Yo could you guys look into this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7UrYWsUvM0 video produced by borninhell zaken server if im not mistaken

Is this one of those ninja patches again Topaz damage being counted in the overall damage in oly? Any thought about it? I mean I'm not against it for sure since that makes tank have a fighting chance against dds in the damage department

Hide and topaz are broken and this is obvious since they were implemented.

I like the Topaz feature, it's perfect for our version of L2.

The topaz is only bad because you can't obtain it in game. If you could make this from mammon like other zones it would be amazing.

The concept is very solid IMO.
If a healer burns your MP, you have an option.
If a Tank wants to just be invincible for the entire god dam match, you have an option.

Personally I don't see the point of skills that zero out dmg in a game that is based on......doing dmg, in this case oly.

Be all that as it may, what makes the topaz seem OP isn't the topaz, its the perma-hide.

I've beaten hero tanks with my dagger using hide. This involves some luck as the skill has to crit 3x in a row for it to work. I felt like I was using an exploit. Although I was happy I got points off of a hero, I felt dirty about the win, and it takes of the enjoyment away when there is no challenge involved.

The seer is a pure perversion. There isn't even any luck involved. Hit the buttons in the right order and you win. Even at 99 with free gear they beat heroes.

What they are about to do with tanks healers skills, making them non or at the very least, less, spam-able needs to happen to hide skills. The dagger shouldn't be able to get lucky and hide for 5 min, and the seer shouldn't be able to be permanently hidden and untargetable.

Only children like push to win buttons.

Hello,

Regarding changes to Olympiad post match damage tally, this issue was reported as bug by L2RU in May and recently the fix was incorporated into the Global Version. But, we were not informed properly this change was included in a live release.

The fix addresses that the Damage Table at the end of a match did not display damage inflicted from effects such as Topaz or Kelbim's Weapon Skill. As far as we can tell the winner of a battle was already being calculated based on damage from these effects. Therefore the change should only be a cosmetic fix that better represents the battle damage being inflicted now.

This was verified by attacking a user with these kinds of skills only and still winning the battle despite inflicting 0 regular damage according to the post battle results (before the fix).

Thank You

Update us on Zaken timeline.. how is testing going? Based on what you said around the end of June 4-6 weeks of testing it before you guys can make it happen. Which means you should be nearly completed on the testing part. A lot of people waiting on this.. more regular updates or a set date would be nice.

The Topaz DMG did NOT count before as dmg in Olympiad. And now with some ninja patch or whatever it started counting and its ridiculously stupid... Daggers only have to do Hide-> Topaz->Hide->Topaz and win matches without even hitting the other person with a skill even once. The same counts for the ISS .. Stone->Topaz->Stone->Topaz and win games without even hitting once with the duals.

ITS RLLY ****** UP. FIX IT

PS: You also made the Hide on daggers 10 seconds cooldown? The skill is ready to use before the hide has disappeared.
GOOD JOB AT SPITTING IN PEOPLES FACES YET AGAIN. THANK U SO MUCH

I could not enter the game. Place the email, then send to my mail the new verification pin. I put it in and let me in ... but at the moment of choosing the server and the pj again asks me the same verification code and does not say that there is an error ... I rectify it 4 times and I am suspended for 8 hours ... Is the ping verification different?
