Lineage 2 Classic Spoil Guide - How To Get The Most Valuable Mats?
Lineage 2 Classic Spoiler Guide
Lineage 2 Classic is truly an old-school MMORPG. It’s definitely a lot of grind and slow progression, with advanced, player-driven economy. In L2 Classic, Dwarves are entirely focused on money-making. When all the other races can advance into multiple classes that can excel in combat, or offer support their allies, Dwarves only have access to two development paths. One of them is focused on crafting items, the other on collecting additional materials and recipes. Spoiler is the latter.
Funnily enough, they could be viewed as a gathering class in a way. Just instead of picking up herbs or mining ores, they can harvest additional items from corpses of the killed monsters. Moreover, Lineage 2 doesn’t have a profession system, so you have to level a separate character to get access to spoiling.
Spoiler Class Progression
To play a spoiler, you’re going to have to create a Dwarf Fighter (that shouldn’t be hard, since there are no Dwarf Mystics – this race only has fighters). Then at level 20 you have to choose the Scavenger as your class. Later progress is linear: at level 40 you advance into Bounty Hunter and at level 76 into Fortune Seeker.
The Basics of Spoiling
As we already mentioned, spoiling allows players to get additional items for killing monsters. Farming in old-school MMORPGs is focused around min-maxing – spending your time as efficiently as possible. Having a spoiler in your party lets you access resources that cannot be unlocked in any other way. That’s what makes a Bounty Hunter a worthy addition to almost every party.
While this class can’t really role play as a tank (they have decent defensive stats, but lack a taunt ability) and their DPS is not great, they do bring some damage and crowd control. Of course it’s just some extra value, because getting more loot is enough to justify their presence in a party.
Thanks to your two class-defining abilities (Spoil and Sweeper), you will gather resources from dead monsters which are necessary to craft particular elements of gear. It is very important to remember that each mob have different drop and spoil chance, so you will need knowledge about locations and names of mobs from which you will be able to spoil the most valuable and necessary mats. In order to make your spoilers do their job more spoil efficiently you will need to focus on the following factors:
- recipes info
- mobs location
Spoiling for beginners
a) Main skills
In order start spoiling I will talk about Bounty Hunter and his main skills which basically allow us to spoil mobs.
Spoil - your main ability responsible for spoiling. By using the ability, you inflict magic effect on mobs which allows you to sweep mats from them. After successful spoil, you will hear a specific sound that will inform you that mob is spoiled. Also, the chat will inform you about that.
Spoil Festival - a skill which is mainly needed used in a party when AoE farming. Thanks to this ability, you will be able to spoil all nearby targets with one click.
Sweeper - an ability which is responsible for picking up items from spoiled mobs. You activate it straight after you kill a particular monster. If the target is highlighted in blue, you can be sure that your spoil was successful.
Hammer Crush - an offensive type of ability which inflicts nice melee damage to the enemies. It will be useful when the targeted mob is on low hp. Remember to try overhitting mobs with such ability to gain additional experience.
Fake Death - a defensive skill which will be important when you agro too many mobs or when your health drops to a critical amount.
Bounty hunter is a typical dwarf melee class, so having a prophet on your back is highly appreciated. You can also use Warcryer on box account. In order to easy and efficient spoiling, you will need specific buffs. Bellow, I will show you the best prophet’s buff configuration for Bounty Hunter:
- might - increased p.attack
- shield - increases p.attack def
- magic barrier - increases magical def
- focus - increased chance for critical strike
- death whisper - increased critical damage
- haste - increased attack speed
- wind walk - increased movement speed
- berserker spirit - increased all combat stats
- bless the body - increased health
- bless the soul - increased mana
These buffs are for your early lvl and only from Prophet class. You can also invite Bladedancer and Sword singer in order to get additional basic buffs.
Gear is the third important factor if you want to spoil efficiently. Bellow, you have a list of the best gear for particular levels.
- no grade set: (you can wear the gear from the 1st level)
- Wooden Armor Set with Hoplon shield and Iron Hammer weapon
- d-grade set: (you can wear the gear from level 20)
- Brigandine Armor Set with shield and Bonebreaker weapon
- c-grade set: (you can wear the gear from level 40)
- Full Plate Set with Shield and Yaksa Mace weapon
- b-grade set: (you can wear the gear from level 52)
- Blue Wolf Heavy Armor Set with shield and Art of Battle Axe weapon
- a-grade set: (you can wear the gear at level 61)
- Tallum Heavy Set with shield and Elysian Axe weapon
- s-grade set: (you can wear the gear at level 76)
- Imperial Crusader Heavy Armor Set with shield and Basalt Battlehammer weapon
When farming you will need offensive dyes which will increase your damage output. I recommend having the following dyes:
- +4 str - 4 con
- +4 dex - 4 con
Since Bounty Hunter has one of the highest amounts of CON so there is no problem if you are going to make this dyes. The completely different situation will take place when you decide to fight with players in pvp, but this will be described in a different guide.
e) Tips and Tricks
If you have a party member with full support characters (Prophet, Swordsinger, Bladedancer, Warcryer) you can wear polearm and make trains in some locations. It will fasten the spoiling process a lot. Depending on the chronicle, you will have a skill called Sweeper Festival which will help you to pick up mats from spoiled mobs.
Spoil skill does not have 100% land rate. Sometimes you will need to use it twice or even more to spoil a particular monster. If your spoil is not landing a lot, that means you have to change location because monsters level is too high or you are simply not lucky enough. The best monsters for spoiling will have green names when you click on them. Blue monsters miss spoil drop rate a lot, so do not expect that the most valuable mats will drop. The maximum level difference between you and the mob is 5 levels. For example, if you are level 20, you can spoil mobs from level 15 to 25. In higher chronicles, you can enchant this skill for chance, so spoiling will be much easier.
When you kill the spoiled mob and it is highlighted in blue, that means you will probably get desired mats. If you do not get mats, that does not mean the drop rate is bugged. It means that you do not have luck. All mats have particular spoil rate. Depending on the server you are playing, you can have spoil rate x3 or more.
Remember to kill monsters with your hammer crush in order to gain additional experience.
If you want to stop leveling, because you need to spoil a particular mob, you will need to make a quest for Feral Imp which will consume 90% of the experience you get.
f) Recipes and mats info
Before you start spoiling, you should think about your plan. You have to wonder if you want to use your spoil for earning money (selling mats to other players) or to crafting the gear. If you choose the second option you have to familiarize with the recipe and search which mats are required in order to craft a particular piece of equipment. If the first option is better for you, check on the market which mats are the most expensive and simply farm them as much as you can. Do not sell the mats to offline shops. Place your own shop on the market with a good price.
g) Which mats are worth of spoiling?
Which mats are worth of spoiling? This is the question which is always asked by people. The best possibility is to farm mats which have a high drop rate and can be used to create frames, durable metal plate, etc. Below I will show you mats which you should spoil in order to not waste your time.
The most valuable mats on every server are:
- Stone of Purity
- Crafted Leather
- Oriharukon Ore
- Coarse Bone Powder
- Synthetic Cokes
- Varnish of Purity
- Silver Mold

- Mold Lubricant
- Durable Metal Plate
If you want to earn a little fortune focus on mats listed above or ask the community for advice. From this mats, you can craft other, powered mats like for example blacksmith’s frame or artisan’s frame. These frames are necessary when crafting higher level equipment.
