While training others, Lolita (Claire) and Soteira (Helena) reached Expert Lv.8 and Lv.6 respectively. Voltaire (Garcia), Hermes (Ramiro), Ahab (Alejandro), Magrathea (Angie), and Cacofonix (Rio) also gained a few levels. After collecting Ancient Runes in Errac fields, Athena (f/fig) was finally promoted to become the family's 7th Master!

The family completed 2 Uraeus, 14 Team Arena, and 7 Arsene Circus missions, looting 2 Symbols of Pisces, Symbol of Sagittarius, Symbol of Cancer, Symbol of Leo, Symbol of Aries, Le Noir (wiz) Recipe, Le Noir (sco) Recipe, and 2 Assassin Gloves. This completed the 3rd set of symbols. Adorabelle (f/ele) also won Stormbringer (dagger) and Boreas (sabre) from Lightning Gate.

The family experienced 7 disconnections this week, one of which occurred when I tried to use a /pingtest command, and another inside Silent Maze.

According to GE-KR v6.5.5 Patch Notes for Silver (Test) Server, five characters will receive new personal skills. The skills for Garcia and Lisa have dual functions, similar to Raven's personal skill. Screenshots below are taken from GE-KR Screen Board posts - 리사/솔져/브루니 and 가르시아, 힘까 스킬.

GE Korea has released a new [GM Tip] article regarding revised Joaquin Barrier (Siege) mission. See [GM Tip] 리뉴얼 된 자캥 방벽 공성전 미션. See also [v3.2 Feature] Daily Event Missions for a summary of current daily missions. Currently, you can get Symbol of Capricorn from this mission. See Cabra Reports 22/11/2010.

The mission will be available once per day at newly added NPC in Reboldeaux Queen's Gate at any time, instead of being held at 2pm every day. Up to 5 families may join a mission. There will be 4 colonies that must be destroyed.

http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/2901/newsiege2.jpg

After the colonies are destroyed, 10 crystals will spawn around the map. Destroy them in 1 minute to spawn the mission's main boss, Gullfaxi. If the crystals are not destroyed in 1 minute, the colonies will re-spawn and you basically have to start afresh.

Kill Gullfaxi and it will drop a treasure chest. Click on it to turn roulette for all participating families. Press ESC key to view a list of other events you can do.

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.

Helius is the Latin name of the sun, Helios, in Greek mythology. As the sun god, Helios drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day. His son, Phaëton, attempted to drive chariot and lost control, setting the earth on fire and was then killed by Zeus with a thunderbolt. Helios also featured in The Odyssey, wherein a tale mentioned him telling Hephaestus of the secret affair of Aphrodite and Ares.

While farming Ancient Runes, Adorabelle (f/ele) reached Master Lv.4. As the trainers for other pioneers, Selvaria (Selva) and Lara (Brunie) reached Veteran Lv.3. Voltaire (Garcia), Magrathea (Angie), Cacofonix (Rio), Alicia (f/Infantry), Gloriana (f/Soldier), and Geryon (Trooper) also gained a few levels.

Soteira (Helena) looted Symbol of Scorpio, Symbol of Pisces, Symbol of Aries, Symbol of Virgo, Symbol of Cancer, Le Noir (sco) Recipe, and 4 gem recipes from 12 Team Arena missions. Athena (f/fig) also acquired Symbol of Sagittarius from King of Greed. Romina completed 6 solo Arsene Circus raids, and looted Chevalier Greaves and Assassin Gloves. Thelandira (f/mus) looted Elite Black Dragon Recipe from Uraeus mission, and also bought 20 Socket Fluxes to open the 2nd socket on her Elite Le Noir.

Adorabelle (f/ele) won The Wasp (rapier) from Lightning Gate, and then traded Einaptor Sword (sword) for The Diamond Dragon (rifle) with a clan mate. The Rough Stones collected this week yielded 3 HQ Bloodstones and other jewels.

The family experienced 5 disconnections this week. In addition, there were connectivity problems with the patch server and X-Trap update server for a day. Then, a lot of maps became inaccessible with "Server Closed" notice, including Reboldeaux and Coimbra on both channels. Those families with start points in either town basically cannot get into the game, if their previous locations cannot be resumed. This also hindered raids and events, like Arsene Circus (Scarlet Underground) and Faction Fight (Queen's Gate). All these problems were presumably due to Infrastructure Upgrades.

Emergency server restart managed to fix the maps in time for Colony War. It would be funny if no war happened because nobody can get into the colonies to attack. Last weekend, Phalanx clan called off the readied attack on Desolate Cliff colony as a result of a last-minute agreement. Then, there were some drama and weekday war as the terms of the agreement were not being kept (or something along those lines). Therefore, this weekend, Phalanx clan took Desolate Cliff colony, and had to fend off assaults on random colonies by Core clan for an hour after that. See Orpesia Colony War Status: Nov 13, 2010.
