Eva Sharon & Grandies

From the latest event, we manage to obtain both Eva Sharon and Grandies.  Grandies is one of the tallest people we have in our barracks, almost as tall as Nar.  During the accumulation of points, we managed to train Beatrice and Veronif to expert level and obtained their export stances.

Tempest stance

Beatrice certainly changed her appearance when she grew up!
The other day, we managed to get our Beatrice to expert level and also unintentionally got our Lorch to expert level 10.  Hence, we went on a short excursion to obtain Beatrice's Tempest stance book.
We were slightly worried that we would have to enter Lightning Gate to get it.
But fortunately, we only needed to reach the doorway of Lightning Gate.  The Tempest stance is taking a long time to train up though so we'll focus on other characters for now.

Cadet Adriana

We haven't been playing at all recently but we have managed to accumulate enough points from the recent event in order to obtain Cadet Adriana.  Perhaps someday, we'll take her out for a spin.

Sorang

Yesterday, we manage to accumulate enough points to exchange for Sorang's card.  She's a tiny little character but starts out at level 100.  We do wonder what her Book of Flow stance is.

Family updates

It's been awhile since the last entry and that is because we've been busy in reality.  We saw that the game undergone at least one major update during that time with new characters and even a new town somewhere. We still don't have time to actively play but at least we can stay logged in to accumulate points for the latest event.

So what have we been doing in real life (translated using in-game terms to keep the reader guessing)?

  1. Shortly after the last entry, we went on our honeymoon at a tropical island paradise.  We actually visited 2 islands with the 1st reminding us of Gigante Island and the 2nd reminding us of the Isle of Fire due to the volcano.  The week we spent at this place was excellent as expected and we saw quite a few pretty sights.
  2. After the honeymoon, we came home for a few days to repack and get ready for a long business trip. We actually logged for a few minutes to signal that we haven't given up on the game.
  3. The first part of the trip had us visiting our nation's capital.  We spent a week working in the deep underground of a labyrinth.  If not for the daily escort, we would have gotten lost as there is no clear path between one point to another.  It reminds of me a dungeon since we would enter on the first floor past the multiple gate keepers, head up to the second floor, go through many corridors and turns, before going down a few levels to our destination.  Along the way were many treasures of various sorts and I was tempted to get a few shiny coins or maybe a dagger.
  4. The second part of the trip had us visiting a something akin to Castilla Base Camp.  There, we would watch over the people stationed there as they performed as we directed.  This took a few week and we only came back mid last week.

Ralph

Today, we managed to obtain Ralph from the Playtime event.  We'll most likely continue with the event as the experience cards and the training cards are still good to get.

Rascel

Tonight, we managed to collect enough points from the Playtime event to obtain Rascel.  He appears to be a sabre and dagger user with his expert stance being a combination of both.  A friend helped us level him (along with Jack and Panfilo) to Veteran.

Daria

 After recruiting Natalie, recruiting Daria was pretty straightforward.  Daria wanted 10 Wheels of Time and as we haven't progressed far enough to enter the clock tower without Elemental Jewels, we simply brought the wheels off the market for 2.5 million each.

Natalie

 Several nights ago, we started on Natalie's recruitment quest.  We were a bit more than one third through collecting the Wolf Meat / Beet / Cabbage when we got tired of farming Katovic and decided to just purchase the ingredients instead.
Think you meant honey rather than money.

We're all pretty annoyed at collecting ingredients.

We heard that Natalie is pretty good at the Flintlock stance so we may be looking forward to that in the future.

Veronif

Today, we managed to recruit Veronif with the help of 2 companions.  We brought the Black Magic Stones from the market and spent soem time completing the 3 Bounty Hunter Missions.  By ourselves, we would have had great trouble with them, especially the one involving the Ice Tower.  As for the Wheel of Time pieces, a friend had some spares.

We're pleasantly surprised by the drops from the roulette of the Bounty Hunter missions.  Among other things, we received a few steel elite level 92 weapons and we think the 2 LeNoir (Scout) armors also came from there.

Currently, we were running through the Torsche Mansion, completing tasks for Marie.  The Annex of that place has changed since the last time we visited.  It is no longer a Forgotten Area and the robots there are different (no longer just another shade).  There are also much harder too even though they seem to be only level 105.

Funny faces of Marie Dupelecy

 We visited the Torsche Mansion today and found a new maid in the Laboratory.

At first, she seemed nice but under that pretty face lies a violent personality.

Continuing Beatrice's quest

We continued with Beatrice's quest today.  After a few short scenes, she joined our family.
It's almost like blackmail.
We also took Andre to Viron and had a chat with a weird looking character named Vincent.  Unlike the musician Vincent of Auch, this one was really creepy.
Could we say no?
We tried both Beatrice and Vincent in combat.  Beatrice only had 2 stances and her pre-Veteran stance (Lightning Possession) was quickly mastered.  Unfortunately, Vincent doesn't seem to be able to automatically heal even though he has the medic stance.

Starting Beatrice's quests

Last night, we spoke with M'Boma and started on a quest involving his sister, Beatrice.
This might be the first mission for us to be sensed.
She's affectionate towards her younger brother.
After the scene, Beatrice sent us to retrieve 2 Time Pieces from the Time Paradox device.  Fortunately, at that moment, we saw Brimestone advertising on world chat about it and joined their 2 squads.
Time Piece: Nephtys
Time Piece: Cortes
We used about 6 Soul Crystals through the entire 2 missions.  It wasn't because we managed to survive well but mostly because was were unable to activate it due to all the activity going on.

Stepping outside

Tonight, we logged in and actually played for awhile.  Everything was similar but yet foreign that it's disconcerting.  For example, our family members now spoke a different language except when they were using skills.  Gone were the familiar voices and names.

We attended a mission of Joaquin Siege, Rhapsody of Dead Man, Room of the Dead, and something with Greed in it.  In the Rhapsody of Dead Man, one of our squad members received Montaro's Rings from the roulette.

It'll take awhile for us to adjust to this new environment.

The journey continues...

Our first photo in the new server Castilla
The Bristia is gone and we have transitioned to the Castilla server of T3Fun.  The transfer process was pretty smooth and we were able to log in tonight.  We added our first friend from the old server as we saw him broadcasting.  We didn't have time to step away from Leonardo though as it was getting late.  Chatting with Leonardo, we received a few premium items.  Checking through our inventory, we found a few costumes that we didn't know that we had before, such as a Christmas weapons costume and 3 Christmas rocket back costumes.

Hmm... just discovered that almost all equipment that has not been equipped by a character had their enchantments erased.  This includes almost everything in inventory (2 of my items managed to survive) and probably everything in the warehouse.
