If you’re a fan of Final Fantasy or JRPG that a great news, Final Fantasy V  was actually a really good game back in the 90’s but never made it to the snes. We had to wait for a re-release on the Playstation to enjoy it. The game wills have updated graphics and character portraits while retaining the 16-bit aesthetic of the original.

If you never played Final Fantasy V, but played some other of the series, you will fin that the most notable difference is the job system. You can freely select a job for each characters and the characters can learn skill from the job he has and you can change it when you want. There was a total of 22 jobs in the original 26 in the gameboy advance version. Let hope they will give us the lasted update.

Official Strategy: Werewolf’s Last Sprint

For better management of werewolf, Ancient Summoner official site offers the strategy of werewolf cards. As a bloodthirsty race, the instinct wildness and agility lead werewolf to the most horrible killer in the continent. Fenris the Butcher, the most powerful one of halfblood, needs a detailed description indeed.


Fenris the Butcher(Epic)has a relatively high initial attack value-5. His 13 HP is also outstanding, and with its 3 CD, it is surely a rare card. Sprint, the shared attribute of halfblood, endorsed it good mobility. And the attribute “Rage” makes it terrific when injured. But what fair is that it also has weakness—when you summoned it, the attribute “Blood Price” caused you 3 damages.

Add the attribute of “sanctuary” or those that can recover HP to Fenris the Butcher to ensure it won’t die when injured, thus it can become the nightmare of opponents. It’s fair to say that priest and Fenris the Butcher is the perfect pair.

When you’re facing Fenris the Butcher, the strategies for players is as following:

1. Kill it with units or skills of high attack as the activation of the attribute “rage” is counted by attack turns and it increases 1 attack every time after you attack it.

So if you use the card that has only 1 attack value, Fenris the Butcher will become very horrible.

2. Use a card that can fly over it to avoid frontal confrontation.

3. Use a wall to block it. The fourth is to use the Mage’s attribute of petrify.

4. Add the skill of “sanctuary” to his target and let him reap the consequences, when you are a priest.

The introduction of death knight entry into Ancient Summoner is about to come in the next stage. What’ll happen when death knights lands in the fantasy? Interested and expected? Let’s wait passionately until it is unveiled!

Gamebox recently just launched 2 new servers for its popular fantasy card game Ancient Summoner: S2 Werewolf and S3 Bloodmoon. These two new servers are both named after the folklore of the halfblood, because of its immense popularity not only in modern popular fictions, but also in Ancient Summoner.

In Ancient Summoner, all creatures are classified into 8 races with different orientations. And the Halfblood, as unique as any other races, has become the favorite of many players.  Halfblood creatures are  “notoriously” known for dealing massive physical damage. Feles, Centaurs, Tengus, Sylvis, and of course, Werewolves, unlike other races that often have their own mages or priests, these halfbloods deal only physical damage, and they deal a lot. Against a halfblood gang, creatures with low HP or armor are not likely to survive even one single strike.

Some proper armor and high DPS mages are the  efficient way to stop these werewolves from eating your body.


The half-man-half-mammal image is the signature of the Halfblood. However, not all the halfblood creatures look as scary as werewolves or centaurs.  An event quest currently going on in the game is giving a halfblood creature of the cutest combination of human and mammal that you can think of: the bunny girl! It’s called Mynx in Ancient Summoner. And the cutest thing about this event is that players need to finish several independent quests to collect the item of carrot. And with a required amount of carrots, you can finally get your own bunny girl Mynx!

Currently, as this game became more and more popular, Ancient Summoner is now available on both Chrome Web Store (as an app) and Mozilla FireFox (as an add-on).
