All discussions about the Ragnarok Renewal System, the Attempted rebalancing by Gravity of Ragnarok online, Go here.

A Informative Thread I googled:

- 6 levels increases your status DEF by 1.
- 6 levels increases your status MDEF by 1.

* With bows, guns, musical instruments and whips, the increase in physical attack power from Dex and Str are swapped, making Dex the primary damage stat.

Other Stats

Physical Attack Power (ATK)
- Shown in the status window as "status attack power + equipment attack power".
- Attack power gained by your own stats affect status attack power, and your weapon affects equipment attack power.
- Cards and equipment that affect or increase your attack power only affect your equipment attack power.

Magical Attack Power (MATK)
- Shown in the status window as "status magic attack power + equipment magic attack power".
- Magic attack power gained by your own stats affect status magic attack power, and your weapon affects equipment magic attack power.
- All weapons now have a unique magic attack stat which directly affects your equipment magic attack power when equipped.
- Cards and equipment that affect or increase your magic attack power only affect your equipment magic attack power.

Physical Defense (DEF)
- Shown in the status window as "Status defense + Equipment defense".
- Status defense is gained by your own stats, and equipment defense is increased by your current equipped gears and their refine rate.
- Physical defense directly reduces a targets attack power against you. Equipment defense however reduces damage more than your status defense.
- The difference in level between you and the opponent affect how effective your defense is at reducing damage.

Magical Defense (MDEF)
- Shown in the status window as "Status magic defense + Equipment magic defense".
- Status magic defense is gained via your stats, and equipment magic defense is increased by your current equipment and cards.
- Magical defense directly reduces a targets magic attack power against you. The reduction from equipment magic defense makes up a higher % of the total reduction.
- The difference in level between you and the opponent affect how effective your defense is at reducing damage.

Attack Speed (ASPD)
- Attack speed is displayed as a numerical value, which represents an attacking speed unchanged from before the renewal patch. As your approach 200 attack speed, your attacks become increasingly fast (max aspd is 190, representing 5 attacks a second).
- Attack speed varies from job to job, and is effected by the class of weapon equipped, your Level, AGI and DEX stats, and reduced when equipping a shield.
- Stats and and equipment that affect ASPD modify it by a direct amount instead of by a %. For example, Two-Hand Quicken will give you a flat +5 aspd.
- Equipping a shield reduces your ASPD by approximately 5.

Accuracy (HIT)
- Shown in the status window as "Status HIT + Equipment HIT bonus".
- The base status HIT is 175, and is increased by your level, Dex and Luk.
- Your status hit and equipment hit affect your final hit rate equally.

Evasion (FLEE)
- Shown in the status window as "Status FLEE + Equipment FLEE bonus".
- The base status FLEE is 100, and increased by your level, Agi, and Luk.
- Your status flee and equipment flee affect your final dodge rate equally.

Final Accuracy
- The ability to hit or dodge a target physically is based on a ratio of the HIT and FLEE between you and the target.
- As your HIT raises above the targets FLEE, it becomes increasingly difficult to dodge. The opposite is true, if the opponent has higher FLEE than you have HIT, you will have difficulty in landing a hit.
- While the base numbers for HIT and FLEE have changed, the actual formula has not changed substantially.

Casting Time
- Cast time of all skills is now composed of two parts, a fixed cast time and a variable cast time.
- Fixed cast time cannot be reduced by any means, and represents the fastest a skill can possibly be cast.
- The fixed casting portion of all skills is set to 20% of the skills total casting time. Other than skills with a fixed un-reducible cast time, there are no exceptions to the ratio of 20%/80% fixed/variable cast time.
- Variable cast time can be decreased via your DEX and INT stats, as well as equipment and skills such as Suffragium and Magic strings.
- The cast time of skills at this time during testing have not changed (with the exception of cold bolt/fire bolt/lightning bolt).

Critical Chance (Crit)
- Your critical rate is calculated the same as before, and represents a % chance to land a critical hit, affected by your LUK and current equipment.
- Your critical rate is reduced by the LUK of the target, and reduced if the target is a higher level than you.
- Katar type weapons double the effect of the crit stat.

Perfect Dodge (pDodge)
- Perfect Dodge is no longer shown within the status window.
- However pDodge works the same as before, perfect dodge is a direct % chance to evade a normal (non skill) physical attack.
- Perfect Dodge is increased with higher luck and specific equipment.

Perfect Hit (pHit)
- Perfect Hit is not displayed within the client window.
- pHit is a direct % chance to hit the target, regardless of your hit and evasion rates.
- Perfect Hit can only be gained via special equipment.

Character Leveling

Increased Weighting on Level Difference
- Players are rewarded for fighting monsters of their own level, as well as those slightly harder.
- When in combat a player or monster that is higher level receives a bonus to their hit rate, critical rate and damage, and the lower level one faces a penalty to their evasion, and physical and magical defense. The penalties increase as the level difference widens.
- If you are lower level than the monster you are killing, you receive a bonus to your experience for your kills (+1% per level difference, with +10% bonus at 5 levels).
- A player or monster being hit by a lower level target additionally receives a bonus to their defense values.
- If you are 5 or more levels below a monster, you begin to receive a 30% penalty to your damage, hit, and evasion rates.
- If you are 10 or more levels below a monster, you will receive a 60% penalty to your damage, hit and evasion rates.
- As the gap in level widens, you'll become less and less likely to be able to deal any real damage to the target monster.

- If you are between 5-8 levels above a monster, you will receive a penalty to experience gained from that monster.
- At 5 levels above the target monster, you will incur a 50% penalty to the experience gained by killing it. Each additional level reduces the experience gained by an additional 10%, capping at an 80% reduction of the total experience.

- The level penalties go both ways, so a low level monster attacking you will also receive a penalty to their damage, hit, and evasion, and you will receive a bonus to your defense.

Experience Gain
- The experience table has been drastically changed.
- Because of wide-scale modifications to monster levels, monster experience, and the weighting of your own level, the amount of base experience required to level up has dropped drastically.
- Job level requirements are balanced differently. You are likely to hit job 50 on your first job around level 50, and job 50 on your second job near level 85-90.

Experience Chart
- The following is the current known experience requirement for non-transcendent characters, along with some samples of how much experience optimal monsters give at that level.

level 1 - 550 exp
level 3 - 1500 exp
level 4 - 2200 exp (porings worth 30 exp)
level 5 - 3200 exp (fabres worth 60 exp)
level 7 - 4200 exp (hornets worth 90 exp)
level 9 - 5000 exp (hornets worth 80 exp)
level 10 - 5500 exp
level 11 - 6000 exp (rockers worth 114 exp)
level 12 - 6100 exp
level 13 - 6350 exp
level 15 - 7350 exp
level 17 - 8400 exp
level 23 - 12000 exp
level 34 - 23000 exp (coco worth 312 exp)
level 35 - 24000 exp
level 36 - 26000 exp
level 37 - 27500 exp
level 38 - 29000 exp (orc ladys worth 445 exp)
level 49 - 50500 exp (orc zombies worth 470 exp)
level 63 - 77000 exp
level 65 - 84000 exp
level 68 - 95000 exp (argiope worth 1053 exp)
level 71 - 140000 exp
level 86 - 600000 exp (soliders worth 1775 exp)
level 87 - 680000 exp
level 98 - 4000000 exp

- Transcend characters require exactly twice the experience (base and job) as non-transcend characters.

Monster Arrangement and Re-leveling
- The spawn of most monsters across the game world have been widely changed.
- Areas are changed so that maps generally group monsters of similar level together.
- To accommodate this, the stats, skills, and level of most monsters in game have been drastically altered.
- The adjustment in zones is done in such a way that players should always have a place to level their class within their level range.
- Some zones have been adjusted to be high end, with monster levels appearing above 100.

- Current known monster sense information can be found here.
- A map of all fields, and their respective levels are shown at the end of this post.
- A map of most in game dungeons and the levels can be found here.

be a problem to implement on med/high rate servers with max levels of 255-500 though, with that scaled-down exp for low-level mobs change.

it becomes a ground AoE and doesn't split up damage.

challenging? think impossible on loki...

420 STR gets converted from something like 2100 atk to 504 attack

300 INT goes from 3900 matk to 450

now are those numbers something you really want to be fighting with, when your opponents have nearly 1000 times that in HP?

I don't think many people are up to the challenge of completely relearning the balance of the game.
It's just not worth the effort anymore.

The game is so old, if I wanted something really challenging I'd play another game (with better graphics).

Just leave Loki be.

this is just plainly impossible to be implemented on LOKI T_T

one of the main reasons RO had this renewal system implemented is to destroy Mid and high rate which most RO private servers are

shaking things up on a ground that mid rate and high rate servers cannot cope up with T_T

Midrate will not function with these things. It'd make things insanely stupid. We're good so far as we are so let's continue our improvements as we have been. No need to revamp the entire server like that and try to re-start from scratch.

Will our Low Rate Servers implement this?

Also, I WOULD like to see a few things here changed. It would be nice if Rods actually gave to MATK instead of ATK. I mean, what's the point of most Wizards having ATK on their Rods?

But yes, this entire thing is not only a way to balance out gravity's own mistakes (example 40 str god items) but to also do a huge kick in the balls to private servers who use higher caps.

Still wouldn't work.

With this system you will have 10x LESS MATK / ATK, while HP will increase.

But this should be at least TESTED. They're going to increase damage on a bunch of things, maybe it won't be that bad.

Well, if rods don't have ATK, then what's the point of whacking ppl with your rod? As for MATK, most Rods (as well as a handful of daggers and books) give MATK in percentage, some also give INT... I just think giving specific weapons a fixed MATK bonus is part of the renewal system, as MATK is now presented much like our ATK...
