There are a lot of people doing the same questions, so let's start a little F.A.Q. for keep the forum clean and help new visitors.

Please, feel free to post new questions to add to the f.a.q.

What is Ragnarok Online 2?
Ragnarok Online 2 is a MMORPG game developed by Gravity Co., Ltd. The game is based on the prequel: Ragnarok Online.
Game Launch Date: 1st May at 15:00 PDT (3:00 PM) ( 23:00 GMT 0 )

What are the common points between Ragnarok Online and Ragnarok Online 2?
Ragnarok Online 2 is a new game. Ragnarok Online had isometric view with 3D scenarios and sprites based characters, while Ragnarok Online 2 is a full 3D game. RO2 has a different card system, different refining system, and basically is a different game, so don't expect to see just RO1 with new graphics, this is a different game based on Ragnarok's universe.

What does mean "iRO2"?
Since RO1, Gravity has taken a common naming policy (kRO, euRO, iRO...), in this case, iRO means: International Ragnarok Online, and is a reference to specify an International Server.
International means more than 1 country, doesn't mean all the world.

What countries are included in iRO2?
At this moment, iRO is going to cover three areas, North America, Europe and Oceania. Due to licensement terms, there are some zones blocked form iRO2, just because they are going to have an own version of the game in these countries.
Blocked Zones: Brazil, Philippines and SEA Server's countries.

Is there any subcription needed to play Ragnarok Online 2?
No. Ragnarok Online 2 is a Free To Play game, just create your account, download the game client and play for free.

Free?. What is the trick?
There is not any trick, Ragnarok Online 2 works with micro-transactions or Cash Shop. So you can buy game stuff with real money on the Kafra Shop.

Do i need to buy if i want be a regular or top player (P2W)?
No. You can play for free 100%, cash shop is mainly for costumes, mounts, large bags, and some more cosmetic or comfortability focused items.
The only one thing affecting player is VIP membership, and doesn't break the game, is not a great advantage.

What VIP membership does?
For VIP membership gives:
  • +5 to STR/INT/AGI/WIS/INT
  • Max HP increased by 10%
  • MAX SP increased by 10%
  • Movement Speed increased by 20%
  • Instance dungeon token (Winner's Point) additional obtain 50% increased
  • Angeling Name Icon.
  • 30 Days Duration Card Album (included in 30 days VIP pack)
  • 10 Pump it Up Hard Pills (temporal buff usable item) (included in 30 days VIP pack)
  • 10 Spinels (included in 30 days VIP pack)
How much is the VIP membership?
About 9$ (USD)

Are there free ingame mounts? (Without paying real money)
Yes, you can buy the standard Peco Peco mount at level 15 with Zeny (Ragnarok Online ingame currency).
Kafra shop Mounts (Real life money) are optional and there are different mounts, and they are 20% faster than standard Peco Peco mount.



I do hope this be useful to people with doubts.

you say VIP membership is not a great advantage, but none the less it is still an advantage, unfortunately making the game a pay to win game. This is especially true when it comes to PvP, as any bonus means someone has an advantage no matter how small that advantage may be, it is still an advantage and in the end it can make all the difference between winning and losing.

I thought the VIP was supposed to include the card album and Pump It Up Hard Pills as well. As for the title thing, it's actually an Angeling nameplate thing you get, not a normal poring haha.

Edit: According to https://support.warp...vip-status.aspx, the card album isn't included, but you get 10 Spinels.

No problem. I was pretty sure I saw it during beta on the description on the VIP pack. So maybe they took it out between then and whenever they posted that. @_@

Oh wow I'm glad to hear that the free vip won't include the angeling. Guess we won't have the Day of Reckoning to deal with after all!

The only advantage i can think of from VIP that really IS an advantage would be the 20% Movespeed. But it does not work on PvP Maps. Stats are no big deal, nothing you cant outweight with skill.

Ok peco reins are 10 zeny, at level 15 you are eligible to ride. I think because of those two numbers, people get them mixed up constantly. Save your zenies kiddies, the peco is worth it.

Are the stats also disabled on PvP maps? If not, that's still an advantage. If two evenly matched players fight each other, the one with better stats will always win.

I don't think so, this is not an math equation after all... probably a lot of no-vips will kill a lot of vips on PvP.
