The Lineage2 Revolution Developer’s Team is glad to finally meet you! It has been two months since we started on our journey into the Lineage World but it feels just like yesterday. We are always grateful for the love and dedication that you, our Heroes, have continuously shown us.
We are aware of the inconveniences that some of our Heroes have experienced and we promise to work hard to resolve them and make sure that all our Heroes enjoy Lineage2 Revolution. Today, we will be taking a look at an issue that has been discussed at great length amongst our Heroes: Enhancement Success Rate.
After monitoring the community we have noticed that a lot of users had the following opinions on the enhancement success rate.
- I went as far as purchasing Enhancement scrolls in order to enhance my equipment but instead my Combat Power decreased.
- The developers must have changed the enhancement success rate.
First off, we would like to address the issue that has frustrated a lot of our Heroes: Enhancement Fails
Apart from the opinions mentioned above, a lot of our Heroes have expressed shock at the fact that they failed to enhance their equipment even after using Maphr’s Protection and Enhancement Scrolls. In addition to these sentiments, our Heroes have felt that there is a limit to how much you can increase your CP if you do not enhance your equipment. No matter how many Enhancement Scrolls one uses it seems that you can only attain an enhancement of between +5 to +7 which would put one at a disadvantage while hunting.
We, the Lineage Developer’s Team, completely understand the frustration that our Heroes may face due to this. We also have also personally experienced enhancement fails quite a number of times and have had the same frustrations. Even when we play Lineage2 Revolution during our free time. We deeply sympathize with our Heroes and we will work hard to reduce your frustration with this issue so that you may enjoy the game even more.
To this end, we plan to make the following changes during the month of September.
1) A new system to craft Blessed Enhancement Scrolls will be added. This will make it easier for Heroes to obtain enhancement scrolls.
2) We are currently considering giving out items that will help our Heroes during enhancement and are in the planning stages of events where you would be able to obtain such items. You would be able to obtain items such as Maphr’s Protection through such events.
Did the enhancement success rate change? We know that this question has been on every Hero’s mind.
The short answer is no, the rate did not change.
In order to explain this answer further, let us take a look at the success rate of all Heroes so far. The following graph shows the success rate shown in-game and the average success rate of the players from the launch of the game to the middle of August.
Overall the expected success rate and the actual success rate is the same but if you look at the data you will notice that as the enhancement level increases a discrepancy between the expected success rate and average success rate appears. For higher enhancement levels such as the section between enhancement +28 and +30, you can see that the actual enhancement success rate is much higher than the expected success rate. This is due to the fact that fewer enhancements have been made in the higher levels compared to the lower levels. As more users enhance their equipment the actual enhancement rate will near the expected enhancement rate.
Many Heroes were wondering if there were changes made to the enhancement rate. We can assure you that there were no changes made to it. However, due to the differences in the enhancement success rate between users, it may feel as if the server changes the success rate depending on the individual in real-time.
However, Lineage2 Revolution, this massive MMORPG does not have the techniques to give certain users a certain success rate. If that was the case we would have adjusted the system to reduce our users’ frustration.
Once again, we are aware of the many frustrations that the enhancement success rate has caused our Heroes. However, for the past two months many Heroes have been able to achieve high enhancement levels and so it would be unfair to lower the enhancement difficulty level at this point. We hope that our Heroes will understand this point.
Even though we cannot make changes to the enhancement difficulty level, users will be able to more easily obtain items such as Blessed Enhancement Scrolls and Maphr’s Protection, which will be helpful during enhancement.
In addition, we are making improvements to the system to ensure that if you fail to successfully enhance your equipment you will certainly be able to obtain Maphr’s Protection Fragments based on the amount of currency that went into the enhancement. We ask for your continuous support and encouragement.
