We all know that a golden age awaits ragnarok with the new updates (not talking about the max lvl 150 one)
WoE 2.0,New mobs,dungeons etc...
When that comes out, where will you be?
on a 3x
on a 10x
on a 100x
on a High Rate more than 99 Lvls

The golden age ended when trancendant classes were announced.

No, Trans chars are fun, your fault if you play 10x servers with reseters and donators <_<

i agree. the original pre trans classes were well balanced. most trans are a bit stupid in some way or another.

I love it when more people agree with my belief that RO started going downhill after the introduction of the power-hungry, grind-feasting transcendental classes :V

thats because you're always right skot XD

i played iRO from before even 2-2 was released, but when trans were released started to notice that even a well geared lvl 96 knight couldnt take on most trans classes. the only ones we had fun killing were the sinx who couldnt really afford to edp all the time on 1x drop rates :P. but sins were always hopeless at pvp in official servers anyway.

Its true that in many ways trans players had earnt the right to be strong through the obscene amount of grinding needed. (or botting but thats a whole other story) but since alot of players on iRO got high lvl through MvP slave farming before they made slaves have no exp, or botting (usually with very low chance of getting banned) it wasnt all that hard at certain times.

i havent properly looked at the new class system too much, but what I have heard looks like it will ruin whatever balance RO had left with base lvl 150. if max stats go above 99 then we will see instacast take over, and anyone who has played instacast servers know how drastically this changes the game. if not then the players will become far more hybrid which means certain classes will gain huge advantages. I really should do more research before i comment but it worries me that these changes will become the norm on kRO style servers.

The only characters that i see are broken in transcend are High Wizards and AssaninXs.  I mean, near insta cast high powered AOE skills?  AssassinXs that have OHKOs at both long and short range?  THAT was overkill.  I mean, a High Priest and a High Wizard are near invicible, with really again the only exception of AssassinXs.

All other transcends dont up the power so much, but there is one thing I do have a problem with is that whenever there is an event going on, good luck winning if there are any trannies there.  Seriously, there is no longer any event that is geared toward non transcends.

I would like to see a transcend version of ninja and gunners, as well as for star gladiators and soul linkers.  Or at least add a few skills, such as a hard hitting skill for the gat or any universally usable skill for the star gladiator.

Creator is pretty overkill too, Paladin are a pain to kill, Gypsy/Clown have a 1200% atk ranged skill! All transcend killed the game a little, it's still fun mind you, but it lost a little flavor. As for the new classes, they are balanced to be something between 2nd job and trans, better than hunter, sage, knight maybe, but not than sniper, prof, lk.

I've always prefered low rate, the game is too unbalanced with anything above 15 in my eyes, but to each their own ^_^

highrate with more than 99 levels to be honest, but I always inspect the details closely. I only go to bad servers to inspect, report, or help them.

i shall forever love
1x/1x/1x - 5x/5x/5x rates and non-customs ~

Not that what I say matters much, but still I'm gonna run my face nyways.
I'm gonna stick to this 3k/3k/10k I'm dwnloading.
Why?
I think this is the whole point of pSrv. Amping the game to something Unreal[read Stupid]
& I'm dead tired of grinding. I nvr botted so lvling was a pain in the donkey[literally]
So a Highrate with 99+ lvls it is for me.

But that is taking the other extreme stance.
"Since official servers are about boring grinding, private servers should be about having everything at your fingertips without any effort at all"
If you feel like you need to grind to get anywhere in an MMORPG, then that game will not be fun for long for you. However, if you could get everything you wanted in 10 minutes, what exactly is the purpose? A game should not be about grinding, but it should have a sense of progress and accomplishment...
