  1. While it does lend itself towards anime lovers, it is wonderfully done and I believe that everyone will find SOMETHING they enjoy about this game. You'll receive days, if not weeks, of pleasure from Ragnarok Online.
  2. The textures and color vibrancy will blow you away.

    A great game for those looking to try out the Korean style of MMORPG, but it really fails to rise to the standards needed to compete with the current heavy hitters in the industry. On the plus side, Gravity is gracious enough to give all of their potential players a free 15 day trial to see if Ragnarok just might be that MMORPG that they have been yearning for.
  4. In this light-hearted whimsical title from one of the largest online gaming companies in South Korea, Ragnarok Online combines simplified RPG controls, bloodless combat, anime art and addictive social communities to create a truly unique online experience.
  5. Strictly for the anime, console-style RPG crowd, but if you’re in that group you may find yourself having a good time.

But isn't all: War of Empire, a guild battles in certain days to get the domain of the castles to access some privilegies is amazing and much more that a reason to continue paying and playing! Expand

    Ragnarok Online,
    Oh nostalgia.
    The game that forever change my perpective on MMORPG.
    Never i have played a game that consumed my life like A LOT.

    The pvp is great.
    The castle war is PERFECT.
    The card system is cool! Making every slot weapon a prefered weapon.
    Lots of skills are not just bout damaging your opponents.
    Lots of skill are about TRICKING your opponents.
    Sometimes there are skills that are strange yet interesting.
    This is a very great game.
    There is a reason why there are hundreds of private server doing this game right now with much higher drop rate and merciful experience.

    The only problem is bot.
    But i dont see bot as a problem at all.
    Bots make this game extremely interesting.
    I have seen a bot that does services to me...
    A bot that even sell things.
    And a bot that even guard the entrance of a volcano dungeon so that people can sit there and relax.
    Sure bot diminish the grinding.
    But it sure make this game on a really interesting twist.

    As you begin playing the game as a novice you think to yourself."One day I will become one of the best there is." It was fun during the 2nd As you begin playing the game as a novice you think to yourself."One day I will become one of the best there is." It was fun during the 2nd class stage well at least for me since the Monk class is a very complexed class. Right after I hit transcendant Champion I worked hard to get to 99. Then you just realize what is there to do next? There isn't really a point in the game after you have a transcendant class character. Expand

And, before I that I played lot of MOBA and FPSI am playing the pRO(Philippine Ragnarok Online) or Ragnarok Online for almost 2 years now. And, before I that I played lot of MOBA and FPS games. One thing that got me interested in Ragnarok Online is its War Of Emperium. It is Guild War as most MMORPG player knew. I spent hard cash just to get my character ready for WoE. But after I tried playing my Ranger for WoE, I got disappointed because I cant PK or do anything useful in WoE. Most offensive skill can one shot me even I am in full gear. And, this really disappoint me and its about a year since my character got updated with new gear. Seriously Gravity Corporation or however you people in charge on updating this game, this is not how you make multiplayer PvP game. A character that has both offensive and defensive skill can not have one shot kill skill. Long range character that don't have defensive skills should have damage boost to one shot people from a distance. Support type character should have mana and speed boost. You should indicate what weapon(s) and gear(s) that can be effective in WoE and what update they were released. Do not Hieroglyphics these stuffs because WoE and PvP is not the same as questing RPG. Gears should be easy to find and the game should make since even for newbies. Expand
