you probably have a rename scroll in your game mail. when the servers merged back in november, higher level actives got priority over lower level dorment players - it's just tough luck, sorry. i even lost a name i took in prelaunch because i only got it to level 13, while someone on another server months later took that same name to 60. the best way to find out if a name is still taken is to use character creation and try each name you want on a new level 0, then delete that character and the name will be released for use within a minute, and you can then get it through your rename scroll on the higher level avatar you wanted it for. i'm not sure how the rename scroll resets if the names you try are already taken, but i guess you could try it that way too - i just don't like to risk it as i like trying a lot of different names to see which are still free, then pick amoung them. if you use the rename scroll, the moment you try a name that's free you are now stuck with it.

if it's the event chain i'm thinking of, its like 3-5 events in a row, that rapid cycle, and ends with big boss and chest... great chain for leveling and making gold

yeah didn't realize you were already 37, our best bet at this point for leveling together would be WvW... but it's definitely slower than normal PvE

i'll try to catch up with crafting

once you hit 68-69 you can go to the ORR zones, and with rapid cycling events you can go 68-80 in like one session

Got my account up and running again. Used to play on Basilisks Crag, made it to 60 on priest and warrior is 52ish, I quit before the battlegrounds and queen of argile or whatever patch, so I'm interested in trying that stuff out. I guess I'm on whatever the pvp server is now, and luckily I kept my old names after the rename.

F2P starts Feb'5th in EU (confirmed), and in US (not confirmed).
a 3v3 pvP BG, and at least one new instance dungeon will be added.
Spellbind(green powder) and MW Alkahest(pink powder)
may be removed from NPC and will only come from RNG drops.
this is also unconfirmed but very likely. i would not recommend
stocking up on powder beyond your own near future needs, as it's
likely both powder will drop increase enough for the price to stabilize.

if you have over 2,000g on your character, and wish to add
a Month sub time for Elite status, you can open a support ticket,
ask for a Month to be added and 2,000g in payment to be deducted.
this is being done manually in place of (temporarially removed) chronoscrolls.

confirmation and more details regarding Feb 5th F2P US:

»tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/tera···bruary-5

notice the new pvE and pvP servers being added
new players who never paid for this game will be
discoraged from joining old founder/elite servers as
new free players will be subject to longer wait ques
on old servers... this would seem a logical approach,
and keep established servers from being overwhelmed
with total tera game newbies and free gaming trolls.

NOTICE: Servers will be down for over 24 hours next week!

JUST CONFIRMED: MW Alkahest (pink +10-12 powder) will be removed from NPC and drop in stacks by RNG from Bosses and events. stacks will not be distributed to all party members, rather whoever RNG that drop gets it all. there is still no decision made on the fate of Spellbind (green modifyer locking powder), or intricate identification scrolls (used to change modifiers on already masterworked items).

F2P Official US Patch Notes are Out:
»tera.enmasse.com/news/patch-note···h-190402

I'm NOT happy with NT Nexus and Powder sale changes,
but the rest of it seems like a step in the right direction.

the new system for changing your glyphs on the fly is awesome.
»synergyktera.wordpress.com/2012/···-system/

The timing of the enchanting luck change is great for me, as
i have my fodder and powder save up to +12 my regent weapon.

I hate to say it, but many of these changes were LONG overdue.
players have been complaining since game launch on some of them.

I should be 161 by next weekend... then i'll have to grind SG
100-200 times - till i get my own 6% neck... that will be lovely

UPDATE - the above patch notes were originally incomplete,
»tera.enmasse.com/news/patch-note···ditional
so this f2p patch includes most of the skill changes ktera got in Nov
as mystic i'm glad since these improve my self heal, crowd control and Aura range
all long overdue mystic issues. now if they only made our pets more useful...

all servers (game forum account support) will be unavailable for 24 hours
from 7 a.m. PST on Monday February 4
to 7 a.m. PST on Tuesday February 5.

»tera-forums.enmasse.com/forums/s···13-68416

during the shutdown you can follow any new developments here;

»twitter.com/teraonline
»www.facebook.com/TERAonline
»www.reddit.com/r/TeraOnline/

reason for the long downtown is to restructure the databases
to accommodate the 3 bank capacity type of player accounts,
and to get online a new pvP and new pvE server.

Here is a very useful video outlining all the pvP skill rebalancing;

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=64kFbKhDC38


Future Update Unofficial Schedual;
early March - elin maid outfit, new nexus mechanics
late April - Castle raiding and 3 Guild Alliance building.

ingame cash shop exchange rate is around 110g = $1usd

the Feb'5 game patch is 1.14gb in size, and live since 2am PST.
the latest intel suggests servers will be up at 7am PST, but the
new in game cash store will not be working for a few days.

Confirmed: this splash screen fix was not affected by the patch;
»www.reddit.com/r/TeraOnline/comm···_screen/

here is my +12 all 162 Mystic - finally ready for anything

since the game is free to play, subs are now optional for maintaining Elite status only, so naturally they are cancelling all recurring subscriptions unless you specify you wish to continue it.

players are so funny... someone bought ALL the gold t14 weapon fodder before the update, and is trying to sell it back into the market at double it's old price - good luck with that anyone returning to game may want to give the market a few days for the economy to settle down - things could get temporarily weird with this new normal.

FYI: i got my weapon from +6 to +12 with only 40 gold fodder, which by prepatch standards is VERY lucky...

returning 60's should visit Allemantheia - there's a new set of quests waiting for you there.

I sincerely wish this game went F2P from the start. I would have never left.

Now that I have left, I am brainwashed by GW2 and may not be able to come back.

I will give it a shot. But no guarantees. Path of Exile and GW2 have both earned "must play" status for me. Earning my game time will be difficult... but I will give Tera a go around again at least for a bit and see what happens!

ESO take note... this will be your future if you intially go P2P.

new ingame cash shop is finally working and offers
account service items like race and name change.
items are tradeable with players using game gold.
while many cash shop items make play more efficient,
no item makes any character stronger over another.

the only downside i see to the cash shop is it adds
a lot of trade spam, since players are reluctant to
buy and broker these items till they get buy offers.
i would not pay more than 1g per EMP for items already
in game, or 1.5g per EMP for unique to cash shop stuff.

double drop weekend starts at Noon today PST.
it only doubles instance dungeon boss drops.
post update egg thief mobs have been removed.
remember, Nexus times are 12pm and 7pm PST
