The family continued with the task of training new stances. Athena (f/fig) mastered Tronada Cruz. Mnemosyne (Torsche) and Orpheus (Rio) continued to train Death Chopping (Lv.15 → Lv.22) and Prelude (Lv.12 → Lv.21) respectively. Orpheus (Rio) reached Master Lv.2 while training stances, and Qilue (f/sco) reached Master Lv.7 while raiding. Quetzalcoatl (Nar) was also promoted to Expert Lv.1.
Qilue (f/sco) put on a Bear Costume and joined Animal Sambal Parade at the last minute to receive 2 AM Boxes, which dropped 10 Enchant Boosters and 50 Hermes Potions. The treasures of the Lunar Maiden this week consisted of 5x6 Lucky Pouches, 3x2 Rice-Cake Soups, 1 Strength Potion (Event), 1 Brown Bunny Band (30 days), and 2 Bunny Bands (30 days). So many Bunny Bands... I'd rather have some of the other permanent hats/costumes.
The family did the usual raid missions, and received Symbol of Pisces and Symbol of Scorpio from Team Arena, Symbol of Capricorn and Enhanced Mental RES Necklace Recipe from Rafflesia, Symbol of Scorpio from Sharffenberger, and Artisan's Leather Belt Recipe from Accursed Sedecram. Sadly, the rewards from Joaquin Underground Prison and Torsche's Mansion Basement raid missions were all junks, mostly Honor Cards and Portable Ancient Star Orb Boxes.
Scharissa (Idge) crafted Belt, Qualified Belt, Artisan's Grieves, and Artisan's Leather Belt for the Masters, who then reported back to the Captain of Errac after clearing the Necroshamans previously (see Journal 129). Concerned that Haman could banish ogres as if they were vermin, the Captain was envious and wanted to be the chief, thereby asking the family to help him to stage a coup. According to him, if Haman looks into a person's eyes, she will know what he is thinking. After defeating the guards, the family completed the assassination mission, but the Captain realized Haman may not even be human, as she was still sitting there as if nothing had happened. Perhaps this is the secret of one of the Five Elements - God's Blood (see Journal 97). This completed the entire Errac Quest Series, but the family was left wondering about the meaning of "huop". Google and Wikipedia failed to provide insights as well.
During Colony War this week, Phalanx clan regained 2 colonies. The colony occupants were Schiavona (15), Phalanx (6), ShakeTheHeavens (1), and What (1).
The family experienced 8 disconnections this week, disrupting Joaquin Underground Prison x1 and wasted several Ancient Relic Pieces in Castilla Ruins. The servers were closed for a few hours in a few vital maps, such as both channels of Auch and a few other towns as well, effectively locking players out of the game since there was a mass disconnection prior to that. See here for forum posts. After the weekly maintenance, a few bugs were finally fixed, including the one which can be exploited to summon families to Secret Tower 3F for unlimited General Guard raids. See Maintenance Change Log.
