Lineage 2 - Popular Online Game Meets Sci-fi

By: Temp

Lineage 2 is a highly rewarding massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), introduced by NCSoft Korea. Since its launching on October 1, 2003, Lineage 2 continues to enthrall the players from all over the world, with its strong graphic drive coupled with detailed as well as vast environment. Lineage 2 is the sequel to the Lineage - the reigning subscription winner in the MMORPG world. Further, the game is credited to be one of the only few games that avoid such problems as lack of variety and disequilibrium primarily when a race becomes dominant in relation to another. However for playing the game, there are certain minimum system requirements such as Pentium 3 800MHz or better, RAM with a capacity higher than 256M, GeForce2 or better 3D Graphics card, 56K Internet Connection, and HDD space of 8GB.

Lineage 2 is designed in such a way that it should be played from the point of view of a third person. Once the game is started, you are taken to the amazing world of Adena where Player versus Player combat is constant. You are given option to choose from any of the five fantasy races, such as, the dark elves, humans, dwarves, elves, and orcs, each with its own class trees, which in turn enables players to alter their character appearance. The selection of race not only tests the players' ability but also the way they will later develop or advance in the game. All of the races are great for combat, but dwarves differ significantly from the others and they are the only race possessing crafting skills. Additionally, players can decide between two starting classes; fighter or a spell caster. Fighters can use weapons, and the other, as the name indicates, use spells.

Movements involved in the game are accomplished by either pointing or clicking. But, in order to play the game, you must have a clear idea on RPG. One of the worth mentioning features of Lineage 2 is the use of Soulshots and Spiritshots, which play the role of a weapon or a spell for a single bow. Another unique feature involved in this game is grinding level. Above all, the game's GUI is amazingly clean and utilizes screen space very proficiently. Lineage 2 is also renowned for its character models, particularly female characters which take after beauty pageant. Other relevant features of the game are class advancement and specialization; large variety of in-game events for players to cooperate in; advanced graphic engine; no zoning and hence one big world; castle sieges; political as well as economic systems; simple interface as well as easy to learn game structure; and clan housing and castles.

However, in order to attain success, Lineage 2 involves the application of certain weapons such as arrows, healing potions, and soulshots, which can be acquired through its purchase via Lineage 2 Adena. Lineage 2 Adena is the currency considered invaluable in Lineage 2. But farming cheap L2 Adena is not an easy task. It mostly comes from such sources as quests, monsters, and other players. Selling items to players is regarded as one of the best ways to gather plenty of Lineage 2 Adena, since many of the weapons applied in the game may be of high price in the private stores. Popular ways to buy Lineage 2 Adena also include farming weapons from quests or monsters and selling it to vendors. Another great way to earn Lineage Adena 2 is through clans by taxing the surrounding lands if they own a castle in the area. But, it is recommended not to buy Lineage 2 Adena from NPC merchants.

There is a limit to what words could convey. So, in order to get the true feel of Lineage 2 Adena, try competing in one of the races and don the various character colors. Real time gaming helps you to learn and understand the game better.
