14 Jan 2017

- Here is a compilation of our most recent updates. Which contains some pretty signficant updates to our server, including the clan ambition system, clan unity items, dragon claw weapon skins, new certifications skills.




HIGHLIGHTS: CLAN AMBITION, CLAN UNITY ITEMS, DRAGON CLAW WEAPONS, NEW CERTS




- For player convenience, GCM for KE has been added to the luxury area of the GM Shop, so you dont have to go to a suspicious merchant. This was also done because people seem not to know about this, it only costs 850 KE for a GCM here, which is much lower then retail.
- As suggested on the forums, now when there is more then 5 people signed for Olympiad .oly will say 5+ instead of the actual value, this is to help against feeding.
- The global announcement for Olympiad matches has been updated.
- Fixed a problem for .dressme for Demon Splinters dual fist wasnt working, thanks Ecksdee for reporting.
- misc gm tool updates.
- Fixed an issue with contributing clan items to your clan leader where if you didnt have a clan, it just took your items, thanks for reporting.
- To help keep things fair, players are now automatically checked time to time to see if they have exceeded the normal amount of sub certs, just in case someone got an extra one some way either it be a bug or exploit, if they do have extra they are automatically removed, and GMs are notified.
- Updated .newbie > which clans recruit new players in game, and our on forums. Removed inactivate clans, added active ones, updated contacts etc. If anyone knows a clan recruiting new players, please let us know, or if contacts change, or if a clan goes inactive, its very important to keep this list up to date!
- Fixed an issue where ambition items were not always being removed properly upon leaving/kicking clan, thanks for reporting!
- NPC Theme has returned to normal.
- Voting, events, mobs and raids no longer give you Christmas socks. Our Xmas event is now over.
- Xmas area of the GM Shop and Xmas portal will remain for at least one week, and will be removed around January 13th.
- L2 EQ Version v5.7 is now available, you can download the new patch on our connect page, or you can use the updater to get the new files. Remember you will need this client update to see some of the new features.
- Unity items have been added. These are another part of the Clan Ambition System and can be acquired with Scrolls of Ambition. Unity items are special clan version of items, such as Necklace of Valakas - Unity. Unity items can be given to clan members by the leader, and are impossible to steal. Clan leaders can recover Unity items from members with a command, or they are automatically returned to the leader if the player leaves clan or is kicked. Unity items are designed to help make clans stronger, and to help support players in their clans with out having to worry about people getting scammed. Your already existing items can be converted to Unity items with Scrolls of Ambition at the Ambition area of the GM Shop.
- Just Boss Jewel Unity items are added for now, tons more will be added. The base code has been created on how to handle these new type of items, so adding more will be very easy.
- Unity conversions cost 15 Ambition Scrolls and 5,000 clan rep.
- Unity items can not be enchanted beyond the original item conversion, for example if you had a +18 Valakas that you converted to a +18 Valakas - Unity, it will still be +18, but the person wont be able to enchant it more and risk breaking it, to be clear, its impossible for a clan member that is not the leader to alter these items or lose them, or break them.
- Unity items can be converted back to normal items at the Ambition section of the GM Shop, but costs 1 scroll of ambition and 1000 clan rep.
- Dont worry, there will be a penalty for PKers for using these items to go on PK sprees, that will be added shortly.
- The command .removeunity has been added, .removeunity name for example .removeunity balls would be for someone named balls, can be used to remove unity items from players from your clan with out kicking them from clan (kicking or them leaving removes it automatically), you can also use .removeunity everyone which removes them from everyone in your clan. Take note this command can only be used by clan leaders.
- We will also make more tools to track who has which unity items in your clan in the future.
- Due to so many problems with players not following the rules/trying to find gray areas and wasting our time. Wards can no longer leave siege grounds, so if you exit a siege (the area around the castle) with a ward, it will be automatically removed, no more running off in hiding it in crazy places.
- Made it where players are less likely to glitch out on other players screens when attacking doors/walls on sieges and TW. This should make these go more smoothly.
- Fixed a problem we encountered recently with Territory Wars where someone gave up their castle before TW, and no ward spawned at that abandoned castle, and that new owner on sieges kept the wards the next day. Thanks for reporting.
- Fixed an issue with dragon weapon skins that have an aura, you wouldnt get the aura if you had an augment visual effect.
- If someone happens to leave clan or gets kicked and they happen to have clan items, like Ambitious Task scrolls (like they were your leader temporarily) or they have Clan Contribution items, like rebirth feathers that were sent through the Ambition section of the GM Shop. Those items will appear in the current leaders warehouse.
- Dragon weapons have been added to our websites gallery, this includes the aura versions and the regular versions, that way you can see what they look like, enjoy!
- Due to next castle sieges landing on Christmas, there will be no sieges that day, next sieges will be January 8th, 2017, 9:30 AM.
- Fixed an issue with contributing Olympiad daily quest tokens, when you tried to do 10, it only took 1. Thanks for reporting.
- Players can obtain special Christmas Socks by voting, doing events, raiding, and killing mobs in farmzones.
- Players can use these special Christmas socks in the temporary GM Shop Christmas section.
- Also players can use their socks on the temporary Dimensional Portal now spawned in Giran. Remember this is the only way to get special Christmas weapon glow and to get the Christmas Cloak!
- Added Dragon Weapon unlock button directly to the Ambition section of the Gm Shop to help prevent confusion, note you can also do it in .dressme.
- Updated the Connect section of the website a bit more to help make it more user friendly.
- Added a new library section for Ambitious Tasks to help give an overview on them, you can get there by going to www.L2Equanimity.com/pages/ambitious_tasks.php.
- Cleaned up several library sections on the website.
- Fixed an issue with removing SA at the Ambition section of the GM Shop, it was linked to the wrong shop ID.
- Client Version 5.6 has been released, you will need this update to see several of the new things released, please use the auto updater, or download the new patch.
- Clan Ambition system has been added.
- Our new clan Ambition system is a way to reward castle owning clans, but also encourage clans to have fun together and work towards a common goal. Every day a castle owning clan leader will receive an Ambitious Task Scroll, the Scroll will describe some sort of task your clan has to do (for example get 100 PvP coins, or get 120 rebirth feathers, or sacrifice 15k clan rep points, or get a certain quantity of clan items such as Dragon Eggs, or kill a bunch of mobs in FoW, etc there is currently 23 different tasks, and more will be added in the future. The task you will be be given is random, and you have up to 7 days to complete that task. If you do, your castle leader can turn it in for 10 Scrolls of Ambition. Some tasks are harder then others and some may need some tweaking. Remember, you will get a new task everyday. So every week you can get up to 70 Scrolls of Ambition.
- A special area of the GM Shop has been added for Scrolls of Ambition.
- Dragon Claw Weapons for .dressme have been added. (thank you lirael for the textures). Please note these are just skins, they dont give you stats or any sort of advantage. They are purely cosmetic, fun, and for bragging rights of course.
- Dragon Claw dressme skins can be unlocked with Scrolls of Ambition. Its 70 Scrolls for a basic version of a dragon weapon, and its an additional 70 Scrolls of Ambition to unlock the aura for it, so a dragon claw weapon skin with an aura is a total of 140 ambition scrolls, we kinda think the basic versions are cooler though, you can be the judge.
- Players can now Change SAs on their weapons (or add one to a MW weapon for example) through the Scroll of Ambition section of the GM Shop with out losing any enchants, elements, or augments, this takes 30 Scrolls of Ambition.
- Scrolls of Ambition can be traded/sold to other players. So if you are not interested in these cosmetic items, you can simply sell them to other players.
- Task Scrolls can not be traded, they are bound to the clan leader, and again, they disappear after 7 days.
- We have many more features planned for Scrolls of Ambition, so its a good idea to stock up on them, they will be used for many other things in the future.
- A list of all Clan Ambition tasks will be on the site soon, we will let you know. We realize some people have a huge stockpile of specific items/assets such as clan rep, clan eggs, Blood Werewolfs, Silver Fairys etc. Thats fine, however, with this system we plan on using up these stockpiles and thus creating more value for these items, and to make more activities worthwhile.
- There is no dragon weapons for rapiers or ancient swords, this is not a bug, on retail they merged classes and got rid of the need of rapiers and ancient swords, we are sorry for any inconvenience.
- Their are Dual Blunt dragon weapons, but Dual Blunt weapons dont exist on our server, so we made them a skin for dual swords, cause their animations match the best.
- The augment section of our website has been drastically updated, it gives all the details of each augment now, check it out! Thanks GM Reaper91.
- Skill descriptions were updated for all max level augments that did not contain all important information, such as percents that they give, you will need our newest patch to see this. Thanks GM Reaper91.
- Daily Quests have been added, for now only a few, they are: Participate 5 times in oly per day, and to kill 50 mobs in FoW per day, you get a special quest item for doing them, and you can get a prize sack at the Luxury section of the GM Shop, it has either GCM/Top LS/2 GC in it, all at equal rates.
- Daily quests reset every day at 12:00 AM server time.
- Some Ambitious Tasks require your clan as a whole to get a items collectively that are not tradable, like rebirth feathers, PvP coins and daily quest items. The special Scroll of Ambition section of the GM shop can be used to contribute these non tradable items for ambitious tasks to your clan leader, but they will not be usable for the clan leader other then for that Ambitious Task. For example, if you contributed Rebirth Feathers to your clan leader, it wont let them use it for rebirth skills, only for Ambitious Tasks.
- Misc client side typos/issues fixed such as Moirai MW shield saying m def, it should and now says Magic Resistance, and Vesper Noble PvP Breastplate description in regards to bonuses will now light up with MW Vesper Shield.
- Fixed the issue where some PvP Streak messages were not showing the players anonymous name if they had PvP Anonymous mode on in FoW. Thanks for reporting!
- Updated automated blocking/auto ban procedure/code for advertisers from other servers.
- Updated Noblesse quest guide to include the fact that we support the old version of the quest in regards to crimson moss, meaning you can also go to swamp of screams for crimson moss rather than cemetery.
- Updated the system message for sending mail to include who you sent it to, to help prevent errors and give you a chance to cancel it if it was wrong.
- Cleanse now only removes up to 2 debuffs at a time, this is subject to change.
- Symbol of Noise now takes away Dances/Songs for 45 seconds each trigger, instead of 30.
- Made several user friendly improvements to the registration process for creating a game account, and activating it.
- Updated the How To Connect page with useful information, like our install guide, and how to contact staff.
- Fixed an issue where certain user friendly features with account creation/password changing on the website stopped working (making sure passwords matched in real time, account name available in real time, making sure password is strong enough in real time), google relocated jquery libraries to github, we just downloaded the source instead to prevent further hiccups.
- NPC themes have returned to normal.
- As always everything is subject to change, if you dont like something, dont freak out. Also there could be bugs somewhere, if you find one, please let us know! We want to keep on improving our great server.
- Patch version v5.5 is now available, you will need it to be able to see some of our updates properly, we have had reports that some people are not getting the update with the updater, you may need to use the patch instead, we will get this fixed soon.
- We have updated Subclass Certification skills, many skills were not used, cause they were not that good. We are trying to change that. The not so good/less common certification skills have been boosted, such as Summoner Ability Boost HP/CP, Warrior Ability Boost CP, Master Ability - Magic Defense, Mystic Ability - Man Steal Steal, Wizard Ability - Main Gain, Master Ability Empower, Master Ability - Casting, and many more, basically if it was not used, it was likely boosted.
- We have added brand new subclass certification skills to help make things more interesting and increase build diversity. They are Wizard Ability - Transmutation, increases Adena rate by 5%. Rogue Ability - Massacre, its an AoE trigger skill that bleeds. Enchanter Ability - Embow, it adds an extra buff slot. Knight Ability - Protection - Gives a trigger buff that triggers for the whole party to give P def and M def (8%). Warrior Ability - Tantrum, trigger skill that increases p atk, m atk, cast speed, attack speed, but sacrifices p def, m def and evasion. This is also included in our new online guide.
- We added a new section to our websites library to show the exact stats of each certification skill, that way you can figure out which one you want easier. at www.L2Equanimity.com/pages/subclass_certification or check our library.
- We have updated skill descriptions of subclass certification skills to include exact stats that they give download it to see our new certification skills, for example Warrior Ability Haste gives 30% attack speed, for 15 seconds, with a 1% trigger rate.
