MMORPG.com Correspondent Jason Alexander writes this guide for beginners in Ragnarok Online.
Ragnarok is an online role-playing game based on Norse mythology. Users can create characters and venture off alone or in groups in far-flung fantasy worlds full of adventure. Players can select from a wide range of job classes that suit their individual playing style. Each job class comes with a unique array of skills and abilities. The strengths and weaknesses of these classes encourage players of different types to form parties. Ragnarok has an easy-to-control interface. Most of the basic functions can be controlled by using the mouse. Users can also customize the interface to optimize usability and comfort.
Ragnarok Online has two genders for characters, male and female. You must select your proper gender when registering. Because users play character based off of their gender, community involvement becomes livelier with a willingness to participate. You can chat with other players as well as get married within the game with another character of the opposite gender. There are wedding dresses available as well. Depending on gender, job and skills can vary as well. Through job changes, male characters can become a "Bard" while female characters can become a "Dancer" which both have their own special skills.
