Bye, Dragon Nest SEA. Hello again FFXIV: ARR.

As mentioned in the Collection Titles Masterlist, I have stopped playing Dragon Nest SEA since the start of the year and am unlikely to pick it up again for a while, especially since I’m now totally absorbed in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

There are quite a number of reasons for this, and I would rather not get into details with them all. Except that a friend whom I befriended because of DN once commented amidst a discussion that Dragon Nest is not the type of game for me. I was a little offended then, but now, I realize that he is right.

I am a casual player who plays only within a small social circle, a quester, explorer and a collector. I can’t care less about bragging rights, squeezing out the most damage or playing the best DPS class. DN’s gameplay is exciting and different from MMOs I used to play, and that attracted me. However, it lacked far too many things that I need in order to enjoy myself thoroughly. And all that, I found in FFXIV:ARR.

TL:DR version: I have found a game that suits me better, so its world is where I have gone and will be staying for a long time.

As such, I will not be making new Collection Title guides or updating the existing ones. I may still share any interesting stuff related to Dragon Nest that I come across, but probably not a lot of those either.

Those interested in playing with me in FFXIV, come find me~! I’m playing in Hades server (JP), and my character’s name is Selceriar Lunaxiel. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ใ‚ˆใ‚ใ—ใใŠ้ก˜ใ„ใ—ใพใ™๏ผ

Guess who made an Assassin in Dragon Nest?

Fuwamaru-chan

How can I resist when his Japanese voice actor is none other than my favorite seiyuu, Midorikawa Hikaru? :3 Incidentally, I just named him at random and then discovered that his name “Fuwamaru” is a snack featuring a ninja in Japan. Weird sort of fate huh?

I promised an update to the Title Collection Book a while back and I apologize for still not updating yet. >_< Life has been busy, and other entertainment and games have captured what little time and attention I had to spare. I can say though, that we the raise of the level cap and a new class, I now have more reason to come back and play DN. ๐Ÿ˜€ So yeah, watch for more updates~

Oh Squall.

What are you doing with Rinoa’s skirt?

Tip for “Rule Abiding Title” in DN SEA

Just sharing a link first before I misplace it again. It’s a valuable tip for all title hunters. ๐Ÿ˜€

Notes to self about Playstation 3 backup restore

So my precious first generation 60GB backward-compatible Playstation 3 got its second YLOD (Yellow Light of Doom) a few days ago and it looks like it’s dying for good. It gave us the YLODย  for the first time around less than a month ago, and we managed to revive it using this solder reflow method but it is only a temporary fix. Everything I read on the net says that even if a PS3 that has YLOD has been fixed with the better fix of solder reballing, it’s still just on life support and the second YLOD just confirmed it.

So I’m now looking for a new PS3 to replace the dying/dead one, and also searching for the best methods to get my game data and save files from the old one to the new one (especially the save data, since I don’t have Playstation Plus). There’s a few things I noticed when researching, and this blog post is actually my notes to self to see things more clearly and list the things I should do or note later.

Of course, if this posts helps more people than just me, it’s a pleasant bonus.

* Note, I don’t have those rental videos and copy-righted video downloads so there’s a lot lesser things I need to pay attention to. If you have those, read the articles/posts/guides I linked to and take note. Best to google and get your own confirmation.

Collection Title Event?! OMG!

I was wondering why my web traffic spiked by a few hundreds recently, then I saw today that there’s a new event for Dragon Nest SEA and it requires unlocking Collection Titles!

Dragon Nest SEA – [Event] Title Delights!

Firstly, I haven’t update the Masterlist since the update. >_<; I’m sorry about that, especially to those who are looking for information for the Ultimate and Biological titles. Work and my personal life has kept me way too busy. I hereby promise, I’ll post about the new Collection Titles in these few days. ๐Ÿ™‚

Secondly, I noticed one of the updates in the October patch makes things much easier for Collection Title hunters:

All Calderock Village and Saint Havenโ€™s [Abyss] dungeon mission can now be unlocked by entering the world zone (for example: Gray Ruins). Players no longer need to obtain or complete quests from Heraldry Scholar NPCs to unlock the achievements.

This essentially means that it is no longer necessary to complete the Secret of the Abyss, Birth of the Abyss quests! This is good news! It also means I need to update the title collection guides. ;_;

Holy cow, so many new Collection Titles!

And Achievement window UI renovation! Auto-roll NO! So many nice improvements!

I’m in heaven!!! <3

For the people I have made very confused, I’m talking about Dragon Nest SEA’s new patch “A Blast To The Past Of Your Dragon Nest Adventure Game Patch“. Althoughย I was inactive for a while because the new content wasn’t at all appealing to me and guild more or less mass-migrated to FFXIV (which I’ll be starting next month), the new updates caught my eyes.

Dragon Fellowship and Deceptive Stronghold sounds interesting, though the one update I’m looking forward to is the monopoly like Exploration thing. More importantly, collection titles update. *-* The collector soul in me is so excited right now. Can’t wait to check it out ingame later.

Talking Pets arrived in DN SEA!

Pets Say The Darndest Things

After the latest patch (the one that added Typhoon Kim Nest and Professor K Nest hell mode), us lucky pet owners now have talking pets! Check out the link to a forum topic where members of the community posted so many screenshots of their pets saying stuff.

My hound is a violent little thing that wants to *CRACK* monsters sometimes, and thinks of food a lot.

Dice Adventure has ended….

I posted about this some time back, and now the Tales of the World: Dice Adventure service has officially ended. ๐Ÿ™ I’m a sad panda now.

I didn’t manage to collect all the available characters via Infinite Colosseum event (in most part because I couldn’t afford time spent distracted on playing this, although it had stress relief purposes), but I did take a batch of screenshots of my favorite characters that I collected.

Think I should share them next time?

Funny thing from Avatar Star forum

Avatar Star Avatars With Bad Attitudes

So I was trying out the CBT2ย  for the new game from Cherry Credits, a cute chibi-form 3rd person shooter called ‘Avatar Star’, and had a problem which prompted me to check the Technical Issue forum of the game.

That’s where I spotted this gem of a topic. xD

On the same topic, I have some extra CBT2 keys.

CBT-T7KXW-TRJJP-T9PU6
CBT-T7L4L-JFDML-LWRM4
CBT-T7LL4-SNPW6-7JEK6
CBT-T7LRM-TFF4T-XUFCJ
CBT-T7LT5-REJSR-MP4HU

Drop me a comment if you do take one of them! ^^

No more Tales Dice Adventure

Service end for Tales of the World: Dice Adventure

I’m a sad panda now. ๐Ÿ™ I never really explored all of its content (I didn’t do Colosseum or PVP at all) but I did set my parties to do quests on a pretty regular basis for a while back (because my work got too busy).

Ah well, the end date is on 28th June 2013 midnight, Japan time, so I can still play this for around 2 months or so.

Just so sad to see another game I play end service.

DN SEA, Collection Titles Guide (part 4) ”Detective”

A new Collection Title! Title Collection Book has a new look! A dedicated section in Achievements windows! So much love for us title collectors this patch! <3 Needless to say this is my favorite part of the Kali patch. <3

(… okay, one of my few favorite parts. There are other things I like too, like the updates to Guardian Force…. But that’s not the focus now!)

Firstly, the new title!
