In commemoration of the Hellbound update, eligible players will have the opportunity to swap their main class with one of their subclasses. Change your main class to one of your subclasses and enjoy playing Lineage II with a character that you love even more!
Participation & Duration Information
Those who wish to participate in the event can do so by submitting a request through the homepage. The requests made before each weekly scheduled maintenance will take effect at the following weekly scheduled maintenance.
Eligibility & Requirements
- Each character can swap his or her main class only once; however, the request can be canceled before it goes into effect, and resubmitted again.
- If you first request an account service (character gender change, character name change, or server transfer), you cannot request the main class change. Please resubmit your request on the following week after the account service goes into effect.
- Once you change a character's class, the change is final and cannot be reversed. Please submit your request carefully.
Eligible Character Levels
In order to participate in this event, your desired character's main class must be between levels 75 and 80, and the subclass level must be 75 or above.
- Characters whose main class is a Warsmith, Maestro, Overlord, or Dominator are not eligible for this event.
- If you have both Elf and Dark Elf classes as your subclasses, you cannot request one of them to be your main class since both of them can't have the opposing race's class as a subclass.
Kamael Class Limitations
The Kamael race's Inspector and Judicator are subclass-only by design, so they cannot be changed into a main class. The Kamael have unique occupations that are directly tied to the character's gender, so when you change a Kamael character's class, the gender also changes automatically. For example: If your Kamael character is female and you choose to change your main class to a Berserker, your character's gender will change to male.
Hero Status Restrictions
A Hero character can submit the class-change request only after the Hero period has ended.
At the time of the class change implementation, if your character is carrying more than 80 items in its inventory, the change will fail. Please check your inventory before the regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure that your character is carrying no more than 80 items.
- A character on the Public Test Server cannot participate in this event.
- You cannot participate in this event if your account or character has been banned.
- After you submit the class-change request, if your account is banned, the change will not take effect.
Q: What's the purpose for having a main class/subclass change event?
A: The Hellbound update introduced a subclass level cap of 80, and a main class level cap of 85. This led to great disappointment among those players who had a greater attachment to their subclass and focused their efforts on developing that subclass. That's why we prepared this main class/subclass change event.
Q: What happens to a character's race/face/gender when the main class and the subclass are changed?
A: When the main and subclass are changed, the character's appearance follows the appearance of the main class. The gender remains the same. (All head styles are type A.) For example, for a female Elf character whose main class is Elder and subclass is Hawkeye, if you request the Hawkeye to become your main class, the main class changes into Hawkeye, the subclass changes into Elder, and the character's appearance changes into a human female character. This works a little differently for the Kamael since their classes are gender-specific. For Kamael, at the time of main/subclass change, the gender also changes into that of the main class.
Q: After changing my main class/subclass, can I revert back to my original state?
A: This offer is limited to one time only per character and you will not be able to revert back to your original state. Please remember this and make your decision very carefully. (You can cancel the request before it goes into effect.)
Q: After changing my main class/subclass, what happens to the subclass certified skills and certificates that I acquired?
A: When you change your main class/subclass, all previously acquired subclass certified skills are reset, and previously acquired certificates are removed. In addition, subclass certificates that were acquired during the certificate exchange event are also removed. You must reacquire the subclass certificates again after the main class/subclass change.
Q: Can I change my second and third sub-class into the main class as well?
A: A request is possible if the main class is between levels 75-80 and the subclass is above level 75, be it the first, second, or third subclass. In this case, the main class changes into the requested second or third sub-class.
Q: Can I participate in the event if my main class is a Warsmith, Maestro, Overlord, or Dominator?
A: Warsmith, Maestro, Overlord, and Dominator are, by design, classes that cannot be subclasses. As such, they cannot be changed into a subclass. If your character's main class is any of these classes, the request cannot be made.
Q: Can the Kamael's hidden subclasses Inspector and Judicator be changed into a character's main class?
A: Inspector and Judicator are designed to be subclasses only, so they cannot be changed into a character's main class.
Q: My main class is Human, my first subclass is Elven, and my second subclass is Dark Elven. In this case, is a request permitted?
A: Within the game, an Elf cannot have a Dark Elf subclass, and a Dark Elf cannot have an Elf subclass. If you have two or more subclasses, and if the one you wish to change into the main class is an Elf or a Dark Elf, the request cannot be made when an opposite race exists in the subclass. In the above example, if a third subclass is a Bounty Hunter, you can request it to become the main class. If one of the opposing race subclasses is deleted, it is possible to choose the remaining subclass as your main class.
Q: What happens to my Olympiad points?
A: Since your main class is changed, your Olympiad points are also reset. Please use up your Olympiad points before submitting the request.
Q: I submitted my request properly but the change hasn't occurred. What could be the reason?
A: If the request was submitted properly but the change didn't take place, this means that the requirements were met at the time of the request but not at the time of effect. Please see the following conditions, double check your character's condition, and submit your request again.
- The main class and subclass must be between levels 75-80, and you must not be in hero or hero waiting status.
- The character must have 80 or less items in the inventory. If you can hold more than 80 items, you must make sure that you have no more than 80 items in your inventory at the time of the class-change request.
- The accounts must not be banned.
Q: Before making the request, I made an account service request. Can I still participate in the event?
A: During a regularly scheduled maintenance, the account service and this main class/subclass change event effect occurs at the same time, so if both requests were permitted, the main class/subclass change would not properly take effect. An account that is already scheduled for an account service cannot submit a class-change event request until the corresponding week. Please keep this in mind, and after the account service takes effect, you may participate in event the following week.
Q: I am working on the quest "Repent Your Sins." Can I continue the quest after changing my main class/subclass?
A: The "Repent Your Sins" quest does not apply to both the main class and subclasses. If you change your main class/subclass, all the items related to the "Repent Your Sins" quest are removed, and you must start the quest over.
The Choose Your Destiny event will be coming in summer 2008. We will announce more details, including exact dates and times, at a later time.
Sounds like a great opportunity!
