I’m Still Playing Ragnarok Online

I’m back in Ragnarok Online! This time, I’m playing in the International Ragnarok Online (iRO) server, which is based in the US. Last year, Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO) closed. Good thing that the characters were migrated to iRO. I was able to migrate most of my characters and I have 5 accounts (I forgot to migrate 1 which contains my assassin cross and crusader). I was on hiatus for a year since pRO closed mostly because I find iRO very laggy. After a year, I’m back and iRO is now playable (no longer laggy). In fact, I can attend sieges with ease.

When the pRO accounts were migrated to iRO, they created a new server for these characters – Thor. The only problem I’ve encountered is that my zennies were wiped from all of my characters and I lost some items (like counter dagger for my soul linkers). Also, my geneticist’ skills were reset and he no longer have cannon. He’s 150, vitality-intelligence (vit-int) and I don’t know how to level him anymore without using the expensive Acid Bomb (AB) skill. Everything else is intact and are safe in my Kafra storage.

The past few days, I reviewed my characters’ equipment and I realized that it’s all been old school stuff (Rune-Midgard days before the discovery of Schwarzwald Republic and Arunafeltz). I also checked Prontera and most of the items and equipments being vended are new to me. I really have a lot of reading to do from the Warp Portal forums. I need to get familiarized on these new equipments. I also need to know what monsters are dropping the latest equipment. I have a lot of grinding to do since the level cap was raised from 150 to 175. I have the following characters to level-up:

Level 150 Geneticist, Mechanic, Archbishops (2 battles and 1 full-support), Rune Knight (RK), Royal Guard and Scholar

131 Ranger

100+ Kagerou/Oboro (Ninja), Gunslingers

99 Rogue, Wizard, Agi Knight, Soul Linkers (I have 4), Hunter, High Priests, Dancer, Assassin, Star Gladiator, Alchemist

60+ Bard, Wizard

Job 50 Archer, Acolyte

I’m not a botter by the way. All my characters were manual and the product of playing pRO for 12 years (2003-2015). Now I have to kill a thousand more monsters to reach level 175 (yellow aura). It’s my biggest problem these days since I can’t think of any other leveling place except Rachel Sanctuary. There are also fewer players of Ragnarok now for Endless Tower (ET). The current population of Thor is between 400 to 800 players.

Since iRO is based in the United States (for North American clients), the premium service is now using US dollars. That will be way expensive for me to buy Field Manuals and Bubble Gums. The daily Alberta Quest in pRO is not present in iRO. I also can’t find any Eden quest for characters level 100 and above. I need to read a lot from the Warp Portal forum for smarter ways to level-up my characters. Overall, I’m happy to be back in Ragnarok Online.

By the way, I was able to change one of my Gunslingers into Rebellion (next job). I’ve also seen the future job advances for Soul Linkers and Star Gladiators as well as revision to Prontera and improvement to player interface. Gravity (the maker of Ragnarok Online) still has a lot of plans for this MMORPG. Indeed, Ragnarok Online 1 is far from ending.

Ragnarok Online Valkyrie Server

Yesterday around 6:00 PM a new server called Valkyrie opened to the public. It’s using artwork from the Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO) and it seems to be a legit server. Until I spoke to GM Aeon (former GM of Level Up Games) and he confirmed it’s a private server posing as a legit pRO server.

screenValkyrie001

Anyway, I still spent a few hours leveling an Acolyte. It was fun and it really brought back memories on how I fell in love with the game in 2003 when the Official Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO) was launched here in the Philippines. It was really a huge success back then. There were really A LOT of people who played the game. Almost all towns and leveling places are filled with Novices, Archers, Acolytes, Thieves, Swordsmen, Magicians and Merchants.

I took the personality test again and to my surprise, the Non-Playable Character (NPC) at the Training Grounds suggested that I took a Merchant job. I still changed my character into an Acolyte. When I first played the Official pRO in 2003 the NPC suggested that I take an Acolyte job but I still changed into an Archer. In later years, I realized that the Priest job is my most-played character/job in pRO.

Playing today in this private server even for a few hours (I wasn’t able to consume all the 5 free Job Hunting Manuals each 30 minutes duration), brought back fond memories of my early days in pRO – Training Grounds, Payon Cave, Payon Town, Prontera, Spores, Willows, etc. I still play Ragnarok once in a while. The good thing about official servers is that if one closes, it will be migrated to another one. Just like what happened to pRO. All player database were transferred to the International Ragnarok Online (iRO) server and I was able to keep my online items (except for zennies which were all wiped out).

I played the Official Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO) for 13 years and attended as much events as possible. Those years playing this online game are some of the most memorable and happiest years of my life. Thank you pRO!

This season, I’ll be playing for Hyperion (New Loki) and its allies like Hellraios, Heroes, Cerberus among others. Hopefully, we’ll end up as finalist to the server elimination.

Blazzer Card Not Working

Blazzer Card

I recently tried the accessory that has a Blazzer Card on it. It’s suppose to drop a Food item whenever a monster is killed. I even used a Bubble Gum while leveling my new Assassin Cross. To my disappointment, the Blazzer Card is not working!

Not a single Food item was dropped in the 30 minutes that I played. I hope Level Up! Games could look into this bug.

X3 Mod XP and X2 Drop

It's a good thing that Level Up! Games, local publisher of Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO), extended the current promo (3 times experience and 2 times drop rate) for another week until December 5, 2012.

I'm currently playing my 3rd priest in Valhalla server and she's currently level 99/62. Yes, she's my first chixilog priest (or shall I say priestess). She's been partying with all sorts of job class in Lava Dungeon level 2, Magmaring, and Juperos level 1. She's also doing the 3 different Alberta Daily Quests.

Good thing it's my rest day tomorrow until Sunday. Hopefully I'll be able to level her job to 70 and then change to Arch Bishop. Wish me luck!

Are you also playing in Valhalla, pRO?

Hi! My name is Elmer and I'm a Ragnarok player since 2003. I first played in Loki then migrated to other servers like Sarah, Lydia and then settle in Thor (now Valhalla). I've been playing in Thor/Valhalla since the server opened.

I'm a fan of the soul linker job class and so far, I have 4 soul linkers. I have both battle soul linkers (agi-str) and Esma linkers (int-dex). I had great time playing soul linkers until the 3rd jobs were released. The playing field changed drastically and soul linkers, as well as ninjas, star gladiators, taekwon, and gunslingers, were almost eradicated during sieges.

Anyway, that's another story. Right now, I'm back playing an arch bishop. I'm really into support characters. I'm also a big fan of Dee and he's my inspiration on creating this blog. I hope I could maintain this as long as there is Ragnarok Online.

I have tons of screenshots to post and stories to tell about my Ragnarok adventures in Valhalla server, Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO). Stick around for more!
