Clan Headquarters: Clan Quiz Q&A

To be clear, most of the question and answers here are from PWI. Though they are similar, some names of places or items are different from what we know here. I'm still in the process of updating it to be applicable for Perfect World PH.

I've collated all the questions I encounter during the clan quiz. Most of the time, 4 out of 6 characters encounters the same question so I'm having a hard time updating this. If you encounter some questions which are not yet "translated" for PW PH, feel free to add it in the comments (adding your server and IGN is welcome for acknowledgment)

Hun Ling Pet: Avatar of the Chaos Bringer

When you thought getting Avatar of the Life Giver was challenging, here's another pain in the arse quest for Hun Ling's in Perfect World Philippines. When I reached level 59, I eagerly finished my esteem so I can get my Avatar of the Chaos Bringer. Avatar of the Chaos Bringer or CraggLord in PWI is the last pet or summon for the mystics. There have been several debates in PWI forums whether maxing out the level of this pet is worth it since he can only be used when you have 2 chis/sparks and can only last up to 20 secs. Personally, I think maxing it out is a good idea since at level 1 the damage is outrageous leaving all my doubts aside of leveling it up.

Getting this pet is like looking for a needle in a haystack but then you can burn the haystack right? So my loudspeaker came in handy and I would like to thank ROXY of Calamity Clan for giving out the most sensible answer to my question.

Hun Ling: Avatar of the Life Giver, I FINALLY Got You Now!

I love my Hun Ling ,™Kurenai™ even if I had to go through of doing quests from level 1, I must say it doesn't matter to me anymore not until yesterday. Getting my Avatar of the Life Giver or also known as Salvation was easy peasy when I played PWI, probably because everything was translated well but for the life of me, acquiring Avatar of the Life Giver wasn't an easy task for me to do in PWPH.

When I thought that Awakening of the Guardians was released with no flaws or at least near to perfection, we were bombarded with quests which are either not translated or can't be read in the quest log (literally).

For the benefit of my co-Hun Lings out there who hasn't received their Avatar of the Life Giver or currently doesn't know where to get it, here are some information that hopefully will save you from some pain in the arse.

Facebook Fan Pages Timeline: Tough Challenge in Running Promotions

Timeline. For the love of Internet, what came across Zuckerberg's mind to come up with this? Seriously, I don't like it applied to my personal page. Yes, the images are eye-catching but reading my wall or a friend's wall is nerve wracking. At one point the latest post will be on the left side, the next thing you know it's on the right column...WTF?

To add up on my rants, on March 30, 2012 all fan pages will automatically get the new design (Timeline). With this update, online marketers and some businesses who mainly use FB to promote their site and products might encounter some challenges in terms of running promotions.

Perfect World: Clan Headquarters

As mentioned in my previous post, one of the best feature that Awakening of the Guardians (AoG) expansion will bring is the Clan Headquarters. Since PWI already have this since last year (geez, we really had to wait that long), I assume that the guide I found will work for Perfect World PH (I've taken some notes from PW PH's Official Site). It would take me some time to customize this guide to fit for the local version, I have this feeling it's either the name of the places and stuffs will be Chinese related, so for now stick with me.

So what does a clan headquarter do for the players?

The features and benefits of a clan headquarters include providing quest, selling gears, items, and potions, providing helpful buffs and being the battlefield. Woohoo!

To Create a Clan Headquarter:

• Must be the Master of a Level 3 Clan. (Speak with the Clan Administrator at Dragon City (595 665) to raise your Clan Level if you have not yet done so)
• Must have 1 Clan Headquarters Deed in your inventory. You can purchase a Clan Headquarters Deed from the Clan HQ Administrator.

The Clan Headquarters Deed costs:

 • 500 Mysterious Chips (Obtained from Mysterious Chip Packs and various in-game events)
 • 20 Perfect Vouchers (Trade 10,000,000 Yuan for one Voucher at the Bank Owner)
 • 2,000 Thousand-Machine Parts (Crafted using 5 Polished Lumber, 5 Tempered Steel, 5 Grindstone Powder and 5 Anthracite)
• 500 Misty Emblems (Obtained from monsters in the Misty City)

Important note: The Clan Headquarters Deed cannot be traded, dropped or placed in Account Storage, so make sure that the Clan Master is the character who crafts the item.

Basic Clan Headquarters Information

1.) HQ Level and Construction – Shows the Clan HQ’s current level and the amount of construction points currently invested. Once enough construction points are donated, the Clan Master can click the Upgrade button to increase the Clan HQ’s level.

2.) Resource Count – Shows the amount of resources currently invested. Resources are used to construct and upgrade Clan facilities.

In a later patch, Clans can attack each others’ HQ in order to pillage the resources within.

3.) Clan Technology Levels – Shows the investment of technology points. Each facility has a Technology Aspect prerequisite. You will need to raise that Aspect in order to construct higher-level Facilities.

Upgrading Faction Structures

Awakening of the Guardians, Wake up Now!

I've been playing Perfect World for more than 3 years now and like any other game, Perfect World launched several awesome patches that makes the players enjoy and support the game even more. For the past few months, Level Up! Games have been promoting the new expansion "Awakening of the Guardians". In the Perfect World International version, it's known as "Genesis". Awakening of the Guardians (AoG) will feature a new race - Earthguard, two new classes: seeker and mystic. Several areas and dungeons will be opened and new gears and guild bases will be available for all the players.

My Mystic with my ever reliable pet that buffs increased defense and absorbs damage for its caster.
The Mystic or better known as Hun Ling (Druid) is a magic-user. She has the ability to cast nature-based auras and summon powerful entities to assist her in combat. She is adept at focusing nature’s nurturing energies to heal and assist her allies. Hun Ling’s can be male or female.

The Seeker or better known as Jian Ling (Blademaster) focuses natural energies through sword forms to become a versatile fighter. His weapon can be infused with various arcane powers, which, in combination with heavy armor, makes him a fearsome force on any battlefield. Jian Ling can be male or female.

"Awesome" BayanTel's Customer Service and Support, long gone?

I have been a subscriber of BayanTel since 2003, at that time I only got their landline subscription until 2008 I decided to avail their DSL bundle. Everything was promising, I had an awesome speed connection which catered my entertainment needs in terms of gaming, movie and music downloads.

But like any dream, I was visited by a terrible nightmare which came to life that a customer would like to be awakened of - BayanTel's service and support sucks. Last year, a week doesn't pass by without calling their technical support and all with the same problems - no internet and/or intermittent connection, no dial tone. They replaced my ZTE modem with an older looking version. It looks really old but it worked so it was fine with me so the BayanTel agents were spared by my rants and I got spared from their spiels and customized templates.

Until today, I had the same effin problem AGAIN. Before, whenever I had issues, a day won't pass by and my issue is quickly resolved. The technician will contact me for confirmation that he passed by the house and fixed it and this genuine awesome customer service is long gone.

Group discount sites are a craze nowadays since it gives more value to your money. I personally have made several purchases via Metrodeal and Pakyaw, so far my experiences with them are positive. In my quest of discovering more awesome groupon sites, I finally gave CashCashPinoy a chance. I've seen several banners in 7-11 stores near our office advertising that CashCashPinoy payments can be done at their establishment. So, I asked my good friend (who I can say is expert in terms of group discount sites, you can check out her blog heresome feedback and so far they have only pissed her off once.

Geeky Earrings: Piranha Plants

I love earrings specially dangling and those geeky earrings that has a game theme. One awesome lady created Piranha Plant earrings made of polymer clay. If you're an avid fan of Super Mario, the Piranha plants are familiar to you for sure. They may look like they are chomping on your ear lobes but there's a metal post hidden in their mouths.

Central BBQ Boy Grill: All that Nom Nom Nom Part 2

After our adventure at Zark's Burger, we went to Central BBQ Boy Grill at Malugay St to meet our other friends. If you plan to go there, it's behind Cash & Carry (Filmore St.). I've been to Central Boy a couple of times and for me their cocktails are good as well as the place. Their Malugay branch is bigger compared to their branch in Mayapis, which can also be found at Makati. The crowd is merely composed of yuppies who are in the mood of good and clean fun. Like any typical bars, Central Boy have bouncers so no messing around, folks.

Central at 8:30pm - The party has not started yet
Once you get hold of their menu, first thing you'd notice is the humor they added when they named their food and drinks (check out the bottom of the post for details). Since we were still full, I decided to get their combo (Php 699) - 3 cocktails + 2 pulutan (a choice of Nachos + Hotdog or Flaming Tuna + Barbeque). So let me start showing you their Pulutans :D

Flaming Tuna ni Boy will surely get your attention. Tuna chunks in a sizzling plate which will be served to you while it's still flaming. The tuna is well cooked and there's no malansa after taste. You can even pair this with rice if you're up for it.

Flame on!

Zark's Burger: All that Nom Nom Nom! Part 1

It's been a long time since I had dinner with my good old friends Bully, Rizza, Dennis, Dianne. Since I promised them that we will meet up after my birthday, we decided to do it before Valentine's. So last Saturday, we decided to hit Zark's Burger at 2F Archer’s Nook, Taft Ave. It's just in front of La Salle and if you see Yellow Cab and Army Navy in the establishment then you're in the right place.

Since it will be long night of munching and fun, I decided to have Jawbreaker (Php 250). This beauty is composed of triple cheeseburger with Spam, bacon itsy bitsy of lettuce and tomato. I just wished that the bacon was crispy but nonetheless, it's a good choice for bacon and spam lovers out there. Finish this in 5 minutes and it's free. They will be having an ongoing promo this Feb. 6 and 11th. The Jawbreaker will be Php 150 from Php 250.

Spam and Bacon - What more can you ask for?

Poké Balls: Gotta have em all!

Pokémon, who doesn't know this video game/cartoon? The adorable Pikachu, Squirtle and other friends of Ash. Most of the kids know them for sure and apparently some guy from DeviantArt is too awesome that he created Poké Ball artworks. For those who are not aware what a Poké Ball is, it is a spherical device used by Pokémon Trainers to capture wild Pokémon and store them when not active.

I seriously want these artworks in real life *drools*

Naruto, are you there?

Takoyaki: You're so Yummy!

I'm not a real fan of Japanese foods mainly because I have this impression that most of their foods are raw (no offense meant). Aside from California Maki and Tempura, there's no other Japanese food that you can make me eat until Lesly introduced to me Takoyaki.

"Takoyucky? Tako what?" That's the first thing that came out from my hungry mouth and puzzled brain. "Just come with me and try it" she replied.

So what is Takoyaki? Takoyaki (literally fried or grilled octopus) is a popular ball-shaped Japanese dumpling or more like a savory pancake made of batter and cooked in a special takoyaki pan. It is typically filled with diced octopus, tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, and green onion.
Takoyaki! Yer so yummeh!
So, we headed to Glorietta 4's Food Court and found this stall selling Takoyaki in 3 increments - 3 for 39 php, 6 for 69 php, 9 for 99php (?)

Potchi survived ParvoVirus

My post is totally out of line with the genre of my blog - food and gaming. However, I had this urge to share my experience with my dog catching the parvovirus. So what the heck is a parvovirus?

Parvovirus is a contagious virus mainly affecting dogs. The disease is highly contagious and is spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces. It can be especially severe in puppies that are not protected by maternal antibodies or vaccination.

Jan 13th, after spending a night out with my good friends I thought that I was spared from the "unlucky Friday the 13th". Well, I was but not Potchi, my Border Collie (mixed) 7 month old puppy. When I came home that night, I thought he was just too sleepy to play with me so I left him at his bed and said goodnight.

Jan 14th, my brother told me that Potchi didn't eat anything since Friday and he was vomiting and having some diarrhea. He was not his usual self, Potchi is the most playful dog to the point that he will literally drive you nuts but that day, he was too lethargic - just lying around and not responding to our calls. At first, I thought he just ate something that may have upset his stomach but later that night, I saw his stool giving out a foul smell and there were traces of blood.

Took a picture of my "baby" before bringing him to the vet
