The skill descriptions need to be changed, they still have the old ones. It is inexcusable that the skills work so differently from the in game descriptions.

About Wynn : Those feature are not even announced in Korea, they are just in project for the futur wynn summon changes and actually discussed (it's only about the division of class and have been posted yesterday on official L2 Korea website). Do you seriously think that having 2 summons with 21k matk is the same than 3 summons with 16k matk ?
Please, don't act like you think that it's just something you didn't saw, everything is messed up and don't expect every summoner will accept that you suddenly decided in 3h maintenance that you will lower ammount of summons while it's not even the case in Korea.

Due to the unexpected changes to the summoner class, will NCsoft extend the courtesy of offering current Wynn Summoners the option to change to a different class?

Thank You

I think that if this had been announced on Korea patch note that would have been discussed a lot on our boards since a long time, but nobody was aware about thoses changes in Korea.

Plus as said Yuale, the summon number diminusion is only in discussion as part of futur class division update in Korea...


Sace i think you should double check with NCKR if they didn't sent you the wrong patch note instead of assuming all this is right...
And BTW you didn't say a single word regarding all the bugged instances ?

That is not true, and please do not attempt to spread false rumors such as this. It was not decided by NCsoft West to implement any such changes. Currently we are discussing the matter with our superiors and we strive to understand what happened and why, and determine what steps follow. This is an upsetting experience for both players and staff, but please remain patient while we continue to look into this. We will post again once we have updates to share.

It's true that it's not even lie at Korea? If it is, this must be a joke...

You can see the list of Korean update there :

http://lineage2.plaync.co.kr/board/update/list

Even if you don't read Korean, you may be able to run it through Google Translate. So far I found nothing, but I may search the bad way

Well only reason to keep lvling the superior summon mastery skill would prolly be the "when you recieve damage, your servitors battle skills are increased" part..... and hope lvling it, will increase that buff

This topic is going to be covered in the maintenance thread only, as it is not related to the unexpected patches.

As these changes were not expected some localization work is indeed now out of date. This matter is one of the things we are discussing so that it can be rectified.

There are high chances they got the patch note after the maintenance while asking an other department what are those unexpected changes
