Silly me. I shouldn’t have hoped that the Valhalla Server would last for as long as Philippine Ragnarok Online (pRO) would be up. In case you’re lost on what I’m talking about, the Valhalla Server of pRO closed on the evening of the 28th of January, 2013 (Monday). MY beloved server … OUR beloved server … gone.
To make matters worse, it was announced that accounts from the Valhalla Server would be merged with accounts from New Loki, aka “server merge”, and the new server resulting from such would be named, New Loki. Not much inspiration in naming; they reasoned out that the alphabetical order of the two server names was the basis.
So I recently made a new friend on Philippine Ragnarok Online, Valhalla Server in the name of “Duke the Ripper”. He’s a Shadow Chaser with the Rogue skill, Scribble.
So how did I meet him? I was walking around Prontera when I saw graffiti on the ground saying, “Amalayer”. It caught my attention since it was the height of a nationalized social issue that circulated around social networks. Anyway, I was amused by the scribble that I asked Duke the Ripper, who was sitting nearby, if I could take a screenshot. I think he didn’t understand that I meant to take a screenshot of the scribble that he did since he asked, “Ng ano?”
I was finally able to turn my Priest into a High Priest. The transcendence / rebirth quest is standard for any job class. The only problem we encountered was in decreasing both our zeny and weight to zero. For the zeny, we simply bought blue gemstones and arrows until we had no zeny left. As for the weight, we were carrying two cards at the time. Because we couldn’t put them in Kafra Storage, we thought of just dropping the cards out of our inventory before talking to the Valkyrie and after transcending into a Novice High, we would simply pick them up. However, that wasn’t the case. After transcending into a Novice High, the Valkyrie promptly teleported us to our town of origin (Prontera), leaving the cards in Valhalla. 😦
We definitely recommend a fix to this transcendence / rebirth quest, specially if a player does not want to employ a dual client system and does not know of any players he/she can trust to hold items for. The experience that we had was definitely disappointing, but for the least part, we now know to hold off buying cards until after transcending.
