Ragnarok Online 2 Gets A New Playable Race This Week


Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second is receiving an update in North America, which will introduce the game’s first playable non-human race of characters—the Noel.



The Noel update will be released tomorrow, September 11th. The Noel are an Elf-like race that start out by using melee attacks as well as area ranged attacks. At level 25, they can choose to become either Crecentia or Soul Makers.


Crecentia will continue to use a number of Alter skills, with the addition of debuff skills as well. Meanwhile, Soul Makers give up Alter skills for death magic, healing abilities and strengthening buffs. You can watch a trailer for the Noel update above.
