A Day Off

Maintenance. A perfect way to liberate our minds from GE.

Temporarily that is.. LOL.


I was busy training my stances the past days and chit chatting with people a lot since there's no more faction chat to provide me with free entertainment once in a while. I admit the fact that I was really sad when I left Unholy. They've been my GE family for almost 2 months now (the first serious faction I got to) and I've got close friends there. But as much as I want to please everyone, it is not possible. I've reached my limits and that's it time to go.

I'm still willing to help the other guys with stuff. But returning is not a probability at the moment.


Shoutouts to good buddies beedee, crysal, friema, hudiciaro, muchachos and my soulmate desanggria. These people never left me when I was all alone after my dark hours. LOL! This shit's getting emo so Imma end it quick..


And yes! I was blogspotted!

Ironic Day

Today was one hell of a day.

After 2 months+ of being a team player, I left my faction Unholy today.

The big question playing on everyone's mind is why. But I am not disclosing any detail on what it's really about. Yeah, it is partially related to my last post but I have reasons only I can explain.

For the people in Unholy who might pass by here, I want to say thanks for the company guys. I had a great time hanging out with you. Wish you all the luck.

See you around.


While I was busy training my stab guard and illusionist (yes I know it sucks but my illusionist is only lvl 22 ATM) stances in Topolo Durga, a good friend of mine, AnkH, pm-ed me and broaded the I was blogspotted. I was like... "Uhhhh... What's that buddy?". He told me to check GE site and to my surprise, I was really blogspotted 0_0

The post featured there was the guide I made for lvl 100 mini bosses. I was happy when people made feedbacks about the entry and I was bewildered when it won me "divine angel wings" (which I dunno how to claim XD). It inspired me to make a guide for raid bosses but decided that since the servers are young yet, I might spoil the fun for the players who put effort into how to deal with "the real deals" of Granado Espada. So for those people who requested a raid boss guide, give me more time to play with them before I spill out the details :P

Again, thank you so much for those people who read my blog =]


After leaving Unholy, many were asking where I am headed.

I'm asking the same thing.

For one, I want to thank the factions who offered me invites after seeing me factionless. But with how things turned out for me lately, I think I'm better off a soloist for the time being. This way, I don't offend people that much and I don't get blamed for my "childish and foolish" actions. If I am to join a faction again, I'll be joining the one that's low profile. I'm not that type of person who holds grudges that long but I'm the type who remembers how painful it was when something hit me.

So for the meantime, no faction chat, free 3 family levels or buddies to borrow and lend stuff to.

Better off alone once more.

The Last Stand before P2P

Boss raids can really tear a faction down.

This same dilemma was what I faced yesterday when I decided to go bossing with my pals instead of the whole faction. Well for one, I was used to doing this with less people so that moves will be coordinated and yes, so that goods will be divided by less people. There was this rush of greediness in my blood we got 2 elite polearms early in the morning. Too bad, we got nothing on soloing the bosses.

But then again, I'm not that one for apologies.


Today will be the last CW before the colonies get reset. Welcome the P2P era where the strong, the rich and the meanest will thrive in. If you want to make an impact before GE goes officially underway, this is the time to do so.

I heard the Core and Reborn is coming after us. This is going to be tough.


belated happy bday to my mom!

A GE dream came true

Thought for the day:

Never give up as long as you're breathing... The winds of change could blow your way anytime. =)


A GE dream came true!

Finally got my elite plate !



I got tired with my duty in the morning that I thought I wont be able to play GE today. Good thing that my extra hours were moved to some other day. If it wasn't, I would still be drooling over some mate's elite plate mail. HEHE!

I have a feeling this post was gibberish. Bah at least I updated.. LOL!

Thoughts for the Day

I wanted my blog here to follow the footsteps of the one Gilbert Arenas and yes, it has drawn lots of attention but I got more haters than lovers. Yeah, maybe the posts are biased but it is one's right to say what he wants in his own blog. But I just realized I am no Chuck Norris so there you go! Hate posts gone.

Happy now?


Yesterday, we were able to catch gerero (finally... I missed him!) and was lucky to get another elite robe of neptune. The other day, I got elite Camisa De Soldado and it suits my claude well. I was able to enchant it with max hp +16% + the 34% gay colony boost + extra 14% hp from family level and 10% from my boots, I did something yesterday that I thought I am not capable of doing; tank gerero!

In our previous gerero raids before, I have only seen stock fighters with shield tank him mainly because they can block his damage well (by using guardian) and partly because provoke keeps the gerero from hitting other people. Me getting beefed by vladimir's dad was impromptu and I was successful in doing so. I kept its attention on my Claude by hitting it with blandir cadena non stop while keeping him on protection field with my scout just nearby spamming mass cure when gerero casts stun (which when followed by a mjolnir could kill the tanker). After 2 channels, I just learned that we could do this without a stock fighter. But with all those hungry gankers hunting down gerero (and the limited time I have because of school), I might not be seeing gerero again till before sunday's colony wars.

Too bad.. :(


Shoutouts to CrimsonCarnation, PasawayProphecy, IAMVIETNAMESE and our faction Unholy for finally being faction level 52. Welcome the new set of Royalists!

Raiding bosses with ease: Unlocked

On this edition of the my much hated blog, I am going to feature 4 mini bosses that's nice to hunt when you've just reached the lvl cap (which is 100).

"The Golden Spider"

Lago celeste has its secret well kept behind those nice waterfalls. A mini boss! As you can see on its details, it is accompanied by little spiders (lvl 90) and has the least HP of the 4 bosses I'll talk about here. The best way to kill it is by first focusing on the its little mates before soloing him. Use AOE spells to keep the little spider pigs at bay and then hit the big mama when they're all sleeping.

The spider deals splash damage on its normal attack so it is best to spread out ur characters when dealing with it. It can also burn you. Its lone skill is "power attack", where in you see a bar above his head that indicates its casting time. It is single target and is avoidable but you can spare sometime killing it by casting as spell in response to its skill. By doing so, its skilled is cancelled and you get a free hit! Wearing lvl 92 armors (or +6 84) and using 92 unique weapons (or overupgraded 84,88 weapons with atk up) will help you own this monster with ease.

SUMMARY : Golden Spider
Loc: Lago Celeste
HP: 113,978
Skills: Power Attack
Drops: 80-84 equip, 88 unique bracelets, 84 recipes, 92 uniques and 84 elites.


Beneath the creepy 2nd level of skeleton dungeon lies a mummy from the movie "The Mummy Returns" starring brendan frazier and rachel.. ohhh ok wrong info XD. Skelly dungeon's resident mini boss is a mummy that moves like a turtle but sure hits like a tiger. The best way to combat him is by spreading out ur people to avoid his painful AOE spell: disease.

Without good armors, this AOE will surely deal fatal damage to you and your party. But like the Golden Spider's power atk, it is easy to evade his skill because it has a casting time. At this point in time though, dont cast a spell to counter it but run instead! There is a possibility that you will get poisoned if he hits you with this skill. One of the best ways to kill this boss is by using protection field on who is tanking and let the rest of the party whack it.

SUMMARY : Thoracotomy
Loc: Skeleton Dungeon Level 2
HP: 134,640
Skills: Disease
Drops: 80-84 equip, 88 unique bracelets, 84 recipes, 92 uniques and 84 elites.


If you thought thoracotomy was scary, wait till you see his uncle! Yes there is a boss lurking somewhere on level 3. It is a floating skull that spews a purple thingy from its mouth that deals splash damage and just like its niece/nephew (who knows maybe thora is a female?), it could give you a poisoned status. Now the tricky part here is how do you combat it with the aggressive environment around you..

"First clear the mobs"

"Now its 1 on 1 time"

"Now finish him!"

Beating boneless would be easy given that you follow the mechanics on how to beat thora. Their only difference in my opinion is that he's harder to find then the former.

SUMMARY : Boneless
Loc: Skeleton Dungeon Level
HP: 134,640
Skills: none
Drops: 80-84 equip, 88 unique bracelets, 84 recipes, 92 uniques and 84 elites.

"Phobitan General"

Now the last bad ass I'll be discussing here is our senior Phobitan Chieftain, none other than Irawan himself! Yes, he is GE's miniboss version of Irawan. 3 lightning fast kicks (pray its not critical all the time) and you are gone. Using muay thai, this ralph macchio can finish you off before you can see him coming.

Now how to deal with this ass kicking weirdo?

Mobs in topolo durga are REAL MOBS. They come in gangs and they wont stop coming. Lots of kicks from PG and all the mobs makes us panic. Killing him without pro field is generally hard but if you can find a spot where no party is going on, then you can start hitting it. Since he wears heavy armor, skills that gives damage bonus to heavy armor (blandir cadena, fallange locura) are very useful against him. Unless you have a wizard in the team or a fatso tanker (claude, grandma) it is advised that you hunt him in numbers. I believe he is the hardest to kill of all these bosses in here.

SUMMARY : Phobitan General
Loc: Topolo Durga
HP: 134,640
Skills: Atomic Phoenix Bomber, Dragon Kick, Atomic Crazy Rush Ring
Drops: 80-84 equip, 88 unique bracelets, 84 recipes, 92 uniques, 84 elites and 5 books of martial arts, HQ gems.

I hope this mini guide can be of some help to those boss hunters out there. If you got other questions, feel free to ask me. Till next time~!

The Aftermath

Getting a colony was a dream for me. Getting 2 last week was a gift.

Now there's 4 (0_0)

This CW is one for the books as for the first time, filipino factions PasawayProphecy and Unholy (my faction) got 4 colonies each, the most in any CW in caravaggio up to date, for any pinoy guild. But this didn't come in handy.

7:30 in the evening, I was already asking my faction mates to save at rio albi, lago celeste and topolo durga. DeBeaumontt from Luminaire pm-ed me of an uprising within their faction that might lead to the final CW of the most controversial faction in our server. THEY WILL NOT HELP DEFEND THEIR COLONIES. Instead, he offered to help us get colonies from reborn. Learning the plans JustSweet, Luminaire's faction leader, I briefed our team for the final time. We attack el canon diabolica. Take it then take rio albi. Defend lago celeste and el tierra at all costs and forget about topolo durga. I also told them to standby for instructions with regards to luminaire needing help. With everyone gathered at el canon, all we needed was to wait for the start of the war.

And then came the signal.

From channel 2, we jumped to channel 1 simultaneously to attack reborn's colony in full force. 27 families were online and we were a full squad (with DeBeaumontt in it meaning 11 from unholy) started banging the guardless territory. In less than 10 minutes, we were able to take El Canon diabolica from reborn. Seeing that they are busy mauling down luminaire's colonies, we decided to push through Rio Albi. There we also met very little resistance from reborn's troops. In 20 mins, rio albi fell to the hands of the unholy ones..

But in 1 twist of fate, i was flooded by pm's from our friends.

One by one, the once proud 12 colony standpoint of Luminaire was getting demolished. Till it was down to 7 for the final 40 mins. At that point in time also, we lost our colony at el canon at the hands of its former landlord, ReBorn. Knowing that we have little time left, I directed our troops to regain el canon. Slowly but surely through all the lag, we swept our way to the colony to regain what's rightfully ours. With the help of the expensive but the ever efficient high lvl valkyries and our boss spider ambers, we regained the splitted lands. With 10 mins left in the clock, reborn gave it 1 last push but I was able to literally fend them off with non stop photon splashes and holes of darkness. With 23K hp left in our colony, the war ended.

I'll be posting the details of the drama during the CW tomorrow. I'm all banged up from the birdfalls and chain lightnings that hit my body XD

2nd Colony Wars on my first post...

Oh hi there! Welcome to my first post here on blogspot *applauds* . This blog of mine will be GE oriented so if u find GE boring, GTFO of here! Kidding haha.. Anyways, I've been blogging on tabulas for 2 years already but I stopped posting last March when I... I just felt like stopping XD I'll try my best to update this blog here once in a while.


Tonight, August 19, 2007 will only be my second time attending the colony wars. My faction, Unholy in caravaggio currently has 2 colonies (El Tierra Blanco and Lago Celeste) that we'll have to defend against 2 possible conquerors: the republican alliance of ReBorn and TheCore. This is going to be a tough CW for us considering the conditions and events that has transpired in the past weeks leading to this Sunday. What's the story behind all these fuss? That's what I ought to explain in the following posts I'll make.

If you want to witness the unfolding of the caravaggio drama, stay put here. :D
