Completely forgot to update the OP.
There's also a comeback campaign for anyone who hasn't logged in for 3 months where they'll get EXP tickets, 5 Shinestones and a Black Envelope.
Everyone can also log in 5 times from 1/1 to 1/10 and get 5 Shinestones and a Black Envelope.
It seems slipping some worms is the real problem here not because of timing Despia' skill. The funny part that.. i didn't realise when Phenex changed to 2nd form, all mobs were almost invulnerable.....
