As a former Lineage 2 player, let me just say that game doesnt work at all like WoW, 90% of the player base is not max level, nor will they ever be. With 4% exp loss on death in a game about pvp, it takes 1 hour to grind 1%, so the game is designed to have players grinding away mindlessly for hours on end. Mob grinding...because there are no quests, not like we have in Wow, with tangible rewards. Also, cash is insanely valuable and hard to get, all items are player crafted and materials are rare and thousands-tens of thousands are required to create each piece. Enchanting items can result in them breaking. To win in pvp or even to grind effectively you need to use consumables worth more then the money and materials that drop while grinding. This results in a player mentality that the only way to succeed is to cheat, leaving a substantial chunk of the player base either botting, or buying some of the most expensive ingame currency online in any game I have seen. At any given time farmers may outnumber players, and there are no instances, so they are killing YOUR mobs.In this guys favor, he is right, the game isn't fair, and it is designed to be addictive, on the other hand, to play devils advocate, its a damned misery grind that never ends, with no storyline, bs quests, and terrible pvp. I don't understand why anyone is playing it anymore.
