Run Around the Classroom Waking Phorus Up In This Fun Dungeon Event!

Heya adventurer! How has your week been? Have you eaten? Are you hydrated? Are you feeling relaxed? If you said yes to all then all is well, we can jump right into the heart of things now! First up, just want to let everyone know that this week the maintenance is pushed back 1 day, so you will have to wait until Thursday to check out all the new goodies going into the game. But it will be worth the wait, I promise! What goodies, well, how about a new event dungeon! We have a new event dungeon where you can compete with another person on who can wake up the most sleeping Phorus. “But GM Amelia, why on earth would you want to disturb a slumbering creature’s sleep?” you might ask. Why, for the awesome rewards of course! Plus, they’re in school and you shouldn’t be sleeping class anyway! And it’s so much fun making Professor Banthus angry. Don’t take my word for it though, test it out on Thursday! And you should also check out the new stuff we have at the Item Mall for this week. I guarantee you’ll be completing a lot of sets *wink*.

Private Phoru Academy
Those mischievous Phorus are sleeping in class and Professor Banthus is allowing them to. Race against the clock to wake the Phorus up and don’t let Professor Banthus get in your way. But be careful, you only have to wake them, not hurt them!
  • You can get 3 [Cobo] Private Phoru Academy Student IDs when you log-in for an accumulated time of 10 minutes on the weekdays and you can get 5 by logging in for the same amount of time on the weekend. You’ll have so much IDs to sneak in class, you can keep waking Phorus up to your heart’s content!
  • Win or lose the event dungeon, you can still get a Phoru’s Thank You Stamp (you can get more by winning though!) which you can exchange for fancy costumes, a weapon costume, sit-motions, and much more!
  • Winners and losers will also get a Phoru’s Random Cube by clearing the event dungeon once. This cube contains all manners of useful things to help you along your journey!
  • And if you want a more permanent reward, you can craft your Chibi Academy Uniforms, Elrios Fountain Pen Weapon¸ and your custom sit motions to become permanent when you use a Phoru’s Magical Combiner! How awesome is that? Totes awesome!

Item Mall Goodies

The 2017 Winter Casual Accessories are out so you can pair it up with the costume! Add some life into your casual look with these adorable accessories! Watch out for them on Thursday!

The Dragon Knight, Holy Unicorn, Dark Shadow sets are back! If you haven’t completed these su-weeeet sets yet, now’s the perfect time to do so because when they’re gone, you might never see them again. So, start collecting the pieces on Thursday!

Also, remember these adorable Chubby Seal/Cozy Seal sit-motions? You only have a few days left to get them before they disappear. And then you’d have missed your chance to get something adorable. Forever! Don’t miss your chance, get them now!

That’s all for now folks~

Watch out for the update on Thursday and see y’all in-game!
