People (including myself) have been receiving emails from what appears to be NCSoft. These emails are NOT from NCSoft. Here's a sample of what they start out saying:
Dear PlayNC Client,

At PlayNC the greatest responsability to our customer is the safekeeping of confidential information you have entrusted to us and using it in a responsable manner. A fundamental element of safeguarding your confidential information is to provide protection against unauthorized access or use of this information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal guidelines to guard your nonpublic personal information against unauthorized access.

At this time we need you to renew your online account with our existing database( or it will be deactivated and deleted ). As soon as our database will be updated we need to make a few important anouncements to our customers so please renew your PlayNC account with no delay

They go on to give an address to click on to give them information. Do not click on this address. Note: NCSoft will never send you emails asking for your information like this. This is what Mistryl had to say:
This is not an email from PlayNC -- please don't click the link if you receive this email! As a reminder to everyone, NCsoft will never ask you for your password in an email or anywhere other than logging into PlayNC.com or a game. Emails asking for your game or PlayNC password are typically fraudulent, especially emails that claim your account or characters will be deleted.

Pass the word on to your friends. Do NOT reply to this email.

[Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News

L2Vault Week in Review

We start our week with the Featured Hero, Cha0sKeeper, a Devianne player who's quote is one befitting a hero:

"Play the game as it's made.
Don't fix olympic games, bot, or ebay."

Read about all of our Featured Heroes here.

The Fishing Championship Tournament has started and will run for the next few weeks. Grab a pole and get fishin'! Prizes include hundreds of thousand of adena in rewards adn a unique trophy hair accessory!

Window into The Catacombs brings us a great image of a battle with a Tomb Preacher. No poll this week... Shhh! :) Also in site content, we have Nerukan's first of a series fiction, The Mercenary.
"Gold dropped into the hands of Eldacar. Several heavy shining pieces of adena in those gloved hands. He gave a pleased smile as he shifted them in his palm and secured them safely in his pocket. Mesme had not survived, but he didn't care for the life of the dark elf. He was to be paid, for the heads of dark elves he did bring in...."
Read it here.

Our latest Lady of Lineage is none other than Lineage Radio DJ Vampyress!
What aspect of Lineage 2 do you like the best? What aspect do you like the least?
"The relationships you have with the friends you make in the game. No matter if the game sends us different roads we still end up chatting at length at it. The game is great, there is nothing I really don't like about it."

Also this week were a new set of calendars! One for Februrary and one specificly holiday-themed.
February 2007 / Valentines Day Scene-February 2007 Calendar

If you have articles, screenshots, event info, or any L2-related content that you'd like to share with the Lineage 2 community, send it in! Movies, art, wallpapers, articles... you name it! You can send them to us using our convenient submissions page.

  L2 Vault's Lady of Lineage!
[Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News

Go to the Feature

It's Thursday. . and that means we have a new "Lady of Lineage" to feature! Today, we meet Vampyress, DJ at Lineage Radio!
1. Why did you start playing Lineage 2?

I watched my husband play the game for six months. I decided to start play on his account and then we were fighting over the game when he came home from work. That is when we agreed to get my own account.

Read the entire feature here!

Know a lady who plays the game and who would be willing to be featured on Lineage 2 Vault? Send me an email at: seridove[at]vaultnetwork[dot]com!

Window into the Catacombs!
[Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News

Today our wandering warrior comes across two brave fighters in the Catacomb of Dark Omens fighting a Tomb Preacher.

One of the most incredible aspects of Lineage 2 is the amazing world we get to play in. I'm looking for you to share screenshots of the areas that you find especially beautiful. All you have to do is send them in to Seridove and we'll feature them on the front page of the Lineage 2 Vault.

Well the votes have been tallied and it was pretty close! Here are the results of what *you* think should be on the top of NCSoft's New Year's Resolution List!

Be more aggressive on permanently getting rid of bots. [18 votes]
Make all transportation free. [15 votes]
Increase the drop rates for full drop gear. [13 votes]
Nothing! The game is PERFECT! [6 votes]

It's clear with new releases such as "Vanguard: Saga of Heroes" that the player base wants more customization. Let's hope that NCSoft hears those voices.

Don't Destroy the Game Campaign
[Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News

The Vault Network is asking the community to help us preserve our Don't Destroy the Game philosophy and mantra. Our parent company IGN has partnered with the good guys over at Google to run its "Google Ads" across all of IGN's sites, which includes the Vaults. With that comes the chance of Google running a gold seller-type ad that might slip by the existing filter we help set up to ensure these ads are blocked. Because we told Google that these gold farmer type ads suck and don't belong on the Vault Network. They were more than happy to work with us to keep such ads off our sites. So, we will be watching to make sure we remove any that happen to slip through and muck up our stuff!

There is a gold lining to this situation (pun intended!). We have a system in place where any community member can submit an ad they might see via a simple and easy web form. You only need to provide one of two pieces of information: Name of Ad and/or the Link for the Ad -- that's it. Click here to learn more and where to submit.

What's HOT!! What's NOT!!
[Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News

Our current Adena Art Contest ties into our Monday topic as we ask you: "What is the most expensive thing you ever bought?" Did it cost you 10 million adena? 100 million adena? We're looking for the most expensive item you actually forked over the adena for. . and.. what was so HOT about it that you coughed up the cash? Or looking back, was it really NOT that HOT? Comment and let us know!!!
