Ragnarok Online 2 is of course the sequel to Ragnarok Online. It is free to play with a cash shop. I will give a quick rundown of the game and some important information. There is practically zero information on the internet concerning this game (open beta started in January) so I will attempt to let you know everything I have learned thus far.http://www.playro2.com/Server
Freyja - This is the "english" speaking server. This is also where my guild lives. So if you want to play I strongly suggest this server.Class System
In the beginning of the game you choose from 1 of 5 classes.
Swordsman, Thief, Archer, Magician.
After reaching level 25 you can impart on your class change quest! The class change quest is incredibly easy.
Swordsman -> Knight(tank) - Warrior(2h Sword DPS)
Swordsman starts the game with 1H sword and heavy armor. Pretty much your classic warrior type class. The Knight is the only class in the game that can equip shields, thus making them the tank class, because you know...shields or whatever. Warrior is pretty cool, he wears heavy armor and hits things with a big ass 2h sword.
Thief -> Rogue(Dual Dagger DPS) - Assassin(Fist Weapon DPS)
Main melee DPS class. I haven't really messed around with these too much but the Assassin looks pretty crazy. If you like poking stuff with sharp things this might be the class for you.
Archer -> Ranger(Bow Ranged DPS) - Beastmaster(Shapeshifter Melee DPS)
Straight forward ranged class. Unless you decide to go Beastmaster. The Beastmaster uses spears and can turn into 3 different animals. A tiger, a bear, and a grizzly bear. (bears look awesome btw)
Acolyte -> Priest(Heals!) - Monk(Melee DPS)
Your classic healer. Priest is the best healer in the game, great single target and AOE heals. Monk is an interesting melee DPS/hybrid.
Magician -> Wizard(Fiery caster DPS) - Sorcerer(It does damage and has heals?)
Your AOE caster damage. Sorcerer has some heals which I am not entirely sure what to think about it.Dual Class
At the beginning of the game when you are picking your class you also get to pick your profession. It would be beneficial to pick the class that benefits your main class. Gathering materials for each craft is pretty straight foward. You either pick the materials up from around the world, plants or mining nodes, or you kill creatures and skin them.
Blacksmith - Crafts weapons and heavy armor. (I am a knight so i took this, it was a good idea)
Artisan - Crafts leather armor. (Rogues/Archer etc)
Alchemist - Crafts potions
Cook - Crafts foods. (Food is how you regenerate health rapidly out of combat. There are also buff foods, ie +5 str for 60 minutes etc)
Tailor - Crafts robes and what not for magicians.Stats
Stat system is fairly cut and dry. You level up you get some points. Most classes will allocate their stats into the main two. For example Knight, 40 STR 40 VIT 8 AGI. That will be my final stat allotment until they increase the level cap.
STR - Increases physical dmg and increases parry rate
VIT - 6 HP per point.
AGI - Increases hit rate/crit/dodge
INT - Increases SP and magic damageSkills
You get one skill point everytime you level up. Hit T to open your skill window and then put your point into the fanciest sounding skill!! Remember its a Korean game so...translations can be a little bit weak sometimes.Card System
If you ever played Ragnarok Online you remember the Card System. Well they have switched it up for this game. You still get cards off of monsters you kill but instead of putting them into weapons/armor, you equip them onto your character. You have 5 card slots that are unlocked every 10 levels. The cards can have some pretty good stats on them.
You can also combine 5 cards to get a +1 card. I have not messed with this very much. More testing to come.Challenges
This game has a neat system called Kafra Challenges. You need to start the challenge by accessing the challenge window. Once you have done that you can run around and complete said challenge (kill 14 whatever). This is a great way to get some extra experience, titles, money. Some challenges require points to start them.Titles
Titles in this game give you stat bonuses. There are some pretty dang good ones out there.Dungeons
There are a number of dungeons and raids in the game. There is also a dungeon finder to try to help you find a group faster. The dungeons are pretty entertaining and a little difficult.Pandora Boxes
Monsters will randomly drop Pandora Boxes and Pandora Mallets. You use Mallets to open Boxes for some awesome loot. Each class has "Pandora Weapons" You can equip this after you change jobs. This weapons basically destroy everything up until level 50 gear. If you get boxes, open them and hopefully you get your weapon. Rings/necklaces/earrings/ornaments also drop from the boxes, crafting stuff etc etc. You can purchase Mallets from Kafra Service girls. They cost 1z (1 gold) per mallet.Summary
Well I cant really think of anything else to put on here at this time.
