I want to share this method to everyone on TalonRO that are interested of being a Super Novice !!

To be a Super Novice u have to be Base Lv 45 and Job Lv 10 as a Novice, by then u can talk to the Job Changer NPC and he will make u into a Super Novice

Pros and Cons ;

Pros :

  • All of the first class skills can be used by Super Novice.
  • U can be any role, Example: Bolter, Greeder ( Looting ), Support.
  • Can reach IC ( Instant Cast ) without dex gears and kaho. * Not for a Super Baby of course *
  • Cheap Gears already can made u look like a PRO.
  • When u level up each time, You'll receive buff stats. Example : Kyrie Eleison , Magnificat, Gloria, Suffragium, Impositio Manus

Cons :

  • Low HP & SP pool, Real Low !! This can be overcome by Gears and Cards.
  • People don't trust Super Novice on Party, So u could hardly be invited to join any Leveling/ Farming Party, So basically you are a Solo player. But I don't find this a problem !
  • Limited Gears, Most gear had the label of All Jobs except Novice, that novice include super novice so, You can't wear any gears the rest of the players are wearing, but they can't wears yours too :D 
  • The only job that needed Base Lv 45 to job change, leveling a Novice from base Lv1 to 45? HOoO without skills? yeah serious its kinda hard for newbie but it'll pay off !

I recommend new players to stay on Training Ground ( when u first created your char u start off there ), leveling until base at least 45 to be able to job change to Super Novice !

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Let start off with GEARS !! LOW BUDGET ONE !!

  • Headgear : Super Novice Hat [1] ( Slotted is can only be bought from players for 100k ~ 150k or Dropped by Holden [1.5%] )

All stats +1

Add a 30% resistance against Stun, Curse, Blind, Stone Curse.
Add a chance of auto casting Stun, Curse, Blind, Stone Curse when the user receives Physical Damage.

  • Robe : Somber Novice Hood [0] ( You start of with this as a Novice, Unless u lost it? Can be bought from NPC at Prontera Upper Middle for 1 zeny oh goodie )
  • *This is basically using a Garment with Raydric Card on :P*

Increase resistance to Neutral Property attacks by 20%.
Impossible to refine this item.

  • Shoes : Novice Shoes [1] (Can be bought from NPC at Lighthalzen)

Maximum HP + 5%

  • Recommended Card : Eggyra ( Less than 100k ) hardly be found for sale.

SP Recovery + 15%

*No card is okay though*

  • Accessories : Novice Armlet [1] ( Can be bought from NPC at Prontera middle right building )  / Clip [1] ( Can be bought from player at 150k or dropped by Dragon Fly [90%]

Novice Armlet :  STR + 1, INT + 1, LUK + 1

Clip : Maximum SP + 10

  • Recommended Card : Siroma Card [Price 400k~600k]

Reduce Casting Time of Cold Bolt by 25%. Inflict 25% more damage with Cold Bolt.

 

screenTalonRO013.jpg.b7ffa20628f506c34d9

Now to the Stats :

  • 99 Base DEX
  • 94 Base INT
  • 26 Base AGI

Why I choose AGI instead of VIT? Super Novice has low HP gain on VIT stats so i recommend to get AGI instead since Attention Concentrate *Skill* increase 12% AGI & DEX !!

Leveling to level 60 and Above :

Get Soul Strike 10 At least, then head to GHP or GHC and leveling until u got enough job levels.

Recommended to leveling until Lv75 Base and Lv70 Job.

Now Skill Build for Farming with these gears : The number means amount of skill point input on the skill, Red for must have skill, Blue for recommended amount of skill point that must be input to that skill.

  • Blessing 10 ( Increase STR, INT & DEX )
  • Owl's Eye 10 ( Increase DEX )
  • Attention Concentrade 10 ( Increase AGI & DEX )
  • Steal 10 ( To get extra loot from monsters )
  • Cold Bolt 10 ( Your only offensive skill, Its to match up with the Siroma Card )
  • Agi Up 10 ( Movement Speed and AGI )
  • Teleportation 2 ( For Maneuver purposes )
  • Heal 8 ( For Recovering your HP )
  • Increase Dodge 10 ( Increase FLEE for your survivability )
  • Enlarge Weight Limit 5 ( To Hold more item and loots )
  • Increase Spiritual Power 5 ( Recover SP , this skill helps u a lot since u have low SP pool )
  • Some other skills will be up for skill above to be unlocked, and the remaining points can be use up on skills as your needs.

Farming Spots : Farming Spots are your leveling spots :) 

  • Toy Factory F2 ( Myst Case ) Hunt cakes and chiqita box

Method for how to farm there:

  • Steal *Myst Case*  -> Cold Bolt . Heal yourself if necessary 
  • screenTalonRO253.jpg.2e300f6e6271eb772fcscreenTalonRO255.jpg.7ec2be86e76b8258692screenTalonRO268.jpg.97e4434a23b1a0bfeebscreenTalonRO272.jpg.d476b7045464a84e48d

Total Spending on Gearing Up = Around 3.5m

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________End of Part 1

Part 2 Stay tuned, Part 2 Decent Geared and Better Farming Spot for higher levels and Super Novice secrets.

abit sugestion for heal i think lvl 3 enough to make you survive because mage tipe (int) so with lvl 3 heal (min skill req for agi up) it heal around 700-800 (i think enough for survive- except you use heal as damage dealer skill like GH zombie) and you can save skill point for other skill (it mean save 5 more skill point), and for card alternatif you can try blue acidus card for hat and gold acidus card for shoes (usually gold acidus that many in market),

and for lower headgear you can use flu mask from morroc npc(some place hunt i found i got silence from monster)

and low lvl SN can use

firebolt + tele ready at geographer , muscipular monster (outside ice dungeon or north einbroch)

Quitted playing SN Q_Q

But, imma just share mine,

I lvl my SN at Sting as soon as having IC and Firebolt, no need IMP card, theyre weak and slow, then, anolian at lvl 85+ ish cant remember, mob and thunderstorm, all u need to change just hillwind card [Boost TS damage] for staff and scaraba card [5% MATK] for accessories!

Also get robo eye as well for MATK and DEX, if ur lucky u might have one from chiquita box at toy factory..

Scaraba card is bit rare tho, but its 1,2m max last time i checked it.

 

Btw, just bring some greenpot to cure silence, 40z each. xD It also cure some other sstat ailment..

Well for me mobbing at ghc is slow, tele > tele > bolt sting > tele. Is much faster, rather thn gathering whole slow walker zombie/skeleton to TS them. Beside Sting gives more EXP and not bad drop as well.

I just noticed this now, I thought the talonro ritsu is a male?/gg

This guide is actually very tempting, easy to understand and newbie friendly too, with pictures and the likes. The only problem I am facing right now is connection instability, which affects my mobbing style. If I can't mob, I can't play properly, that's how I am. Besides, I want that +10 all stat no death bonus/fsh

how to get +51 dex?

99 dex + Improve Concentration + Owl's Eye + self-Bless is already 137. 13 is missing and you are still fully naked. You have many options.

lets just focus on the +51

+5 - job bonus for having 99job lvl

+10 - owl eye

+10 - bless

+10 - no death bonus

+1 - super novice hat

+15 - improve concentration

= +51

I suppose that you didnt know about the "no death bonus" - you may want to check on this link:

SPOONFED ALERT!!! SPOONFED ALERT!!! SPOONFED ALERT!!!

you can use the setup howrah mentioned above, do note that the "no death bonus" applies to all stats if you have not died even once, this means you cannot YOLO those metaling at novice ground with fast dagger because there is a fair chance metaling will poke you to death, therefore negating the bonus for you. There is a way to reset the death count, but that involves a very complicated method, requiring a bit of patience and luck (not luk stat, your actual luck as player)

you can also use stem worm carded garment (hope i got the name right) and/or gargoyle carded footwear to increase your dex, sting carded acc helps too, drops carded weapon also works

more expensive gears including, but not limited to : Lord Kaho Horn, Brisingamen, any dex+3 armor, but since we are talking about low budget here, this last line can be ignored for now

      Could someone make a detailed guide to level for new players and oldies alike?
      I just made another char, but since there is no more training grounds(why was it taken away ) I've no idea where to level my from level 22 since the quests end there.
      I made swordsman, but I'd like to see a guide for all classes, focused on new players.(like no gears, though I'm running +4 panty/undie combo and some headgears and a swag scarf lul)
      I think the leveling guides should be updated since the process has been changed.
    • By zosiama
      First of All, I haven't playing any Ragnarok Online for almost 3 years, but I've returned mainly because I love to experience the game which has really good plot, story-line, hard worker farmer, etc etc. I made this guide because I've study so many newbie guide but when actually read it, its not for newbie people at all, its more likely for who have known the game for more like 1 week ~2 months playing or have friends to tell how or what to do etc. they are good but for newbie its hard to understand and boring, so when I can't really state what it meant or more than my understanding I'll put a link, so others can quickly see the more and most good advance guide there, that's for introduction.
       
      What I am written here is for mostly or Completely Beginner Player or who really don't know what to do like farming zeny, where to hunt, base and job leveling, equipment. So, as a title says "Its for New Player Archer". I am not going to go too much fast pace, and only until level 50. This also from my experience so please don't judges me too seriously, I have been playing solo mostly like 8/10 and I am also a noob who doesn't have any friend(s) 
      In this Talon Ragnarok Online, after you enter the game and done tutorial "DON'T SKIP TUTORIAL" just before changing jobs, After that "PLEASE DO JOB QUEST" for changing Job, because you are new to the world, you don't have friends to help you and you really don't have zeny (you got about 10k zeny in the beginning)to buy equipment, buffs, potion etc needed in the game, so do job quest so you can get Copper Coin which can be used later for Rental Items.
      Job Quest guide can be found here. There you just get Copper Coins for Free. I'll explain where to get equipment, items needed to kill monster, where to get Base and Job Exp
      Then, You are now mostly Level 21~24 Base and Lv.1 Job, from here on you're gonna to be busy. After getting a job the archer Guild gave you bow and arrow, yes for equip, just double click and it'll equip automatically. After that Go to Payon City, Warp>Cities>Payon, the go south ward then in the left side go to the wooden roof house, ta da.... that's where you are gonna get bow or arrow.
      P.S. THIS IS FOR ARCHER Based HUNTER
      Firstly, I really recommend you buy silver arrow which cost 2z get it about 1000 at least, and buy 1~3 Concentration Potion for your attack speed. and go back to the town and warp to Payon Dungeon to kill monsters.
      As for stats, Archer need fast attack speed/dodge as well as good or best hit rate so i suggest putting to like STR-9 (damage and increase weight limit) VIT - 9 (Hp and Def) AGI- 26 and DEX - 20. Go to Payon Dungeon and equip silver arrow, drink concentration potion, now start killing Skeleton for Exp. it'll be 100% hit with Skeleton and will need 2~5 hit to die, also beware of Zombie and Familiars which are aggressive don't let them surround you. Archer got ranged advantages so, you can pick them from afar, one by one. Now, after killing monsters you get Skill Stats/Points which you need to add. I recommend to add Owl's Eye (add Dex)and Vulture's Eye (HIT and Ranged) to max at first and then Add Attention Concentration (% to AGI/DEX) then Double Strafing skill to kill monster, as it name implies it attack double with 1 arrow and used SP and finally AOE attack Arrow Shower with remaining skill points. Altogether 49 points. Platinum skills can be learned at Prontera near Hunting Quests Board Making Arrow (It's a skill which you can make an arrow from materials detail can be found here) and Charge Arrow
      Where to Level with some basic detailed
      Level 21~30 Payon Dungeon 00(Silver Arrow) [Skeleton, Zombie, Familiars and Poporing] and Prontera Culvert, to go to Culvert you need access so here is how to do LINK [Thief Bug, Familiars, Tarou, Thief Bug Egg, Female Thief Bug, Spore] By the Way, keep everything drops.
      Level 31~40 Payon field 09 (Fire Arrow) [Smokie, Bigfoot and Poporing]
      Level 37~45 Bibilian Dungeon 01/02 [Plankton, Vadon, Marina, Kukre and Hydra (Immovable)] (Wind Arrow)
      Level 41~50 A. Payon field 02 [Wolf, Snake, Poporing, Spore (for spore don't use fire)]
                         B. Orc Dungeon 01 [Orc Zombie, Orc Skeleton, Drainliars (Silver Arrow)(They are Aggressive) Steel Chonchon (Stone Arrow or Neutral)] 
                         C. Einbroch Field 02 [Geographer (Aggressive and Immovable) Holden Metaling](Fire Arrow)
       
       
      As for other leveling guide and other most useful guides which I found very good and much more please see below with links
      A. Talon Wiki Leveling Guide here
      B. A Great guide made by Kimchii for farming and leveling can be found here
      C. A Class overview made by kkroto01 here
      D. Mercenary guide by Goodboy here
      As for others I'll update when available
      Now Equipment Guide and Strategy 
      For this, its very hard to make a guide because, you start out with your first character which is an archer, so, i'll try to keep up the necessary materials/ equipment but low cost as possible.
      Firstly, after changing your job as an archer what you get is a bow, i suggest you used it all the way until you get 25~40k zeny to buy new Bow. You can get the following Bows at NPC Vendors
      Composite Bow[3] 2,500z
      Great Bow[2] 10,000z
      Crossbow[2]  17,000z
      Gakkung[1] 42,000z
      Arbalest [1] which gives +2 DEX 48,000z
      As for others if you can find Pantie and Undershirt MDEF+1 which is a combo set which gives AGI+5 and Flee Rate +10, it is best if not forget it, As for Armor or Head gear Use Magnifier (can be buy in NPC Vendors )to Identify the drop equipment and equip, common items which are normally drops are Ribbon +3 MDEF, Hood, Cotton Shirt, Sandals, Skull Ring, Gold Ring. Equip as desire. Most of them gave DEF. Also, you can upgrade it with an Ore, which will give decent DEF and ATK for Weapons, depend the Level of Equipment Ore are Differentiate.
       
      I'll try to update as fast when I'm done some investigation regarding guide.
      Thank you. Btw, I really am not playing or logging my account anymore, wish this help, also got a friend who is completely a newbie who wants to play and ofcourse we can't play at a same time, so with that as based I'am making this guide.

      Hi there, I was building my SN on stat calc and something occoured to me when I activated the aura blade lvl 5 bonus. The skill states, and I precisely quote, that: "Creates a special aura around the weapon that increases damage and IGNORES THE TARGET'S DEF, but not his flee". Well, when I turn the skill effect on, there's a slightly change on my dps but as I turn "sigrum crucis lvl 10" on my dps increases even more... which is really odd since I'm already ignoring 100% of the mobs DEF... Is that a problem with the calculator or a game bug?
      Here is calc build link:
      1st one = NO Sigrum Crucis (WITH Aura Blade)
