I am very excited to read the patch notes this morning from NCWest for the May 2nd Maintenance Period. As a temporary fix against RMT the adena rewards from the 1-40 newbie quest series has been reduced to 1% of its original amount. I think NCWest has done a great move, and this should fix the thousands of little dwarfs running around making billions of adena per week for some unscrupulous abusers! I am interested to see just how far the server traffic falls when viewing it at http://www.kaifas.lt/LineageII-statistic/
The Letters event comes to a close today, you can still submit for the next week, but the letters are no longer dropping.
You can also now purchase the 8th Aniversary support back directly in side of game rather than needing to login to the website.
