The new costume-based system that will be replacing the existing template-based system seems like an inferior option.

-Less armor models available (no Agnitor/Abyss/Regent/Noctenium/Kelsaik sets)
-Less base colours available (only one per model versus multitude available in template drops)
-Cannot mix or match Body / Arm / Leg models
-No weapon modelling whatsoever
-More grindy and time consuming method to obtain models

The only positive point is that there is no need to continuously template equipment as you upgrade or swap them out since the costume slot is used.

We get 1 step forward for 5 steps back. Not worth it.


From what I know about the KTERA remodeling changes, some of the existing equipment -still- has the 'eligible as template' property. The only difference with the introduction of the reaper patch is the disappearance of the Remodeling NPCs (and the remodel feature they possess). The templating system is being hidden.


If we keep the remodeling NPCs in EME's version of TERA, will we be able to have the best of both worlds?

Does EME have any control to keep the remodeling NPCs? Seeing as how they are able to modify NPCs to suite our version (Tikat, seasonal event NPCs, and changes like a Cleric in Velika Outskirts), I think they can make it happen.

Please make it happen. Don't let the current remodeling system be removed. We will lose out on the subsequent loss of the character customization that adds a little more to this game.


We'll sacrifice many, many bunnies if necessary as offering to convince you guys.

The silver template itself is actually one of the ones that can be converted into a costume (in Ktera anyway), so you specifically will be okay by the change.

I'm going to be depressed if this removal makes it through, honestly. And extremely disappointed with EME if they allow it.

I have to agree. I do not want the remodelling NPCs to be removed at all. I dislike the idea of grinding for something just to make my character look a little more unique. I'd rather pay in gold, personally, like I've done ever since I started playing. I hope EME listen to the views of the players before they decide to take a drastic change in the coming update. Assuming it was ever planned to happen in the first place.

I'm not sure that they have a choice unless they're going to go back to a customized build. From what was said when they lowered the bills pricing for Templates, it seemed like a foregone conclusion.

I've always suspected that the timing of this change in KTera had something to do with templates not working properly for the Reaper class, although it's clear they had intended a switch to the costume model for a while.

Do you know how patches work? EME gets them in a bundle with or without content they want (they can try to halt the addition/removal for some things) and they translate it, test it, then release it. They've already gotten the patch a long while ago and the patch will be implemented as it stands when May hits. So you're little too late in asking this, I don't know if it'll be removed once it does but it's very likely since it happened in all other regions too.

Sadly, I believe the cards are in BHS in favor. There are many ways BHS push EME to comply, especially since BHS has control over new game content.

You can appeal to our KTERA brothers/sisters for them to push BHS to re-implement the modeling system. Or at least alter it to allow players to create customized costume sets with gear pieces.

I still think this is the main enhancement that would solve most of the complaints I've seen. It seems to me that costumes are actually much more flexible a solution, except for this side-effect. If they could somehow address this point, I think it'd have the benefit of the remodelling system without having to worry about redoing it all again every time your gear changes.
