    the raid boss Zaken, from Lineage 2

    unit is game tested

    previews:

    (run - default - fortify - attackC - attackA - attackB - victory - fortify - attackB - death)


    In the death, he dissapears, because thats what he does in the game, too. he does a step backwards before dissapearing if you couldn't notice :p

    attacks are named in the order in wich they were made, but I thought this order suited better. feel free to play around with it yourself >_<. remember to also edit the sounds when you do.

    for those who know him, suit isn't exactly it, this is the closest I could get...

    he is supposed to be a pirate... an undead pirate O_o.

    oh well, ENJOY!

    So, I saw the title.. Zaken. And thought to myself, WTF is a Zaken? Then I thought, must be one of ruby`s units :D

    Looks great!

    That's exactly what I thought too :lol:
    As fir the unit... he seems a little shy in the attack: small moves, little footsteps... maybe he's afraid of getting cut by one of all these swords ;)

    yeah well, he mainly lets his swords do the work ^.^

    but yeah, I didn't really want to let anything get of-screen, as the 100*100 frame seems nice for this kind of unit. also, this is the first swordsman unit i did >_<

    yeah, well, couldn't really find a generic name, so I just took his actual name :p

    Me too, as soon as I saw there was a new post in the units forum called a "zaken", I knew it must be Ruby sauce!

    And I must admit I've really become a fan of your work. Great job!

    So what's his recommended attack/defense values?
    With all those swords, he must be in the stratosphere!
    Nice work.

    Zaken is an undead Pirate King located in the Pirat Isle south of Giran, he is a level 60 EPIC Boss, in Lineage II, defended by an army of undead pirates.

    EPIC Bosses in lineage II are almighty which means basicly that most of them requieres an army to be beaten, Zaken is madeable by about 40 people, while bosses such as antharas early game cannot be beaten unless handed over by around 120 people+

    Because highrate=/=lowrate, you will never EVER kill zaken with titans on a lowrate, you need 2 parties of 6x SH's supported with 2 tanks, to block zaken off, since he ports out people around hes ship, and 1 tank just wont do, while he . .. .. .. .ing runs around ALOT, so its impossible to . .. .. .. . him up with frenzy, cus` even with maxed out p.attack hes dps is still lower then any SH [for newbies - DPS= Damage Per Second]

    But whatever, if your killing him with 1 titan, 1 bishop and 1 warcryer somethings DEFINITELY wrong >.> or its just some kind of a x500 serv or whatever
