Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been working to make a decision on the common enigmatic scrolls, masterwork alkahests, and spellbinds. The reason we have been undecided is that these items have been removed from the specialty shops for our build of TERA, with the exception of common enigmatic scrolls. Bluehole has left it up to each territory’s publisher to either sell these items, provide them through events, or other in-game means.

En Masse has decided to make these items available to you through in-game means. We feel that removing these items from our gold merchants and only moving them into our store would create an unfair obstacle for players. We want you guys to spend money on what you want to spend money on, not on what you have to spend money on. Here is a breakdown on the three items in question:

- Common Enigmatic Scrolls will remain in the current vendors as it is today.
- Spellbind and Masterwork Alkahest will be removed from the specialty shops and instead added to the world through other means:

* Max level dungeons.
* Valkyon’s Response boxes
* Victor’s Spoils boxes
* Locked Strongboxes, with free keys to drop via events and promotions
* In-game events, even if this means running some old events to get these items in the arms of players.

- We will be monitoring the supply and demand of these items, and add more in-game ways to obtain them if necessary.

The goal of this is to make these items readily available in the game so purchase via EMP is not mandatory. These will be in our shop for convenience for players with less time than gold. The price, quantities, and type of distribution are yet to be determined. These will not be for sale at the launch of TERA: Rising.

Your feedback on this was much appreciated. This is going to be an ongoing process where we keep listening and adjusting our offerings.

HA! I KNEW IT.

Welcome to the P2W future of Tera people, we knew this would happen, there were hundereds of people on the forums against it. This is just proof that BHS controls the game, EME can't control it. No fault of theirs of course, but still dissapointing.

P2Win.

Common enigmatic scrolls were left in the vendor, showing you were able to do so. Alkahest was not.

Alkahest is now RNG or $$.

At least the common enig scrolls are still sold in vendors, enig gear would be near useless without them. Where are those people that kept saying us-tera was a unique snowflake that wasn't affected by another region's changes?

Alright, based on what is known NOW it sounds fair enough. Remains available via in-game means and still available in the shop. Nothing entirely removed from the game. Apocalypse averted for a few more days.

You know you did the one thing that 99% of the community asked you NOT to do...VERY DISAPPOINTED!

This was one of the worst decisions you have EVER made! Put them back in the specialty shops!

You say that like you expected something different.

@Annoucneemnt

Ok, so MW Alkahest and Spellbind are out of the door on the Vanarch Store, fine. Added to end game dungeons as drops from the last bosses or from all bosses? in what quantity?

Will Spellbind mechanics change to not need 500+ to lock my gloves?

Will Spellbind and MW Alkahest be available day 1 on the cash shop?

I'm waiting for you to now post a different way to monetize TERA without selling gear, since you are so against this one, be constructive not destructive.
