Completely ruined economy. I spent more time doing boring **** then actually enjoying game. All you can do at start is farm gefenia, then buy basic gear for genetic gefenia farmer and farm more zeny, becouse you can't finish weekly as fresh player and you need billions zen for eq which let you complete Sean quest solo. Why solo quest? Becouse this server fake population and noone playing anything except bio5 and hidden garden. PvP and woe is dead. GLHF.

Ex Pre-re player here. After a 7 years hyatus I decided to come back to RO and try Renewal. After trying all the mainstream servers I played on Nova and for me it was simply the best renewal experience I could ask for. Very polished server, hard rules against rmt and botting (never encountered one), balanced donations, enjoyable custom content, perfectly designed to contrast the kRo tendency of putting items behind paywalls. The population is nice too, I would definitely recommend to any player

The server has an active Staff and in usual they are quite available and provide good suport. Also a good point of the server is large number of events. Customization is something good becus official servers are far from perfect, but that customization have problems too. The biggests problems of the server in that moment is; PvP [include bg/woe] scenario not good, PvM content, in general, not challenging, Classes unbalanced.

I've played NRO for 2yrs and now stopped, thought it will be different from other servers and i was wrong, it's still RNG over and over, BG/pvp/WoE is massively customized that you won't even know what to use or do anymore. They implemented 17.2 a week ago and the put huge RNG wall in front of it, I don't suggest this server if you're casual player who can only play 1~2hrs a day cuz you will be left out far behind the others. Don't be fooled by online players, 80%vendors 5%duals and 15%players

On cyber monday I purchased some donor points as I was enjoying the server. An hour later the GMs made a short termed event for cyber monday giving extra nova points to donors. I mentioned my earlier purchase and they honored the bonus points. The server has tons of events and if you're bored of grinding has a lot to offer. It's in good fun. The donation items are nearly entirely from iRO. Any drop rate complaints are silly. You know the rate of the server when you sign up.

The community is nice, Gm always hosts events and this server has a community base on classes u play. woe / PVP (typical 1 hit what u expect for a 3rd job server? not 1 hit in woe and PVP) woe is not the best (only 1 castle) and woe draft only strong players got to play :(. but it's a really good server I really enjoy everything here. I hate in novaro is banning. banning player that dosen't even RTM sucks!. and they won't give evidence to that player that was banned. over all Its A great server.

Absolutely garbage GM staff. I joined the game to play with a friend who's played there for years and she gives me zeny. half an hour later while looking through market place and gearing myself out, I get banned. I go appeal the ban and im told I was "REAL MONEY TRADING" and they apparently had evidence and im banned without and discussion or debate. I continue to ask for evidence, tell them they have no evidence of something that didnt happen, but they end up banning me from the forums.

We'd beg to disagree, as punishing rulebreakers doesn't make us garbage. Placing bans isn't an activity we engage in to pass the time. It's merely something some players choose to bring upon themselves for no good reason. It's all rather simple: taking shortcuts has repercussions. You broke the rules by buying zeny from a RMT:er and didn't think you'd be caught. There's no room for talk after. The simple lesson for you to learn from this experience is to both read the rules and to follow them.

Too many customs and things are harder to get than official. Custom content wasn't even balanced and only cater to few classes. BG is dead. WOE is customize by guild with commissioners to their own favor. If they don't like it, they nerf it (rip melee RKS). GM who are players often leaked info to their own guilds. Some have insight on next update and have advantage on the market. Dying population too, people left for another servers. Support always have: where's GM? Not fun.

We're sorry to hear the server wasn't for you, and despite the blanket statements you threw our way, we hope you will find one you enjoy better. Adequately discussing each of the points would require far more space than there is, but most importantly it needs to be said that we would never keep staff who attempt or seek to profit from their position for themselves, their friends, their guilds, or anybody else. They would get fired without as much as a discussion due to breaching our GM rules.

Returning veteran WoE player. The server has potential but unfortunately the staff attempts to balance WoE/Pvp/BG around imbalanced MVP cards in an already difficult to balance game. Out of the 150-200 WoE players maybe only 5-10 get to play the actual game, the rest get instantly deleted and can't play on equal terms. Not going to further waste my guilds time in an unfair competition. Tip: Move FBH to tier 0 so people can actually play without needing GTB. MVP cards=noskill. Good PVM server

Wanted to renew my old review. things are still great, population keep growing everyday regardless of reviews, I guess thanks to our content creators. And everyone is eager for the new Monster Hunter update to come, including myself.
