Happy Holidays

Just posted to greet you all a happy holidays. I joined GEEU's Loading Screen Event which ended recently and thankfully, I won. But out of the four entries I submitted, my least favorite entry was picked. That just goes to show that art is very subjective. Below is one of the entries that didn't win which is my favorite and the one I made for the coming holidays.

Pioneer's Daily Memo Updated 1.9

Updated Pioneer's Daily Memo with the following changes:

• Remade Surveyor to present characters in different barracks..
• Fixed and updated seed data.

In an event that I think could have been worse, the blog's template and the daily memo broke all of a sudden. I still don't know what could be the reason the blog's template suddenly broke but the daily memo broke because google stopped it's web hosting support which I painfully discovered a few days ago. I transfered the hosting somewhere else and hopefully it all works out.

I have also updated Family Level Calculator to look more like the barracks for easier sorting and organization. It might still have some bugs but I had to push it early since the blog and particularly the daily memo have been broken as I have mentioned earlier.

New Icon Update 6

In case anyone was wondering, I have been busy with work and with actually playing the game. I made this blog to last long without me having to constantly post but to just present helpful tools and guides to pioneering in Granado Espada. Hopefully most information I presented are still good and relevant. I have recently updated Prestigio Mundial but it is still lacking most of the time consuming and infeasible achievements. I don't think I can finish it all but I will update the ones I do.

As I have mentioned, I was busy actually playing the game and I admit the recent events like Family Growth Support Event, Hot Summer Colection 2016, Crafted Double Payout Event and Special Enhancement Event have kept me busy and happy. The decision to switch servers was a good one and thanks to the GEEU team for doing a better job. Here are the new icons for those who are using the Daily Memo.

Bloody Navy Kano Supreme Commander Kano Aclla Banshee Natalie

Trance Robo Mechanics (Overbleed)

In commemoration of DelKreuz's recently closed website, I have reposted in my opinion one of his most useful guide. It contains information on making Viki's robots more "imba" although I am not sure if all information are still accurate.

Something You Might Not Know #4 - Dump of the New World

Warning! Improper handling of this information may result in the permanent lost of your items.

Initially started as partial bug of Katovic questline, it became a hidden game functionality useful for those who want to keep their inventory optimized. I am talking about Ryrin's Heart located at the Frozen Plain E6. You can drag any item including premium items except for quest item into Ryrin's Heart and it will be lost permanently. Even though it asks the quantity of items to be dropped, it only takes one at a time so it may take a while to get rid of bulk items.

The Symphonia patch also addresses the Ryrin's Heart by adding it to Trade Password Protection functionality and as a side note, the shelf besides the "Rescue Knight Material Administrator" also functions like the Ryrin's Heart but was fixed in a later patch. This adds to the legitimacy of Ryrin's Heart as a de facto trash bin for undiscardable items since it wasn't fixed along with it.

Symphonia Ep. 1 and 2 - Patch Notes

With Symphonia Episode 1 and 2 fast approaching, I wanted to prepare a little bit about the changes coming. I would complain about the format of which they give out the patch notes but I think they deserve some credit with actually bothering with the patch notes. Instead, I decided to format the patch note myself and in a more digestible form, reordering by importance, changed some grammar and corrected some typo.

The original patch notes are linked as folllows: Here are part 1 and part 2 in case you prefer to read it as is.

Symphonia Episode 1 & 2 - v25.90.29 ~ v26.60.82

New Icon Update 5

There are times when I contemplate if I made the right choice about switching servers. This is not one of those times. The Granado Espada Europe server has announced that Symphonia is coming this July; the first English speaking server to do so and not just Episode 1 but also Episode 2 simultaneously. We are also given decent events that everyone can enjoy like an Attendance Event and a Token Event unlike some other server that only caters event to those who can afford it but I digress.

Vanessa Hektor Nina Jaina Dupelecy

These are the latest icons from the new characters except for Nina which I don't think is included in the official version for now. I have noticed that IMC's development has staggered for Granado Espada. The pattern of having a promotional character for Lyndon’s Box every month has skipped a month. It may have something to do with focusing their effort in their other franchise since it have been recently released for international consumption and may need some more attention. Nevertheless, I think there have been some interesting developments lately like the Weapon/Ring Switcher as I have mentioned before and now, a great improvement on the Tooltip.
