Drop Rate Improvements for Forgotten Payon, Dark Whisper, Tomb of Osiris, and Dayr Desert!
In continuing to resolve issues we've found, and feedback we've received from players, we're targeting the drop rates throughout Master Level content prior to Jawaii. In this week's update, we've gone back and increased drop rates for certain items or item types throughout older Master Level zones that we felt were too low in the following zones:
  • Forgotten Payon
  • Dark Whisper
  • Tomb of Osiris
  • Dayr Desert

We are continuing to review, develop, and test changes in other areas of the game including experience, random chance rates, and other areas. If you have an opinion on what should be next, feel free to create a forum topic to discuss it or contact one of our Community Managers! We are always paying attention and love to hear your feedback.

Visit the large, capitol city of Prontera, form a party and explore the underwater Sea Temple dungeon, or set up a shop and earn a living for your character by accepting a job as an Alchemist, Artisan, Blacksmith, or Chef.

  • Revisit Familiar Lands and Creatures: Visit the famous capitol city of Prontera, battle the evil Baphomet, or run through fields filled with Porings. Rediscover the areas, allies, and monsters that you knew before in their new form!
  • Create & Customize Your Adventurer: Level one of the five base classes to the next tier and choose a specialization, explore and collect the armor and weapons of your Midgardian, and place your own, unique stamp on the world of Ragnarok 2.
  • Craft Items and Open a Store: Immerse yourself in being an Alchemist, Artisan, Blacksmith, or Chef, create a variety of useful potions, armor, weapons, or food, and then open a store and sell your wares to other players!
  • PvE and PvP Available to Any Player Type: Battle against the monsters and villains of Midgard, or test your mettle against other players in the Arena. Take it a step further at level 10, and try your hand at the coliseum for five stages of brutal battle! There are tons of opportunities available for solo players, groups, and even guilds who want to take part in PvP!

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!

WARNING: PERSONAL OPINION

positives

- character customization
- easy to play controls
- decent graphics
- interesting lore if you actually read what the NPC's say to you
- fun with friends
- easy to advance until around level 35

negativies

- excessive grinding (unless you like that sort of thing)
- you can't drop certain quests like events and stuff, they just sit their and clog up space
- difficult to play solo
- while the story changes and I find it interesting, the quests still end up being almost the same thing a lot of the time


I see a lot of people complaining that it's P2W, but I've never run into this problem. I don't participate in PVP so I don't know if that's where the problem lies, but I'm master level and I have yet to spend a single cent on this game. I would not pay for this game, it's not worth it. But since it's free, I think it's fun. I wish there was a "meh" option instead of a thumbs up or down. It's fun for awhile, but once you hit around level 35 as I mentioned earlier it becomes much more of a challange and less of a game.

To be honest, I'd rather go play the classic Ragnarok Online. This game, RO2, does not resemble the greatness that was Ragnarok Online. This barely fits the shoe of its predecessor, with its lazy battle system, quests and lore. It's a shallow 3D version that simply does not live up to the name.

Don't let my playtime fool you, I've played the non-steam version of RO2 for almost 200+ hours. If you're new to Ragnarok, then I recommend you go play the classic MMO, Ragnarok Online.

P.S - Screw the KAFRA shops.

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.

~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.

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.

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!

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.
