Recently I was coaxed into playing RO2, it was released on steam and its free to play! I was never keen on the idea of paying a monthly fee to level grind, I wont mention any names *cough* WoW *cough*. A bunch of years back I had played the original Ragnarok Online on a private server "TwilightRO". Its good to see that a lot of the elements from RO have returned in RO2 but with enough changed to keep it fresh. Tho I wish the exp rates were higher, seeing as I don't have a lifetime to devote to leveling T_T. First difference I noticed was the fact that Base exp and Job exp aren't earned together, after to kill a monster you gain your base exp, then after looting the monster you need to right click on it again and your character crouches down and what appears to be gathering up the shattered remains of your fallen enemy, then you gain the job exp. A little weird at first, but not too inconvenient. Secondly, you're given a class of your own choosing (ie Swordsman, archer, thief, etc) and then you're given a Job (ie chef, artisan, alchemist, etc), in RO this wasn't the case.
I'm still pretty new at the game, so I'm still getting used to the system. If anyone wants to join me, shoot me a PM. In the meantime I'll be slaughtering innocent creatures with what appears to be the rest of the townspeople. Seriously, is that this world's muse? God this is worse than beyblade.
