So. A few days back, I’ve started playing Lineage2 Revolution (the mobile game one).
Old friends play it, and I thought that I haven’t played any MMORPG in years, so why not?
I started downloading it from the play store. It’s a bit huge and it requires at least 1GB RAM and 1.2GHz Quad Core CPU. Hopefully, my phone can stand it. 😀
My character name is Eglanor. He’s a dark elf. I’m went with the Rouge in a bow or better known as Phantom Ranger, for his class.
Originally, I wanted to name him Eglandir, because he’s an dark elf and dark elves needs dark elven names. But, unfortunately, Eglandir is already taken so I have to choose another. I’m kind of regretting choosing this name, because for some reason, I can’t remember it right. XD
Now for my first impression of Lineage2 Revolution, that I wrote when I first started weeks ago…
The first thing I noticed is the graphics. I went all, “Woah! So these can be achievable in mobile apps now, huh?” But thinking again and considering that the specs of the mobile phones nowadays is way better than my actual desktop PC, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. So in the end, it all comes down in how stable the Internet connection is.
As of this writing, I have yet to try playing this game using a mobile Internet data connection. But I’m assuming that you could at least play it decently in a stable 4G/LTE connection.
Moving on to the gameplay, I love how it stuck to the usual MMORPG type of gameplay. It’s easier to navigate around because there’s an auto quest on which I really love because I suck at locations and I have terrible sense of directions, in-game and IRL.
There are random movies in between quests, which I also love because it gives you the feel of actually being there in the game, or at least for me. And I also find the quests storyline pretty entertaining. However, I find those dialogs that appear suddenly in the top right corner while your fighting monsters, annoying. I mean, I’m fighting here, so I wouldn’t be able to read the dialogs properly.
When you’re a noob like I was (well, I am still), you’ll get confused with so much currency that appears in this game. There’s the normal gold called Adena, a red gem, blue gem, diamonds, topaz and Mileage. but you will get used to them eventually since other than the Adena and the red gem, the others are related to cash items or items you buy using real money.
Like the typical MMORPGs, there are also dungeons where you could fight stronger mobs to acquire more equipment, Adena, EXP and Summoning Stones (for the mounts). There’s also an arena where you can fight with other players. I also saw Fortress Siege and Castle Sieges, but I can’t access them yet.
There’s a clan (or guild), and complete with clan hall and clan dungeon too. The Clan Hall, I especially like, because it’s huge and you get to cook meals for additional temporary boosts and stats. AND there’s an actual maid in there, though she doesn’t do much.
Other things I noticed that are not in other games I’ve played that I really like are the Login Reward, Monthly Login Rewards and Recess Reward. You can get certain items just for simply login in and playing everyday. And when you’re not playing and needed rest, you get items as well. Oh, and you can also add friends and earn “Friendship Points” that you can use to buy items such as potions and equipment. However, friends are only limited to 30 as of now.
My disappointment came when I noticed that there is no trade in-game. There’s a Trading Post where you can vend your stuff, but you can’t trade with other players. One advantage to this, though, is that you’ll have to earn everything on your own and that you will never get scammed by another player through in-game trading.
Oh, and watch out for those annoying boastful players who loves to PK random people. There are a lot of them inside dungeons so when you’re in there, better keep your cool.
So far, I’m working on getting to level 100 or higher to finally kick some ass. 😀
