The main activity in Lineage 2 is battle with monsters and other players.
Choosing a target
Mobs dwell in fields and dungeons. You need to find the mobs whose level range corresponds to yours. You can find the info about your target by left-clicking it. First of all, define the approximate level of the mob by the colour of its name in the target window, then read its characteristics. Left-click the target once again or use a skill to start a battle.
There are aggressive mobs who attack your character once it’s become visible to them, and not aggressive who don’t attack first. However, such not aggressive mobs have so called sociality – they attack a character if it attacks their comrades. You cannot determine whether a mob is aggressive or social by its looks. So you need to be careful when you explore new hunting zones.

Start of a battle
Once you've chosen your target and started attacking using your weapon or a skill, you need to defeat the monster using skills and items. If during the battle your character's HP starts decreasing, use HP potions or skills to restore it. Keep a close eye on your XP and MP; otherwise your character may die.
End of a battle
The battle is over then you kill the mob. For killing the mob your character will receive XP and SP, there's also a chance to get Adena and items. If a character level 10+ dies in a battle with a mob, the character loses XP. The character who died in a battle can be either resurrected with items or skills; or get resurrected in a township of a clan hall.
Weapon and types of attacks
|Weapon for short-range attacks||Weapon for long-range attacks|
|Weapon except bows and crossbows can be used for short-range attacks. P.Atk. is the parameter responsible for damage in short-range battles. P. Def. is the parameter responsible for defence against short-range attacks (physical). Soulshots are used to increase Phys. Atk.||Bows and Crossbows are used for long-range attacks. Each shot from a bow consumes your character’s MP. Bows have low attack speed, make big damage and attack range is impressive. Crossbows have high attack speed, make average damage, and their attack range is the same as for bows.|
|Physical skills||Magic skills|
You can start a short-range battle with any opponent using any weapon except bows. A short-range battle will be easier for your character if it has high stats of P. Def. and P. Evasion.
