Ragnarok Zero - Pre-Renewal (kRO)

Recommended Posts

If some of you haven't been keeping up with the news, I post a lot of it on MC (for this news, you can see more info here: https://www.midgard-community.com/information/ragnarok-zero-new-adventures-begin-r25/). 


kRO has announced a new Ragnarok.... Ragnarok Zero. What is Ragnarok Zero? Basically put, Ragnarok Zero is going to be a new beginning... back to when it wasn't Renewal! With this in mind, they want you to remember the olden day memories we all have bundled in our heads. They are also doing a lot of new UI changes and adding tons of new content... of course keeping everything Trans-based and no Third Jobs.  We all remember those days of playing RO before renewal... and well, kRO wants to make sure we keep them and relive them through Ragnarok Zero.


Here are some infographics that I translated to give us more of a sense of what's in store for us. 








What are you thoughts? I really love that new navigation interface along with the character creation... and glad they are putting the random options enchantments in this mode.



Here is their opening animation for Ragnarok Zero:

PS: You'll see the Doram Race as well.



Correction: The navigation UI isn't -new-. It may have just been slightly modified a tad (according to the translation). 


Topic Updated: November 29th 2017


kRO has released more information about Ragnarok Zero. Here is a low down:



  • Ragnarok Online ZERO will be using a pre-renewal status system. They believe having a random item options for equipment will make it beneficial to farm equipment (as oppose to the way it use to be). There will be an increase in armor resistance by 3x compared to previously. Experience based on level difference and Drop Penalty have been adjusted. Global cooldown of the skills have been limited to a maximum of 0.3 seconds.


Change to the Quest Structure:

  • Levelling up and farming in the new system makes it easier to progress through various quests.

    • 1) Quest rewards

      • This system that has been added provides a certain amount of quest rewarded experience towards a certain overall experience gained. As a result, if you continue you complete various quests, you can obtain a ton of equipment easily and you can also find various items such as consumables.

      • newquestsystem.gif

    • 2) Tips Box Reorganization:

      • Normally, the Tipbox offers a variety of information. There are tons of quests throughout Midgard and this tipbox will provide you a vast amount of information pertaining to various quests you can do throughout Midgard. You will be able to search for information.

      • searchforquests.gif

    • 3) Change the UI Structure and the structure of Quests

      • A lot of information and the UI of the Quest system has been changed. Everything has been adjusted so that it's easier to navigate through quests by selecting on options. Doing so will open up the navigation window.

Billing System

  • This part doesn't really pertain much to private servers... but overall: 

    Ragnarok Online: ZERO offers partial subscription services like Ragnarok Online. 
    This is to allow more Ragnarok users to enjoy the game. 
    In addition, Ragnarok Online: ZERO will sell the monthly premium service and character premium service, which 
    will change the billing system by introducing a new product called "gelstar".
    > Premium Service Products
    Ragnarok Online: ZERO offers a wide range of premium services.
    1) Account Premium Service: Account Package
    The monthly premium service is a service that increases experience, drop rate, death penalty, and warehouse capacity. 
    This service applies to all characters in your account at the time of purchase.
    2) Character Premium Service: Essential Package
    The Essential Package is a character premium service that adds convenience to the progress of the game. 
    This product has a 20% increase in experience and drop rate, and it also provides a limited number of 10 [Dew Water of the World] with some functions of Gelstar every day. (Please be aware that the dew of the world number will be redeemed every time you receive the remainder of the world.) 
    Through the dew of the world number, you can conveniently use the world map transfer service or receive special buffs.
    3) Character Premium Service: Hunting Package
    The hunting package is a character that can receive 50% experience and 100% increase in drop rate twice daily for 1 hour each day.
    Premium package. 
    Ragnarok Online: At ZERO, you can sell or combine the effects of an existing combat manual or bubble gum as a separate item.
    This is a very attractive premium item for users who want to nurture quickly.
    4) About PC room premium service
    We will inform you about PC room premium service. Ragnarok Online: ZERO no longer offers 
    experience points and drop rates, death penalty effects, and proverbial buffs on PC room premium services . 
    The main effect is transferred to "Essential Package", and only "PC room mileage" is served in PC room. 
    "PC room mileage" through the special toolbox coupon and costume helmet replacement coupon can be used to exchange.


Fiver Field:

  • In Ragnarok Zero, they are introducing a new field titled "Fiver Field". This field will contain stronger monsters compared to normal monsters. Killing these strong monsters will provide you a chance to obtain powerful equipment / items (better random options). 
  • fiverfieldmonster.gifbetterrandomoption.gif


Item Farming Structure:

  • 1) Random Option:
    • Ragnarok Zero provides players with random option for dropped equipment. It is more vast which allows items to be more specialized towards short range, ranged, and magical weapons. There are also options such as HP/SP absorption, fixed casting reduction, and some options that are exempt from all in-game equipment. 
  • 2) Specialized Equipment Upgrade:
    • Players will now be able to get occupational specialized gear when completing Memorial Dungeons. These gears can be upgraded based on your level.
    • randomitemoptionsspecialized.gif
  • 3) Advanced Equipment Combination:
    • You will be able to collection various items / materials throughout Midgard to help you upgrade certain equipment. These items collected must be given to an NPC to upgrade your gear. The material needed is Mithril. 
  • 4) The Flame: Torre, the ruler of Ore
    • Beside every refiner NPC, Torre, the ruler of Ore, will also be there. He is able to exchange ores you find into other various ores. He will also be able to refine Mithril Ores you find into Mithril Gemstones.

it's basically renewal with a level cap and 0.9% base exp rates and you lose 10% base/job exp on death instead of 1%. you reach job lv.50 at base lv.30. it's likely p2w with those random box buff potions (it may be removed on official release but i doubt it) these retards aren't even up to date with how much lootboxes are hated right now.

drop table is different, it's infested with quests and half of them don't even work.. despite having a new client they haven't addressed the cell lag. the episodes will basically be the same. all of this can be done from a day of scripting, many koreans were enraged and disappointed.

they claimed in the interview that they won't include cash items that directly effect the gameplay but they added a npc in izlude that sells random boxes that give upto 18 different buff potions. jelstar will be the token currency like silvervine in re:start to open these boxes / warp to a certain map (not released yet) phJIpNP.jpg

players hoped  it to be far from p2w but it seems to be clear at this point.. and i haven't even got to the part that the game has 3 different vip systems.


the status formula will be the same as the renewal.

shadow equipment will not be included in this version.

they are considering not to implent rerolls on random options from dropped items, there can be upto 3 options and the drop effect colors are (white for 1 option, blue for 2 options, gold for 3 options) mp regen % is extremely common and i've seen stats like 164 defense on tights.

their goal is to implent upto trans lv.99 their cash shop / random box idea is directly from lineage m. their plan is to reach top 1 in sales (LOL)

the dynamic field which has a trigger that must be met to spawn a certain boss monster. (example: kill 200 poring 100 lunatic 50 pupa to spawn a eclipse. (example2: examine (click) a certain object(s) to spawn a boss)

the exp penalty for fighting monsters +15 levels higher than you will be removed (-15 levels lower will still remain) - this may be wrong, it's confusing.

overpowered cards like golden thief bug or trash boss cards will have their card stats changed or swap their equip slot

they are using a new engine so we might get some bugs fixed. ie: cell bug

it will also not be possible to run multiple clients.

the after delay for skills will be limited to a maximum of 0.3 seconds so it will likely be easier to spam skills.

there will be some craftable costumes like this one at lv.30 and wings (some are afraid it may require cash ingredients)

@astralprojection yes hercules support any existing zero clients. But sadly not all versions can be unpacked.

For client exe you can see

For full client, you can download from gravity zero site. Or use one premade somewhere on rathena forums.

For now not all new zero pckets implimented, this mean cant see some new effects.

try start as admin, or different install location. it opens setup first time (For me) for initial setup/registry. Then not again.
