World Boss Events

WorldBossEvents.png

We've revamped the entire World Boss Event system and are bringing with that an all new gRO exclusive! World Boss Events are now sheduled at fix times and happen multiple times per day. The Werewolf is the 2nd Boss next to his predecessor Belphegor. Belphegor and Werewolf have gotten even stronger and changed in their behaviour and bigger appearance.

World Bosses require a large group of players to cope with them, so get ready to call in your friends when you're up for some epic battles.
Boss Treasure Chests Rewards are limited to 3 chests per day and all rewards are account bound.

 

World Boss Timer - Website

Our new world boss timer will always tell you when and where the next world boss event is going to trigger.
The timer has been implemented for your convenience as it is independent of your time zone. This makes it easier for everyone to know when the next event is about to start.

World Boss Rewards 

We've been adding all new content to the Boss Treasure Chest drops!
Here's a small sneak peek on what you can get your hands on, but there's much more.

Treasure Chests now also always reward you with an Evil Boss Fragment.
This new currency is being used to buy a varierty of Legendary Crafting Materials, Outfit Vouchers and Powerful Gear!
The Shady Figure inside the Adventure Guild building is in bad need of these fragments.

Updated World Boss Events Guide

 

Shadow Gear - NEW

Shadow_Refiner.png

With the new World Boss system in place, we thought it is the perfect chance to finally implement the official Shadow Items. These items are costumes that provide useful effects instead of a neat look for your character. They occupy the Costume Armor, Weapon, Shield, Accessory Left, Accessory Right and Shoes slot. They can be refined, but only one Blacksmith (known as Shadow Refiner) is skilled enough to refine them. You can find him at the Armsmith's place in Althea (he is in the same room as Vulcan, the legendary Smith). There are several Shadow Boxes which contain different Shadow Sets. All Shadow Boxes are currently dropped by World Bosses. There is no other way to acquire Shadow Items.

 

Captain Kid's Chest - PvP Event

Captain Kid is an extremely wealthy pirate who will drop Captain Kid's Treasure Chest in the Hell Box PVP room roughly every 3 hours starting from 7 AM to 8 PM. The chest contains useful items and unique costumes which have a lower chance to come out of the chest. The rules to loot this chest are simple: Captain Kid will announce when she is ready to drop the chest, three minutes later it will appear in the middle of the Hell Box PVP room. You simply have to be there to loot it or die trying.

Battlegrounds

Happy hours are now daily from 10:00 to 12:00 and 16:00 to 18:00 servertime.

 

New Alternate Outfits

Shadow Chaser and Sorcerer alternate outfits are now available!
The Outfit Voucher to unlock these is now next to the cash shop also available in the new World Boss Shop (Shady Figure)!

Emperium Enchanters

Roku and his daughter Liya, two famous and highly skilled enchanters, have come all the way from Malangdo to permanently offer their services on our WoE Core (woe_map 180 200)! Roku will gladly enchant your Emperium Wing if you can provide him with enough Obsidian Fragments. His daughter is still young, but she has surpassed her father and perfected the art of enchanting. She will be able to enchant your Emperium Weapons using Emperium Fragments, Obsidian Fragments or GatheringRO Tokens.

Both of them also require you to pay them with custom GRO coins. Please read through their explanations before attempting to enchant items to avoid confusion.

 

Mr. Giveaway - gRO Introduction

Introducing Mr.Giveaway, your friendly neighbor to inform newcomers about the very basics of GatheringRO. This is a chained, learning by doing quest, which rewards you with an entire PvP Starter Set and more upon completion!

The quest is limited to be finished once per account and can be finished by anyone, current and new players.

The free PvP Gear Set should give especially new players the possibility to start their PvP journey right away, once they've reached max level.

 

Endless Tower Instance

We are happy to announce that we have made quite a few adjustments to the Endless Tower Instance. Not only did we reduce the instance cool down from 7 to 3 days, but we also replaced some of the MVPs or added another one to the corresponding floor.

Level 45  Osiris  Gopinich

Level 55  Evil Snake Lord  Tao Gunka

Level 65  Atroce  Thanatos

Level 75  Baphomet  Lord of Death

Level 85  Ifrit + Time Holder

Level 95  Beelzebub  Lord Knight Seyren

We also added a Sealed Card Album drop to Naught Seiger, so make sure you complete the whole instance for a chance to obtain this rare item.

Banned Accounts

- We have been investigating several cases of cheating/bug abusing and other rule breaking.
  All involved accounts have been permanently banned from our game without prior notice.

We have a zero tolerance in this particular matter and will continue with further investigations to offer a fair experience.

Reminder:
Found bugs must be reported immediately or you're considered a bug abuser. If you're not certain if it's an actual bug, report it anyways.
Players who observe another player engaged into bug abuse/cheating must report that player to us.
Players who do not report cases mentioned above are considered an accomplice and will be punished depending on the criminal offense. (Up to permanent ban)

Depending on the importance of your report you may be rewarded accordingly, as it supports us to preserve a cheating free environment.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Does the treasure chest recognize the entire account to be the one who could claim the rewards, if you dealt enough damage? For example if you switch chars.
