Instance Dungeons are dungeon runs that are exclusive to your party, with primary examples being Endless Tower and Nidhoggr's Nest, official instances. VividRO offers a plethora of custom instances in order to provide more challenge to the game, increase access to headgears and other equipment, and grant valuable EXP. The following instances are planned for implementation PRIOR TO OPENING, unless stated otherwise. Re-entrance will be enabled. However, the cooldown will remain. Niflheim Instance (difficulty: hard) Glast Heim Instance (difficulty: medium-hard) Clocktower Instance (difficulty: medium) Wandering Guardian Instance (difficulty: very hard; future implementation) see: here Voracious Okolnir (difficulty: very hard; future implementation) see: here "Re-Renewal" refers to the process of implementing renewal content completely rebalanced for the pre-renewal experience. While renewal content has no place in a pre-renewal server, many servers make the mistake of implementing renewal-exclusive features without regards to the balance of a server. As such, monsters such as those in Scaraba Hole on many other servers posess improper stats, monster AI, and drops. VividRO will implement such content entirely from scratch, and it will be developed in order to provide some additional value to the Ragnarok experience while also including conservative custom content that aims to improve and expand on the PVM, PVP, and WoE experiences rather than alter their respective metagames for the worse. The following official RO maps/mobs are planned for implementation and full rebalancing PRIOR TO OPENING. These are open dungeons/fields and not instance (memorial) dungeons. Therefore, competition for monster spawns may exist. Byalan 6 (difficulty: medium) BiFrost (difficulty: hard) Scaraba Hole (difficulty: hard) Biolabs 4 (difficulty: very hard) Monster Invasions will occur on separated maps three times a day, at 04:00, 12:00, and 20:00. A plethora of themed monsters will be spawned in a map, providing great EXP and access to drops, along with a small chance to gain event coins from their drops. When the invasion monsters are cleared, an MVP monster will spawn, and the player to defeat it will be rewarded with a handful of event coins. Players may join Monster Invasions using @invasion. More information will come soon! VividRO will be providing a plethora of visual customization features in order to improve on the user experience. Whether through monster drops, the event shop, the voting shop, custom quests, and so on, VividRO will aim to constantly implement new looks for you! VividRO Exclusive Headgear Recolors A plethora of important or popular headgears have been given multiple colors to increase character customization and improve on visuals. You may click here for more information. More to come! Automated Events Poring Catcher Disguise Event Bomb Poring Dice Event Mushroom Finding No Potion PVP Event (coming soon!) Deathmatch PVP Event (coming soon!) King of Emperium (coming soon!) Competitive Features MVP Graves are implemented. Reflect Shield and Reject Sword have damaged capped to max HP in PVM environments. All food items now have a weight of 1. Elemental Sword abuse is disabled. +1 stat headgear enchants with a high cost and a very small chance to break the headgear. An expensive token can be used to guarantee that the item won’t be destroyed in the process. Telma will be upgraded into a cash shop in order to make purchasing BG materials simpler from a UI aspect. All donation headgears are accessible in-game through Battlegrounds, quests, or the event shop. Autohotkey (macros) and ROMedic are permitted in Battlegrounds and War of Emperium. Battlegrounds provides a small amount of Vivid Coins for participation. The requirement to join the Battlegrounds is level 90+ transcendent class, with two teams of 5 necessary. Battlegrounds automatically buffs the player with Blessing, Increase AGI, and Soul Link for Soul Linker class only. A Kill Streak announcer is implemented (with sound effects removed). War of Emperium provides custom enhanced castle treasures. God items are not available. PVP and MVP rankings can be found in Prontera. Vivid Coins are dropped by MVPs.
