did I read it right at the second section "New Growth Method Added" that any char above level 85 will be auto awaken into their designated class with a free chaos essence to change the type if so desired ? aka the end of SOS and other unawaken boxes is coming ?

new uber raid boss and clan specific instances / reputation system are all very nice but right now I'm having the feeling it's too little too late, by the time we get this update I sincerely doubt there will still be 4 servers at NCWest active as no matter the type of content they add if they can't control themselves on the nonsense they push throu their L2Store with their bad/unrealistic pricing there just wont be a viable player population left.

If I understand that part right, this concerns only those characters who Awakened before Lindvior and chose not to pick a diversified class. Those - already Awakened - characters will be forcefully diversified into the classes listed in the table. Like for example all Human Tyrr Warriors will automatically become Tyrr Duellists on update day. If you would rather be a Tyrr Dreadnought, you have to use the Chaos Essence provided to you by the system both for Main and Dual Class.

This means un-Awakened boxes should still be viable.

At the first point in that section it says that new content will be introduced to get from character creation to lvl 85 (presumably extra fast), but Awakening is not mentioned there. So this will most probably still be a choice/quest you have to make yourself. On January 28 (new moon) the Year of the Chicken starts, and the Spring Festival event will run until February 8:

After that event more detailed information is to be expected :)

well the amount of chars that are awaken but not diversified can't be many whereas the amount of boxes/alts that are past 85+ and remain unawaken is much higher.. was actually hoping NC would fix that particular oversight of theirs but maybe with the reworking of all the classes it really will become a moot point.. let's see if the reworked Tanks will get back their old pre awaken trigger party bufs like SOS so people will start actually inviting awaken / real tank players more often..

right now you can use unawaken Tank / Cat buffs on awaken chars and create insane pve dps boost effects but at the cost of real Tank / Summoner players which imo is uncool and weird for Koreans to promote such anti social behavior..

didn't get part with clan level up.
you need blood alliance and blood oath, or only one of those?

and dreacke: koreans and innova.eu/ncwest peoples game style is different, maybe some more different in innova.ru, idk about those nothing.
for example koreans make all possible dragon weapons (or i'm wrong?) in core there is few fragments for slashers, heard that was dropped anthy fighter fragment, but top clans want only thrower retri caster buster.. others - not important. and in almost all clans 90% dd - archers. if not main, then dual. and those who play tyrr othel feoh and have hero play support class or like all others - archers. :)

Comparing the current clans with the updated clan system
Which parts of our current clan system are: "A blood donor" and "Elite blood alliance"? Which one of those are the people who will be allowed to wear the dark/light castle cloaks?
Also what is the final maximum clan members number? this (+number) on the 1st table confuses me.

Indeed. It comes to at least 3 years to late. Level 15 clans would've been cool with introduction of GoD, not now. Barely enough players on NCWest servers to fill a clan with at this size. No main clan increase, only Units. So it's fucking pointless. All want the Castle Cloak and having 80 more people in clan begging for those 40 spots doesn't help a bit. OK. Ran it through Google... Bigger main clan, with specialist unit. Finally they understand a real clan system. Just losing 20 slots in total, making actually smaller clans. But thank god, no more main clan cloak qq. Too bad also no new clan skills... #NCSoftFailure

Also, it's not Clans that needed changing it's alliances that needed. Blue on Blue fire on siege and PvP is just retarded.

Yes Koreans play different. Russians play different. Hence why Russians clans on non-Russian servers are so goddamn overpowered zergmachines. They work together for one goal not like 'Westerners' do. They indeed all roll Archer and PPoM because that's the best and don't care about the rest.
Of course Koreans craft all type of dragon weapons, because they can. The top Korean clans have 13 years of material farming in warehouses. Getting the fragments etc. is easy, the materials isn't. Finding a Maestro on Naia that has all lv5 Recipes to just craft 1 Dragon Weapon is insanely hard, if you find him (psst, it's one of Exe/Ozzy's alts) you pay 10-100m per craft.

It's what Draecke says, this update is nice. But it's to late. In 12 months from now I bet NCWest merged Naia and Chronos, Freya and Zaken if not all together on one server and run insane L2store promotions.

When more than 10 years led to the epic, Seven chapters of salvation shall be opened to decorate the last sign of the story,
and the maintenance of blood ye the leader of the clan, prepare for battle with the forces of the last five Embry!

Not sure what they are saying, but sounds like the end of the game to me, lol.

Isn't it about time they round up all the lore? They half assed the lore for years now, Seven Signs story never really been finished anyway.
Thank god they finish atleast the far less inspired Embryo lore and maybe finally... FAFURION

The Clan renewal goes in two steps:

1) January 18 ~ February. This is the first table you see in the patch notes. It basically maintains the current structure, but increases the number of members in the two Royal Guards.

2) Feburary ~ future. This is what you see in the second table. Academy and Order of Knights are being removed. Members of the Main Clan/직속 and the former Royal Guards are renamed Clan Members/혈맹원 (what Mr. Google translates as "Blood Donor"; in reality the blood of sacrificial animals is being smeared over the mouth to seal the Blood Oath when a real-life militia is founded).
The Royal Guard Captains and Knight Captains who used to belong themselves to the Main Clan are being renamed into Elite Clan Members/정예 혈맹원, what Mr. Google translates as "Elite Blood Alliance".
Normal members of the Royal Guards and Order of Knights will be automatically expelled from the clan on update day in February.

Nothing is mentioned in the patch notes about who will be able to wear a Castle Cloak.

The final maximum clan member number is the number in the rightmost column in the second table. If you have a clan lvl 15, you will be able to accomodate overall 200 members, 171 regular ones and 29 Elite ones.
