Ragnarok Launches the Ninja Second Class
2/6/2013
RAGNAROK Launches the Ninja Second Class
 Oboro and Kagerou make their debut!
Buena Park, California – February 6, 2013 –Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), has launched the powerful second class evolution for the Ninja on  5th February, 2013! After this update on Renewal, Ninjas can level beyond 99, giving them a massive boost in power! Find out more about the cunning and elusive Kagerou and Oboro here:  http://www.playragnarok.com/news/updatedetail.aspx?id=224&p=1.


Many ages ago, there was a powerful clan of shadow warriors who served the Lord of Amatsu. Content to be the right hand to the feudal warlord, they were known as the Ninja-silent assassins who excelled in weapon and magical arts.
In time, the Lord of Amatsu grew to mistrust their growing power and influence, and they were forced to retreat to the shadows they held so dear. These Ninja passed into the realm of legend, a fairy tale told to frighten small children.
Just recently the descendants of the original Ninja have returned to assist in the battle against the forces of evil in Rune Midgards, and have been gathering recruits to pass on their ancient techniques.
Until now, there have been no men or women strong enough in body and spirit to learn the most secret Ninja arts, those developed by the founding members of the clan so long ago.
That is about to change. Beginning now, ninjas at base level 99 and job level 70 will be able to develop themselves into advanced Kagerou and Oboro class characters, super-powered Ninjas with a yen…for battle!

A descendant of the original Ninja clan has returned to assist in the battle against the forces of evil in Rune Midgard, and have been gathering recruits to pass on their ancient techniques.

“The ninjas have long been a favorite class to many, but they were limited in power due to their level restrictions, “says Ragnarok Lead Producer, Jason Heimdallr Koerperich. “The Male Kagerou and Female Oboro classes are much stronger than Ninjas; whether you built your Ninja around magic or hand-to-hand combat you’ll find skills to complement your build!”
To prepare for the making the shadow leap to a Kagerou or Oboro, make sure to check out this animated introduction video:

Ragnarok: Lighthalzen, The Corporate City - State
1/16/2013
LIGHTHALZEN, THE CORPORATE CITY - STATE

The Secretive Town of Lighthalzen Has Arrived On Classic!

Buena Park, California – January 15, 2013 – The Rekenber Corporation welcomes you to Lighthalzen! Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), is proud to announce this major town update on Classic. A large and popular town when it was originally introduced on International Ragnarok Online, it has made its way onto the new Pre-Renewal Classic server!  In addition to the quests that will be available, this also unlocks the homunculus companion monsters for Alchemist class characters and the mysterious Somatology Laboratory dungeon below Lighthalzen.

Airship routes to the city-state of Lighthalzen have opened up and adventurers from around Rune Midgard have journeyed over long distances to discover what this seemingly peaceful town has to offer. Established by the powerful Rekenber Corporation, the city-state of Lighthalzen grew from a simple mountain village to a prosperous metropolis. Though they have brought great wealth to the town, visitors whisper of dark experiments taking place behind the clean façade of the Rekenber headquarters. Players will have their hands full if they attempt to unravel the mystery…

This update allows for Alchemists to create Homunculi, user-programmable monsters that will fight on the side of their creators. There are four different kinds of homunculi, each with their own special skills and specialty. These helpful new creatures are much more than pets.

“With the highly requested Lighthalzen expansion on Classic we are giving the opportunity for players to experience more high level content “says iRO lead producer Jason Heimdallr Koerperich. “Quests, Homunculi and our Jump Start event make this a big content update for Classic!”

The Jump Start event is a two week event designed to help level new characters up to level 50. Ragnarok can be a very challenging game at the beginning, especially for its unique support class characters. This event will help iRO fans get over the difficult early-game “hump” by reducing the amount of EXP required to level-up character and job levels from 1-50 by half!  You can check up on news at the Ragnarok Online Official Facebook and get more info on the leveling event here: on the Playragnarok site!

The level cap will bring 7 more skill points for players to further their classes. Both the Raid and the Level increase are set to launch on January 15th, 2013!

This update will contain an all new area where players will face off against three old gods from the distant past.
------------------------
Deep beneath the Secret Temple lays a dormant power hidden for ages. Loose scripts have told of god-like beings ruling for a moment in time during the Dark Ages.
To appease these god-like beings, flesh from across Ethergia was given to them to gratify their hunger. Their hunger for flesh was small at first, a couple virgins every year; then it these being’s hunger began to rise. From years to months, months to weeks, to weeks to days, and from days to hours. The sacrifices began to take a toll in the population of Ethergia.
The Holy Xenon Empire’s sub-division, “Filias sanctae Matris”, a dedicated group of Battle-Maiden decided to end this madness. Posed as the next group of sacrifices, they lured the three beings into an Altar of Sacrifice and had the door sealed from the outside, sacrificing themselves for Ethergia.
This seal was to be casted once and never to be revealed again. Knowledge of the secret altar was stricken from all records and burned.
The three god-like beings were to be forever forgotten… that is until foolish explorative Temperions gained access to it.
-------------------------
“This update will be one of the first of many that will come in this year. 2012 has been a great year with us, especially with Facebook. Players all over the world can now access to one of the bloodiest MMO’s out there and we’re thrilled to have them!” said Denny Kwon, Producer for Requiem at Gravity Interactive US Office. “The Altar of Sacrifice update will contain an all new area where players will face off with lots of customization, all new Raids, and tons of new weapons and items for our players to discover, compound and show off!

The Altar of Sacrifice” will include: new Nightmare Accessories sets and Raid items, a new Raid zone, 5 more levels, and 7 new skill points. Players can enjoy The Altar of Sacrifice update for free at Requiem Official Site or http://www.facebook.com/playrequiem to join Requiem Facebook community!

Ragnarok: A Single Prayer To The Heavens Brings Hope
12/5/2012
A SINGLE PRAYER TO THE HEAVENS BRINGS HOPE

Will You Be Brave Enough To Join An Unique Experience?!

Buena Park, California – December 5, 2012 - A war with the demons has been raging onward its coming release of Ragnarok’s latest expansion, “Ragnarok: A Prayer to the Heavens” update. It has been discovered in Rune Midgard it becoming more and more necessary to transcend these limitations! Starting on November 29, 2012, high level players can begin delving into the secrets of how mankind can survive the Ragnarok; is it by hard work and guts alone, or is a heavenly assistance the only way to transcend human limitations?  You can read more about this update, and what it changes at, http://www.playragnarok.com/news/eventdetail.aspx?id=232&p=1.

For players who enjoyed the original game mechanics and story flavor of Ragnarok Online, Gravity has launched its Classic Server in June. As the months passed, the server had more regions and features added, this newest “Prayer to the Heavens” update brings the Transcendent classes to the game.  Transcendent classes are evolved, more powerful classes for the current 13 2nd classes.  The Transcendent classes step up the power level of the game for Player vs Player and the high level game content that is soon to come on the Classic Server.

Mankind has always sought to escape the limits of mortal strength and become something more. The Ragnarok is upon us once again, and transcending those limits is the only hope for humanity to survive. A brilliant scientist in the Schwartzvald Republic believes that he possesses the answer, and need players help to construct the device that will make that possible. Adventurers level 98 and above can participate in a multi-part quest to discover the secret for themselves.  

“’The Prayer to the Heavens’ quest is our unique way to bring the Transcendent classes to the Classic server.  Transcending is a huge upgrade to our users and the world’s challenges we can present to them.  We wanted to make the transcending a fresh and fun experience for them!” says Jason Heimdallr Koerperich, Ragnarok Online Producer at Gravity Interactive. “There will be twists and turns in this update, but it will be a great time for in-game parties and soloists alike!”

An unassuming Sign post on the Airships top deck ask for powerful heroes to apply for a dangerous quest, level 98 and higher heroes will suffice. You will seek out Scientist Toyotino in the Juno Hall of Learning, and discover for yourself if you have what it takes to transcend your limitations and save the world for the Ragnarok.

This World Event is something new to show how game changing Transcendent classes are for players and the story.  This update comes in time for the Holidays as a nice gift to the Ragnarok Fans that have enjoyed iRO during its 10 year history since Closed Beta.  Follow up on news at the Ragnarok Online Official Facebook and Join the game for Free!
