    Althea Renovation

    Althea has been renovated from the blade of a grass up to the last brick of the castle! The changes are not just about barely visual improvements but also from a comfort prespective when it comes to its available services. Especially new players should have a better time understanding the new city landscape. It may take some time for the current player base to get used to the new design, but the following information should help you a long the way. Key Locations Yellow - Vote Prize Redemption Orange - Legendary Gear Services for Prism and Valkyrie Helm Red - Item Enchantments Green - Everade's House Key Map Changes - All brand new, high quality 3d Models and textures. - The map has been enlarged and new elements have been added, such as a pretty new lake in the top right corner of the map and more. - The main area has been prettied up and enlarged slightly since player spend most of their time in this area.

New and bigger stairs have been added for a more comfortable east and west access of the map. - Gathering Station has been split up into 2 seperate shops, the Equipment shop for weapons and gear and the Supply shop for your daily needs. - The Coin Exchanger has been changed to a Bank Officer and can be found in the new Bank Office building. - Some NPCs have been moved away from the Service Area since NPCs such as the Platinum Skill NPC and similiar services aren't required on a daily basis. The NPCs have not been deleted, just moved to a new location. - Less important buildings such as the Restaurand and Inn have been moved further away from the Service area to give more room for the key features. - All sidewalks are now bigger to give you some more room while roaming on the map. - The map content of usable features have been better balanced overall so that each corner of the map is more useful. - The new buildings are now more obvious of what's going to be inside which helps to understand the map design. - Moved the major market 3d models and NPCs near the Market Place. - Prepared map for a library to inform newcomers about basic mechanics (not yet available) - Prepared map for new house rental system (not yet available) - The WoE flag locations now represent their respective castle positions on the WoE map! - Added an Althea exclusive new song. Turn your BGM on to get the entire new experience. Inhouse Interior - Removed the thick smoke in all rooms, as they were blocking a lot of the view. - Enabled access to new rooms which are now used for the bank office and the legendary gear services. - Fixed the black wall inside Everade's house. - Enlarged The token shop counter to give the cute kafra ladies some more space to work with and moved the seats further down to hangout with your favourite elephant. We hope you enjoy these improvements on our main city. Instance Fixes - Fixed the Endless Tower account based cooldown restriction Website Fixes - Fixed the website time - Fixed the WoE and Battlegrounds indicator Item Updates Most of these changes were already implemented prior to the Althea update. - Fixed wrong script of Palace Guard Cap (Pro Hunter Shop) - Improved Emperium Axe (more ATK) - Improved Emperium Knife (more MATK) - Lowered stat requirement of Temporal Boots and improved bonuses of Temporal Boots AGI - Summoner and Super Novice can now equip the Executioner and Warmaster sets - Changed set bonus of Battlelord's set for Ranger from Arrow Storm to Warg Strike and Blitz Beat - Added Summoner and Novice to job restritions of the BG sets - Slightly adjusted some Temporal Boot Enchants Skills Balancings Most of these changes were already implemented prior to the Althea update.

Refining weapons using Mechanics have additional effects. The armors are much harder to get and to refine than weapons. What do you think?

I’ve been playing casually since pre-wipe, which was around 10 years ago but in an on and off basis. I am in no way the best Genetic in the server, not by a long shot; but I am here to impart some knowledge about my favorite class. 2. Overview This guide aims to enlighten the readers on what a Genetic can do both in PVM and PVP (whenever I mention PVP, it is interchangeable with WOE and vice versa); not to dictate you on how you should play your genetic. Take this guide as a starting point to get an idea of what the class can do and from thereon you can build your own playstyle. This will include in-depth analysis of skills and equipment options for newbies and old players alike (with the original god items as an exception) so that you may build your own Genetic that will suit your playstyle! Disclaimer: Almost all formulas are taken from iRO which in turn takes theirs from the official kRO server (post-balancing). I have no way of knowing the exact formula for our server as I have no access to the back-end of the server, but through testing, I have confirmed that most are behaving as they are supposed to; meaning that the vital factors on each formula are still behaving the same in our server. 3. Skills For the full list of skills refer here. 3. Notable Skills Acid Demonstration – This is your signature damaging skill and your highest damaging skill. It’s a ranged forced neutral attack based off your ATK, MATK, and the target’s VIT. Requires and consumes a Grenade Bottle and an Acid Bottle per cast. An in-depth section is provided below. Cart Cannon – This is your bread and butter skill and is by far my favorite Genetic Skill. It’s a ranged physical attack that carries the property of your equipped cannon ball. Requires you to have a Cannon Ball equipped. An in-depth section is provided below Cart Boost – Arguably the best movement speed steroid in the game. It gives 100% movement speed and a whopping +50 ATK at max level. Decrease AGI and this skill mutually cancel each other out; if this skill is active and Decrease AGI succeeds, use this skill once to cancel Decrease AGI and once more to activate it again. Potion Pitcher – The best supportive skill at your disposal alongside Full Chemical Protection. This goes through GTB users unlike Archbishop’s healing skills. It is highly affected by your INT and the target’s VIT. Level 4 is for White Potions (HP) and level 5 is for Blue Potions (SP). Formula: Slim Potion Pitcher – An AOE Potion Pitcher except that it is unaffected by INT and the target’s VIT – only Potion Research increases its effectiveness. Full Chemical Protection – Protects the target’s equipment from being stripped and damaged (by skills) for the duration. Invaluable in WoE, PVP, and in some cases PVM. Requires and consumes a Glistening Coat for each cast. Blood Sucker – A good skill for sustain, flinching enemies, and interrupting casting. A maximum of three can be attached to enemies before the first one expires, but only one Blood Sucker can be attached per target. Requires and consumes a Bloodsuck Plant Seed for each cast. Crazy Weed – Inflicts physical Earth property damage and sweeps any ground skill in a 9x9 area. Great for removing nasty Ranger traps, Shadow Chaser paints, and Sorcerer ground skills including Land Protector. Requires a Thorn Plant Seed for each cast. Demonic Fire – Continuously inflict Fire property magic damage (can be blocked by GTB) on the target area with a chance to inflict enemies with the Burning Status. Fire Expansion can be cast on top of this skill. Requires and consumes a Bottle Grenade for each cast. Fire Expansion – It causes various effects in an active sea of Demonic Fire depending on the thrown object/catalyst. An in-depth section is provided below Hell’s Plant – Summons a plant at the target location, which will inflict damage upon contact with a chance of leaving the affected enemy stunned or bleeding for 20 seconds. Requires and consumes a Plant Bottle for each cast. An in-depth section is provided below Howling of Mandragora – Has a chance to inflict the Howling status in a larger area (15x15 at level 5) which decreases INT, SP, and increases Fixed Cast Time (does not work on monsters). A great crowd control tool in WOE. The chance is reduced by the target's VIT and LUK. Requires and consumes a Mandragora Flowerpot. Illusion Doping – A great tool for wiping low HP mobs due to its 29x29 AOE at level 5. In PVP, it’s better to use lower levels despite the smaller AOE for a higher chance of inflicting Hallucination status and decreasing HIT. Requires and consumes an Alcohol for each cast. Thorn Trap – Good for immobilizing targets (while also dealing fixed damage per second) and can even be used against MVPs (counts as a rude attack, making some MVPs teleport away). If the trapped target is hit by a Fire Property attack, the trap will be destroyed just like Sorcerer’s Spider Web but without the extra damage. Each cast requires and consumes a Thorn Plant Seed. Wall of Thorns – Creates a 5x5 barrier of thorns which is good for crowd controlling large mobs as normal monsters are knocked back by it. You can either put it up in a choke point or target the cell you are standing on to protect you from all sides. If hit by a Fire property attack, the thorns will combust and turn into a LVL5 Fire Wall. This has Earth property so it also reveals hidden enemies. Each cast requires and consumes a Thorn Plant Seed. Item Sling – Causes different effects on the target depending on the type of ammo used. The only notable item to use in PVP is Banana Bomb which forces enemies to sit and decrease their LUK and Melon Bomb which reduces the target's movement speed and attack speed. For the full list of items and their effects, refer below: 3B. Creation Skills Pharmacy – Creates various potions and bottles for your skills. Different Creation Guides are needed along with the materials. Each cast requires and consumes a Medicine Bowl. Recipes: Success Rate & Bonuses: Mixed Cooking - Prepares delicious dishes by mixing various ingredients. These dishes boost a Primary Stat by 20 for 5 minutes. Requires the user to have the Cooking Book: Mix Cooking book in the inventory. Recipes: Success Rate: Special Pharmacy - Brews a set of potions and drinks among a wide variety. Higher skill level increases the number of items that can be brewed in one set. Requires user to have the proper manual to make specific items. Recipes: Success Rate: Bomb Creation - Creates explosives out of various kinds of fruit. Requires the user to have at least one volume from the How to Make Bomb series, depending on the fruit bomb the user wants to create. Recipes: Success Rate: 3C. Homunculi Skills Bioethics – It allows the learning of Homunculus Skills. Call Homunculus - Creates a new Homunculus from an Embryo or summons an existing Homunculus that was stored by using the Rest skill. Rest - Stores the owner's Homunculus. Resurrect Homunculus - Revives a Homunculus that has been defeated in battle. A more in-depth section about Homunculi can be found below. 3D. In-Depth Skills Cart Cannon The damage formula is as follows: Damage (ATK) = [Base_Damage + {(Cart_Remodeling_Lv × 50) × (INT ÷ 40)}]% This means that INT is the most important stat when using Cart Cannon, contrary to other people thinking it’s STR as it only increases your sATK and wATK up to much. Cart Cannon is a ranged physical attack. 1. Can be blocked by Pneuma and Kyrie Eleison. 2. Affected by %Ranged Modifiers; damage and reduction. 3. When equipped with an Iron Cannon Ball (Neutral); the skill becomes Pseudo-Elemental: Taking into account your weapon’s element/endow into the calculation of the damage but remaining as a neutral attack (would still miss on Ghost3 and Ghost4 element monsters) 4. Cast time is purely variable; you can achieve insta-cast with stats alone. Here's a chart of the AOE and Cast Distance Acid Demonstration The specific formula for Acid Demonstration is unknown but a suggested formula is as follows: Suggested Renewal Formula But a few years ago, GM Beastboy tinkered with the formula as he mentions in one of his posts and I quote verbatim: What is certain is that ATK and MATK are of the same weight in calculating the damage of this skill. Acid Demonstration is a Forced Neutral ranged attack: 1. It will always stay neutral no matter the element/endow of your weapon and will miss on Ghost3 and Ghost4 element monsters. 2. The highest damage increase you can get on this skill is through %Ranged Modifiers, as it applies to the whole formula, both the ATK and MATK part (they are computed separately) unlike cards like Hyrdra which only applies to the ATK portion. 3. The way that DEF applies to this kill is kinda wonky, therefore having Memory of Thanatos Card / Incantation Samurai Card doesn’t really do much if it does anything at all. 4. Cast Time is a mix of variable and fixed. Fixed cast time is .40 seconds which is reducible by Geffen Magic Robe (-.10) and Temporal Dex Boots w/ 185 base Dex (-.35) – achieving insta-cast*. Due to an update, it seems that the Fixed Cast Time is now around 1 second - meaning insta-cast is no longer achievable. *Take note that this is the only way to achieve insta-cast on AD due to how unfavorable Fixed Cast Reduction stacks (just like Variable Cast) Fire Expansion Throws a catalyst (depending on level) on an active sea of Demonic Fire: LVL1 and 2 are not really worth the trouble to use but 3 4, and 5 has its own uses (especially on WOE). LVL3 Smoke Powder - A great defensive tool and shines the most when sieging: casting it on the portal (when rushing) or after an Emergency Call would mitigate the damage that your guild members would take. LVL4 Tear Gas - My personal favorite! Drains 5% MaxHP regardless of reduction and immunity of an enemy! Some of the usage for this is the inverse of LVL3: cast it on the portal when defending or when an enemy guild just used Emergency Call! LVL5 Acid Bottle - AOE Acid Demonstration, nothing really to discuss except that it is treated as misc damage now instead of magic (it was blockable by GTB before). Hell’s Plant To follow~ 4. Equipment I have listed equipment options that I deem viable; in by no means that anything not on this list isn't good. This is purely based on my personal opinion and as the human that I am, I probably missed on some available equipment. I labeled these by their costs: Low Cost - Easy to obtain, Cheap to buy (100m or lower), or can be obtained with no cost (untradeable items from World Boss Events); Medium Cost - A bit harder to acquire and/or can be bought below 1b; High Cost - Very hard to obtain (e.g. Rainbow Sash) and/or can be bought for more than 1b. Set items are discussed in a separate section. 4A. Upper Headgear Blessed Valkyrie Helm [High Cost][Recommended] – Gives +15 to all stats. With how stat hungry Genetics are, there’s no better headgear for overall usage. Obtainable via the Blessed Valkyrie Helm Quest Dark Lord Helm [High Cost] – Gives +10 to all stats and some HP and SP. It’s great, but very expensive to make. Obtainable via the Dark Lord Helm Quest Prism #2 / #3 [Medium Cost][Recommended (#3)] – Gives +10 / +7 stats depending on your choice. #2 is easier to make and gives a hefty 7% Demi-Human reduction. #3 is a bit more costly to make but frees up a slot because of its Maya Purple effect (detect hidden enemies) which is invaluable in PVP. Great starting God Helm for newbies. Obtainable via the Prism Quest Golden Dragon Helm [Medium Cost] – Gives +10 to all stats except INT. Decent but not really that great, I’d choose Prism over this. Obtainable via the Golden Dragon Helm Quest Dragon of Eternity [High Cost] – Gives +10 to all stats and +5 flat ASPD which will save you a ton of stat points. A great headgear but very expensive to make. I don’t recommend shooting for this when you just started as it’ll be a tedious task. Obtainable via the Dragon of Eternity Quest Dark Randgris Helm [Medium Cost] – Provides you +5 to all stats, +5% ATK & MATK, and +10% Healing Effectiveness. A very solid headgear choice for a Genetic on a budget. This can be obtained via the GM Castle (GM Dungeon: Cloister of Annihilation) Hopping Filir [Low Cost][Recommended] – The Holy Grail of support Genetics; it increases the amount your Potion Pitcher heals but reduces your damage capabilities by half. Very easy to acquire through the Homunculus Thesis Quest +7/10 Midgard Serpent Hat [High Cost] – Gives you +2 to All Stats and 5% After-Cast Delay Reduction out of the box. It starts to really shine though at higher refines: at +7 it'll grant you 10% Demi-Human Reduction, and at +10 it'll give another 5% After-Cast Delay Reduction. Obtainable via the World Boss (EBF) Shop. +8/10 Old Midas Whisper [High Cost][Recommended] – Fantastic bonuses but doesn’t work on PVP. Increases your Cart Cannon damage by 15% and ranged damage by 1% per 2 levels of refinement. It also grants +ATK, MaxHP, and MaxSP depending on the refine rate. Arguably the best in slot when it comes to PVM, but has no effect on PVP and needs to be refined to really shine which is costly. A very costly investment, but a very worthy one if you love and enjoy doing PVM content. Obtainable via the Pro Hunter Shop. Beret / Feather Beret / PooPoo Hat [Low Cost] – Gives 10% Human Reduction. Great in PVP/WOE for new players / supports. Dropped by various monsters. Ship Captain’s Hat [Low Cost] – Grants +1 DEX and +7% Long Ranged Attack. VERY EASY to make and would serve well as a starter headgear to increase your overall damage. Obtainable via the Ship Captain’s Hat Quest Kiel D-01 Card [High Cost][Recommended] – The best card in slot for Genetics. Makes you spam your skills faster since they have relatively low or no cooldown at all. Bacsojin Card [Medium Cost] – Increases your Potion Pitcher effectiveness but also increases the SP consumption of your skills. Great for support Genetics, I recommend putting it in your Hopping Filir. Maya Purple Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Allows you to detect hidden enemies. Very valuable in PVP/WOE and easily farmable. Works extremely well with Crazy Weed in revealing hidden enemies. Do not use together with Prism #3. Gemini S58 [Low Cost] – Gives you resistance to various status ailments. Great budget card if you do not have anything to put in your slots and very useful against certain instances. 4B. Middle Headgear Baron’s Evil Eye [High Cost][Recommended] – Gives you -5% After-Cast reduction in exchange for more SP consumption. Arguably the best in slot available to Genetics. Obtainable via the Pro-Hunter Shop. Noble Mask [Low Cost][Recommended] – Gives STR, INT, ATK, MATK – almost everything that a Genetic can ask for! A solid overall headgear that is very cheap to make – get one ASAP! Obtainable via the Noble Mask Quest Royal Dark Flame [Medium Cost][Recommended] – I like to call this “Noble Mask on steroids”. It gives +1 to all stats and a higher ATK and MATK bonus. You can get this from the King Poring World Boss. Shadow Booster [Low Cost] – Grants you +1 flat ASPD and 1% After-Cast Delay Reduction. A good substitute if you don’t have any of the above headgears. Obtainable via the Belphegor (?) World Boss Sunglasses [1] / Glasses [1] [Low Cost] – Just a slotted headgear with no stats or whatever. Very easy to make and I recommend this for starting players while working towards your Noble Mask. Obtainable via the Headgear Upgrade Quest. Other slotted mid-headgears [Low Cost] – Various slotted headgears for mid is obtainable via the Dating Quest Cards are the same as above. 4C. Lower Headgear Rainbow Sash [High Cost][Recommended] - +5 to all stats. Need I say more? The best in slot for almost all classes but VERY HARD to make. If you have this, by all means, I recommend that you use it – if not, your time and budget can go a long way with other equipment slots so do not prioritize it. Here is a great guide in obtaining it. Golden Fish in Mouth [Medium Cost][Recommended] – It gives +2 to all stats and +10 to both ATK and MATK! A great solid choice for a Genetic. Obtainable via the World Boss (EBF) Shop but needs to be enchanted for a slot. Speed Orb [Low Cost][Recommended] – It gives +1 flat ASPD and +3% ATK and MATK. Great overall and looks good too. Obtainable via Werewolf World Boss. Vajra [Medium Cost] – Grants you +2 DEX and +2% Long Ranged Attack. The best lower headgear if you want more damage. Obtainable via the World Boss (EBF) Shop but needs to be enchanted for a slot. Poring Rucksack [Low Cost] – It gives +5 to STR and VIT. Not much to explain here, you can get it from the Vote Shop and is enchantable in order to get a slot. Previously obtainable via the Vote Shop. Pumpkin Rucksack [Low Cost] – It gives +2 to stats and is fairly easy to make but only in Halloween events. Can also be enchanted like Poring and Deviling Rucksacks for the additional slot. Obtainable via a quest during Halloween Events; here's a guide. Rainbowring Rucksack [High Cost] – Gives +3 to all stats and is much more attainable than Rainbow Sash but still a pain to acquire. You can get it at a low chance when enchanting any kind of Rucksack (Poring, Deviling, Pumpkin). Nebula Aura (Lower) [Medium Cost] – Gives a hefty amount of MDEF (+35 MDEF) and a chance to autocast various protective buffs. The reason I didn’t recommend the Mid + Lower version is that the Lower version is cheaper (because it’s mostly failures from Rainbow Sash making) and much more useful by occupying only one headgear slot. Obtainable via the Nebula Aura Quest. Father’s White Moustache [Low Cost] – Gives +20 ATK. Very straightforward – just more damage in general but not as much as Vajra. I don’t recommend this that much since you’re better off with stacking stats, but if you really need that extra juice of damage, this will serve you well. This drops from Werewolf World Boss and can be enchanted for a slot. Gentleman’s Pipe [Low Cost][Recommended] – Grants 2% Demi-Human Reduction. I highly recommend this for support Genetics or as a starter lower headgear as it is very easy to obtain. Obtainable via the Headgear Upgrade Quest Angry Mouth [Low Cost] – Grants 3% After-Cast Delay Reduction. VERY easy to acquire and very effective - the downside is the absence of a card slot. Dropped by Mushu Mushu. Carat / Elder Willow / Isilla / Cendrawasih Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – All add +2 to INT except Isilla has a chance of decreasing Variable Cast by 50% and granting +30 Flee when using magical attacks (you have no reliable way of proc-ing this bonus so don’t count on it too much). Rhyncho Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Gives +4% Heal Effectiveness with no downsides. Great for support Genetics. Bungisngis Card [Low Cost] – Gives +1% MaxHP for every two refines. Works exceptionally well with Poring Rucksack for maximum HP gain. Nightmare Card [Low Cost] – Grants immunity to the Sleep Status and +1 AGI on top. Great against some nasty instance MVPs that cast Wide Sleep. Take note that this does not make you immune to the Deep Sleep status. Giearth Card [Low Cost] – Grants immunity to the Chaos (Confusion) status and increases resistance to Earth property attacks by 15%. Great against those annoying Leak Card users in PVP. 4D. Armor Brynhild [0]/[1] [High Cost][Recommended] – Arguably the best in slot for many classes. It gives you more damage, HP, SP, and Knockback Immunity (which is great in PVM). The non-slotted version is a tad easier to get and would work even without a card slot because of the recent buffs while the slotted version is a real pain in the ass to get but is definitely worth it. Not a starter choice but a great end-game gear. This can be obtained via the GM Castle (GM Dungeon: Cloister of Annihilation) +0/7/9/12 Geffen Magic Robe [High Cost][Recommended] – One of your most precious tools in decreasing the fixed cast time of Acid Demonstration and maximum After-Cast Delay. Great bonuses – gives 5% ATK & MATK, Uninterruptible Cast (works in WOE) out of the box, 10% Demi-Human Resistance at +7, Flat Fixed Cast Reduction (-.10) at +9, and an additional 5% After-Cast Delay Reduction at +12. Relatively easy to get and farm, but is a pain to get to +12. Obtainable via the Geffen Magic Tournament Instance +8~10 Hero Trade Mail [Medium Cost] – Gives MaxHP, MaxSP, ATK, MATK, and a chance to inflict various status effects when dealing a physical attack. And most importantly, gives more stats depending on your base stat and refine level of the armor. Great for general PVM but is kind of mediocre in PVP because of the lack of reduction. Obtainable via Isle of Bios & Morse Cave Instances. Valkyrie Armor [Low Cost][Recommended] – A relatively easy armor to obtain that grants you +1 All Stats and is Indestructible. I recommend this if you're not wearing the Sprint Set and is working towards higher-end armors. Dropped by Valkyrie Randgris. Sprint Mail [Low Cost] – Gives you +1 VIT and 3% Heal Effectiveness. Core part of the good ol’ Sprint Set. VERY EASY to farm and is a great starter armor. You can enchant it at Prontera for additional stat bonuses. Works exceptionally well with the Sprint Set but is also decent standalone. It drops from Cornus from the New World – which you can access easily by doing the Cat Hand Access Quest. Tao Gunka Card [High Cost] – Nothing much to explain since everyone knows what this card does. It doubles your MaxHP (+100%) in exchange for cutting your defenses in half. Sealed Tao Gunka Card [Medium Cost] - Half a Tao Gunka; +50% MaxHP and reduces your defenses in half, +75% if the slotted armor is +10 and above. Werewolf Card [High Cost] – It gives +50% MaxHP. Basically a half-tao Paladin Card [High Cost][Recommended] – With the recent buffs, LHZ4 cards are now all exceptionally good. It provides you with 45% MaxHP, 5% After-Cast Delay Reduction, and even has a chance to autocast Shield Boomerang when receiving physical attacks. Champion Card [High Cost] – An offensive variant of Paladin Card; foregoing some of the bonus HP for ATK. Has a chance to autocast Investigate when receiving physical attacks. Detale Card [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Gives you Freeze immunity which is indispensable as a support Genetic, especially in PVP. It also has a chance to autocast Land Protector when receiving magical damage which will help you and your party against those pesky AOE spells both in PVP and PVM. If you’re playing more of a support role, I recommend you to get this or a Marc Card, whichever fits your budget. Marc Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – A cheaper Detale that provides a 5% Water Property Resistance instead of the autocast (Land Protector), a solid choice for newbies, support or not. Amdarais Card [High Cost] – Grants +15% ATK and MATK in exchange for HP and SP drain per 4 seconds. TONS of damage for Acid Demonstration and Cart Cannon, but be cautious on the SP drain. Ghostring Card [Medium Cost] – Enchants your armor with Ghost property (Ghost1), great for general PVM and PVP as it reduces Neutral attacks by 25%, but be wary using this on WOE – you’ll get rekt by Soul Expansion and Ghost type Cart Cannon. Evil Druid Card [Low Cost] – Enchants your armor with Undead property (Undead1), a great alternative to Marc card as Undead is immune to Freeze, Stone Curse, and even Wide Soul Drain. Great for both PVP and PVM. The downside is that while wearing this, you can’t be healed (you can still be Potion Pitched) and Resurrected – so be cautious in using it. Angeling Card [Medium Cost] – Enchants your armor with Holy property (Holy1), which grants you immunity to the Holy element and gives you 25% Elemental Reduction on almost all elements except Neutral, Shadow, and Undead. Other Elemental Cards for general PVM usage – Bathory (Shadow), Agriope (Poison), Pasana (Fire), Swordfish (Water), Dokebi (Wind), Sandman (Earth). 4E. Weapon +8~15 Old Parasol [High Cost][Recommended] – I daresay that this is the best weapon for general use of Genetics. It gives MATK, +%Long Ranged Damage, and even After-Cast Delay Reduction; not to mention that It has 3 slots and is enchantable! This needs to be at least +8 to be great. The ideal enchant is FightingSpirit as it increases both your Acid Demonstration and Cart Cannon damage, but since the enchant can’t be reset, some of the other options aren’t that bad: Spell & Matk% increases your Acid Demonstration damage while ASPD+1 and %ASPD can save you a lot of stat points. The only useless enchant would be Sharp as critical does nothing for Genetics. Obtainable via the Horror Toy Factory Instance. /+10~15 Crimson Saber / Mace [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Gives tons of raw ATK but needs high refine rates to really shine. Very easy to farm and comes with different elements which can save you the trouble of getting elemental converters. I recommend new players to get one ASAP. The choice between Saber/Mace is depending on the target (only concerns Cart Cannon since Acid Demonstration isn’t affected by size modifiers): Small/Medium = Saber, Medium/Large = Mace. Take note that Maces are also indestructible as they are. Both are dropped by various mobs: @whodrops 13454 & 16040 respectively. /+10~+15 Twin Blade of Naght Sieger (Red/Blue) [High Cost][Recommended] – Has the highest damage output of any one-handed weapon of the same refine rate that you can use with the Red coming on top. This is because of the three slots and that you can get ExpertArcher when you enchant it in Malangdo. The problem is that it’s hard to get and refine. Obtainable via the Endless Tower Instance. +0~15 Erde [Low Cost][Recommended] – A very underrated weapon. Gives +10% more healing which is great for support Genetics, but also enchantable in Malangdo! If you don’t care about damage, you can even get ASPD/Int/Dex enchants. It can catch up to the damage side if you get to enchant it with two ExpertArcher. I highly recommend this for aspiring support Genetics. Dropped by Orc Lord. +0~15 Balmung [High Cost] – Grants +8 to all stats and comes with 3 slots. Not a good weapon damage-wise because it is a dagger, which means your Cart Cannon will suffer from the size penalty against Medium and Large sized monsters which will force you to put a Drake Card in it. As for Acid Demonstration, the lack of access to ExpertArcher enchants hurt it too. Being a dagger also mean it doesn’t benefit from Sword Training, making you miss out on +50 ATK. Could work well if you’re a support and you’re just after the stats though. This can be obtained via the GM Castle (GM Dungeon: Cloister of Annihilation) +10~+15 Elemental Sword [Medium Cost] – Ah! The King of Old! It’s still decent if you don’t have access to the other options. I only recommend this to support Genetics because of the stat bonuses and slots, because if you want damage, you’re better off with Crimsons as it’s easier to get. Dropped by Cobalt Minerals from WoE 2 Guild Dungeon (Schwartzvald Guild Dungeon). +10~+15 Hurricane Fury [Low Cost] – TONS OF DAMAGE. This bad boy gives up your shield to deal tons of damage but grants Medium Size Reduction (10%) – use at your own risk. Every refine gives 1% more Medium Size Reduction and ASPD. Shoot for an ExpertArcher enchant in Malangdo. Dropped by Boitata and Gloom Under the Night. +0~15 Mace [Low Cost] – If you really just want to use status cards / ASPD cards and don’t care about damage at all, this is a great choice. The 4 slots and the built-in indestructibility are terrific. An example is putting in x4 Dark Priest Cards for maximum SP drainage. +0 Combat Knife [Low Cost] – Provides you with 10% more Demi-Human Reduction and ignores defense of Demi-Human monsters too (built in Incantation Samurai Card effect). Great for supports in PVP when not Potion Pitching (switch to Erde when pitching if you are able to). Enchantable in Malangdo for more stats! Dropped by Sniper Cecil. +0 Moonlight Dagger [Low Cost] – Good for getting out of sticky situations wherein you have 0 mana (Soul Burn, Dark Priest Card, or Wide Soul Drain / T_W_O card). You only need to attack once to recover 3 SP and you’ll be able to pitch Blue Potions to yourself. Dropped by Moonlight Flower and Assassin Cross Eremes. Memory of Thanatos [High Cost][Recommended] – I mean, this card needs no introduction at all. Just take note that it doesn’t affect your Acid Demonstration at all. So if you don’t intend to use Cart Cannon, stay away from this. Archer Skeleton Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Gives +10% Long-Ranged Damage. The cheapest damage increasing card for Genetics (overall)! %Ranged Damage is King as it affects both your Cart Cannon and Acid Demonstration, especially the latter. It loses by a very small margin against Daehyeon, Turtle General, Drake, etc. - but if you're in a budget, get this as it's a breeze to get relative to the other choices. Enhanced Archer Skeleton Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – A direct upgrade from Archer Skeleton Card, it gives additional +2% on top of the original +10% Long-Ranged Damage when user is above 100 Base Level. Dropped by the respective mob in the Room of Consciousness Instance. Incantation Samurai Card [Medium Cost] – This is what I like to call “Poor Man’s Thanatos”: Ignores the DEF of normal monsters (does not work on MVPs) - it's not the same effect but the damage isn't that far off (especially versus low VIT non-MVP mobs). Very accessible because it’s easy to hunt and not that costly to buy. Great for Cart Cannon if you don’t have access to Thanatos. Drake Card [Medium Cost] – Ignores the size penalty of your weapon. Great for swords, but not so much for maces since there’s not much small sized monsters and if there are, they mostly have low HP pools. It only concerns Cart Cannon. If you have a spare slot, it’ll help a lot when using swords against large sized monsters. General Daehyeon Card [High Cost][Recommended] – Gives a flat +100 ATK when equipped with a sword. The best in slot alongside Thanatos Card if you are using a one-handed sword: the damage difference it has versus Archer Skeleton is minimal. If you have the budget, go for it - otherwise Archer Skeleton will serve you just as well. Turtle General Card [Medium Cost] – For some reason it works exceptionally well with Daehyeonn; if you don't have Daehyun, it's better to use Archer Skeleton / Drake. Lord of Death Card [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Has a chance to inflict various status effects and a very low chance to inflict Coma when physical attacking. A great card for support Genetics, or when you don’t need damage and would prefer crowd control. Works great with Cart Cannon’s AOE Stormy Knight Card [Medium Cost][Recommended] – For the same reason as above, provides a high chance of Freezing enemies which works exceptionally well with your Cart Cannon AOE. Dark Priest Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – For the same reason as above, great for draining SP of enemies. Doppelganger Card [Medium Cost] – If you’re having trouble reaching 193 ASPD with stats alone as a support, this card can save tons of stat points. Gives flat 6 ASPD Cecil Damon / Dancing Marionette [Low Cost] – A cheaper alternative to Doppel. Gives %ASPD with different drawbacks. Cecil Damon decreases HIT while Dancing Marionette decreases ATK. 4F. Shield Valkyrie Shield [Low Cost][Recommended] – One of the easiest shields to get your hands on and is very effective because it provides a hefty 20% Elemental Resistance to Water, Fire, Shadow, and Undead property. I recommend this because most of the time, you will need to have a shield card for a certain situation. Dropped by Valkyrie and Valkyrie Randgris +0-9 Mad Bunny [Low Cost] – Provides you with more ATK and MATK. Great for PVM when you don’t need resistances. Can be obtained from Werewolf World Boss. +7-12 Immune Shield [Medium Cost] – A great shield but needs high refinement to really shine, which In turns makes it less appealing. You can use this over Valkyrie Shield if you need more Neutral Resistance. Can be obtained from Belphegor (?) World Boss. Orlean’s Server [Low Cost] – Has a 5% chance to reflect any single target spell. If you’re having trouble with single target magic, this shield can help you and works especially well with Maya Card. Dropped by Aliza. Golden Thief Bug Card [Medium Cost][Recommended]] – Gives you immunity to all magical skills. Not much explanation needed. Very solid. Maya Card [Medium Cost] – Great against pesky single target skills like Soul Expansion and Adoramus. Hodremlin Card [Low Cost] – Provides you with resistance for every Size and a chance to increase your Perfect Dodge. A good card for general use. Thara Frog Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Everyone knows this card, so I don’t really need to explain. Alice Card [Low Cost] – Grants a huge 40% resistance against Boss protocol monsters in exchange of getting more damage from normal monsters. Great for MVP-ing, where GTB isn’t needed. King Poring Card [High Cost][Recommended] - Grands MDEF, VIT, and Demi-Human Reduction, but also has a chance to give you resistances to various status effects. An expensive OP card. Bijou Card[N/A Cost] - Grants Immunity to the Frozen Status (!!!!!!) which frees your armor slot off of Detale/Marc and grants +10% ATK & MATK on top of that. Here's a complete list of reduction cards for shields. 4G. Footgear +3/6/9 Temporal Dex Boots [High Cost][Recommended] – Hands down the best footgear that you can ever ask for. It gives %Ranged Attack damage and a flat Fixed Cast Reduction when your base Dex is 185. You can even enchant ExpertArcher on it. Obtainable via the Old Glast Heim Instance As for the last enchantment, you have lots of options: +3/6/9 Temporal Str Boots [High Cost][Recommended] – Gives you a ton of raw ATK. If you don’t really need / want insta-cast Acid Demonstration, this is the best choice for you. Not only is the bonus easier to attain (base 180 STR), that also means that it’ll save you a ton of stat points that you’ll otherwise need to put into DEX if you used Dex Boots. Obtainable via the Old Glast Heim Instance +3/6/9 Temporal Vit Boots [High Cost] – Just a ton of HP / SP, decent for support Genetics but not that great. Obtainable via the Old Glast Heim Instance Variant Shoes [Low Cost] – A staple footgear which gives a ton of HP and SP, be careful not to refine it! Dropped by Beelzebub. Enhanced Variant Shoes [Medium Cost] – Gives lesser bonuses out-of-the-box compared to the normal version but makes up for it with a slot. Obtainable via the Eden Group Crystal Synthesis Quest Boss Egnigem Cenia Card [High Cost][Recommended] – My personal favorite in this slot; gives you +10% MaxHP and MaxSP, and regenerates HP and SP every 10 seconds. Has saved my ass so many times when I ran out of SP (I am using an Eira build). Great against Soul Burn, Bloody Lust, T_W_O Card, and Dark Priest Card - a must for Eira users! Amon Ra Card [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Gives +1 to all stats and autocasts Kyrie Eleison when receiving Physical Attacks; be sure to have at least base 99 INT to make the most out of it. Also, take note that GTB blocks the Kyrie and that it has an after-cast delay, so if you don’t have enough After-Cast Delay reduction, it could backfire. Green Ferus Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Gives +1 VIT and +10% MaxHP. I highly recommend using this if you don’t have any of MVP cards above. Martyr Card [Low Cost] – The same as above except it gives +1 to AGI instead of VIT. Antique Firelock Card [Low Cost] – Gives +2 STR out-of-the-box and +10% MaxHP, and MaxSP if your footgear is +9 or above. If for some reason your footgear is +9 and you don’t have any MVP cards to put in, you can use this. Blut Hase Card [Low Cost] – Provides %ATK and %Ranged Attack, great if you need to squeeze in more damage in your build. Enraged Cookie Card [Low Cost] – Gives +1% ATK and MATK but decreases your MaxHP by 2% and the same bonuses apply per 2 refinement. A cheap alternative to Blut Hase Card. 4H. Garment +7/9 Adventurer’s Backpack [High Cost][Recommended] – The best in slot for Genetics since almost all the bonuses it gives benefit you. It gives ATK, ASPD, MATK, Neutral Resistance, and %Ranged Damage depending on the refine rate and your base stats. Just make sure to have your base stat at 90 for best results. Obtainable via the Pro-Hunter Shop. Emperium Wings / Fallen Angel Wings / Seraph Wings / Archangel Wings [High Cost][Recommended] – Gives bonuses depending on your stat points and doesn't need any refinement to use at its full potential. A good alternative if you don’t have access to Adventurer’s Backpack. Also enchantable at their respective shops for more bonuses. Obtainable via the WOE, BG, EBF, and Adventure Guild shops respectively. Giant Faceworm Skin [Low Cost][Recommended] – Amazing to use alongside Temporal Boots for the huge boost in MaxHP (15%) and MaxSP (5%). It comes with different enchantments that are stat bonuses. I highly recommend this if you are using Temporal Boots and don’t have Adventurer’s Backpack yet. Good for newbies too as it’s very easy to farm and even cheap to buy (below par skins serve well as starting gear). Obtainable via the Faceworm Nest Instance. Nydhorgg's Shadow Garb [Low Cost] – Gives you 7% resistance to ALL elements and increases your MaxSP. A very solid and fairly cheap choice. Dropped by Nydhoggur’s Shadow. Cloak of Airship / Ferlock's Cloak - Both grants +20 Flee and +10% Netural Reduction and comes with a slot - the only difference is the Variable Cast Reduction which we do not care about. These are great in PVM as most monster attacks are Neutral property. Obtainable via the Airship Raid Instance. Noxious Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Gives 10% Neutral Resistance and 10% Long Ranged Reduction with no drawback. A great overall card if you don’t have high-end resistance cards or multiple copies of garment to switch into – this is your safest bet. Raydric Card [Low Cost] – Gives 20% Neutral Resistance. A good card but I personally prefer Noxious over this. Deviling Card [Medium Cost] – Gives 50% Neutral Resistance but makes you take 50% more damage from every other element. A good card against fellow Genetics and in some way or another against Suras and Royal Guards. Be cautious when using it. Dark Guardian Kades Card [High Cost] – Gives 50% Elemental Resistance from Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Shadow, and Undead but you’ll take more damage from Ghost and Holy. This should be your go-to switch against Sorcerers as with this, they do not have anything that can hurt you fatally. DO NOT use this against WLs as most of them uses Soul Expansion. Farbjodur Card [High Cost] – The same as above but you’ll take more damage from Neutral instead of Ghost anda Holy. This should be your go-to switch against Warlocks as they are left with Comet and Napalm Beat to deal decent damage against you. Assassin Cross Card [High Cost] – Great for hit-and-run tactics in PVP as it pairs well with your Cart Boost and makes you way more annoying than you already are. Menblatt Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – Increases your %Ranged Damage depending on your base DEX which pairs well with Temporal Dex Boots. Great for general PVM. Wakwak Card [Low Cost] – A good substitute if you’re not using Temporal Dex Boots + Menblatt as it will give you ATK based off your STR. Here's a list of other Elemental Damage Reduction cards for Garments. 4I. Accessory Expert Ring [Low Cost][Recommended] – My personal choice in the accessory slot. Each of these bad boys will give you 5% After-Cast Delay reduction which will translate to faster Cart Cannon, Acid Demonstration, Hell’s Plant, and Potion Pitcher. Dropped by Ragged Zombie. Improved Expert Ring [High Cost] – A better version of the above but is very expensive which in my opinion is not worth for the additional 1% After-Cast Delay reduction and +10 ATK & MATK. If you have it, feel free to use it. If not, I do not advise getting it as your budget can go along way in other slots. Obtainable via enchanting an Expert Ring. Physical Intensifier Ring [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Provides you with %ATK and %ASPD and pairs extremely well with Geffen Magic Robe to give you more Demi-Human reduction and After-Cast Delay reduction. Bear in mind that the combo script of the set bonus is only considered once. Obtainable via the Geffen Magic Tournament Instance Str Gloves [Medium Cost] – Tons of ATK. If you need more damage, this is the accessory for you. Obtainable via the Eclage Glove Maker (here’s a guide to help you obtain it) Bangungot Agimat Tattoo [Medium Cost] – Increases both your healing prowess and the healing you receive. A decent choice for full support Genetics. Obtainable via the Pintados Festival Event Quest Royal Earring [Medium Cost][Recommended] – I’ve recently fallen in-love with this accessory. At max job level, each earring will give you a whopping +5 AGi, +5 DEX, +5 INT +10% Healing Effectiveness and 6% Elemental Resistance to Fire, Wind, Water, Earth. Not to mention that it has a chance to increase your MaxHP when you are attacked (not that it matters that much). You can get it from King Poring World Boss. Silversmith Bracelet [Low Cost] – A relatively easy to obtain gear with decent stats (+1 to All Stats, +3 MDEF) and access to LVL5 Spell Breaker which is very useful against certain instance bosses (e.g. Naght Sieger - Spell Breaking his restore skill). Obtainable via the Old Glast Heim Instance (Treasure Room) Broken Chip 01 + Broken Chip 02 [Low Cost]– Individually they give +4 STR and +4 INT respectively, but together they give a whopping +12 STR and +12 INT in total and they even come with slots. The drawback is that they’re a pain to obtain. Obtainable via The Last Room instance Belphegor Card [High Cost][Recommended] – The best accessory card you can get your hands on. Increases your ATK, MATK, MaxHp, MaxSP and has a chance to autocast Wide Freeze when being attacked. The stats will speak for itself. Faceworm Card + Dark Faceworm Card [Medium Cost][Recommended] – Not that good when used individually but really great when used together - grants you +1 VIT, +1 AGI, +1 INT, + 1 DEX, +3% ASPD, 6% After-Cast Delay Reduction in total. Errende Ebecee Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – A chance to autocast Pneuma when hit by any physical attack which is great against Rangers, Gunslingers, fellow Genetics, and many more. Alligator Card [Low Cost] – If chance to be immune to all ranged attacks isn’t your cup of tea and would like a surefire way to reduce damage, this is what you’re looking for. It reduces damage from long ranged physical attacks by 5%. Horong Card / Silvering Card [Low Cost] – Enables the use of Sight and Ruwach respectively. Great when paired with Maya Purple if Crazy Weed & Wall of Thorns isn’t enough to reveal hidden enemies. Iara Card [Low Cost][Recommended] – A very new card. Enables the use of Status Recovery, which will enable you to help Frozen / Stone Cursed teammates. Bronzering Card [Low Cost] – Grants you +20 ATK. If you need more damage, get this card. 4J. Shadow Gear Reload Shadow Set [Recommended] - The best Shadow Gear for Genetics in my opinion. This set will allow you to reach 100% After-Cast Delay Reduction easier. Force Shadow Set [Recommended] - Just more ATK in general. Great hand in hand with the Reload set as they use different equipment slots. Boned Shadow Set - Great for PVP, giving you more damage against Medium-sized monsters. Intelligent Shadow Set - More INT, not really much to explain. Kingbird Shadow Set - Grants you more ATK and %Ranged Attack Damage. A good alternative if you don’t have the Reload set. Infinity Shadow Set - Basically a free Drake Card if by chance you get them at a total of +15. Great for Sword users! 4K. Equipment Sets Sprint Set – I recommend getting this set if you're just starting in the server. Easiest set to farm that works well in PvM since you can have multiples for elemental armor switching. All the parts can be farmed in the New World. Sprint Mails drops from Cornus, Sprint Shoes drops from Hillslion, and Sprint Rings drops from Luciola Vespa. Adventurers Set – By far the easiest set to get as it is essentially free from Mr. Giveaway at the center of Althea. Great starter set with solid stats for PVP/WOE while you grind for your Emperium Set as you don't need any refine on it to be effective. The downside is that you can't refine it (can't use refine based cards) and switching is impossible as you can only get 1 set of this. Suit / Plate WoE Sets – You have two choices in this: the Siege Suit Set or the Siege Plate Set - I'd say it's purely up to personal preference as to what to use; I personally prefer the Siege Suit Set. The edge of this over Adventurer's Set is that it's relatively cheap to acquire several pieces for switching but if you don't plan on doing switching etc., I'd suggest you stick to the Adventurers Set. Glorious S Set (Battlegrounds) - A relatively cheap set to farm that still performs reliably especially for a support Genetic. It works well without the rings if you don't have them as they are quite expensive for the stats that they give. Warmaster's Set (Battlegrounds) - A more offensive choice of armor that boosts the damage of Cart Cannon. I'm not really a fan of this set but it's there as a choice. Warmaster's Suit - Grants +15 MDEF, +20 Flee, +10% MaxHP & MaxSP, 5% Demi-Human Reduction. If +6 or higher: +15% Healing effectiveness and uninterruptible casting (doesn't work on WOE). If +9 or higher; has a chance to enchant the armor with Ghost property when receiving physical attacks. Set Bonus: +7 AGI/INT/VIT, +15% Long Ranged Reduction, -.15 Fixed Cast Time, and 10% After-Cast Delay Reduction. Warmaster's Cloak - Grants +10 MDEF, +3% ATK & MATK, 3% Demi-Human Reduction.If +6 or higher: +3% MaxHP & MaxSP, +3 INT. If +9 or higher: +2 ASPD, 7% to reflect single target magic. Warmaster's Shoes - Grants +8 MDEF, +8% MaxHP & MaxSP, 2% Demi-Human Reduction. If +6 or higher +15% ASPD, recovers 2500 HP every 7 seconds. If +9 or higher: +25 ATK & MATK, +12% MaxSP, recovers 700 SP every 7 seconds. Warmaster's Badge - +5% Healing effectiveness, +5% ATK & MATK. Has a chance to Awaken for 10 seconds when using Potion Ptcher, Heal, or whe dealing gamage. Awaken Bonus: +150 ATK or MATK, +150% HP/SP recovery, 15% After-Cast Delay Reduction, --0.2 Fixed Cast Time, +15% Healing effectivness. Emperium Sets – Finally, the revered Emperium equipment. In general cases, these are the highest of the high-end gears when it comes to PVP; personally, I dislike the concept of these items as they are waaaay too strong that it kills the diversity of equipment/builds but that's another story for another day. The good thing about these armors is that you can mix and match them and you'll still get the set bonus from whatever Emperium armor you have. I'll briefly discuss the choices in here. Emperium Armor - The original Emperium armor still packs quite a punch even with the addition of the new armors. It gives +3 ASPD, +20 MDEF, +7% MaxHP & MaxSP. If +6 or higher: +20% Long-Ranged Reduction, if +9 or higher: +7% ATK and MATK. Set Bonus: +20 MDEF, +3 All Stats, +15% Demi-Human Reduction. A very solid and versatile choice as it's easily usable by different classes. Emperium Formal Suit - Quoting my friend @Hangul "It screams Genetic all over" - and hell yeah it does, offensive Genetic at the least. It gives +12% ATK & MATK, 40% Stone & Freeze Resistance. If +6 or higher: +5% MaxHP & MaxSP, 10% After-Cast Delay Reduction. If +9 or higher: Regenerates 2% of HP and SP every 7 seconds. Set Bonus: +4 All Stats, +10% Neutral Resistance, and a high chance of inflicting Stone Curse on the attacker when receiving physical damage. The ATK/MATK and 10% After-Cast Delay bonus are huge, Stone/Freeze resist would let you slot in an offensive card in your armor, but the best part is the HP/SP regen part - this would free the footgear slot for Eira users as this is practically an Egnigem Cenia card or just good in general for the same reasons as the card. Emperium Cape - The best garment available to genetics imo, it provides a healthy mixture of both offense and defensive bonuses. It gives +3% MaxHP, +5% Resistance to all elements, and increases your MaxSP by 5*BaseLevel. If +6 or higher, +3% MaxHP, 2% Resistance to all elements, +3% Long Range Attack. If +9 or higher: +20 ATK/MATK/HIT, +2% Long Range Attack. It's hard to beat this garment with such solid bonuses. Emperium Boots - A versatile choice among classes which makes it a really safe choice. It grants +8% MaxHP & MaxSP. If +6 or higher: +5% Long Range Attack, +1 All Stats. If +9 or higher; -25% Fixed Cast Time. Emperium Accessory Set Bonus (any two of different named accessories trigger this bonus) +3% ATK/MATK, 5% After-Cast Delay Reduction, 5% Elemental Reduction (except Neutral) Emperium Clip - A fantastic accessory (and my personal choice) that grants you LVL1 Hiding and Sight! Freeing your accessory slot off of Horong/Silvering cards. Hiding is useful in dodging non-earth ground targeted skills. On top of that, it also gives +4% MaxHP, +1 All Stats, +2% MATK, +4% Long Ranged Attack. I recommend getting this + one other accessory. Emperium Glove - An offensive oriented accessory. It gives +10 MDEF, +3 STR/INT/DEX, +5% ATK/MATK. Emperium Gauntlet - A support oriented accessory. It gives +10 MDEF, +3 VIT/INT/AGI, +5% MaxHP, +4% Healing Effectiveness. 5. Homunculus System I won't be discussing each and every homunculi in detail but instead will be talking about what I personally think are the viable ones while giving a brief overview on the others. 1. All Homunculi are Demi-Human and Neutral Property 2. They gain a skill point for every three levels. There is no job level equivalent. 3. They obtain additional EXP from server rates, but NOT Battle Manuals. 4. Their Flee and Defense is not reduced by the number of monsters. 5. Their Hit is capped at 99%. Even if it has more hit than required, it will always miss at a 1% chance. 6. All Homunculi have a base attack speed of 1.4 seconds / attack (130 ASPD) 5. Homunculus stat growth is RANDOM. Nothing will affect which stats will grow and which won't. 6. Homunculi can hit Ghost property monsters with its normal physical attack. 7. The Ideal way of feeding is to feed it between 11% - 25% Hunger for the maximum intimacy gain of 5. Intimacy Tiers Once a Homunculus gets an Intimacy of 911 or higher (Loyal) you can use an item called a Stone of Sage to evolve it into its higher form (its Intimacy resets to 10 (Hate). Once its Intimacy reaches 910 again (1 point before Loyal), a fourth, new skill is unlocked. Once evolved, the Homunculus will gain these advantages: 1. Boosted Hit Points (HP) and Spell Points (SP) 2. Boosted Stats (random distribution) 3. Unlocked the Final Skill (Evolution/Ultimate Skill) 5A. Homunculus (Base) Here's a brief table of the base homunculi: I would personally recommend for you to choose between Filir, Amistr, and to some extent Vanilmirth - Lif is just outclassed by the other choices. Choose Filir if you want to level up your Homunculus faster, as its base stats and skills make it the easiest to level up. Choose Amistr if you want the most value of your homunculus as its skills and stats are great for PVP and PVE alike. Choose Vanilmirth if you want a mix of offense and defense as its stats are in-between. 5B. Homunculus S To mutate your Homunculus, you must do the Homunculus S Quest. (PAY THE FEE FOR A STABILIZED MUTATION!!!) To mutate a Homunculus into a Homunculus S, meet the following requirements: 1. Homunculus must be evolved into their 2nd form 2. Homunculus must be at least Level 99. 3. Homunculus does not need to be Loyal to be mutated. Once mutated, the Homunculus will alter its base stats, will remember all of its skills from its previous form and will change into the new "S" form. However, its Intimacy will reset to 10 (Hate). If the Homunculus did not get the evolved loyalty skill, it will not be able to acquire it after mutating. New Homunculus S skills will become available as the Homunculus reaches certain level requirements. There are 5 types of Homunculi S to choose from: In this guide, I will only discuss about Eira and Dieter; as I deem them the only worthy homunculi to use in our server. Eira - A great supportive choice of a Homunculus due to 3 of its skills: Overed Boost, Silent Breeze, and Light of Regenerate. Overed Boost - This skill at LVL5 sets the Genetic and Eira's ASPD to 189 and Flee to 500 (fixed; cannot be increased nor decreased by anything) for 90 seconds at the expense of SP and Hunger at the end of duration or upon re-cast (making Eira the fastest Intimacy farming Homunculus). This opens up to 1 AGI 189 ASPD builds; meaning you can put more stats for more offense or survivability. This also makes it possible for Eira comfortably use intimacy consuming skills like Filir's S.B.R.44 and Vanilmirth's Self-Destruction. Silent Breeze - This skill heals the target by a certain amount in exchange of inflicting the target and itself with silence. Certain status effects are overridden by the silence that this skill inflicts, such as: Chaos, Sleep, Deep Sleep, Hallucination, Harmonize, Howling, & Siren's Voice. Furthermore, the silence that this skill inflicts can be resisted by stats and cards - making it a free cure for these ailments. Light of Regenerate - This skills makes Eira a Token of Siegfried on legs, but it needs a Loyal intimacy level which will drop to Cordial once it is casted. In a nutshell, it provides you a Token of Siegfried buff for 10 minutes at LVL5 that has priority over actual Token of Siegfried's when in effect. This is a very helpful skill in PVE when you are soloing instances or just can't afford to die. This does not work on PVP/WOE. Dieter - A highly offensive oriented Homunculus. Almost all of its skill are straightforward and are viable in PVE and PVP. Pyroclastic - Dieter's ace in the hole. Endows the Genetic weapon and Dieter's attack by Fire and increases their ATK tremendously. However, during the duration of this skill, you cannot switch waepons. And after the duration of this skill, your weapon will break if you don't have Chemical Protection in it, except for indestructible weapons like maces, etc. Volcanic Ash - Sprays a Volcanic Ash in a 3x3 AOE that inflicts the Ash status to anyone who passes through it. Be cautious when using this skill on WOE because this affects ally too. Ash Status Granitic Armor - A supportive skill that provides the Genetic and Dieter 10% damage reduction from all sources for 60 seconds at the cost of %MaxHP at the end of the duration. Lava Slide - a 7x7 AOE skill that inflicts FIre physical damage every two seconds with a chance of inflicting the enemies with the Burning status. Works really well alongside Demonic Fire for more Burning! Magma Flow - Dieter's main leveling and tanking skill; Dieter inflicts Neutral physical damage at a chance when receiving physical attacks when this skill is active. 6. Stat Building I’m not going to provide you with a clear-cut status build because it will greatly change depending on gears that you have. I will however take you into how you would want to approach the stats of your Genetic. Full Support 180-200 INT – Your most important stat to maximize the amount you can heal others with Potion Pitcher. 150-180 VIT – Another key point Is your survivability, more HP to stay in the battle longer. DEX – Just enough DEX to reach the threshold of 0 Variable Cast Time. Here’s a simple formula to help you calculate how much DEX you need to put in [(530 – INT)/2 = DEX]. AGI – Just enough to get if not 193 ASPD at least 189 ASPD with Berserk Potion. 100ish STR – Just enough to carry stuff: equipment, potions, catalysts, and ammo. LUK – The rest should be dumped here, for more status resistance and some ATK, MATK, and Perfect Dodge. Should be divisible by 3 for maximum efficiency (ATK and MATK) or by 10 if you want more Perfect Dodge. Hybrid / Damage Type 180ish INT – Still your most important stat to increase your damage and Potion Pitcher effectiveness. 185~ DEX – If you’re using Temporal Dex Boots, you need 185 DEX to activate the bonus. If not, just put enough to reach 0 VCT (formula same as above) 150-180 STR – The second stat that increases your overall damage and weight capacity. AGI – Just enough to get if not 193 ASPD at least 189 ASPD with Berserk Potion. 120-150 VIT – Self-explanatory, same as above. LUK – the rest is dumped in here, same as above. 7. Special Thanks @Nicocaine & @Hangul for pushing me to do and finish this guide, giving helpful inputs, and even proofreading this guide. @Autumn Angel & @lancelot for lending me items to test and doing actual tests with me. 8.

    Enchanters & Shiny Hair

    Added Costume Hairstylist NPC! Costume Hairstylist Alex This NPC can be found next to the Stylist NPC in Althea (Althea Guide -> Stylist). Alex offers unique Costume Hairstyles in different colours in exchange for 1 Hairstyle Costume Coupon (currently only obtainable through WoE 1 Treasure Chests) and 5 Mithril Coins. Added Upper Costume Enchanters! Costume Enchanter Tira (Battleground) Costume Enchanter Ken (War of Emperium) These NPCs can be found in the Battleground waiting room (Tira) or on the central War of Emperium map (Ken). They will enchant your Upper Costume (for a list, talk to each NPC and select "How does the enchantment work?") in exchange for Heroism Badges / Emperium Fragments. Possible enchants: +1 All Stats, 3% MaxHP and MaxSP, 1% ATK, 1 % MATK Note: The list of Upper Costumes that are available for enchanting will be extended based on player feedback in the near future. At that time, a separate topic will likely be created. Added Emperium and Battleground Armor enchanters! Armor Enchanter Troy Armor Enchanter Troy can be found on the central War of Emperium map. He can enchant the Emperium Bodyarmors sold by Olivahla if you bring him enough Emperium Fragments. He works like the Temporal Boots enchanter, except that the stats he provides are slightly lower and the random special stat for the 5th enchantment is different. Possible special stat enchants: -4% After-cast delay, +1 ASPD, + 20 ATK and MATK, + 25 MDEF Armor Enchanter Clark Armor Enchanter Clark can be found in the Battleground waiting room. He can enchant the Battleground Bodyarmors sold by the Eminent Armorsmith if you bring him enough Heroism Badges. He works like the Temporal Boots enchanter, except that the stats he provides are slightly lower and the random special stat for the 5th enchantment is different. Possible special stat enchants: -4% After-cast delay, + 1 ASPD, + 20 ATK and MATK, + 25 MDEF Battleground Updates: Glorious Hem S [1] Added slot to Glorious Helm S, but reduced ATK and MATK bonus when worn with Glorious Weapons to 7%. Balanced beginner Battleground sets (Assaulter Plate set, Assasin's Robe set, Medic's Robe set, Elite Archer Suit set...) and slightly increased prices to match their new effects. This way beginners should be able to purchase a new, relatively cheap set that is better than the beginner PVP set (handed out by the Giveaway NPC) before aiming for ascended sets. Example: Assassin's Robe Set If you desire to move more quickly, this might help. It gives off multiple effects when compounded as a set. Stats during WoE & PVP: Assassin's Robe: MaxHP/MaxSP +5%, MDEF +15, reduces damage taken from Demi-human by 5%. If refined to +6 or higher, ATK +5%, ASPD +1. Captain's Manteau: MaxHP/MaxSP +3%, MDEF +12, ATK +5%. Battle Greaves: MaxHP/MaxSP +7%, MDEF +10, reduces ranged damage taken by 5%. Set bonus: All Stats +3, MaxHP +5%, reduces damage taken from Demi-human monsters and long range damage taken by 10%. ------------------------------------------------- ASPD +2, after-cast delay -5%. ------------------------------------------------- Adds a chance of increasing movement speed by 20% and ATK by 5% for 15 seconds when receiving physical or magical damage. Daily Quest Updates: Added 3 new costumes to the Adventure Guild Shops (1x Coupon A, 1x Coupon B, 1x Coupon C) They have been moved from the cash shop and are now available to questers. Removed Bloody Page item from the Quest requirements. This item only drops in the Thanatos Tower and is thus very difficult to farm. We are aware of the currently unsatisfying situation that the recent Dual Client ban has created for the Thanatos Tower. We will address this problem as soon as possible. Please bear with the current situation until we have come up with a solution. Item Updates: Some minor adjustments to Horror Toy Factory headgears. Celine Ribbon now adds +4 MATK per refine while Lush Rose adds only +2 MATK per refine. Added Twin Edges of Naught Seiger and Yellow Foxtail Weapons to possbile Malangdo Enchants. Fixed combo bonuses of Assassin's Glove and Wand of Affection II. Fixed TWO Card item script. It now only triggers on melee physical attacks (short range auto attacks) as the description states. Reduced level of NPC_SOULDRAIN casted by TWO Card to level 1 (20% SP drain in 11x11 cells around the user). Re-enabled uninterruptible cast bonus of Geffen Magic Robe even during WoE and BG, except if the user is a Guild Leader (temporary workaround until a better way to address the uninterruptible Emergency Call problem is found). Fixed missing 5% MATK bonus in script of Geffen Magic Robe and added 5% ATK bonus. Valentine's Ring Re-enabled Valentine's Ring's Kyuut disguise effect. The ring will now transform the user for 60 minutes when equipped (re-equip to refresh the duration). It uses the official transformation script for monsters to prevent the (complete) invisibility bug in cloaking state. This means you will see a small wolf head icon above your character and a buff icon on the right side of the screen. Fixed item script of Sarah's Battle Robe. Adjusted item descriptions of all Thanatos Weapons and improved HP/SP drain effects. Improved all of the LHZ4 MVP cards to be more attractive for High Rate purposes. Example (new effects are in bold): Champion Chen Card MaxHP +25%. After-cast delay -5%. Randomly autocasts level 5 Investigate on attacker when the user receives physical attacks. ATK +7%, MaxSP +5%. If base AGI is at least 110: ATK +7%, MaxSP +5%. Monster Updates: The monsters of the Horror Toy Factory have been rebalanced (only the non-boss monsters). Their damage and stats have been increased to be on par with monsters from other instances that are part of the Daily Pro Hunt rotation. Cash Shop Updates: Added 6 new costumes to the Cash Shop (2x Upper, 2x Mid, 2x Lower): Costume Sorcerer's Hood, Costume Floating Stone of Sage, Costume Book of Magic, Costume King Sura Headband, Costume Wall, Costume Tipsy These are permanently available in the costume section of the cash shop. Pro Hunter Updates: Added a 3rd day check for the pro hunter system as players reported that Endless Tower repeated after 2 days. So in the future this issue should not ever happen again. Skill Updates: Doram: Scar of Tarou: Increased chance to inflict "Bite Scar" status (10%->20%) and increased duration (9->12 seconds). "Bite Scar" status will drain 2% MaxHP per second. Increased damage of Lunatic Carrot Beat and slightly reduced cooldown Slightly reduced cooldown of Spirit of Savage Genetic: Slightly reduced cooldown of Acid Demonstration Slightly increased damage of Crazy Weed Shadow Chaser: Slighty increased damage of Feint Bomb Increased additional SP consumption during Masquerade Laziness debuff to 100 SP * skill level used. Increased SP drain by Masquerade Ignorance to 2000 * skill level used.

    December Patch

    Hunter Association's Jobs - NEW A chairman of the Hunter Association stationed Ging, a renown Pro Hunter to recruit new Pro Hunters as their numbers are running low. While the Adventure Guild allows normal adventurers to take on their requests, the Hunter Association distributes their Boss Hunts only to extraordinary Pro Hunters! Hunter Association's Jobs are daily, randomly picked, team-based instance Boss Hunts. Instance bosses drop a Boss Chest which can be looted by every party member who participated on the boss fight. It is highly recommended to team up on these daily targets! Become a Pro Hunter and access a brand new, exclusive Market! -> Full Details in our new Adventure Guild Guide Legendary Update - Part 3 Someone is spreading the rumor that the Perverted Stalker, known from the famous billboard, finally appeared in Althea to sell my used panties. Please note that this is just a rumor. Someone is spreading lies about me, do not trust anyone! My "NO TRESPASSING" sign is there for a reason, leave me alone already! This is a warning to the Mysterious Person! There is no Legendary Update - Part 3!

If you're interested into any information about Gatheringro, -> Check it out! Core Updates rAthena is still in the middle of the transition of changing the code base from C to C++. A lot of code has been merged to the newer coding language already. These changes will help the developers of the emulator we're using to code new official features in the future which weren't possible to be properly implemented before. We waited a while with this update to ensure a more stable environment. A lot of crash issues and major bugs have been fixed already, but it's still possible that they've missed something. So please let us know if there's something not working as expected.

    Index §1 Introduction §2 Gearing up §3 MVPs §4 Grindables §5 Crafting Gear §6 Instances §7 Dailies §8 Vending §9 Final Words §1 Introduction I've been playing RO since euRO, on and off. During my time playing Ragnarok I've always been a collector and a grinder. Never enjoyed PVP too much. I like playing the market and just spending all Sunday grinding items, headgears and crafting +10 weapons. I recommend you go with the Ranger class as it's the most versatile class with one of the best AoE spells. You can use your Ranger to grind Goldrings, Bosses, Mithrils, Endless Tower, Instances - anything really. You will also need a Whitesmith/Mechanic to create those +10 weapons and to sell your gear. Keep in mind that you may create a second account if you EXCLUSIVELY use it for autovending. §1.1 What am I looking at? This guide focusses exclusively on farming as much Zeny as possible. Basically, Zeny is not free. Zeny is your time, so if you're farming Zeny you are trading your time for Zeny. It doesn't just come out of nowhere. Just like in real life - you spend 8 hours at your job, essentially selling your time to your employer. In this guide I'm trying to explain how to get the most Zeny for the time you invest. What you do with the Zeny that you accumulate is entirely up to you. In this guide I will cover the most accessible ways, even for someone who just started out, to generate Zeny. No need to upsell high tier items, no need to spend weeks building Improved Accessories or farming God Item Ingredients. §1.2 Getting started To get started, max out your Ranger and make a Whitesmith - you can find various leveling guides on this forum. You can later change your Whitesmith to Mechanic, but I decided not to because it takes so long to reach Job Level 120. Your refining success increases with each job level. But I'm too lazy and I find the Mechanic class too boring to max it, so I'm staying with a 250/110 Whitesmith - even though it is less efficient. Don't be like me though - grind that Mechanic to 250/120!! You have to complete the Hazy Forest Instance quest to access the Mora Questline, which you'll need later on to acquire your first gear and to farm zeny. §2 Gearing up §2.1 Stats Standard grinding build (high STR for high carrrying cap) Standard Instance build (some HP for survivability) Standard MVP hunter (high STR to carry different arrow elements) §2.2 Skills Your most important skills will be the following: Arrow Storm Fear Breeze True Sight Improve Concentration Wind Walk Unlimit Wug Rider Wug Strike Sensitive Keen Full Throttle (World Boss) §2.3 Gear The WW Set is so easy to get and yet so strong. The suits drop at a 100% rate so if you spend 3-4 hours farming ONLY suits, you can easily craft a +9 or +10 WW suit. With the Mimic and Myst Case Cards you get some extra loot while you're grinding. If I spend a full Sunday grinding alt_fild03 I normally end up with 400 Old Blue Boxes and 800 Gift Boxes. You get useful items like MVP drops, headgears and Dyestuffs from these boxes. You can also sell them for 100-150k ea. I don't use Skeleton Archer Cards because I have enough damage for all the mobs I farm and I don't see the need to make a second +10 Elven/Crimson Bow just for the Skel Archer Cards if I can sell these bows instead. Further, the damage of Wug Strike is not calculated as ranged damage. So when you're killing MVPs/Mini MVPs you deal a lot more damage in any case. Also you don't have to bother with switching your bows all the time. Low Budget (Easy to farm solo in an hour or two) Medium Budget (takes some time, money and quests to get) §2.4 Extras As for extras, I have a premium account membership which increases my droprate on all items. Furthermore, I spend my daily quest tickets as well as my gRO tokens on Weekend Hunting Packs. You can also get Weekend Hunting Packs by participating in WoE and trading the Emperium Fragments in for the packs in @go WoE. These contain 10x Bubblegum as well as 10x Tokens Of Siegfried (which are super useful for Endless Tower and Instances). I use the Blessing Scrolls for World Boss and MVPs and the AGI Scrolls for MVPs/monsters who have the decrease AGI skill. I also use Authoritative Badges and Yggdrasil Berries when hunting MVPs. I keep the Bubblegums for when I know that I can grind for 30 minutes straight without a break, usually farming Berries and Gold. @Khaii has mentioned that when buying gear (such as arrows) from NPCs, you can use Any slotted accessory with a Pirate Skeleton Card, which gives you the Discount Lvl 5 Skill. §3 MVPs Hunting MVPs is pretty self-explanatory. You keep track of the tombstones and times on MVPs and just kill them and hunt them down, hoping for a card. Getting MVPs cards is probably one of the most rewarding feelings in the game...for me at least. But keep in mind that it's not the most efficient way to farm Zeny. To keep track of all the tombstone coords and MVP spawn timers, I use an Excel chart. It automatically calculates the soonest and latest spawn time of an NPC. Check out the Excel chart here or MVPChart.xlsx. You don't need much to get started with MVP hunting. I'd suggest you use my budget item build and bring some Yggdrasil Berries, then just get going. I do have one tip though: Keep those Convex Mirrors you get from events and login rewards to track down Goldring Boss when he spams his teleport. Normally it takes me 5-10 minutes tops to kill him. I also switch my Wug mount to a Falcon. Go for a Max Luk/Critrate build to activate Falcon Blitz more often. §4 Grindables Simply grinding items is the easiest way to get Zeny, but also the most boring one. When grinding Usables, make sure that they're high in demand. Think about what players may use them for. Berries/Seeds are self-explanatory: World Boss and MVP Hunting When grinding sellables, make sure it's an item which has an okay (>30%) droprate and that the map is mobby enough. As far as I'm concerned, there's no better map on this server than alt_fild03 for grinding sellables. Mithril for example will always be in high demand because players need it for various God Items as well as Improved Accessories. §4.1 Goldrings, Althea Field 03 The most obvious choice to grind are the Goldrings in alt_fild03. With it's 30% + 5% Gold droprate, you can farm about 100m Zeny per active 30 minutes. This rate increases with Bubble Gum and a premium account. You can even use the Goldring Cards to enter the Poring Realm. Unfortunately you have to convert the cards for Gold Poring Coins one by one, which is really tedious. But as a reward, you get to defeat a really easy MVP that drops a random Poring Headgear and a Poring Box. I sell the headgears for 20m each. After a full day of grinding alt_fild03 I end up with about 100 Goldring Cards, which are then converted to 200 Gold Poring Coins. This allows me to enter the Poring Realm 4 times, resulting in another bonus 80m Zeny after selling the headgears. Let's not forget about the hundreds of Gift Boxes and Old Blue Boxes I end up with. I'm selling the Gold that I farm only with my Whitesmith with the Overcharge Skill. That's 124.000 Zeny per Gold sold. §4.2 Yggdrasil Berries, Yggdrasil Seeds My favorite Berry Hunting spot is prt_maze03, simply because it's a map with small and mobby fields. You can find swarms of Stem Worms for Yggdrasil Seeds, Baphomet and Ghostring there as well. But generally, for Yggdrasil Seeds you want to go to lhz_fild02 as it's filled with Stem Worms which have a high droprate on Yggdrasil Seeds. Berries generally go for 100.000 - 200.000 Zeny while the Seeds go for 50.000 - 80.000 Zeny. §4.3 Mithril I really have no idea how to feel about Mithril, but the price has gone up by a lot recently so I guess it's worth the time now. With 70m per Mithril, chances are that you can make over 1b Zeny per invested day. Here's how you get into the mines. As for stats, I go for max luk, 100 vit, 100 str, max dex, rest AGI. I change my Wug to a Falcon just like I did with the Goldring Boss, because raw DPS isn't going to help you kill those Crystals. You need On-Hit damage and lots of it. Just like with the GRB, I whip out my 3x Banaspaty Card and 1x Sidewinder Card in a Composite Bow [4. The burn ticks one-shot the crystals. You can completely ignore the Guardians - they don't drop anything worth your while. Yoiu can kill 20 Crystals each time you enter. You can also use an Advanced Mining Pick to kill 30 Crystals. You only need to use the Advanced Mining Pick once per login. After that you can keep using Old Picks and still get 30 kills per entry. If you kill the Guardians, it counts toward it. So if you do get attacked by them, just @jump away. Bring some Yggdrasil Berries with you, because if you die, you will get kicked out of the mine. New and more efficient way: @D e M o N has pointed out that you can use your Firing Trap skill, which makes it even easier and faster to kill Strange Crystals. Mithril by the numbers §5 Crafting Gear So you've probably farmed 4.000 Yggdrasil Berries and 10.000 Gold. You've hit your first billion in only two weeks and now you're burnt out and bored from Ragnarok. So why not have a change of pace and make some high-demand armors, weapons and headgears? To make weapons, you will need your Whitesmith! §5.1 White Wing Sets I like vending the White Wing Sets as two. 2x +7 Suit, 2x Garment, 2x Shoes, 2x Brooch. People obviously tend to prefer buying the full set instead of seperate pieces, especially with the Manteau and Boots which aren't dropped by monsters. There's not much to say about the White Wing Sets. You already know where to get them. Complete some Mora Quests and you're good to go. Each piece is 10 Mora Coins. You want the White Wing Garment and the White Wing Boots. Once you I get 40 Mora Coins I trade them in for the set pieces and begin hunting Anubis for White Wing Suits. I stay there until I get 50-60 White Wing Suits, but I also loot the Staff Of Healing which I sell for 20m ea. after upgrading it to +10. After getting a decent amount of White Wing Suits, I begin upgrading them. To get the Eluniums required, I go to the Althea Tool Dealers and buy Rough Eluniums with my Whitesmith. You can convert them to Eluniums (5x Rough = 1x Elu) at the Armsmith's Place. Now after upgrading, I (hopefully) have two +7 White Wing Suits. Next up I go to abyss_03 to get 2x White Wing Brooch. You can even add enchantments (1 Mora Coin per attempt) and if you're lucky enough you'll get the Expert Archer enchantment, which increases your Long Range Damage by up to 8% per enchantment. With this enchantment, you can easily sell the gear for more than double the original price. So a White Wing Suit with +3 DEX and Lv 3 (+6%) Expert Archer enchantment would be worth at least 200m. Finally, I open up a shop where I sell the sets. Prices: +7 Suit: 70m Garment: 100m Shoes: 100m Brooch: 5m §5.2 High demand +10 weapons My favorite +10 weapons are by far the Crimson Weapons, especially Bows and Daggers. I can easily sell these for 40m each. Another weapon I found easy to farm and sell is the +10 Mes / Scalpel To my surprise, items with 4 slots such as the Various Jur don't sell well and don't bring a good profit. You can sell them for 5-6m each, but in the same time that you'd invest in making 5 +10 Pikes, you could make two or three Crimson Bows or Daggers which sell for a lot more and have way higher demand in the community. There are some other weapons such as the Big Crossbow and the Imperial Spear, but I found that the mobs are too rare or too strong to be worth the time you invest when compared to the Zeny you get. Remember that you don't get the unique elemental status when you use the identifier! Use Magnifiers or your Whitesmith's §5.3 High demand armors/boots/garments I haven't upgraded enough armors to know if it's really Time - Zeny efficient, but here's what I would upgrade if I ever started focussing on that: I don't know the market prices on these!!! +9 Siege Armors +7/+8/+9/+10 Ur's Plate +7/+8/+9/+10 Valkyrie Manteau upgraded with a Safe to +7/+8/+9 Stamp from the Daily Quest Coupon exchanger §5.4 Standard Valkyrie Helmets Yes, I am absolutely serious. It's easier to farm these than you might think. If you ever get bored with farming the same stuff on the same map, you can farm Valkyrie Helmets. There is a demand for Standard Valkyrie Helmets because they're needed to make the God Item Valkyrie Helmet. Personally, I would aim for making 2 or 3 at once so you don't have to travel all those maps to get the cards over and over again. Start with the Bloody Runes as they're the easiest to farm at ra_san05. You can farm with @aloot rate 100. They drop some extra items like those masks and hats which sell for about 1.000 Zeny each. When you have 3.000 of those masks, it adds up. Next up head to odin_tem03 to get the Dark Runes. On both maps, ra_san05 and odin_tem03, I like using my AGI scrolls because the mobs spam decrease AGI - thus decreasing your movement speed and your Zeny per invested time. Finally, I just roam the various maps to get the cards together. While collecting the cards, I check if there's mobs on the map that drop valuable items and make sure to add these items to my @aloot item. Each helmet goes for 250-300m Zeny. §6 Instances As @Aketsu has correctly mentioned: "on this server you can't use healing items (berrys, not even normal potions) in the istances (this include Endless tower, faceworm nest, old glast heim)", so you might have to bring a friend who's going to heal you or help you with the damage for some instances. §6.1 Old Glast Heim - Temporal STR/DEX/AGI/LUK/VIT/INT Boots You can use Ygg Berries/healing items in this instance! It's a long way to get Temporal XXX Boots, but it definitely pays out - Check the Old Glast Heim guide to find out how to enter and finish the instance. To create Temporal XXX Boots, visit the NPC at glast_01 204, 273. You'll first need normal Temporal Boots for the cost of 1 Temporal Crystals. Then you'll have the option to make Temporal XXX Boots of your choice. Each upgrade costs 5 Temporal Crystals. Note that the boots aren't slotted right away. You have to add a slot to them by yourself. There's a chance that you will fail the slot addition, which in turn will destory your boots. Each slot attemp costs another 5 Temporal Crystals. Once you've got your slotted boots, you can add enchants with Coagulated Spells - these are dropped by the mobs inside the instance. CONFIRMED BY EVERADE The success generator is coded as follows for slot addition on Temp Boots: if (rand(1,100) < 60) { mes "[Hugin's Craftsman]"; mes "Arrggg, we failed. Better luck next time."; specialeffect2 EF_PHARMACY_FAIL; close; } Apparently it picks a number from 1 to 100, and if the number picked is below 60, your slot enchantment will fail. This leads me to the conclusion that there is a 40% success rate on adding a slot to Temporal Boots. That's doubled compared to the official rate. Enchantment Info by @Aketsu [...]when you enchant them you can choose the enchant you want and bring it to the max level (example: expert archer level 4) by using Coagulated Spells but you can't choose the "special enchant!". That's why some temporal boots are more rare and cost more than others, for example a Temporal Boots Dex [1] with Expert Archer lvl. 4 (1st enchant that you can choose) and "Muscle Fool" (special enchant that give you Bear Power -> +200 str if I'm right) will probably cost far less than a Temporal Boots Dex [1] with EA 4 and "Hawk Eye" (special enchant that give you +200 dex). That's depend on demand idd. Once you get slotted Temp Boots with good enchantments (for example Expert Archer 4), you can sell them for over 3 billion Zeny. The demand is currently high for the various Temp Boot versions. For additional enchantment info, refer to this guide. §6.2 Face Worm Nest - Gigant Snake Skin, Gigant Snake Skin [1] Because the Gigant Snake Skin has a set bonus with the improved Temporal Boots, it also is in high demand and the slotted versions sells for anywhere from 400m to 1.5b depending on it's enchantments. A normal, non-enchanted, skin with a slot can be worth up to 500m. If you have a skin with 2x +3 DEX and 1x Expert Archer 4, you will definitely find a buyer that will pay more than 1 billion Zeny for it. The Face Worm Nest consists of five separate sections and after clearing each one of them, you'll get one Treasure Chest which either contains a non-slotted Gigant Snake Skin or a Gigant Snake Skin [1]. In total, you have five chances at getting your slotted Snake Skin. Moreover, "the less time you need to finish the istance, the better drop you get! Best drop you can get is Giant Snake Skin from faceworm queen (the last boss) with Special Enchant - +7Stat - +7 Stat - so for example you may get a SpecialVit Enchant - +7 Vit +7 Vit - wich is damn OP. Also you get already upgraded garments, the maximum you can get is +11.". - Courtesy of @Aketsu In this post Aketsu points out how clearing time directly effects the quality of the rewards you get from the Face Worm Nest. §6.3 More Instances I honestly haven't looked into instances too much yet, thus I don't know how strong the monsters there are and if it's worth the time to do them as a solo Ranger. But I think that instances are still worth noting as they are a great change of pace to the boring life that a grinder has. Most instances give you coins which you can exchange into various items. §6.4 Endless Tower For Endless Tower, you want to kindly ask a friend of yours to help you enter it. It offers a lot of MVP chances. You get a guaranteed 20x Biotite and 20x Muscovite. And so many more goodies, such as Matchsticks. Be sure to bring your Tokens Of Siegfried from your Weekend Hunting Packs, just in case you get cheesed by Dark Lord's or Amon Ra's Instant Death skill that recudes your HP to 1. You don't have to use Tokens per se, but I'm too lazy to always climb all the way back up the tower when I die at floor 60 or higher. I do Endless Tower solo with the medium budget build and I get to Level 85. The big ole clock on Level 85 is just too strong for me (yet!) and I don't feel like using all my Tokens of Siegfried for it. On my way there, I have my chance of getting both a Tao Gunka and a Thanatos Card. Be sure to have ALL elemental arrow types. Please do note that gRO has custom Endless Tower levels and that the MVPs you encounter on gRO may differ from the ones stated on the iRO Wiki. §7 Dailies As for dailies, I don't just mean the custom Daily Adventure Guild Quests. There's many more things that you can do every day. §7.1 World Boss World Bosses (Belphegor, Werewolf) spawn at fixed time and drop numerous random items, such as Golden Apples which can be exchanged for a reward and Shadow Set Items, which are goodies that are equipped as Costume Armor. Evil Boss Fragments Obsidian Fragments Werewolf Essence Belphegor Egg Golden Apple Shadow Boxes containg Shadow Set Items Here's the server time (@time) spawns: Automated_Events And a time zone independent World Boss Event Timer Per 24 hour server time rotation, you can only get the boss killing reward three times. So if you've killed Belphegor at @time 11:20, then Werewolf at 16:20, then King Poring at 20:20 and finally Belphegor at 23:20, you won't get any rewards for killing Belphegor at 23:20, because you've already recieved 3 rewards on that 24 hour cycle. Ask to get invited to one of the many World Boss parties to get heals and buffs from the kind priests -Shoutout to all the priests healing and buffing us- Also bring some Yggdrasil Berries and Panaceas (to cure blind/silence). I further suggest you use a Gemini S-58 Card. §7.2 Instances Most instances have a 23hr cooldown, so if you're bored farming Goldrings and Valk Helmets, go ahead and read §6. §7.3 Daily Quests I don't think I have to explain much here. Check the Adventure Guild to find out more about daily quests. You can exchange the coupons you recieve for useful stuff, such as ascended equipment or my beloved Weekend Hunting Packs as well as the +7/+8/+9 upgrade coupons. §7.4 Keep an eye on the market The first thing I do when I log on is check the market and see if I can get a good deal there, and even if I can't I "scan" the item prices there so I always know how much my potential items are or will be worth. I also check the trading topics and @D e M o N's Guide to MvP Cards and Rare Item Prices. §8 Vending Vending/Trading is PVP. I know this statement sounds bold or ridiculous, but let me finish. As a trader/vender you supply other players with gear, usables and Zeny. You selling those +9 Siege Plates, +10 Crimson Daggers and useful cards has a direct impact on WoE and PVP, because if you weren't selling these items, the players would not have these items. Moreover, when you're selling items - especially high-demand items that are sold by other players too -, you're essentially "fighting" other traders for their money. It's not PVP in a sense that you're beating someone in combat, it's PVP that you're beating someone else with your business smarts. One of my favorite techniques is creating item monopolies and enforcing your own price. As an example, I've been one of the few people who have been selling White Wing Sets. One day I see someone selling the sets too for 120m each. So I set up my shop with the same set for 100m each. After a full day of not selling any set item, I further reduced the price to 80m each. Shortly after that, the other trader reduced his price from 120m to only 70m per piece. This is when I decided to buy his pieces myself and put up my shop again where I set the price to 90m each. So in short, I knocked my enemy out of the market while also profiting by 20m per piece and of course selling my own set. When you're selling, you should come up with a price that you're comfortable with increasing or decreasing, just like I did with the White Wing set pieces. Anything from 80m to 120m each is fine for me. The same rule applies when you're making item monopolies, such as with Valhalla Flowers, Musco/Bios, Mithrils. You don't buy these items from other players to craft something from it or to decard item, you buy them to gain an item monopoly and to be the only vendor in the market to sell these items. If you're the only one selling them, you can set your own price. In order for other vendors to compete with you, they'll have to undercut you - and if they undercut you by far, you can just rinse and repeat. You buy their items again. Hypothetically speaking, if your budget is high enough you can do that to create your own MVP card prices. Let's take GTB Card as an example. Your set price on GTB is 800m. You see anyone sell it for below 800m, you just buy it from him. If you want to do this with high value items, just make sure that there also is the demand for it. For example, Kiel, GTB and Moonie cards are always in demand, having the monopoly on these cards can make you very rich. So, TL;DR: Undercutting other vendors may bait them into undercutting you. That is when you buy ALL of his stuff and sell it at your own price. Final note: For this you will need a high, fixed budget. For myself, I have set 2b as my fixed budget. Those are 2b Zeny that I will never spend on anything else than buying out other vendors to create monopolies. §9 Final Words §9.1 Variety is key Even the most seasoned grinders get bored of farming the same mob and map eventually. Make sure you return to my guide every now and then to remind yourself of all the things you can do on gRO to generate Zeny. §9.2 Why the Myst Case/Mimic Cards? I feel like a 250/120 Ranger is strong to oneshot (or one Arrow Storm) all farmable monsters. The Gift Boxes and OBBs won't make you rich, but what else would you put in these slots? It's a bonus you get since you're farming monsters anyway. §9.2 Use the Macro tool! First thing I do when I start the game and log in to a char, is pop all my @aloot macros. See the screenshot here §9.3 Ressources Knowing where to look for information will make your life a whole lot easier. Remember that you can always use @mi, @whodrops and @whereis. And last but not least, here's some useful links and sites that I use almost every day: MvP Cards and Rare Item Price List RateMyServer Item/Mob Database Daily Vote Shop gRO Database gRO Wiki World Boss Event Timer §9.4 Contributors Thank you for taking your time to share your own knowledge and to proofread my wall of text. @D e M o N @Aketsu @Patronus @Khaii I am always open for suggestions and criticism. If you find anything that doesn't sound logical or is not grammatically correct, let me know. It is a long wall of text after all.

    Kazalus' Guide to Sorcery!

    This guide is dedicated to aspiring Sorcerers who seek to be better overall! Please bear with me, I'm a very disorganized person and I tend to have my ideas cluttered. This guide contains: ~"What is the Sorcerer class?" -Pros -Cons ~"Item Build(s)" ~"Important Skills" ~"Gimmicks and Other Stuff I can't seem to remember to mention :<" ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "What is the Sorcerer class?" The Sorcerer class is one of the most versatile classes in Ragnarok. It requires a certain amount of skill for the know-how and a lot more for mastering the class. The Sorcerer specializes in Area of Effect (AoE) skills to take down single or multiple enemies. Their Psychic Wave has the ability to change in Elemental Property depending on their Summoned Elementals (we'll get to that later). Although the Sorcerer class is highly centered to the offensive kind of class, they don't fall short in their numerous defensive skills that many don't see coming. Pros: (and I'm not talking about the players) -High AoE damage -Versatile -Possible support class -Strong class overall Cons: -Low base HP -Not very new-player-friendly -Easily countered by good players -Material and item dependent Don't EVER be fooled by a Sorcerer. Their abilities are numerous and although they are item/gear dependent, never underestimate their abilities to constantly fight back. Item Builds: -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Important Skills: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Gimmicks, Tips n' Tricks, and stuff I keep forgetting to mention :L ANY QUESTIONS?! IT'S 3AM IN THE MORNING MAKE IT QUICK!! Q: What if I need Rough Winds instead of Wind of Verdure (I'm in the same scenario). A: Simply change your 4 Element Analysis to level 2, and trade in at least 4 basic catalysts that match the pure catalyst you want to create. Here is a simple diagram: Wind of Verdure = Rough Wind | Crystal Blue = Mystic Frozen | Red Blood = Flame Heart | Green Live = Great Nature Q: Does the Sorcerer class have any Arch Nemesis? Prey? Like class-counters, weaknesses, strengths etc? A: Apparently yes, here's an explanation for the notable classes: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE! It's been quite a while since I've updated this guide so I'll just leave this here to let you see the guide's update more clearly! Sorcerer Skill Combos You remember the Psychic-Wave-Thunder Storm-Diamond-Dust-rinse-and-repeat offensive combo right? Yeah sure it's good because you can dish out a lot of continuous damage but what about defending yourself? What happens if you're pitted up against someone who is much stronger than you (most commonly someone with strong resist) and get out alive? Well, here are some of my favorite combos to do and it works a lot based on my experience. I'll divide this into three groups (and a bonus!): War of Emperium, Battlegrounds(BG), and PvP/1v1. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let's start with War of Emperium(WoE): DEFENDING A CASTLE Best summon: Ventus 1-P&D, Agni 2-P When you're defending a castle, you get the advantage of setups and bottle-necking the enemy into such positions that you are able to rain down the offensive combo I talked about a while ago. Now, let's show some scenarios. Scenario 1: Scenario 2: Scenario 3: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ATTACKING A CASTLE Here's where things get interesting... most of the time, you're gonna be using Ventus 1-D to enable you to move faster and avoid potentially getting killed by a random spell. Ventus also increases your flee so it's going to be a little harder to hit you with basic attacks and some skills. Scenario 2: Scenario 3: Scenario 4 (For both offensive and defensive strategies): When all else fails, cast Elemental Shield. This "red-button" sacrifices your summon to create a "Pneuma-Safety Wall" barrier on each of your party member's squares who are within your screen. Consider this as a panic button skill which can be used in situations wherein there are multiple people getting hit by Sac, AD, CC, TC etc. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Battlegrounds: I'll be focusing on TDM, and Capture the Flag only. (Conquest, Rush, and Triple Inferno are too much for me to handle right now). TDM: Depending on your team-mates will determine your strategy. Let's assume it's a minimum match (2v2). I will be picking prominent team-ups. Easy Medium Hard Note: For all Scenarios, Diamond Dust plays an important role here.

    13th Cat Zodiac Event 2018

    Heya Gatheringro Players! It's been 13years since Gatheringro officialy launched~ By this, i've created this event to keep us a wonderful memories in our beloved server! This is an exclusive event that will show how we got to this far. So here, we are currently looking for players who're willing to share their creation to become a part of these memories! Introduction: 13th Cat Zodiac Event What are the zodiac animals you ask? Zodiac animals are known as the 12 selected animals, used as the horoscopes in China, There is a little story about how the cat didn't get in on the list even though he is one of the most intelligent one. This is why we are looking for someone who has the ability, to change the history, to have the best original screenshot with the best story to share with. So there you have it! GOODLUCK! Here is the list of zodiac animals by ranking. This picture shows the most heart breaking moment of the cat. (Ohmy those feeeeels!!!) Event start : 23-04-2018 Event End : 14-05-2018 ( before 13-05-2018 23:59 server time) -What am I asking for this : A full original screenshot with www.gatheringro.ch showing at the bottom right. (Do not cut and edit on it.) Do not add your reactions on this page, questions are ok Good ending story See below for more information A Doram class. Only one entry per player ( Lets keep it fair and believe in your own creation ) Your entry should be posted on this thread with your ingame name. -Special rules : Only headgear that can be farmed/made for quest! ( Which mean none costume, Legendary, Event headgears ) *Important!* Here's 2 links that might help you out for searching : Link 1 : Headgears forum Link 2 : Headgears ratemyserver -Judges : GM Team -Prizes : First place : GatheringRO Surprise Box + Costume Black Cat Hood Second place : Surprise Box + Costume Cheshire's Cat Ears Third place : Surprise Box + Costume White and Black Temptation Oh mama FASHION!!!! And here's the story i want you guys to change the history with: (Short or long is fine! What count is the impact it gives!) ORIGINAL STORY : An ancient folk story tells that Cat and Rat were the worst swimmers in the animal kingdom. Although they were poor swimmers, they were both quite intelligent. To get to the meeting called by the Jade Emperor, they had to cross a river to reach the meeting place. The Jade Emperor had also decreed that the years on the calendar would be named for each animal in the order they arrived to the meeting. Cat and Rat decided that the best and fastest way to cross the river was to hop on the back of Ox. Ox, being naïve and good-natured, agreed to carry them both across. Midway across the river, Rat pushed Cat into the water. Then as Ox neared the other side of the river, Rat jumped ahead and reached the shore first. So he claimed first place in the competition and the zodiac Bad ending : The cat drowned in 13th place and did not make it in the zodiac. It is said that is the reason why cats always chase Rats; to get back at them for what they have done. (Please change this bad ending into a good one!) Here's my example : Special thanks for the lovely supports of @Shuichi , amazing gro players who helped me with some certain pictures!~

    Letter To Santa 2018

    Dear Saint Nick This year, there is no item that I wish to pick From your jolly bag of gifts and Yuletide Candy sticks. I come to request, neither card nor gear For what I seek, is far greater I fear. It is for a world that I hold very dear To my heart and mind do the memories sear. I expect it not to be granted so But I just wanted you to very well know That the ones at the top of your nice list Are those who hide beyond this holiday's mist. Those who toil and constantly persist To make us smile all year long- they have been missed. Please do grant some coffee for the GM Team To make them smile and their eyes gleam. Leave them a bottle of holiday wine That they too, with joy, dine. For they have been giving gifts all year long So giving them a gift would do no wrong. Every update they've done was with toil and thought Bugs they've fixed have not been for naught. For they have players to appreciate Their support and funds to donate So Saint Nick, For get not to give them their gifts! They are people too not machines that kink! I pray that a single finger from your hand lifts To grant the GM Team their own wish~ My name is Kazalus, Soul of Joachym Roa Age of the 18 With a slate not entirely clean Rest assured I mean well Surely, you can tell. And as my own, selfish, desire I request one that is to be noticed One GM who's heart was on fire That gave opinions of deep thought that sire A strong bond with a game that was more than a game Lend thy ears to one they call Khai His words are priceless as those up high I pray you all be well and rarely tire!

    To make BG, mining more enjoyable

    Here's my suggestion : I actually think by adding Shadow equips for the BG wil keep the popularity Worth : 2500~3000 Heroism badges each ( We can also keep it as a box so it wil be based on luck too for the part that they want.) Also a method to make it a little easier for them to refine it ..... Mining : Add - All kind of refining ores to the drops Examples : Enriched , HD ores~ at drop chance of 0,5% maybe. Blessed ores at 0,05% since it should remain rare. ( getting ores by mining does make senses i guess :p.. We can compare it to rare ores such as : opal,sapphire,ruby etc etc and blessed as diamond. ) A new - Brave Warrior Box - for the 1 that get the special invading monster , and keep the surprise box for the last invading. What does Brave Warrior box gives : Chance for 3x enriched elu/ori , 3x HD ores ( bradium,oridecon,elunium etc etc...), 1 piece of silverine fruit . Not a large amounts but stil wil get some players motivated i guess :p... - and yeah ps. The Safe armor/weapon certificate shouldnt be implemented for the shadow equips. Want a good refined ones? BG , Mining , invadings is your friend This wil keep the BG active for a long time. And yeah, leave your opnion !~ Cheers!

    Ichi's Basic PvP Guide for Shadow Chaser

    Welcome to a guide for the most annoying class in the game! This is my first time to make a guide so please bear with me and be ready to the incoming Wall of Text but i'll try my best not to make it one 🤣and i guarantee that it will be worth to read. I decided to create this guide because i believe SC plays a very important role to a guild and It is a very fun char to play and i can guarantee that to you, and still it's my favorite char in the game but i don't know why i don't see a lot of players playing it. To me, SC is not an expensive char to build but needs time and practice to be able to play effectively and is only reliant on a single MVP card which is Kiel D-01 Card and proper switching of items mid-battle. Why SC? Stat Build: My Shadow Chaser's Item Set Guide! Following the way i play the char, the cards and gears you will see mostly revolves around being able to stay longer in the fight, rather than dealing burst damage. "Let's toy with them first and kill them slowly as it's more fun watching them helplessly annoyed watching themselves die slow without being able to struggle much anymore", as a lot of you may not believe, i got this from Mitsu's mentality of playing SC as she was one of those people who taught me SC when i was new to the game 🤣 It makes a SC get a higher win rate in BG too, as to me BG is not all about killing, delaying enemies can secure a win for your team too. Continuing: Weapons: Headgears: Armors: Garments: Footgears: Shields: Accessories: Shadow Chaser Skill Set: In this part i'm only going to talk about the skill that are of relevant use to me. Lets start with the copy skill. The presence of a good SC player itself forces enemies to be wearing GTB as their shield cards due to the threat of being disabled by different masquerade skills which prevents them from using Thara Frog card to make them tankier, to use Two-hand weapons which makes them deal heavier damages, or to use Maya card which to reflect single target skills, and is also pretty much a big threat for magic users that relies on Goldring Boss Card to get their skills through against GTB users, and to rangers that are on their Bow most of the time. A pretty big space that good SC players can provide for their guild don't you agree? Basic SC Combos: Shadow Chaser Battle Guide! Most of the content you'll get to read here are from my experiences battling these chars and what i did to win against them WoE Guide for Shadow Chaser Well this is it for the guide for now. I hope you guys would learn something out of it. I'm ready to accept any kind of criticism 🤣 You can tell me on the comment section if you got any advice that i can add, or if you have any questions. I'm not a pro on the char, i'm just sharing what i know about it. Good luck and have fun using Shadow Chaser! ❤️ Special thanks to : Kazalus - For teaching me stuffs about making a guide. Khai - Best SC in the server imo and one who teached me most. Vio - for the knife[4] and cutter[4] idea. To everyone in the Varia guild. To Everade and GatheringRO server

    World Boss Nuisances

    Have no sense, Vio, you always were luring me those mobs to me anytime you could with your summoner, and now you can notice by yourself how annoying it is? I asked you many times to stop that. It would be enough if players can report who is luring those mobs to players in purpose like you did to me weeks ago. I also had to report you with a GM because it was annoying if you have 100%+ neutral resist and others are hitting the mob, then happen: It take more time to kill Belphegor (in this case) if hitters are receiving anytime a Comet in their faces only for a joy of troll person. Also, GMs have to take in consideration this fact and take care seriously those kind of reports.

    13th Cat Zodiac Event 2018

    IGN: Gabriela Wodemeiren PS. I AM SO SORRY ABOUT THIS SUPER LONG POST. I AM FORUM NOOB >_< The river's current was so strong that it carried the unconscious Cat to an unknown land. This new land was vibrant with different shades of yellow and green. However, why were there chunks of cheese here and there? After a few hours, Cat was startled awake by a big mountain of a cat with a chef hat resting on top of his head. Without much questions the giant cat led Cat to an outdoor restaurant which was bustling with all kinda cats in different shapes and sizes. Cat was amazed for she has never seen so many cats in one area before. The news of the Great Zodiac Race was the hottest gossip in town. Some laughed and some pitied the foolish cat for being deceived by Rat. Cat stiffened in her seat and hung her head down as she held back tears. Suddenly, a giant plate of mushroom pancake was placed in front of her. Her stomach gave a loud rumbled and she blushed. Chef gave her a small smile and nodded. Cat took one bite and almost swooned from the mere deliciousness of the pancake. How can something so simple be so fluffy and divine? The mushroom mixed in with the syrups melted on her tongue and slid down her throat like smooth wine. It was within that moment that Cat's life will be changed forever. Chef took a liking to Cat and took her under his wings and treated her like she was his own kitten. He taught her how to bake and cook and was amazed at how Cat seem to absorbed everything in like a sponge. His greatest surprise was the power she had within her little paws. The legend was told that only one cat every 99 years were born with the power of the Golden Paws. They were known to be the greatest at producing the best bread, pizza, pasta or any goods that needed to be knead. The news traveled all across Lasagna and everyday the restaurant was jammed pack with customers. One day in December, a well-tailored fat cat came into the restaurant. He was sent down by the Head Chef of the Jade Emperor's palace to look for a chef for the upcoming New Year's Banquet. Cat whipped up her famous mushroom pancake and served it to the fat cat. "OHO~ This is spectacular!!" exclaimed the fat cat. He slumped to the ground and fell into a catnap. After a few hours, he woke up and exclaimed that Cat must go with him to the palace at once. Cat was hesitant about going because she still felt ashame and bitter about the outcome of the Great Zodiac Race. Later on that day, Chef persuaded Cat to go and assured her that she will always have a home in Lasagna. On the day of her departure, Cat was sent off by Chef, her fellow co-workers and friends. Cat was amazed by sight of the Jade Palace and with the HUGE kitchen. WHEW! The kitchen was even bigger than the whole town of Lasagna. On the day of the banquet, Cat was introduced to the Jade Emperor and the twelve members of the Zodiac. Rat recognized Cat right away and laughed in her face. "Puhahahahah~ Once a loser will always be a loser!" The urge to claw the Rat and roast him over an open fire was strong, but in the presence the Jade Emperor all Cat could do was smile. Once in the kitchen, Cat had many thoughts of sabotaging Rat's plate to make him suffer like how she suffered. However, Cat realized that she hadn't suffered at all. It was more like a blessing in disguise. She was able to meet Chef and her many friends in Lasagna. Even if she wasn't acknowledge as a member of the Zodiac, but wouldn't it better to be acknowledged by people who really cared about you? Cat smiled as she happily prepared the feast for the New Year's Banquet. Everyone complimented on how delicious and fluffy the mushroom pancakes were. The feast was a huge success and the Jade Emperor summoned Cat into the dining hall. He was impressed with the feast and offered a position in the the royal kitchen to Cat. Cat bowed and humbly declined the Jade Emperor as she wants nothing more than to return home to Lasagna. The Jade Emperor nodded in understanding and granted her the title, The Golden Paw Cat. Cat returned home and became the most famous chef in all of Midgard. There has even been rumors that the Jade Emperor would send fat cat over to get an order of freshly made mushroom pancake.

    Most of the time a few players are playing bg to achieve the "dailies reward". As soon as they get their 5 wins they quit or help the other guys to get the reward aswell. When this cycle is over most of them stop to play bg for the whole day. The "dailies reward" system is something rly used nowadays but in this case is not rly helping to increase the amount of players playing bg. From the other side removing it will probably end up in less ppl playing bg... At this point my suggestion is to increase the "steps" of the rewards, so: 5 wins - +100 badges (+ a low chance of winning the chests we already have, 1-2% sound ok) 10 wins - +100 badges (+ a low chance of winning the chests we already have (1-2%chance) + a chance of winning a safe refine certificate beetween +6 and +8 (5-10%) 20 wins - +150 badges (+ a low chance of winning the chests we already have + a low chance of winning a safe refine certificate beetween +7 and +9 (10%) This might look OP but to win 20 times you will need some hours of bg play time (that's idd an hard work). I'm sure this will make bg more attractive giving to everyone the chance to get multiple sets (for switching purpose and for different classes) and also get some certificate to upgrade their stuffs. Hope to get positive feedbacks as this will help to increase ppl playing bg and having better gears to be competitive in WOE.

    True Monster Cards Balancing

    Hello I'm having thoughts about the new cards that just released recently [click for True details] Soo... for my first impression: just like the Old Headgears that already released on Hunter Shop months ago -these new cards are really nice and helpful in PvM life!! BUT when they're used at PvP environment, it might give discomforts for the victims of those cards user Example? True Howard Alt-Eisen card and here's another cool example True Eremes Guile card There are still other nice cards for example too, but here are the things about it: Tests were done without Memory of Thanatos card Target with 1m+ HP died in less than 3 seconds when the attacker wore 2x Kiel-D-01 card Additional data for comparison: Around 37,200+ Axe Tornado damage, Similar build with Well-geared Mechanic with Emperium gears one, and switched the True Howard Alt-Eisen card with the Memory of Thanatos card So it's around 54,000+ with Howard and 37,200+ with Thanatos -with similar gears, the only difference in weapon cards Damage can be boosted further if added Battlegrounds/Emperium gears The cards are mostly very helpful in dealing more damage with less MVP cards, which is good for hunting purpose, and more newbie friendly than the Memory of Thanatos card, for example The problem that I'm pointing at: If balancing attempt applied to the card effects (i.e.: reducing the damage bonus), PvM life will receive major loss. Why? The cards are as good as Old Headgears (i.e.: True Cecil Damon Card + Old Camouflage Rabbit Hood, they completed each other for Cluster Bomb bonus. But if the card effect got reduced for PvP balancing purposes, it would be like pretty much useless in PvM) In the end, here is my thought related to the things above: The first thing that came into my mind was: Would it be possible if the card effects applied only outside PvP just like the old Camouflage Rabbit Hood, for example. And being added like halved effect that works on PvP, or any proper amounts of effect that might be more balanced for PvP environment That's it, hope the thoughts can be used for consideration in balancing attempts Thank you

    Doram Lasagna Island Guide!

    Source: https://forums.warpportal.com/index.php?/topic/207656-doram-lasagna-island-guide/ Step 1: Start off by talking to Vigilante Ajegna. He tells us we need to find Vigilante Aglio. Aglio asks us to kill 3 Eggring. After killing the 3 Eggrings, he gives us one Apple Juice and asks us to drink it. After drinking the Apple Juice, Aglio gives us: New weapon in hand, he asks us to kill Eggrings and recover one Delivery Box. After giving up the box to Aglio, he sends us on our way into town! Sidequests: On our way to town, we run into Well -Known Trouble Maker. He asks us to kill 3 Leaf Lunatics and 2 Grass Fabres in 10 min. Completing this quest awards 180 Base and Job Exp. Further up the road, we encounter Sloth. He needs our help picking Red Grass. He needs 2 Red Herbs and to hunt 3 Red Grass. Turning these into Sloth gets us Base and Job Exp as well as 20 Delicious Anchovy, 10 Novice Fly Wings, and 10 Novice Butterfly wings. Step 2: In town we meet the Tool Merchant. Taking to him gets us: 10 Free Ticket for Kafra Storage, 5 combination Kits, and a White Shirt [1]. After giving us our new gifts, we need to go see Haru the Healer. She notices our combination kit and asks us to bring her 1 Red Herb. After bringing her the item, talk to her about Medical Botany. She will award us with Base and Job Exp. Next, we need to use our new knowledge and make a Novice potion by using one Combination Kit. After making the Novice Potion, Aglio appears north of Haru. Aglio needs us to go meet his leader in the town square. Step 3: After following the Navigation, we run into the Vigilantes guide. Ask him about the leader. He will tell us where to go. Following the arrows into the town square runs us into Chief Peperoncino. The Chief directs us to Vigilantes Olio. Olio fills us in on the background of Lasagna and gives us some new shoes and exp. He wants us to join the Vigilantes. To join, we need to talk to the Chief. He decides if we can pass his test we can get in. Step 4: Talking to the Chief warps you away to a small room with the Chief and a Basilisk Prisoner. Our mission to join is make the Basilisk talk, to do so we need to go out in the forest and gather 5 Hard Thorn Vines. You are warped to the town square to start your hunt. Head down to the bottom right corner and out into the forest on the right. After gathering our 5 Thorny Vines go back to the town center and talk to the Chief to get warped back into the room with the basilisk. After warping back into the room, talk to Jindou to turn the branches into a whip. Use the flute on the basilisk until he talks. He can't handle the phat beats. After making him talk, we get our reward. We can choose between: Step 5: After making the basilisk talk, talk to the chief. We passed the first test, and need to go meet the next proctor for the second part. We need to find Tali in the north west of the village. Tali has us teaching Roda Frogs a lesson, we need to hunt Roda Frogs and get 2 Luxurious Cloths. After killing the Roda Frogs and gathering the Cloth, Tali is going to make us some official Vigilantes clothing. It takes time, so we need to go back to the chief to will time. Step 6: The Chief is pleased that we were able to beat Tali's quest, so he awards us with a boarding pass. Boarding Pass in hand, it is time to talk to the Boarding Attendant. He instructs us to head north. Eggling gives us a Kahlunac and sends us on our way. Step 7: We find ourselfs on board a boat, and we need to talk to Purser. Purser tells us to talk to the captain, go back up the stairs and into the portal in the middle. Now we need to meet the recorder. Go back into the main room, and go up the long hallway. Take the portal on the first right. After talking to Recorder, go back into the hallway and continue up to the very top portal. Here, we meet the Sous Chef, after a brief chat with him, go back to Purser in the main hallway. Then go back to the Chef. After listening to him rant, talk to him and tell him you are here to learn to cook. After learning too Cook, talk to Purser again, then report back to the first officer, Stello. He gives us 20 Novice Flywings and some Base and Job Exp. Now head out of the ship via the portal you came in at the top of the stairs. Step 8: We passed the training on the boat, so now it is time to put our abilities to the test. Head down to meet Vigilantes to get your instructions on how to deal with Dragon. We need to head over to his cave and see what is up. Sidequests: Gather 3 Basilac Clams. These drop from Basilisks, you can find them one map east of Lasagna. Turning the 3 Clams in gets you: 10 Tasty Anchovies and 450 Base and Job Exp. Fisher is sick of the Desert Wolfs stealing all the Fish. He wants us to kill 10 Baby Desert Wolfs. Killing 10 Wolfs gets you 600 Base EXP and 1200 Job Exp. After arriving at the Dragons Lair, we must venture in to see what is going on. So we venture through he dungeon to the end where we meet the Vigilantes member, he helps us into a deeper layer of the cave. On this floor, we need to make our way to the center. The cave is full of Scout Basilisks, they are weak on their own, but they can mob you and use Fury. So we make our way to the middle of the cave and here we meet the dragon... After learning more about our "Dragon" friend, we decide to help him by killing 20 Basilisk Scouts. After killing 20 Basilisks, our friend the Dragon is going to go to sleep. Adios.

    Ranger for Newbies

    Purpose Showing you an option about how to start your Ranger So, before we start this, let me tell you that there are many many ways to start your day as a Ranger. Here I'm sharing you my way Here are some helpful commands (Source: Adventure Guild - Daily Challenges [Link]) Let's begin!! Target #1: Be a Level 250 Ranger .... Just follow the arrows on the floor. Ask for being warped to Althea Or just walk to another portal, and type @go 0 ... First, warp to prt_fild01 to level up Go to Althea, and change Job into an Archer at the Job Master. Here's more detailed info about Job Tree (source: Job / Class Information) .... Archer now? warp to cmd_fild02, get more level. Use Double Strafe or Arrow Shower to attack multiple enemies at once Once you reached base level 95, meet Mercenary Service at the 7 o'clock direction of Althea Fountain. Get ~10x Fencer Scroll 9 [#12171] Don't have zeny? new to gRO? .... Hunt bigger targets. Warp to thor_v03, kill [Bow Guardian] using Steven's Bowling Bash*. *CTRL+R, open his skill window, and put Bowling Bash on your Hotkey. If you die, Steven Mercenary will leave you. So, keep @jump to survive the mob attacks. Keep changing Job to the higher ones. But stop on Sniper and reach 250 Base Level first before changing into a Ranger. Else, you’ll have harder times in increasing the Base Level. .... When you are a Ranger, get some job levels and max out those skills first. You can get more skills if you want to .... Target #2: Status Build Make something like this Here's the explanation .... Target #3: Get Prepared for Hunting Need arrows? Find Althea Guide around the Althea Fountain, and go to Supply Shop. You can find the Archery Tool Dealer there .... Need cheaper arrows? Go to , find the Tool [email protected] mora 106 112 and buy the arrows. Turn them into Quivers at Quiver Master. So, you’ll need 3,000z in total while Elf’s Arrow Quiver at Althea’s Archery Tool Dealer costs 60,000z per Quiver. .... Here are some self-buff skills that might help during battles .... Gears to start with? Look below .... Ok, now your Ranger is good enough for Hunting better gears [ref1] [ref2] [ref3] Participating the World Boss Events[WBE] Getting Gears for more Movement Speed [Link] .... fyi: There's also an alternative outfit for Rangers ....

    - Freezing and Burning can now occur at the same time (can be stacked) - Negative MDEF does no longer exist and is treated as 0 instead. Before, negative hard MDEF have increased any incoming magic attacks. - Some updates to the max recovery weight of 70% - Implemented several missing, official map restrictions Guild Storage - The new guild storage increase skill has been adapted to reach up to 600 items again instead of just the official 500. - All existing guilds -> storage skill lvl has been increased to lv5 for everyone - All existing guilds -> all members have now storage permission This helps with the problem that you can re-access the guild storage in case your guild master is no longer actively playing gRO. All guild leaders are now required to take away the guild storage permission for those positions needed. Newly created guilds (after this update) are not affected and will have to level up the skill normally, and handout the storage permissions accordingly. Forums - Facebook and Twitter forum Sign-Up and Login integration has been fixed and is back available.

    Santa Letter Event 2017

    Hiellow Santa! Its me Sissney. First of all sorry for the late letter but I have been very busy bothering helping people! And kinda forgot to write to you. By now you should have already most things finished and all letters read, but I suppose a few late ones will still make the cut; I hope so at least~ Our mailing destributor went on vaccations before we could write our letters! Now we have a new destributor that guaranteed me that they could deliver to the north pole in less than 1 hour; I hope they can so my letter gets to you before everything is complete. If anything I belive the players will understand if you get their gifts late, so, let's say day 28? I sincerely hope our letters can still make it! cuz we'll be sending them eitherway~ P.S - there'll be cookies and milk for you AND all the elfs, if you accept :3 Thaaankies~~~~ xoxo Sissney ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------///////////-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sissney You have got some nerve young lady! Not only you are on one of the top positions of the naughty list, you even write me to ask to take your letters in!? Even bribe me with milk and cookies! Not too long ago you also rampaged through my factory to wreck avoc! Although true you also summoned adventurers to help us defeat the Novice Figure... That you brought to life! Let's see: Sissney - Annoying others; bothering others; being excecively loud; pranking players; tricking people; being an overall pain in the butt; etc etc etc... The list goes on for about five more lines! On the other hand non the less... You've done so with a pure heart, withouth the intention to harm others. And you're here asking me to take in consideration the players letters, nothing more. Such a selfless act won't go unnoticed. Very well. Tell the players they can send their letters, I shall see what I can do. Non the less we are mostly set, and I do not have much supplies left to thinker with; I belive I won't be able to take in more than 2 requests... Perhaps a 3rd if there's a lot of letters... After checking our storage I'm afraid I'm all out of god items and god ingredients, most mvp cards are also rulled out; I'll try and strike a deal with your Landlord, Mr.Everhard and see if I could obtain some of the cards he sells in his Shop. Lastly my elfs are very tired, and the effort they will put into this is already considerable, so they won't refine any items you may ask for. The letters written to me will need to contain at least this 3 things: Ingame name, age, and the present they wish for. Real names may also be added if they wish. I'll only take letters untill the 24th of December, untill 23:59:59 in the night; after that will be too late. Best regards, Santa Claus. And the Elfs. P.S -You better come forth with those milk and cookies. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------///////////-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And that's how I met your father kids. Just kidding! Before anything happy holidays!!!1!!!11!1 *instert wavehorn effect here * So so, as you've seen, Santa is already on the ropes with all he's been doing, but will still take into consideration a few letters. He's known for being very strict with his letters, so make sure you follow his instructions carefully! "Ingame name, Age, and item you wish for". No more than 1 item of the same type will be brought, so be carefull with what you ask for! Considering he is doing this for us, I belive we should at least decorate our letters in some way! No need to be an image, just be imaginative and creative! That might get santa's attention ;3 Here's how it should go in a standart way: "Dear Santa, My name is XXX ingame and my real name is XX - I am XX years old. I'd really like to have an Elephant Hat, it's one of my favourite headgears! Hopefully you can fulfill my wish. Yours, XXX " Depending on the number of letters there might be 2 or 3 winners; One will be chosen by Santa(the one that appeals to him the most), the second shall be through a random number generator where Santa will place all the letters and pick one randomly. The third will be chosen by the Elfs as they should also have a saying in the matter! Right, lastly; only one letter for person. I will be doing IP checks, and if anyone is caught doing a double entry, you can be sure there'll be harsh consequences. You've been advised. Any questions feel free to pm me in here or in Discord; I'll make sure to answear ASAP! - - - Merry christmas and happy holidays everyone, from the GM Staff! - - - P.S - Special thanks to Holly Enix, creator of the letter event.

    Dear Claus, I am Violentia and my real name is Avarice, You will address me as Vio. I am 45 years old. My behavior this year has been questionable this year. But enough about me.. I hear you are granting wishes. So I have decided to write you because I want Rainbow Sash for Christmas. Why you might ask? Because I need it. It is as simple as that. You will find that it is in your best interest to fulfill my wish at any cost or your precious Mrs. Claus may not be around for another Christmas. Regards, Violentia

    Althea Renovation

    Translation: <Insert Job Class or Skill Here> Is too OP! Nerf it because I cannot compete with it. Seriously? When you face something you cannot kill or compete with, you immediately want it to be nerfed/disabled/rebalanced? When it was bloodlust, players wanted the skill disabled. (It now has 1 second non-reducible cast time) When it was Gate of Hell, players wanted it to be nerfed. When it was shield spell (healing), players wanted it to be nerfed. When it was Soul Expansion, players wanted it to be nerfed. (It has gone through several revisions already) When it was Overbrand, players wanted it to be nerfed. When it was Sharpshooting, someone wanted it to be "balanced" because they died in 2 hits. it got nerfed in the end. Now it's Axe Tornado? What is next on the list to be nerfed because some players can't handle it when someone is stronger or has an advantage over them?
