kRO has announced a new Ragnarok.... Ragnarok Zero. What is Ragnarok Zero? Basically put, Ragnarok Zero is going to be a new beginning... back to when it wasn't Renewal! With this in mind, they want you to remember the olden day memories we all have bundled in our heads. They are also doing a lot of new UI changes and adding tons of new content... of course keeping everything Trans-based and no Third Jobs. We all remember those days of playing RO before renewal... and well, kRO wants to make sure we keep them and relive them through Ragnarok Zero.
Here are some infographics that I translated to give us more of a sense of what's in store for us.
What are you thoughts? I really love that new navigation interface along with the character creation... and glad they are putting the random options enchantments in this mode.
Here is their opening animation for Ragnarok Zero:
PS: You'll see the Doram Race as well.
Correction: The navigation UI isn't -new-. It may have just been slightly modified a tad (according to the translation).
Topic Updated: November 29th 2017
kRO has released more information about Ragnarok Zero. Here is a low down:
Ragnarok Online ZERO will be using a pre-renewal status system. They believe having a random item options for equipment will make it beneficial to farm equipment (as oppose to the way it use to be). There will be an increase in armor resistance by 3x compared to previously. Experience based on level difference and Drop Penalty have been adjusted. Global cooldown of the skills have been limited to a maximum of 0.3 seconds.
Change to the Quest Structure:
Levelling up and farming in the new system makes it easier to progress through various quests.
1) Quest rewards
This system that has been added provides a certain amount of quest rewarded experience towards a certain overall experience gained. As a result, if you continue you complete various quests, you can obtain a ton of equipment easily and you can also find various items such as consumables.
2) Tips Box Reorganization:
Normally, the Tipbox offers a variety of information. There are tons of quests throughout Midgard and this tipbox will provide you a vast amount of information pertaining to various quests you can do throughout Midgard. You will be able to search for information.

A lot of information and the UI of the Quest system has been changed. Everything has been adjusted so that it's easier to navigate through quests by selecting on options. Doing so will open up the navigation window.

Thoughts on this new awesome update!? I'm actually quite excited to get my hands on playing these 2 new classes.
Edit: just updated the topic with skill translations (rough)!
kRO has been working on rebalancing some classes. This means that certain skills for certain classes have been adjusted / changed up; either they have been buffed or pretty much nerfed. So far, it looks like some good changes have been made.
Preserve will disappear after changing maps
SP costs of copied skills has been adjusted from 200% --> 130%
When you are using the Shadow Spell skill, it will still activate even if the attack misses. It will also activate when using bow type weapon. (It will become the same system as sage's auto-spell)
Homunculus will receive a little portion of EXP when the owner kills a monster. The homunculus can enjoy a bit more EXP from an event or BM. Homunculus max level has been changed from 150 --> 175 Homunculus skills will have their own individual cool down time. There is a new change coming to the AI system. Updates to each Homunculus is still in discussion... but here is what we have so far:
- Increase the damage of Needle of Paralysis
- Pyroclastic will no longer damage your weapon upon skill ends.
- Eraser Cutter will become neutral for all levels, largely increase the damage, and decrease the variable cast time
- Xeno Slasher will become wind for all levels, largely increase the damage, and decrease the variable cast time
- Sonic Claw's cast range increase from 1 cell to 2.
- Skill after-cast delay decrease a little for Silvervein Rush and Midnight Frenzy.
- Greatly decrease the fixed casting time for Stahl Horn
- Heilage Stange's AoE increases.
