Lightbulb Server Maintenance 10 - 16 - 2013

All game servers will be down for maintenance on Wednesday, October 16th, 2013, at 5am PDT / 7am CDT / 8am EDT / 12pm UTC/GMT. Estimated downtime is approximately 4 hours.

With this maintenance:
  • Fall Crafting Festival continues until October 23rd.
  • Halloween Adena Art contest is in full swing. Create your in-game work of art and compete for great prizes.
  • Prestige Pack subscribers as of October 9th, 05:00am PDT will receive a Drop Rate Rune 100% (7-day) on their highest level character on each server as a compensation for the extended downtime during the October 9th maintenance.
  • Bug Fixes and Changes:
    • Fixed issue in which AoE skills such as Poison Zone and Shadow Snare wouldn’t work in the dimensional siege server.
    • Fixed issue in which clan permissions wouldn’t work normally in the dimensional siege server.
    • Fixed issue in which you only see a blank window when talking with the Dimensional Emissary as a normal clan member (not clan leader) in the dimensional server siege.
    • Changed the respawn time of the Nerva Orc Merchant from 15 minutes to 90 minutes.
If you have any questions about the changes taking place during tomorrow's maintenance, please feel free to post them here.

NC, why the hell do you keep nerfing the Merchants? Too many adena flowing in the players' coin purses?

yeah why you continue make custom ninja patches guys? as i know on korean servers there is no such a nerfing of mobs. i will not QQ but this is rediculus. so let make calculations where u can make money:

from bosses drop is - bless enchant and unbind (useless)
from normal drop - u make 1000 adena in best option
from quests - only under 85 not awakened , and money are low too
from kartia reward - u got stone and fragment (useless again no more bound)

but not only money are fuu.cked up, drop is too..
u cant get any boss jewel becouse they stop drop , maybe only with drop rune. you are lucky if u have istina/octavis shirt

Uhm ... isn't better just delete Merchants? Honestly i have no idea why your tech team or those people who care about bugs, bother with something like this. There is lot of significant problems in this game and you guys "fix" respawn of mobs in Gainak.

And because you block thread about Halloween Adena Art event i will ask you here - yes, you don't ask us where from we are, but in event rules it's very specific. Or you want us broke rules?

As this picture is showing, they released epeisodeon on 22 may 2013
and on 10.10.2013 they applied this patch. This is 5 months after the epeisodeon that we not play still.
So this patch should normal be released delayed as the epeisodeon+5 months ,not now before it.

If NCWest would handle the bots like they do at Innova they wouldn't had needed to cut down quest rewards till lv80 by 75%, they wouldn't had needed cut down adena drops by monsters by 25-45%. On the side-note, ever since C3 adena drop been adjusted each update to create a more even drop amount all across the map. Also, ever since C5 all drops on all raids have been gotten lower chance to counter farm teams. But I have to admit, having a droprate for an epic jewel being 1/200 (thanks Juji for the test) while before Lindvior it was more like 1/50 is insane, especially with no other drop than enchants/unbinds. The lack of material and recipe drops and spoil from all mobs is making crafting already hard enough increasing the price on gear unneededly high.

Anyway... All over the Episodion patch notes is stated that Raiders Crossroads is adjusted to fit a better play experience. The Nerva Merchant should be a reward on top of your grind, not the only thing you grind on. Stop b-ing around about one mob and start playing the game the correct way; hardcore grind. Also, I rather spend 3hrs in Hellfire, Orbis or Guilotine than doing 3hrs of RC. Raiders has no side drop, no spoils and skimpy adena if you don't kill a Merchant every time it pops.

Soon the mysterious mobs in Gainak will be nerfed too, so brace yourselves.

These merchants needed a nerf, I know ppl that were farming like 600m/day from them, which is quite stupid, because there is no other such mob in the game.

Otherwise yea, expect the adena pack in the nearest L2store, very soon.

I don't complain about Gainak or Merchants, i just did't get why we have fixes like this one instead of important ones.

Out of all the things wrong with the game currently this really was #1 priority...

The last source of R99 weapons is now mega-uber nerfed ...

So after all the server problems and issues over the past years another NCsoft blow below the belt.
How do you expect high players to gather money for dark eternal stones / OE skills or anything? Merchants were the only good source to supply funds for that.
Instead you will just add more A gemstones to your paytowinstore.

Not cool ncsoft, not cool.
