My experience in TalonRO

(1/8) > >>

Wreet:
TalonRO is this incredibly big, helpful and friendly community, which is willing to help you wherever you go. This is a very important aspect, if not the most, when talking about a highly social game like Ragnarok. The Discord channel is full of life and enhances even more the social experience. Furthermore, you can use discord to chat directly with the GMs, which is also important to note.

PvM is very extensive and well established, with a lot of different alternatives between custom and official dungeons and mobs. There are also daily and monthly events which always keeps you entertained.

One thing I don't like is the customization or nerfing of some items. In my view, these items makes official PvM much easier and on the other hand changes the meta of Ragnarok very strongly. They did this for what they consider to be rebalancing and there are many people who like it so I won't put it in the cons but it's necesary to note this in case you're thinking of joining the server.

Starting with the cons, the main and most important of them, is that PvP is dead. Its necesary to say that there is two modes, Vanilla and Unrestricted (which allows you to use those custom items I talked about before). This just splits players into two modes which affects the total amount of people playing each one. Even though, the most popular mode nowadays, Vanilla WoE, has just 3 guilds actively competing for the castles. This is a crime in a server which averages 1400+ players online. So, if you're interested mainly in PvP, this is not the server you're looking for. They really must work harder to improve this aspect as the main downside of the server.

Another con is the donation thing. Everything, and if not everything, almost, can be obtained donating. It's compulsory to say that you can get EVERYTHING by grinding, so is not a pay to win server, but it certainly nerfs one of the main aspects of Ragnarok, the before named grinding. This also leads to an extremely controlled economy which is more or less dominated by donation coins price which could be good in a way but it certainly looks artificial with no variation of prices depending on the usage/quantity of the items in the game. This tendency also leads to  Grinding money > Grinding items, which cuts hard the farming thing.

To sum up, PvM = 10/10, PvP = 3/10, Economy = 6/10, Social aspect = 10/10. It deserves a try, I personally like it due to social aspect, but it requires a lot of hard work to improve the PvP scene.

Doing this whole thing in my freetime I cannot work harder on PvP than on my RL job for instance. However, we are working actively on PvP already. You might have noticed the PvP events that popped up during the last weeks for example.

None of the high-end items ban be obtained through donating. Neither our SQIs, nor other high-end items. New episode items are not added to the donation shop either.

This acxtually helped to keep our economy stable for the last 10 years, so the pros outweigh the cons by far on this one.


Thanks for your honest review, I appreciate the feedback!

Styx:
Well, he means Boreas, that a good and smart player can get anything with donations, regardless if it is directly in available there or not. I am surprised though you still need a job beside this server it shouldn't be an obligation but rather a choice you make. True is that your server is better in prospects then any other so called trash not P2W server around which exist for 99% out of lowlife 3thparty users with no dime to spend at all except the stolen credit card they can get their hands on.

Boreas:
I do think it's very professional to enforce our server rules. Not sure what unprofessional about our responses. You asked why you couldn't donate, I told you that you were banned for having more than one forum account. Then you submitted a ticket and asked if we could delete your forum accounts and I responded with "nope". Sure, I could have written a 20 lines paragraph instead, but it would always come down to "nope, not gonna delete your accounts as we need them for our punishment history". Anyway, better spend your money on a server that does not care about its rules.
