Lineage II’s casual friendly version includes an action-packed solo dungeon

Hopefully you didn’t miss the word that Lineage II is about to launch a brand-new version of the game that’s far more casual-friendly than anything the MMO has had in the past. And it’s not just a decrease in difficulty that’s happening with Lineage II Aden; this version includes two more classes, a new pet system, and a special solo instance called the Transcendent Dungeon.

In fact, it’s this dungeon that’s being highlighted in a recent dev blog: “The Transcendent Dungeon is explicitly designed for solo play and delivers action-packed, horde-style hunting in six unique zones for any soul brave enough for the challenge. It’s an ideal opportunity to gain a high amount of XP in a short amount of time, with plenty of rewards to earn.”

Players are limited to running this dungeon once a day, although you can pay for a pass to get a second run if you so desire. Inside the instance, characters will get a special AOE skill to help with fights. Go nuts, too, because there’s no death penalty that applies in this realm!

At first I was confused as to why they would make a casual L2, but then I remembered how 5x exp gain is considered “low rates” for private servers.
I’ll keep an eye out on this, but I expect some nasty “pay or be miserable” features so I’m not getting my hopes up

You mean to say “creating problem and selling solution” and yes, we will definitely see those. After all, it is an f2p game. However, no matter how bad the cash shop will be, I don’t think it will be able to topple the severe anger that I felt when I first played L2. Disgusting grinding based leveling system, “pvp” for shits and giggles, bloated character/class system which was there only for “LOOK! WE HAVE SO MANY ABILITIES AND STUFF! WE ARE SO DEEP!”! This should have been remedied long ago.

yeah, either in terms of QoL or in terms of progression. L2 classic was *very* p2w even at launch if my memory serves me, but I don’t need to “win” to have fun, so time will tell how it’ll affect me

So they are finally removing those “hardcore” aspects of the game? Good gods! This should have been done at the same time they were turning the game f2p! If they did this back then, they would have had a very stable player retention.

I just recently wanted to try this game out because it used to be such a huge force in the MMO sphere, and there are very few games I haven’t tried that are of the same caliber. Definitely going to be giving this a whirl.

Also think quite a few older MMOs could stand to do similar spin-offs, but that’s just me.

Hmm. Never gave Lineage II a thought. Maybe it’s time to give it a look.

You’re in luck! The game is running unreal 2.5 right this moment
(If you’re talking about unreal 4 then that hasn’t even been officially announced. All we have is a job listing, a single youtube video and a mention in one of their financial reports)

If you search for “lineage 2 remastered” one of the top results will be a private server trying to look official. that should tell you quite a bit about how far out this is.
