Hello, 1st of all i am sorry if my next questions have answer in another thread if thats the case would greatly accept any link or redirect me to the correct area thank you. I use to play FFXI(3 and 1/2 years), GWs(4 months), EVE(5 months), have play a couple more of recent MMORPG but nothing that really make me want to keep playing for the last 2 years i have been interest in Lineage 2 but could never make up my mind due to forum/sites comments about the dificult of L2 due to his free PVP rules however i am still anxious about playing it, i have it installed (latest update) but i find out i cant buy the online code so i send for the retail box which should be here somewhere from around 12 to 22 days now my questions are. 1) How ready should i get on the PVP side of the game (will die a lot, or is not so bad for newbies/starting players)? 2) I am a very active player (everyday not less than 4hours), so which is a good server with a nice community where i could start that dont make me feel like food for other players and more like a posible future friendship? 3) I am very interest in have a Dark Elf and a Kamael so it the creation of characters reduce to a certain limit or i can make only 1 per acount, if so which do you recoment for a fast DD (damage dealer) or Tanking job hopefully the 1st one? 4) I have read the inflation on currency game was bad, if so, how bad or is a decent inflation a started player could handle (i do understand the farming adena/item that is common for ppl to get their stuff)? 5) I know by 1st hand the leveling is always a challenge on rpgs but i have read the it can be hard on L2, it is really hard or not that much to quit because u cant get a level in 3 weeks (window levels from 25 to 50 i mean)? 6) And last, when is a good time to start looking for a decent and warm clan/guild/faction to join or ask for invite, like 1 month from start or on a certain level frame? Like say before use to play some other online games so i kind of understand some of the dificulties one most face, use to have a character on final with 5 jobs on 75lv (dark knight/warrior/thief/black mage/ninja), 4 lv 20 on GWs (ranger/necromancer/assassin/warrior) and EVE only focus on minery/manufacturing retired after reaching the ability to create battleships, so my point is i am not a total noob on games but will be noob on L2 (feel like making a curriculum lol) so any extra advice is more than welcome with open arms also thank you very much for taking your time for reading my thread and answering my questions i know it take time so thank you very much, extra info i am 26 and have a lot of free time due to health reasons thats why i play a lot and why i like to get all the posible info about this game before i start so i can get ready and make my plan, thank you.
