Hi ! I'm a returning player and have played RO for thousands of hours in the past decades. However because I'm extremely casual, I don't have much ideas what's going on with this server. And I'm not planning on spending IRL money on RO for now. Because Knight has always been a very good choice for farming (access to Bowling Bash, Pierce, high regen from pots, pecopeco, etc) I thought I would make that as my first character. I went to what seems to be the usual Spores then Bigfoot then Orc village, and I'm getting close to job level 50 as a Swordy. However my stuff for now is : a +6 bastar'd sword from npc. And the novice adventurer suit given at the beginning. And that's all. I got lucky and dropped an orc lady card which might help for later. And I also farmed a bit of Stem by leveling an archer. My questions are (not in order of priority) : -1- How to make zeny "fast" from trash loot while leveling without using too expensive stuff / pots ? For instance, if there are some alternate leveling maps that could help me, I'd be glad to know ! Tried to wander to elder willow and such already but wasn't satisfying. Stems being used by alche/bio if I recall correctly, they used to have some value. But here ? I don't know which loots are valuable or not on this server. -2- Is the fact base level is very slow to level up in comparison to job level linked to the fact it's RO "prime" with alternate experience tables ? I played mostly pre-renewal, and after that it wasn't really on official servers. And I would love if this server lasted long and if I could finally find a place. However I am not used to having my base level so low in comparison to job level. Only time I had such a situation was after long hours at Leaf cats. -3- Would you go for Knight or Hunter first to farm for money for the first characters ? That means being able to buy very basic stuff like max safe upgrade NPC lv3 weapons, potions, etc. It's not much money but when you start with nothing it means a lot. Also : any fun spots to xp safely that have valuable trash loot ? -4- As a Knight I am going the old Str / Dex / Vit. Is it still good ? Since, if I'm not mistaken, in renewal there aren't the stats boosts when you reach a multiple of 10 in a stat, are there values that I should have as goals ? For now I pay attention to Dex in priority and then Str and then Vit (something like 30-40 str / 30 - 40 dex / 20 - 30 vit as I'm around level 45). I usually like to later put 10-15 points in Int for the SP recovery boost when using items, and I have no idea how much hybrid with agility could be good here ? Any advice and things to do or not to do ? And I think that's all for now, Wishing that this server lives longer than the last ones.... And hoping to have some fun ! Thanks for reading and thanks if you feel like answering !
