Gameplay

Job system

Aside from simply selecting a class, players can also choose a profession. You choose to be a Chef, Alchemist, Artisan Gold Blacksmith. Each job specializes in crafting a specific type of items which will be beneficial to the players themselves or to other players. citation needed ] To increase your level in a specific job, you would need to gain Job Experience. In order to gain job experience, one would need to constantly craft it on the basis of job or mine / gather materials. To get the recipes you would need to talk to the respective Job NPC.

In addition to the job system, there is also a newly introduced Dual-Life System. These roles offer unique capabilities that help in expanding the capabilities of a specific character.

Dual-Life system

Of all the classes brought back to life from the original Ragnarok Online, only the Merchant class was not included. The new Dual-Life System allows character development in a new light. NPC’s (non-playable characters) while they are offline, rendering their services (healing, crafting, tailoring etc.). ) to active players to make a profit (such as equipment crafting).

Card system

In a recent interview with Gravity Co., Ltd. CTO Jin-soo Jun, it was revealed that the card system would be making a comeback, but this time the cards would be attached to the character instead of individual items. The reason for this change is that in Ragnarok Online many rare items were often overshadowed by low-level items socketed with powerful cards. This made the invention more difficult, and it proved to be limiting when making new content. [6]Moreover, many players had trouble getting such cards because they were incredibly rare. To counter these issues, cards will be implemented in the ranks of bronze, silver, and gold. Therefore, a gold card will be difficult to obtain, since the bronze card will be relatively common. This new system has been modified in the “Limited Edition Test” so that instead of bronze, silver, and gold cards, there will be regular and special cards. By combining up to 5 different cards at the master card, players will be rewarded with a special card which will further increase its stats. Once a player has the maximum amount of cards equipped, he or she must destroy one of the equipped cards to replace it with a new one. However, replacing a card will result in the card being sent back to the inventory instead.

Pet system

The pet system from Ragnarok Online will also be making a comeback. In Ragnarok Online 2 Players are required to collect the Monster DNA in order to make a pet, The Pets will assist players with attack and buff or de-buff. [7]
