What's been happening?

It's the last day of 2012 and our time in Bristia is finally at a end.  It's been a fun few years with various ups and downs.  We've met some interesting people, missed some of them, and will miss others.  We haven't been online to play during this last week of the year right after we wrote the last entry.  The reason is entirely due to events in reality.

In particular, the following happened:
We got married on Christmas Eve!
A fellow MMO game player and I married and went on a few trips to a seaside casino resort city and to our nation's capitol.  One of the readers of this log (the one who has been leaving comments) will know my spouse as a fellow guild member in DN.

Hope to see you all on the Castilla server!

White Santa Costume for Scout

Today, we managed to obtain the White Santa costume (and accompanying hat) for the Scout.  Getting those Raiden boxes were frustrating as we received an Alphabet Box from them, which lead to the letter V and then an Angler Spinelle.  Therefore, we'll save the boxes for a few days.
Those are thick gloves

White Santa Elementalist

From the current Christmas event, we managed to obtain a White Santa costume (and accompanying hat) for our elementalist.
Some features were not as apparent in the front view.

Last Christmas Event for our servers

It's you guys again!
The alphabet ended recently and we exchanged all our letters for boxes and symbols.  A new and probably final event started today and it is the Christmas event.  With less than 2 weeks to go before the end of the current world, we wonder if it is enough time for us to get anything good.
This place is emptier than last year.
Level 1 thieves
When speaking with the Santa character, we were sent to a single room instance full of level 1 thieves.  They dropped many potions and 2 Christmas Coins for us.  Looking at the prices of the Gift Boxes (20, 30, and 40), we despaired on collecting enough coins as the instance seems to be limited to once per day.  However, we soon discovered that those coins drop from regular targets.
