Sicil: The Assassin

Yup, going to another server means starting from scratch. The good thing about this is that you'll be starting at level 0 with everyone else (that is until the botters get high in their levels). Anyway, as mentioned last time, I'll be re-rolling into an Assassin.

Meet Sicil:

I was able to get get to the second job in just a few hours thanks to this guide. Anyway, my next target is for him to become an Abyss Walker within fourteen (14) days; meaning he should level up twice in a day. Anyway, here I go!

Lineage 2 Final Gracia Korean Teaser Site

Last week, we had such a lot of info flooding the interwebz regarding Gracia Part 2. There were some changes though when we got the patch notes last week. Usually we'd be scrounging for info based on the L2 NA PTS boards regarding the upcoming patch, but now we got news that the Korean Final Gracia teaser site is up!

Re-rolling to Cadmus

As I mentioned a few days ago, the Cadmus server will be opening tomorrow, Oct. 21, 2 PM. However, that won't mean the end of Alcarcalimo: the Bladedancer, as I will still use him, although sparingly. I'll be re-rolling into Cadmus tomorrow as another character, same race, different job. I've had experience of being a buffer and "always at the back"--it's time for me to move up front.

Tomorrow, I become an Assassin.

Item Enchant Window

The interface for Item Enchantment has been made more intuitive.


  • A new instant item, "Vitality Replenishing Herb," has been added.
  • It gives you a 5 minute boost to your Vitality Level while hunting. During this 5 minutes, you gain the normal experience for killing a monster (regardless of your current Vitality level). However, also gain points in Vitality, allowing you to increase your Vitality level.
  • Vitality no longer decreases while hunting monsters for characters below level 9 who have the "Lucky" skill.

Mini-Game Addition

  • A simple and enjoyable mini-game has been added.
  • It can be accessed using the "/minigame" command or by clicking the "Mini-Game" icon in the Action Window.
  • The game requires you to create an icon chain of 3 in a row, either horizontally or vertically.

Changes to Existing Skills

  • Once the "Invincible" skill effect is applied, it cannot be re-applied for a certain amount of time. Related skills include: Celestial Shield, Flames of Invincibility, Sonic Barrier, Force Barrier, Servitor Barrier, Sublime Self-Sacrifice
  • The bug concerning HP/MP not being fully restored when a character is revived through the "Salvation" skill has been fixed.

Other Changes

  • An "Adventurers' Guide" NPC has been added to Hunters Village.
  • An "Underground Coliseum Helper" NPC has been added to the Underground Coliseum.
  • A bot reporting button has been added to the Actions window.
  • The Personal Teleport icon has been added to the Action Window under "Basic Actions." This button is not functional yet. But once it is, we will give you more information regarding its use.

Miscellaneous Fixes

  • The weight of common items has been reduced by 2/3.
  • The name of the "Double Cutter" skill, which can be used with the Demonic Sword Zariche, has been changed to: Power Slash - Inflicts a powerful slashing attack with the cursed sword.
  • The bug affecting the "Morning Star" item appearing twice in the shop sales list has been fixed.
  • The bug preventing changing a sealed Foundation or Masterwork Majestic Circlet Robe item into heavy armor has been fixed.
  • The bug preventing some dualswords from being normally refined has been fixed.
  • The bug concerning the Wolf Summoning Bracelet's total magic power not displaying properly has been fixed.
  • The bug concerning some Dynasty Armor shoulder decorations not equipping properly has been fixed.
  • While an item is being enchanted, it can no longer be dropped.
  • The incorrect effect explanations for some Dynasty armor sets have been fixed.
  • The following effects of the Dynasty Platinum - Force Master set item have been changed: Existing: Str +1, Dex +1, Con -2 / New: Str +2, Con -2
  • Demon's Gloves and Boots are now sold by vendor NPC’s.
  • The bug concerning ‘Chance’ augments triggering when an incorrect skill type is used has been fixed.
Honestly, I don't know how they will implement the bot reporting button, as this maybe abused by players who just want to hassle their clan enemies, but we'll see soon (if this gets implemented in L2 SEA as well!).

Lineage 2 NA Gracia Part 2 teaser site


It's up! After speculations on what will be included in the next update it seems that only a few have been added. Only the Vitality Point buffs, the new dungeons, and the new mini-game seems to be included. There's no mention of new pets or servitors, mounts, nor new headgears. It remains to be seen whether these will be in Gracia Part 3 or not at all.

Here's the teaser site for Lineage 2 Gracia Part 2.

Cadmus: New Lineage 2 SEA Server

The splash page is up at Lineage 2 SEA's site and we got a confirmed date as well. Cadmus will finally be opened. Concerns abound that players will transfer to the new server and both Aria and Blackbird's population will go down. This is an eventuality as players will want to rise in the new server and become Heroes or at least "legendary" toons.

Will I be transferring? Yes.

See you at Cadmus, folks!

More details here.
