Ari’s End of G3 Recap
It’s been a while since a major patch from Nexon and I’ve been waiting for either houses or Iria. It’s looking more and more likely that Iria will come out on January 1st. In the meantime, I’ll recount what I’ve been doing over the past month. The main thing was handicraft training, just like last time. There’s also been a bunch of guild stuff and other achievements.
As you already know, I’ve already reached rank 6 for handicraft. The past month I’ve been working on training it to make sure that there’s a cap at rank 6 just like for Production Mastery. So there’s a lot of W22, finest bandages, looms and spinning wheels to be made.

Lots of spiders, courtesy of CCo.
Lots of nails, courtesy of… me. And the pig missile.
So after making hundreds of strings, pipes, threads, boards and dozens of boards, I’m finally done handicraft! Time to look at the skill window…
There’s no advance button! That means I’m done the trinity of dex life skills! Since I had some extra supplies lying around, I decided to make a finest leather strap spinning wheel. Funny thing is that I only failed one wooden board earlier while training this week, but I failed making the spinning wheel 3 consecutive times before successfully crafting it. Look! It’s luxurious! I intend to put this in my house when I get one.
The previous guild leader of Avalon, my friend Yoshiyuki, had a mixture of IRL issues as well computer/internet problems to deal with, so I inherited leadership of the guild from him. While it’s not something I like to do, I’m running it while he’s gone. We’ve had a guild meeting and some guild runs since then. We mainly discussed application procedures and guild meeting and guild run organization.
Rabbie normal and basic guild runs.
Ciar advanced guild run.
I’ve already written up a bit about the Thanksgiving event and addition of horses, so I’ll just add some more screenshots.
Horse train! We ran around Dunbarton a couple times. It was pretty easy to get stuck, but it’s ok since we’d teleport back to the pack within a few seconds.
Stuffing my pet herb pig full of turkeys. Look at those skinny legs!!
Fishing event in Tir pond. Lots of people fishing up bling.
Waffles guild had organized a music contest and a pet rumble event in Emain. I attended the second one and watched a few matches in between collecting webs for handicraft. It was interesting to watch, but took a while to get started.
Obviously, finishing off handicraft was the main achievement, but with life skills done for now, I had time to level up and rank up combat skills. Ciar advanced was my dungeon of choice, with about 300k+ exp per hour soloing Adv8. Even went to it immediately after rebirthing XD
After a while, got to 57 just before rebirth last Friday. I think that’s the highest I’ve gotten. I’ll be aiming for 60 this rebirth.
I was mainly working on AR and Eye of Order lately and I finished both of them recently. Next up is Mag and Sword of Order. I got Mag to r7.
While leveling, I also picked up the Range Master title to my surprise. So I thought about whether I could get the AR Master title. Then I looked at the training requirements and realized that I couldn’t find any awful monsters -_- I guess that unless I’ll be using tendering potions, I won’t be getting that title for a while.
I plan to get Magnum to r1 within 3 rebirths and Sword of Order as high as possible. I also intend to get Enchant to D, Blacksmithing to rB, Playing Instrument to rD and First Aid to rE (rD if Iria is out) in the near future for the dex. I heard that Enchant E will take some time, so I’ve made like 150-200 magic powders to prepare for it.
Odds and Ends
I ran a run through Peaca basic with Puripuri. Pretty straightforward stuff by now.
Having fun with golems in Ciar adv. Testing out my damage with pally form. I also picked up a lot of stamp items and spike enchants. Most of the stamps failed to burn off and I usually ended up forgetting about the enchants so they expired. I ran out of white LLB to enchant on, so I ended up using a normal brown LLB… and Rev managed to enchant spike on it on first try. OTL Oh, and I also accosted her into enchanting revolver on an NPC xbow before she left on vacation. I don’t expect to use it until G4 though with Nicca mods.
By the way, this isn’t the way to do Ciar adv boss room !!
Found some interesting boss pictures. Flaming golem and purple ogre warrior.
There’s been a few champions and infrablacks around now. I would’ve had mine already if I had upped Spirit instead of Eye, but I don’t care about looks, HP/MP/SP, def, prot or PD. Champions have cardboard wings, like RO pservs. Infrablacks are a little better.
By the way, I found Nemo.
See you in G4~
