Exclamation RO2 Reboot Information

This is just a repaste of news from the past couple of months pertaining to the relaunch of RO2 in Korea. For those who may have missed it:

The name "Legend of the Second" implies that it is a sequel to RO2 and not just a different game.

They've gone back to the basics. They scrapped the new systems; the stupid character bound weapon leveling system, the new classes and skills systems, the new stats system, the dimago/ellr/norman race and etc.

Returning are the card system, pet system, the stats system, the old class system: Swordsman/Knight, Mage/Wizard, Archer/Hunter, Thief, Acolyte/Priest (unfortunately, the merchant class does not return). RO2 will have some new contents too such as a more balanced dueling/pvp system, living system, weaving and much more. RO2 is no longer a separate game from RO1 but a true sequel.

Remember this old RO2 Art?

Too bad for you if you liked it. They've changed their art direction. You are no longer childish chibi characters but teenagers/full grown mature adults. And it looks wonderful.

Classes appear to be redesigns from RO1 instead of fresh new designs. This is a good thing since it retains the feel and flavor of RO1.

They also have a new artist (looks nothing like the work of MJL) and the art is absolutely gorgeous. (check out the official site for larger pics)

Instead of just keeping a Poring while redesigning every other monster in and call it RO2, the new RO2 now has old monsters that return in glorious 3D. These are the monsters we know and have grown to love. It is truly an RO sequel.

Yoko Kanno (music composer) is still on the project, and her music is still mesmerizing. You can hear a glimpse of one of her new soundtracks on the official site.

The current RO2 servers will shut down on August 2nd. The new RO2 Closed Beta testing will begin on August 31st. <- use this link to skip the flash intro. <- News link
There is an ongoing discussion about the reboot going on in the RO General section. I encourage anyone who was formerly familiar with and didn't like the previous incarnation of RO2 to read up on the new one.
If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.
