Ragnarok Classic Server is Coming!
As so many of our in-the-know community has realized, we are launching a Classic RO server soon. This server will be run as a completely new server and will using the original game settings and physics. Ragnarok has a long history, and along that history major updates have happened to expand the world, game systems and ultimately even the game settings that you play with; this biggest update was "Renewal". Renewal is a wonderful system with what new stories and classes you can play with, but it is of course different than before.

The planned date of Launch is June 29th, but that is subject to change as the setup and opportunities clarify.

The yet-to-be-named Classic Server is to offer that choice of gameplay between Original and the Renewed. And that has us and many players really excited for this opportunity to play like they used to!

Some of the standout features to expect are:
  • Maps and quests available will be around 10.3, which is Schwarzwalt updates with Einbroch, Juno etc. Arunzfelt and the sinister plot of Satan Morocc will not be hatched yet.
  • At Launch you can change to 1st, 2-1 and 2-2 classes.
  • WoE 1 will be opened up after a reasonable number of Characters get to moderate high level, expected to be 30-45 days.
  • Transcending will be available later still, after many characters are maxed out at 99/50.
  • Expanded classes: Gunslinger, Ninja, Taekwon Kid, Soul Linker and Taekwon Master will come out shortly after Transcendent classes.
  • Many of the high level maps and quests will not be available until after Trans classes are available, this is to allow us to expand the game as we go, rereleasing those contents as the server can handle them.
  • Highest Tiered Gear will drop from monsters in Tradable Boxes. Once the box is opened the gear will be account bound. This is to keep those high tiered items limited to those high Tiered characters capable of acquiring them rather than being taken/shared among many. This also will keep them valuable in the economy for a much longer period of time. This feature will not be noticed for a very long time as those monsters that have the items will not be available at the start.
We are still working on the logistics behind the server, to determine if VIP will be possible, and what systems and rates we will adjust to. More information will be released in this blog page as we iron out the details. Of course if you already have an RO account you can access the classic server, and play on both the Renewal servers and the Classic Server too! So bring your friends and join us for what is sure to be good time!

* This will be updated as more info is released, so check every day!
