Dawn of Midgard
Pre-Renewal (Episode 11.2)
Previous thread: >>127382550
I found the infinite cash shop exploit and never shared it with anyone (except one friend) until the server was already dead. Nobody ever actually exploited it besides me and it didn't kill the server in any way. What killed the server was incompetent staff not delivering on promised content and it'll happen again.
It was populated, made a huge amount of mistakes, was defended despite a lot of fuckups for a long time until the really big fuckups appeared and then the whole server just bailed out nearly instantly.
The real confusion is on where the fuck all these people are coming from, and how did they find out about this server?
I was doing too and I also never shared it with anyone.
It wasn't rocket science, don't be stupid. You would have to be retarded to think people didn't find out.
I wouldn't even be surprised if the reason cookie flipped out was that he found about people doing it and saw no solution except a massive rollback so he just said 'fuck it' and leave
it's ``professional,'' please don't fuck up your ``faggot quotes''
I don't want to say too much about it, but I can say with 100% certainty that no, nobody but me abused it. I was given proof of this.
>you're talking about orphal
No, I'm talking about the ''dev team´´ that couldn't fix an amateurish server problem.
Why are you cucks so defensive about that reddit server?
Why the fuck I would help some redditors?
>They changed servers today, that was the solution
And it was posted here yesterday, so you cucks could tell it to these incompetents.
Are you a retarded cuck?
Yes, is rhetoric, tardo.
I used to browse /wpsg/ quite a lot, so I'm well acquainted with server shitposting, however, /wpsg/ is usually on point with how bad private servers are, thus why I took what was said here with some credibility.
guy talking about how bad DoM is here, I'm still playing on it. the server really is mediocre and will die within a few months, but it's 2016, the game is over 13 years old and there are no good alternatives. you suck it up and play there or you don't play.
if this is your first time and you aren't desperately trying to get the feeling you first had when you played the game over 10 years ago, just don't bother. play something else instead.
lol /rog/ naysayers BTFO
enjoy RO in a big fresh server ppl, we dont know how much it might last
>mfw lelkekcucks, irocucks, and ayyvacucks got BTFO
>/rog/cucks actually cheer over something simple being fixed over a week
You're all a bunch of fucking retards cheering on your favourite shitty server for fixing something that shouldn't be an issue in the first place.
Enjoy your shitty poring slapping garbage 10 years old game
>30% of 285 is tired of your shit
>he thinks that is something zinnia should worry about
Why are tryhard WoE guilds always like this? Self-important assholes, it's a video game
I remember playing iRO back in the open beta shortly after Izlude was added. Man, GM Christy was awesome. She hung out with players and bullshitted with them in Engrish. Good times.
Why can no private servers ever give me those good feelings again?
>less than 2000 onlines
>true ragnarok experience
>Not on damage control
why do you keeo posting photos of a nigger? you can trash talk all you want but the reality is that a pre-renewal server is THE SERVER atm
go cry yourself to sleep manchild
>Being so buttmad that you forget about capitalization and mistyping
>Being a flip
Most domcucks don't know about capitalization nor punctuation. Check the threads.
Makes sense, since anyone with a basic education wouldn't be playing in that crappy server.
If you're only going to upgrade it to the safe limit it doesn't matter.
Often times you may want to over-upgrade (upgrade past the safe limit) your weapon, so you'll get 1 card and several weapons and overupgrade them to the desired level, and several will break in the process, and after you successfully reach your desired upgrade level THEN you put your card in it.
i do, when 3.2 drops because current patch is SHIT
Stat enchant to chest removes any equipped card and upgrades, because it is actually giving you a new copy of the item. The slotting NPC works the same.
Weapon upgrades don't work that way, but you risk losing the card with the weapon if you upgrade it past the safe limit with a card in it.
>high rates - low drop
>people hit max level in no time
>they get bored of grinding cards or just idle at max level and quit
>low rate - high drop
>continuous parties and grind in different places
>you can get carded weapons and armor to grind more efficiently
>people keep playing
I think jRO/iRO had something good going on when they made the miniboss versions of mobs spawn every now and then on maps, as they had much much much better chances of dropping cards.
Economy is fucked by bots in most servers.
Also, while I don't want to sound like a fucking commie, high rates would mean easy gear and cards for everybody, so there wouldn't be any economy, outside of saving time farming consumables as >>127682004 said.
People still play RO? I played this shit religiously when I was younger, but dropped it rather quickly after discovering WoW.
As much nostalgia as I have for RO, I just can't get back into it again. The mechanics are far too clunky and the lack of non-PvP endgame content only makes me question why I'd level in the first place.
So I wanna start playing RO again after a few years (last time I played was when they implemented the update with Tidal shoes and Wool scarf). Any tips you fags want to share?
As it was explained to me earlier, it's good to have a hunter on a server, due to how well they do in farming. I assume there's nothing wrong with going monk though, check the classic wiki in the pastebin, first link, helped me out somewhat.
The faggot who made the thread didn't post the full version. Probably one of those little sad and frustrated "Le secret maymay club xDD" fags who try to push away all new players who come for nostalgia and comfyness to have fun.
you can start with monk if you know what you're doing and you have a plan setup. if you have to ask, I'm guessing you don't. you can still go for it, but you will have a somewhat hard time compared to most other jobs (hey, you're no merchant at least). you will have to solo punch a lot of shit as a combo monk and that's not particularly fast, though it is pretty fun the first time you do it.
Get Bless 10 and pneuma early, then ranged mobs are almost free kill exp.
Or got full int and heal 10 until like 65 lvl to healbomb undeads via shift+heal. DoM allows free stat and skill reset if you are below 70 lvl, but only once. When you are monk and lvl around 70 - use that reset and go agi/str/dex and bless/agi/pneuma. You don't need heal 10, since you have no int and your heal will be laughable.
if you want to autism powerlevel to 99 as fast as possible: wizard = priest (party the whole way through, will take like a day)
if you just want a good character to establish yourself on the server (farm money, gear, etc) before you switch to whatever you want to main: hunter > bard/dancer = rogue
but that's if you want to be as optimal as possible. is this your first time playing? if so, don't bother going full hardcore with it. have fun, play whatever the hell you want to play and try to find a casual guild to play with so you aren't stuck solo forever. combo monk will be fine for that if that's really what you want to play, the problem comes if you want to play asura/spirit monk immediately, that's nearly impossible gearless and on a first character.
you will most likely have to make some kind of farming character eventually but you can get a lot of mileage out of just playing combo monk. the good farming spots will need you to shell out some money for elemental weapons or make a sage on an alt account to endow yourself though.
Oh yeah. Forgot about the skill/stat reset till lvl 70. I'll try both leveling methods and see the one I enjoy the most.
Yeah, I read about that. Good thing I have a lot of free time, so slow leveling won't be a problem.
Been a long time since I last played this game, back when bRO was popular in Brazil. I'll keep in mind the info about the gear. Is Underwear/Panties still a good all-around combo for leveling?
And thanks again for the help, guys. Really appreciate it.
yup, undershirt+panties is your best bet for all agi based characters. you can't really kill pasanas on a new character and they might be slightly out of your price range right now though. not sure how much undershirts go for, I know panties are really cheap because everyone and their mother is hunting for zerom cards.
negative. they are completely optional, but you should get them anyway. we currently have an NPC that hands out quest skills for free. go to the left of prontera fountain, there's a kafra-looking NPC with the name "platinum skill npc"
>Looking forward to the final...solution
>leveling with a random party
>party is over
>im the only one who got a card
Feels good man, even if the card is shit.
But thats not me?
I only have 1 character on 1 account, i play legit.
>Please keep in mind, if the server goes poof
>It's not us rolling you back, it's the server not saving the last couple of minutes
>t. GM Asela
The trans grind is real. ;_; No one will party a 55/40 and I need 10 more jlevel..
Only good spot is Geographers til 50.
>The trans grind is real
>54/40 in literally 3 minutes
>66/50 in 5 more
>archie selling manuals like hotcakes
>and people still say this server isn't pay2win
>less unnecesarily fucking annoying for no reason is now called casualized
If the server lives more than one month, you can bet anything you want that people will stop buying them after the server becomes stable with bgs and shit. People is just desperate to get the aura before thr big things start.
That is, if the server ever becomes stable.
>making it way easier to level is not casual at all!
Exactly, it is not.
It doesn't make it harder to level, it just makes maps completely shit compared to others, you can just go to a better map rather than deal with it. Great game design, poring slapper.
leveling is part of the game, the fact you want to be fast tracked with easymode training wheel maps says everything
The annoying mobs have a reason to be in maps, it's to make partying balanced. Or else everyone can easily mob an entire map and get to 99 in two days. Might as well play a mid or high rate
Did you just not read my fucking post you mongoloid
The annoying maps can literally just be avoided in favor of better and safer spots. It doesn't balance shit, retard. Why does majos need the retarded arclouse map when its not even that great of a leveling map compared to other places with better exp and better drops.
>mfw poring slapper got triggered by pvp in front of me
>mfw poring slapper tries to justify grindfaggotry so he doesn't look like he's accomplished ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN OVER A DECADE OF PLAYING THE GAME
>can't even deal with arclouses in the easiest map to level ever
given how casuals you people are, the server probably has word filters and all that to avoid hurting your sensibilities
>playing on literally the literal reddit: the server

>pretends slapping poring is hardcore so that he doesn't have to feel inferior compared to the big boys
>if you're not a casual youre a keknebbal
But you are exactly like a keknibbler, except they admit they play the easy version of the game while you make excuses for dying to porings.
Nah but keknebbals are the only ones who cry on /rog/ all the time because they get bullied
"saiyan bombs", "muh cheats" etc. were all invented by butthurt keknebbals after they got BTFO over their shitstain of a game mode.
That's factually incorrect, it's the transcucks who shitpost endlessly and get triggered every time someone brings up facts.
This is even more funny when you realize that the actual amount of keknewal posters here probably doesn't exceed 3, Psor and novashill included. The rest is just clique shitposting and pretending to be keknewals to trigger you cucks. This can be easily seen by their complete lack of knowledge regarding keknewal.

FFA PvP Room: unbalanced and shit
1v1: unbalanced but fun, skilled when proffes/champions are involved
Small scale pvp/party vs party: unbalanced but a lot of room for innovation and fun
GvG: stale as fuck but really competitive
>Isn't the PvP horribly unbalanced, though?
Yes and git gud
I made this post >>127773363 clearly sarcastically (it's mostly just what Han Solo said to imperial forces when he and Luke were rescuing Leia) because clearly the server isn't perfect. But in all seriousness, since the the player cap fix the server has had like 2 instances of lag where some players were kicked off for about 30 seconds to a minute, but the server hasn't gone down. Between the few rare lag spikes, the server has been extremely stable, you guys are retarded to expect more from some piece of shit private RO server, it's not fucking google servers or something.
You're correct, there's basically no class balance, but like this guy said: >>127778547 You can get some interesting shit going on if you approach it in an orderly fashion.
You literally can't asura after snap, you fucking ignorant motherfucker.
Also Professor is OP.
>You literally can't asura after snap, you fucking ignorant motherfucker.
Why? Because I miss 14 sp from using snap? God, I'm sorry. That's hell of a lot of damage difference!
Or are you implying champs snap without critical state? Who's retard now here?
Finally started downloading the server.
>Manteinance guys :^)
Ok... I guess...
Somebody is recruiting members? I like supports but I always end playing alone (don't really like to multiclient).
you can join the clique or you can join OCA which is a normie guild with some /rog/ people in it, but they have a 'no memespouters' rule
or just join some random guild from forums

Guild leader here, play whatever you want since we're PvM. I think we're pretty set for MvPing though, I can't think of a particular class we're lacking.
Nah I try to filter out both ends of the spectrum.
I've been playing for 10 years. Just hate ACross and Creator because of the item farming. I like Full Support HP but if you just want to have fun, I can be something else (not the 2 listed above).
>but if you just want to have fun,
That's what OCA is all about homeboy, literally whatever you want. My highest level is a ninja for fuck's sake. Are you having trouble deciding?
Yep, and trouble downloading the game (it's still down).
Full Support Priest
Crit/Auto Blitz Sniper
Cart T/Refine Whitesmith
>Full Support Priest
Always useful, always fun
Absolutely useful and you'll be welcome in any guild leveling parties but you might have a hard time finding parties as a sage without us
Useful, fun, and it will give you instant parties, my favorite build in the entire game so I'll recommend this one

bad game design peeps, or the emulator sucks balls
what's wrong with my connection settings senpaitachi
I'm not even getting to packet-related errors. It's just straight fucking up at the connection part. I'm 100% sure I have the correct ip/port/version though so idk
I already probed their dev team. They have some type of packet filtering. There's probably a way around it somehow but you won't find the explanation on openkore, and since they were not particularly descriptive I can't bypass it myself. It's not Harmony based, or there's ways to get around it easily right on Openkore.
Yeah, but this is just the connection part. Like I said, it's not even getting past the initial connection, most likely due to a bad master_version or serverType.
Found this idiot (account id in the screenshot, lol) who posted this screenshot of him actually getting to the recvpackets issue so there is clearly something wrong with my settings and I'm not sure what. This is on the previous box from when they were still getting DDoSed but nothing should have changed on that end.
There are definitely bots running around farming creamies, tharas and also at byalan and they have all the telltale signs of openkore botting and not just a rudimentary colorbot so there is clearly something to be done here.
I used all the programs, wireshark, WPEpro, everything and followed the instructions down to a tee, and they all yielded the same shit.
So either they're using something that doesn't follow standard server types, or the programs don't work to find out the servertype/master anymore.
the problem is likely the master version, so all you have to do is manually go up by 1 and keep trying until you find the one that works.
I think highest master version goes is 40?
If you start at 40 I'll start at 1 and we can meet at 20.
hillwinds with the right bow from when you can oneshot them till trans with EXP manuals. You can easily farm them so fast you can buy a field manual with the zeny you just farmed.
I did 70-80 on peach trees. Wasn't the fastest thing ever, but I made something like 4m zeny from it and that's what I was going after. Parties work too, you're always in high demand.
I used the money to fund my other characters, but if you want to keep playing Dancer/Gypsy and think you're going to solo level a lot, you can invest that money into an Earthen Bow + Mandragora card to 1shot Hill Winds. It's pretty much the best solo exp you can get as a Dancer and you'll make your money back + more.
You can use the money towards an Orc Archer Bow instead too, it's a more universal bow and will still let you 1shot, but you will have to make a Sage to endow yourself.
If there weren't already a million dancers and everyone already partying in Magma. Any good party places you'd think of for 7x?
I can 3shot Hill Winds already with DS, but I appreciate the tips!
I would say it's not even worth going to Hill Winds until you can 1shot. Too slow and you'll get hit constantly.
Peach trees for steady awesome money + decent exp
Seals for an easy map to get to, not much money but better exp
Stings for a chance of more money ($$gloves$$) or no money + better exp + probably the worst map to get to in the game
Hill Winds is by far the best once you get to 1shot territory
I don't think there's anything else half-decent besides parties. Just keep an eye out on #party and be ready to stop whatever you're doing to immediately join a party if there's an open spot.
You don't really mob as a Dancer, you either offer SP or EXP song. If you insist on mobbing then you just make sure you never get hit. If you get hit once while mobbing you will usually get hit by the rest of the mobs, get hitlocked then die. Niff and anolians are easily mobbable as most classes but magma is nearly impossible for non-endure jobs as they constantly shit spells at you making you flinch
That would explain it nicely yeah.
I'll admit, I was never one to figure out the best numbers for builds, since every guide says a little of this, a lot of that, etc.
Or maybe I'm just being an overly competitive faggot.
Help.. this person is really annoying/memes. Is there any way I can just block someone off main chat?
DoM = new ggRO
The difference between this and Talon is Talon is more "newbie" friendly I found, and overall less... hardcore, in a way (not saying DoM is hardcore at all either). DoM is popular because of the WoE guilds that came here, and overall new server with somewhat decent/fair customization.
They're both popular atm and you can play whichever you'd like. Most people here are playing DoM right now.
dont play on talon unless you have hundreds to blow on p2w bullshit
it's not a lowrate in anything but exp rates, it's actually the most customized shitfest you can find.
not trying to shill for dom because its gay itself, just saying that talon is shit that you should never consider.

>literally restarting the same game from scratch on yet another throwaway server of the month, month after month
>doing the exact same thing over and over
This is literally autism in its purest form.
I personally went vit/agi/luk/dex to live through shit when I SB tank, but that's because when I wasn't in parties, I was leeching myself at anubis. If you aren't and you have to level by yourself, then get a real build. Slots for sb monks/champs in parties are super rare and they're only accepted as mobbers for niff/anolian parties, not magma2 (which are most of the parties made on the server)
it doesn't work with ranged attacks
I think they're moving away from their manual thing and that's why it's currently gone
yeah, two different things
1) slots for sb monks/champs are super rare
2) monks/champs as mobbers are only accepted as mobbers in niff/anolians
sb monks/champs are useful in almost every party, it's just that it's only 1 slot and it fills up very fast.
How long should I stay in Payon Dungeon Floor 1 as an archer? I'm level 46 atm and was told to go there/go to floor 3 but I'm kinda having trouble with having to chug pots to stay alive on floor 3
I'm not a reliable source, but from there I went to Greatest Generals, then right around 60 swapped to Geographers. Neither of the mentioned mobs require any healing, assuming you start far enough away from them.
>tfw missed out on the clique party because of wageslaver
J U S T
If you can kinda play while being mostly idle, bard/gypsy. If you mean you just don't have a lot of time to play, pick w/e you want. Priests are super easy to solo level this patch at Anubis, parties are decent for everyone.
pretty new to the game, just got done killing geographers on my hunter @ 71. I tried to go and do goats like the wiki advises, but I can't even hit the damn things. What am I probably missing?
You can use normal arrows, but since you are a hunter - you have almost free access to all elements. Search for arrow crafting skill quest for archer and then look up what produces crystal arrows. http://ratemyserver.net/
The platinum skills NPC is still just left of the fountain in prontera, free platinum skills.
Goats are a waste of time, but if you're going to do them anyway, definitely bring crystal arrows.
