    5th Anniversary Event

    17th August ~ 14th September

    Event Milestone Page

    Welcome to the 5th Ephinea Anniversary Event!

    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:

    - 4th Anniv. Badges have been replaced by 5th Anniv. Badges.
    - Anniv. Badges from 3rd year and older 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.

    Event Milestones*

    Event Milestone Page

    During this event, all kills made in the "Maximum Attack E" quest series will be tallied up and added to a cumulative kill counter. 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 "4th Anniv. Badges" from last year's event, you may trade them for "5th 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.

    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.

    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 = Cat Ears

    Currency: Silver

    1 = Def Material
    1 = Evade Material
    1 = Power Material
    1 = Mind Material
    2 = HP Material
    3 = TP Material
    5 = Luck Material

    85 = 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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Sodaboy for coding the event.
    cameron- for reward gate suggestions and changes.
    Matt for creating the Maximum Attack E quests.
    Kanashimi for building the Anniversary Shop while watching shitty dubbed anime.
    Ryan for concept planning, testing, and something something Sonic Mania.
    anime for concept planning.
    CARNAGE for concept planning.
    Agastya for concept planning and putting the fear of God into the team.

    For completionists wondering what items seem to be available exclusively through events:
    Purchase
    Butterfly Net
    Bamboo Spear

    Gamble (Thief)
    Hunter's Shell
    Purchase
    Chameleon Scythe
    Purchase
    Pioneer Parts
    Heart of YN-0117
    Stealth Kit

    Gamble (Hunter)
    Crazy Tune
    Toy Hammer
    Harisen Battle Fan
    Samba Maracas
    Game Magazine

    We probably should also have a listing of comparative values of the items on sale - for example, the item ticket costs effectively 1 gold badge, but is usually sold on the market for 2 PD's, while photon crystals are also valued at 1 gold badge but are usually considered equivalent to 1 PD. This means item tickets theoretically give twice the value in PD's. I might work on this list later if I have time.

    If I am wrong on anything here feel free to tell me how wrong I am.

    Question about the Double Meseta increase milestone reward from last year which I assume is in this year aswell. This applied to quests correct? and were they only applying to MAE?

    It doesn't apply to quest reward meseta, just dropped meseta, and all content benefits from it.

    So I've got a bug with the Silver Badge Shop NPC where choosing the "Never mind" option at the bottom made the NPC ask if this was the item I wanted, instead of letting me out of the shop. Choosing yes used up one Bronze Badge and got me this : upload_2020-8-17_23-4-40.png
    Oh, and I still couldn't get out of the Silver Badge Shop. I had to Alt+Backspace to escape.

    Found another bug with the Gold Badge Shop NPC where the Photon Crystal doesn't costs 1 Gold Badge. I had one in my inventory and tried trading it for one crystal, but the NPC said I'm a bit short and he can't give me this item.

    Update: Somewhat related to this bug but when asking for the Photon Crystal from the Gold Shop, the Silver Badge Shop NPC talks in his place? [​IMG]

    Also this : [​IMG]
    Guess the badge prices weren't updated for this year's event. Needs much fixing, yo.

    Thanks for the reports, BlueBolt.

    I've fixed the issues with the badge shop NPCs across all ships. Reload the quest and you should see them behaving correctly now.

    Uh, woops, accidentally started maintenance 5 minutes early. Really sorry about that.

    Seriously, not even trying to be sarcastic or funny. That was a huge accident. (Trying to juggle RL work and server work at the same time. I'm working on two monitors but typed the start maintenance command on one screen+keyboard, waiting for me to hit enter, but I was looking at the other screen and hovering over the wrong keyboard. Damn it.)

    Oh well, all I can say is I apologize.

    OK, the ships are back up.

    The bug with challenge and battle mode dropping badges has been fixed.

    Also, you can no longer exploit scared rappies for easy badges. (This was the big reason I took the ships down.)

    I apologize for the bugs in the first place.

    Some things got shuffled around this year, not just related to the event, but in the ship code where I put event stuff.

    I moved things around for the scavenger room wide drop, but it accidentally had this event badge dropping room wide too.

    When I fixed that, some other checks for challenge, battle, and rappies were underneath and not in the same place as the old placement for some rolls, so that is what caused the scared rappy badge bug.

    The quest NPC thing, well, that wasn't my fault DIRECTLY, but it should have been properly checked by the team before being updated.

    We can only apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    Thanks for understanding!

    Exactly, it was great. Too bad nice events mostly are exactly at the times i cannot play for a longer period :p
    Looking forward to the next nice events, mini-events, quests-additions. You are doing a great work, keeping this game alive.
