Rune Knight's Colored Dragons (Ferus)

Hey guys,

Today I'm gonna share with you Rune Knight's Dragon mounts with some different colored Ferus (Dragons) that you'll be able to obtain through Quests, and/or Buy able tickets to redeem to NPCs.

(Please note designs and functions are subject to change)

These won't change any skills or preferences besides color of the mount, and it won't effect your current dye selection since it's a whole new sprite file that gets replaced with the current ones.

So in short, these won't be available until ALL the color dye files (Palettes) are complete so that your Rune Knight can still travel with the dye you bought along with the new mounts color.

These options will become available with other class mounts as well, so keep an eye out for 'em in the future, of course tho. I'll update you guys when I can.

Thats it for now, Enjoy!

Ragnarok Online Mobile Story *Update

Well, as promised I was gonna keep you guys updated with the new RO Mobile Story for newer cell phones. Today I'm gonna show you guys the GvG, 20vs20 systems, along with some extra updates extending the pervious mechanics of the current development.

What has been added and changed from last update?
  • Classes that can be found currently and used have been finalized which are all classes up to 2-1. However, 2-2 classes are currently being developed and will be patched through with your services once it's complete.
  • Also, the maps are rotatable now. Alittle laggy when using it and the map sizes had to be reduced to keep it from killing the phone but it works.
  • Current Town Maps are: Prontera, Geffen, and Izulde. Each containing 16 maps around each town as well. Plus there are plans for development for Prontera sewers.
  • Durning Quests, NPCs that are needed to be talked to will give you a guided path on your maps and light up on who needs to be talked to.
  • Quests will enable you to goto dungeons to battle with MVPs 1 on 1.

Onward to the juicy stuff !!!

GvG/Guild System/Party System/Friend List

Most of the data from your main RO account CAN be wired from the PC-to-Mobile. So any existing, registered friends, to guild, to party's will be instantly transferred to your mobile account.

Not much to really say about the GvG besides there you have it, find friends with your cells and/or PC to join up and go make a guild to go do WoE anytime anywhere on your mobile device!

(Note: this doesn't connect via LIVE to the PC-MMORPG servers so you can't go head to head with your servers current guilds, only the Mobiles server's guilds. Exp and prizes for the guild do however get wired back to your PC account.)

Only 2 towns can be taken over which is of course Prontera and Geffen. Plans for expansion are underway depending on the amount of players that flood the mobile GvG grounds.

As always guys, I'll keep you updated when I can, remember this is still in it's development stages. Thats it for now, Hope you enjoyed!

Expected time-frame for kRO Sakray 3-2 sprite patches

Hey guys,

Small post today I wanted to let you guys know of prior to my post awhile ago on the Shadow Chasers this is the time-frame we're expected to finally upload the sprites to kRO's Sakray-R server. It takes about 3-4 weeks to finalize and upload the next sprite onto the patcher if things change I'll update you guys.
Please note design, dates, and expected classes may vary

Well I hope you guys enjoy!
