Lineage 2 is not an easy game
Lineage 2 is not an easy game. Lineage 2 requires players to earn the fun. This can be considered a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your personality; would you rather earn constant little rewards or infrequent large ones?
The difficulty of the game makes for a lot of boring moments. You are pretty much required to spend many, many hours in the same room of the same dungeon killing the same type of monsters for experience, skill points, and money. This constant boredom is sometimes interrupted by frustration or anger as griefers attempt to PK (player kill) you or train a large group of monsters onto your party, and suddenly three hours of experience is taken away in a death penalty. Yet playing smart (and being lucky) will earn you pride as you buy that new expensive item or finally gain that level that took forever.
