4th Anniversary Event 2nd August ~ 6th September Event Milestone Page Welcome to the 4th Ephinea Anniversary Event! (日本語はこちら→リンク) Spoiler: Changes from 3rd Anniversary If you're a veteran, you'll already know what this event is all about, and to save you trawling through the thread, here's all the changes this year: - 3rd Anniv. Badges have been replaced by 4th Anniv. Badges. - 2nd and 1st Anniv. Badges are now useless. - The Hunter now only provides joke items. - The shops have been adjusted in price and item list. - Only Ultimate mode kills for the entire event. - Rotating weekly boost system is disabled, but all rotating boosts are enabled from the beginning of the event. What's the Anniversary Event? The Anniversary Event is an event which features badge currency drops and a set of exclusive limited-time quests, known as Maximum Attack E. During the course of this event, you will be able to find four different types of badges: Bronze (All Difficulties) Silver (Very Hard and Ultimate) Gold (Ultimate Only) Platinum (Ultimate Only, extremely rare) The higher the difficulty, the more common the badge drops. These badges will drop anywhere, they are not exclusive to the event quest series. All badge drops will also be independent of any drop rate modifications. This means you will find badges at the same rate regardless of the amount of players you are playing with. Note that badges cannot drop from rappies that are scared instead of killed. You'll be able to spend these badges in the "Anniversary Event Shop" under Episode 1 at various NPCs. Note that: 10 Bronze = 1 Silver 10 Silver = 1 Gold Maximum Attack E Maximum Attack E are this event's designated quest series. They are featured in the Hunter's Boost Road and are also the only way to increase the cumulative kill counter, other than Christmas Fiasco. Each quest is designed to last 5-10 minutes, and cannot be failed, meaning all players will be able to participate. The quest list is as follows: Maximum Attack E: Forest Maximum Attack E: Caves Maximum Attack E: Mines Maximum Attack E: Ruins Maximum Attack E: Temple Maximum Attack E: Spaceship Maximum Attack E: CCA Maximum Attack E: Seabed Maximum Attack E: Tower Maximum Attack E: Crater Maximum Attack E: Desert Note that each quest features a timer. This timer doesn't have any purpose and is simply for players who like to see how fast they're going. The timer will also freeze at the end of the quest, so players don't have to rush to press their printscreen button.

Make certain goals to unlock items, quests and boosts for everyone to enjoy. Any boosts applied will function everywhere, not only in the event quests. Also... ONLY ULTIMATE MODE KILLS COUNT. If you wish to see your personal kill counter, talk to the Guide in the Anniversary Badge Shop. * For the duration of this event, the rotating boost system has been disabled, but all rotating boosts are enabled simultaneously from the get go. Anniversary Shop Quest Normal → Episode 1 → Shop Note: If you have any "3rd Anniv. Badges" from last year's event, you may trade them for "4th Anniv. Badges" at a reduced rate (3 to 1). If you manage to find or earn badges on your travels and hunts, you may trade them for various goodies in the Anniversary Shop Quest. There are a total of 9 NPCs to do trades with, and they all take various badges for their services. Check under the spoiler if you're interested in the shop list. Spoiler: Anniversary Shop Details In the Anniversary Shop, there are nine NPCs who would love to do business with you and your badges. The Bronze, Silver and Gold Badge Shops Location: The plaza next to the bank Each of these shop attendants will trade flat item rewards for badges. Spoiler: Bronze Badge Shop Currency: Bronze 1 - Music Disk (Random) 1 = Trigrinder 5 = Soul Eater 5 = Suppressed Gun 5 = Technical Crozier 8 = Addslot 20 = Butterfly Net 20 = Bamboo Spear 50 = Chu Chu Fever 50 = Bunny Ears 50 = Cat Ears Spoiler: Silver Badge Shop Currency: Silver 1 = Def Material 1 = Evade Material 1 = Power Material 1 = Mind Material 2 = HP Material 3 = TP Material 5 = Luck Material 8 = Broom 8 = Chameleon Scythe 8 = Wok of Akiko's Shop 10 = Item Ticket 10 = Photon Crystal Spoiler: Gold Badge Shop Currency: Gold 1 = Imperial Pick (random stats) 1 = Red Mechgun (random stats) 1 = Windmill (random stats) 6 = Parasitic Cell Type D 6 = Flame Garment (220 DFP, 120 EVP) 6 = Electro Frame (220 DFP, 120 EVP) 8 = Aura Field (250 DFP, 140 EVP) 5 = Pioneer Parts 5 = Heart of YN-0117 5 = Stealth Kit 50 = Photon Booster 50 = Magic Rock "Heart Key" 99 = Photon Sphere The Hunter from Ragol Location: Tyrell's Office The Hunter can be a little rough around the edges, but you can't argue with his stock. If you bring him Gold Badges, you can trade him for one of his weapons. If you're lucky, you might get one with Hit. All weapons will cost 1 Gold Badges. The Hunter is sick of properly tekking items for you, so you can buy a random untekked weapon for 1 Gold Badge. They can potentially have higher percentages, but you don't get to choose which weapon you'll get. Spoiler: The Hunter Currency: Gold Daisy Chain Nice Shot Hammer Crazy Tune Toy Hammer Harisen Battle Fan Akiko's Cleaver Samba Maracas Rocket Punch Le Cogneur Lollipop Flower Cane Syringe Game Magazine The Scavenger from Ragol Location: Next to the bank The Scavenger loves three things: himself, his operation, and Silver Badges. This greedy snake will happily take your Silvers in exchange for random common weapons with random specials. He won't let you choose the type or special, but you can choose the color tier. These weapons come with, at minimum, 50 hit, and no other percentages. He has expanded the scope of his looting, and now includes Yellow tier weapons in his trade. But be warned: the higher the color quality, the lower your chances of finding a weapon with 55 or 60 hit will be. Conversely, compared to last year, it will be significantly easier to find those hit values on Green and Blue weapons. Spoiler: The Scavenger Currency: Silver All weapons cost 1 Silver Badge. Color selection: Green, Blue, Purple, Red, Yellow Weapon types: Saber, Handgun, Dagger, Rifle, Slicer, Shot, Partisan, Mechgun Special types: Berserk, Spirit, Charge, Gush, Geist, Arrest, Chaos, Demon's, Hell Hit Rates (55H/60H) Green: 60%/30% Blue: 40%/20% Purple: 20%/10% Red: 10%/5% Yellow: 4%/1% The Thief from Ragol Location: Medical Center Back from her misadventure in Caves, the Thief will let you gamble your Bronze Badges for exotic prizes. Her selection of items consists mostly of those available from Coren; those who trade with her may find a variety of units, armors and shields, most of which are aimed to help newer players. While she hasn't changed her stock since last year, she seems to be bothered by something... Spoiler: The Thief Currency: Bronze Common Rewards: Monomate Monofluid Antidote Antiparalysis Uncommon Rewards: Cure/Poison Cure/Paralysis Cure/Slow Cure/Confuse Cure/Freeze Cure/Shock Hero/Ability HP/Revival TP/Revival PB/Create Hero/Ability Devil/Technique Devil/Battle Three Seals Tablet Rare Rewards: Raikiri Invisible Guard Sacred Guard S-Parts ver2.01 Honeycomb Reflector Hunter's Shell The Chef from Ragol Location: Medical Center The first of the two newcomers; the Chef is an artisan who, contrary to the other NPCs in the shop, does not accept badges for her services. Instead, she's the one offering the badges to those who can help her. In need of supplies to cook her bizarre meals, but not willing to go to collect them herself, the Chef offers badges in exchange for Enemy Parts. Got a couple hundred Rappy wings sitting around? Bring them to the Chef and she'll buy each one. The harder it is to acquire the resource, the more she'll pay for it. Spoiler: The Chef Currency: None Applicable items: Booma's Right Arm Gobooma's Right Arm Gigobooma's Right Arm Rappy's Wing Grass Assassin's Arms S-beat's Arms Hildebear's Head Hildeblue's Head Delsaber's Left Arm Delsaber's Right Arm P-arm's Arms Sinow Berill's Arms Belra's Right Arm Dragon's Claw S-red's Arms Parts of Baranz Bringer's Right Arm Sorcerer's Right Arm Gi Gue's body De Rol Le Shell Cladding of Epsilon Note: pieces of equipment made using these items are not applicable. The Badger Location: Outside the teleporter to Tyrell's Office The second newcomer, the Badger, was there all along. He used to hang around the bank, waiting for his friends to show up. They never did. Now he expects you to be his friend. Good luck with that. He's not without a purpose, however. Instead of trading up badges through the Badge Shops, the Badger will provide that service for you. He's just that nice of a guy. If you bring him 10 Bronzes, he'll give you 1 Silver, and if you bring him 10 Silvers, he'll give you 1 Gold. The Badger also offers a service to trade your old badges for the new badges, at a rate of 3 to 1. Don't tell the Guide though. The Guide Location: Hunter's Guild The Guide makes her return from last year, providing some insight into the event to players who ask. If looking up this thread every time seems tedious, seek out the Guide instead. Like last year, the Guide is also in charge of handing out the grand prize for players who find the coveted Platinum Badge. Spoiler: The Guide Currency: Platinum 1 = Lavis Cannon 1 = Sealed J-Sword 1 = Heaven Punisher 1 = Handgun: Guld 1 = Psycho Wand 1 = Prophets of Motav All weapons come with 0% in every category. Spoiler: Credits While this particular year's event was not worked on by many people, it's still made from the hard work of the numerous people who put their work into it last year, so it would be rude not to credit them still!
