"Common Policy" is the literal translation of 공통 방침 resp. 共通 方针. I am sure it is inspired by the WoW stance. How it will be ultimately implemented remains to be seen.

As far as the armored cats are concerned, it is possible that they will come at a later point in time, or it was an idea that was scrapped again, like the link skills of the Summoner (a Tank knocking down the enemy with Shield Stun, you letting cats rain on top of the helpless victim).

An even more probable possibility is that those armored cats are not servitors at all but NPCs living in the Arcan region of Magmeld. Arcan is the capital of the Cat People (the place where you are summoning your servitors from), and those heavily armed kitties could be residents of that city, fighting together with you against the growing influence of Shilen :)

Everything seem to be very fluid so far. Infomation is coming and going and we have only few pieces without knowing that they will turn out to be true or not. Do you believe that the presentation NC will make on the 28th of April will be anythinh substantial, or will it be even more vague/wishful data?

PS: Any info or announcment on the Korean PTS? (it seems quite overdue...)

ChildOfHeaven from NCTaiwan, who is in close conatct with her colleagues at NCKorea, wrote two days ago that "Goddess of Destruction" is still a very long time away, nothing is fixed (目前改毀滅女神的時間還很久 甚至可以說是不確定):
http://tw.myblog.yahoo.com/l2_friend/ar ... =f&fid=127
(at the end of the article, above the log-in screen)

Looking at the Powerbook Wikipedia, I would say the same. Things are still in constant change. The Thunder Falcon servitor we could see in the Archer video has been removed from the skill list again, the link skill idea where you needed a partner (like with the couple dance) seems to have been scrapped, the "Mechanic Ostrich" mount that new characters were supposed to get on Talking island is not mentioned in the respective PowerWiki article any more ...

I am afraid the presentation on April 28 will just be of preliminary nature, a kind of heads-up what the developers are working on at the moment.

I am affraid so too. The only thing that seems to be certain is that classes are merged. All the rest seem to be under discussion. The presentation of 28th will probably be another pointless advertising trick. Advertising is good of course, but for a product that exists. I don't think we will know more on the 29th and I bet that all info will have the usual disclaimer: "Certain aspects of the game are bound to change until it comes live, etc.".

Update:
Yesterday the developers said in a new interview that testing will begin in early May. Possibly this will be done in two stages. On the regular PTS balancing will be going on, possibly not available to the public. In addition to that there will be a second test server (maybe a bit later?) where the Korean players can duplicate their character from their regular live server and try out Goddess of Destruction:

Not Antharas but the new Bosses who come with the Goddess of Destruction: Istina in the Seed of Annihilation, Balrog in the Crystal Caverns (he takes over from Baylor) etc.
Those Bosses are dropping with a certain probability R-Grade Soul Crystals of yellow, turquoise and purple color which are then used to bestow a second SA on the weapon:

Important questions:
1) Do these new RBs have teeth?
2) Will they give them to us?

They have considerable teeth. Like for example Balrog. He was originally designated as lvl 85 Raid Boss:
http://gametsg.yatta.com.tw/lineage2/in ... pic=307833
But then the developers changed the Crystal Caverns to a lvl 97 hunting ground:
http://gametsg.yatta.com.tw/lineage2/in ... iewboard=1
So for the time being we won't get any of those Soul Crystal teeth from him :)


You might have a better chance with Istina. Her Birthing Chamber is for players of lvl 88. When we take into consideration that a number of players are already lvl 85+100%, i.e. de facto lvl 86, that's more within reach.

Fortuna and Spacia in the Dark Exile (Magmeld Territory) are lvl 90, Octavis in the Hall of Orbis lvl 95. So again, no tooth extraction for the time being :)


Disclaimer:
The developers have removed the cited levels from the PowerWiki again, so this is just a preliminary information, due to change at any time.
