New Weapons

New Weapons - MMORPG.com

Here's a press release that slipped through my fingers when I was travelling on Friday. As has been reported, Lineage II released Chronicle 5: Oath of Blood. Within that release are some new weapons. Enjoy!

 

Friday 8th September/...Lineage® II: The Chaotic Chronicle offers a wide range of weapons for every class type. The choice of weapon can affect how hard you hit if you’re a fighter, or, if you’re a spellcaster, how much damage your spells do. Chronicle 5: Oath of Blood offers even more weapons and a new twist: a blood-stained sword designed especially for Player vs. Player combat.

New Weapons

In Lineage II, items are sorted by grade. Players can wield weapons and armour of certain grades depending on their level; the higher level, the higher grade they can equip. From highest to lowest, the item grades are S, A, B, C, D, and no grade. The highest level players aspire to obtain S Grade weapons and armour.

Chronicle 5 adds a number of new weapons, ranging from A Grade to D Grade. New swords, staffs, axes, and hammers are up for grabs in Chronicle 5. These weapons can also be imbued with special abilities depending on the weapon. Some of these weapon abilities can increase a player’s spell casting speed, increase the player’s health, and more.

The most unique weapon in the game, the Demonic Sword Zariche, is also new to Chronicle 5.

The Demonic Sword

A weapon of slaughter known as the Demonic Sword Zariche brings even more mayhem and chaos to Player vs. Player combat.

All monsters in the world have the chance to drop the Zariche sword. Only one exists in the entire world, and the ground shakes to announce its ominous arrival.

The character that acquires Zariche instantly turns into a player killer. The player’s health and magic points are fully recovered and his or her combat points are enhanced. This makes the player carrying Zariche very difficult to kill, and players who encounter this deadly foe will need to team up to have a chance against Zariche’s power.

In normal Player vs. Player combat, there are penalties for death, such as the loss of experience points. However, these penalties do not apply to either side of a one-on-one battle when a player wielding Zariche is involved. If the Zariche strikes a player down, that player suffers no ill effects upon death. He or she simply appears in the nearest village, finally safe from the bloodthirsty sword.

A player who wields Zariche faces some limitations to their new power. He or she cannot attack or be attacked by players level 20 or below, cannot join a party, and cannot receive heals or buffs from other players.

Zariche is too powerful and ambitious to stay with one person for long, so it will leave its owner after a certain period of time. A lucky hunter who manages to kill the player who carries Zariche has a chance to pick it up and use it for themselves. Whoever brandishes Zariche will lead a solitary life, hunted by all who want a chance to wield its incredible power. Will you be the next player to wreak havoc on the world of Lineage II?
