Maraming salamat po.

 

Update 4/24/2015Due to corrupted data from what we had received from the migration process, it was necessary to clear inventory, storage or both from some ~500 affected characters in order to get the server to run. We greatly apologize for this and will be preparing to distribute starter gear packages to those characters as soon as we can.

 

Update 4/23/2015: Final Stretch!

We're working closely with the development team to test and insure that the pRO migration goes as smoothly as possible. You can see Thor in the server select menu but it is not open yet! We're in process of extensive testing of items, characters and making sure that the items on the exclusion list are properly removed. 

 

Newsletter! We recommend that you log into your warpportal account to sign up for the newsletter. We'll be giving away something fun in the next newsletter in May so make sure you're signed up before then. Check out this guide on our support page to see how to sign up!

 

Update 4/07/2015: Latency assistance!

 

There are a number of suggestions that can assist with lag. Many players have reported that the leatrix latency fix actually does help so you may encounter the same improvement. 

 

April 1st

-Jumping Janeway Quick Leveling Event (Renewal and Classic) Quickly advances characters to lower middle tier in levels. To get them into the game faster. Very basic items and consumables are awarded.

-From March 1st to April 23rd if an account creates a character on both the renewal and classic servers and reaches lvl 30 on both servers when the Thor server launches the account will receive a quick leveling pack

(5x Account Bound Battle Manuals) in the Code the Redeemer Storage on the Thor Server.

 

April 8th,

-Complete the Easter Quest on the Renewal Server and receive the Easter Quest Headgear on the Thor server through Code the Redeemer.

-Complete the St. Patricks Day Quest on the Renewal Server and receive the St. Patricks Quest Headgear on the Thor server through Code the Redeemer.

 

April 15th

-Sign Up for the Newsletter. Accounts that have signed up for the newsletter will receive a free gift on Code the Redeemer when we sent out the May RO Newsletter.

 

-Please tell your friends about these events. Get them in game and playing!

 

April (after opening of server)

Jumping Janeway Event: Talk to the NPC Janeway to get lots of exp! She will provide starter gear and get you leveled quickly to 99!

 

Skill reset: The Mesmerist NPC will be giving free stat/skill resets in the Paradise/Eden Group. 

 

Port Malaya spotlight! During these events, monsters found in the fields and dungeons of this town will have double the exp, increased drops and more spawns!

 

 

Update 3/31/2015: Guilds will no longer be preserved in the server merger. 

 

Starting this week we will be having a series of events where participation will earn you items that can be claimed on the Thor server. As well as a quick leveling event for users wanting to get a head start on the Chaos Server.

 

Update 3/26/2015: We're getting a better confirmation on the timetable for when we can open the new server from the development team. We had hoped to open very close to the pRO close date, but the late posting of the Level Up Opt-In page has resulted pushed the schedule back for the opening to late April. Not exactly the date that we wanted to give to you guys, but we're working to make the transition as smooth as we can, and thank all of you who have already been acting as ambassadors between the communities. 

 

In the meantime we will be starting up a number of fun April events on Classic and Renewal (as well as on the forums) to take the sting out of waiting! 

 

Update 3/9/2015: Migration Page is Live! Login to confirm your information to opt-in for the server transfer!

 

pRO players will have until April 15th to opt-in! The migration will take place after the new server is opened, but you will be able to create new characters play on Chaos Renewal and Classic Loki while you wait. 

 

Here is the FAQ

welcome-to-RAGNAROK.png

 

Just a few hours ago, the staff of pRO have announced that their service will be ceasing operation on March 31st 2015. The RO journey is not over for their players however and working together we will be offering a new home for pRO players here.

 

 -Players from the Philippines can now register new Warpportal and Ragnarok accounts (officially) and can begin playing on Classic and Renewal right away. We encourage new players to try out Classic while they wait for their renewal characters to be transferred to our new server since they have not had a chance to play on a Classic server since they launched Renewal!

 

-In April we will be opening up a new Renewal server and migrating accounts/characters/items* from pRO there. This server will have WoE times that are convenient for the Philippines and all the updates we have on Chaos. This means that they will have access to level 175 and WoE TE right from the start! 

 

-In order for them to have their accounts moved over, they will need to sign up on an Opt In page. Only accounts that have signed up will be able to be transferred! That page will be live soon. 

 

For the iRO community: I will need your help in welcoming our new friends, potential guildmates, PVP and WOE Rivals to our community and to our new players: Welcome and enjoy your stay. 

 

*God Items, God Item Pieces, unopened random boxes, and MVP cards will not be transferred over to the new server. We will have details on which items will not be transferred and what compensation will be offered for these soon.

what is the server transfer policy? will you be allowing xfers between the renewal servers?

if so, you need to also establish zeny limits, since it looks like people will be able to move over with almost all of their wealth intact.

I welcome our new Phillipines RO players, and hope they enjoy their stay.
However, any transfer between the iRO Philippines server and the iRO Chaos should be forever prohibited, and they should never be merged.

It would not be advantageous to either server to potentially have very powerful characters and gear being transferred between them for a long time.

 

There will be restriction on zeny transferred when the migration happens.

i welcome pRO players. since more people means more fun. btw i also looking forward about transfer policy, make sure items which are unavailable here but available in pRO dont got in.
btw, why you should make seperate server for pRO? that defeats the purpose of iRO where everyone from around the world gather together besides we already have pinoy playee here in the first place like Exuro and Lyrage, and i think they have no problem with iRO time of woe.

the fact remains however that this hasn't been ruled out as a possibility sometime in the future. hopefully the GMs will be closely monitoring the economies of both servers ahead of ever enabling this feature.

I think them having their own server for their own characters on pRO is great, they still have a place to play their invested characters. iRO chaos is always welcoming of new players, nothing will prevent them from making alt's there - who knows, maybe they will enjoy the change?

additionally the new server will have woe times specifically catering to that population. I'm sure the current renewal times aren't all that great for them even if it is playable.

It's very likely we will have a Janeway event on the new server so Chaos players would be able to get on that server and play more easily.

thinking about this a bit more...isn't a zeny limit pretty easy to get around? you would need a check built in to check things like account creation date just to make sure people aren't transferring dummy accounts that are just cash mules.

Question. If this new server stablishes, and since you're not denying transfers might be possible at some point, would you freely allow god items, god pieces and items to be carried over?

 

Example: X guild from chaos brings up a huge group to new server to monopolize woe (because why not?) X guild then transfers pieces from new server to chaos, or viceversa.

Please allow me to assist. As they are my countrymen and I know that the welcome would be mixed at best, I want to welcome them with open arms to the international community. By the by, what is the name of the new server?

...for a long time.

 

I foresee very bad things happening in the future...

 

I understand that Level Up is the first company that's going to be sharing character data, which no other server had in the past. But opening a new server and allowing them to bring their characters and everything? I understand that gods/MVP cards/etc aren't going to be transferred, but seriously, a new server? Sorry, but I only see bad things coming from this. I mean, when all other servers closed, they were forced to start fresh. They couldn't bring anything. That, IMO, should be the norm. I feel for the pRO players, but players from mRO and other defunct servers that came here were the ones who really got the stick.

 

Also, I think it'd be wise for WP staff to encourage the LU staff to put out an announcement at least in their forums about how RMT and botting aren't allowed here.

 

Just my opinions, but either way, welcome to (a temporarily segregated) iRO, pRO players! :)

Should not enable WoE until there is a stable population. If you guys do, the server is already dead before it even started.
