Sword 122: Rudolph Pet

Ambrosia (Emilia) reached Expert Lv.4, while training stances with Soteira (Helena) in Skeleton Dungeon Ancient Area for 2 days. Darkness (Lv.16 → 25) was finally mastered, while Enhanced Tactics (Lv.10 → 14) and Occultism (Lv.15 → 21) gained a few levels as well. Once all 3 stances are maximized, it will be time to spam EXP Cards. Elsewhere, Lolita (Claire) reached Expert Lv.10, while Cacofonix (Rio) also gained a few levels.

The family completed 1 Uraeus, 11 Team Arena, and 7 Arsene Circus missions, looting Symbol of Capricorn, Symbol of Virgo, Symbol of Sagittarius, 2 Symbols of Taurus, and 3 veteran boots/gloves. The family also gained Dragon Heart Recipe from Jorgen in one of the Holy Water Chamber raids. And this is why the family hated the snake nowadays...


Karjalesia (Karjalain) crafted Cut Physical RES Necklace. She then used 104 Lv.100 Enchantment Chips to enchant it with Max HP +1807, Max SP +177, and INT +2. Adorabelle (f/ele) immediately claimed it since she needed the extra SP and INT bonus.

The family traded 15 Christmas Coins for a new pet (Rudolph) and named it Noel. It is basically just a healer, so it is mainly for collection. (It drops items only for GE Korea's 2008 Christmas event.) The extra coins were traded in for other items, such as Angel Ring (hat), Rudolph Doll (back costume), and Santa Costume (Movement Speed +10%, DEF +10 for 30 days). Unlike the pet box, the costumes are not tradable.


The Christmas missions apparently have only one mission lobby. This means that you can use a Gold Key to join an existing Bronze/Silver mission room created by another family using Bronze/Silver Key. Since Gold missions are a bit hard to solo with alternate/mule families, this might be a viable alternative. Plus, there's something strange with this... Anyway, the event is originally planned for 2 weeks (i.e. ending next week's maintenance), but it may be extended for 1 more week until around Jan 18, 2011. [Source]

ShakeTheHeavens clan attacked Ustiur Zona Dos, Tetra Hill, Ferruccio Junction, Pradera de Ceniza, and Scorching Plateau during Colony War. But Phalanx clan managed to defend the colonies before they were fully occupied.

The family experienced 3 disconnections this week. As usual, lag and closed server for various maps happened more or less immediately after the weekly maintenance. Sigh.
