[English] L2 Aurakyria: Patch Notes

L2 Aurakyria - GRACIA EPILOGUE PATCH NOTES
   
[Image: 1zekveu.png]
 



In this section you will be able to find a complete list of changes for the Gracia Epilogue chronicle. If you are coming from a Gracia Final server, this list will be useful to find out exactly what's changed from there. Besides, here you will be able to find (in red) all the modifications made by the L2 Aurakyria Staff!

What's Gracia Epilogue?

Gracia Epilogue is the chronicle which follows after Gracia Final. This game update has several changes, specially to the leveling and gearing pacing in order to reach the endgame in a shorter amount of time.
For example, thanks to the new leveling zones, characters who find themselves playing alone or for short amounts of time, are perfectly able to reach LVL 85 and gear themselves up with S80+ items. This amplifies the chances for every character and generates a faster refill for the high level players pool.

This chronicle is greatly centered in LVL 80+ content. In practically every new zone you will be able to find quests (and spoil) to obtain Recipes/Keys for S80 gear. The first set of 7Signs quests (the ones belonging to Gracia Epilogue) are now in the game too, providing a large amount of experience, specially because in L2 Aurakyria we have set their XP/SP rates to x3 in order for them to take you to LVL 80 faster than before, which is where the real action begins! Furthermore, the changes made to the Clan Luck skill make you lose even less experience on death, and if you have an active clan war, the exp loss is negligible.
Even the elusive S84 Vesper sets are now slightly easier to obtain, since Ekimus is more accesible and these are now also drops from the LVL 83 instanced Zaken fight.

In addition to other modifications that allow a greater quality of life and general skill balancing, Gracia Epilogue promises to be a really interesting update for all kinds of Lineage II players, wether they are casual or competitive.

Among this panel's functions, you will be able to find the following:

- Learn Skills: The days of having to return to the city to learn skills are over! Using our panel you will be able to open the Learn Skills window at any part of the map.

All Donation Manager related shops are now included in this panel: accesories (hats, agathions), runes, mounts, cosmetic transformations and more: you will be able to purchase them wherever you want!

These items can be farmed in the Varka/Ketra zones and traded to other characters.

Mail system

The new mail system (which can be accessed from the bottom left menu or through the /mailbox command) has been added in order to strengthen the player community and to increase the convenience of item trade. Through the Mail System, messages as well as items can be easily sent to other players.

[Image: mailsystem.jpg]

  • Regular mail allows players to send a message to other players with or without an attached item. Once the mail is sent, it can be checked by the recipient from the mail icon that appears on their screen. The cost for this type of mail is assumed by the player sending the mail.
  • Payment Request (also known as C.O.D) mail contains an attached item, and in order to retrieve the item the recipient needs to return the requested amount of Adena to the sender.
  • You can access your mailbox by clicking the mail icon at the top of the system menu (Alt + X) or by typing /mailbox in your chat window.
  • A maximum of 8 items can be attached to each message and postage will increase depending on the weight of the attached items.
  • Sending and receiving mail is only available in a peace zone.
  • Mail will arrive at the recipient after 30 seconds.
  • Sent mail can be cancelled if the recipient has not yet opened the mail, if the mail has yet to be delivered, or if an attached item has not been claimed.
  • You must click on the Mail Type dropdown box in order to send COD mail.
  • The COD sender will receive the requested amount of adena directly in their inventory once the recipient hits the pay button. This happens almost instantly.
  • The mail icon will appear when you have new mail and you can click this icon to check your newly received mail. The mail icon appears just above your chat window.
  • An attached item cannot be claimed when you do not have enough available inventory slots or when receiving those items would cause your weight gauge to exceed 100%. Clicking on the pay button will allow you to claim the item sent to you. Once you click this button, the corresponding amount of adena disappears from your inventory.
  • Regular mail without an attached item cannot be returned. This type of mail can only be received or deleted. You must open the mail first before it can be deleted.
  • Mail with an attached item can be returned or received, but it cannot be deleted.
  • Unchecked mail will automatically be returned after 15 days. Please note that mail without an attached item will be automatically deleted, not returned.
  • Unchecked returned mail will be automatically deleted and the item will be transferred to the private warehouse after 15 days. Payment Requests will be automatically returned if not accepted within 12 hours.

Skills




New System: Skill transfer. It is designed to expand the usefulness of healers in party situations.
  • This system allows the dedicated healer classes (Cardinal, Eva's Saint, Shillien Saint) to acquire skills from the other two healer classes. For example: Skill Transfer would allow a Cardinal to learn the skill Party Recall. Or it would allow a Shillien Saint to learn the skill Mass Resurrection.
  • Skill Transfer can be learned through the usual class trainer NPC's (priest, high priest, magister, etc.). One Holy Pomander is required to learn each skill. One Holy Pomander is received as a 3rd class change quest reward for Eva's Saints and Cardinals, but Shillien Saints get four of them.
  • Skills acquired through this means can be removed by a skill trainer for 10,000,000 adena. The Holy Pomander spent on the skill will be returned when the skill is removed.
  • Some skills acquired through Skill Transfer can be enchanted.
  • Subclassed healers can also take advantage of Skill Transfer as long as they meet the requirements.

Hunting Zones



In Gracia Epilogue you will be able to find numerous changes to several high level zones, allowing for a greater variety in gameplay and more options from where to get S80 gear. Don't miss any details!

- The drop tables from a lot of spots have been changed to include S-Grade items instead of A-Grade.
- Elemental stones have been added as drops on several spots, old and new. Click here in order to see which ones(Notes: Each color belongs to a different stone: Red - Fire Stone, Blue - Water Stone, Brown - Earth Stone, Green - Wind Stone, Purple - Dark Stone, Gray - Holy Stone. All mobs who used to drop stones before are still dropping them now).



- Updated Hunting Zone: PRIMEVAL ISLE
  • All mobs are now weaker than before and drop S-Grade weapons and keys instead of A-Grade.
  • The 'A Powerful Primeval Creature' quest has been updated to include Dynasty Weapon recipes for 600 items each.

- Updated Hunting Zone: FORGE OF THE GODS
  • The spawn rate of mobs has been increased and some of them will no longer multiply. 
  • When dying, they can now spawn a Lavasaurus.
  • Their social aggro range is now extremely wide.
  • New 'Tar Beetle' mobs will spawn in the zone. These mobs are immortal and will annoyingly debuff players who stay close.

- New Hunting Zone: DELUSION CHAMBER
  • The progression method for the Delusion Chamber is similar to the Dimensional Rift. You can gain access to this area by speaking to the Pathfinder Worker NPC in each town.
  • A minimum of 2 characters are required to enter Delusion Chamber.
  • Players must speak with the Guardian NPC to select a Seal to enter.
  • Each Seal consists of roughly 6 levels, each level lasting anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes.
  • There is a chance that during the last 5 minutes of the instance you will be moved to a final room containing a Raid Boss, Aenkinel.
  • Killing the Raid Boss will drop "Guiding Tea Leaves" which can be used to purchase Dynasty Armor and Accessories from the Guardian NPC.
  • 4 Nihil Invader Treasure Chests will spawn after the Raid Boss is killed. 1 Chest will provide items while the other 3 will not provide anything. You must choose your chest wisely since selecting the incorrect chest will cause the remaining chests to disappear.

- New Hunting Zone: DEN OF EVIL --(Recommended for melee Fighters)
  • Mobs in this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 35).
  • This place is ideal for soloing as the mobs aren't very tough.
  • Several giant eyes found around the orc camps will give you beneficial buffs, but if you stay too long in the same spot, it will evolve into an annoying debuff with a 10-minute duration.
  • Mobs in this zone are granting +37% EXP and +16% SP than normal.
  • A new quest has been added: 'Expulsion of Evil Spirits' (80+). Farming mobs in this zone will grant you Ragna Orc Amulets, which can be traded for Heavy/Light Dynasty Recipes.

- New Hunting Zone: MITHRIL MINES --(Recommended for Archers)
  • Mobs in this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 20).
  • This place is ideal for archers,  since the mobs are weak towards bows/crossbows and resistant to everything else.
  • Mobs in this zone are granting +37% EXP and +16% SP than normal.
  • Mobs in this zone drop War Plans, which can be traded for clan fame, blood oaths, blood alliances and are needed to learn Clan Luck.
  • 3 new quests have been added for lvl 80+ characters. The most important of them is 'Take Advantage of the Crisis', which simply consists in farming mobs and gathering Mineral Fragments, which can be later exchanged for Light Dynasty Recipes.
  • The other quests are 'Lucien's Altar' which gives a small amount of XP/SP/Adena, and the daily 'Grave Robber Rescue' which consists in freeing 10 friendly mobs from the zone in order to obtain a small amount of adena.
- New Hunting Zone: GIANT'S CAVE --(Recommended for melee Fighters)
  • Mobs in this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 65).
  • Mobs in this zone drop War Plans, which can be traded for clan fame, blood oaths, blood alliances and are needed to learn Clan Luck.
  • Previously existing quests from this zone can no longer be completed.
  • A new version of the 'Exploration of the Giant's Cave (78+)' quest has been added: it now has Dynasty Weapon Recipes as a reward instead of A-Grade ones.
  • A new quest, called 'Control Device of the Giants (79+)' consists in killing all the raids from the zone in order to obtain a box with Ancient Adena on it.
- New Hunting Zone: STAKATO NEST --(Recommended for melee Fighters)
  • Mobs in this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 70).
  • Mobs in this zone drop Stakato Eggs, which can be traded for fame or 'The Box' at the Bael NPC in Giran.
  • The zone's main Raid Boss, 'Queen Shyeed', will constantly buff the stakatos with a stat-increasing ability called 'Full Authority'. When dying, this buff will start being applied to the players instead.
  • Two new quests have been added: the first one, 'I'm the Only One You Can Trust (81+)' consists in killing Spiked Stakatos and Cannibalistic Stakatos until you get 25 Stakato Fangs. The reward isn't that big, but it unlocks the second quest: 'Only What Remains (81+)'. This quest will ask you to farm mobs in the zone until you get at least 500 Dirty Beads. Whenever you take 500 beads to the NPC in the entrance, you will receive a Growth Accelerator. This one-time use item can be used in one of the eggs found deep in the nest.
  • Opening those eggs will spawn a mini-Raid Boss: Cannibalistic Stakato Chief, which will drop a Small Stakato Cocoon or a Large Stakato Cocoon when it dies.
  • Those cocoons contain items inside:

- New Hunting Zone: FIELDS OF WHISPERS / FIELDS OF SILENCE --(Recommended for Mages)
  • Mobs in this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 35).
  • Mobs in the northern and southern areas of this zone (robots and ghosts) drop War Plans, which can be traded for clan fame, blood oaths, blood alliances and are needed to learn Clan Luck.
  • Mobs in the center of this zone (mucrokians) drop Mucrokian Eggs, which can be traded for fame or 'The Box' at the Bael NPC in Giran.
  • Mobs in this zone are granting +37% EXP and +16% SP than normal.
  • When killing mobs in these zones, there is a chance of obtaining a special herb:

- New herb: Guide. +250 Speed for 1 minute. (Note: The maximum amount of Speed a character can have is 250).
- New herb: Immortal. Invulnerability for 1 minute.
- New herb: Slayer. The owner can 1-shot any normal mob from the zone, for 1 minute. (Note: It won't work if the player's level is less than 78).
- New herb: Terminator. +70% Casting Spd. for 1 minute.

  • The way these zones are handled is similar to the Varka/Ketra system: players have to choose between farming in the Fields of Whispers or the Fields of Silence. The rewards are the same for both of them, but either way you have to pick one.
  • This choice comes after taking the 'Winds of Change (82+)' quest, which consists in talking with several NPCs in Heine. When finishing it, if you choose to help Dr. Helvetica, you will have to farm in the Fields of Whispers. If, instead, you choose to help Athenia, you will have to farm in the Fields of Silence.
  • Both zones have two quests ('For a Good Cause' and 'Reed Field Maintenance') which consist on killing mucrokians in the center area in order to get Mucrokian Hides. These items can be later exchanged for Robe Dynasty Recipes and Jewelry of your choosing, or random keys for those.
  • Another additional pair of quests are 'Won't you Join Us?' and 'Success/Failure of Business' respectively, which consist in killing mobs outside the center area. The reward for these quests isn't very big, but once they are finished, all the Dynasty item rewards from the previous quests will be cheaper.


- New Hunting Zone: CRYPTS OF DISGRACE --(Recommended for melee Fighters with pole)
  • Mobs from this zone have been updated to be lvl 80+ (up from 35).
  • This zone is ideal for farming with poles, since the mobs are weak towards them and extremely resistant to everything else.
  • Farming in this zone will grant players with a buff that increases Critical Rate.
  • A new quest has been added: 'Ghosts of Batur (80+)', which consists in killing mobs in the area and gather Cursed Burial Items, which can be later exchanged for Dynasty Weapon Recipes.

Raid Bosses
 


Full Revamp: ZAKEN

The Grand Boss ZAKEN is now only accessible through an instance. In order to get to his ship you can now use a teleport from a new NPC located in Giran Harbor.

The instance has 3 different difficulties:
Daytime Zaken (lvl 78-85): For 9-27 characters. 1 hour time limit. It resets on wednesdays at 6:30 GMT -3. Some of his drops: Random vesper armor (15%), Vesper jewelry (50%), Zaken's Earring (0.09%). This instance will only be available after the first Seed of Infinity has opened and completed a full cycle.
Daytime Zaken (lvl 55-65): For 9-27 characters. 1 hour time limit. It resets on mondays, wednesdays and fridays at 6:30 GMT -3. Drops Zaken's Earring (0.09%).
Nighttime Zaken: For 27-72 characters. 6 hours time limit. It resets on wednesdays at 6:30 GMT -3. It has the highest drop chance for the Zaken's Earring (85%).

The following guide clearly explains how to do these new instances: https://ankontini.com/the-ultimate-zaken-guide/
