A new Lineage II blog has cropped up with information about two new classes, a new zone and a new raid boss that will be featured in the Goddess of Destruction update scheduled to be rleased later this fall. The Othell Rogue and Aeore Healer are detailed and fans can also learn about the Prison of Darkness zone and Spezion, the raid boss who lives within.
Rogue-class players will find a lot of fun new abilities in the Othell Rogue that will let you hone in your gaming skills by bringing strategy and finesse into your playstyle. Generally, rogue-types characters should be sneaky, agile and deadly, and move around stealthily while swiping coin purses and attacking with daggers when the enemy's guard is down. Currently in Lineage II, rogue classes have daggers and stealth, but otherwise they simply hack and slash and hope that the enemy will die before they do. Yes, rogue classes die a lot. Well, Othell Rogues will have a longer life thanks to increased evasion stats and many skills that combine evasion with combat attacks, self buffs, enemy debuffs, or enemy target cancellation. Aside from getting out of dangerous situations, Rogues can also control the fight from the start by initiating the attack with powerful damage-over-time skills and debuffs that can slow the enemy so much that it dies before it reaches you. Rogues can provide these benefits for a party, too, in exchange for a tank that keeps the enemy diverted so that the rogue can backstab and flank to their heart's content. Finally, the last missing quality that rogues should have in general is granted as well. Othell Rogues can plunder items from the enemy while it's still alive--who says only Dwarves get to be "spoiled?"
