Asoka

Well, the sales have come and gone. All 500 packages appear to have been sold. All 250 packages being sold on the first day were sold out in 10mins! That approximately $21,000 in 10mins. I wish my bank statements would show that, haha. The next set of 250 sold out as well, but I am not sure how long it took since I was at work during this sale; the second day was aimed towards our wonderful EU community. Although several people did have difficulties purchasing the package, I think the overall feeling is that the sale was a success.
All that remains now is for G1 to complete their account inspections before injecting the rest of the package. I sure hope this goes smoothly. They are doing this inspection to ensure that multiple Asoka cards can not be attained via this Limited Edition package. Basically, one LE per gaming account. As Raiden himself stated; "We are currently in the process of eliminating fraud and multiple purchases." If all goes well, the injections should be sometime next week.

I unfortunately will not be in town for the injections if they do occur next week. As stated in an earlier entry, I'll be at an archaeological conference presenting to a bunch old men in beards wearing an authoritative gut. Scary, I know...I'd rather stay home and play Sword2!

Anyway, I managed to chip, upgrade and fully socket the Eye of Veilant greatsword. I am currently working on a constellation greatsword. I only crafted it yesterday and tossed in 50 chips. Nothing so far. I'll post mods of both weapons when I complete the constellation greatsword. It'll probably be over a week due to....above :) Also, I am wondering how to acquire the Kurenai greatsword. It is my personal belief that Asoka will only be complete wielding this 2-handed beast. Her Sect of Moonlight stance is now available for 1mil FESO as a result of the last CS and FS update.

Till later
Peace

Conglomerate Entry

Happy Tuesday :)

Man, it's hard coming up with relevant titles for entries...Anywayz, as the title suggest, this entry will be a mixture of various [insert word].

First off, Asoka! I for one am super excited about her sale. I sure hope to get my paws on one. She was initially aimed to go on sale last week Thursday, however, due to certain crucial issues, the sale was postponed till Thursday, this week. I know, I know...I was somewhat disappointed at her price when first announced. But when Neume stated their reasoning behind it, I accepted and was willing to spend the bling for it. The package is much sweeter now due to various suggestions given by the community; glad G1 took those to heart. Yes, I would have bought the package even if the deal did not get sweeten if you are wondering. In preparation for Asoka, I acquired two(2) Sect of Moonlight rings; her expert stance. I also crafted a few swords, one of them includes the powerful greatsword, Eye of Veilant. It has yet to be completed, but rest assured, it will be :)

Secondly, Raiden as announced there will be updates to the Bazaar today during maintenance. The removal of pets and other products are in order. There are speculations as to the addition of new CS boxes. We will have to wait till after maintenance for any certainty.

Thirdly, I start my summer full time job tomorrow; 8:30am till 4pm. But because the archaeological site is on the outskirts of town, I'll have to be up earlier meaning early bed time...Bye bye TA and late night CM runs. Guess that means I'll be less active starting tomorrow. Oh, and I get to go to Halifax next week for 5 days. Fancy that eh...I hope to catch some whales during my short stay at the east coast, hehe.

Lastly, I have been trying to level Valeria, Torsche and Calypso in Murky Underground Caves but for some reason, they all keep on dying. No...I am not poorly equipped...+7 LN 3dr for everyone, one would think that would be enough to keep them alive. On top of this, I keep on getting disconnected over night, it's staying to annoy me.

PS: The status of my broken armour is still at "info received." It has been at this status for over a week now.

Rant


Hello,

I just wanted to rant a little bit.

While attempting to upgrade my Elite Arcanero Plate yesterday, I ended up breaking it from +5 to +6. Here is what happened as I saw it and still see it; using whatever gold I had, I proceeded to buying one(1)+5 expert lacq and forty(40) Upgrade Accelerators(UAs). Due the intense lag the server was experiencing yesterday, I did not receive these items. I did however lose gold, and the system log said I received them. I thus proceeded to upgrade the armour, and without checking(my bad on this one), I clicked the upgrade button and bam, bye bye Elite Arcanero Plate. Bleeding lag I tell ya...sucks the life right out of ya. Well, I did submit a ticket, the current status is "info received." I hope a conclusion reached soon, for I would like to know if I have to craft a while new armour(yea, I know eh) or if I can use those resources to further advance.

On a different matter, I just got back home from eating out for lunch, and doing some shopping for a Conference I will be attending down in Halifax. I decided to log on the Sword 2 forum and found the updated thread to the Asoka Limited Edition Package. The package is priced at $85.00US! Like, bleeding hell man. It would be nice if there was an explanation as to why this package is price so high. I do have more to say, but I'll end it there.

Lastly, I have been regularly screening the MM for Artisan gear(necklace, earrings, belts, etc.). Recently, people have been over pricing the recipes! Example, on the server I play on, Orpesia, artisan earing recipes sell for 90-100mil; they are currently on MM for 250mil+. The same goes for artisan metal belt recipe, they are or were priced at 70-100mil; currently on MM for 300mil+. Common people, let's stop with the greed please...or at the very least think before you price items. Thank you :)

Well, that's it for the rant. For the next post, I plan on just updating on my progress with Valeria, Torsche and Calypso.

Peace
