    This isn't a new class.

    This isn't a new dungeon.

    You literally do not even briefly touch on how the new hair system will work. The ONLY thing that is really new. HOW RNG will the new hair styles be..? Will they come in loot boxes? Or will you answer all of our prayers by letting us choose the hairstyle we want like an appearance voucher? Please tell us about how much and how we will obtain the new hair
  • @CobaltDragon this is for only guardian to twist

    Gear Enchantment and Upgrade
    We significantly reduced the amount of Gold, Golden Talents, and Silver Talents required, while increasing the amounts of other materials required to enchant and upgrade.

    Explanations for new hairstyles (from Tera EU) :

    Use the "Meruma's Hairstyle" or "Meruma's Magic Hairstyle" voucher. You can trade Fashion Coupons for them or buy them in the TERA Shop.
    Now you will see a preview of the seven hairstyles that are available for your character.
    Click "Confirm". A hairstyle will then be chosen at random and a voucher removed from your inventory.
    Meruma's Hairstyle (available for Fashion Coupons) immediately applies the new hairstyle. From that moment, you will be restyled and will have this hairstyle until you repeat the process or use a voucher to change your appearance.
    Meruma's Magic Hairstyle (available in the TERA Shop) allows you to choose whether you want to apply the new hairstyle immediately or keep your current one. The voucher is used in either case.

    I think the Ninja change could be better worded.

    Burning Heart can now only hit once per activation, but each hit causes triple damage.

    Why wasn't this included in the post? Why do we have to keep getting information from other publishers and from those who translate information from KTera?

    But other than that, I hope the UI optimization and revitalized loot tables will spice things up.

    • Removed set effects from accessories and gear.

    This really pisses me off =/
    Spend 300k on keytrap sets to my chars and know it was reduced to nothing...
  • In EU tera they spin some wheel to get the choose your hair magic ticket. (RNG)
    Each hair ticket is also 9,999 fashion coupons
    So I'm wondering if the prices are different or the same.

    I appreciate your reply @Selenya but since I hope this company takes a different and less money-hungry route I would like an official answer from one of the staff, verifying the information. This is obviously NOT EU Tera. @CobaltDragon

    KTera has the coupons as cash shop only, EU decided to use the fashion coupons for them, NA has not mentioned how they will work so yes we do need an official response but I doubt we'll get one until you can just see in-game how they will work....yay EmE.

    As mentioned by @TOLOVERU it was adjusted on JTera and then KTera a few weeks ago so you've had a fair amount of time, also honestly it should've been expected they would adjust past sets so they weren't better than the new content...same thing happened with Hyderad and older healer acc to force healers to use crit sets. Why would BHS keep old gear as BiS?

    We have not yet announced how we will be selling and/or distributing the hair coupons. This will be announced separately.

    Is ninja actually getting stronger or just having the way that skill works altered? Ninja and sorcerer are the weakest classes - why isn't sorc getting the adjustments mentioned in the essential mana post linked previously? If you really want to balance classes, increase crit rate on ninja's burning heart / circle of steel and make sorc's meteor crit glyph let it always crit for the poor people with 300+ crit factor.

    Also for the enchanting changes - as written it sounds like only items with talents will have those reduced (but darics and plates??) while all enchanting materials are increased. Is this how it is meant? Or for the base gear only...
    We *really* do not need an increase on emeralds/diamonds required for enchanting and stormcry mats already are basically only acquired through metamorphics - copper clasps are so rare. Not to mention the whole halved vg thing hurts getting them from iod... Really FM mats should drop starting in 431 and SC in 439 and it greater quantity than they are right now - and yet the opposite, more mats required, is what's happening? I agree that something needs to be done about the inflation of gold talent prices, but an increase in required mats past guardian is so not necessary they're hard enough to get as it is. I'd prefer to see the drop rates of gold talents increased in dungeons to give more people motivation to run those instead of farming legion / iod solo being the optimal thing to do.
