US-based server with EU and SEA proxies available

Longtime RO player here writing another review for what I think is a very promising server. For the past 1.5 years or so, I've been playing a couple 1x servers off and on and decided to give OathRO a try a couple days ago. And I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. I've been mobbing wolves with my Swordsman and more than once I thought; "Man this feels nice." and "This is how it should be."
There are certain features on here that feel really good to play with. One of those features is the global 200% increased SP and HP recovery rate. This also affects passive skills like the Swordsman's Inc HP Recovery and the Mage's Inc SP Recovery skills. All classes will have (some of) their skills changed/rebalanced to make them better and/or more useful. As far as I'm aware, this includes buffs and quality of life improvements such as; decreasing the sp of some skills, increasing the damage of others and increasing the duration of buffs.

Here is an example of the finalized skill changes/rebalancing for several 1-1 classes and the Hunter class:

Do note that a lot of these skill changes go live tomorrow! So you might want to join in now to take advantage of that.  /ok

Join the server discord for more info.

I'll list some more qol features since I think these are one of the most important things. After all, when you spend hours grinding mobs, these are the little things that add up.

Item drop beams.
Rare drops will trigger a little bell sound and a colored beam so that you can't miss 'em. Also that extra oompf.
There are different colors for different item classes.

Max zoom out.
(click to show/hide)
See through trees and vegetation.
Trees and leafs.
(click to show/hide)No trees and leafs.  /??
(click to show/hide)
Monster HP bars.
(click to show/hide)
Clan System.
(click to show/hide)

Increased drop rates for low-level mobs.
For example a Poring drops its card at 0.04% while a Raydric will drop its card at 0.02%
(click to show/hide)
Big Party + Tap bonus, 12 max limit with a 15 level share range
(click to show/hide)
Stylist with 38 different clothes pallettes
(click to show/hide)
They also have the commands; @autotrade and @showexp and #main chat ingame.

All of these changes and qol combined make OathRO really nice to play on. While it is still technically a 1x server, the huge party bonus and the SP regen increase make it so that you feel a lot better than you would on a regular 1x server. From what I've seen so far, the owner knows what he's doing and is very open to input from the community. There's a good synergy going on there. I'm also very much looking forward to the things that Oathkeeper wants to implement in the future. The atmosphere overall wether it's ingame or on the discord seems very chill too. It's not uptight or full of chat rules that you might find in other servers. Since I've only been here for less than a week, I don't have much else to talk about for now, but will likely continue to update this thread as I get more familiar with the server and whenever new updates go live.

Definitely give the server a try if you want to!  /no1

That's an interesting website design and content, heh.

The owner just added proxy servers for EU and SEA regions.



Ofcourse, this is probably not accurate, but it definitely feels better. The proxies could give you a significant boost in ping.
