Many of you may remember the following image, which I recently found in old folders saved from way back when:

Brought up funny memories of the LoD days and how unbalanced everything was against new people/non-guilded players. I'm glad so far to see all the changes in Renewal. Since I'm still getting used to Renewal after being gone from RO for a while, I wondered what the new monster addictions were now. I'm not much of an MVP chaser at all (7+ years of playing, never once went for the "MVP" over my head) but it's good to know what new maps/monsters to avoid when solo-leveling.

Someone also mentioned to me in-game that Hocus Pocus no longer spawns MVPs, but I haven't really heard that before... Wondered if it was true?

I suppose Nidhoggur's Shadow is one of the more hunted MvPs these days. But doesn't require a guild.

Hous pocus still spawns MVPs, but it was double nerfed to always require a gem, and to set the spawn chance at superlow values hocusing isn't viable. Other than an event which returned the spawn chance for two weeks, and morphing guardian stones into angelings accidentally, I don't remember any use of hocus pocus after the nerf.

As for maps to avoid when solo leveling... there aren't scary monsters that can oneshot you if you are ungeared anymore. As long as you are in range with the monsters, or higher level, or have potions, you will not die. Unless it is an mvp, or some monster magic attacks (monster magic can hurt due to the new monster magic formula)

As for monster addictions, after going third class, the route is very standart for most classes. Magma dungeon, then juperos, then abbys lake for dragons or biolabs.

Doddler database is a fast reference to find monsters in your range. Welcome back!

Not one, but three sages.

I'm not sure there really is one. Renewal has pretty much ended partying outside of events.

Well Endless Tower which is not endless is very addicting, atleast for me and the guild I'm in.
And Okolnir... Once they fix party system I bet leveling will be fun again.
And well I enjoy KvM and PVP every once in while. Also playing Bingo and the monster races with friends is addicting xD

If they fully fix it, yes. It's not just the share mechanics that make partying unattractive, it's the fact that healers, nukers, and supporters have all been hit so hard with the nerf bat that everyone just wants to solo melee (or not play at all if you're not a fan of melee).
