Harvey.. Oy

So most of you know I live in houston texas. Harvey has come and gone but man it wrecked a lot. I have not put ANY time into lineage recently. Work is till crazy and thanks to Harvery, it was compounded! But no flood damage to my home or vehicles, thank God.

 

Will follow up once I start back coding again. Thank you all for the patience.

    ha Adam, you and me both bro! I’m so craving Lineage. I’ve decided to just wait it out for LoA, and play other mmo’s in the meantime.

  2. RegressPuppy says:

    So if i paid for the server, would you guys be interested in setting up the server with the legends of Aden/ Anarchy files? I can’t seem to figure them out. Also need to find the client somewhere, but maybe PJ has it still.

  3. Dinin and so many more says:

    Heck if that server came back I would play it again… even better if my chars were there still… not so sure I would like to level up that many chars again…

  4. Icelance says:

    I would play if chars are intact but I think it’s been wiped. I also can not see myself do all I did all over again.

  5. RegressPuppy says:

    Personally I would be fine with a wiped server if that was what was available. I don’t think the database from Anarchy is around anymore if they lost the server/files.

  6. Icelance says:

    Yea I did like that sever. just about right, not too much customization except for dark elf getting too much love. It should be one or the other, not both dmg AND hp. (:

  7. RegressPuppy says:

    I think it would be cool to have more weapons available for dk and illu. Even just adding in something like a Thebes Chainsword/Kiringku would be helpful. On my own little playground server I made different weapons and modified others, so i know that isnt very difficult to do.

    It would suck to start from 0 again, but i think that would probly be the only way for it to gain population.

  8. Icelance says:

    Illy definitely needs a lot of help to be a viable class, more hp, more dmg. I think elf was fine, may be better fall down and slightly more hp, oh oh most of all, brave walking speed for all elements, hate to see water elf that helps bp/party so much suffer, dark elf had too much hp, may be slightly more dmg for full int mage.

  9. RegressPuppy says:

    I think mage damage was fine at full int. DE hitpoints were fine but the problem was mainly the beefed up weapons (which some of them definitely made sense) and Armor Break. Having a spell like that ingame on a client that wasn’t built for it made it extra powerful.

    Elf walking speed is something that should be normalized, and illu mainly just needs to not have half their damage disappear the moment they hit something with 100mr+.

  10. Dinin and so many more says:

    I wouldn’t worry too much about population tbh.. if the server comes back up, it is only to last until the real server is ready after all πŸ˜›

  11. RegressPuppy says:

    True, but with the holidays coming up I don’t see them getting much, if any, work done on Mythic. We haven’t had an update since Harvey made Texas its bish, but I know that they were saying they were busy beforehand. So it could still be another year to a year and a half out.

  12. Puddles says:

    I’m hyped. That was a good server. Fresh start seems to be the only option for obvious reasons. Would be a nice place to rest and relax while playing. Be nice to see some things tested that were discussed in the past. I have no suggestions other than, just do something simple and easy. We do not want to stress you guys out. Mother Nature did enough of that.

  13. Rabid says:

    I haven’t really looked into newer versions of lineage/not sure where this server is at, but do Illusionists have more than just the obsidian and crystal/sapphire (forget the name) kirinigku?

  14. Just to address some of the comments made:

    1.) We are still working, but mostly on less exciting things that really need to be done.

    2.) In response to Illu/DK not being viable, I have spent a LOT of time on item balance adding new weapons for these classes. We have also spent a lot of time discussing skills, and have made some significant changes. While I feel the classes still have their original feel/purpose, they should be completely viable options to play. Illu/DK will start with a chain sword/kiringku, have early options available in store/drops (like TSU/Ori/Etc for other classes), have rare powerful options, and have end game fidelity options.

    3.) DE Armor Break was OP. It won’t be in our server like that again. Current plan is to make it similar to erase magic, in that it will reduce an opponent’s AC for X amount of time. This will make them easier to hit and somewhat affect their overall DR (ac scaling values differ between classes). It won’t have an actual damage amplification effect. Obviously subject to change, but I doubt we will move away from this concept. It gives DE’s a solid combat debuff that is beneficial to others while remaining on theme for a high physical damage class. It won’t benefit magic damage at all, which AB previously did (and was part of the reason it was OP).

    ps: holy crap there is a lot of useless junk drops in the game, and items with wildly different drop rates for no reason. I’ve been working hard on cleaning up drop lists / creating new ones for items related to crafting (think gems, metals, etc). It’s been WAY more of a chore than I originally expected. The end result though should be a wide variety of useful crafting items with consistent/logical drop progressions. And no more (or at least less) worthless junk!

  15. RegressPuppy says:

    I remember when you guys did LoA that you guys removed all the useless junk drops which is part of what made it so great. Being able to hunt and not go “hmm i have 37 of X, 23 of Y, and 5 billion meat on me” was nice.

    It’s good to hear that weapon options and other work on DKs is still being done, I always enjoy playing Illu, but their damage being cut in half on anything with 100% MR is what stops most people from playing it.

    Armor Break was mainly OP because of how the client worked. Once I finished my Red Shadow and went to a fight with full buffs (Illu Buffs, Fire, Royal Buffs, Mage Buffs, My own buffs) and hit someone with armor break it wrecked people. We are talking 1200+ crit swings in pvp with non crit swings doing 500-600. Thankfully it didn’t work in PvE or I would have been able to solo Valakas even faster lol.

    While it is likely not known, and you don’t want to make any promises (especially because life always happens and holidays are coming up), do you have a rough ETA on some form of alpha/beta?

  16. Boom says:

    I know people have asked before but would you like help with tedious stupid stuff? I know people would love to help out. I am good at mind numbing work.

  17. Dinin and so many more says:

    You did not solo Valakas silly.. you used 2 acc’s to duo Lindvior. Which is impressive enough in itself I will admit.

      I was the only damage dealer for Valakas and Lindy. Granted Valakas was due to Chocolate Cakes, but I had 3D (Mugen, Asian, whatever else he goes by) as a mage to immune me and throw a few heals. After I killed Valakas the GM upped his HP to 5000 per second instead of 5000 per 5.
