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...."
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."
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.
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.

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.
Poll Results [Post A Comment] - Print News | Mail News 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!
Make our characters more customizable. [22 votes]
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.
