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).

Server back up.

Earlier today, the server was down for a bit due to a failed SSD at the data center. This caused the VM that hosts the server to be "stopped".

However, we are still experiencing I/O issues and are working on resolving them ASAP. I estimate the server will be back up in about 30 minutes or less. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update: Server is back online after some configuration changes, updates on the host, etc. The weekly milestone kills have also been set at 100% to help you guys achieve the milestone goals for this week as compensation!

Extra Quests added to One Person

Per the poll/discussion on the forums, the following quests have been added to One Person:

  • E1: Mop-Up Series, Endless Nightmare Series and Lost Series
  • E2: Villainous Rift Series and Phantasmal World Series
  • E4: War of Limits Series and New Mop-Up Series

Note that no quests in One Person will benefit from the Hunters Boost Road nor build your points in it, you must play the multiplayer versions for that. Furthermore, the daily luck boost is reduced from 1%/3%/5% to 1%/2%/3% in One Person mode.

I've also took the chance to re-organise the quest lists a little so they're more in order, but that's just minor.

There should be no issues, but if anything goes wrong, please don't hesitate to tell a staff member.

We hope you continue enjoy playing on Ephinea!
