One of my favorite MMORPGS. Beautiful settings. It repeats itself a bit, but almost every MMORPG ends up doing that. I'm honestly surprised more people don't play, the server is a bit empty so it's a hard to find people to do dungeons with. If only more people knew about it! I definately recommend this to others.

I downloaded this game with fond memories of the countless hours I spent in the first Ragnarok Online, its beautiful cell shaded art, iconic character and enemy sprites, and generally fun game mechanics. The first RO was always a little broken, but it was very fun and unique so its issues were forgiven.

Of course Ragnarok Online 2 had to evolve its graphics and gameplay mechanics, however I am very dissapointed with the direction the game developers took the sequel. The art style did not make a good transition to 3D models, and the iconic gameplay was dropped in favour of making the game into another World of Warcraft clone. Rather than a sequel, it may as well be a completely different game from a completely different developer with the "Ragnarok Online" title tacked on.

If you were drawn to this game by nostalgia for the previous installment, I would recomend you pass on this one.

This game has it's pros and cons, but all around, it's not an absolute ♥♥♥♥ game and it's good enough to get people willing to try MMOs, into that kinda scene, it's a pretty good starter game instead of committing to something hardcore or that needs money to play.

I see SO many people ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on this game becaue it's not as good as the original ragnarok game, which honestly, you should never expect a 'sequel' to an MMO to be just like the original

Aside from that, all I really have to say is that, despite what people say, it's a pretty decent game for it only being such a low GB game. I've played Tera, and as fun as that can be, this game, honestly has kept me more interested in it, whether it was the story given at the beginning between both races, and then merging into one big one, or the diversity of the classes, decently fast loading screens. actual gameplay in itself (although it IS tab targeting), and the difference between places til you hit ML.

Yes, this game has it's flaws, but that's mainly within the community of players; A lot of them are arrogant, mainly holding this "im better than you" mentality over people, especially in certain guilds. Yes, there are glitches, and the game gets boring with the unending grindfest when you hit ML, (which i have a ML24 priest, ML 12 crec, and 5 other MLs between 1 - 5 so don't assume I have no idea what I'm talking about with this).

BUT, once you get past the arrogance of other players, and find decent people to group up with every so often to take on dungeons and go gear hunting, the game can be really fun. Sure, they could use some content updates accessible for lower level players that don't have the time to grind to ML40, as well as the content for those that are ML40. But developing a game takes time.

And for people complaining about P2W, you can accomplish SO much without needing to pay a single penny. I've gotten over 40k gold, full OSI gear and pretty damn far in the game without spending any money on it, since I don't believe in dropping money on a free game, it's just not how I do, props to those that do though, good on them.

But paying money doesn't automatically make you a better player than those that don't. And to get far in the game and get the things you need without putting money in, DOES take patience and time and you can do so much without needing money. But a lot of people are hot-heads that just want to jump all these levels so they can say they're better than others, without putting in the time, it ain't gonna happen on an empty wallet, buddy. So yes, if you do want to get to high levels without putting much work in, then you do gotta pay to do so, but if you want to get there without doing so then stop whining about how it's 'unfair' and put the work in. lmao

As much as I love this game, the playerbase can get aggravating, which is why it's best to turn off all chat features and just ignore literally everyone in game if possible.

It has it's pros and cons, it's buggy sometimes, but for a free game, it's not absolutely horrible and unplayable. There's plenty of games out there that are worse. (like Echo Of Soul, that game is ♥♥♥♥.)

I can certainly say it was better before they merged the two servers into one, allowing less lag from people hanging out in the big cities, Prontera being the laggiest since that's where a vast amount of players are on any given channel. And yes, but over the past couple of years, it has improved on itself and added more content than from when I very first started playing it, which is more than what a lot other free MMOs can say. There's things that can be improved on, such as leveling out the classes, but all around, it's not a bad game and it gets more fun once you get past Izulde Hill (imho). But to each their own.

Forces you to create a new account on startup. Refuses to let you use the login information of a pre-existing account

This is all that pops up when you try to start the game. As you can see instead of being a proper launcher it's a account creation slip.

Ragnarok Online 2 is pretty controversial among Ragnarok fans, I find most dont like it. That being said I myself dont dislike the game, even if it does have a good deal of pay to win features. I feel like it might have actually been better off if it had not used the Ragnarok IP, it probably would not have gotten so much hate if it just did its own thing. I find most of the hate really is just because the Ragnarok name got "dragged through the mud" so to speak.

Now, that being said I feel like if you are not familiar with old Ragnarok, you might find Ragnarok Online 2 much more enjoyable, especially if you dont mind grind or pay to win in your anime styled MMO. I have really mixed feelings about RO2 but I know some people do enjoy it. its definitely not the worst MMO on Steam.

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 MMO games, 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.

~3 out of 10~

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.

Stay away from this game. It had a lot of potential when it first arrived here on Steam despite early showings of a pay2win model. Unfortunately, despite all of our hopes, the game did indeed decide to milk us for all we're worth. The classes were extrememly unablanced the last time I played and other than my own guild, the community was possibly one of the worst I had ever had the misfortune to play with.

I wouldn't touch this game again if they paid me.

I've never experienced another MMO with this many bugs.

First, in order to log in with Steam there is a separate launcher from the game. This only works half the time and there is no way to manually log in. After every update it stops working or sometimes it just stops working for no apparent reason. Second, quests are bugged. I've had a main storyline quest just break with no way to recover it and no other quests available, effectively making the entire character useless. Google revealed that there are several quests in particular that have been broken for years without anyone working on them. Third, the prices for items are different depending if you are on the Warp Portal website or if you're on Steam. The best deals are on their site. Also, some items expire after a couple of days (which is bad if you can't log in half of the time.)

The game has been doctored so that Warp Portal can make more money. In the original Korean servers, there are quite a few Tiger mounts that you could purchase for in game money. All of these have been removed and put in a cash shop were you have a CHANCE at getting them permamently in a box. (There is only one mount available that does not require real money.) Costumes are not permament either. Most costumes expire after 30 days and you need to buy extenders to keep it. Both these items cost real money. If you want a permament costume the only way to get it is by more chance items, or by getting a lot of rare stones to play a pyramid game (which has an extrememly low chance of getting an item.) Inventory / Bank space is severely limited. Only 'medium' bags are dropped / purchasable which hardly have any slots. You will get these at level 10. If you want actual space, you need to buy bags from the cash shop. RO2 may not be a 'pay to win' but it sure is a 'pay to do anything fun' sort of game. Server population is pretty low. No one seems to be socializing. In fact, all the social interaction I had was a creepy guy hitting on me. So, if you play MMOs in hopes of finding some new buddies to talk too, you won't find them here.

If you insist on plaything this game, do not do it through Steam. Go to the site itself, or better yet find another company / private server. Warp portal is not doing a good job integrating RO2 with Steam. If the game actually worked as intended I might suggest it for someone looking for a casual game to play with friends (if you don't mind old school rpg grinding) but since Warp portal provides such a terrible service, I suggest trying one of Aeria Games' anime MMOs instead. They have a cash shop too, but they are more fair about what they give you.

Overall RO2 is a HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT and I am not saying this because it is different from the first game. I am saying this because of the bugs, Warp portal's poor choice of business model and all the issues I've been having. I've played a ton of f2p mmos and none have quite been this bad. You have been warned!
