July 11 Maintenance Postponed

Due to various ongoing backend changes on the servers and website, server maintenance for July 11, 2012 is being postponed by one day, until July 12. Stay tuned for a maintenance notice tomorrow that will announce the revised maintenance schedule.

What is happening on Wednesday, July 11:

  • The servers will not have scheduled downtime.
  • Vitality will be refilled at 6:30am server time. This is now an automatic weekly process that does not require maintenance, therefore Vitality will not be refilled during the maintenance of July 12.
  • As previously announced, the Appearance Stones will leave the L2 Store at 8am server time. They will leave the L2 Galleria at noon PDT. Due to the unexpected postponing of this maintenance, the Restoration Stones will also leave the L2 Store at 8am server time, but they will return to the store at the end of tomorrow’s maintenance. The Exploration Pack bonus items will not change until July 12.
  • The Tauti Launch Kickoff perks end at 7am PDT. At this time, the News Informer and Event Gatekeeper NPCs will leave the game.
  • The Birth of Draco event NPC will leave the game at 7am PDT. This means it will no longer be possible to trade in Shattered Egg Shells, so be sure to do that before this time.
  • The Birth of Draco event items scheduled for deletion on July 11 will not be deleted. They will remain in the game an extra day, until the maintenance of July 12. The list of items to be removed on July 12 can be found on the event page.
  • As thanks and compensation to our players for bearing with us during the server crash issues of the past week (now resolved), conventional Gatekeepers (not Primeval Isle guy) continue to offer free teleports for an additional week, and Angel Cat returns to the game for a week.
    • Angel Cat will leave the game and Gatekeepers will resume charging for teleports on July 18, 2012.
    • Angel Cat will arrive in-game at noon PDT on Wednesday, July 11. He gives the Angel Cat’s Blessing item. Players can obtain one of these items per game account per day. The item is not tradable so you must claim the item on the character you wish to use it on. The item lasts 30 days and you can consume it when you like in that time.
    • Angel Cat’s Blessing: For 60 minutes, increases M. Atk. by 20%, P. Atk., P. Def., M. Def., Atk. Spd., Casting Speed, and Max HP and MP by 5%, and XP and SP gained through hunting by 30%. No reuse time.

Lastly, please note that the maintenance of July 12 will be an extended one, beginning earlier and possibly ending later than the normal time frame. The full details about the maintenance and what changes it is bringing will be posted tomorrow, however rest assured that the changes are passive and will not impact any players in a forceful manner.
