R-grade cloth sets get +10% dagger, dual dagger, bow, crossbow resist at +8!
So in a year our feohs and healers will be a bit more durable against those instinct archers ^.^

the main new bless epic is not too bad, nice you can either lvl it up to mage or physical dps type

the new factions stuff looks promising but I'm not quite clear on some of it, those talisman rewards are those perma or on a timer - btw please tell me that you dont need to use compound to lvl them up ? and can you join another faction after you maxed out 1 ? this cause I saw some start at lvl 99 and others at 101 so I wonder how that's supposed to work ? or is it to be done in sequence aka first get max on Blackbird faction then World Protectors etc. ?

For 4 out of the 5 factions there is no precondition for joining. In the 4th column from the left they list the required Faction Friendship Level/세력 우호도/势力友好度, and usually it says 초급: 없음/"first stage: none". Only with the 왕국 근위대/"Guardians of the Kingdom" you need "at least stage one" (1등급 이상) to start the first quest. Don't ask me where that stage 1 Friendship Level is required to come from, whether it's any of the other four factions or only the 차원의 이방인/"Visitors from a Different Dimension" (the old Korean name for the Ertheias), which is listed above the Guardians of the Kingdom. I guess once the patch goes live (scheduled for Wednesday) a dedicated Powerbook article about the Faction System will appear :)

It doesn't say in which way the Faction Talismans are upgraded. A timer is not mentioned, so my guess would be that they are permanent. Inven.co.kr went bankrupt two weeks ago, so we have no more PTS information, but hopefully sooner or later a Powerwiki article about those Talismans will be published.

Maybe it should be mentioned that for upgrading/specializing the Helios Ring you need an item called 제왕의 원천/帝王之源泉/"Source of the Emperor" (Mimir is plotting to resurrect the Empire of the Giants), and you get this item by exchanging the Boss Jewel dropped by one of the strengthend Bosses that spawn after you have killed Helios. Ramona's Earring or Helios' Earring are also accepted by Rafforty :D

Hmmm, nthing really important with this pacth. A new RB, which will be farmed from the same top clan over and over again, in each server across territories.

No important changes to skills.

And of course grind, grind, grind... with the so called "faction" system.

Let's hope for more in the days that will follow.

Entry to the Helios raid area is through an NPC in Giran, like with Trasken and Daichir. So yes, the clan with the fastest click program will get the Boss :P

The Faction System was introduced because the developers need players to grind, or to be more precise, they need players to be in non-peace zones so that their time points are ticking down. This is the main way the Asian territories are generating their revenue. L2Store events don't seem to catch on - there is still no screenshot of a weapon with a Seven Signs SA :D

Here is a detailed report from the first test raid earlier today:
http://lineage2.plaync.com/board/image/ ... eId=607300

The main problem the raiders were facing was the great number of minions that spawned when they had reduced Helios' HP to 1/10. AttributeChange suggests that Archers might be able to stun the minions, letting the raid force keep the upper hand. Today they suffered a total wipe (전멸) even though they were supported by 5 GMs.

At the end the Boss did drop the Ring (태초의 반지), the Earring (헬리오스의 웅장한 귀걸이), a Stage 8 Soul Crystal and many other things :)
