Played for 5yrs. Server: 98% stable/online. Few lag spikes. Cmty: Full of veterans--half are rude; half are helpful. Trolls all over Main chat. Designated Event GMs host player events quite often. GameMstr: Event GMs mostly friendly. High GMs are pretty rude and condescending. You report/suggest something and they shut you down without a chance for debate. Sometimes insult players in public. Most GMs actually don't know their own server rules. Gameplay: WoE/PvP is dead. Rare item supply>demand

Thank you for your review! We're glad that you're enjoying the stability and community of TalonRO, and we hope that you continue to enjoy your time! Our Gamemaster team is comprised of a diverse, expert staff who are well-versed rules and community engagement - so we would disagree with the assessment that some or most GMs engage in behavior that is condescending and hope your interactions with the staff will change your mind! We appreciate your thoughts and hope you continue enjoying TalonRO.

I only just started TalonRO, but I must say that everyone has been very helpful. Most of the time, I even get buffs when I load somewhere. I have witnessed several events, gm and player-made, but I haven't taken part in all of them yet as I am still trying to level up. I got free gears(EWE and others) for a player hosted trivia though! It's easy to search shops to buy/sell what you need. If you aren't happy, or just want to experiment, it is easy to reset skills/stats and that helps a lot. 0 lag

1st is the nostalgic moment of it and then there's the new known friend and family . After that your adventuring the wide world of ragnarok together and finishing some dungeon's and getting great rewards... for me this is really amazing feeling ^^

server has no lag and has monthly patches, as for the events there are daily events from the GM, quests are always available to earn for extra exp, the community is very active in answering queries and helping other players, the coin system and quest rewards in-game are very unique and helpfull specially for newbies.

It used to be my favorite server for more then two years! I have never played such server before, tRO provided me with tons of positive emotion. Community and GM's stuff are really helpful and friendly. Unfortunately recently it became very laggy(for a couple of months) and as I can see nothing is changing according this issue. I have tried to play from different places and different internet providers not long ago I've visited Germany in a work trip, but I even there I've faced the same problem

Every year or so when I inevitably get the RO itch, I always come back to tRO. The server is always up, rarely with any stability issues. The community is average, but they're usually helpful if you aren't annoying. There are a ton of GMs now, so there's almost always at least one or two online at a time to assist players. They're also from different time zones, so there's events pretty frequently at different times of day. The PvP scene is a work in progress atm, but there's other stuff to do.

I don't have played for many time - 2 weeks only -, so, i will give my first impressions. The server is very stable, but in one especific day it downs a few times (3 or 4, and with a few lag during the day), but all other days i don't have problem with this. About the Community, it's very friendly, is easy to get party and sometimes very strong players joins the party only to help. About GMs, i don't see any problem with then, sometimes you can find in Main Chat. I want to speak much more,but...

TalonRO has had no wipes since 2007, coming up on 10 years now. The economy has always been stable and vibrant. The community is very friendly and woe is active. As well the GM's promised there would be an active battlegrounds at the end of the year.

PVE wise everything has been rehash of old events, updates has been lazy and just cosmetics. PVP wise, gms gives 0 effort in trying to make it active. BG is closed and has been with broken promises of improvement. Same with woe. There ARE NO BIG Guilds fighting it out, just trolls now that the vets have left cause of no real fix to the problem, even though the community gave so many feedback on it, they only get "nope" as an answer. Be sketptic joining this server, End game is pretty dead end.

Thank you for your review! Our monthly updates and features are far from cosmetic, as recent updates have expanded gameplay options, and many more updates have been focused on routine maintenance and fixes, which the team is committed to continually improving. This also extends to other forms of gameplay, and our team is actively working across all areas to develop and work with a long-view in mind in making TalonRO even better, now ten years in! Keep on discovering and we know you’ll have fun!

No bots but players behave worse than bots. It's like I'm always playing a single player PvM. Players will invite you to a party, level without any words being said and kick you without prior notice. It's like playing with zombies. The only "social" players are the @main channel kids who suffers severe case of ADHD. GMs can be friendly and helpful if they are available which is not often. Players has no grasp of basic economics or just doesn't care about vendor etiquette. WoE/PVP is dead.

Thank you for your review! It sounds like you might have had a bad experience with a party, as the vast majority of the TalonRO community are often quite friendly, talkative, and engaged in cooperation. Moreover, the characterization of the community as described isn’t how we would choose to describe TalonRO’s diverse population. GMs remain available through a variety of means, including Discord, support channels, etc. at virtually all times. We hope that you have a better experience sometime!
