Like in most other MMORPG, levelling your character provides permanent passive bonuses to your character stats. Every new level you earn provides bonus to P.Def, M.Def, Max HP and Max MP. You also earn some amount of skillpoints (appropriate to your level), Mastery point and mastery. Maximum character level cap is currently set to 120lvl. You need large amount of experience to reach maximum level. See details experience progression table.

Meow, it takes long time until you reach maximum level capacity. You must be a hard-working adventurer if you want to achieve it. Maybe you should see this first.


Items are the most effective way to increase your character strength. Items always grant various passive bonuses. Items are the most important for your character, because bonuses from items are much higher than bonuses from other sources.
More about items and their improvement can be found in Itemization. Specific items with values can also be found in our Database.


Runes can permanently increase your character’s stats through Rune Imprinting Process. For imprinting of a specific rune you need desired amount of Rune Stones and Adena depending on rune level and rune page. When you are imprinting runes there is probability of success. Higher level runes have smaller probability. If you fail you lose desired amount of Rune Stones and Adena, but you do not lose your current rune level. New Rune page unlocks after you imprint all runes from previous page to level 1. There is also character level restriction to each rune page.


Elixirs are crafted from herbs and elixir essences that can simply be collected from Extraction Dungeon or obtained through Daily Activities, Quest Completion or Special Events. Once you have enough of certain herbs and essences, you can craft an elixir of desired color. Created elixir is automatically used by your character and it grants permanent bonus to your stats. There are 4 types of elixirs, each of different color, each granting different permanent bonuses described in the table below.

Grade Upgrades to next grade Max HP Max MP Attack increase Defense increase
C 40 +9 +9 +6 +8
B 60 +21 +21 +15 +19
A 80 +33 +33 +25 +30
S 100 +50 +50 +40 +45

Monster Codex

Monster codex can be created from a certain number of Monster Cores. Players can acquire Monster Cores by hunting different monsters in regions and occasionally as reward from Summon Boxes. Completing Monster Codex provides a permanent bonus to character stats according to certain Codex (Each Codex provides a different bonus). Each Monster Codex has 10 levels and each level require specific number of Monster Cores.

Each Codex requires specific Cores which drop from specific Bosses of monsters, but not all monsters drop cores. Monster cores can only be obtain from Field Bosses, Clan Bosses, Mini-Bosses and normal monsters with appearance similar to Mini-Bosses. Complete list can be found here.

As you are completing Monster Codexes, you reach milestones for certain regions that grant you summoning stone fragments as a reward. Summoning Stone can be created from fragments and open a portal to a special location with plenty of Core-type monsters according to your pick. The location is available for 30 minutes and monsters spawn during this time or until they are all defeated. There are 5 grades of a Boss Monster: C, B, A, S and R:

Grade Respawn Spawn Locations Name Color
C 5 minute Open world locations White
B 10 minute Open world locations Blue
A 30 minute Elite Dungeons Green
S At fixed time – Every 4 hours Open world locations Cyan
R At fixed time – Once per week Clan Dungeons Purple

Note 1: Monster Core is a standard item that is needed in order to create Monster Codex that grants permanent bonuses. Item itself doesn’t provide any bonuses and needs to be registered into codex.
Note 2: Monster Codex provides permanent bonus stats against all enemies, not only against codex type monsters.


Basic use of pets in Lineage 2 Revolution is to speed travel around the World of Aden. They become available at level 50 and require completing quest series in Wasteland. After completion you will be rewarded with your first pet Black Bear. After that additional pets can be obtained from Summoning Stone Dungeon. Pets can be mounted while out of combat, allowing you to travel across the map faster. If you are attacked you are immediately dismounted.

Each pet has different basic stats and grants different bonus to movement speed when mounted. Pets can be upgraded to higher grades that grant additional bonuses to their stats. Pets can also be equipped with special pet equipment that has the same behaviour as character equipment (Grades, Upgrades, Levelling Up).

Pets stats are automatically added to your main character’s overall stats and even when you are dismounted. Mounting and Dismounting your pet only affects your movement speed. You can only have one active pet. Only an active pet can be Mounted or Dismounted and it is available from the main screen. Only active pets grant 100% passive bonuses to your character. On the other hand inactive pets also grant 30% additional bonus.
