The Stamina system (a.k.a. Combat time or Fatigue system) is a new feature in Ragnarok M: Eternal Love. It can be confusing to understand at first, and this guide will help you clear things out! Here are the most important facts you need to know about the Stamina system in Ragnarok Mobile.
This Stamina system is added to the game to balance out the auto-attack functionality, preventing players from just AFK farming 24/7 and progress to the end game ASAP.
- You get 300 Stamina everyday. 1 Stamina = 1 minute, total of 300 mins (5 hours) worth of Stamina per day
- Attacking monsters consumes Stamina.
- When you consume all your Stamina, EXP and drop rates will be lowered. There are three levels of Stamina:
- Green (ex. 10/300) — max Stamina not yet consumed, normal exp and drop rates
- Yellow (ex. 310/300) — a few points beyond max Stamina, lowered exp and drop rates
- Red (ex. 900/300) — around 2-3x your max Stamina, significantly lowered exp and drop rates
- You will get 300 Stamina at 5:00 AM (GMT+7) every day (SEA server)
- If you don’t consume your Stamina for the day, it will be carried over to the next day. But you can only hold up to 900 total Stamina, so make sure to consume it before it reaches 900!
- Quests still give EXP rewards if you don’t have remaining Stamina
- Using Lightning Chain item will speed up your EXP and drop rates by 2x for 60 minutes, but will also consume your Stamina 2x faster. Useful if you don’t have time to play and want to consume your Stamina ASAP.
You can see your current Stamina points by clicking More > Settings in the top-right menu. It’s the yellow bar with the Combat time on it. In the screenshot above, I already consumed 352 out of 852 minutes worth of Stamina for the day. I still have 500 minutes left to whack some monsters!
Using your Stamina efficiently
The most efficient daily routine is to auto-grind during the day while at work or school (don’t forget to use the Monster Resistance bonus exp too!). Only use your precious Stamina for leveling your character or farming for materials.
Then once all your Stamina is consumed, do the other quests (main story quests, message board, etc) since usual tasks in quests such as talking to NPCs, taking photos, or killing 25 monsters don’t require Stamina. However if you don’t have much time to play the game, then it’s totally fine to just consume your Stamina while doing daily quests (main story/message board quests) along with Monster Resistance bonus.
Another important tip: combine your Lightning Chain consumption with stat food items. That way, the 30mins stat boost will be more valuable as it is used along with 2x EXP and drop rates!
How to replenish Stamina
Aside from the 300 Stamina reset per day, you can replenish up to 60 Stamina (60 mins) per day by listening to music. You can buy these Music CDs for 10,000 zeny each at the “Event Items” NPC in Prontera.
You can play the CDs on the Music Player in South Prontera. You can find it just below the portal. You can also just listen to other players’ CDs if they are playing music as well. You can check it by clicking on the music player.
While listening to music, you will gain 1 Stamina per 1 minute of music listened. A system message will notify you about this. So just let your character sit and enjoy the music for 60 mins while you do other stuff in real life. Just make sure to check every now and then that there’s music still playing.
IMPORTANT TIP: Move to Channel 1 as it has the most players listening to music. The music player will usually have more than 20 tracks in the queue.
You can also check in More > Settings menu how many minutes of music you’ve listened to. As you’ll notice your Stamina capacity will increase every minute.
I just ran out of Stamina! What do I do now?
You still have a few tasks to do even though you run out of Stamina like doing quests, talking to NPCs, exploring other features of the game, taking pictures for your Adventure Handbook, or even just talking to friends and guildmates!
Also take note that you will still get a pretty decent amount of exp and loots even beyond 300. When your Stamina turns red that’s when the rates are significantly low. I usually stop grinding/farming at around 400+.
