Lineage 2: Kratei's Cube Update
The folks from Lineage 2 are bringing in a new update that will see 20 minute timed PvP matches added to the game. Taking place in a maze called Kratei Cube, this addition will allow players to "pit their battle prowess and skills against friends and foes alike."
Over the years, Lineage II players have been known to push the envelope when it comes to PvP and PvE. With the recent additions of contestable Fortresses and the unrelenting continent of Hellbound, there has been plenty to do. Now, with the release of Gracia Part 2, players have another venue to pit their battle prowess and skills against friends and foes alike.
Kratei’s Cube is the latest PvP and PvE addition that allows players to fight against one another and creatures in a twenty minute timed matched. Unlike other events, players earn points for killing other players, as well as creatures within the Kratei Cube’s maze of rooms. Players with the highest point total after the round is over earn Fantasy Isle Coins, which can be exchanged at the Fantasy Isle’s NPC Paddies for valuable rewards. Finding and slaying a rare creature is worth up to 50 points and greatly could mean the difference between victory and defeat! Also, whenever you die in the Cube, your CP, MP and HP are fully restored, so you can go right back into the fray if there is time left on the match with no point loss.
Kratei’s Cube is available at the ever-expanding Fantasy Isle area and is accessible to players level 70 or higher. With up to 25 players in addition to the Kratei’s Cube creatures, there will be enough challenge for everyone! And with matches starting every half hour, there is hardly any downtime. If players missed entry for one match they only need to wait for the next, or if the match is complete, sign up for the next! Kratei’s Cube is perfect for quick, fast paced action that doesn’t require a lot of down time -- just jump in and fight.
When players are ready for a break from battle, they can enjoy many of the other sights and experiences available on Fantasy Isle. From the Monster parade to socializing with other players, there is a wide variety of activities to keep them busy. When players are ready to go back to the hunt, they also have the option of participating in Underground Coliseum battle matches, Kratei’s Cube for continued rewards, or teleporting back to the main land and to continue their adventures.
