 (Special thanks to Hassassin for this awesome guide). 


Quote:5. How do I successfully install everything?

  1. Download the client and extract it to your preferred location. 
  2. Download our updater and extract it to the Lineage 2 directory
  3. Run the updater as administrator
  4. If for some reason nothing happens, click the button "full check" on the updater. 

Quote:6. Updater keeps failing / updater says failed after 99% of patching. 


Make sure you run the updater as administrator and the directory where you placed the game files and the updater has the write/ delete permissions


Quote:7. I am still having issues. Some errors showing up. What to do?

Note, that we have 0 tolerance for bots and other abusive software and we strongly recommend you to be friendly to the community you are about to meet in your adventures. 


Quote:9. I would like to run the game in a borderless mode. I also find camera cancel on right-click annoying. What can I do?


Feel free to visit this thread:

 and download the files that will modify the game behaviour to your liking!


Quote:10. I don't like the default system message colors on your server. Is there any easy way to change it?

Please visit: 
You are not allowed to view links.Register or Login to view.


Quote:12. I have a lot of IPs at my disposal. Does it mean I can multibox?


No, multi-boxing policy means 1main + 1 box + 3 offline shops simultaneously per person


Quote:13. I have reached lv 20 / 40. Do I have to do the change class quest?


Up to you. If you wish you can do the quest which probably involves amazing adventures chasing Master Toma. However, you can also buy quest marks for adena or quest coins

You need to go to the Fantasy Island. Fantasy Island can be reached from any bigger city such as Gludio or Giran using the Gatekeeper (the very last bottom option):

Once on the Fantasy Island find:


The 1st Class Change NPC (behind the Fantasy Island gatekeeper, on the street):

The 2nd Class Change NPC (on the same street a bit further away):

Prices:

First Class Change: You need 1 and the price is 100k Adena OR x 1 Quest Coin (Obtained with a donation).
Second Class Change: You need 3 and the price is 700k Adena for each OR x 3 Quest Coins (Obtained with a donation).


Quote:14. Second Class change is too expensive for me. What should I do? :/


There are a lot of clans that will be happy to invite you to their academy and help you get the adena for the class change! In return, they will receive Clan Reputation Points. Win - Win. If you like the clan, you will most likely even be able to stay and embark on L2 adventures with your new friends!


Quote:15. Hey, I participated in some event and won something called an Event Coin.. What can I do with it?


Event Coins on L2Dawn can be exchanged into cosmetic hats. You can find an NPC that will exchange your coin to a hat of your choice on the Fantasy Island:

Quote:16. Can I receive live support and help from the team?


Yes, though the server is based on EU GMT + 1 hours you can often find a GM in-game or on forums to help you out. GMs are: ChinaTown, DrPen, Pinng, Contamination, SKARR


The guide will be constantly updated

Wait wait wait, you have re-enabled donations for the first and second quests?

If so, about time! Keep that money rolling in to perfect Dawn!

Not yet, but we will bring name changes/ quest coins and some other non-game breaking or interfering things so we can afford to expand our infrastructure and optimize the performance of the server.

When I first came to Dawn, I did download your copy of the client, and discovered it was infact not the Interlude installer, but just a post-install copy of the client..Me and my OCD just couldn't accept that.

So for anyone else whom might prefer to use a legit client installer for a fresh install of the game, I got my copy from

, and quite quickly too.

Yes, I know, technically you can run the game off of a copy of post-installed game files, just like any other original Unreal Engine based game, but while many others seem to be having problems with various crashes and updater problems, I've been sitting pretty my whole time here with no issues at all. :angel:  Maybe my freshly installed game files might have something to do with that. Big Grin

*Note: You still need to be using L2Dawn's own updater though, folks..There's no getting away from that!*
