The 2nd Throne: Freya

Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Note


Freya & New Areas
Freya
Freya is a new raid boss for Lineage II. According to lore, Freya used to be a kind princess named Felicia. Her political enemies betrayed her, and in an attempt to kill her, she was transformed into Ice Queen Freya instead. Her loyal servant, Sirra, was transformed into Ice Fairy Sirra. Freya disappeared for years, during which time Ice Fairy Sirra ruled over the Frozen Labyrinth. Now that Freya has returned to power, Sirra is no longer a raid boss in Lineage II.

Seed of Annihilation
The Seed of Annihilation is an enormous parasitic creature that absorbs bioenergy through its roots. Istina, the mother creator, is a conscious entity that inhabits the Seed. She has a symbiotic relationship with the land. She uses the energy that she siphons from the earth to create the creatures that inhabit her host. Reach this challenging and awe-inspiring area by flight or by airship from the Keucereus Alliance Base, located far to the south of the Gracia continent.
Seed of Annihilation - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes

Zone Type: Party Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 85
The Seed of Annihilation is split into three areas: Bistakon, Reptilikon, and Kokracon. Players can hunt in these areas at all times, regardless of the Seed's status.

Each area has its own raid boss. They appear are set times or can be triggered by continuous hunting in their area.
Bistakon: Taklacan
Reptilikon: Torumba
Cokrakon: Dopagen
Entering each of these areas also bestows a buff that lets players inflict additional damage on the local monsters, depending on their class type.

The buffs are Efficacy of Strength (benefits melee classes), Efficacy of Agility (benefits archer classes), and Efficacy of Wisdom (benefits mage classes).
These buffs randomly are rearranged among the three areas at 1 p.m. CST every Monday. Thus, if Bistakon bestows the Efficacy of Strength buff one week, it will bestow a different buff the following week, and Efficacy of Strength will instead be available in one of the other two areas.
Sealed Vesper materials can be obtained in the Seed of Annihilation.

The new Maguen Pet can only be obtained inside the Seed of Annihilation. Speak to NPC Nemo for more information. Nemo is in front of the airship dock controller, just outside of the Seed.

Maguen Plasma Buffs:
Speak to NPC Nemo to receive the Maguen Plasma Collection device. When a monster is killed in the Seed of Annihilation, a Wild Maguen has a chance of appearing.
The Wild Maguen will display one of three different particle effects above its head. The color of each effect corresponds to the three different kinds of plasmas that can be collected and applied to a character as a buff using the Maguen Plasma Collection device. There are a large variety of plasma buffs.
The Wild Maguen will interact with only one randomly chosen party member. That character has 10 seconds to use the Maguen Plasma Collection device on the Wild Maguen. When the device is used, the character receives a plasma buff. Plasma buffs can be heightened in intensity, reaching up to level 3 of the buff, by collecting more plasma from more Wild Maguens. If a character gets to level 3 of a plasma buff, that individual buff has a chance to bestow a beneficial partywide buff.
Maguen Plasma Collection devices have a chance to overload on use and remove all the Maguen Plasma Buffs that have been collected so far.
While collecting Maguen plasmas, a Maguen Pet summoning item may drop randomly.

Sel Mahum Training Grounds
Zone Type: Solo Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 83-84
Sel Mahum Training Grounds - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


Sel Mahum Training Grounds Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes

The once empty area south of Oren is now populated with ranks upon ranks of Sel Mahum soldiers that are constantly training for battle. After losing territory battles with their cousins, the Oel Mahum, the Sel Mahum are planning to claim the Plains of the Lizardmen.

Many Sel Mahum soldiers operate on a daily schedule of eating, training, and resting. Their behavior follows their schedule.

The Sel Mahum are trained to defend as a group. If one of them is attacked, all other Sel Mahums nearby come to the defense.

Labyrinth of the Abyss

Revamped Hunting Grounds
Plains of the Lizardmen
Zone Type: Solo Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 83-84
This area is now geared toward high-level players, and hunting here is optimal for archer classes.

According to lore, the blood of the dragon Antharas has seeped into the ground of this area and transformed the local Lizardman population. The Tanta Lizardmen, as they are now called, are addicted to the toxic fumes emitted from strange glowing pillars.

Plains of the Lizardmen - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


Characters in this zone experience the toxicity as a debuff: the Curse of the Plains. This debuff lowers a character's HP, but increases its bow/crossbow abilities.
Herbs dropped in this region do not land on the ground as items. Instead, the herb buff effects are applied automatically after your character kills a creature.

Plains of the Lizardmen Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


Certain lesser creatures in this area can help or hinder characters:
The Rainbow Frog contains an enzyme that counteracts the Curse of the Plains.
The Energy Plant restores 70% of your character's health.
When you kill a Smash Fungus, all nearby monsters rush to the spot where it died and are dazed for a few seconds. Once the daze wears off, these monsters attack the characters that killed the Smash Fungus.
The Sticky Mushroom recovers 90% of a character's HP but causes immobility for 5 seconds.
The area boss Tanta Seer Ugoros can be defeated by a character player. The battle with him involves both his attacker and Ugoros using certain herbs to heal or hinder each other. This boss is involved in two new quests.


Beast Farm
Zone Type: Solo Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 83-84
This area was originally for level 63+ characters, but it has been adjusted to suit high-level characters, and a number of new quests have been added in the area.

Monsters can now be farmed for either experience or for Adena/items depending on the type of feed used on them. Characters can now purchase spice packs that contain up to 50 spices and a chance to obtain special feed. Special feed allows a character a chance to tame a monster with only one application.

Beast Farm Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes




Grendels have been added to the list of monsters in this area that can be fed until they become temporary pets. Multiple tamed pets can now be used by a single character. To control tamed pets on the Beast Farm, the character must have a Bull Whip, which can be obtained for free from NPC Tunatun.

Tamed beasts on the Beast Farm no longer heal or recharge.

Pavel Ruins
Zone Type: Solo or Party Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 70-72
Pavel Ruins is the location of a large and ancient research center that Dwarf and Dark Elf Exploration Teams have been studying for a long time. The mad scientist, Dr. Chaos, has arrived in the Pavel Ruins and become obsessed by his creature creations, the Golem Corps. Dr. Chaos also created the Golem Corps of Horrors with the help a young Dwarf girl named Dorothy.

The Strip Mines area is appropriate for solo characters. In the Strip Mines, after a monster's death, it is likely that additional monsters will appear near the dead monster.

Dr. Chaos' Research Center is a group encounter.

Monastery of Silence
Zone Type: Solo or Party Hunting Area
Recommended Level: 83-84
In this zone where peace and silence are prized, adventurers that are not armed with weapons may pass through without hostility from the monks. After a prolonged period of prayer and meditation, the priests of Einhasad who follow St. Solina have foreseen the end of the world. These priests pray to the gods to prevent this destruction. As if in answer to their prayers, a new angel has appeared in the top level of the Monastery. Rumor also says that a treasure is hidden between the Room of Secrets and Savior Solina herself. Adventurers that covet the Holy Grail might be lucky enough to find it here.

Interface
New Emotes
New social emotes allow two characters to participate in a dual emote. Characters can now exchange bows, high-five each other, and perform a synchronized couples dance. Go to the Freya preview site to see a video of all three new emotes.

These actions are initiated when one character targets another character and clicks on the social emote desired. The target character can then choose to accept or reject the action.
Slash commands can also be used to initiate the actions: /two-personbow, /hi-five, /coupledance.
When the distance between two characters is too far or too close, or there is an obstacle between them, the social emotes won't be performed.
When one character is in the process of performing some actions, such as PvP, a siege, the Olympiad, making a private store, using a workshop (manufacturing), or riding a pet, or if one character is in a transformation form, the social emote cannot be performed.
The Game System > Options menu now has a Reject Couple Actions option. When checked, all couple emote requests are automatically declined.

Community Window
Inside the in-game Community window, a new Homepage tab has been added. Clicking on the links on this tab open your web browser and take you to these pages on the official Lineage II website or forums. The links are:

Clan Recruitment Hall: A section on the forums where players can advertise and browse through clan listings and clan details in server-specific threads.
Latest News: A section on the website that shows you the most recent newsworthy items about the Lineage II game and community.
Account Services FAQ: A section on the website that lists and offers detailed information on all the account services that a player can purchase for an account.

Other Interface Changes
Party looting options can now be changed while in a party.
The process for registering a clan crest of alliance insignia has been updated: an additional UI window opens to allow the user to browse through the user's computer file system for the file needed.
Screenshots are now placed in a Screenshots folder instead of in the System folder.
The mail system has been updated so that players can check mail and open some letters while outside of peace zones. However, characters may not send or receive mail with attached items while in a nonpeace zone.




Recommendation System
The new recommendation system gives characters an additional XP rate bonus. It's a system based on recommendations, which are like points. Trade your recommendation points with others to increase each other's recommendation level and boost character XP rate!

Summary
The more recommendations a character has, the bigger its XP bonus is. The maximum is a 50% XP bonus for 1 hour.
Extend the XP bonus time or acquire more recommendations by visiting a Priest of Blessing NPC in any town.

How to Earn Recommendations
A character receives 20 recommendations automatically upon the first login of the day.
Receive an additional 10 recommendations to give out after 2 hours of being logged in, and 1 more recommendation to give out every hour after that.


Recommendation System Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


How to Use Recommendations
You cannot recommend your own character.
You can recommend the same character continuously without restarting or relogging the game.
You will receive an XP bonus from the recommendations your character earns from other players (max 50%). The maximum recommendations a character can receive is 255.


Number of recommendations Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


Bonus XP Time
The bonus XP duration is 1 hour from the moment you log in.
When the duration expires, the XP boost effect ends, regardless of how many recommendations your character has.

Daily Initialization
Every day at 6:30 a.m. Central Time (CT):
The number of recommendations a character can give out is reset to 0.
The XP bonus time is reset to 1 hour.
This does not remove the Nevit's Sandglass effect.
Each character loses 20 of its own recommendations.
Example 1: Character A can give out 40 recommendations and also has 40 recommendations himself. He also has a XP bonus time of 0. After 6:30 a.m. CT, Character A has 0 recommendations to give out, 20 remaining recommendations in effect for his character, and 1 hour of XP bonus time remaining.

Example 2: Character B can give out 1 recommendation and has 21 recommendations herself, and a XP bonus time of 40 minutes. After 6:30 a.m. CT, Character B has 0 recommendations to give out, 1 remaining recommendation for in effect for her character, and 1 hour of XP bonus time remaining.

Priest of Blessing
A Priest of Blessing has been placed in each town. The Priest of Blessing sells two useful items: Nevit's Voice and Nevit's Sandglass.

Priest of Blessing Freya - Lineage 2 Freya - Patch Notes


Every item can only be purchased once every 20 hours and is not tradable. This timer of 20 hours is shared between all characters on the same account.

Nevit's Voice
Cost: 100,000 Adena.
Stats: Raises a character's recommendation level by 10.

Nevit's Sandglass
This item grants additional XP bonus time. If, say, your character already has 30 minutes left on the daily recommendation XP bonus, which counts down as long as you are logged in, you can purchase this item to pause ("maintain") that countdown. During this time, your character gains XP at the level the bonus was paused at.
Cost: Depends on the character's XP level.
Stats: Maintains XP bonus time for 60, 90, 120, 150 or 180 minutes. (This number is decided randomly when the item is purchased.)
The item's effect is a buff that shows up in the new Recommendation System UI window as "Maintain."
Once the additional time runs out, the original XP bonus timer begins counting down once again.
This item has no cooldown time. However, you cannot use a second Sandglass if you already have the Nevit's Sandglass buff in effect.

Level 1-19: 4,000 Adena
Level 20-39: 30,000 Adena
Level 40-51: 110,000 Adena
Level 52-60: 310,000 Adena
Level 61-75: 970,000 Adena
Level 76-79 : 2,160,000 Adena
Level 80-85: 5,000,000 Adena

The chart above explains the boundaries between different level ranges. This is important when wanting to repurchase a Nevit's Sandglass after your character levels up.
The repurchase delay is set at 20 hours, and this time is shared between all characters on the same account. However, if you level up in a way that goes from one level range to another level range (according to the chart above), the timer is 0. (See below for an example.)
You can only use the Sandglass that matches your character's level. If you purchase a Nevit's Sandglass when your character is level 79 (for example) and you have not used the Sandglass yet when your character levels up to 80, you cannot use the Sandglass that was purchased prior to leveling up.
If your character dies or changes its subclass, the Nevit's Sandglass buff disappears.
If your character teleports to an Olympiad arena or into an instance zone, Nevit's Sandglass buff disappears.
The Nevit's Sandglass buff cannot be stolen with Steal Divinity.
The recommendation system XP bonus stacks with Vitality bonuses.

Repurchasing Example 1: Character A is level 63 and buys a Nevit's Sandglass. In less than 20 hours, he achieves level 64. Character A must wait until the rest of the 20 hours counts down before you can purchase another Nevit's Sandglass.

Repurchasing Example 2: Character B is level 75 and buys a Nevit's Sandglass. In less than 20 hours, she achieves level 76. Because level 76 is in a different level range than the last Nevit's Sandglass she purchased, Character B can purchase a new Nevit's Sandglass right away that is tailored to her new level range.
