Enjoy Ragnarok Online like the very first day! Join Now

Welcome to OriginsRO!

OriginsRO is a low rates (5x/5x/5x/3x) Ragnarok Online server, with pre-Renewal mechanics and official-like gameplay. What makes us unique among private servers, other than the lack of a donation system (and related unbalanced custom items) and game-breaking custom NPCs, is our episode-based release schedule. Just like official servers did, we’ll be adding features and content little by little, so that players will be able to enjoy the true origins of Ragnarok Online.

To make sure you won’t get bored, we offer some fancy little features that official servers lack, such as a larger amount of hair and cloth colors as well as hairstyles, hand-picked to make sure they all fit well within the RO world, and an unique Hometown-based skin color system.

We also offer some convenience features, such as grouping all of your game accounts within your Master Account (read: forum account), so that you won’t have to remember several usernames and passwords when you log in to the game, but just one (or none, if you wish to save your login data on your computer, our launcher offers that), and all of your characters will be able to access the same Master Storage to share items.

The Event’s Helpers are located in Santa’s House in Lutie, they’ll give you the possibility to create special Christmas Gifts.
Speak with Jasmine first and she’ll explain you how to wrap a gift.

Find the Event Ushers in the main towns, they’ll offer you a free warp to Lutie.

OriginsRO Episode 0.7

Hello Players!

Another content update for OriginsRO is out!

Episode 0.7

Some Press Releases from the Kafra Headquarters:

Luoyang

During an exploration campaign promoted by King Tristan Gaebolg III, adventurers discovered a captivating faraway city embedded within a mountainous region surrounded by forests. The city, named Luoyang, has its own unique products, invented by its people, that cannot be found in any other land. However, unlike Amatsu or Kunlun where foreigners are welcomed, a considerable faction in Luoyang ostracizes outside cultures in order to protect their own unique culture.
It is now possible, though, to access the town by way of ship from the port of Alberta.
Rumor says that an enormous amount of treasure, comparable to that in the Schwarzwald Republic, lies hidden in Luoyang.

A short summary of the new content of Episode 0.7:

  • Maps: Town and Field of Luoyang, The Royal Tomb, Inside the Royal Tomb and Suei Long Gon (Luoyang Dungeon).
  • Quests: Most of the quests from, or related to Luoyang; First-class tutorial quests.

Note: Even though we decided to keep the ‘beta’ title for this episode, we’re confident about the server’s stability, so it’s planned that NO WIPES will (ever) occur past this stage.

War of Emperium Tryout

Due to popular demand, WoE will be reinstated on OriginsRO.

War of Emperium was removed and the castle closed due to a lack of player interest. The low attendance rates resulted in one guild dominating WoE.

Now, after several months of testing and large amounts of player feedback (thanks to everyone who contributed), the Origins staff believes it is time to give WoE another go.

A tryout will be held Saturday, June 6th, at 16:00 server time (GMT +2). The duration of the tryout will be 2 hours and will feature a different ruleset.

WoE Tryout

The tryout rules are as follow:

  • Only one castle will be enabled.
  • The castle will not be under player control, and will be invaded by monsters.
  • Two hours time limit.
  • Pets will be disabled within the castle.
  • The winning guild will receive one week of unrestricted access to the castle’s dungeon.
  • The winning guild will receive an amount of assorted Treasure Chests spawned, upon WoE end.
  • Economic and defensive investments will be disabled during the first week.
  • Dual clienting inside the castle will be disabled.

Permanent WoE

One week after the tryout, depending on player feedback, WoE will be officially reinstated as a weekly event. The castle shall be wiped and ownership will be revoked.

The permanent WoE rules will be:

  • One castle (which may eventually be increased, depending on activity).
  • One hour time limit.
  • Ownership and castle investment will be enabled.
  • Pets will be disabled within the castle.
  • The winning guild will get unrestricted access to the castle’s dungeon until the next WoE.
  • Economic and defensive investments will be available.
  • Dual clienting inside the castle will be disabled.

More details on the forums.
