European players of Lineage 2 and Lineage 2 Essence got some meaty updates today, as announced by publisher 4game. in L2, there’s a new zone, Spirit Forest, a temporary hunting zone for players level 110 and up. Players will also see raid boss levels rise to 120, or 125 for epic bosses. That’s the bad news. The good news is that players can now augment their armor for stat bonuses and sigils will provide increased defense when equipped, “since they are now useful for classes other than mages.” What, and mages didn’t need defense?
For solo-friendly L2E, four classes — Spectral Dancers, Sword Muses, Titans, and Khavataries — have been reworked, and the “long-awaited PvP ranking” has also been implemented. There are two new raid zones and three new locations for solo players, as well as a new dimensional hunting zone, and a new clan war system.
