1000 years of peace have reigned, the world has forgotten the horrors of the age of myth. Such peace can never last forever and evil waits patiently. The first signs of the evil awakenings were the friendly monsters turning aggressive; followed soon after by demons attacking and the dead rising from their graves. Heroes appeared to beat back the invasions until the fateful day that Satan Morocc destroyed the peaceful town of Morroc, his freedom granted by the insane and corrupt humans of Midgard. The heroes re-gathered themselves and pushed back with everything they had but only a stalemate was possible. The delicate seals that protect the world from spilling into complete chaos weaken and break; only the knowledge and power from the age of myth can save Midgard from certain doom. Are you one of the heroes of legend? Can you and your allies push back the threat of total annihilation and protect Midgard from the final Ragnarok?

Ragnarok Online has traditionally been a Monthly Subscription based game for access to game accounts; but now it 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 ³VIP² 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 WarpPortal Account. You must bind your old Ragnarok Account to it, update the password, then login and play! Any concerns or questions regarding special circumstances can usually be found by searching the Knowledge Base and asking the Customer Service Team a question via the Ticket System.
