About The Game
What is Ragnarok: Asgard Legend?
Ragnarok: Asgard Legend is a new iteration of the classic MMORPG, Ragnarok Online, that will feel familiar and new at the same time. We took the core of Ragnarok Online and designed the game again nearly from the ground up. We scrapped all NPCs, quests, items, monsters, etc. and kept only the core mechanics of the original Ragnarok Online. By doing this we were able to create a game that played very similar to the original, pre-renewal, Ragnarok Online, but with a fresh and exciting new game to discover.
Our goal is that this new experience is delivered in an official-like, professional manner. Asgard Legend's aim is to feel as though Gravity remade Ragnarok Online from the beginning with what is now known about pre-renewal mechanics, job classes, monsters, etc. and what areas of the game needed improvement and balance.
Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Below are a few questions that you may have about the game that may not be completely clear or covered elsewhere on the site. If you still have questions, feel free to ask us on our forums!
Q: What makes Ragnarok: Asgard Legend different than some other server with a lot of customs?
The team that designed Ragnarok: Asgard Legend has extensive knowledge of the original Ragnarok Online through years of playing and development of various private servers and features. What our game offers is an entirely new experience, not just a modified one. Only some of your existing knowledge of Ragnarok Online will apply in Ragnarok: Asgard Legend, but rest assured the game won't feel completely foreign.
Q: Are the game mechanics renewal, pre-renewal, pre-trans, or what?
Ragnarok: Asgard Legend is not a renewal, pre-renewal, or pre-trans server. However, we are running on mechanics very similar to that of Ragnarok Online prior to renewal. This is because we believe pre-renewal mechanics provide the most true RO experience. The mechanics are different enough that players will be able to have fun learning the game again, but similar enough that it retains the original and unique RO feeling.
Q: What are the rates?
Rates in Asgard Legend are not easy to quantify due to all the manual adjustments needed to be made to monster's stats, EXP, item drops, and the EXP tables as a whole for balancing purposes.
Q: Are all of the same classes available?
EXP Rates: The intent is that it plays similar to a low-rate, pre-renewal RO server, somewhere between 3~5x rates depending on where you're hunting.
Drop Rates: Common items will drop more akin to a 1~2x server, while cards and equipment are a bit easier to obtain than usual due to the weapon modification system. Equipment can vary quite a bit depending on the value of the item with rare drops being as low as 0.10%, but most equipment drops at an average of 0.50%. Cards are a steady 0.10% drop rate.
Ragnarok: Asgard Legend features the original 1-1, 2-1, and 2-2 job classes. You'll notice quite a few differences between the classes in Ragnarok Online and in Ragnarok: Asgard Legend. Skills may have different names, function differently, and/or have several completely new skills. We've made sure that all classes still retain their proper feel, such as the thief job class feeling stealthy, but have introduced many new elements and balance fixes to the classes.
Q: What Episode are you on? What areas are available?
Ragnarok: Asgard Legend follows a separate timeline than the original Ragnarok Online, and thus, will not represent any episode in particular from the original Ragnarok Online. For a general overview of which maps are available, please visit the World Map
page. Future Episode patches will bring in new areas.
