FAQ

A - They are the following:

  • Pet or Homunculus name changes: 100,000 zeny
  • Guild-name changes: 2,500,000 zeny
  • Guild-leader changes 5,000,000 zeny. These can only be done from Monday to Thursday, and must be requested in the forum. They will be announced publicly.
  • Weddings: 3,000,000 zeny. These can be held anywhere (does not have to be in a chapel). You can request them in-game (through @request, though we'll only receive the message if one of us is online at the time), or via one of our communication channels (preferably Telegram or Discord). If no GM can be found, you can reach the team through our issue tracker. Just create a new ticket explaining what you need done.

A - Yes, we do have a test server with the same mechanics as our main server, but it's mainly meant for the development team to test new additions and corrections. In exceptional cases, some players may be granted access to the test server to help us test custom quests and features. If you still want access to the test server, you can enroll at any time by creating a confidential ticket on GitLab requesting access. You must have filled the GitLab User ID field on your forum profile. You must also meet the following criteria:

  • You are and will remain a regular player here at Origins Online;
  • You have clean record (no past infractions);
  • You will provide a way for us to talk via instant messaging. The available choices are Telegram and Discord;
  • You agree to share every discovery with us, and not to anyone who's not part of the staff. This includes findings such as potentially abusable bugs, inconsistencies between our mechanics and official servers', descriptions that do not match the actual behavior etc.;
  • You agree to kill monsters that you spawn, so you don't overload the server;
  • You refrain from turning the test server into a social interaction spot (use the regular server for this!);
  • You own and control an account in an official server (kRO, iRO, jRO, bRO etc.). This allows us to validate our implementation with their mechanics.

A - The chapel in northwest Lutie allows same-sex marriage. It also accepts straight couples.

A - There is a bank quest implemented for players to complete in order to access the bank feature across character accounts. Wiki page for that quest: https://wiki.originsro.org/wiki/Bank_Quest

A - It is best to open an issue at our Support Requests gitlab for player harassment cases, suspicious character behaviors, or knowledge of ill-intentions. One may then also share the link to that issue with a GM, if it requires urgent attention. The Terms of Service are also an excellent resource available to players regarding such instances. Link to our Terms of Service: https://originsrpg.org/tos

A - Southwest Prontera, in a building or right outside it. Look for an icon that says "Tailor" on your minimap and click it to navigate there.

A - Well, you can help any way you can. If you'd like to help us advertise on RMS, specifically, just grab the mask from here, replace the sections between {curly brackets} and post it in the threads/topics that seem appropriate in RMS's server-seeking board.

A - Log in with your Master Account on the CP. On the side panel, under "Master Account", click on "My Characters". Now click on the name of the character you wish to delete. To find the number, search for "Char Deletion PIN" on that page.

A - You can purchase a ticket at the Civil Registry, within Kafra Headquarters, in northwest Aldebaran. Use that ticket as if it were any item, and go to the character-selection screen. From there, you should right-click the character you wish to rename, and click "Rename".

We have been running since October 2013, with only minor downtimes for maintenance. If you wish to measure your RTT, you can ping game.originsro.org.

A - We try to keep an average of 6 months between each episode being released. This is Origins Online, so don't expect us to follow exactly the same order that kRO or iRO released episodes in. Don't be surprised if content of two episodes is merged, or the content of one episode is split into two, or if the order itself is slightly altered, as we will do what seems more reasonable at that time, based on game balance considerations, and weighing in the players' reception and suggestions (e.g. WoE was delayed until Umbala/Niflheim, then merged with it). However, we are no longer releasing dates for when episodes are estimated to come out. Please do not insist.

A - Origins Online utilizes a Guest Account System wherein one player is able to access the character accounts of another via an authorized access. To do this, login to the CP and select 'Enable' under the 'Guest Access' tab to set your parameters. Please note that players using a Guest Account are still logged in via their own Master Account; therefore if you log a guest character alongside your own, it considers both characters to be under the same Master Account, and you will not get an EXP bonus if dual-clienting. Note also that directly accessing another player's master account is a violation of our Terms of Service and will result in a permanent account ban for both players. Staff are not liable for any items or zeny that go missing as a result of misusing the guest account feature. Do so at your own risk.

A - Some items were deemed not game-breaking. Most equipments and cards not pertaining to the current episode, however, have been removed. An excellent page on that subject is available here.

A - Some changes were deemed important to keep the game properly balanced. We decide which changes to keep not just by blindly following kRO/iRO (which have a different history, population, purpose, etc.), but by weighing each change on its own, and we decide whether we consider it a change for the sake of it, or an adjustment that would work better if made at the beginning instead of delaying it to a certain episode.

A - No, those were removed from official servers around mid-2008, before Renewal, and are thus seen as balance changes to pre-RE era. Some boss cards such as Owl Duke are still available from the OCA, though.

A - There is a very nice page in our wiki that explains ways in which we diverge from your usual servers. Thanks, Spark!

A - First of all, mind you that by doing this, you'll be missing the chance of helping a potential newcomer from getting the help he needs before joining the server. More than once have we had people that were still deciding whether to join appear on our IRC channel first, ask questions about this place, get answers from the players and decide to join. If you really want to stay out of IRC, here's what you can do: Under "Master Account", click "My Account" (or just click here). Now for each row in the second table there, click on the "Username" entry. This will take you to that particular game account.Click "Modify Preferences". Check "Don't join the #irc channel". Check this for all accounts you do not want to join #irc automatically. And remember: you can always use @join #irc to join it manually for that session (then either @part #irc or just relog if you want to leave it).

A - Whisper anything to NPC:AutoCommands ingame. That will open an NPC window which allows you to save said commands.

A - Use NPC:Autocommands (as already explained in this FAQ) to automatically do @join #channel when you log in. #channel should be replaced with a channel from the list available in our About page (in my case, that would be @join #pt).

A - If you are just wondering how much an item weighs, who drops it, how much HP each monster that does has, where said monster is and what other mobs will be there, I highly recommend using in-game commands (@ii, @whodrops, @mi, @whereis, @mapmobs). If you want a database to be accessed from your web browser, you can use the DB provided by our Control Panel.

A - We picked 5/5/5/3 because this is a standard for low rate servers, and pleases a large portion of our players. We have no plans to change that throughout the server's lifetime.

A - No. The way that command functions is very nasty, bypassing several delays by allowing anyone to teleport to the same spot at any time. Should you encounter any position bugs that you normally could make go away with @refresh, please report them individually, and we will try our best to fix them, as we have in the past. However, implementing a command that opens for several exploits is out of question

A - We understand the convinience of this feature, but we also see it as a very custom feature of some servers, that affect how many Fly Wings a Priest or someone with Creamy Card normally carries. We believe that the time that it takes to teleport using this skill is intentionally higher, so that it's more a way to get around quickly and less of a an emergency button.

A - While we aim to offer an experience similar to that of official servers, minus the infamous Kafra Shop, there is a status point refunding NPC available for use with an associated fee for correcting build mistakes or future changes or item implementations. Wiki page for that NPC: https://wiki.originsro.org/wiki/Stat_Point_Refunder

A - Rebirth is implemented in the standard fashion. Don't expect one job to be able to rebirth into an unrelated class. A hunter cannot become a Minstrel/Clown, etc. However, once transcended, a character may re-rebirth to a 1/1 high novice if the players wishes to change their build.

A - We will continue to provide new content. We have a very special project in mind already, and a good portion of it is done. We will also attempt to implement RE maps and mobs without having to adapt our mechanics, similar to what jRO did.

A - For the most timely results, your questions are best directed to the in-game #support channel or the discord server as a staff member may not always be available. Alternatively, the forum is also an available area for such requests. If one is available, or it is a more urgent issue, you should reach out to that GM directly in a DM or via the @request system in-game for the best response.
