Finally some good top items cheap,. Carebears running out of excuses to not pvp now. Scripts gone, leveling is a lot easier, and everyone in ncwest should have a dark weapon in the next few months.

Yes, it's added to the Vitality Bonus like other similar items
(Erupting Potions / Vitality Stone Jewel)

Ex: +180% bonus with all 3 applied at the same time.

Finally dark/bloody weapon going mainstream, Why not reduce the price of tauti fragment to 50-100 as well this way enchanted tauti can be had at a reasonable price?

I already foresee parties of the type.
"Dimensional Warp + save VP.

As? If there are a lot of cheap players to the point of not spending their respective party cakes or vitality maintaining potions? Or do they think they'll sit there and dm waiting for the right time to get up and hit.

How I hate these new players with a new mindset, full of frills, honestly.

I doubt someone will actually XP in DW even after update xp boost because mobs are 102 and people after 102 will go exp somewhere else (factions, talismans, not annoying jumps/pauses/disconnects/bugs), and DW will be just for buff books (stage 1 codexes got solved) and bracelet.

I personally didnt use single XP boost item from compensation or any "free" item they gave, somehow I lost old grind-for-win mood long time ago.

Learn to Math.

Nothing about this is cheap. Either in Adena or USD.

I think people are saying they're more accessible because they can be RMT'd with less money, but that's still $900-1,000 of non-Gift purchases from the L2Store. Even if you put a 25% discount to account for "Bonus Hero Coin," that is still excessive for one item that will not turn a Carebear toon into a PvP-geared character. Even if you split this up over 12 months (not sure such a plan serves any use, since you will be even further behind by the time you can get it), the price is excessive for a F2P game. You're basically paying the equivalent of a Cell Phone bill to NCSoft monthly, for one item that still costs a ton to apply and may fail if you don't have a Blessed Weapon (how much does it cost to Bless an R99 weapon?).

Last time I checked, 1 NCoin was about 950K Adena. I think 1,000 HC is about 40K NCoin worth of non-gift purchases on the account. That's about 38B Adena. Even if you buy NCoin to sell tradeable items in game, the cost is still excessive, and you will always sell at a loss this way (i.e. throwing potentially $1-200 away).

Gear disparity between the PvPers and PvErs goes way beyond "do you have a PvP weapon." The average carebear would have to RMT [multiple] THOUSANDS of dollars worth of Adena just to catch up in gear, and they'll still need the levels to get competitive.

Finally won't phase the "Carebears" who simply aren't interested in being hardcore PvPers. Those people will get Bloody Stones and move on with their lives. They want to kill MOBs, not players - at least not outside of Seiges and other events that make it an objective. You will still be crying about the lack of PvP "competition." The Bloody Stones are even cheaper, and thus more economical for these people.

NCSoft is the reason why the game is like this. No level cap means that PvE players never reach a point where they are "done" leveling, so there is very little reason for them to look for an alternative way to spend their in-game time.

IMO, they should have just kept the max level at 99 or 100, and made Castle Sieges weekly thing while focusing on things like Group Olympiad, etc. I also think a level based matching system would be useful for Olympiad (would definitely get more people to play it). Don't match players with a level different > 2; and make it so that equipment cannot be changed once you've entered the instance.

If you actually want competitive servers and for players to be more into PvP, then you need to provide suggestions that make sense. Not just suggestions to change things that butthurt you when things don't go your way (clicking wars, and other nonsense) ;-)

i personally don't see this changing anything the 90% who cheated their way to over 103 by what ever means benefit . The lower legit players who cant spend as much lose again . instead of trying to balance the game i just see this update as another missed chance to redress the balance . cry all you want on the forums and in game . get used to it in l2 cheating paid off and won . me personally i will happily carry on doing my own thing. but please stop crying if you have+16 gear and dragon weapons that no one will pvp you any normal player will lose every time against pvp geared op players . u want pvp get some normal gear and fight normal players lol

Isn't this 1h from now? I am gmt +2 and the servers just went down when they were supposed to go down at 14:00 GMT +2.

Since it was written there 12:00 GMT -> 14:00 GMT +2, yet the server went down 1h earlier.

I love the Mystic Soul Crystal and Dark Amar Stone price changes, totally makes those cheap now. I'd be ****** if I bought a 3rd SA soul crystal in the last month tho.... lol

I wish they added some other means to get Dark Eternal Stones tho. Gainak is the worst game mechanic for that. Oly, CoC, some other pvp based event should be able to have them as rewards aside from gainak.

overall, looking forward to this update.
