    Is it me only, but in this server people are doing kartia-baylor-kama-cc and then nothing else?
    I was searching for people for gos, like 3 days and couldn't even gather 4 people to do it.
    On the other hand everybody is running around with fancy items, aka the community is not so weak to hunt in those zones.
    There is some weard problem and i want to understand why is that.

    90% of people play in cp, so they made istances/xp with the same people everyday. That's why you don't find people to go xp on hunting zones

    That's simply the after effect of making baylor/kartia/nm kamaloka/atelia instance so interesting (xp wise, they're boring as ****)

    Yeah, basicly it takes already 2-3 hours to do every instances which gives you enough xp to get 101 quickly, people don't go for endless grind that will give you 1/3 of an atelia instance.

    Well that's the mistake of people, this game dosen't end at 101, you need to do istances + exp, to get 103/104

    what is the point then ?
    people prefer to make instances with few drops that are not even worth selling in auction house, than to do it in open field

    Also is developers fault, they should start adding to this game hunting zones, instead of more istances, to get the essence of this game back, back in the day if you want to exp you need to leave town, now you are able to make 1-101 inside citys
    1-76 = Exp pouch
    76-85 = Scroll xp
    85-101 = istances
    In less than a month u are 101 w/o leaving cities

    Maybe ppl have fancy items like PVE weapons, boss jewels and +8 armors and still dying like elpys because of no brain. Plus why would they go out of town for an endless hunt really. Maybe if there will be a chance for a pve, pvp stone drop or atleast some nice adena, craft packs or whatever but like that, now it's just not worth. You will see in the next chronicle, quests, instances etc for 102+.

    making instances with no xp and geting party in open field ppl cry, cause cw's dont let them xp, they dont have gear for 1 or another zone..
    now when dev made instances with more xp ppl dont go openfield cause its pointless.. making atelia+kama in 1h with good pt its 2x more than making in open field without breezes and other vit related ****

    so qq moar.. cry moar.. write petition to korean developers about how sad u are that u have loads of time to farm and ppl who plays here actualy works and dont want to grind and want to pvp.. also dont forget to write petition to all presidents about same problem maybe there will be law in all countrys that work hours doesnt exceed 5h/month with same sallary so ppl can sit and play l2 all day long..


    this game has evolved along with ppl who started playing it 10years ago(when they were kids)..
    now those ppl are 25+++++ and some of them are still playing it.. but they arent kids anymore, they have other problems like work, family,bars and list can go on and on...
    so developers shorten the time needed to lvlup by making instances, then again shortening it by making instances with more xp.. so ppl can still play and enjoy without having to grind endless hours like in c1-ct2-2 versions.. when there was only grind and nothing more

    maybe try to create new thread to say how happy you are with the new instances with sick drop
    30 min into fairy settlement and spoil = 3.5m+ .. 30 min into kartia 90/95 can be equal to zero

    @BadJoe
    i do kartia 95 alone (group kartia enter with box, and go all the way solo) with drop rune, and 90% of the time i get 4 drops (which makes me 5-60kk(60 if get wep rcp+wep frag+ewr+pass and same on 2nd run)
    and by saying that drops are bad.. go with party to gos/atelia aoe.. with no drops, no spoil (cause mobs spoil there good items with 0.000000000005% chances) ending with 20-40kk of adena from loot, which u gona waste on xp boosts to compensate time that u are wasting in open field, when in that time with no drops u get 2x more xp at instances.. and will endup with 0 adena also.. so where's the point?..
    on 101 lvl in 2h(while clan buff is on) no runes no other l2store related boosts in open field u gona make 1.2-1.5% (and thats if party is very good) and in same 2h by making all instances u gona make 2.5%(with chances to get smth good at baylor/kartia/cc) so again where's the profit?
    i gave u suggestion... if u have so much spare time try convincing koreans so they change game mechanics.. but im sure they will just ignore u, or send u far far away( by that i mean **** yourself)

    next update gona be again instances, some for 102+ ppl, some quests in open fields to farm fractions which will give u boosts, and then forget about it for 1week or more, and in other week make same talismans in 1h)
    and for lower levels there will be new kamaloka(solo kamaloka) to grind 95-101 even faster than now
    ofc there will be giants cave recaped for ppl 99+ but it will be same as EV... forgoten in 1month and it will be solo zone also

    You went offtopic
    i wasn't speak about the game features (that i am aware of), i was speaking for the player base, a.k.a. community

    Open field xp is actually way better than instanced xp.U just need the proper party setup and some decent gear. Also at athelia adena and drops are decent.

    Thing is people are weak and prefer the easy uncontested way of instanced xp, not having to deal with wars and so on.
    That's what I miss from old l2. If u wanted xp, u had to go out, there was no carebear ******ed instances to ruin the game.

    u say better when u get pwleveled by autoattack? :) in 2-3ppl in party with breezes and other stuff?
    try go dry(no runes, no breeze, no nevit, etc) and then confirm it again plx :)
    i was farming my iss to 101 in atelia with decent party(pve titan with +13 pole, pve mage+12 retri,+14retri and in A4 with no wars and so on it was up to 1.5%/h on 100lvl(on 101 u need already 2x of that to reach 102 so 0.75 on 101) same party does kamaloka and atelia inst in 30-35min for comparison and that gives 1.35% on 101
    other comparison: atelia last boss only with pa, 10% exalt, +10%joon +35 from clan gives 75b on overhit, and 1mob in atelia in full pt same "boosts" gives 100-130 that means u need to kill 600+mobs to get that xp
    good party makes 1k quest in 2h at atelia(counting each 2nd mob gives q item = 2k mobs) and by making instance u get same exp in less than 1h

    long term ofc its better, cause instances is 1time/day, but to get party to grind 4-5h in a row its insanly hard

    Power lvled by autoattack? I play autoattack most of the times.
    I stopped reading when u said "try go dry with no runes, etc".
