READ THE RULES
We have successfully infiltrated Gludio, and we have taken up guard positions as our first step of infiltrating the society of Lineage 2 Reborn, where we will get a full scope of the local crime and find recruits to our cause.
Clan Big Guys is here For You. New players are welcome. Newbie buffs end at lvl 25, but Clan Hall buffs keep giving. They're C-grade buffs and should help get you caught up to us with very limited pain compared to usual.
For some background information, Lineage 2 is an MMO with open-world PvP (base game was released at around 2004) that was widely considered to be an Eastern equivalent of WoW - so much that even today, it retains it's popularity. We are playing on a server with an Interlude expansion (widely considered to be the best due to balancing issues) at x1 rates, which is a way to say that EXP/money gain is 1:1 from the original release.
While at a glance, it may look like yet another Korean grinder, the endgame includes massive wars for the right to kill Epic Raid Bosses or own castles - limited entry zones exclusive to player clans (guilds). Couple that with open-world PvP and it's not difficult to see that Lineage 2 offers an almost unique experience of participating in the equivalent of Mexican Gang Wars without taking the Lead Pill subdermally and generously donating your organs to the cartel.

Clan Leader: DiaUBERGOLD or ImustBuff
Whisper him or ImustRecharge for immediate directions and support. Also commonly available players are HeyBud, PanzerKitchen, and Brogue. They can at least help you out with a clan invite. We look forward to hearing from you.
Ok we fixed it. Interlude and Classic have two different requirements on file size. It should work for all now.
Game instantly crashes when I sign in and enter game. Not sure what's happening.
Turns out I was just talking about 9/11 conspiracy theories too much. It worked fine 5 minutes afterward.
Many such cases!
>they are still playing Click on Monster: the brazillian throne
Everyone here seen the thread, I don't think you will get any more people from around here. Why don't you fully migrate to your general on cuckchan and stay there?
The guy that made that thread died from vaxx maxing.
>died from vaxx maxing
he wasn't ready
What's your problem, buddy?
cry more lel
I have delved into the depths of hell, and at this time I have not seen this thread's terrible reflection there-- in cuckchan.
Now some fucking faggot's going to make one out of spite aren't they.
Introducing our new clan mascot bogey. It's nice to have new members around and he's dead.
- Some certain rogue luck resulted in a fp+6 helm first try. I bought two and now have a spare I don't need. Honestly kind of annoying. I can now fulfull my dreams of becoming the most popular exp idol, and rich too.
- Rech is now blue. Pic related
- Some dumb shit idk.
Stronk, come back. They got rid of the captcha system because they have some new advanced bot detecting software. Big content update. Be sure to run updates when you log back in.
>New advanced bot detecting software
Any details on that?
Uh... no. I was jk. There's still captchas. There was a moment in chat, server was notified of a multiboxer being banned. They were in an endgame zone too, so it was someone's long term project.
I have autism and you can too.
I like this spot in pic 92 because it makes giran look garbage with awful lod models and half the stuff doesn't appear. Also makes my ass nice and cold.
and the pics fucking died
A couple secret rbs at di I found behind doors. That avadon drop though.
Avadon circlet 6.59%
Avadon circlet pattern [293-877] 1.97%
Poor panzer can only dream.
What's the origin behind those pictures with Touhou(?) characters and some fucking Chinese text? Another one of those I remember clearly is that one with "Three letter agent glow so bright"
Lurk for two years before posting again.
>he doesn't know
Ooh boy, you missed a good time back then. Sucks for you, newfag.
I remember how the deus vult one made retards chimp out.
[unrestricted Kang noises]
What a time to be alive
I want to post in thread too.
Exploring di. Yes that's underwater archers. You can probably guess how many people have been there.
Stronk, Panzer here. I hope you do not mind. It will look like you were robbed. I organized and cleaned your inventory quite a lot for you. You were sitting on a gold mine of mats and keys that would probably take quite a long time to move. I sold a lot of this stuff to the clan warehouse and for honest values to some players. Your debt was reduced by 34.5kk, so it's currently 100kk owed. And you're sitting on about 31kk in your wallet, I forget. A lot of inventory was held up by quest items which sold well. Normally I would not do this, but I logged in and saw 70/80 with like 1 slot open in your warehouse. So I hope you will see it as a favor. A lot of this stuff you had was accumulated from others logging your character, so it might have been a lot for you to deal with that others just neglected. You should be able to seamlessly enter/exit Rift lobby now for a while. haha
Again, sorry for the shock this may cause. If there's stuff you want or want to do, I can help you out. Also you still have some random items that are probably worth selling if you want to have a go with that. CWH was filled by a certain point.
And we hope all is well with you, you're missed.
Warning pph at critical levels.
My train got stuck on a box, then I got stuck behind a barrel and died. Nice bd helped me with my gaming so I felt less bad.
Goyim can't be stolen from, only farmed of their produce.
I have become the dancebot. There's no stopping now.
Yeah fuck angels.
MoS isn't easy.
Prophet is now 75. This marks the beginning of the Subclass Quest event.
Also. You, the specific person in the audience. You have no excuse not to level tyr anymore.
Poor bugger wants to return to his home planet. Not on my watch.
Definitely gotta put that bird back in its place, Myrcia.
Some of you are probably thinking, "gee, the Clan Hall is nice, but it's quite bare." While it's true it only comes with options to add drapes for décor, we were lucky enough to raid the nearby Holocaust museum and knab ourselves one of the fabled masturbation machines. It's a retrofitted model (few of the originals survived to this day). It features a self-service lever like you might find on a slot machine. Obviously there's a hole for your manhood. Just face the machine, insert erect member, and pull the lever for the pumping action. It simultaneously displays images of naked women or anime girls, whatever you supply to the rolodex. There's also a position on the side to service two clan members at once. Enjoy, Fuckers!
The only thing my clan hall needs is my friends, and sex machines. There's only one though so we have to share.
Can't wait to try out my new armour.
They were trying to collect some essence from a magic tree or something so I decided to cut it down to speed up the process.
This pixy kicked my ass so I tried to skewer it with an arrow and then it kicked my ass. Honestly I'd probably play a fairy if it was available.
LS on the left are todays earnings. 9 buffs, 4 high 46, 4 regular 46. Please praise me, please praise me, please praise me for all my hard work. Having so much money makes me want to just throw it away. Please be ready to catch it all. I like how you can see the time of day change throughout the pics. I also like how you can see my exp being slowly sucked out of me from the cruel realities of this world.
Good work anon!
Only thing a google search of "fumomo" brings.
WOW WHAT A DEAL THE MERCHANTS HAVE REALLY OUT DONE THEM SELVES THIS TIME
What do lucky charms do?
They're magically delicious.
clan hall edition more like ded game edition
No necro bumping. Reported.
This game looks really cool. How's Warsmith play?
Yo, I have an alt warsmith that I've gotten up to lvl 56 or 57. Honestly it's a fun class that has a unique role as an in-field resupply. You can craft shots and arrows for people that depleted their stock so people don't have to return to town. I didn't get much of this experience because I leveled it as an alt, but the brief utility play I got in some parties was a lot of fun. They have pole expertise, so they can run trains with good gear, but they don't have the dps of other classes that can do this. They get to summon mechanical pets of sorts that can be quite powerful, but ultimately warsmiths are not "real" damage dealers.
As for Crafting. Crafting is a waste of mats due to the meta state of the game until you get to B-grade really. There are some C grade items you can craft, but there's not much profit in it, and many players already cover this area with their offline shops.
You're more than welcome to give it a try.
Excuse me for screenshot hiatus. The following screenshots are an example of hubris as well as my trek.
I've refrained from posting any screenshots until a certain event happened.
A small background, if you will.
Subclass is a pretty big deal in this game. To complete a quest for subclass in this game, one must camp five (5) raid bosses in total. After the first four die (their spawn time is 12h of unconditional downtime + 24h window in which it can respawn from time of last kill), one has a short opportunity to interact with a chest that spawns immediately after a raid boss dies. The chests despawns after a minute or two. You don't even need to be the one to kill the boss or in a party that kills the boss, just wait for a chest and after the boss dies, just walk up to it and talk to it.
Long story short, I've talked to people around the server, found out when the 24 hour window of respawn was for each boss, got to their locations and AFK'd in the game until the bosses spawned. After that, I've fed the boss info to a friendly ally that needed the same quest. They kill it, I get the NPC to talk to to progress the quest. They were real helpful too, teleporting me to the next loc. Everybody hates Sunsets on this server for being PK-happy russians (though really, most are ukrops as far as I can tell with SLAVA UKRAINI titles), but they delivered. How much time was the wait total for me for those 4 bosses, you ask? Oh, around 32 hours.
Then you get to Baium.
A subclass quest requires you to take a special knife (a quest weapon) and stab Baium's toe with it. You don't even need to wait for him to die, just walk up to him and stab him. There, you're done. However, it's not all that easy.
To even gain access to Baium, you are required to complete a quest Arrogant Search, at least mid-way. You need to walk up to Toi 7 at least, then hit a certain mob for ~40 minutes. Why is that? Because some korean developer put a quest item acquire trigger to "on hit" instead of "on kill" and jacked up the odds to minus eleven. After you get an item, a quest gives you a choice about whether you want to continue on, and if you do, you can kill mobs normally for that fabric on the same floor and the one above. Granted, they're different mobs, but those 40 minutes of doing obscure shit nobody not in-the-know would figure out is what makes the game.
Then, there is Baium itself. Baium is one of the epic raid bosses in Lineage II. He drops a special Baium's Ring at 100%, which is an item that gives more crit power and accuracy for a slot that usually gives none. This is something called "epic jewelry" because it is unique to that one Epic Raid Boss and people really, really want to get it. So much that it's monetary value is most likely ABOVE the carried adena cap, which in the game is 2.3b. The most powerful alliances (containing 3 clans max, usually up to cap) on the server congregate, attend Raid Boss respawn timers (8h instead of normal 24h) and fight over the territory. You do not need many people to kill a Raid Boss assuming best equips, maybe one or two parties's worth (9-18 people). People usually bring many more.
Alliances fight over the right to kill Epic Raid Bosses in this game. And Baium is special because anyone that wants to have a subclass must deal with the alliance that wins that right. I've been told earlier by one of them that "to not get PK'd at baium, exit clan and don't talk to anyone". And yet this happens.
Once you talk to an Angelic Vortex on top of the Tower of Insolence, your character enters Baium's location, his raid boss floor. From that point on, if you restart or leave the game, you reappear in the nearest town. After Baium is awakened, no one else can port to where he is. So if you get killed by someone, tough shit. And if that's the ally that won the pvp over the right to kill Baium, TOUGH SHIT because you are one player and they brought friends.
They told me "exit clan and don't talk to anyone", but I've tried not to exit clan because I didn't want clanmates's reputation to go down the drain in front of a powerful ally. They also check people for whether they're part of a clan they have a war with, it's really autistic. They basically told me our clan had someone they had a beef with named "Fumomo" and PK'd me. Baium respawns in 5days (unconditional timer) + 8hours (Baium window) instead of 12h + 24h (normal Raid Boss) and then killed me over it. So that means to have a chance at a subclass, I had to wait 5 more days - and I didn't even know if they were going to camp this one, either!
Well, I've talked shit about them in clan chat and then suffered for it. However, fuck them.
Straight five days later, I log in during Baium window. HeyBud, the glorious bastard that made 75 right before me is waiting on him, having waited on all RB's just like I did earlier on. I get summoned by nwo ally, the ones fighting Insanes, the alliance that crashed my plane in the post above. A result of Bud's negotiations. A bunch of people are sitting around without clan tags. Then out of nowhere nwo proceeds to pack up and leave. Restock, something else? What could it be? And then the entrance to Baium area opens. This was around 2 hours in the 8 hour window, in which the boss is spawned. Aw shit, here we go again.
I whisper to the last nwo around that said something in white chat that boss is up, they then swoop in and kill the boss uncontested. No pvp, nothing. I sit near the door, wait for them to aggro the boss, walk up to boss and stab with the quest knife. Bud does the same. Nobody kills us over stupid shit.
I can't believe I was worrying so hard over this.
You need a top B weapon for the latter part of the first subclass quest. We've made economic efforts to prepare for that and managed to complete it. The second subclass quest aside from a financial requirement is pretty much a formality - mix some reagents, kill this mob, last hit that mob. Which is exactly what we were doing today.
PP, the semi-shared clan character, now has a Warcryer subclass. It effectively means that it can switch it's profession in town to a Warcryer, as if a level 40 Orc Mystic which made the choice to advance to a Shaman, then a Warcryer. Except it's not an orc. we wuz kangz n shiet nigga I swear to god

Thank you for reading my blog. I held off from posting for a bit in the very unlikely case some faggots from the server browsed this board. I will level WC until 56, at which point it gets Haste 2 all over again and can help our Tyrant semi-unassisted.
I really got it though on the very next kill after the all but eagle drop. Chegg Fregght
NO ONE WILL ESCAPE THE CRITS OF THE PIT ARCHERS. THE PIT ARCHERS WILL CLAIM ALL THAT WALK INTO AGGRO RANGE.
Bud, come borrow FP +6. And don't go getting a Red Name with that shit.
I can wear Zubei's. Loaning Brogue bwh.
Look at the look on Brogue's face.
>Get me out of this thing.
Today was a busy day!
Warcryer was successfully powerleveled to level 56, at which is got the much needed Haste 2 buff. It's still missing Great Might/Great Shield/Critrate/Accuracy/COV buffs, but we can confidently use it in our future grinding sessions. Special thanks to all supports who dutifully sat outside of party, getting no EXP in the process. You were all Big Guys with lots of loyalty.
I miss playing this and I wish I could fix things fast enough to be able to rejoin properly. I hope dai is still alive.
take as much time as you need
I'm trying my best but everything just seems so bleak
I'm slowly working towards coming back, specially in a permanent status that won't have me getting fucked by the things that have beel plaguing me since forever ago... Im just worried by the time I'm able to do something, everything and everyone will be gone...
Dunno what your time table is, Rud, but your mage is lvl 65 (or 66) which is in range of our high levels. With you we can get back to an aoe mage party on mains on occasion, or you can leech/heal/light dps with our subs that are lower level than you right now in the 50s. That and I have an SE that's 61 that I can duo with you. Tons of options. Tons. Also there's some other options which I won't say here.
That SE account is shared too, and I won't be leveling it much at all. Just got wild magic spell book in hopes of reaching 62 to make Striders with it. We're running Rift regularly which means we have a full party or close. Anyway... whether it's a month or several, you'll be in range to play. Dark times are behind us.
It's my turn to post in the thread.
Pro tip, O(n) = O(1.5n).

Too intense to get screenshots of the action.

Yo dawg, I heard you like metas, so we put a meta in your meta.
Serious Lifestone drought in Giran right now.
There's about a dozen buy shops. More green than purple in the hall.
Hey Dai, Rech did it. He's 68. He made it, through thick and thin.
Um... He has a problem though. His testicular cancer spread to his brain, and he can't figure out how to 30% on demand. It's effecting his bi-son??? I didn't know he had kids. Anyway, we tried giving him Demon robes and I have a low C wep with Health SA, and he can't make it work. Tried it with bsb rank 6, and he got close. Many websites do not work that may have the answer. Do you know if there's a technique out there, what it may be? Thanks.
Some cool gloves I had to genocide entire population of bugmen for. That fella is the last one alive. He's surprisingly chill about it.
Myrcia and Rech did some serious labor yesterday.
Account creation, character creation, TP funding, boss listing and mapping, and escorting.
In other news, I found the edge of the flat earth.
We have men in the League that have now infiltrated Oren.
Our power grows mighty.
The tree speaks to me... What did it mean by this?
It doesn't want you to leave.
Don't be hasty.

http://l2j.ru/index.php?p=9 - Limits of selling seeds/buying fruits
Not necessarily indicative of the server (some manor fruit turn ins have fixed max cap on fruit turn in per castle) - but use this as a rough estimate.
What a lovely lovely resource.
They stole my train, so I stole their adena.
78+ se with PoW on a 52 destro

These guys pulled all 3 wings of pavels at once.
They deleveled their destro from 58 to PL a sub.
Oh ok maybe it was CoV, but I know se had PoW because they cast it on me once.
found these in a folder I didn't quite expect, they were supposed to be a retell of events that I never got around finishing
Well-dressed man offered to trim my swords and now they glow.
Got destro 61 but I'm lvl 60 now at 93%.
Save me from these fucking garbage CH buffs.

Next big planned farming spot. Necropolis of Martyrdom is a much farther walk from Giran than Aden, meaning less competition in Quest Event Period week. But it also has less rooms.
Catacombs are a game of musical chairs, it seems. Although, for some reason, nobody seems to want these rooms with cancel.
Profitable day today.
Special thanks to Panzer, who is slowly beginning to figure out how to play Destro.
Table for the "Little Wing" quest.
tl;dr: Exarion has the best odds of not giving you a dud
1\4 Chance wasted.
Fighting in that battle alone is a win in my opinion.
After all this time we discovered who is Fumomo.
By some karmic law, we are apparently allied with Fumomo somehow.
Btw, I'm not happy about how this went down. I mean it's a success, but it's not a triumph. I'm an ass kisser. I'm over here in TheBoys' clan hall playing songs and casting heal on one of their dwarves that told a buffer to heal him. I'm not thrilled about this role. So I can't gloat. I won't say I told you so. You guys know how to have fun, and being participants rather than pets is a better life to live. I'm just a cheerleader faggot.
GO CLAN BIG GUYS
(I hate my life)
But it's done. Grats to you two for having noble chain. I guess we'll have to find glory some other way. Maybe we can participate in some sieges and even own a castle.
SAVE YOUR SCROLLS, ASSHOLES
>You guys know how to have fun, and being participants rather than pets is a better life to live.
learn guitar and be the best version of yourself, like me pic related
"duddddeeee gitar rock on maynnnn!!!!!!"
After many hours of tireless efforts, our very own ImustRecharge has reached the major milestone of nobless. The power of the BIG GUYS grows every day.
Quite the feat. Grats, Rech.
Btw, I thanked Vud today, and he said to just whisper him if we need nobles done. So it sounds like we have a legit in. He just said as long as we don't show them any hostility. Hopefully they don't show us any either. Otherwise we'll have to wipe them all out to restore balance to the world.
Merge soon equals happy active serb
can't fix shit if squad doesn't wanna fight
imma go lurk and play fe tell me when you're in the mood for fights instead of slave labor
Summoning techwizard to fix the screenshot.
It's all distorted, but you kind of can see the Tunic of Zubei. Lucky, kinda useless, but cool.
We will join the war and become free men.
You ask a lot of character development from us in such a short time. I don't even have time to bitch and moan!
Looks fine to me
>You ask a lot of character development from us in such a short time.
it's been 8-9 months since we started on this server
if it takes another half a year to a point where people start to think we can fight (tfw no cp/S gear/epics/outnumbered/not enough recruits its too difficult helllppppp) I'd rather just fuck off because it's too boring
tell me when you're all big guys cheers
It was stupid of me to delete that script, right? I think I wanted to make a better tool, but that didn't happen. Now I'll spend the next hour trying to remember how I did that.
Last time I didn't want to share that Python script because it was using several modules that I don't know if I could share.
No means to xp until destros are caught up.
Be bored if you want, but you pushed for a WC comp and are now on hiatus.
I shouldn't have spoiled your fun on the noble boss. I was worried about the 4-6 of us that still need subs etc, and the obstacles coming from allying with an isolated clan. If it's the path to fun, fine. I said I'd go along with it. I just don't agree with it.
not here to argue
WC comp was pushed because sps (only dd aside from sorc) logged so erratically that it became impossible to build a comp around him and destro farm is even more meta than mages (in other words, it was optimal to do so) I will not apologize for it
"spoiled fun on noble boss" isn't it, I see no desire from you nor rech to gear/level for fights (pacifism and alt sickness respectively) and cookie clicker only goes so far
It probably wouldn't be needed again, but it so happened that I decided to play in fullscreen instead of windowed that day. It's a very weird bug.
Thank you for putting your time into it.
You're right in most places. I won't go into the alt topic because most of these are not alts for the sake of avoiding S grade. If we ally with *OPSEC REDACTION OPSEC REDACTION* it's fine. Maybe I just wanted you fucks to hurry up with nobles, so I could have a useful character in the comp. You dismissed my tank for natural causes, and you dismissed my SE. I do not have the energy for yet another class, yet I managed to get destro 65, like a tank in a race, reaching a finish line while bolts, tracks, and ammunition just spilling off of it.
(cont.) I think last time involved a PNG decoder that made it require a bunch of modules.
>Thank you for putting your time into it.
No problem, trying to fix corrupted data tickles my programming autism. Better than endlessly browsing imageboards.
This needed more time than I expected because I went at it wrong and got a discolored mess. And because family always detects when I start even the smallest project.
Bottom rows have black padding because the screenshotting software dropped those pixels when it processed a 1366 pixels wide image as 1364.
Attached file is a Python script, should work with whatever Python 3 version you can find. It's a minimal BMP decoder, as much as needed to shift those pixels into the correct rows. It's hardcoded for "width + 2" now, and it's probably missing a step if it's not used on images with certain width (x * 3 % 4 == 0).
Thank you, works like a charm. But I hope I won't have to use it much.
Here's the official Tunnel Bears jacket, get yours today.
Not the best pics to capture the revenge numbers, but it was sweet seeing so many digits.

This is a mess, and I don't want any bad blood between us. I'm trying to give you what you want with a destro pt etc. It's just a bit premature and challenging. I speak for all of us when I say we enjoy having you around even if it's just to chat, so a hiatus is only necessary if you will it. I don't think you should feel any guilt for wanting to take a break, nor wanting to get your character built. I mean really... no hard feelings. I'm sorry for the clash. We're really trying our best to follow and make gains. I don't know if it's just a little too hardcore, an optimal thing to do if it's doable, a necessity... It can happen, and it will happen. It's only just barely happening. I just need a little more time or your help. I don't know if it got lost in chat, but I don't even care about looting if we push xp into my destro. You guys looting out of pt actually speeds things up for me to kill more mobs during limits. I don't know what else to say out loud. I hope you're not pissed.
Dai, I've grown attached to NM heavy and my tank, but I'm more attached TO YOU
It's currently up on my shop.
I tried every name in OP and none are on at this time, I'm guessing you guys are mostly burgers which will make me the odd one out, anyway add Kinji whenever you can be bothered to.
Two, maybe three I can't count, bosses down. One crystal upgraded to 11.
Three destroyers melt this thing.
I HOPE NOBODY WANTS A FUCKING CLAN INVITE FOR A 24 HOURS
Hory Sheit, bros
hanging out with Renne with Stronk and myself (pazner)
Turns out there is a difference in most heals when using blessed or regular. Somehow most of BP's heals specifically are not effected by type of spiritshot. But all of SE's heals have 3 different values when using no shot, regular spiritshot, and blessed. BP's heals like Major Heal are not effected. But his greater battle heal is. He can tell you more on specifics. Renne found this out for us when I gibbed him a stack of regular spiritshot D.
Very embarrassing how this could escape us, but we may have gone off of the major spells bp uses as proof for all.
Gaming just got more expensive.
I'M COMING ON RIGHT NOW
For the love of God....
