  1. Impressive.
    I haven’t been this surprised with a patch since Dio’s arrival in NAGC.
    Still not as surprising as a certain magical knight though…

  2. That is quick… these events might as well be Here have Rufus for free if you play enough.

    • The GP mission will be collecting 50 Orbs from 1 area part 1 and collecting 50 from the next area part 2. But don’t miss the free cash mission. Practically really hard if play GC a lot cuz of log in and attendance.

    • Yeah it is, just log in and check attendance and you’re basically guaranteed to get the mission, just don’t forget to forge the voucher. It’s in the ? under epic quality.

  3. lol remember rufus the naked mole rat from kim possible? =)))
    BTW i wish gcph could have him soon but still we are lacking darkbringer =(

    • OMG yes I was just thinking that. In all honesty, I don’t like the free character idea… Yeah, flame me. >_>

    • Someone on the NAGC forums explained the change well.

      Lupus is a type of illness. Not to mention it hints as a links with wolves, which Rufus does not have. If anyone should be called Lupus, it’s Ryan.

      For Rufus, he posted this picture of some game character with a gun. ._. I guess whoever that dude is is called Rufus too.

  4. bad balance… Well some are good.. But im still suprised about some other. I think ramas 3rd bar shouldnt have a pull effect. And alos for sieghart.. Hier attacks.. are still annoying. DK they need to give him a proper 1st bar skill….

  5. stupid SB, we cant get lv 10 set for fusion anymore, and we can only get weapon = with set’s lv now ><

    well … still …. happy for Rufus, this is the 2nd time we get the patch right after KRG (1st time was Draka)

  6. Rufus… really? My ex gf called my shaft Rufus, that alone is enough to make me not wanna play this character. XD

  7. Stocking event, free character chances with a free set, and magic kunji…. Wow NAGC, you’ve honestly done a fucking amazing patch this time.

  8. I like rufus much better then lupus, but i like lexus better then rufus ._.
    (reason: Lupus – a discusting rash ; Lexus – just sounds better)

  9. So what is exactly the Rufus Cash Voucher? So you pretty much log in and check attendance til you get 10 of those crystals and forge it. You just get a cash mission. Do it and you get Rufus?
