A few days ago, Lineage 2 announced that the Hellbound update is up for grabs, signaling the end of this run for the public test server. If you're part of the Lineage 2 populace, you might already know that the server is currently down.
NCsoft has announced that we can expect the server to go back online by sometime next week, but did not give any specific time or day. In the meantime, the downtime will serve as a maintenance period, as well as a wipe.
