Hello Boys and Girls

im New2Ro.

Image


im kind of new to this game and want to tell you my story/Adventures i will have here on originsRo. (/kis)

Hope you will have abit fun in reading my storys and moments of learning more in this Game.

Keep in mind this is only a fun project - Kind of Story telling / Role Playing - but if we see us ingame, feel free to talk to me and join my Adventure! (/no1)



Prologue + Plot:



While cleaning my basement, i found a old gaming magazine with a CD inside.

Image Image

Ragnarok Online

i remembered all those nice talks from my old Buddy Kevin about this game back in the days.
He played that game quite alot. And everytime we met in those old days, he talked about how great that Ragnarok game is.

in the past i was never into PC gaming - so back then i didnt cared much.

But now i got some free time IRL, so i was curious and tried to install it.

Unfortunately the CD didnt worked anymore, damn Windows 10 *grrrr*


---------------
So next time i met Kevin, i told him about my recent basement discovery.

And he was like:
"Aw BUDDY- Ragnarok was rly a game that i played with pure heart and soul - but you know - RealLife hits hard, and i wasnt able to play it for awhile."
"a old RO friend of mine - just told me about a really good RO server called originsRo (oRO)- you should try that - i dont have the time anymore for that stuff"

"But they told me oRo had ONE FLAW - it lacks on new content, they told me theres not much to do untill they bring the "Trans/Rebirth update" live. they are working on it thou.
So soon (tm) you will be able to play the whole Ragnarok Game on oRo."



WOW THAT SOUNDS JUST PERFECT FOR ME!!

I dont know this game yet- so little content seems to be just right to learn more about this game!

So Kevin and i had a short talk about how to start Ragnarok, like Stats, leveling on Monsters and that he recommend me to start as a Mage and Acolyte as "Buff" couple first.


--------------
As i came home again - i downloaded oRo and created a char!

Image

Image

and i must confess- this game really looks cute. i like the comic 2d/3d style - its kind of oldschool - nice!

The first map was really beautiful - yet really empty. is this normal?
i remembered that Kevin's friends told him about the lack of content....but.... WAIT....Kevin also often told me about maps with Monsters!
So there must be more!

But where?

....

Aaaaaah - so this is how u change maps. those Water looking Portals. okay got it!

Image


And so i met the NPC Sprakki wich told me more about stats.

Image

I remembered the talk with Kevin and he said i should do mainly Int and Dex on my mage. Int first untill like 70ish. Then Dex to the same.

so i did 9 int, 9 dex and 9 agi instead of 9 luk - im feeling i was right with that agi > luk , because im not that kind of a lucky person anyway.


Inside there were mostly npcs that gave me free stuff and a few lvlups - yay <3
i dunno what they talked to me, i hate reading through text - but somehow i made it correct.

and suddenly - i dont know how - i found myself on a new map and YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES- FINALLY SOME MONSTERS!!!!!
Image

there were some npcs on that map too. after doing a poring kill quest- i found a npc that heals me perm. thats nice.
Above of it theres a Merchant. Oh i see, i can buy Potatoes for HP recovery and sell my loot there. nice im slowly getting used to RO!

Image

i walked abit more to the north and discovered another npc - the Magican Guide

i remembered Kevin told me about becoming a Mage - and i was right with checking the Magican Guide NPC - because that skill book transformed me into A REAL MAGICAN YEEEEAAAA.

Image

While checking the map,
i found other job class npcs, incl. the acolyte one. nice ill come back to that later.
and some Jelly & Rabbit like Monsters.

sadly there wasnt any Warp portal on this map.

Image

So theres only 1 map to kill Monsters?
well i knew Kevin's friends told me that oRo is at a old state of content.
And they said there will come a BIG content update soon (tm) called Trans/Rebirth update.
Okay i guess ive to wait for this update to see more...

Allright - im fine with that - i will stay here, on this map, kill some jelly monsters, level up and get some Money. I will increase my knowledge of this Game with this adventure untill this so called Trans update will soon (tm) be implemented .





Day 1 - i wanna be there very best...



i managed to get some levels.
Kevin told me to kill some Drops - to get a Rod [4]
and he was totally RIGHT.
After i figured out that i have to use a Magnifier -
that Rod boosted my damage quite alot!

Lucky that npc inside the Castle, gave me one before i came onto this map. That game seems to be balanced pretty good!

Before i had to use the npc healer so often -but now i only need to use it for SP because my Cold bolt can kill Drops IN ONE HIT
thats strong ! (/omg)

Image

Kevin also told me to keep on farming those drops, because their card gives +1 dex, and most mages go for a 4xDrops card Rod.
allright ill do that - sounds easy.

this day i wasnt able to play long, its alrdy evening.
Untill this point im lvl 19/10 - hope im able to play more on the next day !



Day 2 - a new Slave


While in bed, i was still exited about this new Game.
And i remembered Kevin told me about creating a second char as Acolyte, so i can heal and even buff myself to "walk faster".
Its true that those walks from one side of the map to the other were abit boring and slow.

so i decided to create a second char to have a - how did Kevin called it - "BuffSlave".

i called him: RagnarokFanboy

Image

dunno why i had Kevin in my mind while searching for a "BuffSlave" charname, but well... (/shy) (/pif)

and wow, Kevin was totally right again. THAT WALKSPEED IS INSANE.
Blessing doesnt seem to bring much and i dont need to heal alot either. But that Increase Agility is CRAAAAZY. (/omg)
Sadly it runs out quite fast. but just in time to make 1-2 Rounds through the map and then i can heal the sp of my Buffslave on that HealerNPC again.
Just in Time. Pretty balanced in my opinion. Devs surely did a great work here. Heads up! (/no1)

i dont think leveling him whould bring me much, its just for casting that support spells on my self.

but with this strategy, and some grinding , i was able to push myself up IN NO TIME to level 26!!! (/ok)
crazy right?
i guess i got "skill" inside me to play more of that MMO stuff (/bo)
okay.... i must confess: Kevin helped me alot too!

Image

This is my setup now.

I also made good Zeny as you can see .

got RL stuff to do now, cant wait to play more Tomorrow!



Day 3 - First Luck & meeting with "The GOD of RO"




Wow guys, today ALOT of stuff happened.
Guess what, a red message just appeared!

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA - I DID IT!

Look at that:

Image

Image

Only 3 more to go. And this on my 3rd day! not bad for a newb i guess.

it really increased my levelup speed ALOT! i can feel the power :D

And if that whouldnt be enought action for today, something else happened:

As i reached lvl 30 - i saw a strange Popup

Image

first i cancel'ed it and farmed more drops again, but that popup kept coming up again and again.

So i Confirmed it.

Image

NoviceMasteR? a Guild?
i remember Kevin saying something about "Strong peoples get together in a guild to fight Stronger Monsters and other Guilds in epic wars"

well that sounds cool.

Then suddenly some text appeared in my Text box on the bottom left.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Oh boy. i got the chance to become the new RO GOD's right hand and some day- maybe even GOD HIMSELF
if i just farm like mad in this Training Ground.

Thats nice.
Hope i will be a RO God before this so called "Trans/Rebirth update" will come to this beatiful server thou.
it whould be hell of fun to explore more of the new content AS A GOD!

uhm by the way - what is a "RO God" at all? (/...)
whats the benefit for it? do i get some SUPER POWERS?
damn.
i forgott to ask him D: (/pif)
i'll do that next time

im tired now. will just kill a few more drops and go back to my bed.

Good Night - see ya tomorrow! (/bo)


Day 4 - - slowly getting RICH -




Kevin was right with the Drops farming.
Not only because of the Rod and the Card
but it also seems to be extremely rewarding in terms of MONEY.

Image

im not even 1 week here and i already got over 100.000 ZENY!

Boooy, just imagine how many Potatoes i can buy from that merchant npc.

I rly made a good choice with the Mage and Aco couple.
This way i dont even need to buy Potatoes.

Im wondering if the merchant gets a upgrade with the future episodes thou.
Only Potatoes is not very much stuff to buy.
what about more items or better equip? More maps and Monsters?

Huhm guess ive to wait for the next oRO update :(

no problem! when it comes ill be a rich overleveled Novice who knows everything about Ragnarok :D

The God of RO will be very proud - im sure!
Untill that ill just keep going to kill Drops here on this map <3



Day 5 - Rank 1 Done - Level 35 - Meeting with the GOD of RO (2)




Allright guys, i did it! im level 35 , still didnt found a 2nd Drops card, but i feel it will drop like in any minute (/ok)

Image

i must confess, it takes more and more time to get some level ups :(
BUT im sure once i got my 4x Drops, and some more int/sp i can level even faster!

The GOD of RO said it wont be easy.
And i can also remember Kevin telling me how he used to farm like thousand of hours in Ragnarok Online.
DAMN
I WILL NOT FAIL - like all the others before me!

that beeing said.... where is the GOD of RO now?

(30min later)
Ah there he is:

Image
Image

and then he went offline again (/shy)

oh well, i guess ill have to face some more days of grinding untill i can see him again.

Sadly its ABIT boring alone.
I ALWAYS SEE OTHER PEOPLES on this map.
and i also buff and heal them with my buffslave to help them leveling.
But sadly after just a few minutes, they are gone again.
i never saw anyone for a second time :(
i wonder why.
Ragnarok makes so much fun - i really like it!
Why do they quit the game so fast?
aw.

I wish SOMEBODY whould join my Novice Adventure, maybe even join the NoviceMasteR Guild :D that whould be cool (/ok)
maybe i should start to recruit more Novices on the training Ground that are level30+ (/swt)




Day 6 - The Fast leveling - Lucky Novice



what a day.
Today it feels like leveling on those Drops monsters- is going MUCH FASTER than usual.
Strange. sometimes they give more and sometimes abit less exp. like a "floating" exp range. O.o

I guess theres still much about Ragnarok that i dont know
but regardless - i took this chance and lvled fast like never before!
lvlup to 36 yeaaaa
and soon (tm) im 37 :D

but that wasnt my highlight today, look at THAT:

Image
my 2nd Drops card! finally
and guess what? i thought "oh well lets call it a day and go to bed."

but while beeing in bed i wasnt able to sleep - so i started my old little laptop and kept playing abit more Ragnarok on this small screen.
and just compair the level exp % of the next screen with the prev. one




Image


BOOM - 3rd card drop.

Seems like mother luck was with me today (/gawi)

great day! (/lv)
Just 1 drops card left, and i will prolly have the strongest weapon EVER on this server.
the next update on originsRo shall come - I WILL BE READY FOR IT! (/gg)



Day 6 - a new fellow




today i was grinding like always, and recruiting new members in #main as always

and suddenly a new novice appeared

Image

Image

wow guys, you can imagine, i didnt believed it, level 55 WOW

and its true!

Image

i was so happy, i finally found a new member!
but i am shocked and impressed at the same time - his level - 55 - damn.
Im wondering why the God of RO didnt recognized him earlier!
Maybe hes one of those friends who told Kevin to join this server? i dont know....

He is a Str Acolyte type novice, equiped with 4x Hornet Maingauche and Picky Cotton Shirt
So he can agi up himself all the time while dealing devastating damage with his dagger to monsters!
Really nice build!

we talked quite abit and i must confess- there is still so much new stuff about RO i have to learn.

he recommended me to level up fast to lvl45, so we can get in share range.
Together- with the share bonus exp - we can grind even more effective on TrainingGround than we did solo.

cant wait for that duo party grind in future - looking forward to it!

and im glad that our guild is growing.
I hope we both can find even more members in future!

and stay tuned for alot of other new stuff that happened and will happen in future!

What a nice, uplifting story about someone playing RO for the first time in 2019.
It's pretty cool that you found a physical copy of it in your basement too lol.

But for the love of GOD, PLEASE press CTRL+ALT+DEL after starting the game, so that Windows puts that blue screen up, then hit cancel so that the graphics become how they are supposed to look.
If you do not do that, you will see those black squares on the ground everywhere, and all the sprites on characters, monsters, and emotes won't look how they're supposed to.
This is something you must do every time you load the game until OriginsRO uses a more updated client or something.

I also recommend typing /skip into the chat every time you get in the game to turn OFF frame skipping, because it will always be on by default which makes the gameplay less smooth because it will be skipping some of your frames by default.

It felt really nice reading this. It remembered me of old times on euRO. People used to share their "Game-Diarys" on the RoCards forum.
