COMBAT GAME GUIDE FOR
LINEAGE 2 REVOLUTION [L2R]
The guide is primarily for combat power (CP) and player vs player. (PvP)
Appgamerz.com i making the biggest gameguide for L2R regarding tips and information to enhance your combat power and PvP play. The leader of TellaHerus and admin on Appgamerz.com, BiarHeru/BunnyHunter made a Bishop and within 2 weeks was among the top 3 with over 500 000 CP.
First let me say this, did we use diamonds? Sure we did but i want to be clear that the gameguide will be divided for dias-users and “normal” player. So what we write will be relevant regardless, just a matter of how fast and how high.
The guide is a ongoing project that updates constantly. Also we will gladly accept relevant tips from you.
To give a taste of the quality of the content let us make an example. HP drain can be read all over different game guides to be the “best” substat. For PVE HP drain is a good substat, even top 3 perhaps but for combat PvP it is useless. Still you see “top” players with HP drain on their PvP outfits… Why? In the guide we explain this further and much much more.

Below the combat game guide is in a user friendly format that is easy to navigate. Remember that it is a work in progress so it is by no means complete and a already written section will also update when needed.
FIRST - WHAT IS COMBAT POWER - CP, EXCEPT VERY MISUNDERSTOOD?
First we need to learn the widely misunderstood function of combat power CP.
This game is not like Legacy of Discord where 2 people on autofight 100% of times wins by the one with higher CP.
If you gonna spend 1 minute reading, then read this:
- Lets say person 1 has 450 000 CP and person 2 has 350 000 CP, and i ask you: Who is the strongest?
Well the only thing i can say is that if you play all aspects of the game player 1 have a higher chance doing more things better.
You se in the value Combat Power (CP) EVERYTHING COUNTS. Yes that is the thing: Even your 2 extra mounts and their equipment, the multiple of skills thats useless (or less useful) for some classes also counts and as a equal value that it does for a class that actually use that skillset.
In PVP COMBAT EVERYTHING DO NOT COUNT. The CP that comes comes from your extra mounts, and all the skills you seldom use with ur class etc. is not in play in a PvP situation.
To this come another factor; all the hundreds different situation that occurs in a battle or in a given situation where two (2) or more players are involved with their unque playstile and their unique skills. And to round this up we have another factor, luck our circumstances.
All those factors sets the outcome.
Now you might understand why looking at a players CP only gives you a very limited information on how a PVP match would end up between that person and .. maybe yourself.
For example: on my server in (in writing moment) there is a person who has over 700 000 CP and in arena beat that person easy (and that is not the point because opponent is played by the computer) but the interesting thing is that compared to another character with 100 0000 lower CP i have more trouble beating. So regardless that anyone can win in arena it shows that CP is not a measure of combat power, it is at most indicative, atleast in the top 10-20%. The person, called Serenity, who i might add is very angry because i writing this, is partly a glass cannon (old word from WoW) when you have done all to get ur CP up but it have little to do with your playstyle and even less for PvP. That person might even have a nice PvP suit, dont get me wrong, but as you already read and will be reading in this guide, equipment is for sure important but far from beeing the most important. I let that “hang” a little because there is a few single items in game that actually really stands out for pvp, but those we list later.
A second very important thing to remember is the skills. For some classes, and again let me take the person Serenity as example who is a swordsinger so the person relies on Melee, the hitting in itself is the primary way to win a 1vs1 and that highly powered weapon give high CP points compared to say a Bishop as myself who do not rely on hitting as a primary way to win but instead the primary “weapon” is the healing skill combined with knock downs. Even if i have high level healing strike and the Bishops ground healing skill combined with my double knockdown that do sot show in the CP but a fraction of its real combat value. For the CP to be a way to compare combat power then the skills should have to be meassured in relevance to their importance / power to win a 1vs 1, but it is not.
So as for a meassure of PvP Combat Power the CP it is indicative at most. If both player are PvP then the CP is a valuable indicator at most, but even then you still have all the factors hanging, the skills you invested and how you use them in your playstyle, your utilisation.
So a high CP player with PVE base on say his 350 000 CP fights a PVP player with 250 000 CP, hardcore towards his playstyle and to make damage to other and take less. Well the second players Surely will win.
COMBAT GAME GUIDE
The guide is constructed with the use of main subjects. Each main subject then have sub subjects. For example, a main subject can be Enhance your equipment and the sub subjects could then be weapon, armor and accessory.
Within each subject, main or sub, there will be cross references to other sections where needed for easy navigation.
So cores have big effect on your toon and combined with the flexibility = a custom made toon. And custom made toon = alot of fun
Note: This is true until all on the server have maxed out their mostercodex because att that point there is no difference ability wise so to speak.
Here is all movies and files. In the combat gameguide there will be a link to the relevant movie/file but offcourse you can also browse directly in the archive even thou you will miss the connected information found in the combat guide.
