Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Below are a few questions that you may have about the game that may not be completely clear or covered elsewhere on the site. If you still have questions, feel free to ask us on our forums!
Q: Are the game mechanics renewal, pre-renewal, pre-trans, or what?
Ragnarok: Asgard Legend is not a renewal, pre-renewal, or pre-trans server. However, we are running on mechanics very similar to that of Ragnarok Online prior to renewal. This is because we believe pre-renewal mechanics provide the most true RO experience. The mechanics are different enough that players will be able to have fun learning the game again, but similar enough that it retains the original and unique RO feeling.
While the base of the server is classic, we have made heavy modifications to a lot of the way certain effects work to fix problems that Classic had. One of the major goals of the server is to make sure that every class is viable both solo and in parties and to reduce classic's critical necessity of dual clienting to have an enjoyable RO experience. If you enjoy having several clients open every time you play RO, this might not be the server for you.
You can see more details about these changes on this page.
Q: What makes Ragnarok: Asgard Legend different than some other server with a lot of customs?
The team that designed Ragnarok: Asgard Legend has extensive knowledge of the original Ragnarok Online through years of playing and development of various private servers and features. What our game offers is an entirely new experience, not just a modified one. Only some of your existing knowledge of Ragnarok Online will apply in Ragnarok: Asgard Legend, but rest assured the game won't feel completely foreign.
Additionally, the team that manages Asgard Legend pays close attention to community feedback and updates the game with the players' interests in mind.
Q: Are all of the same classes available?
For the initial release of Ragnarok: Asgard Legend, Episode 1 will contain the original 1-1, 2-1, and 2-2 job classes. You'll notice quite a few differences between the classes in Ragnarok Online and in Ragnarok: Asgard Legend. Skills may have different names, function differently, and/or have several completely new skills. We've made sure that all classes still retain their proper feel, like the thief job class feeling stealthy, but have introduced many new elements and balance fixes to the classes.
Classes are being added gradually over time - the currently available classes are listed on the website, and more are to come.
Q: What are the rates?
Asgard Legend features no set "rates" which act as a mutliplier on official sever base rates. Instead, each item's drop rate and each monster's experience is altered on an individual level. As a result, some monsters may feel like 5x or higher, whereas others can be around 3x.
As for droprates, cards are 0.10%, and equipment can drop at over 4% depending on the type of equipment. You will also find certain items that are not on a monster's original drop table, such as Dullahans dropping Armor Charms.
