    So far I am not much concerned about the "instanced" word for Frintezza. In a stricly semantic way of speaking, Frintezza was always instanced. There was only one instance possible per respawn cycle however. May be it'll continue like that, with pvp to control the area to reach the npc !

    The context for this update is the curernt state of Korean servers. Clothes are farmable from Worldbosses, Monster Arena (solo), Clan Arena, drops from Ketra/Varka, and I heard about some quests providing some aswell. We are at the moment 4 patches behind so our state is much different.

    Comparing this patch to our current patch is not this useful imo, but it's nice to have a sneak peek of what's going on :)

    it's nice when devs isn't discriminate the region servers just because we don't have "item mall".
    And isn't nice to play with inaccessible content. Like antharas and unsealing A-grade.

    Yeah, you're right!
    Due to past years experience with L2 team and how they start to really like instances I get a default bad feeling when they speak of instances.

    The Update preview #1 was posted :​

    http://lineage2.plaync.com/classic/board/update/view?articleId=19751

    Please note this is a preview of an upcoming update not deplyed yet on the Korean servers. Things are subject to fixes, balance pass and changes. Don't take everything written there as absolute truths


    The arrival of S-Grade equipment : the best for you to fight against new forces

    The upgrade system has been added to Lineage II Classic. The upgrade system is available through the Aden Town Blacksmith Ferris.

    [​IMG]

    It is now possible to acquire S grade items via the upgrade system where you exchange over-enchanted A-Grade Weapon / Armor / Accessory :

    • Weapon : Between +12 and +35
    • Armor : Between +10 and +25
    • Accessories : Between +8 and +20

    Wait ! In addition to upgrading S grade items, it is also possible to echange D-A equipment and gain higher equipment. When you exchange such items, the resulting item will have -1 enchant level.


    The upgrade process goes as following : Through Blacksmith Ferris, you can exchange Special varnishes, Crystals and Adena to get one of the following item :

    • S grade finished product
    • S grade crafing box
    • Solid / Improved Enchant scrolls


    - The special varnishes needed are acquired via open field Raidbosses and World bosses
    - It is possible to upgrade sealed items, and the obtained items are sealed after the upgrade

    Just how farmable are those cloths in varka/silenos? Is there a reason not to have ancient adena instead?

    So for +10 we get Sgrade 0?? How is that a fair exchange even in korea? A +10 set would be so much more profitable than a +3 Sgrade...
    What i would consider fair is if it lost e.g. 2 enchant stages.. for a +10A u get a +8S.
    I like that you can exchange any A grade armor for S grade though. Makes good use of some easy to get and unpopular A grade equipment...

    From what I understand, it's A grade items Oe'd for clean S grade. And D/C/B OE'd items for -1 items of the next grade (or may be simply mid grade > top grade ?)

    The picture is confusing because of the short terms used, and its goal is more to make some waves rather than giving exact informations. I hope the patch notes will be more complete :)

    "Enchant an Ipos +12 and get an Enchantment Scroll"

    From our experience, overseas versions don't usually receive upgrade equipment options, so let's see how it turns out in the end..

    Seems like I made at least one mistake in the translation regarding sealed items :

    Previous translation
    Correct translation would be :
    Thanks to FatPunk who double checked my translation against a russian one and found the mistake ! I'll double check for other mistakes this week end :)

    For your information, the patch notes has been published :

    http://lineage2.plaync.com/classic/board/update/view?articleId=19784

    A full translation will be done shortly, a quick outlook is :

    - Frintezza raid & Jewel (4 levels)
    - New Four sepulchers instance "Hard mode" 80+ where you can get in the end S grade recipes
    - S grade weapons ,armors and jewels. There are recipes for those, at 30% success rate
    - Equipment upgrade system (very interesting !)
    - Increased the effect of overenchanting on weapon (damage) and armor (more hp, especially after +6)
    - Monster Arena & Mission system changes
    - Certification skill after level80
    - LOTS of new skill
