A brief summary of our currently GM-only-but-soon-to-start Luna server.
What we will have:
XP: x3 (low-rate, all the other rates are set accordingly)
Vitality with reduced bonus (up to +80%)
No Nevit's Blessing
An up to 2 login for each IP. We will presume that each login from one IP is one separate person, meaning there will be no filtering in an olympiad, TvT etc. perspective. Nevertheless,we will not punish if the same person is behind the two logins.
The maximum level difference between two party members for XP farming is 10
Max enchant: +14 Armor, +16 Weapon
Like Scryde, there will be Apiga (as the Zero Hour does not fulfill the material farming purpose anymore)
Hunter mobs (like the Slayers of Scryde, but even stronger) will drop Event Medals - these can be exchanged for head accessories
Each and every monster has a slight chance to drop FA and Glittering Medal (raids drop the latter as well), these can be exchanged for premium head accessories, agathions, shirts, belts or Fame
B and A grade common exchange (2 common items + some Event Medals = standard item)
No floating level over the monsters' heads
The Newbie Guide will give buffs up till level 85, so nobody should feel neglected. Do not think of it as a buffer NPC though.
There is no delevel on the server; you will lose XP upon death, but you will not drop in level
.xpoff command works
Class change (first two for free, the third costs quite a bit)
Autolearn up till level 40
Soul Cry available in Luxory Shop for levels 11-12-13
What we will NOT have:
Many custom NPCs - there will be an item manager (common exchange, Apiga), a helper (FA/Event Medal/Glittering Medal) and a class changer and that's it
Mana potion, GGK, buffer NPC, buff juice, Multibox, easily obtainable 81+ skill books (Tiat, Beleth, some quests, olympiad or a large amount of Silver Shilen may help you out here)
The PK penalty is similar to that of Scryde, but as the amount of XP earned is just a fragment than on Scryde, so is the karma lost upon kills
SS / SPS / BSPS over C grade. This will make crafting more vital even in the beginning (and you will get XP for crafting as well)
Those who feel that a +16 weapon or a +14 armor is just not enough for them (on a 3x server, mind you) may collect event rewards for a Crystal Scroll or two. These scrolls have a 15% less enchant chance than the standard scrolls (and upon failure, the item is crystallized), but the upper limit for it is +99.
Our goal was to put together a playable, long-term and "real Lineage 2 experience"-ish server. We hope that with the 1st of September, all of you will like it.
