October Updates!

14 Oct 2014

Plenty of updates this last month, and with lots more things for players to do and have fun with. Such as Dimensional Portals, and R Grade Armor tokens for .dressme. A lot of our users were having issues with our old auto updater, so we made some upgrades and our new one is much more convenient to use. So if you dont have it, go download it!









Highlights: ETERNAL/TWLIGHT/IMMORTAL ARMORS, BANNER CONTEST, AUTOUPDATER UPDATES, AND MORE





- We are currently having a Double GCM, GC, LS, and Enchant Scroll drop rate weekend, enjoy :)

- Our auto updater has been updated to a new one, too many people had issues with our old one. Such as their antivirus thinking its something bad, or the bottom part of the launcher turns white for them so they can not see whats being updated. This should not be an issue with new updater. If you have our old updater, when you run it, it will give you our new updater and put it in your L2 Directory, so please start launching the new one instead. For those who don t have it, download it on our connect page, even if you used to have issues with it in the past, this one should work for you!

- The item icons for R Grade Armor Tokens have been updated to help prevent people from trying to scamming. Because they looked like other coins in game. Thanks Lirael for making the icons!

- Our Banner Contest has ended, go check out the forums and see who won! There are lots of awesome banners to look at, thank you to everyone who participated!

- Fixed a problem with Blessed Earring of Anakim not giving the proper amount of M def, thanks Lirael for reporting.

- Recently transferred over some more Hats to the Fishing > Fun Items section.

- Added basic drops such as Adena and Cracked Kinship to Custom Fish Mobs to help make fishing more rewarding.

- Lameguard already tracked Hardware Ids on its side of the software, now we are starting to track it on the l2j side as well. Which can help with account recovery and security, and also can be used for future features later on.

- Now at the Voting section of the GM Shop you may check to see if name you want is available for a name change. Do this before contacting a GM to make sure the name you want is available. Tired of people asking if a bunch of names are available, takes too much time.

- All GMs now have the ability to change names (unless its a name swap). With the //eq_namechange command. It will automatically consume your GE when used, otherwise it wont work, and it won t work on already used names, and GMs can not use it on themselves.

- We made it impossible to abort the noblesse quest. Too many people either do it by accident or simply are having a problem and thinking aborting and restarting will help, but it doesn t, it makes things more complicated.

- Twilight Armors have been added to .dressme! But you need a Twilight Armor Token.

- Immortal Armors have been added to .dressme! But you need a Immortal Armor Token.

- Now when fishing and you get a monster on your fishing line the higher up monsters are custom fishing mobs now, these custom fishing mobs can open new portals which are somewhat different then the ones from farmzones, you can get twilight armor in this way.

- The junk that Black fishes give, like pieces of hats for crafting have been removed to give Adena and cracked kinship crystals, and proof of catching fish instead, so fishing is more rewarding.

- Frozen/VoL/FoW/FoR mobs now can spoiled for new item called Dimensional Key at a low rate. This Dimensional Key can be used inside farmzone portals to extend them and make them even more rewarding. This is how you obtain Immortal Armor Tokens through the extended area.

- Bound items have been renamed to Oath items. Since newer versions of L2 have Bound items which operate differently, and it confuses people and then people "think" they know what Bound is here, but they really don t.

- An additional reminder, our banner contest ends on September 22nd! Make sure to submit your banner. You even get a participation prize, but winners get donation credit to choose what they want, Crystal Enchant Scrolls, and more! Come check out our forums for some examples.

- An old GM has returned to duty! We proudly welcome back GM Caer!

- Our Auto Updater has been updated, thank you GM Caer for your artistic abilities!

- New Player Tracking improved communication tools. Specifically towards Greek and Portuguese players.

- A new .faq section was added, explain how rebirths work.

- Players can now type .rebirth for convenience for direct access to the faq section about Rebirthing.

- Added a bunch of new .info and auto announcement tips in regards to our many new features these last several months.

- Upgraded some GM tools.

- Fixed an issue with bound/oath elemental stones, and bound/oath elemental crystals. Some were giving improper elements. Thanks Cyberstar for reporting.

- Disabled dimensional merchants because you can not withdraw the items from them if you deposit them. Thanks for the report.

- Fixed an issue where when people voted for a random event, and random won, that sometimes an event wouldn t trigger.

- Fixed a problem where it would register you to a IP checking list for Olympiad if you tried to sign up with full matches, but wouldn t take you off the list once you were rejected due to full matches, screwing over other people from your IP, saying people were signed IP from your IP but they were not.

- Updated Bear Spirit Totem skill description client side, because it was typo ed by NCSoft, its supposed to say decreases run speed by 30%.

- Now you just need level 76 instead of 80 to use .dressme, this way newer players can get access to it and have fun with it easier.

- We are currently having a Double Raid Drop, AND a double Ancient Adena drop rate weekend, enjoy!

- Random tips announcements and the tips in .info were updated to reflect new features and updated outdated material.

- The icon for the newbie section at the GM Shop has recently been changed to a newbie scroll to help create more correlation, especially with non English speakers.

- Updated weapon glows, now you only need +7 or higher to activate weapon glows. This way new players can access this feature much faster.

- The newbie section of the GM Shop has been updated, everything now comes pre-enchanted to +7 :) enjoy.

- New Player Tracker/New Player communication updates. Making things easier and faster, and more informative.

- It has come to my attention that some normal areas potentially have better Exp in CoD, due to this the Exp in CoD has been boosted by 28%, which should be it on par and/or a little better then normal areas.

- Updated .staff with more information about newer GMs.

- The command .assists has been added so players can easily access information on how they work.

- Fixed an issue with Achievements where when you finish an achievement or it pops up because you reached a milestone for your achievement, when you clicked "achievement list" from those windows it wouldn t do anything. This is no longer an issue, thanks for the report!

- The command .achievement and .achievements have been added to get you directly to our achievement list for convenience.

- Eternal Armor has been added to .dressme, but you need an Eternal Armor Token to use it. Please read below on how to obtain one. Please note you need to run our Auto Updater to see it. Special thanks to Lirael for bringing over the textures.

- Now when you Farm in VoL/Frozen/FoR/FoW there will be a small chance when you kill a mob for a portal to open where the body of the monster is. Only the player who killed the monster will be able to enter this portal. You will ported to the Room of Roulette, its a randomized room, with a random amount of treasure chests with random prizes. Once you open all the boxes a Magnificent Chest will appear. A Magnificent Chest has the best rewards, which could also be a Eternal Armor Token.

- Please note the Eternal Armor Token is a tradable/sellable item, you can do what ever you want with it.

- Debuff landed messages have been moved to the left side of your screen, and debuffs other land on you and buffs are on the right side. You need to run our updater for this update. Special thanks to Lirael for editing the systemmsg-e.dat client file for this.

- Hide N Seek event prizes were updated!

- We are currently having a BANNER CONTEST! Prizes include donation credit and more. If you are not sure what a banner is you should check out our forums, there are many examples! There is even a participation prize. So even if you dont have experience with this sort of thing, feel free to try and you will still be rewarded!
