Intro to RoM

From Rise Of Midgard
Jump to: navigation, search

This guide is meant to aid in familiarizing yourself with our server. We've made a lot of changes, some big and some small, so check them out!

Server Features


The server is set to Pre-Renewal Episode 13.3. There are no I4001.gif Flame Skull Cards, I5808.gif Dark Bacilium, I2202.gif Sunglasses[1], or BG items.


While we have Hunting Missions for gaining EXP and some rewards, we also have Repeatable EXP Quests. Homunculus kills WILL count for Monster Hunting Repeatables. However, Sharp Leaf and Antelope Horn Item Turn-In quests are capped to Level 80 instead of 86.

For a full list of custom quests we offer, see the Quests page.

Account-Based Zeny

Zeny is shared between all characters under a single Game Account. Note that this is only per Game Account; if you have multiple Game Accounts under the same Master Account, they will each have their own zeny amounts.


This RoM-exclusive feature allows you to spam skills at the same speed as everyone else, regardless of your ping. Read more about this feature here.

Chat Channels

Rise of Midgard has an opt-in #main channel (toggled via @logincmds), #party channel and #trade channel. To type in one of them, put the channel name in the PM box, and say your message.

The #party channel also displays automatic messages based on party recruitment done with /recruit. To see all parties recruiting from this system, you can open the Booking window with /booking. There is also an icon for this labeled "Booking" below the Basic Information window.

Messages sent to the #party channel by way of the recruitment system will be seen by everyone unless they have turned off @partymessages.
You can use @logincmds to disable @partymessages/@join #party on login.
Chat channels can be filtered. You can find the chat filters by clicking the circle icon (2nd icon from the left) at the top right of your chat box. The channel filter is at the very bottom.

Custom NPCs

We have a handful of custom NPCs!
Our Kafra have teleports available to all towns for free, some dungeons (some for free, and others for a zeny fee), party maps and Guild Dungeon warps.
Additionally, each town warp has a Tool Dealer, Healer, DB Room Manager, PvP Warper, WoE Info, and a Bossnia Guard.

A more comprehensive list of NPCs can be found on the Custom NPCs page.

Master Storage

You can use this storage to share items across all accounts linked to your Master Account! You can enable this for characters by talking to a Kafra and selecting Check Other Information. You can also put account-bound items in your Master Storage, with the exception of usable freebies like I40072.gif Field Manuals.

Guild Storage

Every guild has access to a Guild Storage! No castle required, available via Kafra.

Guild Security

The Guild Engineer in the Rising Adventurers Group offers you various Guild security options: He'll let you change Guild Leader, reset Guild Skills, and set a password for your Guild Storage.
Additionally, you can bind items to your guild through him. Any items that are bound through this feature can be immediately returned to Guild Storage if you ask him to do so. This makes it very easy to lend gear to guild members without fear of it being stolen.

Check out the Guild System page for more details regarding Guilds and Guild Security.

Offline Vending

If you close your client or log out while vending, you will automatically use @autotrade - your shop will remain online.

Alchemist Brewing Changes

We have completely removed the Twilight Alchemy skills and replaced them with our own versions: Mass Pharmacy and Maximum Pharmacy.
Mass Pharmacy works just like Pharmacy, but will attempt to brew 200 of the item you select. Maximum Pharmacy is similar, but will attempt to brew the item you select as many times as possible.
These skills will check your storage for ingredients, and all items produced are deposited into your storage.

Full details can be found on the Alchemist Brewing page.

Dungeon Access

You can entirely skip the quests for certain dungeons by using some zeny through the Dungeon Access NPC.
Both normally completing the quest and buying access will allow access to all characters on the same Game Account.

Endless Tower & Endless Cellar Weekly Race

Each week, the fastest party to complete Endless Tower or Endless Cellar will get 5 I40029.gif Ancient Silver Coins, 5 I40030.gif Midgard Coins and 20 I40004.gif Event Coupons as a team reward! You can read more about each race on the corresponding Instance page.

GvG Skill Changes

You can cast Mind Breaker and Provoke on allies on GvG maps. However, Provoke does not increase Asura Strike damage.
Sharpshooting can also be cast on allies as a bridge to hit enemy players, without damaging the allied target.

To view all changes, please see the Custom Changes page.

High-End MVP Changes

Bio3, Ifrit, Valk, and Satan Morroc MVPs will not teleport on Rude Attack. Instead, they will go invulnerable. When they go invulnerable or idle, they heal to full HP and the damage log is reset.
Every MVP, except for Lord of Death, Bio Laboratory 3 MVPs, and quest MVPs, will spawn a Tombstone when they die.
Eske cannot be used on high-end MVPs.

Hidden Enchant Changes

The Hidden Enchant NPC will enchant any armor in the game except Valkyrian Armor. Refinement and cards are kept on success. It costs 800,000z per enchant.

Outcome Chances:

  • +1 Stat: 42%
  • +2 Stat: 36%
  • +3 Stat: 12%
  • Failure: 10%

Job Changing

While we do have a Job Changer, you will be rewarded for first-time completions of job quests. Doing the first job change quest grants you 20,000z and a I7803.gif 30 min +200% EXP Beginner's Manual (this item only works if you're under level 40); doing the second job change quest grants you 100,000z.
The Job Changer does not function past your second job. You will have to do the Rebirth Quest and follow-up using the official quests.
The Rebirth Quest has been changed to allow you to carry any amount of zeny, and up to 500 weight in items. Remember to use all your skill points and to remove your peco, falcon or cart.
High First Class is done at the normal First Job Quest NPC, and Transcendent Second Class is done at one of the NPCs in the Valkyrie map.
If you need Quest Skills after Rebirth, there is an NPC in the Valkyrie map that will give them to you.

Homunculus Autoloot

Homunculus do not autoloot.

Guild Antagonist

If two guilds agree to set each other as "Antagonist," the two guilds can engage each other (PvP) everywhere except towns! More details can be found here.

Improved Ranking System

Rankings for Alchemist, Blacksmith and TaeKwon classes are not limited to the Top 10. You can be ranked as long as you are either in the Top 10 or have the following amount of points:

  • Alchemist: 50,000 points
  • Blacksmith: 1,000 points
  • TaeKwon: 100 points

Improved Kill-Stealing Prevention

We have an improved version of the @noks command, which we called @nogriefing (@nogf). To see the full details on how it works, see this page.

Testing Area

You can test your damage and DPS by hitting the Test Dummies at /navi prontera 217/75. You can even change the Test Dummy's race, size, element, element level, DEF and MDEF, as well as easily change it's stats to any existing monster's stats (by using their Mob ID - you can obtain that from using the @mobinfo/@mi command).

You can also practice repairing Guardian Stones and Barricades in this area.

Client Features

Master Accounts

When you register an account for Rise of Midgard, this will make both your Master Account and a single Game Account.
Logging into the Control Panel requires your Master Account email and password. It is highly recommended that you only make one Master Account. You can create additional Game Accounts at the top of the Control Panel page when logged in.

Your Master Account will keep your Game Accounts easily organized, allow you to transfer Cash Points between all of your Game Accounts, store items in a shared Master Storage, and potentially more in the future!

Client Customization

We have a special configuration file that allows for some cool client customization options.
Once you've installed the game and fully patched, you'll find a file called rise.cfg in your installation folder.
To get started, open the file with Notepad or your favorite text editor.
You can change the in-game Font Type and Font Size, disable custom dye colors, enable Frostdelays, and enable certain effects to be shown even when you use /effect!

For the most part, this file is self-explanatory. Close your client and then open the file in Notepad. If a feature has a ; in front of it, remove it to enable the feature. Otherwise, swap 0s and 1s to disable or enable features. Make sure to save, and then you can re-open your client!

This is for more advanced players. If you're new to Ragnarok or don't want to get very technical, you may not want to use this.

SimpleROHook is very similar to RCX, but with less features. It's integrated with the RoM client, and you change its settings using in-game commands. Its function includes: changing cell colors for skills, view dead cells, show ranges around your character, and more.
