Overview

About Mercenary System

Mercenaries are here to assist players during their journey in the world of Ragnarok. Similar to Homunculus, but instead of creature that grows alongside player, Mercenaries have fixed stats based on their level. Mercenary manager, Luke Narfez in Limit Group Headquarter (@go hq) will let you hire both Human and Monster mercenaries at some cost, some will cost you zeny, some will cost you Faith/Loyalty point and some requires both. You will receive Mercenary Scroll that you can use to summon the specific Mercenary upon hiring. Do note that Human Mercenaries in Limit RO are customized to balance with Renewal mechanism, their stats are updated from level 10 to 175.

Mercenary Features

  • Appearance - Even though you cannot change their appearance, they are quiet attractive for the eyes.
  • Upkeep - Unlike Homunculus and Pet, Mercenaries don't need food to stay alive however, they will leave once their contract ends.
  • EXP - Since Mercenaries don't level up, all the experience gained from battles goes to you!
  • Player vs Player - You can bring Mercenaries to PVP and WOE maps, although Mercenaries can't damage the Emperium
  • Separation - If a Mercenary moves more than 15 cells away it will be teleported to the your position.

Contract With Mercenary

The cost to hire Mercenary increases based on the Grade, the higher the Grade, the higher the cost that's for sure. The grade of Mercenaries that can be hired is not limited to your character's base level.

Loyalty

Loyalty or faith is an important element in Mercenary system, you need this to hire higher grade Mercenaries. Number of Loyalty Points is specific to each guild of Mercenaries, so for example if a player gains a large number of points with the Bowman Mercenaries, the amount will have no effect on their standing with the Fencer and Spearman Mercenaries.

Here are the ways Mercenary loyalty can be modified:

  • Fighting together - For every kills you or your Mercenary do, you get 1 Loyalty point.
  • Contract completion - For every contract completed (30 minutes), you get 25 Loyalty points.
  • Mercenary's death - For every Mercenary death, you lose 5 Loyalty points.
    • Monster Mercenaries do not give Loyalty points.

Contract Ending

There are 4 ways Mercenary contracts can be ended, intentionally or not:

  • Your death - When your character dies, the active Mercenary will run away.
  • Mercenary's death - When a Mercenary dies, he or she isn't coming back.
  • End of contract - A contract with a Mercenary ends naturally after 30 minutes.
  • Contract termination - When you dismiss a Mercenary, the contract will be terminated.

Mercenary Controls

Manual Control

Mercenary Details

Base Stats

The base stat of Mercenaries are fixed based on the Grade of the summoned Mercenary. However, based on one's Loyalty Points with that Mercenary's guild and the kill count, additional bonuses can be received while ASPD of any Mercenaries will always be fixed at 156.

Skills

Mercenary skills are based on the level of the Mercenary summoned, and one's Loyalty Points with the Mercenary Guild. Skills act as if they have been used by a Party member; for example, the Sacrifice skill will not function if the Mercenary's own level is not within 10 levels of the contractor. All supportive magic should function, with the following exceptions:
