DreamerRO - My old "online house"
« on: Nov 05, 2017, 04:42 PM »
Hello everyone. After years of playing here and days of thinking, I finally decided to write the objective review about this server.
I hope that my opinion will enlighten you to make a proper decision of where you want to stay. Enjoy reading!

Before starting I'm going to say one thing: I've played here from october 2012 till may 2017. Took few months break and recently came back with the new fresh view on the server.

1. Renewal(ish)
After X years, the staff team have decided to update the client and move the server to the "higher level of existance". I'm not really going to call it "renewal" but "renewalish" since it might be still a long road to make the server fully stable on the renewal backround. The staff team is currently working on the skill balancing and bug fixing, I've been observing them for two weeks and I can tell they are doing their absolutely best to fix whatever is necessary to be fixed. Server is currently extended with doram class but I haven't seen many renewal features yet (looking forward for instances, other currencies and extra quests - hopefully they will be working on it so ). The level and stats are the same as they used to be before it was changed to renewal - level base 500, level job 120.

2. Rates
DreamerRO is under the high rate server category but beside fast lvling it is more similar to the high-mid rate server (in my honest opinion). I've noticed that players have difficult time at the beggining since sadly lvling till max takes around 30~40 minutes and after that people usually don't know what are they supposed to do next. Items are way easier to obtain than in low/mid rate server but it is not as easy as you would imagine. From one side it is good because you need to actually put some effort into obtaining your gear but from the other side "high rate" is usually considered as a server where you log in, gear up and start pvping right after. I'd recommend DreamerRO to those people who have time to farm and gear up.
Also note: The really good side of the server is the fact that DRO has the "freebie set" with the similar effects to the donation items. Basically newbies are able to compete with the fully geared players at the moment. You may obtain it right after you create the account on the server. Huge + for giving a chance to the newbies.

3. Leveling and max level
As I mentioned before, if you enjoy leveling then DreamerRO is not really for you (unless you decide to take it easy). You are getting max lvl within 30~40 minutes on the special field which was created to "make your life easier". You do not put much effort into it - the real game starts here after you get max lvl.
500 lvl opens a chain of the customizated features on the server --> hero quest, elite hero quest, hero divisions (pvp oriented), battlecombat program (also pvp oriented), access to the special dungeons after finishing the elite hero quest etc. etc.
Note: People are able to play solo

4. Channels
DreamerRO has been finally updated with the global channels as #main #support and #trade. Many servers usually try to stay away from them to avoid the dramas but imo it is a really useful way to communicate with the other players. This way you can play solo but also stay in contact with every person on the server. I'm also glad that DreamerRO has finally opened the #support channel - you can depend on the other player's knowledge, not only on the @request answer from the staff team. I always see some kind souls who are helping the others and usually your questions do not remain unanswered.

5. Customization
Customization on DreamerRO is really extensive and far away from the original server. If you love sprites and you are some kind of headgear/fashion collector then trust me, this server is actually for you (I'm the sprite lover myself lolol). I've been playing on few different servers but DreamerRO has the biggest database of items that I have ever seen.. A ton of hats, a ton of midgears, a ton of lowgears, a bunch of equipment to create your own unique build.. Also 3/4 of the features on the server are fully customizated too so basically it's like the "new kind of game" packed in the "old game".

6. Economy and money making
Economy back then used to be really bad at some points but I've realized that prices of the items have recently dropped since staff team organized the "money purge" and it became slightly better. There are few different ways to make money - for example: finishing the hunting mission quests, farming items for the hero quest and selling them as a set, mining (I haven't tried it yet but I've heard that players are making bilions on this feature), casino gambling (it is quite addicting especially if you are lucky haha), seasonal items farm (during seasonal events, I will mention it down in a moment). Most of people depend on the donation items but you can obtain them without donating as well in few different features - hero shop (from Hero Arena and Hero Happy Hours), battleground and deathmatch points, battlecombat program stores. Basically everyone have a chance to obtain the items with donation effects without donating.

7. Seasonal events
The best thing about DRO (imo) are the seasonal events. Every year the server hosts halloween, xmas event, valentine's event and the easter event. During seasonal events you are able to farm as much as you want to obtain the really nice looking items with the effects similar to donations. Good way to gear yourself up and to make some money from farming. Also you are able to collect the raffle tickets that you may exchange to the rare item (donation) if you are lucky. Each event always ends up with the huge party hosted by the staff team. Pretty much my favourite features on the server.

8. Class balance
As I mentioned at the beggining, DRO have recently updated the client to renewal and the staff team is fixing the bugs and balancing the classes atm. For now it is difficult to me to give any information about it.

9. WoE
WoE used to be really great on DRO but the only thing that always have bothered me was the fact that players were always creating 3-4 main WoE guilds and the competition was only between them. I don't know how it is right now but I guess it haven't changed much.

10. Community
I've been always a really talkative person and I need to admit that DRO has the best community I have ever met in any online game. People are really friendly and open, it is easy to make friends here, they offer items, money, they help you whenever you have questions (especially in main town). The current mediana for the active players is around ~400 but I think it started increasing now again slowly.

11. Game Masters and the Staff Team
I barely see Game Masters in game lately but I believe it's because they are busy with the server updates and bug fixing. Before I left the server they used to organize many events.  Beside that I usually got answers on my @request by the support players not by the game masters. I don't think there are many interactions between GMs and players atm.

12. Server stability
I've got a feeling like the server is fully stable and no lag-free lately. Game Masters always announce the maintanance before they close up the server.


Summary:
The server had its ups and downs but I believe that staff team is doing their absolutely best to keep the server on the top of the tree. I wish to see more entertaining instances with unique prizes, more quests (since PVE players love farming). DreamerRO is a server that I've been playing in for nearly 6 years, took 6 months break and even tho I was never planning to go back here - I did. Why? Difficult to say. Maybe because I've got really good memories related to the server, people that I've met here and all the stuff that I went through here. Maybe because DreamerRO, no matter what background story it has, is giving really good vibes? Maybe because the community on this server I don't know but it's really worthy to give a shot all over and over again.

With love,
Eluminare / Denoel

I wouldn't really call it an advertisment honestly, I can see good and bad sides of the server :)
Maybe someday I will have a chance to visit LRO, for now I'm done with testing NovaRO and DRO - I believe those 2 reviews were deeper than I expected haha. Also I'm sure some greatful player could spare some word about your server!

Oh hi, I recognize your name! You are usually the pretty Archbishop chatting in the Main Town   /no1

As a DreamerRO player myself I think your review was honest and spot on. The server is making quite a lot of progress and in my opinion breaking the norm of what renewal servers can be.

@Lai, I don't think you need your players to post reviews here, you already do enough server advertising by posting on every post on ratemyserver  /heh

I think I saw your ign around too :) and ya, I'm this noisy and annoying ab hahaha. I believe I'm a walking proof that sprite and item collecting could be considered as an interesting hobby and in-game entertainment (as I mentioned before, I had no chance to see the bigger item database in any other RO server).

Well the server is currently getting stable again. With renewal and the customized features it does have a chance to raise up again (aka to be as great as it was before). I just really think that staff team should focus on the original RO instances, maybe with some custom rewards but on renewal base. It could be an interesting combination.
