    World Bosses - Events

New automated events are on the horizon!
World Bosses are epic event monsters encountered throughout the open world of GatheringRO that spawn a treasure chest when defeated.
They spawn at sheduled times which are announced ingame, 5 minutes before the boss appears.

Checkout our dedicated World Boss Event timer, so you'll never miss a fight!

They've been introduced with an all-new looting system allows us to reward every single participant upon fighting epic world bosses.
You'll be rewarded with at least a 61642.png Evil Boss Fragment and a wide variety of rare loot which can be gained at a lower drop chance.


Our original monster invasions have also been improved with great rewards for you to explore!
The more cities you save from their attacks, the higher the chances to earn rare rewards become.

More details on all our Automated Events timetable can be found in our wiki.

    Party Based Memorial Dungeons

Always keep an eye open on the global chat for players asking for people to join them for PHQ. (Pro Hunter Quest).
This is your chance to find new friends to play with and enjoy all the latest Memorial Dungeons (Instances). /bo

There are now also daily challenges for additional rewards for those owning a Pro Hunter License Pro Hunter License.

These bosses also support our unique treasure chest reward system just like the world bosses, so you'll never have to share your loot with anyone and can team up with as many people as you like!

Of course, we've been busy adding lots of great new Episodical quest story lines, maps and monsters to the ever-growing Ragnarok Online universe!
And it keeps getting bigger!

Here are some cherry picked Update Hubs which have been released lately:

But there's so much more!

    General Content

    Althea - Capital City

Althea has been renovated from the blade of a grass up to the last brick of the castle!
The changes are not just about barely visual improvements for eye-candy, but also from a comfort prespective when it comes to its available services.

Especially new players should have a better time understanding the new city landscape.

    Login Rewards

Every day, upon staying online for a full hour, a login rewards window will appear right in the middle of the screen.

All that is required to receive a reward is to be online for an hour during that day, and the reward for that will wait until it is claimed.

This Login Reward system also comes with hundreds of new costumes that are available through a weekly rotating shop system.




    Playable Classes - Balance

All classes recieved new skills and we did our best with an entire re-balancing of all classes.
We're still providing balancing updates to keep the PvP content enjoyable, more than ever before.

As we listen to our player feedback closely, feel free to share your balancing thoughts at any time with us.

Also with the new race Doram you've got a new race and class, the Summoner to explore!

    Cards & Legendaries - Economy

A vast amount of changes have also been made to lighten up the access to31023.pngMVP cards  and other end-game content such as legendaries.
This should help returnees and new players to have a better time catching up and focus on enjoying the game.

Also, if you're a proud owner of one of the original legendary headgears, you may now have the possibility to upgrade their visuals!
Or you can take a look at the brand new legendary headgears that have been introduced during your time off.
