DescriptionIn this online RPG of Korean origin, the player can explore the medieval world of Lineage as one of the four available character classes: elf, knight, prince, or wizard. Knights are physical fighters, wizards are proficient in magic, while playing as an elf or a prince require a combination of both. After you create a character, your main goal in the game will be to gain enough experience and to join one of the existent blood pledges, which are equivalent to guilds in other games. As a prince, you can also create your own blood pledge.
The combat in the game is action-based, and the world is viewed from an isometric perspective, similar to Ultima Online. A large part of the game is dedicated to item hunting. By finding and combining different items (mostly dropped by defeated enemies) you can create your own weapons and armor. You can also tame animals you encounter in the wilderness. When tamed, those animals will help you in combat.
