On the Road to Avalon

Arietta's Fantasy Life

March 5th, 2008

It's finally here! It seems that FilePlanet will be handing out open beta keys for the first 24 hrs. Those people who played during CB and pre-OB will not need to download another client. More info can be found here. I'm going to be spending most of my time leveling and partying in game, since I'm aiming for the Bangor seal breaker title. Once that business is out of the way, I'll update the site with screenshots and stuff again. Take care :)

Update! After some problems with meeting everyone since there's now 3 servers (I'm on Mari server), we made our guild Avalon and started with a Math Dungeon run, where we got party wiped. I'm up to Ranged Mastery C and Magnum Shot D now. I need AP sooooooooooo badly! >.<  Moongates are up too now. So far, Dugald Aisle, Ciar Dungeon and Math Dungeon seals have been broken on Mari Server!

The official NA Mabinogi website has been updated. There's now some guides, blogs, downloadables and other stuff geared for players (basically the standard MMO stuff). The latest announcement confirms that while OB will start this Wednesday at 3pm PST, the first 24 hours will be reserved for FilePlanet users. It is possible to sign up for FP for free and get keys to get in during this time to reserve your character name and get started on your fantasy life. There's also another one of those promotion events going on. Just under 2 days left now....

Just another 2 days till open beta! It seems that there's a rumour going around the forums that FilePlanet will have advanced access to NA Mabi OB. So far, there's no official information from Nexon or FilePlanet. This information is very important for reserving character names and seal breaking, so I'm waiting for an official announcement to come. The client has received a few patches in the past few days, so I've been patching up to date to make the best use of my time.

I've been snooping around the fanart boards lately. Here's one that I liked, by Fenne (フェンネ) of JP Mabi Marii server.

It's been three days since the end of pre-open beta and only 6 more days till open beta begins. I've been hard at work getting myself familiar with skills, weapons, quests and other stuff off JP Mabi Wiki and English sources, such as MabiGuru, MabiPlayer and MabiWorld. I think I'm going to need all of the next 6 days to prep for OB. I can't wait though!

Too bad Googlepages isn't really oriented towards blogs well... Maybe I should find some place to transfer this journal to instead, so I can get people to comment here as well. Just a thought.

It's the last day of pre-open beta. I've decided to go visit all the dungeons I haven't been to yet, as well as Bangor since I didn't check it out completely. First up is Peaca Dungeon, which looks like a cemetary. However, as I was told earlier, it isn't open yet. So I continued west towards Emain Macha.

Suddenly, I had these visions of myself... many of me... running naked surrounded by an endless whiteness...

February 23rd, 2008

It's finally NA Mabinogi Pre-Open Beta! I had previous met some new friends during closed beta 3 weeks ago, so the plan was to meet up with them and do some more exploring and getting used to skills and party strategies.

Without further ado, my fantasy life begins...
