Maintenance concluded for September 10th, 2018

Maintenance has concluded for September 10th, 2018. The following changes were made to the server:

- The 3rd Anniversary Event has ended. The event shop is still accessible for you to trade your badges.
- Hunter's Boost Road has been changed to Endless Nighmare #4, Phantasmal World #3 and War of Limits #4.
- The ephinea.dll was updated, with no version number change, to fix a problem with loading malformed PAC files. This fix was already done for the past 3 months but forgot to update the DLL. (Apologies!)

For those who get a DLL error, can't connect to the server or other oddities, make sure you whitelist or add an exception for the Ephinea folder in your antivirus.

Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

Server maintenance concluded for September 2nd, 2018

Maintenance has concluded for September 2nd, 2018.

The following changes were made to the server:

- Reaching level 200 in Sandbox mode will no longer trigger the level 200 server banner.
- 3rd anniversary rewards will be passed out immediately upon return to the lobby.
If your character bank is full and cannot receive a reward, just clear up some space in your bank and return to the lobby. (The server will try to give you 20 Event Eggs for the 8,000 kill gate, so you'll need 79 Event Eggs or less in your bank.)
- The 3rd anniversary event has been extended to September 10th.
After September 4th, 2018 00:00 UTC, only Ultimate mode kills will count to the overall monster count and kill gates.
- Corrected 2 million reward on the 3rd anniversary event rewards page.
It was actually a 25% badge rate increase, not 50%.
- Fixed bug with S-Rank trading using the trade window. (Thanks, Soly!)

Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

New Facebook Page

Hi guys.

As the last Ephinea Facebook page was hijacked, a new one has been made by [USER=2060]@Cassie 9[/USER]. You may find it here:

There is also a link on the website under "Community".

As the Facebook was popular amongst many users, we didn't want to have to throw it away, so here's to a new and improved page!

Thanks for playing on Ephinea.
