Ephinea's 2018 Christmas Event now live!

Kept you waiting, huh? Ephinea's 2018 Christmas event is now live!

During the Christmas event which lasts from now until January 12th, 2019, you will be able to find Christmas Presents by slaying the many creatures of Ragol.

Please note:

- Christmas Presents will drop from monsters at a 1/1500 rate on most days of the event.
- During Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, the present drop rate will increase to 1/750.
- Each Ephinea weekly boost will be doubled on most days of the event.
- During Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, every possible weekly boost will be active and doubled simultaneously.

We would also like to announce that the Christmas Fiasco quests will also be live during this event, so please enjoy them as well.

Finally, Hunter's Boost Road has also been changed to Maximum Attack E for the duration of this event. The Road will change again after the server maintenance on January 12th, 2019, and will be a Road of a shorter duration than usual ending February 2nd, 2019.

Big thanks to @Agastya and @Matt for preparing the gift list for this year.

We hope you enjoy the event and thank you for playing on Ephinea!

Update: A bug was found by @mod in regards to the English version of Gallon's Shop allowing Modifying of ES weapon and Photon Enhancing without meeting the proper requirements. This has now been fixed across all ships.

Update 2: The "Pioneer Christmas" quest has returned to the Episode 2 One Person Mode Event category.
