  1. Bots are part and parcel of playing this version of classic. Stop complaining about normal classic stuff pls.
  2. Your rates for me as a VIP4 player (adena amount) are the same as those for VIP0 players - so this argument falls flat on its face. If VIP status affected adena amount - I'm sure there would be a lot less backlash since the game would be essentially Pay-to-Progress. @Hime has anyone even play tested these rates? Did you try playing this game without abusing GM commands before launching it?
  3. Level 55 mobs drop 200 adena. Impossible to solo farm anything while setting up a party or waiting for friends to login. Unless you're farming Orc Barracks lol Working as intended though. Also how's F2P an excuse for adena rates? VIP doesn't affect adena at all so there is no reason behind that argument.
  4. Why are level 50 cemetery mobs dropping 200 adena?
  5. If you join a VIP0 party with VIP4 (full group) the boost will be 4,44% That's 40%/9
  6. I've done it twice as a SWS. Did use moody melody both times and was using the quest set - only problem was I had to use UD at the start, until the mob used up its mana (also keep Warding up) You should really have no issues, especially once the mob runs out of mana. Though my drop was...non-existent 2x 3000 xp and 2x 130 SP.... I literally wasted 400+ SSD and got nothing for it
  7. Our rates have nothing to do with the real ones from 2005 or Skelth (the wiki). It is really zone-dependent example: https://l2wiki.com/classic/Mirror A Mirror in FoM is expected to drop 586-1369 adena The actual Aden drop is 135-280 It's easy to know that no one would farm for hours there in order to find out actual drop rates - it's utter madness and a loss of adena to kill x2 mobs. A good example of CT drop we had graciously compiled by @Devoid can be found here: https://forums.lineage2.com/topic/8143-experiment-ct-drops-post-11-07/?tab=comments#c
  8. My SWS has no attack skills. How am I ever, ever, ever supposed to farm LoA solo? This game is so unfair. ---- Save beast shots for pvp. Buffed up summons are insane even without shots.
  9. You are supposed to pick your skills to match what you're doing. I don't think anyone is swimming in SP and you're supposed to pick skills to fit what you're thinking of doing, you're not expected to have all skills as all.
  10. I think the fighter weapon enchant chance is about 60% per try (regardless of +3 or +15 attempt) and the mage ones are near 50%. That explain pretty much all of it - you can get lucky but it's not that insane of luck. 1-3 are safe enchants so we don't count those. 4-10 are not safe -> That means you need to get lucky 2/3rds of the enchants if you're doing warrior weapons (most of the weapons we see enchanted very high are warrior ones! Coincidence? I think not!) So let's calculate the chance of 7 enchants happening for you - that's (3/5)^7 (Three-fifths t
  11. The drop is beyond horrible at higher levels. I do understand the difference between low no-grade items and D/C grade is huge but if you're actually farming Orc Barracks you get some D-grade drops, while farming higher level mobs gives you squat all. I'm not saying "GIVE ME MAH DROPS I DEMAND THEM" but there should be some benefit to slaying higher level monsters. If it's not the higher tier drops then it should at least be more basic crafting materials or more adena to compensate for less drops or ...well something. Otherwise we're just going from spider simula
  12. Yeah filthy casuals. I mean what sort of idiot would assume that level 50 mobs should drop more than than level 20s? Seriously? Like it's so funny - they were expecting 1000-2000 adena drop per Krator and getting only 500-1000 they are so pathetic. Expecting 2005 rates phahah. Rejoice! It will be me, you and the gold sellers. So much fun.
  13. If you're thinking of soloing stuff - got for two-handed sword or blunt. Sword is preferable but beggars can't be choosers. If you group up with friends more than that - go for Cursed Maingauche + a good Shield. Even if you have a tank you'll end up off-tanking in many scenarios. And if you play with a dagger you can save some SP by skipping the sword/blunt mastery (and using the SP on M.def and Heavy Armor mastery) One-handed swords are also fine though, but a dagger would be more useful when having to PvP due to higher crit-rate and more interrupts.
  14. Ugh well basing your income on a broken quest wasn't ideal. I'd level up and farm Ol Mahums at Abandoned Camp - the drop is solid and can make you a lot of adena. Go to Orc Barracks after you graduate there. Orc Barracks -> Ant Nest -> Cruma Tower 3 -> Cruma Tower 2
  15. @LAOPEHey mate, the adena drop was never 100% chance - I believe it's around 70% per mob for it to actually drop the adena. The adena count is the problem they are working on. Some monsters with x4/x5 (5 times the HP) of normal monsters are still dropping the same adena as x1 monsters. As a whole it feels like the loot db table is a bit of a mess. You see what it usually contains is the following: Monster ID - a foreign key pointing towards a specific mob in the database Item ID - a foreign key pointing towards a specific item in the database Drop ch
  16. https://twitter.com/lineageiiops The lineage II ops twitter is pretty accurate when reporting if the servers are up or not. I'm not exactly sure what the adena scaling mention means - is it going to be addressed in this patch or is it just a note that this is a work-in-progress that might or might not be included in the patch @Hime? Because it's in `Other updates and reminders` but that's a bit misleading since `Update` might actually mean update...ya know..not sure if that made any sense.
  17. I'm still curious to find out - did anyone even playtest these rates? It feels as though a few people playing a beta would have been more than enough to flag all of this. Or some QA squad to play through the game....
  18. PS The higher level you got - the less drop you were getting. The harder it was to kill stuff with the starter weapon the more you needed to use shots. I even made a short video with my char at level 27 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXVBlLCpTMM Nothing was dropping - it was insane. But that aside - I'm just disappointed no one play tested the game. There was no beta or anything - just launch and forget about it. I would love to have seen them playtest it with no GM bullshit - get 4-5 people in there and see how far they made it - especially with
  19. All right. My first char started first week of the server though. Nothing dropped and adena was horrid. So my initial level 30 Knight was 100% gimped from the get-go - in comparison I was amazed when leveling my Mystic that mobs actually dropped a full set of jewelry, boots, even got two brandishes when farming after the adena fix. Fact of the matter is anyone who started during the first week fell behind people starting 2nd week - since we were wasting SS on level 30 mobs dropping 4-5 adena per person - it was utterly pitiful - at the end of the day I made 40k while
  20. I really can't say anything above that - still at level 37. I can actually make a profit killing green x1 mobs with shots (keeping in mind I'm using a top-D weapon), as a knight class (not the best for farming mobs). For each 40k farmed on green mobs I have a restock cost of about 20k so things pay off but the adena at level 35 mobs isn't any better than that of the 30s drop or the 20s (hell Orc Barracks had better drops and exp than Ant Nest). That being said, me actually having to make 2 chars to farm Spider quest and Kesha bear orc quest for two weeks, instead o
  21. I've played this game quite a bit and I have no memory of having to farm Dark Elf spider quest 50 times Light Elf spider quest 50 times Orc Kasha Bear spider quest 35 times None of the lineage 2 versions I've played required this bs. Farming a bunch of mobs with your main is one thing. Having to create a mage you're not even invested in to farm a level 19 quest because it's more profitable than anything after Orc Barracks is quite insane.
  22. 12 hours of gaming, 8 hours of work leave 4 whole hours for him to socially interact with his super-hot model gf. You know nothing.
