Here's a brief FAQ on Ragnarok RE:START and all its fun components!
What is Ragnarok RE:START?
Ragnarok RE:START is a special server that will launch with game content only consisting of the Rune Midgard Kingdom. Over time, each future episode will be released onto the server. This allows players to enjoy the game content as it evolved over time.
What content is on the server?
Ragnarok RE:START will launch with only the Rune Midgard kingdom. The merchants of Prontera, Payon, Morocc, Alberta, and Geffen will all be ready and waiting to do business with adventurers of all types.
Will there be an Item Mall?
Yes! The Ragnarok RE:START item mall will offer a variety of cosmetic items, consumables, and other useful items. Almost everything available in the item mall can also be earned through game play.
Why do I need a new account?
Ragnarok RE:START is a new kind of server with its own unique settings and systems, and we are treating it as a whole new game. A new account is required so we can bring a unique experience with its own item mall and pricing schemes.
What happened to my old characters?
Characters made on previous servers still exist, but they will not be playable on or transferable to Ragnarok RE:START. However if you are looking for them and you previously played on iRO, your characters should still exist on their servers! Just head on over to either Chaos, Thor, or Classic Loki using the normal client download and installation links.
Will there be other servers?
Currently there are no plans to launch other progression servers. However, if Ragnarok RE:START is popular, we may end up launching a new server in the future.
What is VIP?
VIP is a paid subscription service that boosts your play experience with Ragnarok RE:START. Accounts with an active VIP subscription receive boosts such as extra experience points, increased item drop rate, reduced death penalty, increased storage, special item exchange systems, and much more.
How long will the server last?
The first re start server will receive monthly updates as it approaches the Ragnarok of today. There are no plans to merge or close this server down.
How is the gameplay different from the existing servers?
Ragnarok RE:START removes the level difference penalty from Renewal and rebalances all first and second class skills after cast delay timers. Most monsters are returned to their pre-Renewal spawn locations and statistics. Lastly - Izlude, Alberta, Prontera, and Morroc cities have not yet undergone their drastic changes.
What are the game mechanics?
Ragnarok RE:START uses renewal damage and defense formulas.
Who can play?
Generally any one who can currently register and play iRO will be able to register a Ragnarok Online RE:START account. However, unfortunately due to our obligations with overseas partners, users registering from the Philippines will not be to create new Ragnarok Online RE:START accounts.
When can I play?
Users may begin playing around 5:30pm on 6/27/2017 as part of our Headstart event! The server will officially launch on 7/5/2017

We will be using the current refine rates. Refinement items such as ore will be available from both the cash shop and in game activity.
Can items be refined beyond 10?
What will be the sources of MVP Cards?
From game play only.
What is the update schedule.?
We will be following a very similar update path to the "REVO-Classic" style servers.
