Resigned from clan

This Saturday, we resigned from the clan that we were apart of for more than half a year. Specifically, we resigned right after we finished with the overturned boxes at Joaquin. It was an orderly exit as the head of the clan knew about it and another clan member had resigned hours earlier. The head stated that she would be the last to go or at least one of the last once things are organized. Now that we are clanless, the world seems like a lonelier place.

Screaming of Spirits

This weekend, we finally completed the Screaming of Spirits portion of the quest line. This meant waiting till 4PM EST in front of one of the overturned boxes for the larger than usual creature to jump out. There were other families there hunting for them but fortunately, we only needed to kill 1 for the quest item. After this quest, there was an exchange of letters between cities and we eventually ended up at Bahamar.

At Bahamar, we had to hunt for 6 Pioneering Seals level 9. Unfortunately, only Maria (our fighter) was able to survive in the swamp but she was successfully in single handedly defeating hundreds of spiders to obtain the 6 seals. It's amazing how well the Defender stance works.

The next part of the quest is to defeat the Swamp Angler but from our research, it will be difficult even with a squad. I guess that'll stay on hold for awhile.

From the weekend

The only thing of interest this weekend was the brief fight between DalValtiez of SwordoftheDragon and Kilroy of TheOne at the Old Port of Coimbra during the Faction War on Saturday night. There was a huge skeleton raid boss involved and the two was running in circles around the colony.

Wizard costume details

I just love how detailed these costumes are. For this particular costume, that tattoo on her chest is reflective yet her skin isn't. This means that the intricate lines of the tattoo design shimmers along with the ruffles of her dress.

Costume restoral for pre 2.4 characters

Today, I noticed that the requested 5 costumes appeared in our inventory. These were costumes in compensation for switching the static costumes to the current system of costumes for characters created before version 2.4. As I had one of each type, I requested 5 costumes. It's so nice for the company to do this.
Metallic Suit for the fighter. I know of no way to currently get this costume from within the game.
Some red costume for the musketeer. I've seen a few characters with this rare costume so it must be available somehow. The other option I was considering was a blue version which could be achieved by wearing an elite striform armor.
Rescue Suit for the scout. The same look as be achieved by wearing the Rescue Suit armor, which is actually quite common. There were no other interesting Scout costumes to choose from as I already have her green skimpy one as a veteran costume and the orange one as an armor.
I've seen a few low level characters with this costume but do not know how to obtain it. There were many other interesting costumes for the elementalist that were unavailable in-game but I thought their appearance were too similar to the other existing costumes.
Another rare costume that I've seen only only 1 other family.

Last post?

After barely failing to get any characters to Veteran (including Vincent) during the month and a half long summer events and cringing at the thought and sound of being in Topolo, Gigante Island (beach and Fire Isle), and the Joaquin Prison Laboratory (highest level Forgotten Area), I am putting this game on hold indefinitely. Hopefully it will not be permanent as I still have quite a few premium items to use up such Ancient Area passes, Forgotten Area passes, Veteran scrolls, and gold. That the clan channel was extremely quiet during the last few weeks and that there were no rookies to power level does not help things. Fortunately, I don't think anyone in the clan will notice that I am gone as those that would have gone already.

For now, I think I'll try Cabal Online and perhaps get back in Albatross18 again.
