All skin packs on this blog have been updated to v22.19.56. The default skin used in Japanese client for Armonia Episode 2 is also the same, so this skin version should be good for use up to Episode 2.

If you are using the skin packs from this blog, please download the latest packs to replace the older ones, otherwise you will have missing icons/bars/buttons/etc.

  • Modified button.bmp for the new enhancement window.
  • Added reinforceback.bmp and reinforcepopup.bmp.
  • Filled out all missing files for partial skins. All skin packs now contain the full range of files.
I have also modified character base panel for Classic Polish skin to make it look more like Closed Beta Test (CBT) game client.

Download the updated skin packs from UI SKINS PAGE.


American server has been updated to v22.19.56.

  • Fixed Time Paradox missions. Roulette chest appears at boss' spawn spot after boss dies.
  • Rumin Ores always yield Great Rumin when refining with reputation points.
  • Gold Coins Rush Event - Hm. I think I'll pass! LOL

UI Skins - Pending Update
This update has also modified the UI window for weapon/armor enhancement. All skin packs are currently outdated. I will update all skin packs on this blog soon. The file that needs updating is button.bmp. There are also 2 new files - reinforceback.bmp and reinforcepopup.bmp. As I mentioned before, missing files are not a problem since the game client will auto-load the default files for any missing skin files. However, there are some players who still do not understand how to deal with partial skins, so I will probably be including all skin files in the upcoming skin packs.

  • Beet x100 - acquire from Ustiur Farm
  • Wheat Flour x100 - acquire from Ustiur Farm
  • Golden Egg Fruit x50 - acquire from Ustiur Farm
  • Scale of Siren x5 - various mission roulette (e.g. Castilla, Fury missions)

  • Seed of Rafflesia x5 - various mission roulette (e.g. Castilla, Fury missions)
  • Holy Water of Armonia x10 - See Armonia Daily Quests.
Any delay in quest updates is caused by more trolls from the usual factions - BabiKiller and Moulin. Thanks to Lonewolfs.clan family for squad to kill Abyss Wolf. I practically get the kill immediately upon arrival in Latina. No camping, no spawn time tracking.

Laura wishes to fulfill the wish of her sister Juliana. Breaking the soul stones you collected, you learn that the knights killed by the corrupted Lena had their souls trapped in stones. One of the souls is Alvin, the father of Cepheus. Saint Anis wants to cheer Laura up, so you have to rob bears of their green peppers as ingredients for a dish, despite the fact that the saint hates green peppers. Saint Anis reminds Laura of her sister, so you have to help her make candies. Then, you help Saint Anis to return the favor (again) by making a cross and a silver bullet for Laura.

You discover that Lena had multiple personality disorder, resulting in her splitting into two Abyss forms which are is still conscious like Cepheus. Laura hates God for not protecting her sister. You help Laura release the souls of Abyss Deses and Abyss Desglose, the good and evil personalities of Lena. Abyss Desglose reveals that the army of Abyss will advance soon following Van, the best Memento Mori called Mage of Darkness.

Trying to track down Van, Vincent discovers that Van has summoned Navas and Abyss in El Templo using soul stones as sacrifice. Vincent uses the alternative sacrifice he once used to acquire [Abyss] stance book. Memory Eater Navas is summoned, and reveals that she is a representative of Abyss who fought in the Second Holy War of Armonia, but it was humans who led Van into darkness. Van appears, and says he wants to destroy Armonia, where corruption hidees under the gloss of light. Vincent insists that Navas has corrupted Van, and got bitch slapped for it. Navas eats his memories, injuring his body and soul. Laura finally returns to the cathedral, asking Saint Anis to make a cure.

Since Memento Mori reacts adversely to holy water, you acquire Ruddy Armonium for the saint to mix corruption with holy water. Archbishop Vega intercepts Laura, and threatens to punish her for failure in duty, AWOL, and other charges. The other crusaders are blackmailed into helping Vega who held their families as hostages.

After curing Vincent, Laura finds a note on him. It says, "Watch Vega - Van -". Laura wants to warn the Pope in the cathedral. Again, she is intercepted by Vega and Jurgen. Vega has been cooperating with Jurgen, who threatens to have Vespanola fire the Cannon of Concentrated Magic at Armonia if anything happens to him. Thus, Jurgen secures his escape and the note as well as your silence.
