NovaRO is a free-to-play Ragnarok Online private server that seeks out to bring you the best and most fun Renewal experience possible. With us you can enjoy a multitude of official Instances, fully implemented 3rd jobs, functioning Achievement and Title Systems, and much more. We work hard on our updates and take pride in being able to offer something for everyone. So hop online and begin forging your own unforgettable adventure! If you are new to the game, you can read our Getting Started guide for more information.
Our custom features are designed for maximum engagement while providing you with the top-tier official content. To this effort, we have removed the Renewal drop penalty and increased the party share limit so you can play with more friends while obtaining full loot.
We have also worked tirelessly to keep RO fresh by developing authentic experiences, which include our famed seasonal events. Below are a few exerpts of what we have on offer. If you would like to learn more about our customizations, including the player commands we provide, all of the other nitty-gritty details can be found on our Wiki.
With many events, there is always something to do! Our automated events activate several times a day. When it is time for such an event to begin, it is broadcast in-game, after which a glowing NPC makes an appearance in Prontera. You have a couple of minutes to talk to this NPC to join before the entrance is closed. Winners are rewarded with Gold Coins.
Make sure to also keep an eye out for our GM-run events as well! We broadcast these in advance over our Discord. If you would like to receive these notifications, type "!iam events" in #bot-commands to assign yourself to this role. Most of the events hosted by Game Masters give out Event Tickets not only to winners but to participants, too!
While our official language remains English, we are a truly international server with players from all corners of the world. This means that there will always be many players online regardless of your timezone. Furthermore, as a small testimony to our European friends, we are proud to say we are fully GDPR compliant.
For PvP oriented players we have Battlegrounds, that contain special modes such as Conquest, Guardian Battle, Stone Control, Triple Inferno and KvM. If instead of fighting other players you would rather team up to take on difficult bosses, don't hesistate to try our unique Monster Hunter instances. These are challenging end-game PvM experiences for small parties.
If character customization is closer to your heart, we have a great number of headgears and quests for fashionistas both big and small. Every single headgear and even some garments can be made into costumes inside our Main Office 3rd floor: the Style Boutique. Gear costumized this way confers no gameplay benefits, but this means you can wear another hat undernearth while looking as stylish as ever! In addition, our Stylist offers hundreds of free color palettes to mix and match. Or, if the default look doesn't please your eye, perhaps you would like to wear an alternative outfit? There are tons of possible looks available. Come find your favorite so you can slay monsters and make new friends while looking fabulous!
