  1. What is the appeal of L2 Classic? I was super hyped when the servers first opened and had purchased that $30 beginner pack or whatever it was called. Then came P2W event after event, built in auto farming, etc. and I gave up. I'm trying to come back and level a new character but I don't understand why I would after seeing what I see. Every single farming spot is taken over either by bots or by a party run by a single person just auto farming for literal DAYS without leaving, which leaves you with picking up the scraps wherever you go for minimal exp. You can't even contest farming spots anymor
  2. That is due to the server lagging. It has happened since the dawn of auto SS.
  3. Take a look at the passive skill named "Spellcraft". This will give you an understanding of why you cast faster in robes.
  4. @Ingwaz, listen to @xHaseo. Everything he has said is spot on. I quit playing L2 a month or two ago and refuse to come back. I still peruse the forums for some unknown reason, maybe in hopes that things will be fixed, maybe because I'm an idiot. But DO NOT continue spending money on this game hoping that "eventually" it will become true classic. It never has been and never will be. When these servers first opened me and 5 other friends were excited to come back. We all purchased the $30 "founders pack" or w/e it was called that gave VIP 3 and some bonus items. One of those 5 friends deci
  5. Sorry to tell you, my friend, but they will not do anything about this. What I've done is quit playing, regardless of how much I wanted a retail classic server to prevail. You have no idea how excited I was to hear that NCsoft was going to release an NA server with low rates. I can't stand the high ping I get from connecting to illegal servers, and I was so excited to have a legal server located near me. 2 VIP 4 accounts, both of which I made further minor purchases on throughout the months. Oh well, you live and you learn. Good luck!
  6. Right, and now there is no subscription fee, and Lineage 2 is F2P. So it's not an "odd demand" to discuss F2P tactics within L2. Regardless of what you want to restrict your conversation to, the topic has been about F2P tactics since the beginning. POE is an isometric hack and slash RPG that just happens to be online. Warframe is a 3rd person hero shooter looter HOTS and DOTA are MOBAS... GW2 was buy to play and "recently" went F2P. Only the base game is free, WHICH IS THERE TO ENTICE YOU TO PURCHASE THE OTHER EXPANSIONS. GW2 has several P2W items in their cash shop. You c
  7. I played since C2, so I understand how NCsoft works. I also played Lineage 1 extensively. I know you like to mention that you've played this game for ages, you mention it in almost every post you make. But we're talking about F2P L2, not when it was a subscription based game. EVERY F2P MMORPG IS PAY TO WIN IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. Also, thank you for proving my point. None of those games listed are MMORPGs.
  8. Oh wise one, show me a popular F2P MMORPG that doesn't have overbearing benefits for their paying players! Yes, you were naive and ignorant enough to think any event L2 has had since the dawn of L2 events hasn't been P2W...
  9. Every single event will have a paywall behind the good items. What I don't understand is why people are even putting effort toward these posts! Understand that every single event going forward will have a huge incentive to pay with real money. This is a F2P game, that is how they work.
  10. Nah, I just don't like to be wasteful =)
  11. Bye! Have fun with your carebear game! Mail me your stuff!
  12. Item grade penalty removal - I love this, now I can play around on alt characters and feel like I'm not losing out on countless hours of time that could have been spent on my main. I like making alts and playing new classes for fun, and this makes it so much more bearable. I turn 30 this year, I don't have as much free time as I did when I was a teenager playing Lineage 2 but I still love the classic feel. Global gatekeeper- Thank the heavens. The old gatekeeper system was cumbersome and expensive. This makes it so much easier to visualize where areas are and just go directly to it. No lo
  13. Nobody is forcing you to use the new auto hunt feature. In fact, it's actually much faster to farm without using it. Yet you're using it anyway and come to the forums to complain. Don't like it? Don't use it. It's that simple. What's wrong with removing armor grade penalty? Are the low levels THAT much fun to you? After leveling countless characters through 1-40 I can say having a little help along the way is pretty nice, but that's just me.
  14. I've seen you mention this so many times in different threads. I also played other grindy korean games before I started Lineage 2, so it wasn't my first rodeo. I had friends who played since day 1 who knew way more about the game than I did that helped me out. Your ONLY advantage was that you had 4 accounts, and that's why you had an advantage over other players. There were maybe only a handful of people willing to pay $15 a month for 4 accounts. Farming with buffs vs farming without buffs made a HUGE difference back then. The only time that I was farming and came out greatly on top of what I
  15. On the topic of adena rates, I think we have it much better than we did before (Mainly due to the events though). I started back in C2, and I still actually have the C3 and C4 souvenirs on the live servers to show for that. I remember having to farm in the perfect spots just to break even to afford soulshots to continue farming. I would find maybe 5 items from 1-40? I couldn't ever dream of affording D grade so I had to borrow a manticore set and a mithril dagger from a friend who bought adena. I had to do the same thing for C, B, but at level 64 I was finally able to buy A grade. This is beca

  17. Well they just removed the bot report button in the update tomorrow. I guess I got what I wanted..?
  18. Right because everyone can afford to craft or buy S grade at lvl 1....
  19. Am I reading this wrong, or did I just see that songs and dances require level 84..?
  20. @Juji says the drop rate depends on current server load. What I noticed recently is that my character's do not find Oriana's coins until I'm farming mobs that are very close to level 20 or above.
  21. I like to call it the placebo button because like you said, you need a lot of people to report the bots for it to do anything. With how many people are botting, there's not enough real people to report the same account. This is even more difficult if they are running a bot train... How do you know that the 3-4 real people that pass by them are all reporting the same character? Very unlikely. You're right, I could take screenshots, videos, do all of that and send it to support, but I shouldn't have to in the first place. I don't mind farming for spellbooks for days on end, but having to co
  22. Farming spellbooks is already difficult, only made more difficult by the sheer amount of bots farming in Ivory Tower and Sea of Spores. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I went to a farming area and saw a live player. I can maybe get an hour of farming in at Ivory Tower around 2AM MST before it gets completely flooded by bots. Some of the bots are "okay" because as soon as you tag the mob the bot will turn away. The biggest issue, however, are the aggressive bots that will actively attempt to steal the kill from you by either one shotting it because they're, of course, a summoner bot,
  23. There are copious amounts of bots residing deep within forgotten temple. All groups are dwarves followed by an melee orc, and a dark elf caster...
  24. There's been a lot of discussion lately on the forums about only being able to run one single client per computer, and an equal amount of backlash from the community in regards to this. I don't think a true box server is inherently a bad idea. Look at EverQuest 1. For the past few years they have been putting out "True Box" servers which require a $15 subscription, and you may only run one client per computer. Now, this doesn't stop everyone from multi-boxing but it does a great deal against it. The most important thing that True Box servers do for the community is allow a wide varia
