Update: Everything back online as of 3:03am CT.

The game server will be taken down at about 1:15am 6/20/2017, Central Time, for some OS upgrades at the data center. Estimated downtime is 30 to 90 minutes. (Can't give you a better window than that, sorry.)

Actual upgrade will occur at 1:30am and, at that time, both the game and website will be down.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.

Summer Scavenger Event and Updates

NOTE: This event is NOT the Maximum Attack Badge Event, that event is reserved for August and has been rebranded as the Anniversary Event.

From June 4 to July 2, there will be a Scavenger Event on Ephinea! Across Ragol, each Section ID will drop a "Section ID Badge" which drops from a specific enemy, and it's up to the community to find them all to trade for prizes! You can only find these badges on Ultimate, and some quests are exempt from finding the badges.

Note that the shop quest is not up yet.

You may find more information in this thread:

In other news, the following updates have been pushed:

- Bank meseta limit is 999,999,999
- Full Dressing Room is now available (but no name changes)
- Event items now show up as blue on the map instead of yellow
- The Hunters Boost Road is the "New Mop-Up Operation" series in Episode 4, with timers removed on Fodra and Lumireis.

Small Rules Update

Hi guys.

We've recently updated the rules for the forum and game server to be more clear and concise for all users. As Ephinea is growing, we're getting a much larger breadth of people and we felt it was necessary to make the rules more specific so that everyone understands what behaviour is and isn't acceptable on Ephinea.

You may find the new rules list through this link:

The rules are essentially the same as before, but I recommend giving them a read anyway. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask a member of staff for clarification.

We hope you continue to enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Malicious Uprising added to One Person

As title. The quest timers have also been relaxed in both One Person and Normal. #3, #4 and #5 have also had their enemy counts changed slightly in One Person, meaning they aren't quite as good for hunting Spigells, Dolmolms and Gibbles in solo.

Malicious Uprising #1 and #2

- 2 minutes added to the timer.

Malicious Uprising #3

- 2 minutes added to the timer.
- Sinow Spigell count decreased in One Person.

Malicious Uprising #4

- 2 minutes added to the timer.
- Dolmolm count decreased in One Person (replaced about 20 with Dolmdarls).

Malicious Uprising #5

- 5 minutes added to the timer (subject to change...)
- Gibbles count decreased in One Person (replaced with Recoboxes mostly).
