Today, Netmarble Corp. has released a major update to the popular mobile massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), Lineage 2: Revolution, introducing new pet companions called Agathions for its in-game hero characters.
The Agathion System offers equipable pets that follow the heroes, along with mounts and summons. Agathions are unlocked at Lv. 15 and do not participate in combat. However, they have substats that help to strengthen hero characters. Agathion substats range from P. Atk. / M. Atk., Max HP/MP, Penetrate, Resilient, Crit. Rate, Critical Resistance, Accuracy and Evasion, which can all be obtained from most equipment and soul crystals. The main difference is that Agathions have a set substat, so players cannot adjust these values, but can only increase and strengthen their Grade. For strengthening Agathion substats, players will use the Agathion Menu’s Strengthening tab for a cost of 30,000 Adena or 300 Red Diamonds to increase the selected substat.
Grade Strengthening is only possible when the newly obtained Agathion Soul’s Grade is higher than the Agathion players already own. In this case, the lower grade Agathion can be overwritten with a higher grade, while the existing lower grade will be returned as Agathion Souls to be used in Agathion combination.
Agathions are sealed by grade and can be summoned by collecting Agathion Souls, which can be acquired in the Scarlet Libra Shop and the Bundle Shop.
Available Agathions include:
- Little Demon
- Little Angel
- Royal Hamstar
Agathions will also utilize specialized pieces of equipment that only Agathions may equip called Charms, and feature exclusive Charm slots ranging from one to six. The obtained Charm’s name and number must match to equip, adding a fun challenge for players. Charms will have fixed substats depending on the slot, but the value may change. When using auto-equip, Charms with higher substat values will automatically replace the existing Charm, which then disappear so players will have to take caution when auto-equipping.
The Agathion System will also utilize a series of combinations to create more powerful results. Higher grade Agathions and Charms can be obtained by combining if a player owns three or more of the same grade. Combinations cannot fail and over time, players can obtain all Agathions and Charms. Grade SR Rare Agathions can only be obtained by combining Grade SR or Grade SR Rare Agathions. It’s important to remember that a Charm of the same number must be used as material.
In addition to the Agathion System, new Field Boss named Marlox will challenge players by summoning Demon Totems, which must be destroyed. If players fail to destroy three summoned totems within the time limit, they will be attacked with an AoE attack called Demon’s Sword Aura and will have to defeat Marlox with a different strategy.
Also, a new territory called Schuttgart is now available for players to explore. The territory includes the Northern Immortal Plateau, Schuttgart Snow Field and Spine Mining Zone, as well as new Main Quests, Runes and monsters for players to explore.
Players will get a bit of help in taking on these new challenges, as the max level will be expanded from Lv. 320 to Lv. 360. For current players at Lv. 320, this will challenge them to reach the max level again. In addition, after reaching Lv. 360, players may accrue Exp. up to Lv. 370 and also increase Skill Levels.
Lineage 2: Revolution is available on iOS and Android. For more information regarding Lineage 2: Revolution, visit the game information website (http://l2.netmarble.com) and the official Facebook page (https://facebook.com/OfficialLineage2Revolution/).
