Lineage 2: Revolution class guide

Updated in January 2023

The mobile version of NCSoft’s Lineage 2 Revolution is a that has been extremely popular. Maintains the complex class system from its predecessors, allowing for personalized social groups based on your character’s race.

It’s essential to remember that your character’s race will impact the characteristics of the class you pick and approach certain things such as raiding, PvP (Player Vs. Player), or castle sieges.

In this Lineage 2 revolution class guide, we’ll cover each class and explain the abilities in detail below. However, the unique skills available to each category will not be covered here.

Best Classes in Lineage 2 Revolution

Race Attributes and Passive Abilities – when selecting your server, you will be prompted to choose a character and race. Every race embodies its unique advantages and disadvantages.

However, Gnomes tend to be the most underrated choice among players. Don’t let that fool you, though – they are impressive warriors with excellent attributes!


Though Dwarves don’t have much attack power, they make up for it with their high defense and hit points, making them appealing to new players.

Passive Skill: Dwarven Potential – The Dwarf is the only race with a more significant health pool than other races. This passive further enhances the Dwarf’s physical defense.

Name Ease of Levelling Dungeons Notes
Sage ★★★ ★★★★ The Sage is a versatile class with healing and low damage, but the ability to buff and survive makes it ideal for PvP and dungeons.
Battle Mage ★★★★★ ★★★★ Although the battlemage does a lot of damage, they are slow and have low health, making them great for leveling up characters and dungeon but hard to use in player-versus-player battles.
War Ranger ★★★★★ ★★★ Though they’re easy to level because of the severe damage at range, newer players will find them challenging to use effectively because of the low HP and lack of damage negation.
Scavenger ★★ ★★★★★ The Scavenger is slow to level character, but she may claim objectives and harass other players and mobs like no other class.
Slayer ★★★★ ★★★★ A skilled warrior with the ability to deal heavy damage and move swiftly.
Guardian ★★★ ★★ While being developmentally average, the Guardian can still control the area through knockdown effects, making them very effective in the PvP setting.

Dark Elf

The Dark Elf race shares some similarities with their Elven brethren; for example, they have fewer hit points. On the other hand, what they lack in numbers, they make up for in strength–they deal more damage than any other character type.

Passive Skill: Dark Elven Potential – The Dark Elf has a higher critical rate than the other races and, due to essential strikes of landing more frequently, may deal more significant damage.

Name Ease of Levelling Dungeons Notes
Shillien Elder ★★ ★★ Though they are frail and leveling them is a slow process, Shillien Elders make up for it in both support and damage-dealing potential. By utilizing offensive magic to siphon HP from foes and give it to their allies, they can quickly turn the tide of battle.
Spellhowler ★★★★ ★★★ The Spellhowler has a lot of power, and its debuffs can impact PvP in certain situations.
Phantom Ranger ★★★★ ★★★ The Phantom Ranger’s heavy piercing damage is excellent for taking down enemies in dungeons, but it also leaves the Ranger vulnerable to attack. With low health, the Ranger can be taken out quickly in player vs. player combat.
Abyss Walker ★★★★ ★★★★ The Abyss Walker deals large amounts of damage in quick succession but has little health to show for it. This playstyle requires more from the player in terms of items and attention, which some might find difficult or tedious.
Bladedancer ★★★★ ★★★★ The Blade Dancer is a mighty class, but even more attention and skill are needed to play it effectively than the Abyss Walker.
Shillien Knight ★★★★ ★★★ With great strength and high HP, Shillien Knights are perfect for leveling up and PvP. However, without proper healing abilities, they can be challenging to use in dungeons with groups that aren’t already set up beforehand.


The Elves make up for their lack of hit points with high evasion and a prominent MP pool, making them ideal for ranged or magic combat. Their passive skills give them a natural affinity for this fighting, making them perfect for those who prefer it.

Passive Skill: Elven Potential – With this passive, Elves have a higher chance of dodging enemy attacks, and they also move faster and deal more damage with magic attacks. This makes Elves good choices for caster classes but also tough to kill.

Name Ease of Levelling Dungeons Notes
Elder ★★ ★★ Although they level slowly and are easy to kill, Elders excel as support healers during PvP encounters, so they should be placed in this role whenever possible.
Spellsinger ★★★ ★★★★★ Although the Spellsinger is very slow to level up, they make up for it in excel with Area of Effect attacks. This means they’re great at crowd control and managing large areas in dungeons and PvP settings.
Silver Ranger ★★★★★ ★★★ The Silver Ranger has a high range and strong attack, making it ideal for grinding, but a lack of control makes it ineffective in PvP and dungeons.
Plains Walker ★★★ ★★★★ The Plains Walkers’ lower armor ratings make them less effective in many fights. In dungeons and PvP, their fast and consequential damage dealing and ability to buff and debuff them make them perfect.
Swordsinger ★★★★ ★★★★ Although the Swordsinger boasts good dungeon damage and leveled abilities, it falls somewhat short in one-on-one Player vs. Player battles compared to other specialized classes.
Temple Knight ★★ ★★★ The Temple Knight’s ability to delay or negate damage is great for PvP, but it doesn’t help much when leveling up characters or doing dungeons, making it tough to recommend the class for either purpose.


Humans are incredibly versatile, which means they can handle almost any situation. However, this also means they don’t have any particular strengths until they reach their first class change.

Passive Skill: Human Potential – Although this passive may not look like much, it gives Humans more resistance to acute attacks than other races and provides them with a natural physical attack bonus.

However, because Mystics or its branching class paths on magical spells, they won’t get as much use out of this racial trait.

Name Ease of Levelling Dungeons Notes
Hawkeye ★★★★★ ★★ Hawkeye isn’t great in one-on-one fights, but his critical strike is ideal when used as part of a group to inflict the final blow or harass giant monsters.
Sorcerer ★★★★ ★★★★ If you’re looking for a high-damage dealer in PvE, the Sorcerer is ideal; however, remember that other players will be targeting you more often than not. In PvP situations, the Sorcerer can still be helpful with proper support from tanks and healers; otherwise, it’s difficult to recommend as the leading role.
Treasure Hunter ★★★ ★★★★ The Treasure Hunter is quick and challenging to catch, making him a good choice for leveling up and PvP when teamed with a tank. He may not have high health or powerful attacks, but his ability to run away quickly makes kiting much easier in dungeons.
Warlord ★★★★ ★★★ With how much damage he can deliver, the Warlord has the considerable ability. Unfortunately, he’s an undesirable pick for dungeons due to his inability to heal, and he’s highly successful when equipped with good PvP support.
Bishop ★★ ★★ Bishop is a support class. While his assault isn’t anything to write home about, a Bishop may almost be the basic unit in the game when used in Fortress Siege.
Paladin ★★★★ ★★★★ The Paladin is a well-rounded character with good stats for both attacking and defending. He also has considerable skills mainly used to control the enemy, making him great to use in dungeons.
