Singapore server is closing on April 27, 2017 (Thu) at 12:00 hours (UTC+8).  

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. One good thing is that the Lucky Shop (cash casino) allows older premium characters to be more readily available. (It seems harder to find such characters in European server, once their Lyndon Boxes expired.)

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:

  1. Download and install the desired skin (v25.35.50) from UI Skins page.
  2. Download and install ImageMagick from ImageMagick or MediaFire .
  3. Download updateskin_v273133.zip .
  4. Extract updateskin_v273133.zip into Granado Espada\release\user\skin folder.
  5. R-click on updateskin_v273133.bat and run as administrator.
  6. If prompt for ImageMagick file, locate and select magick.exe file (usually in C:\Program Files\ImageMagick folder).
ImageMagick is a free command line tool for automated image-processing.

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. A few of them are available via quests, while others (like the ones below) are rewards for the new achievement system. These are acquired via the Achievement window (Alt + L). For more on the achievement system, see Prestigio Mundial .




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)



Synopsis :
Bagellan Witchcraft Troops have broken into Berner Mansion 2F, so Duke Bethel wants to demolish the mansion. Leona confronts Monblant Bethel, who admits that he is working with Truman to create a weapon for Illier. Apparently, this is with the archon's approval.

You collect some Dark Soul Fragments, which bear the mark that Leona once saw in the old book of Stratavista. The Dark Soul soon appears to trash-talk. Leona discerns that it is becoming stronger and that Truman must be using Magical Roses from the Garden of Heaven for his weapon.

Dr. Torsche makes a Stone Gas Magic Sphere out of Stone Gas Runes from Talos, and you use it to break the otite barrier in the mansion. You find Truman with his new weapon, Auto Baron T. You retreat after a brief fight.

Leona surmises that Auto Baron T is powered by Magical Roses and that it threatens the imperial capital Ilissia. You report to Grandma, who shrugs and asks you to waste time and rob Reaper Garas of their bandages for those injured by monsters. She affirms that Violacea will take care of the New Continent, even though they can't even find bandages on their own...

Upon return to Bethel, Monblant left to destroy Auto Baron T without Evora, and Dietrich scoffed at him. You keep the golem occupied while the army evacuates. Leona temporarily shuts down the power source. Jurgen appears, claiming to be sent by Marquis Hernandez to kill the Dark Soul. Auto Baron T has been subverted by the Dark Soul, so Truman whines about it. The Dark Soul then vanishes.

Using Magical Roses, you recover the book Bernier Rose Annihilation from the mansion library. The book claims that Magical Roses can be overcome by more powerful Magical Roses, so you acquire some materials for Leona to amplify her Magical Roses.

When you defeat Auto Baron T, the Dark Soul appears and says it needs a body to fill its power, so it will kill Jurgen first. It claims that it and Leona are a pair that annihilates each other, like Magical Roses. Leona wonders about its identity. Since it opposes Jurgen, it cannot be Stratavista.

The archon gave the order to stop the demolition of the mansion. Evora and Patrician agreed to destroy Auto Baron T. Leona writes a letter to Grandma, claiming that someone legendary will show in the New Continent.

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.

Synopsis :
The royal guard commander Dietrich is bored, so she decided to find a way to screw Duke Bethel over. She visits the slums to give some money, but Lynn previously warned them not to trust her since she does not want them to become a political tool for Dietrich.

Duke Bethel asks you to watch Dietrich who is on probation and has gone to Bernier Mansion. You catch up to Dietrich and beat off some vanguards. Duke Bethel claims that surviving assassinations only proves one's competence and is expected for nobles of Illier.

Dietrich implores you to investigate the reason Duke Bethel is so keen on demolishing Bernier Mansion. You discover that they are secretly developing something under the pretense of demolishment. Dietrich thinks it is a weapon to help Bagellan Witchcraft Troops and Bethel Vanguards to fight against Herbert Knights and Shausen Ironsides.

You find Polluted Otite in the mansion, where Leona thinks Truman is hiding. You stop the machine soldiers from leaving the mansion, and Dietrich wants to search for Stratavista on the second floor.

You find Duke Bethel's contract in the mansion, and stop various monsters from taking Magical Rose Stems to the second floor. Dietrich leads Evora troops across the Apians River, only to run into a fight with Duke Bethel and his vanguards. As a civil war nearly breaks out, Lynn and Leona convinces Dietrich to stop as the chaos of a civil war may invite Targa to invade Illier.

Dietrich reports the incident to the archon, but Count Bagellan takes the fall and resigned as commander of Witchcraft Troops. Lynn asks Dietrich to remember the pledge of the Herbert Knights: "Wield a sword with a cold icy heart."

After attempting to recruit you, Dietrich asks you to recover the runes of Talos for Valeron to repair her sword. After her sword has been repaired, Dietrich challenges Duke Bethel to a duel. She claims that they have come too far for unity, one of them has to die eventually to unite Illier.

At Lynn's advice, you bring Adriana to meet Dietrich, who were rivals 10 years ago. Adriana tells her that a leader must be two-faced so she can be level-headed and yet embrace the people. Agreeing with her rival, Dietrich decides to see more of the world by joining your family.

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).
