Server Rules

Recommended Posts

When signing up for a new account with RelicRO,
you agree to our Rules and Regulations and you have read our Privacy Policy, including our Terms of Agreement.

 

In any case, RelicRO reserves the right to change any rule without prior notice.
Strict enforcement of our regulations is absolute and found offenders will be punished at our discretion.

 

 

 The server-wide rules stated here will be strictly enforced in-game, and in some cases, outside of the game and will be handled on a case-to-case basis. Both Players and Staffs are advised to follow them, including cases and/or behaviors not explicitly pointed out that could be considered unsuitable to prevent any unwanted incidents.

 

ACCOUNT INSURANCE

  • Game and Forum Accounts are of high value and should be safeguarded accordingly. You are solely responsible for the protection of your accounts and their login credentials along with the actions taken upon them. In the event that account information sharing cannot be helped, you risk your chances of getting any assistance from us should any setback happens.
  • We do not approve nor encourage players this kind of affairs and we cannot be held responsible for any actions that may lead to loss of any account and/or items. In any case of rule violation, any account, Game and/or Forum, may be irrevocably terminated, deleted or cancelled by the Administration Team's discretion.

 

SOCIAL DECORUM

  • We enforce a strict English Only Policy (EOP) over our Broadcaster NPC. English is the universal language that is why we encourage players to speak in English on public chats in our main town, Prontera City, but not force it as a rule. Players are allowed to speak any regional language in minor towns.
  • Harassment comes in different forms of behavior that are offensive in nature, and will not be tolerated. Harassment may include, but not limited to, verbally abusing an individual/group, stalking, threatening, embarrassing, spreading rumors and public defamation through public chats or private messages.
  • Spamming, scrolling, flooding of text chats, skills, and spells are not allowed. Pubs such as Chat Rooms and Buying Shops must be situated at least five (5) cells away from NPCs, preferably on sidewalks of every town. Additionally, Vend Blocking, Stacking and Spot Hogging are immediate grounds for instant character disconnection on top of the usual punishment for repeated offenses.
  • Pub's that are near the NPC's will be punished accordingly. On the first offense he/she will be verbally warned. Please see sanctions below
PUNISHMENT

1st Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Verbal Warning
2nd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 45 Minute Jail
3rd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 24hr Jail Time


Repeated offenses will result in an additional Mute/Jail time.
Staffs are entitled to give heavier punishment depending on the severity of the behavior.

 

IDENTITY FRAUD

  • Each Player's identity should be exclusive. We do not tolerate stealing another player's name with the malicious intent to impersonate them and cause other forms of damage in any way.
  • Each Staff's identity must be respected. Character names with any form of [GM] prefix included in its creation for the purpose of imitating and claiming to be a Staff are strictly prohibited.
PUNISHMENT

1st Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Permanent Ban of the account and all related accounts
2nd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Permanent Ban of the Mac Address (Gepard Block)

 

IN-GAME THIEVERY

  • Looting is the act of deliberately picking up another player's item (monster dropped or incidental dropped) without permission, and will not be tolerated. We encourage players to utilize the @autoloot In-Game command and toggle Drop Lock Inventory option at all times to prevent looting incidents.
  • Scamming is generally prohibited. All dealings with the intention, either implicit or explicit, to deceive or mislead in the form of a trade, vend, or other kinds of transaction are not permitted. All scamming reports will have different punishments and will be taken on a case-to-case basis with total discretion.
  • Hacking is any illegal action relating to another player's Account. This includes, but is not limited to, security exploits, packet analyzers, password cracking, any brute-force and spoofing attacks. It is in our full discretion on how to handle hacking cases that are not brought upon by server security issues.
  • Bypassing the disabled Homunculus Autoloot feature using the Mercenary System will not be tolerated. Intentionally ignoring specific changes that have been made to cause any players from abusing certain set-ups within RelicRO will result in extreme disciplinary actions.

BATTLE & EVENT POLICY

  • Proper etiquette must be regarded without exception on Battle and Event Zones. Any form of exploit, harassment, obstruction and griefing from any player or group is prohibited. Social Decorum Rule applies.
  • The multi-client limit is implemented on Battle and Event Zones to prevent any misconduct that may occur during official server happenings. Anyone caught resorting to utilize alternative ways of bypassing the game set-up to abuse this regulation will be dealt with accordingly.
  • All guilds are expected to act accordingly. Each guild must represent their group properly starting with their emblems. The misuse of guild emblems and malicious tactics to purposely gain advantage or inflict disturbance in any way especially during War of Emperium will not be tolerated.
  • Show off your guild pride by having one unique emblem per guild! Please refrain from copying the emblems of other guilds, as this can lead to confusion in the heat of battle.
    Emblems Must Be Visible.
    Your emblem cannot be transparent, and its design must be over 50% visible to other players. If the emblem is made in a way that allows it to blend easily into the background, that's not allowed! Again, violation of this guideline can lead to confusion during WoE and is highly discouraged. 
  • Battleground participation on multi-client will not be tolerated. Players who opted to Idle will be punished accordingly. Players who are caught leeching the Battlegrounds on another client will have their involved accounts be held liable for punishment of the offense with the exception of the following activities: idling in towns, vending, or any action that is not related to participating in the Battleground Event.
  • Player vs Player Farming anyone caught abusing in selected areas (Go 15 and PVP Room) will be punished accordingly.  Chain killing resurrecting dummy accounts or players to gain points will be both punished.

Multi-clienting while farming using the previously mentioned method will result in a similar punishment on all concerned accounts.
  • Third-Party Program (3PP) is an application component that is designed to work with or around the server that is not owned by RelicRO is strictly prohibited. These software programs interfere directly with the in-game player experience, impede the competitive nature of the game and provide measurable player advantage.

  • Real Money Trading (RMT) is the buying or selling the following in-game assets by means of real life monetary transaction: Accounts, Items, Currency or other RelicRO resources. These transactions violate our Terms of Service and are deemed illegal and strictly forbidden.

The open-world's competitive edge is a very tricky and high-strung point of question for arguments when undesirable incidents take place.
RelicRO does not approve any acts of deliberate misconduct hence, punishments will be enforced as we deem fit.

 

DEFINED: KILL STEALING

  • Kill Stealing is to intentionally provoke, attack, and damage another player's target in a way that kills it, giving you the experience and occasionally, the ownership of the mob's drop, even though you did not do the major part of the damage. This offense is considered a form of harassment and will not be tolerated.
  • Alchemist/Creator and their Homunculus are both bound and are equally liable under this rule. The monsters that an Alchemist/Creator's Homunculus is fighting belong to that player, on the contrary, do not allow your Homunculus to attack another player's targeted monsters as it is considered as kill-stealing.
  • All mobs flagged as MVPs (Boss-type Monsters, excluding Mini-Boss Monsters) are considered Free-for-All and are exempted in this rule. Please make it a habit to use our @noks command to prevent such instances. On the other hand, the general Griefing Rule still applies under this category.
PUNISHMENT

1st Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Verbal Warning
2nd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 10 Minutes Mute
3rd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 30 Minutes Mute
4th Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 60 Minutes Mute

Repeated offenses will result in being Muted while Jailed.
The punishment length will depend on the severity of the succeeding cases.

 

DEFINED: GRIEFING

  • Griefing
    • The act of deliberately sabotaging, disturbing and causing distress to other players' gameplay using aspects of the game in unintended ways.
    • The general Griefing Rule is applicable and covers Player versus Environment (PvM and MvP) settings as well as on any Battle and Event settings.
  • Mob Training
    • The accumulation of numerous monsters, luring and dragging them as a mob. It is not entirely restricted on less populated maps.
    • Avoid mob training if you cannot properly kill the trail of mobs and wind up jeopardizing other players and obstructing their gameplay.
  • Mob Dropping
    • This happens when a player purposely teleports or uses Hide skill, losing a monster or a mobs in such a way that the said monster/mobs attacks an unwary player or party.
    • The spamming of DBs or BBs, or changing a monster's class (using a Polymorphic Accessory or an Azoth Weapon) near an unsuspecting player is considered as mob dropping.
  • DB and BB Spam
    • All areas within the server have set map flag of no dead branch hence making it impossible for anyone to summon monsters using DB/BB.
    • We have a Dead Branch Room where players are free to spam DBs/BBs and summon monsters to kill. Summoned monsters' duration is 3~5 minutes.
PUNISHMENT

1st Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Verbal Warning + 30 Minutes Jail
2nd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ Verbal Warning + 60 Minutes Jail
3rd Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 120 Minutes Mute and Jail
4th Offense ᛫᛫᛫ 3 Days Temporary Ban

Repeated offenses will result in being Muted while Jailed.
The punishment length will depend on the severity of the succeeding cases.

 

DEFINED: FREE-FOR-ALL

  • Free-for-All
    • Common term used in Ragnarok Online, often abbreviated as FFA, where anyone can attack a monster regardless of who summoned it, who is attacking it, or who is being attacked by it.
    • Free-for-All is a classification applied to certain types of monsters: MVPs, Town Invasion Monsters, Hocus-Pocus & DB/BB-summoned Monsters and Staff-Hosted Event-summoned Monsters.
  • Restrictions
    • The Free-for-All classification does not apply to Mini-Boss Monsters or other types of monster in the least.
    • Attacking non-FFA monsters is considered as Kill Stealing. General Griefing Rule still applies.

 

 

This section constitutes clarifications and pointers to avoid the monotonous incidents of item loses for whatever reason that may have caused it.
We reserve the right to decline requests and refuse any assistance to anyone who failed to comply with our guidelines.

 

PLAYER LIABILITY

  • Account Sharing
    • Do not give out your In-Game account information to anyone unless you are willing to take the risk of losing your items and/or the account itself.
    • If in any case your In-Game account has been implicated, secure it immediately via the Reset Password option on our Website's Account Panel.
  • Item Lending
    • Lending items, including your in-game account, to anyone out of sheer trust is discouraged to a great extent.
    • If you lend another person your in-game valuables, there's a huge chance that you will not be able to get it back.
  • Item Transferring
    • Avoid asking for another person's help when transferring items from one character to another, or from one account to another and vice versa.
    • The use of Kafra storage or running of dual clients for transferring items from characters and accounts is the best possible choice there ever is.
  • Mannerly Vending
    • Vend and buy very carefully. Make sure you always set the correct price for vending and buying shops. Know how to count from one to zero.
    • Players frequently overlook putting in the right price for their items and end up selling or buying them way cheaper than intended. Price checks are a thing.
  • Trading Know-Hows
    • Ensure that you are trading with the right player. Whether it's gifting or trading items, always double-check the player's name atop your Trade window.
    • As a general guideline, make sure to gift or trade items with the other player on secured or less populated areas to prevent any item lose due to negligence.

GOLDEN RULE

  • Random Item Slips
    • We encourage everyone to toggle the Drop Lock option available on your Inventory (Alt+E) window. The Drop Lock option is always toggled on by default.
    • As a rule of thumb when moving items from your Inventory to your Storage or any Trade windows, have your Equipment window open to prevent dropping any items.
  • Trading Stratagems
    • Never trade with people with a suspicious character setup. When performing a deal with another player of any kind, take it slow. Don't be too hasty!
    • Crucial information said on public chats and to so-called trusted people can be used against you. Realize that the possibility of anyone betraying you is real.
  • Item Over-Upgrading
    • RelicRO is using late-2013 Client which is more stable and has more convenient features than any previous Ragnarok Online clients out there.
    • The maximum upgrade for armors and weapons is +10. With our client's safety features, accidentally over-upgrading your gears is now a thing of the past.
  • Scamming Awareness
    • Please use common sense. Always remain practical and refrain from placing your trust in players that you are not 100% familiar with. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.
    • Do not fall for anyone claiming to be a RelicRO Staff. We will never ask for your usernames and passwords and will never give out free items unless it's officially announced.
  • Non-Refundable RelicRO Items
    • All RelicRO items acquired via Donation Tickets are considered final and non-refundable. If you wish to avail of our Donation Tickets, please click here.
    • All of the transactions made are safe and rest assure that your personal information is properly secured within our system! Happy Shopping!
NOTE/WARNING:

Our staffs are no longer entertaining any hacking issues; Protect your account using @security commands.
We do not entertain any scamming issues any related to Gambling.
We do not entertain any scamming incidents such as lending/borrowed items.
Please be careful in transacting with other players both in-game and in real life. We will not entertain reported cases coming from social media platform related to scamming, hacking and such.

DO NOT EXPLOIT BUGS. Report them immediately to any GM or message us in Facebook/Discord. Anyone caught exploiting bugs will result into permanent ban.
DO NOT USE patterned passwords such "token1 / password1" most of the recent cases we received are using this method.
DO NOT TRUST/DOWNLOAD any program that you think is "FREE 3PP/AHK/BOT" most of them are key-loggers.
