Last Sunday, November 12, at Glorietta 2 activity center, Gravity Co. Ltd. hosted a Grand Party for the upcoming arrival of Ragnarok Journey in the Philippines.
Based on the popular MMORPG Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Journey is a browser MMORPG where players can battle against colorful monsters, gain new abilities and participate in quests in a fantasy world. It's a game everyone can play anytime, anywhere, without the need to download a client.
Before I discuss more details about Ragnarok Journey, here are some of the highlights from the grand party.
The whole event was hosted by popular GMA talents Betong Sumaya and Arianne Bautista. The event was packed with gamers and long time Ragnarok fans. Early birds even got some goodies including a cute sized poring plushie.
The COO of Gravity Co. Ltd. Mr. Yoshinori Kitamura was also present at the event he gave a speech about Ragnarok Journey and gave us some insight about other Gravity Games that will be released here in PH in the near future.
Of course I got an opportunity to have a pic with Mr. Yoshinori together with my blogger friend Kamila (first girl on the left) :)
Aside from the raffle and games there was also a cosplay competion where the contestants showcased their best RO character or NPC costumes, here's a pic of the winners.
This is me with the cute cosplayers from the Ragnarok booth, this groupie is actually a requirement for me to earn a passport stamp, that can be used to exchange for a price after the program. 😍
In the afternoon, we were given a chance to interview Ms. Liliana Bae (배 상 진) from the Business Division of Gravity, she answered all of our questions and discussed all the things we need to know about Ragnarok Journey PH.
Aimed toward casual gamers, Ragnarok has been re-imagined in an all new convinient AI assisted adventure style which makes grinding and leveling up easier. Battle monsters throughout the world of Rune Midgard and use your skills to traverse through new dungeons and zones.
Here are some of the important details about Ragnarok Journey:
* One of the best features of this casual MMORPG is the Auto Play! Turn it on and your character goes on full auto mode killing monsters and looting. When I asked Ms. Lillian if there will be tasks when actual player engagement will be needed, she said there will be some but most of the grinding can be done via auto mode.
* The game also allows players choosw a specialize class such as Mage or Swordsman at level 10.
* Characters can accumulate new abilities by manually adding skill points, and unleash devastating attacks on a menagerie of colorful fantasy monsters, the same model used in the classic Ragnarok Online.
*There will be quests from NPCs which a player can accomplish in exchange for daily rewards.
*The game can be played in any device, can be a pc, tablet, or a smartphone as long as your browser has a flash player, it's actually great for those who have a full time job but still want to play any Ragnarok related game.
*Also, when I asked Ms. Lillian about the availability of in game items/buffs etc. she said, there will be in game items you can purchase to help you level up faster but that doesn't mean that those who can't shell out extra cash can't win, it's a game that can be enjoyed by everyone who'll play it, either you spend extra cash or not.
BTW the event passport that I've mentioned earlier? I was able to complete all the needed stamps and I exchanged it for this big adorbs poring plushie after the interview 😍
Last but not the least of course we waited for the final performer of the day, 6 Cyclemind! 😁
And that's it!
