Interested in Playing Metin2?
If you haven't already started your download, please do so: http://www.metin2.us/download.htm
First of all, why would you want to try Metin2? Like many other MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games), Metin2 consists of warriors, assassins, hunters, mages and dark mages (Suras, in this game). So, what makes Metin2 unique? This game has a unique battle interface unlike any other. The fighting animation, i.e. swinging of the sword, actually hits all other monsters that are currently around you. If that doesn't please you, imagine countless quests, hundreds of monsters and skills, and a vast world to explore. This game is free to play, forever, and items may be purchased from the item mall in order to enhance your experience. Getting Started

You can now choose a country of your choice. Milgaard, Listhmos, and Dendera. There are no differences between the three countries, in terms of the characters you use. What differs, however, is the community, and the terrain. You may want to browse around the forums, find a person you like, and join their nation. I’m in Listhmos, it's the smallest nation.
Now you get to choose a character. Metin2’s unique character system allows you to choose from several different classes; assassin, warrior, sura and mage.
These four classes are further separated at level 5, where you can choose a specific class, called “Forces”.Warriors are separated into:
Arahan Force – A powerhouse class focusing on attack speed and damage. Their signature skills, heroic strike and whirlwind, deal massive damage to the enemy. An offensive type.
Partisan Force – A defensive heavy class, focusing on mainly high defense, rather than offense. Their signature skill, might, allows them to tank entire maps alone at early levels.
McMann’s guide to warriors is fairly helpful, though the path you want to take is up to you. http://bbs.metin2.us:8080/viewth ... &extra=page%3D1Assassins are separated into:
Hunter Force (Bows) – Hunters deal deadly damage from far away. Note that the further you are from the monster, the less damage you deal. This class is heavily underplayed, but their presence is invaluable in pulling monsters. Late game hunters are known to be deadly in PVP.

Assassin Force (Daggers) – Assassins can use stealth and preach around the map. They also deal heavy damage, but are underplayed due to their low armour. Their signature skill, getaway, is difficult to use, but can score you HUGE damage.

Additionally, The88thcrazy has a nice distribution of stat points here:http://bbs.metin2.us:8080/viewth ... &extra=page%3D1Suras are divided into:
Black Magic Suras – Are known to be one of the most deadly PVP classes. Ritual of Doom and Dark Fire are painful skills.

Mirage Sura – Dark Twister and Aura of Sword are important skills used by Suras.

Lightning Force Mages – Rely on the forces of nature to heal and deal damage.

Dragon Force: - Relies on the mighty powers of the dragon to do area of effect damage.
There is currently no guide for Dragon force mages, although at high levels, they are supposedly very strong.
What does each stat point do?
Con – Increases health points, HP regeneration and AC (defense)
Dex – Increases DR (Damage reduced) slightly, increases Damage silghtly
Str – Increases damage dealt
Int – Increases mana pool, MP regeneration, Magic Attack and Magic Resistance Metins, or the big glowing rocks
If you happen to come across a big glowing rock, while exploring the world of Metin2, these rocks are what we call METINS. These rocks will randomly spawn monsters of a similar level as you hit them, and sometimes drop rare items
. It is believed that when someone is hitting a metin, you should ask before hitting it. The decision is in your hands, and your reputation may be on the line.
Opening a Shop
You can open a shop by purchasing the white bag (forgot the exact name, a "package" I think?) at your local trade vendor. After entering a shop name and putting all your items in, remember to hit OKAY, to open your shop.Spirit Stones
So you found a spirit stone, now what? Spirit stones are special rocks that you can put inside your armour or weapon (with a 30% success rate) that enhance your weapon or armours capabilities. Simply drag the stone onto an unequipped piece of armour or weapon to add the stone. More information can be found here:http://bbs.metin2.us:8080/viewth ... &extra=page%3D1Skill Books
After reaching 17 – 20 points in a certain skill. You can consider that skill as being MASTERED (your skill will be M1). You can use a skill book with 30% success rate, to further increase your skill from M1->M2
More information about skill books can be found here: http://bbs.metin2.us:8080/viewth ... &extra=page%3D1
The blacksmith is where you upgrade items. There is no definite rate in which the blacksmith upgrades your items. Just remember that your armour or weapon has a chance of breaking at EVERY LEVEL. Drag your unequipped piece of weapon or armour onto the blacksmith to upgrade your weapon. The blacksmith requires items to upgrade your armour or weapon sometimes. These items are called “upgrading materials” and are thigns such as piece of gems, bear galls, bear gall + , etc etc. Upgrading an item to +8 or +9 often adds a shining, sparkly tone to your weapon or armour.Joining a Guild
Joining a guild provides a more enjoyable playing experience. To create a guild, speak to the guard in your local town. To join a guild, someone from a guild with recruiting powers can invite you. However, do not expect to be invited into a guild right away. Like in most MMO's, a lot of guilds have level requirements. If there are no level requirements, you probably just need to be a friendly, helpful player. This means NO "stealing" people's metin kills. That is, if someone is attacking already whacking a metin, ask if they need help, or just walk by and find another metin. An advantage of joining a guild are that you have players and friends that can help you out. Another advantage is that a guild party can grant you bonus experience.
