I'm the most anal and pickiest MMO'er ever.

Honestly the only thing that bugs me about the game are the creepers Elin/Popori seem to attract and Mystic Thralls, I'm just weird about followers/pets.


If the only thing that bugs you about TERA is the creepers, then either you:

a) aren't nearly as anal and picky as you think
b) haven't been playing TERA for very long
Wow, those are some seriously over-bright armor and weapons. Like something you'd see in cheap He-Man knock offs from Taiwan.

"Two years worth of semen made a glopping noise as it flowed endlessly into Asuna"?


What are you talking about? That's immortal prose right there, truly.

I sympathize, in that I hate the precedent massively inflated prices for cosmetics items sets, but the community did itself no favors with this one. For the past few months, as time passed since their initial release, this has been the general tone of discussion about the maid outfits:

"I'm throwing money at the screen, but nothing is happening!!!"

"Elin is master race! Where is master race outfit!"

"Class balance? After maid outfit plox!"

"So Kawaii! Maid costume is most important thing!"

"I have 8 elin. Costumes for all!"

"OUR MONEY! TAKE ALL OF IT!!!"

"Forum Easter egg hunt? MOAR CODES! I CAN'T WAIT ANY MORE!!!!!"


In short, if the community doesn't want a F2P publisher to bend them over the table when it comes to buying cosmetic items, the community shouldn't spend months advertising how much lube it's been stockpiling.
Fraya has a face? Huh. Never noticed.

Kinda divided here. It sounds like a good idea, but why in the world would a male want to wear bunny ears???



... probably 75% of the elin in TERA are played by men, and you think it's strange someone might want bunny ears on a male character? This game is full tilt, lollicon sausage fest as far as the eye can see, and rabbit ears on a dude leaves you puzzled?

Hell, the reindeer antlers at Christmas were unisex, so why would it be so strange for a guy to rock stuff from somewhere else in the animal kingdom?

It's not like this thread is agitating for fishnet thigh-highs and pasties for male characters.*




*Incidentally, if you're a person who wants fishnet thigh-highs and pasties for your male characters, then more power to you. Rock your happy place with my thumbs up approval.




RNG bags are a way to soak a customer base for as much money as possible. From a customer standpoint, there are no positives, because even those rare folks who luck into getting exactly what they want the first time will sooner or later (usually sooner) discover why the house always wins.

There is no way to change them to "better reflect a fair purchase," because doing so would require entirely removing the random element.

This newest excursion into RNG bag garbage is especially bad for four reasons:

1) It's an RNG bag
2) It's an RNG bag with three separate items making up the whole
3) The price is increased, and will set the new tone.
4) There's no way to simply buy the item

Here's a bonus reason: THEY'RE DOING ALL THESE THINGS WITH ITEMS FEW HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR. Can you imagine what it's going to be like when maid Lolipocalypse rolls around next month?

There is nothing here of benefit for TERA players. All business looks for profit, and it's no sin to do so, but not all business operates on a policy of blatant cash grabs. The only lesson EME learned with the gym bag debacle was to be more diligent about pretending the "bonus" [filtered] no one dares the RNG gauntlet for was the reason the bags exist.

No one buys RNG boxes for an instance reset, or a semi-enigmatic scroll, or two extensive alks... but you can be damn sure EME will always list those items first, so they can publicly pretend folks dropping 500$ dollars on a half-[filtered] digital lottery are getting value for their dollar.

I don't get it, like they doesn't want money or something?
They know they can get tons of money by releasing maid/wep skin, instead they give us crappy Rng box skin that look even worse that's probably no one wanna buy.
Logic outta the window on this one for me.


Longer they make you wait the more you will want them. More you want them the higher price they can put on them. All tricks to make you spend more money than you normally would.


Yup. Here's Halrath, about 20ish minutes ago in another thread:

I asked about this. Someone, who shall remain nameless, but I can tell you their name sounds like roxxor, admitted under intense interrogation that the maid outfits will fly into the Dream in the first or second week of April. Something about April showers bring maid outfits...

Anyway, that's the latest.

These may be the stupidest [filtered] cash shop items I've ever seen. I guess it's commendable in its absolute commitment to pathetic.
