    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. The new fountain also helps to better advertise the available services which sometimes have not even been noticed by new players. 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.

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.

    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!~

    Rota's complete guide to grinding

    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. 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. NOT CONFIRMED I don't know how the random coding is generated on this server, but here's the NPC coding I found for slot addition on Temp Boots: set [email protected] random,rand(1,100); if ([email protected] random <= 80) Apparently it picks a number from 1 to 100, and if the number picked is below 80, your slot enchantment will fail. This leads me to the conclusion that there is a 20% success rate on adding a slot to Temporal Boots. If anyone can please check or confirm this for me, I would be happy to update my guide. NOT CONFIRMED, INFO BY @Aketsu 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: 03:20 - Belphegor 07:20 - Werewolf 11:20 - Belphegor 16:20 - Werewolf 20:20 - Belphegor 23:20 - Werewolf Per 24 hour server time rotation, you can only get the boss killing reward three times. So if you've killed Belphe at @time 11:20, then Werewolf at 16:20, then Belphe at 20:20 and finally Werewolf at 23:20, you won't get any rewards for killing Werewolf 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 iRO Wiki §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.

    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.

    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.

    Santa Letter Event 2017

    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

    BG WINS REWARD

    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.

    Equipment Switch Suggestion♥

    Hey hey~ I don't know if this was suggested before but I really would like to suggest the Equipment Switch Function ♥ http://ragnarok.wikia.com/wiki/Costume_System#Costumes I know other does it with putting eq on skill bar but its impossible for me because all my skill spaces are full, even the additional ones I have at least 3 sets to switch, one for healing, spamming and dmg. And an additional hybrid set...and much more. Since i play full support, hybrid and sometimes battle magic for fun.. And it would be a relief at last switching one equipment. Hmm also if its tooooo op we could get something like a switch cooldown from 1~2 min? so we cant change all eq like constantly idk.... it's just always so time-consuming to switch every eq .___. Also, I don't know ifits much work client and coding wise, but this is only a suggestion ♥

    Equipment Switch Suggestion♥

    This features requires a new client. I've been testing them already, although it's always extremely hard to find a working one which complies with our customizations. The last 5 client versions i've been testing had entirely broken features or had compatibility issues with specific features. That's the main reason why we do not update clients more frequently.

    Santa Letter Event 2017

    Dear Santa, Hi Santa! It's me Pitou and my real name is Sadam. I am 26 years old. I know that this might sounds weird but we have already met before. I'm guessing that you wouldn't remember it, but I will refresh your memory of our first encounter. During Christmas of 2016, I was worried when the Letter to Santa event didn't happen. So, I tried to talk to some people and asked why the event didn't happen. Some people said that you have been kidnapped and then others said that you have been in a toys factory that had been closed. However, one story caught my attention and the evil spirit lurking around the toys factory. That was when I decided to gear up and head out on a journey. I decided to teleport to the town of Lutie and that was where I was greeted by a weird skull faced girl named Cathering Jet Johnson. She happens to be an employee of the facory and also the assistant of the doll maker. She told me the story of the doll maker who died from a heart condition after making her last doll which she named "Celine Kimi". All of the doll maker's sweat, blood and tears have brought Celine Kimi to life. However, seeing her loving maker dying gave poor Celine Kimi extreme distress and she had believed that she was the cause of her maker's death. Celine Kimi became evil and attacked Catherine and changed her face into a skill and discharged her from the factory. Catherine asked me to help her defeat the evil spirt that had brought some of the toys to life. I entered the horror toy facory and disguised myself as a toy as to not raise any suspicion. I made my way into the middle of the factory where I had the biggest shocked of my life. There was TWO Santas. However, one was tied up while the other had an ugliness aura radiating around him. The tied up Santa called the other man "Antonio" and demanded that he returned some stolen toys. After assessing the situation, I rushed in to help untie the rope but the weird looking man took that moment to flee. You asked me to help you find him and to return all the toys that he stole. I thought to myself that this was my chance to help Santa and ask about the "Letter to Santa 2016" event. I agreed to help and rushed after Antonio. After dodging some obstacles I finally found the culprit and obtained the stolen toys. I brought the items back to you and you rewarded me with some bloody coins. I started to ask you about the event but was suddenly interrupted by Catherine. She said that the danger isn't over yet and that Celine Kimi still needed to be stopped. After battling Celine Kimi for awhile, I finally defeated her and rushed back to you. I wanted to hand you my letter personally but by the time I got back.. you were already gone. The content of that letter was to ask you to grant my one and only wish to have a the "Rainbow Sash" (#63340). but a year is already pass. so i would like to wish again a Rainbow Sash for this christmas. I hope that you'll make my wish come tru. Wishing you a merry Christmas. - Sadam
