Infinite Odyssey is shaping up to be one of the most game-changing expansions for Lineage II, as the venerable NCSoft MMO celebrates its 11th anniversary by prepping for the expansion's launch on April 22. As you can see from the new trailer video, the expansion pours the drama on thick, but it's the gameplay changes that will really get players' blood pumping.

The biggest change is probably the removal of the level cap of 100, "taking PvP to a whole new dimension," according to the press release. The cynical among us would say it'll take PvP in a direction that favors those with infinite time over those with skill, but that's just crazy talk...

With new progression comes new skills, some of which were named by the community in a contest, two new zones, and a new raid boss, Kelbin, who's equipped "with a sword forged from the Seal of Calamity and powerful dark iron wings." (The Seal of Calamity can be seen doing two shows daily at AquaWorld, along with the Whale of Discontent.)

This is BAD! The entire community cried over the "reborn" update that made things unbalanced. The wanted CLASSIC old server no crap updates (designed for cash grab). The company ignored them so long over theyears that private servers are just the known fix for Lineage 1 and 2 gamers...finally getting hit in the pocket, the company made "SUBSCRIPTION classic servers"...face palm. Oh, and now this???? This is a slap in the face. Perfect World, when first came out, had "no end game /cap" you were sort of in a level 80 limbo where 90 was god like. No one knew the end cap since exp rates so high. One day a farmer hit 100, and his exp bar stopped, so they knew the cap was around 100. This creted a sphere of eite that control all, and makes new players not really have end game goals but mid to near end. It is super unabalcned and "un western" as it relies on grind to make up for lack of content. PW got it right, and now you can get to 100 in decent progression rates like the rest of the world. They also have been giving content updates regularly...Lineage is so going the opposite and I can not help but wonder if this is yet ANOTHER "middle finger to the west, because we have tons of cash paying Koreans that like this crap".
Shame if your in the west swipping your credit card or signing up for these games.
