Thank you to all who joined us for our biggest event of the year. Despite the lag issue, there was still fun to be had and many "Expect the Unexpected" moments. As Ant mentioned in the game during the event, the server issue gave him a basis to continue discussions with MindArk toward achieving better optimization. We apologize for the inconvenience, but even we didn't expect to experience this at the degree we did. As the several server reboots didn't quite help to alleviate the issue, it's further evidence Monria needs help. I'm sure that between Ant and MindArk, they will figure it out. In the meantime, we will continue evolving Monria to bring you the best experience possible. Our release on Thursday, March 14th, was just the next in a pipeline of many exciting things to come. We thank you for your support and patience in understanding that our releases may not be that often, but we put a lot of thought into what we bring you. We will continue to listen, and design the experiences as best we can according to what your requests, ideas and suggestions are, along with a few surprises now and then. We appreciate our community, as well as the many friends, allies and supporters of Monria who inspire us to do what we can to elevate the experience. And to those in our Moon family who continue to go above and beyond to bring your best to serve our community, we love you immensely. This is why we do what we do to make sure you know that. We are silent observers, and recognize your tireless efforts to bring a level of support to our community that makes us incredibly proud that you represent Monria so well. Thank You. I want to personally thank Anny Thundergirl for once again capturing the spirit and fun of this event in her photos and videos. She was mostly in stealth mode while conducting her media work so no one knew she was there. I guess you could say that she is our secondary Monria Wizard of sorts after the magnificent Master Monria Wizard Oberon NightSeer. Between the two of them, they certainly keep us entertained. A big thank you goes to all others who have taken the time to post their photos for us to enjoy as well. Here are the event results, and congratulations to all the winners.

However, what we didn't expect, is that there would be 15 participants in this pet competition. We were going to do a random global draw like what is done with the Whip-O-Rama event, but there are only 10 numbers to work with, so we did 2 random global draws using numbers 1-8 with the first group, and numbers 1-7 with the second group ... Ant decided to give away 2 Rare Gold Leprechauns. THE WINNERS ARE: Lyons Moneyme GUESS THE 48 HR GLOBALS/HOFS TOTAL AND WIN 200 PED Winner is -- firejuggler -- Guess = 2087 / Actual Total = 2158 The biggest "Expect the Unexpected" moment of the event was when it was announced that we were going to do 4 random global giveaways of 4 Unlimited pieces of the new armor. And just to recap for clarity: there is now a new set of armor for each of our 4 mobs there is a set of Limited (L) and a set of (UL) to be discovered in loot drops hunt each of the 4 mobs for their respective armor --- Shoggoth armor parts will drop from Shoggoth only --- Yog armor parts will drop from Yog only --- Cultist armor parts will drop from Cultists only --- Shub armor parts will drop from Shub only the Cthulhu-like Face Guard will be the same for all armors --- the stats of each Face Guard will match the respective mob armor --- we are currently working on the texture of each mob Face Guard to match the armor --- there may also be additional tweaks for fit, etc --- these updates will come with a future patch the (UL) armor will be rare drops, but the (L) armor will drop more frequently it's been said that MindArk has stated that it takes up to a week for the (L) drops to start more often --- our development release just went out on Thursday, March 14th we're looking forward to seeing how this goes and who gets a full set of each mob armor first Here are the winners of the 4 (UL) armor parts giveaway: Malgar Thigh Guards (Shoggoth) -- debud po3blck avizov Oberon Face Guard (Yog) -- Georgi Velizari Hristov Pinthas Arm Guards (Cultist) -- debud po3blck avizov Shade Harness (Shub) -- vitor rotiv3tuga zezere Shoggoth Yog Cultist Shub And yes, we named these armors after a few of our community members. We also created NPCs named after some of our community members for the Hunting Dailies. Shoggoth Hunting Daily -- DSEC Forensics -- SachemUrsa --- located at the North end of Forensics Yog Hunting Daily -- DSEC Mining Camp -- Negated --- go SE of the TP just past the rock wall, almost into the crater Cultist Hunting Daily -- DSEC Military Camp -- WangXiang --- located at his Pet Stable -- go North of the TP around the rock wall --- Wang also has a Taming Daily mission Shub Hunting Daily -- Shub Cavern -- Angel of Shadows --- located at the Shub Cavern near the TP The Mining Dailies will be added in a future patch: Mining Dailies -- DSEC Mining Camp -- Curd The new Monria Lost Chapters mission will be implemented in a future patch: the NPC will be named Pinthas location of the Pinthas NPC will be at DSEC Forensics he is the one who wrote the Monria Lost Chapters story while a member of the original Monria Team we invited him to join our Media Team to continue writing storyline with me 4 volumes have already been published here this will be a separate mission from the original that you got from Jen at the Monria Hub you can complete the old mission if you like because the chapters collected won't go with the new one the reward for the old mission will not be automatically updated due to tracking issues we think you will like the new upgraded reward -- it's pretty cool Have Fun, and Always -- " Expect the Unexpected " Are you convinced yet that you should attend our events?
