Hello there! One of the things we are going to be pushing for in the first months of 2012 is getting some updated class/gameplay guides posted for RO post-renewal and post-balance. We'd like to see updated guides on the forums of course, but also updates to the iROwiki guide and getting the information posted on faming sites/wikis like Fanup and Giantbomb.

In fact, when you add guides/screenshots on fanup, you earn fancoins, which can be exchanged for WarpPortalEnergy!

To goose this a bit, the best/most complete guides posted at the fanup page for RO will win an ingame prize and be highlighted on facebook.

Fanup Ragnarok Page

Reddit Ragnarok Page

Giantbomb Ragnarok page

Best guide links will be put here, here's an example of the kind of thing I'd like to see posted: Katreyn's guide

---------------coming soon------------------------

I'd also like to get the page on Giantbomb's game database updated with guides, screenshots, info on third classes, new maps etc.

For these you will need to register a account (free) and let me know who you posted/edited/added as on the site. If you have more ideas of where we can spread the glory of Ragnarok to, post here.

Hmm, guess this gives me some incentive on making that Warlock guide I was thinking about making.
Cool stuff!

I'm not clear is this about these forums too or what? I think we need to see more accessible helpful content "at home" for ragnarok, not the trawl the fansites/sites that may only be accessed by people who don't even know what the game is.

I'd like if they could be written up here on the forums, then posted elsewhere. Getting them posted on general gaming sites helps raise RO's visibility, probably all guides should have a link back to the forums too.

This is just my thoughts, (ok it's not just MY thoughts, I know a couple people working on stuff for the forums) that the forums themselves needs a massive revamp and drive to be useful. We can write all the guides on the planet but if they're buried 17 subforums deep nobody will know they exist.

That giantbomb site, I opened it and the first thing I saw was negative things about RO.
Promotion? I have some much more fun ideas! People should be talking about how fun RO is, the interaction of the community in game, the uniqueness of WoE, the draw of the games retrographics appeal, videos and stories of why they play and stick with it.

Telling someone to makea str/vit/agi hybrid knight isn't going to draw people to the game or make it more visible over others.

maybe I sound mean the way I'm wording that, but that's what RO needs. People need to tell their stories, not explain their stats.

oh

This seems pretty cool, but I wonder if anyone would even like a guide on how to make a pure crit monk. D:>

I don't see why I should update my guide ASAP though when clearly nobody knows if any of the Balance Patch changes are going to be set in stone at this time. What happens when changes do take place? Some builds are rendered useless or viable pending on changes that may or may not be kept through this Balance Patch update.


First thing that needs to be done before making a guide is to make sure things are nearly set in stone before anything else. Major changes can hamper the accuracy of certain guides.

I have plenty of leveling tutorials on Youtube, some with annotations. So where do I categorize it? Or I can't participate unless it's on FanUp or GiantBomb site.
Btw, those are some unknown gamesites, I swear it's my first time visiting those sites. Who are going to read the guides or watch the videos on those sites?

Videos are great.

a guide with screen shots images and video's speaks volumes. A class guide must illustrate some video's bits by the author showing skill usage highlights , mvp bits, neat tricks that could be done specific to the class.

I do suggest there be a limit length of text in guides. Going through a huge walll of text is certainly pretty time consuming and a high chance to skip over some key points.

IMHO a bulleted, brief/Upto the point type of guide is pretty impressive by any standard. The one shown in example is pretty decent.

You know what they say about KISS right?

Keep It Short Simple.

I prefer Knights in Satan's Service, has a nicer ring about it.

God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you're under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul



... pity Gene sucks so much now though. The God of Thunder became the God of Mammon.

:wave:

Anyhow continue... as most RO guides that appear here on the forums provide much needed comedy.

That's a great idea, adding to the OP. Definitely need to have some stuff being posted on other boards besides "I played that back in 2004, whatever"
