I wanted to go back and try this game again with this update and the Kamel look awesome as well I never went back for them. At least with Lineage you know your in for a grind and well i like the straightforwardness of the Lineage style of grinding i know where a spawn is and i can camp it and grind mobs for a while; none of this running around looking for crap then running around to quest givers. I almost hate grinding quests more than just straight mobs. Too bad i cant log in to my master account UGH. Maybe the 19 dollars to but the game with the free month will have to do i mean its only 5 dollars more than a months sub anyway.

Funny enough you should mention this, I recently (like yesterday) have went back to lineage II after getting bored with WoW.

The games grind has really been improved. The Vitality system is nice (especially you start with it full, giving you a great boost in leveling @ low levels) and the XP grind even then has been improved quite a lot.

They also give full newbie benifits to anyone under like level 40, including "shadow" weapons (so you don't have to use a shitty item or grind forever to get the cash for a good one) and buffs from the trainers, not to mention herb drops are real nice.

Somewhat funny the whole idea of cloaks being something super special that you have to earn. When in reality, they are one of the most simple pieces of garments you can make, especially if you have a cloak without a hood... even easier in the style of the capes on these MMO guys.

Probably can find some player and NPC who can tailor up a fancy shirt, but find a cloak in the world? Nay never.
