First login to the game
When you’ve chosen a server and created your character, you log in to the game. Human, Elf, Dark Elf, Orc, Dwarf and Kamael characters appear in the Museum of the Talking Island Village, Ertheia characters appear in the Faeron Village. You can find the info about the game interface in Interface section. You can also study the Tutorial Guide which can be found in your character’s inventory (Alt+V).
How to define your location
The world of Lineage II is vast. Players can quickly move to different parts of the world using different devices and NPCs. You don’t need to worry that you wouldn’t be able to find teleporting devices, you’ll learn about them in the game process. However, you do need to learn how to use the map to define your location. It’s pretty easy to open the map and to use it. Press Open Map button in right down corner of the screen or use Alt+M hotkey (M key with Chat with Enter function enabled). On the map you’ll see the markers which define your character’s location, the direction where it moves and quest markers as well. You can turn on/off quest markers in the quest log (Alt+U).
There are new quests which help new players develop their characters. By completing them you'll get the basic battle skills. The game has the following quest interface.
