Latest Updates -

Launcher updated

The game launcher was updated to have it's own skin and also display the news from the website.

Also, the key it uses to save your resolution has been changed to a unique one for Ephinea so as to not interfere with the settings of the "Generic" widescreen launcher. As a result, you will have to set your resolution again when launching it for the first time. Apologies for that!

Thank you for your understanding and thank you to Tofuman for doing the work to make it happen!

Transfer into Ephinea

Playing on another server but don't like the idea of starting over?

We now offer the ability to import your character into both Sandbox and Normal accounts on the Ephinea server.

You can retrieve your character file using the Character Downloader Tool. You can download this tool at http://files.pioneer2.net/character_downloader.zip

Once you have downloaded your character file, you can use the webpage at http://ephinea.pioneer2.net/transfer-to-ephinea/ to import your character file into your already existing Ephinea account.

Importing or transferring into a Sandbox account doesn't have many restrictions, but transferring into a Normal account has many.

When transferring into a Normal account:

- Your character's level will be halved.
- Your character's material use, including HP and TP materials, is reset.
- Your character's items, including those that are in the bank, are deleted.
- You will be given starting equipment relative to your level.
- Your learned technique levels will be halved.
- Your quest progress is reset.
- Your challenge data is reset.

For more information, see the Transfer to Ephinea page at http://ephinea.pioneer2.net/transfer-to-ephinea/

New Quest: Dolmolm Research

A quest created by Ulrich von Hall that was overlooked elsewhere, Dolmolm Research, has been added to Episode 2 under the Retrieval Category.

Elly needs to find a sample of Dolmolm Ink from a rare Dolmolm residing deep in the Seabed, but the enemy concentration makes it too dangerous for her to venture there herself, so she's asking you to find it. Can you make it to the special Dolmolm?

For those that have played the quest on their own servers (as the quest was posted publicly), there has been one change, which is that Seabed is now first instead of VR Temple, as otherwise the quest suffered from "MSB Syndrome", where the first area was 10x better than the later ones. You can still access the VR Temple after finishing the quest.

Enjoy!

Server rollback to 2/3/2016 23:00 UTC

We had to roll the server back due to the fixed item boxes from the posted Mines Offensive quests. I thought I removed all of the rewards from the quest before it was posted, but apparently there were a number of items inside of fixed boxes. (You could get these items 100% of the time.)

The list of items were: Nei's Claw, Brave Hammer, Justy-23ST, Frozen Shooter, Red Sword, Rocket Punch, Izmaela, Final Impact, Jizai, D-Parts ver1.01, Master Raven, Sealed J-Sword, Valkyrie, Luminous Field, Blue Barrier, Black King Bar, Zanba, and DB's Saber

As you can see, being able to get these items any time you want would cause a problem with the economy.

We usually don't have to do server roll backs here. Only ever had to do it one other time near the beginning when we added the ability to stack some items, so it's pretty rare.

That said, we do feel really bad about it and anyone who registered will have to register for the game again too.

I've since checked all the other quests added for any other fixed items and they should be good to go.

As compensation, experience rate is 3x, drop rate is up 150% and rare enemy appearance rate is doubled for 18 hours until 2/5/2016 12:00 UTC.

We hope you understand and thank you!

Maximum Attack S quest series

In addition to the quests we added yesterday, we just added the Maximum Attack S series of quests by RikaPSO to the Event categories of Episodes 1, 2 and 4.

Due to the high concentration of monsters in these quests, item drops are disabled while playing them. These quests are mostly for getting experience, though we may boost the meseta rewards from them later.

For those who just want a challenge to kill a crap ton of monsters in a certain amount of time, these quests are for you.

Enjoy!
