Part V – Age of Triumph
THE EXCLUSIVE CONTENT IS CAPTURE THE FLAG. THAT AND THE RETURN & UPGRADE OF MONSTER BOOKS AND A NEW SYSTEM – SILENT CRUSADE.
It’s a new PvP mode! But before explaining, I’ll tell you why the ‘Exclusive’ is italicized. The new Monster Book system is the exact system that JMS has, so it’s not exclusive.
This update is going to be v.1.0 in GMS! How exciting.
Capture the Flag[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NNw9PuQj4M%5D
A new mode was added to PvP called Capture the Flag:
It’s very simple, it’s just like the real Capture the Flag. There are two bases, Blue and Red:
And therefore there are two teams:
On those bases are two flags. The other team might take it!
The flag can be picked up like an item and once you pick it up, it’s yours. However, if you die with the flag in your hands, the flag will be dropped and the other team may get it and it will return to their base.
The whole point is to somehow get the flag of the opposing team and then go back to your base to score. To score, you must have your flag at your base in addition to taking the opposing team’s flag to your base. The game is pretty long if both teams are good (10~20 minutes!) so it’s not certain who might win! However, if the score is like 3-1, the game is over.
Flash Jump works so that’s kind of an unfair advantage.
Overall, I don’t like it. That might be because I didn’t like PvP in the first place (delays are way too long).
Oh and by the way you can get medals from this mode. It’s based on how many times you take down someone with the flag. The best medal is for doing it 5 times, and the medal gives you 3 on all stats.
It’s the same thing as the old one except better and more organized.
Yep, it’s organized by monsters’ levels and it looks better. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Monster Book system, you basically kill monsters to get a Monster Card:
Pick it up…
Hooray! It’s unlocked now:
Unlike the old system, you can only get 1 and you only need 1. If you click on it, you can see every info you need:
If you unlock a whole set, you get a special buff (unknown what it is yet). Sets are having a couple of cards of monsters that are somewhat related.
Also, each Monster Card will give you a certain amount of points. What are the points for? Well when you start collecting your Monster Cards you’ll get this book:
The book levels up and, if you complete the whole Monster Book, it will be +10 on all stats!
You can check out Fiel’s JMS extraction for more info on that.
The Silent Crusade is a secret group that specializes in eliminating strong monsters. You will get a serious of quests and you will be sent all over the place by Wence, the person in charge:
The quests start only at Victoria Island. You can’t join the Silent Crusade unless you talk to Wence in Victoria Island.
You will get a chain of quests.
What are they all for? Well, there are rankings in the Silent Crusade. You need to complete as many quests as possible to get to a higher ranking. The rankings are for the supply box:
This is with officer being at the lowest ranking and Grand Champion being the highest. The shop will allow you to buy stuff if and only if your ranking is the required one to purchase it:
That’s everything it sells for a large amount of mesos. 50,000,000 mesos just to get that Crusader’s Zeal Necklace.
Alrighty now for the quests, I’ll give you a quick list:
- He sends you to Perion. Rewards:
I’ll post all the equipment stats at the end… And for Crusader Coins, they are coins that you need to upgrade your medal and ranking. The amount needed will also be at the end. Next quest:
- He wants you to kill 1 Lord Skeleton, which can be found in Prohibited Area (the map all the way to the right of Perion). Go there and talk to that portal:
You will go to this map:
Talk to the girl (Sheryl) and she will want you to ‘take care of the Lord Skeleton for her.’ So do it:
Go back and you’ll get 1 Crusader Coin.
- Both Sodane and Wence will give you quest now. Sodane will tell you to kill it again if you want another coin. Wence will want you to eliminate King Clang in Warm Sand (last map of Florina Beach). So much traveling and you’ll just get another Crusader Coin…
I pretty much gave up here, LOL. You can pretty much tell what the new monsters are and equipment from Fiel’s Extractions. Go to Character -> Accessory -> Medal to see the medals or Character -> Ring to see the rings. The monsters are also there under ‘Mob.’
Well, to upgrade your medal/ranking, you’ll need the following amount of coins:
Officer -> High Officer = 10 coins.
High Officer -> Grand Officer = ?
Grand Officer -> Capatin = 50 coins.
The rest I don’t know yet, LOL.
The quests start to give you a lot of coins as you go on, though. When you’re a captain, you get around 20 coins! If you like traveling a lot, it should be easy for you.
I’ll be sure to update this when I know the missing info.
Oh and one more thing:
I don’t know what it says in Japanese… But you can view the person’s Monster Book:
That’s all, wow finally! I’ve been blogging about every update and event afterwords, so you can always look over old posts if you want to learn more.
Well, enjoy this guide!
