FAQ of Ragnarok and Common Terms

FAQ of Ragnarok
This interview was a test of my patience and I decided to write a guide based on all the little things new players don’t know about woe and RO in general (yes, this was an actual interview with an actual player).
Interview with a Newbie
New Player: how to join guild?

New Player: frozen or stone cursed?
New Player: cant
New Player: why
Sonja: Marc card stops frozen
Sonja: ED card stops SC
Sonja: ED = Evil druid
New Player: hmm
Sonja: you leave people who SC/Freeze because it takes longer to unfreeze/SC than it takes to die and come back again
Sonja: plus people that do Freeze/SC are probably wearing GR (ghostring)
Sonja: and won’t be killed except by asura when frozen/SC
Sonja: Frozen turns armor property to water
Sonja: Stone curse turns armor into earth
Sonja: negating the ghost property

Other FAQ of Ragnarok not covered in the Interview:
Q: How do I make a guild?
A: You need an Emperium and then you type in /guild “Guild Name”

Q: How do I use a custom emblem for my guild?
A: This can be tricky if you don’t know what to do. First, the Emblem must be a 24 x 24 pixel image in the .bmp (bitmap) format. In the RO folder, make a folder named Emblem. Put the Emblem you want to use into the Emblem folder. In game open your guild information screen, click the edit button, and select the emblem you want to use. For help on how to create a cool looking emblem read this post at the RO Empire Forums.

Q: How do I delete a guild?
A: First, only the current guild master can break a guild. Expel everyone from guild and then type in /breakguild “Guild Name”

Q: How do I leave a guild?
A: Open the guild screen with Alt G. Find your name in the List of members, right click your name, choose the option to leave guild. It will ask you for a reason, it’s common courtesy to tell them why you are leaving.

Q: Where do I level (class here) at (number) level?
A: Read my leveling guide, I get tired of repeating myself.

Q: How do I get to (such and such) dungeon?
A: Read my Map Access Guide.

Q: What does ks mean?
A: KS is kill stealing. This is more than just rude, it’s illegal on many servers. Some servers have the command @noks

Q: What is a bot? Is botting allowed?
A: Lazy players set up programs to run their character to hunt or do other tasks. Botting is illegal on most servers.

Q: Heal, Zeni, Items please?
A: No, get it yourself everyone else has to do it. Here’s a link to my Money Making Guide.

Q: I shared my equips with this random person and now I can’t find him, what do I do?
A: Don’t fall for scams. Don’t share stuff with people. If you do share with others you can try to screenshot the deal and chat, but it’s all up to the GMs of your server. Report the person, and if you don’t have a screenshot then you’re screwed.

Q: How do I auto-follow?
A: The character you wish to auto-follow with must have /nc turned off. If you turn it off you will have to start auto-followtwice. Hold shift and right click the person you wish to auto-follow, a small triangle will appear over their head and you will follow them. Remember if it doesn’t work: turn off /nc and click twice to autofollow.

Q: How do I stop lagging so much?
A: There are a few ways to reduce lag. Use the command /effect to turn on and off your effects. Use the command /aura to simplify auras. If these don’t work you can go into the RO Folder > Setup.exe. The Setup has options for sprite detail and texture. Turning these down will help reduce lag, but make the characters blotchy and ugly.

Q: The ground went white, can I fix it without relogging?
A: Yes, use the command /lightmap to fix it.

Q: What do these mean: B>, S>, T>, A>, N>, R>, AFK
A: Buy, Sell, Trade, Auction, Need, Recruiting, Away From Keyboard

Q: How do I create (such and such item)?
A: There is a specific skill you need based on class and specific items to use as ingredients. Follow the instructions in theRMS Creation Database.

Most Common Terms:
NPC: Non Player Characters, they open a pop up dialog box when you click on them with pre-set responses or set items they sell. You can also sell items to an NPC to make money. There are useless filler NPCs with no purpose, Quest NPCs which will open a dungeon or give you a needed item, Vending NPCs which buy and sell goods, informative NPCs, and basic game mechanic NPCs. The basic game mechanic NPCs are Healer, Town Warper, Dungeon Warper, Stylist, Class Change, Resetter, Platinum Skill NPC, etc.
Town Map: Maps that have Kafra and many other NPCs and no aggressive monsters. (Do I really have to define a town?)
Field Map: The World Map shows Field Maps only. To access a Dungeon, you must first travel through the correct field map in most cases (there are some short-cuts but it costs zeni).
Dungeon Map: This does not appear on the World Map. The entrances are accessed via Field Maps. Though usually “underground,” this is not always the case.
Drops: Items that the monsters “drop”. If your server does not have @autoloot 100 automatically set, the monster will drop your items on the ground. If you want to change the percentage of dropped items you keep to 50%, type the command @autoloot 50. I suggest keeping all your drops and then sell everything, except for: Equipment, Healing Items, and Cards.
Equipment: An item that can be worn by your character, found in the second tab of your inventory Alt E. Alt Q will bring up your “gear” or “equip” screen. Gear can be obtained by killing the right monster or buying from another Player or NPC.
Healing Items: An item in the first tab of inventory that can be consumed to heal hit points or spell points. Certain special “consumables” can increase a stat or give a skill your class might not have. For example, Authoritative Badges provide the Priest buff Increase Agility.
Card: An item in the third tab of inventory. It can be put on to a specific kind of equipment to enhance your skills, stats, or provide an additional bonus.
Epic Fail, Phail, FTL: For the Loss. Basically, “You suck” in internet lingo.
FTW: For the Win! Basically, “You rule” in internet lingo.
Powned, pwn3d, pwnd, pwnt: I believe this was derived from power and owned, it means, “You just got your butt kicked.”
Noob: A new player that many experienced gamers look down on. They will often make many mistakes at crucial moments and fail to listen to organized commands.
Pro: Power gamers who play their game with almost religious faith and on a daily basis. They will usually - but not always - have little to no real life social skills.
IRL, irl: In Real Life
Emp: The Emperium of the Castle must be defended or the castle will be taken by an enemy guild. It has only one real location in game despite that it takes up four spaces. Only cast safety wall on the top right space of the Emp. Sanctuary and Slim Potion Pitcher will heal the Emp.
Emp Room: The inner most room of the castle which contains the Emp. Usually the bulk of the defense is set up in this room.
Spawn Point: The spot next to a portal on the map where your character appears. You can abuse the spawn point if you know how.
Precast: The ledge or area furthest from the Spawn Point from which High Wizards and Creators can “cast” on enemies. The idea is to kill them as soon as they enter the room, on the spawn point.
AoE: Area of Effect, a skill that hits more than one square or target.
WoE: War of Emperium. A battle to hold a castle against enemies to obtain the treasures in the treasure room.
