We are still taking things slowly this week, so there isn't much to report. Thelandira (f/mus) and Artemisia (Calyce) reached Master Lv.8 inside Castilla Relic mission. The weekly Griffon mission dropped Symbol of Aquarius and Symbol of Sagittarius. We got another Eye of Veilant Recipe from Joaquin Underground Prison missions. We managed to solo raid the mission once, using a subsidiary (mule/alt) family to start, and got L100 Weapon and 2 ASO Boxes... It seems like soloing is too much trouble for too little loot.
We went to Reboldeaux and commissioned Claude to craft +5 The Wits of Gemini (knuckle) and +3 Golden Feet (gaiters). The knuckle was rather friendly so far. It was upgraded to +7 with 60 Upgrade Accelerators, 2 Lacquers +5: Expert, and 2 Lacquers +6: Expert. The final enchantment [ATK + ATK Speed + Stun + Lightning/Mental ATK + Golem] was obtained after 33 Veteran Enchantment Chips and 33 Enchant Sedatives.
Unfortunately, the Golden Feet (gaiters) turned out to be cursed. When we first saw its default +3 upgrade with no socket, we already suspected it. The enchantment used 603 L100 Enchantment Chips to finally get [ATK + Fire ATK + Golem], with a rather low ATK percentage. We even had to re-enchant [ATK Rating +1] 5 times, and [ATK Rating +3] once. The upgrading process turned out to be even worse. It used a total of 780 Upgrade Accelerators, 17 Lacquers +5: Veteran, and 34 Lacquers +6: Veteran... and the blasted thing still remained at +6! Worst upgrading failure ever! From +6 to +7 is 25% (1 in 4) success rate with maximum Upgrade Accelerators... how can it fail 17 times?! This is ridiculous. We are totally poor now, so opening sockets will have to wait.
The Devourers have more promotions this week. Get 1 free Elegant Pandera Jacket Costume for every 3,500 Gold purchased during Sep 23-25, 2011. It seems like they are bringing out the old variant textured costumes, so we may be seeing White Bone Frame and White Dragon Coat costumes soon. You may preview them in My Dress Room from the top menu.
There were 5 disconnections this week. During the weekend, servers were closed for all 3 towns (both channels) in Orpesia. As a result, party missions were postponed.
