What exactly is Zero mechanism?
Here is a summery made by one of our players:
After all, why Zero in the server name? What does that mean? What is different about this server? This is a guide for you who want to learn more about the mechanics of Zero and everything the server has to offer.
"Ragna0 is a free Ragnarok Online MMORPG server. It distinguishes itself by being a based server on kRO:Zero. Not Renewal, Not Classic, Not Revo-Classic but simply, Zero. Ragnarok Zero is a new version of the game officially revamped in 2018 on kRO. It introduces skill rebalances, using renewal game mechanics and monster spawns. Having implemented Zero-exclusive features such as Fever Field & Optioned Equipment, Ragna0 aims to catch up to the current official kRO:Zero in terms of features & content. In addition, Ragna0 also adopts customized features to improve the player's quality of life and adds to the enjoyment, such as events." Source: Server Information

The classes had a major update on their skills. Making classes more competitive with each other, increasing the viability of builds. There is a greater synergy of skills with equipment, making the game more progressive. There were a lot of changes, and in order not to make the topic prolonged I will not put it here, but you can check the changes in these links:
"A random option is an extra effect bonus or stat bonus, which makes the weapon unique. There are many many different Random Options you can obtain. Many of the monsters in the wilderness holds precious weapons and equipment which they drops upon defeat. The weapons or equipment may or may not come with a Random Options. Some has more than 1 random option. You can also obtain Random option from other catalysts, such as Magic Bead sold by NPC in town." Source: Random Options

Zero brought a lot of new equipment, which, as I said, has synergies with the most diverse classes and builds. There are many new equipment, check out our page on the Wiki.
Expedition Gear are the ultimate equipment on the Ragna0. Ragna0 exclusive equipment set of Expedition, comes with 4 classes and special accessories. The Expedition set is devided in 4 classes, Class I is the best, then comes Class II, Class III and Class IV. You can obtain Class IV Expedition gear from instance treasures. Each set provides a specific bonus that will be better for certain class types. In addition, from set III, it is possible to put enchantments on your equipment. If your Body Armor is +9, you can enchant with an essence of class! Class essences have magnificent bonuses for each class. To make Expedition equipment you need to get items that only drop in the instances.

Forging gained new meaning in Zero mechanics. Before, the only reason to forge a weapon was to get an elemental weapon. In Ragna0, each successful forged weapon comes with extra Random Options. An unranked Blacksmith can obtain 3 random Options to it's crafted weapons. Rank 6 to 10 Blacksmith can obtain 4 random Options to it's crafted weapons. Rank 1 to 5 Blacksmith can obtain 5 random Options to it's crafted weapons. More than that, there are weapons that can only be obtained through the forge, which guarantee damage bonuses for certain skills.

The instances are kind of like a MMORPG dungeon. Each with a mechanic, join other players to face your challenges.
