Granado Espada Cosplays

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

SeeMost people will probably tell you that cosplay is for the geeks and nerds, and people who have no life… I’ve seen some of the worse cosplays in my life and I regret having tainted my innocent eyes. x_x;;;

But you have to admit, when cosplay is done right, it becomes really cool… xD It ain’t no easy business to portray characters with perfect skin and bodies as well as faces!

Anyway, I came across a site that had a ton of really good Granado Espada cosplayers. I’m posting a couple of the ones I like here and you guys can check out the site by clicking on the photos. The one on the left is the one I like the most since she’s portraying Helena, one of Catherine’s dolls! You can see Catherine and Emilia on the background (there are better shots of them on the site, but I didn’t like them as much. Of course, you guys be the judge of that. xD)

Just thought I’d share this… You don’t see a lot of good cosplays everyday. Unless you have a friend like Nanao anyway… >_<;;;

Leveling Up is a Lot Harder than it Looks

Friday, September 14th, 2007

granado espada's kuassary familyI should stop playing this game soon… It’s eating up a whole lot of free time…

But when you think about it, what would you do in your free time if you didn’t play? XD I know I’m not good at arguments but leave me to my strange humor please..! XDDD

Anyway, I just realized how hard it is to level up characters… Especially in GE, where you have more then one character..! There are a lot of advantages on that, such as not needing to look for a healer to join your party, but there’s also the pain staking task of having to level up a lot, taking up a lot og grinding hours of game play…

Now that’s the boring bit of MMORPGs in general I suppose… But I surprise myself for reaching level 40+ for all 3 characters! Fighter Rukia Kuassary is the eldest at level 42, and so many different stances that I can’t even remember them all..! She’s finally learned her Heaven and Hell stance, which allows her to use a sword and gun at the same time. I think fighters are the most fun to level because they can use a variety of weapons… Gotta love her scale armor!

Renae the Healer (I call her “Healer” because I don’t like the sound of calling someone a “Scout”) is at level 41 now, and Rei, the Marionette�is at 40.

Just thinking about how much else there is to do makes me want to play again… XDDD

The Kuassary Family Guide to Catherine’s Dolls

Monday, September 10th, 2007

amethyAs much as I would love to rant about the In Game Event about Claude’s Angels to be on the time that I’m actually traveling from work to home, (Carracci 1800 SGT - 1900 SGT (GMT +8) DDDx) I guess I should just share whatever knowledge I have as a level 40 Catherine the Summoner.

Not a lot of people know this, but not all of Catherine the Summoner’s Skills (namely, her dolls) can be maxed out. I’m not sure what happens once you reach level 100, but this guide is for all the newbie Catherines out there who want to become the most powerful they can be at low levels. Please be advised, however, that you should go with what you think is right and not follow these guides to a tee. After all, this is your game, in your world. 8D

walter controlWalter, come now.
Level Up: 1 Skill Point
Recharge: 5sec / 100 SP and 1 Toolset Box consumed

Walter is the fire melee marionette that you can summon the first time you get Cath. In my opinion, this is the weakest of the five, so I would advice you to save your skill points. I raised mine until level 6, but I think he should have been only level 5…

lloyd controlLloyd, come protect me.
Level Up: 1 Skill Point
Recharge: 5sec / 150 SP and 1 Toolset Box consumed

The rifle firing marionette, Lloyd is probably the best in terms of Toolset Box and SP cost for fire power. Highly recommended to max out this doll’s level because you can summon 2 Lloyds when he reaches level 10. I maxed out mine as soon as I could.

helena controlHelena, it’s time to clean.
Level Up: 2 Skill Points
Recharge: 10sec / 200 SP and 2 Toolset Boxes consumed

The maid doll who uses a physical melee attack, Helena is probably better than Walter, but when you are running around the map, she follows you much slower than Walter or Lloyd. My Helena is at level 3 at the moment, and I’m waiting to see how many more skill points I’ll have left when Catherine’s skills have been maxed out.

sasha controlSasha, time to go to the ball.
Level Up: 2 Skill Points
Recharge: 10sec / 200 SP and 2 Toolset Boxes consumed

Sasha is the Elementalist of the five dolls who uses lightning spells. Most Cath users will tell you to max her out, but I’m a bit disappointed I did… She’s a lot weaker and more vulnerable than Lloyd because she moves slower than Lloyd does. She does have the advantage of firing long range spells, so I suppose it’s better than melee dolls.

victor controlVictor, it’s your turn.
Level Up: 3 Skill Points
Recharge: 20sec / 300 SP and 3 Toolset Boxes consumed

Probably in par with Lloyd, if not the strongest of the 5 dolls, Victor uses physical melee attacks, but he can also attack mobs all in one go whenever he charges. He’s also the largest doll you can summon (which is pretty cool, since some people tend to think you have 4 characters in your party than 3!). Currently, I’m waiting to see how far I can level him, but I might end up balancing His level with Walter’s and Helena’s due to his slow recharge time.

So there you have it! A nice list of all the dolls you can summon and some recommendations! Again, please go ahead and choose whichever dolls you want to max out and don’t feel obligated to follow this set of guidelines! Have fun playing Granado Espada! x3

Seigmund Slaying Quest

Friday, August 31st, 2007

bernelliIt seems Mistress Hrin has taken an interest in bloggers, and is awarding an unannounced number of lucky GE players in-game items just for blogging about GE..!

Oh dear gracious…. Must blog more! -_-;;; I really want some Divine Angel Wings for my dear Rei Kuassary (Catherine)! Then again… I think I would prefer to have it for my Rukia (fighter)…

Anyway… I was curious about the Seigmund Slaying Quest for a while now… I took a painstaking chance at grabbing 16 vouchers in the Al Quelt Moreza, and submitted it to the stone memorial. I never got my reward and thought it was because the game was still in beta, so I decided to put the vouchers in Leonardo Express and wait for the patch to take place.

Unfortunately, I went into the GE Forums recently and found that Al Quelt Moreza needed all 22 vouchers!!! O_O;;; There was a bug alright, but it was a typo error! ZOMG!!! I have to hunt for the rest just to get the reward? T_T

The Sen Family was right to tell me not to bother with it and just get on with leveling my characters… -_-;;; I was offered an invitation to enter GodLike Faction from the Hime Family, with the firm requirement of a level 90 character..! That’s going to be hard, considering I haven’t had time to play for a while… T_T;;; It seems I am still not used to controlling Lady Rei by herself… But at least I got her dolls down to pat. >.<;;;

Oh, I was also able to get Bernelli! =D She’s the cutest NPC so far, next to Lady Rei of course..! So happy to have her in my family… I named her Rochelle, because she reminds me of a friend of mine with a similar name. ^_^

Yosh~ Off to work~~ o(^3^)o Ja~~
