Show Skill Range Option

Even after telling T3Fun exactly what to do to fix this lost feature, they still fail to make this simple fix after the recent maintenance... Whatever. You can get the file here instead. This file is first made available by Laguna, and is meant for the game clients of American servers.

This is NOT an official patch. Do NOT post in the official GE forum or website.

Close the game client, if it is still running.Download file - [FileSplat] or [MediaFire].Extract the .zip file into Granado Espada\ge folder. Back up original first, if desired.Start the game client.Enable Show Skill Range in Game Options (Alt+O) window in-game.
If you want to do it yourself instead of downloading the file, simply create a new file called options.xml with the following content:

Updated Skins - Alice Blue & Cario

Updated two more UI skins. Cario skin was originally designed by ZeraST (aka Ryght) during v3.0 update in G1 servers. Alice Blue skin has been around longer still, although someone later updated the character information panel with the paw print image... Click on the sample screenshots below for full-size views.

This reminds me of the old GE Europe which removed Jack from the game to prevent botting... Somethings are in the game for a reason. When the publisher randomly removes them, it will likely cause problems later on, either with respect to game balance or quest requirements... The statement eurogamez gave here:

It's true that Cres saves people's time much but....losing too much things... As you Fans r…

Classic Skins

A new blog page has been added for user interface (UI) skins. The old classic skins have also been updated for v20.10.24 (current version for Singapore servers). These include:
Classic Rough (aka SK1) was the default skin design used in v2.0 game client. Classic Polish (aka SK2) was basically a polished up, glossy version of Classic Rough (SK1) skin. Classic Empire (aka SK3) was the default skin design used in v3.0 update, which added Errac, the third civilization. Classic Black (aka SK Black) was an old custom skin that was around since v2.x.Renaissance is the current default skin design used since v5.0 Renaissance update. This pack is for using as a base to design your own skin, and for filling up any missing files of partial skins (if needed). In addition, Catrina skin and Black 2.1 skin are also updated for v20.10.24, which mostly involves a new icon in button.bmp file. I will update and post more skins later, including Ink, Rose, Dark Reaper, etc.

Imperial Wheel S: Nov 2013

Imperial Wheel S (Japan) has been updated for November 2013. The top prizes are now a set of end-game items... Unlike previous releases, the end date for this month's casino is not specified (labeled as "???"). It seems like they want to milk the players more as well.

Mad Auto Baron

Mad Auto Baron mission was introduced in v10.6. See Party Missions for basic information about party missions.

Cabeza de Gigante - Argus

This mission is required for Family Attribute Quests. The unique loot is Recipe - Will/Hope of Argus, which grants INT/STR +10. The enhanced recipes are available in Magia/Vent Pioneer Merchant Shop at Rank B and above.

A note about map names... The dungeon is by default named Gigante (meaning "giant"). If you follow Sedecram scenario quests, Baron Igorni will talk about giants who lived there in the past. Of course, there is the giant head in Sedecram (Tierra Putrefacta) itself. So Interna/Corazon/Cabeza de Gigante prefers to the innards, heart, and brain of the giant... while Heavenly Sedecram dungeon map represents the giant's lungs.

The "Bahia" nonsense comes from IAHGames' attempt to unnecessarily rename Gigante Island to Bahia Island. As a result of Find - Replace All function, all references to giants (gigante) become bahia, which makes the names nonsensical... T3Fun pretty much ripped off IAH translations when the servers were first launched, so the…

Selling Elizabeth's Painting

Elizabeth in Kielce (K9) wants you to sell her painting in Coimbra. This is one of the daily quests to increase Kielce Merchant Favor. Sometimes, her painting is so bad that they enrage people to become Super Saiyan.

Coimbra Scoundrel • Lv.150 Human • Soft Armor • None • Medium
HP 52,794,720 • ATK Rating 76 • ATK 1,223,877 • DEF Rating 76 • DEF 102
Penetration 0 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
However, they cannot hit flying characters... so what happens if you wait it out for 12 minutes?

The end result is the same, even if you stay alive to the end. Notice she is selling the same damn painting everyday? She just ripped the painting from Dr. Torsche's Mansion to pass off as her own. No wonder the scoundrels are tired of her crap.

GE Europe 2 Soon

A new publisher will be opening its GE servers for Europe region, after the failed service by RNTS on August 01, 2013. See End of GE Europe for details. The new GE Europe Facebook says on Oct 24, 2013:
Granado Espada Official European Service will be re-launched by EuroGamez GmbH. EuroGamez said that they will launch the English version very soon and the German version and French version will be followed early of next year.  The teaser site is now online at The font for Coming soon... looks nice. Anyone knows the font name?

The teaser video features scenes from Bristia 2-2 and Bristia 2-3, so the game version will probably be v19.15 or later. The teaser artwork package can be downloaded here, including 20 large (1200 px) .JPG files.

Interestingly, they actually have a Join Translation Project (German). I hope this means they won't have "Wild Wild Wild Wild Boar" in the game. Will Catherine still be a gangbanger in this version?  They plan…

Twisted Spacetime Room

If you are doing this mission within your faction, it is recommended to do with the minimum number of people (12), if possible. This way, the entire faction can have enough people for multiple runs per week, maximizing the drops for the entire faction.

Mission Information
Location: Lucifer Castle Death Corridor (F2)
Frequency: 1/week
Participants: 12-30
Duration: 120+ minutes
Entry Cost: None
Requirement: Completed Judgment Day scenario; Portero at Death Corridor (F3/G3) must have been killed since maintenance.

Bahama Episode 1

Bahama Episode 1 - Prophet's Forest has been added in v20.16.82 (live server). The entire scenario requires the following characters/items:
Sharon - created for quest dialogues; see Recruit Sharon questsWitch's Hat x1 (not consumed) - quest reward in Bahama Pioneering Scenario 🔗Stalactite Piece x10 - drop by Cave Robber Ghost in Bahamar Underground Cave 1FSnake Skin x5 - drop by Black Fish in Bahamar Underground Cave 1F

Baron Igorni wants you to clear the swamp of mutant honeycombs. After meeting Sierra with her Witch's Hat, she left the house. Leonora asks you to follow her to the Swamp of Peril. After saving Sierra from Royal Honeycomb, she reveals that the honeycombs do not come from the swamp area. She gives you a jewel called Spirit of Forest and asks you to meet her in the Swamp of Peril.

The Forest Guardian appears and stops you from going further, despite Sierra's pleas. Royal Honeycomb attacks, but you push pass it and confront Nena. Sierra explains that the P…

Preview - Prophet's Forest

For so long, there has been no new content (merely revisions of existing content) added to the game. Milking via Lyndon Boxes was the only thing... Now, IMC has finally released a new area... and it's a pathetic one-map release in v20.13.37 (test server).

Bahamar Prophet's Forest
Bahamar Prophet's Forest is essentially like Bristia Scar, with escalating monster levels that will spawn the boss, going up to Lv.150. When the boss appears, the monsters drop Old Chess Pieces and Snail Shells, which nobody really cares about these days. The new map can be reached via Bahamar Swamp of Peril (H1). There is also a mini-boss that respawns in 12 hours (?).

Seriously, when was the last time anyone has seen Lv.150 Breeze? Nobody seriously bothers with it shortly after Breeze was released... The reason is probably the fact that Elite Bristia Weapon Recipe drop rate is too abysmally low. Since Prophet's Forest follows the same design pattern, players really shouldn't expect too mu…

Rosa's Secret Event

T3Fun is again having Rosa's Summer Event, but with different event rewards this time. I don't think there's an official notice about the event, so thanks to Eollica for sharing this in the forums here. The event quests seem to be the same as before, starting with 1 Small Watermelon Slice, etc.

The event quests include:

T3Fun has updated the servers to v19.71.76 (X-Trap 5370). It's nothing much, mostly just stance/skill revision and new food system. See Patch Notes - October 23, 2013 for details. You can also see more upcoming updates at Patch Highlights v20.03.13.

Patch Highlights v20.03.13

The following are some highlights of upcoming patches for T3Fun servers (currently v19.45.02) up to v20.03.13. The patch notes are based on Korean live servers (not test server). There is barely anything new, really. Just more revisions of one type or other... and of course, player-milking Lyndon Box.

Also, according to the Face Book entry here, Selene will be coming soon in the next Kaching Box Lyndon Box (Korea). What did you expect? Of course, you have to gamble for her. You should know IMC's milking strategy better by now!

Endless Greed

This is one of the four weekly raid missions introduced in v10.7.0. The unique loot in this mission is Recipe - Charisma of Reydeavaricia (aka Charisma of Rich King), which is a earring with innate SEN +10. This is useful for summoners, like Viki and Catherine. The enhanced recipe is available in Magia Pioneer Merchant Shop at Rank B and above.

Mission Information
Location: Bahama Base Camp (G12)
Entry Cost: 1 Key [Endless Greed] and 5,000 reputation points
Participants: 1-12

Duration: 60 minutes

The following guide is originally posted by Ryght family of Orpesia (G1) server in 2009. I'm re-posting his guide here since his site STNWSource is long dead.
