With Lineage II: The 2nd Throne - Gracia Part 2 a new arena was introduced, called Kratei's Cube.
The characters level 70+ can enroll via Kratei's Cube Entrance Manager.
There are three types of level ranges in Kratei's Cube. Each arena is meant for 25 characters at the same time. The levels are as follows:
You can not be in a chaotic stage, red or holding a cursed weapon; you cannot be a member of any party.
The rules of Kratei's Cube
- The Kratei's Cube event starts every half-hour and full-hour. They last for 20 minutes.
- Once you've enrolled (via the Manager), you'll be teleported to the waiting room 3 minutes before the event starts.
- You can earn Kill Points in PvP and PvE in Kratei's Cube. Even if your character dies, you won't get any penalties.
- If your character is killed, it'll be teleported to the waiting room. You can enter the Cube once again via Kratei's Cube Match Manager.
- You must have registered 3 minutes before the event starts.
