    Dear Tribe, It’s been a most wonderful four years being part of this community where we all shared our ups and down, laughter, and memories. I will never forget those of you who have been on this journey with me, and helped the server grow into what it is today. It fills me with sadness to announce that I must resign from the server to due personal issues, mostly because of the lack of time I have available, juggling both my day job and community management on ExperienceRO. I wish I could meet everyone who joins the community in the future and becomes part of the family. I’m sure we would have had an amazing time together! Wishing you only the best, Riley

    Hello, lovelies! I'm Riley, your friendly neighborhood lunatic I'm an admin at ExperienceRO, and I manage the community and social parts of the game like Discord, forums, wiki, Facebook, etc. I love hosting and attending events, and just having fun hanging out with all you beautiful people Outside of RO, I have a full-time job in merchandising for an world mega event company so I sadly do not have as much time as I'd like to spend actually playing the game... I'm almost always available to chat on Discord if you need help or just want to say hi ^-^ Love, Riley ♥

  5. Game & Client Issues Patcher Issues Your patcher should be located in your ExperienceRO folder under the file name 'ExperienceRO Patcher.exe' Delete ExperienceRO.dat Disable your antivirus and firewall. Right-click your patcher and 'Run as administrator'. Extraction Issues Archive/file damaged? Download 7-Zip Right-click the ExperienceRO .zip or .rar 7-Zip from options→Extract to "ExperienceRO\" ExperienceRO.exe has stopped working Viewing Your Equipment There are times when viewing your own equipment can cause you to crash, and it is usually a costumed headgear that is causing it. To know which one it is and hopefully solve the issue, do the following: Go to experience-ro.com and log in Hover over Account at the top navigation bar→My Account Click on your character Make sure you're logged out of the game, then select "Reset Look" Viewing Others' Equipment Viewing others' equipment will cause you to crash if they have an aura or an animated headgear with spriting issues equipped. Ask your friend to remove his or her animated or middle headgear then try to view the equipment again. Crashing in Certain Areas Does walking to a certain area or NPC make you crash? Then just zoom in very, very closely until you can't see that NPC. Then, walk to your destination, avoiding that NPC from your view. Report to the GMs should this be your case. Move ExperienceRO.dat Close your client(s) Go to your ExperienceRO folder Locate ExperienceRO.dat Move it to another folder or directory (Documents, Desktop, etc.) Run ExperienceRO Patcher.exe → Patch up → Try again Patch Up We implement new patches regularly, so make sure you're patched up. Go to your ExperienceRO folder Find "ExperienceRO Patcher" Right-click the patcher and "Run as administrator". When it's done downloading all the files, there will be a message saying "Client is up to date!" Disable DEP for ExperienceRO.exe Disable your antivirus and firewall. Right-click 'My Computer' or 'This PC' Left side, click 'Advanced System Settings' Advanced → Performance → Settings → Data Execution Prevention 'Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:' → 'Add...' Find your ExperienceRO folder and select 'ExperienceRO.exe' Apply Restart your computer Admin and Compatibility Right-click ExperienceRO.exe → Properties Under the Compatibility tab → Compatibility mode → Check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' Select your operating system from the drop-down list. Also under the Compatibility tab → Settings → 'Run this program as an administrator' Apply and restart Resource File Loading fail The red "Resource File Loading fail" messages are indicators of minor spriting issues. We all get these messages, but there is nothing wrong with your client, and they don't affect gameplay. We are constantly trying to fix these spriting issues, so please bear with us in the meanwhile. Now Logging Out If you get a "Now Logging Out" message on your character, it means that you logged out near an automatic dialogue NPC. You will have to reset your character's coordinates. Close your client Log in to Experience-RO.com Click Account→"My Account" Click on your character that's logging out. Click "Reset Position" Screenshot Distortion If your screenshots are in black and white and are distorted, your client has a resolution issue. Go to your ExperienceRO folder. Launch "ExperienceRO Setup.exe" Under the Graphics tab, find "Resolution:" Choose a width and height that are divisible by 8. Bad Example: "1366x768x32" is bad because 1366/8 is 170.75, which contains a remainder, even if 768/8=96 returns a whole number. Bad resolutions: 1152x864x32 1366x768x32 1400x1050x32 1680x1050x32 Good Example: "1360x768x32" is good because 1360/8=170; 768/8=96; 32/8=4. They all return whole numbers instead of remainders. Good resolutions: 640x480x32 800x600x32 1024x768x32 1280x720x32 1280x768x32 1280x800x32 1280x960x32 1280x1024x32 1360x768x32 1400x900x32 1600x900x32 1920x1080x32 Character Deletion Email Password You will be prompted to "enter the deletion password". This is usually the email that you used to register your account. If you get an error, try this: https://www.experience-ro.com → Enter your account details → Login → My Account Copy the email address directly from the page and paste it to Notepad. Make sure it's correct without any extra spaces or missing characters. Copy it from Notepad and paste it to the answer box on the ExperienceRO client then click 'OK'. Birthday Password Try your birthday instead (format: YYMMDD). If you're born May 27th 1993, for example, your password should be 930527. This works for some players instead of the registered email for some reason.

    Rules & Etiquette

    Q) A player KSed a monster I wanted to kill. What should I do? Move along and try again. Kill-stealing is part of the Ragnarok Online experience! The game developers made it that way for a reason. When it comes to MvPs, most servers rule them as free-for-all, and so do we. Also, @noks doesn't work so just try to be a good sport about it. Q) Some players type too quickly in Disguise Event. Are they cheating? There are players who use the Alt shortcuts (Alt+M) for quick answers. This is very discouraged of players to do, but it is not considered cheating, so please be careful when reporting other players. See the Reporting Guidelines for more information. Q) Is GRF modification allowed? You are allowed to modify sprites. Q) Are we allowed to use bots/macros/third-party software? NO!

    Q) Why can't I warp out of certain maps? You cannot warp out of some maps. You can manually walk your character outside, or you can relog, which is usually faster. Q) Why can't I @warp to gld_dun? To go to a guild dungeon, you must be a member of the guild that owns that dungeon. Q) Why can't I @warp to man_fild03? You cannot @warp to Manuk fields. You must take the Warper NPC > Fields > Manuk Fields > Manuk Field 3 Q) Why can't I @warp to lhz_dun03? You can either complete the Bio Lab Entrance Quest, or you can @warp to lhz_dun02 and take the portal in the center of the map that will lead you to lhz_dun03.

    Q) What does @afk do? The @afk command logs your character out, but its 'presence' is still in the server. Q) What is the point of @afk? Mostly, players use @afk after using @market to allow their markets clones to stay online while their actual characters are offline. Also, the equipment of @afk clones are still viewable if players leave equipment open to the public. Similarly, merchant vendors can use @autotrade to keep their shops open while they are offline. See: Vending Q) Do we earn Event Tokens when using @afk? Q) Why did I stop receiving Event Tokens? Q) Why is my DEF negative? Your case is likely one of the following: You're using Tao Gunka Card which decreases DEF by 50% You have so much DEF from refinement that your DEF overflowed. Reduce it at the De-Refiner then check your DEF afterward. Q) How to autoloot Pocket Watch? Q) Why can't I use [insert skill name here]? It could be due to different reasons, depending on the case: Try @allskills Some skills have been disabled. See Disabled Skills. Make sure you have enough SP. Fallen Bishop Hibram Card is known to reduce SP. Q) Why do I get messages that say "Miss" when I'm fighting an MvP? You could try increasing your seeking attack (which helps to not miss targets when performing physical skills), using equipment that enhance seeking attacks like Ifrit Ears of Seeking, Seeking Bishop Hat, and Sage Ring of Chance. You can also increase your seeking attack using the Hunter Card Set and the Ancient Mummy Combo. Depending on your character, you may need more DEX/Hit. When you get the message, you could also try to wait 5-10 second before hitting your target again. Also, make sure that the element you're using counters your target. See the Elemental/Attribute Property Tables for reference. Q) I used a card that enchanted my armor with a property (Angeling, Ghostring, Pasana, etc). Why do I still get hit? Enchanting your armor with a certain property/element does not necessarily make you resistant to that element. See the Elemental/Attribute Property Tables for reference. Q) I'm using Bubble Gum, but the drop rates aren't increasing. Why is that? There are two types of Bubble Gum: regular Bubble Gum (Item ID: 12210) which says that it increases drop rates to 200% (2x the standard rate) and (Item ID: 12412) which says it increases drop rates to 300% (3x the standard rate). Neither of the descriptions are to be taken literally. They do not increase the actual drop rates. When using Bubble Gum (regular), killing a monster will behave as though you killed it 2x, giving you two chances of obtaining the item. Say you're hunting Lost Soul (drop rate: 10%) with HE Bubble Gum. This is the process: Using Bubble Gum, you killed Soul Taker for 10% of obtaining Bubble Gum. Did the player receive it? If so, end roll 1. If not, Step 2. Using Bubble Gum, you killed Soul Taker for 10% of obtaining Bubble Gum. Did the player receive it? If so, end roll 2. If not, Step 3. Using Bubble Gum, you killed Soul Taker for 10% of obtaining Bubble Gum. Did the player receive it? If so, end roll 3. As you can see, the drop rate is still 10%, but it's as if the gum gave you more chances of obtaining the item. Q) Does using more than one Bubble Gum stack? Do Bubble Gum and HE Bubble Gum stack? No. Q) Can we trade Lost Soul? Q) How do I tame a monster without taming items? Use a professor's Abracadabra (AKA Hocus Pocus) skill. Q) I am using a Mistress Card. Why do I still need a gemstone? Mistress Card only covers 1 gemstone. That means that if a skill (such as Abracadabra) requires 2 gemstones, it will cover 1 gem, but you'll still have to cover the other one. Q) I have tried to tame a monster many times, but why haven't I caught it yet? Taming rates have been modified in the server to be at a 10% (?) success rate, whether the player is using taming items or Abracadabra. Abracadabra's taming spell also only shows up at a 10% rate. For this reason, be careful when trying to tame a summoned MvP. See Custom Pets for more information on ExperienceRO's custom pets. Q) I want to feed my pet, but the food is unavailable. What should I do? Pets foods that are not easy to find have been replaced with "Pet Food" for easier access. Try to feed that to your pet. If it still doesn't work, check the Pet System page to make sure that you are using the correct food for your corresponding pet. Q) Where do pet eggs go when I store them? Pet eggs are in the armor/equipment category. You must use an Incubator to hatch pet eggs. Q) Why is my SP very low when using Fallen Bishop Hibram cards? FBH cards reduce SP by 50%. The drainage can be helped by using Pharaoh Card. Q) My Star Gladiator has the Blind effect and it isn't going away. How can I fix this? This is a side effect of using the "Demon of the Sun, Moon and Stars" skill. To make it go away, reset your skills at the Reset Girl (moonhaven 215 190). Avoid using that skill if you wouldn't want its blinding effect. Q) Can I reset hatred? No. Q) Can we change guild masters? No. The @changegm command is disabled to encourage guild masters to stay active. The only way to have the 'same' guild with a new guild master is by creating a new guild. This either means that all guild members should leave the guild or the guild master should expel the guild members until there is nobody else left. Only then can the guild master disband the guild, and the next guild master can create a new guild.

    See: Technical Support Q) Why do I keep getting errors/crashes when I'm trying to install/play the game? Antiviruses are known for false threats when it comes to RO. They can also delete/corrupt some important files. For that reason, we advise players to turn off their antiviruses and firewalls before downloading until after patching the game. Also, lite clients are usually not very reliable, so try the full client instead. Q) Why do I get red messages in my chat log with the words "Resource file loading fail"? It is a minor spiriting issue message that appears on all clients. It doesn't affect gameplay. However, we are constantly working on getting rid of all the error messages, so please bear with us! Q) Why did I crash when I viewed my friend's equipment? Viewing others' equipment will cause you to crash if they have an aura or a similar mid-headgear with spriting issues equipped. Ask your friend to remove his or her middle headgear then try to view the equipment again. Q) Why does it say "Now Logging Out" when I try to log in to my character? That's because you last logged the character out near an automatic dialogue NPC. What you need to do is log in to experience-ro.com, then select your character and click on "Reset Position". This will reset your character's location back to your save/restore point, away from any automatic dialog NPCs. Then log in and it should work just fine. Q) Why am I lagging? Apart from ExperienceRO behind hosted on one of the biggest hosting services worldwide, we do everything we can to make the connection smooth. If you're still experiencing lag, then try another ISP and see if that makes a difference.

    Newcomer Questions

    Q) What is the name of the main town map? (@go 0) Q) What commands can I use? In the game, type @commands. You can see more commands on the Commands page. Q) Where can I level? Main article: Beginner's Guide Q) What should I do after leveling? Q) Is there an MvP room? Q) Is there a command which can add status points quickly? Use this format: /str+ 250 Keep in mind that the most you can add at a time is 255. Adding more than that will cause it to 'overflow' and will add a different number. Also, there is a 65,534 MATK cap. Adding more INT and MATK increments could cause the MATK points to reset. Q) Where is the mall? Q) How do I automatically loot a specific item? From where can I find this item? Where can I find that monster? How can I fight it? @alootid + @whodrops @whereis @mi How To Main article: How To Q) How to create a guild?
