New to Shining Moon? Or to Renewal?

Ragnarok Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). It was created by Gravity Corporation, which was released back in 2002. The story of Ragnarok Online was based on a manhwa called Ragnarok. The story starts up with a guy named Chaos, a warrior who lost his memories; and a rune knight.

Major updates changed RO's gameplay and content. Thus, naming those changes of in-game mechanics to:

  • Classic
  • First Job Classes were introduced (1-1) and until the first path of the Second Job Classes (2-1).
  • Pre-Renewal
  • Second path of the Second Job Classes (2-2) were released.
  • Transcendent Second Classes became viable. This requires the player to have a base level 99 and job level 50 to rebirth and start all over again as a
High Novice > High First Job Class > Transcendent Second Class. This also increases the job level cap (99/70), and unlocks a new array of skills.
  • Renewal
  • Third Job and Fourth Job Classes were released.
  • Computations were changed: (EXP, Stats, Monsters, Skills and etc).
  • Level cap changed to 250/50.
  • Latest and still being updated.

NOTE: There are lots of changes and features that are not mentioned above. This only serves as a brief differentiation of in-game mechanics.

Beginner Instance

After creating your character.

Your First Quest

In Shining Moon after creating a character, you will automatically be sent to your personal house where a non-playable character (NPC), awaits your arrival. His name is Oliver Balmer, and he will tell you the basics of Shining Moon RO.

Oliver Balmer

Oliver Balmer will help you set up your new character.

A menu will pop-up with choices of EXP rate. If you are new to the server, it is recommended to pick 100x/100x EXP.
If nothing shows up, you should type @refresh and talk to Oliver again to reset the dialogue.

Another menu will pop-up and ask if you want to be baby class. Baby class does not have the usual downside so pick what you like.
Learn more about Baby

After that, you can choose to see monsters the normal way or with more information. You can pick whichever option you like.

And that is it, you can finish the tutorial/introduction and you will be warped to the Main Office.

First Job Advancement

You will be sent to the Main Office after completing Oliver's introduction.

  • Talk to Job Changer Elaine to change your job.
  • If you can't change your job:
  • Try to check your skills tab by pressing alt + s, if all of the skill points are properly allocated.
  • Try to check your job level if it's maxed on your current state. If you are lacking a few levels refer to: Basic Leveling, and return to Job Changer Elaine once you get enough levels.

NOTE: You can easily access the Main Office by typing @go office.
