The classic Ragnarok Online has returned to Malaysia and Singapore since last November, and now we are finally getting the 2-2 classes! The new update that brings a second advancement option from the 1-1 classes will be arriving on 14 March (Wednesday), so mark down the date!
With the unique skills and abilities of the new classes, you can expect more fun during both PvP and PvE battles especially in War of Emperium.
Here are the details of the new classes:
Swordsman → Crusader
Crusaders are a fine blend of physical strength and faith-driven magic prowess, making them a versatile class. They are capable of melee combat with a spear or a sword and shield, of playing a supportive role in parties with beneficial magic skills, and of sacrificing their health to wield powerful holy magic. They can be built more like a mage than a warrior, or a classic favorite is to play the crusader like a tank. What makes this class so popular is the versatility, it’s natural aim towards fighting the undead, and its centralization around having high VIT and defense.
Magician → Sage
Sages are a PvP-oriented class with the role of caster/anti-Mage. They do not have the offensive abilities of a Wizard, but are a slightly buffed version of Mage with their Free Casting. Sages shine in their defensive abilities, with many builds centered around Magnetic Earth. Dispel is also a popular and sought-after spell which is useful for removing buffs from the enemy. Many of their skills can only realistically be used in PvP, making PvE quite difficult, particularly for VIT/DEX builds that have difficulty solo leveling.
Merchant → Alchemist
The Alchemist is a class which optimizes Potion Creation and Homunculus, as well as various other potion-related skills. They work for the benefit of their friends by providing different buffs during battle, and also capable of striking terror into the hearts of their foes at the same time.
Thief → Rogue
Rogues are a versatile class that lacks in PvE skills but excelling in PvP and WoE. With their skills, Rogues can render most classes useless in a PvP environment. With Gank, a Rogue can obtain double the loot another class could gather in the same amount of time. Rogues can wield bows, daggers, or swords and can copy a variety of player skills to help them level. Their high dodge, fast attacks, and stealthy nature make them a force to be reckoned with in a PvE dungeon.
Acolyte → Monk
Monks are a versatile class that can deal damage in several ways unique to themselves. They are most known for the powerful Guillotine Fist skill, which has used in MVP, PVP and WoE scenarios. Most builds are focused on maximizing damage via skills such as Occult Impaction and their Combo abilities. Specialized Monk builds can be very efficient for both MVP and WoE purposes.
Male Archer → Bard
The voice of a Bard is laden with magical harmonies, singing hymns that invoke the ancient Gods of Asgard to instill fear in the hearts of his enemies and inspire his comrades to victory with songs of eternal youth and glorious charges. Specialized in supporting party members, Bards are central in all defensive strategies during WoE.
Bards are also capable of dealing good quantities of damage, one of their main advantages over Hunters is their immense SP pool which allows them to continually use Double Strafe instead of normal attacks, ensuring a very nice damage output. It would be best to combine both the skills of Bard and Dancer in the same party for maximum effect.
Female Archer → Dancer
Dancers are seductresses who gain the power to influence the minds of allies and enemies alike. Specialized in disrupting groups of enemies, it is said that time slows down when a Dancer starts to move her hips to the sound of some mysterious tune; that those watching may lose control of their bodies and find their magic reserves either greatly improved or gone altogether.
Similar to Bards, Dancers are capable of dealing good quantities of damage and it would be best to combine both the skills of Bard and Dancer in the same party for maximum effect.
Other than the new 2-2 advancement classes, there will also be more content update planned for Ragnarok Online MYSG this year. Stay tuned to their official website and Facebook page so you won’t miss out any updates or announcements!
