Getting Started

From SolaceRO

Plunging headfirst into Ragnarok Online is fun, but newer players will benefit from having some knowledge of what will occur during the game. Remember, though, that Ragnarok, like all MMORPGs, is dynamic and things constantly change.

Getting Started

  1. Download and Install SolaceRO at SolaceRO Download.
  2. Register master account at SolaceRO Panel and verify email address.
  3. Create game account/s.
  4. Patch game (make sure to run as admin) and enter Rune-Midgard.

Note: Join the SolaceRO PH Official Group so that you’ll be able to interact more with the community and like The Solace Server page to see updates. These act as a forum for the players instead of a separate one.

Account Set Up

At the character selection page, we recommend creating 3 characters - your main character, a character for hunting, and an OCDC merch.

Main Character

This is your priority character - the one you will be using for boss hunts, Woe etc. We suggest making one first then you may want to build specific characters for PVP or PVM afterwards.

Farming/Hunting Character

This character is a sufficiently equipped character that is focused on solo hunting for items and equipment. We suggest creating a hunter, rogue, or any other classes that can solo mobs and survive.

Vending/Buying Character

This merch serves to sell your items to the NPC with the Merchant 'Overcharge' skill, allowing for a more profitable selling. Using the Merchant 'Discount' skill, you may purchase fly wings, butterfly wings, and other NPC bought equipment for a cheaper price.

Others

Other characters you can also create are cosplay characters (for fun characters intended to imitate anime characters - create a wiz named 'Megumin' who uses 'Explosion!!' once a day maybe?), PVP characters, and other types of characters.

Upon creating your character, type @joinchannel, enable the listed channels and then recon once so that you can join and view the channels of the server.

Server Features to Take Advantage

There are multiple features that new players may use to rapidly catch up to other players in terms of level.

Novice Free Items

As a novice, you will be given a set of novice equipment, 200 Novice Red Potions, 20 Novice Flywings, 5 Novice Butterfly Wings, 5 Novice Magnifiers, and 10 Novice Manuals. The Manuals can be used until level 40 and all other items can be used regardless of level.

Morroc Castle Scroll

Upon reaching level 10, you will acquire this item. You can use it to teleport to the Morroc Castle entrance, guild, or cash area. It may also be used as a free warp to Morroc. This item has a 300-second cooldown and can be used until Level 50.

Morroc Castle

You might wonder how to go back to Morroc Castle once your Morroc Castle Scroll is no longer available. Well, you just need to look for a Kafra Employee and warp to Morroc. Then go to the center of the map and you’ll see the entrance there.

Novice Warper

Novice Warper NPCs are available in almost every beginner town. Click on them to teleport to a town or dungeon for free. This Warper is available until you reach level 41 and has a 5 minutes cooldown.

Playtime Voucher

You will start earning the hourly playtime voucher once you reach lv 30. You can exchange this for usable items thru NPC Rewards Artisan.

Playtime Voucher

NPC Rewards Artisan

This is the NPC wherein you can exchange different rewards to certain items. You can this at right-wing of Morroc Castle and inside the Refinery building of Prontera.

Basic Items to Acquire

We recommend stocking up on potions, fly wings, butterfly wings, gemstones, and ammo before you start your hunt. Most of these can be bought from NPC Tool Dealer using your OCDC Merch.

  • Tip: For jobs not in the acolyte class, make sure that you always have a butterfly wing with you so that you’ll be able to go back to the town where you have saved. You wouldn’t want to get stuck or walk back home after leveling or hunting.

Substitute for Ragnarok Commodities

Potions

Potions are a need to level efficiently. You can get these from players who sell ESBs or through exchanging your playtime vouchers.

If neither of these fits you, you may use recovery items dropped by mobs you are hunting such as potatoes, yams, strawberries, and similar items to reduce potion consumption.

You may also use Fresh Fish for HP recovery and Grape Juice for SP recovery. They are both lightweight, budget-friendly, and regen a suitable amount of HP/SP. Fresh fish can be bought from Comodo (225,154) and Amatsu (206,150) at 250(regular)/190 (DC). Grape Juice can be bought from Amatsu (202,165) at 300(regular)/228(DC)

You may also opt to use the ESB White potions/Blue potions through the Playtime Voucher rewards or the Advance Siege Box (50 whites/20 blues) through the same NPC.

Fly Wing

You may opt to hunt for a Creamy Card and slot it on a Clip [1] or a Nile Rose [1] in order to save on the fly wings. Creamy has a big spawn rate at prtfld_04 (Prontera, 2 left) and geffld_13 (Geffen, left, down)

Nile Rose with Creamy Card

Butterfly Wing

Unfortunately, there are no other items to substitute a butterfly wing. However, you may get this from any of the following monsters: Wraith / Bloody Butterfly / Creamy / Dragon Tail

Gemstones

You can buy blue gemstones at the Geffen tool dealer. Some mobs drop blue gemstones as well (Megalodon at 1.2%, Marine Sphere at 1.5%, etc).

If you need red or yellow gemstones, you may want to buy blue gemstones and use the gemstone converter near the Payon Castle. The converter exchanges 2 blues for 1 red, 2 reds for 1 yellow, and 2 yellows for 1 blue.

  • If you wish to hunt them, red gemstones drop from Gig at 1.5%, Thief Bug Female at 0.5%, and Pest at 2.5%. Yellow gemstones drop from Picky at 0.6%, Mineral at 1%, Condor at 0.8%, etc.
