Great server with active Discord channel, with admin and server owners that are on most of the day. Happy Hour Battlegrounds and Draft WoE give PvP players a lot to strive for. Cheers Kiwi and the rest of the Essence admin!

eRO's return that we needed but did not know that. As in the past it is highly customized, what sometimes is problematic, but the team seems to be tackling all problems one by one. Very friendly staff, events both automated and GM held. I think there is some more work to be done on the BG arena, as it has been altered a few times, but the work being done is visible and that is important to me. Highly recommend playing here!

After last 2 updates the server when really bad, population is dropping, something crashes BG happy hour. We went from 3 guilds in draft woe to just 2, guild cometition gets worst after the changes to trying to class balance. Not enough tester in the test server makes the live one get screw.

Hey Leir -- Thanks for your review. We are very aware of the issue regarding BG, and as we've said in multiple announcements, its hard to debug on a small scale, and things tend to happen in BG in a "perfect storm" type of scenario. As for guild competition, quite the contrary -- Today we hit a peak of over 350 online during Draft WoE. In addition to that, Draft WoE is simply that, Draft. It isn't Guild based and relies on Volunteers to lead. Each team had a total of 28 players. Thanks again.

I have been playing Ragnarok online since (uff)I think 2007. I have always enjoyed the capacity of playing with your friends. Back to years ago, EssenceRo has been the server I have enjoyed the most (and my friends too). We were sad when it closed. When we knew it opened again we were so excited. Now it is back! With nice costumes, balanced skills and characters. MVP's and WOE are fair, balanced and fun, great minigames. No pay-to-win. GM are available and willing to help all the time. Join us!

I played the 1st version of eRO, and I must say, this server surely brings back all the memories I had back then. If you are looking for a friendly, heart-warming server to spend all of your free time, this is the right place.

We played Essence back years ago and loved it. I have to say even though you wouldn't think it could be better, it is. Available GMs that are friendly and easy to reach when you need anything. The players are helpful and friendly too! Love this server and hoping it stays for a long time. Events are fun and all inclusive. Come play with us, you will be happy you did!

Finally a server that actually cares about its players! I've been playing RO on and off for a bunch of years, and I have to say that this server has tons and tons of features. BG is different and there's no CRAZY grind. BG is fun and exciting, woe is too! They do draft woe every sunday that always has a huge crowd and is super fun to play. Totes recommend!

As an old returning player of v1 & v2 eRO I was disappointed. Stats/rates are IMO spot on for a midrate but that's a product of OG eRO. No 3rd jobs so if you were hoping for that, go play renewal I guess. I got the impression that people just log on for BG happy hour then leave. "It's 2020 RO, no one wants to quest/farm". Stale automated events, no GM hosted ones which were good on v2. Has potential and I hope it improves, but OG eRO was one of a kind, and unfortunately it might stay that way.

Hey there, thanks so much for your review! We're doing our best to re-create the code from eRO v1 & 2, but due to upgrades in the back-end code, and without having the original code, we can't replicate everything 100%. We have a bunch of gm-hosted events coming up, and are actively doing a Wiki event that's been ongoing throughout the past month.
