Best Blowout Support Event 2017 until July 04 (Europe) or Aug 23 (USA).  

For so long, there has been no new content (merely revisions of existing content) added to the game. Milking via Lyndon Boxes was the only thing... Now, IMC has finally released a new area... and it's a pathetic one-map release in v20.13.37 (test server).



Bahamar Prophet's Forest
Bahamar Prophet's Forest is essentially like Bristia Scar, with escalating monster levels that will spawn the boss, going up to Lv.150. When the boss appears, the monsters drop Old Chess Pieces and Snail Shells, which nobody really cares about these days. The new map can be reached via Bahamar Swamp of Peril (H1). There is also a mini-boss that respawns in 12 hours (?).

Seriously, when was the last time anyone has seen Lv.150 Breeze? Nobody seriously bothers with it shortly after Breeze was released... The reason is probably the fact that Elite Bristia Weapon Recipe drop rate is too abysmally low. Since Prophet's Forest follows the same design pattern, players really shouldn't expect too much for the drop rate of Recipe - Little Witch's Broomstick (AR35)...

It is interesting to note the Chinese/Taiwanese players' comments in FatSnake's blog here. It seems like even players in other servers are thinking the same thing...
  • Everyone is bored. Players are quitting.
  • With Bristia Scar map design, unless the monsters drop really good stuffs, you can forget about Lv.150 boss since nobody is going to farm there. Another game design failure.
  • Viron Clock Tower is just tired, repetitive, and over-done.
  • Tigres Prison doesn't make money. Roulette is too crappy. You spend more Vis (and effort) raiding than you actually earn.

New Character - Sierra Los
Sierra Los has been added. She is recruitable via quest, which also provides Witch's Old Broomstick (AR33, not tradable). Okay, that's good at least, about bloody time there's a non-cash character. Sierra's Witch Hat is available for sale in the dressing room.

Character Level Cap & HP Adjustments
Character level cap has been increased to Lv.135. Master Lv.10 (100%) will automatically become Master Lv.11 (0%). There is no High Master promotion, so you don't get bonus AR/DR. From Master Lv.2 onwards, HP formula has been changed from (CON x CON)/7.5 + 500 to (CON x CON)/8.4 + 700.

Market Changes
You can now buy things using Elemental Jewels directly. You may now choose to register items in the Market Manager (with different fees) for 48 hours (0.1%), 96 hours (0.18%), or 168 hours (0.26%).

Mutual Party War
If both parties agree to a war, there is no need to use a War Declaration Scroll.

Also, in v20.06.10...
  • Added new character - Selane.
  • Added quest bypasses for Beatrice, Ludin, and Leonele involving Time Paradox or Clock Tower missions.
See Patch Highlights v20.03.13 for earlier patches.

T3Fun is again having Rosa's Summer Event, but with different event rewards this time. I don't think there's an official notice about the event, so thanks to Eollica for sharing this in the forums here. The event quests seem to be the same as before, starting with 1 Small Watermelon Slice, etc.


The event quests include:
  • [First Quest Only] Buy 1 Small Slice of Watermelon (1,000 Vis) from Rosablanca.
  • Kill Rusty Zealot x15, Vedanobah x15, and Hell Hound x15 in Al Quelt Moreza Nartex.
  • Buy Frozen Marlin x1 (5,000 Vis) from Item Dealer in Outside Gigante. Buy Emmenthal Cheese x1 (300 Vis) and Silken Tofu x1 (500 Vis) from Camille in Coimbra.
  • Buy Ferruccio Milk x1 (60 Vis) from Camille in Coimbra, and Chocolate x1 (200 Vis) from Lisa in Coimbra.
  • Mission: Defeat Gracielo, Irawain, Baek Ho, then Gertrude (Human AR/DR 65).
  • Mission: Protect the colony (Object DR 52) from Mueletos Musketeers (Undead AR/DR 57). The martial artists will join your fight later.
I will post about Prophet's Forest later. Another underwhelming update, after so much milking with no new content for so long...

Imperial Wheel S (Japan) has been updated for Oct 2013. See GMラバトの『新アイテム』紹介ブログ! for GM's introduction to the new items.

[KR] Selane & New Emilia's Costume Set
Selane is now in Korea server's Lyndon Box until Nov 07. It includes new hair and costume for Emilia. For more screenshots, see 에밀리아 이 코스튬은뭐다? and 요번 린든 코튬은 에밀코튬이네요.


T3Fun has updated the servers to v19.71.76 (X-Trap 5370). It's nothing much, mostly just stance/skill revision and new food system. See Patch Notes - October 23, 2013 for details. You can also see more upcoming updates at Patch Highlights v20.03.13.



HALLOWEEN 2013
T3Fun is hosting 2013 Halloween Event until Nov 06, 2013. Simply complete a daily quest for Event NPC in Reboldoeux to get 1 Halloween Pumpkin. The event quests involve giving Sierra random items:
  • Pure Talt x100 (First Day Only)
  • Strange Spring x10
  • Strange Clock Equipment x10
  • Golden Apple x5
  • Comodo Meat x10
You can trade 1-6 Halloween Pumpkins for Halloween Candy (x7), Coffin of Jack O'Lantern back costume (temporary/permanent), or Jack O'Lantern Hat for a specific character - Rose Spirit, Sorang, Cano, Viki, Ludin, Claire, Ramiro, or Tiburon.

This event is also available in different regional servers.
Other servers also have Jack O'Lantern Hat for Montoro and Rachel. See 萬聖節帽子 for screenshots of the hat on various characters.

The following are some highlights of upcoming patches for T3Fun servers (currently v19.45.02) up to v20.03.13. The patch notes are based on Korean live servers (not test server). There is barely anything new, really. Just more revisions of one type or other... and of course, player-milking Lyndon Box.


Also, according to the Face Book entry here, Selene will be coming soon in the next Kaching Box Lyndon Box (Korea). What did you expect? Of course, you have to gamble for her. You should know IMC's milking strategy better by now!

This is one of the four weekly raid missions introduced in v10.7.0. The unique loot in this mission is Recipe - Charisma of Reydeavaricia (aka Charisma of Rich King), which is a earring with innate SEN +10. This is useful for summoners, like Viki and Catherine. The enhanced recipe is available in Magia Pioneer Merchant Shop at Rank B and above.



Mission Information
Location: Bahama Base Camp (G12)
Entry Cost: 1 Key [Endless Greed] and 5,000 reputation points
Participants: 1-12
Frequency: 1/week
Duration: 60 minutes
Requirement: None

A few events for T3Fun server... You decide for yourself if they are really worthwhile. Rose Spirit is of course in Lyndon Box.



LUCKY CRYSTAL HOGGER
Event Period: Oct 11-18, 2013
Collect as many Shiny Crystal Chests as you can as roulette rewards. The top 10 players will win one Prosper Weapon (AR33) of their choices. The top 11-20 players will win one Prosper Weapon recipe instead. The top 21-30 players will win 3 Elemental Jewels. For Prosper Weapon information, go to Overbleed Database and search for "Prosper".

You can get Shiny Crystal Chests from the roulette of the following missions.
  • Bounty Hunter - Demonic Porto Bello
  • Bounty Hunter - Demonic Dr. Torsche's Mansion
  • Bounty Hunter - Demonic Prison de Joaquin
  • Party Missions - All
  • Party Arena
  • Castilla Mine
  • Castilla Relic
  • Castilla Tower of Chaos
  • Hell Breaker
  • Secret Tower 2F/3F
  • Blood Fog Forest - Lost Time of Glory
  • Crow Forest - Lift the Raven Curse
  • Bahia Secret Room
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Angler Hunting Ground
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Merman Eater's Nest
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Nightmare Unicorn
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Strange Dungeon of Gullfaxi
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Ice Wizard's Tower Leo Room
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Greed of Treasure Box
  • Coimbra Nimrod Bridge - Hell Valley Chrysalis
Personally, I don't like spam competitions. It's bad enough you need to spam these missions. When only X number of players will win the items, you might end up spamming for nothing. Not really worth the trouble, I think.


PLAYTIME EVENT: ASOKA
Event Period: Oct 08 - Nov 03, 2013
You get 1 point per 10 minutes in-game. Asoka Card (Event) costs 1,700 points, which is 200 points more than the previous character (Battle Smith Idge). Dragonic Sword (AR32) costs 1,200 points, which is the same as the previous weapon Evil Polearm (AR34).

Ridiculous. The reward just keeps getting lamer or costlier. Asoka herself is fine, but they should keep the points at 1,500 or less. Dragonic Sword requiring the same points as Evil Polearm is just stupid. If they don't want to give out Evil Weapons, then at least replace it with Kurenai and reduce the point cost. I don't know if it's worthwhile keeping the computer running just for this..


FESTIVAL DE OCTUBRE
Event Period: Oct 09-23, 2013
Some Face Book crap. Ten lucky winners will get J.D's Cape Pattern costume set.

The following guide is originally posted by Ryght family of Orpesia (G1) server in 2009. I'm re-posting his guide here since his site STNWSource is long dead. The guide is old, and somewhat out-dated. Nevertheless, it is still useful for people who want to try messing around with the game client UI skin.
