-Test server wipe There was a wipe on test server because of all the duping
going on with the weird lag. News on December 25th had some info
about that lag. Anyway, the whole server was reset and all
chars/items and everything. But instead of making less ppl play on
the server, even more ppl came.. I guess its because of everyone
being equal now... I would be one of the strong.. but I can only
play around 5 hours - 10 hours a day because of work.. I guess I'm
not as rich as some people who play 24/7. Good luck to everyone
who plays on test server.. And don't forget.. if you find a bug..
report it... don't abuse it... it will only either bring a setback
or a wipe. :(
of the day: Test server drops are about the same as they were
on normal servers during the Christmas event.

I made a small game... for right now it has nothing to do with
Lineage... but soon you will find out exactly how it's connected
to Lineage. You don't have to download it or anything, but you do
need a flash player plug-in.
Play it here. If you want, tell
me what you think on the official lineage boards, ill post about
this game there. Please give me suggestions on how to improve it!
ANY suggestions! You can also e-mail them
Also in the game, there is a small
cheat.. if you can find the cheat ill give you some kind of a
prize or something.
Last week it was impossible to play on US test server because of
some kind of strange lag that made buying potions or
taking/placing something in storage impossible! Also it took
sometimes up to 5 minutes to change characters or receive
something you have gotten from a monster!

-Fight Test Server
Yesterday Lord cutter summoned
antharus and fafurion in Giran arena for them to fight. You can
say fafurion won the battle because he made antharus hide. After
that Lord cutter killed both dragons. I only saw the last part
where he was showing the items. -Mury Most of the time muryans don't drop anything good. Until one

be higher today after the server gets reset sometime this evening.
If anyone wants to see exactly what he said, there is a screen
shot of all he said below. -A farm o.o For the last week farm animals were hanging out near the

-Cannot Loot Just wanted to share with you that Korean test server has a
very cool loot system, but still not like us server (us sever much
better). After you kill a monster you have 10 seconds to pick up
the items until any other monster/person can pick them up. If you
did more damage against a monster that many people killed only you
will be able to pick up the items, and there will be a message
like the one above saying you can't loot the item.

(including me) couldn't connect to any servers or any official
lineage websites (even Korean lineage websites). I lagged out at
about 7:10 pm pacific time yesterday. I couldn't connect to lineage in Korea or
lineage in us or Korean website or us lineage website. After
connecting back in about 10 minutes I saw that most people did not
get disconnected but some did. There is no information about this
major problem on official website. All I know its not safe to hunt
at all if you ever had this problem. Because lag out can come at

A person with name "xrangsx" sent me this very nice screen shot.
Screen shot contained +8 skull helmet and +9 weapons. He did not
specify if the screen shot was taken on Korean Test server, but I
would think so since that skull helmet is as hard to make as +14
weapon. Its not safe to + bone items to anything.. so being lucky
8 times making it same as you would be lucky from +6weapon all the
way up to +14. Click on the screen shot to see a better copy of
I don't know if many people knew this, but I just found out that
there is a limit on how many items you put on the ground. This was
probably done so people would not be able to put many candles in 1

US test server
new update/New NPC discovered!
-US test server new update There was a text file update which contained text for
something. I couldn't read them, I don't' know why but I will try
to find out what was in them. Here are the names of those files,
catty-e gunterw1-e helphnte-e helphntk-e helphntp-e helpnpc-e
illdrath-e johan10-e luder2-e PhineasW-e shivan-e tovia1-e vergil-e"
You can probably figure out that some of those are the npc files
who are already in the game and there are just small corrections.
Also you can see that files with "help" in them probably have to
do something with in game help (F1).
After the last
update with new monsters, necklace and some new npc, people tried
to find all the npcs that were added. Now the 3rd out of 4 new
npcs has been found. His name is Tarnac and he also tells you
about the Elindare people. He refers to the other npc found
Melinda. He is located just outside of skt, if you walk around its
gate you can find him. This 3rd npc was found with the help of

Some Minion of Eldinare are very dangerous for everyone. There are
2 different kinds, 1 is weak and will not do any high damage
against high level players and the
other one is strong and will cast tornado which will do about the
damage of dark elf's tornado. There is no way to tell them apart
except the place you encounter them. Some of the places you will
see the stronger type of Minion of Eldinare is Waste land, Dragon
Valley and sometimes above Desert.
When you are making a Serpent amulet, Randolf says different
things to different classes, its really not that important but for
those who want to know what they say to elf, and prince

She is located on TI. To see what she says, click the picture on

Dep, Ken server
Ken server update The updates with 2 new monsters and a new npc as well as some
new items came to the normal servers today. This is what exactly
came, 2 new monsters: Minion of Elindare and Serpent of Elindare. They both can be
found in Small wasteland, road from gludin to kent, above small
wasteland. There is no word on what Minion of Elindare drops.
Serpent of Elindare drops 1 new thing, serpents
scales. Drop rate for them is 1/1.
2 new items: 1. Silver Serpent Scale used to make silver serpent necklace.
2. Silver serpent necklace made near TI docks from NPC named
randalf. You need 10 scales to make one necklace.
1 new NPC: The new npc is Randolf. He is located on TI near docks.

SKT EVENT!!! (DEP
-Silver Knight Town Event All those cries about having a good event finally paid off
in SKT! GameMaster or someone from NC summoned a lot of under
water and Heine dungeon creatures at SKT. This was probably done
to introduce the new monsters to people who still haven't seen
them yet or maybe just to bring some fun to people of Lineage. The
event was most great for Mages. Over 100 bbs could be seen in SKT.
More bbs then people! Mages fireball everything summoned. Getting
their bugbears to kill them. I don't' know of any drops that
anyone got, but it sure was fun. I took some screen shots, here
-Some of the monsters that were summoned were, crabman, ramias,
turtle dragon, crustaceans. Crustaceans can sometimes kill a

amulet, Explanation. (Test server only)
There was a text
file update a couple days ago which brought 4 new NPC's, a couple
new monsters as well as some new items. Right now I only know of 1
npc, that's Randolf which is located on Talking island near the
dock. The 2 new monsters are listed in news before. And the new
items are Silver Serpent Scale, and Silver Serpents necklace. Any
other items are unknown right now. -New amulet
- Updated - 5:31 PM
The new amulet added to the game in last update gives a person who
wears it 10 extra hp. This is a very good item for newbies who
cannot afford an orc amulet yet.
Update : you need 10 Silver serpent scales to make
the amulet. That's 8-10 Serpents you have to kill. -Explanation
I have made a big mistake a week ago or so, I downloaded update
from Korean test server, which made it impossible for me to
download the update from us server because the client thought that
I already have us update. That is why my monster names are a
little different from LineageCompendium. I'm going to re-download
my installation file today and I hope I can fix my errors by

-New monster drops, screenshots, who?
many parts of Aden land today, but found no new NPC's from new text
files. The NPC near TI docks did not talk to me. I think he
doesn't have English files yet. Since I wasn't able to get my Lang
to change to Korean, we'll just have to wait to know what exactly
the NPC says.
-I found out that, there are 2 new monsters in the game. One of
them is listed in the news for December 1st and the other one is "Serpent of Cerenis". Serpent of Cerenis drops adena and Silver Serpent Scale.
The drop rate for his scales is 1/1, meaning he will drop 1 every
time, and sometimes 2. He also has a strange attack, some times he
wraps around your body as an attack. Doing about 5 hp damage. Here
are some more screen shots.
Today the mysterious monster "???" gave me some idea of what he

I encountered a strange monster I have never seen before. Monster
looks like dark elf and does about 2-10 damage a hit on -1 ac

strange damage it had an absolutely amazing name, "???". The
monster is found right above small wasteland. It's aggressive.
Also there's many shelobs/ungoliants there, as well as werewolf
