I don't mind grinding at all since I come from a background of Korean and mostly Asian MMORPGs, is L2 a good game with a good community?  Are there a lot of people playing?

    There's a sizable community. I too am thinking about coming back. FFXI was fun for me but because school is starting, I don't have big chunks of time to devote to FFXI.

    Awesome game! There are bad people and good people. You just have to find the right group. Me and my RL friend made our own clan togeather and now it has 10 people in it active all the time, and during clan events it can have up to 17 people on or so. Don't let a random punk destroy your outlook.

    There are bots, but they usually get banned every few months in mass bannings. Ebaying money is about as prevailant as any other MMO, but in this one it hurts when someone beats you over the head with a ebayed uber weapon. Farmers are about the same as any MMO except it is kinda nice because most use bots so you don't have to deal with the Farmer BS. And usually you can tell them to leave for a while and they will.

    Awesome pvp, but you will have to lvl up a bit. Clan system is great. And although many may not agree, I love the class system too. Graphics are the sexiest on the market.

    Also another note. This is also a time consuming game. I too go to college, but I still find some time to play it. You can play at your own pace and experience some things even though it won't really take off until lvl 40+. Which can take you 3 days depending on how hardcore you are. But don't burn yourself out! hehe

    Give it a try, you may like it. Esspecially if you are use to Korean MMO grind.

    If you have played many games with WASD movement it may take you a while to get use to point and click. IMO I wouldn't really want WASD movement in L2 since I have gotten use to the point and click method. I think it is great and dosn't hinder gameplay at all. If it hindered gameplay the dev's would have went with another format or made it so it wouldn't hinder game play. L2 was designed for point and click, and thus works very well.

    Been through alot of mmo's now and Lineage 2 is the only one I enjoy alot. The community is great. Get yourself in a clan and download ventrilo and the grind is almost gone. Botters and the economy are the only downsides I can think of. But thoses petty downsides are far out wieghed by the biggest raids in any mmo and the biggest pvp which is an excellent reward for the "grind"

    you hardly even notice the grind as long as you have nice ppl tot talk to, and maybe fire up lineage radio, and it makes it easy/fun to lvl

    and the click movement works REALLY well in this game, imho


    My god has horns.... nah, I don't think he is real either.

    I started playing on the weekend, and was a bit put out with the point and click.  It doesn't take long to get used to, especially if you've played NWN.  I still sometimes feel the need for direct control though, especially when swimming.

    As for population.  I originally started on the Lionna server as it's the unofficial RP community.  The newbie areas were deserts.  When I found out about the siege and event times being north american friendly times I created a character on the euro server.  A huge difference.  The euro server is the newest one, and therefore a) has UK friendly event times, and b) the newbie areas are full of pathetic weaklings like me =D
