  1. What is going away tomorrow? The Limited quests/exp boosts? if so that will be really sad if they don’t give us a way to get to 80 still.

    1. ep 1,2,3,4,1-4 LQ and the boost will go away

      not sure if the usual LQ in Featured Quest (border breaker etc) will come back by maint done or not (but they’re essential for aura cf) along with their 100% exp boost

    2. AQs are going to be sega’s tissue for you if there isn’t an LQ availabe, especially since they’re adding new areas.

  2. It makes me sad now that the LQ is going to disappear (at least for now). Since I haven’t yet fulfilled the bonus excube requirements.

    Also, another question. Is the campaign for EP5 Story valid for one account? Or is it valid for all characters in that account? For example I have 3 chars, and I cleared all of the mentioned chapters on all of my chars. Will they be able to get it all? Or just to one account?

  3. RICARDO, what about EPPR ring? No info there but players say rip hero/eppr, and that sega would fix it in this maint

  4. Yeah cool, whatever, when are they going to make tickets account wide instead of character specific already?

    1. they already implemented it as you use 2 same tickets for all char access

      but dunno about layerwears since my male character got his female support able to access the basewear from other char (probably same type different color count as one)

  5. I just started doing collection files recently (I’m new ish and have finally gotten into decent levels). My question is whether I should try to get HFB Kamaitachi via the EQ (I can’t handle the solo training for the zombies yet) or if I should switch to working towards Evleda Bazera. If the LQ were still around, I wouldn’t be concerned about grinding the zombies enough for 6 HFB, but I’m concerned due to my only source being the EQ now if I’ll make it in time.
