Qilue (f/sco) reached Master Lv.5, while collecting Ancient Runes in Errac. Training apprentices also raised Voltaire (Garcia), Alicia (f/Infantry), and Gloriana (f/Soldier) by a few levels. The family dismissed Dove (Rescue Knight) and recruited another Rescue Knight. Anastasia (Rescue Knight), meaning "resurrection" in Greek, was named after Anastasia of Sirmium, a Christian saint martyred during the Diocletianic Persecution in the second century.
The family completed 1 Uraeus, 10 Team Arena, and 7 Arsene Circus missions. Despite missing several Team Arena missions due to hiccups in Holy Water Chamber raids, the reward was quite good this week. The loot included Symbol of Scorpio, 3 Symbols of Aquarius, Aiming Gloves, Mystic Shoes, and Elite Piernoente Recipe.
While passing through Desolate Cliff to elsewhere, Lara (Brunie) ran into the Bell Boy of Mein. Lara (Brunie) quickly shot it down, and stole its Silver Hammer. After 115 weeks in the New World, this was the first time the family actually encountered it. The previous hunt attempts, a long time ago, all ended in failure as the family just couldn't find it.
The family crafted Dragon Heart and traded it for Golden Guard (aka Phantom Guard). After the enchantment disaster in Week 111, the family apprehensively took the shield to the Enchantment Merchant. After 102 Lv.100 Enchantment Chips and 100 Enchant Boosters, the shield was enchanted with DEF Rating +2. That wasn't too bad, considering that the previous owner said it was cursed.
Thelandira (f/mus) bought another 25 Socket Fluxes from the market to open her armor's 3rd socket... and failed again. Socketing is just stupidly expensive. A few seconds of click, fail, click, fail, click, fail... and a few hundred million vis went poof!
Nothing much happened during Colony War this week. A couple of Koroshiya clan members were poking at some Phalanx's colonies for fun, and that was about it.
The family experienced 2 disconnections this week. One of them froze the family as they attempted to enter Errac Tierra Dias. After restarting the client, Tierra Dias was still inaccessible, thereby locking the family out until maintenance. This is why having only one channel for some maps is totally stupid. Meanwhile, G1 Forums were having IPS Driver Error intermittently. And weekly maintenance popped up early this week, with only a 30-minutes advanced notice in-game.
