Recruit Hektor quests were added in v26.69.00. This quest guide is translated from FatSnake's guide, and will be updated when I have done the quest myself. You will need the following items:
- Reinforced Leather x200
- Health Generator x2,500
Check also European server's guides - Recruit Friede and Recruit Liung .
|That awkward moment when you are late in delivery by 3 years, and the other person still remembers...|
IAHGames is officially closing their game server on April 27, 2017. According to their official Facebook post here :
There is no mention of account transfer. Before this notice, the cash shop was changed to charge 1 G-Point (gold) for various items. This "event" makes it unlikely that transfer will be available, so keen players will have to restart on another server. There are currently 3 English servers available.
European server (EuroGamez) seems to be the most updated and eventful. They are on v27.31.33 and, according to this post , are planning to update to v27.96.08 by April or May.
American server (T3Fun) lags behind in updates at the same pace as Singapore server, currently at v26.60.82. Because of the update lag, we miss out on several Korea-exported events as well.
Hm. European server actually sells old premium characters from web shop ... I guess that lack of randomness means people don't get them unless they want the characters, which explains the lack of surplus inside market manager. Thank to Lana for the information.
Renaissance server (private), as with most private servers, is lagging badly behind in v21.84.39 (Armonia Episode 1). They do a lot more customization, but players will have to deal with the lack of new content for a very long time...
I was first introduced to Granado Espada on Singapore server during v2.1, under Starstorm family on Caracci server. The first update I encountered was v2.4 update, which introduces Bahia Island and the Island of Fire. To be honest, I'm surprised they lasted this long. When they closed their website/forums and moved to Facebook, it already seems like desperate cost-cutting measures. I haven't seen a MMO game running official notices through Facebook...
I guess IMC Games is trying to squeeze too much money out of a game that they haven't put that much effort into nowadays. Incidentally, according to this post , Nexon is investing in IMC Games with respect to Tree of Savior...
Well, don't ever spend too much on an online game, so you won't regret it when the server closes. Bye, sGE.
A few new events starting this week...
School Look Event 3/29-4/12, 2017
Talk to Suspicious Veronif in Cite de Reboldoeux (E4) and trigger quest item acquisition in a randomly determined location for 2 School Look Tickets every day. You can acquire a total of 30 tickets during the event period.
Play Time Event 3/29-5/22, 2017
American server is having another Play Time Event for 55 days. The 4 featured rewards require a total of 5800 points, or an average of 106 points (18 hours) per day. Costume Coupon can be exchanged for a weapon costume from a selected list - see Event Added Mechanics .
World X PvP Tournament (April)
World X PvP (single fixed mode) offers bonus rewards (Strata Devil Weapons/Accessories, etc.) for top 30 players. All participating Families ranked as Knight and above will receive participatory items - Rose Wing (30 Days) Gift Box and 100 Pet Food.
Claire's Mission Event 3/28-4/11, 2017
European server is recycling Claire's Carnation Event from 2014.
The skin packs (v25.35.50) from Skins page are currently outdated. To update the skin to v27.31.33 (usable for the current American/European clients), do the following:
- Download and install the desired skin (v25.35.50) from UI Skins page.
- Download and install ImageMagick from ImageMagick or MediaFire .
- Download updateskin_v273133.zip .
- Extract updateskin_v273133.zip into Granado Espada\release\user\skin folder.
- R-click on updateskin_v273133.bat and run as administrator.
- If prompt for ImageMagick file, locate and select magick.exe file (usually in C:\Program Files\ImageMagick folder).
There are additional files in the new skin, such as missiongoal.png, missiongoal_a.bmp, missiongoal_b.bmp, and tooltip_line.bmp. But since the files never existed in the old skin packs, it is fine not to have them as the client will automatically load the default files if they are missing.
Starting with New Era update, old premium characters will become available for free recruitment - Queen of Pioneering Grandma, Sorang, and Sniper Bernelli. These are acquired via the Achievement window (Alt + L). For more on the achievement system, see Prestigio Mundial .
Queen of Pioneering, GrandmaIn v25.50.87, her character card is given as a General Achievement reward for reaching a total of 10,000 Achievement Points.
SorangIn v25.73.64, her character card is given as a Quest Achievement reward for reaching Frogfish Hunter June Favor Rate 150.
Sniper BernelliIn v25.94.03, her character card is given as a Quest Achievement reward for reaching 10,000 points for all 5 Kielce Favor Rates - Port Union, Merchant Union, Back Alley Poor, Government General, and Laboratory.
Dissonance scenario quests were added in v26.48.95. This guide is based on American game client (v26.60.82). In v27.56.86, this quest will be made easier by reducing amount of quest items or improving their drop rates. You will need the following items:
- Solvent x200 (x10 in v27.56.86)
- Magical Rose x3 (x1 in v27.56.86)
The Shield of Illier quests were added in v26.32.48. This quest guide is based on American game client (v26.60.82). In v27.56.86, the drop rates of various quest items will be improved. You do not need any items, but you must have Adriana (or Cadet Adriana) to initiate some NPC dialogues.
See the new Quests page where various quests are consolidated by their respective patches.
The Symphonia Episode 2 update (v26.32.48) introduced 2 cliques in Illier - Evora and Patrician. You may do the repeatable quest for 1 clique then do the same for the other clique, but you cannot do them both at the same time. (Once you started on one, the other NPC will not give you the quest.)
When you gain favor rate for 1 clique, you loses half as much favor for the other clique (e.g. Evora +2, Patrician -1). Favor rate will not become negative.
These quests can be repeated multiple times per day. The first time for each day is free. Subsequent repetitions require a cumulative cost of 2 Silver Bars (50,000 Vis each).
Mission Accomplishment: Evora is used for repeating Talos mission, acquiring Talos and Amy artifacts, and crafting selected Elite Constellation Weapons (e.g. sword, elemental bracelet, rifle).
Mission Accomplishment: Patrician is used for acquiring Talos artifacts and crafting selected Elite Constellation Weapons (e.g. rod, staff, cannon).
There used to be a very old guide in sGE forums, which had since been taken offline. These 2 optional side quests introduce the "Fake" Ice Gate Equipment, which were upgraded to ATK Rating 28 or DEF Rating 23-24. While the equipment are low-end for current players, these forgotten quests also unlock access to the 2 shops which sell recipes for these equipment. The shops still exist as seen here in The Symphonia Episode 2 update (v26.60.82).

11주년 초콜릿을 드려요 Feb 09-23, 2017
American server has updated to v26.60.82 (Symphonia Episode 1-2) on Jan 18, 2017. The previous update was more than 6 months ago (Jun 29, 2016). X-Trap was also updated to 10.2016-2272. Only the skin file gauge.bmp needs to be updated (copy/paste on new file), otherwise the existing skin packs are still usable.
|New blog header for v26.60.82.|
I was gone for a few months. I actually considered visiting for Christmas , but I was on Windows 10, which the previous X-Trap had issues with. I'm still not sure if I'm just visiting or really staying in the game again. For now, I'm clearing back-logs of quests (New Era Episode 2, Sariel, etc.). I'll probably update the quest guides as I do them, but since there are quite a few, it may take a while. (Prior to this, I was playing Sid Meier's Civilization VI .)
