Improved Loot System
Basically, the current loot system in Ragnarok counts the chance of the killer and bonuses from the killer only, it makes using a bubble gum or any other boosting item for drop pointless if you're not the killer. And basically pushes the entire loot that was rolled through RNG through the party lootshare feature. Which basically removes loot from the killer and gives it someone else. Which is actually extremely discouraging to party and share loot with someone.
To promote partying and working together to achieve goals I rewrote the entire system how it works.
Basically if you're in a party the new loot system automatically takes over. It will check if you're inside an instance, what you're fighting and such. Based on these information it'll now check several factors...
If the party member that is with the killer has any kind of autoloot active [ Alootid, aloottype, autoloot ].
-> If it's active enable the roll for the specific items that match that category and or all categories ( @autoloot 100 ).
-> Otherwise no extra loot will be generated.
If the party member is participating in the fight or is a simple leecher who never does anything.
-> No loot will be generated for that person.
If the party member is an alt of another person of that party (check several different things)
-> No loot will be generated if that person is not a real player.
If the party member is out of range and or over a certain range away
-> No loot will be generated if its out of range.
If the monster that is killed is specifically told not to share any kind of special loot
-> No extra loot will be generated in that case.
If the party member is dead or not
-> No loot will be generated.
If the party member is not on the same map
-> No loot will be generated.
The last check will now check if any of the party members fall through or not. In case of everyone failing -> Old loot system will be pushed to be used. In case of not everyone failing -> The new loot system will be pushed to be used.
Now let's get into details of what exactly happens:
The drop information of every party member is read and applied to their own drop, they don't stack with each other and are applied separately.
So in the case of the above, this poring will drop roughly 3 Jellopies that are instantly given to the party members. Without autoloot no extra loot will be generated so you'll never see a poring drop xxx items on the floor, at most only the original drop will fall onto the floor.
In case of an MvP, every loot except for the MvP Card will be rolled through the new party system in case of an instance and depending on party settings might be shared through the party interface. Otherwise on a normal MvP outside of an instance the loot system will default to basic and no extra loot will be generated.
This way, working on your character and using your own items for bonus loot chance, loot chances will be applied. Plus it encourages party play in higher rates instances or even lower ones. Even normal grinding for an item.
Compared to 10 people fighting every monster on their own and 10 fighting together with the correct settings, the amount generated will be in the end the same. Except it's easier for everyone involved and even helps classes that can't farm easily alone such as supporters. However some of the rules mentioned above are in place to not cause any weird farming situations where one person would abuse xx alts to farm items.
Player chosable exp rates
When you make a character you get prompted upon doing the newbie area if you want to change your rates.
At any point after that you can still change them by typing @baserate or @jobrate 1-100.
Once you have chosen your exp rate it stays that way until changed.
Being in a party with another person with another rate chosen does not affect your exp. You will still get exp based on your own rate, no matter who kills the monster.
Advanced Looting is a newly implemented system that gives you a permanent buff to increase your dropchance depending on what rates you use while leveling.
This system gets put in place upon reaching Base Level 175.
[ Note: The character has to use the main class, NOT a dual class ].
How does it work for loot?
These rates stack together with a bubble gum but are not boosted by a bubble gum.
This rate is a constant and is automatically applied to commands such as @mobinfo.
You have no bubble gum, you leveled 1-175 at 1x.
Jellopy basic chance 25%.
Jellopy Advanced Loot system bonus 12.5%
What bonuses are there?
- This will only apply upon reaching Base Level 175 on your main class, not dual class. When reaching max level on the dual class this system completly ignores it.
|EXP rates used||Drop bonus|
Anything I should look out for!?!
- This means you cannot purchase a Dual Class to reach the maximum level faster.
- You have to set your preferred EXP rate at the start of this character and NEVER change it until you've reached the maximum level of 175 and you have the Icon.
- Changing your EXP rate at any point might remove your bonus fully depending on the rate you selected, it does not matter if it was for a second or an hour.
- You can use @ratecheck to check the bonus you'll receive upon reaching max level.
- Upon reaching maximum level it'll only select the highest rate you've ever used for the bonus.
A new account made on a computer with an unique hardware ID can get freebies when they create their first character ever.
Some of the items you will get includes:
- 1 Free account-bound costume from .
- 250,000 Zeny.
Every character after that gets:
Every account has 10 basic storages. Each storage contains a limit of 600.
You can rename the storages in the Main Office.
Call Storage is a skill that is unlocked by using 100 Kafra Cards at the NPC Storage Master inside Main Office (@go office). This skill is an accountwide skill, once unlocked by one char it's usable by all other characters on that account. Aswell as future chracters.
Once learned you can find it in your ETC tab in your skilltree. You can also access it by typing @storage/@storage1-10.
Every 1 hour that you are online you get 2 cashpoints.
Every 2 hours that you are online you get 1 Moonlight Coin.
Note 1: The hours you're online count upwards. You are online 1 hour today and 1 tomorrow = 2 hours total.
Note 2: Venders are a special case, they're inside the hourly counting table but differently counted and rewarded.
-- Vendors get 1 coin every 12 hours.
Note 3: Relogging or disconnecting resets the timer.
Note 4: This has no limitation to IP or Computer.
Any monster killed, (except MVP slaves, mini boss slaves or any kind of slave), has a chance to grant you a world drop.
|1x Moonlight Coin||0.04%|
|1x Costume Treasure||0.01%|
|1x Enchant Ore||0.01%|
|1x Token of Siegfried||0.01%|
|10x Kafra Card||0.01%|
|1x Bubble Gum||0.05%|
|1x Enriched Elunium||0.05%|
|1x Enriched Oridecon||0.05%|

|1x Soul Mastery Scroll||0.0001%|
|1x Specific Costume Treasure||0.0001%|
|1x Alternate Outfit Ticket||0.0001%|
Note: These drops have no level requirement, meaning a lvl 1 novice can find them.
Note 2: These items are added instantly into the inventory.
Note 3: All these items are not bound, they can be traded / storaged / guild storaged and so on.
Once the total amount of monsters killed on the server have reached 500,000 and 12 hours of cooldown period have passed the system will automatically summon a random world boss.
There is an NPC in @go 0 that shows the current amount of overall kills and if there is any time left on the cooldown, otherwise it will allow you to warp to the world boss map.
These bosses do not drop items in a normal fashioned way, but instead will reward the player with a World Boss Box based on their damage rank sent instantly to your mail.
There is no limitation as to how many players may receive a reward so even 1 damage makes you eligible. However if the boss is not killed, you'll not receive any reward at all.
Note: There is no level / class / party / guild requirement to participate in this.

Everything has been added to this command, fields, towns and dungeons.
We have Alternative Outfits for most of the classes in Ragnarok Online, the newest being Shadow Chaser.
