Old RO player. Wanted to play again. Found NovaRO, which looked to have a decent sized, healthy community. So far, loving it! Leveling is comfortable, earning zenny is relatively easy, and there is a lot to do! Costumization is vast and plentiful. The GMs and community overall is helpful and friendly. There is always help to find. And Nova is a great guy. I definately recommend this server to others, looking to enjoy Ragnarok. Its not hardcore, but offers enough challenge at times.

scored low for reviewers, me-working adult who loved RO-Casual. Connection is top notch(UAE). Love features for comfort-novaExt/autos. Server made me learn RO Renewal and enjoy. Good for testing builds-none-meta items can be bought from market cheap. Community is composed of + and - players. approaching mid-late however make you feel the grind-Risk low%Refine or grind gefenia 10h+ for one Item . Competitive End game needs lots of repetetive farming but you can reach max level partying w/o gear.

many things to say but limited words, slow content releases and them not giving anything to expect, getting lowgear and midgear is farm tolerable, unfortunately high end gears not much, it is possible but will take days to months even years if you don't want to donate or unlucky with rng, refining some are even close to impossible, serious guild competition for 2-3 guilds, class balance is off cause of limitations to equipments, autotraders are counted in the population so probably just <500

I have tried many private servers before and Novaro is home finally. The community is very friendly here and GMs are always willing to help. The most important thing is that I can feel that they have made many efforts to keep the balance. There is no too powerful cards and items in the game. Refining is a little bit frustrating but that just because I am not a lucky guy haha. Looking forward to the safe refining method available in the future. Thanks much for bring RO back to my life.

Great server, still the best renewal server out there with an actual population, the server is kept pretty close to kRO with various customized content, the community is great, it has it's vocal cry babies but what community doesn't? I enjoy the active discord.

Please stop writing fake reviews where you just rate everything as a 5 and 1.

Nova has a lot going for it. Never offline, community is great and very active and the best staff team that you can get. Of course nothing is perfect, economy can be a bit stale sometimes and class balance is lackluster (that being more of a RO problem than Nova itself). Can't really comment on PvP/WoE community, as I do not partake on it - overall opinion is that it is very sensitive and could be better. Really hopeful and excited to see what NovaRO is gonna bring in 2019.

Poor class balance. Parties only accept meta classes and reject participation of other classes that are not within the popular meta. It's not newbie-friendly. Newbies are expected to grind so much more to catch up with the established meta that dominates instances. Economy fluctuates often. Now that the server doesn't have new content, it's spiraling down quickly to the point you wont be motivated to farm. Its large Filipino community is also toxic. They don't encourage growth, only discriminate

We've not stopped working on new content, and you can most definitely expect more very soon. I'm sorry to hear you've had a negative experience as a newbie, my recommendation would be to find a friendly guild, in which you would be much more accepted than random parties which tend to be rather competitive.

Really good server, best choice to go for if you ever want to try a renewal server. Economy's alive but janky, with prices that seem to go up and down erratically. Class tiers isn't as horrendous as people make it up to be, but its getting pretty bad, they just need to get more EQs to choose from. Keep in mind these issues concern end game players more, and those starting out wouldn't feel much issues. Looking forward to the upcoming BSB and other upcoming events, do hope they pull it off proper

Thank you for your review. The actual ratings throw me off a little bit, but we're definitely looking to expand our end-game content and equipment.
