That video is from March and seems to be from a private server. It shows not Primeval Isle but a "Forgotten Island"/잊혀진 섬 (check the radar map in the upper right corner) that does not exist in the official version. You will find all hunting grounds at the bottom of this page:

On May 24 there will be a new update called "Antharas", where the Epic Dragon (both open to the public and instanced) and an instanced Baium are introduced as well as Catacombs and Necropoli:

The Sin Eater quest for reducing your PK count will also be added:

There is a nice computer-generated video:

The Forgotten Island is actually not a bad idea. In the Classic version of the Varka/Ketra you are not tied to a faction but can merrily kill both, i.e. this works also on low population servers where there are fewer clans - which would have to specialize on either Ketra Orcs or Varka Silenos - and people often make on-the-spot parties.

As far as the Boss Instances are concerned, there is so far not more information. When you click on "Instance & Dungeon" on the preview page, a pop-up message appears which says that the details will be revealed on May 24, i.e. next Wednesday.

Aram pointed me to an Inven article about NCsoft's new mobile game Lineage M:
http://www.inven.co.kr/webzine/news/?news=177830

Apart from some basic game design aspects, like making an enchantment of +1 really special, I was quite surprised to see that in Lineage 1 there is also a Forgotten Island/잊혀진 섬:
http://lineage.power.plaync.com/wiki/%E ... +%EC%84%AC
In the Lineage 1 version this is a place where players from several servers can meet, like a Dimensional Siege, just for field hunting and self-created PvP. It will be interesting to see whether the Lineage 2 Classic version will be expanded in that direction in the future.

Today the update went live. For both instances, Antharas and Baium, you need 45~300 players of lvl 70~84, you can enter both instances once per week, the instance is reset every Wednesday at 06:30:

instanced antharas/baium i guess they drop less items. but what about the earring is it the same? or does it have less chances to be dropped?

The instanced Antharas (like Baium) doesn't drop anything. Instead Support Troop Commander Lash appears when you have reduced Antharas' HP so far that she escapes and gives everybody who talks to her 1 or 3 Exp Scrolls (depending on the character's level) and 1 Reward Box, from which you will get with 100% probability a Damaged Antharas Earring, which is a mere souvenir, without even M.Def., and with a certain probability some other items:

The Damaged Antharas Earring can then be overenchanted to +10, from +4 on with ever more increasing Boss Jewel effects:
http://lineage2classic.power.plaync.com ... 5%ED%84%B0

When you have it at +10, you can exchange it at Lash for a real Antharas Earring. For overenchanting you don't use regular scrolls but the Baltus Knights' Grinding Powder (up to +3 100% success, then random destruction). One bag of Grinding Powder, which can be bought from Lash, is 500,000 adena:

Image


From Lash's Reward Box you can get, with a low probability, Shining Grinding Powder or Brilliant Grinding Powder which are something like the High Five Destruction Scrolls and allow safe enchanting up to +8 resp. +9:
