Character Creation

Creating your character is a fun and meaningful experience. In the character selection screen, click Create to begin creating your character.


Name Your Character

Enter the name you want to give your character. Names may be up to 16 alphanumeric characters in length. You may not use the name of any NPC, monster, or item that appears in the game. Names must not be shared by multiple characters on the same server and must not violate the Lineage II User Agreement.

Select Race and Class

Select the race of your character. In Lineage II, you can play six different races: Human, Elf, Dark Elf, Orc, Dwarf, and Kamael.

After selecting a race, select your base class type: fighter or mystic. Some races can only be fighters. The class type you choose will determine the classes your character can become later. You can view the class evolution of each race and class type by clicking Class Path.

When your character reaches level 85, your character will Awaken into a new class that is determined by the race and class type you choose at character creation. For more detailed information about races and classes, see the Races and Classes pages.

Select Gender and Appearance

After selecting a class and race, choose your character's gender and appearance. Gender is important for Kamaels: female Kamaels become different classes than male Kamaels. See the Class Path diagrams for more information. No other races have gender specifications. You can customize your character's appearance with options such as face style, hair style, and hair color.
