Over the past few months a lot of people have approached me and asked if I was ever going to bring back the “Classic EssenceRO”. You know, the one where 3rd jobs were enabled with adjusted skills, pre-renewal mechanics, everyone could level to 170 and it was an all around awesome experience for all?
Well, I’m happy to announce that I’m going to be bringing eRO Classic BACK!
In 2017 I started my journey into recoding eRO and it’s been a whirlwind of fun and a crap ton of learning experiences. I’ve made so many friends and all around great people on my journey and I’m happy to be able to give you all what you’d like.
I don’t have an official reopening date for the Classic server, but keep your eyes peeled to the website & discord to see future announcements.
Please know that this Classic version will not be nearly as updated as the main Renewal server. There will be updates here and there, but I’m merely putting the server up for all of the feels.
I’m going to be keeping a lot of the items/gear in the game if you played with us in the past (2017+), however I will be wiping all MVP Cards and high-end gear. I will be adjusting the MVP Card/Mini Boss drop rate to .3 and MVP Gear will be dropped at 30x instead of 50x.
The Classic eRO server will require a separate client download (I’m going to be using a 2015 client so that if PVP becomes a thing again the client won’t lag everyone out as it did with the 2018 clients).
