Congrats on your RNG luck - I have 3 VIP accounts and a free to play opening boxes every day without any luck of the sort lol (not complaining, I've never had luck literally in any L2 event ever where I got the good prizes so it doesn't bother me much anymore).

 

In regards to Spellbooks, they were hard to get, but like 1-5% chance to drop back in the day. They were also spread out a bit more. My main is a spoiler, with my 2 buffers trailing behind me. The only reason I could complete the Orc Clas change quest in Ivorry Crater was because one of the farmers was nice enough to chill and let me get last hit, most things were nuked before my fat little dwarf can move two feet towards them.

An item to give a skill should not have same drop rates as full gear drops... that was never the case in old L2 days, and I get classic isnt the same as back then... but come on.

What I did is doing nothing else except for sitting 4 hours per day for the gifts for all my chars. I am a bit tired to compete with RU farmers now. When I gathered 10 gifts on each char, I opened them at once.

In old days, when my SE needed spellbooks, when my clan helped me to get them in the enchanted valley. We fought around a week.

Compared to most games out there, L2 is anything but casual.

Also, at some point around lv 55 it gets very grindy, which is again anything but casual.

This is extremelly casual. I barely spent any time farming and reaching 54 with full C gear, juwels and like 6kk to spear due to the afk events and Exp quests. This is a joke tbh.

It's not about what you did with the help of the L2store, that's child's play.Try w/o and come tell us again.

Adena is rather easy to make, 6kk is the profit of 5 fishing toons over a few weeks span, don't make yourself look like newbie plx :(

You don't even play the game so keep quiet. And I refuse to purchase NCcoins for your information.

This is l2 casual thou, nothing about it is hardcore... It's just watered out and chocked in on points they want you  to get stuck on.

Books where hard to get, but not this hard. This is making server progress unbalances and favors mage groups in the higher tiers.

 

THIS IS CASUAL L2, XP Scrolls, Daily events that gives Top Cg and 1.1m SP + Enchants.  Grinding not needed, fighting over spots not needed.

All you need to do is the dailys and enough accounts and you solid.

That's casual l2.

The upper end XP curve is more than than old L2 and Euro classic. Adena is also much cut down. Yes they give you free exp and welfare boxes out of the dungeon. But beyond those is a pit of despair as your SP deficit is enormous and adena is terrible outside of the Botter havens they buffed last hotfix. I find it odd they buffed frequently exploited zones but left the small party areas untouched.

Wrong yet again, I do play the game, but I'm wondering, do you even play it, coz it really seems you're taking our random things.

care to explain what you mean by "extremelly casual"?? 
How many hours per day you refering as ""barely spent any time farming" ??

Or you are some kind of guru and most ppl are retarded, or you dont spend time playing but your bot does, or your perception of time is a little mess up.... if you think your 5++ hours a day is casual, well you need to check again how many hours a day has.. xD

To topic, well this is intended. All l2 zones has this mess up book drop rate. Even on innovas drop fest is like this.

Just wait till an l2 overprice coin event kick in with random boxes giving crap + books  to see the market flood with them and buy it. Is amazing how fragile the memories of the community is. We have seen this on live for years... so why bother. 
This for sure will be on schedule....

3-5 hours a day max. I did my dailies 4x that gives a ton of exp and then off to SoS, FoM or Ivory to farm some books. That's about it really. Oh and a casual Cruma 2 party. : )

Well thats not casual but for sure very profitable and well planned. 

Casual gameplay is around an hour or two a day, and with some days skipped....  

For you to dimmention, that time spend on a gym will make you a bodybuilder for sure xD..is almost half a work day...
Is almost all the free time an adult has on the day, sleeping properly ofc... xD 


But this topic is pointless. Spellbook drop rate is like that on classic. Nothing to do about it..

Well, for L2 it's kinda casual, but I agree, it is more than normal and probably more than I should be playing since I end up going to bed too late every day! :D

45-46 lvls 2-3 accounts will net you some books or things you might need.

True, if you play 3-5 hours a day you have enough time to do daily missions to fund the costs of your dungeon and then just hope for RNG.

The only issue with servers is the drop \ spoil rates. Otherwise classic should not be that hard, especially in the later patches.

yea, drop rate / spoils are screw up. There are some mobs that do gives what are saying others official data base. But most mobs do not ..
I honestly think this has 0 priority, the game, and is just a planned milking phase. First throw the hook, a free event of boxes that do reward ppl. All servers see how the event do reward..... Then generate the means to lvl on some fast pace but that gives little adena, some more experience and hard core gamers ( and lucky) will have dwarfs and get resourses with multiple accounts, but most will struggle to pay lvling as we has see on the topics. 
The "need" is there and the proof of rewarding events is also there. Then you have the scenario  to let the casino l2store beggins. Boxes with the usuall hope for having resourses starts.....
Lets see what bring us the l2store on this christmass xD

like they say.... working as intended jaja

Books are supposed to be hard at this point. It might take up to a month farm to get given book or just buy it.

Also if having work and wife etc, L2 is not the game for you, choose something more casual.

have you suffered a recent blow to the head?

In other versions these books filled the bag. It seems GMs are far behind in solving this kind of issue in a timely manner.
Every day I see fewer people logging in. Especially those of flesh and blood.

Next maintenance teleport will pay again and another group will abandon the game.

This issue of the skills book is also a bottleneck that deserves special attention.
