PlayL2R Leveling Guide: 181-260 (Oren Territory)
May 2, 2018

Welcome to the PlayL2R Leveling Guide Series: Level 181-260 Edition!

“Speed is King”. Playing Lineage 2: Revolution is like skating over thin ice; your safety relies on your speed. With a game that has tough competition (especially amongst the in-game affluent and addicts spending so much time in-game), you have to be agile and adapt to remain relevant. In this guide, we will give you directions on where to farm so you can reach the end-game as soon as possible. Use these tips to your advantage before someone else does.

Being resourceful is key and one of your main opportunities over large competitors. The chart below shows the specific areas where you need to farm to make the most out of your play-time. It includes all the needed information that will guide you throughout your progress.

Since the big update (max level increase to 260) is fast approaching, first we will review and tackle how to quickly gain levels in the map of Oren. The information and tips below are a collective effort from our informant contributors in KR and SEA servers. (You’re welcome.)

Most of the time, you will be bouncing in these two areas while leveling:

  1. Field
    • Monsters ±4 of your current level is the ideal range to get a good amount of exp and loot ratio.
    • Farming the field should come with Einhasad’s blessing to maximize exp gain. Efficiently use it after completing the extraction dungeon.
    • Adventurer’s Cloak should be equipped while farming in the Field (+30% bonus exp. at max. See cloak guide for more details).
    • 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)
    • One of the main sources of Experience and Adena are subquest scrolls.
    • There are magical creatures in the fields of Oren (see table below). Use red weapon to gain the killing advantage.
  2. Elite Dungeon
    • Monsters should be at least 7 levels lower than your current level to still be able to get sufficient amount of Proofs of Blood (PoB) and Red Starstones (RSS) from Evil of Blood (EoB) monsters.
    • Blood Ranger’s cloak should be equipped to get scraps of blood to help you with the daily clan donations. Unfortunately, Adventurer’s cloak does not work in Elite Dungeons.
    • Monsters in the Elite dungeons are a huge source of experience if you can run the Hot Time in solo.
      • Filled with Elite-type monsters; using an elite weapon is advantageous
      • Similarly, Magical Creatures are located in some areas (see table below), use a red weapon to clear waves faster

Note: Monsters in Ivory Tower Catacomb Laboratory have exceptionally high stats for their level. It is not recommended to farm Exp, PoB and RSS here.

 

Weapon Prioritization/Recommendation:

  1. Elite Weapon – UR grade priority (easier to craft than rare grade weapons), high damage against elite monsters in the areas you’ll be spending most of your time farming. Effective from levels 200-213 & 230-260 in farming PoB/RSS.
  2. Red Weapon – High damage multiplier against magical-type monsters. Some places in Elite Dungeon and Field include of magical creatures. Investing in your Red Equipment set is also a good investment to farm the Temporal Rift and collect scraps for UR crafting. Effective from levels 214-229 in farming PoB/RSS.
  3. Blue Weapon – A fair alternative for those who don’t have the luxury to build Elite and Red weapons. However, weapon enhancement should be at least +20 and must be limit-broken for efficacy.

 

Daily Checklist:

  1. Trials of Experience
  2. Clan Fireplace
  3. 20 sub-quests (500 C-Grade scrolls/day)
    • Lvl 200 subquest scrolls
    • Lvl 230 subquest scrolls

    Can you create 1-180 leveling guide?

    • DK
      May 1, 2018 at 6:29 am

      Yes. We will split it into 2 guides: 1-120 and 121-180. Hopefully until mid-May 🙂

    Hello from Japan server!
    Now my region’s servers also have been increased max char lvl to 260 for the last several days,
    and it shows that entering Forest of Secrets Canopy needs at least lvl 210.
    So I wonder where the sweet PoB / RSS farming dungeon staying lvl 190 – 209 is.
    It might be specification difference though. Mantle and Castle Siege are also still unavailable.
    Thanks & cheers!

      Hi Nekocat! There is a Lvl 190 Golem that drops PoB / RSS at Ivory Tower Laboratory. However, you will need a Red set or at least a red weapon because that monster is magical type and have 3x higher stats than monsters of its level.

    “Monsters should be at least 7 levels lower than your current level to still be able to get sufficient amount of Proofs of Blood (PoB) and Red Starstones (RSS) from Evil of Blood (EoB) monsters.”

    What happened to being within 4 lvls for best drops!?!

    • DK
      May 3, 2018 at 4:16 pm

      Within ±7 is still effective in this patch. Notice in the chart that available EoB monsters have large level gaps. From 182, 206, 214, 222, 248, 254, 262, 268 (Excluding Ivo Lab)
