Release Date for Ragnarok Mobile Episode 5.0
Ragnarok M just announced on their FB page that Episode 5.0 “Midnight Party” will be released on July 24, 2019. This major patch will introduce lots of new content and features to the game.
In another announcement, a new ROM server will also be available on the same date and it includes Episode 5.0 features.
Check out our article about the upcoming new server called “Midnight Party” here for more details.
In China server, EP 5.0 came out just four months after the release of EP 4.0.
New Job Class — Sage and Bard/Dancer
The most anticipated content in EP 5.0 is probably the two new job classes: Sage and Bard/Dancer.
Sages are magical users similar to their counterpart Mage class. But they focus more on support, crowd-control and debuff spells instead of dealing raw magic damage.
Sage classes are able to wield Book and Staff type weapons.
The Sage class can advance to their Professor (2nd job) and transcend into a Sorcerer (3rd job).
Bard and Dancer
Bards/Dancers are the alternate class to Archers.
They can wield bows, but they are known for their musical instruments which allows them to play songs that buff their allies or debuff their enemies.
They are mainly used as support classes in PvP and War of Emperium. They can advance into the Clown/Gypsy (2nd job) class, and into Minstrel/Wanderer (3rd job).
These two new job class trees (Sage and Bards/Dancers) will finally complete all the main class trees in Ragnarok Mobile.
We can expect the alternate “for fun” job classes such as Ninjas, Gunslingers and Taekwons in the next major update (EP 6.0).
Niflheim Town, New Maps & Monsters
Niflheim, a.k.a. the Land of the Dead, will be accessible in Episode 5.0.
It is home to many undead monsters such as Loli Ruli, Bloody Murderer and the new MVP Lord of Death.
Along with the town map also comes a new Main Quest storyline that starts at Base Level 105.
The following maps will also be available:
- The Hazy Maze Forest
New 6v6 PvP Mode
In EP 5.0, players of at least Level 90 may compete in a 6v6 team PvP mode!
You can join and practice in the Relaxed Mode at any time of the day.
Or if you’re more competitive you can go for the Ranked Mode every Saturday at 2PM – 12AM.
Rewards are still not finalized, we’ll update this guide as soon as we get more info!
Full Guide: Guide to Weapon Synthesis for EP 5.0
Weapon Synthesis will be added to the game when EP 5.0 starts.
To synthesize a weapon, you’ll need copies of other weapons along with some materials.
Check out the Synthesis section of this spreadsheet for the complete list of materials so you know which ones you can start collecting.
The new synthesized version of the weapon will have improved stats based on the original weapon, as well as some effects taken from the other weapons used as materials.
What happens to refine, enchants and slots when Synthesizing weapons?
- Enchantments, Slots and Refinement of the base weapon is retained.
- Enchantments, Slots and Refinement of extra weapon/s are not retained.
- Broken, Enhanced, and weapons with cards cannot be used as extra weapons.
New Pets and Pet Fusion
Episode 5.0 will also come with several new pets.
In total, there will be 15 Pets that you can catch using taming items.
In addition, 10 other Pets will also be obtainable with a new feature called Pet Fusion.
As the name suggests, Pet Fusion will let you combine two or three pets into one more powerful Pet.
For example, a Poring and a Lunatic can be fused into an Obeaune, while Baphomet Jr. + Harpy can be combined into an Alice.
Check out the Pets section of this spreadsheet to see the complete list of recipes for Pet fusion.
These Pets are divided into 3 categories based on their stars: 3-Star Pets are more powerful than 2-Star and 1-Star.
Here are some other updates and changes that came to EP 5.0.
Again this is based from China server and might vary for SEA/Global server:
- New Character Level cap: Lv 120
- New Mentor Requirement Level: Lv 90
- New GVG castles that gives Sage and Bard/Dancer Artifacts and shards
- Pet Cosmetics
- New 3rd Job Class Skills
