    Hello everyone, I just started playing l2 again after not playing for many years, last I played was probably Interlude. Anyways, I noticed few things and have a few questions.
    1. What happened to 1-85 gameplay? Why even ketra outpost have absolutely no drops except some poor adena drops?
    2. Are dwarfs broken/useless now? After spoiling for 60 lvl's (around 4 hrs) I ended up with like 14 thread.
    3. If the game bellow 85 does not exist, what new lvls 85-100 brings into the game?
    4. Are there any options to obtain decent gear (basically so you would not get one shoted by other players) without putting in real money?
    I know these questions might look ******ed/funny, but I am honestly confused about the situation now. And if someone understands dwarf role now (especially spoilers) could you please leave more detailed explanation? Thank you very much.

    Dwarf role is useless nowdays.
    Yes there is options to get decent gear w/o donating, but you are not going to make adena if you focus on spoil.
    1-85 its like a tutorial( how to move,how to do quest,how to teleport)85-99 its like another tutorial about how istances/new content work.
    Real game starts at 101 imo, when u got already decent lvl and decent gear.
    Dont try to get endgame gear in few months, its close to impossible, there is to many items to get and endgame ones are insanely expensive.
    Mid gear to figth in mid clans can be obtained in 2-3 month effort.
    This is my pov, hope it helped to you.

    Thank you for reply! Actually it helped a lot. We decided to try to lvl to 85 and if we will feel like it is not for us.

    1-85 is too short to feel the game, make atleast 95 or even 99 (doesnt take long) and then decide, 1-85 some ppl make in <2h and some grind for 2full days, and on this update 1-85 is more grind based than before, quests give more but mobs dont give xp at all and need to kill way more mobs for those quests (before 48-71 was 20-30min in forsaken plains, and now if make as game designed can take 2h+ because u cant stay at 1 place to xp u need to move constantly cause mobs doesnt give xp)

    Classic is terribad game for L2 lovers.
    Never ever under any circumstances go there.
    L2 is evolving game,not for players who cant accept changes.
    Peace.

    L2 Classic is evolving too, it won't go the exact same way as old chronicles. So for an old player who came back after few years, L2 Classic could be a good option now.

    All depends what r u looking for?
    Either stuck in old chronicle were "stun" can rob u from all items,or keep learning new stuff and experience new content,just like life is.

    Yeah looking at it from your PoV you can either stay on a server where all you get for your character is matter of your effort or where the l2store is providing a lot of the items in server

    good option to grind forever and ever and maybe longer with no chance to catch up in gear/levels with those who started on server start? its bad for "old players who came back", here in core we have low/mid/higher mid and end game, so even non-donator can find himself what to do with who to play, besides we have buffer till 94 so even if he plays solo he can run for a while buffed
    and in clasic if dont have 2 subscriptions to box yourself se/wc u are doomed, and if u play 2 chars that means double the "fun" to exp

    and how about meeting real buffer? it's a social game, come on.
    You can also join some clans or parties that already have a buffer. It's Classic after all.

    you are kinda right about l2 is evolving and people should evolve to, i miss old days lineage 2 but in some way i like new one to, i think changes are inevitable, but some of these changes could be better i guess, most important is that lineage 2 after so many years still have huge fanbase

    Why would a 3-4 hour grind should give you any satisfactory experience?

    The devs said they wanted a different development path for Classic, so we can't be sure if we'll get GoD "in the end" ...
