Lineage II Adds New Vanguard Class & More Updates

NCSOFT released a new set of updates this week into Lineage II as we got some new improvements and additions to the game. The biggest addition is the brand new Vanguard class, which will give you plenty to do as you have new areas to explore with character advancement, but it is exclusive to the Orc race. The class will give you the chance to ride into battle with heavy armor wielding a spear while mounting a fearsome beast. To celebrate the new class, you can snag a special Vanguard Support Kit and Vanguard Ring for free, each of them providing useful items and stats. However, you can only get them between April 6th to May 5th, 2022. We have more info about it below as well as more about other updates to the title.
