  1. The return of the Amazing Summer Race is here at last! It's the event that you've been waiting for! The return of TalonRO's wildly popular Amazing Summer Race comes back to Port Malaya with all new locations, challenges, and a special new challenge called the "Fast & First." Plus Summer Cocktails and more! BEGINS JULY 23 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 13 The Amazing Summer Race follows the same format as it did last year - which you can read about in detail below - but we've made a few changes to make this year's race even more exciting and fun! We've added tons of new headgears into the boxes, plus a brand-new minigame within the Amazing Summer Race: Fast & First! This minigame will track your progress all summer-long to earn prizes that no one else can get but these winners. First off, it is strictly forbidden to use more than 1 forum account to get badges. You can get up to 4 badges per forum account per Amazing Summer Race round. Using the forum account of a friend or family member to get more badges is forbidden and can lead to a permanent ban. Read on to learn what's new in this year's Amazing Summer Race: We've added new locations and changed the old locations to each region of the Summer Race! New quests have been added into this year's event, including updated monster hunting and search-based quests. We'll let you know when a round will close with a special announcement, so you'll know when a round is about to end. We've changed up the prizes of the boxes to include some amazing new items, costumes, and more surprises! We've also added a new feature called Fast & First, Find the NPC first and get exclusive rewards all summer long! This year, you'll be able to join an active race round up to four times per forum account. The Amazing Summer Race this year begins once again in Port Malaya at the World Race Center Headquarters. Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members to begin the journey of the season. The goal of this year's event is to collect one of each special regional badge by performing a quest that takes place all over Midgard and beyond! Players can earn badges by participating in the quest being offered by the World Quest Center staff. However, each quest will take place at a random map, and the regions will rotate. Your goal is to eventually successfully complete one of each type of quest, and decide to turn those badges in for a prize or bet them all on a harder quest whose rewards will be even greater! A specific Summer Race Quest will begin when you hear a global announcement that a regional quest has opened! To accept and begin this quest, quickly make your way into Port Malaya to speak with the WQC staff NPCs, who will then assign you the region and the quest. Once a quest has been announced, the fun begins! Speak with the World Quest Center staff and embark on the quest. Each quest will pertain to a specific region: a forest map, a desert map, a dungeon map, or a tropical map. If you accept the quest, the WQC staff member will tell you where to go to begin the quest. Your overall goal with these quests is to complete it within one hour, so you'll need to race across the world to finish in that time frame! Each region of the world corresponds to a specific badge. The Kordt Badge is for all quests performed on a forest-style area. The Sograt Badge represents all quests on a desert area. Darmain Badges are for those quests which take place in a dungeon (though not to worry - all Darmain Badges can be earned in dungeons which are open-access), and finally Kokomo Badges, which can be earned from completing quests on a tropical-style and tundra-filled areas. While you'll know the general location of where to go, the WQC member will not tell you exactly where or who to speak with. However, your first step is to locate a special NPC on that map who will give you your task. Your job will be to locate that specific quest manager for the quest that you've been assigned on your given map. Once you've found the NPC you are assigned to speak with, the race is on! The NPC will assign you one of perhaps several types of quests. They might include killing a specific number of a certain monster, collecting a number of special items, or working to locate a specific NPC across the world. The quests are designed to be completed by most players of various levels as well as newbie friendly! Once you've completed the task, report back to the same quest manager to finish the quest within the one hour. If you've done as they have asked within the one hour time frame, then you'll receive a passing mark for the quest! Report back to the World Quest Center in Port Malaya and speak with the WQC Staff to collect your regional badge! Once you have one of each type of badge, you can trade your badges in for a special prize box - but we'll cover that in a moment! If you've decided that you're ready for even more questing action, you can elect to turn in all four of your regional badges (one of each type) to embark on a special advanced quest! The advanced quest type will correspond to the badge quest type open. For example, if Sograt Badges are available this hour and you decide to embark on an advanced quest, you'll be off to perform the Sograt advanced quest! An advanced quest will cost you one of each type of regular badge, and if you fail the quest you will lose those four badges! The advanced quests are more involved to complete and must be done within one hour as well. The advanced quests are completed just like regular quests, but they will be more demanding. Instead of completing one quest, you must complete two quests in the same time frame. If you complete the advanced quest within the one hour time frame, you'll receive an Advanced Badge! These Advanced Badges will allow you access to even greater prizes this summer. The rewards for completing the summer quest are indeed great! In order to claim yours, you'll need one of each type of regional badge. This means you'll need one Kordt, one Sograt, one Darmain, and one Kokomo badge to claim your Summer Prize Box! If you've elected to go for the advanced quests, you'll need one of each type of Advanced Badge to receive an Advanced Summer Prize Box. What's inside both the regular and advanced summer prize boxes? That's for you to discover! However, we've packed them full of some amazing goodies which you'll receive by chance. It might be a special new costume inside, or maybe some cool new equipment, or even a rare and previously unreleased item! What will you get? We hope that it's something great! This year, we have a special new feature to the Amazing Summer Race! Although the goal of the race is to find the NPC who will give you your special quest, there are special benefits this year to being the first person to find that NPC in a round! If you are the first person to locate the NPC, a special message will go up across all of Midgard letting people know the NPC has been found by someone. Furthermore, you'll receive a special reward for being first as well. Now, here's where it gets fun: the more times that you are the first person to find the NPC, the better your rewards will get! Finally, the WQC staff will be taking count of all the people who find the NPC first. Be one of the top five people who found the NPC first and you'll win a special and rare costume - one that you can ONLY get from being one of the Fast & First Five! It wouldn't be summer on TalonRO without the return of the Summer Cocktail Making event as well! On every field, dungeon and city map on the server, there will be one Event Galapago walking around. They're fairly easy to kill so every player, new or old, should be able to participate. When killing an Event Galapago there's a chance that it will drop various ingredients for special Summer Cocktails. Examples are Tequila, Vodka, Lime, Rum, etc. The spawn time of the Galapagos is around 30-40 minutes, so it's a good idea to explore the world of Ragnarok Online and perhaps visit places you've never visited before! You can do some pretty awesome things with these as well! You will find our Summer Bartender in Port Malaya this year. He will be able to mix various cocktails for you that all require different ingredients. It's up to you to decide which ones you like most. Hunt for Event Galapagos, trade ingredients with other players, it's all possible! This year's cocktails include the following: Spammers Heaven Increase ASPD by 10% for 45 minutes Seductive Bathory Reduce Cast Time by 10% for 45 minutes Sting's Slap 10% resistance to Physical Attacks for 30 minutes Blossoming Geographer 10% resistance to Magic Attacks for 30 minutes Drip of Yggdrasil 10% EXP Boost for 30 minutes + No EXP loss when dying (30 min.; effect wears off after you die) Venatu's Beep Increase ATK by 5% for 30 minutes Myst Case's Surprise Increase MATK by 5% for 30 minutes Matyr's Mix Makes you walk fast for a duration of 45 minutes Our Amazing Summer Race is indeed amazing, but it won't last forever! This event begins on July 23, 2015 and ends on September 13, 2015! We hope that you enjoy this special kick-off to summer on TalonRO and that you have fun with friends completing the Amazing Summer Race. Enjoy and, as always, Happy Gaming!

  5. TalonRO's newest haunted festival has landed! For centuries, each annual Festival of Witches has been hidden from the view of the living - and each year has always produced a clear winner between the two rival schools. But, for the first time in nearly three centuries following the dark era of Ragnarok, an unprecedented tie between the two schools emerged on Halloween night! In order to break the tie between their students, the witches have extended their festival for the first time and opened its magic to the residents of Midgard. Since the adventurers of Midgard are new, their fresh take on the ancient festival will surely yield a clear winner - and it will be up to you to fight for a side in the end in this year's Halloween celebration: the Festival of Witches! You're officially invited to this year's Festival of Witches! Long considered a hidden festival of the witching academies, the two most prestigious schools of the dark arts have found themselves bound into an ancient traditional festival and competition to see which school's pupils have gained true sight into the powers of the dead. The Necromancers and the Spirit Channelers, Niflheim's two most powerful practitioners of the dark arts, have used the time of Halloween to test their finely-honed mystic arts in friendly competition for bragging rights in their mastery of magic. The Festival of Witches This year's Halloween event - the Festival of Witches - is an all-new seasonal event now available to play For full details, visit our Official Events section of the forums and learn all about this year's Festival event!

We're hoping that all of the TalonRO community is having an amazing summer, and this year we're pleased to present our special Tam Tam's Tiki Bar Calendar Giveaway!

This special calendar marks each day throughout the whole month of August - and behind each day on the calendar is often something nice and refreshing for the summer months in Midgard! We're thanking our entire community with special small items that can be obtained each day.

To receive all daily gifts, you'll need to visit the Tiki Bar Calendar and the NPC in Comodo each day from now throughout the days in August. We hope that you'll enjoy our special summer calendar throughout the month of August - it's all part of our saying thanks for being a part of the TalonRO community, and we hope that you have a fantastic summer!

  14. The return of TalonRO's wildly popular Amazing Summer Race brings the action back to Port Malaya for a season of intense team fun! The Amazing Summer Race this year begins once again in Port Malaya at the World Race Center Headquarters. Visit our special Summer 2017 Event site below for full details (optimized viewing on desktop devices)! Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members to begin the journey of the season. After registration, you'll need to find the person in each region who can start your quest after starting in Port Malaya. From there, this person will be hiding in one of four regions. Once they are located, you'll begin a quick quest. Collect one of each special regional badge by performing these quests that takes place all over Midgard and beyond! Your goal is to eventually successfully complete one of each type of quest, and decide to turn those badges in for a prize or bet them all on a harder quest whose rewards will be even greater! Our Summer 2017 Event feature site has even more details about the Summer Race this year, but we want to also recap some important changes to this year's race from previous races for those who have participated in the past: Summer Race Changes This year's Summertime Box and Advanced Summertime Box have been refreshed to a new version as a distinct item from prior year's boxes. This is to allow all players to have a fresh start this year earning new rewards, so everyone starts from the same place in this year's event! Event Galapagos have been removed from several common maps, and have been added some new maps to refresh their spawning locations. New item gathering, monster hunting and NPC finding quests have been added throughout the Amazing Summer Race this year - we hope that you enjoy these new challenges! NPC names and locations of various field agents have been moved and renamed as well to keep this year's Amazing Summer Race fresh and fun. Added more frequent ending time announcements to inform players when a race is about to end. Added a feature which will warp players away to the Race Officer. This is designed to prevent that area from getting overcrowded. You'll now be able to exchange multiple sets of badges, rather than one set at a time, for your convenience. The World Quest Center Race Officer will now display the number of missions you are able to continue to perform on your forum account. For those participating in the Fast 5 NPC finder competition throughout the Amazing Summer Race event, this year's prize is now the Little Aquarium Costume! Advanced Missions will now require three (3) missions rather than the previous two (2) mission amount. The Amazing Summer Race has some important rules we'd like to remind you to follow! Be sure to pay close attention so you're able to play effectively and fairly in this year's race. Rules for the Amazing Summer Race USE ONLY ONE MASTER ACCOUNT FOR THE RACE Please remember: it is strictly forbidden to use more than one (1) master account to get badges. Using the master account of a friend or family member to get more badges is forbidden and can lead to a permanent ban! BADGE EXCHANGE All race badges will be account-bound - but if you're too heavy with one kind of badge and need one of a different type, you can exchange that with the Race Staff for three of an existing badge type! The missions and regions of the Amazing Summer Race are many - so we want to make sure that you have a preview of what you're getting into before you embark upon the race! Regions Kordt Forest: The Kordt Forest is for all quests performed in a forest-type of area. You might find yourself deep within Mt. Mjolnir, or perhaps out roaming the Prontera Fields - just don't get lost in the woods! Sograt Desert: The Sograt Desert areas aptly refer to any area which is primarily desert. Although the Sograt Desert is the largest desert in Midgard, it is by no means the only one. Be sure to bring lots of water on your journey! Kokomo Tropics & Tundra: The Kokomo Tropics & Tundra are any collection of tropical or tundra areas around Midgard. While it might be tempting to bring along the summer suits and sunscreen, keep your eyes open when a quest is in this area! Darmian Dungeons: The Darmian Dungeon region refer to all quests which take place in a dungeon. Don't worry: all of the dungeon quests will be in open-access dungeons...though safety is not guaranteed when venturing in here! Missions Monster Hunting: Monster hunting is a staple of the Amazing Race! On these quests, you'll need to defeat as many of a certain type of monster as you can! Searching: If the regional Amazing Race staff member assigns you to a monster hunting quest, then you had better gear up for a quick run through of those monsters! You'll need to do so before the time is up as well! Item Gathering: In these quests, your searching isn't done yet! You'll have to hunt across Midgard to find a special individual to complete this assignment. Don't forget about this year's wonderful Summer Cocktails, either! Galapagos will be roaming about in special areas with ingredients to make wonderful summer cocktails - an array of which offer some special stat boosting effects (to say nothing of being refreshing on the beach, right?). Good luck earning and making some of these wonderful cocktails below: Summer Cocktails Spammers Heaven: Increase ASPD by 10% for 45 minutes. Seductive Bathory: Reduce Cast Time by 10% for 45 minutes. Sting's Slap: 10% resistance to Physical Attacks for 30 minutes. Blossoming Geographer: 10% resistance to Magic Attacks for 30 minutes. Drip of Yggdrasil: 10% EXP Boost for 30 minutes + No EXP loss when dying (30 min.; effect wears off after you die). Venatu's Beep: Increase ATK by 5% for 30 minutes. Myst Case's Surprise: Increase MATK by 5% for 30 minutes. Matyr's Mix: Makes you walk fast for a duration of 45 minutes. Old Dracula's Mix: 15% more Job EXP for 30 minutes. Raydric's Tonic: Receive level 7 Kaahi and level 7 Kaizel upon use. Sour Sidewinder: Receive level 5 Gloria, level 5 Impostio Manus, and level 5 Magnificat upon use. Finally, summer's sunset eventually falls upon us - and so the Amazing Summer Race will run through September 21st at the end of the summer season. We hope that you enjoy the wonderful features of this year's Amazing Summer Race - and as always, happy gaming!
  15. The results are in, everyone! There were many amazing Cookoff entries, each one showcasing an incredible and fun amount of creativity, artistic expression, and deliciousness! Your GM team has voted on their favorites, and we are delighted and surprised to announce the winners were all very close in running. So much, in fact - there was a tie for third! Without further delay, here are our top four winners of the Autumn 2016 Cookoff! ~ First Prize ~ @+Karen+ There's no denying that this meal looks attractive both to the eyes and to the taste buds! Not only does the food look delicious, but the obvious thought put into the presentation and atmosphere given with the meal makes it fun and attractive! I'm not sure what I'd want to try first - the swirly mountain of potatoes, or all that red berry ooze coming out from the dessert... Tied together with a cute little theme with a story, this meal managed to win the GM team's hearts! ~ Second Prize ~ @Ribbet The monster theme was strong with this one! Merely just looking at the ensemble makes me feel like I'm turning into a Smokie, because everything looks so yummy! The face in the soup was adorable and just merely by looking at that salad, I can only imagine the flavor and texture must be unique and delicious. Combine that with the adorable cookie that comes with the overwhelming urge to dunk it in that mug, this entry was fantastic! ~ Third Prize ~ @Scotky Tro and @Yhonona The only thing more fun than having three incredible winners, is having four incredible winners! Both of these dishes have their own unique appeal - Scotky's entry makes me want to shoo the fall and winter weather away and find the nearest beach so I can start digging into that pineapple, put on my shades, and sip that Red Potion. No Condor is safe now that I have my sights on this recipe! Yhonona, your entry is a prime example of how food can be made into art! The Pandaring curry and your sleeping teddy look almost too cute to eat - thankfully, I am merciless when it comes to food and if I could I would devour their adorable faces. ~ Congratulations to all of our winners! If you need a reminder of what you've earned with your cooking, here's the list of prizes. Keep an eye on your mailbox ingame - it'll be bursting with goodies soon enough! @+Karen+ : 20x TC / Petite Chef Hat / Lv. 10 Cookbook / Fantastic Cooking Kit / 6x Bonus TC! @Ribbet : 20x TC / Lv. 10 Cookbook / 7x Bonus TC! @Scotky Tro : 15x TC / Lv. 10 Cookbook / 8x Bonus TC! @Yhonona : 15x TC / Lv. 10 Cookbook / 9x Bonus TC! And, all valid participants will also receive a Lv. 10 food bundle! Thank you, everyone! We hope you enjoyed this cookoff and congratulations to our winners and all our participants for making such a fun and delicious event a success. We also cannot express how much fun it was reading the stories and screenshots you all created with your entries to add an extra level of humor and fun to this event. Give all our participants a pat on the back and beg them to express ship a few meals to your house. We can hardly wait until the next one...
