Lineage 2 Adena Farming - Effective ways to get Adena
So let's get this bread: Lineage 2 Classic Adena Farming
One of the most effective and popular ways to farm Adena in the Lineage 2 Classic is to spoil.
Spoil: Creating a spoiler was and has been one of the best ways to obtain materials and that is traduced to Adena.
For low-level spoilers (25-30) you can try spoiling in Plains of Dion, go for Delu Lizardman Scout (https://l2wiki.com/classic/Delu_Lizardman_Scout), you can get Varnishes from 1 to 3 with a high rate. You can also try spoiling steel at Abandoned Camp from lvl 20 to 30, from lvl 30-35 you can try spoiling SOP with Windsus (https://l2wiki.com/classic/Windsus). You can also try getting Iron Ore from the Red Rock Ridge. Nevertheless, to monetize the Iron Ore, before you go to Red Rock Ridge you should try to get some Varnish from and then craft some Steels, which you can try to sell for more Adena. From higher levels, places to spoil are Enchanted Valley, Forest of Mirrors and Dragons Valley.
If you don't have or don't want to create a spoiler, the best way is to try to do quests and always grind with a quest ON. Besides that, if you look through the forum of Lineage 2 you might find that Adena drops are quite scarse and that the Adena, might not be enough to buy ss, drops, or things to boost your character, and that Adena drop does not escalate as the hunting grounds levels increase. If you go to the history books you might find that SS use was a luxury and that most of the grinding was done without them. If you are the type of player that can afford to kill mobs with SS on, EXP scrolls on, etc, you should consider doing it to the point that you are earning enough SP for your skills.
In my opinion, the best way to farm is always with a quest on, with soulshots or spiritshots if you can get it from the L2Store. if you can’t there are quests you can do to get NG shots:
Sell your mats at the right price: This game is a progressive one, one of patience
I must focus on this point as all of the items you get daily have a price in Adena and time. Make sure you get the top price for them.
This advice is the one that can give you better profits.
- - It's better to save and keep materials and sell them when it´s prices rise. I know you will need quick Adena sometimes, but the sacrifice of waiting for worth.
- - Check Giran and Monster Derby often. Track the prices every day! If you need to put your own sell-shop or if you can sell to the best buy-shop. Check NPC shop prices to avoid selling under the minimum benefit.
What to build to make the max of your time and speed up your progress in the game:
Better weapon = Fast killing, more exp, more Adena, more chance of drops. Maybe you don't even need a powered armor if mobs don’t touch you. :D
Better armor = If you are a melee char/dagger/archer go for Brigandine, you can find Brigandine helmet from players in Giran and Brigandine chest/gaiters at Giran armor Shop. Brigandine boots and gloves are not top D, don't let people sell you as if were top. If you are a wizard, go as far as you can with Devotion Set, +15% cast speed will help you enormously. If you receive too much damage, change to Mithril Set.
Jewels = They will drop, don't mind jewels.
Reasons you should go Fishing in L2Classic:
Fishing, it is an automatic afk activity, increases exp and can be profitable. Fresh fishes can be used to obtain, fish stews in the fisherman (Grocery Store of most towns) expand inventory, warehouse and shop slots.
Fishing can be done starting at level 20 while you're AFK, so if you can keep your PC on, you might as well fish
In terms of rewards, the exact numbers are as follow (As tested in Skelth):
- - 2 minutes per attempt history with: (Normal rod, and normal bait).
- - 80% success rate of catching a fish (yes, fishing can fail)
- - 2/3 Distribution - Blue Mackerel
- - 1/3 Distribution - Fresh Blue Mackerel
- - Very Small Chance - Golden Treasure Chest
- - EXP scaling based on character level.
An approximate of 200k can be done, depends on what you trade at the fisherman in a period of 24h. Fishing is a feature that should be used, especially for the community that is just starting out in classic, and you should be looking to fish as often as possible when you're not EXPing.
2. Goddess of Destruction: Orfen Chronicle
Right now, the best way to get Adena in the Orfen Chronicle is to afk macro at Refinery, tough you need gear for this. All the info I can gather from the years played up to this chronicle in official servers, is the farm on events. During an event, put your favorite playlist ON farm the event and hope for any decent item. Nevertheless, all items have a price, don't sell it cheap because you want to see the results of your farming right away.
Another Adena obtaining method, once you got a capital. Is to buy and sell items, basically, buy at X price and sell at X+2 price. What I like to do, is to combine brooch boxes, basically try to make lvl 5, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald etc. Register everything you sell and buy, every drop you get, every teleport jump you make (not that strictly), but the idea is that, if you keep track of everything you do, don't underestimate on the details that way you can see what does the wallet good and what does not.
Extra tips: Never spend all of your Adena. It is recommended that you always have a stock left, if there is any cheap item, any sudden L2Store promotion, basically Adena prepared to buy something. Use your guts tough, start small then go big. Never met a stacked player that said, they didn't lose anything on the way, that’s why it's important to never spend all of your Adena, you can start over, just like in the real world. Extra advice we can give, if that you run into some Adena, and don't need anything in particular, save it, don't cancel that lucky drop by throwing it away.
As new players, to learn the economy of a server, the circle of events of a server is the main difficulty, suggested navigation through the forum of community discord might be the best way to speed up your experience, even facebook or twitter We hope you have fun alone, with friends or clan. Search for the way that makes the most of your type of gameplay. The content on this game is very wide, the ways to get Adena are limited as your creativity is.
