Minor Update

- The PSO2 DAR values have been changed:

1P: 100% (+/-0)
2P: 80% (-2)
3P: 70% (+3)
4P: 65% (+11)

This is a permanent change to fix the issue of more players not feeling worth it.

- A bunch of fixes for the damage cancel fix code have been pushed through.
-- The Dragons should now have their HP not drop under a certain amount until they roar.
-- Enemy HP will now reset properly when all players leave the area.
-- Enemies will no longer flinch out of thin air when attacking something alone.

- You will now be able to view your personal kill count for the event by talking to the Guide in the Anniversary Badge Shop.

- The website drop charts have been updated to include the year for the Flowen's Sword, Agito and DB's Saber drops. This change should also occur on the side bar and banner scroll in game.

We hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Shop Update and Unitxt Update

EDIT: Japanese crashing issues should be fixed now. If you need a new unitxt file to stop crashing, please download it here and put it in Ephinea PSO?data?.

The following things have changed:

- The Hunter from Ragol has had his weighting for the percents on his weapons changed. You will be less likely to get very high percents from him.
- Some of the Gold shop has had its pricing changed:

  • Smartlink: 4 to 2
  • V501: 4 to 2
  • Colour Merges: 6 to 5
  • Pioneer Parts: 10 to 5
  • Heart Key: 15 to 10
  • Photon Sphere: 60 to 50

- The Unitxt has been updated so that weapons such as Flowen's Sword will now display as "Flowen's Sword (3084)" This will happen on the website later.

Small Drop Rate Changes

Some drop rates have been updated:

Very Hard

Heaven Striker Coat: 1/182 ? 1/80 from Girtablulu

Ultimate

Viridia Lame d'Argent: 1/4 ? 1/3.2 from Dorphon Eclair
Greenill V502: 1/1280 ? 1/1024 from Mericarol
Oran Daylight Scar: 1/1489 ? 1/1260 from Delsaber (E2)
Oran Slicer of Fanatic: 1/1365 ? 1/1240 from Satellite Lizard
Whitill Wedding Dress: 1/160 ? 1/787 from Sinow Berill (this was a typo I did a while ago and forgot to fix)

Hopefully this helps some of the lesser used IDs and makes some hunts more attractive.

We hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea, and are enjoying this event especially!

Preliminary Maximum Attack E Update

Hey guys, we recently updated the servers to add the framework for the Anniversary Event. We're currently testing things out to make sure they work, and should be able to launch the event fully in a few days.

However, we accidently enabled badge drops even though we shouldn't have (oops... !), but since you've been waiting so long we've decided to just let you farm them as a headstart.

You won't be able to trade them in yet, as we need to clean out some bugs with the Anniversary Shop quest, but once we're done with that you'll be able to trade them freely.

The badges that drop will be called "2nd. Anniv [Tier] Badge". Note that the Summer Badges from last year have been renamed to "1st. Anniv [Tier] Badge."

In other news:

- Blacklist text strings were re-updated, they accidently got lost in an update a bit back.
- The quest Military Strikes Back now has a grace period of 2 deaths to be able to access Temple. As long as you die less than 3 times combined, you'll be able to access it.
- TA Reward Shop is back up for a week. If you have unclaimed rewards, get them now.

Sorry for keeping you waiting!
