RO2 Final Test Trial Report

Ragnarok Online 2 (RO2) from Korea-based Gravity conducted its final test between Dec. 26 and Dec. 30, and is going to kick off the official OBT later. The game's success will rely on players' satisfaction. Before the final result is confirmed, Ragnarok Online fans can just appreciate the gameplay videos and screenshots regarding RagnarokOnline 2's final test.

Gameplay Videos:

This video mainly depicts how a swordsman does daily quests, at the end of which we can see an NPC teleport the character to the target city by air. During the flight, a bird's eye view of charming sceneries can be gained and the NPC would do various funny actions.

This video showcases the skills performed by the classes excluding the swordsman.

5 classes were made playable in the final test, and we can see from the unveiled screenshots that each class was capable of casting glorious skills. Players who joined the test said that Ragnarok Online 2 differed from its prequel very much no matter in the light of the graphics or the game mode. Ragnarok Online 2 is a brand-new game, and its greatest feature is that once selecting an NPC, players will see a close-up of the NPC's head. The combination of stirring actions and beautiful sceneries just leads to the game's unique charm.

Ragnarok Online 2 has been developed for 4 years by use of Unreal Engine 2.5 and inherits the advantages and features of its prequel Ragnarok Online, and is attached with unique personalities and new fun. According to understanding, the final test was targeted at all users with substantial content updated.

Dragon Nest Mercenary Heraldry Plates Guide

In Dragon Nest, apart from the class skills, a player also has to consider the kind of Heraldry plates that he will use. Heraldries are special plates with endowed stats that help boost your character’s performance in PvE and/or PvP. They have a range of enhancements from class skill boost, status boosts, and special skills.

the heraldry set is pretty organized and is broken up by type and level. Level in this case does not refer to the level of the heraldry plate but instead your level.

A Dragon Nest Character has Heraldry slots. Each slot, at the beginning of the game is locked, and while leveling up, each slot will slowly unlock.
Refer to the picture for the exact level needed to unlock that particular heraldry slot.

As each slot unlocks, you are allowed to put heraldry in that slot.

Heraldry can be found in dungeon instances, Dark Lair, or other users. Each Heraldry Plate is locked and untradeable until unlocked and gives the choice between two effects when unlocking it except Special Heraldry. Special Heraldry only gives one effect.
Since I am not fond of PVP, it is only natural that I get plates that would be helpful in PVE, namely in dungeons and nests (Manticore is still the bane of my Dragon Nest life).

Firstly, let’s talk about Stats-based Heraldry. The most important few plates would be
  1. Fatal - Increases your Critical Chance by a certain amount. I believe all attack classes will use this plate as one of their 8 choices. Critical ignores defense, so that is what makes Critical so important.
  2. Destruction – Thisamplifies your Physical Attack stat by a huge margin.
  3. HP – Increases your HP by a certain amount.
  4. Health – Increases your VIT by a certain amount.
  5. Bear – Increases your Strength Stat by a certain amount.
Subsequently, these are the possible plates that I would pick.
  1. Energy – Increases MP regeneration. There are times when I often run out of MP after spamming my skills through dungeons. This plate helps me to continue attacking without worrying.
  2. Ultimate – Increases your Final Damage Stat by a certain amount. This is to help increase your DPS. To determine whether you think the bonus is helpful or not.
  3. Magic Defense – At higher levels in PvE, most of the damage that you will get hit with is magic. You will be able to dodge physical damage skills relatively easy. So this crest can be helpful for you given the fact that Mercenaries have many defensive skills as well.
When you are really rich, try to get yourself a 3-stat Heraldry Plate. If you have ever gotten one in CBT, you would have seen a Stat Heraldry giving you a random additional stat in it. When a good additional stat is imbued within a good Heraldry Plate, it would usually cost a bomb. Either use it, or sell it for gold! Use those with critical stat in it.

If you are not familiar with Mercenaries skills yet, I suggest you read this Mercenary Skill Guide first. As for Skill Plates, they are
  1. Taunting Howl – Pick the debuff time extension choice. This is more for Support-based Mercenaries.
  2. Battle Howl - Pick the buff time extension choice. This is more for Support-based Mercenaries.
  3. Panic Howl – Pick the buff time extension choice. This is more for Support-based Mercenaries.
  4. Iron Skin – Pick the buff time extension choice. This is for those who want better defensive abilities.
  5. Whirlwind/Rolling Attack – Pick the damage increase choice. These two skills have very high damage. Use both of them to increase your DPS. But do remember that both skills have long cooldown. Perhaps a damage crest on another skill can be more helpful in more DPS?
  6. Side Kick – Pick the action speed increase choice. This is more on Mercenaries who prioritise PvP.
  7. Flying Swing – Pick the cooldown reduction choice. For Destroyers who wants higher damage.
  8. Bone Crash – Pick the debuff time extension choice. The debuff benefits your party to increase the overall DPS greatly. Having this plate is very useful also.

Anything that benefits your team is a must, in my opinion. But generally buffing your whole team/protecting your whole team is way more important than something like Flying Swing Damage. You want to make sure your casters will take minimum damage and your party deals optimal damage.

Heraldries, to be clear, cannot stack. There are key names that heraldries have that may be different grades or levels. Even if you find them at different grades or levels, you cannot use the same type at all. That's why when making a heraldry set, be sure to have the highest grade and level of whatever type of heraldry you want and pick out of the many types which ones you prefer.

Game of Thrones RPG Trailer, Details Finally Out

We’ve heard lots of rumors, but very little concrete information about the Game of Thrones RPG until today. Cyanide studios released some choice tidbits of information along with a new trailer showing the game in action.

Game of Thrones, the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG due out early 2012, is being built by Cyanide Studio using Epic's Unreal Engine 3, publisher Focus Home Interactive has revealed.

It's based on the series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin - the inspiration behind the HBO TV series. The game's story is written "under the supervision" of R.R. Martin.

You play as Mors, sworn brother of the Night's Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption. The pair adventure in familiar parts of Westeros, such as the Wall and King's Landing. You get to meet Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Expect 30 hours of gameplay.

At the beginning of the game you choose the class of your characters and determine their fighting style. As with all good RPGs there's equipment to loot, weapons to find and experience to gain. You can slow down time during combat.

It was hardly the trailer we were hoping for, but it’ll do for now. It’s over two minutes long, but includes next to no gameplay footage. And the footage that does come from in-game play is just a character running in a perfectly straight line in a few different settings. For a game that’s due out in “early 2012” that’s a bit concerning.

Ragnarok Online 2 (KR) to Kick off Final Test on Dec. 26

As announced, Ragnarok Online 2, a highly-anticipated project developed by South Korea-based Gravity, is going to carry out its final test from Dec. 26 to Dec. 30.

The final test is to be focused on testing the various systems to be made available when Ragnarok Online 2 is commercially released as well as the server stability. A wide array of great prizes will be offered for testers when the time comes, like "5 million won" which is enough for one term's college expenses, coupons worth 100,000 won, and some commemorative virtual items.

At this year's G-Star, Gravity disclosed that Ragnarok Online 2 was expected to start commercial service in South Korea in Q1, 2012 with the goal of entering certain overseas markets in 2014. According to Gravity, the game has been licensed to 10 countries, and the localization work can start at any time.

The current Ragnarok Online 2 is a remake of Ragnarok Online 2: The Gate of the World which experienced a heavy blow in CBT May, 2007. The in-game systems, character appearances and so on have been revamped comprehensively. Ragnarok Online 2's second CBT took place in August, 2010. And now the remade Ragnarok Online 2 is finally going to be officially released. But how the players react to the game will decide whether the remake is successful or not. Will it write a new chapter on the market or be discarded by players? Let's just wait and see.

Ragnarok Online: The Highly Anticipated 14.1 Bifrost Expansion Live!

It is perfect time to join Ragnarok Adventure as well as the perfect time to return for the Holidays as Ragnarok Online launches the highly anticipated massive expansion episode update 14.1 Bifrost. This expansion opens a new chapter in the New World Saga, bringing adventurers face to face with Nidhoggur and the plight of her people. Unique daily and arc quests as well as new monsters await our higher level adventurers in the Bifrost.

The 14.1 Bifrost expansion includes:

Expansion to the New World story.
2 New Instances.
New Equipment sets for High Level Warlock and Arch Bishops.
New fearsome mobs to challenge high level Players.

Detail information about the expansion can be found here.


1000 years of peace have reined, the world has forgotten the horrors of the age of myth. Such peace can never last forever and evil waits patiently. The first signs of the evil awakenings were the friendly monsters turning aggressive; followed soon after by demons attacking and the dead rising from their graves. Heroes appeared to beat back the invasions until the fateful day that Satan Morocc destroyed the peaceful town of Morroc, his freedom granted by the insane and corrupt humans of Midgard. The heroes re-gathered themselves and pushed back with everything they had but only a stalemate was possible. The delicate seals that protect the world from spilling into complete chaos weaken and break; only the knowledge and power from the age of myth can save Midgard from certain doom. Are you one of the heroes of legend? Can you and your allies push back the threat of total annihilation and protect Midgard from the final Ragnarok?

To aid new adventurers in Ragnarok, Gravity is hosting a level up event to help players reaching to base level 70 and 1st Job 50 much faster than normal! This event is to help players to get up to speed and explore 14.1 contents and join their friends at the higher levels of play.

Whether you are a brand new Ragnarok player looking to join or a returning hero ready to come back, the newest 14.1 Bifrost expansion with variety of events and bonuses offer a great deal of action and fun!

Mythos Global Review: Redeemed?

From T3 Entertainment, Mythos brings the highly successful “Hack’n’Slash” formula to an action packed online role-playing game. The comparison to Diablo, Torchlight and Titan Quest should be very familiar to anyone. Combat, skills, stats, leveling systems, inventory and many more features of Mythos will be very familiar to people who’ve played these kinds of games before.

Like any other MMO worth its salt, the game’s lore is set against the backdrop of an ancient war – yada yada – and players are tasked with picking their path by choosing from one of the games races and skill-sets.

Mythos’ races are made up of four character types – Humans, Cyclops, Gremlins and Satyr – each with their own bonus skills depending on your play style.

These are further broken down into three classes – Pyromancer (Mage-style class with spells), Bloodletter (warrior-style melee fighter) and Gadgeteer (riflemen (and women) capable of tinkering-up toys of destruction).

Hardly an overwhelming selection, but assuming it’s done right, more than enough to create the variety and balance needed for the PVE and PVP gameplay on offer.

Without wanting to use the terms ‘hatchet job’ or ‘cut and shut’, there’s no avoiding the fact that, while Mythos has some pretty cool ARPG core, the MMO elements like the crafting system and micro transaction-powered item shop system do seem to have been ratcheted on like the rear end of a 1998 Ford Mondeo.

The two sides of the game simply don’t gel and instead of creating an experience greater than the sum of its parts, the game is a collection of component parts thrown at the screen like a very confusing digital jigsaw.

The game world is split up into quite small towns and villages which are connected by portals or skyship transport that load you into the new area. Most of these places have a dungeon portal that will take you to the various dungeon instances, which quests will direct you too. Quests are obtained using the “Talk to an NPC with a floating exclamation mark above their head” mechanic favoured by most MMOs. The quality of quests during the low levels were pretty good and they felt less of a grind. Sure most were kill and fetch with some nice low level bosses. but I didn’t get any ridiculous demands like “collect 20 wolfpelts” or send you to the same boar inhabited forest every time like in other Online MMORPG Games. Instead the dungeons you were sent to varied a lot, something I appreciated since it would have been easy for a Dev team on a free to play MMO to use the same template over and over for filler quests. Also to prevent having to travel back and forth from dungeons each time, around 3 NPCs would be offering slightly related quests but with different objectives around the same time for a particular dungeon. As good as the quest system is though, I found through research that end game content is basically more of the same but bosses with high HP count. I’m not convinced this will be enough for some.

Combat itself was tons of fun, I was running through the dungeons shooting and looting like a madman. That to me is the hallmark of a good Action RPG, fast and addictive combat and piles of loot. As you would expect then from a game of this style, combat is done with left mouse click for normal attack and right mouse click for your special attack and that is it. You can get different special attacks from certain weapons or investing skill points to unlock new skills during level-up. This will be different to some who are use to an action bar with 10+ different attacks you can use when you like. Not everyone likes having such a simple system but fans of games such as Diablo 2 will have no problems with it.

To add a little more depth to the combat and skills system, weapons can be upgraded with rune slots, which as you may guess allows you to add runes that modifies character and weapon stats. Mythos also uses an achievements system with a purpose. Each achievement has a bonus like 3% to health, though only one achievement can be active at a time. The achievements help add another option to tailoring your character build, but I must admit even with these features Mythos lacks the kind of depth in building a character up that you would get in other MMORPG Games.

The other main game play feature is an extensive crafting system, that allows the player to create better and sometimes unique equipment. The basis of crafting is materials and recipes, both of which are dropped by monsters with materials also being gained from breaking down looted equipment. Crafting is a chance based affair, where there is a risk the item will break and fail during creation. Once you have an item you can improve it further in different ways, by merging them with items to improve its power, adding rune slots or by enchanting. Again there is a risk the item will break during refinement but luckily you can get it repaired again for a price. It’s a nice addition that adds to looting aspect of the game, giving you something more involved then just dumping cheap loot on the nearest merchant.

Crafting items brings me to the Free to Play model of Mythos. There is an item shop that has the usual annoyance of requiring you to buy in-game currency first instead of directly paying through the shop. In this case the currency is known as Bones, with Bones you can buy the usual Free to Play premium items like extra inventory space, XP gain boosters and of course equipment that is unobtainable through normal game play.


- Simple yet addictive combat
- Good quest variety
- Interesting class system


- Need to enjoy Action RPGs
- Lack of quality end game content
- Shallow Character building options


OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7
Processor: Pentium 4 1.8GHZ
Ram: 1GB
Graphics card: video ram 128mb, Geforce Ti 4200/Ati Radeon 8500
Direct X Version 9.0c

Schedule of Open Beta Test (OBT) is January 12, 2012.
