It's been more than 2 years since Ragnarok Online shut down in the Philippines. Most of our accounts were migrated to iRO with most of our gears wiped out. Why did they wiped it out? Because pRO has been saturated with high end gears such us high upgraded gears, Boss Cards and Godly Items. Taking away these items will somehow balance out the playing grounds when people migrates to iRO.
I quit the game after I have attempted to play in iRO. It takes a lot of time and effort just to organize my things. Our Kafra in Valkyrie was set as a second storage when it transferred to iRO which will be locked when the premium expires. Transferring all my things to the main storage on 3 migrated accounts is hard. It's like I will a lot a big part of my life just to set-up things so I got lazy. Most of my friends does not intended to play on the server too so I quit the game. I literally cut myself off to any Ragnarok related stuff even my blog.
I was hopeful for Tree of Savior to rekindle the adventure feeling that I have but the game for me is only exciting on job tree and skill building. For most parts I feel like it is a chore to play the game because I only log-in to do the dungeon and mission. Socializing in-game is almost non-existent. FPS dropping when a lot of skills is being uses is also an issue for me.

Card system is a classic feature of Ragnarok Online where it is still being updated every now and then. Cards are specifically dropped by the monster it represents. For example a Poring Card is exclusively being dropped by Poring monsters. But of course at present day there are other means of getting this cards aside from looting it from the monster itself. kRO had been generous in updating the card system to include various cards for Nightmare Clock Tower.

Patchnotes are posted and the servers are up.
There is a shocking news today which is the nerf on the godly item Megingjard. The bonus strength was removed making the item less powerful. I'm not sure what are the GMs thinking because as far as I remember there is no such change on other servers. The nerf on the god item will make it possible less powerful than other items such as perfectly enchanted RWC pendants with Gold Scaraba Card or the Bakonawa Tattoo. I hope the GMs will re-consider their decision.
Aside from that most of the events on the patchnotes are regular events. Read the rest of the patchnotes after the break.
