YMMV / Ragnarok M Eternal Love

Go To

  • Broken Base: In regards to Third-party Add-ons, the playerbase is divided into several groups: those who want the ones who use any kinds of Add-ons to be permanently banned, those who only use them out of necessity and wouldn’t dare to touch the ones that are easily detected by the developers, and those who don’t care about them since the information gathering can be done quickly anyway.
  • Demonic Spiders:
    • Bongun in Payon Cave.
    • Advertisement:
    • The * version of Rideword in Glast Heim Hall.
    • The Guardians in Clock Tower 1F.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Jormungard is getting this treatment by both the playerbase and developers in each of his subsequent appearances starting from Clock Tower’s Main Quest. This is the same Jormungard who cursed the bloodline of Gaebolg royal family in the lore of the online game, and is mentioned as one of the Apostles of Freya in the manhwa, anyway.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Ambrose and Tammi’s sidequest, despite its early availability, is highly regarded by the playerbase as one of the best quests story-wise.
    • Carried over from Ragnarok Online, the NPCs that would become Biolabs monsters are still popular here. Special mentions to Egnigem Cenia and Laurell Weinder, whose characters get a touching Adaptation Expansion.
  • Epileptic Trees: Exactly how the game’s story fits into the timeline of Ragnarok Online is still up for debates. It’s generally accepted that the game is a Prequel, but when it takes place in accordance to the online game and the original manhwa is where the problem lies. The chief of Payon, Himmelmez, and Bijou are still around when they’re killed off during the manhwa’s story, for example.
  • Guide Dang It!:
    • Several quests don’t have indicators for the object or person required to advance them.
    • The hidden photo spots, although this can be mitigated by turning on Camera mode while walking around a map. Even then, there are several spots that require the player to do certain actions before the picture can be registered in Adventurer Book.
    • There’s also the Achievement system. Most of them require time and investment, but there are some achievements that can be Lost Forever if the player doesn’t consult to a guide. The achievements related to cooking and marriage/divorce system are infamous for this.
    • Starting from Glast Heim, the Minstrel will ask the player about the previous stories from other Minstrel. Given how Play the Game, Skip the Story is in full effect here, the player is expected to either read the stories or consult to a guide.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • The unique Bathories from April 2019 event’s extra daily quest, mostly because they can do One-Hit Kill to the players who are within their attacking range.
    • Ariel, and later Stefanie, because they’re in every available maps of the game regardless of how dangerous the area is.
  • Memetic Loser: Assassins, especially in regards to Endless Tower party run.
  • Memetic Molester: Orc Lord, due to its new Card artwork.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Save the Smokies from extinction! Explanations 
    • Play Moderately and Spend Wisely. Explanations 
    • Comparisons between Lusya (the mermaid you help in Prontera Culvert’s main quest) and Astolfo were rampant due to the translation’s misgendering her as a “he” in Adventurer Notebook. This has died down ever since a patch fixed some of the translation mistakes.
    • Weird Goblins. Explanations 
    • Bronze Sword. Explanations 
  • Permanently Missable Content: Or rather, Permanently Missable Hairstyles — some of the fancier hairdos can only be unlocked via Hair Design Guide. Unfortunately, said Guide happens to be a lottery item, and a rather rare one at that.
  • Play the Game, Skip the Story: True to the source material, you can easily ignore the main quests and go straight to hunt monsters, or just do the quests that gives you access to more game features. Even the game acknowledges this in one of the loading screen tips.
  • That One Sidequest:
    • The Adventurer Rank-Up sidequests are turning into these for casual players.
      • From Rank F to Rank E: At first glance, it doesn't seem to difficult: first take a picture of Ghostring, then submit a few drops to the NPC. Easy right? However, at this point there are already roving parties of players actively hunting "mini" bosses like Ghostring, so more often than not the monster will be dead within minutes of spawning. Second, one of the drops that need to be submitted is the Racoon Leaf, an already-rare drop from another mini-boss, the Smokie. The only other way to get the latter is through sending your pets regularly on Pet Adventures at Prontera to get the Prontera chests, which give you a small chance to get said Racoon Leaves. Good luck.
      • Moving from Rank E to Rank D is even worse, as not only does it require yet another rare material (3 Four Leaf Clovers this time), but one now has to both take a picture THEN defeat specific MINI bosses. What's worse, it forces a player to hunt down the Osiris MVP boss as the final requirement.
      • Rank D to C. It requires the player to have 1 million zeny (fortunately it won't be taken away), then go to Payon and give 1000 Evil Horns to the NPC. After that, the player has to kill the Doppelganger MVP boss. The players is also required to clear at least 70 floors of Endless Tower and finally, give three different boss drops and 500 Necklaces of Wisdom. The best way to get the item is to buy in exchange but all of them would be really pricey. Not to mention, it has a lot of detours on Prontera, Payon and Geffen.
    • The Collection-type sidequests introduced in Glast Heim update. They require the player to beat a Scaled Up version of a monster, collect its rare drops, and turn them to an NPC at the entrance of the dungeon. What makes them qualify as this trope is that the required monsters have triple the stats of their normal version, there can be only one of such at a time, and they take approximately three minutes to respawn.
