Default Is there a MAP?

Hi, guys! Is there a map of catacombs? I mean does it actually exist? For example, I need to find the way leading me to Raid Boss in Branded. Is that possible?
W8ing for answers, Thnks!

Are those maps accurate actually? Or do catas and necros change layout from time to time? Because we were trying to find path to some back rooms with my clannie in Branded and that other one same level, at Alligator island ... what's the name eh ... does not matter now. And the map was not what it was in game actually, speaking of Branded. There was no map for that on AI at all.

Necropolis of Sacrifice hasn't changed since it was released so I doubt they change.

The only site that I know of that has 100% accurate maps of all Cats and Necs is unmentionable on these forums. Its also the best site for item drop rates and mob locations.

Check you forum e-mail, Im sure a few people wont mind sending you the info there.

This is not meant to start a debate but I always wonder why people push that site when the reason it's unmentionable is two fold...first it advertises sales of adena. If you don't think buying and selling is a good idea, why support a place that does?

The second reason is that in order to get it's information it has a third party program on your system that gathers data. That's illegal.

I understand people are hungry for the exact drop percentage, but if you want to also stop the 'other' issues. Why recommend sites that promote them?

The maps in question are reasonable accurate but to my knowledge not totally. I've found a couple of spots where the map doesn't match the game. (Missing pathway or in the wrong location.) If you need the maps that bad, just print em out and make changes on the spots where they don't match the game. Maybe submit your changes to the sites you got the maps from so that the maps *are* accurate.

For me, I just use the maps to give me a general layout of the cats for the most part. I find that the 'scale' of them is so 'off' that I dislike using them directly.

As for the advertisments, I think they're really lame. But in Korea, they give their players the drop tables. Why don't we get them here? If people using a 3rd party program to get drop tables here is what we have to do, I'm 100% for it.

We do it too, we just get some general layout and "the rooms we want are NE from start" and that's enough for us to get there.

Blame my laziness to not writing chnages and posting map of that necropolis on AI

I have never found the Stratics information to be wrong. The ONLY thing they don't have on mobs is the drop percentage.

And thats the most important thing of all, the drop %

If I want to go spoil Animal bone I would sure want to know ahead of time that 1 mob spoils 1 animal bone time to time and the other spoils 5-10 animal bone almost all the time...... Its just common sense that you would want to know the drop/spoil rates.

Now, first, don't get me wrong, I would love to have that information, since I have a job and wasting time on something unproductive in game is the last thing I want to do. But, I have played a lot of games and I have never actually had one give you that information.

Seriously is there a game that does?

Although we're getting off-topic, I do want to address a common misconception: the official Lineage II Korea web site does not offer drop percentages or drop rates. The monster database offers a list of items that might be carried on the monster, but not the rate at which those items drop. That list of monsters/items is something I would love to add to our official Lineage II web site, and I still hope to do so in the future.

Additionally, it is my sincere hope that any site that offers adena sales, hacks, cheats, and/or third-party software would never be supported or endorsed by players. Sites of that nature are not linked to on the official message board or on official Lineage II fan sites.

Thanks Mystryl for the info. Like you and every other player I would like that have at least the drop tables posted on the Lineage 2 Offical Web Site. I think it is an invaluable tool to any players that works hard every single day to try to gather mats and parts to be able to craft equip.

It is unfortunate that such sites exist. Dont get me wrong, I dont support any of that. Take last week, I tried to sleep a pker in Gludin and he then pmed me and said " Not too bad, lvl XX sleep" I dont even want to know how he knew exactly what level my skills were at ><

I just find it unfortunate the only way of getting the drop rates would be to have a notebook and a pen and manually count how many mobs you kill and what drop you got and email someone with your info so he can put it on a web site.... talk about inconvinient.

EDIT: Going back to topic!!!!
When I have time I will post accurate maps of all Catacombs/Necropolis that I have confirmed the accuracy.... all drawn by me! (in the near future)
Stay tuned!
