What is Ragnarok Online?
Ragnarok Online is divided into a series of maps on two major continents, each of which has its own terrain and native monsters, though many monsters are present in multiple regions. Transportation between maps requires loading the new map and monsters are unable to travel from one map to another unless directly associated with the player such as a pet, mount, or hireling.
There are three major nations in Ragnarok Online, the first of which and where all players start is the kingdom of Rune Midgard. The Schwaltzvalt Republic, an industrialized neighbor to the North, and Arunafeltz, a religious nation.
Areas from Norse mythology are included, such as Niflheim, the land of the dead, and Valhalla, where players can become Transcendent Classes.

I have been playing Ragnarok Online since 2002 and played on 4 servers namely: iRO chaos, pRO Chaos, pRO Thor/Valhalla and am currently playing on iRO classic Loki. I used to write guides for my blog “Dee’s RO Journal” in the past and feel that I am very knowledgeable about the game. I have experience in both Renewal and Pre-Renewal servers playing casually or competitively and can help with either. If you are new to Ragnarok Online or what we call “RO” here are a few class guides to get you started!
Disclaimer: These guides are for Pre-Renewal / Classic Ragnarok Online in mind(renewal guides soon!). It is still usable for Renewal Ragnarok Online but take note that the stat calculations and bonuses are a bit different from renewal.
