What kind of Pirate are you?

Throughout the ages, Midgardians have held a certain fascination with Pirates, and is it any wonder why? Perhaps it is the romantic freedom of the open Seas, or the roguish grin that they do better than even the roguieish rogue. But no matter why everyone wants to be a pirate, if even a little bit!

For some reason the Kafra staff spent alot of time trying to cast many enchantments on a special Red Pirate Bandana they found on an exploration journey on the open ocean. Unfortunately the one spell they didn't put on it is one of permanence!

The special enchantments on the Red Pirate Bandana will only last until June 16, but its normal effects will stay forever!

Helpful guide for patching up to Brasilis
We have updated to VIP system and Brasilis on April 6th. There are 2 options available for patching correctly.

Regardless if you have freshly installed the October 2010 client, or have been playing for quite some time and patching every week, you will have the same patch methods.

Patching using the normal Patch Client:

  1. Navigate to your Ragnarok installation folder,
  2. Right click on the folder and make sure "Read-Only" is UN-CHECKED, then apply.
  3. Enter the folder, and right click the "renewal.exe" and choose Run as Administrator
  4. The Ragnarok.exe, ragexe.exe and the data.grf should all get updated to April 6th.
  5. From now on Run "Ragnarok.exe" to patch and play RO.

Key points for the auto patch method: Patch is ~24mb, permissions are tricky as you are overwriting files. If the files dates aren't updated then you are not patched!

Patching using the Manual Patch Client:

  1. Download the Manual Patch to your Hard Drive.
  2. Navigate to your Ragnarok installation folder,
  3. Right click on the folder and make sure "Read-Only" is UN-CHECKED, then apply.
  4. Extract the Manual patch into the RO installation folder, allowing it to overwrite files.
  5. From now on Run "Ragnarok.exe" to patch and play RO.

Don't forget to update your shortcuts to point to the Ragnarok.exe patch launcher!

In the next week or so a freshly made client will be made available that has VIP and Brasilis included. The small patch size was the reason we didn't make a fresh client yet.
