Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to The Captain Sunbear Show!

 

This is a stream dedicated to Ragnarok Online Discussions and iRO Chaos Renewal . 

 

The goal from the start was to show viewers from all corners of the RO Community and twitch what exactly went on in iRO. A lot of speculation, a lot of rumors, a lot of hearsay led me to believe the server was unplayable, so being the contrarian that I am I just HAD to come in and see how true it was. Long story short, best experience of my life. I know. I know. Not everyone agrees but it's about perspective

The main idea behind all this is that we play only with what the iRO economy/market has to offer and what our gameplay experience from many many many (and I mean many) years have given us with all the classes. True, there are some classes that I have never played such was Warlock or Mechanic or Royal Guard, but the concept I want to show through all of this is the idea of research and understanding game mechanics. Hopefully they show that anyone can learn something from the bottom up.

We discuss patchnotes every stream after maintenance, talk about the state of the economy as well as answering all your inqueries about the server and about the stream (and why we do this) as well!

I hope to see you guys on stream, and I hope you enjoy the show.

Current Schedule:

 

These are the current days and hours I stream normally. If times change I will make a post about it.

 

Friday: Starting around 11 am ~ 12PM PST and ends around 1~2 PM PST.
Friday Night: Starting around 10 PM ending around 2 AM SAT

 

Saturday Night: Starting around 9 PM ending around 2 AM Sun

 

Previous Series in Hiatus:

Zeroes 2 Heroes. 

 

In this series a friend and I start from 1/1 Novice and we make our way through acolyte/swordsman all the way to Rune Knight/Archbishop. We use no outside help and we make do with our knowledge of the server and discuss strategy along the way.

 

The purpose of this show is to demonstrate we don't need high end gears to start a new character and provide a visual of what the early struggles are like. It is all meant to show that the game can be fun without relying on cash shop gears but with the content provided within the game.

 

Current Series:

The Adventures of Cadet Sunnycub:

 

This is pretty much a series about a novice leveling up to super novice and the struggles that this class encounters. The intention is to get all the way to 160 using in-game resources and only obtaining cash shop gears from players who sell them. Having played Ragnarok Online since around the beginning I have a very good idea about all the classes in the game. 
The catch is..I have never played Super Novice. Ever. 

 

Current Level: 134/33
Gears obtained so far thanks to our understanding of the economy and Refine events and more!

Upcoming Series:
 

"Not Another Non-p2w Adventure"

 

We are currently debating which should be the next character to be played on stream and demonstrate our ability to get through iRO by relying only on the current state of the economy and we are also living in a post-ragial world.

The Captain Sunbear Show continues!

 

https://www.twitch.tv/captainsunbear

 

If you haven't yet been informed, we basically run a Rune Knight and an Arch Bishop which began at 1/1 Novices and we are making our way through the game and the content without OCP, Cash Shop Gears or VIP (that you pay for, we only used the free one everyone gets) and utilize our knowledge of the game and the server to get through the game. We make an emphasis on events, features exclusive to iRO and playing through teamwork. 

Today on Zeroes 2 Heroes we cover Illusion of Moonlight amongst other topics such as: what do you even do when there are no events going on on iRO (events that directly help you at any point in the game) as well as the progress I've made on the stream!

Everyone is welcome to join, feel free to chat and give your input! Everything goes, just be respectful!  :p_laugh:

Hi there. I've posted some threads in the market that you might be interested in, including a commission I'm paying to a user who can help me price categorize 5000 some items :) 1bil up for grabs and easy to earn, just need to know the market


First, sorry for the delayed response. I saw the post on Thursday but didn’t get back to it when I got home. Been trying to finish off the last 10 levels of Super Novice on stream (maybe you read the first post but yeah we pretty much going at it from 1/1 and streaming every level sooooo).

Second, pricing various items may be a bit of a tough task, but it isn’t something out of our reach. Ideally I think it would be more beneficial to have a conversation about the iRO chaos renewal market because, quite frankly selling a lot of items can only be done through good pricing and above all, actual demand for such items.

I started maybe 2.5 years ago? And tried doing everything by playing the market and learning it since that’s one of the things I read was the most frustrating, the zeny making. I had some stuff explained to me early on and pretty much went with what was available in the market as of that time and moved forward.

As you may know one of the dominating forces in the market can be either mvp cards or the cash shop gears but there’s also other things that are quite valuable. (I know, you mentioned pricing things what does this essay have to do with any of that?)
The relationship is that the market is very wild but there’s always a few items and cards that come out on top as well as loot that is used for seasonal events or certain cards that go up in price because of how they are utilized with certain gears for certain builds from OCP boxes (you know the ones with the “OP” gear?)


This is the kind of market talk we do on the stream, we don’t exactly price things individually but we observe the overall market trend and refer to data from previous market posts as well as the current in-game market.

What we could do is have you drop by the stream whenever we are on, and we can cover a few of the large game items you may have and how certain gears may still hold their value while others may not hold as strong as previously, mainly due to the effect and desire of the OCP gears in the market.

This isn’t to say in-game stuff isn’t relevant, it surely holds well, white wing set, temporal boots, GSS, the items that get turned into safe certificates and much more. But I strongly believe a discussion about the current market and how to react to it would be better than just pricing items.

What do you think? Is this something you might find more helpful? Let me know!

Hey I like your post and was sent your way through one of your friends. I started playing back when the game came out and have spent about 500$ over the years total, but made my zeny through buying and selling - my first goal was a solar god helm back on the day. When I got one, I then got three more for my best friends in game. Then I found a maya purple card (1b back in the day!) and it went from there. Brynhild and Asprika were next, then two or three of each (had some solid friends who would make the sets into items for me), and then the be all and end all: I saved up for a sleipnir set and my small guild won a woe castle, and the leader, a friend of a friend, made it into a complete item for me. Somehow from there I sold the sleipnir for a GTB and an incomplete sleipnir set - and made a other complete sleipnir thereafter. When I quit in 2014 I had tao, GTB , and a full set of God items.

It's been really interesting coming back. A friend of mine passed away and her family left her accounts to me. She was rich to say the least, and was the opposite growth scheme to me. She spent an unspecific amount of money on kafra items, and I feel bad because inheriting those accounts I saw just how much money she had spent in real life, and mostly had OCP items and tons of bloody branches and X3 manuals. I've since turned those into MVP cards (got myself a tao) and end Level new gears just for fun in case I do return. I intend to donate almost all the remaining(about 60-70% of the items) to new players, and to fund some fun events for the community (MVP giveaways perhaps).

It's been really interesting as someone who played the market (and spent 500$ on kafra items over 10 years) and earned about 400b just through buying and selling, to come back in 2020 and see that ragial is done for and the market is lead by ocp items. I must have turned in 20b in items to grandma boxter to get an unknown amount of value in return. She really is an effective inflation deflation tool, and the whole ocp scheme is quite ingenious as it really zaps the rich players. However, the market is still messed up but I think that's mostly due to the loss of ragial and the shopping boards being impossible to use. I don't necessarily agree with ocp being a God item traditionalist, but I also don't like what happened to woe and farming god items.

We've been Leveling an Oboro for a while now on the show, same setup, start 1/1 and build up with the market and everything the server has to offer. Today I went Nightmare Ancient Mummy Card hunting, 5th one I kill I see memento drop but...I teleported away.(upon checking the video I saw that it was actually a card as pointed out by someone aaaaaand yes.) ANYWAY here's a short clip of our adventures.
