    Server & Time

    New Server Hardware GatheringRO has been successfully merged to brand new server hardware. With that, the game server is now running on the latest generation of hardware available, which gives us a great performance boost in all directions. We made sure to get rid of bottlenecks that we've noticed on our recent server, but also improved performance overall. Since our patcher system is now running through our website instead of the old game server, this swap was seamless, without the need to re-install the game client. SQL Database Performance A server migration is always a great opportunity to get core software back up to speed with their latest version releases. But running and maintaining an SQL Database with a vast amount of data bandwith usage can be challenging. We've invested most of the migration time to improve on core SQL settings, which is the very heart of our game. Basically everything you do runs through and saves within our SQL database in one way or another. We will continue to monitor our tweaks to improve our database performance even further, as soon as we've gathered enough live data to do so. Server Security We've always given great care to the security of our game server, but there's always room to improve upon security. That's why we've increased our security standards for our game server, to keep your account and characters safe and sound. Please don't forget that it's still necessary for you to keep your username and password private and safe. Do not share them with anyone! We will never ask you for your password. We highly recommend using password managers like LastPass, to create strong passwords without the struggle to remember them. Server Time Our heroes failed to stop Time Holder, as he managed to change our server time! But we think he did a great deed! Not only our base time changed, but we also got rid of daylight saving time. Everything around Gathering Ragnarok Online is now running on the UTC standard format, instead of GMT+1 (+Daylight Saving Time). What does that mean? Coordinated Universal Time (or UTC) is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. It represents both, UTC (+ 0) and GMT (+ 0). No daylight saving time means, that we will no longer adjust our server time during winter and summer time. It will never change ever again! Conclusion: It will be easier for players worldwide to calculate the time difference between the server and your county. If you live in an area of UTC + 4 (or GMT +4), you're simply running 4 hours ahead of our server time. More and more countries are getting rid of the daylight saving time recently, while others never used it in the first place. We're glad to support the cause by creating more simple time management in our daily life. In-Game Events: Our event triggers (WoE, BG Happy Hours, World Bosses) haven't changed yet! That means everything starts 2 hours prior than before the server migration took place. We might adjust all events by 1 or 2 hours in a future update, to compensate for the time change. Both our Website, and the World Boss timers have been adjusted accordingly to represent the new time base. WoE Rewards We've witnessed several players trying to abuse the WoE reward system by feeding kills to friends. As a result, a handful of player accounts have been temporarily banned and punished additionaly. At the same time, we've adjusted the WoE reward system, which now punishes feeding accordingly by design. We also took the time to rebalance some of the base rewards, especially for player kills to fight further against abuse. Please note that these abuse cases had nothing to do with the recent server downtime. Important Statement Details about the server downtime will not be shared, due to several reasons. However: We've implemented several counter measurements and increased our logging capabilities to silently track down people we haven't catched just yet, or who're already on our radar. ~<3 We have an absolute 0 tolerance policy to cheating and bug abusing. We don't care about your invested time as long as you don't care about us. Make sure you're aware about our In-Game rules before heading into oblivion. Just because we haven't catched you right away doesn't mean that you escaped punishment. Always report bugs, exploits and any other kind of abnormal behavior that you encounter, as stated in our rules. Don't give us a reason to sneak up on you in the first place. Second chance is considered creating a new account, not unbanning an account that has been permanently banned. Since permanent cases have been harming the server/economy and player fairness directly, we show as much mercy as they've shown us and the community. The only way to lower your punishment or be released from it entirely, is by filling a private support ticket or a bug report beforehand. Please note that we do not hand out permanent bans lightly, they're always our last resort. Punishments are based on: Type of Theft, Total account history, amount of work that has been put into fixing the mess, how much/long the abuse has been taking place and so on. Once you're on our radar, we take the time to invest your account logs several years backwards. Investigating is always extremely time consuming, which means that other content will be delayed eventualy. But we take our time to prevent false punishments, and also to understand the core issue, so we can fix it up. We believe that games should be an escape from reality, so show our community that you're better than the real world out there. Support us by reporting. Thank your for your understanding, and your support.

    Failed to connect to patch server

    That's unfortunate. But yes, asia regions have a rather expensive bandwith costs relative to europe / america. And lots of them have still some of the worst infrastructure to date. As such, if our website uses lots of traffic, they might re-route you to a different pop/node. (according to their official statement) However you still benefit from lots of technilogical advantages which speeds up our website immensly. Please note that lots of content is still being delivered through our source host.

    nerf or bigger dealy

    We're currently not touching any skill balancings, as any time spent on the current balance state would be wasted time once the planned changes arrive. Right now, we're fully focused on the normalization and major class rebalance patch that's coming up next. So you have to bare the current skill state until we're ready for the release.

    Guide Event

    Dear GatheringRO players, let's support each other with some new and updated guides by introducing the unique forum event Write-A-Guide! This event has officialy started and will last until the 30th of June. Every new guide that is written within that period of time or every guide that receives a major overhaul by its author will automatically be registered for this event. The main criterion for this event is QUALITY & DETAILED INFORMATION. Writing multiple guides that lack in quality will not improve your chances to be among the winners. The more effort you put into this, the higher the chances we will not let your efforts go to waste. If you want your old guide to be considered, you will have to do some major edits (e.g. if it currently lacks pictures, add those, go further into detail etc.). However that doesn't mean that cluttering your guide with tons of random images will improve its quality. Sometimes less is more, so make sure you create a clean guide everyone is able to pick up with ease. We prefer original guides for our Custom GatheringRO Features or Class Guides as this will help newbies and oldies find their way around GatheringRO. You can also write your own version of guides that already exist but which heavily lack in up-to-dateness (again, make sure the effort you put into it is visible). Keep in mind that in order to qualify guides have to be written in reasonable English and they have to contain high quality images. Lastly, we want to show you that we appreciate your recent guides. That's why we decided to also consider recent guides that are not older than 2 months for this event. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. There can be multiple winners. Prizes are intentionally set very high as each entry requires a lot of effort and contributes greatly to the community. We will choose 1 guide from among the winners which will receive Cash Points as an additional prize, and a 2nd and 3rd prize for an additional Account Plus egg. Prizes for every winner: 1x GatheringRO Surprise Box 2x Surprise Box (15-20 Tokens) 1x Chest of Loyalty 1x Exclusive Costume Golden Question Mark (Equip Location: Upper Head) Additional Prize for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best guide: 1xAccount Plus for 1 Month Additional Prize for the best guide: 1x 2000 Cash Points Summary: Date: 2020.05.21 - 2020.06.30 How to participate: Write a new guide or (significantly) update an old guide of yours Criteria: Quality, up-to-dateness, English (punctuation, grammar etc.), Images Prizes: All winners get the prizes listed above, the best guides win additional prizes Uploading Images: We prefer images being uploaded to our forums rather than using external image hosting services. This ensures that they don't get lost over the years! It's a simple drag&drop upload system, super fast to use and can be used for free. It also helps us to keep your effort for the longest period of time possible. Thank you

    This guide will cover the following about Daily Quests: Introduction Useful Commands Daily Quest Ranks & Rewards Tips and Tricks Introduction Daily Quests are an important feature of GatheringRO as it provides both zenny and coupons that grant access to various items and utilities that enable one to get stronger in the server. To start daily quests, proceed to the "Adventurer's Guild" in Althea (@go adv) and speak to Falmira the Adventurer Guild Member to begin your quest. Useful Commands Before we begin we will need to familiarise ourselves with these muy importante commands that will help you do DQ more efficiently and effectively: @jump allows you to get in and out quick after murdering and pillaging those mooks) @warp allows you to teleport straight into the mooks home-base and lay waste to them while managing to steal a doodah or two.) @aloot rate "Input number between 1-100" (e.g. @aloot rate 1) Allows you to choose which specific percentages range doodah you want because let's face it some of these mooks carry crapola) @aloot item "Input item name or item number" (e.g. @aloot item hung doll) enables you to loot a specific doodah from a mook because what are we going to do with a Poring's ID card? Get in a club? @whereis "Input monster id or monster name" (e.g. @whereis poporing) enables you to take a sneak peak on where the pesky mooks are hiding. @whodrops "Input item name or item #" (e.g. @whodrops puppet) enables you to take see the monsters' belongings before murdering and stealing all or most of their belongings because let's face it Falmira runs a syndicate) @mi gives you information on the mooks such as element, drops, and level. (e.g. @mi jejeling) Wouldn't want to come unprepared and get your butt-owskie handed to you! @storage for your personal handler kafra storage needs. @gstorage is only for those who run their own partnership syndicates with Falmira. Daily Quest Ranks & Rewards C-Rank: Rank C is an easy job, see... some of the mooks owe the Adventurers guild a lot of gold and they decided to flee with the moolah. We showed them kindness and we our repaid with disrespect. So we ask you to collect the payment... IN BLOOD!!! Kill a certain amount of mooks and you get a reward. What happens if you want to murder more? Not a problem! Except we're only paying you for the X amount we give. B-Rank: Rank B is a little trickier but it could be the easiest among the tasks. We don't want you to baptise anyone with death but instead, eternal servitude to the Adventurers guild... See... how this organisation survives is through labour, hard-work, and moolah. You are our hard-worker and our labourers are those mooks who you deliver to us. We need you to kidnap a certain amount of people and we will graciously reward you. Make sure no one sees you. Rank B are taming quests, you don't need to tame the monster you just need the egg. A-Rank: Rank A is a little easy but it could be the hardest. We need supplies to run this organisation and we always run out on supplies for certain items, which is why we give you the task to do the grocery shopping. It's a little tricky because some of the supplies we ask you to get for us aren't available in the regular market, so we are gonna need you pillage some villages for it, but for the regular supplies we will give you a list of fences where you can grab them from. Here are some notable NPC's & Quests to aid you in your Grocery Shopping. Simply open the spoiler and Ctrl + F to find items you need. S-Rank: RANK S is the trickiest, The adventurers guild has been the biggest organisation since this world came to be, and we hate competition. From time to time one of those mooks decides to step up and become an "entrepreneur" or "competition" and they think they can organise their own Adventurers guilds, but they don't know there can't be any other syndica- *cough* *cough* Guild! Simple thing is they can't run it, they'll divide the market and then crash it, so we need you to eliminate all the competition before it even becomes an issue. Be careful! I hear most, if not all of them have body guards, watch your back! ===TO BE CONTINUED=== Credits: Special thanks to @Kazalus for inspiring me to make this guide, proof-read, and by adding spice and everything nice.

    Sura - TC & GOH to OP

    I agree if you say sura is invincible, because sura got mobility, high damage,regen (from bg boots, and sura skill) and can cure all disease (froze,burn,bleeding,etc). I personally having hard time when facing sura as ranger. It's not about the damage (since i can reduce it thx to emp armor set and cards), but it's about sura cooldown is extremely low and high mobility. Sura can back and forth dealing damage like super fast. And if sura hp/sp is low, they can body reloct away,fast regen, and back to enemy again with speed of light, and yea... some usually using (Steel Body and Alt + F4 combo) in the middle of fight to get away when HP is low (which maybe sir Eve can do something about it?). If only ranger warg can grow wings and fly, it can solve sura high mobility problem Sou... I think nerfing sura skill cooldown might be a good idea, bcs i think sura TC damage got nerfed before (Correct me if I'm wrong). And... That's all for my feedback. I love fair play games, but again, it's in @Everade hands to fix it or not. I'll just follow the river~ Thx

    Running gRO on Mac

    Greetings to my fellow citizens of gRO, I hope you are all well and safe during this crazy time we are in. As the title of this post suggests, we were somehow able to make gRO run on our 2014 Macbook Air (Yosemite) and would like to share how it worked for us: Download WineBottler and make sure to get the one labeled as "stable". Open the WineBottler Combo .dmg file. You will see a couple of icons, but what you must do is copy "Wine" into the "Applications" folder (drag and drop works). You should see Wine as one of the apps you have installed after. Before running Wine, go to your Mac's System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General tab > make sure "(Mac) App Store and Identified Developers" option is selected. Go to your Applications folder, run Wine and make sure the Wine icon is showing on the task bar. If the wineglass icon is there, it's means Wine is ready to roll. This item must be tricky and could require some help from a Windows unit: Make sure your gRO files are ready and saved in a folder on your Mac. Basically, you will need an already extracted gRO game folder and transfer it over onto your Mac. For me, I copied the whole gRO folder I have previously installed on my Windows laptop. While Wine is running, go inside your gRO folder, look for and click the "GatheringRO-Patcher.exe" file > Open With > select Wine (default). A window will pop-up where you may simply go with the default option selected (Run directly in <file location>) and click "Go". From here, the patcher should show up and you should be able to play the game shortly. In any case you are asked to download a file required for Wine, you may search Google for it. I got 1-2 prompts that asked me to download something to be able to run Wine. Unfortunately, I was not able to document them, but I simply Google'd and found what I needed. Any feedback would be appreciated! I'd like to know if it will work for you as it did with us. P.S.: We did the process last month (April) and downloaded WineBottler Combo version 1.8.6. Hopefully there won't be any significant difference if ever the version you come accross with on their site has changed.
