Welcome to our new friends from pRO!

We are happy to welcome a new group of players to the iRO community, who are joining us from the pRO server, which has ceased operation this week. We are migrating the accounts of pRO players who have signed up for an opt-in program to our soon-to-come Thor server.

This new server and the migration will be happening at the end of April, so keep an eye out for announcements when we get closer to server open. Thor will be based on Renewal mechanics with WoE times that are more convenient for players in the Southeast Asian region.

Maintenance notes for 11/19

Both Servers

Thanksgiving Quest 2014: You are asked to help Turpeco, who is competing in a local Turkey-Peco Beauty Contest. He wants to thin out the ranks of the competition. For adventurers level 50 and above, he can be found near the southern Inn in Morroc on Chaos and Loki.

The prize for completing the quest on Renewal is the Indian Feather Headband, on Classic players will be able to choose that or the Vintage Orc Helm as a prize.

To fix a bug where players could destroy the barricade before the guardian stones are down these two areas highlighted in the picture can no longer be attacked through. This will not affect the ability of players to sling spells to and from the platforms.
