====================
IV. Leveling / Game Guide
====================
--------------------
All:
--------------------
Well in this section I will explain where to level ,what weapons you should 
use, etc.

No matter which road you pick you will have to begin the same way.

You will begin in the training grounds. If you are new to the game this will 
teach you many things about the game so you don't act like an idiot while 
playing. They will put you through many tests and if you answer the questions 
correctly you will be rewarded. At the end of the training grounds you will 
take a test which will determine which class suits you the best. If you end up 
with them recommending you to be a thief you will be teleported to morroc and 
given extra zenny, but if you get stuck with another class tell them you want 
to go with your original class which is a thief and tell them to teleport you 
to Morroc.

You are now in Midgard the ragnarok world. 

This is the equipment/items/zenny they give you at the beginning:
1 Knife
1 Cotton Shirt

The items depend on how many questions you answered correctly.
Your zenny depends on if they recommended you to be a thief.

From now you will begin training.


Head to the northern exit which leads to the dessert. In the dessert you will 
find a couple types of monsters. You will see porings, pickys, Pecco Eggs, and 
Condors. 

At the beginning you will have to level on just porings, pecco eggs, and the 
occasional picky. When your HP gets low just use a healing item or wait until 
your HP recharges. Once you are base level 6 you should be able to kill 
Condors. Keep on killing these monsters until you are job level 10.

When you are job level 10 head back into Morroc and then go to the north 
western exit which will lead you to a dessert with a fountain and pyramids. 
Prepare your healing items because it will be the toughest run of your life so 
far. Don't even bother attacking any monsters in here, you will just get 
killed. Walk into the pyramid and try to stick to people that are stronger than
you. Walk through the maze until you find stairs that lead down. If you are in 
the right place you should be in a hallway. Go straight down the hallway and a 
NPC should be behind a counter. Talk to the NPC and he will send you out on a 
quest. You now exit the pyramid and head to the fountain outside. There should 
be another NPC waiting for you that will let you into a dungeon.

Now you must collect a semi-rare mushroom. This shouldn't take more than a 
while but beware, there are aggressive monsters there. Once you finish you 
should become a thief. Now walk into Morroc and take the northern exit.

You must now make a journey to Prontera. If you have lots of zenny you can just
buy a warp but if you don't you'll have to walk through the dessert. I 
recommend you walk through the dessert, itís a good way to get EXP.

Once you are in Prontera you can sell what you have collected in monster drops 
and you should have enough zenny to buy a Cutter or Main Gauche.
After you are done selling/buying head to the building in the northwest part of
town. There you must sign up in a mission to kill the monsters in prontera's 
sewers. After you sign up you will be teleported to the dungeon.

Once inside try killing thief bugs that are alone and eventually Tarou's and 
bats.

--------------------
By Base lv.20
--------------------
You should go to culverts level 2 and kill anything that you can kill.
If you are lucky you will be able to find Blades which you can either
use or just sell for money. Try to stay away from big groups of people
because they will only bring lag. Always leave atleast 1 jellopy on the
ground to attract monsters.

If you gather too many thief bugs and you attack there is a chance that
they will all gang on you at the same time so carry a couple of pots or
carrots. The culverts 2 is a very good place to gather money because of 
the constant monsters.

--------------------
Base Lv.30
--------------------
You should now go deeper into the culverts and fight the monsters in 
culverts 3. While down here you'll notice one big difference from culverts 2,
the thief bugs are now larger. These larger thief bugs are much stronger and
give out more exp. While down here you will also fight Hydras which have 
ranged attacks, if you lose HP for no reason a hydra is attacking you.

Like in culverts 2 try to stay away from groups of people. Do not go into the
next screen if you value your life. Try to drop as much Jellopys as you can
to attract alot of monsters.You will need a couple of healing items down 
here,

--------------------
Base Lv.35
--------------------
You should now leave the culverts and go to Prontera to sell your earnings. At 
this point you should have enough to buy a Stilleto from a discount merchant.
If you have any extra money buy a wooden mail. After that do not buy any more
armor...you won't be needing it.

After you buy a stilleto you will now make a journey to the closest upgrade
NPC. There are upgrade NPCs in Prontera, Payon and Morroc.

Once in one of those places head for the upgrade shop. Here you will have to 
pay to upgrade your stilleto. Upgrade your Stilleto until you get it to +7.
Once you are done upgrading leave. Keep in mind there's a chance of failure.

Now you will have to walk to Geffen. If you still have any money left warp
but it isn't a very long walk.

Once in Geffen go to the eastern exit and then on the next map go to northern 
exit. You will now be in a map with Squirrels and Snails 
(Cocos and Ambermites). Fight here until you are Base Lv.40. The cocos give 
decent drops so try to fight more of them.

--------------------
Base Lv.40
--------------------
You can go one map east of the map with Cocos and Ambermites to fight Horns.
By fighting here you will get more money and rares because Horns have a good 
chance of dropping valuable items. With the money each type of Assassin should 
gather the money necessary for some of their equipment.

The horns WILL hit you always carry pots here. There are Cocos, Horns, and
Lunatics in this map. From what I've seen the Lunatics here have a high 
percentage of dropping Pierrot Noses( In 1 hour I found 3 of them). The exp
may seem slow but its better than wandering around and wasting time trying 
to find a decent leveling place for your level(which you won't).

--------------------
Base Lv.45
--------------------
Now this is where the types of Assassins split.

--------------------
Critical Assassin
--------------------
A critical assassin should now go to Izlude to fight in bibiland dungeon level 
2 until they reach the job level required to be an assassin. If you have 
followed my guideline for stats you should be able to handle some Orc Zombies
with the help of pots. Bibiland 2 will end up costing less than Orc Dungeon
and you will really need the money in the future.

--------------------
Perfect Dodge Assassin
--------------------
You will have to stay fighting horns. You need the money that you will get 
from the rares. The exp from horns is almost equivalent to the exp you would
get in bibiland 2. Try to look for people selling Fortune Swords when ever 
you go to town. If you see a slotted Muffler or slotted shoes buy them.


--------------------
Hybrid Perfect Dodge/Critical Assassin
--------------------
A Hybrid assassin should now go to izlude to fight in bibiland dungeon level 
2 until they reach the job level required to be an assassin. Money is a big
factor in this build, even Jellopys are important. Pick up any item you see
even if it is just a jellopy. Orc Dungeon is not a good place for this build
because you will waste too much money on pots.

While leveling in Bibiland try to stay in small places, like behind the lv.3
entrance. I have found more enemies fighting around the lv.3 entrance than
anywhere else in Bibiland. You'll get very lonely at times if you want to get
out of the dungeon DO NOT WALK OUT. When you see that there is no people 
around you this is a signal for a giant group of Hydras somewhere up above.

A ASPD assassin should now go to izlude to fight in bibiland dungeon level 
2 until they reach the job level required to be an assassin. Orc Dungeon would
be a decent place for this build. You will make a measly profit but you will
get ALOT of experience. If you want to fight in Orc Dungeon I suggest you
fight with a group of people.

that will help you get important pieces of equipment. The skeleton soldier

section will become longer and the cost will change.
(BASED ON CURRENT RO ECONOMY [11/30/03])

Critical Assassin: 20-30 Million zenny

Perfect Dodge Assassin: 15-30 Million Zenny

Hybrid: 25-45 Million zenny

Max Attack Speed: 20-30 Millionn zenny
