Who are we kidding: if you’re playing Lineage 2: Revolution, you most definitely need more Adena than you have. It’s practically the name of the game. Everywhere you look, there’s one opportunity or another to spend currency – sometimes, justifiably so.
Need more pots? That’ll cost you. Soulshots? Same deal. Want to level your fresh R or SR weapon to 30 for a massive CP boost? Tough luck. At level 20 (around the time you get your first 10+1 premium gear deal for free), there’s no way you have the necessary half a million Adena to get it done.
But don’t worry. Regardless of whether you’re a newbie or an experienced player, the guide below will take you through everything you can do to amass a fortune in a matter of days. Sure, you’ll still be able to blow your savings in a matter of minutes, but, hey, at least you’ll have savings to turn to when you suddenly crave some outrageously expensive item in-game.
Daily Dungeon To-Do List
One of the easiest ways to get Adena, especially for low-level players, is to complete a couple of daily instances. Start with the daily dungeon, which you can only complete once a day for free, and score your first 5,000 to 20,000 Adena, depending on the difficulty. You can spend up to 300 red diamonds to reset the dungeon twice and get up to 60,000 Adena, but you can get a better deal for your semi-premium currency in the shop, so we recommend you pass.
The Adena Vault works in a similar way. It can only be completed once per day, but it grants a fortune in Adena – from 50,000 to 250,000 based on the dungeon difficulty (basically, your CP).
Next, the Tower of Insolence – the place where you can get Adena by simply pressing one button. Well, it’s a bit more complicated than that to begin with, because you actually have to beat a floor in order to be able to auto-clear it later on. However, once you down a good couple of dozen floors for the first time, all you have to do is to click the auto-clear button and you can earn anywhere between 5,000 and 25,000 Adena per day, depending on your peak floor level.
Finally, elite dungeons. We actually complied a guide to making the most of your elite dungeon Hot Time in terms of EXP, but many of the same tips apply here. Also remember to complete the daily elite dungeon quest for the instance of your choice, since this can get you between 10,000 and 30,000 Adena per day. Usually, these quests ask you to kill 50 or so specific mobs, which you want to do anyway if you’re afk farming for gold or EXP.
Another useful thing here is the “Daily Hunting Benefits” offer at the in-game shop. Although this does cost some real currency, it’s actually very affordable and it enables your character to automatically sell items when their inventory becomes full during afk farming. Overall, you can save anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 Adena or more by using this handy tool.
Daily and Weekly Quests
Daily quests are great if you can make your character afk farm for long durations of time each day. In Lineage 2: Revolution, you don’t technically have to do what a daily quest asks you to do in order to complete it. Each quest has a duration attached to it. If that amount of time passes from the moment you pick up the quest, you can complete it and get the rewards regardless of whether you actually performed the task or not. The tasks themselves are also pretty simple so whether you afk these quests or otherwise, you can easily bank 20,000 to 40,000 Adena each day.
Weekly quests, on the other hand, must be completed the good-old fashioned way. Sigh… At most, you can pick up 10 of these quests each day for a maximum total of 60 a week. The rewards are decent, though, at about 25,000 to 50,000 Adena per day, depending on your level. You also get 30,000 Adena as a bonus if you manage to complete 20 of these quests in a week.
There is a way to make weekly quests run smoother, but, of course, it’ll cost you real currency. The “Daily Quest Benefits” bundle can be acquired at the in-game shop and basically allows your character to auto-complete weekly quests while you afk.
Log-In, Activity, and Clan Bonuses
A bunch of bonuses are designed to reward you for spending time in-game and they take no more than a few clicks to collect – if you know where to look. For instance, the first 40 minutes you spend online during the day grant you a 15,000 Adena bonus, while some days of the month offer as much as 50,000 Adena for logging in.
Throw in another 10,000 Adena from Daily Activities, which you can collect once you accumulate 100 of a possible 400 Activity Points (or AP). You don’t actually have to do anything extra to get this reward. So long as you complete other daily tasks, you’ll get enough AP to unlock the Adena and maybe even the 30 Red Diamonds.
Clan bonuses are even more significant. If you’re part of a fairly active clan (or the Clan Academy for newbie players), you can get 1,000 to 30,000 Adena just by clicking the check-in button on the main clan screen. You get more currency based on how many players checked in the previous day, so an active clan means a constant daily 30,000.
Don’t forget about weekly clan achievements, either. These are very large quests that require the participation of most members to complete, but that offer significant rewards on a weekly basis. Up to 180,000 Adena per week can be gathered by taking part in clan achievements.
Farming field mobs during your other daily tasks will usually grant you a heft amount of quest scrolls, which come in grades C through S. While it isn’t worth fulfilling any scroll quest under grade A, you can bind 5 lower grade scrolls into 1 higher quality scroll to utilize everything you loot. Your aim is to farm and complete 20 of these quests per day, which will fetch you between 100,000 and 600,000 Adena.
Scrolls grant more Adena based on their grade, but also depending on your level. For instance, an A grade scroll quest will reward you with 7,700 Adena at level 30, but 29,000 Adena at level 230. You can also buy these scrolls with Adena in the normal shop, but the deal is obviously not worth it unless you’re at least level 50.
Yes, all of the tasks above take a bit of work to complete, but they can help you save between 350,000 Adena (for levels smaller than 120) to 600,000 Adena (for levels between 120 and 180) and more than 1,000,000 Adena (for levels higher than 260) each day. Even in a game like Lineage 2: Revolution, where there’s always some way to waste money right around the corner, that’s a pretty sum. Otherwise, if you’re already swimming in currency and are not sure what to do with it to maximize your character’s potential, consider our BlueStacks guide to gear improvement and the Forge.
