Here’s what some players have said about Mayu’s Ultimate Lineage 2 Duelist Guide:

I’ve been playing the Duelist class for quite a long time, until I stopped few months ago. Since i know Mayu in person and played with him, after seeing his ultimate Duelist guide, I can say it is a marvellous job.

It will undoubtedly help every beginner and pro player out there who plays the class. It will give you enough understanding of how to play your Duelist in both PvE and PvP. The PvP section – Duelist against other classes – will draw you a picture on how to prepare and execute your Grand Olympiad matches, which is very important.

Mastering this class requires lot more effort than most people think and with the help of this guide you will make a huge step forward in developing your duelist and turning yourself into a killing machine. I myself have used builds for my Duelist that are included in this guide and can assure you – having the knowledge included in it and playing your class correctly will fire you up to the level of top players.

If you are one already, you should buy it anyway, because it surely contains things you may not know and the included Cheat Sheet PDF will give you access to various Duelist builds that will make your PvP feel very comfortable. I personaly believe this guide will have a positive impact on the play style of any Duelist player. When I begin to play again soon, I will surely use this guide to fortify my knowledge and skills.

A must-have Guide for every person that wanna put his/hers hope in the best PVP class imo. Based on great research, a lot hours and even years of game-play in Retail and Private servers.

This piece of work can be useful not only for a newbie entering the world of hard-core L2 game-play, but also for every person that considers himself a pro, to approve his knowledge in many ways in this great but also huge world of Lineage II, that usually takes years to be understood and changes very fast.

All you need to know about this kick-ass class the Gladi is here!

So don’t miss your chance to drink the knowledge from the source ^_~!

Good job,Mayu! ^_^

When I was reading the guide I was thinking “what a useful source of information”, everything that I was looking for and interested me about my character was there.

There are variations of builds for the different version of the game, be it retail or private servers.

This guide is useful for beginners like me, and I think it will be useful for advanced palyers too, because it’s well structured and easy to read, and can be used quickly as a reference book.

Great work, thanks Mayu!

OK, it looks great, but how much is it going to cost me?

The effort and time it took to make this guide is easily worth as much as what other MMORPG guides charge, ranging from €49.99 up to €69.99, but I want to make this guide accessible to as many players as possible and help them become better in playing their Duelist characters. This is why I’m giving it away for just €19.99. Make sure to take advantage of this discount offer while it lasts.
