GM Event: Nov 29th

Yesterday's event was somehow expected due to same set up though am expecting development inside the GM's Lair. RCM Hrin and GM Heaven appeared at the City of Auch channel 1 around 15:30 with a notice to give hint that they will be having an event today.

(RCM Hrin with GM Heaven gathering the pioneers through notice)

(The gathering of pioneers at City of Auch channel 1)

After 10-15 mins, they summon the event gate, but before hand the pioneers were told that if there are known bugs, feedback are entertained for the improvement of the said event zone.

(Red error boxes, void room, and the talking sheep)

The red error boxes are still there along with the huge void room but as usual the method of killing bosses like Lava leaf, Novia, etc. are still the same. Then after killing some event boss, wisps will appear so the pioneers will get loot from it.

(The event ticket, your key for rewards after events)

(The legendary huge treasure box that can give prizes after events)

At the end of the event GM Heaven informed the pioneers that in their miscellaneous tab there is an event ticket wherein you could exchange for rewards. And by having one you are permitted to click huge treasure chest and get your reward. Base on what I got along with others, three pieces of level 100 enhancement chip was given to each ticket surrendered to the huge treasure chest. Unfortunately there are some pioneers who abuse it. How? My friend told me you just reconnect back to Auch then enter the Event Zone portal. So if you could do it many times, you can be rewarded more than the reward of three level 100 chips.

Personally GM Heaven was nice this time because he bothers to say good-bye before he left the event. Thanks also to RCM Hrin by showing up at the event. But I hope next time, GM's should chat ban those irresponsible and arrogant pioneers who insults and use profanity inside the event.

I know the pioneers are looking forward of seeing improve events in the future. So pioneers again I'll keep you posted.

Buzz PH Community

To all Filipino pioneers of the new found world, there will be an upcoming gathering on December 1st of this year. I would like to share this information to those Filipino pioneers who read my blog somehow you might get hypnotized and visit us at the event.

For more information about the said event, you can refer to this official news article or you may send whispers to Blacksword and Artaxerxes in-game. And if you can't find them in-game or through the forum site, you can buzz them on their respective messenger ID; (Blacksword) and (Artaxerxes).

Enjoy the gathering pioneers!

How was everything?

(Takhisis Faction 1 year anniversary as a social faction)

Looking back at May 6, 2008 article entry from my previous faction blog site I began to miss the good old days. The days that we are plainly happy that if we got a colony, its a big accomplishment to us as a faction. But now, i saw my fellow Filipino pioneers who are players and friends in real life fell like dried leaves. By the beard of Lyndon! They are quitting progressively in numbers!

Now these are the things I've realized:
1. As a Filipino player of Granado Espada, it's really hard to compete economic-wise. Why? G-Points at Singapore were sold cheaper and Filipino players must spend twice the price on everything. In short Singapore players have full access on everything. So its really considered are Singapore server and not quoted as Southeast Asia server anymore. So personally I accept that fact.

2. The AR/DR system gives great gap on everything. In short, again spend more so you will augment your equipments along with your characters to keep up.

3. I am happier with a faction that has good people inside rather than being put into the pedastal as a faction but the consequences were worst. And besides inside a big faction is just killing the curiousity of having seeing and getting better equipments but in the end all of these will be good as digital dust.

There will be sudden turn in my personal gaming, I rather to choose to have my gaming life back. I'll keep you posted pioneers.

Name the 3rd Server

After scanning through the suggestive names from our fellow pioneers, I found out that most of them just drop names for them to be luckily pick. And I see the mere fact that aligning a suggestive server name can be applaud if it reflects on its real name as defined by history and the contest is getting "you just post without researching".

When you say baroque, it is not a word that only define a time frame but it gives highlight about the past that gives shape to beauty; architecture, classicism, painting, etc. that contributes history. Am not giving lecture here pioneers but suggesting a good name for a third server and is PK should have a nicer name.

All I can hope is a sincere poster will win this particular contest of naming the 3rd server coming this December. Eventually if the winner comes from a poster who just list down names, I might strongly say that poster does not care to research and I pity those who gives information about their suggestive server name entry.

To all the pioneers good luck on this contest, hope the well deserve win.

The colonies were tightly defended and some where lost due to some surprise attacks from faction who just show up.

GM Event: Pet Day

Pet on the block!
Novia summoned and ready to rumble

Today I made it through the Pet Day event, the GM was found at Jezebel Glen. Then after a while the GM summon us to event room. There we fought Novia, Vergo, (2x) Lava Leaf, and (2x) Griffon. Every time they die, wisps will appear and there you get loots. Unfortunately, the most decent loot was an Elite 84 Robe with 3DR option. And the sad part was the GM left without saying even a simple good bye. Anyway the idea for this kind of event was nice and further improvement will be expected by the pioneers of the new found world. So again, I'll keep you posted.

Adelina's Booty new loots!


Yup you are looking at one of the Elite 92 armors of the new found world. And you have the chance to grab their recipes and craft it. The new update was stated at the official Granado Espada forums and the news was announced at the Granado Espada site. So this are the official loot table for the improved Adelina's Booty Search.

Rare Items
Growth Stone
Moon Stone
Sun Stone
Liquefied Gas
Old Chess Piece
Snail Skin
Seeds of Rafflesia
Siren's Scale
Archangel's Heart
Recipe - Elite Bone Frame Armor
Recipe - Elite Rescue Suit
Recipe - Elite Metallic Suit
Recipe - Elite Dragon Coat
Recipe - Elite Pendera Jacket
Recipe - Elite La Ventisca

Common Items
Ring Box
Yellow Ore
Red Ore
Blue Ore
Green Ore
Amethyst Piece

Well I do hope that the crap elite 52 armors, weapons, watermelon skins, etc will be removed on the list because it is pure annoyance while doing searches. And in addition this a good move for IAH/IMC because it can further decrease hording players within servers and giving progressive solution to the inflating market of Granado Espada SEA. Enjoy searching pioneers!

Woot~ Buy G-Points using E-Points

Check out the list below for the corresponding G-Point equivalent per EP card denomination:

20 EP = 230 GP + 1 ABS

50 EP = 750 GP + 3 ABS

100 EP = 1800 GP + 5 ABS

200 EP = 3600 GP + 8 ABS

300 EP = 5800 GP + 10 ABS

1000 EP = 23800 GP + 35 ABS

Sounds good right? Well I hope it'll be sooner because G-Points here in the Philippines are really hard to find. You may consider it rare! But I hope that we have the 70k GP card because its really good to have one. Most of our Filipino pioneers buy 70k GP through their friends from Singapore using money transfer. So I guess the availability of 70k GP in our domain will ease the pain of our fellow Filipino pioneers. I'll keep you posted pioneer!

Claire Quest: Prepare for Lolita Justice!


This is the information gathered and confirmed about Claire's Quest and am already half-way to finish it.

How to trigger the Quest:
Meet the NPC Claire at the City of Auch with Claude Baudez as your leader in squad. Do take note that there is no specific level of what Claude Baudez you bring.

Quest Proper:
* After talking with Claire for the quest trigger, remove Claude Baudez in your team.
* Claire will give you a letter to be send for Claude, look for him at Cite Reboldoeux.
* Claude will give back a letter addressed to Claire, look for her again.
* The quest will describe Claude's test for Claire, so you will now move to Jose Cortazar at the Port of Coimbra.
* When you found Jose Cortazar, he will ask for some avocado sandwich which are sold at Lisa also at the Port of Coimbra.
* After you hand over the avocado sandwich, Jose will ask for 50,000 vis and 50 family reputation.
* Jose will now send you to an instance mission of eliminating 3 Escudo Pecher.
*After accomplishing this mission, you will now buy an Elemental Jewel that costs 10,000,000 vis that can be bought at item dealers in different towns.
* When you hand over to Claire the jewel and the quest item from Jose Cortazar, you are about to meet; Reboldoeux Investigating Team (H7 Cite Reboldoeux), Coimbra Emilia (J7 Port of Coimbra), and Enhancement Merchant Rio (H6 City of Auch). They will respectively give you; large age watch, headband, and rucksack quest items.
* Meet Claire again, and this time the quest will ask for a hunt.
* The quest will require 2 Unknown ores that can be found at Bona Vista River. You must kill some or more Elite Storm Cockatrice to get the quest drop Unknown ores.
* After acquiring 2 Unkown ores, move to Claude Baudez and this time he let Claire to join with you.
* Congratulations you have Claire on your family.

On my personal note, the quest was easy on lurking around the cities looking for NPC's. But the major problem was hunting the Elite Storm Cockatrice. Be reminded that if you could put your family to "Keep Mode" at Bona Vista River, use Musketeer type for fast kill and go to sleep if the Unknown ore is not lucky to slip on your quest counter. The quest above are now modified for sGE and previous changes was made from original kGE quests. Enjoy and more patience to you pioneers!
