    So I know that the focus of Ephinea is to give a mostly vanilla / vanilla+ experience. But it's easy to forget all of the great, more understated changes that have been made on Ephinea vs SEGA BB etc (indeed some were necessitated by a lack of data, like official Ep4 drop charts I reckon?)

    What are your favourite things about the Ephinea server, in terms of how it has been changed and altered to make for a better playing experience?

    Not on Sandbox mode idk why.
    Rabarta freezes everything here

    Apparently that's how it was before scht but it certainly shocked me when I joined

    Also seeing HP bars on enemies after nearly 10 years of guessing is cool

    HBR also provides something to do when there isn't an event active. Its also why you don't only see TTF and RT like other servers I believe. Definitely appreciate these changes

    I'm not sure what's more tedious having to wait 3 months to change your ID or making and leveling an ID change pre ID leader switch. But at least I don't have to make 6 characters

    The changes/custom features are the only reason im willing to continue on a vanilla server tbh. There's so much QOL it really is game changing in a good way. *now if only we could fix those useless 1/5108942108302134 remaining drop rates*

    Nah, it's a bug caused by improperly buffing Blizzard.

    All of this except I don't find the dmc to be that reduced. All other changes are less great.

    The correct term is Unintended Feature.

    Anyway, Seasons and Juke Box (so I'm a little sad I can't try one out while the other has more or less peaked...)

    Multiple slots for more Characters.

    Most Multi-Player Quests enabled in Solo

    The Community is a lot better and tight-knit than other PSO servers I've played on.
    The Staff here is more transparent and openly communicates with members and their concerns than any previous server. I've even just had nice chats unrelated to PSO with Matt, Anime, etc.

    I know that everytime I take a break my friends will greet me as if I never left.

    Oh, really? I'd love to hear more about this.

    I’d imagine it has to do with both Rabarta and Blizzard accessing the same float in the code.

    I didn’t even know Rabarta got buffed with the change. Suppose I will have to go back and debug it, see where the Rabarta function is and point it to a new floating point which will be a copy of the floating point before being modified.

    Correct. Gibarta, Rabarta, and Blizzard all use the same cap. You must detect the calling function and set a different cap depending on the caller in order to not buff Techniques alongside Blizzard. We already found and fixed this bug when buffing Blizzard on GC a few years ago. You end up with crazy OP Rabarta (in particular) otherwise.
