for newbies

Have u just started playing L2?
Are you thinking of starting it now?
Do you find it kinda hard?
This topic will help you :)

What Is Lineage II?
L2 Is an online game considered as MMORPG
In L2  Important role plays the  contribution , braininess and ur free time .

How Can I Play L2? Must I Pay?
Lineage II is a free game(in our point of view) , u must pay only if u want to play in the official Lineage ii (L2Official)
But that’s why they have Private Servers , if u don’t have to give money !

First Of All try to find  a proper server
The servers that u will play will not “retail” and they don’t give u the experience of the Official Game

  • L2 Have 3 Kinds Of Server

Low Rate (x1-x20) – where u will xp slowly and u will earn items difficult .
Mid Rate (x20-x50) – Where xp is medium and the items are easier from a low rate server
High Rate (x50-x10000) –  the goal of a high rate server Is PvP ( Player Vs Player(s))

The Next parameter is the Chronicle (The version of the game)
Lineage2 have many and different versions , and they keep making new versions .
Official Server always has  the latest version but on private servers sometimes no , the most popular versions are :

  • Interlude
  • Gracia Epilogue
  • Freya

But they have some differences   , but actually are the same . (Freya is the expansion of Interlude)

There’s of course many Private Servers
For Select a private server , u must visit some websites, where they advertise servers like , and the Lineage II Servers Section Of MaxCheaters

You will see and more strange like ( L2J – L2OFF )
L2OFF are the files of the older version of official . ( It has got few bugs )
L2J are the files that are created from other people but τhe results are the same with L2OFF but it has got many bugs/exploits (The reason that we have MaxCHEATERS) but u have the possibility  to make them much better

From where can i download clients ? How can i log?
You can find the clients by clicking here or search at google by writing their names.
Then you must put  the  relative system/patch of the server
This given from the website of the private server (How to connect/Downloads)
Download the files , and replace  them with the old ones
See This , it will help you

Then Run Lineage from  lineage2/system/l2.exe

Nice i’ve logged what i must do now?
Then make sure that you’ve created an account , log and make ur character ( Select ur race )
You can give a check there(couldn’t find any english one,anyway it’s easy)

What i need now?
Then , if u have been logged in the game,  you must kill some monsters for level up(for how much easy is level up we said it up)
By killing  monsters u will earn adenas that u will need for buy items.
Try to go to the nearly town  for buy items (like Soulshots)

At 20 level u will do the first quest ( if it has a cat ( class transfer-manager -easier shit ) when u will select what class u want and what skills u will take .
It’s important  to do not do mistake .

Since you are 20 level, u will leave that town and go on an other town there u will can xp more easier .

I Die from monsters , What mistake  i did ?
You must have that equipments  always :

  • Armor ( Wear it )
  • Weapon + Soulshot/bless spiritshot (Fighter or mage)
  • Jewels
  • Potions
  • Buffs
  • I Went to the mobs that are more level than me

What is the aim of the game?
At the begin , u must level up and go to the max ( Full is 80 (Interlude) 85 (Gracia , freya) )
The aim of the game are the fights near the other players,so u must be more stronger for no dying so easy .

You must take the properly items ( gears ) for be more STRONGER ! (It counts on ur class too)

Next  , u will join in one clan where u will go together with other players to take better items for be more better on PvPs(You Must Be On A clan for support them and they support you , L2 Is team game )

Overall  Infos for the game

Xp System
At Lineage II u level up by killing mobs(monsters)
u can learn the power of them by see their color(or u have a specially patch for see how many level they are )

Red : 9 level or more bigger  than you
Light red :  6-8 level bigger than u
Yellow : 3-5 level bigger than u
White : -2level <->+ 2 level of you
Green : 2-5 level smaller than u
Light Blue : 6-8 level smaller than u
intense blue : 9 or more level smaller than u

By leveling up u will learn more skills and we wear other grade of armor!

Grades :
We can’t wear random Grades . It has  some grades that u wear by leveling up .
1-19 level we wear no grade
20-39 D
40-51 C
51-61 B
61-76 A
76-79 S
80-83 Dynasty/Icarus/Morai
84-85 Vesper/Vorpal/Elegia

According to them,take appropriate  SOULSHOTS
Of course if u are 84 level u can wear d grade but not the different soulshot . Soulshots max are S Grade , if u wearing s grade/dynasty/icarus/vesper use s grade soulshots .

General Information about buffs
Buff are some skills,that are done by others or sometimes by you(selfbuffs) that increase your stats
In many servers,you get them in a NPC buffer located in town,which many times can give u all kind of them,or atleast most of them

Normally,you get buffs from other classes
this is done,so these classes are beeing playable

If you are a wizard,you must increase Cast speed,Matk,Pdef,Mdef,Speed etc
If you are fighter,you must increase crit rate,crit dmg,att spd,Patk,evasion,speed,pdef,mdef etc

Be careful with buff limit
ex,if server has 24 buff slots(talking about IL) if u get more than 24,the first buffs goes away
in Gracia chronicles,buffs are specialized,to BUFFS and Dance/Songs

General Information about Dyes!

They are very stong mobs,that need more than 6-10 people in most circumstances

There are raidbosses for clan reputation points
There are raid bosses for unique items(like valakas)

Best raid bosses ,who drop very good things are

In L2 you won’t need to make many quests,sadly,like all other mmorpgs
especially in a private,you will only need to make few of them
these are

– Get a pet! (level 15)
– First Class Change Quest (Level 20)

Certification skillsCertification skills,are some skills that u learn by some sub-classes
A big feature,after IL
by them,you can learn skills that can give you a boost in pvps(like atk speed,pdef etc) in chance xd
More information Here

Attribute system

Each character skills have an attribute
like water,fire,wind
mages skills have an attribute 90% of times,and that’s something that categorizes them
px Necro skills have DARK,spellhowler’s ones are dark+wind,sps water etc
after Gracia,there is attribute stone system
i would make a guide for this,but there is one perfect Here

Or Personal Reputation Points
you get them by castle siege,fortress siege,terittory wars and festival of darkness

with them you can get PVP armor/PVP weapons,that boost you even better(do it in master near grand olympiad in rune& aden)
more information Here

Seven Signs
Seven Signs is a retail event of Lineage2
it lasts 2 weeks
one week,you can register in one of two sides(dawn or dust lol i don’t remember)
in this week,you can enter in ANY catacomb you want,and acquire Mantras(u make them Ancient Adena after)
in second week,if your ‘team’ wins(dawn most times) you can exchange mantras for AA and AA for items,like cp potion,bsoe etc
and only winners can get into catacombs the second week
notice that u can register only in 1st week

L2,as official doesn’t have GMSHOP’s(don’t look for one if u join one xd)
So,armors/weapons/jewels MUST be crafted(and other mats,like soulshots/arrows)
Only Maestro class can make quality craft(high level,armors etc)

Some Armors/weapons have 60/100% rate,so there is a chance that it will fail!

Many items(especially mats) are found difficulty
If you are a Fortune seeker(dwarf) you can make item easier than normal way
you can use SPOIL skill,and when mob dies you earn more items than just drops!

In game Lineage 2,and in most MMORPG,you can enchant many things in your inventory(such as weapon/armors) to gain boost vs other characters
In retail servers,safe is +3(safe enchant) and it has 2/3 chance to be successfully enchanted
In private servers(what we mostly play) they may have changed it(so care)
You can obtain enchants by drops,etc,but in most servers they are at Gmshops
(a little tip:Even 90% isn’t big chance,care)

also,there is blessed enchant,where our weapons when breaks,isn’t converted at crystals but at +0

In newer chronicles,when u enchant armors/jwels! you gain HP!

Also,armor sets +6 give more boosts!
(note:What we want to enchant,must be same grade with scroll and type)

SA system
A big part of all MMORPG games :)
In them,you have to go at many NPC ,and they tell you to do some things,and in the end,when you complete it you get rewarded
rewards may be adena,or an item,or a way to get into a raidboss etc!
Also,there are quests for Class Change,and Nobless/subclass

2)Always have buffs
3)Always have dyes when needed in a class
4)Always have nobless quest done
