iRO’s Crimson Weapon Drops, Now in rAthena!

After reading Crimson Weapon and Item Random Options maybe you wonder how can I add drop Crimson Weapon like iRO on private server? If you read my topic on rAthena,
Monster Drop with Item Random Option, yet for Item Random Option, you can try implement this Crimson Weapon drop since yesterday for your Ragnarok server.

On iRO -International Ragnarok Online- the crimson weapons are new items. This group of items contain Crimson Spear [2], Crimson Lance [2], Crimson Rod [2] or Crimson One-Handed Staff [2], Crimson Knuckles [2], Crimson Violin [2],  Crimson Whip [2] or Crimson Wire [2], Crimson Two-Handed Staff [2], Crimson Revolver [2], Crimson Huuma Shuriken [2],  Crimson Saber [2], and Crimson Bow [2]. Yet some people on iRO calls the Crimson Weapons as Scarlet Weapons.

How does Crimson Weapon drop?

Some crimson weapons were added to monster’s drop list by replacing old drop from some monsters. Example for Pasana, it drops Crimson Dagger [2] and Crimson Saber [2] replacing Falchion [4] and Stiletto [3]. See the ‘old’ Pasana Drop here, and this for new Pasana drop list that drop Crimson Dagger [2] and Crimson Saber [2].

For the full list of monsters that drop Crimson Weapons, please look at news on iRO official website Episode 15.2 Crimson Weapon System.

What is relation between Crimson Weapon and Item Random Option?

Crimson Weapons on iRO are endowed with random element when the item is dropped by monster. iRO calls it as charmed. Player can obtain Crimson Weapon with different element for same weapon from same monster.

Example for Pasana, player kills Pasana then gets Crimson Saber [2] (aka Crimson Sabre [2]) has chance it will charmed with Water element. In same time, other player kills Pasana then gets Crimson Sabre [2] with Fire element.

But, Crimson Bow [2] and Crimson Revolver [2] will never be charmed!

How to add drop like Crimson Weapon on Ragnarok server?

  1. It’s recommended to use latest rAthena or at least since Item Random Option system was implemented.
  2. Download this diff file for Monster Drop with Item Random Option: mobdrop_randomopt.diff.

Here are screenshots I took while test this Random Option Drop on my offline Ragnarok server, not for Crimson Weapons. But for custom drop for Valkyrie Randgris that added Valkyrian Armor[1] and Valkyrian Shoes [1] as additional drop and MVP Reward.
