Yeah, yeah...new Prontera is nice... just wait until it is filled to the brim with vendors. Personally I barely take a breath and enjoy the look of our current Prontera.

 

In the meantime, our Morroc still has a big -_- hole in the middle of it. D:<

Pretty neat. But I'm sure we'll get it after 10 years.

Did everyone in Midgard turn away from Norse religion? They replaced Odin's statue. :(

 

And finally, the Prontera Castle looks more like a castle now.

So I see they're trying to make it match RO2 better. (Actually looks very reminiscent of Final Fantasy IX. A little TOO reminiscent...) I hope they're also rushing that DirectX update as well because it would suck if players are unable to enjoy new Prontera because of graphical issues.

Vendor stalls - I kind of like the covered vendor stalls over the food spillover setup they're going for in new Prontera. But I guess it looks more fantasy-ish than the neatly-trimmed vendor stalls.

Benches - The benches in RO have always bothered me because they look too real life-styled to fit into a fantasy setting. The new ones look like they fit in better (and no doubt they're better designed to actually let players sit on them).

Fountain - I like the new fountain setup since Prontera is supposed to be the frickin' capital of Rune-Midgarts yet it doesn't really scream that. Glad to see Rune-Midgarts' coat of arms (the double-headed eagle) become the symbol it's supposed to be.

Odin statue - The new Odin statue is a fantastic improvement. Makes sense to put the Allfather in front of the castle. I never understood the purpose of that handshake statue that stood in front of the castle (is that supposed to represent the alliance between Schwarzwald and Rune-Midgarts?). Although I don't see why they'd add wings to Sleipnir instead of the extra legs the horse is supposed to have. Weird.

Dye Building - Looks nice, though I doubt it'll make people visit it any more than they do now.

Inns - Very nice improvement on the inn buildings, but I'm still sad there's no way to walk onto that connecting bridge. And the inside of the inns are beautiful. The tables are actually scaled to the NPCs!

Refinement Building - Very impressed they decided to change the refinement building altogether and added an outside forge. Would make it MUCH easier to find. And the inside fits its purpose. (FINALLY, no more half-assed tables!)

Tool Shop - I'm kind of torn on the building's design. It's a 1-story setup so I don't see why the tool shop needs to look like it has a second floor. (Also don't see the point of the telescope, but I guess that's a nice homage to the Izlude Tool Shop we used to have.) Nicer and roomier inside, but I'm worried people might set up more shops in there than they do now. Hope that'll be addressed. (They also need to move that one NPC near the window because she's standing in a box in the new tool shop.)

Weapon Shop - Looks a bit too WoW-ish for RO, but the interior looks much more indicative of a weapon shop than the old one. (Them flat spears.)

Guard Stands - The guards must be very happy to finally have their stands upgraded to be more roomy.

Prontera Castle - Nothing really bad to say about the new castle and we finally have a throne room that makes sense! Why did they have double throne rooms in the old castle setup anyhow??

Prontera Church - Kind of torn on this because I like the cathedral style over the new temple style, but it makes sense in that Odinist worshippers are supposed to be more pagan-like than Christian. (Would also dissolve any controversy with real-life religious affiliations, which is a big plus in my book.) I can't help but laugh at that organ upgrade 'cause DANG.

Clock gates - Not a big fan of the clock gates because they constrict the wide roads. If they had narrowed down the roads to fit the new gates, then that's fine, but the layout they've done looks really awkward.

It makes me want to AFK among the boxes.

This perfectly words everything I thought about the church upon seeing it.

honestly in current lore, there's possibly only one ruler, if any at all, so two thrones is redundant. The rest of the royal family ain't doing too hot either.

The dye building is located in the southwest section of Prontera and the default camera angle has you looking at its backside so if you're looking to AFK without being disturbed, sitting around the entrance would be a good way to go about it.

OOOOOH, snap. That looks awesome. I hope the rest of the continent receives the same treatment.

King Tristan Gaebolg III.

And please don't spoil others as to what happened to him.

 

He is abducted by Space Gorillas and taken prisoner but is lost in the way and he ends being transported to the 5th Dimension, which is really a crappy version of the Matrix, where instead of living a normal modern life, you live in a distopian future ruled by a guy named Felix and your only purpose is to fabricate pennies for him to find on the streets.

 

One day, while he was making pennies, he remembered all the good times he spent ruling his loving kingdom and decided to revolt against Felix. Being a natural leader, he had no difficulties grouping some fellow penny-makers to start a revolution plan. Years passed and they slowly weaved a complex and beautiful plan for revolt.
Finally, the day came where Tristan and his fellow penny-makes started the revolution, which was a success. Sadly, that day, a dimensional rift opened and transported him to our dimension. He was transported to the US during the 1800's.

 

There, he studied the modern life and became an admired politician who eventually led the American Civil War to an end. In honor of this new leader, the country offered him to put his face on a new coin. To remember his humble origins, he chose the penny for the job.
We just know him as Abraham Lincoln.

 

I think...someone should update the wiki with this info. Totally legit. :D
