $300 on trying to win my cvaracters a [filtered] white t shirt for elin and i only get one no bikini no black version but one damn bikini there was no caps at all and the amout of alk you get from it doesnr make up for any thing which is easly consume trying to 15 the amount of money i spent trying ti get a cosmetic i would be full deathwrack :/ atleast make sure we can obtain atleast 1 lootbox item with out and rng upon a purchase of $100 of emp with out more rng ontop of more rng that probably how you lost some of the player base because this is to rng the store over price and only get higher stop being a money grab and actually make it easier i play tera for fun i spend money on tera to for more fun but you making every thing over price removes the fun and add more rng onto the game the game already bad enough with rng battle grounds rng dg plz fix the rng or loose more people unless that what you want.. lol

    I agree with you @LesbianVi, this has gone too far. The game has become pay to play and no one noticed, you can't do any damage without the elite drug and it is too expensive to buy. The amount of VGC you get without elite is too low and the dungeons runs are very limited.
    The Tera store is nothing but a big rip off right now, it's like ur playing in casino and ur feeding a slot machine ur money. I don't gamble and I will not.
    The limit on account mounts and pets is also another rip off, soon we will have to remake a brawler and possibly a gunner so all my per character mounts and pets are gone and my money was wasted. This of course reduces the enjoyment of the game.
    I recommend increasing the price on the items you have on rng box from the normal nondyeable version and remove the rng box issue so ppl can actually spend some money. Also give all mounts and pets, account pet and mount option.
    @Spacecats I'm not sure if this is ur department but if you can ask around and give us a idea of what EME plan or point of view regarding this thread.
    Thank you.

    I'm not saying I like getting SES that way, just that they're difficult to get in-game (except from events).

    Ok then if you don't want the enchanting mats and you have emp you can just sell your emp and buy the rng item you want instead of opening them. If you're a f2p player you can just sell your excess enchanting mats and buy the rng item you want off the broker. Things are priced on the broker such that most listed items on there compensate for assumed risk and if you don't want the risk you pay the price accordingly.

    That's all well and good but it doesn't answer my question of "what would you want as replacement filler prizes" other than the mats we have now. Also....what? The nightfall ninjagi isn't in a loot box last time I checked? The loot box version is elin only, so there really isn't a cap there. The actual loot box one is still uncapped rng. I do agree though, going over $50 for a single dress or character bound mount is ridiculous. Buuuut to reference another post-

    People always spend money regardless. EME won't change what's proven profitable. :(
