[Guide] Card Combination and Reinforcement



Wondering how to get [Normal +] or +1 cards? Want to combine your current cards into something exciting and new? Well, you've come to the right place!

Card Basics



Cards have a special border based on their rarity. These borders are important, because when combining cards you can only use other cards of the same level. These borders will also tell you which synthesis materials you need to use.

Card Combination & Reinforcement Materials



Card Enhanced Stone: Stone used for card reinforcement (+1, etc.) Level 50 Normal Card:10 Stones. Rare Card: 15 Stones. Epic Card: 20 Stones.



Card Coating Paper: Paper used for card reinforcement (+1, etc.) Each refinement attempt uses 1 Paper. This paper protects the card from being destroyed if the refinement fails. Available from the Kafra Shop for 200 KafraCash each.



Card Designated Synthesis: Used during card combination to select the card to turn Normal +, Rare +, or Epic + or combine to a new card. Available from the Kafra Shop for 200 KafraCash each or 800 KafraCash for 5.



Card Synthesis Stone: A card synthesis stone used for card combination of normal cards. This item can be purchased from the Card Master.



Special Card Synthesis Stone: A card synthesis stone used for card combination of rare cards.



Epic Card Synthesis Stone: A card synthesis stone used for card combination of epic cards. This item can be purchased from the Card Master.

Card Combination

You can combine cards to strengthen their stats or create new cards. To start, visit the Card Master and click on the Combine button.




Combining cards randomly. To begin combining cards randomly, place 5 different cards of the same level in the item combination window. . Once the circle of cards is complete, add the synthesis stone for the level of card you're using. For example, when combining normal cards, the result of the combination will be a [Normal +] version of one of the cards you have used, or a new normal card.

You will need: 5 Different Cards + Card Synthesis Stone. The quality of the Card Synthesis Stone must match your card level.

Combining cards with Card Designated Synthesis. When card designated synthesis is used, you can select one of the five cards to focus the combination on. For example, when combining normal cards, you can select one of the cards to become [Normal +] or a new, higher level card if the option is shown. When you select the card that you would like to [Normal +] it is highlighted with a golden border.

You will need: 5 Different Cards + Card Synthesis Stone + Card Designated Synthesis. The quality of the Card Synthesis Stone must match your card level.

Here is an example of combining normal cards using Card Designated Synthesis. As you can see, two card options are shown in the center window. A [Normal +] version of the card selected, and a rare quality card. The successful result is random. Make sure you check to see what the [Normal/Rare/Epic +] version of the card is. On some cards, stats are increased overall. On others, some stats are reduced and new, different stats are added.



Note: [Normal +], [Rare +], and [Epic +] cards can not be used in card combination. Additionally, if you combine a card that is +'ed through reinforcement, it will not retain its reinforcement level when it is combined. This means you will want to combine your card to a [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +] before you begin reinforcing it.

Card Reinforcement

You can reinforce any card you own. It doesn't have to be [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +], but please remember that once you + a card with reinforcement, you will not be able to make it a [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +] without losing that reinforcement level. You can begin reinforcing cards by clicking on the Card Master's Reinforcement button.



Zeny Cost. Card reinforcement has a different zeny cost based on the level of the card and the reinforcement level. Each reinforcement attempt costs zeny, and after each successful reinforcement level the cost will increase.

Card Enhanced Stones. The number of Card Enhanced Stones needed will depend on the level and rarity of the card. Level 50 Normal Card:10 Stones. Rare Card: 15 Stones. Epic Card: 20 Stones.

Card Coating Paper. Card reinforcement can fail. Card Coating Paper protects the card from being destroyed, and will occasionally prevent the card from downgrading when it fails. Typically, if the card reinforcement fails your card will lose all reinforcement.

Reinforcing Process. To begin reinforcing your card, click the Reinforcement button at the Card Master. Drag the card that you want to reinforce into the top slot. Card Reinforcement Stones are placed in the bottom left slot. Card Coating Paper is placed in the bottom right slot. Press Start Reinforcement to begin.

Here is an example reinforcement on a level 50 [Epic +] card. A message is displayed when the reinforcement is successful. Failure messages are only shown as system notifications.



Homework. You can use an item database to research what each reinforcement level will provide your card and its success rate. The following is an example for the Osiris Card [Epic +]:

Based on alot of the reviews I didn't expect this game to be very good but I downloaded it anyway. I'm so very glad I did. This turned out to be in my opinion a very fun game. I thought I'd play a couple hours just to see what it was all about. I ended up playing the entire day! The following are my personal opinions and from the viewpoint of a new player. It must be noted that I've never played the original Ragnarok.
PROS:
You can have multiple characters. ( 4 by default )
Crafting is useful and fun to advance and collect Items
Gameplay is fairly easy. Did my 1st dungeon solo on day 1. Not alot of aggro for my Magician at least not in the lower level areas. Higher levels may be different.
Graphics are very good and cute
Great community! A random player gave me for free 4 Medium Bags to increase my inventory space. Thank you!
Chat is active with Trades and people looking for a Party to join.
You earn special gifts for logging in and also for staying online. YAY!
CONS:
Music can get a little boring but it does change in different areas.
Takes a long time to regen Health and Spell Points.
Potions seem to have a long cool down too.

I recently had a bad experience with one player regarding verbal assault and harrassment. What made it worse is the action made by the CMs. My first complaint was ignored, and the second complaint felt like I was the one to blame and didn't really focus on the main issue.

Many people hate this game. Many people say that other MMORPGs are waaay better. I am NOT one of those.

They say that your first MMORPG is shaping your online playing. My first was WoW and I absolutely hated it. The free world was too much for me and I needed something I could explore properly. Several years later I bumped into Ragnarok Online 2 on Steam. I was a fresh Steam user and the game had been out for 2-3 weeks when I saw it. Since I have seen the anime Ragnarok: The Animation, I eagerly downloaded it and set forth.

As an inexperienced player, the game lead me along perfectly. Some things came along the way, but that made me feel like I learned something and that I grew a little more into the universe. The starter area is gorgeous and I LOVE the atmosphere there. The maps are limited, but leads somewhere. You can't get lost and there's a lot of people around to help and boost you. I have never met nicer people in an online game before.

Do you like to play solo in an online game? It's cool, you can solo your way up to the Master Levels (you might need some random help with some dungeon here and there, but no need). Do you like to play with others? Join your friends or make new ones as you play. How you play is your choice.

People also say that this is too much grinding. I say it's the same way in every game like this. You just need to find the one that suits you the best.

As you can see, I have played this game. A lot. Over 1000 hours and still counting. I vote recommend on this game, since I have a special connection with it. If you find the same, is up to you. I just hope you try it out before trashing it. But know this: I have still to find a better online community than this.

Join the family!

Ragnarok Online 2: The Extremely Generic MMO Experience.

I remember the good old days of Ragnarok Online, with its cartoony top-down anime art style, cool spell/skill animations, and overall fun appeal. So naturally, when I heard there was to be a sequel, a 3D sequel at that, I was ecstatic.

-Insert several years of waiting here-

Then came the day when I heard Ragnarok Online 2 was available for play. I was stoked. What followed was roughly 45 hours of the most generic game I've ever played and refused to finish.

Where do I even start? I can safely say that I've played my fair share of ♥♥♥♥♥♥mes, reaching into experiencing roughly 30+ different games. In the ones where I could make a character specific (Such as Mage, Warrior, etc), I would choose to make the healer. The most sought after, rarely played, and hardest to solo of them all. I also had a few other friends who were playing RO2 alongside myself. Well, over the internet of course.

The whole time we were playing, it just felt like a tedious run here, do this, run back kind of game. At first, I wanted to give RO2 the benefit of the doubt, but after hitting the 2 hour mark, I could see, and sadly admit to myself, that this game was just not that fun, even with other people!

During solo play, I found myself just mashing the 1 key to do my basic "Holy Light" attack, or whatever the skill was called. I barely gained another useful attacking skill for practically the entire time I played.

Playing with the group however was a more enjoyable experience. At least then, I was able to use my Heal, Revive, and Buff skill.

One of the cool things this game did have was the Card System. Almost every monster in the game would drop a card. These cards could be equipped; up to five. Certain sets would give you bonuses, and it gave the game a somewhat Pokemon-esque feel.

While the quests were generic, there was always a plentiful amount. Story, Side, Dungeon, Monster Hunters, and more. You never needed to worry about needing something to do.

Something Ragnarok Online 2 does that I absolutely LOATHE is having items, equipment, and mounts that had time-limits. Yep, you read correctly. Time-limits. The worst possible feature a game can have.

Oh, and the class change in this game is nowhere near as awesome as the first game. You finish the quest and the person just says: Congrats, you're now a X, whereas in the first one, you had a light beam down on you and your clothes would change.

Eventually I just got to a point where I said "I'm done." RO2 eventually becomes more of a chore than a game.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quests: As basic as they can get; Split into the trio of: Go Kill X, Talk To X, Gather X.

Character Customization: Limited. Pretty much just Hair, Face, and Eyes.

Graphics: While it's a nice touch to have Ragnarok venture into the 3D world, it lacks the detail of the original. From character models to environments to monsters, everything is very, VERY, bland and lackluster. One thing I will give RO2 is that it is quite colorful.

Gameplay: Auto-Attack or Mash 1st Skill in HotBar.

Monsters: RO2 definitely took the easy way out with its creatures, having many of the same monster models with varying color schemes.

Sound: Nothing really stands out as bad, yet nothing stands out as great.

Fun Factor: 4/10
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bright and Colorful settings, A unique card system, and some interesting boss fights just aren't enough to save this overly generic, bland MMO.

I have been playing this game for since it was released on Steam.

Seen everything this game has to offer with a max level character, level 85 (ML35.)[ATM] With the new content being released soon, there will be more adventure's and areas to explore. I am addicted to this game with nearly 30 characters scattered throughout various accounts and have experienced every single class available in the game. Seen the ups and downs of the game. I've decided to stick by this game for better or worse.

Everyone that has reviewed this game in the past has experienced some unfortunate bugs that have been long since patched. If you haven't given this game a try and are going by the reviews, judge this game for yourself. This review might get a ton of thumbs down but whatever.
________________________________________________________________

Due to numerous people asking for me to go more in depth with this review, here we go.

---HISTORY---

2 years ago this game was released as Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second, a wonderful & more challenging time. Everything was kind of difficult to do and most of the time people rejected you because of not having a specific amount of health for raid dungeons.

September 12, 2013, they released the Noel class.

December 2013, (can't remember the specific date like the previous one) this game was renamed to Ragnarok Online 2: Advent of Valkyrie introducing Master Level. ***[Side Note, master level is pretty much rebirth on RO1 but ONLY your display level is reset back to 1 (51).]*** With master level, the older content became easy to do. Until the ramped up the difficultly on the raid dungeons, still soloable if you have the right gears and junk. That same year, the korean server closed.

October 2014, the SEA server merged with us making the game iRO2 (International Ragnarok Online 2) and a sperate server called "Freyja."

July 28, 2015, the TW server merging with Freyja.

---UPDATE---

The last major update was the remake of Forgotten Payon and boosting the level cap to 85 (ML35). In August they will be releasing Jawaii, the honeymoon place from RO1. Awhile back they said that a marriage system would not be added with Jawaii but according to the "Will you marry me?" event on the forums, it might be added. (Ovvvvvver jooooooyed)

---GAMEPLAY---

***People have complained that it just a clone of WoW. I have not played nor will ever play WoW so I do not know about that. There are folks on the forums here on steam saying that the camera and movement is terrible. Everyone will exerience different things according to their machines and their connection to the server.***

The basic levels, 1-50 are so easy to fly through combat level and professional levels alike. There are EXP events every weekend and sometimes during the weekdays to help players with grinding. Level 51-85 aka ML1-ML35, is just grinding of course you can do the Morroc and Dayr Desert quests to boost for MP this could be the main questline or all of the Daily Quests. This is where the EXP events mentioned before comes into play making grinding so much less painful. The current end game gears is Eddga, the "powerful" gear which was specifically designed for PvP. Most of my friends and myself, have stuck with the previous end game gears Cazar & Himmelmez. Now for the what you can do after reaching the max level, anything that you want to do. PvP in WoE (Guild vs Guild, located in Prontera & Morroc), helping low leveled players, collecting items, taking part in Trivia for prizes, farming for items, gears or pets and so on.

If this is not in depth enough for you, just say so. With so much experience in this game I just picked key points and just touched on specific topics. I apologize if this is unorganized, this is my thought process.

The GM promised us capes for an guild event - never delievered,
not only that - they actually handed out free Egg DNA pieces to their friends,
there was a lot of proof on the forum,
many ppl quit,
too many bug,
not balanced,
P2W

Would not recommend
RO1 rating 9,5/10
RO2 rating 6/10

P.S - Look at my god damn HR recorded and you will know how much time i spent on this game, never spent a cent - always trying my best - but this game has too many god damn flaws.
