No bots
Minimal Cash shop (cosmetics, name change, stat resets are ok, exp books and consumables are not)
Minimal customization.
Single Client only
@autoloot enabled
Pre-Renewal

Tbh there is none that fits the criteria at the moment. Either the servers have custom, dead population or you get vip rates with donations.
Plus you will want to filter out untrustworthy servers that will likely close and reopen using new names frequently.
So yep, there is none.

Yeah man
I'm looking for this type as well.

At the moment, Payon Stories is fitting pretty well for me. Not 100% satisfied, but pretty close.
Like you mentioned for Timelines, there's a bit more customization and departure from Pre Renewal than I'd like in Payon Stories. Their custom events, custom Payon town, custom dungeon(plural?) with custom enemies and custom MVP in there, post-Renewal costumes, and post-Renewal client with some replaced BGM tracks.
Not much else customized beyond that which is nice.
To be honest I really like the zeny storage Bank in the modern RO client. That alone makes up for it feeling too Renewalish. Being allowed to trade your own Zeny between your characters is super nice.

Similarly to Ragnarok Timelines, Payon Stories has no bots there, no cash shop at all, and enhanced sitting SP/HP regeneration, but it does also restrict running multiple clients at once.
Seems like they're both not implementing transcendent classes for whatever reason. At least not yet.

What's your opinion on implementing Rebirth?
I like the rebirth skills and sprites, but not the Renewal ones.
Single-client servers encourage player interaction, discourage soulless min-maxing, and properly allow support characters to find partners and parties.
Dual-client and multi-client servers are a sin against Odin.

Classic is classic. When they implementing rebirth, that means they are not classic anymore.  /heh
A person who loves the classic and pre-renewal closed-to-official server experience.
Classic mRO 1x/1x/1x - Classic server Episode 6. Using latest rAthena emulator without modifications.

Thanks, I'll give Payon Stories a try.  1x rates doesn't seem too bad with all the class buffs I read about, as well as the sp regeneration.  I'm happy to play with single or multiple clients.  I prefer rebirth because it adds classes like Soul Linker and Super Novice but I'm fine playing without them.

If you're looking for a brand new server, created May 24th 2024, you might want to try out Valkyrie Legend RO despite only 40 players currently online, and despite it being hosted in Canada?
I'm assuming Canada cause they used a Canadian flag under the "Main Ethnic or Language:" section, but not sure.

I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like it might be even less customized than Payon Stories.
I'll try it out specifically because it aligns with my values of single-client gameplay.

I looked at Valkyrie but don't like the poring coins.  Otherwise it seems great.

Agreed. Something like that doesn't seem to equally benefit all playstyles and is too custom.

Looking at the wiki, the zero version bowling bash is kind of strange to me. For information about other settings, I suggest you browse their discord.

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.
