Ragnarok Journey Gameplay

Ragnarok Journey is a relaunch of the classic MMORPG, which provides an opportunity to experience the retro gameplay once again from a new perspective. In this version, all of the locations and quests are authentically recreated based on the original game. Unlike the source project's universe, it has much more features, reworked graphics and smooth animations.

Ragnarok Journey introduces you to the interface with the help of tutorials. At the beginning of the game, you will select the gender of the hero and the nickname; various class designations will appear later after you decide on the appearance features. In total, you can create up to five characters. Unlike in the first RO, this version includes new world bosses, which appear in seasonal and weekly events; also, you will have to check the game daily to participate in the time-limited quests and receive free rewards.

The universe of Ragnarok Journey is filled with broad locations, which will be explored by your character during the gameplay. RO has not only immersive and exciting plot; it's full of entertaining side quests. When you complete the tasks, you will level up more quickly and receive mounts, wings, pets and other items. The higher your level, the more zones you can discover. If you don't want to explore the world manually, you can enable the autoplay function. Once it's switched on, your champion will fight mobs, talk to NPCs and complete the missions on their own.

The PvP mode is more suitable for advanced players because it's fast-paced and complicated; also, it's more comfortable for multiplayer gameplay, so you will have to gather a team to success in battles. You can find teammates through chat. Moreover, you can form or join a guild, surround yourself with friends and fight against other parties. You can explore multi-layered dungeons with your teammates, and it's much more profitable than solo gameplay because of the specific bonuses for teams. It's possible to communicate with other users privately through your inbox and plan the matches or chat; once you get closer, you can marry characters of the opposite gender. Besides, you must purchase a unique ring to marry another player.

Ragnarok Journey provides you with incredible sets of armour and weapons; you can equip armour on the pets as well. Still, the browser doesn't always reflect the small items that the character wears. You can personalize the character with many colourful costume designs, which are kept in your hero's bag. The inventory includes four pages for your objects; additional sections can be opened with crystal currency starting from the second page. You can get crystals by participating in different events and competing with elite bosses in numerous dungeons.

The main goal for a Novice character is to level up and collect the enchanted weapons. Arming your hero with rare gear will increase the attack and defence parameters. To maximize these figures, you can upgrade the ammunition through the character window. It is possible to purchase the equipment with real cash; however, it will disable any further editing. The other option is to keep grinding for the loot yourself. It is time-consuming as you will have to defeat powerful creatures to collect the droppings and exchange these items with traders for more valuable things.

After you learn more about the quest and mechanics of the game, Ragnarok Journey will let you pick up the class. Once level 10 is reached, you will need to select a profession. You will master that job by level 50, where it is required to get another one. Acquire skill points to evolve your warrior and select a path for enhancing your character's abilities to create a hero with unique statistics. Remember that changing the class will default all the game progress.

Ragnarok Journey Classes

The game has cut the original broad scope of jobs down to six.
