9th Anniversary of Philippine Ragnarok Online ! ! !

My little sister and I were very visible since we’re on the front row. ANG SAYAAAA!!!

I thought that we were unfortunate because we failed to acquire premium passes for Cosmania 2012. As it turned out, it was actually a blessing-in-disguise!

The 9th Anniversary of Philippine Ragnarok Online fell on the same date as Cosmania’s. Level Up Games announced that KAMIKAZEE would be performing too so I knew that I SHOULD NOT MISS IT!

I am so glad that I did what my gut told me to do. I did not regret every single second (and cent) I spent on this event!!!

Love is War

My youngest sister had been bugging me since March 2012 about a Vocaloid-themed convention which she desperately wanted to attend. She was so excited that she asked me to buy tickets a few days after pre-sold ones were available — and because of that, we officially became Guests #1 and #2!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

“Words of comfort, skillfully administered, are the oldest therapy known to man.” — Louis Nizer

These are two of my favorite teddy bears — Huggin and Thuggles. I always keep them beside my bed. Huggin is a big teddy which was a gift from my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day of 2011. “Huggin” was derived from Lots-O’-Huggin‘ BearThuggles “The Angry Teddy Bear” was a birthday present from by boyfriend in 2007. He always has that feisty look due to the overlapping fur on his eyes. ♥

Best of Animé 2011 [Day 2] . . .

I only visit conventions once in a while and I have to have a good reason before doing such.

My original plan was to meetup with a cosplay-buddy to get my commissioned items but since he had personal things to take care of then our meetup was cancelled. Still, I decided to go because I also promised my little sister that I would accompany her in looking for the manga  that she wanted. I also thought that it would be a great opportunity for me to search for Gothic pendants which are very elusive in regular stores.

MOA is a relatively large place and I don’t frequently go there so I get lost easily. It’s a good thing that I know and I had spotted the right people to follow —- the nerds! We followed their lead without them noticing and after a few minutes, we were already in front of SMX. LoL!

I was surprised that the hall was quite empty even though it’s the middle of the day. The first thing that we did was roam around and looked for manga. Unfortunately, there was none. We only found magazines, pirated DVDs and other customized memorabilia. The only booth that had manga was that of Japan Foundation. My little sister decided to stay there while I roam around some more.

The shops that had a wide variety of merchandise truly caught my attention. I bought a nice Harajuku polo from Sugarfree and Blue. I’ll wear it the next time I attend a convention. It was also nice seeing the Gothic and Lolita communities broadening in the country. I also bought a cross pendant and a customized mug.

I didn’t bother taking photos of cosplayers because they didn’t appeal much to me. I did spend time taking photographs of figma and nendroids, though.

MMORPG that I play / played ~ ~ ~ (Part 5)

Playing MMORPGs is one of my stress-relievers. I have been on hiatus for quite sometime due to my busy schedule but I still get to play once in a while.

=================================================

ஜ۩۞۩ஜ Dawn of the Enlightened Ones ஜ۩۞۩ஜ

ஜ۩۞۩ஜ Dawn of the Enlightened Ones ஜ۩۞۩ஜ

Philippine Ragnarok Online [Valkyrie Server]

One of the best-striving MMORPGs locally is pRO and I believe this is due to the game’s features and community. This is still my most favorite among the lot.

Dada and I went back when the Renewal job classes were introduced.

Leveling up was a lot easier than its glory days and we obtained the 3rd jobs in just two months! This is due to the daily quests in Alberta and the mod-EXP provided by the game publisher. I surpassed Danaera’s level in a small amount of time!

Although, i did not have as much fun as I had before. Apart from attaining the Arch Bishop class and trying out new skills, most of the stuff I found there are the same.

I decided to quit the game — again.

Arisen - Moonshadow

Allods Online [link]

Moonshadow is an Arisen Savant who can be a DPS or a Healer depending on the situation. She is always seen with her trusted pet, Hellion.

I’ve been fascinated with summoners since I was in grade school. So, when there’s an MMORPG with such class, this always becomes one of my choices (with being the Support: Cleric/Priest/Healer as the first option).

The Summoner class is versatile and is a good support character in the absence of a Healer. Since Allods’ gameplay is much like World of Warcraft‘s (wherein players are better off questing than grinding; and that quests are done alone most of the time) then I knew I should pick a character that can both do damage (when questing) and heal (when raiding).

I stopped playing because my old PC could not handle the graphics — that and the fact that the game was quite dull.

=================================================

Kindred Mage

Forsaken World [link]
.
This game is a mix of WoWRappelz and Cabal Online.
.
The graphics are awesome to behold — especially the Vampire classes. The avatars are sexy, showing plenty of skin and the costumes are very intricate. The skills are super flashy too!
.
Quests are brutally long, tedious and repetitive. The maps are so big that mounts and warps become requirements in order to jump from one place to another.
.
The pets look horrible as well.
.
I didn’t last a week in playing this game.

Eden Eternal - Shaman

Eden Eternal [link]
.
Eden Eternal is like the cute-sy version of World of Warcraft (most of the games are patterned after WoW anyway). Quests, items, equipment, achievements and instances are identical in presentation.
.
One feature of EE is the versatility of the characters. A player can change job classes whenever needed and there is no penalty in doing so.
.
My main character is a Healer, but she can turn into a Warrior or a Ranger when the situation calls for it. LoL!
.
Although, like most of the games I tried, we reached a point wherein boredom kicked in —- normally after we reached a certain level and got stuck at a dungeon.
