Tomorrow’s weekly maintenance in Ragnarok Online Philippines will bring a new server and the 2-2 jobs!
Despite having planned for the 2-2 jobs to come out further this year, Electronics Extreme and ELITE announced earlier this month that it will be rolled out tomorrow along with a new server named Chaos.
The third server, Chaos, will provide a fresh start for new players that want to experience Ragnarok Online or for players that just want to escape from the current crowded servers. It’s a much-needed addition to the game, especially for those that haven’t put in as much time in either Thor or Loki.
A preregistration page has been up for Chaos and by preregistering, players will receive some items for free. The registration will be up until 8:59 AM tomorrow, September 27, 2017.
The 2-2 jobs offer more variety as far as jobs are concerned, whether it be to War of Emperium or just everyday leveling or PvM (Player vs Monsters).
For those that are unfamiliar with the 2-2 jobs, these are alternative jobs that players can class up from the already familiar first jobs. The 2-2 jobs are Crusader, Sage, Rogue, Alchemist, and Monk.
The Crusader, unlike the Knight, is a more of a caster than a warrior while still offering tankiness to the party. Some of the skills that differentiate the Crusader from the Knight are Grand Cross and Sacrifice (Devotion). Grand Cross deals Holy property hybrid damage to all enemies in a cross-shaped area. While Sacrifice allows the Crusader to take damage in place of an ally.
The Sage is more of an anti-Mage and a supportive class, compared to its damage oriented mage cousin, the Wizard. Some of the skills of a Sage includes its ability to endow party members with a certain element, Free Cast which allows the Sage to walk while casting spells, and Dispell which removes all buffs from targets.
The Rogue is a flexible alternative to the Assassin but thrives better in PvP or War of Emperium. The ability to strip the armor, helm, shield, and weapons of their opponents makes the Rogue a devastating job.
The Alchemist is the alternative job from Merchant that utilizes a lot of potions. Similar to the Blacksmith, Alchemists have crafting but in the form of potions instead of various weapons. One of the most unique things about the Alchemist is their special pet, Homunculus that can assist the Alchemist whether through support, damage, or a tank.
Lastly, the Monk is an offensive alternative job to the Priest. The biggest selling point of the Monk is its devastating skill, Guillotine Fist (or Asura Strike) which uses all its Spirit Spheres to deal massive damage to the target. Along with this, the Monk’s mobility through Snap makes it fun to use.
As of writing this, there is no additional information whether new maps will be introduced into the game along with the new jobs and Chaos. For more updates follow their Facebook or visit their website.
