Ok i think many of you have waited for this?? I will start off with the introductions but first
Need to know more about Ragnarok? go read the while wiki on it athttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragnarok_OnlineNo one is interested in playing Ragnarok Anymore, so might as well ask others what server they play on.
Our Preferred server is HatsukoiRO!! Join us at HatsukoiRO by simply following this link.http://hatsukoi-ro.net/
Register at http://hatsukoi-ro.net/account/create/
Use the same loginID and Password to login to your game.
The Rates of this Server are 65x/65x/20x
Registering at the forums of hatsukoiRO is different and has to be done separately. If you do register at the forums then introduce yourself at the forums.
IRC Channel = http://leonlanford.web.id/irc.php#
This is where people will be available if you want to have a live chat (text) with others for help etcNote: Your loginID can be anything but please try to keep your ingame character name somewhat similar to that used in the AnimeStash Forums so that we can Recognize you.Example: LeonLanford can keep his ingame name as Leon/Lolon/LeonLanford or whatever similar to his username here
MoonlightLacement can keep her ingame name as Moon/MoonLace/Moonlight/Moonlight Flower or whatever similar to her username here. If for some reason you cant keep the Character name similar to that on AnimeStash then please inform on the forums your Character NameDownload Links and Server LinksMethod 1Sakray & Ragnarokhttp://ratemyserver.net/index.php?page=download_kROLinks
NOTE- You have to kRO Sakray 03-25-2009 & kRO Ragnarok 03-25-2009 which are available as a torrent or DDL or even divided in parts. Also take care that the "shortcut" method which they mentioned on the webpage is obviously good but it takes away all the BGM of the game, without which the game is boring, Believe me!!
Or instead of the whole kRO ragnarok (1.2gb file) get this instead.

You can download the Patcher after you have both sakray and ragnarok from the websitehttp://hatsukoi-ro.net/main/downloads/Introduction
Ragnarok, an online MMORPG created by Gravity Co. but unfortunately...its a pay to play game....
So what the ebil smart people have done is; they have emulated ragnarok and created private servers and these emulations are obviously free and now open source.To find more info about ragnarok characters and other such data please go the following site but DO NOT register or download on/from that site because we are not going to play therehttp://iro.ragnarokonline.com/game/game.asp
So what we will be doing is that we will be using these emulations to fuel our gaming hunger
The mostly used emulation now~a~days is the kRO
Now i know that people would be saying "why not play at the official ragnarok server which created a free server for us to play".....the answer is NO!! just NO!! that server would be full of well unfair things
The main site for more info about ragnarok is obviously the famous RMS aka RateMyServer
but i have found a better one (more updated one)http://irowiki.org/wiki/http://ratemyserver.net/
and another one being DoddlerROhttp://ro.doddlercon.com/
Also be sure to check out the new remixes of the ragnarok BGM available on the RMS site. Get the song which you like the most and then replace the song in the ragnarok BGM folder but be sure to keep a backup of the old songhttp://ratemyserver.net/index.php?page=ro_mp3_selectExtra Character Information
Ok so lets see, First of all you need help in deciding a character right? Well there are Lots to choose from.
Ranging from archer class, healer class, swordsman class, thief class, merchant class and many others.
Now There is a little twist here.....you dont remain a same class for ever...you evolve (survival of the Fittest!!)
The evolution or aka Job Change is necessary if you want to stay alive.
For more information about different available classes you can go to RMS, here is the link, its a character simulator where you can see how your character would look. Also provided is a skill simulator for your character.
Character Simulator http://ratemyserver.net/ro-character-simulator/index.php
Skill Simulator http://ratemyserver.net/skill_sim.php
Skill List & Character List http://ratemyserver.net/index.php?page=skill_db_class
Character Creation Guide http://write.ratemyserver.net/
Search for the guide you want from the tab to the right side of the webpage.
The RMS has also provided for a test server where you have GM rights and can test out your character. (please note that they wipe their servers regularly) The links and details have been given on the RMS website
Test Server http://play.ratemyserver.net/ragnarok/index.php
Now there are "Quests" in this game which you can perform to earn some awsome cool goodies which otherwise are rare to achieve. My favorite is obviously the head gears quest [yes that means if you give me a kawai~~ headgear then you Might get a kiss from me (ingame) ]
BTW my favorite hats are Sunday hat & Mystic rose Or Decorative Golden Bell & Bao Bao
Quest Guide http://ratemyserver.net/quest_db.php
Also be sure to Change the site settings according to the server we are going to join, so as to know the drop percent of each item (the rates are to be changes as Base level= 65; Job Level= 65; Drop=20)
The option is (default) available on the bottom left corner of the webpage under the "Options" tab.
Also there is something called the WoE, aka War Of The Emperium, which is actually a guild war and happens in a specified interval of time so that every guild can participate.
to create a Guild, We will need an Emperium and a character which will be the main character (that means you will use it ALWAYS...and not just for fun) Now this character, when he/she has the Emperium, an item which is costly, can create a guild and become a guild leader.
Guild leaders are those who will be VERY active otherwise it totally destroys the guild. Its like a webpage without admins......
Anyways The guild leader voting will happen later when we actually choose a server and untill we get a emperium. (some people are very helpful and they might give us an emperium for free with certain conditions like become our ally.....or discounted rates or something like that)
After a guild leader has been decided we now need to decide the logo and the guild name (some servers dont allow other website names as it is counted as advertising without their rights)
This all will be done at a later stage but i just wanted to inform you guys about all the information you needed.
Ok now comes the fun part, The marriage!!! Yes you can get married in the game and also adopt a child.
There are good and bad parts about marriage. Firstly; marriage costs!! yes it costs a LOT! 1.2mil~1.5mil zeny (low rate servers)
The best part is that your wedding will be announced on the whole server and you get wedding rings. With these rings equipped you get 2 additional skills, which are pretty good incase of emergency. You can transfer your HP/SP to your partner. These rings cannot be traded or thrown and will always remain in your inventory.
Adoption, this is very much a huge problem. What happens is that the adopted character looses some of his skill/stat bonuses and cannot go to rebirth class....(lots of limitations are avaialble on RMS) The better part being that the character looks like a loli!! (Yes ASN and Teh Loli King would love this!!)
Then comes the Divorce!! Why do you need to divorce? many reasons and some of them being
A) You Suck!! stupid husband/wife...ALL YOU DO IS PLAY AND LEVEL AND NO PRIVATE TIME FOR US!!!!
B) I dont like you anymore....i like that cute dancer who dances on my laps!!!
C) Player is inactive (run away wife/husband!!) and thus you need to be free.
These are the most common reasons which i have seen. (i have even seen 2 people fighting in the middle of town shouting out all their personal relations and calling each other words which are not allowed on this forums....god it was funny!!)
If you need more information then please go to RMS, as people have dont a great job in creating such an awsome site for information about ragnarok.FAQ- Frequently Asked Questions
Q1) Can I use the same account on different servers?
A1) No you cant. The reason being that all the servers are different, hosted by different people, maintained by different people...so they have no relation among themselves as of such. So if you decide to play on server A, you cant use the same account on server B.
Q2)How do i play this game?
A2) Its very simple actually, Firstly you have to get the sakray(kRO) from the site i mentioned in this post and then after you have that installed, please patch it. After patching is done then you must get the Server installer which is available for download at the respective server websites (not the full installer, but just the one which says "Installer for people who already have sakray". This installer varies from 20~40mb in size. This must also be updated to recieve the SERVER updates from the particular server which you wish to play.
Q3)How is this game played? What makes it different from other games?
A3) well i thought this was simple but still, This game is played after you have installed both the sakray and the server installer. After the updating of the files, you must create an account on the server. This can be done by visiting the website for the server and then creating an account. After an account has been created, you go to your character selection page and there you can choose a name for your character (take not that wierd characters in the name are not allowed, only english language, and no mixing L and I otherwise the GM's might ban you) So you start off with a novice character. Now you need to select the novice hair style, hair color and other such eye candy.....name the character...and then set its initial stats which vary for each class you are going to take. Please use the test server if you want to test some things out.
PS I havent used the test server so please dont ask me questions about that....but if you do feel the urge to ask then i will try my level best to answer them. (but i wont install the test server installer file)
There are other sites where one can find information about servers which are popular but be sure to read the rules.http://www.gamesites200.com/ragnarok/http://www.rotop100.com/http://www.xtremetop100.com/ragnarok-online
We would also be working as a team and will be creating a guild on the server which would contain the members of the animestash forums though other players are also welcome but preference would be given to the forum registered users who are active.
These rules are subject to change without any formal notice as it depends on the taste of the majority of the players
Here is the list of links where one can get all the required files and installers for playing the game.
Please note that the installer is for Windows XP and above platforms only.
SIDE NOTES- I welcome any help from the forum members as i am new to topic making and maintaining.
Please add in more information about the servers which you recommend like the website, population, rates and information which might be helpful in deciding whether it gets passed or rejected as soon as possible.
