Originally posted by chazmyr LOL if you want to play, get out your credit card, and buy Adena online, cause that's the only way you'll make it in this BOT infested, BOT controlled economy, BOTBOTBOTBOT! But, if you decide to, make friends, join a HUGE clan, and hope they can help you, because it's late in the game, and you can NEVER make it solo.
~MMOs~Lineage II - Played 4 years and quit.
GW: Factions - Boring community, quit 4 months.
Perfect World - Free and good enough to keep playing. I enjoy it so far.
Hey ! Welcome
U will surely find a good clan and member in lineage ][.

Originally posted by Jukan Imho no instances is a plus! So is open PvP...But I guess that is why I play L2.The rift, and the soon to be dino island thing is going to be enough instance for me...
Originally posted by Asko Hey,i have similar dilemma as orginal poster except im coming from Anarchy Online which is first and only mmo i'v played.Been eyeballing for a new game i might enjoy and found plenty of information about Lineage 2 thru these forums. (thx for that )Anyways, if any of you have played AO i would wery much appreciate some sort of perspective about what i'd be getting in to, and ofcourse the much spoken level grind of Lineage 2 compared to AO.I did most of the grinds in AO apart from faction and everyone being billioneers from farming ingots, 1 man alien city's and 220's killing all dynas screwed up economy or spending time for your money/gear is not entirely unheard of Thank you in advance,Asko
- Grinding is around big time. With everything. Farming SP, adena or xp. (In other words grinding 200-220 on hecklers will seem like a cake walk)
- PvP is around big time. I walk around Devianne and think we have a mature and fun server. PK-ers walk around with their fame but it's not that bad. You will need a guild to get everything out of this game.
- Only red named players have a chance for dropping their stuff, otherwise you cant drop a thing. Some call this a good thing, some call it a bad thing. As a player it's a good thing, it removes griefing from the game (It's bad enough to get trained on purpose, it's worse when you loose a piece of armor you worked weeks for)
I only played AO for a very short time so I don't have a very good comparison for the economy. AO is built pretty much on the same design ideas as L2, grind is good. AO just had laser guns. (it was much better then SWG however) If I had played this game years ago when it was still a bit fresh I might have gotten into it. I'm a graphics whore sometimes so AO was just to dated looking for me when I tried it last year.
L2 has a very tough economy. Really the ONLY thing that makes it hard is the fact that the game uses a "shop" system meaning that you need to leave your character logged on to sell. Thats the big downfall. The person who opts to leave his PC running wins at the economy. If you don't mind doing this and have 3 or 4 working braincells, you will be able to make money in L2.
The game more or less addresses any money issues in the form or the "manor system" and the "Seven Signs" quest. People who boo hoo the economy either never tried/never played/don't understand or just don't have any patience.
The key to the game is guilds. If you are anti-social, want to lone wolf, you won't make it far. Its a Guild vs Guild game. The world revolves around the resulting politics. If you don't like the sound of that, L2 isn't for you.
If you can filter through all the negitive BS that some of these knotheads leave (myself included) and still think it sounds like a good game, its probably worth a try.

Nevermind, go play something you do like and stop trolling.
Thanks for the newsflash
Lineage 2 is a very good game, iv also been considering giving it another go aswell.
Lineage 2 is like an orgasm, it takes time to hit your goals, it feels great when you do, but after, you are left knowing it will be a while before you hit another.
I guess the only downside is the botters which are unacceptable, still if you dont let them ruin your game then there is no reason why you wont enjoy this game.

While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, "give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404."
