Server is reliably up and open, crashes very rarely, these issues are fixed quickly. Community is pretty dank, with many diverse communities. GMs are prof. but also friendly at times. I wouldn't call the server imbalanced or p2w since the cash shop is pretty easy to access for non-paying players (event currency) My main gripe is the super outdated refines holding back every new content the server gets, giving them a worse feeling over all. They need to fix that ASAP. Wont bug newbies though.

Content wise the server is up-to-date with regular patches and fixes. Donation shop is balanced enough that you can reach end game without spending a penny. Plenty of stuff to do with daily, monthly and seasonal events such as summer and Halloween. The community is pretty active on discord or in-game chat although not so much on the forum. WoE is not as active as I might liked but Battlegrounds and PvP scenes are alright. Overall, best renewal server there is, give it a shot.

old iRO player here, got dragged here by my GF; I generally hated trying pservs in the past, but Nova's been pretty decent. Exp boosted enough that it's not utterly mindless grinding, but still a challenge to get cards and gear. I don't know anything about guild comp since I haven't maxed a char yet, and in pvm, MOST builds are viable. AR is really bad and barely has effect. RE: cash shop... it's on par with iROs, and that's all I'm gonna say about it.

NovaRO is a pretty fun server to play, the rates along with some missions bring the right balance between time spent leveling and time spent doing what you want to. The server barely ever has downtime, with most updates not taking too long to be done on the server or downloaded. The admins are pretty nice, despite what some people may say, I have never felt disrespected or looked down upon, and when online, they respond pretty quickly Overall a great server, come in and have some fun!

Where do all those "it's balanced" people come from? What's going on is the opposite of balance. Class balance is a big joke, many builds are worthless everywhere while others are overpowered. Choices of equipment are very narrow so you're pigeonholed into "meta". PvM is absolutely laughable, almost everything is soloable and poses no threat. Leveling is high-rate fast. Donations are far from balanced with enriched ores at 1$ a pop. Join only for socializing, there isn't much of a game left.

Sorry to hear you feel that way. I hope you find a server that better suits your needs. I personally feel most classes are perfectly viable, and the majority of the items in the cash shop are cosmetics.

Great balanced server for pvm. Been here for a year or so, one WoE is pretty active while the other is pretty much dead. Small/Mid guilds have little to no chance. Gear progression is nice and achievable. Donations are balanced. Questionable GMs and their involvement with players. Server focuses alot on costumes. Overall great server, but dont expect too much out of it.

Best server for pvm, it is the most balanced i ever seen.Fast updates following Kro, bugs usually fixed in a good time. GMs have lack of manners (except tokei) abusive to people while easily unban cheaters as long as they beg for it(to don t loose population and donations) that was enough for me to quit. Woe is Inconsistent 1 castle 2 big guilds.. all medium guilds are cut out and GMs not open to the players requests to open more castles. PVP dead. GM use to ban bad reviewers.Server worth a try

No idea where you're getting your claim about unbanning cheaters. The fact that you request more castles to be open in WoE shows how little you know about it. PvP on average has at least ~10 people online, with BG Happy Hours easily getting to 12v12s and higher. And I've never banned a single player over a negative review. Please don't spread lies.

Hi, i decided to rate NovaRO since i know they deserve this kind of review. This server is balanced, no overpowered equips. If ever they missed some bugs, it will be resolved based on my observations on their patches. Lively main chat, I enjoy it since it removes the boring feeling while farming. Rates are not bad, leveling is not that hard since there's gramps. I enjoy mostly everything, i spend my time mostly making headgears. I love mostly everything especially my RNG! :brentrambomeme:

Out of all servers I've played in the past (and I have quite a few behind me) NovaRO remains my favorite. I cannot say much about PvP and such since I've never been into that but in all other ways it seems superior (management, stability, balance, you name it). I see GMs on quite a lot and while I'd like (even) more events, I've gotten to participate in quite a few and that's been great fun! Warmly recommended to anyone who's looking for the most up-to-date RO experience. ^_^

1-2 GMs here are good, but as others mentioned, admin here is pure scum. GMs can help you seldomly with easy question, but with bugs, etc. - don't expect it, especially from admin. A lot of insults in main chat. Admin doesn't protect rules, instead will move blame on you. Some items, quests, setup options, etc. are bugged and admin not fixing them. Community is toxic or quiet. Few friendly people hide in seldom guilds. Market overflows with zeny. In over-all so-so server with bad administration.

We constantly work on fixing bugs and have a very active bug tracker on our forums. Main is generally clean and we offer warnings for people who are being offensive. And the rules are enforced each and every day. Really sounds like you're just making stuff up because of a personal grudge.
