Added DiffLines:

* LastLousyPoint: Two Kharas in particular stick out. One for Acolytes to use the Resurrection skill ten times, and one for all classes to summon their Guardian fifty times (on top of the thirteen required to clear two other missions to access this one in the first place). The problem is that Resurrection has at best a base cooldown time of thirty minutes and requires another player to have gotten knocked down to use it, and Guardians have a flat thirty minute cooldown that cannot be reduced by any means, meaning that both of these are doomed to take an eternity. The former is especially bad for Acolytes planning to become Monks, as Monks '''can't''' cast Resurrection at all, meaning if they didn't complete the mission while they were an Acolyte, they're shit outta luck.


* JunkRare: Situationally, any blue Pandora's weapon that cannot be used by the character to receives it, as they cannot be traded. More generally, any white Pandora's weapon that can only be used by a second class is utterly worthless due to the fact that the job change quest was changed to just hand you a superior weapon at some point.

Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneNuke: Weapons obtained from Pandora's Box, provided they are correct for your character's class. In particular each first class is capable of using one of their second class' Pandora's Weapons (Swordmen can use the Sword, Acolytes can use the Mace, so on), so it's very possible to blunder into getting a blue-Rarity Pandora's weapon on a first-class character that can use it, and if you were intending to make them the second class that uses that weapon as well, you'll have something that won't be beaten until your level is in the 40s.

* BribingYourWayToVictory: Spinels, which allow instant resurrection instead of being forced to run back from your save point, and Graham Potions, which temporarily give 3,000 extra maximum HP (which can mean the difference between life and death in certain raids), as well as VIP Cards, which increase item drop rate and a modest boost to all stats, are very common items cited by players who accuse this game of having a PayToWin scheme.

In the current day this is less true, as both 1-Day VIP Cards and Spinels (but not the improved Blue Spinels) can be purchased from the NPC Dapara for Mastery Points, which being the combo EXP/currency that you also use to level up, isn't incredibly difficult to obtain past a certain point.



* DiscontinuityNod: The Recruit class from ''The Gate of the World'' lives on! Or at least, its uniform does--as a purchasable costume. The item description even mentions the Dampf Flinte steam guns Recruits use.

Added DiffLines:

* OrphanedSeries: While the game itself hasn't been shut down at the time of this writing, the development team assigned to it was removed following the game's investors pulling out. Though still playable, there are currently no updates planned and still many outstanding problems, the likelyhood of them ever being addressed being less than ideal.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerCreep: The game has it real bad. The first case is when shifting from Master Levels, as the initial gear for those hopelessly outclasses whatever you had up to that point, as well as the raid equipment that exists from before Master Levels were implemented. It happens again with Osiris equipment being a sharp power increase from the next best thing (Joser), and '''again''' but even harder with Eddga equipment, as that is where the Honing system becomes relevant, on top of being the first set to use Purple Runeholes (which can use a Rune that confers +80 to STR, INT, or AGI while earlier items can only use a +50 verison) and Gold Runeholes (which can use Cards dropped from [=MVPs=] instead of Runes, though those were added well after the Gold Runeholes were).

Added DiffLines:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Culvert and Culvert of Abyss definitely qualify.


Added DiffLines:

* OlympusMons: Many five-star monster summons qualify, as well as a good amount of four-star monster summons.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperMode: The 'Ymir Children' form of Normans after reaching Master Levels. The Noel equivalent is [[OneWingedAngel 'Awaken Darkness' or 'Awaken Soulmate']].

In November 2013, [[http://ro2.gnjoy.com/community/Notice/View.asp?BBSMode=10001&seq=531&curpage=1 Gravity announced that the Korean RO2 servers would be closing down on December 23rd 2013]].

Added DiffLines:

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[SatanicArchetype Baphomet]].
** Also, the Queen of Destruction, Ungoliant of Despair, and Dimension Immortal.


* StoryOverwrite: Noels, once you reach Maple Village, are treated as Elemento Academy graduates by NPC's, despite Noels having completely different backstories. It's especially jarring once you meet Zeras Hyperion in Prontera.
