Ephinea Easter 2021

The Ephinea Easter event has begun! For the next four weeks, Event Eggs can drop from any slain monster and can be used in the Egg Shop quest. This quest can be found in Episode 2 under the Shop category.

The Hunter's Boost Road was also changed to the MA4R series. In case you are unfamiliar with these quests, they give you a randomized route of the available MA4 stages for the respective episode. Players can also talk to an NPC before starting the stage to select a desired route.

More details about the Easter Event and the Egg Shop can be found in this thread:

Thank you for playing on Ephinea and we hope you enjoy the event!

New Quests

Hello Hunters!

Two new quests were added to the server over the weekend!

The first quest, Twilight Sanctuary, is available under Episode 2 → Tower. This is @Sassmeister's first quest and is an impressive entry into quest development. We hope it will provide a fun challenge for a 4P group. You can find his thread to check monster counts and provide feedback here.

The second quest, This Must Be The Place, is available under Episode 1 → Retrieval. I created this quest following @Ade's script. This quest supports up to two players in the Red and Green player gem slots only. This quest has some story elements and an alternative, hidden ending after Falz. A 4P version without the story elements may be provided at a later time.

Wiki pages will be created soon for these new quests.

We hope you enjoy these quests and thank you for playing on Ephinea!

Minor Quest Update for 14th March

Hello Hunters!

Just a very quick update as some of you will have noticed the lobby change!

  • The Hunters Boost Road quests have had their timers removed on Auldrant only. These are the New Mop-Up Operation quests in Episode 4 → Extermination
  • The White Day Lobby and SEGA quest have been activated until the Easter Event, under Episode 1 Event.

For the forums specifically, I have also added the ability to add numbered lists and bullet pointed lists in the Rich Text Editor, as that feature was lost on the upgrade, and could only be done with BBCode previously.

We hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Server maintenance complete for February 28th, 2021

EDIT: Server maintenance has been completed. The Valentine's Day event is officially over.

So, the Valentine's Day event was SUPPOSED to end on the 20th, but I got tied up with some things and, yeah, it didn't end.

The event will be now ending on February 28th, 2021 at 20:00 UTC.

I've changed the lobbies to the normal event because you're all probably sick of seeing hearts in the lobby by now.

Bonus rates and the quest for Valentine's Day will stay active until the event completely ends on the 28th, though. So, take advantage of them while you can.

Cheers and thank you for playing on Ephinea!
