Starter Guide (for beginners)

Post by GM Oreki »

Starter Guide

This guide is created not only for players new to MindRO but for players new to Ragnarok Online as well, so feel free to skip parts as you like.

Getting Started on MindRO

When entering MindRO for the first time, you will find yourself here in the main town:

Image

The first thing you need to do is to level up to the max level but you can walk around and explore the surroundings a little bit first if you want.

Whenever you're ready let's talk to the Healer NPC to get buffs:

Image

You can see your active buffs and their details on the right side here:

Image

After taking our buffs, i'm also going to open my inventory by clicking here:

Image

and I'm going to double click on this starting item to use it

Image

This item will triple all the experience points we receive from killing monsters for 30 minutes

Image

Now let's type our first command: @warp prt_fild08
You can just type it on the chat box like this and hit enter:

Image

This command moves you to the map you specify.
You can see the name of your current map by typing /where

Image

We could have also typed @warp prt_fild08 192 333 if we wanted to move to this exact position, but we didn't care about the exact position so we didn't need to type the x and y coordinates.

Now that we are on this map, let's find and kill our first monster by clicking on it:

Image

After successfully killing our first monster, we gained a few levels.
The reason why we leveled up several levels from killing one weak monster is because our server has 150x exp rates, so every monster we kill gives us 150x the normal exp points, plus we used that item that triples the exp points so we got even more :D

We only needed to kill one monster for now, so let's go back to town by typing @load like this:

Image

We could have also typed @go 0
The difference is that @load takes you back to your save point while @go 0 takes you to the town number you specify, 0 is the number for the main town.

Type @allskill to activate all skills for your class. We will talk about skills in a bit )

Image

Talk to the Job Master NPC to upgrade your class. I'm going to choose an archer. If you're new to Ragnarok Online you can do the same so you can follow the guide with me )

Image

and btw the requirements for upgrading your class are:
Novice -> First Class: Requires Job Level 10 (we got that when we killed that weak monster)
First Class -> Second Class: Requires Job Level 40
Second Class -> High Novice: Requires Base Level 99 and Job Level 50
High Novice -> High First Class: Requires Job Level 10
High First Class -> Transcendent Class: Requires Job Level 40

Transcendent Class is the last class and the max levels on Transcendent Classes are 99 for the Base level and 70 for the Job level.

The main difference between Base Level and Job Level is that the Base Level gives you stat points which we we will see in a bit, while the Job Level gives you skill points. Skill points are unnecessary in our server because we have the @allskill command which activates all skills available for your class regardless of how many skill points you have.

In this image, my Base Level is 25 and my Job Level is 10. The Exp % refers to how much exp we gained of the exp needed to level up to the next level:

Image

Now that I am an archer:

Image

I'm going to open my inventory by clicking here:

Image

I'm going to click on the Eqp tab which stands for Equipments and I'm going to double click on my bow (an other starting item) to have it equipped:

Image

Inventory tabs are:
Con: Consummable
Eqp: Equipmenets
Etc: Et cetera
Fav: Favourites

I'm going to open my equipped items window:

Image

I will click on the Etc tab on my inventory and I will click and drag my arrow to my equipped items window:

Image

To have it like this:

Image

Now I have both my bow and arrow equipped.

Note that arrows and all ammunition are unlimited in our server, you only need to have 1 equipped )

Let's type @allskill to activate all skills available again now that we have upgraded our class:

Image

I will open my skills window by clicking here:

Image

I will click on F12 on my keyboard to open the keyboard shortcuts:

Image

Keyboard shortcuts by default are F1 to F9. We can configure more shortcuts by clicking on Esc, then clicking on BM/Shortcut Settings, but we don't need to do that for now.

I'm going to drag Double Strafe skill to to the first shortcut:

Image

So now I can use the skill by clicking on F1 on my keyboard )

I will open my status window to use the stats I got when I leveled up by clicking here:

Image

and I will put them all on Dex:

Image

When you are using a bow your damage is affected by your Dex stat point.
For archer classes, the most effective stat build is max Dex for higher attack damage and max Agi for higher attack speed and higher evasion of physical attacks.

Now let's type: @warp pay_dun00
To teleport to this map with slightly stronger monsters since the higher our level the stronger the monsters we need to kill to level up faster.

Click on F1 to target monsters and cast your skill like this:

Image

As you level up you gain more levels and therefore more stat points, you can use them immediately to become stronger. Remember the stats we want to increase on this class are Agi and Dex.

After reaching job level 40 let's go again to the Job Master NPC to upgrade our class.
This time let's upgrade to Hunter because afterwards we can upgrade to Sniper and Sniper is one of the best classes to hunt normal monsters which we will need to do a lot when we are doing quests.

Image

Our goal now is to reach Base Level 99 and Job Level 50, but before starting, a useful thing to know is the commands shortcut. You can open the shortcut list by clicking on ALT+M at the same time:

Image

On the image above, I can do the command @jump by clicking on ALT+1
or @warp orcsdun02 by clicking on ALT+2
and so on...

You can modify these shortcuts as you like, and btw:
@jump teleports us to a random place in the current map so it's useful to look for monsters when hunting
@storage opens the storage where you can store items and share them between characters on the same account
@jumpback teleports you back to previous location before using @jump. It's useful when you teleport quickly by mistake and want to go back

An other important thing is to remember that you have many other skills and you should learn about them all little by little especially the self buff skills because they can boost your damage greatly.

The next map we can level up on now is @warp orcsdun02
Try leveling up to 99/50 on your own now :D

Please do that first before continuing this guide (unless you're just reading and still haven't done anything, then it's fine :lol:)

After reaching level 99/50, the next step is upgrading our class to High Novice.

Upgrading to High Novice is a little bit confusing because we become weak again like if we have just started and we need to repeat all the steps above again which is weird, but on the bright side our class will be stronger this time and will have more stat points and skills. This is why it's called a Transcendent Class because you have transcended your previous self by starting all over again. Luckily our server has 150x exp rate and we have those nice Battle Manual x3 items that triple our exp points, so this does not take much time :D

I've already repeated the leveling up steps and became a Sniper and hopefully you will now too.

Now I talked to this NPC and I got a Falcon pet:

Image

If your class can have a battle pet or a mount or a cart, this is the NPC where to get it.

When reaching level 80+ as a Transcendent Class, it's faster to level up at @warp in_sphinx4 by finding the monster Anubis with @jump and killing it. You just have to be fast on your attacks using Double Strafe because it is a tough monster to kill. Don't forget to use your self buff skills to boost your damage.

Equipments

In this section we're going to learn about equipments and cards.

Now that we reached the max class, it's time to find some decent equipments )

Finding equipment is easy because our server has high drop rates. Our drop rate is 100% for everything except for MVP cards which have 2.5% drop rate.
