Ramp up to a new item system, new endgame gear, and new hairstyles.
In Lineage® II: Goddess of Destruction™, Awakened characters can obtain new armor, weapons, and cloaks and select from new hairstyles. By wearing these new items, you make a clear statement that you have passed the Awakening tests. Characters who are not yet ready to Awaken are not neglected either, as Goddess of Destruction brings exciting changes and perks to the item systems in Lineage® II.
Goddess of Destruction introduces the new R item grade, exclusive to high-level characters. R-grade has four tiers of items, each corresponding to a character's level: R-grade (for characters at level 85 or higher), R90-grade, R95-grade, and R99-grade. Characters can use items from the respective R-grade tier or lower when their character level reaches a particular character level (Level 85 for R-grade, Level 90 for R90-grade, and so on). After Awakening, Kamaels can join the rest of the character races in being able to equip all R-grade armor types, regardless of their class. All R-grade items have specific looks for each race, character type, and gender. Also, the use of Kamael weapons is no longer exclusive to that race.
Item System Changes
In the new item system, most items that drop in the game will be Unidentified. All Common items currently in the game will become Unidentified items in Goddess of Destruction. Unidentified items can be traded, dropped, and sold, but cannot be equipped or enchanted.
To use an item, a character must double-click on the Unidentified item. The Unidentified item then changes into a Bound, Standard, or Blessed item, decided at random. Bound, Standard, and Blessed items can be altered with enchantments. Bound items cannot be traded or sold to others, but a Bound item can be converted into a Standard item with an Unbind Scroll or by speaking to a special NPC. Standard and Blessed items can be traded or sold. Bound and Standard items get a lesser stat boost from enchanting than Blessed items.
Awakened characters can craft a large number of items, regardless of their race or class. Dwarves, however, remain the masters of crafting. They specialize in creating the highest quality R-grade items.
All private shops, warehouses, workshops, and other shops will receive additional item slots. Arrow and bolt quivers will never empty. These changes (and others) let characters of all levels acquire equipment more easily in Goddess of Destruction.
