The community here is for the most part friendly and helpful. Share range is 150, which makes this ideal for you to still learn the class you chose, but get a leech as well for the higher levels. Leveling still has a bit of a grind to it, sure, but not onerous. Everything you need is in the Main Town, and they have @storage, @go and @return. You only need one piece of ammo, not the several made arrows or bought bullets. GMs actually administer the game, and it's good there's no donations.

Well-balanced server with no corruption or donate items. MvPs are fun and there's a lot of action in fighting over them. Economy is good, WoE is fun when enough guilds are available. Could use more competition there. Overall, this is a server worth your time.

Fun server. MVPing has nice competition across the actives guilds. WOE can be hit or miss on the weekend since there are only a handful of active guilds, but really it's only missing one or two more to change that. Community is really nice, there are a few really wonderful and magnetic souls like Mandy who really brighten up the climate. Now onto the fashion. Hat variety is kind of limited but you can still make a unique character. I would really like to see more hats/headgears implemented

ObsidianRO is a balanced high rate with end-game content such as PVP over MVPs, WoE, BG, quest-lines, and large multi-month events. The server has a competitive WoE scene between the current three guilds. There is a guild package available for new guilds and mechanics to help new players get up to speed quickly. The community is friendly and supportive of newbies and helps get people going even though leveling is a pain. AGI reduces after-cast delay so no class feels gimped without support.

Fun HR server without any overpowered custom content and interesting balance, MVPs are buffed and contested with PK. No donations means anyone can catch up if they want and there is also a guild pack for guilds of at least 8 members. WoE is active and people friendly

Decent server, just needs some more guilds to compete against us! Mvps are highly contested here. Decent custom items that aren't too OP imo. All maps outside of towns are pvp so it is quite enjoyable!

Pretty fresh server, balanced to the point where your progression is not too long, not too slow. Getting items feels rewarding. Class balance still needs work but it's not worse than official. Server staff is amazing, they ask community what we think about some major changes before doing them now - which judging from previous reviews is a big improvement. Impressive customized quests and events combined with classic ro feel. Only problem is that day only has 24 hours and there is so much to do.

Server went from fun to a sh*t fest real quick with stupid changes. First of all alot of people quit because the rates got changed over and over, Admin thought people are leveling too fast because he never played RO himself. Then he tries to Balance the game even tho he doesn't know anything about RO mechanics. If you criticize changes he made and try to argue with him he can most likely get banned and blocked ingame and get kicked off the discord also. I will not recommend playing here.

Hi! Firstly, nobody has been banned in the history of the server for disagreeing with server direction or for voicing their opinions. People that get removed from discord, or muted in game are either incredibly rude, continuously offer negative feedback, or break the rules. A lot of people are very passionate about this server, and sometimes causes them to turn incredibly arrogant, entitled, and say hurtful things. It's about knowing how to communicate properly. Thank you for your review.

Head GM is clueless that doesn't understand the game mechanics (thinking stats effect freeze res, maya p is a hack) and updates the server once a month with no indication of what's being worked on. If you criticise him he just bans you from the discord. Server went from 250+ to 30 with vendors. Only 2 pieces of unique gear released in 4 months and absolutely NO CONTENT FOR MAX LEVEL!! No customization. He clearly doesn't know how to code and tricked the server owner into appointing him.

Hi. To defend ourselves here, you actively spew a lot of misinformation about our server and complain about absolutely everything in an incredibly negative way. While we appreciate your dedication, discussion, and how much you care about this server, your feedback is not constructive. We patch the server at least twice per month, in most cases more to help with balance and add content. The lead GM actively spends 50+ hours per week on dev work with no donations. Thank you for your review.

This server used to be very populated but has been on a steady decline since its release. From 150+ to now 30~ with 20ish vendors. GM's are nice when they are around, but the head admin doesn't understand RO mechanics (thought seeing cloaked players with maya p was a hack). The biggest guild BC has left the server due to the admin making drastic changes without any input from community. Upcoming changes kept hidden til its implemented. Nothing to do once u are max lvl but mvp. No GvG or PvP

Hi. I'd like to clarify here that a lot of changes come directly from the community in both discord and focus group testing with several community members. In our defense Maya p hack looks exactly like wearing a maya p card, and we didn't even accuse the person of it, it was a question when viewing a video. Every patch adds more and more things to do and the lead GM actively spends more than 50 hours per week on server development. We hope you will come back one day and reconsider your review.
