Ragnarok X: Next Generation (ROX) features a card system, with cards that have the ability to increase the character’s skills and provide additional abilities.
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 is developed by Gravity and published by Nuverse in South East Asia (SEA). The game was essentially launched for mobile devices operating on both iOS and Android.
ROX maintained the spirit of the well-loved classic Ragnarok Online. However, it introduces a lot of fresh features and innovative gameplay mechanics that a player would not find in the classic version. The rich lore of the Ragnarok franchise has been incorporated through the game’s main story and side quests. Players are able to watch real-time rendered animations of the storylines that will immerse them in the world of Ragnarok.
The game invites players to Midgard’s fantasy world to prevent a disaster that threatens to tear the world apart. Players can get lost in this bright and luxuriant world with the mesmerizing art style, which captures the real charm of the game.
Players are able to create their own digital avatars to live in the world. The player can customize their avatar by equipping costumes, accessories and powerful gear. The avatars can also be constantly upgraded with better equipment systems, which will lead the player to proceed further in the game.
Players can also enhance their character’s gear through “refine, upgrade and enhance.” One of the enhancements players can do is embedding cards into their character’s armour.
What are cards?
Cards can be compounded into any character’s weapons, armour and accessories. Each card has the ability to improve the character’s skill. For example, the female thief bug card increases the player’s critical damage with 60 percent.
Cards can be divided into three categories: white, blue and gold. White cards are the most common, and players can obtain them quite easily. While gold cards are the rarest, with a low drop rate. However, the gold cards provide the best increases.
Collecting these cards will also allow the player to deposit the card on “Awakening”, in order to get additional points.
Ways to obtain cards in Ragnarok X: Next Generation
The best way to obtain a card is by a random drop from monsters. All monsters in ROX can drop cards, which all have different effects. However, if the player wants to get a card this way, they need to be super patient, as it is more difficult than gacha.
Each monster has a 0.1 percent chance of dropping a card. Such a low drop rate can be very frustrating, as players can farm for hours and not loot a single card.
Quests and events
Players are able to get cards from quest and event rewards. The second way to get cards is through event prizes. For example, players can obtain cards through the Daily Sign-in Bonus. On certain days, players will get an Old Card Album. However, the player cannot choose which card they want, as it is a random card. Only players who have reached level 80 can obtain the Old Card Album.
Another event is the Kingdom Pass. By completing specific tasks, the player can earn points from the event. Every time the player increases the level of their class, they will get certain prizes.
Players can also farm up to 360 card fragments. These can be farmed by a random number generator (RNG) on the world bosses (MVP). Players an also fight mini bosses to farm a gold card.
Cat hand corporation coin (gacha)
For 60 coins, players can pull for a card in the vending machine. Players can collect the coins by doing the daily Chamber of Commerce (CoC) quests. However, these coins can also be bought from the exchange centre.
Players can also obtain the cards through the card vending machine. This method is seen as the easiest way to obtain cards. However, players need to complete a certain number of CoC missions to do one gacha trial. Basic cards require 35 gacha coins, fair cards require 150 gacha coins, while Mini, MVP and Valkyrie cards require 1800 gacha coins.
Players should remember that the vending machine will give them a random card. Even though this method is easy, players will not always get the card they want.
The final way to get a card is through the exchange centre. Players are able to buy the card they want as long as it is available. However, players should be prepared to pay large amounts of crystals and diamonds, as the cards are very expensive.
Cards can increase the character’s abilities and provide it with additional skills. However, obtaining these cards can be very difficult. Cards can be obtained in monster drops, quests, events, gacha and the exchange centre.
