November and Updates!

01 Nov 2012

L2 Equanimity is now entering November 2012. This month Freya was added along with quests leading up to raiding her. We also had our first XP/SP/Adena rate increase event for Halloween! We are going to have a contest soon so keep your eyes on the news window in game. Look below for this last months list of updates.
HIGHLIGHTS: FREYA IS NOW RAIDABLE, NEW GMs 


- For the rest of today (Halloween!) the server's XP/SP/Adena rates have been temporarily increased by 50%!
- Fixed an issue with Freya showing up on the Raid Status window.
- Also who ever fights/kills Freya feel free to contact me about the difficulty im hoping its not way too hard, but fairly difficult.
- Freya is now raidable, dont forget you and the rest of your command channel needs the following quests to enter, "The Other Side of the Truth", "Request of Ice Merchant", "Acquisition of Divine Sword", "Meeting Sirra", "Renion With Sirra" which can be started at the NPC named Rafforty at Frozen Labyrinth. At a certain point in the "Reuinion With Sirra" quest when you talk to Jinia at Freyas Garden is when you will enter the Raid. Remember to report any issues with the raid, their can be bugs i overlooked or things like i didnt xfer over the correct version of the raid.
- Freyas Cloak unseal option is now available at the Spoil section of the GM Shop.
- There was a problem with adding Freya to the raid status window... should be fixed next restart, her respawn time is 5 days with a 24 hour window.
- Freyas Blessed Necklace upgrade option has been added to the luxury area of the GM Shop, Freya will drop 2 Necklaces and each one will have a 50% chance of being a blessed or normal version
- Updated the FaQ section "What are Custom/Epics Raids respawn times" with Freyas respawn info.
- Updated our Staff page to include Ravens our newest GM, forgot to add them ;p.
- Updated our forums to the newest version of Phpbb.
- fixed a problem with using ` for team chat in CTF after the rewrite, thx celmor for reporting.
- fixed a buff stack issue with servitor share.
- Some minimum heal/damage requirements for a prize tweaks for prophets in the Raid Battle Event.
- Removed cancel type skills from the Veil Masters near Zaken and from Sailren.
- CTF has been re added to our event schedule as normal, the major issues have been ironed out.
- The skill Servitor Share now works, but its very custom and NOT retail like.
- The drop rate of Adena, GCM, GC, LS, Blessed Enchants and more have been increased in FoR.
- Fixed an issue where players were not able to damage castle walls durring a siege properly, it was only allowing siege weapons to damage them, thx ValakasLair for reporting.
- Added a new FaQ section called "What are the Epic/Custom raids respawn times".
- added the command .invasion to describe how the invasion event works, the command will be announced when the event runs.
- Updated the command .rabbit to include more detailed information about how the rabbit chest event works.
- A new GM has joined our staff, their name is Ravens!
- Fixed the issue where players Max HP would not update correctly (for example if you equiped a health weapon, heal, then take it off the health weapon, your hp would say the hp of what you had with the health weapon, thx l2j for the fix.
- Fixed a problem that was preventing players from adding elements to Vesper Dual Swords {PvP], thx peric0l for reporting.
- More CTF fixes, last update didnt fix the issue, lets see if this one does, to test it Balls will trigger the event manually, for more information check the previous update.
- Fix to the event schedule, last fix didnt work, but this one does, for more info check the 10-14-12 update.
- Fixed an issue with the quest Path to becoming an Exalted Mercenary, it wouldnt count your kills vs players or ballistas, thx charlitheunicorn for reporting, but just a heads up after i fixed it i found out that you cant use that area of the shop anyhow, so that part will be added soon.
- There are some issues with CTF since the rewrite, I think they are now fixed, but just in case CTF still has issues its been temporarily removed from the event schedule etc, and balls will trigger them manually to test/watch to make sure there is no more major issues, what was happening was alot of crit errors and mutliple flag spawns. should be back to normal and back to into the event schedule soon.
- An issue "should" be fixed with beleth, that would sometimes make extra spawns (let me know).
- Fixed a rare issue with events where their instance will be destroyed as soon as its made.
- In addition to above some more minor issues were also fixed with CTF, like properly removing flag from players at the end of the event, the flag hold timer still counting down when the event was over, the flag hold timer when it 0 was saying it returned the wrong team names flag, CTP htmls were showing up instead of CTF ones the soda map, and more.
- CTF has been rewritten to use our new Event engine, like CTP, KOTH, and TvT recently have, this means CTF will gain the following features it didnt have before, Setup mode in the beginning of the event, waiting lists to see whos signed, flag removal when the event starts, Event NPCs spawned in every town, and more.
- We took some time and made some changes to our old invasion mini event so that we can start using it again.
- Should have fixed a problem with event scheduling, when the auto event system would trigger voting for an event, it would un sychronize the timer making it do a random event next instead of the scheduled event.
- Fixed a small issue with Purple Maned Horse transformation, the animation could be spammed with no limits.
- Added the quests leading up to the Freya raid, they can be done by talking to Rafforty at Frozen labryinth, the quests are Acquisition Of Divine Sword, Meeting Sirra, and Reunion With Sirra, please note freya is not done yet so it will stop you when its time to do the raid and that you need to do the quests The Other Side of the Truth and Request of Ice Merchant first. Please note there are a few small problems with the quests added like a few missing html windows, but nothing that should impede your advancement in the actual quest, its also possible i didnt xfer all teh files correctly from the test server, so if there is a major issue let me know.
- Fixed a problem if a player didnt meet the damage/healing quota for the rb event, as in they were afk, that they could get the least death prize, this is now fixed, keep in mind this was already blocking the regular rewards from these players.
- Spoil rates have been increased to x2 (this will not effect custom mobs though).
- Fixed a problem with the skill Song of Purification it would initially take up 2 song/dance buff slots thx kilarohma for reporting.
- Waking scrolls were added to the supply shops in events (since you cant hit team mates in events, its kinda hard to wake them up lol).
- Flag hat and buff scrolls were not sellable/tradable etc, now they are.
