Having played this server for a few months now, it has become clear that the GMs want to remain 'neutral' when it comes to keeping the community from essentially verbally attack each other. GMs also very clearly verbally players in the main channel claiming "are just complaining" instead of being mature. Having GM'd on many servers, I've very aware of how stressful and difficult GMing can be, but that doesn't mean you can take your frustration out on players. Be an adult and GM, don't pick sides

Tired of all p2w shenanigans? Want a server with some quality of life features like autoloot, chat channels, kafra teleportation relaying? With a living market and stability? Some nice party bonus? I would you recommend you join OriginsRO. I joined recently and I am very happy with how things are going.

Nice Free Server, without any Donation or Cash Items. GMs are nice and helpfull. Community always try to help other Peoples. My Favorite about this Server: A Bonus for Party, when no one Dual-Clients (Up to extra 120%). That is why here are many 12/12 People Partys, even with strangers, to meet new people (Except in Bio3 at the Moment, what they hopefully changed in the next few patches). MvP and WoE are like in officials, just without Godlikes, nothing special.

Had a fun mini-event with GM Deuteron just now, which made me want to write a review. I have been playing on and off for 2 years. A great server so far - no game breaking custom items and dedicated staff (Thanks for all the hard work you're putting into the server by the way) My only wish would be for players to be more active in PvP, becuase most of the time there are no players in there.

This is a server that stays true to original RO with no custom NPCs/items/maps. And perhaps most importantly, there are NO DONATIONS at all, so this is not a pay-to-win server as most servers we see nowadays. There are always parties running due to their party exp bonus, so leveling is enjoyable. The community is 5-stars as well, always ready to help you out. As for the economy, it's a very low-inflation economy with affordable prices.

OriginsRO claims to be the closest thing to the original RO experience, yet the Dev team keeps 'fixing' stuff that didn't need fixing in the first place ie. party exp, cards effects (hello Hunter Fly Card) etc. A LOT of RMT going on behind the scenes and GM involvement in shady business I won't go into details here, ahem GM Ischia. Super toxic behavior that is 90% of the time overlooked by the GM team and overall, favoritism for some players. Stay away.

Thank you for your review, but please check your claims! The Hunter Fly Card was an official bug fix, not a customization. While we diverge a little from official (other than for QoL improvements) - it's all listed in the FAQ on our website and wiki - this isn't one of those cases. As for GM Ischia, she is no longer a GM, since half a year ago. We're strongly set against RMT and we constantly ban sellers and buyers, no matter how unpopular that makes us among cheaters and pay2win player circles.

If there's one thing oRO does well it's balance; No donations of any kind, no god items, no bots and economy-preserving steps have been taken including nerfing donation-inducing drops like sleepers such that the economy is better for the 7 year old server than it is for most 1 year old pservers. I really can't emphasize enough the "no donations" part. Ragnarok is AMAZING when it isn't p2w. If you see someone with powerful gear you know they worked damn hard to get it and you can respect that.

OriginsRO offers a pleasant experience for what it offers - a journey through the classic times of Ragnarok. The server hasn't had the best of days lately due to decisions recently made by the staff - such as slowing down leveling and axing partying incentives - leading to a surge of solo players and multiclienting, compared to the booming partying community that used to exist before. The server now feels barren in contrast, as most players have switched to playing alone.

I tried giving this server a chance again, thinking that maybe the Staff had changed their ways of actually punishing their friends for constant harassment towards specific guildies and members. Nothing has changed. Favoritism is greatly presented. Instead they're telling people they don't like to leave. So much for that promised "reform". Individual harassment and abuse in #main is heavily present and not much is being done. Changes fit only for GM's circle friends. Until this changes I'm out.

Good Things: Low lag, Good Stability, No bots, No cash shop. Bad things: Many skills don't work correctly. Blinding mist doesn't blind monsters, Whirlwind lets lov hit cecils, Fiberlock works on land protect, etc. Woe castle drops severely nerfed and god items are removed leading to a boring meta where people just gvg rather than take the castles. The staff is often rude, dismissive and are bad at communicating. They make arbitrary decisions with no player input. Harassment often goes unchecked.
