Hello all, brand new here on the Chaos server (Is this the right place? I think this the right place to ask some questions lol)

 

Have played various private servers but several things would drive me nuts and I would eventually lose interest... recently I seen RO was on steam and gave it a shot. Boy am I glad I did.

 

Without further delay, I'd like to ask some questions for some quick answers since digging around seemed to get me no where

 

1. I have earned good money and I am looking to start buying some early weapon upgrades for my characters. It seems smithed weapons are not as common anymore, and I see these "Crimson" weapons all over. Would these be considered good investments towards helping new characters level?

 

2. I understand VIPs get all sorts of perks, but one specifically was being able to have more than 3 characters. Is there a way to unlock character slots permanently... or do you have to have a subscription to hold more slots?

 

3. Generally I am a huge fan of homunculi, and always seem to have a alchemist, creator as my main. I see there are new Homunculus S, and have read up a lot about it. What I really couldnt find was why you pick a specific homun S... since I am not hugely into MVP (or at least never played with enough people to be) what homun S are considered great or best at just regular monster mauling?

 

Thanks for any and all help ahead of time!

1. Crimson weapons are good and some of them are still good even at high lv

 

2. Once you get vip and made more chars, even if your vip expires the slots (or the chars) will still be available unless you somehow delete the char (can't make a new one until you get vip again if you do)

 

3. I'm not too familiar with homunculus but most popular choices are between sera and dieter. i chose sera because i'm cheap with potions XD

Hey buddy, I tried all homuns and homun combinations. My personal favorite Homun S, "SERA". Here's my list, based on my homuns:

 

1. Amistr + Sera

2. Amistr + Eira

3. Amistr + Dieter

4. Lif + Eleanor

 

Amistr Sera, for mobbing monsters, instances and really good at MVPing.

For the most part you pick homunculus based on what they can do to your character, not for what they can do by themselves.

Dieter: Increases your damage, your defense and has some situationally good debuff (volcanic ash). The most common pvm/woe homunculus.Fastest homun S to level up.

Sera: Increases your survivability, mostly against small hits (flat -1000 damage reduction). Levels up at an ok pace

Eira: Gives you an aspd steroid (if for whatever reason you want/need one), it's also the fastest to gain/regain loyalty. (skills consume hunger bar). 

Bayeri: Can give you a Safety Wall. If you have any use for this, great, but that's pretty much all it does.

Eleanor: Filir 2.0. Does basically nothing for you, except hit monsters i guess.

WarpPortal has special promotions that don't carry over on Steam, so you'll miss out on a lot of special headgear and prize opportunities. Also, Steam is not very MMORPG-friendly.

1. For newbies, get them to finish certain quests that gives free equipment/neccesary items to begin with.
Criatura Academy Quests
Izlude Town Quests (Marked orange as you get off the boat)
Eden Group Equipment Quests
 
Crimson Weapons will be a good item to have at level 70 if there are no other options available.
 
2. Invest in even about 5 dollars for wpe to unlock even like a week of VIP.
200 WPE doesn't hurt you. If you're a student, then go farm and use your 9 characters wisely.
(3 accounts per WP login)
 
3. Sera would be the best starter homunculus S for me. I consider her the
newbie's bestfriend. She has this buff that makes you negate about 1000 dmg.
Say if a monster hits you for 1100, with sera's buff you'll only recieve 100.
