Question to staff @Hime @Juji

Are there going to be NCWest specific changes to the server ie: not the same roll out that Skelth had for Classic 1.5? and if so, when can we expect a full breakdown of patch notes? Also if it is true that you removed the death penalty causing you to drop items when you die to mobs, fix this, don't make this a carebear server. Classic is hardcore, keep it that way.

Notice to Players

After reading the forums I'm starting to notice half the people posting have never played classic, and know very little about it. They're also bringing a lot of their experiences with the current GoD iterations of Lineage 2 to their questioning, and they shouldn't.

Lineage 2 Classic, and Lineage 2 Goddess of Destruction should for all intensive purposes be considered 2 completely different games. The current L2Store items announced will have a much lower effect on gameplay than you guys are thinking about. Classic is a very slow paced game EXP boosts and a small 10% PvE bonus damage will have very little effect on the grand scheme of things, you're still going to be taking many, many months for average and experienced players to hit endgame. The few players that will CP and no-life/driver ie the top 1% will hit max level and endgame faster than you whether the L2Store has EXP boosts or not, because that's how they play.  Classic does not have any of the game breaking items you're afraid that the L2Store will eventually add, I wouldn't worry about this. EXP items are going to benefit casual players more than anyone else. The thousands of players that come to the server because its free to play and cannot afford to pay or buy ncoin are the same players that will be playing 8-10 hour days. Those casual players who can afford NCoin will take advantage of the EXP boosts to try and keep up when they cant play 8-10 hours a day because they have jobs and families. Be thankful its F2P and not subscription. It will allow you to play if you're having an off month and cant pay a sub, it also like previously stated brings thousands of players who otherwise wouldn't be able to play, and those players will contribute to keeping an active economy and field pvp. 

If this is going to be your first time playing Classic, and once again classic is its own thing, its not C1, C2 or Interlude or any of those, its brand new and a hybrid of experiences from past chronicles. But if this is your first time playing, mentally prepare. It's a grind, and one like you may have never experienced unless you have played back in the days of Prelude/C1. Expect to be 35+ before you finally get a good D weapon unless you get lucky on a drop, expect to 40+ in a mix of NG/D-grade after a month of more of playing. This is the reality of a fresh classic server.

Ppl who never played classic, should try other f2p classic servers even private ones, just to see.

Becoz its hardcore, and lots of ppl will give up.

Also need to think very carefully what class u play, and dont just start main prophet (you will quit before lvl40 with a solo main prophet)

Completely different from GoD.

11 days to launch, better prapare for it.

Really? Look at any other F2P classic (Korea, Taiwan, Japan).

And you probably never had a character 78+ on classic, if you think that you dont need any equipment items from the shop to exp comfortably.

Its all good, until you hit the wall of mobs, that can be killed only by full boosted meele party ... veeeery slowly.

(and koreans will never make any balance changes to please audience that does not want pay2win system, - tested on russian servers. ZERO patches in 4 years)

I think main prophet one of good classes to pick. Since everyone box it, noone know how usefull class is it when it's alive. It aint full of "buffing". Just ppl put tags on classes and most of ppl pick their classes according to these tags to get in some cp/clan and they dont like the class or playing style eventually they quit. I saw it on every chronicle, nothing special to classic.
