December, January, and February Updates!

01 Feb 2016

We have had a strong focus on website updates recently, as you can see below we now have tons new guides, fixed/finished up old ones, gallery updates, feature page updates and many other website updates including many updates to our Account Manager and its user friendliness. We also recently changed siege times, and siege rules, and we will see how this goes. As always you are encouraged to read all our updates we have had lately below, we are always improving our server and will continue to do so!









Highlights:CASTLE SIEGE CHANGES, TONS OF WEBSITE UPDATES, INCREASED NEWBIE PROTECTION AND MORE!





- Castle Sieges have been changed to try to make them more fair. Now, only clans registered to attack or defend will be able to enter castle siege zones, and any clans that are in an alliance with this characters too. If you are not registered to defend or attack, or are not allied with someone who is registered to defend or attack, you will be teleported to town when you step onto siege grounds. This is subject to change. If you would like to voice your opinion about this, one way, or another, please post about it on the forums.

- Due to the nature of the above change, people can not join allies while sieges are in progress to prevent loopholes.

- Territory Wars remain unchanged.

- The Library on the website now has Newbie Bonuses Guide, check it out!

- The results are in. Based off polls and discussions with many players, our Siege Time and Territory War times have been changed, they are now earlier. The next Sieges and Territory Wars on January 9th and January 10th 2016 will be at our new times. Territory Wars are now 2.5 hours earlier (9:30 AM server time GMT-8) and Sieges are now 1 Hour earlier also at (9:30 AM server time GMT-8). So now sieges and territory wars are at the same time, just different days. Please note that we can not please everyone in this regard, we just have to go with the majority. We will open up a new poll soon to see what people think about the new times.

- Our Read Me!.txt file has been updated in our patch.

- Connection page updates, letting people know where to create an account, since they are no longer auto create.

- Updated some connection topics on the forums, hope it helps!

- Just a heads up to players, people are trying to (Brute Force) attack our server to figure out peoples passwords, a simple/basic/short way to explain this, is they use a program to guess account names, and passwords using a database of words. We are doing our part to protect players from this and have already increased protection against this drastically, but we suggest you update your password with a mix of lower case, upper case, numbers, and symbols so they can not figure out your password. If your password is poor, and does not meet these suggestions, you should go to www.L2Equanimity.com and click "accounts" then log into your in game account there, and click "change password". Try to avoid using real life words, such as cat, dog, sword, spear, human, orc, inside your password. Thais is just an example. If your password is complex enough, it will be almost impossible to crack it.

- If you think someone has been on your account, let us know, we would be glad to help you, but remember, this can only happen if your password is not that good.

- An old GM has returned, their name is Unseen! We are happy to have them back. If you have any issues with them, please contact Balls at balls006@hotmail.com directly.

- Now instead of of getting x2 PKs and karma when killing a new player you get x3 and automatically get +2 death penalty.

- The Murderer Achievement has been updated, you now need 50 Overall PKs rather then normal PKs.

- When you PK a new player, you will NOT get overall PKs increased, so it wont help towards the Murderer Achievement anymore. If you want to see your overall PKs type the .stats command.

- You can now trade up more Adena at once for gold bars at the GM Shop (up to 40) instead of capping out at 4.

- .newbie > Which clans recruit new players has been updated (new clan added), also the forums section on clan recruiting has been updated to reflect this change.

- increased the strength of cursed weapons to encourage people to use them/have fun with them, instead of just wanting to get it removed.
