Ragnarok: The Lost Memories is finally out. It is the follow-up to Ragnarok Online, so fans of the series can expect to go down memory lane.
As an adventure combat RPG, the game treats players to plenty of quests filled with action. The objective is to beat monsters, clear dungeons, and slay bosses. You have to fight enemies to move forward with the story.
For those who want to challenge real players from all over the world, the PvP arena offers just that. Get exciting rewards playing this mode, or team up with other players by joining a guild to defeat powerful monsters and obtain exclusive rewards.
Card-Based Combat System
When it comes to combat, you can bring up to four heroes with you. In addition to that, there is a card system.
Cards represent active and passive skills that your characters get to use while fighting. Every ability has a deployment cost, and mana for casting keeps regenerating automatically during combat.
The good thing about Ragnarok: The Lost Memories is that combat takes place automatically. So, you don’t have to worry about casting skills because the game will do it for you.
You also journey across the map automatically playing the campaign mode thanks to the auto-pathing feature. Just click the quest log, and your battle party will go to the destination without requiring your input through navigation controls.
As a bonus, the game features a crafting system. You can visit the blacksmith to forge items like weapons, gear, and accessories.
To craft anything, first, you must gather the required materials by farming for them through quests. The crafting process also costs coins.
Furthermore, you also have the option to refine your items. Refining weapons increases their ATK stat.
Character Development System
As you complete quests, you will gradually collect heroes. There are more than 20 characters from the Ragnarok franchise to acquire. All your units have unique skills. What’s more, you can build battle squads using heroes from different classes such as swordsman, thief, archer, wizard, among other hero archetypes.
There are also different options in the game to develop your characters. For instance, rank up your heroes by challenging heroes in the Hall of Valhalla. When your units rank up, new skills unlock.
It is also possible to customize your characters with outfits, armor, weapons, and other types of gear. When you equip your heroes, their battle power (BP) increases.
Tips & Tricks for Playing Ragnarok: The Lost Memories on PC
• Don’t Skip the Story
As you go about your adventures in this game, you meet many characters and have conversations with them before moving on to carry out a quest. The dialogues immerse you into the storyline, but you have the option to skip them if you are more into the combat gameplay.
Keep in mind, though, that skipping dialogues has a negative effect. If you do so, you will not be able to claim your gemstone reward for that specific quest.
• Set Up Camp
Sometimes you can lose one of your heroes in combat. The good news, though, is that Ragnarok: The Lost Memories offers a camping feature that you can use to rejuvenate. After setting up camp, it will allow your entire team to regain HP, thus reviving any fallen allies.
You set up camp a maximum of five times before you have to go back to town. Once you go back to town, it replenishes your units. However, setting up camp lets you continue with a quest shortly after taking a quick rest.
• Finish Side Quests
Besides the main storyline quests, Ragnarok: The Lost Memories has plenty of side quests. To launch a side quest, you have to click on the question marks that appear on the map.
Every time you encounter enemy units and defeat them, you win hero EXP, zeny coins, card draw tickets, minerals, fabric, and all kinds of resources. Make sure to complete all your side quests to gather lots of loot for your heroes.
• Keep Leveling Up
There are plenty of upgrades to buy in the game that will make your units more powerful and prepare them for more challenging quests as they advance in the game. For starters, make sure to level up your hero skills. Additionally, you can enchant gear or upgrade your cards using mana powder, which contains condensed magic of unknown origin.
