** ''VideoGame/RagnarokDS'' (for, [[CaptainObvious obviously]], NintendoDS): starring a Novice called Ales ([[HelloInsertNameHere whose name you can change]]) who wants to build a guild and help people in need. In his journey, he meets Sierra (a Shaman), Lucifi (Swordsman), Lisir (Mage), and Viselc (Thief). In addition of two exclusive classes (Dark Knight and Shaman), it also has a multiplayer feature called Tower Of Mirage (the concept [[AscendedExtra later become]] the basis of Endless Tower in the online version).

* BoringButPractical: Pretty much the basis of the entire game. Wizards and most classes alike tend to be strapped with one main, powerful skill to use throughout their entire leveling career, and most flashy, rare weapons tend to not be anywhere near as powerful as customized "normal" weapons.
** Should be noted, though, that in a lot of cases, for these weapons to be truly better than standard 'rares', the risks involved in the upgrade process are huge, and involve the application of often-times even rarer upgrade items and ''huge'' amounts of money. Thus, a 'customised normal weapon' of that level is usually an extremely rare item in and of itself. Indeed, even ''rarer'' than this is the fully upgraded/customised rare weapon, which, while of such rarity as to be nigh-impossible to acquire, is just plain frightening when it does turn up.
** Which is part of the game creator's frustration. A common weapon for magic user is a regular, easy to obtain rod with 4 slots plus 4 cards either decreasing casting time quite decently or increasing magical attack. Since they don't hit anything with it, the upgrades don't matter either and can last in some cases until the endgame.

This is because of cases, for these weapons to be truly better than standard 'rares', the risks involved in the upgrade process are huge, and involve the application of often-times even rarer upgrade items and ''huge'' amounts of money. Thus, - a 'customised normal weapon' of that level weapon being lost to upgrading is usually an extremely rare item in and of itself. Indeed, even ''rarer'' at least a smaller loss to replace than this is the fully upgraded/customised losing a rare weapon, which, while of such rarity as to be nigh-impossible to acquire, is just plain frightening when it does turn up.

and can last in some cases until the endgame.so people will usually favour using upgraded versions of normal weapons rather than rare ones.

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedUseMagicalDevice:
** The Sage/Professor class can make scrolls to do elemental works. This is used to mess with a target's element if the Sage/Professor or the party is focused in an element the odd mob isn't.
** Several monsters drop scrolls which allow anyone to use skills as long as the scrolls last. This has led to priests casting Lightning Bolt or Fire Wall in the fields just to mess with some people.
** The Rune Knight class (advanced form of Lord Knight) are able to make runestones, which they can then use to cast some unique spells, and they expire afterward.

** From the same class, 'Solar, Lunar and Stellar Union', which lets them go [[DragonBall Super Saiyan]] on enemies, at the cost of losing a percentage of their HP ''per attack''. The fact that you need a buff from a Soul Linker, their counterpart class, makes one wonder if it's really worth it.

* UnpleasableFanbase: This seems to be the case so far with the sequel (in beta as of this writing). While many fans are delighted to see a version of Ragnarok Online with modern MMO features (minimap, action bars, quest tracker, etc.), many others are upset over changes that they feel make the game unlike its predecessor. Some of these complaints include the removal of the Novice class (largely responsible for the YouHaveResearchedBreathing trope below), the lack of manually allocated stats, the switch from a birds-eye camera to an over-the-shoulder camera, and the addition of modern MMO features (minimap, action bars, quest tracker, etc.).
** Just to note, the original has the above features. The only one it didn't have during its initial few years of operation was the quest tracker (though this feature is, admittedly, a little unreliable).
This list shows the last 10 events of 99. Show all.
