Use "Auto hotkey", AHK for short, to re-pogram your mouse/keyboard keys, i.e changing your keys so that ALT has the effect of CTRL and vice versa, any combination you can think of.
Can also be used to make macros if you do not own a keyboard/mouse with macro buttons, i.e holding down CTRL key to make PvPing easier.
Use your head and do not make a macro that is against the rules.

AHK is infamous for getting people banned in various MMOs (with refusal to unban), even in those cases where the MMO GMs themselves repeatedly state that using AHK is fine, or AHK is fine as long as 1 input is one action.
The key thing when using AHK is not only to limit one input to one action, as Znippo suggested, it is to additinally limit THE AMOUNT of macros you use at a time. People who use AHK tend to setup more and more convenient keyboard shortcuts (even if one shortcut = one action), which seems to be where GMs draw the line. Doesn't matter that you submit your ban appeal in less than 5 minutes after you are banned (namely, you were not AFK).

Dang! you are making me feel guilty now. Sorry, I should've returned my purchase and done the right thing. I guess I am not so perfect after all.

I remember buying a +6 blessed Twilight set from a newbie. I told the guy to COD me the set using the mail system. The guy didn't COD me for quite sometime and didn't respond. So, I kept messaging him and finally I got the set via Mail but it WASN'T COD(cash on delivery)! It was regular mail! LOL
Immediately, I knew he was a newbie who didn't know about the new mailing system, so I just mailed him the Adena with the explanation on how to do COD.

To make you feel better, with so much buy and sell, I get scammed sometimes too, mostly negligence on my part...I just gotta take my time.

Being able to use skills such as Phoenix arrow, Poison zone & shadow snare in the same spot all the time, without having to drag your mouse there....
Choose the location where you want to aim, simply use the skill normally at that spot.
Make a macro, with nothing but the skill in it.
Now when you click that macro, you will use the skill automatically in that spot, re-select the spot by changing location with skill manually again.

You may only hit flagged people with AOE skills, for example if someone uses hide/fake death while having a *white name do not waste your time trying to AOE them, it wont work.
Flash skill from Yul will also not trigger if your enemy has a WHITE name, as this is an AOE skill aswell.
*Battleground effect is different.
Using AOE attacks on NPCs (including traps from yul) will never hit an enemy player wether he is flagged or not, so dont waste your time trying to break someones hide, or hitting them while being untargetted by doing that.


Use your tank (or strong healer) to break hide of enemys by AOEing them, also works good to damage while they are untargetable (i.e disparition), just dont hurt your friends too much.


Position your back against a wall quickly by running up to the wall, change your camera angle (in the position of which you want to turn) and click the "BACK" arrow key,
This will make your character turn to the location you're looking at while staying at the same location (the wall), avoid those annoying backstabbing othells.
Also saves you looking like a fool when you hold LEFT or RIGHT arrow key to turn your character manually


Fighting Sayha Seer?
Take notice of their hide skill, the one with an actual animation teleports them ~600 range to the back, quickly AOE/Flare that location to break their hide.


Use "Auto hotkey", AHK for short, to re-pogram your mouse/keyboard keys, i.e changing your keys so that ALT has the effect of CTRL and vice versa, any combination you can think of.
Can also be used to make macros if you do not own a keyboard/mouse with macro buttons, i.e holding down CTRL key to make PvPing easier.
Use your head and do not make a macro that is against the rules.
Reference point: http://boards.lineage2.com/showthread.php?t=217291


Adena?
Farm zaken & freya on alt chars, sell drops in either AH or NPC.
Farm Ceremony of Chaos AFK with as many chars as you can, each match is worth a few hundred thousand adena and requires no work.
Make your alts noblesse, and farm olympiad with them for the 10 match participation fee,
Simply do 10 matches, at the 1st day of next month you can calculate your points at olympiad NPC to get some free Marks of Battle, save those until you can buy the giant codex.
Dont forget to do the olympiad quest for free giants energy (2x giants energy per 10 matches, is a daily quest so you can finish this one on both Friday & Saturday for 4x GE (22m adena) for little to no work.


Key locations for lvling up fast/easily to 99 if you do not have someone to Powerlevel you;
85> 88~90: Harnak
88~90> 95 (Depending on gear/class): Fairy Settlement, more specific this spot; https://i.imgur.com/lTWc4YN.jpg break the Cocoons by hitting them with skills/normal attacks by holding CTRL, AOE away.
95> 99: *Nornils cave (aka Boz Core), near kamael village
*Alternatively Hellbound if you can handle the monsters near beleths magic circle.


PvPing in Parnassus or similar? turn your graphics up.
The effects of talismans (longing etc) will activate once people leave their hide skills or login, this effect is visible through walls so you will be able to spot if someone is going out of hide.

Farming specific CC bosses (wealthy, armed etc)?
Simply PR and re-enter the instance if it is the wrong raid, the instance will reset and you can re-enter and try your luck again.

Trying to farm a specific raid (Michaela? Kechi? Veridan?) but unsure if you should make party?
Just enter the house in parnassus, take the quest from him, the NPC wil automatically give you the quest to the specific instancezone which is active at that moment.
Steam Corridor = Kechi
Emerald Square = Veridan
Coral Garden = Michaela
Simply abandon the quest if it is the wrong instancezone, and try again in an hour or two.


Yul;
Flash only works within low range of enemy/mobs, if you use it far away it has no effect.
If PvPing someone, rather than using it when near your enemy use it near a monster before your enemy has a chance to come close.
Flash will not work if your enemy has a WHITE name.

Yul/Feoh, using a keyboard with macro functions?
Program a macro to hold down "back" arrow key for half a second to reposition you, while also clicking the F button for "Quick evasion" or ""Magical Evasion" to teleport yourself to the front rather than the back.
Same thing can be used for Sayha seer hide skill.
Or simply use your mouse to reposition yourself, whatever you're more comfortable with.
Is not against the rules as seen here;
http://boards.lineage2.com/showthread.php?t=217291

Othell;
While fake death, while standing up open a buy/sell/workshop window to be able to move your character instantly.
Normally the skill has a 1-2 second delay before being able to move.

Othell/Tyrr;
Use your skills to your advantage when running towards/away from someone, jump on monsters with your skills (Slow jump, shadow chase etc) to reach target point faster.
When you mention that the Chaos Ceremony would be good for Adena, would that be the reason?

Win a few Mark of Battle and then trade for something valuable? But that's so little.

Indeed, like I said use your head if you use this, otherwise you will get banned.
It is against the rules to use third party software to play the game, this included.
Even if you use it to make a simple macro, that can also easily be made in game by repeating a macro, it is against the rules.

Would be against the rules.
It is technically a 3rd party software and using it the way you describe would result in a ban sooner or later.
Use this software to remap your hotbar, or make simple macros (i.e spam F10 for potions, click F1F2F3 in a single button click etc).

Yes, HP potions, jewelry or belts, giant codexes etc..
Its free adena & require no effort, you get 4x mark of battle per round.
you can buy potions right away (2 marks each) & they sell for ~250k each on our dead server (Freya), thats 8m per char/day if you register each match on COC.
Not going to make you rich, but pays for your SS / supplies for that day no doubt

Hello,
Great thread!

Few trivial tips from me also:

1. Shift + skill / click makes u stay in the same position (macro /useskillstand + name of skill). Usefull for Healers / Range DDs so they do not auto move when out of range.
2. /target %servitor1 (or 2) a very useful macro for wynns that allows u to make cool combos with Replace skills.
3. Alt + click + move on party window rearrange the order of party members.
4./target %party1 (or 2,3,...) can simplify ur gameplay. If u play iss for example u can put heal on 1st or last party slot and create a macro and use angel w/o ever targeting heal from pt window....
5. Towns with light castle have lower taxes. So u can buy groceries (soul / spirit stones) cheaper and u can sell ur elc/key mats or w/e at better price. If no light castle around go HB grocery and fight the powah!
6. Gemstones R (S and A as well) are sold by Merchant of Mammon. Check the price and don't let any1 fool ya
7. Macro ur skills to avoid annoying repeated text. Create a macro /useskill SkillX and get rid of useless System Message cooldown.

8. Class change on full inventory. If u want to switch between main / dual and ur inventory is kinda full and u are already out of town in a random pt, so u cant mail, do the following:
-Trade a party member
-Move as many items as u want in exchange window
-DO NOT CONFIRM! *(unless I am in the other side of the window)
-Use Class Change while exchange window is open and ur items are in there.
-Cancel the trade and u are rdy to go!

Enchantment of weapons up to +7 (R grade and higher on PHYSICAL weapons, not mage) has around 50-60% success rate. Starting +7 and up has about 25-35% chance of success. This probability estimate is purely based on my experience and should be pretty darn accurate. No LUC pops were accounted for this estimate.

If you got a weapon with an SA you don't like, you can switch the SA at the blacksmith again and it will only cost you 136 Gemstone R + the crystal replacement, that way if you see a very nice weapon that has the wrong SA's for a low price, just get it and fix the SA's yourself. The only other cost involved would be that of the crystal replacement and the Gemstone R. Any 2 SA weapon is worth doing the with as the original owner already took the punch of putting the 2nd SA in.

This is also helpful if you have an SA lvl 5 and somehow you get your hands on a nicer crystal.
