Grandis in Strata Devil Fighter armour and in a Rose-like outfit drawing

Ever wondered how an RNPC looks in like Strata Devil armor?  Well I did.  Needless to say, Grandis was the first that came to my mind.
I told you I am obsessed with her.

and I drew her with Strata Devil Earrings too 

Also as mentioned before, the roses that turned into Rose the Heart and Rose the Spirit were originally intended to be used to clone Grandis.  If the experiment had been successful...?

Some Grandis and Grandice stoof

Decided to visit the Grandis NPC standing outside Lucifer Castle's basement this fine morning only to find out that the NPC is smaller than the recruit-able version.
Early GE characters usually have their NPCs bigger and taller than them.  As for the newer additions (iirc version 2.4 and up), they are around the same height.  Apparently, this is not the case for Grandis!

Playing with Anarchea¨ (Grandis) then led me on to bring out the young and old Queen of Pioneering.  If you wondered what her eye is like beneath that eye patch, here are your answers:

At this point her left eye is normal but she wears an eye patch to cover it.  Probably might have been weakened from all the battle?   But for obvious reasons it's just because her model is re-used from Grandis.  Anyway still pretty, still in good shape.

Now, examining her left eye when she's old...

It appears she genuinely lost her left eye.  It looks like it had gone blind.  However I have no idea why there are green streaks in that area...  and oddly, her right eye colour changed from blue to brown.

Whatever it is, now kiss cause' they cute.

Grandis' Fiore Rosso

Fiore Rosso, finally.  Look at those cute braids!  Utmost thanks to C who helped me to get it from an auction :*

I'm almost done in collecting all of Grandis' costumes (3/4).  One more to go!

Love. Kess.

I must say this is the first time I've gotten an elite stance early on its release (18/08/2013) into the game's content and I am quite amused myself.  I never thought that I would get it.  My Punisher was gotten 1 and a half years after its release (24/01/2012) and my Soul Bringer was gotten 2 months after its release (27/09/2012, but yeah well I got it on the first PPL release).

I don't know what actually spurred me to get Heavy Stinger and his IBR-620 - I did not have any pre-existing interest in Kess or whatsoever since the induction of the Brestia plot.  He had never appealed to me...much.  All that he projected to me was as a handsome blonde haired male character whose sole role was to achieve Brestia's independence.

Totally not interesting.    

However, when I started doing the Brestia scenario-2 and 3 quests and when more and more of his character revealed as the story unfolded, he somehow started to grow on me /blush.  It was then I started picturing him together with the massive anti-tank rifle and having seen skill animation videos of Heavy Stinger overwhelming mobs, I imagined it to be a true manifestation of power.  After recruiting him, I took a second look at the model.  Although incredibly unrealistic, Kess with his colossal rifle fits just so perfectly.  This combination outwardly makes him one of the sexiest creatures in GE~  

I didn't read up on the skill descriptions or asked for opinions on his stance.  I didn't care if it will turn out to be a bad PVP stance and if my money will be wasted.  I was dead set on getting it.  So yeah, I got it heheh.  I managed to win the IBR-620 recipe after spamming 200 Lyndon Boxes :\ and purchased the stance book from a faction mate.

Till now, I'm still beaming over my almost-completed Kess and the elation hasn't waned a single bit yet.  All that's left now is to upgrade his rifle and that can be done later.  To me, it is very enjoyable to use Kess even if all that can be done right now is to AFK with him.

No regrets.

(and of course I still love my Grandis with her Soul Bringer. the love never dies)

Speaking about... only being able to AFK.  Yes that's what it is for me now and it is why I've stopped playing World Cross PVP (last played 14/07/2013).  I'll be back!  But not soon.  

I'm not even sure if I will still have the ability to play it as well as before when I come back.

Another Grandis drawing

Drew the picture of the concept art of Grandis' new costume.
But I left out some details.  Will probably work on it another day.

Grandis Triplets

Hi~ Good afternoonnnnn~

I finally have three Grandises!  I'm so complete.  They are Anarchea¨, Astraea¨ and Achrel¨.  I managed to get the other two from the mini Bahia games shop.

Mini accomplishments

There aren't many significant accomplishments that I have achieved in Granado Espada this year.  In fact, there are only two.

The first would be:

Made it to that score a few weeks ago but unfortunately, I never managed to exceed that score in my subsequent plays. 

The second accomplishment is that I managed to solo the all of the bosses before the Queen of Valkyries in the Castilla Tower of Chaos with non-racial weapons; using Soul Bringer and Royal Guard.  I'm not really a raider so I count this as a big achievement.  

As for World Cross PVP... the pace hasn't changed much since the last amendment (nerf of Split Shooter, Enchanted Arm and some skills of Soul Bringer).  I breezed through most of my matches and as usual, will occasionally face some auto-dcs and losses.

Now I'm just checking KGE's Granado Espada homepage every two days in hopes of being able to see the game version of Grandis' new attire.

Drawing of Grandis' eye using Samsung Galaxy Note 2

I love the way Grandis' eyes are so one day I tried drawing it.  
I drew her eye using Samsung Galaxy Note 2's S Note application and here it is.

I used the pencil tool and played around with the colour palette to colour her eye.  However, the colours on the palette are limited and it is unable to produce certain shades.  Hence, this makes it difficult to obtain the colours for the skin shades.  What can be done is to manually mix the colours by overlapping one colour over another.  Then, use the colour picker to pick the mixed colour.

Grandis' hot new attire

GIVE IT TO ME NOW. NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! asdgddgfhghfjkujkyuaastohjpyuj

This.  Is what I call, Sexy, which is unlike the extensively overused female costume/armor concept designs that barely clothe the character, revealing a lot of skin and covering only the breasts and crotch.

Apparently, this June's Update (in kGE) will be the final update on the story of Orpesia.

WHICH MAKES ME THINK.  That the blonde lady in red in the Granado Espada poster was actually intended to be Kess.

Blonde curly hair, fair skinned, red outfit...

But then again, the background doesn't depict the scene in Brestia, and instead, has a closer resemblance to the Holy City of Amoria.  So maybe... just maybe, she might make her debut in that patch.

World Cross PVP Battle Arenas (Singles)

The Triple X Triple room is my favourite PVP room!  It allows for quick initiation and the duel area is not too narrow or wide, just right for PVP.  The flat and simple terrain enhances the maneuverability of characters, allows for a multidirectional input of skills and there aren't many obstacles that might obstruct some skills.  Also, the colour tone of this room is easy on the eyes.  I feel pretty comfortable fighting in this arena.

As compared to the other arenas...

Round Stadium - The area is too big for me and as the tiles are white I find it pretty glaring.
Treasure Room - Its space is bit too wide.
Gehenna Bridge - Too long and slightly narrow.  Also characters can fall off the bridge -_-
Altair Colosseum - Too narrow... one way road.
Altair of Duskfall - Fighting space is too small and squeezy.
Laboratory - The dull colours and poor lighting make me gloomy.
Silent Maze Sanctuary - Running for the Olympics.

Off topic:  I found it!  Back to the post on Soltiegus hating red haired people

This is by far the best Grandis cosplay!!  She's so beautiful and she actually looks like Grandis <3

Tumblr blog

A friend of mine asked me to create a tumblr blog so that it's easy to keep on track of updates and stuff.  So... I did.  But!  This is not a migration.  My tumblr blog will just be a picture blog of mostly GE and maybe... TERA.

Here is the link, if you're interested.

The best of Veir, for now

Lagged the whole evening today.  I regret going to WXPVP, only to meet Apocalypse, without being able to buff and move, I was tortured.

Decided to go SCR to and level, since it is the last day of the 100% exp event.

Buffs:  Principal, Shooting enhancement, Level Up buff, Hrin's buff, Call Zeppelin, Offensive Filler, Red Tiger buff

Can be better.

The better one:

Hirane and Veir

Hirane and Veir c:

Stationed here 15mins before the clock struck 12, for Veir's most anticipated stance, Royal Guard.
But something else unfortunate happened this day.
I NPCed my Elegant Rose rapier by accident; Veir's favourite weapon.
Nothing can contain his sadness.

And finally!  Puppet master.

I love Anarchea (Ah-nar-kya), my qtpie :$

It took great effort and a lot of SCs to take these screenshots because the mobs kept coming...

... while farming starfish for Heyran hehe.  The other two characters do the job while she relaxes~

And to the topic on Rose the Heart and Rose the Spirit.  If the two special roses had been destroyed as a result of the cloning failure, what experimental scaffold did Montoro use for the making of Grandis...?

Tuesday, April 23, 2013


I have an idea, but it can only be done if I had a close knit of 5 friends in GE.  Right now my friends are all scattered, not knowing each other.

The plan will be an MCC 1 PVP, something like TERA's Champion Skyring.  It will be a 3v3, with everyone bringing 1 character e.g. two bring killers and one brings a healer.  World Cross PVP mode and no potting~

So ultimate support is needed!  I suppose it will be fun...?

Soul Dew

Was cleaning my drawer when I found a disc... a very old disc - Pokemon Heroes, the most favourited Pokemon movie of mine when I was younger.  The cover of the disc was cracked because I brought it along everywhere I went.  Yes, that was how obsessed I was.  I loved Latias and Latios, I was extremely crazy over them, I had 2 Latiases and Latioses in my Emerald version (transferred one set from Sapphire and Ruby), and all of my usernames and passwords had them in it back then.  I even had sketchbooks filled with Latias and Latios art and made comics and fan fictions about them but I had lost them all )':  Oh and, one more interesting fact I forgot to add was... I also designed my room and cabinets (in my old house) based on the patterns and colour theme of Latios.

They reminded me of Ludin and Lionel.  Heh, red, blue, little sister, bigger brother, starting with L.

Rose of the Reminiscence

From the GCC presentation, they flashed a slide showing that Rose the Spirit will be an RNPC in the future!

It has been said that Duke Felipe planted  2 special roses in his garden to remind him of Grandice, for she had hair as red as rose petals.  Maybe he really did love her after all...  However, after Montoro had taken ownership of the Lucifer Castle and tampered with the roses for the cloning of Grandice, the roses metamorphosed into rose demons.  Made from the thorn of a rose, emerged Rose the Heart, and from the petal of a rose bloomed Rose the Spirit.

Also, I read somewhere that Soltiegus, the demon that takes on the form of a little girl, detests women with red hair.  Unfortunately I lost the picture stating that piece of information.  Probably Grandice has got something to do with that.  If only IMC disclosed more story on the bosses residing in the Lucifer Castle/Gardens... it will be an interesting read.

Speaking about Duke Felipe and Grandice, sometimes I wonder if Claire ever thought of tracing her origin to find out who her biological parents were... I mean it's only natural to be curious about it.  But anyway, IMC needs to weave more follow up stories on my darling Grandis too!  I would also like to know the story behind Catherine's mother.

(it's a coincidence that only Grandis and Catherine Torsche, who are my favourite characters, have their resting pose in a kneeling position)

WXPVP points deducted and 1 defeat earned even though I did not lose or DC

Auto-DCs and game-entry failures have evolved.  Now comes a scarier one and it hits you uninformed.  At least not until you re-open the WXPVP window to view your records/ join another game.

I won all my matches today and I did not experience any auto-dcs or game-entry failures.  I was shocked to see the -18pts record in my WXPVP profile page after coming out from a game where I won with a score of 3-0.  It also gave me 1 defeat.

... Sigh?

All these auto-dcs/entry-failures and this unknown loss are ruining the looks of my WXPVP profile!

Finger nails and World Cross PVP?

I don't know how much sense this makes to you but here's what I have to say - do not keep long finger nails if you wish to play well!

Recently , I have grown my nails until they are fairly long (for beauty purposes, lol) and I realized that fingers with long nails aren't able to press the keys as well as when your nails are kept short...?   Especially in times when you have a gruelling match where your fingers deftly traverse all over the keyboard, pressing one key to another in quick succession.   So naturally, the force used and the time spent to press down a key is lesser.  The problem comes when the keys are sometimes not fully pressed down with long finger nails or when two keys are pressed down together since the finger nail is long enough to reach the other.  The consequence, which is obvious enough, is having your character not executing a skill or even doing the wrong one!  Although this might be a small matter and it might or might not hinder as it varies individually, you absolutely do not want that to happen!

So... keep your nails short!  It is more hygienic too after all and I feel that guys should keep their nails short anyway.  It looks much more pleasant and neat.  As for girls, well if not planning to put on fancy polish should keep them short too.


Okay side tracking, someone sent me this picture...
A team match that I had a two months ago against a full Empire Ranked team consisting of good PVP characters such as Tora, Ion, Catherine INT, Claire, Grandis SG and even Grandis SB.  What makes it more interesting is that they had a team member with 2 Valerias, which means two mass resurrections.  One of their team member won with 10,798 points!

They even posted it on their FB... and stated my name, without addressing the other 4.  Feeling glorious huh?  But yes, you guys did a great job and kudos to the double Valeria user who managed to cast timely resurrections.

Here's mine ;_;  My team, not a full Empire Ranked team, consisting of characters less adept for PVP.   Notwithstanding the huge disadvantage , I managed to get 10,355 points.
