11th Anniversary

It’s been 11 years since I spun this server up. 11 years of very consistent development. 11 years of new events, new content, new players, new drama, new game clients and over 99.999999999% uptime! When I started this server as a hobby I never expected it to become my full time job let alone that I’d still be working on it 11 years later. You have all been with me from the time that I met my wife, the birth of my 3 children and throughout the years they have been growing up. I’ve continued to grow as a person, a husband, a father and of course a GM over the course of these many years. My interactions with all of you have helped shape who I am and the course of this game.

From the start, I wanted to do something different. I didn’t strive to be a clone of the original Lineage. That was something that most of us have already played quite extensively. My goal was something different, something new. So at first, I played around with the idea of adding content from Lineage II into the Lineage 1 client. This was where the name L1.5 came from, an in-between stage for the two games. However I branched away from this pretty quickly due to having too many of my own ideas and stories I wanted to tell through content added.

This game has come quite a long way, and by no means am I finished telling the stories I want to tell with it. The next story to tell, you guys have been able to play for the past few weeks, but now I’m ready to announce it in full details.

The Ancient Pathways

While some like Baium sought to build a tower of insolence to the skies above to try to reach the Gods. Others knew that this was impossible and that the pathway to the Gods was not up, but through dimensional vortex. Lord Kelvin one of the elites of the Ancient Sky Kingdom, developed such a pathway through the vortex, using a series of 11 platforms. When he finally managed to get them to work he traveled through the vortexes and after the 10th one found what he was looking for. The Gods themselves! Gran Kain saw Lord Kelvin and while out first outraged at the audacity of such a crime, quickly calmed himself.

“Why do you come here mortal? What could you possibly hope to achieve by entering into our realm?” Gran Kain asked.

“I come to ask for the power to change the world.”, responded Lord Kelvin

“Hmm, very well. Your punishment shall be granting you that which you seek. You will have the power to change the world, however you will be trapped in the world that you created, forever guarding and preventing anyone from committing such a crime as you have done.”

With that Gran Kain snapped his fingers and Lord Kelvin began to cry out in pain as his body became a vortex of constant changing. Moments later he found himself back in the platforms he created as the world twisted around him. When he finally was able to stabilize his matter for any amount of time he sough to try to find his way out of the platforms but every time he got to the end, he found himself at the beginning. Each time he went through, every platform he entered changed and creatures began pouring through the portals.

This is when he realized that he was forever doomed to guard these pathways he created. Hundreds of years later, the entrance to this ancient pathway has been revealed and challengers have begun traversing these platforms to try to reach the Gods.

Event Details

The ancient platforms is a new system where you are able to traverse the platforms as far as you can. There is no limit to your platform level, the only limit is your character’s ability to kill the enemies and survive.

How to enter

You can enter the ancient pathways by going through the Ancient Vortex located in Valhalla (-shop) near the north corner of the map.

Platform Levels

Clearing a platform of all other living creatures will allow you to continue through a vortex to the next platform, which advances your “platform level”. You can see your current platform level near the map (as shown in the picture below), when entering the platforms (the picture above) or in the event info window acessable on the right side of game ui.

Your platform level is different for each difficulty, so that you can traverse the platforms as far as you can for each difficulty allowing the most rewards possible. Each week this platform level will be reset allowing you to traverse the platforms again for each difficulty.

The difficulty of each monster that spawns when you enter a platform is increased by your effective platform level (see below) and the round number. There are 3 rounds or waves of monsters that spawn on each platform, each round progressively harder than the previous. This difficulty increase is in the form of Penetration and Resilience stats.

Your platform level is saved even if you leave the Ancient Pathways, however you will always start from the first platform in the series of 10 platforms (the 10th being the double platform boss area).

Other players on the platforms...

The Ancient Pathways is an open world area, if someone enters the platform you are on, you will be forced to evict them through any means necessary to continue on your journey. The moment someone else enters the platform you are on, all monsters despawn and you’re forced to fight them. Once they leave the platform, either by you killing them or them teleporting or escaping off the platform, the monsters will spawn once more, allowing you to continue your progress.

PvP in this area utilizes the new Battlegrounds PvP system, allowing for a more fair and balanced fight. This system while very beta is being updated and improved overtime. Magic has been added to this system and with an upcoming patch should reflect int and wis damage and resistance bonuses properly allowing for a more competitive fighting style different for each style of play. See the details about this system in the post here: Battlegrounds PvP System Details.

Rewards for Traversing the Pathways

Of course if you’ll be doing this, you’ll need proper motivation and rewards. Not only do the monsters on the platforms have decent exp and sxp gains, but they also have drops only found here. These drops help you craft powerful gear to help your character not only progress further in the pathways, but also everywhere else! Check out the gear below to see what you can craft with these items that drop.

Additionally, each platform you clear will reward you with between 1 (Easy Difficulty) and 5 (Nightmare Difficulty) Denarii. You can bring these to Thorin in Valhalla (-shop) to purchase items to help you. This shop’s inventory will change over time but will always strive to have something to help with most goals! At the time of release, you can even get Blessed Limit Break Devices for a reasonable price!

Every 10th CONSECUTIVE platform will be a boss platform that spawns a boss on the 3rd wave. If you leave or log out, you will have will begin at platform 1 in regards to the boss platform again.

Lastly the Fame & Glory, the progress on the platforms is recorded and you can view your rankings for each difficulty on the leaderboards here: Ancient Pathways Leaderboards.

Coming next month (July) is a huge milestone for us as a game, server and really anything! We reach 11 years this year and I want to do something special for it! I want a new huge event that has lots of new content like this:

  • A permanent new daily instance
  • A new Raid Dungeon with a new boss
  • A new open world hunting event
  • Updates to Sky Castle Siege
  • New open world Boss
  • New Craftable XR Zajako Set
  • New 11 Year Anniversary Items

To be in a place to see these features released throughout the summer, I need to be able to spend the time necessary to create this content, in addition to the time to work on some previously unfinished features and bug fixes. To spend this time, I need to raise some funds so that I’m not required to work on contract work during the next few months to stay afloat. Thus, we have this fundraiser event. Continue reading for more details of the events going on this month.

Fundraiser Donation Event

Every dollar donated during the entire month of June (including the days before this post), will be counted as 1 chance to win big prizes in a donation event drawing to be held the first week of July. The Grand prize will include a custom armor piece that is one of a kind. The details for the prizes of this drawing will be posted soon.

Increased GC Rate

So to continue to encourage donations the rate is going to stay 20 GC per dollar donated throughout June. In July however it will go back down to the normal rate. This rate can also be increased up to 100% by donating larger amounts at the same time! The rate is increased at donations of $500, $1000, $2000 and $3000. Use the donation calculator to find out exactly how many gc you get for the donation you make!

Gacha Capsule Machine Event

The new Gacha Machine is spawning in various locations throughout Aden and Valhalla. You are able to insert gift coins or Gacha Tokens into this machine to receive capsules. Depending on how many Gift Coins you insert, it depends on the quality of capsule you’ll receive. Additionally there is both a chance that the machine will return empty (no capsule) or double (2 capsules!). If you insert 5GC or 10GC into the machine and it returns no capsules, the Gacha Manager will automatically reimburse you with a Gacha Token for a free change at another capsule.

GachaToken - This token allows one free play when inserted into the Gacha Machine. Each hour you are in the game there is a chance to obtain a free Gacha Token with the vitality wave. Additionally the Gacha Manager may give you one if the capsule machine doesn’t provide a capsule. You can only obtain a Gacha Token from vitality if you have less than 5 Gacha Tokens.

Bronze Gacha Capsule - This capsule has a chance to give you a Silver or Gold capsule when opened. It also has many other items that you can see by clicking on it here to view it in the Library section of the site. These capsules can be obtained by inserting 1 Gift Coin or 1 Gacha Token into the Gacha Machine.

Silver Gacha Capsule - This capsule has a chance to give you a gold capsule when opened. It also has many other items that you can see by clicking on it here to view it in the Library section of the site. These capsules can be obtained by inserting 5 Gift Coins into the Gacha Machine or sometimes found inside of a Bronze Gacha Capsule.

Gold Gacha Capsule - This capsule has a chance to give you XR Antharas Weapons and Equipmment. It also has many other items that you can see by clicking on it here to view it in the Library section of the site. These capsules can be obtained by inserting 10 Gift Coins into the Gacha Machine or sometimes found inside of a Bronze and Silver Gacha Capsule.

Flip 2 Win Returns!

The favorite mini game where you flip cards to win prizes is back! This game allows you to see the potential prize pool for -YOUR- prize board before you flip the cards and attempt to win the biggest prizes! But play it safe because the cost for each flip continues to go up each card you flip! To play, click here!

Weekly Spawn Events

A spawn event will take place each Saturday (some may be postponed to another day of the week depending on Zajako's Real Life Schedule) if enough is donated that week. Also depending on the amount donated the event will be more epic or longer in duration. The waves will be split to low-tier, mid-tier and high-tier to allow all levels access to the event, the high tier will have end game bosses and monsters. This event is subject to change each week and is performed live by the GM. Be prepared for some epic drops and possibly epic lag as these events get very spawn heavy. If you are prone to lag, you'll wanna stay in a lower tier arena during the event to ensure better quality play. The first of these spawn events will take place tonight, around 9pm EST (June 6th).

I’m looking forward to working on all this new anniversary stuff and making this year the best anniversary event ever. With your support we can make this happen!

As the title of this post suggests, this is a large update with a lot of new systems. So I’m gonna break down each system and explain them. Click this link to read about the events going on this month

Soul Seal System

This is probably the most requested feature in the history of L1.5 Finally released. For a long time I’ve pondered the best way to implement this, so much so that I thought it was in game for a long time… Well now it is. I’ll explain what it is and how it works now…

What is the Soul Seal System?

When gaining Soul Experience it divides the gained sxp across all equipped soul equipment. So if you gain 100 sxp and have 5 soul items equipped that are not yet at max level, each will gain 20 sxp. The problem with this is if you are trying to focus on leveling just one piece, you are forced to unequip the other 4 items to speed it up, often weakening your character, limiting where you can hunt.

This system allows you to seal the sxp gains for the 4 items you don’t want to gain sxp, allowing the full amount of sxp (in this example 100sxp) goto the one item that is not soul sealed.

That's great! How does it work?

When you use a Soul Sealer Scroll (details below), it prompts you to select a target item, use this on any non sealed soul armor or weapon, to make them sealed. If you use it on an already sealed soul item, it will unseal it. (Use it once to seal, use it again to unseal)

You can verify what items are sealed by equipping it and using the command -soulinfo. If it is sealed, you’ll see [SoulSealed] on the right side of the item name.

Any sealed items are treated similar to if it were max level as far as sxp gains are concerned. Meaning it will not gain sxp from any method and also not count when dividing the sxp across the other equipped items.

How do I get these Soul Seal Scrolls?

Currently you can only find the scrolls in the new mini game explained in the next post (Gacha Game), however in the future they will likely be added to one of the shops in Valhalla, possibly some other places as well.

PSS (Player Support System) Alpha Release

Player Support is a feature added with the HD client that has been disabled, until now. This feature is very alpha and may be disabled in the future if abused or deemed a negative impact to the server.

What is PSS?
PSS is a system that helps automate some features of your character, like hunting monsters, using healing potions, buff items, summoning dolls and more.
Why is it alpha?
It is in alpha because most of the interface is poorly translated, doesn't support custom items yet and may or may not work properly in some situations.
How do I use it?
Using PSS requires the blessing of the Hands of Fate. You can get this buff by using the Hands of Fate item. This buff lasts 1 hour and stacks, allowing you to increase your time running it.

With this buff, you can click on the small window near the bottom and click the play button to pop up the play support window. From there you can click start to make it begin.

There are many more advanced features of this system and a guide will need to be made to explain a lot of them. I will not go into more details here, but you can request help in discord if you need help figuring it out.

Shoulder Enchants Updated

Shoulder aka Pauldron enchant scrolls now work properly on the correct items. Also added to the server with this restart is a Blessed and Protection version of these scrolls. You can get these scrolls from the mini games released this month.

New Items

Soul Sealer Scroll - This scroll toggles the ability to gain SXP on Soul Weapons or Armors, allowing you to focus sxp gains on specific items.

Hands of Fate - This scroll enables the PSS system for 1 hour and when used multiple times stacks the timer.

Blessed Pauldron Enchant Scroll - If enchant fails while using this scroll, it will reset to +0 instead of being destroyed.

Protection Pauldron Enchant Scroll - If enchant fails while using this scroll nothing happens.

The winners have been picked and now they are posted. Click the link below to both see the winners and claim your prize, if you won.

Easter is on the brink of ruin! Tired of the tyrany of of the Bunny King and Queen, A Ultra Cool Bunny has rose up in the background rallying any bunny that will listen to it (Being pretty cool, it wasn’t hard to get a lot of bunnies!) to take over easter! They raided the stash of Easter eggs and sent them flying all over Talking Island.

Event Details

You are tasked with the goal of hunting the the bunnies of Talking Island and getting the eggs back! They can drop different colored Easter eggs that are worth different amounts of points. These points can be turned in by expanding the event menu on the right and choosing "Turn In Items". It will then consume all Easter Egg items (for this event) and reward you with points and items you have earned by accumulating those points. Additionally it will reward you randomly with buffs according to the eggs you turned in. These Buffs stack with each other and themselves, allowing you to increase the duration. Furthermore they do save when you log out and will restore themselves when you log back in.

Easter Blessing Buffs

These buffs are obtained randomly when turning in easter items. They are saved when you logout and the timers stack when turning in. You can also get these buffs from using the Mystery Easter Candy (mentioned later in this post), however the candy will not increase your buff timer if over one hour, while the turn in bonus will.

Bunny Egg Blessing - Green: This buff adds +10 Battlegrounds PvP Defence

Bunny Egg Blessing - Blue: This buff adds +10 Battlegrounds PvP Damage

Bunny Egg Blessing - Red: This buff adds +1 Point for each Event Point item turned in

Bunny Egg Blessing - Purple: This buff adds +10 Battlegrounds PvP Base Damage

2020 Bunny Loyalty Gear

So every year, the Bunny gear is rolled out with fresher and newer versions. This year is no different! You can craft this gear using the Frintezza’s Seamstress npc located in SKT and Aden. The menus have changed a bit to make them more organized and cleaner. You can craft the base bunny items using materials gained from hunting on Talking Island. These base items can then be used to craft or be upgraded to loyalty items, using Easter Loyalty Seal - 2020. You can get these seals temporarily from Ives’ shop. Here are some major changes in the Loyalty Bunny items this year:

  • All loyalty gear (except the golden egg jewel) has 40 soul levels
  • Levels 31- 40 give decent amounts of PEN/RES for each item
  • Levels 31- 40 DO NOT require Limit Breaks to level up.
  • Each piece (including the golden egg) add +1 to Battlegrounds PvP BASE damage
  • The Golden Egg adds 60 PEN and 10 RES now

So acquiring this set would be helpful for pvp in the battlegrounds zones, which most of this event takes place in! Here is the list of Loyalty Items added this year, click on them for more details:



New Items added

Mystery Easter Candy - This candy when consumed gives you a random Bunny Egg Blessing. It will not increase the buff timer beyond the 1 hour it gives. If your buff timer for the buff it gives is less than one hour, it will become 1 hour. If it is more than one hour, it will not change it. You can use this item as many times as you would like until you get the desired bunny buff. Just try not to get an upset tummy! Ives has these in his shop for those interested!

Easter Loyalty Seal - 2020 - This item can be used to upgrade base bunny equipment into 2020 Loyalty bunny equipment that can be leveled up and has loads of benefits. You can get these from Ives.

Bunny Bag - 2020 - This bag contains a random material to craft bunny gear. It also has a chance to give a Mystery Easter Candy. These can be obtained by turning in points or directly from Ives’ shop.

Green Easter Egg - This Easter egg is dropped by the bunnies on Talking Island. It rewards you with one point and can trigger the Green Easter Blessing Buff.

Blue Easter Egg - This Easter egg is dropped by the bunnies on Talking Island. It rewards you with two points and can trigger the Blue Easter Blessing Buff.

Red Easter Egg - This Easter egg is dropped by the bunnies on Talking Island. It rewards you with three points and can trigger the Red Easter Blessing Buff.

Purple Easter Egg - This Easter egg is dropped by the bunnies on Talking Island. It rewards you with four points and can trigger the Purple Easter Blessing Buff.

Bug Fixes

  • A bug causing the time left on buffs when logging in showing the wrong amount of time is fixed
  • A text glitch in buff timers has been fixed
  • More weight bugs have been fixed
  • Many bugs related to spawns and re-spawning have been fixed
