    Phew, creating oddity guides is quite tedious. I'll probably make one for Gloomy Ridge when I'm not busy/lazy enough to do them. If anyone else does it- kudos to you, I can sleep tight at night.


    Phillip (X: 684, Y: 345)

    - Get the camera from Phillip

    - Go to Sideralis Square (X: 244, Y: 427)

    - Use the camera (right click)

    - Go back to Phillip and return the film


    Latour (X: 710, Y: 360)

    - You'll teleport after you talk to him

    - After teleporting, approach any of the soldiers and investigate

    - If you choose the right corpse, you will get a black screen and teleport again (It's random)

    - Short conversation between Latour and Magnus will start. Just wait for it to finish


    Kermaine (X: 640, Y: 206)

    - Go near Ollie (X: 759, Y: 416) and talk to any unnamed mushroom around them

    - Take some of the mushroom and bring it to Kermaine

    - If you bit the mushroom, go back to Kermaine to transform back to normal

    - Wait for the cutscene to finish


    Lang (X: 782, Y: 466)

    - Talk to Lang to receive the Empty Bottle

    - Go to Sideralis Square (X: 130, Y: 461) and stand on the glittering area

    - Use the Empty Bottle (right click) to get the Water Bottle

    - Go back to Lang and give the water

    - Wait for the black screen and cutscene to end


    Blood Crystal (X: 125, Y: 420)

    - Defeat the Unknown Monster at X: 125, Y: 420 then talk to the Blood Crystal that will appear after

    - Wait for the cutscene to happen

    - Keep the Broken Blood Crystal in your Inventory for now


    Little Girl (X: 793, Y: 653)

    - You need her lunchbox first, it's at X: 79, Y: 41 (Go up the waterfalls)

    - Return to the Little Girl and give the lunch box to her

    - Wait for the black screen and cutscene to be over


    Mystery Man (X: 513, Y: 783)

    - You need the Broken Blood Crystal first. Finish the Blood Crystal Oddity to obtain it

    - You have two options to go from here. Give him the crystal as is for an extra cut scene but it will not complete the oddity (from my experience but you can try either way)

    - Go to Otto in who's in the Holy Shield Forest (X: 636, Y: 214) and exchange the Broken Blood Crystal with a Dim Blood Crystal

    - Go back to the mystery man and give him the Dim Blood Crystal to complete the oddity


    Francis (X: 454, Y: 763)

    - You need to gather his research notes. They're located in the following:

    - Scattered Research Notes - I (X: 687, Y: 435)

    - Scattered Research Notes - II (X: 157, Y: 299)

    - Scattered Research Notes - III (X: 525, Y: 102)

    - After gathering, right click on Research Papers - I to fuse the 3 papers to receive the Complete Forbidden Technique Paper

    - Return to Francis and talk to him. Either choice completes the oddity


    Dofoe (X: 123, Y: 655)

    - Talk to him. Choosing the first option will give you a Blood Crystal

    - Go back to town where there are bunch of soldiers like X: 683, Y: 263

    - Right click on the Blood Crystal to summon Otto

    - Wait for the cutscene to finish


    Another way of finishing the oddity for Dofoe:ekNBB2G.png

    - Choosing the second option will give you a Demon Notebook

    - You must listen to these conversations to obtain information for the notebook. You will receive a buff once you finished them

    > Marina (X: 793, Y: 544)

    > Landon (X: 579, Y: 263)

    > Sanjay (X: 484, Y: 162)

    > Thompson (X: 267, Y: 316)

    - Go back to Dofoe and hand over the notebook


    Tanar (X: 374, Y: 566)

    - Talk to Tanar and get the Flower Ring item

    - Go to Jefferson in Holy Shield Forest (X: 608, Y: 259) and give him the ring

    - Wait for the cutscene to finish

    A Quick How-To Guide for Reporting Players In-Game


    Reporting can be done in three ways:

    • Sending a Game Sage a private message
    • Sending a ticket
    • Sending a Community Manager a PM (Not recommended)


    What is a Game Sage?

    They're volunteer players who either act as community representatives or moderators for the game. Full information can be found here.


    How can I know if a Game Sage is legit?

    1. You may check the list of Game Sages through this link on the forum. This list is always updated when a new GS comes in or an old GS leaves.
    2. A Game Sage will always be on the Official Aura Kingdom Discord Servers. They will have a <GS>, <SGS> or <LGS> tag before their name and will be on top of the memberlist of Discord. They will also have the GS role on.
    3. A Game Sage can contact you using a tagged character in-game. I.e. their name will appear as <LGS>Rio in contrast to normal players who have no <> on their name.

    Why is sending a Community Manager a PM not recommended?

    CMs are very busy people because they attend to a lot of things on a daily basis. If you send your report to a CM, they may reply late or not be able to attend to you until they have free time compared to reporting through a GS.


    If you want a faster and a more responsive support, feel free to contact a GS instead. We don't forbid you from sending CMs a PM although.


    DISCLAIMER: We can only entertain player reports that happened/is happening inside the game. Any reports that involve Discord screenshots ONLY may be reported to Discord's Trust and Safety Team.


    1 - Harassment


    Harassment includes anything immoral done against you or your party. Most of the said offenses can be seen in the Terms of Service and the in-game rules. This also includes scam issues.


    If a player is harassing/scamming you in-game, make sure to remember these tips:

    1. Take a full-screen, uncropped and unedited screenshot/s containing your message exchange with the player you're reporting. We can't emphasize this enough.
    2. Be careful of what you say back to the person harassing you. Players have the right to counter-report you if you harass or threaten them.
    3. Context wins. I.e. If you're reporting someone because you harassed them first, you'd basically be reporting yourself and so on.

    When reporting scam issues, don't report a player if they simply COD'ed or sent you the incorrect item (value/amount/type/etc.).

    • Talk to them about it first since it can be just an accident or something and simply return the COD mail
    • If you somehow mess up and accepted the incorrect item, talk it out with them first
    • Only proceed to reporting if the dispute isn't settled (I.e. they blocked you or refuse to give it back, etc.)

    Most importantly, be careful and always double check everything!

    • We cannot return to you what you lost as it is the player's (your) responsibility when it comes to handling transactions
    • Your loss to scam issues is not the staff's, GSs' or the company's responsibility. Please handle transactions with care

    Important Note: A GS will NEVER agree to middle-manning trades or any kind of player transactions.

    • We are not allowed to do this nor should we allow ourselves to regardless of any kind of payment after the transaction
    • Any GS found to agree to such can be reported to the Community Managers, Senior GS or Lead GS (yours truly)
    • Always check if a GS is legit or if the GS's account is real and not fake. Fake accounts are actually made to scam players especially on Discord!

    2 - Botting


    If you feel like someone you see is botting and you wish to report them, remember to do the following:

    1. Take an unedited and uncropped video of the player in action. Make sure their name is visible in the video.
    2. If you feel like they're doing a task that needs presence yet they seem AFK (i.e. Manual Fishing, Archeology, etc.), send them a message. If possible, include this in the video.
    3. Screenshots show nothing. Screenshots won't be entertained when reporting player bots as a still image can't show how they're botting. The only exceptions are chat bots (spammers) and fishing bots (cluster bots that look the same while fishing in one single spot).

    3 - Inappropriate Names


    This one's the easiest. If you spot an inappropriate name, capture a screenshot of it and send the screenshot to a Game Sage. It doesn't matter if it's edited or cropped as it can be easily detected unlike harassment reports.


    Regarding the uncropped/unedited screenshots and videos, we know that your in-game name will be visible for us to see but don't fret, your identity will be 200% confidential and you will never be exposed to anyone, ever.


    Note: The team cannot view message logs in accordance to GDPR. This is why we ask players to send us screenshots of what happened.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Q: What happens to the people I reported?
    A: Disciplinary actions will be sanctioned accordingly.


    Q: I still see them online! Why aren't they banned?
    A: Reporting is a case-to-case basis; just because you reported them once doesn't mean they'll instantly get banned. Even in-game, chances are given to people to change but that doesn't mean your report goes unnoticed.


    Q: Okay then, won't reporting them be useless?
    A: No, your reports will count as "strikes" for disciplinary actions to happen.


    Q: I only reported someone once but they instantly got banned.

    A: Probably cuz of the following reasons:

    • It was their last strike
    • Their offense is found to be too offensive and the proof is very solid and strong

    Q: Are bans permanent?

    A: Some are, some are not.


    Q: I'm a victim of a false ban. I AM INNOCENT!

    A: Send a ban appeal through the ticket system.


    Q: I got banned! What do I do?

    A: Send a ban appeal through the ticket system.


    Q: Does this button work?

    A: No, it does not.

    Since I planned to make a guide for my SO, I should just also share it with everyone else. These are not exact coordinates but it's a rough estimate from AKDB.


    The red dots indicate where they roughly are, but I didn't include which conversations these are. There are 10 conversations per map.

    Welcome and have fun in AK!


    If you wanna hang out with us more or maybe if you need some questions needed to be answered urgently, just join our Discord server for real time chat and support.


    Tho discord is still laggy atm so...

    It won't be easy as you wish it would be. For now, that's the only way you can fix it (tho for others, it isn't even required to do those steps)

    Hi,


    You can check those options yourself.


    For Windows 7:

    1. Open Internet Explorer
    2. Click on the gear icon on the upper right (if it's present, if not skip to 3)
    3. Go to Tools
    4. Pick Internet Options
    5. Advanced
    6. Security section

    For Windows 10:

    1. Press start
    2. Type "Internet Options"
    3. Do the same above starting at step 5

    Alternatively, you can try clearing your internet option's cache and cookies too or upgrade to the latest version of internet explorer.


    Note: Must be internet explorer because that's what the game use as a medium to login.


    Thread moved to the right section (was previously in Technical Guides).

    This is the list that will serve as your Guild Directory in this forum.

    If you want your guild added, make sure you create a guild intro page then PM me the details either here on in Discord (Rio#4417).


    Note: You don't have to be a guild that's open for recruitment to make an introduction page and have your guild name on the list. You can make one even if you're a closed guild (for fun mainly!) to let others know you exist!

    Hi!


    If the money did not deduct from your account, you'll need to wait it out because you have reached the daily limit for purchases in Steam. It usually just takes a day.


    If the money did deduct but you haven't received your AP, you may send a ticket to billing about your issue with the transaction number that ate your money and email address you use on your Aeria account.

    It was really great and quite the experience working with you Sair! As much as I'd like to keep my cool (which I've been trying to do), SAIR WHY YOU LEAVE US QQ


    I've learned a lot from you as a fellow GS, then later as SGS when Nana left. We've clashed heads and opinions but for a good cause, we agreed on many things, didn't on some cases, but what can I say? Being in a team with you opened my eyes, our eyes, to some realities we need to see.

    Special shout out to the players that tried to fight the rules, how’d that go for you? Did your lawyer uncles ever contact aeria? Didn’t think so.

    Honestly the best thing I've read all day lmao 😂 but to heck, those times were funny yet sad at the same time.


    I'm wishing you all the best right now and in the future and hoping you pass everything that comes through your way! Don't forget to visit Karu and steal her posters for me too 😎 And I wish to continue seeing you again in AKUS from time to time and continue being fab enough to rekt those things we couldn't before 😉

    Dang, it's a monkaS in here.

    first floor PT VOE has the same bug as regular VOE; boss shields go down then back up within a split second. Fix when?

    Which part though? Human or Monster? It can happen to the monster one if you lure it to the pool too late and then the pool poofs, since it dissolves the shield on contact only.


    Did it take long? Heck yeah it did!

    My schedule in real life is not the best this week halpasjdlsdkflsg

    @Marsie's A Valentine's Oath







    Apologies for the delay, your entries were so amazing, funny, creepy, and just overall wonderful that it was hard to decide who the winners are! Thank you so much to everyone who participated and those who took interest in the event!


    Check out GS Dwgir's Design a Fishing Pet Event too!


    pacayey ~ Tune in next for more events to follow ~ pacaspy

    Note: Winners will be contacted in the next 12 hours here in the forum regarding the rewards.


    All participants were judged only through the given criteria above and those who violated rules had point reductions per violation.

    As in can I cut a piece from another screenshot then stick it on the final product. For example, cutting an npc from a different screenshot to paste on the final image I work on. That different screenshot won't be used as a whole in the 4koma, but only a part, and that part is the npc

    Oh, yeah that works! It's the same thing I did with the sample with Astraea's picture ^^

    Hi!

    Can I edit the main screenshot using a part of another screenshot

    I'm a bit confused by what you mean here.

    using materials from the aura kingdom database

    Sadly, image use is strictly in-game screenshots from the game only. We do not allow external images (things from AKDB is considered an external image as it is not screen-captured from the game) for various reasons :AK15:

    eqbTWDo.png


    It's the month of hearts, and what's one way to show off your Valentine's ideas? Through manga form, of course!


    gB1JhT5.png


    A yonkoma or 4-koma is a type of manga that presents four panels per comic strip that traditionally are the same size and stack on top of each other vertically. (Anime-Planet)


    The format will look like this image below: (from JapaneseWithAnime)

    Here's a sample that may help you get an idea!

    Got the gist of it? Let's head on to the event proper~


    VwQQYSa.png


    ✔ The event is open to all envoys interested whether you may be from Phoenix or Chimera

    ✔ With Valentine's coming, create a valentine-themed yonkoma manga using in-game screenshots from Aura Kingdom only

    ✔ Maximize your yonkoma with photo manipulation, and additional manga effects with any software available~

    ✔ We welcome ANY genre that's applicable for PG13 audiences! Get wild with horror, fluff, gag, angst, drama, etc., as long as it's related to Valentine's Day!

    Only in image format posted here, in the forums, will be entertained!

    Make a forum thread in the Fanarts Section showcasing your work and only reply your thread’s link on this post

    ✔ The deadline will be on February 15, 2019 - 11:59 PM EST


    jb5ntz2.png


    ✘ Only one 4-strip panel will be allowed. The only exceptions are if you're gonna be doing the same sample format as I've made above, and if you're gonna use different formats of yonkoma, but it has to be vertical panels only

    ✘ You cannot use any other 3D rendering software to manipulate a 3D model from Aura Kingdom (i.e. MikuMikuDance, Blender, XNALara, etc.)

    ✘ Rewards are not to be gifted to another pair of players

    ✔ There’s no maximum limit to how many screenshots you can use, so get wild!

    ✔ If you edit your guide after the deadline, it will result to minus points on your score card!

    ✔ Follow the Aeria Games-Gamigo Group's Terms of Service. If you don't, you'll be disqualified

    ✔ Posting your IGN and server on your thread is optional. Otherwise, if you don't post it and you've been chosen as a winner, we will contact you through forum messaging regarding those details

    Important: Due to past incidents and issues, only MY SIDE of the forum time will be considered. Any kind of intervention saying that the timing is incorrect will not be entertained

    ✔ Questions? Feel free to ask below or send me a DM on Discord @Rio#4417

    Hey there!


    We're introducing the ban appeal form for those who wish to have a legitimate second chance to be part of the AKUS Discord. Share the form to people you know that got permanently banned or muted and make sure to read the text on the form.


    Form Link: https://goo.gl/forms/k0rDEcfM4azwRwc52


    NOTE #1:

    This only applies to people who were PERMANENTLY banned or muted. Timed bans and mutes will not be entertained. If you're unsure whether your mute or ban is permanent, you may contact one of the Game Sages in Discord, in-game or in the forums.


    NOTE #2:

    This is NOT a ban appeal form for in-game bans or mutes. Please send a ticket and contact the team via the following link for such issues: https://support.gamigo.com/index.php?/english/Tickets/Submit

    Yeah those reaction points are the places where you can possibly get the Lost Locket. It's really random so just keep searching till you get it o/

    Hey there!


    It's that merry time of the year where we all give and receive gifts from our friends, colleagues, loved ones and so many more. The GS team would like to take this opportunity to extend our greetings for everyone in the AKUS community and our gratitude for everything in the last year through a video format (?). Although it was a last minute plan, our fellow GS Rikun was able to pull off a creative message + dance video we would like to dedicate to the community!


    And without further ado, we present to you a simple video pacaspy


    Giving away credits to the GS team, and Aura Kingdom (game and staff) for making this possible! Thank you very much everyone, and have a fruitful New Year~ pacayey

    Your AKUS Game Sage Team

    What do you mean by freezing though? The whole game freezes and doesn't respond or the game freezes but you can still hear background music?

    I agree with the above but as said, it's not the most optimal for bow. If you can and you're fine then sure, but generally, it mostly depends on the situation and most of the time, newbies who play bow would have a hard time jump casting while charging skills (as it ends up cancelling the skill + moving after jumpcast-charging, you'll be rooted into place until you release the skill at some times).


    If you plan to go long with bow and play it till the end, you'll have to switch out ASPD buff (if you plan to use that) to something else that's more optimal for bow (like dmg against element, etc.) to further maximize your dmg. Altho it'll depend on your future gears/setup as to what it will be.

    i just read your blog and i find most of the info useful i love the sorcerer class so much but i was wondering are there other eidolons you can use besides the one you suggested

    It can be any eidolon as long as it has the 25% atk speed and 45% dark damage stat reroll. People usually pick those Eidolons have advantageous skills like stun, nocturnal, def shred, etc. Since sorc naturally has no stun, it may be best to get an eidolon that has it and since Soul Draw is broken enough, having a nocturnal eidolon isn't as necessary, but those are my preferences. I usually run with someone who already has a nocturnal eidolon and can time it better than I do.


    At the end of the day, it's up to your preference as long as you can get the 25% atk spd and 45% dark skill dmg star buffs. Eidolons like Zephyrine and Muramasa naturally have 45% dark skill dmg star buffs so all you need to do is to reroll the 25% atk spd.

    Hiya, and no you don't so you won't be needing any external sources of atk spd. You get more dmg output if you fully charge your skills.
