THE RULES We encourage all our players to support the community of RagniteRo by reporting rule breaking. These rules are subject to change and will be updated as seen fit by the staff. General Respect others at all times. This goes towards players as well as staff members. Do not AFK or dual client in Battlegrounds and automated events. Do not 'feed' in Battlegrounds. Players who are not attempting to help their team will be kicked from Battlegrounds and punished accordingly. Do not spam skills on town maps. Do not exploit or leverage bugs which could result in an unfair advantage unintended from the game’s design or which would disrupt the server environment, such as attempting to duplicate items or expose errors in monster behavior, etc. Such exploitative behavior will result in a permanent ban. Do not advertise other servers. You will be permanently banned. Talking about official servers is an exception to this rule. Do not conduct real money transactions (RMT) or trade between other servers/games. This rule applies outside the game as well and will result in a permanent ban for all players involved. Do not joke about conducting real money transactions (RMT). Players who do will find themselves permanently banned, it does not matter if a transaction did not occur. Do not attempt to sell or trade your account to another player. Daily rewards are one per person per day. Any attempts to bypass this restriction will result in a permanent ban. Rules are not limited to those written here. Just because it is not specifically mentioned does not mean it is allowed. Use common sense, and don't cause grief to anybody. Ban Status In the event of a ban, the following rules apply. All accounts involved will be permanently locked, this also includes the accounts being shared with a friend. No items in those accounts will be returned. If you shared gears to a banned player, you will have to accept this loss. This is why we discourage account sharing. This of course includes high valuable items such as MVP cards; if they are found in a banned account, we cannot return them to you no matter what. Attempting to avoid a ban, whether successful or not, will get you banned again. If we learn you knew of a friend avoiding a ban and you didn't tell the staff, you will be heavily punished as well. Server Status Do not use any third-party or macro software. This includes auto-teleport scripts, auto-feeders, auto-farming scripts, auto-hotkeys, auto-clickers, etc. Players found using such things to automatize tasks will be permanently banned. Botting, hacking or any use of a third party program is strictly prohibited. Do not modify your game files. Any modification that gives you an unfair advantage is not allowed (ex: altering sprites for skill delays, etc). The exception to this rule is cosmetic changes. Player Interaction Do not use inappropriate names for your character. The same applies for your guild and its emblem. Insulting, racism, sexism, discrimination, excessive swearing or any other offending comments can result in punishment. This applies in all chats. Do not beg for items or zeny from players or GMs. Asking for help is alright, but flat out asking for items is not. Do not harass other players. Do not use skills that would otherwise inhibit a player from playing the game as intended to be (Ice Wall abuse, Healing mobs, Warp Portal abuse, losing on purpose in Battleground, etc). Do not impersonate other players or GMs. You will be permanently banned. Do not make statements for the GMs. This means you are not allowed to misinform players and pretend a GM said something. Do not trade or send friend requests on PvP and WoE maps. You can use @noask or /notrade to prevent being harassed like this. Do not scam other players. Do not prevent players from entering a castle during WoE. This includes Bloody Branches at the entrance, Warp Portals, Ice Walls, etc. Your guild must have an unique emblem to participate in WoE. Do not converse about sexually explicit topics. Breaking these rules will result in a warning. Repeat offenses will get you muted or banned. Players vs Monsters Do not drop monsters on other players. This rule applies if the player is AFK Do not farm while being AFK (this includes macros, using reflect gears, etc). By being AFK, we also imply alt-tabbing to watch a movie, playing on another client, chatting with someone else, etc. If you simply stand still and do not move, you will be considered AFK. You must be actively interacting with the game while farming. Do not use skills to hinder others from participating in killing a MvP. Here are a few common examples: Do not use Warp Portal to attempt to warp players away. Do not cast Pneuma on the MvP to prevent ranged attacks from hitting the mob. Do not purposely rude attack the MvP to make it teleport. Do not hit monsters that belong to another player (kill-stealing). A monster belongs to another player if it is attacking or following him. MvPs are excluded from this rule. GM hosted events are free-for-all, unless stated otherwise by the GM. Do not loot items that do not belong to you. This rule does not apply for MvP loot; please use @autoloot to prevent other players from grabbing your items. Loot becomes free-for-all once the player has left the visible area. Homunculus loot belongs to the homunculus owner. Chat Rooms, Vending & Buying Rules Do not open a vending or buying shop while standing on the road. Not open a shop or chat within four tiles below or two tiles around a NPC or portal. Do not bypass the no-chat zone. Do not bypass the no-vending zone. When vending, do not put false advertisements in the shop title intended to deceive buyers. Do not set up a Buying Store intended to purchase items for less than their NPC value. Do not set absurd prices to reserve your vending spot. Do not attempt to block vending locations for the sole sake of reserving space in places with a vending limit. This includes keeping a spot by either selling overpriced items, buying items for a significantly underpriced amount or by setting up a buying shop with the sole intention of holding the spot for a vending shop. Do not put a character on top of another to block their shop creation or to reserve a spot.
