Egg Rates have been doubled!

Just because I'm feeling nice, egg rates have been doubled once again until the end of the event!

If you're still pining for some egg drops, now is the perfect time to do it before eggs are gone until next year. If you're a new player, now is also the perfect time to get started, as we have 2x EXP until the end of the week and event egg drops to help pad out your bank a little.

Hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea. :wacko:

Double Egg Rate Officially Ended

The 2x Event Egg rate has officially ended. Egg drop rates are back to default.

We hope you enjoyed the rate boost and hope to continue enjoying the Easter Event and your time on Ephinea.

Happy hunting!

Double Eggs Ending Tomorrow (11:00 UTC)

Just a short notice that the 2x Egg drop rate for Easter will be ending tomorrow (18th April) at 11:00 UTC. The 15% gamble rate for the 10 egg gamble is staying, also.

A server restart will be required, so the server will go down for roughly 5 minutes. Sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Don't forget that the event is still running until April 30th, so if you still need some eggs, you still have quite a while to farm for them.

We hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Easter Weekend Update (Double Egg Drops!)

Evening folks, here's the details for the Easter Weekend update:

- Event Egg drop rates have been doubled until sometime on Tuesday.
- 10 Egg Gamble list has had its success rate boosted to 15%.
- Gamble list has been revealed in the Easter Event thread! (you might still see ???s if you look immediately after this post)

Oh, I've also decided that the ship US/Auldrant will always have its ship event set to 0, meaning that Love Rappies are huntable all year round on that ship if you need anything from them.

Have a great Easter Weekend!

Episode 2 Drop Tables and Player Blacklist

There's currently a poll/discussion on the forums regarding a proposed rebalance of the Episode 2 drop tables. Further details and the vote may be found in this thread, we would appreciate input from as many Ephinea players as possible!

https://www.pioneer2.net/community/threads/episode-2-drop-tables.5824

Furthermore, a unitxt update has been pushed through to emphasise the current player block functions.

You'll find the "Block Sender" in the Guild Card menu has been changed to "Blacklist Functions", and here you can blacklist any player to:

- Ban them from joining any game you are leading (they can still join games you are in if you are not the game leader).
- Block any incoming mails from them.
- Hide their speech in the lobby and game.

The flavour text while highlighting "Blacklist Functions" has also been changed to explain this ingame.

While these features have been here since 2015 (or early 2016), the ingame text was not updated to reflect these changes so many players were not aware of it, so hopefully they are now.

Please note that you cannot block any moderators (people with cyan names) using this feature.

I would also like to note that harassment is a punishable offence, so if you believe that another player is toeing the line, it is advisable to report them to the moderation before blacklisting these players, as players who go around constantly harassing various people are not welcome here.

That's all for now, enjoy playing on Ephinea and get ready for the Easter Weekend! :o
