Ragnarok Rush: Crafting and Upgrading Gears - Golden Hammer Drops


Here's a guide on how to farm materials for crafting Purple, Yellow, Red and Gold equipments, a feature from the RPG mobile game Ragnarok Rush.

Farming and How to Obtain Gears


Green and Blue Gears

   - Green gears are given by default to all Pets.
   - Blue gears can be farmed from Gateway stages. Use the "Recommend" option from your Pet's gears section to quickly point you to the specific stage where you can farm them.
Ragnarok Rush: Crafting and Upgrading Gears - Golden Hammer Drops

Purple Gears

   - Obtained through Crafting (would recommend Weapons since they are uncommon from drops and events, but skip if you want to craft yellow weapons instead, especially for VIP players).

First Crafting Tutorial Trick!
   - During the tutorial, the game will let you craft any purple gear you want. Do not select any, and keep the materials instead to craft a purple Headgear or Weapon later on, or you can craft a Rosary for your tank.

   - Some Purple Armors can be obtained from Event Rewards (check all upcoming daily rewards).
   - Random reward from the Prontera Defense event (lower Lvl bosses).
   - Join a Guild and apply for the Purple gears that are available. Highly recommended because it's free, but please make some Donations to the guild to give something back too.
   - Buy Equipment Chests: Would highly recommend using x10 Summons to get a random purple gear (except Hat, Wings, and Weapons). This is the fastest way to get Purple gears as long that you have extra Diamonds.
Ragnarok Rush Purple
Red Scale Shards and Carniums
   - Commonly found from events and story rewards.
   - Carniums can be farmed from the Ruins (recommended).
   - Random reward from the Prontera Defense event. You can also get Red Scale Shards by drawing rewards after a fight. Draw using Diamonds to get more (recommended from Dark Dales and above bosses).
   - Join a Guild and apply for these items for free (only 1 per day though for members).
   - Buy Equipment Chests: Would highly recommend using x10 Summons to get 100% chance of getting 20 Carniums and 10 Red Scale Shards.
   - Buy from Equipment Chest Exchange Shop using Arm Points (accumulated every time you use summons). Use your points to buy Red Scale Shards, this is optional and only if needed.

Yellow Gears

   - Obtained through Crafting.
   - Some Yellow Armors can be obtained from Event Rewards (check all upcoming daily rewards).
   - Obtained from rare and Limited Events that gives you boxes with random Yellow equipments.
Ragnarok Rush Yellow Hammer
Golden Hammers
   - Random reward from the Prontera Defense event (would recommend from Nattegge onwards, spend Diamonds to increase chance).
   - Buy from Prontera Defense Shop.
   - Buy Equipment Chests: x10 Summons will net you 100% chance of getting 1 Hammer. This is the fastest way to get them as long that you have extra Diamonds.
   - Join a guild and apply for it. This might take long depending on the number of players that are waiting in-line for that item to drop.
   - Random reward from Faction War chests (chest with crafting materials).
   - From Rare and Limited Events.

Red and Golden Gears

   - Collect materials from events, and other sources like shops, then craft better gears once you have the items needed.
   - You can buy Red Weapons from the Equipment Chest Exchange Shop using Arm Points (accumulated every time you use summons). Hint: You'll need 45,000 Diamonds with 20% Discount to reach 750 Arm Points.
   - Obtained from rare and Limited Events where you can exchange certain items for Red or Golden Gears.Materials.
Ragnarok Rush Red Oridecon Hammer
Oridecon Hammers
   - Random reward from the Prontera Defense event (from Evil Octopus onwards, spend Diamonds to increase chance).
   - Random reward from the Faction War chests (chest withcrafting materials).
   - Buy from Eden Group Mission Prestige Shop.
   - Join a strong guild and apply for it, if available (unlocked at higher Gateways? Needs confirmation).
   - Sometimes it will appear from the Equipment Chest Exchange Shop (using Arm Points) as a limited time event. Requires 100 Arm Points.
   - From Rare and Limited Events.
Ragnarok Rush Gold Emblem of the Sun God
Emblem of the Sun God
   - Random reward from the Prontera Defense event (Demon Hunter, higher lvls).
   - Buy from Eden Group Mission Prestige Shop. Once you are able to open Lvl 21+ Gateways, complete them then reset to re-farm Honor and Elite Honor points.
   - From Rare and Limited Events.

Which Gears to Craft First?


General Rule (Recommended for F2P)

   - Only craft Gears that can quickly enhance your Character and Pet's performance. Here's some examples, but always prioritize your main character first then your core team.

   - Purple Gears are easy to obtain so complete them as you go, but focus more on getting Yellow gears, especially weapons. Red and Gold equipments might take some time, but keep farming their crafting materials once you get a stronger team.

Main Character
   - Follow the below examples according to your job class, but still try to complete all gears to get huge bonuses from Set Effects. Check below for more info about Set Effects.
Tank Units
   - Armors > Hat and Wings > Weapon (can be skipped, but needed for set effects).
Melee DPS Units
   - Weapon > Hat and Wings > Armors (can be skipped until you get more resources).
   - Melee DPS units can still become vulnerable from AoE attacks, so upgrade their armors if needed.
   - For Thief Class, and similar units that can go behind enemies, also consider getting some nice armors for them.
Ranged Units
   - Weapon > Hat and Wings > Armors (can be skipped until you get more resources).
   - Ranged units can become vulnerable from AoE and Backstab attacks, so upgrade their armors if needed, especially units placed at the back.

Other Note
   - Armors above also includes Necklaces and Rings. Recommended that you get 1 Armor and 1 Ring/Necklace first.
   - Hats are called Accessories in the game which is confusing, that's why I used Hats instead.
   - Gears that you no longer need can be used by your backup Pets for other game modes.

What Are Set Effects?


Set Effects (By Equipment Grade)

   - First of all, a lot of newbies are ignoring this which is really bad even if they have powerful pets, because some players are still using green weapons to their tanks combined with purple and yellow armors at Lvl 60+ for example.
Ragnarok Rush Set Properties
   - Click on the "Set Properties" button near your character or pet's avatar.
   - Character equipments can activate Set Effects (stat bonuses) when certain conditions are met.
   - Note: Higher grade equipment can substitute lower grade equipment. Example: If you have 7 Purple gears and 1 Yellow gear, then together they would still activate the effect = Equip 8 Purple equipment items.

Basic Stats To Follow:

Ragnarok Rush Stats Chart
In General, Aside from the Class Exclusive Stats:
   - Units with Physical Attacks = ATK, A.CRI and AP. May also include CRI.D and HIT.
   - Units with Magic Attacks including Healing = MATK, M.CRI and MP (except for full support Healers). May also include CRI.D and HIT.
   - For Melee and Tank units = HP, DEF, MDEF and FLEE. May also include A.C.RM.C.R and HIT.

Note: You may add any stat you think is suitable for your main character or pets. Thief class can go with a Glass Cannon all attack build, or Attack+Survivability hybrid.

Upgrading Your Gears


Ragnarok Rush - Upgrade Equipment

Enhancing Gears

   - Enhance your gears to +10 to unlock it's next Refine Lvl.
   - Only requires a number Gold, but increases as you go higher.
   - Enhancing gears won't trigger any set effects.

Refining Gears: Increase Number of Stars


Set Effects: Number of Refines
   - Refine your Gears to increase their stats bonuses and to unlock set effects!
   - Check Set Properties section in-game, near your avatar to learn more.

Refining Scrolls
   - Can be farmed from Gateway Ruins, advance the game to unlock higher grades of Refining Scrolls.

Oridecons and Eluniums
   - Can be farmed too from Gateway stages and Ruins. Best if you do this while farming shards, materials for promotions, or quest items.
   - Can be obtained as rewards from various events and game modes.
   - Can be obtained from the Mysterious Summons using Gold.

Optional Methods For Upgrading Stars:

   - If you want to prioritize their strengths, and increase the number of Stars or Enhancement higher than other gears, then that's ok too. Follow the example methods below as a guide.

Tank Units
   - Armors > Hat and Wings > Weapon (but still recommended for set effects too).
Melee DPS Units
   - Weapon > Hat and Wings > Armors (increase once you get more resources).
   - For Thief Class, and similar units that can go behind enemies, also consider refining your Armors too.
Ranged Units
   - Weapon > Hat and Wings > Armors (increase once you get more resources, especially for units placed at the back to increase survivability from backstab attacks).

Quick Upgrade Tips: Blue Gears

   - You may enhance and refine Blues early game to 1~2 Stars. Dismantle them using Gold once you no longer need them at higher levels.

Quick Upgrade Tips: Purple Gears

   - Purple gears can also go until 3 Stars, or even up to 5 Stars as long that you know what you are doing (usually used as fillers, like armors for ranged units). This is actually a recommended option to quickly gain set bonuses!
   - This method would also mean that you are willing to dismantle them if no longer needed (using Diamonds) once you get better ones.

Quick Upgrade Tips: Yellow Gears 

   - This is where your main focus should be, and slowly upgrade their Stars to max as you go.
   - Since they are harder to get, you can combine them with Purple Gears for now, but always learn how to prioritize.
Ragnarok Rush - Upgrading Yellow Gears
   - TIP: Once you reach 3~4 Stars to all of your gears, enhancing fees will probably cost Millions of Gold from here on, so you might want to stop here for now, especially when you have limited resources around mid game.

Quick Upgrade Tips: Red Gears and Golden Gears

   - For late game content, max them out too whenever you get the chance.

What Will Happen If All Stars are Maxed?
   - Moon Icons will appear instead of Stars for more enhancing and refining options.

Selling and Dismantling Gears

   - For gears that you no longer need, go to the Crafting section > Sell > Dismantle.
   - By default, dismantling gears and weapons will bring back 80% of all upgrading fees and materials used.
   - WARNING! Dismantling gears will destroy the gear, and will only save the materials and Gold used.

Ragnarok Rush: Territorial War Invasion Time, Guild Defense Can't Enter Problem


Territorial War or Guild War is a feature in the RPG mobile game Ragnarok Rush, where a group of players representing their guilds will get a chance to invade other guilds for loots, or to defend their guild to protect their resources.

Join a Guild!

   - In order to enjoy all rewards from the Guild Wars, you must first join a Guild. Certain guilds however, have some requirements, and once you are able to join one, go check their "Announcements" and "Guild Chats" for their Guild Rules if available.

Donate!

   - You should join an active Guild, and if possible, also Donate to help your guild grow stronger.
   - Donations will also give you Guild Hearts that you can use to buy items from the Guild Shop.
   - Aside from those shards, I would recommend earning Rank-Up Shard boxes for later Lvls!
Ragnarok Rush: Territorial War Invasion Time, Guild Defense Can't Enter Problem

Territorial War - Invasion


Invading Guilds

   - You can only Invade 2x a day.
   - You can't invade during Guild Defense, so always check your Guild's current Defense Time.

Invade Quick Tips
   - You need to be quick when invading because it only lasts 30 minutes. Select the Southern or Northern Gate then defeat all Defending units from the Defense Side until you or your guild can destroy the Spiritual Shrine/Escort.
   - Skip battles if possible, to make things faster.
   - Remaining HP and SP are retained. When you die, you will be teleported to the Land of Resurrection with 1 minute cool-down and 5 seconds delay.
   - Use the "Summon Battle" option to call your guildmates for help.

If Still Weak To Attack
   - Just attack weaker defenders that you can to get some nice points.
   - You can also help lessen the HP of enemies to give your big guns a higher chance to win against them. If possible, do not attack very strong players that have "super team healing" because you might just let their HP go a bit higher.
   - Focus on destroying towers to get points, especially when you think you can't win the war.

Invasion Rewards
   - Depends if the invasion is successful, your total damages, and Rank after the Invasion.
   - Diamonds will also be included.
   - Legacy of Gods will be added to your Guild, check "Artifact" for the total points.
Ragnarok Rush - Invasion Rewards

Time Table for Invading GMT+7

   - In-game Time: 11:30~12:00 = 2:30AM~3:00AM (GMT+7)
   - In-game Time: 15:30~16:00 = 6:30AM~7:00AM (GMT+7)
   - In-game Time: 19:30~20:00 = 10:30AM~11:00PM (GMT+7)

Time Table for Invading GMT+8

   - In-game Time: 11:30~12:00 = 3:30AM~4:00AM (GMT+8)
   - In-game Time: 15:30~16:00 = 7:30AM~8:00AM (GMT+8)
   - In-game Time: 19:30~20:00 = 11:30AM~12:00PM (GMT+8)

   - Note: The above time table is based on GMT+8 Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi including the Philippines (credits to Exelsior). If you find some discrepancies, please let me know or adjust your time accordingly.

Territorial War - Guild Defense


Defending Your Guild

   - You can only Defend once a day. Double check your current defense time selected by your guild leaders.

Defense Quick Tips
   - It is recommended that you enter the Territorial War and position your team before the invasion starts. You may choose either the Southern or Northern Gate to defend.
   - You can also go to the "Land of Resurrection" to defeat invaders that are about to re-spawn, but take note though that invaders can still slip through if you'll defend here.

   - Your aim is to defeat or at least stall all attacking units from the Attack Side until you or your guild can successfully protect the Spiritual Shrine/Escort for 30 minutes.

   - Skip battles if possible, to make things faster.
   - Remaining HP and SP are retained. When you die, you will be teleported to the Land of Resurrection with 1 minute cool-down (if battle is skipped) and 5 seconds delay.

If Still Weak To Attack
   - Just attack weaker invaders that you can to get some nice points.
   - If you are still weak to take on those big guys, I suggest that you do not attack them directly. It is way better to position yourself to any of your standing towers and wait for them to attack you ~ yup just delay their advancements (with loading screens and CDs) while waiting for your allies to re-spawn.
   - If your character dies, re-spawn then come back again to defend.

Invasion Rewards
   - Depends if your defense is successful, your total damages, and Rank after the Invasion.
   - Yup, you can still get a handful of rewards, win or lose.
Ragnarok Rush - Losing Side Rewards
(Losing Side Rewards - Invasion/Defense)
Penalties
   - If you lose, your guild's free Diamonds for the day will be halved.
   - Your guild will also lose some Legacy of Gods.

Time Table for Defense GMT+7

   - In-game Time: 12:30~13:00 = 2:30AM~3:00AM (GMT+7)
   - In-game Time: 16:30~17:00 = 6:30AM~7:00AM (GMT+7)
   - In-game Time: 20:30~21:00 = 10:30AM~11:00PM (GMT+7)
   - (Note: If you can't enter Defense Mode, refer below for alternate methods.)

Time Table for Defense GMT+8

   - In-game Time: 12:30~13:00 = 3:30AM~4:00AM (GMT+8)
   - In-game Time: 16:30~17:00 = 7:30AM~8:00AM (GMT+8)
   - In-game Time: 20:30~21:00 = 11:30AM~12:00PM (GMT+8)
   - (Note: If you can't enter Defense Mode, refer below for alternate methods.)

   - Note that you can enter 30 minutes before the invasion time.
   - Some SEA region guilds are actually using 11:30~12:00 time slot because the probability of getting attacks is lower. Defending is also tough because of it's awkward time slot, but this is still best for new and improving guilds because attackers are way too strong anyway.
   - For active guilds, better select a time slot where most of your guildmates are online.

I Can't Enter During Guild Defense!?


The Game Won't Let Me In!

   - If you are sure of the time you are supposed to get in but the game is keep on flashing "Please Enter at the correct time", then yes you have a problem.
   - This is probably a game bug, or maybe because of the time conversions with the game and your location. Anyway, we found some alternate methods that you can do to enter the Guild Defense.

   - Note: For newly opened Servers or created Guilds, you must wait for at least 1 Day before you can start.

Enter via the Invasion Option:

   - Enter Territorial War > Invasion > then set up Your Team.
   - Next, use the Search Guild ID function > enter Guild ID > Hit Search. (you can get your Guild Number from the "Member Management" building).
   - You should now see your guild name, click on the ATTACK option then confirm entry. Note that this will only work once the Invasion starts, and if you haven't used all of your 2 chances for the day.
   - Good luck!

Enter using Battle Summons:

   - If one of your guildmates were able to enter the Guild Defense Mode, let em send a Summon Link to your Guild Chat by using the "Summon Battle" option.
   - Check your Guild Chat and use the link to enter Guild Defense.

Ragnarok Rush: Crafting and Upgrading Gears - Golden Hammer Drops

Ragnarok Rush: Beginner's Tips, Jobs Classes, Team Builds and Strategy Guide


Here's some tips for beginners playing Ragnarok Rush, a RPG mobile game based on the famous MMORPG Ragnarok. Join forces and create a team with the world of Ragnarok as the creatures and pets fight alongside you, pledging their loyalty to you as their leader and to save the world!

Which Job Class To Choose?


Please note that you may go for any class as long that you know how to upgrade or enhance their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses. Recommendations below are based on the estimated resources that you might need to hit their potential.
Ragnarok Rush Job Classes

Swordsman Job Class

   - In this game, you need to heavily upgrade your tank as you go, so that he won't die easily. So, resource wise, tank is a good pick for F2P players.
   - Odin's Summon contains a lot of ranged pets and very few tanks (note: other melee pets are DPS type), so it's good.
   - Swordsman's skills focuses on survivability, and can protect other units. If timed right, "Provoke" can really reduce Boss damages, as well!
   - Your Fallen Bishop that is given for free from rewards is one of the few most used 14 Potential Pet that you can max out until end game!

Swordsman Challenge:
   - Some game modes are a bit challenging because of lower overall DPS. This is where you should start upgrading your DPS Pets.
   - Would still need a decent AoE healer for harder stages or modes.

Acolyte Job Class

   - Also recommended for F2P players.
   - With a decent tank, Acolytes can support with healing skills to make em sturdier.
   - Can also support the whole team with buffs and heals, pretty good against AoE attacks and backstabbers.

Acolyte Challenge: 
   - Same with the Swordsman, some game modes are a bit challenging because of lower overall DPS.
   - Would still need a stronger tank for higher stages or modes.

Mages and Archer Job Classes

   - These are ranged DPS type classes, and are really strong once you are able to create a team around them. Mages specializes on Magic attacks, while Archers on Physical attacks.
   - These units are placed at the back, so you can just focus on gears first that would increase their damage output.

Mages and Archer Challenge:
   - Recommended for experienced players.
   - You need to invest on your tank to help your main character cast skills with ease, and a strong healer to keep your tank alive at higher stages.

Thief Job Class

   - Melee DPS unit that can deal massive damages if done right. Can also target units at the back which is a huge advantage since most teams have units with weaker overall defense placed behind their tanks.

Thief Challenge:
   - Recommended for advanced F2P players.
   - Thief class in my opinion is the most challenging one because aside from his or her own armors and weapons, you also need to invest on a sturdy tank to protect the front, and a strong AoE healer to heal your team.

Adventure Mode and Rewards

Ragnarok Rush Adventure Mode and Gateways

Complete Gateways and Get 5 Stars!

   - Quickly spend your overflowing Energy by completing all stages that you can. Collect all Stars to get all stage rewards. Make sure to open all chests, especially those 50 star chests.
   - Unlock new stages and gather materials needed to promote your main character and pets.
   - Collect and Summon new pets as you go.
   - If you can't complete all 5 Stars, just continue and try to at least finish that stage to move on.

   - Once you complete Prontera, you'll be given a nice free Pet, add them to your core team until you can get a better one with higher Potential rating.
   - The Swordsman class will get Succubus (magic based mage).
   - All classes except Swordsman will also get Goblin Leader (main tank). Just use your Poring as temporary tank until then, no need to enhance anything, just give em some decent gears.

The Ruins Adventure

   - Great place to farm materials for upgrading or crafting gears, card shards, and pet shards.
   - Farm according to what you need at the moment.
   - For Cards, go for the stats that will enhance your main character, and core team. Focus here once you get some decent purple gears.

The Ruins: Farming Pet Shards

   - Master the Ruins and collect all pet shards from rewards, this way you'll be able to get another Pet with 14 Potential rating! Fallen Bishop (magic based mage; highly recommended to max) for Swordsman. Eddga for other classes (melee tank and control, but I would recommend Goblin Leader still until you get Turtle General).
   - Only complete what you can, then return when you get stronger.

Which Pets To Farm?
   - For Pet shards, farm and summon what your teams lacks or need to be improved like Tank, DPS (long ranged, melee, single target, AOE, physical or magical), Support, or Control.
   - Check the Pets section in-game for more info about them, use their icons as guide.
   - Tip: At higher stages, you can also farm all Pets with 14 and 15 Potential, so it is better to wait until you get there.
Ragnarok Rush Collections of Pets
   - Tip: Check your main character's collection requirements for Pets that you should get. Click on the Collection section below your character's portrait.
   - Recommended To Get: Moonlight Flower to increase HP by 50%.

Farm Dupes to Increase Stars of Pets
   - After summoning or if one of them is currently in your team, continue farming to enhance (increase stars) them further with dupes.
   - TIP: Overall, Pets that you can farm from the Ruins are pretty good once they get more 
Stars. Recommended for creating custom teams for Trials for example.

To Quickly Farm Shards
   - Go to your "Bag" > "Shards" > Select a Card Shard you want to farm > Use > Confirm Drop.
   - Combine cards here once you are done.

Team Building Guide (Early Game)


Basic Team Formations for Story Mode

   - Build a team around your main character.
   - 1 Tank, 3 DPS type units (melee or ranged), and 1 Support Healer.
   - 1 Tank, 2 DPS type units, 1 Control (can stun, freeze, silence, or debuff enemies), and 1 Support Healer.
   - For DPS units, get at least 1 AoE attacker.

   - Some bosses or tanks are tough because of resistances, so also consider getting at least 1 Physical based DPS and 1 Magical based DPS to your team, add more if you need backups.
   - Using 2 tanks is also ok, but make sure you have enough firepower, healing, or decent gears. Better concentrate on a single tank first if you are a beginner.

   - Basically, tanks should be placed in-front then your other melee units to the sides. Long ranged units should be placed anywhere behind your tank.
   - Switch your healer and/or tank to a DPS/Control unit for other modes that you don't need healing and/or tanking.

Early Game Teams (Without Summons)

   - You should replace 10 Potential Pets as you go.
   - You may use any 13 Potential Pets for now, until you get stronger ones from Odin Summons, or by farming Pet shards.
   - TIP: All 13 Potential Pets can be obtained as FULL PETS as you go through the adventure mode (from treasure chest rewards; except for the exclusive ones). 
Ragnarok Rush - early game team
(Fallen Bishop above is an exclusive pet for Swordsman, farmable from the Ruins. Can also be bought from the Guild Shop)
   - Succubus (Swordsman Only) = AoE Magic attack; Silences enemies; Easy to complete Bonus MATK+% from Collections.
   - Goblin Leader (All Except Swordsman)  = Nice early game tank; Easy to complete Bonus HP+% from Collections.
   - Angeling = Excellent Healer; Gets free stars/shards from rewards which is great!

How to Spot a Nice 13 Potential or any Pet?

   - Usually, F2P players will use them early game until they reach a certain number of Diamonds in the God of Wealth event.
Ragnarok Rush God of Wealth Event
   - Now, the best and easy way to spot a strong pet is to check their Collections info under their portrait art (click to view info). This will tell you which Pets are good depending on your current Pets. If you can complete a collection (no need to be in a party), that pet will get that bonus stat.
   - Skills with extra effects are also good, but would still depend on your playing style.

Here's Some Recommendations For Early Game:
   - Owl Baron = Decent unit with AoE magic attacks+self buff.
   - Mistress = AoE Physical Attack; Reduces Attack Crit Reduction stats of enemies. Good for Physical based teams like Archer or Thief class that uses criticals.
   - Wanderer = Decent melee DPS unit, can be obtained early on.
   - Golden Thief Bug = Nice AoE damage at melee range.
   - Strouf = Strong single target long ranged magic attacks+freeze.
   - Nine Tails = Nice single target long ranged physical attacks, buff with collections (bow user alternative to Mistress).
   - Baphomet Jr./Atroce/Khalitzburg/Raydric = Physical attacks+effects; Easy ATK+15% bonus from collections and another ATK+15% if you have certain 14 Potential pets.
   - Other Support Type pets including Deviling are also ok, but very situational.

   - These units are still good as fillers for other modes early game. For example, when you are up against those Cats from Trials, you don't need a tank and/or a healer, so go full attack mode and use single target pets instead.

Quick Upgrade Tips (13 Potential Pets)
   - Get Blue gears from stages and upgrade them to 1~2 Stars early game, slowly upgrade to purple then yellow gears.
   - Level up and upgrade their skills until around Lvl 30~40 (or until you get better units from Summons for example), go higher for core pets like Angeling.
   - For Promotions, go until Blue+2 or Purple (temporary pets until you get better ones). Go higher until Orange+ for core Pets, like Angeling as main healer, Goblin Leader as main tank, or any preferred 13 Potential pet above until you get better ones.
   - Ignore their Enhance and Skill Trees for now, unless you can get their Shards for free, like Angeling.
Ragnarok Rush Battle Tips

Quick Battle Mode Tips

   - Learn how to coordinate combos to maximize damages. If possible, your best damager should go last to obtain maximum combo bonus.
   - Most of the time, bosses will use their 1st Special Skill once you are able to reduce their HP to around 50%~75%, or after doing a number of attacks.

   - Learn how to keep your tank alive until the end, either through survivability or by dealing fast damages. Timing is key here when using skills.
   - Sometimes, it is best to take out enemy tanks fast, then use their ranged units for charging up all SP for the next wave (except maybe for Thief class).
   - Control skills will not work on bosses, but stat reductions will.

Attacks and Skills
   - Melee units will attack units that are directly in-front of them, and will only move to a different row if there are no valid targets in-front that is within their attack range.
   - Shield type units have shorter reach so they will most likely get attacked more than your "Melee Attackers" under same row.
   - Not all melee units have splash attacks, most of them can only attack 1 target at a time.

   - When using AoE skills that needs to be dragged, just check the shadow of the enemies for easy targeting.
   - Ranged units will always attack the nearest target, unless when using special skills.

SP Bars (Yellow bars below HP bars)
   - Will get filled every time your character or pet attacks, gets attacked, or able to last kill an enemy. Bonus SP will also be given between waves of enemies.

Best Ways To Use Diamonds


Earning Diamonds

   - There are so many ways to earn Diamonds here, just go with the flow, complete all events that you can, and earn from rewards.

God of Wealth (Limited Event)
Ragnarok Rush God of Wealth Event
   - Quickly increase your Diamonds early game by using this feature under the Events section (if still available for newbies). Obtain the required Diamonds and roll until at least 6,888 (F2P) or 18,888 (easier for new servers or for VIP).

Odin's Summon

VIP Players
   - Check offers and available Pets, the more shards you can get the better!
   - Note: First Charge Reward will give you a Moonlight Flower pet for free!
   - Optional: Use your Diamonds for the x10 Summon to get a random Full Pet. Ideally, a pet that is suitable with your Main character or team.

F2P Players
   - Just do a x10 Summon once or twice to get a full pet, then wait and complete the remaining x1 Summons to get another 1 full pet after a few days.
   - The higher the potential of Pets that you can get, the better, but all of them are pretty good early game.
   - Drawing more is optional, but better save your remaining Diamonds for crafting gears, getting cards, or for other things.

Exchange Pet Store:
   - Summons will accumulate some points, and can be exchanged for Pet shards. This is also a great way to get specific pets!

   - Recommendations:
   - Turtle General = For non Swordsman class job, get this asap as your 15 Potential tank (also farm shards from other sources). Replace Goblin Leader (use rebirth from craft menu to release pet, use 200 Diamonds if it's heavily upgraded).
   - Get any Pet that is needed to complete your main character's Collections, then your core Pets.

Purchase Energy

   - By default, non-VIP players can purchase up to 240 Energy for 100 Gems.
   - Do this everyday once you run out of Energy or if needed, to quickly advance through the game or to farm items like Pet/Card shards, upgrade/crafting materials, and more.

Buy Equips and Cards

   - Invest here once you have a nice core team, and need more boost.
   - Watch out for discounts as well and use these opportunities!
Ragnarok Rush Magic Boxes
Equipment Chests
   - Some gears can be farmed early game, but for Purple or higher grade gears, you need to craft them. Using x10 Summon will guarantee you a Golden Hammer and a Purple Gear. Check crafting section for more info.
   - Each summon will give you points which can be used to purchase weapons or crafting materials from the Exchange Shop.

Card Boxes
   - Full Yellow and Red Cards can be obtained from Card Boxes (x10 Summon). Each summon will give you points which can be used to purchase more cards from the Exchange Shop.
   - Aside from the Shop, cards can also be farmed from the Ruins, also check Event Achievements for more freebies.

For Dismantling Gears or Resetting Pets 

Access Through Crafting Section
   - Still optional and depends on how heavy their upgrades are. This will give you up to 100% of your resources back.
   - Example: If you have a heavily upgraded Goblin Leader and want to transfer the materials used to your Turtle General, your new main tank.
   - Example: If you want to transfer the upgrades of your heavily upgraded Purple Weapon (will get destroyed though) to your new Yellow Weapon without farming the required materials again.

For Enchanting Revival Items (Transmit)

   - Once you are able to unlock the first one (Megingjard), you may start enchanting to increase it's stats. The Transmit feature can be found in your main character's stats screen.
   - Use the "Epic" option as Rearing method to increase effectiveness.
   - Don't forget to save before exiting.

Re-roll Targets from the Cat Lab (Trials)

   - The first roll will only require 1 Diamond, which is great if you have limited pets. If you need to roll more, the next ones requires 20 Diamonds.

For Unlocking Treasure Chests (Power Battle/Faction Wars)

Ragnarok Rush - Faction Wars Chests
   - To unlock more chests from your Faction Assets, you'll need to spend some Diamonds (resets per day).
   - To get these chests, your faction must conquer any Field Mines or World Mines first.
   - I would highly recommend getting chests that contains crafting materials early game, aim for those hammers!

Other Methods

   - There are some methods that are also good, but it will require you to get a VIP account, or at least a VIP player to maximize effects. Example: For resetting Gateways to farm more shards per day.

Convert Gold
   - Only when needed to complete a task. Click on the "+" button next to your Gold.
Arena +1 Challenge
   - Optional: If you want to farm more Arena Mark points for the Arena Store.
Prontera Defense (Optional)
   - Used to draw more rewards at higher stages to get more Red Scale Shards, Friendship Medals, and higher chance to get crafting materials like Golden Hammers.
Eden Group Mission (Optional)
   - If you want to farm more Honor points, you can reset the Gateways for 500 Gems. Recommended at higher Lvls.

Best Ways To Use Gold or Zeny


Mainly Used For Upgrades and Fees

   - For upgrading skills, and to pay fees like Promotions, Enhances, Equipment upgrades and more.

Use as Guild Donations

   - This is where most of your Gold will go, upgrade your Guild's Lvl and it's features to increase their potential and effectiveness.
   - Donations will also give you some Guild hearts which can be used to purchase items from the Guild Store. Example: 100 = 200 Guild hearts.
   - Would recommend getting those Shard Boxes for quick Promotions, or those Pet/Card shards depending on what you currently need.

Use For Mysterious Summons

   - Nice method for farming Oridecons and Eluniums.
   - Use the x10 Summon to get 1 guaranteed Pet for your collections. This is also a good way to complete tasks that requires you to have a number of Pets.

Support Characters

   - DO NOT limit your team by only using high DPS units, also consider using Support units like Debuffers. Refer here for a list of Support Units.
   - Characters that focuses on inflicting status effects like Stuns are also effective as support/utility units, depending on your current character pool and/or battle situation.

Rankings Are Based On:

Lvl 80 Character Stats (Lvl 100 for Free Characters).
   - Note that Ranking Event limited characters will get higher stat bonuses than Gacha characters when limit breaking.

SS3 Attack Duration (Seconds):
   - SS3 Attack Duration in seconds (on-click until he/she can move again)
   - #.#sec* =  Average Time. Dual Wielders will get Max/Min speed depending on combos (10~50) but will only consider their average speed and DPS.
   - (Hits/Sec) determines how fast they can generate combos "per target".

Ranking Event - Burst DPS:
   - Overall Damage Output/Sec (including buffs, defense debuffs, non-elemental damage multipliers, crit damage, and more). Tested on a null enemy (no elemental advantage) with same armor rating, without gears. Elemental damage multipliers will be calculated according to their overall DPS rating.
   - Combo Generation and "how easy" SS3s can be spammed will affect DPS Ratings.

Ranking Event - Mob Clearing:
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) and Speed.
   - We will not consider Mob Clearing as ranking basis for now because it would be unfair for other limited ranged units.

Support Units that can buff, debuff enemies, or heal your team won't affect their rankings for now, since these characters' effectiveness also depends on their teammates' strengths.

   - Please note that these Tier Lists are for reference only, ranking basis is a work in progress and will never be final. It's not 100% accurate, but we'll do our best to polish the guides.

Other Helpful Notes

Character Rankings: Order List

   - Ordered By: Category > Combo Generation (Hits/Sec) > Faster Weapon Type > Name
   - Characters under same rank are not always treated as on par, because they also have different roles, which will also require different playing styles.

Elemental Bonuses and Weaknesses

   - Fire > Wind > Earth > Water > Fire (Holy < > Dark)
   - Characters with an Element that is in a disadvantage (except Holy/Dark) can only deal 75% damage.
   - Note that OS Characters and some selected characters have a Battle Skill or Skill Slot that increases their damages against Neutral element enemies.
