welcome-to-RAGNAROK.png

As some of you know, we are going to be hosting people from Malaysia and Singapore. This thread is set up as a guide to unique International Ragnarok Online content and events that will be new for folks from mRO. I'm going to be adding a lot to this over the next week or so. 

 

For those of you just joining us from mRO or elsewhere, greetingsI am CM Oda, the Community Manager of iRO. On behalf of the staff of Gravity Interactive USA, I extend a warm welcome to all of you. We have just celebrated our 10th anniversary earlier this year and have implemented the 14.2 Eclage Update recently. I am still learning about what updates and events mRO had so I apologize in advance if you have had some similar events. 

 

I will be fleshing out the different categories with more information tomorrow: 

 

Weekly Turn in Quests

For those looking to jump right into parties and fighting giant groups of monsters, the Gramps Weekly Turn In quests were introduced. The Gramps NPC in the Eden group will give monster kill quest missions for players, with three level ranges (70-100, 101-125, 126-150). Each week the monsters are changed and the new monsters are announced in the week's maintenance thread, found in our Renewal Events subforum

Pre-Renewal Classic Server

Opened last year, this F2P server uses Pre-Renewal mechanics. To access it, you can open the Ragnarok.exe and click the Play Classic button at the bottom of the Ragnarok Patcher to switch to Classic. 

 

Pre-Renewal Mechanics

-No penalties on experience/drops when killing monsters not around your level

-Stats in general mean more in pre-renewal, and you can get to instant cast if you have enough dex

-Party EXP share is within 10 levels

-Transcendent class characters and Tae Kwon/TKM/Soul Linker/Gunslinger and Ninja classes are present

-Content up to Veins/Nameless island implemented, with more on the way

-WoE 1 and 2 implemented, as well as Tierra Gorge and Flavius battlegrounds

 

In addition, we have introduced iRO Classic specific modifications based on user feedback, which are detailed here: in the Classic Renovation Thread

We have a forum where we work with the Classic community to develop new projects, updates and content for Classic here: in the Classic Foundry

 

Spotlight Events

Each month, we have a special event that shines a spotlight on a certain town. For four weeks, all monsters native to the fields and dungeons near the town have double exp and useful drops increased.
 
In addition, there is also a NPC placed in the middle of the spotlight town that awards extra experience for players who complete all of the quests in that town! Keep an eye on the playragnarok site for news on what town gets the special treatment each month!
 
The current spotlight is on the town of Niffleheim
 

Overlook VIP Dungeon

This unique iRO dungeon can be found in the West Geffen Field map, freely accessible by VIP or by turning in two Reset stones (which can be purchased through the Kafra Shop, or bought from a player merchant). Only characters between levels 30-75 can enter. The monsters within are tougher, but give much more exp. By completing special hunt quests inside of the dungeon, you can earn equipment like Shields, Rosaries and when the final quest is completed there, you can choose to receive one free card from a list. Check out the guide here on our iROwiki fansite.

USRC Tournament

Hosted in the Summertime, we have a yearly PVP tournament with special prizes that take place on our Sakray test server. The tournament is live boardcast on our twitch.tv/warpportal page.

 

Community Run Events

A number of members of the community have been running fun ingame and forum events, ranging from hide and seek to guessing games to rather elaborate events that link in and out of game activities. We provide megaphones and monster spawning help for these events when they have been established. In addition to that, on select Mondays and most Fridays we have some MVP monster spawning in one of the towns.

Also, I would suggest they look at http://forums.warppo...ward-to-thread/.

This thread made me realize how the playragnarok website (the first place new players would go) and irowiki (not the first place they'd go, but the best resource) does not have very newbie friendly starting introduction pages.

 

Playragnarok.com is not updated and doesn't quite cover the core concepts of the game off the bat. For example, gender isn't really something players need to care too much about in the beginning.

 

Irowiki's top headings and first pages don't give all the most important information, are outdated, and perhaps provide too much unnecessary information. I mean, PK server is never enabled and the whole long list of 100 keyboard commands that most of us don't even use half of is not that useful. The main page and intro pages could use a lot of reworking, but really would need some brainstorming and a lot of time to do.
