I'd love to do something zombie themed as part of the anniversary quest, but I'd want to save it for Halloween and have a whole zombie apocalypse themed event. I think there was a thead with suggestions for that.


YES!

An event with turn in stuff on certain maps would be fun, maybe not dragons tho I'm kinda dragoned out... some new ideas -

Thor's Dungeon - Because it's a fun and challenging map I think people would enjoy a Thor event.
Geffinia Dungeon - Because geffenia just doesn't get enough love! Sexy Incubus pets plz?
Ruin of Juperos - A nice event map for new 3rd classers, and Vesper can offer some challenges to the higher leveled players on the 3rd floor.
Kunlun Dungeon - Because I really like Kunlun...
Biolabs - Bring back the old love! Bio3 was my favorite map back in the day, but I haven't been since before renewal.
Thanatos Tower - Again and old favorite that I haven't seen in ages. Perhaps the different levels can correspond to the player's levels.

Maybe after you do a certain number of turn ins on a character you get a special gear as a reward or something.

Another cool idea would be maybe an event involving Battlegrounds, since it's so dead lately. Maybe half off for the rewards or bonus points/badges or something.

ps offtopic: Since i'm throwing out suggestions, the party booking system can use a little work(when you tele with party search open. omg so annoying). I think no one uses it because it's a little confusing. People don't know whether to put the class they're looking for or the class they are, and the level imput is kinda wrong too. You are level 102 you put in 102 but it only displays you wanting to party with level 102 to 117. What if I didn't mind partying with someone lower, you know? anyways I'd like it if they gave it a fix.

I would absolutely LOVE it if you would turn old payon into a ghost town~, title would be... "a fading memory of what once was..." BAM! oh and did I mention that porings should roam around all over the place dropping god items 100% of the time? B)

Oh and as a special anniversary once a year item in kafra mall LUBE! I know kro has the ability to remove cards from items and would love it if we could also. I hate how I have all these old school weapons I want to upgrade, for instance gladius ~ scalpel -_-

Imagine a event in which you get to capture, if you can, every monster in the world of Ragnarok. (MVP's excluded) To start this event you'll be given a special accessory. This will give you a skill called capture that works similar to pet taming. A monster can only be captured when it's HP is low enough, and the chance to catch them is rare. <-- This might need some working out. Maybe players will be able to just use the capture skill without having to weaken the monster, so the event will be more widely available to even weak players. Each time you catch a monster it will be turned into a Monster Card but not a functional one. Possibly turning them into Monster Orbs would be better. Or even little dolls.

Your goal will be to capture every monster in the world of Ragnarok. Players who accomplish this will be given an extravagant reward. However you will also get rewards as you climb up. If you capture ten monsters you'll get a reward, at twenty you'll get another reward, at thirty, so on and so on.

I guess this event would last a month.

Do you know how many monsters exist in Ragnarok Online? Can you catch them all?

We could donate the monsters to the Monster Museum in Juno so they can expand their collection.

I'm probably one of the few players that still remember this:

Early in Open Beta (?), when the wonderful GOD-POING was a GM on RO, she tried to hold a special in-game Novice-only event that would be held just outside Payon (old Payon, of course!). It was a very simple event, with small games including things like Rock-Paper-Scissors. Even though it was Novice-only participation, everyone was invited to come watch.

Of course, GOD-POING, being the sweet Korean woman she is, was unprepared for the American MMO community. Back when the server population was massive, people swarmed around her and the novices wanting to join the event, yelling things, spamming skills and generally causing mayhem. GOD-POING continually asked people to move away from her and the novices to "give them space." After 10 minutes of no one listening to her, obviously frustrated, she summoned some MVPs on the crowd and left without doing the event.

Aaaaand then we were told that there would be no more in-game events. :)

Not exactly a "fond" memory, but one I remember all too well. XD


So anyway, maybe as a supplement to a main event, you could have a "Spirit of GOD-POING" NPC giving out buffs. I would say "for Novices or low-levels only" but I'm sure many would rage at that. :D

That's actually very sad... I was wondering, why there are no such events on iRO o.o
We had 3 ingame events on euRO each week. More if there was something to celebrate.
We hadn't got this problems later on, cause they were so frequently, only people who wanted to join came. Allthough there were some issues with cheater on special events... (like Petmaster - giving away free Pets after finding the gm with the name Petmaster x3 - some cheated with warps and several characters of their own, but we found a solution for that too x3)

It was a lot of fun to make these events actually and to held them ingame - and the participans always were very nice.
Maybe it helped a lot, that the Event GMs (nickname "Eventi(s)") only had restrictive powers. We could warp, call, hide, broadcasts, some could spawn monsters - but no one could create items or punish a player. So we had another connection to the player... ^^

Posted this a while ago but posting again in proper thread.
I would like to see the following for anniversary:

1. 2x drop event.
2. 2x rewards from kvm/bg *that if they are fixed and working as intended*
3. Raffle event.
4. Obtain an iRO winning custom hat through a quest which you can engrave your character's name on it afterwards.
5. Geffen MvP summoner.
6. Access to classic payon town but PvP enabled
7. 2x rewards from god seals. Probably the kvm and the experience rewards.
8. High end MvP Spawn twice per day in major towns.

Instead of capturing all monsters, maybe introduce the other tame-able monsters like Dullhalan, Miyabi, Incubus, Medusa, and such. Also, we could have a turn in all over Rune-Midgard Kingdom. In every city, there should be something to do.

The previous anniversary was nice because I got to explore the Islands. So maybe its time to explore other cities too and hopefully the airship business would get some part in it (to prevent warping) :(

Everything posted here seems interesting too but I agree with leaving the ghost-themed ideas for halloween.

Oh...and GM Qilin, there was an event where payon was "invaded" by undead monsters if im not mistaken, and im pretty sure that was old payon. So, that would be a good event to bring back.

Dunno if it was mentioned. But can we fight the God Poing even if it drops nothing? I forgot its name, but it was a GM Spawn monster that was.. a poring. With its own mob spawn(I believe it had the angeling spawn monsters), had incredible health, teleported/healed/safety walled. Was awesome when he was summoned in Prontera and wrecked loki for a few hours. Almost as fun as the 14 hour Arc Angeling fest(Someone DB'd 3 arc angelings in GH GY, took 14 hours to kill all 3). Man. Nostalgia in the house.

For an Anniversary that has a plot to go with it (in the sense that everyone is asking for a kill-count-turn-in event), how about a return of the Travel Agency with a request:: "HELP!! SAVE THE TOUR!!".

In previous anniversaries we went on scavenger hunts for the tour in the lands of Amatsu, Ayothaya, Louyang, and Kunlun; rewarding us with Baseball hats (and other headgears, brownie points to whoever can remember them all first :waddle: ). This time around Drake is muscling in on the business with all his friends (Skeleton Pirates [lv48], Rybios [lv98], and Frus [lv128]) invading towns of the Travel Agency's Tour. It's our job to take them down and clean up the streets of these travel destinations.

3 towns (of Amatsu, Ayothaya, Louyang, and Kunlun) you decide which of Drake's friends (Skeleton Pirates [lv48], Rybios [lv98], and Frus [lv128]) invade which town.

For example:
  • Amatsu invaded by Skeleton Pirates [lv48], quest acceptable level range 40~90, kill-count-turn-in set to 100, rewarding Baseball Hat[1] first time completing and 80,000 exp/jexp on following completions.
  • Louyang invaded by Rybios [lv98], quest acceptable level range 90~120. kill-count-turn-in set to 100, rewarding Baseball Hat[1] first time completing and 280,000 exp/jexp on following completions.
  • Kunlun invaded by Frus [lv128], quest acceptable level range 120~150. kill-count-turn-in set to 100, rewarding Baseball Hat[1] first time completing and 680,000 exp/jexp on following completions.
  • The monsters would be special event versions; when killed will supply no exp/jexp and no drops.
  • These towns could have teleport disabled.
  • Added bonus of holding event in towns, everyone gets no death penalty.

For the one town excluded from the invasions, Drake could be there as an npc, participating in the Anniversary's traditional festival; controlling the raffle ticket game :waddle: . (Some Mobsters [lv58] could even crash the party.)

Post your comments and let the iRo Team know what you think. Happy 8th Anniversary!! (the monsters (lvs 48, 58, 98, & 128) make sense right, right.. :waddle:)

These events really need to be pronoun. Lately, to even be involved in the events you have to go out of your way.

For example, the living dead event idea you guys were talking about earlier:

What would probably happen:

It's some random barely noticeable quest that triggers insignificant monsters to force the player to do new yet routine tasks

What needs to happen for it to be any fun:

THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GETS INVADED

EVERY PLAYER IS AFFECTED (even if minimally, so as not to aggravate players not interested)

SPRITES ARE CHANGED

STATUS AILMENTS ARE MADE

STUFF NEEDS TO HAPPEN TO SAVE RO.




Don't take the idea too literally, think of the principle.


edit: this kind of mentality will bring the types of real changes we should see in updates. Less tweaks more change.

Personally, I would be very upset if RO decided to bring back some of the old event items. Those were a one time only thing, and they should stay that way. I know this seems unfair to those new players, but if you did so, it would alienate the older players who worked really hard to get those. There's nothing in the game that lets people know you played back in beta or whatever besides having these items (of course, since you can sell them, that's no way to tell, either)

As for monsters being summoned in town, I personally didn't like that, because they tended to be too high level for my characters, and when I was vending, would wipe out my shop.

If it's going to be a celebration, it should be fun, and add a sense of community. Perhaps a quest chain to help a newbie get to his second job? And get gears and other items together (not actually *needing* the gears, but 'helping' him farm for the items) You could even have it so that he asks for items in chronological order of when they came out (he wants to be a swordsman, or whatever, you get him some weapons, then armor, then he decides he wants to be a crusader (since they were introduced after knights), then a pet (since they came out after 2-2 jobs, I believe) etc.
