I'm kinda late on this but I just happen to stumble upon some really really old screen shots of my time in mRO, dating way back to 2003. I remember at that time I did tried to play on iRO but the iRO's regional block came into effect shortly after few days we have got Broadband internet service in Malaysia. >.>; So I was never able to access my old characters on iRO anymore.

My friends have a thing with taking screen shots of people dying....

Sad I can never get these character names on iRO. D:

People being mean on RO never changes.

 

Sorry it wasn't much. I didn't play long on mRO after it went bot infested and subscription mode. :< School also got me super busy. Reminiscing my time in mRO was what brought me to iRO after all, and this time I am much more invested into the game than I was before in mRO. :)

Thank you for posting the way back of the iRO website.

That job counseling was some serious nostalgia.

I dunno how old these are, but I bought these figures like half a year ago at a local figure store. Owner had no idea what they were and I got the pair for $10.

 

fi7LGS5.jpg

 

 

Oh hey I have some of those too.  Got 'em from Lucky Boxes at a convention back in '07 (before there were Lucky Boxes in the game, lol).  I had the boxes for them for awhile but they seem to have disappeared:

 

3576118e-360c-41e2-ba40-c6694797895c_zps

 

You can change the hats out too.  I want the Alchemist one but can't find it anywhere; it comes with a panda cart. :D

 

I also bought this Drooping Cat off Ebay back in '05 or '06:

 

c609d4b4-c047-412f-b8bb-bcc1b14c2392_zps

 

I have no idea if it's official or not, but it has a white label with the logo "ROShop" and the web address for the korean site sewn into the seam. I tried to take photos of it but my hands are kinda shaky naturally (had to pull back the fabric with one hand) :

 

0dbe8e53-93df-413a-9af2-3321489fe23a_zps919189c1-ef65-4633-b048-ec52d63ff430_zps

 

 It used to have a blue Angeling tag hanging off of it that I kept somewhere for a while, but I don't know where it is now.  It has a zipper on the bottom of the plush so you can widen it out and have it sit comfortably on your head (if that makes sense).  Regardless if it's official or not, it's one of the best looking cat plushes I've ever seen.

 

Unfortunately I lost all my old screenshots from 2004~2010 when my old Gateway computer died on me lol.  I might have one or two from '05 floating around on an external hard drive somewhere.

Seeing the old archived website for the game was funny though. :D

It's official.

http://ragnarok.wikia.com/wiki/RO_Shop

RO Shop was an online merchandise store that GRAVITY started up back in the heyday of RO, but it didn't last long. Anything with the RO Shop logo or that Ragnarok merchandise logo is usually accepted as official.

Thanks for the clarification!  It's pretty neat that I have something from the shop; too bad it didn't last, though.  The packaging they used looks fantastic and the art looks similar to the tag/packaging art that came with the plush.

The drooping cat is really well made so I imagine their other products were of similar quality.

Is that item a plush? Doesn't look very plush-like, nor something you can keep securely on your head.

By plush I mean like stuffed animal, plushie. :D  I tried taking another photo and adjusting the image to make the texture easier to see. 

 

13655bc9-b9f3-4a1d-9988-9f9fa3c7889f_zps

 

It's easier to see around the edges, especially the ears, and the way the the tail looks.  The ribbon is a silky fabric I guess?  And plastic eyes/nose.  And extra white fur from my cat but you can't really see that here.

 

It's hard to explain but it really sits well on the head.

 

dc5e4252-0c71-4a59-946f-12996df1d52b_zps

 

It's already flat on the bottom, but it has this zipper so that you can make it wider (I think some suitcases have something like that, so that they can accommodate more stuff if needed.  That might be a poor comparison).

 

f571c18a-b751-47e8-8cbc-f5e9840359d2_zps

 

It can be unzipped for when you aren't just using it as a display item/plush so that it fits wider on the head (covers more surface area = more stability).  When worn it sits comfortably I guess, but of course it'll fall off if you lean too much one way or the other.

 

Also, for some reason the hands are velcroed together but I find undoing them doesn't change it's stability when worn.  I don't understand why they are velcroed at all.

 

It's really more like a glorified, fancier, larger pencil pouch meant to go on your head lol.  Kind of a strange and silly design, but it works (?).  Maybe I could hide money in it, or a note to my future self.

Huh, looks more like a glorified pencil case rather than a plush or a hat. Convertible hats don't usually have zippers, since hair can get caught in zippers.

Do you recall how you got it? Also, would it be fine if I use your photos? I'd like to archive it on the Ragnarok Wiki.

Exactly lol.  I remember receiving it from an eBay store back in 2005~2006ish (my folks bought it for me so I don't have access to any records).  I couldn't tell you the shop name or where they got it from, but if I recall correctly they might have been selling other RO merch.
 
And go right ahead; just ask if I need to take more shots, edit existing photos, take with a different background, or anything like that.  Crediting me is unnecessary (I even prefer it), and I'm glad I can help contribute.
I'm determined to find that tag when I have the time, if only for record's sake, and I might even still have the old cardboard bag banner somewhere.  I googled different search terms but could find no other photos or information about this hat so it's seriously a mystery.  (Cue X-Files theme)
 
Continuing with the theme of nostalgia,
 
I was looking through some other stuff I have and I found this old promo shirt and baseball hat.  I think you received it if you bought a 3 month subscription (for the shirt) or the 6 month one (for the shirt + hat and maybe something else?).  If I recall correctly it was during the summer that the trans classes were introduced, and I think a friend gave me the hat cause I don't think I could afford the 6 month subscription.  I used to wear it all the time and still do on occasion.
 
 

Spoiler Pics

 
I also found a disc /case for an expansion pack for Ragnarok Battle Offline, which I thought from the eBay listing was the actual game.  It wouldn't let me play it without having the original download for RagBatOff so I have no idea what's on it lol.  It's from 2005 and I bought it back in 2005~2006 off eBay as well.  I always liked the art style for these games.
 I also own an old Gravity Game Card that still has the silver coating over the redeem number.  I have no clue why I never used it or when it was available, though I assume it was pre-Warpportal.  Kinda cool just for the art on it.

 

Spoiler Pics

 

I found some other stuff too, like a TCG box with a Wanderer/Dancer on it, some of the original manga, the DVD with the first few episodes of the anime, and the DS game.  Brings back so many good memories.   :D

 

I think there should be a "Share your RO merch" thread, unless there already is one?  I'd like to see the weird stuff other users have as well.

Could you get separate pics of the hat and the shirt? I've been looking all over for good pics of them, but been coming up empty.

We have this thread that I started up eons ago. It's turned into a half share your Ragnarok merch, half Ragnarok merch request thread.

Sure thing.  

 

I didn't bother editing/resizing these because there's quite a few of them and photobucket's editor is so slow, but I can edit them later if I need to on my work laptop; I do photography/photo editing, but I did rush this.  I think the lighting might be uneven because I have different kinds of light bulbs.

 

Front Shirt  Lol I couldn't fold shirts to save my life.

 

Back Shirt (there's the Ragnarok Logo, and the word DEVIRUCHI on the bottom right)

And thanks for the link. :D  I think I skimmed through that thread a long time ago actually.

Thanks for the pics! Here's the link to the archives I've compiled:

I took the liberty of fixing the colors up in Photoshop. Feel free to send me better pics if you want to see them replaced.

No prob; looks great as far as I'm concerned. :D

 

For the heck of it, I used the wayback machine to find the promotion announcement for the hat/shirt, if you wanted to add info about it or get accurate dates.  I always liked the look of the old website.

I've been playing on and off since beta 2002. I tried to sort through my screenies and pick out notable stuff and sort them into categories. Don't wanna clog up the thread so, aside from two of my favourites, I'll link the rest below in spoilers. Sorry if I mix up screenshot dates, hard to keep track of stuff.

 

June 2002 during 1st Beta, only first classes available, staff unleash Baphomet's clone army and Payon is quickly lost to the evil horde. I think this may have been part of a server closure event, since iROWiki says the 2nd Beta opened in July 2002.

June 2003, servers literally jam packed.

Nothing exciting but here's one of you from 2009. Wishing you all the best :no1:

@scubaduck: Here's some of your wedding, August 2009, Dr. Azzy was there too.

@Renouille: A snapshot from a bygone era in potter Alchemist ranking, July 2009.

If you've seen all the above you're now probably thinking the same as this person (July 2009 with WoE going on over announcements)
