Qilue (f/sco) reached Master Lv.6, while collecting Ancient Runes. The family decided to spend more time on Ambrosia (Emilia) to level her Darkness stance, so she used Symbol of Scorpio to learn Enhanced Tactics for inactive leveling.
The family completed 2 Uraeus, 11 Team Arena, and 7 Arsene Circus missions, looting Symbol of Aquarius, Symbol of Virgo, Symbol of Cancer, Symbol of Leo, Le Noir (ele) Recipe, Elite Camarylis Recipe, and 5 veteran boots/gloves. This completed the 2nd set of symbols. And as usual, Thelandira (f/mus) received more Mega Talt from Uraeus. Grr! I hate that snake.
Adorabelle (f/ele) used 244 Veteran Enchantment Chips to re-enchant her bracelets. The Fire of Palermo became enchanted with ATK + Wild Beast. Oh gosh, another anti-beast bracelet, like Black Bishop from Week 118. The Delphinus became just purely anti-Daemon. Ugh. It needs ATK enchantment. She also won Einschiever Sword (great sword) from Lightning Gate.
The irony is, of course, the fact that the patch came AFTER Christmas.
G1 finally released the Christmas patch for Rescue Rudolph! event. Thankfully, the pet box was reduced from 50 to 15 Christmas Coins. Heh. Maybe they realized and corrected the screw-up after it was mentioned in the forums. So far, the family collected 15 Christmas Coins this week, which most likely would be spent on Pet Box (Rudolph) first.
Bronze mission in Poison Yard map is all about movement speed, so Alustriel (Emilia the Sage) put on her Assassin Boots and fly over to defeat the four circus freaks at the four small hills before the reindeers died. After defeating Avalanche Apparition, everyone in the mission received Santa items from Rudolph in the middle of the map.
Silver mission in Glacial Fortress 3F (aka Ice Wizard's Tower) map involved destroying crystals, so Thelandira (f/mus) used Outrage Shot to break the 4 crystals in the 4 balconies of the map. After defeating Novia's Ghost, she found the 5th crystal which spawned in a random balcony. Thereafter, all families in the mission can receive Santa items from Rudolph.
Gold mission in Titan's Remorse (aka Cabeza de Gigante) map seemed to be the hardest to solo, mainly because it is hard to collect enough Rudolph Ointments before the eggs cracked. (The eggs spawn consecutively in H5, I7, F8, F11, and E7.) There was uncertainty concerning how the reward was calculated, since there were times when the family saved 3 or 4 reindeers, but the last reindeer still gave only 1 Santa item to each family.
G1 also released Andre's Wardrobe/Idge's Chest VII in the cash shop. Unfortunately, the family didn't have enough Gold to spend on them. From other players' feedback, it seemed the drop rate for Dragon Heart Recipe and Draconic Sword is somewhat lame anyway.
