Singapore Server Closure

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.)

School Look & Play Time Events

A few new events starting this week for American and European servers...

[USA] 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.

Update: European server has started the same event for 3 weeks (9/19-10/10, 2017). See [EU] School Look Event 🔗.

[USA] 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 🔗.

Update Skins v27.31.33

The skin packs (v25.35.50) from Skins page are currently outdated.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:
Download and install the desired skin (v25.35.50) from UI Skins page.Download and install ImageMagick from ImageMagick or MediaFire.Download into Granado Espada\release\user\skin folder.R-click on updateskin_v273133.bat and run as administrator.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.

Recruit Achievement Characters

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 🔗.

The Symphonia Episode 2-2 Scenario

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 …

Recruit Dietrich

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 demoli…

Bethel Daily Quests

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).

In v27.80.88, Story Page - D…

Katovic Equipment Quests

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).
