Ragnarok X: Next Generation (ROX) has interesting features, one of which is the Dead Branch, which reportedly have the ability to summon monsters and mini bosses.
Ragnarok X: Next Generation, also known as ROX, is a mobile massively multiplayer online-role playing game (MMORPG). It forms part of the Ragnarok franchise. ROX has maintained the spirit of the well-loved classic, Ragnarok Online. However, it has introduced various new features into the MMORPG, breathing fresh air into the already saturated genre.
The game invites players to the fantasy world of Midgard, where an evil presence threatens to tear the world apart. Gamers are able to get lost in the bright and luxuriant world, with its mesmerizing art style that captures the real charm of the game.
ROX enables players to create their own digital avatars in order to live in the world. Players can customize their avatar by equipping costumes, accessories and powerful gear. These avatars can also be constantly upgraded with better equipment systems, which will lead the player to proceed further in the game.
The game has a lot of interesting features, such as the pet system, social interactions, side-quests, gacha vending machines, and a Dead Branch, among others.
What is a Dead Branch?
The in-game description of this item states, “An ancient branch imbued with magic. Its mysterious powers can summon any living monster, and the mysterious Gold Poring. Adventurers can kill monsters for more drops and experience.” The mobs summoned by the Dead Branch will give the player a lot of base and job experience.
The description also states, “Kill gold poring to get 10 Odin’s Blessings. Killing a monster summoned by a Dead Branch does not use up Odin’s Blessings. This item can only be used on certain maps.” Using a Dead Branch does not consume any Odin’s Blessings, which is good if the player wants to maximize their in-game growth.
The above mentioned means that the Dead Branch is a usable item that summons a random non-MVP monster from a list of 463 monsters. This item can also summon mini-bosses, however, it cannot summon renewal monsters as ExperienceRO is a pre-renewal.

Tips for using a Dead Branch
Most well-geared characters can survive the monsters summoned by Dead Branches, however, some monsters have the ability to strip armour. This should not be much of an issue if the player has a Complete Path Set or an Elite Set.
It is recommended that players have 100 percent resistance to the Neutral property. Some monsters can inflict some ailment statuses on players. Luckily, most statuses can be cured by using royal jelly or panacea. However, Yggdrasil berry can fully store the player’s health.
If the player summons to many monsters at a time, they can all gang up against the player. This will make it too difficult for the player to use some or all of their skills. In this scenario, it is recommended to utilize splash damage from the Baphomet Card or a Collector path’s lower headgear.
