         Finally, after years of trying to, I've actually organize a FAQ document. 
    This is my first time so please bear with me.
         The data, just like most people, is not my own data and should not be 
    credited on my behalf. It's from the game itself (from experiences) and from 
    publicly available RO updates data. Again, don't credit me!
         All I did was to organized/reformat it and render it easily available on 
    GameFAQs... GameFAQs only... get it.
         Take Note that you are free to copy/print this FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY!!!
    Don't take credit for the data since even I don't!
         None of the many forms of Public Distribution especially with MONETARY
    involvement would be allowed!!!
         Get It!!! If you do, well... you must be UGLY/DUMB!!!<- I hope that 
    passes the screening. ^_^
         This would be very short :D
                             IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS
    Why in the world am I doing this amazing "move"... ^_^
    1. The world of pRO has just recently adapted Turtle Island - It's in Alberta
       for the benefit of those who don't know where it is.
    2. People are currently asking everyone else, what's can --monster here-- do?
    3. A Monster's Skill is presently IMPROPERLY DISTINGUISHED. - I was told that 
       the poporings are doing bash, yeah right; and that the Skel Prisoners are
       doing enchant poison...
    4. In short, this is to give the proper outlook for everyone and terminate
       the ongoing CONFUSION plaguing pRO.
    5. The Official FAQ from pRO is not available due to lots of technical 
       problems lately - that is if they are going to publish one.
    6. This is currently the data on iRO, so my guess is that pRO has similar
       adaptation - because they are all RO nonetheless.

        A.6 Thief/Assassin Type
            Back Sliding - Bongun, Sage Worm 
            Cloaking - Frilldora, Ghostring, Whisper
            Detoxify - Obeaune

            Venom Dust - Argiope 
    *Buffs/Stat Boosting Skills will not be cast on you (asa ka!).
       e.g. Orc Lady - cast Inc. Agi on herself
     So is true with Detoxify and Status Recovery. I mean, why would a monster
     cast it on you anyway.
    *Double Strafe monsters waaaaaaaaaa, note that they have high DEX!!! Watch
     out, having 3 archer monsters attacking you, better run and do I mean run!!!
    *Wizard Type Skills have casting time... and limited cell area. It really is
     an advantage when a Minorous is going to cast Heaven's Drive, simply move a
     few steps back and you're safe.
    *Hiding Mosters are quite unfair. Hiding thieves don't and can't heal, but
     these creeps do. Luckily, they can't attack just like thieves. (wahaha!!!)
     But they do heal
    *Always watch out for cloaking Whispers - I get surprise most of the time
     having my HP drain without any enemy in sight! Another monster advantage
     since they can do this ANYWHERE. They don't need walls!
    *If there is anything everyone should hate... It's those poison attacks! Not
     only does it takes your HP little by little (it takes a lot of it) it also
     lowers down you attack and defense. Waaaah! Now we need those use to be use-
     less green herbs more than ever. 
    *Watch out for Sonic Blow - I hits 8 times remember! And you'll get stunned
     every once in a while. 1st job players watch out.
    *Obeaune will Detox herself all the time.
    *I still have to confirm how a Khalitzburg would do Grimtooth without hiding.
       B. Original Monster Skills

            Critical Slash - Goblin (Morning Star), Kobold (Morning Star), 
                             Orc Skeleton, Marina, Orc Zombie 
            Guided Attack - Zealotus, Stem Worm, Mysteltainn, Eclipse, Isis 
            Splash Attack - Khalitzburg, Abysmal Knight, Wanderer, Alarm, 
                            Skel Prisoner, Chimera, Mutant Dragon 
            Magical Attack - Clock Tower Keeper, Marduk, Wind Ghost

                         Zombie Prisoner, Ghoul, Zombie, Tarou, Side Winder  
            Lazy Attack - Merman 
    *The entire B section still needs some confirmation as to its "categorical 
    *When I hacked the life out of some Sohees the first day of the Turtle Patch,
     I actually did not gain any XP... now I'm sure this is how it works!!!
     - this will happen when you see a chinese word, I know how to read/write it,
     but rather not!
    *Silence/Blind (identified by the "...")  are the most annoying effect!!! - 
     you can't do anything with SP; you can't do anything, respectively.
    *Stun is pathetic IMO... you can't move for 3 seconds! --- I take this back, 
     I have to eat my words! Stun is as bad or as worse as silence/blind. It 
     doesn't feel like 3 seconds, it feels even more! Once hit, you're D-E-A-D! 
     Have a priest with you, you'll somehow be safe. But take note that Kyrie 
     won't save you!
    *Consecutive Attacks works just like double attack and double strafe. You'll
     be attack twice in one strike. Really bad! And I stress Really Bad!!! Since
     monsters with this skill are AGGRESSIVE and THEY MOB!!!
    *Again be warned of poison skills! At least you're not helpless like blind ^_^

    * I was just attacked by Orc Lord - it actually did endure - I died ^_^
    * I had my Osi Experiences (<-3x), I am usually found in Morroc lately, this
      guy is great, he can surely kill!!! He's in Agi Up mode, and he'll quagmire
      you (he always does, that's how I know that he's there)! And Read below, 
      he will teleport.
    * Just put this in your head: It's PVP in AI Mode... get it ^_^
    This is next part is actually a total rip off from iRO: 
    * All boss monsters will use the Two-Hand Quicken, Increase Agility, 
      Guided Attack, and Piercing Attack depending on the probability.  
    * All boss monsters will Teleport if they are attacked from beyond their 
      attacking range.  
    * Monsters with attributes will use attacks of their attribute.  
    Much of that rip off
    --------------------------------THAT'S ALL-----------------------------------
                           |  PRINT Until Here Only   |
    *After all that let me just say a few more things
        Cards? how much would they be worth... I better hunt one ^_^)
    ... Assassins would be wanted for their Detox (I got one when I was jb30 ^_^
        so much for a stupid mistake - that wasn't stupid after all)
    ... Shockwave would be max out as a necessity!
    ... Cure? Questionable, doesn't recover Poison! 
    ... Status Recovery has become more useful! So has Lex Divina! Have one in
        your function keys - VERY USEFUL for spell casting monsters and BOSSES!!!

       New Monsters not indicated - I'll try to find some data. As you would find
    no skill indicated for Sea Otter (it does a dark colored Soul Strike attack),
    Owl Duke (I really forgot what it does, but I've encountered a few summoned
    by players with a dead branch), and others.
                                     MY CHARACTERS
    I started playing pRO Feb 25/26 2004, well I started late so sue me ^_^
    I'm using FEMALE characters - though I am MALE
      - a lot and oh did I say a lot, I mean almost everybody ask me why.
      - a few annoys me by picking on my female character - kaasar kayo!
      - "ate" palagi tawag sa char ko pero ok lang
    May "13" lahat sila sa ending ng pangalan nila. Oy! Walang GAYA2x! Ako lang 
    ang me 13 sa huli, ako lang, asa ka pa!
    Kung gus2 nyo ko makita hanapin nyo! Anytime player ako!
    Fenrir: Normal Katar Assassin not Pure Agi, Pure AGI sucks IMO.
            Sonic Blow would miss that way, so what's the use of doing one!
    Iris: Novice(Archer)
    Chaos: TU Priestess - free labor sa resu bigyan lg ako 1 gem.
           DC/OCMerchant - mahilig mag sale to!
    If you know who I am... Don't PM me asking, ano po skill ng -monster-?
    I won't answer you, I'm not a Ragnarok Encyclopedia, I can't/won't memorized
    this! D ako ganun ka talino!!!
    Maglagay ka kaya ng FAQ sa tabi mo gaya ko.
    *I would like to mention that I hate looters, everybody does... And to the
     ******* huntress that looted my AoA, I'll Inc Agi monsters attacking you, 
     I'll find you!!! I'll hunt you down!!!
    Last,I have never been scammed in Fenrir, but I have been scammed 3x on Sarah.
    My aco/priestess is not a scammer (kahit pulubi talaga), kung na DC me sa 
    gitna ng deal di ko kasalanan yun! Lastly, Mag-iingat kayu sa mga scammers! 
    Dami nila sa Sarah! WARNING YAN!!!
