Features Overview

Beginner Equipment Package

Created to bridge the gap between new players and current players, the beginner equipment allows you to participate in Battlegrounds, PvP and War of Emperium faster than other most other RO servers.

Each piece of equipment is based on an existing item, is slotless and account bound.

They are available to everyone as soon as you start playing. Find ‘Timmy’ at amatsu 238 212, ask him for information on anything, then ask “How do I get strong” to get your freebies.

Rental System

Alongside the beginner equipment, we also have a rental system, which allows you to temporarily own equipment. The system uses Rental Tickets to exchange for rental items.

After an item expires, any compounded cards are returned to your inventory.

How to obtain Rental Tickets?

Rental Tickets can be obtained through three methods.

  1. Once per 24 hours, you will automatically receive 2-4 Rental Tickets (sent directly to your inventory).
  2. One time only, you can talk to the Beginner Guide (amatsu 238 212) to receive 10 Rental Tickets. To claim them, go through all the dialogue screens.
    • Read ‘Basic Server Information’.
    • Read ‘Where to level?’.
    • Read ‘How do I get strong?’.
  3. Every 1~3 hours of non-idle play time, you will receive 1 Rental Ticket. Time depends on the types of activities you participate (Battlegrounds, Ranked PvP and War of Emperium speed up the process).

An account can claim 150 Rental Tickets in its lifetime.

Where to use Rental Tickets?

Look for the Item Redeeming Services NPC at amatsu 241 214, then choose “Exchange Rental Tickets”.

Item Redeeming Services

What items can be rented?

Please see the BlackoutRO Wiki for detailed information on the Rental Ticket Store. Click ‘Item Redeeming Services’, then click ‘Rental Ticket’.

Please note that once you have spent 90 or more Rental Tickets, you will only be able to rent non-slotted headgears, with the exception of 3D Glasses, Hood of Death and Reisz Helmet.

Battlegrounds

Here on BlackoutRO we have a highly customized Battlegrounds. We tried to create the most enjoyable experience possible.

All you have to do is type @joinbg and you’re in!

We have four modes to choose from – Castle Conquest, Flavius, Krieger von Midgard and Team Deathmatch. When joining the queue, you can vote for the mode you want to play. The mode with the most votes is played in the next game!

For participating in Battlegrounds, you receive War Badges. These badges can be traded for a great array of items. Go to our Wiki for more details on War Badge exchangeables (click ‘Battlegrounds Manager’).
