You might be wondering why you cannot meet up and play with your friends in Ragnarok M: Eternal Love. The reason is because you have to be on the same channel. Although players are on the same server (e.g. SEA server), players are divided into different channels to prevent overloading the server.
Here’s how to change your channel server in the game via an NPC in Izlude.
1. Go to Izlude town
First, teleport to Izlude through Kafra Teleport Service. If you just started out and don’t know where Izlude is, just walk one South, one East from Prontera.
2. Talk to the Change Channel NPC (Channel Teleporter)
Once you’re in Izlude, talk to the Channel Teleporter NPC in the upper part of town.
3. Enter your desired channel number
Click the Enter Line # button and type in the number of the Channel you want to switch to.
Changing channels will cost you 99 Zeny each time. But the Channel Teleporter NPC will let you change channels for free on your first change.
You can check your current Channel in the top right corner of the screen. For example I’m currently in PH54 or Channel 54 of the Philippines region.
Unfortunately there is no easier way to switch channels and you have to do this everytime you want to change channels to meet your friends.
MVP/Mini Boss Penalty
An important thing to note when switching channels is that you get a 2 hour penalty on MVPs and Mini Bosses: you can’t deal damage to them for 2 hours after you change a channel.
So keep this in mind especially when you’re hunting on MVPs and Mini Bosses!
After changing channels the game will load a bit and your channel number will update on the top-right. You can now party up with your friends and start grinding!
Here’s another tip: If you want to replenish on Stamina quickly, switch to Channel 1 as it has the most number of players listening to music. The music player will usually have more than 20 tracks in the queue!
