Ragnarok Online: The Fractured Realms - ROTFR
General information regarding classes gameplay, limitations and workaround to some features.
ROTFR is the first server designed to enable different playstyles depending on your choices. You can use the dual class system to create different and special builds, there are many unique combinations with amazing potential and viability, even a meme build can work on the right hands! Check the Getting Started page for useful information!
To unlock a sub class, you need to get any class to level 175 or higher then rebirth to a novice or high novice, you can then set any previous class as a sub class (or main class if your current class is lv175 or higher).
- IMPORTANT: WHILE SUPER NOVICE CAN BE A SUB CLASS AND HAVE A SUB CLASS THEY NEITHER GIVE NOR RECEIVE SKILLS. THIS IS A LIMITATION OF THE GAME AND CAN'T BE FIXED. IF YOU CHANGE TO SUPER NOVICE, KEEP IT IN MIND!
- If your subclass allows dual wielding (Assassin/Kagerou/Oboro) and you cant equip your 2nd weapon, travel to another map and try again, sometimes it requires a data update to work.
- Don't forget to pick correctly between novice and high novice on your second rebirth, or you might be locked until Lv 175 with the wrong variation (Genetic and Genetic Transcendent are different classes).
- You can wear all items of your subclass, even class restricted gear, except weapons.
- You can only use weapons from your main class.
- You can dual wield if your sub job allows it.
- Most skills don't have weapon requirements, you can throw arrows with books or empty hands for example.
- Some catalysts and ammo required for skills are removed.
- You can use the Bio5 headgear of your sub job.
- Keep in mind buff synergies for sub class, like mystical amplify from warlock for arch bishop for massive holy damage for example.
- Variable Cast time for all skills changed from using (Dex*2 + Int*1) to using (Agi*2 + Dex*1)
- After cast delay reduction for all skills now use (Dex*2 + Agi*1)
- Magic can now miss and requires Hit just like Physical (it has a higher base hit chance than normal attacks)
