    A lot of wisdom on how to start playing current Lineage 2 Classic is spread on our forum, so let's gather everything in 1 place.

    [​IMG]

    Imagine, your friend is starting after a long period of inactivity, or remembers some old L2 Chronicles, what would you recommend them to do/to know first of all?
    After the contest is over, we will choose the best lifehacks and compose a post that can be shared with any new player.

    Applications are accepted from July 17 till July 30, 2018.

    Format Requirements. Contents:
    • The contest entry should consist of a detailed description about 1 useful thing for any new player on Skelth.
    • Your guide can cover:
      • A nice-to-make quest.
      • A way to get extra adena or equipment.
      • Advice on equipment options or class choice.
      • ...Other important points you think need to be covered for any new player.
    • Your guide can contain more information than named above.
    • You guide should be no longer than 2 000 characters long (including spaces and punctuation)
    • The guide should be written for this contest and never used anywhere before.
    • Your guide should be accompanied by 1 header picture, it can be a screenshot illustrating the advice or a screenshot of your character. No text on the screenshot is allowed. Min size 1024*768. You can add other pictures if needed, just remember it's a text guide contest, so the text on the picture doesn't count towards overall number of characters or rewards.
    • Use tooltips from L2Wiki to name items/locations/skills, for example, https://l2wiki.com/classic/Party_Return_-_Elven_Elder
    • Please don't use more than 3 colors in your text.
    • Please don't use more than 3 fonts in your text.
    • To make the reading easier, please format your headers and subheaders. You can use the forum's style or simple bold/italic/underlined.
    Format requirements. Images:
    • Please use a good image hosting like Imgur to keep your images
    Step 1. Upload:

    • You can submit several entries, but only 1 entry per participant can win.
    • Your guides for the contest should be posted in the designated subforum: https://eu.4gameforum.com/forums/1769/ This subforum has a 30-day limit for editing your texts.

    :Laugh: So damn true.
    With my skill to make walls of text I'm not even trying here :p.

    Jokes aside, Shadow, maybe it's possible to cut your guide into pieces and publish as a section with sub-publications? Then chose the best one for the contest.
    I can't w8 to see your guide being honest :).

    Forget the "ps" - based on true story!

    It suppose to be small guide, tips and tricks, cool details, stuff that veterans known well but are not written anywhere else.

    Even if I wanted to make a small guide to help newbies pick the right dyes or anything related to daggers, I wouldn't be able to make nothing decent . So i will post a dagger guide anyway.

    not a single good guide. each of them feel forced just to win the prices. So far the 90% copy pasted one is best.

    Edit: summoner guide is by far the best one. The dyes one is good aswell.

    The summoner one is from the previous contest, and was moved to the sandbox so I could edit it back in times.

    I'll move it to the regular guide section so there is no confusion :)

    i guess mighty Zodac can teach us how to do it with his own guide ( not forced to win and not copy pasted ).

    I edited that point a bit: yes, you can add other pictures, but the header picture should be clean. And the text on other pictures doesn't count towards overall character limit or reward decision.

    You can add other people, but only 1 will get the reward.
