The Sudden Enlightenment

The newest patch for SGE which is the Renaissance V 5.0, came with a big BANG!!! The patch itself totally proved the meaning of rebirth on the gameplay. Fresh contents that totally lured old players and quitters to come back. The update boasts itself with all the latest expansion that makes the gameplay more amusing and fun.

I go take a trip on the coolness of this patch.

First of all. The logging in. The new log in screen is quite nicer and got the pictures of the new maps and mobs. the log in box is not that bulky like the previous one.

Next is the barracks. Slicker and well organized. The most adorable about it is the save point of where you want to start. Really helpful because you don't have to warp back from town. The interface is more convenient and not bulky.

As I warped my way to town, I am awestruck at the new UI. Really cool stuff and It took me for a day or two on learning it. New icons and new menus. After warping in I had been indulged on the "My Dress Room" function. A really good function before buying costumes. I enjoyed it so much that its the first thing i did rather than walking around town and noticing that the npcs changed locations.

OK the only shocking problem that made us all worry is the rings. "Where are our characters' rings?". That really caused so much ruckus and broad rantings. But apparently GM Xanxus made an announcement that its all in the MM cabinet, safe and sound. Well after that we noticed that the stat points are all reset haha. It caused so much trouble clicking again those skill points for every characters. Luckily that expert stances are retained.

After re-equipping my rings and getting the stat points used, I went in to the new fresh map , Castilla. Its a seashore map which reminds me of Outside Bahia. A really small base camp map which ends in the warp to the Castilla Dungeons. I urgently got the quest then tried doing it asap.


The first leg of the Castilla Missions is the Castilla Mines. This is where you have to defeat bosses and get the required items. Apparently the quest item is not a sure drop so you need to come in several times. And doing it is free per day, any succeeding attempts is paid with 1 ancient relic item consecutively. I went in the mines solo just to explore it. But sadly I only defeated Chaos Ararat and got his item. The mission is good to finish with a squad, easier and faster. If u got imba equips its ok to solo it.




Lets go to the Colony War. New system = new lag. The lag is really dreadful. Imagine the factions characters + mobs + environment + enemies. My PC kept on lagging like hell T_T. It is really a frustrating thing for me since I don't own a very expensive computer.

Well to cheer things up, I got a new family member. That's right, I already got Asoka. I didn't spam GP and here she is looking happy being a part of the Summerscent Family. It took me 5 tries to get 2 Gold Tokens consecutively so no sweat in obtaining her. A very unexpected thing in my whole GE life. All I want is to buy a costume at HCOF and here she is waiting to be trained^^


I named her "Natsumi" which means "beautiful summer". I intend to make her a tanker for the upcoming imba quest for Valeria. She is very promising as a melee character so it's really worthy having her around. After making her, off she go in training.




Bounty Hunter missions had became a fad in the new version. Together with other raids its a roulette reward system so it's really worth trying. I finished a sacred chaos requiem mission with only me and a factionmate. The Bahama and Sacred missions is quite OK to solo if got racials. AOE is a must or u might just want to eat red lolli and run at the very end and fight the boss.


Involving to Bounty Missions is a wonderful thing to earn items so I tend to do it if got time.

When it comes to family level up, there is a reward for each level you gain. This is also a cool stuff because you can get premium items from the chest. I got up to level 9 of the reward box. The loots are nice including 15 days wings and potions. Also it have some 30 days costumes and stance rings which are really helpful.

New costumes are updated to at ABS and HCOF for Feng-Ling, Romina, Asoka and Musketeers. Also the Pose guide 11 is released via HCOF. The Wizard Serpent Costume caused so much ruckus since it is released at ABS as top loots. Many got enraged by this step that IAH undertook including me. Some players collect costumes as an inspiration to continue playing GE. If it is also deprived, I can't imagine the disappointments of those players. It should rather be at HCOF for ample amount of tokens than gamble your way to get it at ABS.

As the new patch is running its way for the 3rd week or so. Some problems arise 1 by 1. Here comes the lag issue just lately. And now the most crucial is the ABS bug on ELB recipe. It gave me an item instead of the recipe which is really fishy. Apparently some of my factionmates experienced it too. No wonder ELB sales got a boost these days. I hope it is fixed ASAP without banning those innocents.

Well here ends my ongoing observations at the new patch. Currently leveling my Asoka to Master and waiting for the new costumes to arrive weeeheeee. I heard that Romina Castilla Costumes can be unlocked after the Castilla episode 1 quest so it gave me the urgency to finish my quests fast.

Experience the Renaissance!!!

At last the Renaissance patch is here. All new contents and visuals that can really boost up gaming experience. Almost few minutes and the servers are up so for now I gonna do a little exploring. Here is the official poster.


Also the official website is updated with a new feel and look. Haizz I really love the Renaissance theme. Blue and white represented by skies and clouds really feel so heavenly. Match it up with metallics the theme became utterly amusing to see.

I'm so excited to experience the game and I'm really thrilled seeing my winning loading screens. I wonder how it looks like in-game^^

Stomp!! Stomp!!

I had been training my Emilia Guilliano (Millia) to master this past week and she is now promoted before the patch arrives. That was my last stay at Sacred Dungeon for the 4.5 patch and I am looking forward on training other lowbies and also the "must-have" rnpcs like Asoka and Valeria. Since Valeria had a 1 month exclusivity it kinda made me sad because its her what I am looking forward to at the Renaissance. Eitherway I hope I can get Asoka to add a fresh member on the family. She seems to be a good tanker though. My Female Fighter (Solange) and Nar (Enzo) is stuck to Expert so maybe gonna try leveling them 3 while waiting for Valeria to come out yey.

Also while waiting for the new patch I tired revisiting the plantation to finish the quest and feel a new atmosphere. I honestly don't level much at the capybara maps so going here is kinda nice. I bought Calyce (Ashlee), male Musketeer (Usher) and Viki (Ashton) for a change of line up. This ranger team is kinda cool to look at while playing.

First to accomplish is to fill the food packs with 200 capybara foods for buff so here is the trio farming.





Right after the food pack is filled. The Golden bat is nearby so I go for the kill.


But honestly his stomping is annoying haha. it made me stunned a lot.



After the Golden Bat is terminated it only dropped 1 key. Gosh I need 4 so I checked at other channels and got 1 too. The 3rd channel is empty so The purpose of going to the Mine passage is defeated for now. Better try again next time^^

Frost's Final Raids

I managed to went on two raids before the new patch arrive. Frost made a nice farewell pawning at these raids and served as a good mob killer at Holy Water Chamber. Here are some stills. Right now I'm still learning how to make a good screenshot in motion. Just like getting still photos from movies hehe.

Arsene Circus Raid

Pawning his Doppleganger^^




At last at the Final Room



Holy Water Chamber Raid

Since I'm so scared of doing HW (due to so many mobs that can kill me if I can't kill them first) and all is in rush, I just took 2 pix here T_T But its good because Ortega got his cameo for a bit.



This ends Frost's last few raids with my family. If the upcoming patch will allow the change instantly Bye Bye Frost T_T
