Not negative, just cynical. RO has become so niche that everyone has their own idea of what it should be. The game has become so decentralized over the years, people have developed their own "versions" of RO in their minds.

Server Reviews / Ragnarok Timelines - A unique ...

This is a new server I came across recently after I took a long break from RO and it is a server that I deem worthy of making a (positive) review about.


First things first.
What instantly drew me in is the fact that it's a pre-trans server with trans content and gear(!). I don't think I've ever seen this done before, at least not in recent memory. There is also extensive customization of items, skills and maps. I'll post some examples below to show you some cool stuff.



Everyone has access to Rings (obtainable from a quest) that grant you the "Greed" skill as well as "Teleport LVL1" and "Warp Portal". Pretty comfy!




Every class has had some skill changes or reworks, some small some big.








Some HUGE buffs to weapons as you can see.




Lots of buffs and changes to maps. Monsters are THRIVING in Timelines.


Once you get into the game, you'll be met with a completely custom made Novice Training Grounds with a (sad) story. Even though I am a (big and strong) grown man, I felt a lump in my throat once I got to the end. I can't believe someone could make me feel so sad over a video game character I literally just met.

I don't want to make this super long so I'll wrap up with what I think is the strongest point of this server. And that is quality of life and abundance. As you've already seen from the screenshots I've shown above, we get a lot of strong stuff. A lot of stuff that makes things just nicer. You don't have to make multiple characters to support 1 character. Did I mention there are custom endow NPC's? And that you can buy LVL10 BLESSING and AGI scrolls? Also hello easy sustain!



And there's a lot more where that came from.
All in all, this server just feels nice to play on and I think that's something that's very important nowadays. It's 2024, we should pamper ourselves a little bit don't you think? And even though we gain a lot of power, we're still little second class jobs in a world with trans monsters and content. So there is still a challenge should you want it. Endless Tower anyone?  /ok

Orstein (return to morroc admin) -gave- (not leaked, GAVE) our personal information (login, passwords, IPs, donation info, emails) out when he made his server files public.

I've tried a few servers and none have been what I want but I have been able to update the OP with what I'm looking for now that I have a better idea.

Excellent suggestion, Nova.

Despite multi-clienting being allowed in Ragnarok Timelines, it's very restricted, and the devs seem to actually care about single-client players having a great, social experience.
Their multi-client policy is copy pasted below for anyone who is interested.
Spoiler
Multi Client Policy
Timelines has been designed to be as single client-friendly as possible. Bless/agi scrolls, endow NPCs, a wide range of maps for many different class and build types, empowering of additional support archetypes for parties, and additional items, are all available to aid your experience here. Still, we recognize that there are situations where running a dual client is especially helpful.
Dual clienting is allowed within reason, however, engagement of other players must be considered. This will be a judgement by Staff.

Examples of disallowed multiclient behavior
    Forming a party of only your clients on a map which has other parties present
    Using many clients simultaneously to boost leveling speed or to gain access to areas which require a specific number of party members (for example, Thanatos Tower Upper Floors)
    Multiclienting in WoE for in-castle advantage
    Using a client to grief other players during MvPing while attempting to complete the MvP fight on other characters

Examples of allowed multiclient behavior
    Transferring items between your auto trade merchant and your main account
    Using an aco or priest to warp your guild and yourself to a castle during WoE
    Using your own priest to cast bless/gloria during forging or brewing

Note that auto following has been disabled on Timelines. Bypassing this restriction shall be treated as client/packet manipulation and handled accordingly.
[close]

Upsides for oldschool NA players:
-Server location is North East US, and mostly English speakers present.
-Restricted multi-clienting experience.
-No unofficially added items, maps, instances, monsters from what I can tell besides the addition of a Valkyrie card for the officially existing Valkyrie enemy who never had a card to begin with.
-No @autoloot.
-No content beyond Episode 12.1. E X C E L L E N T
-No GRF edits unless approved by GMs.
-Existing rules against cheating and auto-style gameplay.

Concerns:
-No apparent form of server funding from the playerbase to ensure longevity of the server's existence. I'd prefer if there was a VIP service, or cash shop.
-The allowance of multi-clienting, despite restrictions and rules, forces that much more policing necessary by GMs to ensure fair gameplay for single-client players. Takes away time and energy of GMs which could be better spent elsewhere. And if no one is spending time to police it, the rules might as well not exist, and single-client players are going to be extremely disadvantaged.
-Quite a bit of customization to skills, maps, mobs, and items, but at least most of these changes make logical sense and are extremely minimal.
-The playerbase is still small, but the server is still very new with time to grow, only having opened in April 2024.
-Rebirth is permanently disabled - no transcendent classes. I find rebirth skills to be a fun addition, and I would likely miss using those skills a lot.

Overall great suggestions, and I'll likely either play on Ragnarok Timelines or RagnaGoats.
Thanks a lot, everyone!

If you just want to dab a bit into RO casually again and don't mind low population, you can also take a stroll in NiktoutRo (ep8). It has a web browser version, so you won't even need to download.
https://classiccp.niktoutro.com/main/

As far as I can tell:
- Not having rebirth anytime soon
- 2~3 multi-client
- No vip/donation
- Autoloot
- Job changing npc
- Quests for kafra shop headgear
- Lowest card rate is 0.03, lowest gear rate is 0.07
- Level up reward at particular levels
- A starter pack for novice, tied to account
- Small amount of zeny per monster killed
- Relatively vanilla, but some monsters and equipment from different episodes are mashed together
- No WOE

Then there is GodRO (ep5, won't have rebirth) with vip rates and no cash mall. Seems like the server is growing, can't comment much because I haven't tried it yet.

Quote from: iamtatin on Yesterday at 12:36 AMmay I suggest you try OmaRO? though it's a low population server


I appreciate suggestions, but this isn't a very good one because OmaRO doesn't even list its rules anywhere.
I checked both on the OmaRO website and on its discord, and in fact there's very little information what so ever, so not only is it impossible to tell if any of my listed requirements apply to this server, except the max base/job level, the little bit of info that was provided are the existence of unusual custom events such as cock fighting and and disguise event.

Also, I should have been more clear from the start, but please don't suggest servers in which the playerbase are overwhelmingly non-English speakers as is evident from OmaRO's discord.

Thanks anyway.
