    Now dont get me wrong ragnarok is a good game but its practically Pay to play without paying money you CAN NOT reach the gears that long time players/pros have without paying ANYTHING .There is no way to make ingame currency besides EXTREME luck through hunting boss monster and out of pocket paying.The game is not noob friendly at all you need to find guides on the internet to get around.The servers are constantly going offline recently due to DDoS or w/e going on.The update on content is super slow IRO is behind like 2~4 years in updates from the orignal game aka KRO aka Korean Ragnarok Online. The lvling is stale you have SOME freedom before lvl 100 to do w/e but honestly unless you constantly on Battle Manualx3(increase exp gained) you have no point of lvling anywhere but Gramp Turn in aka TI which limits the whole world of ragnarok so many maps empty cause everyone only in TI only bots and some hardcore people grind in normal maps. There is alot more stuff but this whats the current situation on game.

    The best is when it's because you got hacked while away from playing.

    ...T___T

    Anyway, my RO nostalgia hole still exists in me some 10-15 years later. I was so turned off by all the botting and etc when I recently tried to jump back into it, the game is just so aged at this point that it's completely subject to exploitation. I admire your point of view though iAddison, looking past bots and such despite the frustration involved.

    I could do the same if I had the time to spare, but I just have trouble conquering the negatives when it comes to investing my time. I'll be the happiest camper when Tree of Savior comes around though all fresh and sassy. Maybe we'll play together then

    The nostalgia on this game is so ****ing hard to beat, but every time I even try to play it I call myself insane and just quit again. My standards have risen, extreme grinding and ridiculous drops rates isn't what the modern MMO communities want. You can't just live on a very slowly dying community and an awesome BGM anymore.

    That .01 card drop rate LOL, the RNG is too real.

    Overall, just play a higher rated (not too high) *cough* server for your ragnarok fixes, there are still many that are populated. The game is still a nice trip in the country and I'll never forget the years I spent from middle school to high school playing it.

    I made myself feel sad by realizing I may never have an experience like Ragnarok ever again T_T.
    Pride is a wonderful trait.

    I actually do like rare drops. The problem is more how players approach it. With rare drops you shouldn't spend your play time hunting them. Fighting the same mob 10000+ times just to get an item just isn't fun. However if you just play for fun and go wherever you want, the game is much more enjoyable. And you will still get a rare drop eventually, just not the one you want. But that's not really a problem as there is a currency system which means you can sell the rare drop you got and buy the items you need from the money you get.

    Occassionally hunting rare drops yourself is fine of course. The rewarding feeling can be totallly worth it. It's different from player to player how much he can take. If you already killed 2000 monsters without getting it and you start to feel bored, better stop the hunt and do something fun before the game is ruined for you.

    Only problem with those type of servers is that they might as well as be P2W servers. Those servers survive off of donations and people who donate are always compensated with custom made items with ridiculous stats that make them immortal. Things like a slotted Megingjard, custom cards that give ridiculous stats that you could put into the Megs. Helmets, wings, weapons, etc. It's really dumb. While it's free, fun, and there is more freedom in those servers with different rates to your liking, it's the "donation items" that really kill the game and its vibe.

    I feel you.. Quit RO probably 6 years ago and after that I would re-install every 2 months lol.

    But I haven't touched it for 2 years+ now so I've let it go already but the game has powerful nostalgia that's for sure.

    There are non-gamebreaking donation servers. Often these are either low/mid rate or pure WoE servers tho

    Yeah I used to play on a heap of private servers who had donation items but they were mainly for looks and nothing more. I do agree there are some stupid servers out there that put high stats on custom gear etc but look around and you'll find some servers that have non-gamebreaking items like feyte said.

    Look at RateMyServer and you'll see the servers that have long history and good reviews.

    Jumped back into Classic yesterday. Seems to have improved a lot:
    - Only 80% bots instead of 90% (total players: 550)
    - Didn't even see any spam (there is some kind of word filter implemented)
    - Vending is now blocked in the custom Eden room so you can actually find NPCs (it had a player shop on each tile before)
    - Most of the spawns seem to have been reverted to the official pre-renewal spawn (can also be considered a bad thing, though?)
    - I couldn't find a reset stone in the classic item shop anymore, does that mean you no longer need to it switch to 2nd job? (only time will tell)

    Oh right, while I'm there if anyone has never played RO and wants some introduction into RO, feel free to contact me.

    If you never played it and want to play on Classic server, my ingame name is "Ryokosha". Or just PM me with your Skype and I'll add you so you can see when I'm on.
