PlayL2R Leveling Guide: 1-120 (Up To Dion Territory)
May 21, 2018

Welcome to the PlayL2R Leveling Guide Series: Level 1-120 Edition!

So you’re new to Lineage 2: Revolution and the first thing that comes to mind is, “What should I do? I want to progress the right way and avoid noob mistakes. I want to reach the top with maximum efficiency.” Calm down, Adventurer. You’ve come to the right place. PlayL2R will guide you on your journey to become the strongest mercenary of Aden. After you’ve chosen your desired character class, as you land and start your adventures in East Talking Island, we will provide you with a list of things you should and shouldn’t do.

To maximize the speed of your character progression during this period, we advise not to focus so much on PvP; instead, focus on PvE (Field Area and Elite Dungeon), Resource gathering and Experience boosting. PvP will come after you’ve reached your true potential in the mid- to end stages of the game. You can always spare some time in the Arena and Player Killing (PK) in the Fields and Dungeons to ease the boredom of level/CP grinding.

Act 1:

First things first, levels 1-50 should be an easy step, and all you have to do is follow the main quest path, which is in full auto function. Leveling up continuously is not a problem and you won’t experience a delay or bottleneck between levels.

  1. Equip the free equipment given to you from the early quest rewards. Use and upgrade your Elite type armors.
    • Warrior – Blue Wolf
    • Rogue – Tracker
    • Mystic – Dynasty
  2. Invest in your Elite Weapon (see Forge Guide). Level up your Weapon to max. Use spare item drops and varnishes. Don’t focus too much on your armors, as they are only temporary and will be replaced as you reach higher levels.
  3. Upgrade your weapon as soon as you finish Episode 1-10, or use Combine to get a higher grade Elite Weapon.
  4. Level up your skills and follow the prioritization flow (check out our Class Guides).
  5. After reaching level 10, join an active clan that hosts Fireplace frequently (faster Exp boost).
    • Donate to your clan and earn clan coins. Use them to buy Exp. Boxes
  6. Enter and Auto-Clear the Tower of Insolence daily to collect Rune Fragments. Upgrade your Runes.
    Note: Runes are one way to permanently increase your Combat Power.
  7. Enhance your Elite Weapon up to +13~14 without using any Maphr’s Protection. You may enhance your armors up to +5 to mitigate damage from the enemy.
  8. Collect daily rewards from the Challenge and Event tabs under the User Interface (UI) menu.
  9. Finish daily tasks inside the Dungeon. Each area gives out specific rewards upon completion:
    • Daily Dungeon – for upgrade and enhance materials
    • Tower of Insolence – for Rune fragments, Adena and Experience
    • Elite Dungeon – use Hot Time (30 mins allotted daily) to gain massive amounts of Exp and Clan resources)
    • Extraction Pit – Elixir for permanent Combat Power increase, massive amounts of Exp (use Einhasad’s blessing)
    • Temple Guardian – for additional Equipment supplies
    • Adena Vault – for massive amounts of Adena
    • Trials of Experience – for massive amounts of Exp
    • Summoning Circle – for Mount/Pet upgrade and enhancement

Act 2:

From levels 50-75, you will need to do certain tasks to level up continuously. You will have more Area access and need to dedicate a few hours of attention to these tasks. It won’t be hard if you follow the guidelines below:

  1. Upon reaching level 50, you will be able to acquire a Mount/Pet. Equip high level equipment acquired from Summoning Circle. Give priority to Upgrade/Enhance your Pet’s Armor and Visor (they give bonus Attack damage)
  2. Monsters ±4 of your current level is the ideal range to get a good amount of exp and loot ratio.
  3. Farming the field should come with Einhasad’s blessing to maximize exp gain. Efficiently use it after completing the Extraction Pit.
  4. Upon reaching level 75, you will be able to acquire a Cloak. Equip Adventurer’s Cloak and upgrade when you have the resources to maximize bonus exp. per unit kill (See cloak guide for more details).
  5. Likewise, gear with exp. increase rate substats are also helpful (~5.5% for weapon, ~1.8% for armors and accessories, up to +22% bonus exp. in total)
  6. One of the main sources of Experience and Adena are subquest scrolls.
  7. Start collecting sub-quest scrolls from killing Field monsters close to your level. Bind C and B grade scrolls and only perform A grade scrolls. Take note that sub-quests give massive amounts of Adena and Exp. You can reset sub-quest count 3x using red diamonds which makes you perform 20 sub-quests per day:
    1. Level 50 A-Grade scroll – 45k Exp, 12.5k Adena
    2. Level 60 A-Grade scroll – 50k Exp, 14k Adena
    3. Level 75 A-Grade scroll – 55k Exp, 17.8k Adena
  8. Make effective use of your Hot Time in Elite Dungeon. Solo farm if you can to hoard the kill experience for yourself (fighting in a party distributes the experience to the group). This is where your Elite weapon will be extremely useful as you gain bonus damage against Elite monsters, allowing you to flash farm.
  9. Recommended Accessory set: Nassen, Black Ore, Elven (choose one)

Act 3:

Levels 75-120 require you to take it up a notch compared to the previous levels. Just continue doing the usual tasks in Act 1 and 2 and add the following tasks to increase efficiency:

  1. Make sure you finish all quests (Main, Sub, Weekly)
  2. Complete Daily Dungeons and collect Recess Exp Rewards.
  3. Collecting sub-quest scrolls from killing Field monsters close to your level. Bind C and B grade scrolls and only perform A grade scrolls. You can reset sub-quest count three times using red diamonds, which will help you perform 20 sub-quests per day:
    1. Level 75 A-Grade scroll – 55k Exp, 17.8k Adena
    2. Level 90 A-Grade scroll – 60k Exp, 19.4k Adena
    3. Level 105 A-Grade scroll – 80k Exp, 21.9k Adena
    4. Level 120 A-Grade scroll – 100k Exp, 23k Adena
  4. By this time, your Elite Weapon should be fully upgraded to SR-Grade and at least enhancement level +15. Attribute level should also be leveled up.
  5. Farm the Elite Dungeon and spend an extra 200 red diamonds for 30 mins of additional Hot Time.
  6. If you are in a clan, Elite monsters should be no less than 5 levels lower than your current level for you to still get sufficient amount of Proofs of Blood (PoB) and Red Starstones (RSS) from Evil of Blood (EoB) monsters.
  7. The Blood Ranger’s Cloak should be equipped to get scraps of blood to help you with the daily clan donations. Unfortunately, the Adventurer’s Cloak does not work in Elite Dungeons.
  8. By this time, you should have collected Summoning Stones from Talking Island, Gludio, and Dion territories. Prioritize cores that give bonuses in P.Atk/M.Atk and other offensive stats (Penetration, Crit Rate, Accuracy).

Weapon Prioritization/Recommendation:

  1. Elite Weapon – Most of the time you will be farming tons of experience from the Elite Dungeon. During Hot Time, which we recommend farming at least 1 hour per day, bonus experience is increased to 8x and item drop rate to 4x.
  2. Blue Weapon – PvP set with high base stats. A good option if you plan to just focus on building 1 set (for PvP and PvE)
  3. Red Weapon – The Red Weapon is a good investment because of its use in fighting Magical creatures. Relevant in farming the Temporal Rift and Field/Elite Dungeon specifically in Cruma Swamp (Field) and Cruma Towers 2 & 3 (Elite Dungeon).

  1. Main Quest
  2. Trials of Experience
  3. Daily Quests
  4. Weekly Quests
