  1. @Juji, thank you for checking. I went back and tried to duplicate everything. I wasn't successful until I swapped out my emerald for another jewel. So, this was not a bug at all. Just a forgetful mistake on my part. Again, thank you for your time. Have a lovely day.
  2. @Juji @Hime, The following has happened twice now when I've gone to Primeval Island. On my main character, I've completed Exalted 6, which added +1 to all core stats. I checked the stats before and after. For example, STR went from 59 to 60 after applying the new book. Twice when I've gone to Primeval Island. I began fighting mobs, as usual. But when I checked my stats again, all had dropped back to pre-Exalted 6 levels (e.g. I lost the +1 so STR went from 60 back to 59). When my time on Primeval finished, I returned to town and went to a regular hunting spot. All stats returned with +1 again. Please note, I have not tested this on the other two timed spots.
  3. Just go to the NPC (Cardinal outside the church in Oren) and get the quest for the 80k mobs. You will be able to do either the original quests or the 80k quest. You don't need to delete the original.

    Hello. I've never tracked that myself (how many days to get to 99). I play pretty casually (not every day due to work/being a Mom/etc.) so I'm unable to say what your experience might be. I agree with Auburn that I seemed to get more parties once I hit 99+. It just seemed like more players were in that 99-103 range and there always seemed to be something going on. If you do try to reach your goal within 60 days, I'd hope you'll come back and share your experience with everyone! Good luck!
  5. Skill Power - how it work?

    Hello, SleepingPower. I focused on the example (Feoh) that you provided in your original post because I thought you could find the answers you're searching for in the class forum of one of the game's most popular classes. But you are correct, I could also have suggested Yuls or Isses for the same reason. The link to the EU game forum was given simply to help with your questions had you wanted to check for yourself. I tend to look at several sources for information when I'm checking into something (reddit, non-NA official forums, etc). Enjoy your day.
  6. Skill Power - how it work?

    Hello, SleepingPower. Have you considered posting this on the "Wizard" subforum? I'm not sure the hardcore, math-loving Feohs check this forum much. Also, you might find some previous discussion of this by searching that forum. Oh, and I think the L2 EU forums actually have a section where someone tests a lot of this stuff. L2 EU forum - Class discussions: https://eu.4gameforum.com/forums/398/ L2 EU Experimentation forum: https://eu.4gameforum.com/forums/413/

    Hello, kkkkkkkkk. From level 85 to level 99, I used +3 and +4 Immortal R-grade and immortal jewels from using mentee diplomas. Gems and a shirt from completing the Adventure Guild quests. I did not switch to R-95 gear when I reached that level because I was saving my adena for R-99. By doing dailies and instances (and selling items from events like Oriana, Red Libra, and Freya) I could afford a full R-99 Robe set when I hit level 99. A couple of the armor pieces did not have full element on them but it was simple enough to buy the elemental stones I was missing to add it myself. I think if you don't have a ton of adena, consider buying clean gear that has already been enchanted and then work on adding the elemental stones/crystals yourself. Overenchanting gear is painful (and expensive!) so this is one way to go. You may find someone selling +6 or better armor pieces that don't have any (or has only a few) elements on it, and it will be a better option than trying to buy a +10 full elem gear on the auction house within a reasonable price range. The one difference to this is the weapon. Always try to buy the best weapon you can afford, but again if you have to get one that isn't "perfect," try to buy one that has a good enchant level and then add the elem attack attribute yourself. Gear is a bigger deal after you reach 99+ because you'll begin moving into tougher hunting areas and instances.
  8. Faction Level HELP

    The overview of Exalted is here: https://l2wiki.com/Noblesse#Exalted Eventually, you'll need Level 6 in both Blackbird Clan and Giant Trackers, and then "...level 6 with at least 2 factions from the list: Mother Tree Guardians, Unworldly Visitors, Kingdom’s Royal Guard." You have a long way to go. Work on Adventure Guild leveling because it gives you good items and gets you XP for those quests. When you begin the Exalted quests, you'll spend a lot of time working on the first three (main 3 exalted quest lines) before you can even start the last two exalted quest lines.
  9. Dualclass question

    Yes, you are correct, @cmquake ! I had a DC before changing it to a Hiero. I forgot that the individual buffs belong to the Hiero, BD and SwS - while DC's get the Harmonies.
  10. Faction Level HELP

    Hello. Please visit this page on the L2Wiki: https://l2wiki.com/Factions There is a tab for each faction. You can see the quests connected to that faction. Everyone starts with the Adventure Guild and then you could move to the Blackbird faction (Hellbound).
  11. Just coming back

    Hello and welcome back. Here are some things to consider doing: * Exalted status (https://l2wiki.com/Noblesse#Exalted). These are a series of quests that connect. Exalted lvl1-lvl3 will end with you getting an exalted cloak, exalted tiara, and a few new skills/buffs along the way. You'll hunt in areas that will open up new factions for you like the Blackbird faction (Hellbound) or Giant's cave. These can be tackled with just you and your boxes for a while. * Gear. Working on your gear (armor, weapons, jewelry, etc) is an ongoing process for many (myself included!). You'll also look into tattoos for your DD and Healer; gems; etc. If adena is a concern, focus primarily on your DD (you didn't say what you have: Feoh, Yul, ??) if that's the class you play the most. You might not be able to perfectly gear out both (for example, a separate weapon with different SAs for each class). If you tend to play the Healer once in a while, the R95 gear/weapon is fine for now. If you play both classes equally, you will need to spend some time on the DD and Healer forums to see what items you'll have to shoot for over time. * Dailies. In general, doing the different faction (https://l2wiki.com/Factions) daily quests will be how you progress from level to level. You could log in each day and only do the faction quests. That would take a couple of hours, but at least it's more meaningful than running Kartia, Kama and CC/Baylor then logging off. * Solo spots. Again, where you have to hunt for factions is pretty much where you'll end up soloing to grind XP. GreenCrusher listed some solo locations. Check them out and see how you do XP wise, managing the mobs, etc.
  12. How to start again?

    I think the Eva's rune (skill cooldown/reflect damage) makes it worthwhile for some classes. But the XP runes are what give the biggest benefit if you plan to AFK macro most of the time. If you planned to play live, I'd say just use XP buff items (like Freya's Ice Rose, for example) and refresh it every 30-minutes.
  13. Dualclass question

    I'm glad you found some useful information from my post. Okay, let's unpack a few things further. You will need someone who plays a Yul to provide advice because I've never played that class and would feel terrible to give you poor information. With your Summoner, your weapon is probably going to be a staff (one or two handed). So, right away, if you made a Yul, you will need a different weapon for it. I've read that archers need really "good" gear. I THINK that means you will need at least a light set that is +8 but +10 would be preferred (hopefully a Yul will verify this for you). I also don't know what additional Yul accessories you'd need and if those items could also be used for a Summoner. A Mage class will definitely need different gear. Summoners (physical attacks) are not considered mages (magic attacks). Mages do need robes and a staff weapon. Accessories (jewelry, etc) would be different between the two classes as well. Do you need a dual? Well, that is up to you, of course, but as I mentioned: summoners don't get any love in this game once you hit Lvl100+. If you want to get into parties easily, you'll need to play a class other people want. Yuls are wanted. So are Feohs. Having a dual gives you options. It could give you more opportunities to play the game rather than having to log off in frustration day after day because parties want AOE DDs. If you eventually want to do the Exalted quests, you will need Nobless AND a dual class. That dual will need to hit the same level milestones as your main. Even if you're not sure you wanted Exalted status, already having a dual class close to the same level as your main class will save you a lot of time (and frustration). Again, I thought my Summoner was the best class ever - until I hit 100 with it. Trust me when I tell you, it becomes so painful to play a Summoner later in the game that you may just quit (I know people who did because of this).
  14. How to start again?

    The Prestige Pack does not come with an XP rune. You'll need to buy the XP rune from the L2Store or from a player shop.
  15. How to start again?

    Hello and welcome back. If you plan to stick with your Summoner (please search the forum for how difficult this class is after Lvl100, just to be certain), the clearest path is through the Adventure Guild (faction) quests. These dailies don't actually take a lot of time, in my opinion, to finish but some are very boring (e.g. Bloody Swampland quests). This is a link to quests from lvl85 to 99, which include the Adventure Guild I mentioned: https://l2wiki.com/Quests_for_Levels_85—99 Have you leveled up a subclass? If yes, you can make it a Dual Class. That info is here: https://l2wiki.com/Dualclass Leveling a separate Iss is a great idea. Many people box an Iss. I've played an ISS Doomcryer (easy to level up) and an ISS Hierophant. A really fast way to get yourself an ISS is to level an Ertheia character. Once it gets to Lvl85, you will automatically get to choose a lvl85 dual: no need to level a subclass from lvl40 again.
  16. Dualclass question

    Hello. What level is your main and your dual now? You'll get many people (soon probably) who will tell you this hard truth: below level 100, a Summoner is rather fun and easy enough to level. You can solo quite well if you have access to Iss buffs, and a Healer is a bonus if you know one to party with. The trouble for a Summoner comes when you need to move into Faction quests that benefit from AOE damage dealers (Feohs, for example), not target damage dealers (Summoners). You'll have huge difficulty getting into parties even if your current Summoner has decent gear. Most parties want high damage but they also want speed. Shouts for AOE will be the norm when you look in World chat or the party match system. But, you asked about the dual class so I'll try to focus on that. A Healer can AFK in certain situations. For example, in my CP we will set up in the Refinery to do our daily quest. OUr set up allows the healer to create a macro for healing the party in one of the rooms. We've never had a problem unless someone disconnects while we're all AFK. But mostly we just get our quest done and we're off to the next daily. I wouldn't even try to Heal AFK anywhere else near the Blackbird Campsite - too dangerous. An Iss can use any armor type - heavy, light, or robe (although I've never seen one in a robe). So you could use your light set on an Iss (I think +8 gives you a skill cooldown bonus). Thoughts: 1. Always level your Healer in a party. Bare minimum, I think, would be a +4 Robe set which should not be difficult to find. Obviously, a higher level, like +8 Robe would be better for survivability. 2. You didn't say which Healer you have. The Dark Elf has a higher Magic Attack; the Light Elf has faster casting speed; and the Human has a bigger heal (I think). Just curious, really. Healers are not going to kick butt and take names; that's not their purpose. Think group character, not a solo character. 3. During next Red Libra, change your dual class to something else, like a Yul, which also uses light armor but you'll need to buy a bow. Right now, you can use Chaos essence to only change from one type of healer to another type of healer. Red Libra lets you choose almost any class to play. I tend to play mage classes so I'm sorry I can't give better info on all the possible choices you may have. I've found Feohs super easy to level, especially from Lvl85+. I also enjoy playing an Iss. A Doomcryer is very sturdy and has good survivability from day one. At later levels, a Hierophant gets the POM (Power of Might) skill, which is sought after by mages and warrior classes. A Doomcryer gets Chant of Bison that buffs the whole party with a lower "POM-like" buff, but it's still better than none. Other Iss Buffs that are worthwhile: A Bladedancer Iss gets Warrior lvl2; the Swordsinger gets Wizard 2; Doomcryers get Knight 2. In the end, you should definitely play what you enjoy, no matter what. But keep in mind what most parties look for. It's hard to solo effectively after Lvl102-103 so you will need some help regardless. Good luck!
  17. You're welcome. I came back last year and felt a bit overwhelmed, too. If your computer can handle it, consider creating a second account so you can level a fighter or mage class to pair with your healer. L2 allows you to legally run up to three clients of the game on the same computer. And with the help of the in-game macro system, you'll be able to create simple macros like follow, heal, etc. on the healer while playing the fighter or mage. Currently, you can obtain free buffs from the Buff NPC in towns until level 95. I think I read that the next game update will increase the NPC buffing level up to Level 99 to help people who don't have an ISS around. Yes, leveling a healer after you Awaken at lvl85 is painful on your own. It takes a long time to kill anything, and I found it frustrating. My solution was to pause my healer and create a Mage and an Iss. I can now run a 3-person party if I just feel like soloing my daily quests. No need to return to town for fresh buffs. Of course, that also means providing supplies for all my characters but I managed to do so without draining my finances or spending real-world money. Enjoy yourself!
  18. Like you, I returned to the game after playing from 2004 to 2010. It's a very different game now, which means the very first thing I suggest is find a way to manage nostalgia with reality. My husband and I, too, had all the "must have to survive" classes from back then. A Warsmith AND Spoiler were money makers once upon a time. Now? No. There are dozens of Class forums here and on the EU L2 website (search Google for the link) to catch you up on Classes. Suggestions: 1. Take your dwarven classes and make their dual classes whatever you wish. This will allow the work you put into leveling the dwarven main classes no a complete loss of time. For example, you could have a Warsmith main and an ISS Blade Dancer. Thus, sharing the armor (Isses can wear all three types), saving you money on gear. 2. Start new characters from scratch. You can have up to seven on one account. Just choose classes you enjoy playing because asking a bunch of strangers what you should play never made sense to me. We may not share the same enjoyment that you do and vice versa. For example, I am not fond of healer classes, but I enjoy buffer classes. 3. Follow the Path to Awakening quest line/guide to level up relatively quickly from 1 to 85. You'll gain free gear, soul shots, and adena. Some side quests may exist from back when you played the game, but I wouldn't rely solely on that to level up now. Truly, a LOT has changed (quest locations, mob locations, hunting grounds, etc). 4. Join a clan that best fits your goals in the game. Depending on the clan, you may need to prove yourself first before people start helping you with items to protect themselves from freeloaders. But you should be fine if you follow the Path as I've suggested in #3. 5. Adena, overall, will be a challenge for quite a while, but once you hit Level 85 and Awaken, you'll be thrust into a new grind of Faction quests and instances. Do these dailies will begin to build your bank account a little (but not by BILLIONS overnight). You should not have trouble "covering your bills" unless you waste the adena you do get on things you "want" but don't truly "need." The Prestige pack (monthly subscription) is worth it in my opinion. The Runes, as someone here already mentioned, is good to have when you are doing the grind. But you will also do fine if you don't have the Prestige pack. Finally, when you've relearned the game you will make better, smarter choices of where to hunt, what dailies to do, what instances are worth the effort, etc. I hope you fall back in love with L2. Welcome back.
  19. It can be confusing to understand, but maybe this will help. When you get your Main to lvl85, you can select one subclass. That subclass must be leveled up until it reaches lvl80. At lvl80, you get a Subclass certificate and you can use it to get a subclass skill that will benefit your Main class as well. After you get that first subclass to lvl80, you can pick the second subclass to level up (also to lvl80). After you do that, you will get a second subclass certificate. Repeat process with a third subclass. After you get the First subclass to lvl80, you will be given the option of making it a Dual class. Only ONE subclass can be made into the Dual class, so choose wisely. I recommend making your first subclass the one you will also turn into Dual. That way you have already done most of the work and leveled it to lvl80. After you pick the Dual class, you can level it all the way to the maximum level - the same as your Main class. At certain points, your Main and Dual class will be able to get dual class certificates. For example, the main and the dual must be level 85. At lvl85, you get the dual class certificate (yes, this is different than the subclass certificate). Pick a dual class skill that will benefit your Main and your dual. At level 90, you will get another dual class certificate. Again, both the Main and the Dual must reach the same level for you to get a dual class certificate. For example, your Main can't be lvl93 and your dual lvl88 if you want to get the lvl90 dual class certificate. In summary: 1. Get one subclass to level 80. 2. Unlock one subclass certificate. 3. Decide if that subclass will be made into a dual class. 4. Level the dual class from lvl80 to lvl85. 5. Unlock one dual class certificate when the main and the dual are both lvl85. Regarding Dual Classes: You can make almost any class your dual class. You will need to gear that dual class so many people recommend choose a dual that can share the same gear as your main: heavy armor user with heavy armor user; robe user with robe user; light armor user with light armor user. But this can be tricky if you want a dual that is very different than your main (wizard main with tank dual, for example). Always choose what you will love to play because you will be stuck leveling that dual for a long time. The only chance you have to change the dual will be during the next Red Libra event. And at this time, you can't change your Main class at all.
  20. Question about a quest.

    Hi Granny4, Have you tried going directly to the next NPC, the one in Outlaw Forest? Even if you can't click on the ? (notification of the quest), you should still be able to get the next part of the quest from the NPC. If the Blacksmith doesn't have anything for you under that quest, go to the Outlaw Forrest NPC. If nothing works, AND you are the right level for teh quest, I can only suggest sending a help ticket. I hope it works for you.
  21. Question about a quest.

    Try logging out and then logging back in again. That should get the Quest icon to reload for you. You cannot be in a party to use it to transport to Flutter. If you go to Flutter, he should give you the quest. If not, try going to Outlaw Forest and talking to Kelios. I hope it works for you. Good luck!
  22. Question about a quest.

    From L2 Wikia: Upon reaching level 46 you will get the following quest: Kekropus' Letter: A Clue Completed. Teleport to Head Blacksmith Flutter using the dialogue or the scroll to do it later. Map Talk to Head Blacksmith Flutter. Map Talk to Guard Kelios in the Outlaw Forest.
  23. Quest for lvl up

    No, you do not have to do the Ant Queen quest. In Gludio, you get the quest from Captain Bathis to go to Alligator Island (in Heine). Visit https://l2wiki.com/Kekropus'_Letter to see who you talk to next. At lvl46, you will be sent to the Outlaw Forest.
  24. holy pomander aeore eva saint transfer skills ??

    According to L2Wikia, You must be level 76 (https://l2wiki.com/Skill_Transfer). I also think the skills and pomander get deleted after transformation.
  25. We need new Leveling Guide !

    Lvl 80 - Lvl 81: Ketra Orc Outpost (mages) or Silenos Outpost (fighters) Lvl 81 triggers a quest letter to go to Dragon Valley. Lvl 81 - Lvl 85: You can do the two quests for Dragon Valley and then remain there until you are Lvl 85. Lvl 85: You'll do your Awakening quest. Lvl 85+ you will go to Aden and visit NPC Penny and Haruph (orc next to Penny) to start Adventure Guild quests. Side note: If you had a mentor while leveling up to Lvl85, you will graduate and get a Mentee Certificate. Turn that in to Mentor NPC to get 40 Diplomas. Hold those diplomas until your 30-day free R-grade Twilight gear is almost up (armor, weapon and jewelry). Then use your 40 diplomas to get one Imperial armor set, one Imperial weapon, and one set of jewelry. You should have 3 diplomas left over that you can use to buy R-grade soulshots. Good luck!
