Ragnarok Online goes free-to-play

By on April 7, 2011

We’ve got some good news for all those that wanted to play Ragnarok Online but were put off by its monthy subscription. According to a press release we got from Gravity, the game will be free from Monthly Subscription with an option for a VIP Package that offers improved experience rates, monster drops, larger storage capacity and access to special NPCs and areas.


Ragnarok Online offers three servers to choose from. Ymir server is the VIP server containing all Veteran Subscription based characters from 2003 to present.  Perfect for those returning heroes that want to rejoin their friends on their adventures and PVP action. Yggdrasil (once a Monthly Subscription based server) and Valkyrie (a free to play server) will both become completely open to account and character creation for players that want to give Ragnarok Online a test drive; with Yggdrasil being the newest server (launched October 2010).  Yggdrasil has the youngest characters and newest economy which makes it the ideal ³fresh-start² server.  You can still purchase a VIP package and play on these servers as well.

Special benefits await players that choose to make their account VIP such as:

  • 1.5x Experience rate
  • 1.5x Monster drop rate
  • Increased Kafra Storage
  • Less experience loss upon death
  • Access to special areas and Buff NPCs
  • Access to create characters on all 9 character slots

All that is needed to play Ragnarok Online is a Warp Portal Account/. You must bind your old Ragnarok Account to it, update the password, then login and play!
