Pioneering Granado Espada: kGE v4.0.0 Preview
v3.6 is nothing but a lie.
[1 ~ 4] New Tutorial
The old tutorial has been scrapped.
This new tutorial rewards various freebies including a new pet (it's a chick!), temporary gold school uniform costumes, and beginner's special buff.
Obviously the new tutorial is not available to established pioneers, so if you want the new pet, you probably have to get it with a mule account.
[5 ~ 6] New Raids. Revised Raids.
New AQM Raid as part of the Emilia, Lorch, and Rio story. Look at all the dead people.
Several other raids have revised loot and extra instanced formats now. These raids include Chateau de Bourgogne, Schaffenberger, and Rafflesia. It's all part of the "Raid Anytime" change.
 Team List
The barracks have a new feature for setting up favourite teams now. You choose the three characters, give the team a name, and save it to your favourite list. From then on, you can quickly select this team from the new menu instead of going through all seven barracks to pick them one by one again.
Not exactly the "rearrange characters" feature that many have been asking for, but in terms of functionality, this is definitely more convenient.
It's a mailbox system that allows sending of up to 100 messages and items between players.
There's another minor change not mentioned in the preview. The auto-path system for the minimap has improved functionality now. There's an extra list at that side so you can select your target NPC/object directly. A map point will appear on the minimap and you can command your characters to move towards target directly. Pretty nifty.
And that's all as a first update. It's mostly new features, and not much else in terms of quests and actual content, but I'm expecting the new RNPCs and stances to come real soon after this.
So ... it's a love triangle. Emilia, Lorch, and Vincent. All in AQM. With a raid.
Also, that chicken is gonna give hax Lv 20 buffs, I know it. (Nevermind: http://bookofwind.blogspot.com/2008/12/pets.html#Coco
