All game accounts registered during BETA test will be preserved and available during live launch. All characters will be deleted after BETA test end.

Modifications available only for BETA test:

  • SoE to Giran for each newly created character
  • Dark Elmore Beta NPC - will be present in Giran next to DE Vendor right next to the gatekeeper. It will enable you to test any phase of the game by adding XP/SP/ adena, DEC, nobless, various items, class transfer, etc.

Anti-BOT protection:

Anti-bot protection will be active from BETA test start. If you try to test it and get banned, the ban will be lifted only after BETA test end. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

Bug reports:

You can report potential bugs on forum in the appropriate section. Please consider if it is really a  bug and if it wasn’t already reported

Please keep in mind, that this is a BETA test and unexpected and unannounced restarts may occur based on needs of GMs and testers.

We ask all BETA test participants to really focus on testing and not to bother GMs with unnecessary requests and questions. 

We thank everyone for helping us finetune the live server launch.

In response to players' requests, we have modified static spawns of WBs. There was also a change in the 1st and 2nd class transfer prices in the adena. For details, see section "About server".

The next article will inform you about VIP model & Vote model for Dark Elmore 2018.

We are looking forward to seeing you on BETA start.

Your L2 GM team


Dear players,

the preparations of new server Dark Elmore 2018 are ongoing and we are introducing some changes regarding the web and the donate model.

Deletion of unused L2 web profiles

Because of long needed overdue maintenance we made a complex cleanup and deleted all web profiles that have no payment history. A new feature was introduced - email uniqueness. If multiple L2 web profiles were registered to 1 email, they were merged into 1 L2 web profile. Now you can log in to your L2 web profile either by username or email address. We recommend using only 1 L2 web profile, where you will have all of your ingame accounts connected & maintained.

Donate model

We released a new, more user friendly version of donate model. Now it will be possible to buy directly Dark Elmore Coins (DEC), which you can then transfer ingame. It will no longer be possible to transfer DEC back from a game character to your L2 web profile. The conversion rate will be the same 1 CZK = 10 DEC. The original profile currency (OGs) was automatically transferred to DEC. 

To make donations easier for you, we introduced special buttons in the payment form, that display also the DEC bonus. Just click the button or enter the amount of DEC you want. The amount to pay will be displayed in the next step in the selected currency. After this you will be redirected to the payment gateway where the payment will take place. The form for online payments will be available after we get the new payment gateway online.

New payment gateway 

We are preparing a new payment gateway, that will be able to process payments from all over the world. It has many payment types available. For those that cannot pay by credit/debit cards, alternative methods will be available. We will also keep the possibility to donate directly to our bank account.

The next article will contain information about VIP model + Vote model for DE18. Information about the start of Beta Test will be published next week.

Your L2 Team
