(Suggestion) Federation Bill Merchant & TERA Emporium

edited July 2017 in Game Suggestions
Federation Bill Merchant
A couple of years back, 3 horses were added to the Federation Bill Merchant because the original method of obtaining them were removed from the game. Despite them having 275 speed, people like myself enjoy the fact that we can collect them. It's now 2017, and more mounts have become restricted because you cannot earn them naturally in game, and I was wondering if these mounts can be added to the Federation Bill Merchant. There is also pets and some accessories that you can no longer normally obtain in the game.

TERA Emporium
When this bill system was first released, the plan was to use this as a way to earn retired items from the TERA store and dungeon/achievement rewards. This allowed players to have full access to items when they weren't obtainable by normal means. However, with the recent addition of the TERA emporium system, it has come to my attention that its purpose is similar to what federation bills should of been. With that being said, I myself as a regular player would not mind if I had to invest into reward credits to obtain these items instead of using the federation bill store.

    Whole federation bill system and fashion coupon needs revamp. It also a good start tho.

    I would prefer it to not have items you could get from achievements only, even if they are not obtainable now. I wouldn't mind a colored variation though so they can be differentiated. I love my Orc mask (from Nexus achievement and my Black Steed from another achievement even though it looks very similar if not the same to the pirate mount, ugh) but I wouldn't want to see everyone with one if they never did achievement. A different colored variant I would most definitely not mind though.
  • The entire Federation Bill store and Fashion Coupon store is beyond tired and worn out. It's way overdue for a revamp.

    That's where the nearly identical comes into place, my friend. The value of your item will be just as rare, while the others will be an entirely different ID with the same aesthetic purpose. People felt the same way you did when these items first came out in the federation bill store, including the reputation cosmetics. The difference between the federation bill store's reputation cosmetics and the regular reputation cosmetics is all in it's ID (eg: regular and premium)... and people are content with showing off their regular item, while the only obtainable ones are the premium.

    As for the Black Pearl, that's still obtainable by normal means, and because of that I did not add it to the list... The Dwarf Orcan Mask was once obtainable as a premium item during an event, which shows that BHS/En Masse is willing to bring back achievement rewards with new IDs.

    Is the Black Pearl from that pirate thing? I thought it looked JUST like my mount and wasn't happy about that. And I don't even notice the ID of items I just notice the look. So for me I'd prefer a recolor to differentiate them then and ID that says premium or regular. Just personal opinion

    I respect that. I personally don't think it's okay to limit new players from items they cannot get anymore, so I thought by giving them a premium form with a different description would keep both sides happy. The purpose of the Federation Bill Merchant was to obtain retired or unobtainable items, after all.

    The only problem with recoloring an item is that my request would become BHS's problem and not En Masse. En Masse can create and add new or existing items with a new ID and description, while changing a model would be up to the developers. I want to try to keep my request simple and easy, you know?

    Some of these items already exist in TERA NA, I only request them to be re-added to the game:

    Ghilliedhu Mask
    Original: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/50069/
    Premium: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/131464/

    Dwarf Orcan Mask
    Original: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/50072/
    Premium: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/131466/

    Ghost Knight Helm
    Original: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/50056/
    Premium: http://teradatabase.net/us/item/131455/

    Paper Masks

    Unlike the others I've listed, you're still able to obtain rainbow from the strongbox loot-table (during jackpot events). The pets, cheeks and totes are able to be purchased with EMP, so I wouldn't add them either. I did have the alliance masks there, but I believe with the current player uproar, it's best to leave them out... at least until things settle.

    Well I don't know if anyone would be interested in them, but maybe the horses from alliance would be nice to have in Fed Bills too.
  • i like this idea.. it needs a revamp.. and i want my hat of sweet dreams in game again!!! i likes the nexus version!
  • I would like these for my new characters, especially the mounts. I had them on my older characters that are long gone now. :(

    It would be nice to see them again either in Federation shop or EMP shop.
