Ragnarok Odyssey Ace Opens Doors To The New Yggdrasil Tower

ROACE-2 ROACE-3

Not to be confused with Yggdrasil Labyrinth, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace has a whole new dungeon called the Yggdrasil Tower. This tower creates random dungeons by shuffling enemy and room placement.

 

Speaking of enemies, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace has new monsters like the Niohoggr. Ragnarok Odyssey is a multiplayer game, but if you prefer to fight creatures from Norse mythology offline you can add a Mercenary Helper to your party.

    It’s better, but $$$. :

    • Ferrick

      don’t forget on how the game boards will go crazy with asking for equipments and cards to be near’d to them

      • TheExile285

        oh god, I hated that. couldn’t stay on the RO GameFAQ board for longer than a week.

        • Ferrick

          agreed lol, just glad that SS doesn’t have trading or else the boards will be full with “near me”s

      • Go2hell66

        i am guilty of that unfortunately…

        on the plus side i finally had a legit reason to use near otherwise i would have deleted it if that was an option.

        its like the app was designed so you could secretly stalk people or something…

  • TheExile285

    Part of me wants to be interested. The other part doesn’t care because SS is right around the corner and hopefully D3 will pick up God Eater 2 for Vita.

    I got really bored with RO after 30 hours >_>

    already 20 hours into the SS demo lol

    the new monster and environment designs look nice though

    • Vash bane

      RO no fun?

      • TheExile285

        Its pretty repetitive. I’m curious to see how RO:Ace turns out since they are adding that skill system and a new dungeon but the game needs some more classes to keep thing fresh.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Funny how this game seems to be more focused on Norse myth than the original online title it’s based on x3

    If XSEED decides to localize the PS3 version, I’d love to play it. I realize it’s just a Monster Hunter clone, but it seems like a clone with some personality and charm. I just hope it isn’t like RO where there’s only certain builds that work and you need a team of 20 just to stand a chance against boss monsters x3

    • Domii

      Why is every hunting type action game consider a Monster Hunter clone around this parts?

      • TiredOfMyOldUsername

        Like how so many think every MMORPG are clone of World or Warcraft and every FPS are clone of Call of Duty.
        Peoples like to think games are all clone of the most popular titles…

      • Go2hell66

        well none of them have really been as successful as MH has

        • Domii

          Then by your logic every FPS is a clone of Call of Duty.

          • Go2hell66

            Well i don’t play FPS games because they all look the same to me

            btw i’m not saying all hunting action games are the same, im just pointing out why people compare everything to mh

        • http://steamcommunity.com/id/noumi_kud Kudryavka

          I think it’s pretty much what you said. Popularity affects how well known it is, so you use that game as an example.

          It’s like how every single new MMORPG -ever- will get compared to WoW. I don’t like it when others do that ’cause it’s not exactly fair with so many years of experience, dosh AND a big team like Blizzard’s, but eh, I just try not to let it get to me. I’d rather spend that time enjoying the games I do and leave them be

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Well, because the main motivation of them creating this game is to capitalize on Mon Hun popularity?(Even though Mon Hun do take many idea from Phantasy Star Online)

      I havent played this one but I used to think that God Eater was a MH clone also until I played the game. That said, this one looks more close to PSU (or PSO2 if you consider the ability to jump) since is more fast paced from what I have seen in videos so far. Will try the demo later so I can be able to talk about it better when I get the chance.

      Have you seen some of the builds pre renewal that could solo MVPs? There used to be a bunch before, I havent seen many lately since I dont play as often but there definitely are some out there. Now you need some really good gear though as opposed to watching a super novice fight a Orc Lord with a novice gear set for 30m with no support and getting the MVP drop.

      I don’t know, Monster Hunter clone is being too generalistic about describing the game.

      I mean, to be fair, in that respect, Monster Hunter could have been said to take from Ragnarok due to a number of RO main questlines involved killing huge monsters.

      Add to this the fact that Odyssey’s upgrade and equipment system ties in more with the online game

      If anything, the game format of Odyssey is good for people who like RO but can’t afford to sink as much time into it as they want to.

    What is the “Yggdrasil Labyrinth” ?

    • Claud12

      Its in Etrian Odyssey series. Massive main dungeon in the Yggdrasil tree :)

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I hope that this one will play better than the first one.T_T I like how pretty the game looks but, it kinda lack the charm that Mon Hun gives me last time.
    Hoping that this one will be able to give me more hunting genre love.^_^

  • The Watcher

    Would be nice to see some special gifts and knick knacks for players who beat the game or have save data from the first.

  • shion16

    I dont like the new HUD.
    The nicknames are huge,theres no map and theres too many touch controls on screen
