Hello RO2 Players!

Early on Wednesday morning, a critical part of our network’s connection to the world failed. This caused all WarpPortal titles, websites, and forum to be inaccessible, as well as cut off our office internet connection. Our tech team and ISP worked to replace the failed part as quickly as possible, but the result was that for several days players on all our titles were unable to play or connect with us.

No data was impacted during this outage, as it was an issue with our internet connection line. Your characters and data are safe.

As our thanks and apologies for bearing with us during the outage, we’ll be sending your inboxes some goodies:
  • A 7 Day Elite Membership Card
  • A 7 Day Card Album
  • 3 Master Battle Manual Orders (24 hours)

These items were distributed today to all active players for compensation for the downtime.

Additionally, since our Happy Hour Box Week was impacted during this time, we will be running a second Happy Hour Box Week this month from May 18th to 25th. This week will follow an EXP boost and Dapara event scheduled for next week’s update on the 6th.

We’d like to express our sincerest apologies for the inconveniences this caused, and want to thank you for your passion for playing Ragnarok Online 2, which you’ve expressed through your messages to us via social media during this process.

We are happy to say RO2 is back up and accessible now! Happy playing!

Have a creative idea for a quest? Want to be immortalized in game? Now is your time to shine!
20 daily quests will be chosen from player entries to be put into the world of RO2. The top 5 entries will have their creator’s character made into an NPC that will issue out the winning quest lines!

How to enter:
Create a daily quest. This must be a repeatable quest line like the ones found on daily boards around Rune-Midgarts.
Choose how you’d like your NPC to look. Put on your finest outfit and screenshot it! Host this image on a free image service such as photobucket.
Provide the desired location of your NPC. Suggested locations: Morroc or Dark Whisper area.

All quests entries must be related to Dark Whisper and use monsters from that area or items already existing in game if your quest involves item collection.
Please keep 20-30 ML characters in mind when setting up what needs to be done to complete your quest. Rewards are up to you to choose, but will be subject to development’s approval.
As always, keep your entries clean and fun. A little cheeky humor is fine, but no adult language or themes will be accepted.

Entries will be accepted through the entry form only.
One entry per person.
