Well yeah, I didn’t forget about the blog. Just that life was being harsh haha!

But yeah. I’m back to posting tech and nerdy stuff. About my PC build, some stuff has changed to the final thing, but still on the “edge”. I got a 550Ti back on december, I’ll try to replace it with either a couple of GTX 660 or a single GTX 660Ti (since it’s cheaper than the 670 and it’s “virtually” the same thing). Having a small debate between getting an i5 3570k OR get an i7 2600 I saw on offer for less than the 3570k price. But then again, the big question: Sacrifice overclock capabilities but get 4 hyperthreaded cores (8 “cores” total), or go with quad core and OC capabilites.

Still going with 8GB of RAM (1600, not gonna go grazy with anything beyond that speed) using a Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB kit, and my current dilema: I’m going for either Gigabyte, MSI or ASUS for my motherboard, but I’m still debating which one to get.

On the Gigabyte side, one of my options is the GA-Z77X-D3H, decent entry/mid level ATX motherboard, SLI support and a good color scheme (blue/black). On the other hand, for literally no price difference, is the G1.Sniper M3. For a m-ATX, you get an onboard Creative sound card with enough power to boost your headphones to their max, net stability (sadly, not the old BIGFOOT killer NIC they used to implement on the old X58 G1 motherboards), and the best SLI config for a m-ATX board: the 2nd GPU is not placed on the 3rd slot, but the 4th.

On the MSI side, the Z77A-G45. This could be useful for a single card config (660Ti). And on ASUS side, the P8Z77-V LX.

But well, time will tell which one will be the best one for my build.


Random rant before I start writing something: There’s a golden rule with Nexon when it’s about ETAs: NEVER trust them.

And yes. Age of Battle, the third update of Chaos has been activated. What does that mean? Now you craft shoulderpads because Gallant Emblems are available. Oh, and… PvP!

Yep. After “spamming” jewellery with my Mechanic, I finally reached lv 5. It kinda helps to have 9 character slots, where 3 of those came with the account and the other 6 were free gifts from Nexon!

I just had to use 2 more characters, my ooooold Assassin and my Dual Blade, one as a pure miner and the other as a refiner (so I could split the fatigue points), and send the processed materials to my Mechanic. Now I can focus on mining so I can get that new shiny, non-repairable pickaxe and my new backpack.

And from now on, please forgive me for the lack of pictures. I’ll update this entry as soon as I can get them.

Now I think I can explain a bit more about the Mobster energy drink (Monster anyone?). Nope, it’s not “unlimited” use. That means you can drink as many as you want in one day, but it’ll dissapear from your inventory after you drink it. Weird, since it’s untradeable, making it impossible to transfer between same account characters. Also, the face accesory item you get, is class-related (I got a Shiny Black Pirate Symbol), AND limited. I can only craft 10 of those before I forget the recipe. Apart that I need more lv to use it, I’d need more Jewellery experience to craft it, because my success rate is around 30%… I won’t be crafting it until I get 100% success rate.

I’ve noticed that the new rings (HP/MP, Swift, Agile, etc) won’t get hidden potential status after you craft them. But, you can still get rare/epic/unique stats on regular stuff, like earrings (got a 2% all stats and 2% INT crystal earrings during my random crafts). Belts do have a chance to obtain hidden potential stats, but it’s kinda hard.

Also, I moved to Ludibrium, to search for my Angelic Blessing recipe (which is dropped by Master Death Teddies). I haven’t bothered moving to Free Market and look for recipes. I bet Angelic Blessing will be expensive as heck, and I could use the extra EXP from MDT (been training on Vikings).

I’m kinda excited to check Age of Battle, since every shoulder recipe requires Gallant Emblems. Now, the good question is how will players react to PvP when it arrives this Wednesday. Until I reach lv 120, I’ll be trapped in the 2nd tier. But it’s a good thing, since most of my enemies will be lv 70-100! I just hope I don’t mess around overpowered Assassins or Dual Blades…

On the good side… Since this weekend, and including the next four, there’ll be double EXP from 5pm to 7pm PST (8pm to 10pm EST). Time to get 4th job!

As we know, Chaos was released with the first of five updates: the Age of Heroes.

Yes, there’s a lot of talk about it, most of it is about the bugs that roamed freely when servers went online. (more…)

We’ve been enjoying Big Bang since it was announced on december and getting more hyped with every update since then (new exp curve, whole new race, new areas and improvements). Now it’s time to wreak some havoc and add a bit of “Chaos” on top of it.

Yes. Maplestory has announced the newest game update: Chaos . Funny to say, but as spadow said, GMS is rushing to be as close to KMS in terms of updates as possible.

Right now, Nexon is doing a poll to choose which name we’ll give to the new update. And by looking at the numbers, it’ll be the same thing that happened with Big Bang (I mean, seriously. Why don’t we call each update by their original name on every server?)

For those that though Big Bang was the biggest update out there, yeah. You’re right.

Aftershock was added today to the game servers, adding and removing some stuff.

I won’t be writing the WHOLE thing posted on nexon’s website, so I’ll just resume the patch notes. (more…)

Finally, what I’ve been waiting for since Mechanic was announced. Let’s skip the fixed bugs section and focus on the important stuff.
