I also celebrate my birthday by setting my friends on fire, just like NCSoft is planning for Lineage 2.
Lineage 2 is turning 9. What better way to celebrate than to throw an epic dragon at players? If this isn't enough, NCSoft has also given players 34 new classes in addition to a smattering of new weapons, armor, and character customizations. With an additional 3 new zones to explore, players will have some work to do before engaging Lindvior, the Wind Dragon who has been sent to shatter the barrier protecting Aden from Shilen's wrath. Lindvior; Goddess of Destruction is free to all players and will be active today, May 29th.
Shilen, the mother of dragons in Lineage 2, is the ruler of the underworld. When the world was young, Shilen was part of a plot that ended with her being disowned and cast out of her role as the goddess of water. She fled and gave birth to dragons, cursing her parents, the gods, as she went through labor. Once she gathered the strength of the dragons, Shilen set about trying to kill all of the gods. Years of battle went by and eventually, the Dragons were all but destroyed. Shilen then created the underworld to rule over.
With the release of Lindvior: Goddess of Destruction, Lineage 2 development director Gon Namkung has said, "This is by far the most intricate challenge that players have ever faced in Lineage 2 throughout its long and storied history. The entire Lineage 2 development team is proud of this achievement and we are confident only the best players will defeat Lindvior." It will be interesting to see the videos of this fight emerge!
