that's just it. my biochem is missing a mantle slot item and 2 accessories
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.
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.
Look at RateMyServer and you'll see the servers that have long history and good reviews.
Read the 1st-2nd page sooo
If anyone is lookin to chat, I redownloaded and made a Gunslinger, just add Initiate Arms
Ahh RO, the creeping feeling of being lost and helpless is back :P
