Server Maintenance: Tauti - June 13, 2012

All game servers, the account management functions, and the L2 Galleria website pages will be down for maintenance on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, at 5am PDT / 7am CDT / 8am EDT / 12pm UTC/GMT. Estimated downtime of the game servers is approximately 6 hours, and of the website pages is approximately 3 hours.

With this maintenance:

  • Goddess of Destruction: Tauti launches! As part of the game update the following changes will be made:
    • The News Informer NPC is placed in all major towns for one month. This NPC can be used to turn in quests that are being removed with this update and to redeem related items. Territory War badges can be exchanged for all previous territory-specific items. This does not include Territory War quests, or Noblesse; the Noblesse quest cannot be finished through the News Informer, and the News Informer will not grant Noblesse status in exchange for Territory War badges. There is a new (easy and improved!) Noblesse quest in Tauti.
    • The Event Gatekeeper NPC is placed in all major towns for one month, to offer teleports to some of the new or revamped areas.
    • With the changes to the Castle Siege system, all castles will become Castles of Light. Clans currently owning a castle will keep the castle, and can enjoy the Castle of Light benefits. Castle Siege scheduling proceeds on the same days as before: Chronos and Shilen will have their first Tauti Castle Sieges on June 17, and Naia, Magmeld, and Bartz will have theirs the following weekend, on June 24.
    • All Clan Insignias are removed due to image file size and format changes. Clan Insignias (can called Clan Marks) are the square image on a clan's shield and clan banners, not the small rectangular clan crest that appears next to character and NPC names.
  • To celebrate the launch of Tauti, players are treated to the following perks:
    • Free Teleports: All conventional Gatekeepers (not Primeval Isle guy, he's grumpy again) are offering free teleports to pre-established locations. This perk will last one month.
    • The Player Commendation Lottery begins! Every day, you can acquire one free PC Lottery ticket from the Adventure Guildsman NPC. When you use your lottery ticket, you will instantly win a 100, 1,000, 2,000, 10,000, or 100,000 PC Point voucher. Give the voucher to the Adventure Guildsman to redeem your PC Points as currency. If the amount of PC Points in your winning ticket will make your PC Point currency go over 200,000 (the maximum), you cannot redeem it. You can find out if you've won right away by clicking the ticket in your inventory; you must use your lottery tickets within 30 days. This event will last two weeks.
  • The Birth of Draco event begins! Learn all about it on the event page, and discuss it in its dedicated forum thread.
  • The L2 Galleria and L2 Store receive an update with new items! Check back on the maintenance day for details on what they are. *Update* Find out what the new items are!
  • The Stone of Destiny becomes unavailable in the L2 Store and L2 Galleria. All previously purchased Stones of Destiny will remain in the game.
