Ragnarok Online Getting Started in the Market Guide

Ragnarok Online Getting Started in the Market Guide by Ceer
I’m creating this post because I tend to keep saying the same things over and over again to different people.There are a few things you will need to start your adventure off on the right track, and one of these is money. A player with money, knowledge, and friends will always fare better over time than one who doesn’t.

This post will deal with the first one…money. Ragnarok Online is a game where most of the best gears are neither character bound, nor account bound. This means that they’re tradeable. Making zeny, the medium of trade, is desirable because you’ll want your characters properIy geared for the situations you take them into.

Step 1: Humble Beginnings

Everyone in RO starts with no money, no experience, and are only equipped with a knife and a shirt. Your first, and most basic task is to pick up all the loot you find. In the beginning, this is important because it helps you get on your feet quickly. If you’re the first or only person to kill something, the loot is yours by right. For now, just take everything and store it when you go overweight.

It’s okay to start on a class that can’t sell or make zeny particularly well if that’s the way you really like to play the game. Your second character particularly should be one that is good at selling or gathering items because all of the best leveling and pvp methods of the game require a net loss of income.

Step 2: Vending

There are 2 classes that are good for this. If you want to play a well rounded general character with many random abilities besides the vending, go for the super novice. They take a little bit of effort to level at first, but with a friend or 2, they’re doable. If you would rather dedicate your character slot to vending and have other characters pick up other tasks, or if you want the abilities of a blacksmith or alchemist, then make a merchant.

After you pick your vendor character, go ahead and take a trip through southern Prontera to see what people are selling. Then take a look in your storage and see if you can’t find something that people seem to be selling. For everything else, go here:


It should give you a good idea about what to sell and for what price. Some items can be purchased on the market and resold in other towns, or even field maps around the game, providing convenience to other players.

Step 3: Item Finding

Item drop rates apply equally to all characters in the game. Some characters are more equal than others though. The best characters for item finding are rogues because they can auto-steal from monsters they’re engaged in close-quarters fighting with. And hunters because of their high attack power, ability to use elements, and ability to attack from range quickly. Each of these characters has its merits.

After you pick your item finder, go and pick out an item that he’s good at getting and go for it. Below is a listing of maps with many items that can be gotten in bulk and sold off at a considerable profit. With them are the minimum levels your character needs to be to get the items in bulk easily. This list is brief, but not exhaustive. For a more thorough list, go down to “Full List of Creation Reagents”.

Major items to look out for:

Sometimes, equipments or cards drop. These really should be individually priced. For weapons/armor, if you have something drop that’s better than what you’re currently using, or the same as what you’re using, but with more card slots, go ahead and use it. For older stuff, check the market value and see if it’s not worth vending. Remember, an item’s NPC value isn’t a very good indicator of its usefulness. If something can be sold to another player, it always fetches a higher price…sometimes by ten times or more! As for cards, If you need them, go ahead and use them. Be sure to upgrade your equipment BEFORE slotting cards on, especially if you try to over-up your equips. That way, if your equipment breaks, you don’t loose the card too. If you don’t need a card, you can keep it for another character, or sell it on your merchant.

On some maps, there really are things that you should teleport from when you first see them. Also, there’s usually more than 1 map to find the monster you’re looking for. If you find it difficult/pricey/time consuming/annoying to get to one map, try another. You can look up alternate map locations here:


I won’t list the exact prices of each item because it varies from server to server, and even week to week in some cases. Prices normally rise and fall as various aspects of the game go in and out of fashion. A good merchant knows to buy items when they’re cheap, and sell when they’re expensive.

Full Lists of Creation Reagents:
Anything here can probably be sold to another player. The lists are lengthy and items typically go in and out of popularity for both hunting and consuming. If you’re leveling in an area, it may be a good idea to cross reference items you’re collecting with items here in case they can be sold off in bulk.
Archer: Arrow Crafting
Alchemist: Potion Creation
Blacksmith: Axes, Daggers, Swords, 2 Hand Swords, Maces, Knuckles
Sage: Create Elemental Converter
Assassin Cross: Create Deadly Poison

Step 4: Making Friends

A large portion of the game is devoted to making and maintaining meaningful relationships. This applies to Player Versus Environment, Player Versus Player, and economic activities. Expanding your circle of friends will help provide you with an edge over the competition in bringing your products to market or finding the products you need. Also, friends can help you hunt more difficult monsters with better drops, even MVP bosses.
