Homunculus await you in in the latest update for Lineage 2.
You’ll actually be able to summon homunculus companions. To create such a companion, you need blood (HP), soul (SP) and tears (VP). The game has five types of homunculi: baby dragon, chick, goby, angel and orc. Each has its own unique skills. Homunculi can be leveled up: the higher the level of the companion the more bonuses the character receives.
Additionally, the Tower of Insolence has been update, according to the press release. The entrance to the tower is open to researchers from 110 level and above. You can fight monsters on the first three floors: the higher the floor, the stronger the opponents. You can spend no more than 10 hours a week in the Tower of Insolence.
The Imperial Tomb is a mausoleum which you can explore by grabbing the Tomb Raiders quest at the entrance. Finally, the Swamp of Screams is open where monsters only appear during set times: from 13:00 to 15:00, and from 22:00 to 00:00.
