  2. 14th Anniversary Preview

    1. Could you explain this in more detail, i'm not really sure what the issue is being described. I will ask QA to review it if you can provide steps on where the fault is occurring and how to replicate the problem. 2. I looked at the skill and it seems to be a bug to me, I have asked QA to submit it to Dev for review. What's difficult to say is which part is considered a bug in the skill, it's unclear if any damage boost is intended from Spiritshots, so a fix could be that spirit shots are not consumed anymore rather than adding the damage boost effect.

    Our policy hasn't changed with regard to using cheats, hacks, or any sort of third-party software that automates gameplay. We're in the process of developing and testing new methods to improve the effectiveness of our detection capabilities.

    No, I don't recommend that you assume that.

    At this stage we have only the same information that anyone can see from translating the KR patch notes. As we all know content is changed between the versions but what is changed we will not know until very close to the release date. ~Thanks
  9. Roadmap 2018

    Dear players, We hope to help bring you many more fun and fruitful adventures across Aden this year. While we haven’t locked in all of our plans for 2018 with the development team yet, there are some noteworthy things we have in store that we’d like to share with you today. Additional events, promotions, and scheduling details will be provided as we get closer to their respective releases. On the game content front, we’re aiming for a midsummer release of Salvation: Final Episode. In addition to ushering in the ultimate showdown with antagonist Etis van Etina, this update will provide a new daily instance in which adventurers will be called upon to do battle with Helios, and a new solo Hunting Zone in the Atelia Refinery. The Final Episode will also feature updated Raid Boss encounters for Orfen, Freya (Epic), Frintezza (Epic), and Spezion (Epic). This conclusive saga to the Act of Salvation will be defined by Aden’s bravest heroes! There will of course be a steady flow of in-game events, store promotions, and community contests to bring a little variety to your travels. On the docket for the month of April is Lineage II’s 14th anniversary! In addition to providing helpful bonus server settings, we’re working out details to bring back the original Squash event with updated rewards to commemorate this latest milestone in Lineage II history. And, to add to the celebration, we’ll be hosting a screenshot, video, and art contest featuring several highly coveted prizes. Stay tuned! Many of you have asked about the return of Red Libra. We’d like to run this event twice in 2018 beginning in summertime so that the elders can offer you their regular array of fine services. In the fall it’s likely you’ll see aliens invading Aden again too. There are plans for returning and updated promotions as well, such as shirts and Freya’s shopping bag. We’ll have much more information for you as we continue our journey through 2018, beginning with the Squash event and other 14th anniversary festivities. We’d love to hear what you’d like to get out of Lineage II this year too! Cheers, The Lineage II Team

  12. Known Issues - April 18, 2018

    Hello all, We're using this thread to acknowledge select issues that impact most or all players. This list is by no means exhaustive and will be amended as often as possible to reflect status updates and track new issues. Fixed April 18: Speaking to the Monk of Chaos NPC disconnects player from the server. Text in-game sometimes displays as blocks when users first launch the client. We're in the process of assessing the cause and testing potential resolutions for this. As always, if you find a bug and want to be sure we know about it, you're welcome to post details on our Report a Bug forum.

We expect payment processing to be down from 4am PDT until approximately 1pm PDT on April 11. You will still be able to use any in-game currency you’ve already purchased for titles that do not rely on a web-based store. Impact on the game service will be different per title; please refer to the upcoming maintenance notices for each respective game for full details. After the upgrade is complete, if you happen to experience any payment issues or encounter any errors, please visit https://support.lineage2.com and submit a ticket for our support representatives to assist with.

    There are mechanisms to submit reports of behavior that violates the Terms of Use to our Customer Support team. Please don't make accusations on the forums and call characters or clans out by name. I've removed these call-outs from your post and locked this thread.
  20. We’ve gathered some common feedback, questions, and suggestions we’ve been seeing from players recently, including in response to the Salvation feedback poll conducted in January, and pulled out a couple of overarching topics we’d like to address here. There are obviously several other topics that the community wants to see discussed and we plan to continue to follow up with you. We’re regularly reading and considering your feedback, and appreciate you sharing it with us! L2 Store Promotions A common criticism we see from you relates to L2 Store promotions. While the base Lineage II experience is free-to-play, you can choose to speed up character advancement with items purchased on the store. We’re taking steps to improve how events and promotions are rolled out to players, with a more consistent rotation of free in-game events—such as the recent Oriana’s Lucky Draw event—that give players opportunities to obtain powerful items that are ordinarily found more rarely in RNG boxes. In addition to integrating more free events, we plan to better space out store promotions of new items so as not to overwhelm players who choose to spend. For instance, looking back at the recent three-month lineup of Circlets of Power, Zodiac Agathions, and Ancient Kingdom Cloaks offered on the store, we acknowledge that this an aggressive schedule. Store promotions will continue to be a regular feature of Lineage II, but we want to be more careful to rotate recurring promotions with those that introduce new items. And with free in-game events blended into a more consistent cadence, we feel that it’ll bring balance to the overall promotion schedule. We’re always evaluating how shop items or upgrade materials are obtained, as well as how players are responding to the latest promotions and events. We of course want these promotions to be successful, and it’s important that you feel justified when investing in any significant character improvement efforts. EXP Gains We know some of you are anxious to further your character’s advancement in Lineage II, and something we see commonly is a desire to more easily progress past Lv. 105. Because there isn’t content to support an increased level cap, climbing past 105 is currently designed to be intentionally challenging. Ultimately we want to ensure that dedicated players are able to reach Lv. 105 if they haven’t already, and the Heine Fishing Expedition and bonus EXP Server Setting are frequently enabled to help players accomplish this goal. For those of you who want to climb beyond Lv. 105, that day will come! There are also a decent number of players who pay attention to the Korean version of the game and have requested the speedy 1–85 alt advancement system that they’ve added. We’re considering ways to bring this to the North American version, but don’t have specific plans to announce at this time. Keep it Coming! By no means is this post intended to provide the final word on these subjects, and we hope to continue the dialog with you on additional topics as well. It’s understandable that some changes may feel slow to come, but we also want you to know that we’re committed to continuing to work to do what’s best for the game and its community. With that in mind, we plan to share our Lineage II Roadmap for the remainder of 2018 with you soon. On a final note, in the near future anyone who has at least one Lv. 85+ character on your account will be emailed a survey that will help us report additional feedback to the development team. You should make sure you’re opted in to receive emails from NCSOFT via your account settings and complete the survey. We’d appreciate it! Cheers, The Lineage II Team
  21. All game servers will be down for maintenance beginning Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 5am PDT / 7am CDT / 8am EDT / 1200 GMT and ending at approximately 8am PDT / 10am CDT / 11am EDT / 1500 GMT. Estimated downtime is 3 hours. With this maintenance: The Heine Fishing Expedition will return and run until April 25. Four bundles will be added to the L2 Store. New feature: NPC Peeves in Heine will exchange Embryo Bait Coupons for Master Fisherman's Blessing buffs. Master Fisherman's Blessing increases fishing EXP by 100% and can be combined with the effects of the Fancy Fishing Rod for a 150% total bonus. The following changes and bug fixes will be applied: Fixed an issue where some bosses did not display properly on the Raid Boss map. Improved memory performance when alt-tabbing and running multiple clients. Standard database maintenance and application restarts will be performed. Other updates and reminders: The Oriana's Lucky Draw event will continue until April 11, 2018, at which time event items will be deleted. If you have any questions about the changes taking place during tomorrow's maintenance, please feel free to post them on the forums. We also encourage you to follow @L2andAionOps for maintenance and server status updates.
  22. The store promo page is now available here.
  23. Embryo Fishing Returns (?!)

    Up and running:
  24. Greetings! The Heine Fishing Expedition will be returning this Wednesday, April 4. A new Master Fisherman's Blessing buff item will be made available in either a 1-hour, 2-hour, 4-hour, or 8-hour duration. This blessing can be stacked with the Fancy Fishing Rod to provide a total 150% EXP bonus—not too shabby! The 1-hour duration variant will be offered in an L2 Store bundle, and all four variants will be purchasable from NPC Peeves in Heine. Full details can be found on the store promo page.
  25. Embryo Fishing Returns (?!)

    Great timing! I'm making a post about this right now.
  26. Mischievous Golden Girl

    The golden girl's nobody's fool She bears gifts but you must keep cool She's hidden a link To find in a blink First to share with the world will rule! Yours truly, The Lineage II Teambit.ly/L2aprilfools
  27. Red Libra

    We would like to run the Red Libra event a couple times this year, but we're still a little ways out from that. Just know that it's on the schedule and coming!
  28. Oriana Event: how can there be "no winner"?

    Hey there! See my post in the event thread elaborating a bit more on winner selection. Essentially, with each drawing there's something like a "pass/fail" roll to determine if any winner will be chosen. If it passes a winner is then selected randomly from characters that are under the effects of Oriana's Disguised Clothing. With each successive stage (1–5) the chance that a winner will be chosen increases. Anyone with the buff has a chance to win anytime a drawing is done, but it's never guaranteed that someone will win.
  29. There are no current plans to add these grounds during Salvation in the West. The Next Target UI update was implemented to address a specific issue. It wasn't a content update.
