Recruit Selene quest guide has been updated.

Sword 140: Hapkido & More Darkness

Adelina made a trip to the Land of the Dead, farming 46 Pure Otites out of 40 Mysterious Powders and reaching Veteran Lv.2. Karjalesia (Karjalain) then used the Pure Otites to craft Enhanced Physical RES Necklace, which was in turn used to craft Cut Physical RES Necklace. It was enchanted with DEX +1 with 2 L100 Enchantment Chips. Bleh, whatever. It will keep for now.

Eisheth (Crazy Emilia) received a new coat armor and decided to re-enchant it. The re-enchantment took 731 L100 Enchantment Chips and 265 Enchant Boosters to acquire DEF Rating +3. Enchant Boosters were too expensive lately, so she skipped using them after the family ran out of stock. Besides, getting no enchantment is pretty much the same as getting a 1-line crappy enchantment, and there were a lot of the latter even for those chips used with Enchant Boosters. It was upgraded to +7 after using 120 Upgrade Accelerators, 1 Lacquer +5: Veteran, and 8 Lacquers +6: Veteran. The 2nd socket was opened by default, while the 3rd socket will have to wait since the family fund was kind of depleted.

The crazy chick also re-enchanted her The Judgment of Bywn (staff), which had ATK 13%, ATK Speed 26%, ATK Rating +2. The re-enchantment returned with ATK Rating +2 twice... Then, it was enchanted with ATK Rating +3 and Anti-Daemon enchantments. The entire process used up 305 Veteran Enchantment Chips and 305 Enchant Boosters. The staff's 3rd socket was opened after 12 attempts.

The staff would probably be good for [Darkness] stance, but currently the only character with that stance is Ambrosia (Emilia) who incidentally cannot use staff. So, the family acquired [Darkness] stance for Mystra (f/wiz), and bought [Hapkido] stance book for Tsurara (Soso) with 1.5m feso. The family also bought Grade School Uniform costume for 600,000 feso, but the costume upgrade quest for Tiburon/Ramiro will have to wait as well since it requires 20 Mysterious Powders.

This week's loot from raid missions consisted of 2 Symbols of Leo and Symbol of Pisces from Team Arena; Elite Le Blanc (sco) Recipe and Symbol of Leo from Griffon; Artisan's Gauntlets Recipe and Artisan's Gloves Recipe from Accursed Sedecram. Sadly, nothing worthwhile came out of Joaquin Underground Prison and Torsche's Basement for the whole week.

The family experienced 21 disconnections this week, disrupting 1 Arsene's Circus mission, 2 Castilla Mine missions, 1 Griffon field raid, 1 Castilla Temple zoning, 1 Pure Otite farming run, and 1 zoning during Colony War. After maintenance, the server began to suffer from problems. Besides plenty of lag spikes and disconnections, several maps also suffered from lack of monster spawns.
