I’m not much of an MMO player, but Lineage is one series that I’ve heard of and played for about a month. I don’t have the attention span for these sorts of games, but if you do, NCSoft, the South Korean-based developer of Lineage 2, just announced a new patch called “Goddess of Destruction” to celebrate the 7th anniversary of the franchise. The story line involves all of the races banding together to stop Shilen, the Goddess of Destruction, as well as the hordes of followers that come with any world-conquering god.
The following will affect gameplay changes in this latest update:
- Combat: Following the 4th Class transfer, an entirely new set of skills becomes available that offer updated graphics and animations that result in a stylish and strategic combat experience.
- Content: With more than 30 new hunting grounds, 60 new raid bosses and more than 400 new weapons and armor pieces, Lineage 2: Goddess of Destruction offers the largest content update ever. Players have 14 new levels to explore from 85-99, with new found powers to use on their way to the top.
- Classes: The Goddess of Destruction has vastly changed the world, requiring new heroes to awaken at level 85. High-level characters will evolve into one of eight new classes, featuring exciting new skills and abilities to use as they face Shilen and her minions.
- Convenience: This massive update revamps seven years worth of content meaning that Lineage 2 players will enjoy a greatly improved leveling curve, new starting zone for all players, better item drop rates, and a myriad of other changes to improve the overall fun and convenience of the game. We are also excited to exclusively announce the addition of instance based clan housing, which will offer 200 instances that are renewed on a monthly basis.
For more information about the update, you can take a look at the Lineage 2 official website.
