Getting Around - The Money Saving Way
Teleporting around Lineage II by means of the gatekeepers can be quite costly.
These seemingly innocent Gatekeepers invite you to take a load off your back and transport you to any zone. Little do you know, that these geographical rides will take a large toll on your wallet! To avoid burning that hole in your pocket, follow these easy instructions to save a little adena. Although it may take a little longer than instantaneous teleporting, it will help you in the long run.
Newbie Travel Tokens do not exist in this server! Normally at this point I would say the best way to get off Talking Island would be to Newbie Guide - Teleport to Elven Village - Teleport Neutral Zone - Walk south then Scroll of Escape. Not going to happen though, you are either taking the boat or asking for Breath of Eva, swim then SOE when in range of Gludin!
Running and Using Scrolls of Escapes
A good way to save adena by not teleporting is by running! This however can take a really really long time. To efficiently run from one area to the next in a good manner of time, you will need to invest in Scroll of Escapes (Soe). Soe’s will cost you around 440 - 480 adena depending on area and tax. How will know when to soe? There is nothing worse than running half way from city to city and using a Scroll of Escape only to realize you have not passed the threshold of your previous town, thus returning you right back to the start. Have no fear! There is a sure-fire way to gauge how far you’ve gotten and whether or not you need to keep running.
Running from Neutral Zone to Gludio
After running or teleporting to neutral zone (depending on how stingy you want to be) type the command “/loc” to find your current location. Opening your map also shows a Current position in the left hand corner, but it is sometimes not very detailed as to which town you will end up in.
Teleporting with Intermediates
Another way to save adena on teleports is by using intermediates, meaning instead of teleporting from Gludio to Aden, you can save a lot of adena by first porting Gludio → Dion → Giran → Aden.
Example: The teleport prices at the time I checked were
Gludio → Aden (28,000 adena)
But if you ported with intermediates it would have costed you Gludio → Dion (1700)→ Giran (3400) → Aden (6500). Costing a total of 11,600 adena, still saving you 16,400 adena had you just ported from Gludio to Aden
Keep in mind that prices of teleports change depending on the time of day in Interlude, move about at night when its cheaper!
By following these simple easy ways of getting around, you can save that much needed adena when you are first starting out in Lineage II. Hopefully you will have enough adena or time and patience when it comes to completing your class quests!
It always pay's to be smart and savvy!!!!
