Looking for someone to play a hardcore mmo with.

Light616Light616 Member UncommonPosts: 20
Hi,

I'm looking for someone, or a couple of people, interested in playing a hardcore old school mmorpg - Lineage 2.
The game is best enjoyed with a couple of people and good communication for killing bosses, instances, pvp, quests, gearing and progressing in general.
The game  relies on the classic party structure - healer, buffer, damage dealer, tank.
It also has very interesting and deep rpg mechanics with all sorts of stats. Probably more than any other mmo I've played. Tho it's not at all imperative to know everything straight away, and if you're not familiar with the game, i will additionally explain things as needed.

Sadly none of my rl friends are interested in playing a slow progressing, hardcore mmo as this.
So, if anyone is interested ( english speaking, age 21+ ), post a comment, and we can give it a go.

    I'm down. I'm on Lineage 2 warland if you want to join me. I got all recipes registered to craft up to b grade, and have a high level craft for every recipe wanted. I also have 80 sps/76 titan (both geared), 79 phantom ranger, and some other b grade toons.

    I think you and I have the same mindset and enjoy long progression (and the rewarding feeling that comes with it). I'm 34, and have been playing rpg's since nes (5yrs old). Feel free to whisper me voip (voice over IP; ts, ventrilo, raidcall, skype, ect...) and we can meet up.

    What I plan on working on next is creating 1 spoiler every 5 levels (starting at level 30). They have a turn exp off feature so I don't have to worry about deleveling them. At the moment I have everything needed to help others acquire mats/recipees needed to craft D, C, and B gear.

    I Quit.

    Awesome. But I mean the official servers. http://www.lineage2.com/en/
    Tell me if you're interested.

    I already have a lv. 101 Rogue Wind Rider. But at that point the game becomes impossibly hard. Playing with a random group isn't an option. And my clan is kinda dead. So, wanna get some cool people for a party, so that we can eventually progress further.

    Oh, sorry I quit those when GOD came out and they became p2w (along with killing class diversity, starter towns, and many other things that made the game unique). I have no interest in returning there.

    I Quit.

    ok. But the game is a lot deeper and more complex than it was back then. There is ton of nuance between different classes of the same type, which expanded a lot over the years.  And is continuing to change with every expansion. And the ability tree ( skill tree ) at lv. 99 ( starting at lv. 85 next expansion ). It's also harder than ever.
    If you change your mind, let me know. Knowing the basics, you would find it a lot easier to figure out the new stuff than someone who never played the game.
    And if anyone else is interested, let me know as well.

    I'm sort of interested.  I play healer and actually have a character on that server, I think.  Elven Healer.  The problem is I gave all my gear away a long time ago so I wouldn't come back.

    I would be into starting over or w/e you have in mind.

    Hey, that's great.
    Download the game http://www.lineage2.com/en/  
    Make an account if you don't already have one. ( They deleted some inactive old accounts a couple of years back )
    And tell me at what times you can play.
  • thedrakonthedrakon Member UncommonPosts: 213
    I played some year ago. Left because playing alone an old game you don't know much isn't really great.
    I'm currently enjoying myself in BDO. I'm wondering if your proposition could be interesting. I love playing tank and could give a 1-3 hour on week day from 8-9PM EST to 11PM EST. 
    Someday more, someday left. Depend on weekend.
    If my schedule can fit, I could go with a trial to start, since my old account my be dead.

    I'm pretty open as far as playtime.  I'll download it now.   Is gear aquisition still night impossible without RMT?  Is a healer useful to you?  I only like healer/buffer classes.

    @thedrakon

    Ok. The game is free to play ( completely free - no locked content ). So, just make an account and you're good to go. I can add you on skype, just pm me.

    If anyone else is interested, now is a good time to join us.

    Yes, its possible. But its real hardcore without RMT. Like always. A slow burn. And  that's how i plan on playing it. And let's see how far we can get :)

    Yes, healer is very useful, essential. And it's great you're willing to play it :) Also healer can get by with much less gear, especially in the beginning. 

    Also, pm me your skype.

    I have a character on Naia. Was planning on starting there, so I can mentor us.

    How often can you play?

    Naia is Euro so that will not work for me. I played Lineage 2 for about 10 years and stopped last year. Been thinking of going back.

    Every day. Unless something unexpected comes up. Or we agree to take a break.
  • tadams2tonetadams2tone Member UncommonPosts: 59
    Is Naia located in EU?  That might be a problem for me, ping wise.  If the server is still located In NA It's fine.

    All NCWest servers are in Texas. Yes, Naia will be more active a couple of hours earlier than Chronos, but the plan is to play with our own party.

    Lol, just logged on the pain of realizing you gave away a bazillion dollars worth of stuff and also deleted your character. >.<

    i think the lack of punctuation makes this sound like I deleted my character XD.

    What time are Sieges and Olympiad?

  • tadams2tonetadams2tone Member UncommonPosts: 59
    So I guess I'll roll an elven healer.  I will be honest, I have some reservations.  Last I remembered, gold and drops were nerfed and the game became quite ptw.  Correct me if I'm wrong?

    Anyway, wanna msg me your in game name?  I'll probably start leveling tomorrow.  Are we meeting after the path to awakening or what?

    We can also adjust the starting times tomorrow or later on, depending on who joins, who doesn't and what times we can agree on. Talk more tomorrow.

    Nah, we'll start together from level 1. While we don't need a party at the very beginning ( and the early quests are solo ),  we will need a party for raids, which speed up leveling. And just to figure out what we're doing, and lay some plans for later on. I'll also suggest best classes we would need. And explain other stuff.

    I will be playing a Titan. Name is  - Doom . Tho i played a bit today already, so I'll make a new char just so we level together. Once we reach lv. 61, I'll switch to Doom and continue.

    8 PM ( 9 PM summer )  Naia is GMT+1, Chronos is GMT-2. Tho I don't plan on doing either. There is no competing with people who've played for 10+ years and/or are spending a ton of money on the game. The main focus will be PvE and figuring out the best ways to get gear and progress at our own pace.
