hi everyone! i used to play l2 a lot back in chronicle 1-7 and since it's f2p now i want to give the game a shot again, especially from level 1 since the game has changed so much since then. i will probably main a warlord for the aoe fun (but not 100% sure). i will be boxing myself a bd+wc most likely when my friends are offline too. i have a few general questions atm: 1) what are the best aoe classes right now? early, mid and late game. 2) what are the best characters to buff those aoe characters? i need to know what my friends are going to play + we'll probably have a boxed buffer (if that's allowed), so that's 4 characters most likely. 3) what's the best leveling spots for a small starting aoe party? what's the first spots worth to aoe (lots of most in one spot)? i remember the kamael island dungeon had quite a lot of 2x monster in it which looks like the first good aoe spot, then the catakombs - has this changed in the current state of the game? i would love if someone could guide us to the best aoe spots in the game <3 4) i would love it if someone knowledgeable in the game would guide us through the gear from level 1. when and where do you get free gear like the shadow weapons or the quest gear that is good enough until a certain level just so we could save as much adena as possible. i think i remember you get almost the best no-grade items for free at the newbie guide at level 7 or 8 not sure. thanks in advance to whomever will help!
