Fun Statistical Information of the year 2016
These info. has been recorded since January 1st, 2016 until around November 30th 2016
The most played instance dungeon
Over 8 million times were created by the players for entering instance dungeon
1st : War of Eternity (永劫の戦 - ROxLoVA crossover) 11.25%
2nd : Malangdo Culvert 11.03%
3rd : Fenrir & Sara 10.73%
4th : Geffen Magic Tournament 8.84%
(Wait, how is it a magic tournament if I rapidly throw axes like this, lol)
5th : Sara’s Memory 8.79%
6th : The Last Room (最後の部屋) 7.23%
(I’ve never played it yet, don’t have a figure)
7th : Airship Raid 4.95%
8th : Old Castle Glastheim 4.93%
9th : Charleston Factory 4.00%
(This too, have never played it, so I don't have a figure)
10th : etc. so on 28.26%
The 1st rank is because the cards obtained from LoVA are quite popular IMO. Have many good effects, can be sold with high price.
But what really pisses me off the most is that If I happened to disconnect, died without resurrection, I will lose the chance to enter the dungeon again until 5 am of the next day. - author
The most popular Warp Portal’s memo spot
1st - 5th are Prontera, Glastheim, Rune Midgard Allied Forces Post, Verus and Lighthalzen Field 01 respectively.
I see many people use the 2nd as a quick access to Old Castle Glastheim. The 5th is for entering Somatology Laboratory but the City itself cannot be /memo-ed. Other else IDK. - author
The most popular INN
15 million times used in total. The first rank is Prontera (east side) followed by the Verus and the Desert City of Morroc.
The JRO’s GM team says 5,000 Zeny per use so, over 70 thousands million have been paid. Often used while WoE time is active.
The most popular items for vending
Counted when players use “Vending” and input their items to sell.
1st : Giant Faceworm Snake Skin  ~45,000 times
2nd : Boot of Time  ~38,000 times
3rd : Sara’s Robe  ~35,000 times
4th : Staff of Piercing ~34,000 times
5th : Ixion Wing  ~24,000 times
The Giant Faceworm’s Skin (1st rank) can be traded for “Prontera Set”, The one that’s called Prontera Army’s Cloth has a set bonus of many cards and grants immunity to frozen. Which can be used instead of the expensive Marc Card. - Author
Amount of monsters defeated of 滅亡祝福教団
(To be honest, I don’t quite understand the Kanjis : They are Destroyed or Ruin, Blessing, Religious organization respectively - Author)
Counted from defeated number of monsters which are from the “Symbol of Destruction”’s number delivered to “Guard Caption Kesla” (NPC「警備隊長ケスラー」に納品された「滅亡の証」の数から討伐数を算出しました。)
According to the google search : http://ragnarokonline.gungho.jp/special/episode/memory-record/guide/excelion.html “Guard Captain Kesla” is in Verus
The most popular enchantment for Excelion gears
(Thanks Mr.Sigma for the spell)
Excelion is the name of gears traded in Verus. They need enchantment to release its true power.
1st : A-Def ~34,000 times
2nd : A-ASPD ~31,000 times
3rd : A-MaxHP ~30,000 times
4th and so-on are : R-Wind, R-Fire, R-Water (Further ranks can be seen from the source link, too many of them)
Only things I’ve tried are triple R-Wind & R-Fire which reduces damage from the elemental attacks. Most used when tanking boss’ deadly skill like : Meteor Storm Lv11 (Jitterbug) or Lord of Vermillion (Malangdo). If hit without any protective gears, it means instant death even if I had 30k HP.
The most popular costume
1st : [Costume] Beginner’s Hat ~60,000 people possessing it
2nd : [Costume] Grand Devil’s Wing ~52,000 people
3rd : [Costume] Lamp in Mouth ~50,000
4th : [Costume] Ordinary Believer’s Mask ~20,000
5th : [Costume] Invisible Sunglasses ~20,000
JRO GM Team’s opinion on 4th rank is, there must have been a large number of people who devote their
life lives to Pope girl…
For the 1st rank : ← ROFL
The popular tradable costumes from the Costume Mission
Counted from the number of accounts possessing the following costumes
1st : [Costume] Propeller ~3,900 accounts
2nd : [Costume] Bucket Hat ~3,800 accounts
3rd : [Costume] Galapago’s Hat ~3,700 accounts
4th : [Costume] Tiara ~3,600 accounts
5th : [Costume] Tulip Hairpin ~2,800 accounts
Corridor to the Abyss’ depth of clear statistic
Total 6,742 times of people who came to challenge the dungeon
5.1% True boss beaten
35.5% Ancient King Grothur (古王グローザ) beaten
76.5% 4th floor cleared
79.2% 3rd floor cleared
80.0% 2nd floor cleared
81.3% 1st floor cleared
In GM’s team opinion, players who are strong enough to pass the 1st floor can reach Grothur without worrying.
The most popular hat for the Fenrir Card
This card has a chance of dropping in Geffen Magic Tournament. Many people with Magician class hope for it.
1st : Glasses 
2nd : Riot Chip 
3rd : Celine’s Ribbon 
4th : Sunglasses 
5th and so on can be seen in the source link, too many of them
At a glance, middle headgears are player’s first choice. Riot Chip, on the other hand, can be used for general purposes.

56.2% - Players who don’t use skill
41.7% - Using Change Cart skill

2017 New Year’s Event : The Amatsu Uchouten Festival (My guess : The Amatsu’s Chicken Year Festival)
January 1st - January 10th, 2017 (New Year’s Eve mochi pounding start at December 31th, 2016 11:00pm - 0:30am)
- Purchasing Mochi and Ozouni
- Stacking up Mochi to get a yearly costume
- New Year’s Gift reward and the Shrine’s fortune slip
How to begin
- In every towns such as Prontera, there’s an NPC “New year shrine’s visitor guide (初詣案内人)” standing. She offers a warp to event hall for free.
- In the night time of new year’s eve, there’s yearly mochi pounding event where players must defeat 108 little mochirings and get a large number of “Mochikets” as well as “Ozouni-s”
Steps of Event
1. Talk to Etogami Tori, answer him with “Let’s play the mochi-stacking up”
2. After carrying “Mochi” and “Mochiket”, player is able to join the stacking-up mochi contest. Every step of stacked mochi will consume 1 Mochi or Mochiket.
3. The higher the mochis are stacked, the higher the “luck charm bonus” player can get. If 10 or more steps high is done in first 3 days of new year (January 1st, 2nd, 3rd), player will get new year’s gift aside from “luck charm bonus”.
4. Player who stacks mochis the highest steps in that day, player will be given a name of “Blessing God (福の神)” with this name, player is able to join “Challenge of Blessing God (福の神チャレンジ)” and get many deluxe items.
Challenge of Blessing God’s reward
1 of these set is randomly given.
Reward Set 1:
- A complete set of Celine Kimi (consists of Celine Kimi Card, Noble Cross , Celine’s Ribbon  and Manipulating Glove of Evil Spirit )

Reward Set 2:
- Robe of Transcendence 
Reward Set 3:
- Already enchanted +9 Peerless of Nature and +9 Varuna’s United Blue
* Already given set won’t be given again in the next time.
The event’s map
Etogami Tori is in A point. My summarize is there are many event’s exclusive items which can be bought only while events are being held. Notice that there’s also a Kapra who trade 2,500 Kapra points for a new year’s gift. The Kapra Points by the way, is automatically given when using any Kapra’s services.
