Ragnarok Roleplay Online
« on: Jul 29, 2020, 06:46 am »
Ragnarok roleplayers have been looking for something like this all their lives, and here I am. Roleplay with excitement to play with friends and hardcore for veteran players, a sensational mix.

Ragnarok Roleplay Online is a brand new server focused on roleplay and hardcore mechanics.
The community is still small but is growing with each day I played.

They have a solid community of roleplayers who loves to build new aventures with new players. The roleplay is made IN-Game with lores made by characters themselves. You can travel to unknow places, find treasure chests or fight new creatures. It's all up to you and your roleplay group.

What If you don't want to roleplay and just want to enjoy the hardcore mechanics?
It's okay! Although we highly recommend doing roleplay with your friends It isn't obligatory to roleplay.


A. Base exp only comes with time playing, quest like job or with Leap of Fantasy (droped in treasure chests) .
B. Job exp can be obtained by killing monsters. Symbolizing the use and maturation of skills
C. If you die your character will be deleted and your itens dropped (Real Death). (Note: If you have the item "Guardian Angel" you'll only lose your items and not your character).
D. They have a Hungry system. This brings a greater reality to the game and the character, and also more challenges. If you Hungry speed will slow down and your mana will be consumed. Other systems as miner and fishing or use the fire pit is there too.
E. Equips can be obtained by monsters but it os VERY rare to drop. Treasure chests can drop all items of equipment in the game..
F. You can drop cards from monsters


The game goes up to lvl 99/50 base without transclass, with proper balances for the system. Characterizing itself as a hard classic server.

Everything can be achieved by playing, there is no form of pay to win.

The game has full PVM focus and has CUSTOMIZED WOE pvm events. It is very challenging, and very good to play with my friends. The inheritance system helps your dead character to leave items for the next ones to come.

This is really the server that needs support, it has an innovative approach, very different from everything I saw out there. It is not a server for players who want easy things, it is challenging and it is necessary to have completely different strategies than normal.

Another very positive point is that the accounts are made by request and interview, but it is very easy. This brings more security to players and control of the participating community and makes it easier to ban and deal with players who abuse illegal measures.

A final point is that all classes have important functions, this is insane as well. And it has support for playing on android too.

Sounds like a very unique server idea, at least for Ragnarok servers which have always lacked in forcing players to actually role-play together.
Sounds very appealing, although I'd have to learn more about how role-play is enforced here. I'd be disappointed if I joined and found most players to be simply grinding quests or whatever a "Leap of Fantasy" is for exp, instead of role-playing for exp.

Also, I don't mean to be condescending, but you're saying "no form of pay to win" while also saying players won't be subject to perma-death, only if they have a "Guardian Angel" item, which I'm guessing is bought with real money. That sounds like pay to win to me. Pay to not permanently die.

Otherwise it sounds great. Fantastic server idea here.
DOWN WITH MULTI-CLIENTING!

guardian angel gets in the game Normally And is account bound, you can't buy anything in the game for real money, no advantage is sold and everyone can have the same items. nothing is sold. whoever wants to make donations receives only one mount, which can be obtained by playing also and participates in a cosmetics draw.

most players do roleplay. roleplay players are rewarded with events reporting their adventures on discord.

This sounds really interesting! I love the concept!
I would like to have some more detailed and organized information about the server, do you mind telling me a few things?
  • What is the exp rate for job level? As for the base level exp, how much time playing is needed to reach, lets say, lv 50? Or how much base exp do you get per hour/minute?
  • What is the drop rate? You say that equipment is very hard to get, what does this mean, 1x rates? 0,5x rates? What about cards? What about other items?
  • Treasure chests are mentioned a few times, but where and how can I find them, how rare are they?
  • You say that all classes have important functions, does this mean they're customized? The server has edited skills?
  • What is this woe pvm you talk about, how does it work?
  • Does the server have other customizations? Are monsters the same as normal RO? Are they edited in any way: damage, health, defense, where they spawn, how much of them there are in a map, etc?
  • Roleplaying wise, does the server have a lore that players have to fit their characters and writing in? If not, how is role playing cohesive? Are there lore events in game that demand player participation? Are there lore events on the server's forums or discord?
Sorry for all the questions, but I'm really curious and afraid to invest my time in a bad project, even if it looks very promising. With that said, I'm looking forward to your answer, and quite possibly to joining the server and doing some hardcore roleplaying!

I am part of an RP guild on another server that is interested in this post. As a former server owner, I have a few questions though.
1. This is posted in the Server Reviews section. This implies that either the server is up and you are advertising your server or server idea and both imply this is in the wrong section.
2. The idea is solid, but if it is merely an idea then I think a post such as this promising so much is preemptive at best. If you do have a working server, I would be curious to know of a link to a working website (please refer to the post on how to make a failing RO pserver)
3. Permanent death is something that is very harsh and for an RP setting is problematic at best, same with hunger. You are not making an RP server, but a survival one. That is fine, just don't sell us a horse and call it a cow. In addition, I have tried to implement permadeath myself and come up with some issues in the past regarding interaction with the client. I am curious as to how you overcame them.
4. You waved a lot of vague positives, but have no definitive. On a server such as this, rates don't matter- but we do need an anchor as players. I would suggest at least a screenshot.
5.There are some clear grammatical errors which have me confused-
          F. You can drop cards from monsters - I can drop cards from monsters? I am not sure I understand.
          The game has full PVM focus and has CUSTOMIZED WOE pvm events- if the game has full pvm focus then what is a customized woe pvm event. Are you talking about world events?

Another very positive point is that the accounts are made by request and interview, but it is very easy. This brings more security to players and control of the participating community and makes it easier to ban and deal with players who abuse illegal measures.-This is...unique. You have security to keep people FROM joining the server. I would like to know more.
A final point is that all classes have important functions, this is insane as well- I'm not sure insane is what you meant. I would like to know what you meant. /no1

I searched the server listings and found the server here: https://ratemyserver.net/index.php?page=detailedlistserver&serid=21212&itv=6&url_sname=Ragnarok%20Roleplay%20Online
However... both the website and the discord server are a complete mess  /swt
Small bits of information all over and nothing that really tells me what I want to know, lack of information aside, the english mistakes (understandable, not everyone has the oportunity to learn english) and the complete mess turned me off a lot. Still waiting for OP to answer my questions, maybe I'll still join if I like what I see.

Hello. Well, this main post is a review of players of the game post by me here, nothing more. The main post is a review of the server in the view of the players, informing in general how it was playing.

Come on the questions.

1- Firstly, the game is Brazilian as the main language and second language to be able to receive people from the world, we use English, so there is a limitation in this regard.

2- The server is low rate. The exp base is quest like jobs + playing time. You receive exp base each 15 minutes played and Job 2x normally. Old classic 99/50 job 2 max ballance. No trans.

3 -Drop rate information does not need to be detailed, it is low. We aim for the player to discover for himself some mechanics and rates playing as in a table rpg and not mmorpg, the focus is not metagame, so the main community of players does not care, just know that it is not easy to get things , but everything can be achieved except mvp cards.

4- we are a personal server with account opening by request, and we prioritize the organization of the game for players. We are still getting started and we are getting support from players around the world.

5- Treasure chests are found inside castles during WOE PVM. during a PVM woe one of the game's castles can be invaded and found many treasures.

6- the classes have modifications, with more hp than normal. MVP has less hp than normal and has several limitations such as balancing. All monsters are aggressive.

7-We have roleplay as an active form based on players' lores, which can be rewarded. But players who don't want to do roleplay can play as a hardcore and survival game, extremely difficult and challenging.

8-Roleplay players play their characters, they are the majority of players.

9-We stayed in tests for 2 months, and we are ok. We don't want quantity of players, we want quality, and that's fine with our method of creating and controlling accounts all along. The community is GROWING every day as we wish.

10- all job classes are important, it means that all of them have at least one modification directly or indirectly that make them all useful at some point. Some custom skill ballance or feature like blacksmith who can craft a important item to enchant item, and others cases like Heal classes what are important to survival.

11-About English again, it really is the best we can do at the moment for anyone to be able to play, we have active players from all over the world, russia, singapore, canada and brazil, and we are happy with the acceptance and understanding of the players with this project.


12- We intend to go far with the project, but never lose the feeling of being close to the players as a family. we are not a server like most, we have a challenging and independent philosophy, and we belive in us.


I hope I have answered the questions. I did my best to do that.

So I've been playing on this Server for just one day but I have to say its one of the most unique and fun experiences I've had with around 15 years of RO!

You really have to check it out, like others already stated , things like a fixed Base EXP based on time spend and perma-death is some real thrilling stuff. You've never been that scared on south pront before.

Theres also systems like fishing, mining and a hunger system that needs you to think before going out to hunt.

Community is very helpful to newbies because the start can be rough. But theres always someone in Prontera to help ya out.

I'll add more things when I play for a longer time, but this is a highly recommended Server!

I'm currently on the server and I'm loving it. I believe that the idea is super innovative and its concept of RPG is different from everything I played.

I hope you can believe in the game and play this wonderful server.  /lv

there have been many changes in the last month, with many updates. so I came to update my review.

The roleplay is getting better and better, now it is possible to pvp, which gives a better immersion. the server's unique NEO system is also amazing, with unique items combined. is a ragnarok with a totally different proposal, making its gameplay more challenging.
