If this is your first time playing Ragnarok Online, our Introduction to Ragnarok Online will help you with the game. For players who are transitioning from Classic (99/50 max level) or Pre-Renewal (transcendent and 99/70 max level) to Renewal (175/60 max level) in NovaRO, it is strongly recommended for you to also check our Introduction to Renewal guide. If you'd like to find out more about the server's unique features, see the Introduction to NovaRO page. Basic information and details about the server such as rates, max stats, and max level are in the Server Information page.

If you are having technical problems with installation or the game client, you may find a solution in the Troubleshooting page.

Where is the Job Changer?

The Job Changer NPC and other convenience NPCs are inside the Main Office building in Prontera, just a little to the left of the center of the town.


There you can also find a Platinum Skill NPC, Stat and Skill Reset NPC, Daily Rewards NPC, Gold Coin Shop and Gold Coin Exchange NPC, among others. On the second floor of Main Office you can find a Card Remover NPC, Costume Maker NPC, Feel Reset NPC, and Dead Branch Room.

Can I job change into a 3rd Class without transcending/rebirth?

You could but you will miss out on a lot of benefits if you don't transcend/go through the rebirth process. Upon transcending/rebirthing, you gain additional MaxHP, MaxSP, and stat points. You will be able to learn trans-only skills and wear trans-only equipment as well. It is highly recommended to reach Job Lv 70 before changing into 3rd Class. Otherwise you will never be able to gain the missing skill points from job changing at Job Lv 69 or lower.

This is the typical character progression:

Note that in NovaRO, class-crossing is not enabled. In other words, if you were an Assassin and have transcended into High Novice, you can only job change into High Thief, then into Assassin Cross, then Guillotine Cross.

Expanded classes and Doram race typically progress as follows. Note that they are unable to transcend/rebirth, so their level will not be reset to 1/1 when job changing.

There are some pros and cons of playing a non-transcendent class.

  • Pros:
    • You can reach higher levels relatively earlier than trans classes.
    • You can access certain dungeons and instances earlier.
    • Some newer equipment like Faceworm Skins and Temporal Boots are customized in NovaRO, so that Rebellion, Kagerou, and Oboro class can equip them.
    • Baby 3rd classes are utterly adorable.
  • Cons:
    • You will have less HP and SP, and less stat points to distribute.
    • You cannot learn trans-only skills.
    • You cannot wear trans-only equipment.

What about Dorams?

You can learn more about them on the Doram wiki page.

Why not customize Taekwon class so they can reach Lv 175 as well?

Because their 3rd class, namely Star Emperor and Soul Reaper, are already implemented! You can check their release notes by clicking here.

I can't decide which class to play, help!

If you’re starting fresh, the most newbie-friendly and affordable job classes are usually physical and ranged classes. With equipment that enables HP or SP leeching such as Thanatos Weapons from Ghost Palace, Rideword Hat, and loyal Incubus pet, physical classes don't have to rely too much on potions. Assuming you’re playing alone and will occasionally join parties with randoms in PvM environment, you'd want to play a physical type class with good DPS. If you are playing with friends, or if you're going to join parties with other players, tank classes and classes with good support skills are generally always needed.

I job changed but now I'm stuck at Lv 99!

It is a visual bug. You can do one of these things:

  • Keep leveling. When you reach Lv 100 your experience bar will fix itself.
  • Relog. When you log back in your experience bar should display the correct EXP amount.
    • As long as you log back in to the same character immediately, your Daily Rewards timer should not be affected.

How many DEX do I need to reach instant cast?

See also: Cast Time

In Renewal, you need (DEX x 2) + INT = 530 to eliminate Variable Cast Time (also referred to as Fluctuative/Fluctuating Cast Time in several item descriptions). That means you can reach 0 Variable Cast Time if your character's stats and gears amount to:

  • 530 INT, or
  • 265 DEX, or
  • 170 INT and 180 DEX, or
  • 190 INT and 170 DEX

However, none of this will reduce Fixed Cast Time. Most skills consist of 80% Variable and 20% Fixed Cast Time. Your INT and DEX stats can reduce the Variable portion of the cast time. As for Fixed Cast Time, it's usually reduced by buffs and equipment.

There are several ways of reducing overall cast time:

  • Wearing cast time-reducing equipment and cards (e.g. Crown of Deceit, Kathryne Keyron Card, Cunning Shadow Set).
  • Buff skills (e.g. Archbishop's Clementia and Sacrament, Kagerou/Oboro's 16th Night, Sorcerer's Summon Ventus + Elemental Control Lv 1).
  • Consuming stat foods (particularly INT and DEX foods).
  • Have a Bard class buff you with Poem of Bragi. Their skill can also reduce After Cast Delay (global cooldown) of skills.
  • Wearing Temporal DEX Boots while also having 120 base DEX. This will reduce Fixed Cast Time by 0.5 second.

Note that % Fixed Cast Time reduction will not stack. Only the highest % Fixed Cast Time reduction will be applied. Additionally, skills such as Warlock's Reading Spellbook and Release can also bypass normal cast time and cooldown time.

How do I delete my character?

  1. Go to the Character Select screen. Select the character you want to delete and click the Delete button.
  2. The character will sit and a timestamp will appear above them (it should follow your computer's clock).
  3. If you're certain you will delete that character, let it sit and return to it in 24 hours. In the mean time, do not click Cancel, and do not log in with that character.
  4. After 24 hours, you can click Del and you will be prompted to input the "deletion password," which is your account's email. You can view your account email by logging in the website.
  5. If you changed your mind and do not wish to delete that character, click Cancel. The timestamp will disappear and you will be able to log in with that character as usual.

What is PC, R>, LF>, LFM>, LFP>, etc?

  • BMD : Bios Island, Morse's Cave, and Temple of the Demon God
  • DPS : Damage per Second. Generally refers to Ranger or Rebellion as they are usually the main damage dealers in most parties.
  • LF : Looking For
  • LFM : Looking For Members. May be used to recruit party members.
  • LFP : Looking For Party. May be used when you want to join parties. You should also state your Level.
  • MH : Monster Hunter
  • NONR : No Offer, No Reply. Generally means you should state your price when offering to buy or sell something, and try to haggle with the other person.
  • OGH : Old Glast Heim
  • PC : Price Check. You should do this in the #trade channel in-game.
  • R : Recruiting (may be used to recruit party members or guild members)
  • RGM : Recruiting Guild Members
  • RTG : Ready to Go
    • This may indicate that the party will start the instance as soon as you join, or they are already inside the instance and you have to hurry and catch up to them. You have to beware of the second one, as some instances give you kill quest/hunting quest of a specific enemy that only appear at certain points of the instance, and you can only claim rewards if you are present when the party kills the enemy. For example, if an OGH party leader/member says their party is RTG, it's a good idea to ask if they're already inside and have killed Root of Corruption. If they've killed it then you won't be able to claim the rewards, and it'd be best for you to join another party.

Farming Zeny and Equipment

How do I farm Zeny? Where should I go to farm Zeny?

The most common way to farm Zeny is by selling loot from monsters to NPC. In most cases it's better if you have leveled up quite a bit and have upgraded from Eden gears before you start farming Zeny. However some players would like to gain levels and loot at the same time, so here are some popular Zeny-farming maps along with the recent Zeny Guide and Farming 101 Guide. Sorted according to recommended levels:

  • Gonryun Dungeon 1F : Suitable for Lv 90 - 100. Collect Honey and Royal Jelly from Zipper Bear, Bloody Butterfly, and Enchanted Peach Tree. Try not to pop the Dead Branches, you might summon a monster you can't handle.
  • Desert Wolves outside Ice Cave dungeon: Suitable for Lv 100+. These wolves move rather slowly and drop Blood of Wolf (+20 INT Food ingredient) that other players would be willing to buy, and Crimson Daggers. You may also go deeper in the dungeon to collect Ice Crystal from Iceicle and Ice Piece from Gazeti (+20 DEX Food ingredient).
  • Magma Dungeon 2F : Suitable for Lv 100 - 120. All the loot from all monsters sell for a decent amount of Zeny. You can also collect Doram equipment that can be exchanged into Doram Token, see Doram Equipment Exchange.
  • Rachel Sanctuary 1F - 3F : Suitable for Lv 110+. The first level consists of slow-moving Demi Human enemies that can be rounded up easily, and drop Bloody Runes that can be sold to NPC for a decent amount of Zeny. You can also go deeper to farm Witched Starsand from Hodremlin and Prickly Fruit from Beholder.
  • Juperos 1F : Suitable for Lv 115 - 125. All the loot dropped by Venatu and Dimik sells for a decent amount of Zeny.
  • Geffenia : Suitable for Lv 120+. Diamond Ring and Gold Ring dropped by Incubus and Succubus can be sold to NPC for a good amount of Zeny. Some mobs may cast Hallucination on you, causing your screen to turn upside down. It can be cured with Green Potion, Panacea, or Royal Jelly. You can hunt some Violys to get Royal Jelly.
  • Crimson Weapon farming : Some of the more sought-after Crimson weapons include Crimson Revolver from Metaling (Lv 80+), Crimson Rod from Bathory (Lv 80+), Crimson Mace from Petite (Lv 80+), Crimson Katar from Headless Mule (Lv 80+), Crimson Dagger from Porcellio (Lv 80) and Desert Wolf (Lv 100+), Crimson Bow from Owl Baron and Kavach Icarus (Lv 120+).
  • Oridecon farming : You can farm Oridecon from Alarm in Clock Tower, Anolian in Glast Heim Culvert/Sewers, Wanderer in Glast Heim Castle, or Nightmare Wanderer in Nightmare Glast Heim Castle. Alternatively you can farm Rough Oridecon from Banaspaty in Dewata Dungeon.

Tip: Create a Merchant and level it up until it learns both 38.png Overcharge and 37.png Discount at Lv 10. Use the Merchant to sell loot and buy supplies. You can also use the Merchant's 41.png Vending skill to sell valuables in NovaRO's Market (@go 37).

Tip: Using @autotrade while vending on your Merchant will log you out of your character and account but keep your Vending Shop up for 72 hours. Keep in mind there is also a 3% vending tax included on all sales made during Vending, whether you are using @autotrade or not.

Tip: Any character is able to open a 2535.png Buying Store to buy materials from other players.

This is what a Buying Store typically looks like from another player's point of view; notice the shop icon looks like stacks of coins.


Drag your items from the Available Items window into the Selling Items window, then click Sell to complete the transaction. Your items will go to the Buying player, and their Zeny will be transferred to you.

Tip: Some seemingly random loot may be useful for something, whether it's for a quest, for crafting/brewing, or used as skill catalysts. You can make a quick buck stocking up these materials and selling them to other players. Use the @whobuys or @wb command in-game, and check the following list for other valuable loot:

What class should I use to farm Zeny?

Players farm Zeny using characters with good mobility, survival capability, and carrying capacity. Physical classes such as Rune Knights (RK), Royal Guards (RG), Genetics, Mechanics, Guillotine Cross (GX), Kagerou/Oboro (they have a self-healing skill that literally allows them to farm until they reach 90% weight), Rangers, and Rebellions are popular choices.

Job classes that use physical attack skills benefit from wearing HP- and SP-leeching equipments (e.g. Rideword Hat, any Thanatos Weapon, Hunter Fly card, Earth Deleter card, Sky Deleter card, Nidhoggur's Shadow Garb), enabling them to farm for long periods of time without having to carry potions or returning to town to heal. Having a loyal Incubus or Succubus pet is also beneficial for them.

Suras are better suited for a more precise farming style, when you only need specific item(s) dropped by only one or two types of monsters spread across maps that are large, difficult to access, and/or hard to navigate on foot.

Tip: Use the following commands to make your farming sessions easier (see Player Commands):

  • @autoloot (any value between 1-100) : Enables you to automatically pick up loot only of certain drop rates.
  • @al : Automatically picks up all loot from monsters you kill. Equivalent to @autoloot 100.
  • @alootid +(item ID/name) : Enables autoloot of item specified (e.g. "@alootid +Jellopy" or "@alootid +909" are equivalent)
  • @alootid -(item ID/name) : Adds item to autoloot blacklist (will not be autolooted, e.g. "@alootid -Jellopy")
  • For more autoloot options, see Player Commands

What other gears are there besides Mora gears?

There are numerous equipment available in the game and various ways of obtaining them. You can check a more many of those on the Equipment Guides page.

Where is the item/monster database?

Generally, there are several information sources that NovaRO players use:

  • NovaRO Market : You have to be logged in to use this feature. You can view item description and their trading prices in NovaRO.
  • divine pride : Provides mostly up-to-date information about gears, cards, and monsters. Also provides some skill information but not very detailed.
  • RateMyServer item and monster database : Adjustable EXP and item drop rates, and provides item scripts as well but generally slower to update, and may not accurately reflect the most current version of the item or monster. However RMS is still a good source for item crafting quests and to help you navigate to certain maps. You can also search for skill information, occasionally with more detailed information than the in-game tool tip.
  • iRO Wiki and their item database : Although this is mainly for iRO, it's still a decent source for quest guides and skill information.
  • item information, monster information, and skill information : It may ask you to turn off Ad-Blocker but this is The Source. It provides detailed monster information, and item information is usually enhanced with a list of its recent buy/sell price. The skill information is no more detailed than in-game tool tip but it provides a list of related equipment when available.
