Cherlyn & Arctic Wolf Pet

Two new events for North American servers in May 2013. See Patch Note - May 08, 2013. Meanwhile, they tried to fix what isn't broken (possibly with the chat filter) and ended up with client crashes. See Client Issues after today's maintenance (May 8, 2013)Emergency Server Maintenance - May 8, 2013, and Client crash, Cherlyn character card and Witch Craft issues.
  • Removed Growth Stones (100,000 Feso) from Cash Shop
  • Added Custom Wing Coupon (30 days) to Cash Shop for 2,900 T-Coins
In addition, the over-zealous X-Trap 8100 is now blocking Battle Encoder Shirase. Now, my laptop keeps overheating and crashing because I can't throttle the CPU load of ge.exe. If anyone knows of a good process throttle software, please leave a comment or private message.

A new playtime event has begun for May 08-31, 2013. You get 1 point per 10 minutes of game play. Cadet Adriana Character Card costs 1,200 points, while the new Arctic Wolf Pet costs 500 points. To get both items, you need 1,700 points over 23 days... which amounts to about 74 points (12 hours 20 minutes) per day.

The wolf buff is ATK vs. Monsters +15%, Penetration +5, Critical +10, Accuracy +10, Move Speed +10%, and Monster Damage -5%. It is basically the same as Black Dragon Pet, except that it also has monster damage reduction. The wolf reportedly consumes 1 pet food every 4 minutes. [Source]

The previous playtime events were for Sorang (1,200 points), Snake Medal (800 points), Bristia Pioneering Medal (600 points), and Rascel (600 points). I hope the required points stop rising further. I need to let my computer rest once in a while...

Lyndon Box (490 T-Coins) has been updated for May 08-22, 2013, including Cherlyn Character Card, The Witchcraft (AR 34 tome), [Inferno] Ring, and Nero Croma (DR 32). Oh, and "rare" items - Growth Stone x3!
